Clash Of The Titans: Garmin Vs TomTom

There’s a small town in the Greater Boston Area that goes by the name of Belmont. Back in 2013, a woman was driving home with her kids, and her GPS told her to turn right- right onto a railway track.  Now, most people in this situation would have had an appropriate reaction along the lines of “What the hell?” before driving home, trying to remember if the T&C on their warranty card was past the date of expiry.  But this woman was not most people.  Because she ended up turning right- right onto the railway track.  For those of you…

The Best Intercoms That Are Cheap Sena Alternatives

If you’re never ridden in a group ride before, it can seem daunting. For starters, you have no idea about whether the other guys in the group who you just met and are trying to look cool in front of think you’re weird for walking with your chest and shoulders out. Yeah, a lot of things that I don’t miss about being 19. Teenage insecurity aside, it still can be overwhelming to keep up with the dynamics of a group ride your first couple of times. In staggered formation (as all group rides are), you always have to stay in…

3 Motorcycle TPMS Options For Longer, Better Rides

As riders, one of the last things we want is a flat tire – especially not one when we’re doing over 60 miles an hour. Interestingly enough, I’ve had two punctures in the last three months alone. The first one was when I was joining a freeway, but right before I sped up, a fellow rider waved me down.  A month later on a beautiful early Sunday morning, I grabbed my keys from the bedside table, ready to head out and there it was – a very flat rear tire. It’s even scarier when I realized I could’ve been riding…

Love riding videos? Halocam M1 vs Blueskysea Motorcycle Dash Cam

Life isn’t fair most of the time. Back in 2011, my brother got t-boned by a car that ran a stop sign onto a country road. It wasn’t exactly a hit and run…but the driver did leave after 2 minutes of them exchanging verbal blows. And exchanging their number plate details. My brother was lucky to be in full-body gear (reminder), but his motorcycle wasn’t. The frame on the right side was damaged and his front forks and radiator were bent hard. He took the guy to court, but his lawyer didn’t have a lot to work with.  There were…

10 Best Women’s Motorcycle Gloves That Look Incredible

I stared at my Ninja ZX-11. Barely any scratches, it was a week old. “How long until I get good at riding?” “You do it for about 5 years until you get a false sense of invincibility.”  That was over two decades ago. Even though my brother was joking, he was right. Especially about the false sense of invincibility. I’ve ridden thousands of miles ever since I hit the road. Accustomed myself to all the riding conditions. I’ve also acquainted myself with hundreds of riders along the way.  And I’ve got into a lot of accidents, armed with different levels…

Checking Your Phone Every 10 Minutes? Garmin Zumo 595LM vs TomTom Rider 550 Review

Do I really need GPS? I don’t have amnesia… but my memory isn’t exactly photographic.  Neither is yours. Which is a problem. You can’t afford to go by your non-photographic memory. Especially when you’re riding through the city.  Did I miss the right turn? Or turn right at the wrong turn? Do I turn right at this turn? And if I catch a signboard or a landmark at the last minute, I can’t switch lanes.  Outside the city, the state of affairs is even worse. Unless you like having awkward conversations with strangers you don’t know for directions.  Or ride…
