Random Motorcycling Tip #24: Riding in the Heat

Random Motorcycling Tip #24: Riding in the Heat

Last Wednesday I rode my motorcycle to work. As usual, I wore street clothes (shorts, A-shirt, t-shirt) underneath my motorcycle jacket, and overpants. As usual, I wore my chest and back protector, my motorcycle boots, and motorcycle gloves. While hardly anyone in Minnesota wears a helmet, I wore my full-face Bell Star helmet. As usual. […]

I review the 2009 version of the Fieldsheer Corsair textile motorcycle jacket. It was a bargain at $140 on sale, but the straps leave something to be desired.

Motoport / Cycleport Ultra II Air Mesh kevlar pants and jacket: take two

My altered Ultra II Air Mesh kevlar jacket and pants arrived while I was away in California last week. The initial order was very mis-sized, and I had sent the jacket back to have it resized, and the knee armor on the pants relocated. After almost three weeks of waiting, I was really anxious to […]
