Mar Automotive

There are certain things you can do yourself and there are certain things you should leave to the experts with the real tools. I’ve lapped valves before. It’s cool to play around with doing that for fun, but really… let the experts make sure your head is legit. Mar automotive is an engine machine shop […]

Gringo S – “The Alex Quinn of Motorcycle Helmets”

Alex Quinn trend setter? I don’t even know whats going on here but it made me laugh (sorry Alex). Watch at the following times: 0:34 2:26 4:44 And for any ladies that like what they see you can also creep on him in this other Revzilla video:

F*ck Yo Fenda

Not running a front fender has been cool since motorcycles were invented, but get caught in the rain and you’ll wish you had one. The common bandanna trick is really just a vain attempt at mitigating the epic rooster tail of water aimed directly at your face, so the innovative folks at West Eagle (EasyRiders […]

New Biltwell Gringo S: Finally a Gingo worth a Dinero

Most, if not all, of you are already quite familiar with the Biltwell Gringo helmet, and most of you (i hope) read my Gringo vs. Daytona review, where I matched up the two vintage full face juggernauts. If you did, indeed, read that post, you would have noted the biggest plus with the Daytona Retro […]

Yamaha Brings Back The SR400

It looks like Yamaha is bringing back the trusty ol’ SR400 and it is kick start only. I’m liking the direction Yamaha is heading, but at $5990? Seems a little steep for a small displacement kick only bike that will get you run over on the highway. More details HERE

A Better Barbour?

Don’t tell Ben and Andrew but there just might be a more practical alternative the the classic Barbour and Belstaff jackets we all know and love. The classic waxed cotton Barbour International or Belstaff Tourist Trophy do an OK job of keeping you warm and dry, but that is about it. Imagine a jacket that […]

Union Garage Robinson Jacket

I don’t know about you, but I have a pretty big problem with impulse buys. Ever since I was a little kid if I saw something I wanted… I had to have it immediately. I was home sick from work the other day and I was watching Dr. Oz. The episode was about what he […]

This week I have pulled out some super warm, economical and understated moto gloves to keep those sausages from freezing as we head into the colder months. The first pair are the Held Warm N Dry. Held has a stellar reputation for making […]

AFX FX-76 3/4 Vintage Helmet

(Weekly gear review by Alex Q) So I have decided that there has been enough talk about old shitty motorcycles and ways to skirt the law while looking for places to camp, but not enough discussion about motorcycle related gear. We all know (whether or not we admit it to ourselves or others) that at […]

Spare Parts – Philadelphia

I just saw this on Silodrome blog and figured local Philly riders needed to check it out. Spare Parts has been a staple in Philadelphia motorcycling for decades and if you’re a local you’ve most likely met Roland and/or Scott. If you haven’t, stop by a Two Wheel Tuesday at the Abbaye sometime. Good guys […]

Revzilla | Icon 1000 Rimfire Gloves

I bought these gloves mid-summer on the recommendation of my buddy Jim at Revzilla. I was looking for something simple and classic but with some modern protection. I wanted to try something other than the standard horsehide work gloves or Mechanix brand gloves I would normally wear which don’t offer too much protection. There’s tons […]
