Maybe it's time for new boots? Hard to say.
My trusty Icon Variant helmet was getting a little long in the tooth. Holy crap, last week I realized it is almost six years old. I determined my head shape leans towards the long-oval which limits the helmets I can wear. There are a few intermediate-ovals on the long'ish side I can wear but most... Continue Reading →
Buying used gear or parts is a great way to save yourself some money. On the flip side, it's a great way to make a few bucks and subsidize new moto-purchases. But seriously, some of you folks need to polish your skills on being a buyer. Shitty sellers exist too, but I've found FAR more... Continue Reading →
My Dainese Torque Out boots have seen a lot of miles. Maybe not as much as some folks, but I figure in almost 8 years they've seen over 70,000 miles.

The price was right and they fit pretty well so I scooped them up. I'd known about Motoport/Cycleport for a couple years,... Continue Reading →
Lately my bike had been acting a little tired. Slow to spool up, hesitant at low speed, running choppy at small throttle openings. I figured it was just a 10 year old 75,000 mile bike showing its age. But then the other day I noticed when I was twisting the throttle, the grip was moving... Continue Reading →
Picked up some new (to me) gloves at Yellow Devil Gear Exchange's closing sale. Sad Jessica is leaving us, but happy about her new opportunities. Look for a gear review after I put some miles on these.
