AltRider Upper Crash Bars Assembly for the BMW F 800 GS


We hope coming out in March.  Yep TT had them first but since we have AltRider bars on our bikes, we shall be getting these for a few reasons.  I believe they will offer more protection but also we will mount Aux lights to them.  Since BMW raised the signals on the 800GS it’s been difficult for […]

HEIDENAU K60 SCOUT TIRES | MC TESTED


Funny we have been using these tires since 2010 and surprised this reviewer just heard of them.  We get tons of mileage out of them and I would disagree on one thing.  Not a 50/50 tire, more like 60/40. 😉 We have them on our bike 24/7, 365 days a year. Have them on our […]

2014 Ural Gear-Up Sidecar Review


This bike has always intrigued me…. By Wes Siler    RideApart Until now, riding a Ural sidecar has been an exercise in survival. With engineering dating back to before the Second World War, things like performance, handling and braking were, in lieu of a clever analogy, just plain terrible. For the first time fitted with fuel-injection, […]
