Arai Defiant-X, Worth the Money

I have a problem….pretty sure I’m addicted to expensive helmets. So lucky for me I was invited to the launch of the Arai Defiant-X in Daytona. Now like I said, I have a helmet hoarding issue so I’m not new to Arai helmets (have around 10,000 miles on an XD-4) but getting the whole company backstory [...]

Kriega Urban WP Messenger Bag Review

We're no stranger to Kriega luggage here at J&P. Several of us ride with their luggage, and Rich did a great job breaking down their tail bags in his article. Tail bags aren't the only item in Kriega's arsenal, though. I'll be putting the spotlight on their Urban WP Messenger Bag. I've been commuting almost daily [...]

Road Tested: National Cycle Flyscreen

I ride the snot out of my Kawasaki Z900 RS. It's a sweet bike with great performance and rad 70's muscle bike style. Unfortunately, that style means it could use an upgrade in the wind protection department. Sadly, being a new model, I was not spoiled for choices; my options consisted of the $350 Kawasaki [...]

Kenda Cataclysms Motorcycle Tires

When I first received my set of Kenda Cataclysms Motorcycle Tires, they gave me a very "sporty" impression. These tires just *look* like they're made for a more aggressive driving style. With no center tread, I was leaving behind what I'm used to and stepping out of my comfort zone. Like most tires these days, [...]
