I Want It All – In Search of The Perfect Tire

 I want it all from my tires, super sticky, long life and a good ride. Unfortunately, that's not a reality, with tires there generally has to be some compromise. If you get a sticky tire you won’t get long life and vice versa. Those facts have not stopped me from looking for the holy grail [...]

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 [...]

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.
