Does Heated Gear Work? Off the Rack and On the Road

 Starting as early as October here in South Dakota you could be in danger of losing your precious riding season due to bad weather, namely snow and freezing temps. This winter the snow came a bit early, then it left. Leaving dry pavement and cold air. Generally if there’s at least semi-dry pavement (or dirt [...]

Dixxon Flannel Craze – Is It Actually Worth It?

"I bought the J&P Cycles Dixxon Flannel during the release at the Sturgis Rally and now I am hooked on them." Could you imagine walking into a J&P Cycles retail location and instead of walking out with shiny, new motorcycle parts you find yourself walking out with a new wardrobe? I don't have to imagine [...]

Does This Thing Really Work?

Believe it or not, my favorite product that wowed me in 2018 was Anti Monkey Butt Powder. Working on the events team for J&P Cycles will take you from the “dry heat” in places like Laughlin, Nevada all the way to the Daytona Beach, Florida “moist heat”. After a grueling 12 hour setup, nothing soothes my [...]

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 [...]

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, [...]
