Alpinestars Web Gore-Tex Boot Review

"I’ve had quite a few boots over the years. The Alpinestars Web Gore-Tex boot has been one of my all-around favorites"  I’ve had a pair for about eight years now.  They’ve held up very well.  They’ve kept my feet warm and dry through a lot of rainy, cold weather.  They stay comfortable on all but the [...]

Ten Bikes I Would Have Traded a Kidney for In 2018

Let me start off by saying I haven’t ridden all these bikes but I have lusted after them from afar. Hence the reason for them making this list. I think we could be witnessing some of the best times in motorcycle manufacturing history. Companies venturing out and building bikes that differ from their normal practices, [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Bell SRT Modular Helmet: Review/ Test Ride

The Bell SRT Modular Helmet has the pedigree of a race helmet, a finely tuned safety device not for the track but for everyday riding. With must-have features like a flip up chin bar, speaker pockets and eyewear compatibility wrapped inside a fiberglass composite shell, all pushing the boundaries of a modular helmet for the [...]

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 [...]

Cardo Scala Rider PackTalk

Until recently, I have never used a communication system on a motorcycle. SoI figured the best time to get started would be on a business trip from Dallas to Daytona for Bike Week. I road down with a work colleague; me on my Harley Ultra Classic and he on his Ducati Panigale. These are two [...]
