2016 Harley-Davidson Softail Slim S Review

By Bryan Harley Twisting the throttle on the 2016 Softail Slim S I feel I should be wearing a red, white and blue jumpsuit and carrying a star-spangled shield. Maybe it’s the big U.S. Army-style star emblazoned on the side of the tank that makes me want to channel my best Steve Rogers. Perhaps it’s [...]

Product Spotlight: UltraCool Oil Cooling System

Bell Helmets is leading the way for the 2014 riding season by continuing to release cutting-edge style lids for all types of riders.

Seat Pad Helps a J&P Staffer Get to the ‘Bottom’ of a Problem

I’m not in the habit of endorsing products, but every now and then I run across something that’s truly magnificent, and this is one of those times. I’m also not a big fan of trying out new stuff or gaining new experiences.

For example, I find that I order the same thing for breakfast almost every time I go out. I get up at the same time every day — weekends included. I tend to wear the same style of clothing at all times, and if I go to McDonald’s, I religiously order the same value meal.

I’m guessing I just know what I like, and to change things without … Continue Reading

Fall sneaked up on us again this year, leaving some of us procrastinators hanging in the wind as ATV season gets into full swing.

Two for Tuesday: Dunlop Q2’s Get the Job Done on the Street

Just before I set out on my trip to Sturgis this year, I decided to throw a new set of shoes on the ZX-10R. I’d heard all the hype surrounding the Dunlop Q2’s when these tires were released a while back, what with the media claiming they were great, resulting in faster lap times and so on and so on.

But the hype still left me wondering about the tire’s abilities on the street. I was pretty certain they performed quite well at the hands of experts on the racetrack, but I had questions about how well they would operate under a bit of a whack job like myself (especially … Continue Reading

Rivera Primo Remains a Top J&P Cycles Supplier

It goes without saying that suppliers are the lifeblood of J&P Cycles, and one of our longest-running partnerships is with Rivera Primo, a quality motorcycle parts manufacturer that operates out of a 40,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility in Whittier, Calif.

Formerly known as Rivera Engineering, Rivera Primo was founded by a television repairman named Mel Magnet who came up with the great idea back in the early ’70s to use a British carburetor on the Harley-Davidson V-twin engine. This carb, which was usually found on Jaguars and MG automobiles, was known as the SU (abbreviation for Skinners Union). The SU was fantastic right out of the box, and Mel discovered … Continue Reading

Two For Tuesday: Akrapovic Brings Its Power to Harley-Davidson

It’s not often in the motorcycle world that something truly new comes along. But in the case of longtime performance exhaust manufacturer Akrapovic, something new has come along and it’s moving pretty fast.

For years, Akrapovic has set the standard as the best of the best when it comes to performance sport bike exhaust systems, a factoid that is reinforced by the many factory superbike teams that install them on their bikes at the highest levels of racing.

And now, Akrapovic has made the decision to cross over a bit, releasing a new line of exhaust equipment for late-model Harley-Davidson motorcycles. They brought with them an innate ability for … Continue Reading
