Help! I need new tires! – Update

Whelp, at around 12400 miles, its time for some new boots. I can squeeze a couple more thousand miles on my tires before replacing them, so what better way to figure out what to buy than by making a blog post about it (and hopefully y’all can help me out too). Depending on your riding style…

Bung King Crash Bar & Highway Peg| Review

After my accident last year, and seeing all the cosmetic damage that was caused from being rear ended, I knew I needed a crash bar. I didn’t like the rounded bars that Harley offers, so I decided to look into an aftermarket option. I had seen so many Dyna’s and stunt FXR’s with this straight…

10,000 Mile Harley Davidson Iron 883 Update

Check out my initial review of the Harley Davidson Iron 883 here and here! I’ve had this motorcycle since November of 2016 and I’ve racked up 10,000 miles in about 7 months. I have a lot to say about the Iron, which I think y’all newbies or those interested in the Iron might find interesting,…

Pro tip: Always Wear Sunscreen! 

I recently posted about new earphones that I purchased to help hearing loss prevention while I ride, but I also want to share this post regarding skin and sunscreen. I’ve been on multiple day trips where I ride all day – in direct sunlight. Not only do I feel dehydrated on these trips, my skin…

Plugfones | Review + Update!

I first heard about Plugfones through Reddit (surprise surprise) when I was looking for a way to incorporate my music/route directions with ear safety. I’m not a fan of impulse purchases, but after reading a few good recommendations/reviews and it probably being payday, I made the purchase. I typically don’t use headphones in the morning…

The Search for the Perfect Swing Arm Bag

I love my backpack, and I plan to keep wearing it regardless of the luggage I purchase, but it’s time to store some of my tools and first aid kit in a separate bag. My budget is about $150 and I’m looking for a simple black bag, bonus points if it’s adjustable for use in…

How to Clean Your Helmet | Guide

After my Vegas and Yosemite trip, it was time to clean my *Scorpion EXO-R410 helmet. I’m using a microfiber cloth, *Dr. Bronner’s castile soap, and warm water. I soaked the microfiber cloth in the water and a few drops of soap, and covered the helmet for a few minutes. Soaking the helmet helps release some of the…

Protect Ya’ Dome!

I am a HUGE advocator of #ATGATT. My idea of ATGATT is a jacket with armor, Kevlar pants with armor, motorcycle specific gloves and boots, and most importantly a full face helmet. Sometimes I feel tempted to purchase a 3/4 or half helmet like these:   These style helmets are popular among cruiser riders, especially…

PSA: Big Sur CLOSED

To anyone out there planning a trip up/down the coast along Big Sur: plan ahead. Pfeiffer Canyon Bridge on Highway 1 cracked and continues to sink and deteriorate, leaving the bridge inaccessible for travelers wanting to take a trip along the coast. The road is only open on certain hours on the weekends to allow…

What’s In My Motorcycle Bag/Backpack?

I’ve done a post on what I carry in my makeup bag when I travel on my motorcycle, but I figured this one is a bit more practical (and unisex!). I purchased my faux leather bag from Nordstrom Rack for ~$40, and since then noticed that it’s a knock off design for the  $295 Rebecca…

Quick Clean Makeup Off Helmet Pads

I try to deep clean my cheek pads at least once a year, by soaking them in a baby shampoo or Dr. Bronner’s soap bath, but for quick cleaning and disinfecting the cheek pads from makeup and dirt, I use alcohol. This might not be the safest method for longevity/wear in your pads, but for those…

Commuting on a Motorcycle

Out of curiosity, I decided to examine if there is anything to gain by commuting to work on my motorcycle. I’ve seen many people post on Reddit asking for advice on commuting as a way to cut down time due to traffic, fuel cost, and price difference between buying a car or motorcycle. Unfortunately for most readers, I…
