Tips for Insuring
Your Vintage Motorcycle
Source: Vintage Motorcycles Online
Motorcycles are expensive and motorcycle
insurance is a primary reason why. This is especially true when it
comes to vintage bikes. Insurance rates for motorcycles are naturally high. A
classic bike exacerbates the issue because of the high value of the bike and
the increased theft rates.
For those considering a vintage bike, here are a series of
tips that will help you limit the cost of insurance.

Five Reasons to
Commute by Motorcycle
A Guest Post by Chris White
While commuting to and from work by car and motorcycle both
have their advantages, sometimes one is just more effective than the other
depending on the circumstances, such as the weather, road conditions, and the number
of you travelling – you’re not going to go on a family shopping trip on your
CBR600 now are you? But without a doubt, travelling by motorbike is much more
fun and far less frustrating!
Getting out on the [..]

Sport Strap, a F8 Cleaning cloth, a pair of MagTraxion™ Magnetic Dry Eye Eyecups

My leathers have been with me since I started motorcycling,
I tend to wear them whenever I’m riding.
They are faded from the elements, stretched and saggy from
but they still keep me from taking abuse.
My leathers bare the scars, scrapes and abrasions from a few
slips and some spills,
and my leathers still keep me warm from those morning chills.
Despite them being my body guard we have become old friends,
going on long rides together taking on hills, valleys [..]

Bates Boots Revisited
I wrote a review in June of "09 of Bates E02264 5" Defender Tactical Boots. Well they have served me well for quite some time and as many miles at work, and for riding. I finally wore the tread just about clean off of them. They are a little worse for wear but the zippers and everything have held up just fine. So fine, in fact, that I went out looking for a new pair. Here are some photos of the worn out boots:
