Gerbing makes some great heated gear. I use it during the winter months in the northwest and it adds a good 20 days to my riding season every year. If it ain't raining or freezing I'll ride.

I had fallen into the habit of putting my wallet in the inside breast pocket of my jacket. I am...
Hello fellow riders!
This fall I finally moved up to a full-sized Vulcan S from the little bikes (160, 125) I had been riding before. Since it was too late to get into one of the Motorcycle Safety Foundation courses here, I took the "Street Strategies eCourse" online. (I'll get to the full...
