  • Review LEE PARKS DESIGN DeerTours® PCi Black Motorcycle Gloves

    BigScotty - Big Biker Lifestyle Blog
    29 Nov 2014 | 3:00 pm
    I have owned (and still own) more pairs of motorcycle gloves than I've owned motorcycles. And I own several motorcycles. But for some reason I never have much luck finding the perfect riding glove.I think that may have changed - but the news isn't all good.I have been reading about the advantages of deer skin gloves versus cowhide gloves. Turns out that the deerskin is better. The 2.75-plus-ounce deerskin used in the Lee Parks Design gloves may be supple and offer surgical-glove-like dexterity, but it's still more abrasion-resistant than cowhide. And that's just part of what make these…

    I'VE been running this open face DMD Vintage helmet since I bought my first Harley around six months ago.It’s not what I’d usually wear but I felt as though a bit of 70’s styling was missing from my life, having only ever really owned modern race lids.If I was auctioning this helmet on eBay I’d list it as ‘well used’ - it’s seen its fair share of rain and been bumped around quite a bit too. Despite the mistreatment it’s held up well, revealing no visible scratches or water marks on the matt finish.Not everybody wants a shark on their helmet…

  • That ’70s Show: new Bonneville, vintage style

    Chris Hunter
    17 Dec 2014 | 9:01 am
    Most builders rhapsodize about their bikes, scattering superlatives like autumn leaves on a country road. Kev Taggart describes his Triumph Bonneville T100 as “Small, squat, and tough as old boots.” Kev can afford to be blunt. He’s one half of the English workshop Spirit of The Seventies, and a man with nothing left to prove. If there’s a phrase to sum up Spirit bikes, it’s “iron fist in a velvet glove”—and this T100 continues that fine philosophy. It’s called TR9C, a nod to Triumph’s famous Trophy models of the 1950s and 1960s. Hence the slight retro…

    Wesley Reyneke
    16 Dec 2014 | 9:30 am
    Unless you’ve been living under a lump of naturally occurring solid aggregate, you’ll know that scramblers are all the rage right now. And by ‘scramblers’ we loosely mean bikes with a go-anywhere attitude, upright ergonomics and retro-cool looks. A Harley 1200 is not the obvious platform for this style. But some stellar Sporty-based examples have rolled out of garages lately, and this is one of the best. It’s from Renard Speed Shop, and it’s the Estonian outift’s first Harley build. The commission came from Bertl’s, a small Harley dealer in South Germany. The…
  • Enter Sandman: French Atelier’s Yamaha TW125

    15 Dec 2014 | 9:01 am
    The Yamaha TW125 is one of the oddities of the motorcycling world. It’s short, high-ridin’ and underpowered. It doesn’t sound promising—but over the past 15 years, the TW125 has built up a strong fan base. And if you’ve ridden a fat-tired TW over the sand dunes, you’ll know how much fun it can be. Despite its trifling capacity and 11 horses, it feels like a ‘big toy.’ And that’s the spirit Le French Atelier decided to amp up. LFA is a new workshop based in the western suburbs of Paris, near Versailles. It’s run by three young friends with a knack for upgrading older bikes…

    Many of our female readers have asked for a roundup of the best motorcycle gear for women. So here it is, written by one of our favorite motojournalists, the Motolady. Even with the growth of the women’s population within the motorcycle industry, the general consensus is that there isn’t enough women’s gear. And, yes, there are fewer options for ladies who ride than their male counterparts. But we mustn’t forget the many good looking and protective gear options we do have. Not all of them can be covered here, but it’s a good taste of the safe and sexy gear on the market. Helmets…
  • Upgrading the Triumph Scrambler, Swedish Style

    Chris Hunter
    12 Dec 2014 | 9:01 am
    The Triumph Scrambler looks pretty good straight out of the box. But a few well-judged tweaks can lift it to a whole new level. As much as we love radically modified Triumphs, it’s subtle custom jobs like this Gothenburg-based machine that really get our motors running. It’s the kind of build that mixes practicality with traffic-stopping looks. This Scrambler belongs to Andy Olsson, who manages the Vans brand in Sweden. “I wanted to convert my stock Scrambler to something a lot more city-oriented,” he says. So he handed it over to Mikael, Olof and Daniel of Mod Moto. “I told them I…

    From the outside it would seem Moto Guzzi built the V7 (V700) back in the late '60s and then said, “yeah, that’s good enough,” with only a sliver of updates every year. The 2014 Moto Guzzi V7 Racer is not a retro, throwback, but rather a real vintage bike with the feel and functionality of a bike of yesteryear. Luckily though, it retains all the fun too--with none of the headaches of owning a classic bike. Reliable, fast, easy to work on, simple and cheaper than a restoration, the V7 Racer has all the good with little bad. It's easy to ride with a nimble feel and soft clutch, it'll zap…

    This week, I've added a couple of hardware mods to Scarlett, my 2014 URAL Patrol Sidecar Rig to both improve the ergonomics for yours truly and protect the rig's belly pan or bottom of the engine.First the ergo mod.I found what I call barbacks, but the manufacturer calls Handlebar Risers.  Regardless, the purpose is to move the handle bar back about 1.25 inches and up about 1 inch.This way, I don't find myself leaning slightly forward to get a comfy grip on my bar and I can ride with a straighter back, leading to more long range comfort.  That's the plan anyways, I'll see how I feel…

  • Upgrading my camera

    29 Nov 2014 | 2:42 pm
    It had been in the plans for a while now, for me to get a new camera and give my Nikon AW110 Point and Shoot to Martha for her use. I thought I had narrowed it down to a Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS35 with a 20X Optical Zoom and the standard features I'd found good to have for pictures destined for this blog.  So Martha went and picked one up for me at Costco but when she got it home we found issues.Someone had pilfered the charger unit and cable, the picture count on the camera was in the 500s and the pictures I took as test pictures came out slightly blurry!  Very disappointing but at…

Chloe gave her waving arm a real work out. She seemed far more into it and excited about taking the ride than in years past. I don’t know the reason but I’m glad about it.

    China is a funny country in a not so funny way. While most countries generally think motorcycles are a viable way to cut traffic congestion and reduce pollution in cities, the Chinese are going the other way. They have started to ban motorcycles in major cities like Beijing and Shanghai (plus another 200 cities across the country). These strict laws by the government are having a huge impact on bike manufacturers like Harley-Davidson who thought the new found wealth of the Chinese would make it an easy market to increase their sales. How wrong they were. There are however a number of small…

    It’s difficult not to love Yamaha’s timeless XV750. It’s a bike that was intended as a cheeky Japanese tilt at America’s star-spangled Harley market, but now-a-days it can take on pretty much any custom role assigned to it with mucho aplomb. Café racer? Bobber? Tracker? The bike’s been there and done that. And add that to the fact that the bike used an engine-as-stressed-member design, a rear mono shock and adjustable pneumatic suspension and you have a bike that was light years ahead of its competition. Speaking of which, it’s time to meet the builder…

    Written by Martin Hodgson. At first glance this is a café racer based on a BMW boxer obviously built by a talented team. But as you take it all in you realise it’s builds like this that finally and empathetically make the statement that the elite of custom bike building is no longer exclusively a V-Twin domain. It’s no surprise then to see big names like Roland Sands and Marcus Walz turn their hands to Metric bikes. But this is what Lorenzo, Delano and Daniel from Nozem Amsterdam do, take metric, often unconventional bikes and turn them into elite custom creations. The basis for the…

I took this opportunity to take my girlfriend out on a scooter ride. It was my first ride in over five weeks. We rode around several of the nearby lakes. Even though it was very foggy and spitting rain, we both has a good time. We rode for about an hour stopping several times to look at the different lakes.Several of them had ice houses for fishing. With the warmer temps, the ice has been getting thinner, so no one was driving on the lakes. It is supposed…

Sadly, my Ural is not among them this month. This is the first first Thursday I have not ridden to since I started coming several years ago. I hope to be fit enough to ride in a couple weeks.

    It was warm this past weekend, so I hauled my motorcycles out of the garage to start the winterizing ritual. I normally wait until well after Thanksgiving, but it has already been in the single digits multiple times this year. I don’t think I’ll get anymore two-wheeled riding in for a while. The warm weather created a lot of cool fog. My process is pretty simple. I fill up the gas tanks and then put in some marine-grade fuel stabilizer. I like the sta-bil brand. I let the motorcycles run for a while to get the stabilizer into the carbs and fuel injectors on the different bikes. While they…

    After just having the pleasure of pretending to own an R Nine T for the past few days (keep an eye out for my review in issue 6 of Tank Moto magazine) I've become rather fond of BMW's 110hp boxer. Those Germans certainly know how to engineer a great bike and while I will also admit I'm quite fond of it's stock appearance, it's always great to see how custom workshops approach these retro classic, "ready to customise" rides. To give the R9T a popularity boost in the Netherlands BMW's marketing team came up with the "Soul Fuel Challenge". The aim of…

    Suzuki's GSX-R has been tearing up race tracks and suburban streets since the mid-eighties. It was the first motorcycle to be considered a "racebike that could be ridden on the road" and was the first bike to use an aluminium box frame construction. It was a reliable, fast and light weight option compared to the bikes being produced by the other big Japanese motorcycle manufacturers and the GSX-R badge is still available in Suzuki's 2014 lineup almost 30 years on. With the current trend in custom motorcycling I like to call the "retro renaissance" motorcycles like…

While on paper it sounds like a milestone in motorcycle production history the CX is often looked upon to with conflicting opinions. On one side there's the guys who knew the CX by it's not so affectionate nickname of "plastic maggot" and by a rather unpleasant period when they suffered cam chain problems that lead…

But for some reason I never have much luck finding the perfect riding glove.I think that may have changed - but the news isn't all good.I have been reading about the advantages of deer skin gloves versus cowhide gloves. Turns out that the deerskin is better.
