New Year, New Gear: Rhino Hanger

Of all the motorcycle gear to get excited about, a clothes hanger is probably at the bottom of the list.  A new leather jacket or new track suit is exciting.  A new hanger?  Not so much.
General use hangers are not up to the task of bearing the weight of that new leather jacket and will absolutely buckle under the girth of a new track suit.  No one wants to find their precious and expensive gear lying in a heap on the floor (or worse, the ground) beneath a broken hanger, and few gear manufacturers include a hanger that’s up to the task.

Two Points Of Contact

Both motorcycling and skiing are about managing two finicky points of contact with bravery and skill. The rush of wind and speed is the same with both. Lean angle with either always equals risk, speed will always equal radius and more speed will always equal more brakes. The sublime joy of two points of contact means you have to lean, you have to carve, you have to trust your traction, and yes, you have to be just a bit crazy.

Christmas Thanksgiving

Almost a foot of snow fell yesterday around my Pacific Northwest home.  My motorcycles are all parked around the 1966 Ford Mustang convertible, hibernating, tethered to their battery tender umbilicals for the winter.  About a month ago was the last time any of their engines spun, Mustang included, replaced by the monotonous drone of a snowblower.  Staring at them makes me reflect on the things I am most thankful for from the riding year past.

Dunlop Roadsmart IV vs Pirelli Angel GT- 2022 Results

The only way to scientifically compare the mileage of one motorcycle tire versus another and finally put the mileage question to rest forever is to completely control for every single variable: bike, rider, terrain, weight, speed, inflation pressure, etc..which is impossible for an average rider.
Unless you work for Road Dirt Motorcycle Media.  Because we do those things.

Trying On A Motorcycle One-Piece Suit

A motorcycle race suit is a substantial investment from your wallet towards your well-being and proper fit is crucial to safety. Comfortable race suits are more likely to get worn, while poorly fitting suits tend to stay on the hanger. Fit and flexibility also make the difference between feeling fresh or quickly reaching fatigue. Fresh riders are fast riders, fatigued riders make mistakes. I know this all too well.

An Entertaining Misery

We never saw the storm coming, a Colorado squall that stalked us from behind, waiting to sucker punch us until we had our backs turned. A few hours before on this idyllic August day during the Colorado 500 we were enjoying perfect weather. Our fast group of five were Colorado 500 board member Hutch Collier, his wife Dawn, his son Currie, his riding companion Phil Weida and me, and we ripped through the narrow canyon lands leading to Gateway, smooth red rocks and polished boulders doing their best southern Utah impersonation. I couldn’t believe our luck to get these roads with such stunning scenery and perfect weather, one of those days on the motorcycle you wish you could bottle. We had no idea we were riding on borrowed time.

Sedici Corsa One Piece Race/Track Suit Review

Sedici’s Corsa is a one piece, track focused set of leathers with an attractive price tag.  Costs for one piece race suits can easily reach four figures, scaring away customers looking to head to the track or who want the full protection a one piece suit offers for any aggressive riding situation.  The Corsa addresses that problem with a $599.99 price tag and substantial protection and features, but that price comes with a disclaimer.  More on that later.
