Riders who attended the 75th Sturgis Rally were treated to the releases of many new bikes and aftermarket motorcycle parts from all of the top brands.  Among those releases was the all new lineup of Harley exhausts from MagnaFlow. Last year we saw MagnaFlow make waves in the motorcycle world when they partnered up with Arlen Ness to create a great looking line of exhausts.  Now, they are doing it again with their own line of aftermarket Harley exhausts.  The new lineup features full systems, slip-ons and headers.  Whatever option you choose is sure to make your Harley look, sound and perform better than ever. Take a look at the breakdowns for each one below to find a new MagnaFlow exhaust for your Harley. Rockstar At the apex […]

With vintage styling being the go-to lately, there has been a huge resurgence of classic, craftsman-style motorcycle gear.  What we’re getting is great looking gear with timeless design, yet with the new construction materials and techniques of the modern era.  It can be argued that we are getting the best of both worlds right now. Alpinestars has looked back into their own storied history for inspiration.  40 years ago, Alpinestars was recognized and awarded in a prestigious fashion competition for their innovative take on motocross boots.  To celebrate their award, Alpinestars created the Oscar line which was emblazoned with the now iconic Oscar spiral logo. A’Stars is once again setting the standard for functional and fashionable gear with their revival of the Oscar lineup.  With everything from jackets […]

There’s something that a lot of riders realize when they go to rallies like Sturgis and Daytona.  “It’s hot.  It’s packed.  And my bike is starting to overheat!” These hot summer months are not the friendliest to air-cooled V-Twin motorcycles.  Then add on slow moving rides and traffic jams and you have a recipe for disaster.  The heat is going to build fast if you’re unable to get on the open road.  And we all know that that can lead to serious engine damage and failure. If you ride in these stop-and-go conditions a lot, you may want to seriously consider adding an aftermarket solution to engine overheating.  Growing to be one of the most popular choices is the Love Jugs cooling systems.

Refinement.  Making incremental changes to something to improve on something that was already successful.  Also, to remove the unnecessary in order to make the object more pure.  See the new 2016 Speed and Strength lineup for a perfect example of what refinement in motorcycle apparel can be.  The SS gear just keeps getting better with every release and they are doing it by nailing what works and keeping the style minimalistic. Refined and minimalistic these new jackets may be, but they are definitely not lacking in functionality and comfort.  All of that is baked into the new releases with no detriment to the style. For style, Speed and Strength has nailed down the asymmetrical look.  They had amazing success with last year’s Top Dead Center and Throttle […]
