Best Motorcycle Chocking System: Beast Racks

Posted by Eric Lange on August 25, 2015

Versatile, secure, durable, and affordable…what more could we have asked for in a motorcycle transport and wheel chocking system?

I first saw the Beast Rack system at a motorcycle rally earlier this year, and immediately noticed the advantages it has over traditional floor-mounted wheel chocks. We went ahead and purchased a Beast Rack system right away, and have since spent the last few months traveling from one motorcycle rally to another, meeting our fellow riders out there in the world. After this extensive testing period, we have nothing but good things to say about this product.

KTM Clutch & Stator Cover by Trailjammer Designs

Posted by Eric Lange on May 28, 2015

While the 2014 KTM 690 Enduro R that I picked up recently was only slightly used, the previous owner reminded me in the form of liquid weld just what can happen if the engine isn't protected. As shown in the picture below, something clearly "got in there" and punctured the clutch cover, and while the liquid weld was holding up pretty well, it was also just leaking slightly enough that it was time to just replace the cover itself.

Motorcycle Parts Review: Lithium-Iron Battery Options for Your Bike

Posted by Eric Lange on March 18, 2015

Saving a little weight often seems like a lost cause on a 500+ pound "pig" like my BMW R1200GS Adventure, but then again, every little bit helps. Some significant weight was shaved with aftermarket exhaust last year and of course heading to the gym recently has helped as well, but these last 10 pounds lost from my adventure riding setup come thanks to Shorai Power!

Motorcycle Travel Tip: How to "Thump-start" Your Bike

Posted by Eric Lange on March 4, 2015

What should we call this technique, anyway? It's not jump-starting, as we never touched the battery, and it's not bump-starting, because neither bike wasn't actually rolling. Out of respect for the single cylinder 4-stroke thumper that started the bigger BMW, should we call it Thump-starting?
