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.

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!
