I second this. Buy a few different ones and see what is most comfortable for you. For me, earplugs were the best bang-for-the-buck comfort farkle I have ever purchased. I've done two Iron Butt...

I did this last summer. Probably stayed at 10 different Super 8s over the course of 3 weeks. We paid anything from $40-70 if my memory serves. All of the rooms were clean enough and we never...

I did a ~9k mile trip this summer and used the Tour Master Elite Series 2 1-piece rain suit. It looks dorky and is better suited for short fat guys, but I rode in several days of rain including a...

We made it, and right you were about the heat. My bike's thermometer read 110 as we rode into Las Vegas around 10pm. Chase (the guy on the Kingpin) had his clutch cable snap on him immediately...

Nice RR! I think we saw you guys in mid-July at a gas station/mcdonalds off of I-70 in Utah. We were on a V-strom and Victory Kingpin and were heading to Las Vegas that day. Looks like you guys...

This made me do a double-take to see which thread I was reading this morning. I'm following both of your RRs on Advrider and here they intersect. Good luck to all three of you!

I'm not sure how much better the Bestem is. TBH I never saw the JC Whitney one before, but I do like the extra visibility from the lights. I've also seen other posts on advrider and...

^this

Ultimately since whatever bike I get will be my only one, and will be my primary transport in the summer (my car is a 1999 Accord that is a black hole for joy when I get behind the wheel) I...

Hey Marius, I'm in the same boat as you. I have a 2013 wee on order (which seems to be taking WAY too long to get here, but maybe it's just because MI is starting to have some tolerable-temperatured...

So I drove the 2 hours last night to check this bike out. The pictures don't do justice to how nice this bike is. That being said, I checked the tank and it does appear to have expanded somewhat. ...

The title says it all. For the last year I've been researching, pondering, and weighing all sorts of new bikes. Several months ago I decided the new vstrom 650 was the bike for me, and I even put a...

I'm in the same boat as you, Mario. My needs focus a bit less on the off-road capabilities, though, so I settled on getting a vstrom 650. Any by "settled on getting a vstrom 650" I mean "that's...
