    Tire Review

    About 300 miles ago I put a set of Metzler Roadtech 01's on my bike and they are all they claim to be. No more rolling burnouts they've become instant wheelies. They feel like rails around corners especially long sweepers. I've only had one opportunity to ride them on wet roads. They did...

    Omni-Cruise throttle lock review.

    I like the Throttlemeister bar ends but the obvious disadvantage is not being able to move it from one bike to another, and honestly cost. The Breakaway, also pretty sweet looking but there is no chance of me paying $150+ for a throttle locking device. Not happening. I landed on a Go Cruise 2...

    Joe Rocket Balistic 7 Pants Review

    I bought these for winter riding after buying and returning Gerbing EX Heated Pants due to massive sizing problems admitted by the vendor. I ordered them in 5x even though I wear a size 46 waist. I wanted them way too big so I would not have to use the side zippers at all...and I very much did...

    Gen 2 Review Video

    This is my favorite Gen 2 review to date. An honest first impression of a guy on a demo ride. I love the way he says "Holy Shit" almost every time he cracks the throttle. :biglaugh:........and his comment about someone thinking that a person riding one might murder them. :rofl_200: Very...

    Maxrelaxer product review

    I just finished a 2200 mile 7 day trip, and am extremely pleased with the Maxrelaxers I got from Rick. I used a set of Gen 1 rear footpegs on mine, so they fold up when not needed, and have the rubber on them for grip- I have to say, I love these things, and they made the trip much more...

    Shop recommendation for SE Texas (College Station/Houston)?

    Howdy! I've done a lot of work on my bike, but I'm tired of doing the big stuff myself. I need the 2nd gear replaced (the last owner apparently didn't clutch his shift) and some general tune-up to tighten up some mods. I live in Bryan, but I'm willing to go to Austin or Houston for a really...

    Review: Avon Venom AM41/42 tires

    First Impressions - 150 miles The main reason I chose the Avon Venom AM41/42 tires in 120/90-18 and 170/80-15 for the V-Max is being able to get them as a matched set in the sizes I desired. Finding some favorable comments towards these tires only further convinced me that I was making the...

    MaxxGasser seat review

    Just got back from a 1750 round trip to the "Tail of the Dragon"- I was fortunate to be able to use Rick's personal seat as a loaner for this ride, and have decided to keep it. It is without question, the best seat ive ever had on any motorcycle I've owned, and is extremely well done. I can't...

    Drag bars and Buell Pegs Review

    I just installed Drag bars and Buell pegs to my 97 VMAX AND all I can say is wow what a difference. The pegs took a little time to modify but well worth it. I am 6'4 and 225. I highly recommend them to anyone over 6' feet.

    Upon further review

    A few months ago I got a marks 4-1 for my 93. It has a 14" can, 2 1/4 outlet, no turn down. Got the exhaust on and "wow". You felt it as much as you heard it. Sounded fantastic at idle, up through the gears, but I found it was to loud at cruising speed (3000 to 4000 rpm), to the point of ear...

    Venture Differential Review & Thoughts

    I have been running a Venture differential now for a month or so and figured I should share my thoughts on it. First off, it was a pretty easy swap for a quick gearing change. It is not a huge difference, but I noticed it even in first gear which surprised me. I loaded up the bike and my wife to...

    http://www.cinemablend.com/new/Epic-70-Minute-Review-Of-Star-Wars-The-Phantom-Menace-16207.html This is long, about 70 minutes, but its freaking hilarious! The narrator makes some excellent points about how and why the movie was horrible.
