The Complete Book of BMW Motorcycles (Ian Falloon)

If you are a fan of the marque, this might be a nice addition to your coffee table. Author Ian Falloon has authored countless guides to various motorcycle manufacturers and model specific compendiums. His work leaves no stones unturned and is melded together with top of the line photography.

This is actually the next addition. Previously published in 2015, BMW has brought to market several new models including the R1250 series, a scrambler and the 310 series. Out with the old and in with the new?

Frazier Shrugged (Greg Frazier)

For more than three decades Greg Frazier has been contributing tales culled from his six navigations around the world on two wheels. But with the recent victims of the digital publishing era, a number of his columns have been lost to the death of print. And we will no longer see new columns from him printed in the pages of Motorcycle Consumer News, City Bike, and others - because - they are gone.

As moto journalists age, books like this one are going to be few and far in between. Can you name a 40 y.o. moto journalist/humorist who has something in the works? Get one for you and one for a friend.

Motley Tube

Face masks have become essential for all humans and will be that way for a while longer. But for many motorcyclists they already had that base covered when they opened their drawer and pulled out their neck tube. As effective as a cloth face mask, neck tubes also offer protection around the neck, can be configured to be worn over the head and offer an added layer of insulation on top of the body.

If you have yet to experience a bee entering your jacket from the collar, we can tell you from experience it’s no fun. Ride safe and be safe.

Joe Rocket GPX Jacket

While we’ve never been impressed with the textile gear Joe Rocket cranks out, their leather gear has always had far superior construction. The new GPX jacket is black and comes in four trim options - grey, blue, red, yellow. The upper chest area is perforated for hot days, so you’ll need a little rain gear on wet days.

The Stealth Sport Pant is the only leather match in the lineup for the Jacket. Not sure why?

Barbusters AERO GP Lever Protector

Designed for street and track bikes to protect the brake and clutch levers from accidental contact while riding or racing.

Barkbusters will tell you straight out, these are NOT designed for impact protection. Thus, in the event of a crash you can expect the lever protector to break, and then perhaps the lever as well. We're not sure where your hand will fit into all this???

Socket Roll

Patented “locking” stitch mechanism keeps sockets secure Easy to read sizes for quick access. Wrench slots on the back for added fastener removal/install options. Convenient carrying handle and hook/loop strap handle. High quality, durable and fluid resistant material. Plastic backing for added form and durability.

We like it. Think of the times you've needed to access various sized sockets, but moving an entire tool box around is a total pain in the back. MSRP shown below is for the PRO model. See the website for more details.
