December 18th, 2010: Special thanks goes to our sponsor Alpinestars for outfitting us with these Supertech Touring Gore-Tex® Boots for the 2011 riding season.
I will be posting a full review after we've worn them a while, but I must say we were very impressed with these boots as soon as we opened the box. The attention to detail is remarkable, as is the fit and finish. When I put them on they were incredibly comfortable, and the amount of adjustability makes for a custom fit. We are looking forward to the 2011 riding season with these keeping our feet, safe, dry, and warm.

February 23th, 2011: Special thanks to GhostRider Customs for providing these Precision Cut Grills for our Harley-Davidson V-Rod camera bike. These grills are more than just great looking, they offer protection from road debris and rocks that could puncture this vital component to the V-Rod. I consider myself lucky so far because I've pulled out all sorts of insects, leaves, sticks, and countless rocks that could have damaged, or restricted the air flow to the rad. I should have had these on my bike years ago...
I will be posting pictures and a review once they have been installed. more info GHOSTRIDER CUSTOMS is Dedicated to bring you the State of the Art Custom Products for your Motorcycle!

March 9th, 2011: Special thanks to our sponsor Gerbing's Heated Clothing for sending a pair of their heated socks for this riding season.
Made from a perspiration-wicking 4-way stretch material, these socks are the ultimate in cold weather comfort for your feet.
First, they're extra tall, so they ride up over your calf. No matter how tall or short your boots are, these socks work. Second, the socks are cut specifically for left and right feet, so they fit you even more snugly to deliver extra heat, particularly to your toes. Finally, that heat comes from Gerbing's patented Microwire heating system, with wires so thin you won't feel them. And with heat delivered both above and below your feet, you'll be riding wrapped in soothing comfort.
Visit our Review page for more info & direct links to these socks.
Gerbing's Heated Clothing have been keeping us safe and warm since 2005, and our choice for heated motorcycle gear years before they were our sponsors.
March 11th, 2011: Special thanks to our newest sponsor Unlimited Engineering for providing us with their 5 gallon conversion kit for our V-Rod Camera bike. This tank holds an astonishing 53% more fuel than the stock tank! The majority of motorcycle riders are fortunate enough to have this type of fuel capacity already but for 2002-2006 Harley-Davidson owners we are not so lucky. The V-Rod's stock tank capacity is only 3.4 gallons with a max range of approximately 160 kilometers at 100kph.
I've ridden over 103,000 kilometers and have came so close to running out of gas on many occasions. This extra fuel capacity will now allow us to explore and film areas that were previously out of range.
It just arrived today but I can hardly wait till it's installed and I get to go for that first ride past many of the gas stations where I used to have to stop.
I will be posting images and a full review once it's installed, till then be sure to visit our Review page for more detailed info & direct links to this amazing 5 gallon kit for the V-Rod.
Visit Unlimited Engineering's website to see their full line of performance parts.
