maintenance

Only 18 Days Til Christmas

Everyone should have at least a small toolkit to maintain her motorcycle. These small toolpacks have just the essential tools to do simple adjustments like tighten loose mirror bolts or adjust levers. 

You don't need a huge professional toolkit, just a few basics in case you need it. This RTM3 Roadtech Metric Tool Kit by CruzTools ($89.95) works for all Metric motorcycles. What does that mean? Basically anything Japanese and older British bikes like my Triumph. (After mine, they changed some of the bolts to Torx style) Or, if you have a Harley enthusiast in your life, they make a Harley specific kit too

Also, if you're in Chicago, Silicon Valley, San Francisco or Philadelphia pair it with a Gift Certificate from one of the MotoGuilds and you have a killer Christmas gift :) 

Come back tomorrow for Day 17!

Resources for Philadelphia Area Motorcyclists

Often times I'm asked about riding resources in the Philly area. Everything from rider training to social riding events, so I put together this little page to help my fellow riders out.  If you live in the Philadelphia area, you might be trying to figure out where to ride. Or maybe you're wondering where to meet other folks who ride. Or maybe you're wondering where can I get properly fitted for a helmet?!

I'm going to try and collect as much information as possible and put it here, so please add a comment if you have suggestions. I can't promise everything will be posted but I'll certainly add stuff if I think it's useful, appropriate and content friendly.

Thanks!

 

Interview with CoFounder of Moto Shop, a Different Kind of Motorcycle Garage

MotoShop-Logo I've always been a fan of Moto Shop, and before I moved here, I visited often so I could work on my bike and see my friends! If you have no idea what I'm talking about, then you need to listen to my interview here:
