5 Cheap Motorcycle Upgrades

Got big aspirations for your bike but a small wallet?

Making your bike look better doesn’t have to cost a ton of money. Some upgrades are obvious while others you may have never considered before.

Here are five good tweaks that aren’t wallet-busters…plus a free bonus freebie.*

1.  Custom dust caps – Custom metal dust caps they draw the eye. It’s a little upgrade but other bikers will always notice this personal touch. Kids have been known to steal them so think about getting some that can be tightened using a tool. Here are ones we give away…

2. Leavers – The standard bike leavers you get on a bike can be big clunky things. Consider getting some custom ones like these they aren’t as expensive as you might think and are very simple to change. Check out our video of how we upgraded ours.

3. Led Indicators – Indicators are one of the easiest upgrades to make your bike look superior without breaking the bank. The choices are endless chrome indicators for custom bikes through to low-profile flush-mounted indicators. Sportsbike is the place to go for these.bike-it_indicators_arrow

4. Tank pads – When you jacket and zip comes into contact with your fuel tank on a regular basis it increases the risk of damaging your bike’s exposed paint work. Motorcycle tank pads offer the very best protection as well of a custom touch. Demon-Tweeks is the place to go for these.

5.Rim Tape – This is a personal choice but rim tape can add that extra crisp look to a wheel. Choose a complementary colour to your bike and you hit the nail on the head. We would recommend checking out bikermart for these  reflective-wheel-stripes-l

Monument Valley (Epic Motorbike Loop!)

Nature Frames

July 5, 2017

Merrick Butte glows in the final light of day in Monument Valley, Utah.

I spent the last eight days on an epic motorbike loop (3035 miles) through Kansas, Colorado, Arizona, Utah, and New Mexico. Along the way to my ultimate destination, Monument Valley, I visited my friends Alan and Carol Bell at their cabin in the mountains of Dillon, Colorado, navigated the mountain passes from Dillon to Durango, immersed myself in culture at Mesa Verde National Park, and experienced New Mexico’s scenic Highway 64 across the entire northern half of the state. It was such a fantastic trip, I really don’t know where to start, so I suppose a few images from Monument Valley itself would be appropriate for this first post about my adventure.

I’ve always wanted to visit Monument Valley, even before I knew where it was. I had seen so many movies featuring the…

Lucy Williams Global

Add heading

Packing for a two-week vacation on a motorbike is a nightmare! When my husband said we will take the motorbike to Sardinia, I was like great! NOT!

Anyway, that is what happened so I packed our tiny three bags that fit into the Ducati boxes. Now those three bags also included my husband’s stuff too! So really, I only had one and a half bags.

Tools you Need:

Motorbike Madonna

writing in north norfolk

She was a leather-clad,
two-wheeled speed-freak,
with a mouth full of swear words and dust,
and a body full of tattoos, bruises and scars.
She wasn’t one for trucks and cars,
or men with smoothed-back hair;
she preferred the scent of two-stroke
and dirt-ingrained fingernails on a bloke,
and the glittering chrome of a motorbike,
the bigger the engine, the better she’d like
to straddle its throb, grip it tightly with her knees,
stroke and twist the throttle, and inhale the speed.

Kim M. Russell, 2017

She would like us to focus specifically on how we get to know a character: through the narrator directly stating information about the character, through their own words and actions, and through the way other characters react to and…

Budget MultiTool for Bikers – Rolson

You ride a motorcycle; you’re going to need some tools!

Ideally compact so you can fit it under your seat. A multi-tool can add huge versatility to your tool kit, packing many capabilities into a single, handy package.

Here is one we got sent to review.

Is it the best budget multi-tools on the market for motorcyclists?

Bike_MultiTool

It comes packed as a cycle tool kit so we didn’t expect it to perform well.

We were reassured it is truly versatile and can cope with the demands of motorcycles.

Lets find out!

We gave the 10mm a test the handle gave way as we tired to loosen a bolt. It was a shame but it was a budget option and we returned this back to the manufacture it defiantly didn’t cope well. We are not even sure it would have much purpose for a push-bike.

One thing for sure we wouldn’t rely on this in a time of need.

Don’t worry we have some other brands in the pipeline and we endeavor to find that quality multi-tool that we can prove will stand the test the basic tasks.
