CTEK MUS 4.3 “Test & Charge” Battery Maintenance System

There’s a dirty little secret in the automotive world that OEM’s are reticent to discuss openly, but they’re doing their damnedest to resolve behind the scenes. The problem, for lack of a better term, is battery abuse. Modern technologies like Start/Stop — where the vehicle’s engine shuts down at red lights, gridlock, etc — are smartly employed to boost fuel efficiency. This has a positive effect not only on the environment, but also on automakers aiming to hit crucial mpg milestones mandated by federal legislation such as CAFE standards. But there’s a catch. Starting your car over and over again at FULL STORY

Product Spotlight: BMW Rider Pants

Finding a pair of riding pants that feels comfortable has always been a unicorn hunt for me. I’ve got a 31” inseam, so I need something with legs long enough that they don’t ride up over my boots when I’m seated. I’m also picky about materials: I’ll flat out refuse to ride if they don’t breathe and move when I ride. As an “All the Gear, All the Time” (ATGATT) rider, jeans aren’t an option for me. And if you’re wise, they’re not an option for you either. I recently found the best pair of riding pants I’ve ever owned, FULL STORY

Product Spotlight: Helite Vest

A year ago at the BMW MOA Rally, my wife and I each bought an airbag vest. I thought they were expensive, but my wife thought they looked like the best invention since sliced bread! And, you wonder if you would ever know if it really works! After all, since the ’80s we have ridden thousands and thousands of miles with nary an incident. Accepting the fact that I am aging (75 this year), I traded my BMW for a Can Am last fall. The stability was great, and how can you argue with a reverse gear! I am an FULL STORY
