Road testing a Klim Traverse!

Here at Gateway BMW riding season is in full swing, and we all know what that means…Time to road-test some gear! Unfortunately, one of our crew recently departed from his motorcycle traveling at a good clip wearing a Klim Traverse, and was left with a jacket with what could be termed “aggressive venting”. The estimated road impact speed was “around 80”. The Cordura of the jacket held up remarkably well to the abrasion of I-270’s surface.

The GS Challenge by Ron Petruska

Motorcycles have been a part of my life for nearly 40 years, starting back in high school and college. Years ago, I sold my motorcycles to finance my honeymoon. Then came kids and all the activities that go with them. By 2010, I was ready for another bike. After a 3-year, 30,000 mile stint on a Harley, I landed on a BMW. On vacation in Munich, my wife and I visited BMW World and saw a K1600 on display. That bike looked so cool! I bought one when we got home, rode it around Lake Michigan and then started thinking FULL STORY
