Pepper-Spraying Texas Cop Update
Aug 24, 2016 - 1:42 PM - by Motorcycle.com


Quote:
A firestorm erupted last March when a video surfaced that showed a Texas police officer pepper spraying a group of motorcyclists riding past his patrol car. Motorcyclists who watched the video (now with more than three million views) were angered at the apparent assault on riders. The cop, William Figueroa, claimed he needed to spray the riders because they wouldn’t vacate the lane next to his patrol car that was pulled over at the side of the road.

Surely the overly aggressive cop would be severely reprimanded for his actions that could’ve hurt or even killed riders as they rode past, right? Well, thanks to our favorite moto-riding attorney, John Butrus, we were able to dig into the situation. Sadly, the outcome of the investigation seems to be far too lenient for an officer who demonstrated a complete lack of concern for the safety of our fellow riders.

Five Ways to Keep Your Motorcycle from Being Stolen
Aug 16, 2016 - 4:57 PM - by Motorcycle.com


Quote:
If you own a motorcycle, you are a target for motorcycle theft—and it doesn't matter how fancy or filthy it is. Obviously, big-buck cruisers like Harley-Davidsons and tricked-out $15,000 sportbikes are tasty treats for thieves, but vehicle theft is sometimes a crime of opportunity, so here's five ways to keep your bike safe, no matter what it is.

Motorcycle thieves, although usually not great at career planning, are very clever, practiced and good at what they do. That means they can work incredibly fast, defeating multiple security systems and locks in minutes or even seconds. Their strongest weapon is speed, so your best defense is to make it as complicated as possible to get your bike, so they'll look for an easier target.

Top 10 Best Things About Riding To Laguna Seca
Jul 20, 2016 - 12:58 PM - by Motorcycle.com


Quote:
This is merely my subjective list of 10 good things, but there are really no bad things about riding those few hundred miles from MO’s SoCal headquarters to the Monterey peninsula; blasting over a few mountain ranges, making time up the spine, toasting the coast. Mother Nature pulled out all the stops in the scenery department, the weather’s perfect, we wangled six great bikes (more on them next week). The fact that it’s a World Superbike and MotoAmerica race weekend is really just a bonus.

The Best Motorcycle Helmets
Jul 18, 2016 - 4:12 PM - by Motorcycle.com


Quote:
At Motorcycle.com we strive to research and test all of the latest bikes and gear. Over the past two decades, our experienced staff has developed a keen sense of quality and a critical eye for proper functionality. Because helmets are easily the most crucial safety item for any rider, we wouldn’t even consider riding without one, and since we spend so much time testing motorcycles all over the world we tend to spend a lot of time inside a lot of different helmets.

This experience has helped us understand what makes a truly great helmet. Although it may seem obvious to the most experienced riders out there, we also realize that picking the best helmets out of today’s large sea of choices may not be so easy for everyone else. It is for that very reason that we’ve prepared this guide to help you pick the best helmets for your riding lifestyle.

What Would You Have Done: Lane Merging Edition
Jul 07, 2016 - 12:00 PM - by Motorcycle.com


Quote:
As motorcyclists, we’re all too familiar with car drivers merging into our lanes, seemingly blind to the fact we’re occupying the lane they are trying to merge into. But what’s proper etiquette when a two-lane road turns into one? Which order should vehicles in a double-file line let each other into a single-file line? Whatever your answer, it’s probably not what this woman was thinking as she comes from behind this motorcyclist and co-occupies the lane he’s in. He then gets upset, honks the horn a few times, gives the driver a quick lesson in merging, calls her a choice expletive then rides on.

Normally that’s where a story like this would end. Instead, he spots a police officer up ahead, flags him down, and sticks him on the car driver.
