Nelson-Rigg bags have an unconditional guarantee and excellent customer support.
I've destroyed two sets of these bags, entirely my fault, and they were replaced without question. I recommend
this company without hesitation.

The continuing flip-open helmet saga. I continue to get a lot of requests for more information on this topic. I've expanded the information on flip-opens, including a review of information I got in a long conversation with the people at Snell.
Does ABS really work? It seems that for the majority of riders, especially in wet or
sandy conditions, ABS is a real benefit. It pains me to write this.
Updated tire recommendations for the ST1300. The BT020F (not the BT020U) is recommend as the
best all-around performer. Avoid the BT020U. The ME-Z6 has the best handling, but poor mileage. The ME-880 rear tire has the best
mileage, but so-so handling at insane speeds in the twisties.
Cool Vests. $30 - $200. The cheaper ones work better. Go figger.
The continuing flip-open helmet saga. I have received complaints from several
readers due to my recommendation that these helmets be avoided as unsafe. I looked into them further. At this time, no flip-open
helmet is Snell certified; indeed Snell says no flip-open helmet has been submitted to them for testing. I now believe this is
because the manufacturers know that the helmets will fail even the open-face Snell standards, due to insufficient protection in
the temple area. The manufacturers all have in-house testing facilities to do the DOT testing, so they know in advance.
I put a little logo up on your browser tabs and in your bookmarks, if you make a new
one. If your browser doesn't have tabs, well, all I can say is the rest of us are all in the 21st century.
