Sealight sent me another headlight for the Sporty to review. To be honest, as much as I liked what they sent me before, I think I like this one even better. It’s a great upgrade to the look of the bike and…
I’ve been a fan of the notion of LED headlights for several years now. I think they make the bike more visible in traffic and certainly make it a lot easier to see at night, so when I had the opportunity to try out and review this LED headlight for the Sporty, I jumped at that chance.
Although I didn’t want a pair of saddlebags, I did need something for the stuff I like to carry along on most rides and found this single solo bag for the Sportster, it looked like it would do the trick.
It should come as no surprise that the stock suspension on the Sporty just wasn’t doing it for me. Since I had Progressive shocks on the Road King, I naturally turned to them for a replacement for the Sporty.
With temperatures around 60 degrees on the 17th of February, I didn't get around to working on the hot rod today, but wasted a couple of hours in the saddle instead. Here are two things that went along for the ride that I've really come to appreciate.
As a former professional photographer, I've used large format 4x5, medium format, 35mm, and professional digital cameras. None of them were the right camera for carrying on the bike, but this little camera is.
It doesn't really matter what you ride, there are times when something will go wrong and you'll need a tool to fix it. Here are the tools that have earned a place in my saddlebags just in case something goes wrong on the road.
On a tour the right luggage can really make a difference. I've been a big fan of T-Bags luggage for a long time, so when it came time to buy some luggage for Sue's bike, that's where I looked first and found a bag we really like.
A map might be old school, but these waterproof Butler Maps are about perfect for planning a motorcycle tour. I carry maps for Utah and the surrounding states in my saddle bags and have been a great tool for planning a tour.
Sue and I started using these a few years ago and the ability to talk to each other made touring a lot more fun for her. Because we didn't have a CB with an intercom, the Sena headsets worked great to allow us to chat as we went down the road. They are even more valuable to us now.
