2019 Volvo XC40 T4 Review – The Crossover That Made Me Love Crossovers

I get it. No real enthusiast should like crossovers. They’re tall, handle poorly, slurp gas, and aren’t as space efficient as the cars upon which they’re based. They aren’t a true sport-utility vehicles, either, as their on road-focused designs can’t handle rough terrain. I used to be like you.

True Confessions of a Motorcycle Crash Test Dummy

To ATGATT or Not to ATGATT? Do you wear All The Gear All The Time (ATGATT)? As motorcyclists, we are all too familiar with the age-old battle between freedom of choice and personal responsibility. We’ve heard the arguments from both sides for decades. Choosing protection, whether it’s full head-to-toe or nothing at all, is 100% in the hands of each individual.

Alpinestars Core Leather Jacket Hands-On Review

A Pleasant Surprise I was very excited to test the Alpinestars Core leather jacket because it is offered in a perforated model which is perfect for the warmer climate of Phoenix. I have worn many textile and mesh jackets over the years and I like the comfort and fit but mentally I just don’t feel as protected as I do when I am wearing leather, so the Core is a great option. The jacket is offered in all black and a combo black and white in men’s sizes 46 to 60. It would be great to see Alpines...
