We’ve all been there—having to take off your riding gloves when you want to text someone on your touchscreen smartphone or check something on your tablet (not while driving of course). It’s a hassle, no doubt about it. What’s worse are the gloves that are touchscreen friendly—are not very functional or stylish. Well, that’s exactly what the folks at AnyGlove thought and they figured it was time someone came up with a solution. The result?

Spring is finally upon us. All over the country, riders are taking the covers off their bikes and tuning them up—it’s riding season again. But with the departure of winter weather comes those infamous April showers—and while, yes, they bring May flowers—they also bring a deluge of disappointment, as anxious riders must wait out the storms before hitting the open road. But Spring showers don’t have to dampen your ride! That’s what rain gear is for. And even if the rain brings cooler temperatures along, you can turn to your trusty heated gear to keep you warm on the roads.

Know Before You Ride
If you are going to be traveling through numerous states this year on your way to the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally or another type of fun summer excursion, it is important to know what the motorcycle helmet laws are in all of the states you will be riding through. If a state requires motorcyclists to wear a helmet, then it is important to abide by those laws.
When planning your trip to this year’s Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, one of the most important tools any rider can carry with him or her is their BAM card. BAM is free breakdown and legal assistance for motorcyclists nationwide. Inspired by motorcycle lawyer Russ Brown, in the early 1980’s Russ found himself broke down at the side of the road in a remote area, and while waiting for help to arrive he came up with the idea of a service that was volunteer supported and could help a fellow motorcyclist with emergency breakdown and legal advice.
