With so much temperature difference over a day, it is important to check tire pressures at the beginning of the day when the tire is cool (before riding more than 2 miles).

Even though a two to eight percent tire pressure may not sound like much on paper, remember that manufacturers advise a specific pressure number in order to extract the maximum performance of the tire in every aspect, so it is crucial in real-life situations.

History of Motorcycle Culture

Ever wonder how the whole biker lifestyle got its start? Well, it began with servicemen returning from World War II who bonded together over the love of motorcycles. You see, by 1934 out of nearly 300 American motorcycle companies that were created from around 1900, only two remained in business, Harley-Davidson and Indian.
