The Perfect Vehicle: Women & Motorcycling

There are more women riding motorcycles now than ever before. We’re out there ripping it up at Bonneville, taking on roles as off road instructors, traveling around the world, and inspiring younger generations through our very presence. But what does it really mean to be a woman who rides?

Off-Road Mixology: Campsite Spritzers

Super-portable canned wine gets an off-road upgrade! Switch up your overland adventure happy hour with a summertime wine spritzer using simple ingredients.

All Motorcycles Are Adventure Motorcycles

If you ride a motorcycle, you definitely ride an adventure motorcycle. Eva Rupert explores motorcycle history and takes a long ride on her Honda Trail 90s to uncover the heart of adventure.

One-Tank Adventures: Roundtrip Journeys, Only Fill Up Once

One-Tank Adventures (OTAs, for short) are all about leaning into your immediate locale. Even when there isn’t a pandemic going on, OTAs are awesome. Explore the overlooked corners of your own backyard — there’s more there than you might realize.

KLR650, a Love Story

Everyone enjoys a good love story, especially when it involves Vegas, motorcycles, and the Overland Expo Moto Ambassador Eva Rupert. Eva tells a story of how she found love in the desert while riding her trusty, or not so trusty KLR 650.

In Defense of Motorcycle Shows

Kickstands & Kevlar Blog: “I’m not going to that event; I’m going riding… Why would you go hang around a convention center when you could spend a beautiful weekend riding with your friends.”  What was I thinking? Hanging around some event hall was bound to be a total waste of a glorious weekend. Had I made a mistake? And then I remembered, this is why we go to motorcycle shows.

Making Riding Gear for Women & Other Great Leaps of Faith

Kickstands & Kevlar Blog: In a time of lagging motorcycle industry growth, here come the women to save the day. We’ve increased in number by 50% in the last decade. We hold the keys to one in five of all motorbikes owned in America. Despite the rise in female ridership over the course of the last decade, the choices in high-performance gender-specific gear remain eerily static.
