We are Goodwill Ambassadors
If you are a motorcyclist, you understand. We know why we ride.
As a goodwill ambassador for motorcycling and the powesports industry, consider the brothers and sisters that we represent, and remember what our goal is when we engage with non-riders. I don’t need to be right about motorcycling. More importantly I don’t need to prove anything to motorists that don’t have an appreciation for two wheels on the open road.

Improved Visibility to Distracted Drivers
Motorcyclists have to accept responsibility for themselves when they ride. You have to watch out for every other vehicle and be prepared to take action to keep yourself alive. You have to be hyper vigilant about paying attention to what is going on around you at all times. Even when Continue reading “Improved Visibility to Distracted Drivers”
How To Choose a Motorcycle Helmet
Updated: October 1, 2019.
A motorcycle helmet is a very specialized piece of personal protection equipment. With each new riding season, helmet manufacturers release new helmets, built on decades of research and innovation.

I’m not going to drop a bunch of statistics to scare you into buying a helmet. You found this because you want to know how to pick the best motorcycle helmet for you. I have several years of experience working in motorcycle dealerships and ran a riding gear shop selling helmets.

Cycleman’s shop is awesome.
I’ve never seen so many motorcycle parts in one place. If you ride a street bike, Continue reading “Toledo Motorcycle Legend – Cycleman”

I was about four years old the first time I went out on the road with them. It was the late 1970’s. It was a practically brand new CB750.
I started riding in front of them holding Continue reading “The Motorcyclist That Motivates Me”
