TomTom RIDER 400: Unboxing and first look

IMG_5604I did it! After having procrastinated  for a week – I’m on vacation after all – I finally pulled through and did an unboxing video of the TomTom RIDER 400 Navigation (GPS). Or an attempt at least. Editing in iMovie isn’t exactly the most exact science. But here it is, I hope you enjoy it.  Fortsätt läsa TomTom RIDER 400: Unboxing and first look

Sneak peak: TomTom RIDER 400

IMG5813The things I do for you, readers all over the world. The kind people at TomTom Sweden, and the even kinder people at their PR-agency (Cloudberry, thank you!) sent me this to review over the summer. Tomorrow I’ll try to edit an unboxing video which will be followed by a First Look and, later on, an in-depth review. Does that sound all right to you…? Fortsätt läsa Sneak peak: TomTom RIDER 400

Another test coming up

19228_10152917210493037_3030931799266313770_nThinking of which GPS to get for your bike? So do many people and let me tell you, it’s a jungle out there. For the last couple of weeks, we’ve been using my friend’s Garmin Montana, supposedly the best GPS for the offroad adventurer there is. I can’t speak for it’s efficiency in that sense but for the onroad adventurer it does have its flaws. Like finding places for example. For that reason, I’ve decided to test another competitor… Fortsätt läsa Another test coming up

Lindstrands Lizard, Berglund limited edition: First look

11402999_10153034536650922_3765784577274544415_nWhat a day! First it was “take your bike to work”-day, or at least I rode the bike to work. Great opening. In the evening I did some shopping and got my hands on some Lindstrands gear, more specifically the enduro pants Lindstrand Lizard, Berglund limited edition, and the gloves Lindstrands Flex. I was going for the Comet gloves but opted for the somewhat more expensive Flex due to their palm sliders given the recent turn of events (my hands still hurt from the accident).  After that it was time for some riding and trying out the gear… Fortsätt läsa Lindstrands Lizard, Berglund limited edition: First look

First look: TomTom Bandit Action Cam

TomTom3The relatively new product category of action cameras have opened a whole new world for the avid motorcyclist. They bring an easy way of showing the world the incredible feeling of riding and can record evidence of the systematic violence being brought upon us by cagers all around the world. Long has this segment been dominated by GoPro, but TomTom wants in and has developed the Bandit action cam. These are my first impressions… Fortsätt läsa First look: TomTom Bandit Action Cam

KTM 690 Enduro -08: First look

IMG_5526-1Yesterday afternoon I got the chance to try out my KTM 690 Enduro for real. I have ridden it a few times, but only in the city for short periods of time. Although by the time I was done with some unexpected chores the beautiful weather was replaced with dark clouds and temperatures around 8-10 degrees Celsius (resulting in me having a man cold from hell today), I still managed to get 150 kilometers out of her and these are my impressions… Fortsätt läsa KTM 690 Enduro -08: First look

First look: John Doe Kevlar Jeans

IMG4963While my engine disassembly and, later on, assembly, is going slow, like really slow, I’ve spent a few days at a motorcycle expo in Stockholm although I worked in a different section not connected to motorcycles at all. Not only did I see a lot of new bikes but I also did what I promised myself a long time ago: I bought a pair of kevlar jeans. Fortsätt läsa First look: John Doe Kevlar Jeans
