All Pages

In this issue of StarCruiser, we discover, through his own words, the late Mike Ibbotson, an avid motorcyclist who traveled the long road to redemption from a tragedy that stained his life. Ben Harper presents Part Five of his "Ride Safety" series. In this issue, he discusses the role of the "ride shepherd" in group riding. John Bolegoh, SmarTire’s Technical Services Manager with over 25 years of experience in the tire industry, writes about the importance of correct tire pressure on performance and safety. Yours truly reviews a new product from BikerBrackets.com, kick-out pegs that mount on the bottom of existing floorboards. Big Boo (Gary Van Buskirk) and Boo (Michelle Mack), veterans of the ISRA forum, review the problem with the V-Star 1100 starters. The article includes details and references that clarify the history of the problem. Finally, Brian Kim displays his ride. His hard work earned his V-Star 650 Star of the Month.
