And we have a favourite model for every climate, function, style and safety level. Here are our staff picks for this season's motorcycle jackets.

Best Motorcycle Boots of 2017

This is our A-list of riding footwear. Motorcycle boots are a crucial piece of equipment. You brake and shift with your feet on the majority of bikes.

The trick is keeping them comfortable, dry, ventilated, warm and protected on the job. That’s where the perfect motorcycle boot comes in. In our opinion, these are the best choices for this riding season.

Motorcycle Suspension Guide

Smooth out those wrinkles in the road! The nice people at Harley, Kawasaki and Triumph have spent countless hours and lots of cash ensuring their motorcycles possess beautifully balanced suspension systems. That said, motorcycle manufacturers are in the business to make money, so it’s unlikely that your stock bike is gonna come with every state-of-the-art piece of tech and high-end equipment that’s out there. And that’s great news for us, because it means there's lots of room to play around with improving our bikes! But be warned: a motorcycle’s suspension is the beating heart of safety and stability. Make sure you do your homework on this one. Your ass is quite literally on the line.

Motorcycle Boot Guide

Want to start your search on the right foot? We've seen riders in everything from high heels to moccasins. Performance motorcycle footwear, this is not. But pointing out the bad choices is easy! We’re here to learn how to make a good one. Once upon a time, finding motorcycle boots required accurate foot measurements and a healthy cow. To be honest, that's hard to mess up. But today’s cornucopia of high-tech designs makes the issue more complex. Specialized riding footwear is better than ever before. But it's also harder than ever to choose wisely. We've broken our lesson into bite-sized pieces. Chew on them for a while and you’ll be ready to make an expert decision!

Motorcycle Luggage Guide

Get the perfect gear, and get packing. Motorcycles are certainly rubbish when it comes to cargo space. On stock bikes, the vast majority of riders will be limited to what they can stuff in their pockets. And whether you’re packing camping gear to South America or bringing a pencil case to the office, a few jacket pouches aren't going to cut it. So if you want to travel with something sizable, then you need motorcycle luggage. But choosing the best luggage for you is more difficult. This guide has everything you need to make an expert decision.

Motorcycle Jacket and Pant Guide

Here's the low-down on suiting up. Squids aside, a motorcycle jacket and pant will be part of your essential equipment. As in, when the sun is blisteringly hot and spontaneous combustion finally makes sense to you, you’ll don purpose-built motorcycle clothing nonetheless. We salute that. This guide is for people like you - people who resolve to dress for the ride, as well as the crash. You know that riding safe starts with dressing safe. And as always, we don’t want to bore you with a lengthy discussion of stretch fabrics and polymer plastics (which are awesome, by the way). Use the side menu to skip ahead to whichever bits are important to you.

Motorcycle Exhaust Guide

These are the ins and outs of your pipes. Replacing a stock exhaust will be many riders' first – and only – foray into motorcycle mods. But why are aftermarket exhausts so popular? And what makes a $300 tin can better than something Ducati cooked up? There are good answers to these questions. And you can find them here.

Motorcycle Winter Storage Guide

Sleep well, my precious. Fall signals the end of another awesome riding season and, if you’re a fair-weather rider, thoughts turn to winter storage. The subject of motorcycle storage is a bit contentious. Almost every rider has an opinion on the "right" way to put a bike away. We researched the subject for a few days, then compiled the most relevant information here.

Motorcycle Chain Guide

Find your weakest link here. If you’re new to motorcycles that are driven by a chain, that sticky mass of links, rollers, pins and rivets may look pretty daunting. But in reality, getting to grips with your chain - and learning how to do the required maintenance - isn't hard. And even when your chain finally gives up the ghost, replacing it with a brand spanking new one is a job that the home mechanic can easily undertake. A couple hours, some basic tools and this handy guide is all you need!

Motorcycle Oil Guide

Oil is black gold to a motorcyclist. It does a seriously tough job: hot as hell in a cramped environment, high pressure, dirty and - when it's all burnt out - we just flush it away. Refer to our comprehensive guide for everything you need to know about oil. Topics covered here include how to choose your engine's best friend, when to change it and how to understand those pesky numbers.

Motorcycle Windshield Guide

Not every motorcycle comes with a windshield, but just about every motorcycle rider has wished for a windshield at some point. A drop of rain to the eye, an extra-cold blast of wind or a bug-splattered tooth can bring about such feelings. A windshield might not be the prettiest addition to your motorcycle, but there’s no denying that it can help you stay in the saddle longer. Plus you'll have the stamina to ride further on each trip, and keep rolling all the way into winter's icy grip. Let's go from A to Z on purchasing a windshield for your ride.

Motorcycle Helmet Guide

Here's a brainy discussion on protecting your head. The most important piece of safety equipment for a motorcyclist is their brain. The second most important piece - their helmet. Of course, lids are more than protective. They're comfortable, tactical, stylish, technologically advanced and - like it or not - legally required. There's so much to know about motorcycle helmets; we could go on for days. The scope of this guide, however, is seven short sections. In them you'll find everything that we consider to be "essential knowledge."

Heated Gear Guide

Let’s face it, if you’re waiting for the perfect day to ride in Canada – not too wet, hot, cold or windy - you might be waiting a while. But with the right gear, you can take matters into your own hands. Electronically-heated equipment is a great way to regulate your body temperature.

Motorcycle Tire Guide

Here's some wisdom for choosing new treads. Thousands of engineering hours and hundreds of horsepower count for nothing unless you can put them to the ground. And since motorcycles have half the tires that cars have, we should be twice as conscientious about choosing the right ones. With this guide, making a wise decision is going to be easy. Even before we begin, you could read the recommendation in your owner's manual and find a tire with matching codes. But isn't it better to understand what those codes actually mean? And to anticipate how they will translate into an epic ride? That's the goal of this guide.

Motorcycle Communication System Guide

Wanna chat? First we're going to need a comm system. For all of their monumental benefits, communication systems are hard to get into. They can be utterly confusing when it comes to what they do, what they’re compatible with, and which helmets can use them. To top it all off, communication companies seem to choose their product names randomly from a bingo bag: SMH-10, MCS2, G9X, etc. We’re here to help with the confusion. Read through this whole guide, or use the menu below to skip the parts that bore you. This is motorcycle school after all – not real school!
