  • Packtalk Edgephones Enable Seamless Off Road Communication For Riders, Drivers and Spotters

    It's honestly been a while since I've had some time to get dusty on the trails but I'm hoping to break that streak soon now that things are getting more stable and the weather is starting to cool off again. Plus, now that I'll be in Michigan - I have a whole bunch of new trails to explore. One thing though that remains the same, whether I'm cruising through sandy washes in 120 degree heat or ice crusted forest trails in Michigan - being able to communicate with the other folks in your pack makes things more fun and far safer too. While mobile phones are good on highways, on the trails they don't always work and that's where Cardo Systems comes in with their Packtalk Edgephones ORV.

  • Polaris Unleashes the Rockford Fosgate Ranger Roof Audio System

    Rockford Fosgate has just introduced their new Ranger Roof Audio System, a trailblazing innovation in outdoor sound technology that will absolutely make you the loudest guy at the party. This audio system is specially engineered for Polaris Ranger off-road vehicles and features eight speakers, two subwoofers, and a remarkable 1,500 watts of sound.

  • King Of The Baggers Is Motorcycle Racing Like You've Never Seen Before

    Last month, I flew to Minnesota with Indian Motorcycle for my first King of the Baggers race at Brainerd Raceway, excited to learn what exactly bagger racing was all about. On the surface, the concept seems a little crazy, taking big, heavy motorcycles and racing them like they are sportsbikes. But after you see one whiz by you at 180mph and lean 50º into a turn, you start to look at it differently. And just like that, you're totally hooked.

  • Ultimate Motorcycle Comfort: Enhance Your Road Trip Riding Experience

    You're not alone in yearning for a smoother, comfier ride. Part of the joy of a motorcycle road trip is that unlike cruising down the highway with glass and steel wrapped around you, on a bike - you are exposed to the elements and connected to the environment that you are passing through. Unfortunately, that can sometimes be far less comfortable that the ride on a luxury SUV. Revamping your motorcycle to make the ride more enjoyable doesn't need to break the bank though. With a few tweaks, you'll be cruising in style and comfort.

  • Ways That You Can Make That Father Son Road Trip More Educational

    Road trips are a fabulous opportunity to bond as father and son but while educational opportunities will certainly appear spontaneously, most dads will want to stack the deck and make sure that their son can learn something while having fun on the road trip. That's why we've put this post together to help make your next road trip that much more fun and educational. Hang on... we're about to turn your holiday into a fantastic learning adventure!

  • The Ford F-150 Heritage Edition Is The Perfect "Throw Back" To The Future

    There's something special about Ford's F-150 pickup truck. While the big three play a game of one-upmanship every generation, for more than 75 years Ford has remained synonymous with trucks as a symbol of masculinity and the need to continue raising generations of hard working men. With the launch of the 2023 F-150 Heritage Edition, Ford presents a tribute to those generations of dads and grandfathers who have made the platform an American icon.

  • The Top Wakesurfing Boats For 2023

    If you're looking to up your wakesurfing game, it's time to ditch your traditional boat for a sleek, streamlined wakesurfing model. These specially designed boats create unbeatable swells that allow you to rip through the water on customized waves so you can get the most out of every moment. Experience the difference wakesurfing boats can make for you with the top models of 2023.

  • The 2023 Ford Maverick Hybrid Is The Perfect Truck For Guys That Aren't Really Truck Guys

    Simply put, I'm absolutely in love with the Ford Maverick and it is the first vehicle that has compelled me to put in a pre-order when they open later this week on July 17th. While many guys like big trucks because they ooze masculine power and brute strength, that isn't why I love trucks. My love of trucks is focused more on them being a tool for off-road prowess and exploring un-reachable places rather than the everyday experience of driving one. Regardless, there are times like picking up a grill, doing DIY projects, or going camping where a small utilitarian vehicle would be nice to have.

    That's exactly where the Maverick shines over it's brothers - Bronco Sport and Escape that share the same platform. This is the truck for non truck buyers and I'm hooked!

  • How to Buy The Right Boat For Your Lifestyle

    I'm going through the process of moving to a state with one of the highest per-capita boating populations in the country as well as thousands of miles of coastline along the great lakes and abundant amounts of smaller lakes that are fabulous for boating as well. Simply put, in addition to getting a truck... I'm saving up for a new boat too. Unfortunately, that's not as easy of a decision as you might think. For instance, in St Joseph where our new condo is - I can get a used pontoon boat and cruise the river and possibly the lake on a calm day but to go out and have fun fishing on Lake Michigan, I'd need a completely different type of vessel.

  • Eight Myths About EVs That People Assume Are True

    I love EVs. Electric vehicles are undoubtly the future and while there are some enormous obstacles that some say are unsurmountable, I am an optimist. Technology is advancing so fast that issues such as range anxiety and battery production will be resolved quickly. However, I'm also a realist and some issues such as needing more power generating ability to support the paradigm shift to an all-EV future will take longer. Regardless, while I try to be balanced in my views - many people only react to what they see from detractors who like to spread false and unflattering news about EVs. So, let's take a look at eight myths about EVs that too many people simply assume are true.

  • 2023 Ram Rebel 1500 Is A Great Road Trip Truck For Guys That Want To Look Tough

    It's hard not to say nice things about the 2023 Ram Rebel - it's got a perfect balance of good looks, technology, and specs that would make it an ideal option for any man looking for a beefy full-sized truck that is both comfortable to drive and capable. After a week driving it around Michigan, let's take a look at how it fits into our list of trucks and suv's we're considering as part of our truck buying journey.

  • RAM 2500 Rebel Is For Guys That Want To Haul And Look Cool Doing It

    Usually I'm pretty cool with any truck, car, or SUV that I get to review and as they say... there's an ass for every saddle. That's true for 2500 trucks too. They are designed to haul, they are work trucks, and there is a segment of guys who just simply want the biggest truck they can find to showcase their superiority over all other men on the highway. That's how I felt while driving the 2023 RAM 2500 Rebel around Toledo and North West Ohio for a week. While it checks all the boxes that an HD truck needs to have... the personality was just a complete miss-match for me and my wife's style.

  • CAM Mobility: Land Rovers In Moab At The Ultimate Off Road Driving Driving School

    I've been fortunate to embark on countless adventures, conquering diverse terrains from driving a Baja Challenge car through Mexico to navigating an old Toyota across Java. I even joined forces with the BMW GS Trophy team for some exhilarating off-road experiences on two wheels. But let me tell you, my recent three-day escapade in Moab with the CAM Mobility crew left me awe-struck and taught me more than I ever imagined.

  • Here’s Why Every Man Deserves A Harley Davidson In Their Garage

    If the thought of buying a motorcycle has ever crossed your mind, a Harley Davidson will have been on your shortlist. Quite frankly, a Harley hog is something every petrolhead should own at some stage. Many dream purchases in life turn out to be nothing short of a nightmare. However, a Harley Davidson will live up to your expectations and put you on the road to happiness. Here are just six reasons why!

  • My Truck Buying Journey Starts Now!

    I'm trying something new this year and already it has shifted my perspective on trucks and SUVs that I am reviewing here. While we've historically fallen into the trap of simply promoting the latest and greatest trucks and basking in the joy that comes with getting a brand-new truck several times a month. What's changed now is that we're moving to Michigan and need a beefy vehicle that is capable in bad weather, gets good gas mileage and is comfortable for road trips, and ideally can tow a boat in and out of the water. After all, this is Michigan and along with having a gun, the state requires that you either have a buddy with a boat or you have one yourself. As a result, I'm going to be looking at these trucks with a different perspective in mind... someone who is actually looking to BUY a truck. Not simply someone interested in the latest and greatest shiny stuff on the market.

  • 2023 Grand Cherokee 4xe Shows Just How Far Jeep Has Come

    Jeep has been a brand more closely associated with capability than luxury for most of its life but after spending a week driving the 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe, it is clear that luxury is just as important as off-road capability under the new strategy lead by Stelantis. 

  • What I Learned About EV Trucks While Driving To Vegas in The F-150 Lightning

    Let's just get this out of the way - over the past year I've driven a dozen or so EVs ranging from compact cars to 10,000+ trucks. I remain as optimistic as ever in terms of the fact that electric vehicles have the potential to be a superior alternative to the classic internal combustion petrol and diesel-powered options that dominate the market today. As part of this though, I also refuse to sit back and simply select facts to promote the benefits. Quite frankly, while EVs are a fabulous option for homeowners with moderate commutes - long road trips are not the best measure of an EV's value. With that being said though, I like to push the limits. I want to see what it looks like doing something that will be normal in five years. That's why Heather and I decided to drive a 2023 F-150 Lightning from San Diego to Vegas. Here's what we learned from the experience.

  • The 2023 GMC Hummer Is The Master Of Maneuverability And More!

    Have you ever driven a big truck through a city? If so, then you know the pain and fear that I had a few weeks ago when I got off the plane in San Francisco and was told that the beginning of our test drive of the all-new 2023 Hummer SUV would be a jaunt through tight urban roads and through traffic across the Golden Gate bridge. Shockingly though, the experience was far easier and more manageable that I had expected and thankfully I managed to avoid scratching this beautiful $100,000 behemoth as we rolled north to our hotel in Napa.

  • Wakesurfing In Miami With MasterCraft Was An Absolute Blast!

    There's no doubt about it, I'm a total adrenaline junkie, always looking to try something new and exciting, no matter how crazy and/or dangerous it might be. Skydiving, bungee jumping, ice climbing, extreme zip lining, trapezing, and more. You name it, I've probably done it. But one thing I've never done before is wakesurfing.

  • What Men Need To Know About The History Of Mercedes AMG Division

    From its humble beginnings in the late 20th century, Mercedes AMG has become a symbol of luxury and engineering excellence. It is no wonder that this iconic marque has been featured in so many films throughout the years. While most automakers have a similar "performance division", with AMG, they aren't messing around. These vehicles are truly a transformation of luxury engineering into a machine designed for thrills and performance instead of simply comfortable driving. This article will explore what men need to know about the history of Mercedes AMG Division, from its earliest days to its current status as one of the most desirable badges to be found on any vehicle on Earth.
