Wing-Tips for Your Ride: Renegade Racing’s Phantom Cut Wheels

I once had a woman tell me that the first thing she looks at when assessing a man is his shoes.  I’m sure I was wearing ratty sneakers at the time, which is probably why I never saw her again.  So what’s my point?  I’ve been to a lot of custom bike shows and I think that woman had a point.  Just like a man’s shoes, wheels can make or break the overall presentation of a bike.

Renegade Racing has a line of “Phantom Cut” wheels that will place your custom on solid footing.  The three Phantom models are the Cabo, the Racine, and the Lorado.  I have to say the subtle, almost sinister appearance of each is really stunning.

These wheels range in price from about $800 to $2500 depending size.  Speaking of size, each line is available spanning from 16” to a towering 26”.  The most massive rear width is an amazing 14”. 

Just like with my shoes, I probably think less about wheels than I should.  However, if you are looking to give your ride a striking accent, the new Phantom Cut lineup from Renegade Racing is sure to impress.

Do you suffer from headshake?  No, not the kind you get when your spouse tells you the in-laws are coming for an extended stay.  I’m talking about the headshake that some motorcycles are prone to.  I have had two bikes that, for some geometrical or mechanical reason, would display steering headshake at certain speeds.  One was a super-motard, and the other was a late 90s sport-bike.  In both cases, the headshake was significant enough that it was a safety concern.

Motion Pro Oil Filter Magnets: An Attractive Idea

Okay, so I went for the easy joke in the title of this review, but it’s true.  Your motorcycle’s engine is an amalgamation of different types of metal components.  In theory, the oil cushion keeps those metals separated from each other.   While, modern oils are a marvel, tiny shards and chips of metal are inevitably going to occur in a hard-working engine.  When that happens, that same oil that was designed to protect an engine is the thing that carries those bits to places where they can do the most damage.

That’s where the innovative little item from Motion Pro comes in.  Motion Pro Oil Filter Magnets are a simple, yet effective form of engine insurance.  Since many of the tiny flecks of metal are too small to be contained by the engine’s filter, you need another solution.  Motion Pro’s magnets are 6-pole circular neodymium magnets that mount around the base of your oil filter.  All of the oil entering your oil filter pass around the powerful magnet.  The magnet attracts and contains these metal bits for removal at the next oil change. 

The Motion Pro Oil Filter Magnets can be used up to 5 times when wiped clean at regular oil change intervals.  This innovative product retails for about $12.

Engine guards and highway pegs are common accessories on all sorts of cruisers.  I recently came across an accessory that combines the two in a unique package.  The Kuryakyn Ergo Engine Guards incorporate a patented flip-out highway peg that looks slick in both the inboard and outboard position.  In the extended position, the pegs feature an ergonomic pull back to relieve that uncomfortable outward pressure on the feet and legs.  In the folded position, the package looks clean and uncluttered.  In both positions, a stable foot tread is featured.

The Ergo Plus Engine Guard bolts directly to existing mounts on your frame, thus they do not use any unsightly universal clamps.  Needless to say they are not a universal fitment.  They are offered in configurations for both American and metric cruisers.
