When you are looking for motorcycle boots that will protect your feet but still give off that cool vibe, look no further than the Black Brand Deceptor Boots (P/Ns BB9048 through BB9060). Comfortable enough for all-day walking and riding, the Deceptor looks like sneaker but gives you the protection of a traditional motorcycle boot.
The Deceptor is a motorcycle boot made to look like a sneaker–not a sneaker trying to be safe. With a reinforced shank, you could kick start a bike or do standing-on-the-footpeg stunting all day long. The toe box and ankles are reinforced, a Hipora® liner adds weather protection and D3O insoles let you be comfortable when you are walking around. Like the name says, they are deceptively strong and deceptively comfortable.
Available in men’s sizes 7 to 13, the Deceptor Boot retails for $139.00 and can be ordered through your local Tucker Rocky | Biker’s Choice dealer.

Fire & Ice Corbin Dual Touring Saddle for 2009 – 2017 H-D Touring Models
Another Corb-innovation! This newest version of our extremely popular Dual Touring saddle is the World’s first production Heated AND Cooled motorcycle saddle. That’s right, Corbin was first to bring the luxury of heated seating to your motorcycle and now we’ve created an option for relief of your burnin’ bum during the Summer months. Like all Corbin break through innovations, this system is designed for simple installation and is fully self contained in the saddle. Simplicity, Form and Function all wrapped up in one neat package.
Additionally features all the same benefits as our original Dual Tour saddle with generously sculpted seating panels for maximum support. This model is specially designed to fit the 2009 and up Electra-Glide, Road Glide and Street Glide models. The lower chassis used for Harley’s 2009 and up Baggers freed us up for a new level of ergonomically designed perfection. Wide, sculpted seating positions create a larger area of contact for excellent weight distribution. Shaped like your body to eliminate pressure points and give long lasting support that will keep you in the saddle all day.
About Fire & Ice: Ever hear of the Peltier Effect? If so, you’ve probably already figured out the basics of how the Corbin Fire & Ice system works. With just a couple of fans and some clever application we can include both heat and cool in the same saddle without pumps, compressors or fluids. It should be noted the cooling effect is affected by ambient temperature. In our samples the room temperature was 74 degrees and it took just a few minutes to cool the seating surfaces down to a chilly 63 degrees. In our continued tests, the system quickly cooled the surface 10-15 degrees below ambient temperature. On the heat side we thermostatically set it to top out at approximately 110 degrees.

New Harley-Davidson Street Rod Is Tuned For Dynamic Urban Performance
High-Output Revolution X Engine and Refined Chassis Deliver More Power and Nimble Handling
The new Harley-Davidson Street Rod motorcycle is a muscular middle-weight built to blitz the city streets. An addition to the Harley-Davidson Street model family, the Street Rod is agile, powerful and tuned for maneuvering through traffic and congestion. Steeped in tough Harley-Davidson Dark Custom styling, bearing a stance that’s poised and aggressive, the Street Rod always looks ready for action.
“The Street Rod will put the thrill in any urban commute,” said Mathew Weber, Harley-Davidson Chief Engineer for the Street Rod. “We’ve paired the potent new High Output Revolution X 750 engine with a revised chassis and up-rated suspension components to make the Street Rod quick, light-handling and easy to ride.”
The Street Rod backs up its performance with a liberal dose of Harley-Davidson Dark Custom styling.
“We made this new bike look tough and aggressive,” said Harley-Davidson Lead Designer Chetan Shedjale. “This aligns with the environment our riders will experience this motorcycle in. The inverted, black-anodized forks and triple clamps along with a new speed screen combine to add visual mass to the Street Rod front end. The increased ground clearance and new 17-inch wheels give the Street Rod an intimidating stance. Finally, a supercharger-inspired air intake and the deeper growl of the exhaust note draw attention to the High Output Revolution X engine.”
The High Output Revolution X 750 engine produces 18 percent more horsepower and 8 percent more torque than the standard Revolution X 750 engine (U.S. and Canada markets only). The new single overhead-cam V-Twin engine features a larger air box, a new dual-throat throttle body, revised four-valve cylinder heads and high-lift camshafts, and a higher-volume muffler. The compression ratio is bumped from 11.0:1 to 12.0:1, and the engine redline is increased from 8,000 to 9,000 rpm.
“We’ve improved air flow and then tuned this new engine to maximize mid-range torque,” said Weber. “It really delivers a punch between 3,000 and 5,000 rpm, power you can always feel and use in real-world riding situations. Liquid cooling helps maintain that performance and rider comfort in stop-and-go urban traffic.”
The new Street Rod chassis is engineered to match the performance of the High Output Revolution X engine. The front end features rigid 43mm inverted forks gripped by a lightweight aluminum triple clamp. Fork rake angle is tightened from 32 to 27 degrees to quicken the steering. Coil-over rear shock absorbers have an external reservoir to increase fluid capacity and improve control. The shocks increase the rear suspension travel by 31 percent, to 4.6 inches. A new swing arm is slightly longer to accommodate the taller ride height, and has new performance-inspired styling. Lean angle is increased from 28.5 degrees left and right to 37.3 degrees right and 40.2 degrees left. The Street Rod rolls on light-weight, 17-inch front and rear Split 7 Spoke Black Cast Wheels and new Michelin Scorcher 21 radial tires. Dual 300mm-diameter front disc brakes deliver confident stopping power. Anti-Lock Braking (ABS) and the Harley-Davidson Smart Security System are factory-installed options for the Street Rod.
“The Street Rod is the most nimble motorcycle in the current Harley-Davidson line-up,” said Weber. “Tires, wheels, suspension and frame geometry are engineered to work together and deliver handling that’s light and precise at all speeds.”
A new seat shape is designed to fit the rider’s contour, and seat height is raised by 3.7 inches, to 29.4 inches, to enhance the rider’s view forward over traffic. A flat, drag-style handlebar puts the rider in a fist-forward posture on the bike. The Street Rod also features new forged foot controls and aluminum foot pegs that are positioned for a comfortable seating position that also makes it easy for riders to get feet down to the ground at stops.
Street Rod styling highlights include a new color-matched speed screen, a short aggressive street fighter-inspired tail, and all-new LED tail lamp and turn signals with a Street Rod signature look.
The Street Rod will be offered in three color options: Vivid Black, Charcoal Denim, and Olive Gold.

Grassroots manpower is the most powerful tool in the motorcycle rights movement’s arsenal and motorcycle clubs are a critical component. This power was again demonstrated by the Idaho motorcycle club community and ABATE of Idaho beginning on February 21, 2017 when HO 123, a law prohibiting motorcycle profiling, passed out of the House Judiciary committee with a unanimous do-pass recommendation. On February 27th the entire Idaho House of Representatives voted 69-0-1 (one rep. was absent) in favor of HO 123. Which will now go through the same process in the Senate and, if successful, will ultimately be the third state to send similar legislation to their Governor’s desk to be signed into law.
Manpower and The Public Hearing Bikers filled every available seat during the public hearing, so the adjacent room was opened up in order to accommodate the overflow. Bikers are one of the most visible constituencies actively utilizing the democratic process through grassroots mobilization. The movement to pass anti- motorcycle profiling laws at the state and federal level is proof positive, and legislators are taking notice.
HO 123’s primary sponsor, Representative Robert Anderst, introduced the bill, emphasizing that the goal was to look forward and improve the relationship between law enforcement and the biking community. Rep. Anderst testified that his support stemmed from the perspective of both a legislator and an advocate. Rep. Anderst is a biker himself, and proudly stands with the motorcycle community.
Anderst said, “We definitely aren’t the caricature sensationalized on TV. Just like any large group, we are made up of individuals … tradesmen to attorneys, truckers to clergy – even a few legislators. What I can say is that the vast majority are hardworking, productive members of society who want to be left alone.”
Twin Power has done it again with the addition of gaskets to their ever-growing product line, giving the Harley-Davidson enthusiast another option when it comes to products for their motorcycles.
Made in the USA, Twin Power gaskets are offered as a kit that contains all of the gaskets and seals necessary, or separately as needed, to perform a specific job. The highest quality kits include AFM and MLS style gaskets.
“One of the biggest complaints we’ve heard about gaskets is how they’re packaged,” says James Simonelli, Brand Manager for Twin Power. “Many of the gaskets on the market are packaged in uneven quantities which makes no sense.”
“We’ve also reduced package quantities on many items to help keep inventory costs down,” adds Simonelli.
The new gaskets (P/Ns 043154 to 043299) from Twin Power retail for $3.95 to $152.95 and can be ordered through your local Tucker Rocky | Biker’s Choice dealer.
