Joe Rocket Motorcycle ApparelTake Joe Rocket’s most trusted and proven race suit – the Speedmaster – and cut it half. That’s pretty much all JR’s design team had to do to create the latest generation Speedmaster jacket. The result, just like the Speedmaster race suit, is a piece of performance apparel that’s ready to ride.
Performance features start with a 1.2 to 1.4mm embossed premium cowhide chassis that’s held together with double overstitching and backed by titanium reinforced shoulders, C.E. approved armor at the shoulders and elbows, and a removable high density spine pad.Comfort arrives in the form of injection molded vent intakes at the shoulders combined with Variable Flow intakes at the forearms and large adjustable exhausts mid-back. And for the cooler temps, a removable insulated vest liner is included.Keeping this all in place is a 6-point SureFit adjustment system at the forearms, biceps, sleeves, and waist. Rider mobility is dramatically enhanced with a combination of articulated expansion panels at the upper back and elbows complimented by FullFlex panels at the inner sleeves.Final detailing includes snap loops and an 8” zipper for jacket to pant attachment, an ultra low profile Neoprene collar, and ample reflective striping.Joe Rocket Speedmaster Jacket:
Sizes: 40 to 54 (54 black only)
Colors: Stealth Black, Hi-Risk Red, Radio Active Yellow, Cool White
MSRP: Starting at $349.99

Our first segment introduces you to the new Arch 1s. This latest, slightly more sporting American V-twin, adds to the original KRGT1 coming from the boutique manufacturer based in Hawthorne, Southern California. Senior Editor Nic de Sena rode through Malibu with Gard Hollinger, who co-founded Arch Motorcycle with his friend, Keanu Reeves. The 1s is a unique ride for sure, and Nic explains what makes the bike really stand out.
For the entertaining story behind Arch Motorcycle from Gard Hollinger himself, you must listen to his podcast episode on Motos & Friends HERE

In our second segment, Associate Editor Teejay Adams chats with multiple Emmy award-winning writer, Producer, Director, and actor, Thom Beers. the former Chairman & CEO of Fremantle Media North America, responsible for American Idol and America’s Got Talent.
Thom’s fertile imagination led to most of the really big reality TV shows such as ‘Deadliest Catch’ (now in its 17th season!), and many others. Of course for us in the motorcycle world, you’ll be interested to hear the genesis and story of how he started the first real fabrication reality show ‘Monster Garage’, that showcased Jesse James, and then how that led to ‘Biker Build Off’ and the ‘Zombie Choppers’ movie.
You’d imagine that most of Thom’s time is spent sitting behind a desk and on his phone. Not so. His intense stories of capturing much of the content for these shows make for some hair-raising listening.
