Lend your Sportster or Softail a look and sound characteristic of flat-track racers. The RSD Track 2-into-1 High Pipe ($779.99) has a high-temperature black ceramic coating and choice of gloss black or chrome heat shields and tip. The fiberglass/stainless-steel wool muffler packing and newly designed baffle are said to voice a deeper tone.
Be bad to the bone with the latest Wolverine-made footwear. The Harley-Davidson Kingmont Performance Boot ($180) is a mid-height biker boot with an easy-entry inner-side zipper. Features include full-grain leather upper with TecTuff overlays, mesh lining, and Goodyear Welt construction securing the oil-resistant non-slip rubber sole.

With retro all the rage, here’s the very flat-track race replica jacket that spawned a trend. The Vanson Leathers Star Jacket ($799) is constructed of competition-weight cowhide with a rayon lining and two inner pockets, brass zippers on cuffs, rear exhaust vents, and leather-wind-flap-backed main entry.
Got rusty pipes or just like the hot-rod style and performance benefit of retained header heat? The DEI Titanium Exhaust Wrap ($49.95 per 50-foot roll) is now available in satin black. Made of pulverized lava rock stranded into a fiber material of proprietary weave, the 2-inch-wide wrap is said to be more durable than traditional fiberglass.
Looking for riding jeans that don’t outwardly appear to be as such? Devoid of telltale external cues, the heavy-duty Cordura denim Klim K Fifty 1 Jean ($289.99) conceals its protective features well. Kevlar panels in slide zones, D3O EVO hip and knee armor, impact foam tailpiece, and moisture-wicking polyester mesh lining have you covered.
