I rode the R1200RT, and absolutely loved it. But I’d have to… Continue reading

I went back to Biggs Harley today. I scheduled a test ride on the Buell 1125r for next Saturday. They did have a sales guy there who is familiar with Buells (he rides a Uly), so I was able to ask him some questions about the bike.

Yoshimura Race Shop USA and Suzuki announced that a new limited-edition racer version of the Gixxer literbike will be available to the public. And unlike the… Continue reading
Trying to design and build “green”, zero-emissions motorcycles is becoming sort of a big deal. There’s even an eGrandPrix going on at Vintage Motorcycle Days at Mid-Ohio this year. I don’t particularly have anything against the idea of zero-emissions, environmentally friendly motorcycles. Sooner or later, that’ll… Continue reading

I took a trip down to San Diego BMW Motorrad today to see what kind of deal they’d give me on a R1200RT, so I could compare and contrast it to North County BMW. Turns out that they want to do a deal a little more than North County… Continue reading
Ever since BMW announced it would begin producing a liter-class sportbike to compete with the Japanese, people have been waiting for the BMW S1000RR.
