#TeamGreen The Kawasaki Ninja 1000 ABS is a sport touring bike that I was wanting to review for a while. I like the aggressive styling of the bike and after sitting on it in the showroom, I know I wanted to take this Motorcycle for a test drive. I really like the way the bike …

I Love It! I admit freely to generally liking all Honda motorcycles. Not that I won’t criticize shortcomings on them, but overall I just like the cut of their jib. They build bikes that make the rider feel more confident in their ability. They focus on imbuing their bikes with user friendly torque curves and power …

The 2018 Motorcycle of The Year This review made possible through the help of Blackfoot Motosports in Calgary, Alberta and Kawasaki Canada.

#welovemonster When it comes to Naked Sport Bikes, it’s undeniable that the Ducati Monster is one of the most iconic machines on the market and has been for the last 25 years.

I remember as a kid, my friends and I would always be “tinkering” with our BMZ bikes. Taking things off, putting things on, getting it just right… Then came motocross, the same thing would happen… Change this, change that, all in the interest of getting what you wanted. I remember installing a CR80 front end …

1968 ½ Royal Enfield Interceptor “Custovation” How We Met Sometimes bikes find owners when they meet on the showroom floor. Sometimes they meet in a dimly lit garage with an odor of oil and gasoline in the air. This Rockers life story has none of that. It’s about patience and determination that lead to its …

I probably should have spent the money in the beginning to buy the K1200RS I really wanted — it seems like I’ve spent enough on this K75 to buy two K12’s by now!  I haven’t been pleased with the riding position of the K75 standard; the pegs seem like they’re too far forward, and the …

Sachs MadAss 125 Review   Background I remember reading a financial self-help book a long time ago (when I was quite young) and one of the nuggets of advice the guru imparted was this very catchy phrase: “Trend is your friend”.

Ducati 750GT Bevelhead Alternator Replacement Not too long ago I completed a custovation* of my bevelhead 1974 Ducati 750GT.  In every way, this is a marvelous example of early Italian sport bike engineering — except for the battery charging system. It’s weak and does a poor job of charging the battery.  The main fault is the …

BMW Motorcycle Underwear Review Comfortable, breathable and seems to work as advertised. I’ve had mixed feelings on this motorcycle underwear thing.
