I just bought the Long Way Round DVD. If you have no idea what I’m talking about it’s the TV series where Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman rides around the world on two BMW R 1150 GS. It’s an amazing journey those guys are taking, and it’s was equally entertaining to watch. I don’t know […] Continue reading

There are a lot of different opinions on the V-Rod design and until I rode it the first time I didn’t think much of it either.

Motorcycle tryout: Aprilia SL 1000 Falco. Should you ever have the chance of riding one of those Italian V2 sports bikes, don’t deny your self the thrill. The Aprilia Falco is no exception, although not as “sport” as the Ducatis or the RSV Mille, but with plenty of pull to give you that “I’m naughty” […] Continue reading
