A lot of first time riders ask, what type of motorcycle is best for them. There’s no single answer, but on the background of my personal experience, here’s a few things I think you should consider. Which motorcycle type to choose? Sports bike, cruiser, touring, dual-purpose or street bike, there’s a lot to choose from […] Continue reading

Yeeeeeeaaargh! weeeehee!!! yeeaaaargh!!! Just got back from the Speedway Grand Prix in Parken, Denmark. Spirits was very high as the Danish Hans Andersen won the Grand Prix and every heat was insanely close.

Gymi tells us about his Kawasaki ZXR1100 Eddie Lawson Replica: I bought this bike September of last year after riding a Honda Shadow Spirit for the last four. I really didn't know what I was going to buy at the time. Several bikes interested me, The Honda 919, Yamaha FZ 1, BMW R1150R, and Kawasaki Nomad. I was drawn to the ZXR for the ELR look.

In terms of modern design and technique it’s a big leap ahead from the ER5, but is it a good bike? […] Continue reading

Is the day where a 1000ccm sport bike was the wet dream of every young bike nut beginning to see an end? 400ccm to 650ccm single and twin cylindered supermotos, flat trackers and street fighters are starting to pop up everywhere. Right now most of them are custom builds or kit bikes, like the Ron […] Continue reading
