It’s a bagger blowout: Victory’s Cross Country, Harley’s Street Glide and Star’s Stratoliner Deluxe! Motorcycle.com tests the most popular in light-touring slash boulevard cruisers and I was there to shoot it. High in the secret testing canyons of Southern California, Kevin Duke, Pete Brissette and Jeff “the new guy” Cobb flog these baggers for your …

2010 Honda NT700V Review

Previously Published on Motorcycle.com We Americans want everything. And when we spot a sexy new model (motorcycle) on the showroom floor (okay, the women too), in Europe that we can’t have, we start whining. But Americans just don’t buy naked-type bikes like the Euros do and the cycle continues. Once in a while, the manufacturers …

2009 Vespa GTS 300 Super

2009 Can-Am Spyder SE5 Review

Smack dab in the middle of two alphabet-class weather events lay a narrow window of opportunity to ride the latest and greatest creations from the Canadian minds at Bombardier Recreational Products. Who closed the door on bluebird Texan skies? Ike did, or maybe you can blame Gustav for whittling our full day’s excursion to a short-order dish. We weren’t even off the hotel property before every stitch of my clothing was drenched in the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Despite the rain, it wasn’t a wasted trip. It only took a mile in the rain to experience the technological wonder that BRP has created.

Thank You America

In exchange for putting down the camera and tapping a few million keystrokes, I’m (finally) given the opportunity to report on a motorcycle from another country. To do so, I needed to update my antique passport – asap. After sweating the logistics, paying my 160$ fee and waiting only 2 more days, I walked away …
