Ultimate MotorCycling: 2010 June/July Issue

June / July 2010

Ultimate MotorCycling travels to the corners of the globe in the June/July 2010 issue, as we test the all-new Ducati Multistrada 1200 in the Canary Islands off the coast of Africa and the updated Kawasaki Vulcan Voyager 1700 in Death Valley.

Noted fine-art portraiture photographer Shaun Lang goes to South America to cover the displaced Dakar Rally, and traveler Michael Roam visits the Plains and Rockies of the United States.

Four motorcycles are tested, including the Honda’s cruiser/tourer Interstate, the rough ‘n’ ready Harley-Davidson Forty-Eight, the improved Kawasaki Concours 14 and Yamaha’s R1 tribute to Valentino Rossi.

Tag Heuer’s Triumph Bonneville nod to Steve McQueen is featured in the studio, along with Sak Art Design’s unique take on motorcycling.

Product tests include the Hinson Slipper Clutch for the Ducati Monster 1100, HJC’s carbon fiber street helmets, the latest from Cardo Commuications, and the amazing TT jacket from Dainese.

Plus, news, lifestyle (Chrome Hearts, Patron, and Galliano), and more reviews, plus Shop Talk from Bill Miko and Todd Wilson.
