2011 Victory MotorcycleVictory keeps it simple with the Cross Roads, a fairing-free bagger, but that doesn’t mean it lacks the features you need to ride from coast-to- coast.
Large integrated bags, a dual seat and driver floorboards are there for comfort. The undersquare Freedom 106/6 motor has the torque you want and the convenience of a six-speed transmission.Optional aluminum or steel highway bars double as low-speed tipover protection, and inverted 43mm forks, a 130mm Dunlop Elite 3 tire, and dual 300mm floating brake rotors highlight the Cross Roads’ beefy front end. 2011 Victory Cross Roads Quick Specs

Hello everyone and welcome once again to Motos and Friends, the weekly podcast brought to you by Ultimate Motorcycling. My name is Arthur Coldwells.
Motos and Friends is brought to you by Yamaha. You can check out the amazing YZF-R7 at your local Yamaha dealer, or of course at YamahaMotorsports.com. The YZF-R7 is an amazing supersport machine that is comfortable too!
In this week’s first segment, Editor Don Williams takes the smallest BMW ADV bike on an urban adventure in Los Angeles. The BMW G 310 GS is a full size motorcycle with a modest engine, so of course we wonder if it is a little too underpowered and might struggle. Don put it through its paces and gives us his take.
In the second segment, Neale Bayly and Kiran Ridley have returned from the Ukraine to Paris where Kiran is based.
Kiran is an award winning photojournalist, and as an accomplished documentarian, he has covered stories as diverse as drug smuggling around the Mexican border, to the devastation of the Australian Bush Fires, to the tragedy of the Mediterranean migration crisis. Neale and Kiran reminisce about their motorcycle adventure in the Ukraine, and their observations and experiences with the incredibly resilient people of Ukraine, who have been put through such brutal hardship.
