Kawasaki Ninja 300 Photos/Images/Pics/WallpaperWhen it comes to entry-level sportbikes, Kawasaki is king. The Japanese marquee has led the segment since the Kawasaki Ninja 250 invaded the motorcycle market in 1983.
Stateside, the bike remained in a category of its own until Honda released the CBR250R in 2011. The CBR was the first bike to compete with the Ninja after the Kawi was the sole quarter-liter sportbike for almost three decades.With competition on the prowl, Kawasaki decided to offer a completely revamped entry-level sportbike for 2013 – the Ninja 300.The Nina 300 sticks to the entry-level specifics of the Kawasaki Ninja 250 R, featuring lightness, agility and optimal fuel mileage. But Kawasaki amped up the displacement (249cc vs 296cc) and added loads of technology, including digital fuel injection, a new F.C.C. clutch with assist and slipper functions, and optional ABS.And the best part? The bike is offered for a wallet-friend $4,799 (add $700 for ABS).Attached above is a photo gallery of Kawasaki Ninja 300 images. Each photo also makes for great wallpaper.

Suzuki V-Strom 1050 DE + Scott Casey – Living with PTSD and the Rolling Barrage
byMotos and Friends by Ultimate Motorcycle
Hello everyone and welcome once again to Motos and Friends, a weekly Podcast brought to you by the editorial team at Ultimate Motorcycling.
My name is Arthur Coldwells.
The new Suzuki V-Strom DE has just been announced, and Avery Innis, Training and Publications Manager from Suzuki Motor USA, is just the expert to explain its nuances to us. The V-Strom has always been a superb, yet inexpensive platform, and the new DE variant gets more serious about ADV riding. I find out from Avery whether the new upgrades are worthwhile; and the place that the new V-Strom has in the current market.
Our second segment covers a subject that’s a little more serious than usual.
Many veterans and first responders suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, aka PTSD.
Scott Casey—himself a sufferer—decided to try and help his fellow vets, and started a cross-Canada charity ride in 2016 called the ‘Rolling Barrage’. It was—and is—incredibly successful.
It’s not just a tremendous ride. The Rolling Barrage is a place for like-minded sufferers and their supporters to ride together. They get some serious “wind therapy” whether it’s on just a stop, or a leg of the ride, one day, a weekend, or even the whole ride. Scott opens up with Associate Editor Teejay Adams about his personal history, and how he came to create such a brilliant and worthy real-world event that truly helps.
The Rolling Barrage is a supportive network of brothers and sisters. To quote Scott Casey: “this is the family you never knew you had”.
It was a Nation exploding into civil war. In 1992, the collapse of the former Yugoslavia triggered an international armed conflict that would last more than 3 years and eventually see nearly 100,000 people killed. Canadians were thrown into what was declared a peacekeeping mission, but it wasn’t. They were going well beyond the rules of engagement that were provided by the UN. Told by Scott Casey, Former Canadian Peacekeeper.
