The 2016 Harley-Davidson Softail Breakout is designed for those who like it long and low. For 2016, the High Output Twin Cam 103B motor puts out friendly vibes at all speeds, as well as plenty of power.The 21-inch front wheel and 18-inch rear keeps it thin in the front (130mm) and fat out back (240mm), and the front end is kicked out an aggressive 37 degrees.
Lots of gloss black mixes with the chrome, including the aluminum oil tank, muffler shields, and Gasser cast aluminum wheels in gloss block with machined highlights. Electronic cruise control is standard, and Hard Candy Custom paint is optional.Read our Harley-Davidson Breakout Review.Visit our Motorcycle Buyer’s Guide.

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.
