Oozing with personality, the 2016 High-Ball is Victory’s interpretation of the classic bobber, and it gets new wheels and more black paint this year.Featuring ape hangers that are 50-state legal (sometimes dependent upon the height of the rider), along with an exceptionally low seat height, the High-Ball is a serious attitude machine.
Dunlop whitewalls are shod on 16-inch wire wheels, front and back, and the Freedom 106/6 motor propels the rubber with 110 ft/lbs of torque. A solo seat and single-gauge instrumentation cements the High-Ball’s reputation as a no-nonsense machine.Read our Victory High-Ball Review.Visit our Motorcycle Buyer’s Guide.
Zero Electric ADV Bike + Al and Bridget from Throw Your Leg Over
byMotos and Friends by Ultimate Motorcycle
Hello everyone and welcome to Motos and Friends, a weekly Podcast brought to you by the editorial team at Ultimate Motorcycling. My name is Arthur Coldwells.
Electric mobility is everywhere nowadays. Whether it’s a car, a truck, an assisted bicycle, a scooter, or any number of new innovations, the electric revolution is certainly here. In this week’s first segment, Nic de Sena took a ride on Zero’s recently announced new Adventure bike—the Zero DSR-X. There’s been a lot of hype about this new arrival on the ADV scene, and of course the questions are many. Nic talks to me about whether Zero actually have a credible, alternative energy ADV bike—or if the machine is just simply an empty promise.
In our second segment, I chat with Al and Bridget from ‘Throw Your Leg Over’. They took time out to record this episode from somewhere in the middle of Romania, of all places.
These interesting Aussies have traveled—and painstakingly documented—the thousands of miles they’ve covered riding the best roads and sights through Australia, Tasmania, Europe, eastern Europe, and Scandinavia, among other places.
