A bike that could be described as an entry-level Dyna, the 2017 Harley-Davidson Dyna Street Bob is the last of the line to be outfitted with the old Twin Cam 103.
To entice less experienced riders, the Street Bob also has a sub-27-inch seat height and mid foot controls. Anyone who likes aggressive styling will appreciate the mini-ape handlebars, bobbed fenders (naturally), solo seat, and twin shorty exhausts.With the engine and handlebars rubber mounted, the Street Bob is a better bike in a straight line than in the canyons. With its good looks and competent performance, no one will suspect that this is a Dyna on a budget.Read our Harley-Davidson Dyna Street Bob 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.
