The 2022 Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster gets a more responsive motor with additional midrange power from the vertical-twin 1200HT engine. The powerplant also meets Euro 5 emissions standards. Additionally, a new Showa 47mm cartridge fork replaces a 41mm unit, so the front end of the newest Speedmaster should have a noticeably better feel in the corners, as well as enhanced stability.The Speedmaster’s dual seat also gets an upgrade. The rider’s seat now has specific lumbar support, and the passenger seat boasts nearly a half-inch more padding. The passenger can be removed when not being used, and an accessory rack can be installed in its place. Due to the accommodations for a passenger, the Speedmaster’s Showa shock has spring-preload adjustability to set the ride height properly.
Triumph redesigned the analogy-style single clock, giving it a new dial face and bezel. There’s also a tasteful Bonneville badge on the bezel. Nearby is a new all-LED headlight.The 2022 Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster will be available in three colors. The standard Jet Black will run $13,150, with the price jumping to $13,450 for the Red Hooper version, and $13,650 if you like the two-tone Fusion White/Sapphire Black color scheme.We have tested the Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster.2022 Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster SpecsENGINE

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.
