2006 Honda Gold Wing | Motorcycle Review

When we set off to behold the beauties of Napa Valley, my companion and I wanted comfort and style. We found both in the new 2006 Honda Gold Wing. After adjusting the suspension preload for our combined weight, dialing some warmth into the seat and handlebar heaters, plugging our helmets into the combined audio system, and setting the iPOD to shuffle mode, we were almost ready to go.

2006 Ducati SportClassics | Motorcycle Test

Whether at the heart of the motorcycling craze of the early Seventies or loitering on its periphery, most motorcyclists remember when Ducati's first big-bore machines burst onto the scene. The Super Sport 750, with its striking metallic-silver fairings and sea-green frame, blended proven racing ability with road-going sensibility. The Sport 750, meanwhile, was notable for its bright yellow tank and clip-on handlebars; essentially a production-based café racer, it came from the factory with a raucous, street-savvy personality.

2005 Kawasaki ZX-10 | Kyle Racing Upgrades

Accelerated ZX-10 Superbike

A funny thing happened to me on the way to the racetrack, or so it goes. Recently, on my way to Thunderhill Park Raceway in Northern California, I decided to visit the Monterey Peninsula and say hello to my friend Dan Kyle of Kyle Racing Engines. In a conversation about what's new, Dan showed me the daily ride he's using to get back and forth between home and shop. At first look, in the dark confines of the shop, I thought it was merely a cleaned up Kawasaki ZX-10.

2005 Ducati Monster S2R | Motorcycle Review

Monster S2R Review

The tangerine red Ducati Monster S2R parked in front of a small café in the hills outside Fermignano, Italy, quickly attracted the admiration of two stout, elderly men. One of them furrowed his brow in deep concentration, carefully choosing words from his charming economy of English. “In America, Harley-Davidson is patriotism; in Italy, Ducati is religion.” That elegantly encapsulated the reverence with which Italians regard Ducatis, an esteem that verges on the sacrosanct.

2005 MotoCzysz C1 | Prototype Racer

MotoCzysz C1 Review

We all fantasize about creating the ultimate bike, one that combines the improbable ideas we dream up during commutes, long flights, or while lying on a beach. For most of us these chimeras remain unrealized, but occasionally someone surfaces with the drive, determination, and—above all—the resources to build a dreambike.

2005 Victory Hammer | Motorcycle Test

Victory Motorcycles is taking the next logical step in the evolution of production custom motorcycles by marrying the comfort and rideability inherent in an American cruiser with the high-performance aspects of a sportbike. The resulting machine is raising the bar in the emerging power cruiser market. The impressive 2005 Victory Hammer is a stylish, big American V-twin with bold paint schemes and plenty of chrome that is as at home cruising the boulevard as it is navigating twisting roads.
