World Motorcycle Travel
Three-hundred and fifty days, five continents, eight sets of Pirelli tyres and nearly 100,000km (62,000 miles) aboard his Ducati Multistrada 1200 S are just some of the incredible numbers that underline Paolo Pirozzi’s impressive round-the-world adventure.

‘A new biking concept’. That was the brief given to the Ducati Multistrada designers when they started work on the original Multistrada. It arrived on the market in spring of 2003 and created a new and exciting segment, typical of the Bologna manufacturer. A new vision which combined sports performance with trail-blazing capabilities while providing an extremely comfortable ride and unrivalled versatility.
2010 XB12X Review
Originally released two-years ago; the all-road sport touring Buell Ulysses XB12X has been refined and tweaked with each new model year. For 2010, the Ulysses XB12X has again acquired a few minor enhancements, so I decided to revisit this motorcycle once more. Before we get started, I have to say this versatile Ulysses XB12X motorcycle and I have formed a love/hate relationship.

As an off-road rider of over 40 years, I’m used to favorite routes getting closed down. I don’t like it, but it happens. As a street rider with 35 years of experience, a closed paved road really aggravates me. I still haven’t gotten over the closure of San Gabriel Canyon Road (aka California State Route 39) south of Angeles Crest Highway (aka California State Route 2).
