2011 FLSTF Fat Boy
I guess the first thing I should disclose is that I’ve never really liked the Fat Boy moniker that Harley-Davidson put on this Softail motorcycle. But, then, I never liked the name Fatburger–a popular local hamburger chain in Los Angeles–even as I happily devoured their signature sandwich.
BMW S 1000 RR Review
Apparently an old dog can come up with a new trick. That’s not to say that BMW is an "old dog," but certainly they’ve been around for a long time and have tended to be something of an acquired taste. Well hang on to your helmet, because if you’ve got any pre-conceived negative notions about BMW motorcycles, they’re about to wheelie over the horizon.
2009 Concours 14 Review
In the Concours 14, Kawasaki has engineered a first-class vision of the ultimate highway eating, mountain conquering device-a motorcycle with enough power and comfort to take you across the country while providing the performance necessary to turn a quiet back-country road into a thrilling experience.
Potato-potato-potato. That repetitive onomatopoeia was once used in a courtroom to describe Harley-Davidson’s distinctive V-twin idle, a rumble of such specific timbre and cadence that the manufacturer sought to trademark its sound. Victory Motorcycles, keenly aware of the lure and lore of air-cooled V-twins as popularized by Harley, has literally built its new Vision—not to mention their entire brand—around that storied powerplant configuration as well.
Kawasaki’s hard-hitting Ninja ZX-14 has a well-deserved reputation for outputting prodigious amounts of power. Capable of swallowing miles quickly and easily, it snarls derisively when confronted with the possibility of a long-distance ride. However, true sport touring actually requires more than a fearsomely capable motor. Kawasaki clearly agrees, and has produced a touring-specific version and leaves the vaunted muscle-bike to the dragstrip heroes and salt lake junkies.
With a powerful silhouette and low screen angle, it is only the hard luggage that gives away the Concours’ intentions.
2007 Suzuki GSX-R750 Review
I had decided to ride the middleweight Suzuki Gixxer once again on the street to prove to myself that my first impression was correct: This machine is as close to the perfect sport bike as it is possible to get. Well, for now, anyway.
Of all the classes and categories that exist in motorcycling, none is as hotly contested among manufacturers as that of the supersports. Middleweight sportbikes represent the cornerstone of street-going product in the United States, with bragging rights and consumer demand driven directly by success on the racetrack.
