Riding The Edge Of Ontario

Riding The Edge Of Ontario

These days, every tourism board and region under the sun seems to have a route designed for motorcycle riders. That’s a good thing – but do all of them really go the extra mile for the rider?

While I can’t speak for all of the boards, I know the tourist board covering the…

Riding Motorcycles In France: How the French Roll

The best country for motorcyclists? That question could generate a vigorous debate. But if you’ve not ridden in France, and should you have the chance, you should. While we U.S. riders can boast of our expansive spaces, and the broad varieties of geography herein, and cheap gas, we’re well behind the curve in terms of status on the international transportation scale.

Riding Jonathan Rea’s Kawasaki ZX-10R Superbike

Its 2:23 am and I am lying in bed wide awake. I have my hotel window open and I am listening to the rain coming down. Just two weeks earlier if you’d  told me I was going to be in a tiny hotel room in Alcaniz, Spain, I would have laughed. But that’s where I am, and I am filled with so many different emotions. Different emotions because I am here as a guest to…

Cold Weather Riding Accessories Buyers Guide

Cold Weather Riding Accessories Buyers Guide

Riding when you’re cold is no fun, but thanks to the miracle of flowing electrons and other marvels, just because the weather’s cold doesn’t mean you have to be. It all begins with good clothing of course; many riders swear by a layer (or two) of silk or synthetic base layers under as many more layers as will fit under your windproof/waterproof outer shell.

I recently headed back to that area for what’s sadly become an infrequent event in my life: a Sunday ride. It was delightful to dive into Latigo’s buffet of corners with only my pleasure in mind – no video sequences to shoot, no U-turns for yet another pass…
