Re: Ducati to move from L-Twin engines

I find unbe-frackin-lieveable that we are discussing technology on a Harley Davidson. But I guess you think CART and Indycar are the height of racing too. That's not saying I wouldn't ride a harley, but not for tech, just to pretend I'm an outlaw like all you plywood factory workers (union Buy Ameri...

Re: Touring boots with toe sliders?

I think you want Oxtar (now known as TCX, so as not to offend Alpinstars) SS Performance Steet boots.

Re: im looking into these bikes here , and suggestions.

Just to clarify, the MCN article noted that UK riders tend to pick a 600cc I4 for their first big bike. IIRC, you guys have got a tiered licensing system with a minimum rider experience of one year and a maximum engine size and horsepower output (125cc and about 15hp I think) before a rider can pur...
