Re: #343: 2018 Can-Am Spyder F3 - VOTE TODAY

Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with snowmobiles. However..... I test drove these before they were released to the public way back when. Back then I thought it was difficult to ride and sounded like hell. Obviously significant changes over the years, but it still looks like a snowmobile. T...

Re: #342: 2018 Polaris Slingshot SLR LE - THIS WEEK

OK... there are a number of three (3) wheelers (aka: tricycles) that are currently being marketed as motorcycles, including the T-Rex which is manufactured right there in Canada, but this is by far the most offensive and disturbing of the bunch. It doesn't even have a motorcycle engine, it has an au...

The Bad: Wet Weight Star Venture / Star Venture Transcontinental 957 lb / 963 lb... Almost 1000lbs? Your kidding right? That's laughable heavy. This has got to be the heaviest bike out there. Maybe the Boss Hoss V8 beats it? Maybe weight should be in "The Ugly". In these days of politically correct...

Re: THIS WEEK #329: 2018 Yamaha Star Venture - VOTE TODAY

Yes... it is pretty indeed:
pretty big and heavy
pretty difficult to maneuver requiring both forward and reverse assist
pretty engine technology starved
pretty bad on gas mileage
pretty expensive
I chose to take the high road for a change in my initial input, but am having second thoughts.

Just two gripes: - air cooled engine. while the current offering may be powerful enough there is absolutely no excuse for not using all engine cooling technologies available to make this ride smoother. may work well i...

Re: THIS WEEK #328: 2018 Husqvarna TC50 - VOTE TODAY

Leaves me speechless…! What an amazing set of features for a bike aimed at the 7-10 year old market, currently being over populated with “pajama boys” that will be completely unable to have any appreciation for the capabilities of this machine, let alone figure out where the Lyft/Uber driver sits or...

For a while I was at a loss for words, but that was only because I had to clean-up my computer after looking at this thing and coffee immediately shooting out my nose. I like the idea of buying 11 other rides instead of this one. That way you could at least rent them out and make a decent income. Pr...

Know so very little about either this bike or this company, but it's a fail on looks and specs... and from what I read the company and quality ain't that great either. Sure you can buy three of these for every one Ducati Scrambler but after these are stacked up in your back yard as lawn ornaments th...

These bikes have always been on my must have list. Thank God I never purchased one, allowing me to live long enough to tour more of the open roads. I am always envious of the price they put on these incredible advanced technology crotch-rockets for the younger group, while incorporating half the tec...

An amazing "toy" to have in the corner of your garage where you can pull the cover off it, sip a cold beer, and listen to your friends make fun of you for buying it. Truly love the styling and historical pretense, but would believe that the "Cu$$$tom Pricing" set up by management killed a great idea...

Re: THIS WEEK: 2017 Piaggio Beverly 300 by Police - VOTE TODAY

I've been a huge fan of the Vespa since I was a kid and I watched someone rip the rear wheel off and use it to make a go-kart. I realize real men don't ride scooters unless their kitten has pain, but... Bikes like these (yes because they have two (2) wheels I'll call them bikes) truly do continue to...
