This past weekend I got to attend another track day at High Plains Raceway here in Colorado, but this time it was part of the two-day Champ School program run by Nick Ienatsch and the Yamaha Champions Riding School.
The two-day program covered a full range of riding topics. In a nutshell, the...
Hi, I am currently working away in Italy but my motorcycle is in the UK. I intend to fly home grab the bike and ride it over here, in normal circumstance no problem, I could do it in a weekend (it is brutal but I have done it before).

That's quite a mouthful, but it's basically what this thread is. I'm looking for a good vacation destination. I plan on going with a nephew of about 20 years somewhere to hop on the bikes and explore the area. Good motorcycle roads and motorcycle friendly people are a must. I'm leaning...
A few years back a buddy and I took a trip up Pacific Coast Highway from Los Angeles to Vancouver. I've finally had time to edit the series. Here is a link to the first 6 episodes. Each episode is about 20 minutes. Episode 7 is almost finished. Probably be about 12 episodes when all...
I read that none of the major brands will be there, but that's normal for Biketoberfest (Bike Week is when everyone's there!). Also, due to Covid, I'm sure it will be very tame. Nonetheless, I plan to head out there Saturday morning. If anyone else is going and wants to meet up for...

Just out of curiosity.
Who do you trust with your motorcycle?

For me it's pretty simple.
Nobody rides it except myself, or my mechanic if he needs to do a test ride.
I just don't trust anyone with te bike...
I’m a new rider (past my test about a month ago. Yay!) and plan to ride all year round in the UK. I thought passing my test mid summer would give me a chance to get grips with riding on motorways (m25,m23,m3) before chucking in the wether variants but this august has been wet! I’ve been...
