Learning The Ropes

This month’s routine is a simple exercise that works your grip, forearms, biceps, and latissimus dorsi (lats).

2011 Sportster 883L SuperLow Motorcycle Review

When I heard of the new Sportster 883L SuperLow, I envisioned a ground-hugging, peg-scraping Sportster, very different from the 883 and 1200 Low already available. Turns out the SuperLow isn’t that much lower in actual seat height. But because of a complete overhaul by Motor Company engineers in steering geometry, wheel and tire sizes, and […]

2011 Saxon Reaper Motorcycle Magazine Review

As I’ve written in my column, to have the best of both worlds everyone should own a bagger and a hot rod. The bagger is like a wife, designed to go for long distance rides in comfort. The hot rod is like a mistress, just the ticket for a few hours of adventure. And while […]
