Technology and the Pitfalls Of Perfection | Drawing the Line

Unless you're familiar with motorcycles from decades ago, it can be difficult to appreciate just how close to perfect modern bikes really are. My experience with bikes from the 1950s and '60s-particularly with British bikes from that era-has given me a real appreciation for how great motorcycles are today.

Re: Yamaha XJ650 by Ad Hoc

The sign of a truly skilled custom motorcycle builder is the ability to create something beautiful from inauspicious beginnings. I'm not saying that the shaft-drive Yamaha XJ650 is a sow's ear, but it's certainly not in the same aesthetic league as a Moto Guzzi Le Mans or BMW R100, say.

Continental TKC 70 Tires Review

Continental's new TKC 70 radial tires are a good choice for adventure and dual-sport riders who spend most of their time on-road but still need dependable traction in the dirt. If there's a staple tire among the street-legal knobbies out there for dual-sport and adventure-touring bikes, it's probably the Continental TKC 80. This square-knobbed stalwart is popular because it's fairly quiet, reasonably sticky on dry tarmac and safe in the rain, yet digs its big, widely spaced knobs into dirt, gravel and mud as tenaciously as many off-road-only tires.

It resonates with BMW designs of decades past, with a retro-cool roadster design and a big fat 1200cc boxer engine, even as the company establishes itself as a force in the razor sharp end of the superbike and super-naked field.
