Fork Buyer’s Guide
Feb 18, 2015 - 4:07 PM - by Motorcycle.com

I honestly thought Yamaha’s 1993 GTS1000 heralded the beginning of the end of telescopic fork front suspension. Yet here we are, 22 years later and besides BMW’s Telelever and Duolever technology (and the Bimota Tesi… -Ed.), the telescopic fork remains de rigueur for motorcycle front ends.

Church Of MO – First Ride: Y2K Yamaha YZF-R1
Feb 18, 2015 - 4:03 PM - by Motorcycle.com

That’s the test we wanted to bring you for this week’s Church feature, but that story seems

Top 10 Vehicles Powered By Motorcycle Engines
Jan 30, 2015 - 9:03 AM - by Motorcycle.com

The history of motorcycle engines powering other vehicles goes back a long way. Look at the original Morgan 3 Wheeler, for example. Almost a century ago, J.A.P. bike engines were plunked onto the front of a strange piece of machinery with two wheels in front and one in the back. It proved to be popular and a rather high-performing vehicle in its time. For this Top 10 list we take a look at other applications for motorcycle engines. As you can imagine with a list like this, there are a wide variety of vehicles. Some are production cars,

Waterproof Winter Jackets/Pants/Suits Buyer’s Guide
Jan 20, 2015 - 10:38 AM - by Motorcycle.com

Winter riding means different things to different people, but we can all agree riding in the winter means chilly temperatures and a high possibility for rain. So, for this week’s winter buyer’s guide, we’re bringing you jackets and pants, all built to keep you dry and warm when the elements conspire against you. We’ve thrown in one-piece over-suits, too, for good measure.

For this guide, we stuck with gear that doesn’t require electricity to keep you warm and specifically sought out waterproof – not water repellent or resistant
