Fork Buyer’s Guide
Feb 18, 2015 - 7:08 PM - by Motorcycle.com

Quote:
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.

Suspension Buyer’s Guide
Feb 06, 2015 - 3:57 PM - by Motorcycle.com

Quote:
If ever a thing deserved the description 'black art,' motorcycle suspension is it. Your bike’s suspension needs to suck up bumps, control fore and aft pitch, steer the front wheel, create traction at the rear … and do it all from straight up and down to leaned all the way over on the tires’ edges.

The fastest machine I've ever had the pleasure of being in was a Ferrari F430. And I called that perfect. I say had, because today I got to ride this: a 2014 BMW S1000RR...and it's faster than a Bugatti Veyron. Probably the best built machine I've ever driven.

It's not just fast, but I was blown away by how comfortable this bike was - it's more comfortable than my Triumph!* It handles like a 600 on the corners and that response from the... [Read More]

Top 10 Vehicles Powered By Motorcycle Engines
Jan 30, 2015 - 12:01 PM - by Motorcycle.com

Quote:
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, while
