Moto Guzzi Stelvio Long Term Owner’s Review (Video)

Had my Stelvio for over 1000 miles now and I have a few praises and a few complaints. One, it’s one of the best touring bikes out there. Yeah, maybe it’s not super high tech by today’s standards but I’m old(ish) and cranky and I don’t need the the latest lean sensitive, automatically adjustable, sat...

The New Honda CB500X

This is a great little bike. Too many people are overly focused on engine performance but forget that when you're off road weight matters more. I had a chance to ride this bike (on road only) and found it to be a good choice for the rider who wants something lighter and simpler than the big machines...

2019 Ducati Multistrada 1260 S Review

Loved this bike. I once boredom a friend's 2010 Multistrada (the first year of the model) and rode it for a 1000km. This one is superior in every way. In particular the electronically adjustable suspension kept the bike super planted and inspired confidence in the sweepers. Made a video of the ride ...

Will the KTM 790 Adventure Kill the 1090 Adventure?

So I recently had the opportunity to ride the 1090 Adventure R in Niagara wine country in ontario Canada. Thoughts? Love the bike. I think it might be my favourite KTM... maybe. It's a great ride with just the right balance of weight, power, comfort and affordability. However, KTM now has a 690, 790...

KTM 1290 Super Adventure S vs R Comparison

Beautiful ride through Niagara wine country on the KTM Super Adventure S. I rode the R version a couple of days earlier but unfortunately lost the footage. Still, it was fresh in my mind so I compare the two. They are both ridiculously amazing bikes. I run through a lot of the details and impression...

How to ride with a GoPro for under $200

It’s a good idea to ride with a cam in case something happens even if you never publish the footage. Just started doing this and came up with a setup for under $200. If you have your own tips please share:

Did you buy your bike new or used? Why?

I got my Moto Guzzi Stelvio used. It was a 2014 with about 15000km on it. It cost me less than half of what a brand new one would run. My wife, who is getting her motorcycle license just bought a 2015 Honda CB300F, again for about half the price of a new bike in the small naked class. My question is...

Re: New Canadian Adv Rider

I actually mean the Madawaska Valley which is technically Central Ontario, but it's Northern if you live in Toronto. I have a cottage very near Algonquin Park and am looking forward to exploring all the little gravel roads in the area. There are so many that it should keep me busy for a couple of su...
