Is the S1000XR worth $2K more than the new Versys 1K LT?

Feature for Feature they are virtually identical. BMW has more ponies and warranty. Versys has more room, standard saddlebags (another $1K+ for the BMW), and it appears, better weather protection. Plus, no annoying buzzzzzzzzzzzz (widely known though for some no bother).

Is anyone going to cross shop these two? Thoughts?

COBDR – August 2019, Big Bikes

I am planning to do the Colorado BDR in August 2019. Starting the broadcast early in hopes of getting a few other big bike riders to join me.

My trip this year (2018) was the MABDR, which I rode in May.

Looking for people with at least a little offroad experience that can handle a 20-50mph offroad pace...depending on terrain.

I'll most likely camp half of the trip and stay in hotels half of the time, alternating days of camping and hotel stay. However, I'm open to doing hotels every...

690 Enduro R headshake

A couple of weeks back I took the plunge and got back into riding after about 10 years without a bike, bought a 2017 690 Enduro R demo from my local dealer in Rutherford. Great bike, plenty of power, lots of fun to ride. I noticed some head shake of varying degrees at around 100 kph, the salesman suggested it may be coming from the tyres, the bike was a demo that had Dunlop 606's installed on front and rear. I decided that I could live with it until the tyres were due for a change out. I...

Big Brother is watching you in the Park

On Saturday last I was riding the mighty gen1 KLR with a couple other bikes on Hidden Valley Rd. east of Teakettle Junction in Death Valley when we bumped into a couple park workers. They were downloading from a small plastic box all data for the last three months. The device is left by rocks near the road side and records when a vehicle goes by with date and time. They told us they have them all over the park including the back country roads.

So the next time you are doing a midnight ride...

Ducati Hypermotard SP (939)

I have been wanting one of these bikes since the 821 model hit the streets. But I could not rationalize the high price tag to myself for a bike that appeared on the surface to be unpractical for mile munching and general rider comfort. So I continued to look at the SP every time I was in a Ducati store and would sit on it for long periods of time. Continued to read and watch the reviews but--Jeezus--that bike sure cost A LOT!!! Maybe next year.........

A friend of mine from Southern...

KTM Naming Convention Help: EXC, SF, SX, SXC, SMC, MXC, R …?

As I search Craigslist, I'm totally confused. Which ones are dual sport?

EXC, XCW, SF, SX, SXC, SMC, SMR, MXC, R, Enduro, Super Enduro, Duke, Super Duke ...?

Why are the engines referred to as LC4 and LC8?

Is there an easy way to understand this multidimensional grid:

Model designation x Engine type/size x Street legality x Model Years available

Thanks!
