Speed Read, July 18 2021

The French are out in full force this week, with a Katana from Lucky Cat Garage and an R nineT from Le Motographe. Big news from the OEMs too, with the new Harley-Davidson Sportster S and Zero FXE both breaking cover. Suzuki Katana by Lucky Cat Garage Suzuki’s new generation Katana is a visual smash hit—a modern retro that recalls the past, but stands on its own merits too. If we had to customize it, we’d leave its bones alone and focus on subtle tweaks to add an air of exclusivity to it. ...

[REVIEW] Racer Gloves USA Pitlane Gloves

Gearing Up For The Summer Note: Thanks to Racer Gloves USA for providing the Pitlane Gloves for this review I always carry extra gloves in case of changing weather during my ride. So when Racer Gloves USA asked us if we would like to try out some of their gloves, I asked for two pairs, the Pitlane for warmer weather and the Multitop 2 for all-around waterproof protection. My province eased its pandemic restrictions by late spring, and I felt comfortable heading out for day rides. With the end o...

Pick-n-Mix Treat: A W650 hardtail bobber from South Africa

The Kawasaki W650 has been customized in myriad ways, but we seldom see it as a pure engine donor for another project. And why not? Kawasaki’s classically-style parallel twin is arguably one of the most attractive motors from the past couple of decades. This delightful hardtail bobber uses the engine, gearbox, carbs and the basic electrics from a 1999-model W650. But every other part has come from somewhere else, or been made from scratch. A tasteful combo by owner and builder, Marnitz Venter...

Semi-professionnel: A Yamaha DT125 from BaaM Garage

It’s getting hard these days to tell if a custom comes from an amateur or professional workshop; the part-timers are really leveling up. And then you have that curious middle ground—the growing number of serial custom hobbyists who could probably make the jump into full time if they wished. BaaM Garage is one of those outfits, and they’ve just finished this very tidy Yamaha DT125. It’s a double-duty bike that would look at home on the trails during le week-end, and on tight French city street...

[REVIEW] Gryphon Moto Indy Pants

Introduction I will start by saying I am all for All The Gear All The Time (ATGATT). However, I’ll be honest and say that I often wear most of the gear all the time, as I often switch out riding pants for jeans. I am hoping the Gryphon Moto Indy pants change that. The Indy pants and the matching Vancouver jacket are a complete technical ADV / Touring suit for around $500 USD for both pants and jacket. It features waterproofing, several pockets for storage, ventilation, CE Level 2 knee protectio...

2022 Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT: From The Nürburgring With Love

The 2022 Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT is arriving with a literal bang! Fresh from breaking the Nürburgring Nordschleife lap record for production SUVs in June 2021, Porsche’s latest creation ran the entire 20.832-kilometer German proving ground in a mind-boggling 7:38.925. That’s around four seconds faster than the equally astonishing Audi RS Q8, which ran the same course in 7:42.253 back in 2019. Yes, Nürburgring speed records are a bit overrated, but Porsche is trying to prove a point. You see,...

Better by design: A Yamaha TRX850 built by an architect

Back in the 90s, the Japanese manufacturers went through a phase of building Italian-style sportbikes. Honda had the SuperHawk, and Suzuki the TL1000S—both 90° V-twins. Yamaha, however, took the 10-valve DOHC parallel twin used in its sport tourers and came up with the TRX850. The critical reception was mixed, to say the least, but these days the TRX850 is appreciated a little more. It’s a good value secondhand buy, and with upgrades to the suspension and brakes, it’s a torquey and fun mach...

The Best Motorcycles of the 1980s

As we continue our journey through the decades, it’s time to take a look at the best motorcycles of the 1980s.

It was a decade of immense vision, with motorcycle manufacturers pushing the boundaries of design and squeezing even more performance out of their machines.

Top 5 JDM Irons

Japan is the second-largest golf market in the world. As such, Japan is home to many brands we don’t hear much about, but it’s not due to lack of performance. In Japan, the first place golfers look for new equipment is GOLF Partner. GOLF Partner is not only the largest golf retail chain in Japan, but is the largest i...

Build. Train. Race.: Three killer Royal Enfield race bikes

We love Royal Enfield North America’s Build. Train. Race. program for two reasons: it shines the spotlight on women in motorcycling, and it produces killer bikes. Now in its second season, it’s a grassroots initiative where a selection of women riders are each given a Royal Enfield 650 twin to customize for racing. Then they spend some time training, before duking it out on the track. Last year’s edition of BTR stuck with flat track racing only, but Royal Enfield have now added road racing to...
