The April 2015 issue of Inside Motorcycles has been hitting newsstands and mailboxes this week, and it’s a special one… it’s the magazine’s very first ‘HOW-TO’ ISSUE!
Have you ever wanted to learn how to drag a knee, or do the flat track slide? Want to know how to properly set your rear suspension on your own, or how to take care of a flat tire on the side of the road? Maybe you’re looking for riding tips, like how to emergency brake or navigate a river crossing?
All of that and more – 20 tips in total – are in the April issue of Inside Motorcycles. (Information on how to pick up the latest issue is at the bottom of this post.) This is one issue that’s sure to be a keeper!
Not to be overshadowed, the 2015 Kawasaki Vulcan S graces the cover of our April issue. Designed as an introductory bike with the flexibility to grow as the rider matures, the Vulcan S is highlighted by its peppy 650 inline twin (from the Ninja 650) and a new system called Ergo-Fit, which allows the rider to customize the bike to his or her body type and preferences. With a price tag of just $7,999, it’s bound to be a hit.
Also tested in this issue is the BMW S1000R, the naked, streetfighter version of the infamous, championship-winning RR superbike. Retuned for more useable power and with a riding position that’s a ton more comfortable than its race-bred brother, the S1000R packs 160 horsepower into a bike that’s a ton of fun on the street and is also track-day-ready. Read our impressions of both the S1000R and the Vulcan S in the April issue of Inside Motorcycles!
On the touring front, R. Bruce Thomas takes us to Scotland, where he put down 8,000 km of idyllic riding. It’s a must for motorcyclists, he says. Find out why by reading his article in the latest issue of Inside Motorcycles.
Factor in our usual mix of columns, tech articles, racing coverage and stunning photography, and you’ll find out why the April issue is an absolute must for your collection.
