The November issue of Inside Motorcycles features another jam-packed array of tests, adventure stories, touring tales and racing features to satisfy every motorcycle enthusiast’s sweet tooth!
Our cover model is the brand-new BMW S1000RR HP4, which Senior Editor Colin Fraser got to test in Spain last month. He discovered that the German company has hardly been resting on its laurels… moving to more docile machinery, Fraser also provides his impressions on the Husqvarna TR650 Terra and Strada that are making their way to Canada for 2013. And Larry Tate provides a neat comparo between the 2012 Ducati Multistrada Touring and the Moto Guzzi Stelvio 1200 NTX, both of which he spent considerable time with on separate touring adventures. How do they stack up against each other? Find out in the November issue!
Nancy Yun takes us on an adventure to Olympic National Forest in Washington state for the AltRider Hoh Rainforest Ride. Sometimes a great riding area is like that special fishing spot – even though you know you’ve found something special, you don’t want to share the secret – but Nancy lets the cat out of the bag and shares the beauty of this ride with the readers of Inside Motorcycles.
If touring is your fancy, read Tate and Patrick Lambie’s columns; Tate talks about his love for fall tours while Lambie reminds himself (and us) how procrastination can get in the way of enjoying things like weekend road trips with friends.
Jason Thorpe introduces us to Moto Gymkhana, an exciting new sport that is just about to catch on here in Canada. We give real-world tests to the Held Slade racing suit, Bridgestone’s latest track tires and a unique security lock for your helmet. Inside Tech columnist John Sharrard helps us get a better understanding of how falling off your bike is related to suspension setup, while Andrew Trevitt speaks on the very latest and most high tech active and semi-active suspension systems.
On the racing side of things we profile grassroots dirt track Paris Speedway and 2011 VRRA #1 plate holder Jody Pearce, Colin Fraser analyzes Max Biaggi’s dramatic and narrow World Superbike title win, Vicki Schouten reflects on the tightness of the racing community and Graham Clayton highlights the awesome Kawasaki H1R in his Rapid Classics feature.
In summary, another issue of Inside Motorcycles that’s filled to the brim with motorcycle goodness. Mmm mmm mmm!
