Yes, a new issue of Inside Motorcycles is on sale now! What’s inside, you ask?
We review two exciting models including our cover bike, the refined-for-2013 Honda CBR600RR. Senior editor Colin Fraser writes the review, but Pro Sport Bike champ Jodi Christie gets the glory with the cover shot. He also writes a second impression after joining Fraser on the press launch at Chuckwalla in California.
Managing editor Graeme Jones goes to Ottawa to test out the brand-spankin’-new 2014 Yamaha Bolt and Bolt R-Spec, an urban cruiser that packs a lot of goodness into a package that retails for about 9 grand.
Western touring writer R. Bruce Thomas takes readers on a neat trip to Saskatchewan to prove that the province isn’t ALL flat and boring.
We bring you a Canadian exclusive on custom builder Cliff Randall’s ‘Hyper Touring’ Kawasaki ZX-14R, a one-of-a-kind sport touring rocket with a nitrous kit in the saddle bag.
Byrne Bramwell was the only Canadian to compete in last year’s Cannonball Antique Motorcycle Endurance Run, finishing the friendly competition with a perfect score and successfully putting 6,367 km on his 1929 Henderson motorcycle on the 17-day trip. Ready Shannon Lee Mannion’s story on the man and his journey in the June issue of Inside Motorcycles.
In competition, we preview the Mopar Canadian Superbike Championship, Atlantic Roadracing League and CMA Dirt Track & Speedway series. We also report on the new Grand Prix class coming to the Vintage Road Racing Association this year.
Our columnists are at the top of their game again, as Larry Tate talks about the brave new world of electronics (“How much of it is really necessary?” he asks), Patrick Lambie talks about the lessons learned in getting a speeding ticket, and Frank Wood chats with some of the country’s best flat trackers about the exciting once-a-year 750 Twins invitational in Welland. Inside Tech columnist John Sharrard responds to a reader’s question about sleeved vs. sleeveless cylinders.
