The 636 returns: The new Kawasaki ZX-6R graces our cover after Colin Fraser gets a few days with it in California. Jason Thorpe discovers that the V-Strom 650 EXP is an excellent all-round machine with comfort, smoothness and lots of storage for the more serious adventure tourer. On the adventure tip, Warren Thaxter visits five states in a two-week off-road adventure in the western US… while on the other side of that fine country, Thorpe was cruising around the Appalachians, finding some sublime riding roads and enjoying the company of friends.
Andrew Trevitt pens an insightful piece on modern riding styles in road racing, comparing the extreme, elbow-dragging form of today’s riders with the more classic styles of the past. Western Canadian columnist Patrick Lambie tips his hat to the hard working volunteers that make the racing world go round, from track marshals to administrative people to racers who volunteer time to teach newcomers. If old, fast bikes are your thing, you’ll want to check out John Sharrard’s Inside Tech column on caring for older bikes… Graham Clayton profiles one of the prettiest race bikes to ever hit a track, the AJS 7R ‘Boy Racer’… and Dave Minnett showcases some of the original ‘musclebikes’ including Suzuki GS, Kawi KZs and Z1s racing in the VRRA series.
Inside the Holiday Buyers’ Guide, check out Vintage Gone Modern columnist Steve Hoffarth’s hilarious Christmas wish list… plus features on some of Canada’s most respected dealers, builders and distributors!
