Standing tall and proud on the cover of the July Issue of Inside Motorcycles (Vol. 17, Issue 04) is the Triumph Thunderbird Commander. Along with its stablemate, the parallel twin cruisers proved to be a worthy adversary to the conventional V-Twin cruisers crowding the market today. Read our full review from the California press launch in the latest issue.
We also review the fun new 2015 Yamaha FZ-07, a midsized twin that's nimble, versatile, good on gas, sporty and very affordable. We report back from the Canadian press launch in BC with positive reviews in the July issue of Inside Motorcycles.
If touring and far-off adventure are your thing, you'll enjoy the story of a week-long father/son adventure through seven states that's full of lovely slices of Americana and some wonderful riding roads and pleasant distractions along the way. We also take you to the Piston Rally in Spain, a week-long vintage event that includes the aforementioned Rally of 5,000 Curves. Join four old blokes as they enjoy the camaraderie and atmosphere of this gem of a rally.
We highlight some of the country's top-performing Nitro Harley racers, profile Herb Becker and some of the VRRA's top Norton racers and talk about the sea changes happening on the national road racing scene. John Sharrard brings us Part II of Demystifying Grip, explaining how traction works and how bike setup can alter available grip at the rear tire, while Andrew Trevitt offers insight into some of the more unique front ends in the motorcycle world.
