Volume 16, Issue 01 of Inside Motorcycles marks the start of our 15th year in business! Watch for a big celebration issue in the coming months. In the meantime, our March issue takes a look at the revamped Yamaha FJ1300, a comfortable bike with sport bike power and all the amenities of a good touring bike. Check out the newest issue to hear editor Graeme Jones rave about it.
The Victory Hard-Ball is a gorgeous combination of a bagger and a cruiser, complete with ample saddlebags and classic ape hangers, topped off with a retro paint job in matte black with red pinstriping. Vicki Schouten puts it to task and draws some serious attention in California. Tying in nicely with the Hard-Ball feature is a massive 8-page Cruiser and Bagger Buyers' Guide, featuring every dang cruiser available for Canadians to get their hands on, from a $38,000 limited edition Indian to the $3,500 retro Tha Heist by Cleveland Cyclewerks. Complete with scannable QR codes and details such as price, weight and seat height, if you're looking for a new cruiser, this is the magazine for you.
John Sharrard takes the Honda CBR1000RR to the track and decides to run it against Jodi Christie's Canadian Superbike version of the same bike. What's the verdict? Check out the March issue to find out.
We look back on the past show season with interesting tidbits and photos, Larry Tate takes us back to the fall with a riding adventure through the northeastern US and Andrew Trevitt talks about e-bike technology. We also profile racers young and old, from 16-year old flat track champ Braden Vallee to the sidecar duo of Steve Rice and Dave Powell, who last made their mark more than 40 years ago.
