On the cover you'll find the new Ducati Multistrada 1200 Enduro, the first true off-road-focused offering from Ducati in quite some time. While it's based on the Multistrada 1200 touring platform, Ducati has gone to great lengths to make the Enduro a bike that's truly competent in off-road situations. Check out the latest issue to hear all about the latest entry into the big-bore adventure market!
Also tested in this issue is the BMW F800R. Revamped in 2015, the F800R is a nimble middleweight standard/naked offering powered by an eager inline twin. It may not be the fastest middleweight naked bike, nor the cheapest, but it's a BMW! Find out what we thought about the latest iteration of this German roadster in the July/August issue (Vol. 19, Issue 04).
Many non-motorcyclists think motorcycle riders are a bit crazy. Many motorcyclists think racers are nuts. And racers almost uniformally agree that sidecar racers are just about the craziest of them all! It takes two to tango in the world of sidecar road racing, including a 'monkey' who routinely hangs half of its body off the side of the machine to help steer. It's a fringe sport with a tight community and a gaggle of wild characters. Delve deeper into the world of Canadian sidecar racing in the latest issue of Inside Motorcycles!
Also in this issue is a feature on lane splitting and the question of whether it will ever be legalized in Canada... a touring story covering a wild two-week adventure from Thailand, through Laos to Sangri La, China and back... Part II of Tech Editor John Sharrard's article on why 450 cc flat track bikes can keep up with the 750 cc Harleys... a feature on veteran flat track ace Mike Labelle... and our usual mix of columnists, industry news, competition coverage and riding tips that continue to make Inside Motorcycles one of Canada's top two-wheel magazines!
Inside Motorcycles would like to take a moment to acknowledge the passing of fellow journalist Rob Harris, who lost his life in a dual sport riding accident in May. You can read editor Graeme Jones' memorial to Rob in the July/August issue as well.
