The May issue of Inside Motorcycles is now available on newsstands across Canada, and it's a big one - 96 pages chock full of two-wheeled goodness to get you amped up now that the riding season is underway. We celebrate the Honda Gold Wing's 40th anniversary with Part One of our two-part special, and you'll also find our 2015 Canadian Ride Guide featuring the most extensive list of rides, rallies and races that you'll find in any single publication!
The Gold Wing started out as a powerful, naked standard bike when it came onto the scene in 1975. Over the first 20 years it transformed into the most famous touring motorcycle in the world. Find out how it got from concept to icon in the May issue of Inside Motorcycles!
Our 2015 Canadian Ride Guide features more than a dozen pages of schedules for rallies and charity rides, race series, riding schools, race schools and track days from one end of this fine country to the other. There is no other list like this in Canada, and you'll find it all in one place - in the May issue of Inside Motorcycles!
The Yamaha R3 is brand new for 2015 and we had the chance to be one of the first to ride the scrappy little 320 cc twin in Alabama in March. To find out what the little rascal is all about, pick up this issue! We also review the Honda NC750S, the second generation of Honda's unique NC (New Concept) series that debuted in 2012.
In our Inside Touring section, a motocross nut discovers the joys of street touring by riding a Ducati Hyperstrada to the Unadilla National motocross race in western New York. His boyish excitement will bring experienced riders back to the feeling of first experiencing the thrill of discovering new places on two wheels, and it may even inspire a few MX fans to give street riding a try.
