Yamaha FJR 1300

Reviewing cars and motorcycles for living is a dream job and anyone who tells you differently is lying. For the most part things go off without a hitch, however there are times when shit goes south and when that happens all bets are off. The following motorcycle reviewer found this out first hand when the saddle bag on his Yamaha FJR 1300 tester caught a pole and thus sent him ass-over-end off a pier. To quote the great rock band Dire Straits, “Sometimes you’re the windshield, sometimes you’re the bug”. Click through and check it out.

This week on RideApart host Jamie Robinson and guest Sean Matic head from Los Angeles to Lake Arrowhead on a Honda CRF250L and a Suzuki DR-Z400 to see which is better.

Suzuki GSX-R 1000

Motorcycle and auto manufacturers alike love to tout about how much technology is stuffed into their vehicles.

Former 500 Motor GP winner Simon Crafar talks about his distaste for this technology and how for some, old school is the way to go.

Granted these babies aren’t as nimble as a little 250 cc dirt bike, but if there was a zombie apocalypse coming I’d much rather be on one of these.

If you’re lucky enough to have the budget for a bike as a weekend toy, the tough decision becomes which style, then which model, to pick. Read More…
