Rolling Free

Having logged over 100,000 miles in the saddle of various motorcycles, I can tell you that if I had one way in which to travel that this would be it. Those that don’t ride will never understand the feeling of freedom, exhilaration and pure connection to the road that riding offers. The fact is that most people are afraid of motorcycles. They hear of horrid accidents and think that most riders have a death wish, when in fact it’s totally the opposite. Ever hear the phrase, “Live to Ride, Ride to Live”… well, it’s 100% true. Motorcycles make you feel alive. They bring to light every sense in your body and offer an almost out of body experience when your cruising down the road on that perfect sunny day. Sure there’s an element of danger in riding, but hell, that’s part of the fun. If you’ve never ridden a motorcycle then please do yourself a favor and try it just once. If you don’t like it, then fine, however don’t simply dismiss it because of what others say as you’ll be missing out on one of the greatest experiences of a life time.

Renard GT

If you’ve ever wanted to know what a ridiculously expensive motorcycle looks like, well then, here you go. This is the Renard GT, a bike that’s made in a little country called Estonia and comes with a price tag of $96,000.00. The Renard GT is marketed as a grand touring power cruiser with “sporty” abilities. What that means to me is that they’ve created a motorcycle that is relatively quick and goes around corners just as good as anything that is already mass produced, but for 10 times the price. Granted, the Renard GT is in fact a pretty trick machine. For instance its carbon fiber monocoque chassis only weighs a tick over 24 pounds and is reinforced with kevlar to quell bumps and vibration. It also has 3D designed CNC machined
hardened aluminum components that are milled from a solid block, as well as a suspension system that is adjustable in three dimensions.

2011 Moto Guzzi V7 Clubman

Posted in Café Racers, Moto Guzzi, Motorcycle by Dustin Driver | August 11th, 2010 | 2 Responses |

Café racers are undeniably gorgeous. There’s something about the stripped-down, DIY racing aesthetic that’s simply stunning. Moto Guzzi knows it and has souped up its sedate (but sexy) V7 Classic to make the V7 Clubman. The bike gets a shiny red frame, a glimmering chrome tank, and some snazzy number plates. From the looks of things, it also gets sportier suspension and an even grumblier exhaust system. No word on whether Moto Guzzi have squeezed some more power out of the V7’s modest 744-cc V-twin. The V7 Clubman will retail in October for about $11,000, $1,500 more than the V7 Classic. Personally, I’d remove the number plates. Or save some cash and run a set of flat or clip-on bars on the already sultry V7 Classic. My neighbor, Gabe Ets-Hokin, runs CityBike and recently had a V7 Classic for review. The bike was a feast for the eyes, a sleek vintage standard that took my breath away every time I passed it on the way to my car. Keep an eye out on CityBike for a full review.
