2017 Grand National Roadster Show Report

Feb 23, 2017 - 11:02 AM - by Motorcycle.com


As the eventís name implies, this show, first launched in 1949, focuses on four-wheeled vehicles albeit not all technically qualifying as 'roadsters' which back in the day meant an open two-seater minus doors and even windshields. Tracing the nomenclature further, 'roadster' initially was the label attached to a horse well-equipped for traveling, and later applied to bicycles and tricycles of the late 1800s.

Sportiness was the operative word no matter the size of the chassis, so 'roadster' could include the full spectrum of cars from an everymanís Model T to a celebrityís 16-cylinder Caddy. Itís noteworthy that 'roadster' is an American creation, the Brits calling such cars a 'two-seater tourer.'

So, to stretch the rules a bit, motorcycles, in that they are very 'open' and often offer seating for two, have found their way into the Grand National Roadster Show, including this yearís 68th running of the event. First staged in Oakland, California, a.k.a. the Oakland Roadster Show, this go-around was the 14th year the GNRS was held at the Pomona Fairgrounds Fairplex.

Along with some 500 show vehicles, a section was set aside for motorcycles as seen here.

When Will My Motorcycle Battery Die?

Feb 22, 2017 - 3:52 PM - by Motorcycle.com


It depends where the bike lives: Hot and cold climates are both harder on batteries than temperate climes, and bikes that get ridden regularly are easier on batteries than ones that sit for months Ė though a good battery tender with a float feature negates much of that. In fact, I was bragging about the Shorai lithium-iron battery in my bike not long ago, which must be seven years old now and has never seen a charger, when my friend Jim said big deal, the original equipment sealed AGM battery in his VFR lasted 9.5 years, and his 21-year old Ducati is only on its second battery. So, sealed batteries can last a long time especially if youíre OCD about maintenance.

According to several sources including BatteryStuff.com, though, your 12.3-volt reading means your battery may be on its way to Nirvana; a fully charged one should read 12.7 volts or above. Since you like to play with your voltmeter, there are instructions to ďstress testĒ your battery at the same page, along with a lot of other battery tidbits that will let you know for certain if itís time to replace.

Send your moto questions to AskMOAnything@motorcycle.com. If we donít know the answer, we know who does, and if they donít know weíll make up something reasonable-sounding. What do you want for free?

Top 10 Signs Itís Time To Winterize Your Bike

Dec 02, 2016 - 3:34 PM - by Motorcycle.com


Iíve often felt that the real reason many motorcyclists donít winterize their motorcycles is that they keep holding off in hopes to squeeze in one more ride. Although the MO Towers are located in Southern California, many of us ventured from colder climes to the Great American West in an effort to enjoy year-Ďround riding. The journalism gig is just something we managed to weasel our way into as a means of supporting our habit.

In an effort to help dedicated riders in places that have real winter, the following list contains sure-fire signals that it is time to winterize your motorcycle rather than continue riding it or letting it sit unprepared developing the mechanical manifestations of Parked Motorcycle Syndrome.
