Meet the new 2014 Kawasaki Z1000

Nov 06, 2013 - 10:28 AM - by dascrow


Kawasaki Muscle, Sugomi Style

The “it” factor is hard to describe, but you always know it when you see it. Likewise, the new 2014 Kawasaki Z1000 has a hard-to-define “streetfighter” style that is impactful enough to ensure everyone knows they’re seeing something special. In a significant departure from the concealing bodywork of its sportbike predecessor, the new Z1000 strips-off unnecessary covers and bodywork to expose the superior functionality of its parts. The Kawasaki Z design language has been elevated to a higher level with the new Z1000’s “Sugomi” styling. From its seductively sculpted shapes invoking a crouching predator and painstaking details like its special “Z” logo ignition keys, machined aluminum steering stem bolt, and intricately textured “Z” motif seat cover, to the tighter tolerances of its high-quality components and bodywork, the dramatic result has a very special feel that helps set the stage for the excitement to follow!

Meet the new 2014 Ducati 899 Panigale

Sep 11, 2013 - 12:00 PM - by dascrow


I love this time of year! The sheets are starting to be lifted on next year's models, and the world of Ducati is no different. Last night, or today, or however the International Dateline works, Ducati CEO, Claudio Domenicali, made a presentation at the VW Group Night in Frankfurt, Germany. This presentation was centered around the brand new 2014 Ducati 899 Panigale.

This bike has been speculated at for months and months. It is being heralded as a "Supermid" bike that is built in the visage of the, oh so good, Ducati 1199 Panigale. The new bike is "intended to provide a new way to access the exclusive world of Ducati Superbikes." It has been designed to be a figlio to the father that is 1199 Panigale, and provide the same thrills and exhilaration for the streets.

2014 Harley Davidson Motorcycles Redefined with Project Rushmore

Aug 20, 2013 - 5:24 PM - by NickJ


Okay, I begin this diatribe with a disclaimer. I am not the motorcycle enthusiast that the new Harley Davidson Project RUSHMORE Touring bikes are aimed at.

That out of the way, I can enter into the compliment sandwich that nearly every management training seminar preaches. The best part of this press release is that the power trains of the brand new Touring line have been reworked. They feature a new Twin Cooled High Output Twin Cam 103, or the High Output Twin Cam 103 powertrains. For you, the rider, this means better passing power, and better stopping power with the Linked Brakes and ABS. Add to that, the new Daymaker LED and Dual Halogen lighting, for better visibility, you have the cocktail for better rider confidence while at the handle bars. I like all of these things. More power, for because, better stopping to reign in all that power, and why not better lighting? It all makes absolute sense. Harley Davidson has always been about being muscle bikes. Sportys with 1200cc motors... 103 cubic inch motors in the lead sleds. I get it. Hell, I even like it. Do we really need all that power, no, but why not?

Project Rushmore is billed as the people's Harley Davidson as they are touting that they "listened to the riders out in the real world" to design the new line. To paraphrase, "We are giving the end users what they are asking for." End users being the guys who are buying what bikes? Last year's bike? How about the owners that have been swinging a leg over the same 'ol metal for 15 years? I guess those guys aren't the Harley riders that they are looking to sell bikes to. I don't know about you guys, but I for one cannot afford to go get this year's model and trade the one that I am still making payments on. I intend on making sweet love to my girl for a whole lot of years.

This brings me to where this whole thing falls apart. It can be summed up in a singular, glaring, slap in the face to motorcycling world... "Infotainment." What the hell is any form of "infotainment" system doing on a motorcycle? I get the radio, or iPod connectivity for some speakers on those long rides. So often, oh so often a guy on a Harley with his stereo system cranked to full effing blast, so that I, and everyone else in the whole parking lot can hear that he is listening to Molly Hatchet's "Flirtin' with Disaster." We get it. You are here. I like to listen to music when I drive, absolutely, and when I was younger, I put the big systems in my cars so that every one in the parking lot knew that I was listening to "Gin and Juice." I do not, however think that it has a place on two wheels.

GPS should be triangulated at the rest stop where the group can decide what route we are taking. I thought that was the fun part. Figuring out who, what, when, and where with everyone around cold water bottles while you stretch your legs. If you don't know the area, then you take your time, make a few mistakes, turn around, and get there when you get there. When did motorcycle touring get the point where the Point B pin was the point? I thought it was the blue line in between A and B. Again, I may just be misguided, and miss the point.

I like the integration of the Bluetooth for your helmet... [Read More]
