This From the Dept. of Whine A Lot

We're more than two months away from the start of winter and this shit makes a landing three weeks into fall? Damn, it could be long one, boys and girls.


Over? Over?

Rumors are afoot that the tried and true Kawasaki KLX 650 is gonna be a goner after 2018. This bike has been around for 30-plus years and was the one that brought adventure to the adventure bike scene.

KLR done?

What? Snow In Grand Forks?

Rumor has it, a foot of fluff was dumped up thataway today. Me thinks we're not going to have such a swell fall riding season. Good thing, I guess. One bike stored, one more to go. Don't blame me; I'm grounded from motorcycle flight anyway until the noggin' totally heals. Stoopid bicycle.

Today's forecast is brought to you by Miss CannedHam.

Slow week... Blame the rain.

Italian Moto Culture

Same days, it ain't all Ducatis, MV Agustas, or Aprillias. Some days, it's old men, women and punky bros riding scooters. What can you do? All the action captured by Our Man In the Field on his recent trip to the Boot country.

What? One guy and girl on a motorcycle? Damn.

Ernie don't care 'bout no pedestrians.

Sidewalk traveling.

Yellow is the official scooter color.

On the way to work? On an errand to get pasta? Who knows,

Can't Say We're Digging It

That is, the new Indian FTR 1200 that came out a day or two ago. The prototype that was being shown off  early in the year was da-bomb but this thing? Not so much. Did Uncle Fester lay down the design law in the lab? I mean, wasn't the whole point of having a dirt track-inspired-street-machine look like a bad-ass dirt tracker in the first place? Makes me wonder how many will actually buy the dirt track racer and convert into a street tracker. Hmmmmm. Anyway, a few reads to look at:

This is what should have been built in mass.

This? Not so much.
