Duke Danger rails Triumph's Daytona 650 around Willow's Streets course during the Vincent Haskovec trackday. Look for a test of this Brit bike in the coming weeks.
Your dream job awaits. Thanks to Kawasaki you can be living the high life of a swanky motojournalist at the AMA Superbike races this May at Infineon.
In the good old days I would have been camping on the hill with the rest of these hard-core fans. Instead, MCUSA is livin' large in a rental house where three bathrooms and a kitchen come in real handy after a long, hard day's work.
We traveled up the coast, stopping in Santa Barbara for a lunch break, still feeling fresh and ready to roam.
The Dukes decided to test the Ducati ST3 on their annual trek to the races at Laguna Seca.
The practical application of the variable cylinder system makes the bike sound as if it was misfiring when running on two or three cylinders.
First seeing the light of day with the recent introduction of the BMW R1200R (above), the new ASC (Automatic Stability Control) system will be offered as an option on the manufacturer's 2007 versions of the K and R series.
The RRR design has already made it past the prototype phase and Kasten is testing his invention as we speak.
Kasten's design harnesses the spinning front wheel to counter-rotate the brake rotors in the opposite direction. The result, according to the inventor, is a 70% reduction in steering effort.
It may not look like much, but this wheel sports a new reverse-rotating brake rotor design that could revolutionize the sportbike industry.
A patented counter-rotating brake rotor design is the brainchild of inventor Robby Kasten, who believes the new innovation will reduce steering effort at high speeds and eliminate tankslappers.
Just two weeks after the MotoGP and AMA Superbike boys laid down the rubber, we ride Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca with Red Shift, a California-based trackday provider.
Trackday's most often break down the participants into three groups: an 'A' group for experts, 'B' group for intermediates and a 'C' group for trackday beginners and novice riders.
Trackday veterans will find the policies at SoCal Track Days accommodating; no scheduled sessions means riders get as much track time as they can handle.
The Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch, located in Pahrump, Nevada, hosts all of SoCal's trackdays. We've gotten to know the circuit well through past bike tests, including our most recent Supersport Shootout.
SoCal doesn't mess around with the Group A, Group B, Group C format. There's just one group and its members get to turn laps on the Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch as long as they want.
MCUSA's Ken Hutchison got an opportunity to learn from the best when he turned laps in front of three-time AMA Superbike champion Doug Chandler at the racer's Champ Racing School.
Tech inspection at Zoom Zoom is usually pretty painless as long as your machine meets the necessary requirements for a safe, fun and event-free afternoon of strafing apexes.
Having fun and being safe are key factors with Zoom Zoom. Instructors are there to make sure you make an easy transition from the street to the track.
Get the front end high and Code's wheelie bar reduces engine power; get it too high and the rear brake will activate.
A single day at wheelie school won't turn you into Gary Rothwell, but it will give you experience getting it up, safely.
