Byron's sure to be hunched over a laptop after the checkers are flown, caught in his own little version of heaven. Whether on dirt, street or a combination of both, MotoUSA's newest addition knows the only thing better than actually riding is telling the story of how things went down.
Motorcycle USA media partner, Cycle News, starts the December 4, 2012 issue with a test ride aboard Michael Rutter’s MotoCzysz 012 E1PC at Portland International Raceway. Readers will also get a glimpse into the development of the MotoCzysz machine and its race history in the Isle of Man TT, FIM e-Power and TTXGP race series over the past few years. Editors then test the 2013 Yamaha FJR1300A and find that amenities like the Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle, cruise and traction control as well as ABS provide ample piece-of-mind while riding in cold temperatures on wet, slick roads. Ben Spies sits down to talk about his recovery and his plans for the coming MotoGP season with Pramac Ducati. Off-road racers were given a challenge during the 2012 Tecate Hare Scrambles, with KTM’s Ivan Ramierz scoring his first win as a factory rider.
