The Motorcycle for Daytona Bike Week

Wednesday, March 4, 2009

The key to a good time anywhere you go is simply riding the right bike. And while we all know sportbikes are for fast thrills at the racetrack, motocross bikes for humongous dirt jumps, when it comes to cruising the boulevard during Daytona Bike Week, if you’re not on a bad-ass bobber, than you’re missing […]

MotoUSA live from 2009 Daytona Bike Week

Tuesday, March 3, 2009

Hey all, Associate Editor Adam here. I’m finally on the ground in Daytona Beach, Florida for the 2009 installment of Daytona Bike Week. But getting here wasn’t easy. Due to unseasonably cold/wet/snowy weather at Delta’s Atlanta, Georgia hub over the weekend our original flight was cancelled, leading to a ridiculous zigzagging 18-hour cross-country reroute. Fortunately […]

Metzeler Roadtec Z6 Interact Review

Thursday, February 26, 2009

We just returned from an epic 200-plus mile motorcycle adventure for the press introduction of Metzeler tire’s new Roadtec Z6 Interact sport-touring tire. Today’s ride took us from the summer-like warmth of Palm Springs, California up through more temperate sections of the Anza-Borrengo Desert State Park and back. As you can see, Metzeler’s new Roadtec […]

Harley-Davidson Finally Equals Performance

Monday, February 23, 2009

For sport-oriented motorcyclists, there’s always been something to be desired in terms of performance in regards to the Harley-Davidson brand. While the technology it employs hasn’t exactly been known as cutting-edge, elements such as the engine’s inimitable shake, rattle and roll, not to mention the sound of its two huge pistons going thud-thud-thud are all […]

2009 600cc Supersport Shootout Commences!

Wednesday, February 18, 2009

If you’re a full blown moto speed freak, it doesn’t really get any better than flogging six brand-new, rainbow-colored Supersports around Willow Springs International Raceway. Well actually, it does… Motorcycle USA is in amidst of its seventh annual Supersport Shootout and despite awaking to rain drenched roads accompanied by ominously gloomy skies, not to mention […]

Are You an Expert Traveler?

Sunday, February 1, 2009

Are you an expert traveler? This was the question asked of me as I cruised through the airport today. I guess I’ve always measured myself an expert. Obviously a good part of my profession includes traveling, mostly on commercial airlines, with an unusual amount of luggage for a solo dude.   But, besides having both […]

Life is a Traffic Jam

Monday, January 26, 2009

Especially in Southern California. It doesn’t seem to matter what day of the week or even time for that matter. If you’re on the 405 freeway its going to be jam packed tighter than a ‘70s disco. Under normal circumstances, I avoid that stretch of road like a frat kid shuns sobriety, but in some […]

Crash. Bang. Boom.

Monday, January 12, 2009

“Motorcycling’s dangerous.” I hear it all the time. Everyone from the check-out girl when I’m a helmet-donned customer at the grocery store, to the gas station cashier when I tell him I need $50 on pump 2… “And hurry it up, ’cause I’ve got motocross practice to catch at 9:00 a.m. sharp.” But what the […]

Bright Lights, Big City

Sunday, January 4, 2009

The bright lights of Supercross returned to the big city confines of Southern California–kicking off the 2009 season. Every year it feels kind of like déjà vu; cool temperatures, sporadic rain, and tens of thousands of eager fans. It’s a celebration of sorts, commencing another year of two-wheeled motorsports. And although watching Supercross racing really […]

The Streets a Racetrack

Wednesday, December 17, 2008

Excess. For good or for bad, it’s something that has plagued me ever since I can remember. Whether it’s riding, partying, working-out, or [insert your activity here], you can count on me to totally overdo it. Thankfully, as I’ve grown, I’ve finally begun to recognize my peculiar trait and under normal circumstances I can cope […]
