A +GoPro on an SX racer's helmet is, in my opinion, about as good as motorcycle riding videos get! 

In this case, Ken Roczen gets a bad start, so watching him work through the field is simply awesome!

Hi friends: I'm new here, and quite frankly, haven't been on a Ducati since the mid 90's and my 900 SS. I'll be back soon though. The Hypermotard is next for me.

I'm coming off a Honda CBR1000RR and a although I LOVE the Panigales, I'm tired of sport bike ergos. Therein, the Hyper. :-)

My other bikes are a Kawi Concours 14, a KLX 400 and soon a KTM 690R.

Swapping motorcycles again: My DRZ400 will never be the bike I need for my "adventure riding." However, the #KTM 500EXC (or the 690R,) are perfect.

At least for the holidays, may we please put aside all the hate and vitriol?

My son is a crowd-funding/social media guru, but doing PURE good and without lining his pockets.

Thank you Paul for sharing what a wonderful thing your son is doing!!
I am a bit dumbfounded as I just happen to know of a person that is in need and is very deserving of help. I just can not believe you shared this, just as I was wondering how we as a family could better help this person.
We are looking into it right now and I thank you deeply for this!!! 

Honestly I am just stunned that we may have an answer!!

I fail the see the logic in building this Hesketh?

It's heavy, ill-handling and slow with dinosaur technology and, yet, exceedingly expensive. You could buy a Panigale and have enough leftover for a Hypermotard, CBR or other truly capable , modern  motorcycle. Seriously though, why bother building something that is obsolete as it hits the showroom floor? (Actually, I guess, I could ask Harley the same thing. I, however, clearly understand their logic: cash!)  ;-)

I guess, to each, his own. It all depends, perhaps, on whether you enjoy riding motorcycles more than just looking at them...

While riding California's Coastal Range and the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, I've passed several groups of 5 or 10 -- for lack of a better term -- "Hipster riders." (Looking much like the image below.)

My initial thought was "WTF??? Who are these guys on their shitty old motorcycles, riding 10MPH below the speed limit and all wearing helmets like I threw in the trash probably 20 years ago!" In each case I/we blew by them like they were parked. However, unlike Harley riders that often try to block you or flip you the middle finger, these riders all immediately moved over and waved me/us by. OK... that's cool.

Recently, at a coffee shop near me, I was sitting there in my leathers, when a group of these "Hipsters" rode up, grabbed coffee and, surprisingly, sat down right next me. I wasn't intimidated, a lot of riders, regardless of their platform sit and talk at coffee shops, but I really didn't know what to expect from these guys and girls, all probably 20 years younger than me. After exchanging pleasantries and short surface talk, several of the guys complemented me on my CBR1000RR and, interestingly, they knew at a glance, what year it was.

Of course, since these folks were all on 70's and 80's hardware, I also recognized the 70's Bonneville, a couple Honda CBs and even some old vintage 2-stroke Vespa.

Talk then turn to my bikes "in the day." I spoke of my Honda CR500, my Montesa, Husky and KTM MX bikes and my 1st Street Bike , a Kawasaki KZ900. And in every case, not only did these guys know my bikes, but they volunteered additional info on them, that I had long ago forgotten. I was quite impressed.

Well, of course, coffee/bench racing time had to come to an end, so all kind of spontaneously headed to the bikes. There, conversations resumed as these folks told me of mods to their bikes, engine rebuilds and the girl on the 2-stroke Vespa, spoke of the big bore kit and carb, she installed herself! These "Hipsters" were real riders and seriously knew their shit!

As I surveyed the old bikes and the mile wide chicken strips, I could see they were mostly novice riders, but nonetheless, I was left with a new appreciation of the "Hipster Motorcycle movement." In fact, their knowledge of bikes and some of their impressive DIY "mechanicing," reminded much of how I was when I was their age. :-)

Before I read this article I thought they we're a bunch of douche bags. Now I realized that I was the douche bag. I've had a change of heart. Thanks for writing that article.
