Just what every rider needs: MORE DISTRACTION!

This stupidity will likely kill motorcyclists! When you ride, you need to be in the moment, NOT chatting with the GF or listening to music, etc. Rider think and geek think are just so entirely diametrically opposed. Riders need 100% focus on the riding, not extraneous noise and interference! Although I could imagine myself wearing this in my cubicle, coding my C++, listening to Nirvana and completely disengaging from the entire office around me. And with the rear camera, I'd see the boss coming too.  Hmmm? Maybe there is an application for this?  lol

This is crazy DANGEROUS!!! What on earth were these people thinking???

And another example of why I'm not a photographer.  This is Moraine Lake in Banff, Alberta. It's a place I've been numerous times. But again, the images I captured there pale by comparison to this! 

Thank you, +jose luis canes for sharing this!
 
#Banff #National #Park . is Canada's oldest national park, established in 1885 in the Rocky Mountains. The park, located 110–180 km (68–112 mi) west of Calgary in the province of Alberta, encompasses 6,641 km2 (2,564 sq mil of mountainous terrain, with numerous glaciers and ice fields, dense coniferous forest, and alpine landscapes. The Icefields Parkway extends from Lake Louise, connecting to Jasper National Park in the north. Provincial forests and Yoho National Park are neighbours to the west, while Kootenay National Park is located to the south and Kananaskis Country to the southeast. The main commercial centre of the park is the town of Banff, in the Bow River valley.

This looks like an "adventure" bike I could own. Currently, credible details are pretty scarce, but assuming it has a 19" or larger front wheel, decent suspension travel and an above average (for a ADV bike) power-to-weight ratio, this could end up in my garage.

Fitted with knobbies and a high front fender, the #Honda Africa Twin could be a serious off-roader!

I'm hoping the mostly Euro, #WSBK  crowd at Laguna Seca this weekend will give #MotoAmerica  a fair chance. In (recent) past #MotoGP and WSBK events in the US, when the American (AMA) races take the track, the Euro crowd heads for the parking lot.

With MotoAmerica's Superbike/Super Stock format, on a short track like Laguna, it could make for some tighter racing and not a 2-bike, Graves Yamaha runaway. It will certainly be worth watching! Unfortunately though, the race won't air on mainstream US television for a week!? That means either live stream it at http://www.motortrendondemand.com/live/ or head to Laguna Seca. I'll be doing the latter.  :-)

Hey friends: If you know of anyone looking for a great Sport/Touring bike, please send them my way. I've got my 2011 Kawasaki Concours 14 on the block. 

I'd also consider trades for a serious dual-sport such as a KTM EXC or Husky 501...

Thank you.  :-)

This is a prime example of why I don't carry an SLR and photographic equipment when I motorcycle ride, hike or backpack. 

Pros like +Jeff Sullivan simply do it better than I do. The image below is a place in Yosemite I've been, and photographed, a thousand times. However, for the gazillion images I captured, not one came anywhere close to what Jeff has captured! 

Amazing shot, Jeff. Thank you for sharing!

+Motorcycle USA​'s specs are likely accurate. They're a credible bunch of folks. :-) Elsewhere, however, I've seen a lot of misinformation. Most notably, and most disappointing, was the Africa Twin's dry weight at 370 lbs. That seriously got my attention. In reality though, it seems to be over 500 lbs. For me that's a number better than many of the other ADV bikes, but still too heavy for trail/single-track riding. Oh well, we're getting there. ..

Great shot of my Panigale's bigger sister. 
I hope to ride a similar route next year. :-)
I've never ridden a superbike which makes so much fun in the mountains. Torque, power, agility, sound... a very big grin on my face after 300 kilometres.

Matt, in sales, helped immensely showing me the Ninja 1000, Z1000 and other possibilities as well. Very knowledgeable, friendly and a RIDER. Several other of my rider friends have purchased at Tracy Motorsports and have rave reviews of their service dept as well.
