Every motorcycle should be set up properly for the rider.

What does that mean, exactly? There are a lot of tweaks and adjustments you can make so the bike fits you right. New bikes don’t just roll out of the crate ready to sell, so the dealer makes the final adjustments and, in some cases, has to install items like wheels, handlebars, seats, and mirrors. Nowadays, some of these items come with marks on them to aid dealers in setup: match up the marks and they are “ready to go.” Or are they? Those marks are just a middle-of-the-range best guess. And what if you're buying a new-to-you used bike? Do you know how the previous owner adjusted it?

The reality is that bikes have many adjustment points. You should know what they are and how to adjust them to make yourself more comfortable and give you the best possible control.

After the next 2 minutes, you'll understand why each Akrapovic exhaust is nothing short of perfection.

“No brakes! No brakes!” I scream, bracing for the worst and hoping I can avoid launching my motorcycle into the lake.

I am running out of pavement fast, headed down the boat ramp aboard my Kawasaki Ninja 650R. What seemed at first like a rather ingenious attempt to help me break a bad habit wasn't turning out the way either of us expected when my impromptu coach removed my front brake lever — and then my rear brake failed me, too.

When I got the assignment to ride the new Suzuki GSX-R1000 at Circuit of the Americas after the MotoGP weekend, I immediately twigged to the fact that it coincided with the Handbuilt Motorcycle Show.

Except for those who ride both, I get the feeling that most motorcyclists don’t feel much of a connection with bicyclists. As Nicky Hayden – most recently a bicyclist – lies in an Italian hospital, I’ve been thinking a lot about how that doesn’t feel right.

It’s not just the difference between leather and spandex, or getting there by internal combustion or sweat equity. People come to riding bicycles and motorcycles by different routes, in our wealthy country, where neither is most people’s first choice as transportation. And yet we have important things in common.

Ape hanger handlebars are a lot like black licorice.

Most people love ‘em or hate ‘em, and there are precious few folks who are ambivalent. I’ve written about handlebars for Harleys before, but I didn’t concentrate on what is arguably the most recognizable form of aftermarket handlebar: the ape hanger, aka monkey bar. Being a dirtbag chopper guy, I get lots of looks and plenty of attention when I ride one of my machines that sports a set, so I thought an article explaining them might be helpful for the uninitiated.

Consistency is important when mixing concrete. Durable, dependable and consistent, it’s no surprise that concrete is the family business that has always been in the background of Ryan Dungey’s motorcycle racing career.
