    Here is Itchy Boot's first ride in South Africa. So far, so good. She sure managed to pack a lot of stuff on that little bike: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xdxq83940X8

    As I see it right now, her practical range is about 100 miles, before she will need to look for a gas station. Do you think she will find a gas station every 100 miles along dirt roads in SA? Noraly...

    Itchy Boots bought a used 2013 Honda CRF250L (see minute 8) that appears to be in good condition. I hope she finds a couple of gas cans to carry with her during her travels. I don't think those bikes...

    One thing I forgot to mention is that the article said that the Multistrada only got between 31 and 35 mpg - and that was likely using premium fuel. [:0]

    2021 Ducati Multistrada V4S review

    Here is a long article about the new Multistrada V4S, which now has a V4 engine with spring actuated valves instead of desmodromic valves. What is very impressive to me is that the first major...

    Discontinued motorcycles for 2021

    Some manufacturers are discontinuing their longtime models this year, perhaps because they don't want to upgrade the bikes to meet Euro 5 emission regulations. These models include the H-D Sportster...

    It was a sunny and relatively warm morning at Alice's Restaurant today. So this beautiful 1950's (I assume, not being a Corvette expert) Corvette showed up in the parking lot. [:)]

    I was impressed that the fuel tank didn't shrink and the price only went up $100. That is certainly not the trend with most new and revamped motorcycle models lately. I think Kawasaki made a lot of...

    You just can't keep a good turd down. Who needs a GS to get you around the world when a KLR will get you there too. Maybe a bit slower, but at least it can be fixed with a rock and screwdriver. I...
