MOTORCYCLE REVIEW: 2010 Honda VT1300 Interstate

I’m a sportbike gal at heart but when I heard about Honda’s newest custom cruisers, the VT1300 line, I had to check them out. There are three bikes based on the same platform: The Sabre differs from the other two with its muscular styling, skinnier front tire and chromed engine; the Stateline and Interstate have blacked-out engines and a retro look with their deeply valanced fenders and wider handlebars.

MOTORCYCLE REVIEW: 2010 Honda Phantom: The Dark Shadow

For years, Honda’s Shadow line of cruiser motorcycles has offered riders a pleasing combination of comfortable ergonomics, lighter weight, adequate power and lower price point, and its popularity has proved that the bikes are anything but scary to legions of motorcyclists.

READER MOTORCYCLE REVIEW: 2008 Honda Shadow Spirit C2 750

I purchased my Honda Shadow Spirit with only 400 miles on it. I love this bike! The bike is approximately 600 pounds but is weighted very well. Before I purchased this bike, I was riding a Honda Shadow VLX 600, which was very top-heavy. I bought the Spirit with the red windshield, engine guard and saddlebags already on it.

READER MOTORCYCLE REVIEW: 2007 Yamaha 250, 2005 Harley-Davidson 883C and 2007 Harley-Davidson Sportster Nightster 1200

Bike No. 1 is a 2007 Yamaha V Star 250. This was my first bike. I bought it brand new expecting to ride it for several years. This is a great starter bike. It is lightweight and easy to handle. I did not feel intimidated learning on this bike. The ride was so smooth and easy (though I didnt realize this at the time), and I didnt know that a lot of the bumps on the road were even there.

MOTORCYCLE REVIEW: Honda Silver Wing, the Touring Scooter

My friends thought I was crazy when I told them I was going to ride a scooter to Las Vegas to attend my first scooter rally. “That will take forever!” and “You wont be able to take any stuff with you!” and “Youll get blown all over the road!” they said. Honda proves them all wrong with the Silver Wing rightfully touting it as a touring machine that just happens to be a scooter.

READER MOTORCYCLE REVIEW: 2008 Harley-Davidson Nightster 1200 1986 Honda Rebel

I own two motorcycles. The first one my husband and I purchased was a 2008 Harley-Davidson Nightster 1200. We bought this bike in May 2008 after I signed up to take the Riders Course, which I completed and passed in June 2008. I had never ridden a bike before this except on the back with my husband.
