October 23rd - 30th Edition.
What's Good in the world of motorcycling this week!?
Sad rumors continue to swirl regarding Kawasaki's venerable KLR650 platform. Reports suggest dealers have been informed that 2018 will be the final model year.
Electric motorcycle start-up Alta Motors has suspended operations, to conserve cash, as they seek investment. While upsetting, we'll probably see several groups of innovative EV manufacturers come and go as the industry matures.
On a more positive note, we're seeing tons of deals on great used & project bikes. Now's the time to find that winter basket case!
Keep an eye on Friday's forecast we might get smoked by some weather, and please don't forget to vote!
