KAWASAKI H2 SX – QUICKLY AT FULL BLAST

Published by MOTORRADMAGAZIN - Clemens Kopecky at February 19, 2018 in Reviews
A motorcycle is only fast enough when you are standing in front of it and are afraid to get on. I personally am sincerely convinced of that. Because in addition to many practical, clever arguments, by means of which one tries to be convincing in a conversation with critics of the motorized two-wheeler, one particular property certainly makes motorcycles incredibly desirable to me: the sheer unreasonableness of their existence.

HONDA GOLD WING 2018 REVIEW – ON SHINY WINGS

Published by MOTORRADMAGAZIN at January 26, 2018 in Reviews
The Honda developers were not to be envied in the past. They built the most comfortable motorbike of all time and won many supporters - but also earned slander. The critics said, the Wing wasn’t a motorbike and instead of driving that, you could go by car. But most of that criticism came from bikers, who never sat on a Gold Wing before...

GIRLS JUST WANNA HAVE FUN PT. 1 - AND ALL OF A SUDDEN IT GOT CURVY

Published by RISER AMBASSADOR GINA DREWES at January 24, 2018 in Articles
When I inherited a HD Sportster XL 1200 built in 1997 2 years ago, I finally had a real hobby for the first time in my life. My new, old, well-kept treasure was usually moved straight ahead or at most maneuvered through long curves. The 'pretty Lola', as I call my Sporty is cumbersome and also I'm a chicken when it gets curvy.So it's time for a 'Face Your Fear' turn training and my 'therapist' and pacemaker Flo drives ahead with his Ducati Monster, which is faster and much more agile...

HOW RISER WILL GET YOU STARTED IN 2018

Published by RISER at January 15, 2018 in Articles
Before talking about 2018, we really gotta tell you something: When you launch an App, nobody tells you how to do it, what to expect and where to pay special attention. At least for us it was that way, it was a jump into cold water. One year later, you’d expect to be more prepared and cool about everything but: NO, we’re NOT! We do everything ourselves, inhouse...

THE WEISSBORN STORY EPISODE 6 - NEW YEAR IN NEPAL

Published by RISER at December 21, 2017 in Articles
Darkness. My hotel room in India on the border with Nepal. No window. Bleary-eyed, I glance out the door and walk towards the balcony. Outside the fog is still thick. Reducing visibility down to less than a few metres. One can only wait and see (or not see). I'm having a milk tea and some cigarettes at a street vendor. Slowly, I can feel the first rays of sunshine...

TRIUMPH TIGER 1200 - A TEST BY MOTORRADMAGAZIN

Published by CLEMENS KOPECKY, MOTORRADMAGAZIN at December 13, 2017 in Reviews
The dried-up river bed blurs in front of my burning eyes. Drops of sweat tickle on the scalp under my motocross helmet. Even the Gore-Tex membrane seems to have long since given up its mission of allowing water vapour to pass through to the outside of my riding suit. In the sauna, now would be the time to pour water onto the rocks. But it’s late autumn in southern Spain and I never thought I would get so sweaty when riding a motorcycle at just over ten degrees Celsius...
