March 3, 2014

Power tripping on the 2014 Ducati Diavel Strada and Star Vmax. Without a doubt, the Ducati Diavel and Star Vmax are two of the meanest, most rambunctious motorcycles in production.

BMW’s big GS had a cult following, but liter-class dual-sports hadn’t yet caught on here in the U.S. With a retuned version of the 996cc, 90-degree V-twin from the TL1000S sportbike,... Read more »

Year/Model: 1972 Bultaco Montadero Mark II 360; Owner: Bob Reichenberg, Jefferson, Oregon.
