Ducati Desert Sled is a capable scrambler

The Ducati Desert Sled is the first of the modern scramblers that is actually a capable all-roader. Many riders criticise the current trend to retro scramblers as not being true to the traditions of a scrambler that is light, low and off-road capable. When Ducati introduce the Scramblers in 2015 they became an instant hit and are now the top-selling family in the Ducati fleet. There are now seven in the range, but there have been 13 different incarnations already.…

Not Much Doin’ in Esmont, Virginia – Fuzzygalore.com – Girlie Motorcycle Blog

Have you ever heard of Esmont, Virginia? I hadn’t until I found myself passing through on the way towards the tiny Rockfish post office. How had I even heard of that? Really, what’s a suburbanite from Long Island with no connection to Virginia and whose only recollection of The Waltons was, “Goodnight, Johnboy” doin’ knowin’ about such things? …the Rockfish post office. I mean, c’mon. Surely this space in my brain was meant for something greater like quantum physics, time…

TOUCH OF GOLD 2016 |

TOUCH OF GOLD 2016 I love Corvettes. It’s a passion that started when I was in high school and continues to this day. This is evidenced by all the useless Corvette facts rolling around in my head… the several trips I make each year to the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky (CLICK HERE to read about my recent visit.)… the countless hours I spend on-line, looking at Corvettes for sale across the country… a wall full of Corvette “junk”…

A Tale Of The Ultimate Motorcycle Commute

The commute was always the best part of my day, and then later on, the best part of my night: ripping on a deserted western Massachusetts road, cow pastures on both sides, that rich stink of manure coming in through the vents on my helmet. I would leave around four in the afternoon. That used to be my morning: wake up after 12, drink coffee on the sun-soaked porch, smack away the encroaching morning glories that were swallowing my house whole,…

2020 Husqvarna MX bikes break cover

In the yearly tradition that seems to happen earlier and earlier, the images of the new bikes from sister brands Husqvarna and KTM were released.  With most of the big changes happening for the 2019 model in the motocross range, the 2020 Husqvarnas  have only had a smattering of upgrades, and a bit of a cosmetic refresh – did someone say bold new graphics?! 2020 HUSQVARNA FOUR STROKES THE FC450 IS THE OPEN CLASS MONSTER – BUT CAN IT BRING…

What’s in A Name? Five Women Called Elizabeth Jansen

A recent social event included a few people I hadn’t met. “This is Liz Jansen,” said the host, introducing me to a woman sitting at the end of a sofa. “Ah, Jansen,” she said. “Danish!” “Right.” Names tell us much about a person. Or do they? Our parents name us at birth with expectations of how they see us and who we’ll become. It doesn’t take long before we pick up on that. Starting around age two, we perpetuate that…

Questions To Ask A Motorcycle Injury Lawyer After An Accident

Going on your motorcycle can be quite fun and a thrill. However fun it may be, though, there is no denying the fact that a motorcycle is more dangerous than a car. When you are on your motorbike, you do not have the full balance support that a four-wheeled vehicle can give you. Hence, you are more prone to meeting dangerous and potentially life-threatening accidents. If you’ve figured into a motorcycle accident, the best recourse that you can have is…

Northern Utah Loops

Northern Utah is an enticing mix of high country views, rugged mountains, intriguing history and fantastic roads. Photos by the author. I unfold a Utah map on my outdoor table at the Main Street Deli in Park City’s bustling downtown. After placing my gyro sandwich plate over the state’s southern half, I study the upper portion of the map. With my yellow highlighter, I carefully trace out my two enticingly twisty, yet distinctly different loop rides. One emanates southeast of…

Frank’s Yamaha WR250R Dyno Tuning Adventure — Dual Sport Alchemy

Contributing Writer: Frank Morton After much careful deliberation (meaning a long period of indecision) I decided to have my Yamaha WR250R dyno-tuned, so I scheduled an appointment. I learned a lot throughout the process, but the most important lessons I learned were: any moron can buy a dynamometer but that doesn’t necessarily mean he’s proficient with it, and sometimes numbers are just numbers. I should probably start at the beginning of the process, but I’m impatient, so here’s a printout…

Photo courtesy of Michelin and used with permission. First off and foremost I’d like to thank the folks at Michelin for sending me a set of new motorcycle tires for my 2014 Harley Davidson Ultra Limited. Obviously, my Harley Davidson doesn’t wear gym shoes. (I was trying to use some urban slang to connect with the hip people who read this blog.) Again, I’d like to thank the folks at Michelin for finding my blog in the ocean of motorcycle…

A New Direction for The Kneeslider

It’s been a while since I posted and I thought it was time to say a few words about what’s going on. Briefly, it’s a change of direction. I’ve spent so much time on my computer over the last 14 years with The Kneeslider and so little time in the garage that the need to make a change became overpowering. The last post I wrote, about fixing things, was a tiny hint of where I’m heading, but it’s really a…

The Quail Motorcycle Gathering 2019

Not only is Paulo Rosas the head honcho at the aesthetically pleasing moto gear brand Pagnol, but he is also a talented photographer that is always shooting away at every motorcycle show. Paulo is also a good friend of Pipeburn, so we hit him up for some photos of the Quail Gathering and were impressed when we saw the shots – he even wrote a few words to go with them. Enjoy… This year, I was hired as the Quail…

What Are Your Favorite Moto Sites? – The Motorcycle Obsession

The Motorcycle Obsession celebrated its one-year anniversary last month* and what an interesting year it’s been, with a fair few ups and downs. KEEP THE GOOD TIMES ROLLINGShow Some Love for The Motorcycle Obsession I think I have finally settled on the sort of thing I want TMO to be – conversational, storytelling, informative but not lecturing or wonky, welcoming, encouraging, and unafraid to acknowledge that motorcycles exist as one part of life (rather than all of it**) – but…

Don’t Be the Fool Who Tries to Represent Themselves in A Personal Injury Case

As a motorcycle accident and a personal injury attorney, I run across people all the time who just want to pick my brain for information thinking that they will try to handle their personal injury or motorcycle accident case without an attorney. I always think to myself, “what an idiot.” First off, I can pretty much tell when somebody wants to retain an attorney as opposed to when someone just wants to pick my brain for information. Let’s say you…

Suzuki GSX-R1000R + Arrow Pro Race Titanium –

Let’s begin with a big, fat Happy New Year to all 44Teefers, before moving on swiftly to more pressing matters; like binning the dustbin on our Suzuki GSX-R1000R longtermer. Remember this fine steed? It’s played second fiddle to work commitments in recent months (like Budget Bike Battles) but the first job of 2019 was to remove its standard can and source an aftermarket solution, and fit winter rubber.  Hunting horsey power by fitting a can on today’s superbikes is usually…

Friday MotoGP Summary at the French GP: Two Fast M’s, Saves Masking a Weakness, & Better Living Thru Ergonomics

The weather is a fickle mistress to motorcycle racing. The MotoGP riders have just spent two sessions in dry and relatively sunny conditions looking for the perfect setup, and all that work is likely to be wasted. Rain is expected overnight, and then all day on Saturday, starting from around 10am, just in time for FP3. Sunday looks like being damp, rather than wet, so even the setup found in what will probably be very wet conditions on Saturday will…

A Fine Way to Begin the Day

My reliable Vespa scooter stands ready to ride in the driveway. A New Day The light at dawn, I’m convinced, has a special power to renew and restore the spirit. Glow to gleam and on to dazzling light as I push the Vespa scooter into the driveway for a short ride to town. Sunbeams, medicine for the mind, food for the body, I stand a bit taller in the radiance that’s nature’s gift to humanity. A simple event. A fine…
