    • Another great shot. So you get paid to ride the newest motorcycles? When I was a teen, that was my dream job. I bought every motorcycle mag and dreamed of being the guy on the bike.

      I actually prefer Lou Martin's shot because of the motion blur on the wheels. And I feel the bike pops more on the darker background.

      Somebody shot some stylin' photos of the LiveWire, but parked (source):

    • I have alot of the friends-experience opinion the HD Bagger is the best long mileage road bike out there. I seriously considered one except I really have such a distaste for the Harley chrome culture that comes with it. So, then, the Honda Goldwing also satisfies the long mileage best bike category but again, I could not live with myself being GW rider. I would say I don't care what people think of me and what I would ride but I must. LOL

    • Harley PR shots. coincidentally the owner of that site is the one that was holding me up on the street rod.

      Yeah the street rod is a much better photograph, but I dig the megamoto more.

    • Ahhh Gwasshopper. You will have truly reached the point of not caring what others think when you buy a KLR 650.

      As for best long distance tourer? BMW R1600GT gets my vote. That's not to say I don't dig a Road Glide too.

    • Mr Osborne has been producing killa images for Kiwi Rider since its early days. It's quite an oeuvre.
      And yep - I've been contributing words and photography to bike magazines in Australia and New Zealand for 18 years. I have tested about around 300 bikes in that time.

    • I was a 1st gen weestrom rider in Alaska 2006...now the have more street cred than a klr but back then we always ate with the ugly step children...lol

    • OK. Some of mine.

      It was too loud for my tastes but the build quality and paint was real craftsman.

      I did test a 100th Anniversary Chrome V-rod but the images are crud. This is the first one I have a decent shot of. Image quality has come a ways since '05 hey.

      These looked pretty good on a monitor back then. Today ... 2006 Street Rod

      2014 Night Rod.


      And now for something completely different. 2018 Street Rod 750. Waaay too big for it but I actually quite enjoyed this bike. Gave it a good thrash. All it needed was the big red shoes and nose to complete the look though.

      One from a ride coverage gig. You do realise that if I posted this on ADV it might break :-)

    You've been invited!
