November’s Readers Rides: Paul and Debz

November’s Readers Rides: Paul and Debz

Paul

This is a correction from our printed November issue.

Our sincerest apologies to Paul.

At 7yrs old, Paul’s family moved to Sundridge Ontario.  The neighbours kids next door had come over to say hello and they brought along with them their Honda Z50’s.  Seeing the Hondas,  Paul knew this was something he wanted to try out.  Also, down the street,  a friendly older couple had this moped.  Getting to know them well, they allowed Paul to ride the moped pretty much whenever...

2010 Yamaha WR250X

2010 Yamaha WR250X

Story by Mr. Lee and photos by Yamaha

The 2010 WR250X small, light and a great all-rounder. With light weight, excellent handling and build quality, this versatile supermoto has more than meets the eye with its White/Red color scheme. Very appropriate on or off-road, a superb bike in the hands of a new rider or seasoned veteran.

A 250cc liquid-cooled DOHC four-stroke; four-valves, single-cylinder engine is fuel-injected, with an intake air pressure sensor and throttle position sensor for great throttle response as...

I am Woman, Hear me ROAR!

Story by Kelly Gibson

I often hear, or rather feel, this sentiment from a lot of female riders. It’s true, as the underdog in a male dominated sport, us women struggle to be heard. We face different challenges that range from finding gear that fits to being taken seriously. But if you ask me, women who ride sometimes fall pretty to the pigeonholes we place ourselves in, and then shout to be heard out there.

Like many things in life, becoming a...

What Women Want

What Women Want

Story by Kelly Gibson . Photos provided by ICON

If there’s one thing that binds us all together as female riders, it’s our lack of gear choices, perceived or real. Ask any female rider around and she’ll tell you she can’t find gear to fit her. Worse than that, she’ll tell you, that when you she does find gear that fits, it’s annoyingly pink, or baby blue, or has tassles. But like any rising group within a community, as we grow,...

Single Age: 52 My older brother always rode a bike, then my sister started riding, so I thought I’d follow along and got a 72 Honda CB 100. That was the first motorized vehicle owned at 16 years old.  I love riding for the people you meet, and the code of the road. I now own the very first Aprilia, which was flown across Europe, to a dealership that was also the first to have Aprilias in Canada. My second bike was...

Full of Sound and Fury – Honda Fury

Full of Sound and Fury – Honda Fury

Story By Steve Villamarin – Photos provided by Dops64

No other quote extracted from Hollywood defines the true difference between a motorcycle and a chopper than this quote from Pulp Fiction: Fabienne: “- whose motorcycle is this? Butch: -It’s a chopper baby Fabienne: -whose chopper is this?…”

It’s not a motorcycle… it’s a chopper. In this case the chopper is the new Honda Fury. It seems that these recent years bike companies have finally given their designers a green light to build something “kewl”...

2010 GSX-R 750 – The Middleweight Champion

2010 GSX-R 750 – The Middleweight Champion

Story By Mr. Lee – Photos provided by Suzuki

A diamond in the rough amongst Suzuki’s GSX-R series, the Suzuki GSX-R 750 sits nicely between the 600 and the 1000 GSX-R’s, making for best of both worlds.

The GSX-R 750, middleweight perfection, is still on the line up from Suzuki in 2010. With a mildly successful production since 1985, the GSX-R 750 has always been one of a handful of middleweight machines not often produced by any other manufacturer. Suzuki in keeping...

July’s Readers Ride: Elise and Wally

Elise

What really got me into riding was the rivalry between my next door neighbor and I. We are the same age and grew up together. Every time one of us did something, usually the other followed or tried to outdo somehow. He got two dirt bikes one summer. The same summer I got my first dirt bike a YZ125 (he had the TTR225 ).

I like how riding can be both social and independent. Going out and meeting new people...
