I’ve never had an opportunity to check out the annual motorcycle shows that take place here in Vancouver and I sure as hell won’t have the honor of checking out the 2011 EICMA show in Milan this November. Just like with the major car shows, there are lots of surprises at the motorcycle shows as […]
Motorcycles & Bicycles
We love bikes and motorcycles – do you know why? They do more with less. Bikes and motorcycles have only two wheels, and yet they have all the speed and grace of their four-wheeled brothers in a smaller package. If it’s fast and runs on two wheels, you’ll probably read about it here.
