ROADTEST: 2019 Harley-Davidson FXDR 114

There’s been much web banter about this new bike and I agree that it’s the modern incarnation of the retired VRSC V-Rod.

ROAD TEST: 2018 Indian Scout Bobber Review

Minimalist Bike, Maximum Fun! By Ray Seidel*    With the end of WWII, servicemen came home with an eye for some fun & thrills, and sought out pre-war cars and/or cheap war surplus motorcycles; two different approaches to the same goal. Strip ‘em down, remove the chrome, bob or outright remove the fenders, and have a hot little number to tool ...
