The best decade for motorcycling is... this one

The best decade for motorcycling is... this one | Motorcycles | Scoop.it
Forget the 70s, 80s and 90s, today is the heyday of motorcycling
SF Moto's insight:

Ah, nostalgia...

This article does a great job pointing out that when it comes to nostalgia for bikers, we tend to confuse the joy of owning, maintaining, and riding older bikes today with actually being a biker in those years gone by. We're grateful to be riding now, at a time with paramount technology, bike selection, performance,  safety, and pretty much everything else is better.

How To Pick A Second Bike

How To Pick A Second Bike | Motorcycles | Scoop.it
TweetThere comes a time in every rider’s life when loving one motorcycle just isn’t enough anymore. A second — or even a third or fourth or fifteenth — is needed, just so we can feel whole. But, which one should you get?
SF Moto's insight:

If you've reached the point where having just one motorcycle isn't enough and you're looking into getting a second bike, there are a few things to consider while making your selection. A good place to start is by identifying what your current bike can't do. Purchasing a second bike is a good time to buy that bike you've been dreaming about to fulfill your heart's desire, especially if your current bike is mainly used for daily riding or commuting. Perhaps you'd like to start riding off-road with a dual sport, or maybe you'd like to do some distance riding with a tourer or sport tourer. The options are endless!
