It was the best of times…

My father taught my brother and I to ride as kids. I remember crawling onto the R 80 RT that rarely left the garage (and I eventually rode from Tulsa to the Daytona 200 through both an ice storm and the “Dragon” at Deals Gap).

BMW Brings the Future to CES

GS owners rejoice - you can now send your bike to Starbucks to get your Flat White while you stay home in your flannel onesies arguing on the internet about motor oil! I kid. BMW Motorrad brought their gravity-defying, self-riding R 1200 GS to the Las Vegas geek bazaar (bizarre?) known as the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) and set it loose in a parking lot where it likely freaked out gamblers and partiers emerging bloodshot and bleary-eyed from 36-hour,...
