S2 Episode 5: MOTO GUZZI STELVIO NTX & V7 RACER TEST


Just love how the guy who does the review for the Stelvio refers to it being a man’s bike and for guys….I say HA…grrls ride too…The Italians should let a grrl review this bike too…. ;-) Other than that he makes this bike workable as a heavy DS ADV sort of bike. Like the Racer too.

VANCOUVER Motorcycle Show @ Abbotsford, BC


January 19th, 2013

Cheryl and I rode out to the Vancouver Show Saturday to check out the latest and greatest.  Not that we haven’t been keeping an eye out for all these great bikes but seeing them in person is always a treat.  Riding out to the show we were confronted with our infamous FOG.  Cold out and frosty, this fog makes it almost impossible to see.  At times it freezes on your shield but the real nuisance is how the fog saturates your shield making you wish you actually had a wind shield wiper.  

Both Cheryl and I agree riding in this type of FOG is not fun and we would rather be poured on versus this crap. Having said that, there were pockets where the sun broke through and the glare off the wet roads was blinding.  Sun glasses came out, FOG rolled back in and it was like this to the show and back home.  We only live about 40 minutes away from Abbostford but riding in this stuff makes it seem further.  In the end worth it though, we get to park for free and right in front of the entrance.  Anyone driving a cage by the time we got there, around noon had to park FAR away and paid! ;-)
