50 States Ranked for Highest Motorcycle Ownership

As of the most recent report by the Department of Transportation, there were 8,410,255 motorcycles registered in the United States by private citizens and commercial organizations in 2011. To put this staggering number into perceptive, out of every 36 people you meet in the U.S., one of them probably has a motorcycle. For ranking purposes, we won’t be looking at total bikes in a state, but rather people per motorcycle (the lower the number, the more common bikes are). So what states in America have the most die-hard moto-enthusiasts?

New KLIM GEAR for WOMEN – Meet the ALTITUDE


Did KLIM do what many of ADV grrls in general wanted?  Thanks Colleen for pointing me to REVZILLA (look to your right and click on the RevZilla widget to check this suit out)  who has the new KLIM Altitude Gore Tex Suit for women on their website.  Due out March 1st, 2014, KLIM said they would introduce a suit for females, similar to the Misano Latitude and I have to admit this sure looks like it.  Will they add black as an option?  I can’t wait to try this on for size literally.  I bought my Traverse gear in 2010 and I am ready to have a suit that fits better.  Retail price on par with the guys…$569.99 for the jacket and $489.99 for pants.  Not cheap but it’s female KLIM gear!!!! ;-)  Thoughts????

1st Impression Visually of the new KTM 1190 R


Maybe it’s a grrl thing but when we buy bikes we have to really love them visually as well as mechanically.  On Saturday, Jan. 4th, 2014 I was heading out for a haircut and decided to stop at our local shop to take a look at the new KTM 1190 in person.  When KTM revealed this bike I thought to myself “OMG, what a sexy looking ADV bike”.  Immediately I was drawn to the new look, the lines and even the KTM colours.

When Wes isn’t cuddling Sean on a motorcycle, it’s my job. I recently putted a Honda Shadow around a parking lot at the veterans’ center long enough for the nice folks at the MSF to declare me fit to pilot a motorbike, but that hasn’t stopped me from riding as a passenger as often as I can.

Are you a NOOB?

Biker n00b: “Wait, you chose to wear a neon colored jacket?”

1. You choose your helmet based on your motorcycle.
You’d love to wear a full-face, but only if borrowing a friend’s Honda CBR600RR, otherwise you stick to your Bell Custom 500, no matter the riding conditions, when riding your Bonneville. Sure, the full-face is more comfortable and far safer, but what will people think?
