Winner of the 2013 Best in Show Award
For 2013 the Killington Classic is hoping that a new venue provides a more relaxed feel for the event and gives riders a reason to linger in vendor areas, enjoying good food and taking in the scenery. The move is part of incremental improvements the Classic is making to build on last year’s ...  read article

Adventure Riding in New England
I just finished watching a 9 minute trailer of another epic motorcycle journey to South America. The video had the requisite stunning scenery, narrow, technical, boulder-mined roads and exotic people doing strange things in intriguing, but foreboding lands....  read article

Riders in the parade at the Killington Classic pass the Pico ski area
Standing in the parking lot at the top of Appalachian Gap on a warm Sunday afternoon, it isn’t hard to conclude that there are a lot of motorcycles riding around Vermont. A casual, “look-around-survey”, will likely show license plates from New Hampshire, New York, Massachusetts and Quebec. N...  read article
Car pulling out in front of motorcycle
The average motorcycle, ridden by a trained professional, on smooth , dry, clear pavement, on a sunny summer day, can go from 60 miles-per-hour to stopped in about 120 feet. That’s the length of two tractor trailer trucks, parked end-to-end. That is the best-case scenario. Your distance will...  read article
Rider heading out on the course
I got a chance to see this year’s MotoGiro USA in Cavendish Vermont, September 22-23rd. The event combines skills competitions with timed rides on public roads. The focus is more on precision than speed, but to win you need to be precise at a relatively high speed. Many of the com...  read article

Riders demo the Kawasaki Versys
This year was the 30th anniversary of Americade and I decided to celebrate by doing something I had never done before: staying in Lake George for the event. Living just two hours north of Lake George, I have always done Americade as a day trip, riding down and back the same day. L...  read article
Bikes outside the Gray Ghost Inn
Well organized is only one of the reasons that the Mothers for Daughters ride has grown from 88 riders five years ago to over 400 this year. The event is also fun and raises money for breast and ovarian cancer research -- a cause that has personally affected many of the participants....  read article
