Genevieve. regarding your editor response:
I like your viewpoint: "I don't think getting a bigger bike means you have "graduated" or that it proves you are a better rider." For some reason there is this unwritten notion that the better rider you become, the bigger more powerful motorcycle you should ride, or graduate to. I think this is worth exploring in an article. Thanks for the idea.
I think this would be a great article. Too many times, women, and men, think that bigger is better and with more experience bigger is the way to go. The "biggest" bikes I have are 1300cc and I don't feel any desire to go bigger. However, they are four cylinder. engines powering Yamaha FJR1300s (a 2005 and a 2014). The only V-twin that I own is a Moto Guzzi Stelvio 1200 NTX, which I consider to be a big bike. I currently own 13 bikes ranging in size from 250cc to 1300cc mixed between scooters and motorcycles. I've been riding for 20 years. The acquisition immediately prior to the new FJR was a 900cc Triumph America cruiser and it's one of my favorites as an all-arounder. I have more fun with smaller displacement, lighter weight, more fuel efficient bikes. I think I'm one of the few people on the planet who prefers sporting bikes over cruisers. Why limit yourself to a Harley/cruiser when there are so many great bikes out there? Which might be another article idea. Thanks for listening to my rambling.

Wondering if we're going to get any reviews on the new Indian! I would love to get one!

Thanks Deb. We will work on it.
I started riding motorcycles when I was 11 or 12 years old. I had a Harley 1200 XL Low until 2012 when I traded it in for a Can-Am Spyder trike. I love the Spyder because I am now in my 60s and I feel safer on three wheels. Wondered why you never write articles on the three-wheel motorcycles.

I'm glad you asked. We actually have a whole section dedicated to Can-Am Spyders, and I've reviewed them in the past. You can find that section at this link
. It's located under the Motorcycle Reviews link at the top of the page for future reference.
When you click on Motorcycle Reviews
you will also find sections on the trikes we have reviewed in the past, including those by Lehman and Roadsmith Trikes. Genevieve Schmitt, Editor
