The Royal Enfield Himalayan is a retro-styled midsized modern classic capable of on and off-road adventure. It’s a great bike for a dirt rider looking to venture onto the street for the first time or a low cost option for a newer rider looking for a no frills do-it-all motorcycle.

Review: Dainese Tempest D-Dry Lady Jacket and Pants

All-weather protection while riding your motorcycle

10/7/2015, By Leigh McDaniel, WRN reader from Livingston, Montana
I was excited when asked to demo the Dainese Tempest D-Dry Lady jacket and pants — meaning they were specifically cut for women — because my first solo overnight trip was coming up and I knew it would be a great couple of days to try out some new gear. The Tempest D-Dry jacket and pants are intended for three-to-four-season touring.

MOTORCYCLE REVIEW WITH VIDEO: A 150cc Motorcycle That Can Go the Distance

CSC Motorcycle’s diminutive bike (that’s not a scooter)

3/6/2012, By Genevieve Schmitt, Editor
Pure fun—that’s how I describe my time test riding CSC Motorcycles’ 150cc bike. At first glance, you’d think the 240-pound two-wheeler is a scooter, but look again. It has a motorcycle-style frame (versus the step-through frame of a scooter) and a 5-speed manual transmission with a clutch that the rider must actuate to shift gears (versus the automatic transmission of a scooter).

MOTORCYCLE REVIEW: Roar WildKaT Customized to Size

Magical morphing motorcycle fits most riders

2/7/2011, By Pamela Collins
You know the drill. You see the motorcycle, you love its looks—it’s the bike of your dreams. Then you throw a leg over, and it’s just not right. The seat is too high, the pegs are too far forward, the handlebars too wide. Sure, you could change those items, adding even more money to the motorcycle’s price and leaving you with dust-gathering spare parts. If only, like Goldilocks, you could find the motorcycle that fits just right…

I missed the formal unveiling of Roar Motorcycle's WildKaT motorcycle, which took place during Daytona BikeWeek 2009. I had briefly stopped in at Roar the day it arrived, but the bike was in the back of the shop getting some tweaking, and I was heading home to Tampa.
