Finishing the Snomo-Job: Riding the 2018 Dirtbag Challenge on a Snowmobile-Powered Hardtail

Every stop sign is an opportunity to launch a little harder and let the two-stroke sing a little longer. Ed and his TL follow as I confuse commuters with my mutated-leaf-blower-on-crack exhaust note, my GPS giving instructions in my ear as we criss-cross the city. By the time we hit the Golden Gate bridge, my cheeks hurt from smiling.

Four Cylinders to Freedom: 2018 Honda CB650F ABS

The CB650F is a case study in how Honda’s bikes always seem to magically outperform their spec sheets.
