What Motorcycle Will I Be Riding in 5 Years?

Yamaha MT-01

This question jumped into my mind at 5 AM. So much for getting any sleep tonight. Think about your motorcycle. Now think about your dream motorcycle. Now look back at your motorcycle. It's not your dream bike, is it? Maybe you don't even have a dream motorcycle. Maybe you have a list of a few you'd really. I know I do.

I've been riding for 6 years now. In that short time I've owned 11 motorcycles or scooters. I've owned everything from a stable of midsize cruises, to a heavily modified 1990 Honda Hawk GT650 N, to a couple two-stroke scooters. I'm still trying to get it right, but along the way I'm learning what I like, what I dislike, what I keep coming back to, and why.

The only question left for you and I now, reader, is what are we going to ride next?

Worth Cadenhead

One day, Worth "E.T." Cadenhead decided to follow us on Twitter. It must've been a really slow news day because I asked if he'd like to do an interview on the site.

Does Honda’s CBR-125R Sale Do More Harm Than Good?

KYMCO Quannon Naked 125i

Honda has dropped the price of the CBR-125R from $3,499 to $2,299. That's a $1,200 reduction that many Canadian would-be motorcycle enthusiasts are excited about. The 2012 Honda CBR-125R has come a long way from the first generation 2007 Honda CBR-125R we reviewed years ago. That was the same bike that my ex-girlfriend was ticketed on for doing 5 km/hr over the speed limit by Toronto Police. This new CBR has been redesigned, with a little more weight, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing on the highway, nor are the thicker tires.

While many will be welcome a lightweight and beginner-friendly motorcycle at a great pricepoint, we need to look at the vehicles that we aren't seeing, and that we likely won't be seeing in Canada any time soon, because of it. When it comes to the Canadian motorcycle industry, does Honda's CBR-125R do more harm than it does good?
