Hero is an Indian motorcycle company. We're talking Bollywood Indian, not Burt Munro Indian. Here in North America, the average non-motorcyclist may not have heard of Hero. Hell, even the average motorcyclist may not have heard of Hero. In North America we think we know what big name motorcycle companies.

I got an email this week from Amazon. Two things struck me as odd about this. First off, I don't think I've ever gotten emails from Amazon before. Secondly, they sent me an email entirely about Harley-Davidson books. Quite strange. I'm not the biggest Harley-Davidsonista out there, I admire them as much and as little as I do every other brand, but I saw the coffee-table value in a couple of these books.

Have you ever been out riding and known you just weren't taking your motorcycle to its full potential? That was my first experience with the 2013 Harley-Davidson Breakout. I rode it in traffic from Deeley Harley-Davidson Canada in Concord to the Toronto core. I knew there was more to this heavy and incredibly well finished machine, but I just hadn't been able to properly unleash it yet.

The temperature was in the single digits celcius (around 48 degrees Fahrenheit). Despite it being June I put on my snow pants. Welcome to Canada, Breakout, time to have some fun together.
When I went to pick up the 2013 Harley-Davidson Breakout, I hadn't rode a 700 pound motorcycle since last season. I wonder if Kanishka Sonnadara knew I was a bit apprehensive as we climbed into his demo Nissan Juke NISMO. We met with Maria Diaz at Deeley Harley-Davidson Canada, signed our lives away, got a tour de bike, and got to work.
I'll be walking you through, day and night, life with the new 2013 Breakout. I tend to do some really stupid and pretty cool stuff, so you should probably follow along on Facebook or Twitter.
