The Gist

The new Street Triple (and likely Speed Triple, I'd imagine) for 2017 is a 765 instead of 675cc. It has a new display that's color-adjustable, adjustable riding modes, adjustable suspension and an optional shorty seat if you prefer. Good stuff!

Polaris shut down the Victory brand! Motus said they may approach Victory dealers to let them fill the void. Maybe Polaris could get Erik Buell on board as it'd be great to see a USA born sport bike.

Guest Interview

Feel free to visit Becky in the used vehicles building at Engelhart Motorsports in Madison, Wisconsin. Say hello or get that new shiny ride.

Updated Site Features And Developments

We fixed another weather page bug whereby the page kept reloading over and over again. Also, the hours were really weird due to a bug with timezone offsets. I needed to compensate for the server being in Los Angeles when comparing temperatures from our weather resource API.

We've added a login/logout link to the primary site navigation under members.

Probably the biggest update would be our decision to start sharing site profits in hopes of convincing fellow sport touring motorcycle enthusiasts to write about riding, i.e. submit new post content. Assuming we decide to publish your article, you keep 2/3 of your earnings. That's 2/3 of your affiliate commissions, 2/3 of your map sales and 2/3 of your percentage authorship in relation to our most recent inline advertising income (namely Adsense).

Listener Questions

Tom Burns of Chicago, Illinois asks: Do you guys use radar detectors? Do you have mounting suggestions for a Ninja 1000 with an adjustable windscreen?

Our response: Be patient and stare at your bike. Eventually you'll see that solution that's not only "perfect" but a creative talking piece as well. The fixes we thought of involve either a double ball mount or stealthily sneaking things in under the plastics using GoPro adhesive mounts.

Should you have any motorcycle-pertinent questions you'd like answered, email them via our contact form or by calling (224) 358-3010.
