Motorcycle.Com Instagram Contest

May 02, 2017 - 9:24 AM - by Motorcycle.com





Quote:

In a previous era, the extent of social media was writing a letter to the editor or passing a magazine on to your buddy. Today there are numerous ways in which we can share our thoughts and experiences in real time over the internet. You’ve probably noticed near the top of each MO page are buttons to share the article on Facebook, Google+, and Twitter.

Today we are adding Instagram to the social media channels in which you can keep abreast of pretty much everything that’s going on at MO. To encourage you to follow us on Instagram, we’re going to give one lucky reader a $250 Amazon Gift Card!

All you have to do is post a picture of your motorcycle with the hashtag #MOMyRide (comment the make and model of your bike while you’re at it) and tag @motorcycle_com. Oh, and you’ll need to follow @motorcycle_com and 'like' this picture.

The contest starts today, May 1 and ends May 15 at 5 p.m. EST. You must have a public Instagram profile to enter, and it’s limited to U.S. and Canadian residents only. The winner will be notified via Direct Message and their motorcycle will be featured on our feed.

So, what are you waiting for? Enter now!

*This contest is in no way sponsored, administered, or associated with Instagram, Inc. By entering, entrants confirm that they are 18+ years of age, release Instagram of responsibility, and agree to Instagram’s terms of use.

What’s The Difference Between Rake And Trail?

Apr 28, 2017 - 8:53 AM - by Motorcycle.com


Quote:

Dear MOby,

So is it the rake or the trail that determines how fast or slow a bike steers? Lot of things I read and hear seem to use the two interchangeably at random? Which is it?

The 10 Most Reliable Motorcycle Companies

Apr 21, 2017 - 1:44 PM - by Motorcycle.com


Quote:

Here at Motorcycle.com we get to ride all of the newest, latest, and greatest motorcycles on the planet. However, more often than not, our time with each bike spans the course of weeks, maybe months (but definitely not years), as new bikes are constantly flowing through our proverbial garages, waiting to get tested. This means we have reviews of almost every motorcycle on the market, but it also means that we lack firsthand experience learning about long-term durability and maintenance. So, when our readers ask about the reliability of a certain make or model, it’s a difficult question to answer, as reliability testing requires ownership for several years – something we simply aren’t in a position to provide.

Thankfully, the folks at Consumer Reports have compiled a motorcycle reliability study, gathering information from more than 11,000 riders, sharing their experiences on more than 12,000 motorcycles purchased new between 2008 and 2014. With this data, CR adjusted for mileage ridden over a 12-month span and estimated failure rates. Like golf, the lower the number (or percentage, in this case), the better the score. CR’s language in the link above is vague, using words like “trouble prone” and not defining what constitutes a failure. Nonetheless, the results are still relevant. Here they are, from worst to best.

Ask MO Anything: Transverse or Longitudinal V-Twin?

Apr 12, 2017 - 12:11 PM - by Motorcycle.com


Quote:

Dear MOby,

Excuse the noob question, but what’s the difference between a transverse V-Twin and a longitudinal one, and what are the advantages of each?

Navigational Ade


Dear Ade,

It has to do with the orientation of the crankshaft. Any engine, be it a V-Twin, V-Four, or inline-Four, is considered to be “transverse” if its crankshaft lies perpendicular to the motorcycle’s wheels, i.e. across the frame, parallel to the axles. Most motorcycles have transversely mounted cranks, including all Harley-Davidson V-Twins, nearly all four-cylinder sportbikes like the Yamaha R1, Kawasaki ZX-10R, Aprilia RSV4, all Ducati V-Twins and V-Fours… including the Monster 797 pictured on the left, above.

Chain or belt drive to the bike’s rear wheel is simplest and lightest with this layout, and having the crankshaft spinning in the same plane as the rear wheel means power can be transferred through the gearbox and straight on into the
