Jonathan Rea Makes It Three In A Row With Victory In France

  • By cannonball

Externally, these championships have looked almost casual, without the ups and downs experienced by Rea’s hard-riding teammate, 2013 series champ Tom Sykes.
This has a mysterious aspect for, before coming to Kawasaki, Rea had looked “stuck” on a not-quite-factory Ten Kate Honda. How could the mutual adaptation of Rea and the Kawasaki have been so easy?

Will Autonomous Car Tech Help Drivers See Motorcyclists On The Road?

  • By cannonball

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 54 percent of fatal motorcycle accidents involve collisions with other vehicles—which most of the time are at fault. Perhaps that’s because traditionally, avoiding motorcyclists has been done old-school, requiring drivers to take care and watch out—a seeming rarity on today’s roads. Fortunately, though, drivers now have help available, as carmakers are beginning to embed automated accident-avoidance technology into their vehicles.

We hope so!

  • By cannonball

John Joss flits around the San Mateo International Motorcycle Show like a butterfly on steroids, checking in with old friends and easily making new ones. He’s a small-framed man, physically fit and mentally sharp, an Englishman who has lived in northern California for the last 40 years. His VFR800 sits in the parking lot and he’s only got a few hours to spend at the show before meeting his buddies for a ride up to Alice’s Restaurant.

For the race fan taken with today’s modern, flouro-Technicolor schemes, these five graphics packages are sure to please.
