Being able to ride a motorcycle is one thing, but being able to ride it proficiently is another thing entirely. This is especially true when it comes to navigating corners during a street ride. Not only does the rider have to deal with the dynamics of the specific corner, but other things like road conditions and oncoming traffic are both important obstacles to consider.
In our last Top 10 list of 2016, we, the MO staff, mentioned how much we’re looking forward to flogging the crop of mini-adventure bikes that’ll be coming this way in 2017. In case you forgot, those bikes include the BMW G310GS, Honda CRF250L (and its higher-spec sibling, the CRF250L Rally), Kawasaki Versys-X 300, and Suzuki V-Strom 250.

If you’re a fan of 3D printing and motorcycles, we’ve found an ideal project for you. Designed and posted by Brett Turnage, these plans were developed for a bike-crazy friend and have been released into the wild on Pinshape.com, a 3D-Print file sharing site. Note, Turnage’s two bikes aren’t models to sit on shelves and look pretty. They will produce fully-functional radio-controlled (RC) motorcycles – complete with an animated rider that steers the bikes.
This job opportunity popped up on my radar this morning, and I gotta admit, had this job been available when I was a San Francisco resident I’d be all over this position. $15/hr plus tips, samples, and discounts, for doing nothing more than riding around one of the greatest moto-cities in America delivering legal weed?

MOrons know how much we love Honda’s Grom. After all, we modified one and then raced it with comical-but-smile-inducing results. Well, YouTube user Maximilian has performed a stunt that would earn him an honorary degree from MO University, if it existed and actually handed our degrees.
