Honda’s New Africa Twin: The Final Details Released

After what amounts to effectively a two-plus decade wait, the final announcement of the forthcoming Honda Africa Twin hit this weekend with less impact than I would have expected. It’s not because the new Twin isn’t a stunner on paper. If anything, I think most people are reserving their excitement for the day when these machines finally start rolling onto dealer floors.

Trevolta’s Crowd Funded Travel Site Announces the End

Some people likely saw this coming. I know many people wanted it to happen. Either way, it would seem that crowd funded travel has taken a hit as of late with Trevolta announcing the end of their services. You may remember our coverage of Trevolta in December of 2013 at the time of their launch. My op-ed about the acceptance of crowd funded travel stirred up a great deal of discussion, both for and against. The voices in the latter… read more »

We could go into those pros and cons until we’re blue in the face, but ultimately it all depends on a rider’s needs and how they fit into a particular style of travel. Straddling this fence as a clever alternative is the Caribou Commando Soft Bag system. Blending many of… read more »

Gear Scout: Garmin Epix GPS Watch

There are a number of contemporary products available today that would have defied the imaginations of the most creative science fictionists just a few years ago. I doubt Jules Verne or H.G. Wells could have dreamed of something as sophisticated as Garmin’s new Epix GPS watch. A marvel of futuristic technology, it is straight out of a bond film or comic book. In reality, the GPS watch is nothing new. I reviewed one of the first such wearables a few… read more »
