My name is Kevin, and I am an addict. A Ride-A-Holic. The idea of giving up my favorite thing in the world for months every year is more than I can bear. For many years, I was a seasonal rider, dutifully putting the bike in the corner of the garage as soon as the days began getting cooler. Stabilizer in the fuel, hook up the battery tender, and drop the cover on it. In hindsight, the cover was helping me deal with the shame of allowing the machine to sit. I didn't have to look directly at it. Not any more!
Now that the cold weather is setting in, many riders are already putting their bikes away until the spring. You don't have to, though - you can keep riding it! There are actually a lot of benefits to continuing to ride when the weather turns cold, and with a little preparation year round riding can be yours.
This year Indian Motorcycles unveiled a new addition to its stable, the Scout. Since its announcement I have been anxious to throw a leg over one and see if Indian, and parent company Polaris, can match the strength of the Chief (and Chieftain) release in the new model. Will they be able to produce another, from the ground up design with a similar level of quality and character?
Sloan’s in Murfreesboro recently hosted a couple of demo ride days and I was able take a spin on the new Scout and see if lightning could again strike twice. If you’re not familiar with the Scout, it’s a completely new, smaller, cruiser that slots in at the entry level point in Indian’s lineup.
Here's an interesting bit of news thanks to Motorcycledaily.com. It appears that Pierre Terblanche will be working with R E to develop a new chassis to go along with a new engine being developed at Enfield. Here's some of what Motorcycledaily.com had to say:
- Royal Enfield is also producing a new 400 cc engine, which will be a more modern, powerful design than its current air-cooled single. That new engine will need new chassis in which to reside. Enter Pierre Terblanche.

In the last race of the 2014 season, Marc Marquez once again takes the top place on the podium to win the race at Valencia, the championship for the season, and also breaks the all time record for single season wins which had been held by Mick Doohan. With Marquez's domination this season, the battle for second had become more and more interesting and was finally taken by Valentino Rossi as he placed second at Valencia which also put him in second in the overall standings for the season. Dani Pedrosa took the third position at the Valencia track but ended up fourth for the season behind Jorge Lorenzo despite Lorenzo not finishing at the last race of the season with only six laps completed.
