Lightweight adventure bikes are a hot ticket right now, so for the July 2018 issue we rounded up three top contenders, Kawasaki’s Versys-X 300, Royal Enfield’s Himalayan and BMW’s G 310 GS, and had three female test riders put them through their paces both on- and off-road for a thorough comparison. Looking for something a little bigger? We also flogged Ducati’s dirty Scrambler Desert Sled in the canyons and on dirt roads. Out and about, we paid a visit to Cerberus Moto to check out the DIY garage trend and turned some laps a little “slideways” at the Texas Tornado Boot Camp. Scratching that itch to hit the road, our touring stories include riding the Sturgis area before or after a certain rally, escaping to Washington state’s desert country and taking a loop around Lake Tahoe. Got gear? We do, with an extra helping in our Gear Lab section including kit from Shoei, Tour Master, Bridgestone, Sixs and Fly Street. Read our final Long Term Ride Report on our Honda Africa Twin, learn what golf and motorcycling have in common and get an education on required rider reading from our very own Renaissance Man; there’s a lot to see in this issue!
