    Avid Motorcyclist, Rush Drummer Neal Peart Dead

    Best Used Ducatis To Buy

    I can appreciate the beauty of many Ducati models, but the marque has never pulled at my heartstrings - meaning, there's never been a Ducati model I've really wanted to own. I rode the original Multistrada sometime around 2006 - 2007 and I liked it well enough. But not enough to buy one. The...

About us

  • Our board was born from an idea that motorcyclists of all shapes and sizes would want to congregate and chat, regardless of what they ride. Our board is both brand and style agnostic. Ride a cruiser? Join the fun! Sport bikes or adventure touring your thing? Jump right in. Not a rider but interested in learning more? This is the place for you. We welcome everyone from everywhere for spirited, lively and even critical discussion with a focus on things two-wheeled, and on other topics, too. While we may ride different brands and have differing opinions, our love of the motorcycle life binds us. We continue to work each day to make this the best motorcycle-focused chat board you’ll find anywhere.
