"Lefty used to live on his Knuckle," a friend said to me, pointing across the parking lot at the 60-something white-bearded man in a leather jacket getting on his Street Glide. Lefty isn't his real name, obviously, but it's also not his real nickname, either.

Just read Kevin's TDC column "Motorcycle Language 101" (March). While I knew how to pronounce "Husqvarna" and "MV Agusta," the Italian engineers' names had me. I always knew I was mispronouncing them, so I have a strong notion that we Americans are somehow butchering the name Panigale.

No surprise that the $ 6,699 LT (for Light Touring) rides a lot like its Commander stablemate since they share the same platform. Easily detachable leather bags and copbike screen work with a higher handlebar to help make the LT better on the open road, and it's got the same great seat.

WHEN PICTURES of the Dragster first circulated, the bike's styling and fatter-than-usual rear tire made me think the new machine was philosophically similar to the Ducati Diavel. Not so. The MV Agusta Dragster is essentially a restyled Brutale, but the mechanical soul of the standard bike remains.

Mark Hoyer
Okay, so it’s a four-cylinder, but we punched out our 2004 MV Agusta Brutale 750 S long-term testbike to 800cc long before the recent displacement expansion of the big middleweight class. And our Brutale "800" was a scream to ride with its 113 hp, 53 pound-feet of output howling through gorgeous headers and Gianelli silencers.

Andrew Bornhop
It takes chutzpah to introduce a kickstart-only streetbike in the US market, but that's precisely what Yamaha has done with the narrow 384-pound SR400, a bike whose lineage traces back to the SR500 that made its US debut in 1978. Why 399cc?

Mark Hoyer
The Victory cruiser line's hallmark since the first model rolled off the line in 1998 has been its focus on performance, which makes the early-release 2015 Gunner a natural move as the company works to evolve its product line and fill the many stylistic niches in the laid-back V-twin world.

Kevin Cameron
Neil Keen, another of America's once-rich array of self-taught rider engineers, has died, age 79. At one point, keen had dirt-track racing at Ascot so nailed that he was untouchable for a year. In the '60s, moto-journalism tended to attribute success to hot blood and big balls, but everyone who was consistently successful had developed a technique that no one else had.

The past 25 years basically cover the entire length of cover subject Jay Leno's Tonight Show career. In 1989, Leno, pictured here with his Vincent Black Shadow, was just a Monday night fill-in for Johnny Carson, but it was immediately clear to us back then that the recently retired Tonight Show host was a complete and total motorcycle nut.

The rugged new MSR Xplorer Adventure riding jacket ($524.95) uses a "Dry-XC treated 600 D Nylon" exterior to fend off the rain while also utilizing Flashlite reflective paneling, D30 shock-absorbing armor, and six cinching outlets to increase airflow and funnel heat for excellent functionality.

Mark Hoyer
STOCK MIRRORS ON DUAL-SPORT and adventure bikes are typically exceedingly frail when taken into the wild. Tree whippings and tip-overs can destroy them in short order. Worse, if the mirror screws into the clutch or front-brake perch, a crash can break said perch, leaving your lever dangling and useless.

As Chazz Michael Michaels confessed in Blades of Glory, "The night is a very dark time for me." While that's true for everyone, it doesn't have to keep us from riding at night. In fact, thanks to your bike's lights, nighttime can actually make you more visible to car drivers than in the daytime-and there is often less traffic as well.

In case you hadn't noticed, adventure bikes have become almost as popular as Internet photos of Miley Cyrus doing things she'll probably regret years from now. And manufacturers have responded to that demand (uh, for adventure bikes, not MC photos) by producing more and better motorcycles designed for on-and off-road exploration.

The new 'Strom is a good value and nice streetbike that's great to travel on. My biggest gripe is that for a hard-core off-road adventurer like me, I need a machine with more dirt capability. The Suzuki is a handful on anything more gnarly than a hard-packed fire road, and the stock handlebar is too narrow and swept back, so I never felt in command of the bike.

When the R80 G/S was introduced in 1981, no one at BMW realized the full impact of what they had just done. We now think of that first G/S as the original adventure bike, but that term was not coined for quite a few years. Instead, most people back then had no idea why BMW would produce a large, heavy, shaft-drive, on-and off-road opposed twin in an era of lightweight, single-cylinder dual-purpose bikes.

While Special Edition models are commonplace among Euro manufacturers, the CBR1000RR SP is a rare treat from the Big Four. Sure, the SP lacks the cachet of classic homologation specials like the RC30 or Yamaha 0W01, but then again, not many enthusiasts had access to those exclusive models.

In the 15 years since we added Sport-Touring as an annual Ten Best category, a trend has developed. We started off on a light enough note, voting the 1999 Triumph Sprint ST as the year’s best back-road sport bagger and even picked the Ducati Multistrada 1000S as recently as 2005.

Q: I just bought a 2013 Harley-Davidson FLD Switchback one month ago, and it has 1,600 miles on it now. The only issue I have with it is a loud metallic "clunk" sound in the front suspension when I hit rough road surfaces. During my 1,000-mile service at the Harley dealer, I had them check it out.

My $1,500 Craigslist 2000 Yamaha YZF-R1 was sitting there in the Chuckwalla pits when somebody hurled an obscenity at it. "Man, that R1 is f-ked." Pardon me? "It's tucked! Look at it. At least a degree, maybe two." Oh, tucked. The speaker was Dave Ciesielski of USMegamax, who was working with the chassis on Evan Steel Performance's BMW S1000RR that day.

MotoGP is seeing big changes this year. The classes have been renamed. The top class is now called "Factory" and the supposedly simpler, cheaper bikes previously known as CRT (Claiming Rule Teams) have been given the "Open" designation.
