The riding season has finally arrived, and with it comes the May 2017 issue of Mojo, featuring a sampling of 2017’s newest models, a selection of travel tails and, as always, a little bit of everything from the world of motorcycling.
Featured on the cover this month is Kawasaki’s new Ninja 650. It’s lost some heft, and gained an increased level of performance and refinement. Also, there’s a new contender in the lightweight class with the arrival of BMW’s G310R; does small displacement mean big compromises? Then we take our first ride aboard the Triumph Bobber, the latest addition to the 1200 cc Bonneville family.
This months travel features are all over the map; We’re hitting both coasts with a stop in New Brunswick for Atlanticade and a journey to the centre of Vancouver Island, B.C., with author Trevor Marc Hughes. Ron Keys does a tour of Tennessee and tangles with the Devil’s Triangle, while Editor Roberts is off to the Mojave Desert with our RawHyde contest winner for a week of adventure riding and training.
This month’s Legends series focuses on Nunavut, and in particular, Larry Simpson and his passion for motorcycling, even when in Canada’s Far North.
All this plus our regular columnists, Threads, Mojo Garage and much, much more in the May 2017 issue of Motorcycle Mojo Magazine.
