northern adventures

Around the time you’re reading this, my daughter, Emily, and I will be riding on the Dempster Highway to Inuvik, N.W.T., and then the Inuvik-Tuktoyaktuk Highway up to the Arctic Ocean. Tuk is one of the most popular destinations for adventure riders in Canada these days, after the permanent road opened up in the fall of 2017. Prior to the road opening, getting to the Arctic Ocean was possible only by ice road in the winter or by flying to Tuk in the summer. I’d like to have an extra two and half weeks available to ride all the way to Dawson City, Yukon, from my home in eastern Ontario and back, but I don’t. Instead, Emily and I will fly to Dawson City, where we’ll meet up with Lawrence Neyando from…

bmw motorrad concept r18

In May, BMW showed off a unique concept bike at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, held at the Grand Hotel Villa d’Este, on the shores of Italy’s Lake Como. The show, which features mostly historic vehicles, has been held since 2011. The Concept R18 is a long, low-slung custom bike with styling that harks back to the BMW R5 of 1936. All of the historic stylings are there: the twin downtube cradle frame, the exposed drive shaft, the rigid-look rear frame, the solo saddle. The spoked wheels measure 18 and 21 inches. The air-cooled boxer continues the historic theme, breathing through a pair of Solex carburetors. However, the 1,800 cc engine is an entirely new design, although it won’t likely reach production in its current form, given that emissions standards put to…

triumph dabbles with electricity

Triumph Motorcycles has announced it will be collaborating with Williams Advanced Engineering, Integral Powertrain Ltd.’s e-Drive division, and the University of Warwick on a project that will look into the future development of electric motorcycles. The two-year project will receive financial support from the U.K. government. “This new collaboration represents an exciting opportunity for Triumph and its partners to be leaders in the technology that will enable the electrification of motorcycles, [a direction that] is driven by customers striving to reduce their environmental impact,” says Nick Bloor, Triumph’s CEO. “Project Triumph TE-1 is one part of our electric motorcycle strategy, [which is] focused on delivering what riders want and expect from their Triumph, which is the perfect balance of handling, performance and usability.” Williams Advanced Engineering has considerable knowledge in the field…

bruce reeve 1957-2019

Bruce Reeve, former editor ofCycle Canada magazine, passed away on June 4. Reeve had been diagnosed with Stage 4 metastatic esophageal cancer last autumn. Reeve began working at the magazine in early 1982 as managing editor. When the magazine restructured in 1989, he was named editor – a post he retained for 15 years. Reeve left the magazine shortly after publisher Turbopress sold the title in 2004. He went on to work as a news editor for the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. and was in the process of taking on a new role as photo editor at the CBC when he took sick leave to treat the disease. Reeve is survived by his daughter, Oonagh, his son, James, and his wife, Kim Dolan. We offer our heartfelt condolences to his family, friends and…

harley closes kansas city plant

On May 28, workers at the Harley-Davidson plant in Kansas City punched their time cards for the last time as the plant closed for good at the end of the day. Harley announced in January 2018 that it would be shuttering the plant, so the closure came as no surprise to the 800 workers who were laid off. The plant, which opened in 1998, manufactured Sportsters and previous-generation Softails, and assembled street models from parts imported from India. Operations began winding down last August as the work schedule went to one shift from three. To compensate in part for the Kansas City factory’s closure, Harley invested US$150 million in its factory in York, Penn., where 450 new jobs will be created. In February, Harley put the 507,000-sq.-ft. factory in Kansas City…
