No two riders are the same. And no bike is right for all. We’re all different. Some more different than you’d think possible, but that’s another story... the point is, we all like different things, at times of our own choosing and in varying quantities. And so it is with motorcycles too. There simply isn’t an ultimate, unanimously accepted, perfect bike. Some of us like a motorcycle with lots of power, while others prefer big-miles comfort.

motorcycle sport & leisure’s contributors...

Roland Brown A bike journalist for more than 30 years, Roland has contributed to countless publications worldwide and authored a dozen books on bikes. He has tested machines ranging from Rossi’s YZR-M1 to a 1923 Douglas, but still can’t decide which type of bike he most enjoys riding.
