March Rider issue packed full of informative road tests, engaging travel stories and some great tips and tricks. For the cover story we traveled to the remote Canary island of Fuerteventura to ride Ducati’s new middleweight Multistrada 950, but our full test of Kawasaki’s new Z650 took place right here in the mountains and on the highways of California. In any case, Urs “Grizzly” Pedraita has the rest of the world covered on his record-setting ride around the world the long way, on a Victory Country no less—we have his first U.S. print interview. Toured the American Midwest, Great Smoky Mountains and Italy’s charming Old World island of Sicily for this issue, and our In Focus section has a useful story about choosing riding apparel. There’s more useful how-to info, too, along with scads of gear tests, our semi-annual Guide to International Touring Companies and the usual banter and highfalutin opinions from our columnists.
