Church Of MO Twin Touring Sportbikes

Sheesh, two motorcycle manufacturers shutting their doors in less than a month. First it was Victory, and now it's Buel... errr, EBR. Coincidentally, Buell got his time in the spotlight in last week's Church feature, and while we don't normally post consecutive Church features from the same...

Whoever said size matters clearly doesn't know what they are talking about. At least when it comes to motorcycles. The case in point is this Polini 910 Carena, the subject of this week's Church of MO feature. Still in existence today, Polini is an Italian company making miniature sportbikes —... 

While Ducati might get much of the glory for being the Italian brand with a mega naked-bike presence, one must not forget Cagiva. It's easy to do, Cagiva being an obscure brand and all, but what it showed in the Raptor was a bike that was so close to hitting the mark. It was a looker, had the... 

It's big, it's heavy, and it's undeniably BMW. In this week's Church of MO, we're going back to 1998 to see how Billy Bartels got along with BMW's autobahn burner, the K1200RS. Today the K bikes are known as sport-touring machines known more for their touring abilities, but capable of handling a...

This week on Church of MO, we turn the clock back to 1998 and the Yamaha TDM 850. Long before Yamaha's FZ-07 had the marketing department abuzz with the words "crossplane concept" in regards to its 270º firing order, the TDM 850 was already doing the same thing. In fact, it was doing it with... 

With the announcement of the new Honda CBR1000RR SP and SP2 at Intermot, as well as the standard CBR1000RR at EICMA 2016, we haven't been this excited about Honda's flagship literbike since, well, 2008, when the now outgoing model was first introduced to the world. So, for this Church of MO... 

Idle hands are the devil's workshop; idle lips are his mouthpiece. In those ancient days of MO, before the turn of the century, we were too damn busy to chisel down more than a few notes on our stone tablets at the launch of Ducati's first modern sport-touring motorcycle. That, or hackers, who...
