Depending on how sporty you like your touring bike, or how touring-oriented you like your sportbike, there is something for every taste these days. Which is the best? To answer that, we first spent some time hashing out here at MO what a "Sport-tourer" is. Does it mean factory hard bags?... 

I'm not looking to start an argument, but I'm pretty sure my next statement will light one off in, oh, about three milliseconds: The BMW R1200RT is the best all-around motorcycle on the road today.

Whenever you combine great roads with great friends and great motorcycles, the story usually writes itself. Sport-Touring is nothing new,... 

That cryptic message, accompanied by a goofy drawing of a little guy with a big nose peeking over a wall, has been spotted in every corner of the planet. But what does it mean and where does it come from? There are those who say an anonymous GI scrawled it on the bulkhead of a troopship bound... 

In the past decade the ADV segment has been a confusing amalgamation of differing interests, and over that time-period, two distinct groups have boiled to the surface. First there are the "Long Way Round" hopefuls, who invariably own a BMW R1200GS/A, and seem to be on some sort of perpetual...
