The January 2018 issue of Rider kicks off the New Year in a very special way with our First Ride on Honda’s all-new 2018 Gold Wing, which promises to really shake up the luxury-touring category with its full suite of modern electronics, reduced weight, sporty handling and thoroughly revised engine. We also gathered the latest crop of twin-cylinder Bobbers from Indian, Moto Guzzi and Triumph together for a fun three-bike shootout, and put Aprilia’s new larger Shiver 900 to the test. Fans of our touring stories will especially like Clement Salvadori’s ride in the Cascades and on the coast of Oregon, the Favorite Ride in Tennessee, and our profile of 'round-the-world traveler Rene Cormier that is a fascinating tale of independent global travel by motorcycle. The first of our reports on the 2018 models appear in this issue, and there are also plenty of gear tests, a Retrospective on the Honda CL77 Scrambler and the usual unusual musings from our discretionary tribe of indiscreet columnists. Enjoy the issue!
