Rider Magazine  |  October 2017  


If you have half as much fun reading the October 2017 issue of Rider as we had creating the content, they may have to lock you up for excessive enjoyment. We kick things off with a full test of Yamaha’s new Star Venture, which puts traditional V-twin power at the heart of a modern luxury tourer. This month’s comparison test is a multi-day ride from the mountains to the coast on the 2017 Ducati Multistrada 950, Kawasaki Versys 100 LT and 2018 Suzuki V-Strom 1000, and there’s more new hardware from Harley-Davidson—10 all-new Softails that promise big improvements to the cruiser experience. One of our Northwestern contributors tells us what it’s like to ride State Route 20 across bucolic Washington State, and we also go down south for a Favorite Ride in Cajun country. You’ll also come with us on Rider’s Camping Challenge, a great guide to roughing it with fun tips and tricks from Rider’s motorcycle campers, and get more tips on riding with a passenger and Stayin’ Safe in Tips, Tricks & Answers. As usual Gearlab is packed with accessory tests, and—you are so lucky!—our columnists went all out and made their deadlines once again. Their thoughts are worth the meager price of admission alone. But don’t take my word for it…see for yourself!
