Motorcycle Review and Test Archive

Since the beginning of Canadian Biker’s journey back in 1980 we have ridden a lot of new machines for motorcycle reviews. That wasn’t always the case. In the early days it was often tough to land a brand new motorcycle from a manufacturer. The question who are you and what are you doing was a frequent response from national distributors with very few options for Canadian publications when we called to say we would like to do a motorcycle review of a bike in their line-up. But we persisted and eventually bikes would turn up at the office door or we would track one down for a bike review through a friendly dealer. By the mid-nineties we were lucky enough to be on the radar of all the major manufacturers and one or more of our writers would often be attending press events in exotic locales around the world. Below are some of the bikes we were fortunate enough to swing a leg over for a motorcycle review since 2007 along with the stories that accompanied the ride.
