In this mad issue, we bring the Ducati Panigale V4 and the Desmosedici RR to create one incredible story. We also sampled the Speed Twin in sunny Spain and came back tripping on this clever alliteration, sorry iteration, of the Triumph Bonneville. Back home we try to figure out which bike is best for what kind of motorcycle tourer, and go dirty dancing with the Triumph Tiger 800 XCx. Meanwhile two of our boys have a mother of fight trying to decide whether girls dig biker boys or would rather go scooting around this V-Day. Plus there’s all the action from Dakar 2019. And we keep PEDDLIN’ on as we explore what’s a good bicycle for a beginner and how you should go cycle shopping. All this, and much more in the pages of our magazine.
