    I found it funny to discover how the motorcycle communities debate bike definitions (such as “dual-sport” and “adventure“) so fiercely. Heck, I was listening to one RevZilla podcast about small bike...

    Hondas are the quietest (at idle), but even they ramp up the noise to annoying levels when under load, for those of us without significant hearing loss, anyway. 8.5 years of 24/7 RV living—ask me how...
