New Models and Road Tests

With the constant growth of new bikes in this industry, Bikernet opened a testing/new model review lab. We now offer manufacturer road tests, reviews of new models and news about existing models on everything we can straddle from new Harley-Davidsons and Victorys to Steeds, Hard Bikes and Saxons. Since this is a Bikernet Internet endeavor we can take requests. If you want a review on a particular model, don't hesitate to ask. If you need specific info on a given model, let us know.

Let's rock 'n' roll, we're burnin' daylight.

Admittedly, this contraption looks more like a car or an autocycle than a motorcycle or even a trike.
