Here are a few of the top stories from the past couple weeks:
The number of motorcycle thefts declined over the past year, with a slight drop of 1.5 percent from 2012 to 2013. However, California led the country with a total count of 6,637 reported motorcycle thefts. You can see a more thorough report here.
The California Highway Patrol is phasing out some of their BMW’s and replacing them with Harley-Davidsons. Officers will be riding custom-fitted 2013 Electra Glides, 121 of which have already been delivered.
For anyone interested in EnduroCross, spots are still available for the Sacramento Rookie Class that will be taking place on Friday, June 20th. The event is open to any riders who have not raced an EnduroCross event, and allows for all brands of motorcycles. Amateur, Vet and Women riders are welcome to participate. More information is available at Motorcycle USA.
And lastly, Cycle World offered a first look at the 2015 EBR 1190SX. Although details are still scarce, and MSRP is not yet set, Cycle World is guessing the bike will retail for somewhere between $16,995 and $17,995.
