    Well the day has finally arrived when WSDOT have issued the start day of the clearing of the Cascades. You don't need to be told, the snow is deep this year and avalanches areas are more extreme so the clearing is not going to be easy. The assessment was done last week and they will begin the...

I went to grope the new GSX-R1000R over the weekend, and totally fell in love with it. I've owned three Gixxers and loved all of them except for my...
