Special guest David G.'s review of his Hyosung GV-250 (a.k.a. Hyosung Aquila 250 Review)
Say you are between 5' - 6'4" tall and are at least 16 years old, but, probably less than 75, and, you either want to learn to ride, start riding again, or just need a dependable commuter bike to save gas money. The Hyosung V-Twin Aquila GV250 is the Leatherman, or, red Swiss Army knife, of motorcycles - you definitely need one. I promise, you'll definitely use one, and, for some unknown reason, you will love it beyond any of its specifications, as it's so much more than your "first real motorcycle" or your "getting back in the saddle, now that the kids are grown" motorcycle. Every errand is another reason to make use of it.
What distinguishes a good t-shirt from a really great t-shirt? Is it the material used? The thread count? The stitching? The cut, fit, or shape? Is it the colour, it’s brightness, and how long it holds true? Is it the way you look in it or just the way you see yourself in it?

Have you ever been out riding and known you just weren't taking your motorcycle to its full potential? That was my first experience with the 2013 Harley-Davidson Breakout. I rode it in traffic from Deeley Harley-Davidson Canada in Concord to the Toronto core. I knew there was more to this heavy and incredibly well finished machine, but I just hadn't been able to properly unleash it yet.
Hunter S. Thompson said "Anything worth doing, is worth doing right." So I did. I waited until midnight. The night was cold. The temperature was in the single digits celcius (around 48 degrees Fahrenheit). Despite it being June I put on my snow pants. Welcome to Canada, Breakout, time to have some fun together.
When I went to pick up the 2013 Harley-Davidson Breakout, I hadn't rode a 700 pound motorcycle since last season. I wonder if Kanishka Sonnadara knew I was a bit apprehensive as we climbed into his demo Nissan Juke NISMO. We met with Maria Diaz at Deeley Harley-Davidson Canada, signed our lives away, got a tour de bike, and got to work.
I'll be walking you through, day and night, life with the new 2013 Breakout. I tend to do some really stupid and pretty cool stuff, so you should probably follow along on Facebook or Twitter.
