EXCLUSIVE RIDE VIDEO: Motorcyclist/Edelweiss Reader Tour

8 Naked Bikes + 7 Readers = 1 Excellent European Adventure!

So you want to know what it's like to work as a motojournalist for a few days, riding the latest bikes on the world's greatest roads? Once again this year, with a lot of help from Edelweiss Bike Travel, we gave seven lucky readers the opportunity to live their motojournalist dreams by joining us on a seven-day comparison test in Europe. Last year's reader tour featured adventure bikes in the Alps; this year we rounded up naked sportbikes and crafted a circuitous route through Germany, Austria, the Czech Republic, and Italy that combined everything from unlimited-speed autobahn to awe-inspiring Alpine passes, with the added bonus of BMW , KTM , and Ducati factory tours. For those of you who couldn't make the trip, we produced a video along the way—click here to see how much fun we had, and start making your own plans to join us next year!
