Ducati, known for its canyon carvers and track missiles, has released the DesertX; can it compete with the big guys in the adv-touring sandbox? Our travel feature is a ride through Wisconsin, while our vintage feature highlights the early Indian Scout and, more importantly, the Model 101. We delve into the world of riding jeans and discover why the safety ratings of riding gear are so confusing. Inspiration can come from many places, and Marco Luk began building custom motorcycles because of his skateboarding and punk rock heroes. Luk’s Shovelhead with Japanese influences is our custom feature. All this and so much more in this issue of Motorcycle Mojo magazine.
