I consider myself a reasonably tech-savvy middle-age guy. My cell phone takes pictures and plays music, and I can surf the Web and send e-mail. I text and send cutesy messages with photos. I have a Bluetooth earpiece. Everybody in my family of four has an overpowered computer with flat-screen monitors and wireless cable Internet. I travel with a pocket PC and keyboard. I'm lazy and use these devices to make my life easier. And ... [full story]

It's been a while since we've reviewed a Moto Guzzi motorcycle. Nearly six years, in fact. That, as the small but vocal cult of Moto Guzzi fans would no doubt tell us, is far too long. But that 2001 review was less than a ringing endorsement for the products of the oft-beleaguered brand. Reviewer Mark Rechtin noted his test bike arrived with flat tires, leaky fuel lines and gunky oil in the crankcase.   MOTO GUZZI ... [full story]

One million miles on a motorcycle? Do that math. That's 1 million motorcycle miles. At a thousand miles a week, that's a 20-year quest. Not many riders will ever approach this.   KING OF THE ALPS - John Hermann has ridden 1 million miles on BMW motorcycles. Behind him is a road sign from the highest road in Austria. CNS Photo by Scott Linnett. But John Hermann has the trophy from BMW of North America to verify ... [full story]

WASHINGTON - U.S. motorists have limited their driving habits for the first time in 26 years due in part to increasing fuel costs, USA Today reported.

The data indicated between 1980 and 2005, the average annual growth rate of miles traveled by ... [full story]

Which came first, the 40-foot, 17,000-pound travel trailer or the pickup to pull it? If you don't tow a race car or a boat the size of a small cruise ship or the Taj Mahal of travel trailers, the concept of a supersized pickup is unnecessary.   F-250 - With the right engine and body style, Ford's new Super Duty F-250 pickup can haul up 15,600 pounds. The highest tow rating is with the F-350 Dual ... [full story]

That's what those four-seaters can cost, give or take a couple thousand, by the time you get them optioned to your liking.   EOS HARDTOP - The Volkswagen Eos is one of the few retractable-hardtop cars that's a good coupe and a good convertible.

The Saab 9-3 SportCombi is a well-built European import that is inspiring to drive and treads lightly on the planet and your bank account. Its only fault is that it may leave too small of a footprint for a big family.   SAAB 9-3 SPORTCOMBI - The Saab 9-3 SportCombi has no rooftop luggage rails to betray the design. And the driving experience is light and lithe, anything but the perception of a wagon. CNS Photo ... [full story]

I had a rare Friday night off last week and was watching SPEED while waiting to see if qualifying at Texas was going to take place. During the evening, episodes of Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s program, "Back in the Day" were airing. It was the first time I had watched the show and I was only half paying attention but caught enough to notice that it was pretty entertaining. Near the end of one episode, a ... [full story]
