The Yamaha XT500 is widely considered as the Grand-pappy of the modern dual-sport. This late 70s enduro marked the point when scramblers went from being modded street bikes to purpose-built machines. (A few Paris-Dakar wins didn’t hurt its icon status either.)<p>These days, most XT500s are …

Prime Cut: Schlachtwerk trims the fat from the W650

The Kawasaki W650 is one of those bikes that respond well to a light makeover. You know the drill: a new tank and seat, and maybe a bikini fairing and clip-ons.
