Towing with a CVT?

My '05 cobalt is feeling it's age pretty badly so I've been looking around at what's available. It seems to me that a '15 or later Subaru Outback is a fantastic candidate. AWD, 25/32 mpg, #2700 tow rating, adult sized rear seats, and abundant cargo space. However, it's only available in the US as...

If anybody else has a similar trailer please post pictures of your set up.my plan was to get some boards and drill holes through them and us...

Engine Oils.. Wet clutch approved, what are you using ?

After rebuilding a couple you would understand why. So anyways, I have been using royal purple but at 17$ a litre Canadian even on my trx450r a...

Is it worth it?

So my buddy has 2 1989 LT250S's for sale. One needs swim farm bearings the other is all good both run good. My question is are these too old where I'm going to be dumping a lot of money into parts or are parts not too bad for these things. And if so what are they worth?

NEED HELP! 2001 400ex

When I rev it on start up it'll sometimes blow black smoke a little bit but then stops. It also ticks after I shut it off s...

Considering a new ADV bike

I've been really drawn to the Triumph Tiger at my local dealership. Electronic cruise control is a big ticket item for me. I was looking at the 800XCa, but I'm not thrilled with it being chain drive.
