Cycle World Releases 39th Annual "Ten Best Bikes" List
IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Bonnier Motorcycle Group is proud to announce the 39th annual Cycle World Ten Best Bikes list. Cycle World, the world's largest motorcycle media brand, has handpicked the best 2014 motorcycles across all classes. The Cycle World Ten Best list is regarded as the industry standard for recognizing design, performance and value for motorcycles sold in the U.S. In creating the list, the Cycle World staff has reviewed countless motorcycle models from manufacturers around the globe. The 2014 Ten Best list demonstrates the rise of European motorcycle manufacturers, as seven of the top ten motorcycles hailed from Austria, Germany or Italy.
The coveted "Best Superbike" title went to Italian manufacturer Ducati for its 1199 Superleggera. German-based BMW placed multiple models on the list for the fourth consecutive year, including the "Sport Touring" category, which it took in each of those years. Closing out the European invasion was Austrian manufacturer KTM, emerging as the bike to beat in the "Dual-Sport/Enduro," "Open-Class Streetbike" and "Adventure Bike" categories. A notable non-European winner was the reborn American-made brand Indian with its Chief Classic, chosen as "Best Cruiser."

Everyone talks about continuous integration and continuous delivery but those are just two ends of the pipeline. In the middle of DevOps is continuous testing (CT), and many organizations are struggling to implement continuous testing effectively. After all, without continuous testing there is no delivery. And Lab-As-A-Service (LaaS) enhances the CT with dynamic on-demand self-serve test topologies. CT together with LAAS make a powerful combination that perfectly serves complex software developm...
