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."

Enterprises are universally struggling to understand where the new tools and methodologies of DevOps fit into their organizations, and are universally making the same mistakes.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...
