MotoSport has been putting out some great videos over the last year or two, and their latest “Goodwill Hunting Dual Sport Tour” video is a great one.
Adventure bikes. Sport bikes. Cruiser. Dual Sports. Dirt Bikes. Supermotos. These are just some of the many terms we use when describing the bikes we ride. For the uninitiated, that can all be a bit confusing and likely feel a bit unfriendly - but we’re here to change all of that.
As anyone reading this knows by now, I was let go from Gawker Media. Here’s what I can tell you.
We knew this day was coming, but that doesn’t mean we should be any less excited it’s finally here. Yamaha has pulled the wraps off the Tracer 700, a new upright sport-touring bike based off the FZ-07 naked bike we’ve all come to love.
There isn’t a true dual sport to be found anywhere in any motorcycle manufacturers lineup. The European options are too expensive, require expensive and frequent maintenance, and offer more performance than most people need. The Japanese options are either boring or too big and heavy, which is why one guy made his own…
Hard enduro riding is one of the craziest things you’ll ever see someone do on a motorcycle. It looks at things us mere mortals think are impossible and rides right over the top of them. Hard enduro contests get a bunch of these crazies together, try and find stuff even they can’t ride over, and then make it a race.…
Motorcycles are one of the best things to ever happen to me. They’ve brought more fun, passion, people, interest, experiences, and growth into my life than a lot of things, and I bet many of you would say the same. But they’re worth different amounts to different people—and it’s time to stop letting that divide us.
Motorcyclists are an odd bunch, and no issue is more divisive amongst us than gear—especially when it comes to anything less than ATGATT. Obviously, impact resistance is the most important in protecting us from serious or catastrophic injury, but abrasion resistance is required in a much higher percentage of offs. So…
Kawasaki put the world on notice last October when they announced a major refresh to the ZX-10R superbike, which it claimed would make a whopping 207 horsepower and have an industry-leading electronics package. At the Sepang Circuit in Malaysia I worried I’d kill myself on it. Turns out I didn’t have much to worry…
The Superprestigio of the Americas race pit some of the country’s top racers from all disciplines against each other in America’s original form of racing: flat track. Then they let a bunch of goofballs on cruisers loose to slide their way round the track.
The all new Honda Africa Twin is the most exciting bike to come from Honda in over a decade. With the adventure market taking off in recent years Honda went back to their roots, making massive claims about this new thing being something truly honoring of the bike that put them on the (off-road) map. Something, they…
As motorcyclists, we’re taught to love grip and to think of what we do on the bike in terms of available traction. But, as we’ve seen MotoGP, Supercross, and stunt riders prove, learning to not be afraid of sliding can help us ride safer and faster.
Buying a motorcycle helmet is a very tricky process. Most helmets are impossible to find if you want to try them on, plus everything fits differently, and most of the descriptions provided by helmet-makers are indecipherable and incoherent. Luckily for you, I get to try a lot of them out firsthand—and I’m here to help.
We’ve seen a few renderings and bits to make the 2015 Chevy Colorado a little more exciting, but this “400 horsepower” supercharged desert toy is my favorite modified version of the mid-sized truck so far.
Ever wonder why you still see police officers on big Harley-Davidson bikes? If you consider this test data from the Michigan State Police, you’ll wonder even more. Their annual study once again shows that Harleys, fun as they are in their own way, just aren’t as suited to cop bike duty as other models.
In October 2016, women from all over the world will drive SUVs, pickup trucks and crossovers across the southwest in a ten-day off-road navigation challenge called the Rebelle Rally. Ready to watch the glass ceiling get smashed with sand tires?
Do you watch MotoGP, the world’s top form of motorcycle racing? If the answer’s no, let me tell you why this coming season will be the best one to start on in many years. All it took was a few rule changes that should make the sport more open and more exciting than it’s been in a while, and since it already kicked…
Okay, so most of these car/motorcycle/track videos are complete and utter bullshit, but I think Michelin nailed it with this one. Because porn is always the answer.
