In a land known for literal road racing (for potatoes) and for long fought battles of religious and political differences comes a motorcycle PSA that will shock you.
When posting status updates on Facebook in regards to the new Yamaha YZF-R3, one friend asked a great question: "I still wanna know why they made it a 320 when it's supposed to be a lightweight class bike."
The question has been debated among riders ever since the first Can-Am Spyder rolled off the assembly line in 2007: is the Spyder a motorcycle? We may finally have an answer to that question. A bigger one still remains: will the Can-AM Spyder – and other vehicles like it – ever attract more than a fringe audience?
Something I've learned as a noob - you don't need a whole lot of money to get into motorcycling. And while many experienced riders will tell you that your first bike should be a used beater, there's a lot to be said for the benefits of new technology and engineering - and a warranty. If you're looking to buy your…
[After Anna's brother passed away she decided to do their dream road trip in memory of him. Buying her first bike, she headed out with little experience and little in her wallet to ride from her home in Virginia to Alaska and back. Read her first installment at the link below. On her journey home she got a job and…
"It's like the mule of the motorcycle world," said Jim Downs with Motostella, shortly after arriving in the desolate desert town of Pahrump, Nevada. Located in the off skirts of Las Vegas and Death Valley with tiny casinos scattered between stop lights, Pahrump was far from the wooden terrain I grew up in.
The former Marky Mark is the typical Boston tough guy and above all, a motorcycling enthusiast, so it's no wonder Indian Motorcycles chose him as their brand ambassador. The Pain and Gain star is now leading the new Indian Motorcycles clothing line campaign – the Mark Wahlberg Collection.
The venerable Wikipedia defines skijoring as a winter sport where a person on skis is pulled by a horse, a dog (or dogs) or a motor vehicle. Red Bull has been kind enough to give us a prime example of the awesome sport—and boy, do we want to see this in the next Olympics.
Imagine cruising down the highway, minding your own business when the alien from Predator just rockets down the highway on a mean looking moto as if it was just any other day.
John Ryland and his team at Classified Moto have produced another outstanding café racer by transforming an epic original "big four" superbike into a true-grit sportbike.
Today's digital, connected world is pretty amazing. We can hold phones that have the computing power of desktops from a few years ago, fully functioning accelerometers, augmented virtual reality, GPS, and oh yea, they still make phone calls.
Bringing back fond memories of an icon from an era gone by, Moto Guzzi has unveiled Moto Guzzi V7 Racer Verde Legnano Special Edition, which pays tribute to the 1971 Telaio Rosso Moto Guzzi V7 Sport. It was given the fancy name,"Verde Legnano," due to its lime green paint scheme.
Ugh. Just watch the video. The level of luck this guy has is astounding. I hope he went out and bought a crap ton of lottery tickets, because with luck like his, he'd win everything for like ever.
Yamaha just gave us another reason to love the 2015 Yamaha R1 and R1M: the online meter simulator. As if we needed anymore convincing.
When I decided to bring my old track bike back to race trim, the first order of business was the suspension. Many moons ago, I had the forks built up with GP Suspension internals and installed an Elka 3-way shock. The improvement in feedback and feel on the track was a revelation, and transformed a well-mannered…
Starting only 6 years ago, the One Motorcycle show has slowly been growing into one of the most popular and creative custom bikes shows in the country.
"You ride a Harley for the sound," my father would say to me when I was six, as he'd throttle the engine of his 1974 Kawasaki KZ 400.
In it's simplest design, suspension was not invented (on motorcycles or cars) for the sheer purpose of comfort, but more for safety and going fast. A mutual problem between all the big-named competitors—that is always improved, but never fully solved—is keeping the rubber on the road. A well functioning suspension…
When I first moved to the West Coast I worked at a dealership that sold popular European motorcycles as well as electric bikes—this was my first exposure to them. I then saw these bikes burning rubber while I worked as an AFM (amateur road racing club) turn worker. Right around that time, electric motorcycles were…
