They weren’t going it alone what with their partnership with Benelli, and considering that they had already invested in manufacturing capabilities in Thailand the capital investment had already been made. Read more

I get that but they have been developing (w/ Benelli IIRC) a 338cc single for sale in the SE Asian markets. Certainly there is no way for them to be able to sell their full on monster cruisers in all but the wealthiest markets, but this was an oppo to expand their brand overseas where bike sales are still in the Read more

Since taking on the monumental task of restoring a van-based RV with my daughter, I have become much more aware of the idiosyncrasies of old vans styling. As our rig is based upon a 1-ton Chevy G30 chassis we have the longer wheelbase in addition to the dually axle in the rear and it is surprisingly stable although Read more

My wife’s brother was gay, died of AIDS back in 1995 before I met her. Their mom voted for trump and will vote for him again next month. For the man who would unflinchingly do everything in his power to undermine the life and love of her own son. Read more

For what appears to be a well setup legit off-roader I’d say $6k is fair money.  Nice Price and I can’t believe no one else seems to have noticed the tilt indicator below the stereo?  That along is worth a few bucks.

Are we not considering the possibility of keeping the Ronda for the daughter to drive on her own? Is an ‘08 Kia so far behind on safety tech that it is obsolete? I mean we’re not talking about a car from the 5mph bumper-era, this is a car with front and side airbags, crumple zones, probably ABS. No backup camera nor Read more

Replacing a cylinder head on a 1984 Chevy G30 van with a 6.2l diesel engine. Given the sheer bulk of the cast iron engine, removal of the head required someone in front and someone sitting in the passenger seat, and pulling it out through the “doghouse” into the cab and sending it off to a shop for a rebuild and check Read more

An 85 Lebaron convertible (non turbo sadly) was my first car in HS and while my friends were all driving Camaros and Mustangs, mine was the car we all piled in to on the weekend to cruise up and down Forest lane in the Dallas suburbs because of the drop top action. Heck we could all leap over the gunwales like action Read more

-‘76-’77 Harley XL1000, proper right side shift, no magneto, horsehoe oil tank and the best looking engine HD ever produced. I am a sucker for the torque and powerband of the 4-cam engine. I know its not the first choice for most but I have always loved Ironheads and I think this was the pinnacle of their species Read more

There is a gang of about 10-15 of these that ride around in Sarasota FL at around 2am (and probably St Pete but I don’t go up there at night) and frankly they look like they are having the time of their lives. But then again Sarasota is a circus city so that kind of makes sense. I love bombing around on my little Read more

People drive SxS’s all over the roads here in TN, typically on a motorcycle plate. Just gotta have lights and a tag. No reason why that wouldn’t apply to a Roxor.

This article falls into the grey area of detailed truck information and minuscule detail nitpicking, could be Torch or David Tracy authoring it.

Is anyone else getting a former railroad service truck vibe from that thing? I have an uncle who worked for Chesapeake his whole life and I recall as a kid back in the 70's him having a Ford truck with the rail rider attachments and tall skinny steelies that look a lot like these.

What I loved about living and driving in Houston was there is an interstate in literally every direction. Compare that to the St Pete Florida are where I live now and there is just 1, I-275 running North & South. Even Tampa only has 2. If the interstate is jammed, TS for you. In Houston there are so many alternate Read more

I say keep it on a shelf if for no better reason than as a conversation starter for other gearheads. Hell just this afternoon I found the head of a 10lb sledge hammer with no handle and tossed it in the back of my UTV. Maybe it’ll make a good anvil head. Who knows, who cares, its mine now.
