“Why do you ride?” That’s a question that every motorcyclist has to answer at some point. The answers are as varied as they are clichéd.
When life handed me a crazy man’s custom bike, I made my own lemonade. You already know about my search for the perfect Bandit, there was a stop along that road which gave me a chance to ride the scariest machine I’ve ever been on.
The internet loves photos of passive-aggressive notes left for bad parkers, and now they get a two-for-one. After a cyclist posted a note for a “bike thief,” he received a succinct response from someone else with a Sharpie. Extra kudos for use of the word “bozo.”
"I've known crackheads who were less twitchy than that thing."
The letters HPV generally connote America's most often sexually-transmitted virus, but they can also mean something similarly unfortunate: Human-Powered Vehicles. A contest for the latter kind of HPV at Grove City College in Pennsylvania nearly ended in tragedy when this HPV from Olin College (clearly modeled after…
If you know your physics, you know the faster a flywheel spins, the more energy it stores. As that energy is released as torque, its speed reduces. Applying that principle, one engineering student slapped one on a bicycle as an energy booster.
Your bike is destroying your penis. Unless you are a woman. In which case it's destroying your vagina. There is a solution. But nobody wants to use it because it's embarrassing. It doesn't have to be. We're here to help.
Austin resident Adam Norwood awoke one morning earlier this month to find this baby owl perched atop the rear wheel of his bike. It was, he said, "definitely the best excuse I've ever had for being late to work."
I don't know what the bike is, but the car is no less than a BMW E30 with a Skyline GT-R RB26 swap doing a wicked burnout while being jumped. It's the kind of mad collision of disparately awesome factors that make life worth living and Baseketball such a surprisingly funny movie.
Chip Yates! The name oozes "adrenaline freak," doesn't it? Or maybe "a capella group alumni chairman." Regardless, the SWIGZ team's driver recently pushed a 241HP electric bike to 190MPH from a standing start in under 30 seconds—and strapped a camera to his helmet to prove it.
As hard as it is to believe, what you're looking at is a before and after. Because inside every cheap plastic lighter, there's a kickass mini motorcycle yearning for the open road. Here's how to set yours free.

Always wanted a classic Jaguar with a pre-pedestrian-safety leaper hood mascot, but never wanted to deal with constant electrical gremlins and leaky windows? Then the Jaguar motorcycle may be the vehicle for you. And don't worry; just like any pre-Tata Jag, this bike doesn't have an ounce of practicality either.
Travis Pastrana, rally driver and motorcycle stuntman extraordinaire, has completed the world's first Hydrojump. The stunt consisted of mooring a ramp 110 feet from the shore in five-foot deep water. He then raced his motocross bike at the water in excess of 70mph, keeping the power on as he went feet wet. This was…
As of October 1st, anyone caught doing 30mph over the speed limit in Florida faces vehicle confiscation, five to ten years in prison and a ten-year license suspension. Bill HB 137, which was signed into law earlier today, was originally targeted at motorcyclists, but was amended at the last minute to include all…
When we were at the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show and begged the higher ups to produce the Honda CB1100F, we never actually thought they would listen. Turns out the cries for a big standard did not fall on deaf ears as Hell For Leather is reporting the honchos at Honda will be putting the big bike on US show floors by 2009. A…
