Well ‘splitters, we’ve been at it for a full three months now. I made a bunch of ridiculous-ass claims when I first started about fixing motorcycle journalism and now you’ve gotten a taste of what life is like with me. How are we doing?
When the /DRIVE crew came to Europe to film their Germany/Spa special for NBC Sports, I met up with them at the Belgian racetrack to check out what happens at one of their shoots.
It’s pretty amazing what you can do with a cheap LED and a DSLR. Last weekend a friend visited and brought this beastly yellow machine, of course I couldn’t help but break out the tripod and snap a few shots.

When the Christmas book rankings were released in 2014, it came as a shock to many that a certain truck mechanic from Grimsby had outsold Hilary Clinton’s greatly anticipated memoir ‘Hard Choices’. Bookshops all across London were asking, “who is this Guy Martin?”, “where has he come from?” and, “was he the bloke on…
In less than the time required to catch up on a few Game of Thrones episodes, I went from my house to the location in the photo above. Sadly, this is the first time I've ever been there. Here are my thoughts on why it's worth getting off the couch and onto the road (or trail).

Today was a seemingly normal day in the automotive world. That was true, until Cadillac made a groundbreaking announcement.
A source in BMW management mentioned at the Rolex 24 at Daytona today that they have one piece of advice for new employees: "Don't do anything that would end up on Jalopnik."
Jalopnik's first European car meetup got Mr. Okulski behind the wheel of a heavily tuned Lotus Omega and Mr. Hardigree behind the wheel of a ZAZ, of all things. Here's all the action on video straight from the heart of Budapest.
I can tell you about the SR-71 Blackbird's titanium frame, its Pratt&Whitney J58-P4 engines, or its genesis. But that's not important. What really matters is the thrill of flying it in an extremely dangerous mission, as remembered by this pilot.—JD
The first video of the all new James Bond commissioned Aston Martin DB10 shows the vehicle beautifully singing out of neutral. The video is posted on the @seenthroughglass Instagram account, and is from the press event on December 4th for the 24th James Bond film, SPECTRE.

If you think about it, shoes are a lot like steering wheels. They are what connects us to our cars and how we get the necessary feedback to be a good driver. By that logic, we as enthusiasts should be spending out extra dough on nicer steering wheels and top tier footwear.
About a year ago my friend Kevin mentioned that he was thinking about getting a new car. He wasn't entirely sure what he wanted, all he knew was that the time for him to move on from his 2002 Nissan Sentra SE was approaching. Over the course of the next 12 months I would often discuss options with him, let him know…
