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.
I tried to stay out of all of the conversation about that now-infamous crash where a car swerved and hit two people on a motorcycle. I followed along as the comments climbed north of 4,000 between the initial post and news of the driver’s arrest. But this thing just keeps nagging at me.
The lights, the hype, the acclaim, the champagne and glad-handing. Like a royal birth, concept bikes are lauded as the next big thing when they’re introduced. Then the time for production comes, design doldrums are readily apparent, enthusiasm wanes, and reality sets in.
Honda’s made quite a few of my favorite cars. So I was stoked to see how far they’d come since the last Civic I’d driven; a ‘99 Si that of course ended up in a river at the hands of high school car enthusiasts. The 2015 Honda Civic SE is more advanced, but I don’t know about “better.”
Here’s video of an off-road racing truck stuck behind a slow-moving civilian truck, on a road in Mexico closed for the 2015 Baja 500. That bright orange machine piloted by Apdaly Lopez went on to win the race, after ramming this hapless driver out of the way.
In 2009, publisher Electronic Soft released BloodDeath, a blockbuster video game that won 306 “Best In Show” awards at E3 and went on to sell 3.2 million copies worldwide. In 2015, Electronic Soft released BloodDeath’s sequel, BloodDeath: DeathBlood. This is the story of DeathBlood’s path from announcement to release,…
There's no good motorcycle content anymore. That's a) partially my fault b) a damn shame and c) a great opportunity for an enterprising enthusiast. Here's how to do it, do it right and make money doing it.
Since news broke this morning that Mercedes-Benz will build a mid-sized pickup truck, every comment I've seen has been "WTF," "stupid status symbol," or "why wouldn't they sell this in America?!" If those was your instinctive reactions, here's why you're wrong.
Video games are changing. Increasingly, we're seeing a subset of players focus their attention on one single video game instead of many. League of Legends, World of Tanks. Games that change. Games that are constantly evolving. Games that shift and transform according to the needs of their user base. Today we look at…
The reaction to reviews of the new Ducati Scrambler has been…mixed. I think that's partially because us journalists have failed to do it justice and partially because the bike is very misunderstood. So I figured I should take a few minutes and explain it for you.
At every prodigal SUV and crossover launch this year I was told about the same things: "sportiness," and "car-like qualities." Now that we've seen the 2016 Audi Q7, I'm almost convinced automakers are going to make SUVs sleeker and sleeker until they just turn into wagons again.
I love Transformers. I don't mean the toys, the cartoons, the comics, any of that stuff. I mean the new Transformers, the Michael Bay Transformers.
I'm trying to buy a $2,000 truck on the other side of the country. This has proven an exceedingly difficult exercise, not only because the truck I want is hard to find... but nobody I talk to believes I'm for real.
After a series of heated emails, break-room fisticuffs, and one suspicious and threatening note stuck to a desk with a knife, we chose 12 of the best cars of 2013 that clocked in under $30k.
Like many of the millions of Americans who got Grand Theft Auto V on or soon after its Sept. 17 release, I spent much of that first weekend in Los Santos, the game's fictional mega-metropolis. Having bought, binged on, and beaten the game, I can mouth my own oohs and ahs.
Recently, Slate published an article entitled Down with Lifehacking, arguing that life hacking—our bread and butter around here—is just a time-wasting buzzword that doesn't make anyone's lives better. Obviously, we think differently.
With fantastic games on offer across just about every platform, with libraries that grow more accomplished with each passing day, you might think it's always a good time to buy new video game hardware, should you still be without one of the major systems. Mostly, you would be correct. But not this month.
Look closely at that image, Jalopnik. What you and I see there is a broken down, 1000$ (or less) rusted Pontiac Bonneville. They are looking at a Ferrari.
Over at The Truth About Cars, our resident scalawag Robert Farago's got a beef with choice (we hear he's got choice beef, too) namely that we've got entirely too much of it, and its keeping us from enjoying our car buying and ownership experience completely. His thesis is that most people don't want the kind of…
