BMW’s late-80s king of the high-speed sports-touring bikes, the K1, is the most rad of all the motorrad. This one, with a giant rectangular headlamp, ABS, and a ketchup-and-mustard paint job, is the embodiment of rad motorcycles. Ya dig?
The Triumph Thruxton proves that you don’t need the prerequisite number of wheels (four) to drive off into the sunset.
I’m not saying looking cool is the best thing about riding motorcycles, but “bad ass” never goes out of style. If you spend a lot of time really riding, you’ll come to realize that safety and being seen is a lot more important than swagger. And if you can’t make it, fake it.
BBC Sport confirms that motorcyclist Daniel Hegarty has died after hitting the barrier at the Macau Grand Prix. Hegarty was airlifted to the hospital but died in transit. He was 31 years old.
You just pulled your beloved motorcycle leathers out of storage only to find out they’re full of mold, which terrifies you. What do you do? Well, you ask a Clean Person!
Any event that attracts a team called “Super Loud Noise Problematic Racing,” was clearly made for us. Mobaru Twin Circuit’s Baridori event—“bari” from the “baribari” sound of loud bikes, and “dori” from “dorifto”—is a special place for Japan’s rowdiest grassroots racers to compete, and one man can do it all thanks to…
I never intended to become “the motorcycle guy” at the office and amongst my friends. But when you quit cars to become a bike-only person, you tend to stand out. And notice things.
We’ve basically seen the first part of this video many, many times before, and it almost always ends in behavior that makes you feel a little ashamed to be a human. Dangerous driving mistakes are made, someone narrowly avoids death, and then people, full of insecurity and guilt and wrath and fear, lash out at one…
If I just hadn’t gotten on Craigslist today, my conscience would have been fine. I would never have known the tragedy that had taken place to a machine I once held dear. So much time and effort was put into that bike. My poor, helpless Kawasaki. What happened to you?
The United States is spending billions on highways, railways, and roads to, ostensibly make it easier for Americans to get around. Even with all that spending, our infrastructure is nowhere near where it needs to be. But there’s another cheap solution that could ease traffic, parking, and wear on infrastructure:…
Yamaha brought something interesting for the Tokyo Motor Show, and it’s a bizarro three-wheeler sportbike. Surely it’s too early for it to be some sort of elaborate April Fool’s joke, right?
The Honda Gold Wing and I are both headed into our 43rd year. Unlike me, the Gold Wing keeps getting lighter, sportier and more efficient.
It’s Saturday night and this emu knows that you can have fun on two wheels.
I’ve been trying to figure it out for some time now. What is it about early ’90s sportbikes that gives my stomach butterflies? Is it the round headlights, the voluptuous fairings, or the lack of electronics? Whatever the reason, there is one bike in particular that has been on my realistic must-have list for a long…
Thousands of homes have been destroyed and dozens of lives lost in the wildfires of Santa Rosa, California. Thankfully, heroes like Dr. Scott Witt have the courage to risk their safety and help those in need.
Kalashnikov, the Russian conglomerate best known for the AK-47 assault rifle, is getting into the electric motorcycle game. The details are sparse, but it’s my sad duty to report that it doesn’t look like the bikes will come with banana-magazine range extender batteries.
Remember that feeling of terror when a five-year-old version of you climbed aboard your tricycle before careening down a giant hill? That’s nothing compared to what François Gissy must have felt climbing aboard this adult-sized trike powered by a water tank pressurized to 6,000 PSI.
While crashes in motorcycle racing can be spectacular, we love crazy saves the most. Watch Kawasaki rider Anthony West come off his Kawasaki in last weekend’s MotoAmerica race in Pittsburgh and then cling to side the bike while bringing the machine to a halt.
There’s a lot of determination exhibited in this video. First, there’s the determination of the driver of that 2008-ish Mercedes-Benz S-Class to be a colossal dick and hit three cars and then take off running, there’s the determination of the biker to not let him get away with it, and then there’s the determination of…
The looming death-spiral of the motorcycle world and its dire need to lure in millennials has been a hot topic discussion as of late, and the issues are abundantly clear in the industry’s most well-known brand. According to Bloomberg, Harley-Davidson is witnessing a sharp decline in sales of just about everything…
