Motorcycle riders don’t enjoy the same luxury of safety that people in cars do. They are completely exposed and a collision that wouldn’t really hurt a driver can seriously injure a rider. So, it’s understandable that when this rider narrowly avoids colliding with a stunting Lamborghini, the rider’s alleged girlfriend…
To be entirely honest with you, I would not ever look at a motorcycle and think, “I bet I could ride this and also kick a ball into a net while surrounded by other dudes on motorcycles trying to kick that ball away from me”. But I am not a badass.
In the winter of 1928, Fay Taylour boarded a ship that would take her across the tumultuous ocean, from England all the way to Australia. Taylour brought only her most prized possessions: a suitcase packed with her riding leathers and her two motorcycles, a Douglas and a backup Rudge. She was doing what no one—man…
President Donald Trump and Harley-Davidson have been feuding ever since Harley said it was going to move some production overseas because of Trump’s trade war. But it’s been mostly one-sided, as Harley has repeatedly declined to comment on the situation even after Trump backed a Harley boycott. Until today, that is.
Harley-Davidson has a logo, of course, the famous bar and shield, but they have also been making up new logos to put on its bikes for decades. Wildly different logos! Very 1970s logos! Truly odd logos! Here are pictures of nearly all of them—there are way, way more than you think.
Harley-Davidson has just announced significant technological updates for its Touring machines and Cruisers; the cushiest bikes in its barn. The new “Boom! Box” GTS Infotainment System looks slick, but I’m actually a lot more impressed by the infrastructure Harley’s putting behind it.
What we know about Elon Musk’s alleged take-Tesla-private plans a week later, how Lincoln wants to go more premium, Harley-Davidson’s troubles and more on The Morning Shift for Monday, August 13, 2018.
They don’t make adventure bikes like they used to. This 1970 Suzuki TC-90 is an excellent example of low-budget no-frills light off-road capable adventure motorcycle. It’s small and rides on skinny knobbly tires. It had 11 horsepower when it was new, and as Ryan says in the video “Horses just don’t live that long.”…
Harley-Davidson is in a uniquely desperate situation. It’s struggling to attract new riders, especially younger ones, its financials haven’t been great, and it’s in an ugly tariff war with America’s own president. The Motor Company isn’t giving up just yet though, and today announced a plan to get new blood buying.
No race on earth is like the Isle of Man TT. No race will probably be like it ever again. In our safety-obsessed, lawsuit-happy world, the wild annual motorcycle race through the towns on this tiny island in the Irish Sea is an anomaly that few get to witness and even fewer experience. But you can come close by…
The Benelli TNT600 is an Italian-branded Chinese-made naked upright sport motorcycle. Its power-to-price ratio is pretty excellent. It’s also a little lumbering and oddly bulbous. It’s a lot of bike for the bucks and it’s a lot of bike in general.
I understand the appeal of soccer. There are elements of tribe pride, athletic endurance, and brutally fierce competition that add up to an awesome experience. The sport is essentially dead here in the U.S., but practically every other country in the world goes berserk for a bunch of dudes chasing a ball around an…
Northern Ireland motorcycle racer William Dunlop died after a crash during a practice for the Skerries 100 road race in County Dublin over the weekend, the motorcycle club hosting the race announced Saturday. Dunlop was 32.
The wildest part is how easy he makes it all look. I could do that, you think, watching Travis Pastrana clear 16 buses, I just don’t want to.
