I’m not a motorcyclist, but I try to be an advocate for them. When I’m out driving I respect bikes and give them a safe distance. I don’t tailgate or change lanes around them suddenly. It’s the least I can do for our friends on two wheels. This is doubly true for owners of the Suzuki Hayabusa: if I see you on one of…
Yesterday, in Augusta, Georgia, a man and his motorcycle were felled by a sinkhole that opened up outside of a shopping center. This is just the latest sinkhole for the city, according to The Augusta Chronicle, which also saw one swallow a garbage truck last May.
Things are getting worse for Harley-Davidson, the maker of motorcycles that your dad aspired to ride. They will be closing a plant in Kansas City, Missouri, the company disclosed today, while reporting fourth-quarter profits that fell 82 percent (!) compared to the fourth quarter of last year. They also announced…
Oscar Nilsson filed a lawsuit against General Motors Monday concerning a collision between Nilsson on his motorcycle and a Chevy Bolt involved in GM’s Cruise self-driving test program in San Francisco.
Honda rider Joan Barreda Bort injured his knee badly on the seventh stage of the Dakar Rally this year, which he then went on to win. It took three more stages with a completely busted knee—one so badly injured that Barreda couldn’t even stand on it—before Barreda retired from the rally.
For many people, seeing a Frenchman dressed as Santa Claus on a motorcycle usually means that Cirque du Soleil is in town, so be extra wary and trust nobody. This time, though, Motorcycle Santa is something of a hero, chasing down a terrible hit-and-run driver.
“What do you mean, you don’t own a car?” The tall man in the cowboy hat asked, looking at me like I’d just landed from Mars or New York. He may have admired my sheer chutzpah, but I doubt it.
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.
