The Tennessee Knockout is billed as the toughest extreme enduro race in America. For good reason. Riders manhandle their bikes up impossibly steep hills, through creeks and over logs and mossy boulders. All at breathtaking speeds. I was exhausted just watching.
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…
Somebody finally figured out how to set the clock on a VHS player and holy crap, turns out that thing was actually a time machine all along! Also, if summer camp games plus motorcycles sounds appealing, you’re suddenly in luck.
Harley is losing it with young people in America, and it’s not because the bikes are bad, as Regular Car Reviews explains. It’s because the bikes are un-ownable. They can’t escape the microcosm of Harley-Davidson the brand.
Perhaps, as a member of the common folk, my tastes are not quite as exquisite as those of the wealthy. I sometimes pronounce menu items wrong and I often stay away from foods I’ve never heard of, which means I am likely not affluent enough to enjoy the taste of $1,000 gin with motorcycle-engine parts in it.
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…
There’s nothing inherently difficult about riding the Confederate P51 Combat Fighter. But the $135,000 price tag that is never too far from your mind as you rev the colossal 2,163 cc V-twin engine. It’s hard to concentrate on much else when you’re repeating a mantra of “Do not drop this bike!” into your helmet.
Beads of sweat snaked down my back. It was only 80 or so degrees outside, but clad in thick jeans, boots, a long-sleeved henley, a black motorcycle jacket, riding gloves and a black motorcycle helmet, I strained to balance an unwieldy motorcycle on a blacktop while the sun beat mercilessly down upon me. And everyone…
I never knew I wanted an electric kick scooter until BMW unveiled its new X2City. With a range of up to 21 miles at speeds of up to 15 mph and a folding steering column, you can zip around town and then stow it in the trunk of your car without breaking a sweat.
Brazil in the 1970s to early 1990s was a fascinating crucible for the creation of weird vehicles. Their protectionist trade policies forced local solutions to everything, and the results were often fascinating. I’ve covered, at length, the strange Volkswagen variations that bloomed there, and now I’d like to cover one…
Huh. Looks like your bike rides better without you, man.
It was heartbreak in Assen, Netherlands for Dutch rider Bo Bendsneyder as his 10th place finish was given a DNF. A last lap kurfuffle with another rider on the final chicane resulted in Bensneyder being ejected from his bike as he slid across the finish line. Apparently this is against the rules. Lame.
This motorcyclist was caught knocking off mirrors, supposedly speeding at over 100 mph, and has pending charges of driving recklessly on a California highway. Unfortunately for him, his hooligan antics were caught by a CHP helicopter leading police units on the ground straight to his home.
A few months ago, I rode on the back of a MotoAmerica racing motorcycle at Circuit of the Americas and it terrified the life out of me. Most of you were pretty terrified by it, too. But I have some news that will make me sound much less hardcore: A brave 91-year-old woman did the same thing recently.
If you had a choice you probably wouldn’t choose to ride in extremely hot weather. But you don’t always have the option, like when you’re out on a road trip and need to be home sooner than later. Assuming shedding layers of protective gear isn’t an option—and for purposes of this discussion, it isn’t—how do you keep…
The FIM Superbike World Championship race was in its final corners Saturday when leader Chaz Davies wrecked and fell off of his bike. The rider racing for second was right behind Davies, and didn’t have time to avoid running over him as he crashed. A local hospital diagnosed Davies with multiple injuries.
James Hillier looked like he was headed for a fifth-gear wipeout at the deadly dangerous Isle of Man TT when his bike got sideways on a jump early in the race. Incredibly, Hillier was able to hold on and steady the wildly bucking motorcycle (extra points for the leg wave) and continue on its way.
Dutch rider Jochem van den Hoek, 28, died Wednesday morning following a crash on the first lap of the Superstock race at Isle of Man TT, race organizers confirmed in a statement. An average of more than two competitors die each year in the race, and Van den Hoek is the second in 2017.
