Motorcycles are allowed to split lanes all over the world. It keeps traffic flowing in Bangkok, it helps deliver lunches in India, and when Australia tried to make it illegal, the uproar was so fierce politicians caved to public demand. But of the 50 states in this glorious place called America, only one allows… »
It's a simple formula. Put an ATV and a Suzuki GSX-R on a frozen lake, add some studded tires, and you've got video gold. But something's missing. Oh yeah, live grenades. »
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.
If you needed further proof that Marc Marquez is a two-wheeled deity on any surface, here's onboard footage from the guy behind him at the Superprestigio final. »
Le French Atelier isn't well known in the U.S. custom bike scene. They've been cranking out tracker-style rides for the past few years, but their latest project is a bit of a coming out party – a Suzuki GSX-R that's as simple as it is sleek.
The Ducati Scrambler comes in four flavors, but as I found out this week, there are no mechanical differences between them. It's the same engine, the same suspension, and the same frame holding it all together. And that means you can pull any bit from any bike to create your own. It's like a two-wheeled LEGO kit, so… »
At some point Red Bull is going to run out of unique, picturesque places to shoot obscenely talented riders. Today is not that day. »
At some point the motorcycle industry forgot that bikes are supposed to be fun. They don't have to be overpowered enablers of natural selection or obscenely styled, over-priced midlife crisis machines or vapidly retro fashion trinkets. They just need to be fun. And the new Ducati Scrambler is exactly that. »
Allow me to talk you into a thing: I think it's a great idea to ride a motorcycle between moving cars on a highway. »
Making a splash as an exhaust company isn't exactly easy. You're basically hawking metal tubes of various shapes and sizes. So to cut through the clutter of a bike show, you've got to go big, and for Akrapovič, that meant making this monster streamliner with a 30-inch wheel and a slightly unfortunate name. »
Motorcycle trials champion Julien Dupont was "very nervous" as he found himself in the perched on his bike, parked on Mexico City's three-quarter-mile Montaña Rusa roller coaster. But he looked freakin' fearless ripping backflips on the skinny track 100' off the ground. »
"Everybody crashes" is kind of an unofficial motto at SoCal Supermoto. It's certainly not encouraged, it's more of an inevitability. The school is hosted on a kart track, so it's all about high limits and low speeds. Crashes happen but damage is minimal. So I'm not entirely sure why I'm at an emergency room six hours… »
The state of Tennessee has finally done what anyone who's driven on the Tail of The Dragon assumed was common sense: banned big rigs from the road. »
How much bang for your buck can you get on a new bike in 2015? We finally squeezed the EPA hard enough to get the official power figures for the bikes going on sale in 2015, and the list contains a few surprises, a few new faces, and a lot of familiar names. Let's take a look. »
