You’ve heard of “kit cars,” right? Buy them in pieces, on purpose, for the joy of assembling and subsequent satisfaction of driving something wrought from your own hands. Moto8ight wants to do the same, but with motorcycles. And they say their kit could go from boxes to roadworthy in about two hours.
I haven’t driven my dirtbike in a very long time, and I almost never drove it in the rain or on wet roads. But sometimes you get caught in the weather, and highway speed become extremely dangerous. Luckily the two riders managed to keep each other safe in this clip after a major wipe out in the wet.
Humans, when faced with a challenging obstacle, revert to an instictive mode that has only two possible settings: fight, or flight. When fighting isn’t possible - as is the case with this idiot bike rider who crashes his bike after the police try to apprehend him - the only option is to run as fast as your skinny…
Motorcyclists are an interesting bunch, and we often focus on the things that divide us rather than bring us together. Sometimes that causes a lot of problem, but other times it’s just plain funny. This guy’s description of the different groups had me in tears.
KTM has been making some interesting moves as of late, moves which have us all sorts of excited for what 2017 looks like for the Austrian brand. All signs point to a new engine that should be quite a doozy.
You’ve all been there. It’s time for a new car, but your job and personal life and just don’t really give you the time to sell your old one. It’s a lot of work! Getting it cleaned and detailed. Fixing any minor things it needs before it will sell. Taking photos that might catch someone’s eye, and figuring out how to…
Yamaha has a new adventure bike on the way, and it’s based on the one of the best and most economical naked sportbikes in production, the Yamaha FZ-07. 2017 is going to be a very interesting year for the adventure bike segment.
These guys are everything that’s wrong with motorcyclists, and they’re why people hate us.
The second model from the Scrambler Ducati line is making its way stateside, and I spent a day romping all over Venice, California so I could tell you about it. Photos are being edited and the review is on the way, so get your questions in now.
Please enjoy motorcycle racer John McGuinness, a frequent destroyer of the Isle of Man TT races since 2006, squeezing his way between opponents and the tight walls of last year’s Macau Motorcycle Grand Prix from the vantage point of his bum.
One of the coolest things about the motorcycle industry is the people you meet in it. For most of them, motorcycling isn’t a job, it’s a way of life, and something that they live out even when they clock out. Heath Cofran, who’s a communications pro for gearmaker Alpinestars, is one of the guys, and his Ducati…
My favorite vantage point at Austin’s Circuit of the Americas is overlooking Turn 1, the blind uphill left immediately after the front straight. It’s a notoriously tough corner and I love watching how different drivers (and in the case of MotoGP this weekend, riders) take their lines there. It doesn’t always end well.
Marc Marquez won his first race ever at Circuit of the Americas and hasn’t lost a race here since. And, while he’s been the fastest throughout the practice sessions and qualifying at this year’s race, it hasn’t been by nearly the margins expected. Tomorrow’s event could be much more interesting than we originally…
Side-by-side (SxS) vehicles have surged in popularity on off-road race circuits because of their affordability and accessibility. Rigs like the Polaris RZR are a great value for dollar when you want to get into desert racing, but UTVUnderground does a solid job breaking the whole proposition down here.
If you’re in Austin this weekend, whether it’s for MotoGP or just the tacos, you need to get on down to the Handbuilt Motorcycle Show on the East Side. The admission’s free!
If you somehow don’t like bikes, or bike racing, what you need to do is tune into the only American race on the MotoGP calendar this year. It will change your mind. Even better, if you’re in Texas, you should come out and join us!
Australian motorcycle drag racer Brett Ghedina found himself rolling down the drag strip after his motorcycle rocketed from beneath him. The footage is startling, but somehow, the rider shakes it off like a boss.
Chase Guthrie is a bad, bad man on a supermoto. And I love supermotos. Guthrie and his team put together a little video of some of his recent riding, and it’s holy-shit levels of awesome.
Want to know Honda’s secret sauce in their race bike, what ace racer Marc Marquez thinks about Jorge Lorenzo going to Ducati, or his thoughts on “the kick?” Yeah, so does everyone else, because all the racers keep giving canned responses. So I asked him some different questions from you guys, and got some even better…
