I Got Tossed Off A Brand New Kawasaki—And It Sucked

I’ve been riding motorcycles for about ten years, and in that time I’ve been pretty lucky. I was the outlying ratio, due to the fact I had never been down (i.e.: crashed) in my life.

How To Get A Cheap Motorcycle And Not Crash It

The problem is, most things are Good in inverse proportion to the degree to which they’re Fun. Broccoli is Good; Bacon is Fun. Taxes are Good; Casinos are Fun. Gyms are Good; Bars are Fun. You get the picture. But assuming, as I do, that all of us must live at least a little, few things are less Good and more Fun than… » 7/29/15 1:07pm 7/29/15 1:07pm

India’s Hero Buys Erik Buell Racing R&D And Consulting For $2.8M

Hero MotoCorp owned a 49.2 percent stake in Erik Buell Racing before it went under, and part of that investment was for Buell and Co. to design and develop a series of bikes and technologies for the company. Now India’s massive motorcycle outfit is getting some of that investment back in a yet-to-be-approved… » 7/28/15 7:09pm 7/28/15 7:09pm

Don't Film The Hells Angels Because They Will Destroy Your Window

If you’re just hanging with your bros, your dudes, your fellows or what have you, you might think it’s fun to take a little video of a passing Hells Angels gang. You might think it’s innocent. But the Hells Angels have a reputation to maintain, so they’ll smash in your fucking window. » 7/27/15 4:10pm 7/27/15 4:10pm

I’d kill myself on one of those

I can remember most of my life saying “I’d kill myself on one of those” as I’d look at a Ducati thunder past. But I’d still stare, longingly as one would pass because of the allure, the perfectly sculpted of the red panels, the throaty rhythmic melody of a glorious V-Twin. Hell, even the ability to pin the throttle… » 7/22/15 7:11pm 7/22/15 7:11pm
