Vax Moto is a cavernous garage in Gowanus, Brooklyn with motorcycles stacked up to the ceiling. Proprietor Justin Walters has set it up to serve the bike community by offering safe parking, and now he’s serving up tacos. This place is an oasis of biker-friendly awesomeness in the pot-hole’d battlefield of New York…
Actor, writer and director Dax Shepard is about to drop CHIPS, an odd couple-action-motorcycle-comedy about endearingly idiotic California cops and hilarious highway hijinks inspired by the ‘70s TV show of the same name. What audiences may not know is Shepard’s a real gearhead, so I caught up with him in Hollywood to…
Motorcycle accidents are, generally, terrifying. This one that happened this week on the I-880 southbound in Milpitas, California is no exception. Thankfully, the biker lived. Still, yikes.
the script for every ride I went on for about two years: It starts as a
pinpoint of pain, about halfway up my spine and maybe an inch to the right of
center. Nothing to worry about, a little
stiffness is all. Keep going.
This past Saturday, a stunt, equally daring and stupid, happened over the 60 freeway in Riverside County. A dirt bike, possibly ridden by 24-year old motocross biker Kyle Katsandris, appears to have jumped over the four-lane Moreno Valley highway. The California Highway Patrol is taking steps to prevent anyone else…
I went to The One Motorcycle Show in Portland over this past weekend so you didn’t have to. Actually, you should have, because it was awesome. More than 120 bikes on were on display, ranging from the pristine to bizarre. Plus, lots of beer and food, live music and more stickers than you could possibly use.
360-degree “virtual reality” YouTube videos are lame and gimmicky most of the time. But come on, I know you’re not about to turn down the opportunity to be part of Project Badass.
I’m going to Portland this weekend to check out the unveiling of Alta Motors’ Redshift ST, a lightweight electric motorcycle that is touted as the perfect tool for a flat track race or tackling your urban commute. And you should ask me what you want to know about it.
Riding motorcycles may be the only sensible way to get around Los Angeles. It’s either ride or go insane, as I would if I drove a car the 40 miles it takes to get to my office each day. On a motorcycle, it’s about 45 minutes. In a car, two to three hours depending on the wind, angle of the sun, or for some reason, how…
Sand dunes are the perfect place to go hog wild on your dirt bike or 4x4. Hysterically fun terrain, jumps for days and all the room you could ever need to spread your wings and stop worrying about traffic. I mean, you’d have to have seriously bad luck hit somebody out there. Like this guy, apparently.
While you were out drinking last night, about 90 lunatics on dirt bikes were going to war with each other over ridiculous terrain in the pitch-black Mojave desert. Just... just watch.
President Donald Trump was set to visit Harley-Davidson’s Milwaukee factory to tour the facility and sign some executive orders this week. But in light of the protests around President Donald Trump’s effort to ban Muslim refugees from entering the U.S, a visit by Trump to the Motor Company is no longer happening,…
In countries where most people commute on scooters or motorcycles, traffic laws seem to be more of a suggestion than a rule. This scooter rider takes on a crazy first person ride that he calls “not that scary” and I almost had a heart attack.
Pictured above is Ken Roczen, supercross rider, in his happy place. He’s on a bike (kinda) and in the air. Pictured below is Ken Roczen in a slightly less desired position. His arm has been opened up.
Your next KTM or Vespa could soon get a lot more expensive. And it’s all because Europeans don’t want to buy American beef from cattle raised on growth hormones. Makes sense, right? Welcome to the world of international trade disputes.
Doing a double backflip on anything is pretty hard. Doing it with a big hulking 450-pound snowmobile is downright insane. After many, many attempts by snowmobile riders around the world, Swedish rider Daniel Bodin finally stuck the landing on one of the hardest snowmobile tricks in history.
Up until Saturday night, Ken Roczen’s season in Monster Energy Supercross was going quite well. He won the first two events of the season, and went into the third race in Anaheim, California as the points leader ahead of the dominant defending champion Ryan Dungey. Then, this happened.
And so it begins, in this year of our orange overlord: a new season of motorsport beefs. Last night’s AMA Supercross race in Anaheim, California brought us the first episodes of anger in 2017, debuting what some overeager commentators have been waiting for from the edge of their seats: the fights, duh.
