    Photo: jamesellison.co.uk JAMES Ellison has described yesterday’s first race at Thruxton a ‘disaster’ after crashing at high speed due to oil on the track dumped by Richard Cooper's Kawasaki engine.The JG Speedfit Kawasaki rider was right behind Cooper’s Anvil TAG Kawasaki at Church when it dumped oil all over the track on lap six. Unfortunately Ellison hit the oil and was launched at high speed from his ZX-10R machine which resulted in a broken left wrist. Speaking after the incident, Ellison explained: “The race itself was going well, we were running in…

    Harley-Davidson's Street 750 IT’S never a surprise to hear that Harley-Davidson is the best-selling road-going motorcycle brand in America but after the first six months of 2015 the firm has taken the top spot halfway around the world in Australia as well.In terms of road-going bikes, Harley’s 4,566 sales in Australia between January and June 2015, up from 3,985 the year before, was enough to easily eclipse Honda (on 3,980 sales). That’s something that would have been unimaginable just a few years ago. The figures give Harley a 21.1% share of the overall road bike market,…

Is it surfing? It could be a bit of both or something completely new, but storming around both land and water in Tahiti on a two-stroke looks like more fun than pretty much anything invented in the history of human…

    2 Aug 2015 | 3:12 pm
    The past twenty-four hours or so has found me surrounded by beauty.  The beauty of some wonderful landscapes. The beauty of good weather. The beauty of good people. Not the least of which was the beauty of love.  In fact I believe I’ve witnessed more love than anytime in the recent past. I was fortunate enough to participate in the wedding of two of the finest folks I know.  The setting was outside a home built in 1800 down in South Caroline. As you can imagine the architecture was amazing.  The surround fields and woods more than did their part as well.  Friends and family…

    The 4th of July always weighs heavy on my heart.  I have so many memories of family reunions and traveling down to West Tennessee. The 4th was my old man’s birthday.  How fitting is it that I traveled over to West Tennessee for a U.K.C. bench show today?  It was nice for Chigger to have his first Champion class win on Daddy’s birthday.  I can’t help but to believe he’s looking down smiling at me and my beloved Bluetick hounds.  He would have been 92 today.

    Life has been a winding twisting road of late. Granted that can be fun at times. There are other  times when it simply wears you down. Ups and downs. Slowly I’m picking my way through the boondoggle. One thing is certain. This is an education. Life isn’t always a pleasant learning experience either. The school of hard knocks is filled with none other than hard knocks. This year has had a turbulent start. Recovering from surgery was no cake walk. That took much longer than I ever anticipated.  We also had plenty of winter weather.  That added up to an additional week out of…

    What’s with this stuff that they call country music these days? It’s certainly not country. It’s not rap. Its crap. All of it sounds the same.  I think this stuff needs to have a name.  I say we call it Honky Hip Hop. What say ye? Personally, the part that irks me the most is that people are trying to pass this off as country music. You know, there is plenty of room for any type of music that you enjoy.  I don’t like all music, obviously. Take people like Cross Canadian Ragweed, Joe Ely, Chris Knight and others.  They obviously have country influences. Yet they…

  • The Suzuki GS750, revisited

    Chris Hunter
    3 Aug 2015 | 10:01 am
    In the mid-70s, Suzuki was reeling from the disastrous RE5 rotary episode, and bet the house on a new 4-stroke inline four. The GS750 was an immediate hit with journalists and riders alike: “The quickest and best-handling 750 on the market,” raved Cycle World. So why don’t we see more of them on the custom scene? Lukas and Sylwester of Poland’s Eastern Spirit Garage are fans. “We think it’s a very underrated model,” they told us. “We hope this build will change the view within the café racer scene.” It’s a stunning creation, with…
  • Kevils’ timeless BMW R100 Scrambler

    Custom BMWs are all the rage right now. But one workshop in England was producing stunning airheads way before they were cool. Kev Hill and his crew at Kevil’s Speed Shop have been at it for six years, and over seventy builds have rolled out of the workshop in picturesque Devon. So they know their oats, and have clients lining up around the block: they’re turning out a new Beemer every three weeks. This particular R100-based scrambler has an understated, functional appeal that immediately grabbed our attention. It was built for a car dealer from Leamington Spa, which Kev describes…

    Nuno Capêlo is one of those renaissance guys who have way too much talent. He’s an architect-turned-bike-designer, who can sketch out sharp-looking concepts ready to be turned into metal. Nuno’s CV includes Portugal’s best builders—including it roCkS!bikes and Ton-Up Garage. And now he can add this very funky custom scrambler to the list. It’s a collaboration with Dream Wheels Heritage, and based on a 1989 Honda Dominator. After a little brainstorming, the guys decided that the bike should be a nod to 70s-era Hondas—referencing bikes like the TL250 and CL450. Nuno…
  • Enduring Appeal: Untitled’s racing-style R80

    Chris Hunter
    28 Jul 2015 | 10:01 am
    You don’t have to see the latest build from Untitled Motorcycles to recognize its racing pedigree. Hear it on the street and you’d swear you were at the track. “This BMW is very fast,” says Adam Kay, co-founder of the workshop with the strangest name in the custom business. “The sound of the under-seat exhausts really gives it away.” UMC-028 was built for a British customer, a man lucky enough to grow up around high-performance motorcycles and cars. It’s inspired by the evocative endurance racers of the 1980s and based on a 1986 BMW R80 Mono. “We chose the R80 for its…

    We’ve showcased a fair number of Tritons before—and even a Norley—but this is the first time we’ve laid eyes on a ‘Burton.’ And it’s magnificent. ‘Ed’s Burton’ belongs to London-based Edward Jonkler, and it’s the most unorthodox Norton cafe racer we’ve seen yet. It’s not powered by a Triumph or even a Harley Sportster engine—but one from a Buell X1. And a sorted X1 at that—the donor Buell had already been tuned, and kitted with a number of performance parts. “It was a complete riot to ride,” says Ed. “I was…

  • VIDEO: Robbie Maddison Surfing On A Motorcycle

    Jason Avant
    3 Aug 2015 | 6:33 am
    As a surfer who writes for RideApart, I feel uniquely qualified to report on the video you're about to watch, that of Robbie Maddison riding a very heavily modified motorcycle into the waves at Teahupo'o. I could tell you all of the reasons why this is a terribly stupid thing to do - the legendary Tahitian break is one of the most difficult and dangerous waves on the planet, breaking as it does over an extremely shallow reef that can very easily shatter the bones of even the most experienced big-wave rider. But I'd rather show you. Ouch. What makes Teahupo'o such a monster is not that it's a…

    This week, I decided to do a little window shopping in other windows besides eBay. What I found is a nice example of a rare retro modern Ducati, at a good price, over on the Panjo/RideApart marketplace. The 2002 Ducati MH900e is so amazing it is hard to grasp looking at it that there are about 1999 other exactly like it. Everything on this bike looks hand made or custom, except for the stuff like the Ohlins shock and Brembo brakes, which are all high dollar parts. Many builders of cafe racer restomods with upside down front ends and monoshock conversions are actually emulating this bike,…

    Following in the footsteps of a stunt legend isn't easy, especially if that legend broke 433 bones during his illustrious career. That legend was none other than the insane, egomaniacal and publicity master known as Evel Knievel. Back in the day, Evel dominated the news with daredevil stunts that the world had never seen before. Jumping crates of snakes, cars, buses and canyons, there was nothing Knievel wouldn't try, and the numerous times he almost died and supposedly retired were followed by new attempts at death-defying stunts. Frankly, it's a miracle Knievel lived as long as he did—to…

The three-wheeler configuration was reversed with a single-driven wheel in the back and two front wheels, an ATV chassis, and quite possibly one of the strangest looking vehicles to hit the streets. But it caught on and with successive improvements over the years, it has become a popular option for those who want the thrill of motorcycle cruising with a different dimension and a lower curve for riding skills. What it has effectively done is create its very own…

    Given a URAL sidecar's performance envelope, one goes slower on the steeper hills when motoring about...usually, not a big deal but on the expressway (when they can't be avoided) it can be a big deal if the cager behind you is not attentive.I'd seen loaded semi-tractor trailer rigs put on their four way flashers when struggling uphill on the expressways, thought it a good idea at the time, warn people behind you that you're not going even close to the posted speed limit.I'd done this mod on Valencia, my 2011 URAL Patrol before and today I did the same mod on Scarlett, my 2014 URAL Patrol.Only…

The chopper can be understood as a Folk Art movement with deep roots in a multi-racial American counterculture, as…

    The new Oban Little Bay is a welcome new single malt whisky from one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland. Oban has always been a single malt whisky in short supply, primarily due to its Western Highlands location. Named after Oban Bay and the 18th-century coastal fishing village that grew up around it, the Oban Distillery is hemmed in between the town’s main street and a steeply rising hill so it literally has no room to grow. Hence, ever since the distillery was built in 1794, Oban’s whisky output has been...

    When I saw the name of the town, I couldn’t resist stopping to take a picture of my Tiger in front of it. I only wish I could’ve positioned my camera with the self-timer so I could be in there next to the arrow. Unfortunately the sign was near a highway exit ramp. Since I’m already pressing my luck with cameras I didn’t need this one getting run over. Several times during this trip I’d thought about what a fantastic motorcycle this Tiger is. Maybe it isn’t as sexy or lithe as say a Speed Triple, but it runs like a top and always seems well suited to the job…

    When I get out into the rolling farmland I am often overcome by a sense of peacefulness. Deep green arms flag as I ride by. “Heyyyy there, Miss Fuzzy,” waves the corn. “Hi, corn. Lookin’ good. Lookin’ good.” And so it goes, rambling along going nowhere fast. Roads like this one make me feel grounded and clutter-free. In the perfect, romantic story that I write in my mind about these rural areas, everyone is happy, their lives are never hard. They may not have a lot of luxury but my imaginary farm people are satisfied with what they’ve got.

    3 Aug 2015 | 5:45 am
    Head of Italian workshop Matteucci Garage, Marco Matteucci, is adamant he’s not a mechanic. ‘I’m not even close, I wouldn’t offend the category’ he insists. Instead he comes to motorcycles from a different background, as a graphic designer and advertising photographer with over 20 years experience in the industry. And it shows, with an impressive attention to detail and immaculate fit and finish on his latest build, a Honda XL600 LM he’s dubbed ‘True Blood’. While he may not be a mechanic, Marco certainly built one of the most head-turning builds Pipeburn has featured this…

    31 Jul 2015 | 5:45 am
    Written by Martin Hodgson. A great custom bike is more than just the sum of its parts; it tells a story about the life and times of the machine and its builder, woven together by the dreams and desires of the one who will call the keys their own. While some builders clock on and clock off, others truly live what they do and that is abundantly evident in this café’d Honda CB750 RC42 with more than a little ole school dragster appeal created by Wesley Kim of Rumblesmith in Maryland. Wesley was visiting the Blockstar Car Shop and the owner Bobby when he noticed this Honda gathering dust in a…

Or, god forbid, a fixie. Well Nick van Woert not only owns this radical 1991 Yamaha XT600, he built the thing with his own hands. Stereotype destroyed. And speaking of destruction, a friend has given the bike the nickname “Woert Hog” an homage to both Nick’s name and another close quarter’s machine of demolition, the A-10 Thunderbolt Warthog.

It could be an oily Chinese pit bike, a reliable Japanese commuter or a ratty chook* chaser used for chores around a back paddock. But that first bike, no matter how unreliable, common or dangerous, that bike stays with you. For Sheldon, it was the gloriously volatile RD400. Riding around on the back of his fathers’ RD in the late 70’s gave him an itch that could only be scratched years later with a little help from Brisbane-based workshop Ellaspede. Sheldon had fond…

    It was a shorter riding day today, but it seemed much hotter. The temps were in the 90s all day with a heat index over 100. The 300 miles from Saint Louis to Memphis felt very long. I stopped every 60-80 miles to cool off and rehydrate. I was fortunate to start the day by having breakfast with Keith. We started following each other’s blogs back in 2010 when I first rode through Saint Louis. He came to visit MN after that, and now finally I was able to visit him in MO. We had a nice time chatting and catching up. Below is a picture of my breakfast, you can check out the review: Tree House…

    1 Aug 2015 | 5:22 pm
    This morning I left at sunrise to ride the 540 miles from Minneapolis, MN to Saint Louis, MO. I took my trusty SV650. It has been a great travelling companion; I’ve put nearly 60,000 miles on it since I bought it five years ago. This will be the trip to get that elusive 49th state and watch some MotoGP on the way back. The first stop was Iowa of course. It was cool most of the morning in the low 60s. Perfect riding weather and a much welcomed change from the heat of summer. The early hour meant the roads were empty as well another bonus. Why do you confuse me with signs like this Iowa??

    Last week, was Motorcycle First Thursday in Minneapolis. My WR250R is back in riding condition again thanks to new tires and battery, so I took it down to the event. I expected it to be quite busy with the holiday weekend and beautifully warm weather. Most of the people I know had Friday, July 3rd off, so it was a nice night to be out. I met some new friends and some old ones walking around looking at the motorcycles. Quite a few people showed up, an as usual, there was a good mix of different kinds of motorcycles and people. This was one of the few sidecars I saw this month. A Suzuki G850GS.

    Once a month, some of the rider coaches in Minnesota get together to have fun talking and cornering. One of our training sites has a closed driving course (DCTC). It is about a mile long and about 17 corners depending on the configuration. I’ve been there many times now, most of the time while taking a riding course. The course is also used for SCCA events and truck driving. Last week, we used it to practice cornering. I was one of the first to arrive, so I had the course to myself for about twenty minutes. It was pretty nice. The only company I had was a wild turkey. I rode three different…

    I’ve been getting behind on my motorcycle maintenance for my SV650 and WR250R. I took this past Monday off work, to try and catch up. I badly needed new tires on both bikes. The SV650 got a new pair of Dunlop Q3s to replace the worn out Q2s that were on there. I went about 6,000 miles on the Q2s which is about my average and something I am happy with for such a soft, sticky tire. I really liked the Q and Q2, so I am looking forward to the Q3. Since I had the axle loose, I also spent some time cleaning, lubing, and adjusting the chain. Last on the maintenance list was to change the brake…

    Blog Sponsor
    30 Jul 2015 | 5:48 pm
    The folks at Viking Cycle sent over their Skeid Brown Leather Jacket for me to try. I have to say for the price this is a nice jacket.

    I'm a sucker for retro fairings. I'm obsessed with Honda's legendary CR750 and the TT race bikes of the seventies so I'm always on the lookout for modern customs that take styling cues from that era. One of the latest such builds to pop up on my radar while trawling through my instagram feed was this striking sage green beast. It's the work of Mike Sadler of Division Motorworks in Canada and the bikes owner, Patrick McGregor. Sporting a Dunstall style fairing and an intriguing colour scheme this is one Triumph Thruxton that most certainly stands out from the rest.CONTINUE…

    Honda's mighty CB750 four paved the way for modern motorcycle design and has been heralded as one of the "Greatest Motorcycles Ever Made". With such a colourful history it's easy to see why they've become so popular as a base for customisation. With their classic retro looks and seemingly unlimited potential for custom modification the K series CB's have been getting a lot of attention from builders around the world. With popularity comes price increase so the K's are becoming rather hard to acquire, but if you jump a few years ahead in the CB750 model range to…

    There’s something freeing about being on a motorcycle and heading out into the middle of nowhere.  But that free feeling can turn into a trapped one really quick when you’re stuck out in the middle of nowhere with a punctured tire.  That feeling is multiplied tenfold if you have no way of fixing that flat tire.  It’s at that point that you hope you have cell service and roadside assistance. Being prepared with a tire plug/patch kit in your luggage will go a long way in giving you peace of mind.  It goes a lot further if you actually know how to use it.  You don’t want to be the…

    Modular motorcycle helmets have gotten a bad rap from many “serious” riders for being cumbersome and clunky, especially when they were first introduced.  Those first options were certainly a no-go for anyone who liked to grab a fist full of throttle on the open highway.  The chin bar would whistle and the overall large profile would cause your head to buffet like crazy.  Not ideal. But modular helmets have come a long ways since they first showed up and they are still getting better.  Quite often the prices get higher when things get better and the premium options that are…

There are plenty of riders, new and old, who ride around city streets and parking lots with their feet dragging because they are not confident or…

Cut the tube according to your needs e.g for the Tz125 you need two pieces that measure 24cm in length.  This time I used acetal to make the end plugs on the lathe.  Nothing fancy here, just common lathe operations like facing, turning and…

  • Why the Future of Air Cooled Engines Isn’t Too Hot

    Retro styled bikes are the current big thing in the motorcycle world. The Ducati Scrambler has been a huge sales success with other manufacturers such as Triumph and Moto Guzzi also riding on the popular resurgence of old school charm and character. Ironically though, this increasing popularity of retro bikes comes at a time when their power plant of choice – the air-cooled engine – is under increasing pressure to remain a viable option. The death sentence for air-cooled engines was handed down in 1999 when the Euro 1 emission standard was introduced. European emission…

The 1050 Adventure enters the lineup at the bottom of the ladder, being the cheapest and least powerful of  the bikes on sale. So is it at worthy addition to KTM’s already impressive lineup or do their other bikes offer enough as it is?

The crew at Young Machine have a great deal of imagination and talent for creating these images, having mocked up many renders of upcoming motorcycles in the past though unfortunately their track record is fairly inaccurate of late. That said, if the all new Suzuki superbike did resemble this concept, we would’t be complaining too much. It’s contemporary looking enough without being too out there…

Every single component will have high and low spots, and they use…
