    There’s no conventional beauty in the oddball creations of David Gonzalez. But there’s a steady demand for the unusual bikes that roll out of his garage in Barcelona, Spain.

    26 May 2015 | 10:01 am
    The Suzuki Katana is a bit of an oddball by today’s design standards. But it was hot property in its heyday—and those who love it never seem to shake the attraction. Take Peter, the owner of this particular Katana. An Englishman living in Spain, he spent his youth thrashing his 1984 GSX1100 in both countries. When it was time to upgrade to something fresher, he couldn’t bring himself to sell it. So he parked it in the shed, with the intention of reviving it later. After eight years, he finally dragged the Katana out and handed it over to Jose and Tito at Macco Motors. “It was…

    The Honda CL360 gets easier on the eye as the years go by. It’s perhaps the most elegant of the original scramblers—but it’s also four decades old, and a long way off the pace of a modern bike. Steve Healey is a fan of the CL360, but he wanted something a little less pedestrian. Fortunately, he’s a long-time friend of Casey and Corey Wilkinson—the multi-talented brothers from Indiana who build classy café racers when they’re not running their design studio. The brothers first met Steve during a charity motorcycle ride. Steve’s young daughter Anna had…

    Some days are better than others, and those some days are spent either in the garage or on the bike. We recently picked up a 1976 Honda 360T from a music video producer last month and have been spending a lot of time in the garage. We’ve since learned the former ‘builders” (using the term very loosely) had made more than a few mistakes in building this little foe-cafe bike. Intended to be used by my fiancée as her first bike, it needs to be reliable, safe and stylish. Here’s a rundown of the improvements and mistakes we’ve made so far.

Looks good, we think, though we shudder to think about the kind of money DEM must have charged Bloom for building this machine. Ah, the joys of financial…

    Few sedans are as alluring as the Aston Martin Rapide S (astonmartin.com), and considering the car’s looks, agility, and speed, it is no wonder that the company’s designers insist on calling it a four-door sports car instead of a sedan.

We went to Randy’s donuts, took a bicycle vacation and I got to pedal across the Golden Gate Bridge. Since we hadn’t actually…

    Barn finds are good and well, providing you actually have barns where you live. But as long as you have old geezers who love to horde, you’re going to find old bikes hidden away. Here in Australia we usually find them in sheds or garages. And clearly barns are the preferred storage method for the forgetful oldies in the US. But what about Germany? Apparently carpenter’s shops are all the rage over there. And if Jochen Guske and his find are anything to go by, the common inhabitants of the average Deutsche woodworkhaus are none other than the ‘Kawikus Kaffeus’ – also known…

    Written by Marlon Slack. 10 years ago, public appreciation was heaped on enormous cruisers that were adorned with novelties and caked in chrome. People loved those things, all 500 kilos of rolling tribute to American ostentatiousness. But as the GFC hit and wallets emptied, tastes shifted and the love of gleaming polish and excess gave way to matte paint, raw steel and clip-ons. Somewhere in between these two extremes sits The Gasbox’s 1944 Harley Davidson Knucklehead. A bike that’s clean, lean and executed with no flourishes except an incredible eye for detail and a…

    Three years ago I was in Fairbanks, Alaska on my Everyday for 7 Weeks trip. Click the link if you want to see the daily posts and photos. I rode my SV650 for seven weeks and 12,000 miles from Minneapolis to Fairbanks to San Diego and back. While I was in Fairbanks, I had the great fortune to meet and stay with Richard and his family. We also went on a couple rides. It was great fun.   Check out the other posts: Everyday for 7 Weeks - San Diego by way of Alaska Written by Chrisluhman for Everyday Riding. All rights reserved.

    This past week and weekend, I taught my first Basic Rider Course of 2015. I have seven courses scheduled for this year. This class was at Century College. The normal schedule is a weeknight classroom session followed by a half day Saturday and Sunday. I had the afternoon class this past weekend with eleven students and a co-coach. The class went well. It rained a lot on the second day, which I think makes the students better since they can get over being scared of rain. Most of them did very well, and only one failed.

    This last weekend was the TC Dual Sport Tech Day hosted by my friend Paul. The day is for folks to get together talk about motorcycles and get some maintenance work done with friends. There is usually a few people doing tires and at least one KLR doohickey mod. My WR250R needs tires, battery, and few other odds and ends to make it safe to ride. I thought about riding it over with the tires strapped to my back somehow, but I was feeling lazy. I decided to take my Super9 instead. It was REALLY nice weather compared to past years. It was sunny and almost 80F by the time I left around noon. …

I’ve ridden this road many times; I love the views of the cliffs and the river riding north. We ended up taking a…

    With spare time and a sunny Saturday afternoon, riding was necessary. The problem was, which motorcycle should I ride? The super9 was high on the list as was the SV650. Then I thought about the motorcycle I want to sell: the GZ250 I decided to take it out for a ride. I’ve recently put new tires on, a new battery, fresh brake fluid, new air filter, new oil, new spark plugs, and carb clean. I thought I should take it out for a bit of a shake down ride to make sure it is in ready condition to sell. Long time readers may be a bit confused at this point. Wait, when did you get the GZ250??

    Y’all probably remember (because, come on, who can forget…?) my dear pal Tina “Sash” Walker and her husband, Steve “Highway” Johnson – they came to Iowa on their original Road Pickle journey in 2013 and I had the privilege of taking them around some of my favorite sights and roads. (Hey, the girl wanted to see Iowa CORN – what else could I do?) Anyways, Tina has her own internet-based marketing/coaching business, numerous blogs, and an open book of a life that sometimes puts her in the hot seat but always keeps her memorable. Hopefully, you…

I hardly ever write about my personal life unless it’s a major milestone or something.

But this year, my riding season was severely curtailed when my life took a turn that I really could not blog about.

    Lately there has been a growing trend towards the low profile style of motorcycle seats.  There have been mixed feelings about them, with half of the riders loving the looks, and the other half wondering how you could ride even ten miles on something so thin.  If you’re part of the latter group and haven’t sat on one of the new offerings, you may be surprised.  With the latest foam and cushion technology, you can get exceptional comfort from a much thinner seat.  So much so, that it may even convert some of the comfy-couch-seat diehards.

Fortunately, there is a solution that just happens to be an incredibly easy fix.  Integrated turn signals eliminate the bugginess and the interruption of the streamlined design.  For the rear, the turn signals are combined with the…

    After a muddy and fun-filled day on the dirt track, your motorcycle might be absolutely filthy. Washing your dirt bike can seem like a nightmare with the amount of mud covering it, but the process is actually very important to keep your bike lasting.

However, doing this to your bike can wear down the foam inside your saddle, ruin your rubber seals and destroy your brake pads or disc.

    Michael Padway

    One of the biggest topics in motorcycle riding has been lane splitting. Car drivers hate it. Motorcycle riders would find it hard to live without it. Now legislation in several states is being considered that will make it legal. California has allowed it for many years. This is a debate that has been without data points for a long time. The Hurt report released in 1981 didn’t really address it. The 2009 Maids report used statistics from countries that don’t allow it, and they didn’t dig very deep, either. That said, they reported a far less frequency of accidents from lane…

    Racing season is upon us, and as street riders, one of the big challenges seems to be getting a knee down. Don’t ask me why, or what the benefits are. The biggest advantage of dragging a knee is to feel where the ground is, using a knee puck on your racing leathers. What does this have to do with the street? Nothing! That said, here is the big secret to touching a knee. First, back to basics. Pretend that you are looking down at a motorcycle going in a circle. The circle made by the tires will be larger than the circle made by your helmet, because you are leaning to turn. Think about…

    Something disturbing that I deal with regularly are riders who have been in a motorcycle accident, and now are afraid to get back on their bike. It is very difficult to make a non-rider understand what this means, because most people who do not ride motorcycles consider it an unsafe activity to begin with. Many of the riders I work with ride motorcycles as an important part of their lifestyle. Some retired in order to take long trips. Others choose to ride motorcycles as their main transportation. I often compare these riders to those who give up riding because they lack confidence in their…
