    Siberia. 13 million square kilometres of the most sparsely populated land on Earth and as it turns out, home to one of the coolest custom Honda CB550's around. Roman Molchanov runs the workshop 'Hammerbike Customs' in the frozen heart of Siberia (that may not be an accurate statement, but it sounds cool) where he services customer bikes and builds world class custom motorcycles. In a country where custom workshops are as rare as people and spare parts are as readily available as leprechauns Roman's built a custom CB550 that's as cool as the snow surrounding the…

    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…

  • Oxblood: Urban Rider’s BMW street scrambler

    Chris Hunter
    30 Mar 2015 | 10:01 am
    It’s not often that a color inspires a bike build—and certainly not a color such as ‘oxblood.’ But that’s how this BMW police bike came back to life. After an engine rebuild in the mid-90s, it was decommissioned and put into storage for 18 years. Then Will Starritt of the London motorcycle gear store Urban Rider spotted it—and decided to press the BMW back into service. “The idea was to explore the proliferation of the word ‘oxblood’,” he says. “I’d never heard that word until last year, when we saw several leather products using it as a color description—such as…

    Snow bikes are a great recipe for unbridled hooliganism. Take a dirt bike, fit it with a ski and a track, and hold on tight. But most are built using modern motocross machinery—and that doesn’t appeal to Orion Anthony. Orion lives just north of Whistler in the alpine region of British Columbia, Canada—and spends a great deal of his time exploring the area by snowmobile. He’s also just launched Northern Lights Optics, a luxury eyewear collection that takes cues from early-days mountaineering and motorcycling. “For this new brand,” says Orion, “I wanted to create something…

    Fabio Cardoni is a man after our own hearts. “Steel is more beautiful than plastic, and simplicity is more appealing than complexity,” he says. Sig. Cardoni runs The Black Douglas Motorcycle Company, which makes the vintage-styled machine you see here.

Regular readers may recall that we covered Black Douglas a couple of years ago. We’re revisiting the company because the Sterling has been developed into a significantly better bike, and…

    The Triumph Scrambler’s biggest selling point is its looks. It might not be the strongest contender in the performance department, but it has a nostalgic appeal that few others can match. And it’s easy to upgrade. This stunning Triumph Scrambler was built by Erne’s Euromotos—a dealership and custom shop in Zürich, Switzerland. It’s the perfect blueprint for anyone wanting to transform his or her own Scrambler with performance-based mods. The engine gets a big power boost via larger valves, hotter cams, and a higher compression ratio. To increase airflow, Erne’s…

  • Too Much Too Soon? When to Upgrade to a Bigger Sportbike

    Laura Llovet
    30 Mar 2015 | 12:36 am
    Of course, the answer to the question, when you should upgrade to a bigger sport bike, is subjective. Some people start off on 1000cc motos, and for others it isn’t a problem to hop on to a bigger bike after a few months riding a smaller displacement one. But for anyone who asks me my opinion on the matter, I just tell them my story since it’s the case of too much too soon. I took the MSF course in August of 2011, and soon after purchased a 2009 Kawasaki Ninja 250R in September. It was a clean bike, however it was black.

It's a reminder that in order for a rider to be careful, they need to have the rubber (tires) on the ground in order to be safe. Tires come in all different varieties—race, street, off road. These types of tires also come along with a multitude of options depending on surface type, heat, motorcycle style etc. We previously reviewed the Bridgestone Battle Wing tires, and also had the opportunity to also check out the Trail Wing offering.

Luckily, he still has a passion for the sport itself.

After meeting her in person at the bikeshow in December we’ve been texting for months but this was the first opportunity we had to hook up again. Armed without much of a plan other than “lunch” I was looking forward to spending the day together. Here on Long Island, spring was ceremoniously ushered in with 6 inches of snow. So, instead of doing battle to Manhattan in my car I opted to take the train. The hour+…

    As I mentioned in my first post of this series, I was visiting India for my friend Ganesh’s wedding. After several plane rides and a train ride, we arrived in Erode. His family met us at the train station. They took our bags and piled them into the car. It quickly became clear there wouldn’t be room for the two of us as the bags were piled up to the roof.The family scooter was also there (above pic), so Ganesh jumped on. He was eager to ride. I was a bit skeptical since we were both tired from traveling so long. He started it up, and I climbed on the back. I was slightly worried about not…

    India is full of motorcycles! They are much cheaper than a car, great in heavy traffic, and can be parked what seemed like almost anywhere. They didn’t appear to be much fun in the rain. When I was in Chennai, it rained quite hard several days. The roads quickly flooded and people were riding around with their foot pegs dragging in the water. Most riders use a motorcycle as their only transportation, but there are those who also just ride for fun. The ones who ride for fun tend to have more money to be able to afford a second vehicle. The motorcycles were much smaller than in the USA. Most…

    The traffic rules in India are quite different from those in the USA. For starters, they drive on the left side of the road instead of the right side. There is also a ton of motorcycles on the road. I would guess at least 50% of the vehicles are motorcycles. Painted lines were quite rare. They just made lanes as necessary.In the cities, there was usually a concrete divider between the different directions with regular gaps for making turns and u-turns. The rules seemed to be rather simple. Stay to the left most of the time; sometimes people would drive/ride on the wrong side of the road to…

    The roads in India reminded me of Malaysia, but more chaotic and many in much poorer condition. In India, they drive on the left side of the road. This made crossing the street for me a bit of a challenge at first. I kept looking the wrong way and nearly getting run over. They also walk on the left side as well which caused me some hassle walking around the malls and cities as I nearly plowed into people; I was on the wrong side. Many of roads didn’t have lines painted on them. Lanes were created by the vehicles as needed. At first it confused me, but then I came to enjoy the freedom of no…

    Before I went to India, I had no idea there were mountains in the south. I thought they were only in the northern part. I was pleasantly surprised. I really enjoy mountains, and the Western Ghats near the border of Tamil Nadu and Kerala didn’t disappoint. The mountain air was cool and crisp (60-70F) compared to the oppressive heat further inland (80-100F). The Western Ghats top out just under 9000 feet which makes them respectable mountains in my book.My first trip to the mountains was in a hired car. We left early in the morning from Coimbatore and started driving to Munnar. The Western…

    There’s brand loyalty, and then there’s brand loyalty. Octogenarian Harry Adler has owned no fewer than 55 Hondas since he began riding in 1963. Forty-eight of those he purchased from the same dealer, Horner Honda in Salisbury, MD. Currently the 84 year old owns eight motorcycles, all Hondas, as well as some Honda power equipment. […]

    Most motorcyclists own multiple pairs of gloves as (perhaps more than any other piece of motorcycle gear) gloves tend to be more focused to their specific use. In fact, I never go on tour without bringing at least two pairs, one for the best-case weather scenario and one for the worst. The Laguna Gloves from […]

    Siberia. 13 million square kilometres of the most sparsely populated land on Earth and as it turns out, home to one of the coolest custom Honda CB550's around. Roman Molchanov runs the workshop 'Hammerbike Customs' in the frozen heart of Siberia (that may not be an accurate statement, but it sounds cool) where he services customer bikes and builds world class custom motorcycles. In a country where custom workshops are as rare as people and spare parts are as readily available as leprechauns Roman's built a custom CB550 that's as cool as the snow surrounding the…

    Two french guys, a workshop in Hong Kong and one iconic German bike. Lifestyle brand and custom motorcycle workshop Angry Lane is the brainchild of brothers Ben and G Barras. Together they produce custom leather goods and clothing, distribute Japanese made custom parts and of course, build custom motorcycles. Amongst the plethora of modern sports bikes on Hong Kong island the guys discovered an original condition '87 BMW R80S. Venturing away from their usual Bobber/Chopper penchant the brothers decided to try their hand at a Cafe Racer build and, as I'm sure you'll agree,…

    If you've been following Return of the Cafe Racers for a while you'll have figured out I'm a fan of post apocalyptic celluloid, especially that which involves zombies. AMC's 'The Walking Dead' is of course the perfect example of exactly that and what makes the show even more attractive to me is the addition of a character who rides custom motorcycles. I am of course referring to Daryl (Norman Reedus) the crossbow wielding bad boy who for the first few seasons of the show got around on a ratty old Triumph Chopper. Now in it's fifth season The Walking Dead has seen…

    No it doesn't have a headlight. No it doesn't have indicators, a rearview mirror or a stop light. No it's not going to be comfortable for long rides and no you can't have a go. This is the 'Triumph Salt Racer'. A purpose built land speed record breaker (fingers crossed). It's the work of a few local geniuses here in Melbourne who have combined their talents, resources and know how to build a land speed bike with its sights set firmly on setting a new DLRA record at Lake Gardiner in South Australia at the end of this month. Cloaked in carbon fibre and boasting a…

    I will be the first to admit I'm hopelessly nostalgic. So when I come across a story of a father and son working together on a custom build I'm instantly interested...especially when the result is as cool as this tidy little CB350 Cafe Racer. After working on car projects for years with his Dad, Blake and his "old man" decided to apply their skills to a two wheeled project. This is the story of how one forgotten Honda found a new lease of life in the hands of two generations of custom builders.Read more »Return of the Cafe…

  • Dress Up Your Boring Exhaust Pipes

    Ryan
    24 Mar 2015 | 2:22 pm
    The exhaust is a focal point for any motorcycle, but more often than not, the stock pipes are pretty boring looking.  That’s why there are so many options for aftermarket exhausts out there.  Swapping out your exhaust can be a costly upgrade to make, especially if you’re just looking for looks and not performance.  But fear not, you can dress up those boring pipes that are already on your bike and create a whole new look.  Plus, it will most likely cost you a lot less than a new set of pipes so you can spend more on gas. Another plus side of dressing up your pipes is that you’re…

Just like a car, oil maintenance is an essential part to keep your motorcycle running smoothly.

  • Is Lane Splitting Safe? Safer?

    Michael Padway
    25 Mar 2015 | 8:09 am
    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…
  • Motorcycle Riding Tips: Getting A Knee Down

    Michael Padway
    27 Feb 2015 | 9:10 am
    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.

    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…

We know that motorcycles lean.  After all, that’s the reason we ride.  If you think about it, this means that if we ride in a circle, the center of mass (that’s us) rides in a smaller circle than the contact patches on the tires. {What??  OK, to explain.  since you are leaning, you are to the inside of the motorcycle tire contact patch.  Therefore, if you continue to lean while you ride in a circle, your body is inside the…
  • Do Daytime Running Lights Make Motorcycles Safer?

    Michael Padway

    We all know how often I have to listen to a careless driver claiming that they didn’t see the motorcycle.  This ridiculous claim is made by drivers who are texting, deep in discussion with passengers, practically asleep, or simply not paying attention. In reality, if you look at a motorcycle, you can’t help but see it.  They aren’t invisible. The most visible part of a motorcycle, at least in the day, is the daytime running light that has been required for the last 30 years. Every time the motorcycle runs, the headlight must be on. As Dr. Phil would say, “How’s…

    I was repairing a few PGM units for Yuri(IT) the other day and came across a unit that seems to be a JHA Kit part. I have repaired lots of PGM units for Honda Rs250 bikes though this one seems quite rare so I thought of sharing some pics.The code on the plastic cover is "NK4K" and I'm not sure I've seen this model again.On the top and on the aluminum side, "JHA-EA1" is engraved on it.

    Kevin Landry
    23 Mar 2015 | 12:11 pm
    If you rode all winter, then your bike should be ready for spring but if your motorcycle spent the entire winter in the garage or some other storage facility, then it’s far from ready to just get and go. How exactly should you prepare your motorcycle for spring? Below is a checklist you should use every time before you hit the road on your bike: Check Your Stands You want your stands to work properly whether it’s a kickstand, side or center stand. They have to be secure to the bike. You don’t ever want to be the guy whose kickstand falls off the bike and you end up leaning it against…

    So you have been involved in an accident, there was property damage and you suffered some serious injuries. You have barely even recovered from the shock of the accident yet doctors, police officers and insurance companies are already bombarding you with tough questions about what happened.

  • What Happens At A Personal Injury Lawsuit Trial?

    Kevin Landry

    If you have filed a personal injury lawsuit, you might be wondering what happens at trial. A trial is the most high-profile phase of a personal injury case and in most instances, it never gets to that. Most injury claims are resolved before trial. When Should You File A Personal Injury Lawsuit? You should file a personal injury lawsuit when you and the insurance adjuster fail to come to a compromised settlement payment where you are both satisfied. Sometimes you may fail to reach a compromise when the negotiation process breaks down. Break down happens when the adjuster doesn’t think your…
  • What Are The Stages Of A Personal Injury Case

    There are certain steps that you must take in a personal injury claim before you are eventually compensated. If you don’t know what these steps are, you might easily get confused. I have highlighted the stages of a personal injury case but before we get to that let’s discuss what makes a good case. What Makes A Good Personal Injury Case? Liability Must Be Clear If you want to build a strong case, it must be very clear who is liable for your injuries. In a product liability case, for example, it has to be very clear that the manufacturer produced a product with a defect. Damages You must…

  • Shed the winter blues and get your Harley ready for spring

    22 Feb 2015 | 4:55 pm
    Winter may still have a firm grip on parts of the country but riding season is just around the corner. Carburetor accelerator pump diaphragms and float needle valves typically suffer following a winter's hibernation or prolonged exposure to fuel additives. Now is the perfect time to start getting your bike in shape for your spring riding. We recommend cleaning out your fuel system if your bike has been in storage or not in regular service over the winter. This includes cleaning out the fuel valve filter, draining the tank of any old fuel or stabilzer, and for carburetor models a thorough…

    As motorcycle riders, we know we’re vulnerable on the road. No steel or aluminium surrounding us, no seat-belts, no airbags. Just a thin layer of leather and our wits to protect us, so knowledge is key and knowing where on the road we’re most likely to be involved in an accident is one way to stay safe. The most dangerous situation for a rider isn’t carving through a twisty mountain road, but the common intersection. By far and away the most dangerous location for a motorcycle rider is at an intersection, whether it be in the city or the country. One European study found…
