  • Reise Custom: Modding the BMW R100 RS

    Back in 70s, the BMW R100 RS was one of the coolest motorcycles you could buy. It was elegant, predictably expensive, and accomplished at its prime task: eating up the miles in absolute comfort. It became the weapon of choice for Motorradfahrer wanting to travel from one end of Europe to the other, and even appeared in the TV series ‘The Return of The Saint.’ A well-maintained R100 RS is still a superb touring machine, three decades on. But visually, it hasn’t aged too well. The seven-piece fairing and the wedge-shaped tail unit look more than a little ungainly. It…

    LCR HONDA'S Jack Miller has apologized to his team-mate Cal Crutchlow after he crashed taking out the Brit at the British Grand Prix on Sunday.Heavy rain led to a delay to proceedings on Sunday at Silverstone as it was declared a wet race at the very last minute. Miller, on his Open Honda, was determined to make the most of it as a wet race tends to come down to rider skill rather than the machinery.This proved to be true in the case of the Australian as he found himself battling with the factory riders and for a potential podium position until disaster struck.Attempting to keep Monster…

    The journey of life continually surprises me.  I’ve learned to expect the unexpected.  Sometimes we can clearly see the path which we tread onwardly on.  Other times we slowly pick our way through the darkness.  Each of us chooses the route we take.  Granted there are factors not always known to us.  How we react to those factors determines where our journeys carry us. Sometimes in our journeys we can see the hilltops rising before us.  Other times we are so deep in the valleys of life that we can’t even see our feet below us.  Traveling upward and onward we often slip and…

    Driving home tonight I was enjoying IIIrd Tyme Out singing Erase The Miles. Feeling the results of the 3,000 plus miles I’ve travelled this week had me thinking.  What if I could erase all the miles that I’ve travelled? What if I could take away all the pain? What if I could take away all the bad choices?  What would that mean? Upon pondering all those questions I came to but one conclusion.  No matter how long and painful all those miles were, if I erased even one I wouldn’t be where I am today.  I’ve made more than my share of poor choices through the years.

    Yamaha’s XJR 1300 is proof that, once in a while, major manufacturers pay attention. And get it right. Now celebrating its 20th anniversary, the iconic street bruiser was re-released this year with a refreshed look and a layout that encourages customization—thanks to the prolific Yard Built program. Driving the movement is Yamaha’s European product manager, Shun Miyazawa. Shun and his team have now turned their attention to Taiwan, and one of our favorite builders: Rough Crafts‘ Winston Yeh. Known for his edgy Harley builds, Winston’s trademark aesthetic is tough,…

  • Into the woods: A Triumph Bonneville Scrambler

    Wesley Reyneke
    29 Aug 2015 | 10:01 am
    Under the hood, there’s not much difference between the Triumph Bonneville and Scrambler. Other than their firing intervals (the Scrambler has a 270-degree crank for extra ‘thump’), the bikes are mainly separated by styling cues. Which means that, with a few well-placed mods, a stock Bonnie can be made as dirt-worthy as a Scrambler. Or more so—as is the case with this fire-road-blitzing number from our favorite Swedish surf-moto crew, 6/5/4 Motors. The Stockholm shop’s client was bored with his stock 2007 Bonneville, and wanted something more suitable to off-road…

    Peter Rowland races vintage motocross and dirt track in Australia. And when he’s not cracking the throttle wide open, he likes to build specials using gear lying around in his shed. This super-slick Yamaha RD350 is Peter’s latest production. What makes it even more amazing—given that even high-end pro builders often farm out tricky jobs—is that Peter handled every aspect of the build with his own hands. “I enjoy the challenge of turning a bunch of old parts into a race bike,” Peter tells us, “and I try to do it on a budget.” The RD350 cost around…
  • Hollywood Harley: A Sportster 883 Dirt Tracker

    The list of manufacturers putting out scramblers seems to grow daily. But the memo hasn’t reached Milwaukee: Harley-Davidson have yet to jump on the mud-flinging bandwagon. If they do—not that it’s likely—the Sportster would be the obvious candidate. It’s the lightest of an otherwise porky bunch, has a punchy motor, and responds well to fettling. So it’s becoming increasingly popular with custom shops building dirt-worthy Harleys. This brawny yet elegant 883 Sportster comes from Clint Hanaway at Thunder Road Customs, and makes for an excellent blueprint. Sunset…

    There have been times, in some of my rides, where I would have parked next to the edge of the road and I would have tried to capture a view of the heights below, but usually unsuccessfully.Sure, sometimes, I'd have a climbable hillside on the other side of the road where I could gain height to hopefully see the valley bottom below, but again, it usually didn't work out.I needed more height to shoot from....Today, I rode out to Castlewood Canyon Park, the nearest place where one can briefly park one's vehicle alongside the road and peer down to where a dam used to be.  It's not a very…

    The fires raging out west of Colorado have caused smoke filled skies for us here.  I've not seen the Front Range mountains for the last few days and it's not getting any better.  Hence the title, since it appears as if I am in Kansas.I rode out this evening hoping for some of the clearing of the skies forecasted by the weather guessers but it was not to be.60 miles of riding later, none of the usual spots gave views of either distant Pikes Peak or the nearby Front Range Mountains, even nearby Mount Evans was invisible behind a gray hazy sky.As the sun set,  I stopped briefly…

    The 1927 H-D FHA racer, with its racing sidecar, little more than a padded platform.  A remarkable original-condition racer from the end of the first Golden Age of American racingIt happens every year; an ultra-rare motorcycle is loosed from the cold, dead hands of a collector, and the 'Net is abuzz with the certainty that THIS, finally, is the Million Dollar Baby.  Some odd mix of voyeurism and knowier-than-thou-ness compels us to excitedly proclaim the staggering rise in blue chip bike prices, while making a show of decrying the very same thing.  The truth is, very few people…

    1 Sep 2015 | 2:11 pm
    After the seemingly mandatory delay the Manx Grand Prix race programme finally roared into life at 2pm. The delay had been caused by rain early in the day that required some hours to dry from the majority of the track. There were wet areas under the trees in several areas; notably Ramsey Hairpin to Waterworks and at the Governor’s Dip. The course is in dire need of some serious attention to the trackside trees that have been allowed to grow unabated for the past 20 years. Not only do they cut out light and prevent the track drying evenly, they present an unnecessary hazard to the riders.

    As the custom bike scene becomes increasingly crowded, builders constantly try bend, break and make something that’s going to turn people’s heads. There’s genre-defying builds, customs built on increasingly unusual base models and all manner of gaudy paint schemes and odd angles of fabrication designed to get exposure on websites like Pipeburn. Because of this, sometimes you need a build that’s just straightforward enough to remind you how good a simple, tight café racer can be.

So it was no surprise when they got a call from a Triumph Bonneville aficionado who had a 2001 model he wanted built to scrambler spec. So confident was the owner, he gave Maria no design brief but having previously built a Spitfire-themed Bonnie the boys had the bright idea to again follow the World War II angle. Only this time with something from the other side of the Channel, a German-themed military spec vehicle that goes by the…

    I woke up and checked out of the hotel early. I wanted to enjoy a day of riding twisty roads while everyone else was at work. My plan worked. The roads were remarkably empty on a Monday morning. I left Dubuque and started riding north towards home. The rolling hills and windy roads were very enjoyable. The farms looked so picturesque. I loosely followed the Great River Road through the driftless area. This area was supposedly not touched by glaciers and as such is more rugged with steep cliffs, bluffs, deep valleys. All of which mean twisty fun motorcycle roads. Then great views like this…

    Sunday is race day. I arrived early to get a good parking spot and to watch the warm up sessions. Again, thanks to my very generous friend William, I had a great parking spot next to the museum which made my escape after the races much easier. I enjoyed watching the warm up near the back straight. One of my favorite parts is after the session ends, the riders stop and practice their starts. It is a great chance to see them a bit closer up in race form. Above is from MotoGP. Fortunately, this helicopter wasn’t needed during the races.

This trike was very unusual. The coffin was functional… Some of the paint jobs were just so detailed. It was really impressive. This sportbike even had the grooves on the tires painted.

Not so on Saturday morning. It just seemed like an interesting park. Need more time to explore. I started the day by visiting the Suzuki photographer. I did this in 2013 as well. He seemed to remember me, so we had a nice time chatting while he took some nice pictures of my SV650.

I arrived in time to catch one of the last practices of Moto3. A few blocks before I arrived, I could hear the bikes at the track. The sound of those 250cc engines screaming down the straights. It is a good noise. I quickly parked and took off my gear to get near the track to watch them carve the corners. They are impressive to watch. I wish I was half as talented as they are.

A while back I noticed he posted a photo of a rather tidy looking CX500 on his Instagram feed and had to find out more. As it turned out the bike belonged to Cam's brother Tristan who painstakingly pieced the CX500 together over 14 long months, using limited funds and shed time to get it done. Cam snapped off these great photos and was kind enough to coax the story of it's creation out of Tristan for you all to enjoy.

The K1600 is what BMW refer to as a "high-class tourer". On the BMW Motorrad website they use phrases like "maximum riding pleasure" and "luxury freed of ballast", but beneath all that ergonomic excess and load bearing bodywork (capable carrying half a ton of passengers and gear!) is a beast of a bike.

    There’s something that a lot of riders realize when they go to rallies like Sturgis and Daytona.  “It’s hot.  It’s packed.  And my bike is starting to overheat!” These hot summer months are not the friendliest to air-cooled V-Twin motorcycles.  Then add on slow moving rides and traffic jams and you have a recipe for disaster.  The heat is going to build fast if you’re unable to get on the open road.  And we all know that that can lead to serious engine damage and failure. If you ride in these stop-and-go conditions a lot, you may want to seriously consider adding an…

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…

In fact, commercial truck drivers are held to a higher legal standard than other drivers are. So if you have been in an accident with a commercial truck, you might be entitled to compensation.

    Triumph Motorcycles is facing a hefty bill of at least $1.9 million after failing to report safety issues to the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that they were aware of for more than a year. The manufacturer also failed to submit documents to the NHTSA surrounding injury claims and progress reports on repairs to recalled motorcycles.

  • Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin Pricing for USA Announced

    EBF
    1 Sep 2015 | 3:49 am
    Not long after pricing for Australia was released, Honda USA has confirmed pricing for the CRF1000L, also known as the reborn Africa Twin. As we’ve previously reported, only the base model and the top of the range model will initially be sold in the US – which means if you want ABS you have to get it with the DCT system. Thankfully, there doesn’t seem be a big price premium to pay. Pricing is set at $12,999 for the base model and $13,699 for the DCT version with ABS. Given a difference of only $700 we’d expect the DCT model to be the big seller. Like Australia, pricing…
  • All New Honda CB190R – A New Design Direction For Honda?

    EBF
    31 Aug 2015 | 4:21 pm
    Honda in China have announced the release of an all new machine, the Honda CB190R, a naked single cylinder motorcycle. And while such a bike won’t make it to western markets we are curious to see if the design language used for this Chinese built motorcycle will translate into future Honda updates. The Honda CB190R is definitely a more angular machine than previous Honda models and makes the current CB300F rather tame looking in comparison. The headlights are very reminiscent of those found on the Kawasaki Z800 and Z1000 and are slanted at a rather extreme angle towards the front of the…

    A new Kickstarter campaign by Phoenix Racing Stands claim that their design is the most advanced motorcycle stand in the industry. While it’s hard to describe a new configuration of what is essentially welded steel and caster wheels as ground breaking their design is extremely clever and versatile, so much so that it the best combination of stand and storage solution we’ve seen. As per their campaign, the Phoenix Racing Stand takes a slightly different approach to lifting your motorcycle than other stands on the market.

  • Bosch and Honda Working on new Motorcycle Airbag Systems

    EBF
    27 Aug 2015 | 2:42 am
    We’ve seen recently that both Dainese and Alpinestars are getting serious about promoting airbag jackets for riders. But they no doubt have their limitations. They have to be charged and in the case of Dainese’s offering needs to be integrated with the bike itself. Hence why its good to see that two recent patents point the way to the potential for more motorcycles with built in airbags. Such devices wouldn’t be the first – Honda released their Gold Wing almost a decade ago with an optional airbag and still sells it with that option today. It’s no surprise then…

    Not so long ago, motorcycle stunt rider Robbie Maddison rode his motocross bike in the ocean, creating a video sensation all over the world. Now, cars are not known to be driven in water. These four-wheeled machines are driven on the tarmac, unless they are amphibious in nature. In line with this, a four-wheeler has just recently done the honors, by defying the laws of physics. An international magazine called RC Car Action voted the Traxxas Slash 4×4 as the best electric truck for the year of 2014.
