    SUBTLE. Restrained. Understated. These words are just some of the words that have never been used to describe the Victory Magnum. But in a week the firm is going to launch an even more extreme version called the Magnum X-1.The normal Magnum bagger already sports a 21-inch front wheel and oxymoronic 'custom' paint as standard, including schemes such as 'Plasma Lime and Silver', boldly experimenting with the boundary between flamboyant and garish. So when the firm started to tease the fact it would be launching the higher-spec Magnum X-1 at the Full Moon Saloon Launch…

  • Top 5 Yamaha XJR1300 Customs

    Chris Hunter
    28 Feb 2015 | 9:01 am
    The big news on the custom scene right now is the launch of the revised Yamaha XJR1300. The old bruiser has been revitalized and repackaged into two variants: a standard version with wide bars and a seat big enough for two, and a Racer with clip-ons, a small fairing and front fender, and a solo seat. There was never anything wrong with the ‘old’ XJR1300, but there’s plenty to like about the new one (below). The styling has been tidied up, with a slimmer tank that exposes more of the engine. Handling is good, with fully adjustable suspension and Öhlins shocks. Build quality is flawless,…

    Every year, hundreds of custom motorcycle lovers descend on Portland, Oregon, for the One Motorcycle Show. This year Wayne Corbett and Gabrielle Jones of One Down Four Up made the trip, and left with a trophy. They trekked north from their headquarters in Redding, California, to show off Gabrielle’s new ride: this stunning 1975 Yamaha DT250. “We originally bought the bike for Gabrielle to turn into her daily driver,” explains Wayne. “But we sat on it for about a year, waiting to find the right inspiration.” “Then we ran into an old flat track racer around town.

  • Happy Landings: Clockwork’s CB750 custom

    Samuel Guertin used to spend his days wrenching on choppers—the kind that fly. But after a decade working as a helicopter mechanic, he decided that customizing cars and bikes was more fulfilling. So he changed his flight path and Clockwork Motorcycles was born, with a base in the countryside half an hour east of Montréal, Canada. This CB750 custom is called Fury, and it’s Clockwork’s fourth build. “When I found the donor—a 1971 model—it was pretty funny to look at,” explains Samuel. “It was a weird, failed attempt at a gothic bobber-slash-chopper. It deserved better…

    The custom motorcycle scene is a fascinating but often uneasy battle between form and function. Occasionally the two worlds collide in spectacular style—and that’s what happens when you buy a Triumph street tracker from Florida-based Bonneville Performance. Owner Bill Gately also runs an AMA Pro Flat Track team, which is sponsored by Triumph. So he knows how to make a bike go very fast. For between $24,000 and $26,500, Bill will sell you one of his road-legal Street Trackers, with your choice of setup and performance package. Yes, it’s Ducati Panigale money—but it’s also money…
  • Indy Mile: Gasolina’s custom SR400 Tracker

    Wesley Reyneke
    21 Feb 2015 | 9:01 am
    In Melbourne, Australia—on the Yarra River’s shorefront—you’ll find an outfit called Gasolina. It’s an unusual but very appealing business: a restaurant-cum-motorcycle design studio that doubles up as an event venue. A few months ago, Gasolina played host to Yamaha Australia when they relaunched the SR400. The Yamaha guys must have had a good time, because shortly afterwards they delivered a fresh SR400 to Gasolina’s chief designer, Carl Cerra. Carl has twenty years in automotive design under his belt, so he was the perfect candidate to pen some custom designs for the SR.

    As of late, Royal Enfield has been in the news for all the good reasons. The Indian owned British-marque is grabbing the limelight and chewing into newsprint for their massive expansion plans, and of course, for their exciting launches up ahead. However, now we have got a hold of a piece of news that speaks of an all-original 1A Interceptor bike from the 1960’s. To the uninitiated, the Interceptor was made by Royal Enfield from 1960 to 1970 and during that period they even tinkered with the powerplant—kicking it up to a 750cc unit. The 1A Interceptor was launched back in 1967 and is still…

Instead of getting their bike design team deployed on the project, Yamaha decided to do something outright eccentric. One day, the chap in charge of assigning the team picked himself up during the board meeting and said, “Hey, don’t we have a couple of boffins who design pianos and guitars? How about we get them to design a bike?” And the rest of the suits in the room nodded in agreement. READ…

    Dokter tidak yakin apa yang menjadi penyebab kanker kelenjar getah bening non-Hodgkin. Limfoma Non-Hodgkin terjadi ketika tubuh Anda memproduksi terlalu banyak limfosit - sejenis sel darah putih. Biasanya, limfosit melalui siklus hidup yang dapat diprediksi. Limfosit lama mati, dan tubuh Anda menciptakan yang baru untuk menggantikan mereka. Dalam limfoma atau kanker kelenjar getah bening non-Hodgkin, limfosit Anda tidak mati, tapi terus tumbuh dan membelah. Sehingga membuat kelebihan pasokan limfosit ke kelenjar getah bening Anda, menyebabkan mereka membengkak. Limfoma Non-Hodgkin dapat…

    7 Feb 2015 | 11:00 pm
    As we all know, Suzuki Indonesia has struggled to gain popularity as well as its market share for its maxi scooter, Burgman 200. It seems like the Burgman 200 won’t be able to survive in 150 ~ 250 cc maxi scooter battle in Indonesian market. It’s withered before even got the chance to show its existence….. Suzuki’s production capacity is still below its other Japanese counterparts. And in Burgman’s case, Suzuki still imports it from Thailand which implies to its higher price tag due to the CBU’s higher tax charge. Burgman ‘s not so competitive price…

Nihilnya petugas membuat doi makin pede. Tidak hanya itu….angin yang kencang ternyata tidak membuatnya risih. Dengan baju ala kadar cenderung terbuka mempertontonkan lekuk body….indikasi jelas, lady biker ini memang ingin diperhatikan… Bagi para ABG….mungkin kondisi tersebut akan menarik perhatian. Dengan memakai celana pendek plus pamer muka….ajang show off berhasil dilakukan.

    Over the last year, I have been working to reduce the amount of stuff I have. One of the ways I do that is to look at things I have not been using. This sounds easy, but seems hard for some reason. It feels easy to ignore things. The old “out of sight out of mind” line seems appropriate. I have five bikes in the garage and now two cars. Moving vehicles around can be a bit tricky! The motorcycle high jack shown below is one of those things I bought and thought I would get a lot of use out of. I’ve had it for a couple years now, and I think I only managed to use it twice. I’ve been…

It’s enclosed (no rain, wind, or snow) which is a major plus. It looks to be a double-wide parking stall in the back of the ramp. It took them a few months to get back to me because they forgot they had this spot. Apparently, no one had asked for…

    This winter has been a strange one. First it’s cold around –15F then 35F then back down to –10F and back up to 40F again. I’m not complaining. The warmer temps and lighter snow have been very pleasant. Last year’s winter was brutal compared to this year’s winter. I took the SV650 out for a short ride since the temps were around 40F. I tried to get near some of the frozen lakes, but the parking lots near them were full of thick ice and hard pack snow. I don’t like riding on either of those two surfaces, so I found one that was only marginally covered. I rode for about an hour.

The visceral feeling as I rolled on the throttle. The exhilaration! It felt like flying very close to the ground. All my senses were awake and present. Wow, I missed this bike so much! I rode around for just over twenty miles. It flew by. I visited all the twisty roads near my house and several of the lakes. I’m amazed how nice it was to ride again. The roads were mostly dry and some of the grass is even starting to get green. I…

What makes this particular build even more unique, and is perhaps the reason it's so different, is that it was built by a guy who usually turn spanners on pedal powered bikes.

    Breyer Law Offices
    3 Feb 2015 | 2:08 pm
    Being involved in a Paradise motorcycle collision isn’t something you think about until it happens to you. In fact, you don’t even consider the fact that you are at risk for being injured or killed every time you get on your bike. It’s hard to think about because it isn’t pleasant to think about, and when other people bring up the risk, they usually blame the things you do, or the fact that you are a motorcyclist for the risk in the first place. A skilled attorney with a background in handling motorcycle cases won’t do that because they know there’s more to every accident than…

  • Go Ape Crazy: South Dakota Governor Pulls Down Ape Hanger Law

    Eric Ellis
    27 Feb 2015 | 3:25 pm
    You can now fly your hands as high as you want while riding your motorcycle in South Dakota. State Governor, Dennis Daugaard, has signed off on Senate Bill 85 striking down SD codified law 32-20-3, which made it a petty offense to operate a motorcycle with handlebars that put the grips at or above shoulder height. The signing of SB 85 allows riders to roll with 16-inch ape hangers, 20-inch apes, or whatever size handlebars they want without worrying about getting hounded by law enforcement.

    The adventure touring motorcycle segment has had its hand on the throttle as of late with more and more people realizing the fun they can have by splitting their riding time between on and off-road riding. While bikes like the KTM 1190 Adventure, Yamaha Super Tenere, and Suzuki V-Strom 1000 are pretty awesome, they are also quite a bit heavier and bulkier than a dirt bike. Sure you may not want to take a 600 mile on/-off-road trip on your YZ 450, but wouldn’t it be great to make it street legal so you could bop around town? If your state will allow it, it’d probably be cheaper to add…

I almost ran into opposing traffic my first turn out, and by the time I got home, I was taking turns so wide that I ran 6ft through the neighbors front lawn. What a trip. After that, I started riding everywhere I could. Rain or shine, I was going to work, to visit family/friends, and out with friends to the bar. Man I thought I was cool doing that. I…

    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…

    Number One Son turned up at the house the other day in new leathers. Except… after about a minute I realized they weren’t new leathers. He’d sent them away to be cleaned and, now they were back, they’re like a new suit. He’d got his second-hand Wolf leathers suit off eBay back when he passed  [Read full post...] The post Kit Refresh – Scrubbers Leathers appeared first on MotoGoLoco.

    You may recall that my friend Hogsback Harry had decided to get a second bike for the summer’s planned Spain trip – but, being Harry, was expecting to find a mint, low-mile Pan European, recently serviced and with a full history and brand-new tyres, for less than £1500. You might not be entirely surprised to  [Read full post...] The post Harry’s no closer appeared first on MotoGoLoco.

  • Motorcycle Recall: ALL 2013 Can-Am Spyder RT for FIRE issues.

    27 Feb 2015 | 5:30 am
    In an earlier post I made mention of the fact that more than a few Spyder owners have had their bikes catch fire. Bombardier, the manufacture, has dealt with that issue in the past but are now doing it again. Bombardier has voluntarily reported to the US Government that all the 5165 Spyders WORLDWIDE built in 2013 have an issue where “Under very hot ambient conditions and low speed riding, the temperature in the engine compartment may rise and thereby increase the risk of a skin burn or a vehicle fire”. Bombardier has sent owners of the RT letters explaining the problem and informing them…
  • 2015 Timonium Motorcycle Show

    21 Feb 2015 | 9:32 am
    The number one thing that I noticed immediately was that attendance was up. I arrived about the same time as last year and was parked much further away. It was also easily noticeable that I was dodging more folks as I weaved around each of the displays. The second noticeable thing was the number of vendors and the addition of venues (Motorcycling Touring and Toy Hauler RVs). The people running the show really stepped up their game and I really enjoyed the new additions.  Here is a “small” list of the bike vendors in attendance. (I did not remember seeing BSA and URAL though,…

  • Year round motorcycle riding…not so much for 2015

    15 Feb 2015 | 1:19 pm
      The Grandsons out on the motorcycles Well I wrote to soon on my year round motorcycle riding accomplishment. In 2014 I was able to ride in every month of the year. Wellllllll 2015 is already finished for this effort. While there were a few days that were “reasonable” as far a riding here in Northern Virginia I had other priorities on those days and did not get out on two wheels. For example on January the first I could have rode in a “Polar Bear” ride with the NOVA MC but elected to spend it with my grandsons watching them learn to ride their new mini-bikes. It’s all about…

  • 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…
  • High Flow Fuel Valves

    8 Jul 2014 | 3:31 am
    Providing an adequate supply of fuel to your stock, aftermarket, or well tuned carburetor is crucial to achieving maximum performance out of your Harley motorcycle. Stock petcock valves can be restrictive and starve the float bowl of the high flow requirement often needed during hard acceleration. Removing any restriction will guarantee that enough gas will be available when you actually need it. High Flow Fuel Valves from Accel are now available through CV Performance. These replacement petcock valves increase flow by up to 40% when combined with a 5/16 fuel hose and our…
  • Harley Carburetor Tuning 101: The 88 Sportster Needle

    30 May 2014 | 6:03 pm
    Harley tuners, mechanics, and those doing their own wrenching have long known about using the 1988 Sportster needle for tuning the Harley CV carburetor.  History Harley Davidson motorcycles have a long history of carburetors used on their models over the years, but none as popular as the CV carburetor. Introduced in 1988 on Sportster models to replace the Keihin "butterfly" carburetor, the CV also from Keihin introduced a vacuum actuated slide and needle to regulate fuel delivery. As engine loads change the slide moves up or down allowing the suspended needle to meter fuel passing around…

    Here is an interesting video of how the v-twin engine is made in the Harley Davidson factory. It's amazing how easy this assembly seems when produced on an assembly line. Anyone who has ever built or rebuilt a Harley engine in their garage can appreciate how much more difficult this is when using standard shop tools and your bare hands.
  • Harley Brake Pad Replacement

    31 Mar 2014 | 10:00 am
    An often overlooked item when preparing for the spring riding season are brakes. Replacing your Harley brake pads will assure you have the stopping power for whatever the road throws at you.  Well maintained motorcycle brakes, especially on a heavy Harley-Davidson are crucial. At the first sign of major wear you should always service your brakes. Installing new brake pads can be a simple procedure when following the instructions in your service manual and is accomplished with basic tools. Be sure to "bed-in" new brake pads after installation for proper break in. Check out the following…

    28 Feb 2015 | 4:28 pm
    Finding a way to shield your eyes from the strong glare of the sun hasn’t always been a simple process. The simplest no doubt is wearing sunglasses, but they don’t always fit well inside a helmet (or they constantly need adjusting while riding, meaning you need to flip the visor up to do so). Some helmets include a flip down visor, but there has been some concern (without any factual evidence, mind you) that making room for a flip down visor comprises helmet safety. Of course, you could always carry both a tinted and clear visor, but that’s probably the worst solution of…

But we’d like more of them in various shapes, sizes and capacities. Alas, this beautiful machine you see below is not a production model from Honda but a build by French dealer CBO.

The actor is part of the 24th 007 movie Spectre and was injured while shooting for a scene in the DB10.

    It has been 10 years since the Bugatti Veyron entered our lives, and after making 450 of these masterpieces, the company has ended the production. Bugatti Veyron made its way into the automotive space way before it began production.  The car was the brainchild of Bugatti, and was under development since 1996, when VW bought over the company. The final design was agreed upon in 2001, four years before the car hit production. Its claim to fame was that it was the fastest production road car, and only 300 of them would ever be made. The company finished selling its 300th car in 2011, and due to…
