Unfortunately, my buddy Rennie Scaysbrook was unable to come away with first place at this year’s Pikes Peak International Hill Climb on his KTM 1290 Super Duke R. Just 0.7 seconds separated him from Carlin Dunne, who won on a Ducati Multistrada 1260 Pikes Peak. But the reason I’m bringing this all to your attention is actually because of who …

Every year, Brad Boyle Motorsports hosts some private BBQs to raise funds for the Boys Republic. Earlier this year, Meguiar’s was given permission to shoot some of Brad’s incredible collection, and, well…you need to see it for yourself.
Motorcycle.com has discovered that Honda has recently filed and registered some designs with the Japanese intellectual property office that look an awful lot like the rebirth of the CBX. Who knows when (or if) it’s coming, but it’s fun to dream!
Petrolicious has a history of making some fantastic videos, but they’re usually focused around automobiles. This time around we get a profile of Dan Untura, who runs Escobar Motors out of Moldovia.
A rancher in Idaho has built a sidecar to move his horse around with a Yamaha Venture. I’m not sure how else to explain this, but I’ve also got an amusing short video for you to check out.
Ural’s got a cute little video to tap into World Cup fever with some sidecar-based soccer action. There’s less sidecar-on-sidecar action than I expected, but it’s still worth a minute of your time.
Last month I featured a Silver Jubilee Bonnie that was still “new in crate”. Well, that status has since changed as the owner (who acquired it after 15 bids on eBay up to $24,100) has taken it out of the crate. According to this post on Reddit, “the plans are to ride it around the US randomly“. Consider me surprised!
This Sunday, Pikes Peak will be conquered by a bunch of machines as part of the legendary International Hill Climb. Those of you that can’t make it out the event in person can check it out live online.
Vy and I are finally back from our trip around Spain, which means I’ve got a LOT of photos to go through. Thanks to all of you for your suggestions on what we should see, including the Museu Moto Barcelona. Unfortunately, when we arrived at the museum, we found out that it had been closed since October of 2017. The …
After years of teasing, it’s finally happening – Indian is releasing a production version of the FTR1200 Custom. Details are scarce but the announcement was made at Wheels and Waves this weekend and it’s going to be available in 2019.
Hagerty Insurance has made some fun strides into the content game recently, including the “Redline Rebuild” series that I’ve previously featured. The series normally covers cars, but every once in a while they rehab a motorcycle, and the results are worth watching.
Dean Harrison just set a new lap record for the Isle of Man TT, and what’s almost impossible to fathom is that he did it from a standing start! Unfortunately, his good luck did not hold as he had to retire during later in the race with a mechanical failure on his Silicon Engineering Kawasaki ZX10-RR. Still, he broke every …
I know I still owe you my recap of this year’s Quail (I promise I’m working on it!), but today I want to focus on just one of the motorcycles that was in the show – Clay Baker’s 1972 Honda CB750, which won first place in the Japanese category. He kindly sent over some photos of the restoration process, and …
On Sunday, July 8th, Nitro Circus will put on a three-hour TV show on the History channel called “Evel Live”. The show will be all about Travis Pastrana recreating three of Evel’s most famous jumps, which means that Pastrana is a crazy person. To get you excited, here’s a reminder of how Evel did:
