In 1964, Bridgestone introduced a series of 90cc motorcycles – there were 9 different models based around 4 primary designs. One of the designs was the Mountaineer, and you can probably guess by the name that this was built to go off-road.
When I was at a recent Alpinestars track day, someone from Cake had brought their electric off-roader for people to play around with. It’s an e-bike that comes with a 2.6-kWh battery, Ohlins suspension, and a $13,000 price tag – this is one of the 50 Limited Editions that actually cost $14,000 when new.
Produced between 1954 and 1970, the Gilera B300 (B for Bicilindrico or two cylinders) is a rare find in the US. It was built to be a reliable commuter rather than a performance mount.
Another day, another Italian beauty out of Stuart Parr’s collection. Yesterday’s Gilera Saturno was my favorite of the current offerings, but even that stunner isn’t as visually striking as this Pantah 650SL, one of just 288 ever built.
The trailer for the newest Bond movie was released yesterday, and there’s a Triumph Scrambler 1200 in a supporting role. Near the end of the trailer, there’s a motorcycle jump that’s worth a closer look – and thankfully someone on YouTube has provided just that.

Congratulations to Brody Cox, who was the first (on Instagram) to identify this bike as a Honda Solo! Gerald Koziol was the first here on Bike-urious.
One of the most striking custom motorcycles at this year’s Handbuilt Show, Quail Motorcycle Gathering, and OG Moto Show was Kott Motorcycles‘ Exodus – a 1980 BMW boxer twin that’s dripping with aluminum.

When Ben Bostrom was competing in AMA Superbike with a 998S, he raced with the number 155. So when Ducati decided to sell a limited edition replica, the production quantity was obviously…310. OK, that might not make sense at first glance, but it comes from totaling up 155 bikes in the US and 155 in the UK. Ben signed every …
A rare scooter from Triumph, the Tina was introduced in 1962 in an attempt to diversify the lineup and offer a scooter for “shoppers” – they already had the 250cc Tigress for riders who wanted a more capable scooter.
I’m using Thanksgiving break to catch up on some stories that I’ve let slip! Did you see my recap from the Quail? Good – now here’s a picture gallery from this year’s Handbuilt Motorcycle Show.
On my recent Texas trip, I encountered a bike I had never heard of before. I can’t remember the last time I openly told you what the manufacturer was in a Guess That Bike post, so let’s see who’ll be the first to identify this Honda.
There are several great track schools out there, and I wouldn’t pretend to know which one is the best because I’ve never taken any of them. With that said, when I was at the launch of the 2020 S1000RR at Barber, BMW had some of the staff of California Superbike School in attendance in a support role and I was …
