In Blog by AbhiLeave a Comment

On August 15th, the RM Monterey Auction will take place at the Portola Hotel in (surprise) Monterey, California. I thought I’d check out some of the lots on offer and share my personal highlights with you. Then I realized that they’re only selling one bike, so my job got a lot easier.

Let me paint you a picture. It’s 6:15pm and I’m on the way back down the Haul Road after reaching the top of Alaska. Stopping for the rare opportunity to fill up my gas tank, I noticed that my left fork seal is spurting out oil like blood from a carotid artery in any action movie. Alright, that might not …

In Blog by Abhi1 Comment

REV’IT Urban Collection Preview at Beach Moto

In Blog by Abhi2 Comments

I’m ashamed to confess that when I first heard about REV’IT, something about the name made me think it was a cheap in-house brand from a store like Cycle Gear. It wasn’t until I went on a group adventure camp/ride to Death Valley and I saw nearly 50% of the riders with REV’IT suits that I realized I had made …

In Blog by AbhiLeave a Comment

Post Sale Update: This CX TUrbo sold for $8,722 after 43 bids on eBay. The predecessor to the CX650T, the Honda CX500 Turbo was a confusing bike.

In Blog by AbhiLeave a Comment

As a good friend of mine puts it, “Petrolicious has become the thinking-person’s Jalopnik, and continues to amaze.” After poking around the site (and spending way too much time there), I can’t say I’d disagree – not that I don’t enjoy Jalopnik!
