Today, Rocky Mountain ADV debuted a series that’ll appeal to those of you that loved Top Gear’s cheap car challenges – their question is, “can $1,000 motorcycles make it 1,000 adventure miles?”
A gentleman named Bo Bushnell has the world’s largest collection of 60s/0s California outlaw motorcycle memorabilia, and my buddy Charles Fleming just shared an interesting profile of him on the LA Times.
It was later in the year than usual, but another Mecum auction in Las Vegas has come and gone. The auction cleared $17.5 million through 1,214 listings, 1,151 (95%) of which sold. Here’s 12 of my favorites!
A few weeks ago, I let you know about Inside the Garage’s visit to Iconic. Their next episode is out, and the subject is a fantastic motorcycling destination in Southern California – MotoDoffo Winery!
Our friends over at the International Motorcycle Show recently came by Iconic as part of a revamp for their second season of Inside the Garage. For this season, IMS is changing things up and taking garage tours of “celebrity riders, racers, and key players in the powersports industry and see what they got stashed inside their garage!”
Axell Hodges continues the Slayground series with #3 – and it starts off strong with an impressive sequence filmed from a chopper as well as a fantastic transfer with a backflip that lands straight into a wheelie!
Over at Iconic, we’re trying our best to give back to the community. Part of that involves giving away some of the fun stuff that we get at the shop – this week’s in a limited edition AGV X3000 Ago Helmet!
Lots of people are familiar with the Suzuki RE-5 (most notable for the Wankel rotary engine and the “tin can” gauge cluster), but the number of people who’ve actually experienced one is much of smaller. Jay Leno shares the experience (including how staggeringly smooth it is) in his latest episode of Jay Leno’s Garage.
Stop motion artists always get my respect, but bonus points go to Mechanimations for something focused on motorcycles. He calls it “A Dirt Bike Engine Rebuild Video Like You’ve Never Seen” and it’s hard to argue with that!
If your Russian-made boxer sidecar isn’t exclusive enough for you, Ural’s got just the ticket for you – a limited edition (20 units worldwide) version of their 2WD Gear Up!
Reader Jack C. sent me a picture of his fridge door, and he’s throwing down a fun gauntlet! I’m sure many of you have accumulated motorcycle sticker collections over the years on your workbenches, fridges, walls, whatever it might be. Come show them off, and I’ll send a Bike-urious t-shirt (plus a sticker, obviously) to the best one!

David S sent me an awesome album on Flickr which is simply entitled “Vintage Motorcycle Art Archive”. There’s over 2,400 photos and it’s the kind of thing you can get lost in for hours.
