On a road trip to Texas last year, I was introduced to an interesting shop called Moto-Vated in Luling, Texas – they specialize in importing JDM cars and motorcycles, and they have some fantastic stuff in their ever-changing inventory. Come check it out with me!
Here’s a short heartwarming video of a family bringing a bike across the ocean to reunite it with their patriarch, the original owner. Don’t blame me if this makes you cry…
Every Sunday, my colleagues at Iconic Motorbikes go for a morning ride out to the Rock Store. Sometimes I join along – here’s a few highlights from today’s excursion!
The 2020 Suzuki Katana is on the cover of the new issue of Cycle World – but the cover image isn’t the usual photograph of a bike in motion. This time around, it’s a painting that was done with disposable chopsticks!
We’ve just listed an awesome limited edition of Honda’s venerable Monkey on the auction site – but I had to take it for a spin myself. Come take a ride with me on the Honda Monkey Baja with the rare Africa Kit!
It lives! Some of you may already be aware of Allen Millyard’s latest project – if not, he’s been busy turning a 4-cylinder Kawasaki Z1 into a 6-cylinder Kawasaki Z1 that he’s calling the “Super Six.” He’ also been documenting most of his work on YouTube, and he’s just shared his first test ride…

When Vy and I stopped in Madrid on our Iberian trip, we encountered a Lambretta club in our hotel. Want to see what they were riding?
There are a few Corvair-powered motorcycles out there, including this one I featured back in 2015. Better-known examples include Norm Grabowski’s Six Pack, Tom McMullen’s Corvair Trike, and Wild Bill Gelbke’s Grasshopper. But the one featured here looks like it’d be the most road-friendly and it’s currently located at the E Hayes and Sons Limited Motoworks Collection.
Because we’re staying at home so much, Vy and I have been watching more TV than usual. Our current fascination is Lego Masters, which is why this Panigale model is calling out to me right now.
