Vice Reports from Deep Inside the English Rebel Scooter Scene (video)

These are the new James Deans. The new Marlon Brandos … Deal with it.


Polaris Slingshot: MD First Ride (Drive?) – A “Motorcycle” of a Different Sort

I’ve tested some three-wheelers before, such as the Piaggio MP3, but never anything quite so car-like as the Polaris Slingshot. Unlike the MP3, the Slingshot does not lean in corners, but remains flat (except for some compression of the suspension on the outside wheel). Looking at the Slingshot, I am reminded much more of a […]


MotoAmerica Revs Up for Launch: New Wayne Rainey Video

We abandoned coverage of U.S. road racing several years ago when, in our opinion, it began to be managed in a horribly disjointed, unprofessional manner, offering a confusing mish-mash of racing classes. 2015 is a new beginning for American motorcycle road racing. We haven’t talked much about MotoAmerica, but the concepts it brings forward are […]


2014 Honda CBR650F: MD Ride Review

Asking somebody if they ever had a CBR600F2 is like asking if they’ve ever tried McDonald’s fries or flown in a 737.

We have spent years watching manufacturer after manufacturer invest huge amounts of money into the development of American-style cruisers. Purposely eschewing state-of-the-art technology for air-cooled, pushrod designs. After all, this is what cruiser customers wanted. Low tech. What about motorcyclists who don’t care about cruiser styling, but still want simple, basic designs? Maybe they form […]


Don’t Try This Anywhere: Robbie Maddison Attacks Utah Olympic Park

It is not likely that you can ride like Robbie Maddison, but watching this video should get your juices flowing … the power and grace of a big single cylinder supermoto under one of the world’s best riders. Maddison set a jump record where he launches off the Olympic ski jump ramp, traveling a distance […]


Royal Enfield Gets Terblanche as it Develops a New Engine and North American Expansion Plans

The sun never set on the British Empire, until, of course, it did. We must face the fact that the United States is no longer the gravitating forceĀ in the motorcycle industry. Is it India? Perhaps. Royal Enfield is the oldest motorcycle manufacturer on the planet. It is currently owned by the India-based Eicher Group (since […]
