Refreshed 2016 BMW Models Include Special-Editions and Safety Updates

Are you one of those people who pays extra to purchase jeans that are already ripped, or do you like to wear your jeans and rip them yourself? For 2016, BMW is offering an R nineT Special Edition with a hand-brushed aluminum tank that includes visible welding seams (smooth welds are an option). Just think […]


Cafemoto BMW 002: Stripped Down Flying Brick

We like stripped-down, simplified bikes with reasonable, comfortable ergonomics. You may remember the old BMW K100 series (affectionately known as the “flying brick”) manufactured by the German marque between 1982 and 1992. Somewhat revolutionary when introduced, it provided the lowest center of gravity for an inline four engine configuration, and put the engine where you […]


Old Honda Concepts Heading for Production?

Back in 2007, Honda put great effort into three concept motorcycles in advance of the Tokyo Motor Show. In 2008, the motorcycle market essentially collapsed, not just in the United States but also in other markets important to Honda. Only one of the three concepts shown at the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show made it into […]

With Rossi leading, Marquez dove inside aggressively as they entered the first right hand kink of the chicane, the riders touched, and Rossi was […]


Rossi Scores Pole at Assen

The one chink in Valentino Rossi’s armor this year is his relatively poor performance in qualifying. Frequently starting from the third row, or worse, Rossi has repeatedly sliced and diced his way to the podium. At Assen, he will start from pole position in his effort to retain the championship points lead over Yamaha teammate […]


Just Because …

I wanted to post this photo. It is a picture of a bike that caught my attention several years ago while surfing the internet. Something about it. I think it is a “BSA Regal” manufactured Gold Star. After the death of the original BSA, BSA Regal began making bikes that looked much like the original […]
