The best sports cars offer the most raw driving experience. No electronic nannies, skimpy safety features, an intense sensation of speed, and in many cases no roof. One of the most prominent examples of a good sports car is the venerable Mazda Miata. But where do you go from there? Take away some bodywork and you have…
Sweet baby Jesus I’m in love! The EICMA motorcycle show is going on in Milan this week and there’s been a bevy of awesome bikes debuting. This little bug makes 105hp / 63 lbs•ft of torque and weighs 418 lbs wet and 373 lbs dry.
I have two trade offers on the table and I can’t make up my mind!
And it has a roundel.
(Repost for weekend crowd) Since I no longer have a bike of my own I’ve been doing more writing than riding. And because Lanesplitter is as much of a ghost town as HD showrooms this year I’m sharing the content with Oppo!
I went to my third track day/weekend at National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park. I was initially a little nervous after my off at Putnam Park a month ago combined with the remnants of Hurricane Harvey blowing through the night before, but it all came together!
Passed my MSF class this weekend! Now I just need to bring some paper to the DMV, stand around for several hours, and I’ll have my motorcycle endorsement.
I have too many projects and not enough time or money to do what I want, so off she goes.
Bear with me, I’m just trying to figure out if I’ve gone mad. I’ve been riding motorcycles for as long as I’ve been driving - even longer if you consider dirt bikes. In the last 12 years I’ve owned 5 bikes, however thinking back they’ve all been Japanese built bikes made between 1976 and 1982. All but one were…
Woooo! Track day photos! Putnam Park is a fast and flowing track. Spent a lot of time on the right side of the tires.
Anyone else love the graphics/styling of their helmet? I sure do.
You didn’t think it was ME, did you? HA! I’m a 300 pound cruiserphile with severe ADD and nothing but disdain for sportbikes, you don’t want my opinions. But this guy?... This is the guy!
Not exactly how I wanted to end the last session of my third trackday.
The girlfriend passed her MSF class and much to my surprise wanted a bike ASAP. I had suggested an old cheap Ninja 250, but she had her heart set on this particular TU250X the moment she saw it. She originally liked the idea of a Honda Rebel, but soon realized that she didn’t like the low seat height and forward…
Left the Outer Banks of NC on Saturday, had a rest day with the fam in Chicago yesterday, rural Kansas Hotel today, and I should be home in Colorado by tomorrow night. I’ll write some more about this trip soon
So in the last month a lot has happened. My house has turned from a home back into a bachelor pad. I changed comapnies, which resulted in me driving my new work truck F-150 from Mcpherson KS to Salida CO on one tank (34 gallons/129 litres) of gasoline. I’m on family vacation in NC right now and I just bought a 2004…
Today is the start of the 2017 Iron Butt Rally, which is, in my opinion, the most hard core thing you can do on a motorcycle.
