I’ve never thought too much about buying a new-new bike, but oh man, I really want one of these.
Gearing up to do a track day which would’ve happened at the end of last year’s season had my ZX-6R not been stolen. My Shoei GT-Air is a great street helmet that has a drop-down sun visor so that means it only meets DOT specs and not ECE, making it track-ineligible. I went shopping and tried on a few Icon and HJC lids…
Only have this one picture I took late in the evening, but it works!
Had to avenge the carb, and then clean it out (twice.)
Discovered the rear axle wasn’t held on with adjusters like it’s supposed to be, but washers, and nuts and twine. so that’s all taken apart at the moment. Found a little hole in one exhaust pipe,…
It’s pretty dang gnarly. Zack Courts gives it a proper flogging too.
The sensible thing to do is just buy a pre-prepped track bike, but why do that when you can build and set it up yourself for more time and money!
I’m no photographer nor do I claim to be, but I really like how this one turned out. I took it with my LG V30 phone and brought it into paint.net for minor contrast and brightness adjustments.
took both spark plugs out. one was NGK, one was Champion. they both looked brand new.
I’ve spent most of the past month on two wheels. This hereby makes me an authority on the subject. Please sit, while I force upon you facts based entirely in opinion, experience, and the cold hard truth.
The two stroke machines up front are ready to rock. The single stage snow blower up front was garbage picked by my dad a few years ago.
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…
So as the temperatures get colder, EOY bonuses arrive, and I start to defer my student loans, I’m thinking about a project. The latest idea is to buy a chinese gy6 moped (probably a ruckus clone) still in the crate and assemble myself and do a few upgrades (bore kit, intake, exhaust, clutch, battery, limiter) to it…
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 picked it up tonight, paid a crisp C-note. Wifey is not happy that I dragged another thing home.
Good news: my wife and I have bred our very own scooter gang.
And snapped these. Quite the adventure, I know. Bonus: kitteh photos.
I have two trade offers on the table and I can’t make up my mind!
And it has a roundel.
My buddy finally had time to weld my scooter exhaust back together. I’ve come to learn this is a weak point of the Super 8. The muffler is really heavy, and only held on by two bolts. He decided to brace the repair with a piece of angle iron, so hopefully it doesn’t happen again. He also apologized about 20 times for…
Cruising through the listings on Cho Tot, a popular e-marketplace in Vietnam, I came across what I instantly knew was my future bike: a 1981 Suzuki GN125. It was all original and came with the original, numbers-matching “Blue Card”, the title and registration for Motorcycles in Vietnam. The listing had the price at…
