Isn’t it funny how some people must announce it to everyone, every time they do something supposedly grandiose? How many of your Facebook friends report on everything they do, every second of the day. It seems these days a trip to the gym doesn’t count unless the world is notified first. At the young age of only 33 years old, Anthony Keeling, owner of Chassis Design Company, isn’t one of those individuals that seek validation of his work publicly. Instead he has the confidence and skills to stand behind his builds without shouting it from the rooftop. Anthony’s dual 23-inch wheeled custom is the perfect example of showing what ya got versus talking about what ya can do.

In MotoGP, a most strange sport, compact, highly fit men, most of them Spanish, Italian, Japanese, or Australian, maneuver 350-lb., multimillion-dollar motorcycles around Formula 1 tracks at 210 mph while wearing computerized suits that inflate when they fall off at speed. It feels as though you’re watching Tron live, and the crashes are just as spectacular. Driving these things requires a lot of nerve, as well as generous levels of Euro-style machismo. The riders of MotoGP can’t walk down the street in Barcelona or Milan without being followed by screaming fans. They’re like some sort of unholy marriage between Daft Punk and Apollo astronauts. In the United States, they’re just guys walking down the street.

Ever wondered what would happen if a speedway world champion and a multiple X-Games medallist rallycrosser were let loose on the same dirt track? Monster Energy did; so they hit up insanely talented athletes Tai Woffinden and Liam Doran to unleash the beast, and tear up the dirt, in the ultimate night time two-wheel meets four-wheel huck-fest. Sit tight, hold on, and enjoy.
You might have tried snowmobiling before, many beginners often take part in a safari where you drive on snowmobile tracks from A to B stopping for lunch somewhere and maybe driving back or you just rent sleds and go driving on a track with your friends. We went a step further, forgetting the tracks and turning our sleds towards deep snow in the woods.

It’s almost automatic every time we write about Harley-Davidson that the company’s critics jump out to say how its bikes are heavy or assembled from parts bin leftovers or technologically decades behind its competitors. What these naysayers either forget or completely ignore is that Harley-Davidson motorcycles continue to sell. In its first quarter 2014 financial report, Harley-Davidson reported a 5.8% increase in motorcycle sales including 3.0% in the U.S. alone.

It’s more or less expected that advances in on-board navigation will come with metronomic regularity and that any leaps in features and capabilities will become larger over time. That may be true for general consumer products, but for motorcycle-intended navigators, the pace has been a bit less brisk. Until now.

Kevin Schwantz believes Jorge Lorenzo’s nightmare start to 2014 is a direct result of the breathtaking performances from Spanish rival and reigning world champion Marc Marquez.

The law of unintended consequences is one which always defeats legislators throughout the world – and in whatever sphere they operate.
In 1972, the AMA was becoming discomforted – and you can translate that into the vernacular to know how they were really feeling – about the way things were going in the Grand National Championship.
BSA/Triumph had started the serious rot by turning up with factory bikes which, except for a few engine castings, were full on factory racers. Not that Honda was any less guilty with its CB750 race kits which transformed a refined, but sedate, 750cc racer into a full on GP bike.

It’s so nice when a plan comes together, especially one bound together with the tiniest thread of logic. The Brenham, Texas, tourism people were promoting their lovely Washington County and the upcoming Bluebonnet Festival (a member of the Lupine family), and they invited us to cover it. Then we remembered that our Indian press relations guy is based in Austin, not too far from Brenham.
And that Indians are available in Springfield Blue. Bluebonnets! Blue Indians! Red State! Bingo!
I’m on the case. Every time I’ve been to Texas, everybody’s always been just gratingly pleasant, the BBQ is usually outstanding, and my favorite part is just the basic largeness of the place. In fact, that’s probably why everybody’s nice; there’s still a little elbow room in Texas, once you get out of Houston anyway, whose sprawl is continually expanding and whose George Bush Airport I flew into. That’s how it works in the 21st century. Everybody’s super nice, then they book you the cheapest, most inconvenient flight.

If variety is the spice of life then the bike menu in The Shed should have three chilli symbols next to it, there’s always something new and a bit different gracing the inbox. Between eBay and Craig with his lengthy list, there can’t be many affordable BMW twins left out there for customisers and builders to get their oily hands on so perhaps attention may turn to other models from the Bavarian master-marque. The K-series is a bit unloved, maybe due to the odd powerplant choice, a Peugeot derived car engined slammed over on its side, but from my point of view one of the joys of customising vehicles of any sort is highlighting the engine. The bolder or crazier the engineer that drafted it, the better.
