    Motorcycle Monday: Vintage Honda Television Spot

    I just finished watching the second season of Jerry Seinfeld’s awesome Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. The premise of the web series is that Jerry picks up one of his comedian pals in a vintage car that fits their personality and he takes them out for — you guessed it — coffee. Acura sponsors it, ...

    Motorcycle Monday: The Honda Big One  1994-95

    In the early 90s, many folks of the motorcycle culture were voicing their desire for another UJM. At the time, most of my riding friends were on bikes covered in plastic with a rather aggressive riding posture required. The engineers at Honda got wind of this request and went to work on producing another standard ...

    Two-Wheel Tuesday: Japanese Motorcycle Barn Find

    Not that I want to turn this into a motorcycle blog, but my pal Jay Holdash forwarded this Craigslist posting from Portland, Oregon, detailing a collection of Japanese motorcycles up for sale for $60,...

    Morning Edition’s Story on Toy Cars is Preposterous

    For the last 25 years, I have been a regular NPR listener. My habits have changed slightly since the advent of the podcast, but I still listen at least once a day. I generally love the coverage, but I’ll say this: Every time Morning Edition or All Things Considered talk about cars or music, I ...

    Motorcycle Monday: Trials Bikes of the 1970s

    Gather ’round, young’uns, and listen while we take you back to the 1970s, when motorcycles sold so powerfully in the United States that the manufacturers were able to build more than a couple of 600cc sport bikes and cruisers. That’s right, motorcycle builders sold anything from street-oriented dirtbikes, dirt-oriented streetbikes, water-cooled, two-stroke triples, shaft-driven, air-cooled ...

    Banned: 7 Cars to Have Sex In

    (Ed. Note: Apparently, a certain major search engine has a “family audience.” That audience is fine with front-page promotion of a “Red Band” trailer for an R-Rated movie in which Jason Statham graphically shatters a guy’s elbow (see below), but humorous allusions to sex in a car? Why, I never. Anyway, here’s the post, in ...

    Motorcycle Monday: Fathers and Their Motorcycles

    Yesterday was Father’s Day, and my dad is the reason I ride motorcycles. So, rather than focus on one specific motorcycle this week, I thought I’d say a little about my dad’s scoots. (Also, I sort of poked fun at him for being an old, cheap KLR rider last week, so I owe him one.)...

    Motorcycle Monday: Honda CB-1

    Raise your hand if you’ve heard of the Honda CB-1. If you haven’t, you’re not alone. If you have, you must really like motorcycles. The CB-1, sold elsewhere in the world as the CB400F and NC27, was a standard naked bike built and imported to the US for only two years, 1989 and ...

    Audience Participation Time: Official Winter Vehicle of New England

    On Saturday, I’m headed to an undisclosed location to judge the New England Motor Press Association’s Official Winter Vehicle of New England awards. For the last decade, NEMPA has selected a number of vehicles in different classes, along with one vehicle selected as “Official Winter Vehicle of New England.” What I’d like to know from ...
