    Motorcycle Monday: Rupp Roadster

    I was wandering around the Thompson Speedway swap meet yesterday morning, stuffing my face with egg, cheese and sausage sandwiches. There wasn’t a whole lot of good car stuff, but as is the case with a New England swap, you’ve got  a lot of snowblowers and minibikes for sale. It got me thinking about the ...

    Motorcycle Monday: Buell CityX

    My name is Lindsay, and I love factory demo days. Why? Because I’m cheap, and I love to try out other people’s stuff for free. One of the most interesting test ride events I can recall was the Buell demo day at the Two Wheels Only Motorcycle Resort in Suches, GA, in March of 2005. ...

    Motorcycle History: Please Learn Some

    I keep a fairly close eye on all the more popular internet motorcycle publications out there, so I can stay abreast of anything newsworthy or late-breaking.  I am asking this with all due respect: Please stop writing about truly historic motorcycles unless you’re willing to call out bullshit when you see it...

    Motorcycle Monday: KTM Duke II

    KTM’s 640 LC4 engine is one of my favorites of all time. Although it vibrates like a paint shaker on meth and can be prone to some tedious maintenance, it’s a compact and diverse little power plant. The versatile Austrian single found its way into a variety of KTMs including the company’s enduros, supermotos, and ...

    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,...

    Motorcycle Monday: Yamaha TW200

    My name is Lindsay, and I am addicted to dual sport motorcycles. Big or small, I love them all. Dual sports tend to be the oddballs of the motorcycle world, and I have a fondness for the most peculiar of the breed. One of the most unusual is the Yamaha TW200. What other dual sport ...

    Motorcycle Monday: Ducati 888

    Boy Scout Troop #888 was selling popcorn and other vittles at a festival in Maryville, TN, this afternoon, and after I stopped thinking about popcorn and vittles, I started thinking about the Ducati 888. I know the first bit I wrote for this blog was about the Ducati 999 and wasn’t too many weeks ago, ...

    Motorcycle Monday: Kawasaki KLR 650

    The Kawasaki KLR650 has graced showroom floors around the world for over 25 years. That’s an impressive run for any motorcycle model and more so when you consider that the KLR has seen only one truly significant redesign since its introduction in 1987. The KLR catches a lot of flak for being an old man’s ...

    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 ...
