2011 VIPER DIAMONDBACK Motorcycle News

2011-Viper-Diamondback-1

It’s all about size. I regret to inform you that no matter what your girlfriend or wife tell you, size does matter. Now, can you imagine what your honey would say if you came home with 152″ between your legs? Well, thanks to the Viper Motorcycle Company and its Diamondback super cruiser, every man can […]

Magazine Review Big Dog’s 2010 Ridgeback

Ridgeback-5

As far back as I can recall, I remember people referring to me as a chubby kid. As I got older, those comments turned harsher, and I was called fat, especially by other children. So it’s no wonder that I have grown up to be thick skinned. Over the years, I have also gathered a […]

Harley Magazine Review Sabertooth V-8 Motorcycle

Sabertooth V8 Motorcycle 1

Like to blend in with the masses? Are you the type that shuns attention? Then don’t buy this bike! As I told you in my coverage of the Virginia Beach Bike Classic and Myrtle Beach last year, I blasted down the East Coast to both events on this Ford V-8-powered beastie. I had so much […]

Ecosse Heretic. American Muscle Motorcycle, Euro Sexy Looks

ecosse_1

What’s a millionaire to do if he wants an all-American motorcycle with Harley style power but that unique look and feel more like a Confederate, Ducati, MV Agusta or other exotic Euro-sportbike?

Working Mans Special Motorcycle

Working Man's Special 1

I don’t know what your Daytona trip was like, but mine was a blast! Though most of what happened I can’t put into a family magazine, I can tell you about this cool little bobber I got to run around on all week. Built by the Sucker Punch Sally’s (SPS) crew in Phoenix, the Working […]

Motorcycle Review Pitbull

Back in 1998, I tested the then-new Pitbull from Big Dog. That machine was a bare-bones bike, sporting the only hardtail in Big Dog’s lineup. I loved it! I also froze my butt off riding it around Connecticut since it was late February. I rode this 2010 Pitbull at the same time of the year, […]

Dirico Motorcycle ProStreet Magazine Review

The Massachusetts day was so immaculate it made our otherwise stoic AIM sales rep, John Smolinski, weep. Actually, that’s not quite true. What caused old John to blubber was far more profound than any beautiful weather. But perhaps I’m getting ahead of myself. Prior to John’s charming waterworks, I was given a gleaming new Dirico […]

Brass Balls Bobber Custom V-Twin Motorcycle

bb3

As promised, here’s the bike I test rode during last year’s Sturgis rally and what a sweet little bobber it is. As for Dar, the owner of Brass Balls Bobbers, I think he’s nuts. Seriously, how he can sell this bike for only $16,995 and still make a profit is beyond me. But then, that’s […]
