local-motorcycle-events

A couple of Saturdays ago I rode down to Brooklyn to spend a few hours at the Indian Larry block party, run by Bobby and Elisa Seeger. I rarely get to local events, but when I do I really enjoy my time there. One reason is that I get to see old friends that are […]

2013-FLSTFB-Fat-Boy-Lo-Harley-4

As i told you last month in my dyna Street Bob review, Harley-Davidson did the press launch of its new models a bit differently last year.

Buzz-Kanter-12-13-thumb

Summer 2012 was looking to be one of my  favorites ever. I felt like the luckiest guy I knew as everything motorcycle related in my life was going from good to better for me. Early in the year, my friend Al offered me a great deal on a rare and wonderful 1929 JDH two-cam Harley. […]

A Tale Of Two Bikers

As a guy who usually sees the glass (gas tank?) half full, I had an experience recently that showed me two sides. I was at an antique motorcycle show and swap meet with my 1929 Harley JDH. A week earlier, I had upgraded the original and leaky gas petcocks with new-style ones and a modern […]

Don’t expect any apologies or excuses from Harley-Davidson’s FXDB Street Bob, one of five Dynas offered for 2012. This is a straightforward, minimalist motorcycle that mixes simple styling features like bobbed fenders, miniapehanger handlebars, staggered exhausts, and a solo seat to create a showroom custom that reflects the blue-collar attitude of a homebrew hot rod. […]

12-Garage-cover

Whenever I meet our readers at events or out on the open road, a comment I often hear is how much they like the way we do our tech articles. Of course, what they want in tech varies, but that’s to be expected. Some readers want more Twin Cam stuff, such as air cleaner, exhaust, […]

Summer Motorcycle Travel Tips

I often see three dangerous patterns when cars interact with a long line of bikes. One scenario is when a car driver wants to get onto a four-lane highway. Though the driver should wait until the bikes have passed, he rarely does. What usually happens is the driver tries to blend into a small gap […]
