American Motorcycle and Harley-Davidson Reviews

Harley Magazine Review Road King Classic

It’s not uncommon to hear Harley-Davidson touring bikes referred to as the kings of the American road, a statement that is no doubt echoed by the many owners of those bikes. Why wouldn’t you take pride in your machine being considered royalty? Heck, I’m down with that, and I only own a plebian FXR. So […]

Harley V-Rod Muscle Magazine Review

As of this writing, Vance & Hines/Screamin’ Eagle Racing’s newest rider, Eddie Krawiec, just earned his second NHRA Pro-Stock motorcycle event “Wally” victory trophy. He was aboard the bike many consider to be the inspiration for the VRSCF V-Rod Muscle you see on these pages. Heck, we even have the color right. Eddie’s rise to […]

Harley Magazine Test Sportster Review Iron 883

Participating in test rides on the new Harley lineup is, understandably, a major benefit of being an employee here at American Iron Magazine. The day the new steeds arrive at our office, you notice grown men morphing into kids at a candy store: “Who’s taking what model?” “Where are we going for lunch?” and “What […]

Working Mans Special Motorcycle

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 […]

Harley Magazine Test CVO Motorcycle

Every Harley-Davidson new model launch I’ve attended over the years has been a rewarding experience in some way or another, but none more so than the ones hosted by the Motor Company’s Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO) division. It seems that when the CVO team launches their new models, they do it in a special and […]

Harley Magazine Tested Dyna Street Bob

In a moment of clarity that can only come from consuming adult beverages while breathing the thin air of Denver, I realized that over the years I’ve had the good fortune of riding every member of the Dyna family except the Street Bob. With that revelation fresh in my mind, I decided to remedy the […]

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, […]

2010 Harley-Davidson Fat Boy Lo Review

If you’re torn between buying a Softail or one of H-D’s line of Dark Customs, stress no longer. The Motor Company has felt your pain and delivered a machine that fits the bill on both counts. And if you’re also a rider with leg length issues, like me (29″ inseam), you’re going to feel like […]

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

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 […]
