These Guys are Crazy The biggest complaint I hear about the Royal Enfield Himalayan is that it lacks power. Well, the Custom Crew at Royal Enfield’s UK-based Technical Centre decided to change that by strapping a Garrett GT 125 turbo to the bike and making some other changes, according to MoreBikes. They call it the …

“Ever drink espresso while getting high at an Ikea?” – Mr. Regular Mr. Regular, for those who don’t know, is a bit of an eccentric.

Engine Ice Coolant is used in racing cars, bikes, and any other vehicle that is liquid-cooled. Some argue it’s overpriced snake oil while many insist it’s magic in a bottle.

A True Work of Art The Honda RC30 is a bike built with precision in mind. It’s a bike that was created to be homologated for entry into the then-new WorldSBK Championship in 1987. It was a fully faired sportbike with a 90-degree V4 engine. It’s a beautiful machine even today, and the video shown …

The Video We All Needed Right Now While you’re all cooped up inside, one of the things that should help is knowing that someday you’ll be able to get back out there on your bike and ride. To indulge in a little ridiculousness this morning, I wanted to show you all a video of a …

Further Tests of the Bike Bought on Amazon Not long ago, I shared a video where the guys over at Bikes and Beards bought a sportbike on Amazon and put it through a 72-hour torture test to see just how good it really was. Surprisingly it stood up well to basically all tests. That wasn’t …

Torture Test for Quality I reported a while back on the YouTuber that bought the most expensive street-legal motorcycle he could find on Amazon. It was a sportbike of an unclear brand with a Lifan engine that he paid about $2,500 for. While the motorcycle seemed like not such a bad buy at first, he …

A Surprisingly Competent Machine I wouldn’t recommend you buy a motorcycle sight unseen off of a website, but that’s exactly what the guys at Bikes and Beards did.

A Detailed Look at the Iconic Brand If there’s one scooter I could have in my shed, it’d be a Vespa. The brand is iconic. It’s scooters retain their value better than any other vehicle on the road today, and while it would never replace my want or need for a legit motorcycle, I could …
