Elspeth Beard’s Solo Global Motorcycle Adventure

Messy Nessy, a well-curated website you need to visit during these times, just posted a great story and interview with Elspeth Beard, who at 23 years old set off on her motorcycle, and didn’t return home until she’d traveled the entire globe.

What Harley-Davidson Needs To Do To Survive

Harley-Davidson has taken a beating in the financial press recently and it appears that 2020 is shaping up to be the roughest year yet for the 117-year-old company. The company’s CEO left town in February after the product expansion and new-rider programs he championed failed to ignite investor confidence or reverse (or even stall) the company’s declining sales performance. The news of his replacement, a guy tapped from an athletic shoe company who already sat on the board, has helped the stock rebound slightly, but I predict a very short…

Your Support On Friday Helps The Vicious Cycles Thanks To Bandcamp

I’ve wanted to write a review of the Vicious Cycles’ 2019 album, “Motorcycho” for a long time. But there’s been a problem. A friend wrote album reviews for Trans-World Skateboarding and I could always tell when she had met the band. The reviews of artists she knew personally were more positive, and I guess, less objective. That’s the problem I had writing up any Vicious Cycles release. Did I like music because I liked the band members or because I liked the music? I don’t believe anyone can write an…

The Time Capsule Race Imagery Of Ken Steinhoff

I fell into a deep rabbit hole while searching for black-and-white motorcycle race images on Google Images and then one shot stopped me cold. It is a pan shot of two racers in wind-cheating tucks, hauling down a dirt track at speeds that must be approaching 35 miles per hour. You see, these competitors are not on Harleys or Triumphs or BSAs. They are racing Honda S90s and both have the determined look of competitors racing for a world championship. I was mesmerized by the shot and lucky for me…

The Speed Kings Book Perfect For The Socially Distanced

First time hefting The Speed Kings, you’d be forgiven for assuming it is just a coffee-table book to add to your motorsports library. The Speed Kings, at 375 pages and a whopping 4.6 pounds, is so much more than a coffee-table book. The Speed Kings is actually three books in one that presents the reader with an in-depth, well-researched and visually-stunning history of America’s Motordrome Racing. THE BICYCLE BOOK The first book inside The Speed Kings deals with the history of bicycle velodrome racing when motorcycles were introduced to “motor…

Facebook Complicit In Ripping Off Of Users?

Facebook has created a remarkable social network so why can’t they figure a way to shield their users from obvious cons and rip-offs? Not only do they allow us to be preyed on by these thieves, they are directing them towards us and making money for doing it. The latest ad to pop up on my feed is for a “Mini Moto Monkey 125” that sells for $109.99. The company will pay the freight and there are only 20 left so you better hurry and order yours. Don’t. The photo…
