Eli Tomac wins second straight pro motocross championship

Eli Tomac wins second straight pro motocross championship                     Eli Tomac raced through a muddy track Saturday in Indiana to win his second straight championship in the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross series. He became the first rider to repeat as 450 class motocross champion since Ricky Carmichael in 2006. He nearly clinched the title with a second-place finish in the first moto and took a 24-point series lead into the final moto of the season. Only a disastrous finish by Tomac and a victory by rival Marvin Musquin could steal Tomac’s [...]

MotoGP Le Mans Preview 2017

Fresh off his convincing win in Jerez, Repsol Honda mighty mite Dani Pedrosa has been reinstated in The Alien Club, looking relaxed, comfortable and fast on his RC213V. For the first time in five years, his name is coming up in conversations about who might take the 2017 title. Given his age, his panoply of surgical scars and generally lousy karma, I make him a longshot for the championship. But other than a few Americans with pathologically long memories, there are a number of fans who wouldn’t mind seeing Dani Pedrosa win a premier class title. Embed from Getty Images [...]

MotoGP Jerez 2017 Results

Repsol Honda #2 Dani Pedrosa, looking like the 2012 version of himself, won today’s Spanish Grand Prix, leading wire to wire for his first win since Misano last year. Teammate and defending champion Marc Marquez gave chase for most of the race, but never seemed to have quite enough to mount a serious challenge to Pedrosa on one of those days… Underdog Jorge Lorenzo claimed third step on the podium in a credible performance on the factory Ducati, his first podium in red which, he said afterwards, felt like a win. When the smoke cleared, the 2017 race had tightened [...]

Wretched Excess: R6 And Hayabusa-Powered Lawnmowers!

This just in from the Too Much Of Everything Is Just Enough Department: Nothing exceeds like excess! And we found two great examples. First, we give you excess in the form of a R6-powered lawnmower: Yeah, we know the video quality sucks, but did you notice the space between the ground and the front tires? Next, we bring you excessive excess, a Hayabusa-powered lawnmower: At least this guy was smart enough to outfit the mower with a wheelie bar!

The American Iron Road Tour

There are a lot of reasons that we moto journos get into this gig. It goes without saying that we all share a passion for the sport of motorcycling, but it’s about more than just the opportunity to ride and test motorcycles and gear for a living, see things that we might not otherwise see, enjoy memorable experiences and then tell stories about them. It’s also about meeting great people from all walks of life who share our passion for this amazing sport.  That’s probably the best way to describe our recent whirlwind American Iron Tour, where [...]

2017 Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin Vs. KTM 1090 Adventure R

Since its introduction, the Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin hasn’t stopped drawing comparisons to some of the best off-road-oriented Adventure-Tourers in the category, an honor it comes by honestly seeing as it’s such a great motorcycle. The Africa Twin’s surprisingly dirt-worthy performance, its fairly light weight, simplicity and relatively economical $13,299 MSRP (for the manual 6-speed model) have made it a sales success. Honda seems to have remembered what a lot of other OEMs have forgotten, namely that complexity and weight can be the enemy. Well, apparently KTM got the message, because for 2017 the Austrian dirtbike giant has released [...]

Three-Wheeler Threeway

Five years ago this month MO reported that Bombardier Recreational Products had filed a patent as far back as 2009 for a control system that’d allow the Can-Am Spyder to lean. Later that same year it came to light that Harley-Davidson had been developing a similar tilting three-wheeler (the Penster) for years before scrapping the project and moving in a more traditional-trike direction with the Tri-Glide and recently introduced Freewheeler. Well, guess what? The leaning reverse trike charge isn’t being led or financed by BRP or H-D and their incredibly deep pockets. At the vanguard of the full-size tilting trike [...]

Yamaha Teases New Three-Wheeled Vehicle

It’s been a busy news day on the Yamaha front as the Tuning Fork company previews some new models for the Tokyo Motor Show. With electric motorcycles, retro beginner bikes, cars, and even autonomous biker robots, what more can Yamaha have in store for Tokyo? How about another leaning three-wheeler? Yamaha released a teaser image showing another leaning multi-wheeled vehicle based on the Tricity platform. Yamaha has made it clear the Tricity was just the first in a new family of leaning trikes. Earlier this year, Yamaha showed off a couple of concepts called the 03GEN-f and 03GEN-x, and patent [...]

Polaris Slingshot Vs. Can-Am Spyder F3-S Vs. Morgan 3 Wheeler

Technically, and by that I mean according to the way in which the vehicles here are registered through the DMV (except Texas, but more on that later), each of these three-wheelers qualifies as a motorcycle. In California, at least, a motorcycle endorsement on your driver’s license to legally operate them is not required, and the two with seatbelts eschew the state’s helmet law. Still, without a more explicit category available and the law being what it is, “motorcycle” becomes the default label for this trio. As a lover of all-things-motorcycle, with a broad motorcycling perspective, you’ll not find me [...]
