Suddenly, Yamaha’s Maverick Viñales and partner Valentino Rossi, the Boys in Blue, sit on top of the world looking down. Those looking up, WAY up, include defending champion Marc Marquez of Honda and the factory Ducati team, currently residing on the other side of the proverbial tracks. Marquez has never lost, deep in the heart of Texas, which makes Sunday’s contest what my wife (eyebrows raised) refers to as “critical?” Even though it’s so early in the season – Round 3 – the Yamaha contingent [...]

BMW S1000XR Vs. KTM 1290 Super Duke GT Vs. MV Agusta Turismo Veloce

Just as there are a million ways to skin a cat, there are a million ways to go sport-touring, too. Some folks prefer the full-on Gold Wing style of touring, while others sway the other direction, slapping on a backpack filled only with the bare essentials as they dart off aboard their sportbike. Throw in muscle cruisers and adventure bikes with integrated or aftermarket luggage, and the options for burning miles and scraping peg feelers are very wide. For this test, we’re shooting for the happy medium, with three motorcycles that all approach sport-touring slightly differently. The players include the [...]

Rickey Gadson Sets New Speed Record

Rickey Gadson has been hard on the gas. The multi-time champion drag racer recently hit the small screen with a co-starring role in a new TV show, Caffeine and Octane airing on Velocity, and he’s recently ridden to the highest speed ever clocked on a supercharged Kawasaki Ninja H2. Rickey Gadson on TV You may recall that Gadson also had accompanied me to the Oregon Airstrip Attack event in which we both attempted to break through the 200-mph barrier in a half-mile sprint on a stock Kawi H2R, but we both came up just a few mph short. Kawasaki H2R [...]

MO Tested: Healtech Quick Shifter Easy Review – Update

Almost two years ago, I reviewed the Healtech Quick Shifter Easy and finished my review with the following sentence: “The HealTech Quick Shifter Easy lives up to its name, and it will bring a smile to your face as you run through the gears, hearing the exhaust note seamlessly change as you snick through the gears.” Well, in the world of electronics, two years is a long time. So, when I learned from Blue Monkey Motorsports that the QSE’s control unit and sensor had been updated, I ordered one up and paid with my own dang money. No review unit [...]

Designer Tom Dixon And Customizer Stefano Venier Team Up On Moto Guzzi Custom

Apparently famed UK furniture and lighting designer, Tom Dixon, is an avid motorcyclist and a long-term Moto Guzzi owner. In fact, in an interview with Dezeen he credits his desire to work on his own motorcycles as the impetus for learning to weld – a skill that launched his career creating things with metal. On a visit to the Moto Guzzi factory, Dixon procured what appears to be a V7 to use as a new canvas in collaboration with notable customizer Stefano Venier. The result blends Venier’s raw style with Dixon’s penchant for geometric designs. Dubbed Tomoto, the motorcycle was [...]
