Roger Bourget Introduces The Shredder F-80 Quadracycle

Ex OCC Vinnie Di Martino And Cody Connelly Start V-Force Customs

First, I wondered if I should mention OCC in the title of this post because in their new V-Force Website none of them mention their former employer by name when each of them write his professional background. For both, it goes like that. Vinnie: "I started a job in a small local bike shop and the company (who?) […]

Breaking News. Wal-Mart Wiping Motorcycle Magazines Off Their Shelves

Motorcycle Picture Of The Week.

I thought that the drum or barrel shaped wooden board wall around which stunt motorcyclists ride defying gravity and carrying out tricks was only an American & English tradition. Until I saw this picture taken in India at the Jammu Carnival. To bikes, they add cars, with disastrous results, several riders and spectators being injured […]

Licensed Harley-Davidson Bean Bags for the Holidays

Sometimes, I wonder. Does Harley-Davidson really need to license an iconic motorcycle name to a company selling a line of bean bags and bean bag chairs? I guess it’s like the Elvis Presley name.
