The Southwestern Sojourn - Day 52: Back in Sun City

Left the boondocking site near the Painted Rock Petroglyph campground today just before noon.  I should probably have waited a bit longer for the water that fell yesterday to dry up.Getting out of the site was no problem, there was a layer of rock laid on top of the sandy ground.The dirt road leading back to the campground was another story.  I could feel the wheels wiggling a bit in the softer spots that "looked OK" but the worst parts were the large puddles.Some of them were wide enough, long ...

GULF COURSE. Kott Motorcycle’s Textbook Honda CB550 Cafe Racer

Written by Andrew Jones While we’d argue that the Gulf Oil Fords and Porsches from the ’60s and ’70s are amongst the most beautiful racing machines ever made, it’s with a fair amount of trepidation that we click on bike submissions that have anything to do with the brand. The reason? My God, it’s been done to death. It’s been done to death, buried, dug up at midnight and then done some more. But when California’s Dustin Kott dared to have a go on a Honda CB550, he did it with the subtlety and...

EVs and online marketplaces thrive despite slump in Chinese car sales

China’s massive auto market hit the brakes last year as trade tensions and a softening economy dampened consumer confidence, but one segment soared on account of increasing internet penetration — used car sales. New passenger car sales fell to 23.7 million last year, representing a 4.1 year-over-year drop according to a new report by China’s Association of Automobile Manufacturers, the country’s top auto association. That marks the very first annual decline in the world’s biggest car market sinc...

Suzuki Is Working on a New VVT for GSX-R1000

Say Goodbye to the All-Mechanical Setup Suzuki’s current GSX-R1000 has a variable valve timing system it got from the GSX-RR Moto GP bike. It’s an all-mechanical system and a darn good one.

Tesla unveils first home charging station that can be plugged into a wall outlet

Tesla today is launching a new home charging station designed for the modern home. The new Wall Connector is the auto maker’s first home charging solution that can be plugged into a wall outlet rather than being hardwired into the home’s electrical system. This charger can plug directly into a NEMA 14-50 plug — the most common high-voltage plug in the US. This is a departure from Tesla’s previous strategy but one that makes sense. This Wall Connector allows home owners to install a high-volta...
