T-Dub'ing to the Betty Lee Mine and Shooting Super Stallions

 I woke near Sunrise and caught the sun as it crested the horizon: The plan today was to go nearer the Copper Mountains that are roughly 8 miles to the south and check out the Betty Lee Mine therein.The mountains themselves were OK, not much in terms of majestic scenery or such, pretty much a larger/longer version of Baker Peaks next to the campsite: From the signpost labeled F7, one takes one of the sub-trails towards the southwest and following the sign for the mine, arrives after roughly ...

Grazing Bison: GMC Canyon AT4 Off-Road Performance Edition Package

While GMC is synonymous with trucks, General Motors has also made it a pseudo-luxury brand in relation to Chevrolet.

Cafe ‘Blade: A home-built Honda CBR900RR cafe racer

We’ve learnt to never underestimate garage builders. After-hours projects are usually executed with little money, but an abundance of time—and that sparks creativity and ingenuity. This home-built cafe racer is sharp and minimalistic, but it’s also a bitsa of the highest order. Using a crashed 1996 Honda CBR900RR Fireblade as a donor, builder Leo Poulsen built it up with a mash up of parts that’s borderline genius. Oh, and it’s the first build out of his home garage, too. Leo started out a...

Uh-oh! Why Is My Dashboard Tire Pressure Light On?

Your car’s tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS for short) is the “voice” of your tires that sometimes speaks up and says, “Check my air, please!” But because not all cars can talk (yet), that urgent request is communicated to you through warning lights on your dash. If there’s an angry-looking light on your dashboard console and you don’t know what it means, read on. It may not even be that big a deal to fix yourself. My Tire Pressure Light is Solid Yellow This happens when the...

Junkyard Find: 1986 Ford Taurus MT-5 Sedan

Allen Millyard Does His Second Video on His Viper V10 Motorcycle

Part Two Not too long ago, I shared a video of Allen Millyard’s Viper V10 motorcycle. For those of you who don’t know him, Millyard is a British engineer that is known for crafting some of the most impressive and crazy machines out there. This motorcycle with a Viper V10 engine at its heart is a perfect example.  In the first video, Millyard did a detailed walkaround of the motorcycle and discussed how he did what he did. It was deeply interesting and in that video, he said he would do another ...

"George Harrison once sent a handwritten letter to a Beatles fan asking them to trash Paul McCartney’s car."

Far Out reports.  The fan, Susan Houghton, presumably calculating what it would take to get Harrison to choose her letter as one to write a response to, had asked him how to wash her car. Harrison wrote out a 7-point list of instructions, the 7th point being:  Now proceed to 20 Forthlin RD. with about 6 buckets full of dirty muddy greasey water, where a shiney Ford Classic will be seen. Spread contents of the buckets evenly, so as to leave a nice film of muck over the car. You can now return ...

VIDEO: A Detailed Look at the 2020 Triumph Daytona 765 Moto2

An Exclusive Machine I usually avoid posting straight-up reviews that other outlets do of motorcycles, in the hopes that we will get to do a detailed review of the bike on our site, but seeing as how there are only 765 of the Triumph Daytona 765 Moto2s coming to North America, I doubt we will have the chance unfortunately to do that.  Zack Courts of Revzilla, however, had a chance to get behind the handlebars of this limited-edition motorcycle to give his thoughts.
