Elon Musk said it was ‘Not a Flamethrower’

After two days locked up in an Italian prison, American Max Craddock was finally able to make his case to a judge. “It’s not a weapon of war,” his lawyer told the investigating magistrate. “It’s a toy they sell to children.” Craddock had been arrested in the Sardinian port city of Olbia in June 2018 after trying to board a private party bus with a collectible flamethrower from Elon Musk’s latest startup, The Boring Company. Craddock had painted his flamethrower black, and written on it the name ...

[REVIEW] Aerostich Transit 3.0 Two Piece Suit Review

Introduction With 2020 in the rearview mirror, it’s time for a follow-up review to my initial look at the Aerostich Transit 3.0 suit. Part of the reason it has taken so long was due to COVID-19 putting the brakes on a lot of business and trade. When I first received the Transit suit about a year ago, I found the pants ran a bit large. The size 36 I received was more like 37, plus they could stretch a couple of inches from there. They were basically unable to stay “up” without a belt or zipping ...

Harley-Davidson’s Street Bob 114 Joins The 2021 Model Range

Out With the Old, In With the New I just made an article about KTM ditching the 790 model and bumping up the displacement for the 2021 model year, and it appears as though other OEMs have taken note of this philosophy (just kidding, it’s only a coincidence); Harley-Davidson has taken their Street Bob from 107 ci to 114 ci for this year. The new Street Bob 114 takes the original displacement from 1753cc and brings it up to a total of 1868cc for this year. As we all know with displacement, the p...

2021 KTM 890 Duke Gets Power and Tech Upgrades

More Powah’ Baby! For the 2021 model year, KTM decided to take the 890 Duke R’s engine and drop it into the older 790 Duke, bringing a brand new 890 Duke standard model into the Duke family picture. With the original 790 Duke falling short of the MT-09 (perhaps it was to be more closely related to the MT-07), KTM brought it upon itself to bring the bike up-to-par with the rest of the middleweight contenders and have surgically transplanted the powerhouse from the 890 Duke into the older 790 cr...
