Get 20 Percent Off an AGV Helmet By Trading In Your Old One

Get Rid of That Old Lid and Get a Good Deal For a limited time, AGV is offering people a pretty good deal. All you need to do is bring in your old helmet to one of its physical stores and you’ll get 20 percent off of a new AGV helmet. AGV calls its program Trade And Save. It’s pretty self-explanatory. There’s not a lot to figure out here. The only catch is that you have to be near one of the physical locations for the Dainese stores. Dainese owns AGV, so that’s why you can walk into the store t...

The Killer: A front wheel drive motorcycle from Rodsmith

The concept of the patron is well established in the world of art. Charles Saatchi is almost a household name in the UK, but before him we had New Yorker Peggy Guggenheim—who anchored the careers of Pollock and Rothko. Parallels are now edging into the modern custom motorcycle scene, and one of the leading lights is Bobby Haas of the Haas Moto Museum in Dallas. Bobby has built up a collection of 130-plus extraordinary motorcycles, and occasionally commissions them too. Hazan is one of his...

Can-Am to Hold Multi-City Ride Events for Ryker

Want to Test Out Life on Three Wheels? I’m not a particularly huge fan of the whole reverse trike thing, but I do think they have a place in the wonderful world of motorcycles. When it comes to reverse trikes, Can-Am is at the top, and now it wants to get more folks on the Ryker so it’s hosting some events in multiple states.  The Can-Am Ryker Ride Show will be at 12 different cities across the country. The first event will occur on March 14-16 and then go on from there. The point of each event...

Indian Motorcycle and Motorcycle Missions Do ‘Motorcycle Therapy’ Build-Off

Audi’s new V2I feature helps drivers hit every green light

Audi has added a new feature to the vehicle-to-infrastructure technology embedded in its newer models that’s designed to help drivers catch every green light. The tech, called GLOSA or Green Light Optimized Speed Advisory, is part of the automaker’s built-in traffic light-reading technology. And Audi says it’s the first automaker to include this GLOSA feature in its cars. It all began in 2016 when Audi launched traffic light information, a system that enables the car to  communicate with the ...

SUPER DOOPER HAWK. Moto Conspiracy’s Stunning ’64 Honda Street Tracker

Written by Marlon Slack In a place where bigger is always better, it’s surprising to see a shop like the Moto Conspiracy. The Dallas-based workshop is a neat little operation that specialises in ultra-clean little cafe racers. But this time they’ve branched out, with their first street tracker — a 1964 Honda Superhawk designed to look like a factory optioned build. That’s right, The Moto Conspiracy’s Isiah Booth is new to the whole tracker thing. It all started a few years ago when made a ...

Coyotes Weekly: A Powerless Power Play

Last week, we touched on how important it would be for the Arizona Coyotes to get off to a good start in the second half of the season if they had serious aspirations of making a run at a playoff spot in the Western Conference. Well, after a 0-2-1 road trip in the first week of play following the All-Star Break, it’s safe to say things aren’t off to a great start. Coyotes Week in Review After a nine-day layoff from game action due to the All-Star Break, the Coyotes traveled to the site of the ...

RED SHIFT. Walt Siegl’s Brutal ‘WSM SBK’ Custom Ducati Superbike

Written by Andrew Jones While factory sportsbikes and the Superbike World Championships aren’t our usual fair, there’s one thing we’ve learnt from the many years of doing what we do. When a customiser like New Hampshire’s Walt Siegl drops a build designed to slug it out with the formula’s best and brightest, you sit up and pay attention. And boy, are we glad we did. Built from scratch around a four valve Ducati 1098 power plant, Siegl has again wowed us with his passion for moto racing and hi...

The Kawasaki ‘W1R’ that took seven years to build

The bikes that are revealed on these pages are usually hot off the press. The shoot is finished, the images are graded and an email lands in our inbox within a couple of days. This amazing Kawasaki, however, first surfaced two years ago at The Quail Gathering. And it’s only just been shot properly. But that’s okay, because the bike took master builder Mike LaFountain seven years to complete—and nearly broke him in the process. Mike has created a stunning replica of the ultra-rare W1R, whic...

Weekly Roundup, Friday 12 October, 2018

An Air Niugini Boeing 737 missed the runway but safely landed in the water – see story, below. Good morning First computer problems then medical problems (an ankle) forced an unplanned silence upon me, but here I am, happily back once more and sharing another selection of the great and the grim. Simultaneously on the great and grim side of things, we had a cancellation off our Christmas “Landcruise” of Northern France and Belgium.  As I do in such cases, I’m happy to give half the deposit as a...

This tiny Honda SS50 is called ‘Wild Horse’ for a reason

George Woodman doesn’t build many bikes, but his creations always raise a big smile around the EXIF offices. This is ‘Wild Horse,’ a heavily modified Honda SS50 that’s as fresh as a mouthful of popping candy. It’s got plenty of zing too: the original 49 cc air-cooled single has been swapped out for a 190 cc engine, prepared by the pit bike tuner Stomp. Power is up to 22 frisky horses, which translates to a very lively ride on a machine with a wheelbase of just 46 inches (1.18m). ‘George ...

THE ROCKET. Rescued From The Scrap Heap

Written by Bobby Haas Prior to ever being installed in the Haas Moto Museum, every vintage cycle in the Collection is treated to a “day of beauty” in the shop at Strokers Dallas, where it is bathed and primped to remove the grime that has built up over the years. After its beauty treatment, each cycle is stored in a locked warehouse that may be accessed only through another warehouse. As any parent would do, I often visited “the kids” in their halfway house at Strokers in the months leading u...

1930 MONET-GOYON SUPERSPORT. The Cold Scorch of Fear

Rear-end Collision Costs Toyota $242 Million

After deliberating eight hours, a Texas jury ordered Toyota to pay $242.1 million to compensate a Dallas family involved in a 2016 rear-end collision that seriously injured two children.

Exploring east Texas backroads in the Bugtussle Caddy

The “Bugtussle Caddy” has participated in more than a dozen “Treks.” Photos by the author unless otherwise stated. I couldn’t take my eyes off that Cadillac. Built in 1941, it was older than I, original in every respect and probably in better shape. The factory paint looked good and its massive V-8 purred in the morning drizzle. “There are mechanical concerns…always…you never really know,” its owner, Hank Mulvilhill, said before we departed his Richardson, Texas, home. Hank first drove the Cadd...

THE SEELEY-TAIT RACER. A 40-Year Love Affair

Bobby Haas is a bike collector, author, Nat Geo photographer and ex-financier who is currently working hard on his latest endeavour, the Haas Moto Museum in Dallas. He owns five Hazan bikes amongst 160 others and when he’s not bidding at moto auctions, he likes to write. As a guy who knows more than most on the joyous cultural phenomenon that is motorcycling, we asked him if he would write for us; this is the result.

Getting Personal: The KTM Max Hazan Built For Himself

There’s a definite style to a Hazan Motorworks bike: a hint of steampunk, lots of beautifully twisted and burnished metal, and impossibly elegant proportions. It’s an expensive endeavor, and Max operates in the same rarified atmosphere as Ian Barry of Falcon and the Japanese moto-artist Chicara Nagata. Luckily, there are collectors and museums that have the funds to commission bikes like this, so the rest of us can enjoy them vicariously. But what happens when Max builds a bike for himself, w...

A Modern-Day Majestic: ‘The Six’ by Revival Cycles

The Handbuilt Show is happening this coming weekend in Austin, Texas. One of the USA’s premium custom bike events, it’s packed each year with lustworthy handcrafted machines, curated by hosts Revival Cycles. But even though this six-cylinder, hub-steered oddity is Revival’s handiwork—and will fit right in—it won’t be at the show this year. That’s because it’s just kicked off a one-year residency at the newly opened Haas Moto Museum at Dallas. Museum owner and collector Bobby Haas has been ...

The venerable Chevrolet “stovebolt” six-cylinder engine first showed up in 1929. Photo by Jeff Koch.
