A Test Drive, and the Design Story Behind Range Rover's Most Unusual Vehicle

SoHo is one of New York City's most pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods--and paradoxically, the best place in Manhattan to see every car design on Earth. On Lafayette, bland rideshare Toyotas share lanes with Teslas. On West Broadway's restaurant row, delivery trucks are wedged in with Lamborghinis, Ferraris, the odd Bugatti. The streets in between are the parking lot of the upper middle class, awash with everything else--primarily crossover SUVs of German and Japanese heritage, so numerous and si...

Preserving and Restoring Your Car Battery

The Noco Genius battery charger/restorer can extend the life of your car battery, and restore a failing battery to good health. While much focus these days is on new battery types; generally the most expensive investment in batteries we currently make is with the decidedly old fashioned lead-acid battery in our vehicles.  The technology dates back to the very first ever rechargeable batteries in 1859, and while there have been modern-day tweaks such as the development in the 1970s of “sealed” or...

10 tips for renting and driving a car in Spain

For the first few years I lived in Spain, I didn’t have a car. There’s really no need to get behind the wheel if you’re living in a city or visiting another city on vacation. But sometimes you get the urge for a road trip, and the Spanish rail and bus system doesn’t always reach the best off-the-beaten-path destinations. That’s when it’s time to hop in a car and see Spain from behind the windshield. Renting a car will get you to little villages, mountains, secluded beaches, and vineyards you’d n...

JEWEL, BRITANNIA. Old Empire’s ‘Gypsy’ Honda CB360 Cafe Racer

Written by Marlon Slack When you’re as good as Suffolk’s Old Empire Motorcycles you don’t need to go hunting for work. Hell, their incredible history of customising classic motorcycles has customers practically begging them to create a bike. And that’s what’s happened with their latest creation, a 1976 Honda CB360 that the client had to harass, harangue and coerce them into building. And we’re all the better for it.

Alpinestars Apex Drystar Gloves Hands-On Review

It’s easy enough to make a cheap motorbike glove. There are plenty of them already on the market. Take some cheap leather, or polyester fabric, add some plastic armor at the knuckles, some Velcro at the cuff, and you’re almost there to having a ready-made motorbike glove. It’s a lot tougher to make a quality motorbike glove that actually goes some way to keeping a rider comfortable, warm, dry, and protected in the event of a crash.
