The Best Motorcycles of the 1970s

While every decade has its icons, the 1970s have so many good models to choose from. It was a time when the Japanese were really stamping their authority over the scene, flexing muscles and cylinders with each other, and driving once-mighty international brands into obscurity. Despite the changing landscape, the 70s created some of the most exciting and innovative motorcycles of all time. The 70s was such a good decade for motorcycles that we’re currently in the middle of a revival. Think about ...

Meet Raceward Studios. They’re Italian, they’re curators of state-of-the-art virtual racing games, and they’re about to welcome home their newest brainchild: RiMS Racing. If you’ve ever played Grand Theft Auto or iRacer, you’ll know what I’m talking about when I say that the huge list of options available to customize and pimp out a virtual ride of choice is highly attractive.

BMW Patents Gesture Tech for Motorcycles

BMW is looking to bring a more innovative approach to making adjustments on the go. They patented gesture controls that will use sensors located on motorcycle handlebars per the drawings.  This new patented technology will get commands from the movements of the rider’s fingers while in the saddle. The drawing shows sensors located either on the handguards or on the bottom of the rear-view mirrors.  The concept was developed to allow riders to keep both hands on the handlebars – insuring the...

Motorcycles Destined to Die By 2030

There’s no doubt that the motorcycling landscape is changing. Over a relatively short period of time, we’ve seen a bigger focus on emissions regulations, the development of affordable electric models, and unexpected new trends. While we know that many governments across the globe have ambitious plans to phase out the production of new internal combustion engine-powered vehicles over the next decade, we’ve been left wondering what models will survive. While there’s no way of telling how our favor...

Berlin Won’t See 2021 Motorrad Days Festival Due To BMW’s Cancellation

See ‘Ya In 2022! Although many motorcycle festivals in America such as Daytona’s Bike Week will continue this year despite the pandemic, Berlin won’t be quite as lucky (or unlucky, depending on your views regarding COVID-19) as BMW has withdrawn their participation in the 2021 Motorrad Days Festival. BMW had cancelled their 2020 plans due to pandemic reasons after moving the festival from Munich to Berlin, and that precedent will continue for the 2021 calendar year. BMW Motorrad enthusiasts fly...

Play Mystic for Me: A BMW R80R scrambler from Warsaw

BMW Motorrad has a few quirky gems in the back catalog—like the early-90s R80R Mystic. As one of the last two-valve boxers before the four-valve ‘1100’ took over, the Mystic bundled some of BMW’s newer tech into a ‘factory custom’ aesthetic that didn’t quite gel. Released as both R80 and R100 versions (depending on your country), the Mystic was sort of a road-going version of the adventure travel R100GS. It borrowed the GS’s tank, seat and burly Paralever swingarm, and it came with 18F/17R tu...

BMW May Not be Done Playing Offense with the Cruiser Lineup

In 2020, BMW rolled out the R18 – the mammoth of cruisers that combined retro styling with a 1800cc engine to make even the most American of motorcycles quiver.  Upon the announcement of the R18, it was already known that there would be two more variants to follow. These three bikes would diversify the lineup and allow customers to pick up an R18 fit for their style.  At this point, BMW has released the R18 and R18 Classic which features saddlebags, a windscreen, and other minor changes fro...

Bring Some Grunt To Your BMW S 1000 XR With New HP Corse Slip-On Exhausts

 Bump Up Your “Brap”! HP Corse – a notable Italian exhaust manufacturer – has three new Evoxtreme slip-on exhausts for your BMW S 1000 XR. Slip-on exhausts can either be a time-saver or a time-waster. Replacing an entire system will often give you the benefit of some extra horsepower, but a slip-on option can be a nightmare to mount if it’s not specifically tailored to your bike. Luckily for BMW S 1000 XR owners looking into slip-on options, these Evoxtreme’s come ready for seamless integration...

[REVIEW] UClear Motion 4 Lite

Introduction Hmm, must be fall. We’ve had our first snow fall, mixed in with the brightly coloured leaves still drifting off the tree branches, with both settling onto the still green lawns; and now we are finishing up almost two weeks of early fall-like weather; up and down we go – the past, present and future well represented it seems. But for the present, despite our COVID-19 environment and time of year, we can still anticipate (hope for) some late season, albeit cool, riding – a continuanc...
