Winging It: Deus Japan reworks the obscure Honda GL400

They couldn’t have picked a worse time, but our friends at Deus ex Machina Japan have finally managed to open their new store in Tokyo’s historic Asakusa district. And they’re celebrating in style—with a very sharp and slightly offbeat Honda GL400 street tracker. If you’re not overly familiar with the GL400, don’t worry—it’s not a particularly well documented model. Officially designated the ‘GL400 Wing,’ it was effectively a downscaled CX500, sold only in the Japanese market. So it came with...

The best golf balls

Like picking out the right clubs, choosing which golf ball to use for a day spent on the links is an important decision — and not all are created equal.Whether you're just learning the game of golf or have several years of the sport under your belt, you'll want to make sure you find a ball suited to your play style and preference — and just because you like the balls the pros use on the weekends, doesn't mean you'll have the same outcome they do. To help, we've tested a variety of the top golf b...

Researchers Find That Radar Can Be Used to Detect a Nail in a Tire Long Before It Goes Flat

Your car’s dashboard is a smorgasbord of information when it comes to the health and performance of your vehicle. But the one thing it can’t warn drivers about is when the tread on their tires has worn out. It’s a safety risk that researchers from Carnegie Mellon University are focusing on with a new real-time…Read more...

What the Hell is a Soft Golf Ball Anyway?

Depending on whom you ask, the timeline and players vary but there’s a version of events leading to the emergence of soft golf balls that goes a little something like this. Precept made the Lady. Dudes loved it, but you know…ego. And, so, Lady spawned Laddie. By the time Bridgestone made the RX, golf companies had figured out that, performance implications aside, golfers liked soft golf balls. DUO was born. Callaway transitioned from SR-1 to Chrome Soft and in doing so created the ball that chan...

Microsoft collaborated with Bridgestone on system that alerts drivers immediately when they get a nail in their tire

Microsoft and Bridgestone created a Tire Damage Monitoring System that can determine tire damage in real-time. It is also able to log when and where the damage occurred to the tire. The TDMS is currently available on cars with the cloud-based Microsoft Connected Vehicle Platform. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Your tires — the only contact patch between you and the road — are arguably the most important part of the car, so it's important to stay on top of them. An unlikel...

Penfold Golf Balls: Another Direct-To-Consumer Brand?

Golf brands come and golf brands go. That’s simply the way of the world. There was a time when Penfold Golf was the name in golf balls in Europe. That time, however, is long gone. So, it’s fair to ask why is an English squash pro living in Philly trying to bring the brand back in North America? It’s also fair to ask if we really need another Direct-to-Consumer golf ball brand. Penfold’s history is a fascinating look at the way things used to be. The new Penfold Golf is an interesting look at the...

Honma, North America and the Quest To Figure It All Out

Can Honma figure out North America? At every PGA Show, MyGolfSpy asks the same question: Which Japanese equipment companies are still trying to figure out North America? This year, for the first time, we weren’t sure if Honma should still be on the list. Yonex, Epon, Fujimoto, ONOFF, Fourteen, PRGR and others have tried. It’s possible but it takes commitment and cash. Srixon, Mizuno and Bridgestone have done it. Even Miura has its own premium forged niche under the 8AM corporate umbrella. For ye...

How COVID-19 Is Impacting Golf’s Big Brands

“It’s crazy, crazy times.” “Chaos.” “It’s f’n nuts.” Consider those summary thoughts from a few of our contacts inside medium to large golf equipment companies as they come to terms with COVID-19. It’s not any kind of a stretch to say they speak for everyone. Let’s not mince words. The impact of COVID-19 on the golf equipment industry’s biggest players will be brutal. It already is and the longer it drags, the worse it’s going to get. While some have taken aggressive action, some believe the nex...

Your next tire change could be performed by a robot

Waiting in a service station waiting room purgatory one day, Victor Darolfi had a simple thought. “I sat at America’s Tires for three hours and thought, hey, we use robots to put tires on at the factory,” the founder explains. “Why don’t we bring robots into the service industry?” The notion was the first seed behind RoboTire, the Bay Area-based robotics company, which the former Spark Robotics CEO founded in October 2018. Now ready to come out of stealth as part of the latest batch of Y Comb...

PROJECT TALOS: Honda CBX750 by Spitfire Speed Shop

Written by Martin Hodgson You see them advertised all the time, usually on eBay, a project that is 95% complete according to the seller and just needs a couple of things to finish. Often they’ll even go so far as to claim just how much it’ll be worth upon completion and highlight the bargain you’ll be getting. But rarely is it true, 95% complete without any mention of all the real problems that prevented them from finishing the build in the first place. So when a bike with a similar tale arriv...

Why should Tiger be confident after Farmers? Let us count the ways ...

Six weeks later, not much has changed, as Woods hit a number of superb iron shots (including one that somehow didn't drop for eagle) and ranked eighth in strokes gained: approach. Woods broke in a new Bridgestone ball at Torrey Pines, and he reported that he's about a quarter-club longer with his irons and can more easily cut through the wind. Over time, he'll knock off the rust and tighten up his distance control, so that he won't have a costly misfire like his third shot in...

Bicycles with Airless Tires to Debut at Tokyo Olympics

Non-pneumatic, airless tires have been a long time coming, but have yet to crack the consumer market. Bridgestone may change that, or at least get them into the public consciousness; as tire sponsor of this summer's Tokyo Olympics, the company will provide a fleet of bicycles (presumably in Olympic Village, the details are unclear) kitted out with their non-pneumatic tires.So when will they go from bicycles to consumer cars?

The War on Air Continues

The great Sheldon Brown wrote these words on the subject of airless tires: Of all the inventions that came out of the bicycle industry, probably none is as important and useful as Dr. Dunlop's pneumatic tire. Airless tires have been obsolete for over a century, but crackpot "inventors" keep trying to bring them back. They are heavy, slow and give a harsh ride. They are also likely to cause wheel damage, due to their poor cushioning ability. A pneumatic tire uses all of the air in the whol...

Keeping it in the family: A BSA Thunderbolt from Italy

If you lived in the 1900s or earlier, your career was probably dictated by the line of work that your father happened to be in. Entire lifetimes were spent honing skills that were passed down from generation to generation. The formula bred quality and craftsmanship. But the modern world has increasingly turned its back on the concept of the multi-generational family business. They’re seldom seen, but if you look hard enough, you can still find a genuine father and son business. And in ou...
