This BMW R nineT is a homage to Rickman Métisse

In the world of vintage desert sleds, the Rickman Triumph Métisse reigns supreme. It was a pretty legit scrambler in its day, and also one of best-looking motorcycles from that era. For VTR Customs boss Dani Weidmann, though, there’s an even deeper connection. Back in the 80s, 17-year-old Dani took an apprenticeship at a company called Meier & Lutziger—the Swiss importer of Rickman frames and parts. Dani fell in love with the classy design of these throwback sleds. When the VTR Customs cr...

Tropical Tectonic Collisions May Have Unleashed Ancient Ice Ages

Massive tectonic collisions in the tropics may have caused Earth's last three great ice ages.Before each of these ice ages, new research finds, collisions between continents and island arcs built long chains of mountains in the tropical latitudes. These mountains may have set the stage for a cooling climate: As they eroded into the seas, they would have altered the chemistry of the ocean so that it could have absorbed more carbon from the atmosphere. Because atmospheric carbon traps heat, le...

A Honda CB350 restomod built by a jet aircraft mechanic

It’s quite rare for a CB cafe racer to land in the Bike EXIF inbox these days. And we politely turn down most that do. But this CB350 from New Jersey went straight to the top of the pile: it’s an absolutely state of the art restomod, and so beautifully finished we’d almost be scared to ride it. It comes from Merlin Cycleworks, which is run by 56-year-old Mark Kouri. Mark’s been an aircraft mechanic for over 30 years—repairing jets for United Airlines—and you can see his attention to detail...

The actor confirmed that he may or may not lend his voice via voice over, but he won’t be popping-up in the show anytime soon. A Continental TV show without Ian McShane sounds unthinkable, but that’s what’s happening. The upcoming John Wick spin-off series The Continental will...

Could Royal Enfield Build a 650 Version of the Himalayan?

Bigger Engine, More Adventure The Royal Enfield Himalayan currently comes with a 411cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine. While that’s sufficient for many riders around the world, rumor is Royal Enfield is thinking of a 650 Himalayan. According to MoreBikes, a 650cc variant could be right around the corner.  It makes sense, really. The one complaint I saw about the Himalayan from the seasoned adventure riders was that it could use a little more power. Royal Enfield already has a 650cc engine, t...
