Fighting Talk: Harley design boss Brad Richards

Harley-Davidson is under a microscope right now: its every move is dissected, examined and critiqued. And there have been plenty of moves lately. They’ve killed the Dyna while relaunching the Softail. They’ve announced a barrage of new models, including the Livewire. But although revenue is holding up at the moment, sales figures have been declining for several years—and were down 10% in 2018. It’s a challenging time for the Motor Company. So I sat down in Milwaukee with Harley’s VP of Styl...

What your check engine light really means

The check engine light is ubiquitous. The little orange light is on every dashboard and you are virtually guaranteed that it'll come on at some point during the time you own your car.  The light is triggered by the car's onboard diagnostic system and is usually related to the fuel system, air intake, and emissions. According to Kelley Blue Book's Michael Harley, the light doesn't mean your is in imminent danger, but it does mean you should go have it checked out before the issues get any worse...

DOPE DIRIGIBLE. Kacerwagen’s ‘Zeppelina V72’ Board Tracker

Written by Martin Hodgson They were the original kings of the race track, but you won’t ever find a replica of one hanging out at your local cafe bike meet. However over recent years with TV shows like Harley and the Davidsons and Sons of Speed, along with the input of America’s best builders like Billy Lane and Rick Petko, the board tracker is back with a vengeance. But what do you do when you live in a country where finding a ’20s Indian in a barn is as likely as finding the fabled pot of g...

Spirit of the XLCR: A Fat Bob custom from Blacktrack

Blacktrack Motors have got cafe racer design down to a fine art. Their first build was one of the sharpest Honda CX500 cafes we’ve ever featured, and they followed it up with a pixel perfect custom Thruxton. Now they’ve tackled their most ambitious project yet, the BT-03—a cafe racer based on the Harley-Davidson Fat Bob 114 FXFBS. The Fat Bob 114 is one of the most fun bikes in Harley’s range. Its 114 ci power plant generates 155 Nm of torque, and handling from the new generation Softail ...

Harley-Davidson Updates the LiveWire

Now Slightly More Enticing When the Harley-Davidson LiveWire debuted, the bike was hit hard by consumers and media for not being good enough and for being way too expensive. We joined in on this dog pile. The bike simply didn’t appear to offer enough to be a competitive bike. Well, Harley has made some updates to the model and they’ve made the bike a little more interesting. Here are the big updates that you should probably know. First off, the bike’s range was increased from the 110 miles that...

The 2019 Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Standard Is the Dressed Down Dresser

For a More Visceral Touring Experience Harley-Davidson’s big dresser motorcycles are what many people think of when they think of the brand and for good reason. Harley sells a lot of these big bikes.

The Best of the 2019 Mama Tried Motorcycle Show

There are only four or five months of good riding weather in the American Midwest. The rest of the time, motorcyclists keep sane by wrenching. And nothing offers more inspiration than the annual Mama Tried motorcycle show in Milwaukee. The sixth edition of the show happened just last weekend, shortly after the polar vortex was done ravaging the region. Visitors huddled away from the snow inside the Eagles Club—a ballroom and live music venue with a pseudo-psychedelic interior. Inside, cust...

Building a Street Bob custom using Harley’s rulebook

More Harley-Davidsons go under the grinder than any other make of bike. But surprisingly, The Motor Co. seldom commissions customs from big-name builders. Instead, it has developed the annual Battle of the Kings contest—where dealers customize a bike within a very strict rule set. To get a taste of how hard that is, we flew to Milwaukee for the second Harley-sponsored ‘Brewtown Throwdown’ event. The Brewtown Throwdown is a build-off between teams, made up of people from different walks of ...

COOL CHANGE. Benjie’s Classic Harley Softail Bobber

Written by Andrew Jones When the new wave of Japanese customs rocked up in the late noughties, it was like the 70-odd years of custom bike history before that point didn’t exist. We barged into the room  with our new-fangled cafe racers, brats and trackers and turned up our noses at pretty much anything that wasn’t ordained as that month’s hot new trend. But as many shops now ponder their 142nd cafe racer build, the trends that prevailed in the 70s, 80s and 90s are now being seen with new, mo...

'Iron Man 3' Finds Its Hero in Crisis

None One question loomed over Iron Man 3 (Shane Black, 2013) from its inception: Why doesn't he just call the Avengers? After all, Tony Stark/Iron Man had just appeared in the biggest superhero film of all time, a team-up consisting of him, Captain America, the Hulk, Thor, and the combined resources of SHIELD (including Nick Fury, Black Widow and Hawkeye). How could the filmmakers devise a serious, dangerous scenario for the character in which he would not call his super-friends? Longtime comic...

Tesla CEO Elon Musk said during the automaker's fourth-quarter earnings call that Autopilot, Tesla's semi-autonomous driver-assistance system, was capable of full autonomy on highways. No auto or tech company has created a fully or semi-autonomous driving system that can operate on the highway without any human attention, Mary Cummings, a professor at Duke who studies the interaction between humans and autonomous driving systems, told Business Insider.

Harley-Davidson is betting big on an electric future, but the company could be making a big mistake (HOG)

Wall Street thinks Harley-Davidson is in trouble and needs to take radical steps to fix its business. But the last time Harley-Davidson faced a crisis, during the Great Recession, it went back to basics and prospered. Harley's biggest challenge is a tariff-supportive administration in Washington. There's a strong sense that Harley-Davidson, the 116-year-old American icon, is in trouble.

Harley-Davidson wants to build electric bikes — but a widely followed Wall Street analyst says there's a better way for the struggling motorcycle brand to re-invent itself

Harley-Davidson unveiled two electric concepts last week, with one aimed directly at city-dwellers. Those come ahead of the company's hotly anticipated launch of its first full-size electric motorcycle later this year.  But it may be too little too late, says Adam Jonas of Morgan Stanley. Instead, he suggests the brand look to four wheels. Harley-Davidson is going electric. It has to. In the face of four years of declining sales, the iconic motorcycle brand is set to launch its first full-siz...
