New Neurobiological Study Shows Benefits of Motorcycle Riding

Go Ride It’s Good For You According to a new study funded by Harley-Davidson, riding a motorcycle can reduce stress and increase focus. The study found that riding a motorcycle also increased heart rates by 11 percent and adrenaline levels by 27 percent. That’s essentially the same as doing a light workout. Reducing stress is probably one of the most important findings of the study. Motorcyclists have been saying it for years, but now they have a study to point to that backs them up. The study ...

Lightning Motorcycles Teases Its Second Model, the Lightning Strike

A New Electric Motorcycle for the Masses While the LS-218 electric motorcycle from Lighting Motorcycles is a high-dollar item designed for high-speed racing, the company’s second bike should be more pedestrian. The company just released a teaser for its new motorcycle called the Lighting Strike.  Lightning Motorcycles claims its new bike will “shock the industry in every dimension.” It shared only a few stats for the motorcycle and didn’t give us a full look just a couple of headlights. Accordi...

Electric Mobility Innovation at CES 2019

Beyond cars, some of our favorite one- and two-wheel vehicles At this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the attendees were hovering, around many major car brands’ electric vehicles and the numerous future-fantasy aircrafts on show. Audi and Mercedes-Benz unveiled theirs, while Nissan debuted a revision of an earlier debut, and Bell collaborated with Uber. But, some of the most practical innovations on exhibition this year plan to solve …

How To Build A Sustainable Small Business

by Joseph Brady, Senior Director of Digital Marketing for Reliant Funding Starting a business, growing it and sustaining in the market are the three chapters of a small business story. Usually, small business owners don’t think beyond their quarterly or annual plans and they forget their long-term goals due to everyday hurdles. Building a business needs strong strategy and value proposition. Each business will have its ups and downs but adhering to the following tips can help with sustainable l...

Custom Bikes Of The Week: 13 January, 2019

Ever heard of the Suzuki XF650 Freewind before? Neither had we, but we love this custom scrambler from the Netherlands. We’ve also got a Buell M2 Cyclone that actually looks attractive, and a Honda CR750 racer priced at a quarter of a million dollars—and worth every cent. Buell M2 Cyclone by Officine Urgani Even the most ardent Buell fanboy would have to admit that the M2 Cyclone is an ugly bike, even by Buell’s admittedly variable standards. The M2 wasn’t a bad bike though, and with 91 hp...

BAGS OF FUN. Nico Naeye’s ‘Brut Voorut’ Harley Super Glide Cafe

Written by Andrew Jones It’s time for an embarrassing confession. In the past, I have looked at some of the winners of the AMD World Championships and had a giggle. Or two. Hell, sometimes I’ve LOL’d, if that’s what the kids are still calling it these days. I’ll be frank – there’s some totally insane bikes in there. Crack smoking, batshit flinging, head scratching, crazy-ass bikes. Which somehow makes the cool ones look even better than if they were all by their lonesome. Enter Dutchman and b...

Street tracker gold: building a road-legal Harley XR750

The biggest cliché in motorcycle journalism is the ‘listicle’ of the best-looking bikes ever made. If we ever run out of ideas and succumb at EXIF, you can guarantee that the Harley-Davidson XR750 flat tracker will be in our list. And we’d lament that it was never street legal. So this streetable XR750 from Brad Peterson is right up our, er, street. And it’s no replica or lookalike, either. Power comes from a genuine factory race motor, used briefly in 2007 by National #80 Rich King, which...

Harley-Davidson debuts its all-electric ‘LiveWire’ motorcycle at CES

Harley-Davidson today announced that it has started taking pre-orders for its first all-electric motorcycle, the LiveWire. For automakers, it’s a mad dash to the finish line in an attempt to compete with the likes of Tesla, BMW, Volkswagen and others. For Harley-Davidson, it’s about facing technological challenges — two wheels and a smaller chassis, for starters — while being able to convince its base that this is the same bad-ass machine they’re accustomed to, only better. Harley-Davidson, now ...

New Year’s resolutions Wisconsinites

It’s that time of the season when we all plan out a list of resolutions for the year ahead of us, but in Wisconsin, our beloved culture makes certain goals almost impossible to achieve. From cutting back on our consumption of cheese to buying fewer knickknacks, here are seven New Year’s resolutions Wisconsinites make but rarely keep. 1. Drink less Miller Lite, old fashioneds, homebrews, and anything else alcoholic. Wisconsin ranks as one the top 10 states that consume the most alcohol, so ...

The Stink of Dog Dealers and Pit Fighters

Art by Kevin Brockbank. In the past I have written about the pit bull folks that seem to pop up at the edge of American terrier work. These folks blow in, leave a stink, and typically blow out again a few years later.To be fair, these folks seem to be a purely American phenomenon; I have not see their analog in Europe or Canada.Who are these folks? All are young men. All appear to be wanna be dog dealers and wanna be tough guys. Almost all seem to gravitate to the Patterdale Terrier -...

Editor’s Choice: An Alternative Top 10 for 2018

It’s that time of year when we throw the data out the window and pick our personal favorite customs of 2018. Our traditional Bike EXIF Top Ten is based on bikes that melted our servers—but these are the bikes that also melted our hearts. There are a few ground rules: we only include bikes that we’ve written full features on (sorry, Bikes of the Week alumni). And we don’t feature more than one from a particular builder. We also exclude machines that have already popped up on our data-driven To...

Double Trouble: Hot Chop’s twin-engined Harley drag bike

Squeezing two Harley engines into one chassis is a special form of lunacy, most commonly found in the drag racing scene in the USA. In the glory days of the mid-70s, Bonnie Truett linked a pair of Sportster motors and nitro-injected them. A decade later, Elmer Trett built an even faster twin-engined bike: the ‘Freight Train,’ which ran the quarter mile in under seven seconds. Despite the wealth of tuning talent in Japan, no double-engined Harley has been built there—until now. Kentaro Na...

Revealed: The Top 10 Custom Motorcycles of 2018

What a year it’s been for the custom scene. With so many great bikes crossing our radar, it’s almost impossible to pick out any personal favorites. So it’s just as well that our annual Bike Of The Year roundup is purely data driven. It’s based on page views, incoming links, and the number of social media shares. As always, it’s also weighted according to how long ago the bike was featured. A couple of interesting points to note: If we weren’t dealing with customs here, two factory bikes wou...

Nicky Hayden tribute: Analog’s Honda XR650L flat tracker

Nicky Hayden left a massive hole in the motorcycling world—and in all of our hearts—when he passed away unexpectedly in May last year. In a fitting tribute, the Kentucky Kid was inducted into the AMA Hall of Fame earlier this month. To commemorate the occasion, the Hall of Fame Museum commissioned two tribute bikes from Chicago’s Analog Motorcycles. American Honda donated the motorcycles, including a CBR1000RR to be wrapped in Hayden’s Repsol MotoGP livery. But the direction of the second bik...

Competition Hot: A vintage-style Harley ironhead

Trends ebb and flow in the custom world. And with them, the fortunes of bike builders. It might be tough at the top, but it’s even harder to stay there over the years. Japanese builder Hideya Togashi is a man with more staying power than most. He took his first Best Of Show award from Mooneyes in 2006, and he’s collected several more over the years. And if you look closely at his latest Harley ironhead build, it’s easy to see why he is so fêted. Togashi-san runs Hide Motorcycle (pronounce...
