Speed Read, 2 May 2021

This week we’ve got a smokin’ hot XSR155 in John Player colors from West Java, Harley’s cool and classy Electra Glide Revival, and a Moto Guzzi eBay bargain. Plus a brief appreciation of Dick ‘Bugsy’ Mann, who passed away last Monday. Yamaha XSR155 by Glanets MC In the west, the Yamaha Yard Built program has focused on middleweight customs—usually based on twins and triples like the XSR700 and XSR900. Yamaha Indonesia has its own version of the program though, and focuses on the smaller bi...

The Best Motorcycles of the 1960s

The 1960s was a transformative time for the motorcycle industry. As the mobility culture shifted from affordable motorcycles to affordable four-wheelers, the industry found itself at something of crossroads and on the cusp of an identity crisis. The 60s would bring about the beginning of the end for the British industry, an unexpected rise of the Japanese industry, and a shift from small-capacity mobility solutions to thoroughbred performance bikes. The racing scene was experiencing a golden age...

The QAnon insurrectionist who filmed himself begging to be shot and inciting rioters to storm the Capitol told the FBI he was only there as a 'journalist'

Andrew Jackson Morgan Jr. records himself during the insurrection on January 6, 2021.

PseudoVincent

Yamaha's original Virago from the early Eighties was an unusual cruiser in that it didn't just completely ape Harley Davidson design language. There were no fake rocker boxes on the engine, which instead seemed to emphasize its overhead-camness. Further, since the bike used a backbone frame with the engine as a stressed member, it was just kinda hanging our there for all to see, with no downtubes on the frame to obscure your view of the mechanicals. As you can see, it makes a great base for t...

Harley-Davidson’s 2021 Electra Glide Revival Is a Blast From the Past

We Gonna Bike Down to Electa Avenue To celebrate the upcoming ‘Icons Collection’, Harley-Davidson has decided to run a very limited-edition production of this very special Electra Glide, called the ‘Revival’. H-D bikes usually take one of two lanes: black, bad-ass, and loud, or classic and timeless. You can’t go wrong either way, but for those who lean towards the classic look for their favored Harley motorcycles, the Electra Glide Revival is sure to tickle that sensitive nostalgia nerve. The...

I compared a $5,000 e-bike with a $1,100 one, and saw why it's worth spending more on a premium bike if you can afford it

Serial 1 Rush/Cty Speed. Tim Levin/Business Insider I rode a $5,000 e-bike and a $1,100 model and compared the two. The cheaper Rad Power Bikes RadMission 1 is a great bike for the money. But the Serial 1 Rush/Cty Speed has better parts and a smoother ride, making it well worth its $5,000 price tag. See more stories on Insider's business page. Before I took the $5,000 Serial 1 Rush/Cty Speed from Harley-Davidson for a spin, I figured that high-end e-bikes - like most upmarket produc...

What's New on HBO Max in May 2021

Last summer, director Christopher Nolan had the hubris to think that Tenet was a movie people would risk their lives to see. The first major blockbuster to open in theaters following the start of the pandemic, it was also... the last major blockbuster to open in theaters, after it kinda bombed. But this month it is…Read more...

“I got to say, you’re looking older.”—Ellis “I am older.”—Sheriff Ed Tom Bell Amongst my Rushmore of cherished films, No Country For Old Men anoints the viewer with myriad lyrical gems and witticisms. The above exchange percolated to the front when, not five minutes into my arrival at Harley-Davidson’s press launch of their new Pan America 1250, an affable employee offered two-inch “Tall Risers” and a “Tallboy” seat. At 6’6” and having worked on the OEM side for numerous bike launches, this...

Hidemo Style: A 1970s Shovelhead from one of Japan’s best

The Japanese custom scene sets rather than follows trends. Japan’s top builders each have a unique and instantly recognizable style, and the machines they produce are usually hard to pigeonhole. This 1970 Harley-Davidson FLH Shovelhead from Hideya Togashi of Hide Motorcycle (that’s ‘Hee-day’) illustrates my point beautifully. Togashi-san’s client simply asked him to build a bobber, leaving the rest to the builder’s discretion. A wise move. Taking loose inspiration from the boardtrackers of...

Patent Files Reveal Harley-Davidson Is Working On Automated Braking System

Patent filings reveal that the sword and shield are hard at work developing an automated braking system that works much like the adaptive cruise control (thanks to front and rear radaring) I mentioned earlier. Although this system will use similar technology to the adaptive ...

The Best Motorcycles of the 1950s

The 1950s was an interesting decade for the motorcycle industry. As countries began to show signs of economic improvement after the devastation of World War II, motorcycle manufacturers could begin to innovate in new directions. While affordable mobility was still an important part of a motorcycle’s design, the humble motorcycle was slowly being replaced by cheaper and more attractive cars as a means of transportation. Sidecars were on the way out, and the rise of the automobile was in full swin...
