Finally: The definitive movie about the custom moto scene

We’re surprised it’s taken so long. The ‘alt moto’ movement has been on fire for at least a decade, but it’s never made the jump onto the big screen. Oil In The Blood is the first film to catalog the builders, riders and artists who are driving the scene forward. It’s directed by Gareth Maxwell Roberts, a founding member of the Bike Shed club in London and the possessor of an unfeasibly large Rolodex. Gareth knows everybody in the business—and the cast list feels like a Who’s Who of the ...

An Industrial Designer's Story of Losing Passion, Falling in Love with Roadtrip Adventures and Designing a Watch

The following essay and photos (edited for length and clarity) come to us from Netherlands-based industrial designer Laurens de Rijke. Enjoy!______________The past five years I have spent developing my first take on a so called 'driver watch'. This first series of watches is called the Amalfi Series, named after the beautiful Amalfi Coast in Italy. It is a watch that is focused on the gentleman driver that loves to take out his car in the weekend. Maybe my story is a nice article on your website...

Harley-Davidson Shows Off Its Electric Concepts In Action

Harley Looking Ahead Harley-Davidson made a big effort towards the future with its new LiveWire. However, that bike hasn’t been very well received. Most people aren’t impressed with the range or price. Basically, $30k is a lot to ask for a motorcycle that only goes about 100 miles per charge. Harley showed off two other bikes when it debuted the LiveWire. Two smaller concepts and now there’s video.  At the X Games in Aspen, Colorado, the company brought its two small concepts along and let some...

Ten products that showcase the Pantone 2019 Color of the Year in full CMF glory!

Named as Pantone color of the year for 2019, Living Coral is an animating and life-affirming coral hue that signifies light-heartedness and positivity. The color is the kind that instantly makes one happy, with its touch of vibrance and warmth, and the minute you add it to a product, it stands out. Companies have, for long, used the coral color to make products look and feel youthful, and to make them add a splash of color to a space. Living Coral’s beauty especially lies in the fact that it goe...

Vespa Scooters Retain Over 72 Percent of Their Value After 3 Years of Ownership

The Scooters Retain Their Value Better Than Anything Else Can you think of a vehicle that would retain 72.1 percent of its value over three years of ownership? According to data from J.D. Power and Associates, Vespa scooters do just that. This year was the first year that J.D. Power tracked resale value and published a study on its findings. The published study was only on cars, but The New York Times reported that data in the study extended to two-wheeled vehicles, too. The brand sitting at th...

MAGIC BULLET. Bandit9’s ‘Merlin’ Royal Enfield Bobber

Written by Andrew Jones Let’s not beat around the bush; Bandit9’s critics have been many and varied. They called out the shop by insisting that all their bikes were nothing but Photoshop renders. They questioned their creativity and even suggested they stole ideas. Such is often the fate of those who choose to rock the boat. But for shop owner Daryl Villanueva, none of this really mattered. Like anybody with an honest-to-goodness mission in life, he knew where he was going and what he was doi...

'Don't touch my Vespa!' Why Genoa is threatening to ban its icon of cool

Nothing symbolises Italian urban chic quite like the Vespa. But in the city that gave birth to them, the diehards suddenly have a fight on their handsCorrado Nicora is talking about the flyest Vespa in Genoa: his own. For his 50th birthday, the secretary of Vespa Club Genoa decided that a new scooter was just what he needed. It had to be the tangerine GTS 300, but there was a problem: it was only on sale outside Italy. He was on the verge of shelling out the extra cash for the imported model whe...

The Microlino makes ‘adorable’ an automotive trait

As far as automobiles go, cute isn’t a term you see thrown around too often. The VW Beetle, for instance was one of the first cars to be perceived as cute (I’m more of a Mini Cooper man myself), but post its success, not many cars have harnessed that aesthetic… or harnessed it well (Google’s self-driving car looks cute, but feels more like a toy robot than a car).Inspired by the BMW Isetta from the 50s (another adorable car), the Microlino does a rather wonderful job of looking cute, but at th...

If Motorcycle Manufacturers Made Cars: A Sneak Peek!

Japanese car maker Honda started out by crafting motorcycles in 1949, and the company is still regarded as the world’s largest motorcycle manufacturer today. Unbeknownst to many, Honda made automotive piston rings for Toyota before shifting their attention to motorized two-wheeled bicycles. And the rest, as they say, is history. This is a great example of a motorcycle manufacturer who decided to make cars. But what if Aprilia, Ducati, and other iconic motorcycle brands shifted their attention to...

Butchered: An insane custom Vespa scooter from Russia

Butcher Garage is not a familiar name around these parts. But they specialize in a genre we’d love to see more of: extreme custom scooters. And judging by this pseudo-scrambler Vespa PX 150, they’ve got the imagination for it, too. Based in Saint Petersburg, Russia’s second-largest city, Butcher Garage is run by three friends: Alex, Mitya and Miha. They’ve been operating for eight years now, repairing, tuning and tweaking scoots. The crew rely heavily on the German scooter parts specialis...

A Classic Car Tour of Hageland, Belgium with WOW-Routes

Adrian tours Belgium’s Hageland blossom route in a classic 2CV with a tour package from WOW-Routes the perfect spring day-trip from Brussels. I like Belgium. I think this country has a way of showing its fiercest detractors they are wrong. It’s always cold, they say. It rains all the time; there’s no sun, they say. There’s no way you can enjoy an outdoor activity, have a picnic or a walk. They say it until the sun comes out and officially marked the beginning of spring. Then I’m sure they pu...
