Jan 30, 2015 - 11:04 AM - by

The history of motorcycle engines powering other vehicles goes back a long way. Look at the original Morgan 3 Wheeler, for example. Almost a century ago, J.A.P. bike engines were plunked onto the front of a strange piece of machinery with two wheels in front and one in the back. It proved to be popular and a rather high-performing vehicle in its time. For this Top 10 list we take a look at other applications for motorcycle engines. As you can imagine with a list like this, there are a wide variety of vehicles. Some are production cars, while others are one-offs or boutique items. And yes, even though this is

For decades the “airhead” became the cherished mainstay of the Bayerische Motoren Werke (a.k.a. Bavarian Motor Works) while enjoying a non-stop evolution. But then in 1983 BMW took off on a design tangent that created a love-hate reaction still

Waterproof Winter Jackets/Pants/Suits Buyer’s Guide

Jan 20, 2015 - 12:38 PM - by


Winter riding means different things to different people, but we can all agree riding in the winter means chilly temperatures and a high possibility for rain. So, for this week’s winter buyer’s guide, we’re bringing you jackets and pants, all built to keep you dry and warm when the elements conspire against you. We’ve thrown in one-piece over-suits, too, for good measure.

For this guide, we stuck with gear that doesn’t require electricity to keep you warm and specifically sought out waterproof – not water repellent or resistant – items. Keeping to this criteria, we still found a staggering 246 items, for both men and women,

Jan 20, 2015 - 10:37 AM - by

That BMW set a new record is not a surprise, considering we already knew BMW surpassed the record just 11 months into 2014. Sales didn’t let up in December either, with 7,032 units sold in the month, compared to 6,343 units in the same month of
