Electric Flat Track Motorcycle Racing Proves The Future Will Be Just Fine

Last weekend at Portland’s Veterans Memorial Colliseum something truly new happened. You could feel a change in the air as the old boy’s club of motorcycle racing embraced a new technology.

The competitive spirit of humans isn’t dulled by...

Harley Davidson Is Working On Automatic Emergency Braking Technology For Bikes

Luxury automobiles have featured radar-based adaptive cruise control with emergency braking for several years, and the technology has found its way down market, trickling down to workaday cars, trucks, and SUVs in recent model years.

Guy Suspected Of DUI Drives Home With Motorcycle Wedged In His Jeep's Bumper

It’s really not to surprising to find out that the driver who rear-ended a motorcycle and then drove all the way home with that motorcycle jammed into his Jeep’s bumper was charged with a DUI. Not realizing or even caring that you’re shoving a whole V-twin motorcycle in front of your car is really the sort of thing you need to be under some kind of influence to do.

The wreck happened yesterday...
