Video Vednesday: 6 reasons why we need dirt bikes

In a country like India, filled with potholes and mountains and lakes and forests and rivers, it’s weird that there’s not one single dirt bike on sale. Hero gave us the puny but still fun Impulse, then chickened out and took it away. Others have given us some nice bikes, none of which are street… Read More »

WSBK Laguna Seca race results: Rea is not human

Jonathan Rea recently signed for another 2 years with Kawasaki to race in the WSBK. I think that was a mistake. It’s like the topper of a class choosing to repeat a year, he’s too far ahead of everyone else in WSBK, it’s time he tested himself against the MotoGP competition. Of course that’s easier… Read More »

Video Vednesday: Another insane adventure by MAD TV

These old farts are living the life. A few days ago I’d shared a series of videos documenting the crazy adventure a bunch of Aussies did crossing the Simpson desert.

From Donald Trump actually fighting for US Presidency, to this guy actually getting elected as the President of Philippines, to Britain… Read More »

Biker Sketch #1: Candida Louis

When I was a kid, I used to be fairly good at art, made a lot of flowers and Gods and other cute stuff and people seemed to like it. In 10th class, our Biology teacher gave us an assignment during the summer vacation to draw a few animals. I took it a bit too seriously… Read More »

Video Vednesday: Some gnarly riding in the Australian outback

I watch a lot of Youtube videos, most of them are crashes. When they are not crashes, they are Family Guy, Bob’s Burgers, Sixty Symbols, and then some more crashes. I prefer to spend time on Youtube rather than Facebook. When you watch something on Youtube, the creator makes money, when you watch something on… Read More »

Audible book review: Zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance

The book sold 5 million copies worldwide. It was originally rejected by 121 publishers, more than any other bestselling book, according to the Guinness Book of Records. Oh my fucking gawd what’s wrong with this guy. You end up saying that quite a lot while reading this book, but only in the first half. By… Read More »

MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3 race results from Assen

What a beautiful day it was. In my mind, without a doubt, this was the best racing action I have ever seen in my life. Thanks to the weather, and the brilliant piece of asphalt that is Assen, all 3 classes gave us some extremely remarkable races, with even more shocking results. I don’t think… Read More »
