WTF! – Camouflage

WTF! – Camouflage

With hunting season well underway in some areas, we think someone took the idea of camouflage and motorcycles a bit too far. This one might do more to scare away the prey than hide the hunter. It definitely wouldn’t fool unsuspecting cagers…or East...
Thanksgiving Dinner

Thanksgiving Dinner

The Lowdown We thought it would be downright idiotic to suggest a place to eat the day before Thanksgiving. So what better place to eat said food orgy other than at home. We’re not sure the Pilgrims pigged out like pandas on freshly snagged bamboo, but somehow...
Heated Gloves

Heated Gloves

This is one of those items that you wish you had, but don’t want to admit it. Cold weather? Put on more layers! But damned if we don’t once in awhile wish we at least had heated gloves. And we’re still wishing! But they’ll be on our holiday...
Your Windshield

Your Windshield

For those of us who can still get out and ride…and those of you who still do no matter how freakin’ cold, rainy, snowy or windy it might be…your windshield is a wonderful thing. So protecting it and keeping it free of scratches is necessary...
Savannah River Scenery

Savannah River Scenery

THE BRIEF We’re always on the lookout for new routes and our friends down south just sent us a bunch courtesy of Motorcycleroads.com  Having been to Savannah, GA once we were particularly drawn to this route that heads out of Savannah on the 21 and eventually...
Your Bike Here…

Your Bike Here…

We know you’ve got ’em. Either you own a favorite now. You’ve seen one and added it to your wish list. Or you had one and you wish you had it back. Send us a picture of your favorite bike, and if we post it in an issue of Asphalt & Dirt before...
In the “Buff”

In the “Buff”

Wouldn’t it be great to have something that served as a do rag, a bandana and a face mask? Let us introduce you to Buff. We bought a few Buff Originals a few years ago. And while there are at least a dozen different ways to wear them, we prefer the threesome...
WTF – Batman!

WTF – Batman!

We wonder what Triumph was thinking with this concept bike. (Look closely and you’ll see the Triumph name on the side.) Maybe the next Batman movie? Either way, this might be good in heavy traffic, or sustaining a serious “bump” from a cager, but...
WTF! Stackers

WTF! Stackers

We think this is what happens when you get a bunch of bikers with no depth perception riding too close! Or takes care of riding and drinking – designated rider goes up front. The rest just hang on.
Black Lightning Motorcycle Cafe

Black Lightning Motorcycle Cafe

THE LOWDOWN  Motorcycle themed restaurants typically run into two categories – 1) “Oh, look, there are pictures of motorcycles.” or 2) “The owner looks like they actually rode the damn things more than once!” Black Lightning Motorcycle...
Eat. Sleep. Ride.

Eat. Sleep. Ride.

Before you get the idea this is the name of some new chic-based self-help book, think again. For many of us who ride, there really are only three things we’d rather do – well, maybe four, but you’ll have to find the fourth elsewhere. EatSleepRIDE is...
Favorite Bike – 2014 KTM 1190 Adventure

Favorite Bike – 2014 KTM 1190 Adventure

The battle for the growing adventure market continues to get more aggressive as one manufacturer after another either adds an adventure bike to their lineup or beefs up an older model to be more competitive. KTM was one of the original manufacturers of adventure bikes...
Winter Jacket

Winter Jacket

While it’s still technically fall across the Northern Hemisphere, it’s starting to feel more like winter depending how far north of certain latitudes you might find yourself. Even out here in California, we find ourselves riding in chillier weather, but by...
Rusty Tank and a Workout

Rusty Tank and a Workout

As the temperature heads south, this is the time when bikers with projects head to the garage. Either to pick up on a left off project or avoid that awful time of the month all women go through – a trip to the hair salon followed by an expectation that you...
US 50 – America’s Loneliest Highway

US 50 – America’s Loneliest Highway

THE BRIEF We don’t know if anyone once said it, but everyone who rides knows that there’s a road for every rider and a rider for every road. For anyone who likes to ride balls to the wall, flat out fast as an open throttle will take you, US 50 from just...
WTF! Michelin

WTF! Michelin

We’re all about riding with the proper gear, but this is freakin’ ridiculous! And that bike…probably not easy to drag an elbow or scrape a peg. But it probably goes easy in a straight line. BTW – where is the peg!?
