The New Aprilia RSV4 ad on YouTube

This is the 3rd and supposedly last of the Aprilia spoof ads. I liked the table cloth ad better, but this one is entertaining as well…  Read More →

New Bike- Kawasaki ZZR600

I picked up a Kawasaki ZZR600 at the auction last Friday and was reminded of what a great bike it is for the money. The current ZZR is the old ZX6R that was retired when the ZX636 and new ZX6R came out a few years back. Of course there are better 600cc sportbikes out there, but, for a balanced, comfortable, roomy 600 that still handles well and has excellent power, I don’t think you can find a better bike for the money. ZZR’s are almost... [Read More...]

Women and Motorcycling

Good video clip from NBC about women and motorcycling. It is cool to see women on all types of bikes these days. They do a good job of describing the “ride”- one said “you are just in the moment” and another said it is a natural way to de-stress. I’ve been bike-less for the past few weeks since my last bike was sold but I’m heading to the auction on Friday! Visit for breaking news, world news, and news... [Read More...]

The New Aprilia RSV4 ad

This is the latest RSV4 ad from Aprilia PR. I personally like the race scenes at the end the best but the ads are very creative. BTW, it is worth noting that Max Biaggi  just earned his ninth victory in the 2010 SBK Championship.  With prior dual victories in Salt Lake City, Monza and Portimao, he is leading in SBK points.  Read More →

New Ducati Power Cruiser?

New Ducati Cruiser Sketch I saw this over at Autoblog today, but the rumors of a Ducati Power Cruiser have been around for a while. Let’s face it, that is the money market right now. Older guys who have money are not generally going to buy a Sportbike and the smaller boutique manufacturers like Triumph and BMW are the only ones selling much right now. So, it really makes sense for Ducati to go after their share of the pie and with a well proven... [Read More...]

Brand new 1979 Yamaha RD400F

1979 Yamaha RD400F I’m sure there are a lot of other “warehouse finds” out there, but lets face it, this is cool- a new, in the crate, 1979 RD400. It’s not worth millions like some cars would be, but it is still a super rare collectors item. I just wish they would put it together and display it. I don’t think it is worth any more by leaving it in the crate and they would probably generate some showroom traffic if it was... [Read More...]
