A motorcyclist from Colorado was out and about breaking in a new set of tires when he found himself in a steadily escalating road rage incident.

The Fort Worth Police Department is investigating video of an officer allegedly spraying pepper spray into traffic at a pack of passing motorcyclists.
Motorcyclists face numerous dangers when they gear up for a ride, everything from wandering wildlife to distracted drivers. A rider in Nevada encountered something even more dangerous last week when a driver pulled a pistol on him during a traffic encounter. The motorcyclist, who according to Fox News wished to remain anonymous, posted a video of the altercation to YouTube on Saturday, January 30. The footage, shot with a helmet-mounted GoPro, shows a group of dirt bikes and dual sports traveli
Sportbikes have officially been banned from running in the Pikes Peak International Hill climb after two riders have been killed over the last two years.
Fatalities among motorcyclists are projected to fall to 4,584 once all of the 2014 numbers are tallied, marking the second consecutive year deaths have decreased.
Honda has been selling motorcycles in Japan since 1949. And it's been selling bikes to US customers since John Travolta had a paper route. Combine all those years, huge markets and great products, and apparently the number you come up with is 300,000,000. Wowza.
Motorcyclists, whether it be road riders or dirt bikers, are a unique sort. Often, the passion that starts with the parents is passed down to the children, becoming a generational hobby that connects parents, kids and in many cases, grandparents.
Motorbike riders looking for something with a little Latin flair have had plenty of choices on their hands, but most of them come from Italy: marques like Ducati, Aprilia and Moto Guzzi. But what if you wanted something more Spanish than Italian? That's where Bultaco comes in. Or came in, we should say, because the Barcelona-based motorcycle manufacturer founded in 1958 closed in 1983, but now it's staging a comeback.
If you're a fan of four-wheeled motorsports, there's no shortage of Meccas to visit - Indianapolis, Monaco, Daytona, Le Mans and the Nürburgring are all high on our list. For two-wheeled racing enthusiasts, though, the bucket list is likely a bit shorter, and could even be summed up by one event - the Isle of Man TT.
Bikes, whether powered by gas or pedals, remain a complicated issue on our country's roadways. For many motorists, two-wheelers can be a nuisance, whether it be a cyclist holding up traffic on a two-lane road or a motorcyclist weaving between cars, while two-wheeled enthusiasts believe (some would say correctly) that they have as much reason and right to be on the road as automobiles.
Consumer Reports has released its first ever study of motorcycle reliability, and students of its ratings on cars might notice a suspicious similarity - Japanese brands require fewer repairs than the leading American or German brands.
Sunday's incident between a black Land Rover Range Rover Sport and a fleet of motorcycles in New York City has been a topic of conversation across the internet, particularly here at Autoblog, where you, our readers, have racked up over 175,000 views and over 600 comments - some of which were quite cross - as of this writing. When the story first surfaced, conflicting reports from outlets as varied as the Daily Mail and Fox News made it difficult to determine what was what. Now, though, there's b
Video has emerged of an altercation between the driver of a Land Rover Range Rover Sport and a large group of motorcyclists. The incident, which occurred yesterday afternoon in New York City, looks to have been started when the Land Rover driver bumped one of the motorcyclists (it's difficult to tell from the video whose fault this was). The incident momentarily brought traffic to a standstill, but escalated anew when the SUV driver ran down a number of riders while attempting to leave the scene
Zero Motorcycles is recalling 268 of its electric motorcycles due a faulty mounting bolt on the front brake caliper, which is prone to corrosion. Were the bolts to fail or fracture, the caliper could come loose and that could stop the front wheels. This, of course, would be very bad news at anything more than a few miles per hour.
