All New Yamaha Super Tenere 1200


Full specs and technical information have just surfaced for Yamaha’s 2010 XT1200Z Super Tenere – and it’s immediately clear that BMW’s R1200GS now has a serious competitor in the big-bore adventure sports category. Apart from its adventure credentials – spoked rims, sit-down/stand-up riding ergonomics and the like, it’s also packing some very interesting technology – including a 3-stage traction control module and a super-smart braking system that looks like it might put Honda’s Combined ABS system to shame. Extensive detail images. Continue reading →

EasyRiders Dave Mann – Biker Art


Dave Mann’s dad was a lifelong illustrator and active member of the Society of Scribes in London. The younger Mann was born in Kansas City, Missouri.  In 1957 he first drew pencil sketches of hot rods while feigning attention in high school. His crude sketches opened the door for Dave’s first job, pinstriping cars for Doug Thompson and Ray Hetrick’s custom car shop in Kansas City.  The wild allure of the West Coast drew Dave and buddy Al Burnett to Santa Monica, California.

Shinya Kimura – Japanese Art of building Bikes

Shinya Kimura, formerly known as the founder of “ZERO” or the so-called “ZERO Style” motorcycles, has launched his own workshop called “chabott engineering” in the city of Azusa, California in 2006

In his 25 year career in the motorcycle world, Kimura started his own small repair shop named Chabo in 1992, a year before he started ZERO in Japan. Chabo means “bantam rooster” in Japanese and, to Kimura, it means “;back to basics”.

With the rebirth of Chabott engineering (with the fancy double t’s),Kimura will continue his exploration of metal and rubber…or whatever…in new and different ways — not merely building custom motorcycles– but creating functional art by infusing his philosophy and aesthetic values into his sculpturally unique and rolling designs.
