History of Military Motorcycles

Most of us are familiar with tanks, Hum-vees, APCs, and other common vehicles used in the military. Big, heavily-armored, and slow, the typical vehicle used in combat operations prioritizes protective armor and firepower over speed and agility. It makes sense; when bullets and explosive frag are flying every direction, the sound of rounds bouncing off a few inches of steel is pretty reassuring... Read More


Special Forces Motorcycles

With all the talk about post-apocalypse survival strategies going around (don't lie, you know you do it too), and we've been having some interesting discussions around the office about what kind of bike we'd want to be riding when the world ends.

Motorcycle Throwback - The 1903 Harley-Davidson

Harley-Davidson is not only one of the most popular motorcycle manufacturers; they're also one of the oldest.

Cool Motorcycles: Survival Bikes

In the past few years apocalypse theories and predictions have been aplenty. I'll even admit to having attended an "End of the World" party on December 21, 2012, the day that people swore the world was going to end because of the Mayan calendar. But that day came and went and the only difference in December 22 was more hangovers and some really disappointed people sitting in grocery stocked basements... Read More
