Daytona Bike Week, that annual orgy of motorcycle excess, is upon us. So, we thought we’d take this opportunity to point out some of the must-see events that will be taking place over the next week or so. Many of these events are what keep bikers returning to Daytona Beach year after year, but sadly, not all of our favorites will be taking place in 2014. Case in point, the insanely fun motorcycle demolition derby at the New Smyrna Speedway is not on the calendar this year. We can always hope for 2015.
Finally, though most of the Bike Week shenanigans are best viewed through a pair of beer goggles, we highly recommend that you … More
Dragrace between Hildo, the owner & builder, of a 25 year old Harley Ratbike Chopper and the owner of a 170hp+ Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade. This man has considerable experience racing circuits but this ain’t no circuit!

In 2007, Gabe Ets-Hokin got a chance to throw a leg over not one, but two(!) Boss Hoss’. Read on to see what he thought of them. And click the link above to view the entire photo gallery.

At last year’s Yamaha V-Star 1300 intro, I could hardly believe my ears when Yamaha’s product planners described a 1300cc bike as a “middleweight”. All four Japanese manufacturers have 1800cc — or larger — cruisers on the market, and Triumph has no trouble selling their gargantuan 2.3-liter Rocket III. Where will it end?
