Mid-Ohio Vintage Days 2016

If you don’t know what’s going on in this photo then you fucked up and didn’t come to Mid-Ohio last year. Don’t make that mistake again this year. This is your heads up to get your time off work and make it out for this. If you don’t already have a pit bike, plan on […]

The War Years

Before there were a bunch of assholes on DT’s tearing up the woods of reading, there were a bunch of dudes in green tearing up the woods of North Carolina on WLA Harleys. The footage is great. The music sucks. Recommend watching on mute. Apologies to those who frequent RideApart for the dupe content.

The Country Mile Race

I unfortunately had not heard of this race until the week or so before it. I think we should plan on this for next year. There is about 15 of us on old dirt bikes now and this is only 3 hours from Philly. What do you guys think? Enter the Open Amateur or Open […]

Number 8 Wire Motorcycle Trip Photos

I hit up Colin of Number 8 Wire Motorcycles for a recap of his West Coast trip. Here’s what he had to say: Yo man, I’ve been flat out! Here are some pics. The trip was epic. South from Missoula are some amazing roads, through Stanley and Sun Valley (ID) then through Nevada to some […]

Cb550CamSwap-1

CB650 Cam in a CB550

This swap always interested me for the power bump but I never found any good comparison info about it so I was skeptical that it was possible without major modification. I successfully completed the swap and it was very straight forward but you will need to some additional parts to do it. Here’s all the […]

Old Toyota Truck Ads

While doing Yamahauler sticker research I fell into an internet hole of old toyota pickup advertisements. I love everything about the old Toyotas. I like that they were just called ‘pickup’ and were basic small trucks with great colors options and even better graphics. The new trucks just don’t have that same cool look as […]

It's been mad but both […]

Honda CB Starter Delete / Block Off

Here’s a solution for removing your starter if you have setup your cycle to be kick only like I did. Previously, I used to use a rubber freeze plug which is the standard internet forum recommendation. However, day one of riding to Lake Superior my freeze plug blew out and my bike hemorrhaged oil 30 […]

Mar Automotive

There are certain things you can do yourself and there are certain things you should leave to the experts with the real tools. I’ve lapped valves before. It’s cool to play around with doing that for fun, but really… let the experts make sure your head is legit. Mar automotive is an engine machine shop […]

Spark Plug Guide

I am currently working on tuning my 1976 CB550 for pods and a CB650 cam with the help of the jetting wizard Ed. We’ve been discussing which heat number to run. Out of curiosity, I did some reading up on spark plugs and learned more than I expected. 3 Important things according to NGK: 1. […]

Honda CR500 – 2 stroke

In case you don’t know… These things were pretty fast. Saw this shit on IG and was dying.  I’ll bet that power band hits like a Mac truck.

Northeast On Old Motorcycles

The good weather has had me thinking a lot about this years cycle trips. At some point, myself and few others are looking at taking a trip up through upstate New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, and possibly Maine. Anyone reading this have any good recommendations for camping spots, roads to take, swimming holes, sights worth […]

2016 Norton Show Photos

It was a great weekend for riding and camping. A bunch of us met up at C&S Saturday afternoon and headed North out of the city. We stopped for dinner at Dilly’s Corner and then setup camp about 20 miles north of New Hope in High Rocks State Park. River Road had a couple detours […]

Not polishing turds

I lost $50. Adam was looking through the website at stuff from back in 2010. He found the below picture and said “wow, yanns bike was really clean”. I said no fucking way, it’s some random persons bike that came out for a Thursday ride. Long story short, I was wrong and yes it was […]

Gathering of the Nortons V2

Too much different plans going on for this. This is what I’m doing if anyone wants to join… Ed and I are going to be camping at Deer Wood Campground in the Tohickon Valley Park. We’ve camped here before and it’s nice low key spot and I don’t expect it to be busy. It’s $20 […]

Tiny Yamaha’s

This past weekend was another great jalopy shred in the Reading woods. The 30+mph winds made the drive up sketchy in our tiny Toyotas but it was all worth it once we got to the woods. I severely lacked at taking any good photos but sometimes that’s a sign of how fun the trip was […]
