Motorcycles & Bicycles

We love bikes and motorcycles – do you know why? They do more with less. Bikes and motorcycles have only two wheels, and yet they have all the speed and grace of their four-wheeled brothers in a smaller package. If it’s fast and runs on two wheels, you’ll probably read about it here.

Bygen Hank Direct Bike – No More Chains

Hank Direct Drive

We’ve written about all types of bicycles with different features but the Bygen Hank Direct Bike is probably the most unique bicycle we’ve featured to date. What makes the Bygen Hank Direct Bike unique is that it skips using a chain or belt drive and instead uses a direct-drive system. Your turning pedal is now […]

I’ve been cycling a lot these last few months. It’s good exercise, it’s inexpensive, and I’ve really come to enjoy it… for the most part. I live in a bike city. We’ve got dedicated bike lanes all over the place, and they’re a fast way to get around. That is, until they’re blocked up by […]

Looks like Harley-Davidson has finally left the 1930’s behind and joined us in the 21st century.
