GIM JUNKIE. Officine Rossopuro Get Addicted to a Moto Guzzi Bellagio

Posted on December 14, 2017 by Andrew in Scrambler, Tracker. 33 comments

I’ll say it again. Moto Guzzis are like heroin. You don’t dabble in it, you don’t do a bit on the side. If you’re into Guzzis you live and breathe for them. And it turns out this addiction cripples shops as well as owners, as shown by Italy’s Officine Rossopuro…

DEF METAL. Kiddo’s Slick & Silver T120 Triumph Bonneville

Posted on November 27, 2017 by Andrew in Classic, Tracker. 14 comments

There’s some beautifully elemental things at the core of motorcycling. One is fire; I’m all for electric bikes, but you have to admit that internal combustion and motorcycles go together like guitars and rock. They are inseparable. The same goes for metal. If a super quick, super light plastic bike…

MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE. A Fully Transformed Ducati Tracker From Benjie’s

Posted on November 16, 2017 by Andrew in Tracker. 15 comments

We can read your mind. You’re trying to guess which donor Ducati Benjie’s Cafe Racers used to build this, their latest custom bike home run. A Monster perhaps? What about a ST4S? Or maybe a Scrambler? They’re pretty good guesses, but you’d be wrong on all counts…

SNAKES AND LATTICE. The ‘Cobra’ Honda XR250 from Argentina’s Lucky Customs

Posted on November 13, 2017 by Andrew in Other, Tracker. 27 comments

‘Chuckable’. It’s what we call bikes in England and Down Under that are super easy to throw around on the road. You might call them lithe, lightweight or manoeuvrable. It’s what you get when you start with something that’s already pretty minimal and push it even further…

STRATOSPHERIC. A Rally-Inspired Ducati Monster From Vida Bandida.

Posted on October 31, 2017 by Andrew in Other, Racer, Scrambler, Tracker. 14 comments

Yesterday we had an 80s endurance cafe racer and today it’s rally cars that are setting the scene. But not just any rally car; it’s arguably the rally car. The Lancia Stratos HF with its Ferrari V6. Argentina’s Vida Bandida are, like many of their country folk, huge rally fans. And to pay tribute to the Lancia and rally’s Group B golden age of the 70s and 80s, they’ve built an perfectly Italian tribute in the form of this dirt-eating Ducati Monster.

BREAKING RAD. BCKustom’s ‘Bone Destroyer’ Honda XL 600R Tracker

Posted on October 23, 2017 by Andrew in Racer, Tracker. 18 comments

I tried flat tracking a few months ago. I blitzed the first-timer’s field until someone pointed out that I was riding a bike with a front brake and using it. So I switched to the rear brake, went for broke on the last lap and promptly ate more dirt than a stoned earthworm with poor self-control. The bike was cactus and my left knee has only just recovered. The lesson was simple; learning to go fast on dirt can be a painful exercise. Which is probably why France’s BCKustoms has called this, their gorgeous new ‘87 Honda XLR 600 flat tracker, the ‘Bone Destroyer’.

Posted on October 17, 2017 by Andrew in Racer, Tracker. 54 comments

As always at this time of year, Harley have just wheeled out their 2018 models to the world’s eager press. Sure they look cool but all we can see is the big, fat hole where there isn’t a street tracker. C’mon Milwaukee! Just slap a light and some indicators on the XG750R and be done with it. No? Well, that’s cool because Mule Motorcycles’ Richard Pollock, a.k.a. California’s king of trackers, has just delivered us a Harley Sportster XL1200 street tracker that should keep all but the most unhinged of HD tracker fans happy for a millennia or three.
