BikeHUD Adventure augments your motorcycle rides

Drivers have no lack of options when it comes to head-up displays (HUDs), but those who use a motorcycle to get around are less fortunate. Though we've seen some options for motorcyclists, not many are presently available on the market, and so any addition is a welcomed one. The BikeHUD Adventure is one of the newest models to surface, and as you'd expect it works in the same way as HUDs for cars, displaying things like speed and, in this case, gear so that users don't have to look down at the speedometer.

Husqvarna motorcycles: a taste of the future with retro inspiration

If you liked the recent futuristic Ronin motorcycle concept and the design direction its maker took, you will love Husqvarna's two most recent bikes.

Study says lane splitting is safer and faster for everyone

Study says lane splitting is safer and faster for everyone

A new study has been published that claims lane splitting is safer for motorcyclists and makes the commute faster for everyone. Lane splitting is when motorcyclists ride between two lanes on the highway in traffic. Riders always knew that splitting lanes was faster for them, but the study found it makes the commute faster for everyone. Lane splitting makes it safer for riders because being rear-ended is the most likely accident to happen in traffic and if the riders get rear-ended, serious harm or even death can occur.

Yamaha 01Gen dual sport 3-wheeler debuts

Three wheelers were common on the off-road scene in the 80s before the four-wheeler made its debut. Three-wheelers had a bad name as being unsafe and unstable thanks to the single wheel in the front.
