Inspired by the automotive industry and the economic crisis, Starved Rock Harley-Davidson/Buell in Illinois is the first dealership to offer a return program for motorcycles. Any rider buying a Harley-Davidson motorcycle through the respective dealership will benefit of the program covered by Walkaway USA. The first 12 months are free and followed by a additional coverage possibility which will allow the rider to drop the load if found in the impossibility of continuing the payment due to changes in his/her financial or life situations.

We work hard to ensure every Victory Motorcycle is built to our highest standards. The new extended warranty is our way to share the confidence we have in our products."

BlueShift Motorcycles is a new American motorcycle company which, unlike Harley-Davidson, Indian and Victory, are set to create electric motorcycles for the generations to come. American motorcycle manufacturers have always concentrated on providing loads of torque and BlueShift stays true to that fact and make sure that their future electric power cruiser will develop 200 ft lbs at any rpm.

The project will be formally introduced to the audience in April so you’ll remember these computer images very soon.

Back in the early days of motorcycling, manufacturers didn’t just do a promotional video of the final product as it was being ridden down the highway as convincing as that might have been for the rebel riders of the time. Instead, they would have taken the viewer (and possibly future customer) through the entire building process so that they knew what they’re machines were made of.

This is an Indian Chief promotional video from their factory in Springfield, Massachusetts. At that time, there were no automatic assembly lines that would take care of at least part of the building process so it was all done by dedicated Indian workers.

It’s sometimes enough to bring up the words “power” and “cruiser” so that other ones such as “Star” and “Warrior” would naturally emerge. That’s right; this motorcycle has become not only a Star emblem, but a benchmark for the industry. The interesting part about it is that it climbed all the way up to the top of the wave in the collective’s mental and keeps on riding there.

Based on the idea that brute force should be instantly delivered to the massive rear wheel of a stripped down cruising-type motorcycle, performance cruisers have claimed their fair market share and the Star Warrior has had a lot to do with it. Let’s see what it’s up to in 2009.

Being a loving and caring husband means more than just keeping the vow you’ve made in church on your wedding day. It involves the power to adapt your care and concern towards your life partner’s well being in different and sometimes spontaneous situations. So if you’re a motorcyclist and an ideal husband, it is very likely that you’re already using what is called the Babe Cage.

How was that saying?... “Prepare for the worst, expect for the best!” I believe it suits perfectly to this precise situation.

The Babe Cage (what kind of name is that, anyway?) is securely built around a cruiser’s bodywork so together with your passenger’s life, it also protects your motorcycle. The passenger gets an extra large backrest and even headrest while being safely belted to the cage (I guess there’s no point in having a safety cage if you’re going to fly tens of feet away from the bike in case of an accident). There is also a set of extra lights mounted around the cage so that traffic participants would be aware that you’re pretty much working with overdue gauge out there.

In what concerns the wife, how paranoia does she needs to be in order to let herself be carried like she’s explosive material or something?

Did you ever happen to buy a motorcycle and feel that there’s something missing in what concerns your new acquisition? Something such as a….third wheel for example. It seems that this motorcycle enthusiast did and with incredible results. This is the Harley-Davidson V-Rod Trike, definitely a unique machine which satisfies the riding demands of those who simply can’t stick to the standard two-wheeled version.

Remember the Harley-Davidson Sportster dressed up for the wild west? If not, this picture will surely remind you of it. Presenting to you the Motorcycle Mustang!

Featuring a massive V-twin engine developing precisely one horsepower, this beast only needs a flame paintjob, foamy rider and passenger seat, leather saddlebags as well as taillights and a fancy number plate just so that the town’s serif would allow you to cruise peacefully.

Probably Star’s most appropriate motto would be “A Star for everybody” as they offer different, but close sized engines to power a variety of models that are meant to suit all possible riding demands. Take the V Star 1100 lineup for instance. This fills in the gap between the V Star 1300 and V Star 950 with three similar and yet so different models, the Classic, the Silverado and the Custom. So which one suits you best?
