Buying a Used Motorcycle? Here’s What You Need to Look for

admin

Buying a used motorcycle can be perilous — a key reason you may want to consider purchasing a new motorcycle instead. But you can still get a great deal on a used bike if you’re willing to invest the time and effort.

For the used side of the equation, as with the new, I’ve recruited a friend named Marcin Wasicki, who not only owns and runs a Euro-centric car repair shop called Airport Automotive in Linthicum, Maryland but is also the biggest, most obsessive motorcycle nut I know, selling, buying, racing, and repairing more bikes than I will own or

I’ve ridden every electric motorcycle out there. Here’s what I know

admin

Electric motorcycles are my jam. If I’m on two wheels and it’s not a bicycle, then odds are I’m on an electric motorcycle. I don’t ride them because they’re clean or green, though those are nice side benefits – I ride them because they’re fun and enjoyable. They’re infinitely better than sitting in a car watching the world go by through glass. And the ownership experience is so much nicer than gas motorcycles due to their greatly reduced maintenance, lower cost of ownership, lack of vibrating cacophony, and a laundry list of other reasons.

My love of these awesome e-motos

Last month, Porsche used the Goodwood Festival of Speed in the UK to formally debut its newest model. It’s not another 911, nor a new SUV; it’s a hybrid sports prototype designed to win on the track here in the US and at Le Mans. You can tell the car has big shoes to fill just by looking at its name—Porsche is calling the new racing car the 963 because it’s the spiritual successor to the legendary 962

Here’s What A 2004 Pontiac GTO Costs Today

admin

It’s hard not to love American muscle cars of the ’60s and their rumbling V8s; however, the entire era might not have been a reality if it wasn’t for the creation of the Pontiac GTO in 1964. The beloved Ford Mustang and Dodge Charger were built to compete with this beast. To call the GTO anything less than one of the most influential cars of all time would be an understatement.

The production of the Pontiac GTO was halted by 1974 following the global oil crisis. After almost 30 years of absence, the fifth generation GTO was introduced in 2003

Here’s Why The Cayman Is Called The Poor Man’s Porsche

admin

Besides being known for its engineering and automotive heritage, Porsche is also associated with high prices. Historically, there have been several models in the Porsche lineup that are dubbed the “Poor Man’s Porsche” by brand purists because they are considered entry-level models to the brand.

We can talk about the 944, produced between 1982 and 1991, or more recently the Boxster, which in its first-generation reached distributors in 1996 and served as the basis for its “brother”, the Cayman. The Cayman is a coupe derived from the third-generation Boxster roadster and was introduced by Porsche in 2006.

The Cayman is
