Review: The Bentley Continental GT Speed, Luxury Made Right

admin

“Context,” it’s been said, “is everything.” Similarly, heavily curated experiences make me hyper aware when critiquing a car. Case in point: my first taste of the Bentley Continental GT Speed, which came at a press launch in sun-doused Sicily, where the air smells like limoncello and fairy tale coastlines are lapped by the warm Mediterranean. Focus grasshopper, and don’t let the Amaro sweeten your view of the quarter-million-dollar grand tourer.

Fast forward to a rainy December in Los Angeles, where I’ve been slated to spend some extended follow-up time in the GT on my own home turf. During the quiet

MO Tested: TCX Infinity 3 GTX Boots Review

admin

The TCX Infinity 3 GTX Boots were constructed to give adventure tourers versatile boots to handle a wide variety of conditions. While the features set includes many of the items that make for a strong touring boot, the two standout features of the Infinity 3 boots are the Gore-Tex waterproofness and the dial fastening system; these place the Infinity 3 in the premium footwear category.

admin

We spent some time with the new-gen RX hybrid in the USA to see what it’s all about.

Lexus enjoys good brand equity in India, but oddly enough, the Japanese luxury firm has kept its India operations a very low key affair. That’s changing though with the brand now increasing its focus on the Indian market; this year it had its first Auto Expo outing, and since 2021, has added more dealers and service points to its network. So, the new RX should get the attention it deserves.

The RX, now in its 5th generation, swaps the older car’s

Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650 Review: Take It Easy!

admin

“Life’s a journey, not a destination” – that quote kept ringing in my head, as did the line from an Aerosmith number from younger days, as I gunned the Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650 northwest out of Jaisalmer. The black top stretched out for miles up ahead, and the sun rose from the horizon just behind me on the right. The early morning chill around the desert is just perfect for a motorcycle ride this time of the year, and the clean air a welcome change from the smog of Delhi.

admin

This winding road hugs the sides of colorful peaks rising from the sea at Calanques de Piana, Corsica.

The Sardinia & Corsica – Riders’ Heaven tour was my first guided motorcycle tour. It won’t be my last.

We toured the Mediterranean islands of Sardinia (an autonomous region of Italy) and Corsica (an autonomous region of France). Adriatic Moto Tours made it easy: Just show up with your gear and ride.

Alpinestars Tech-Air 3 Review [Motorcycle Airbag Vest]

admin

Not too long ago, airbag technology for motorcyclists seemed like safety gear pulled from the pages of science fiction. A few intrepid manufacturers have made that fantasy a reality using racetrack research and trickling it down to street riders. The street-focused Alpinestars Tech-Air 3 distills that hard-earned data and experience into a vest catering to those tackling the daily grind.As the newest member of the Tech-Air family, the Tech-Air 3 ($600) joins the ranks of the multi-purpose Tech-Air 5 ($750), racetrack-oriented Tech-Air 10 ($1000), and forthcoming Tech-Air Off-Road. However, the Italian brand’s entry-level stand-alone airbag goes a long way
