Radical Ducati :: RAD02 Pursang Monster

Based on Multistrada 1100 engine and Monster S2R single-sided swing arm, this bike is ready to party.  They created a custom-built aluminum tank, as well as the carbon fiber tail.

Radical Ducati has also fitted K&N air filters, EVR slipper clutch, and a custom 2-into-1 exhaust system, consisting of WolfMan collectors and a very loud Spark megaphone.

Reader's Rides :: Gold "Triumph of Bacchus and Ariadne"

Check out this custom 2011 Triumph Thruxton. Owner Brian purchased his Thruxton in August 2010 and quickly started thinking how he could make the bike look unique. Unsatisfied with the original paint he began to think of his options. Being a big art history fan he chose the painting "Triumph of Bacchus and Ariadne" by Annibale Carracci (1602). After mocking it up in Photoshop he brought his concept to Fred Sicolli at Killer Kreations in Philadelphia. The rest speaks for itself..

Specs include:
D&D TT pipes
Custom paint by Killer Kreations
Ohlins rear shocks
Woodcraft 1" clip-ons
Airbox delete
Power Commander

Bullitt Build :: Yamaha XS750

Like the ladies here in Orange County - California, that is - this XS needs a tummy tuck and a face lift just to fit in on these trendy streets.  This shaft driven 1977 Yamaha XS 750 has been choking down the twinkies and is going vegan...stat!   No more double mocha frappuccinos from the local Starbies either.
We're teaming up with an up and coming local builder Jeremy Moltrup and will be collaborating on this entire build.  The bike's getting completely stripped down, detabbed, tail looped and shortened.  Modern USD forks from a ZX-10R with some meaty tires are replacing the dinky existing front end.  She'll be getting a custom seat and other tasty bits.  By the time we're done with her, she'll be a lean, mean cafe racing machine.  Keep one eye on The Bullitt to watch her go from zero to hero!

Icon's Motorcycle vs. Car Drift Battle 2

The sequel to the Icon original video: Motorcycle vs. Car Drift Battle - Nick 'Apex' Brocha is back and this time he brought his Empire teammate, Ernie 'Edub' Vigil. The two are mounted on a pair of crackling Triumph Speed Triples built for the sole purpose of going sideways.
Over the last year their quest to find the ultimate drifting playground has led them to the rolling hills of High Plains County. Low traffic, perfect asphalt and endless twisties have kept them busy resurfacing roads with their rear tires for weeks. The only problem is the local authorities have had enough. Enter Police Officer Dan Brockett, the only man with the muscle to keep these two in sight. His 550 horsepower Ford Mustang Cobra was built for speed and he's got a license to use it...
