2018 Yamaha YZ250F | First Impression

  • By cannonball

The Yamaha YZ250F has won the Dirt Rider 250F MX Shootout four years running since the latest-generation design was released in 2014. During the past four years, the YZ250F engine produced the broadest power in the class, and Yamaha’s decision to remain with a spring fork proved to be a good one as the bike has been widely praised for its excellent suspension in the front and rear. For 2018, Yamaha made a few appearance changes with new graphics and blue rims. Shortly after we took delivery of our bike, we hit LACR for a first ride to see how the YZ250F handled the sandy, jump-filled track.

Jay Leno gives a glimpse of his vast motorcycle collection

  • By cannonball

Jay Leno is as famous for his vintage cars as he is for his comedy, thanks to his long-running “Jay Leno’s Garage” TV show.

But the former late-night host is just as passionate about motorcycles as he is about cars, and just as knowledgeable. Leno has one of the most interesting collections of two-wheeled machines, and recently took us on a tour of his museum-like gallery.

Target: Hitting 200 mph with a 68-year-old Triumph engine

  • By cannonball

IT TAKES A SPECIAL KIND of crazy to get into land speed racing. You need the genius of an aerospace engineer, a stuntman’s disregard for personal safety, and a lawyer’s knack for twisting the rulebook. Plus a measure of what the Brits call ‘sheer bloody-mindedness.’

Alp Sungurtekin has those qualities by the bucket load. How else can you explain a man who has taken a 650cc Triumph pushrod motor and quintupled its output from 33 horsepower to more than 150?
