Yeti Coolers Releases Lost and Found: Baja

Yeti Coolers Releases Lost and Found: Baja

Life is too short. It’s an underlying theme that pops up in almost all of acclaimed action-sports filmmaker Dana Brown’s work, and something that shines through like a laser beam in just a little over 8 minutes in his latest project, Lost and Found: Baja, a short subject film produced by high-end cooler manufacturer Yeti Coolers. In other words, if you are a motorcycle rider, Baja should be on your bucket list. Lost and Found:…

Duke’s Den: Risk/Reward

Duke’s Den: Risk/Reward

News flash: Motorcycling can be dangerous. Illustrating this fact are the left hands of myself and international roadracer, Jeremy McWilliams, seen in the above picture, a photo I imagine many would think is more than a touch morbid. The missing digits are the result of crashing motorcycles while racing. And we’re not extraordinarily disfigured in the world of motorcyclists. Three-time World Superbike champ Troy Bayliss lost his right pinkie finger at the second knuckle after a…

What Do We Need on Craigslist Today?

What Do We Need on Craigslist Today?

How about a tasty Kawasaki ZX-7R? Kawasaki’s slightly delayed response to the GSX-R was the ZX-7, which arrived in the USA in 1991, followed shortly after by the rarer and cooler ZX-7R homologation special. One of the first (maybe THE first) bike with a pressurized airbox, we had a lot of fun cracking wise about its vacuum cleaner intake hoses. Its stiff rear shock was no joke, though, and neither was the rest of the…

Church Of MO First Ride: 2002 Kawasaki ZX-12R

When the hyperbike wars were taking off at the start of the new millennium, Kawasaki was caught with its pants down, so to speak, as Suzuki had lit the field on fire with its Hayabusa. Team Green’s response? No, not the ZX-14R we know today, but the ZX-12R. A fast bike by most measures, when placed against the ‘Busa it simply couldn’t keep up. For this week’s Church feature we have our first ride review of…

Racing A Honda CRF150R Is Minibike Racing The Way It Should Be

If you’ve been following MO for a while then you might remember the tale of woe that was our experience racing a Honda Grom for 24 hours, wherein we obtained a Grom, ordered up a ton of parts for it (the monetary sum totalling more than the bike’s original cost), slapped them all on, and went straight to the racetrack the next day to race with our friends at the United Mini Racing Association (UMRA)…
