The Panhead Chopper ridden by Peter Fonda in Easy Rider just sold for US$1.35 million ($1.62 million including auction fees). That’s more than double the price of the previous most expensive motorcycle ever sold at auction (a 1910 Winchester). Well, there you have it; we can all go back to living our lives now…
The JayBrake Tranzbrake (starts at $2,199.00) is an integrated brake caliper system mounted directly to the transmission that eliminates the need for a rear brake caliper and rotor.

The JayBrake Tranzbrake is available in 4-piston in polished aluminum, chrome or black and is a hydraulic clutch only application. JayBrake hydraulic clutch controls are available for both hand and foot applications. Visit JBrake.com for specific applications and additional product information.
Remember when Harley-Davidson purchased fledging Italian motorcycle manufacturer MV Agusta? Yeah, no-one remembers. That’s because it was a very short-lived union. Truth is, the iconic and exclusive brand got dropped like a hot potato by the Motor Factory when the big financial crisis hit all of us. It’s unfortunate, but obviously, MV Augusta survived that pothole and went on to design and produce some rather exciting two-wheeled monsters. With Halloween just around the corner, MV’s latest machine is set to scare the crap out of many riders. The MV Agusta Brutale Dragster 800 RR looks like a Transformer bike. It’t not for everyone but we though we’d let you have a look at this widow maker in action.

Increasing Penalties for Right-of-Way Violations without Education Misses the Mark–Right-of-way (ROW) violations against motorcyclists have become an increasing problem over the years.
