Fashion-house take on Monster actually better looking in the flesh.
When I first heard about the Ducati/Diesel collaboration, I was expecting a laughable Grayson Perry-style bike - one that no biker would ever want to buy.
When I saw this Diesel Monster in the press release, I thought it was a fairly average, forgettable effort.
Seeing it in the flesh; I changed my ... Continue reading
...do riders of 'big' bikes come any shorter?
In the distance was a GSX-R600 riding itself. As I got closer, I realised it was actually being ridden by a small person. A very small person. A very very small person.
I pulled up next to them at the lights and said "How tall are you?!" to which the lady riding ... Continue reading
Non-smoker seeks attention
Motorcycle manufacturers love acronyms, especially Suzuki. But for me Honda's CBR will now just stand for one thing. Croatian Burns Rubber.
US biker's mono captured by earth-mapping search giant
What do you do when you see the Google StreetView car in your neighbourhood? You fire up your motorcycle and pop a wheelie past it. At least, that's what one guy did in Lemoyne Drive, Louisiana.
Pictured on a Suzuki DRZ-400, you can see the stunt here.
As an aside: the guys ... Continue reading

French custom madness from Blitz Motorcycles
WE HAVE featured Blitz Motorcycles before on Visordown, you may recognise them as the protagonists of the very cool video 'Long Live The Kings' we featured a few days ago. They make one-of-a-kind custom bikes, with an obvious focus on the old school cafe racer.
Pictured above is their extremely rugged 'Great ... Continue reading
Dutch turbine madness
Emile van Essen is from North Holland and, in a stroke of brilliance/lunacy, has replaced the original two-stroke three-cylinder of a 1976 Suzuki GT550 with a turbine. Sadly it does take a bit of time to get going, although any displeasure you might feel as a result would no doubt be ... Continue reading
Optimistic load for tiny Kia
Visordown reader David Smith sent us in these pictures he'd taken over the weekend.
Question is: has the scooter been crashed, broken down or has it been bought and it's being transported home?
Somehow I don't think we'll ever find out.
This short film features a Honda and a pair of flat-twin Beemers customised by Paris-based Blitz Motorcycles. It was shot exclusively on super 16mm film and looks stunning. But more importantly, loads of fun.
A small group of friends and a few days away on the bikes. What's not to like? It ... Continue reading
