MINNEAPOLIS – February 10, 2021: In 1921 Indian Motorcycle unveiled the iconic Indian Chief, one of the most historic and influential motorcycles of all time. Now, in celebration of 100 years, America’s
First Motorcycle Company is unleashing three new, totally reimagined Indian Chief models for its 2022 lineup. Combining iconic, American V-twin style with modern performance and technology, Indian Motorcycle
designed the new Chief with a simplistic and mechanical aesthetic that pays homage to the glory days of American motorcycling.

All based on a timeless, simplistic steel-tube frame and powered by Indian Motorcycle’s powerful Thunderstroke motor, the new Indian Chief, Indian Chief Bobber and Indian Super Chief offer three unique
takes on the classic American V-twin, each appealing to a slightly different rider.

Vanilla Ice and Mike Love of the Beach Boys Performed at Maskless Mar-a-Lago New Year’s Eve Party

Remember when Smash Mouth and some other bands so terrible that Trapt made it on to the promotional materials performed at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota back in August? It caused approximately 260,000 cases of COVID-19 according to one study, which means it probably affected more lives than anything any of the artists had done since appearing on the Shrek soundtrack.

Not to be outdone, Florida hosted its own super-spreader event full of awful acts last night. Headlined by Vanilla Ice (no, really), the Trump campaign event saw approximately 500 guests attend a mask-optional night at the soon-to-be-former president’s Mar-a-Lago resort. In addition to the ’90s fossil, Mike Love continued his trend of pretending to represent the Beach Boys in support of Trump, despite Brian Wilson and Al Jardine condemning him for using the band’s name at a

Few motorcycle manufacturers have been as successful at sensing what consumers want as well as Honda has. In 1958, Honda caught lightning in a bottle by selling the Super Cub to non-riders and bicycle riders. In a subsequent attempt to gain more riders, Honda attempted to bring new riders to the two-wheel lifestyle.

How? A popular belief is that Honda’s automotive design team dreamed up a motorcycle to attract car drivers to motorcycling. But the reality is a bit different.

This is the Honda Pacific Coast 800. Launched in 1989, this futuristic-looking bike had some ideas that would still be good today, over 30 years later.

One of the most prominent features of the PC800’s design is the completely enclosed engine. Not even the racetrack-replica sportbikes hide their engines as totally as the PC800 does.
