Old motorcycles are cool. They look cool. They sound cool. They are the epitome of the word itself. That being said, they can also be a massive annoyance. With old parts and antiquated technology, riding a vintage motorcycle is harder, less comfortable, and often includes far more repairs than a modern bike. On this episode of HS/LS, the guys discu…

To each their own! For every motorcycle made, there is a reason not to like it. There are also plenty of reasons to be a fan. In this episode Lemmy, Spurgeon, and Joe talk about the reasons people tend to give for what makes a "bad" motorcycle, and why, in the end, it all comes down to matching expectations and style between rider and machine. We a…
 
Does it matter where your motorcycle, or its parts, are assembled? For some riders, it does in a big way. But there are also plenty who could not care less, just so long as the motorcycle makes them smile.

WELCOME BACK! In this episode we kick of the second season of RevZilla's Highside/Lowside with one of our favorite topics around the office and ask the question of, "what makes a motorcyclist?" Do you have to ride a motorcycle to be considered one? Maybe. But then again, maybe not. Do scooters count? What about trikes? Can you be a motorcyclist if …
 
Sales of motorcycles in America have been struggling for years. Is it due to a more safety-focused citizenry? Are motorcycles not as "cool" as they once were? On top of it all, is the premise flawed from the beginning; are motorcycle sales not really down as much as we think? All of that and more as the guys discuss the current state of the industr…
 
When it comes to electric motorcycles the conversation has always been, "will they be good enough?" For generations petrol has been king of the fuel stack. Entire industries have been built around its consumption, and the engines, parts, and repairs that power our machines in the direction of the future. However, that future is increasingly looking…
 
The amount of motorcycle styles available to riders is exploding. But is that a good thing? Are riders better off because of the options available to them, or are we regressing in our ability to craft our own motorcycles into the customized machines we adore? It's something that the HS/LS guys have thought a lot about, and in this episode they delv…
 
ATGATT. If you spend time in riding circles, it's an acronym that is bound to come up in conversation. It is also likely to ignite strong feelings on either side. All The Gear - All The Time is a great way to go about ensuring you have done your part to be as safe as possible on a motorcycle, however, is it right for everyone? And more importantly,…
 
Power and speed, convenience and safety; it's all been amplified by technological improvements to motorcycles through the years. If you ask ten different riders where they think the line is, you'll likely get twelve different answers. But one thing is for certain, technological advancements aren't going in the opposite direction anytime soon. In th…
 
Some think of it as characteristics that are inherent from the moment of manufacture. Others envision it as something more. Motorcycles are machines. They are made of basically the same stuff as your kitchen toaster. But can machines have soul? That's the question on the HS/LS team's mind this week as they discuss the differences between that which…
 
Is it a lack of free time? Maybe it's cost and access. What about safety? Possibly land use? Perhaps it's video games. More than likely, it's a bit of it all.

Regardless of how you feel about cruisers (and some folks feel strongly on either side), they are one of the most prolific styles of bike on the road. They're kind of like the superhero movies of the motorcycle world; you're either an ardent fan, or you fail to see what all the hype is about. Either way, they're getting a lot of air time. Check out…
