In 1978, lots of things were going on. Fonzi was jumping the shark, production of the VW Beetle was finally halted, and gold reached an all time high of $200 per ounce. Also, following the energy crisis, Japanese vehicle imports accounted for half of the US import market. These imports included the mighty Kawasaki KZ1000. These bikes were a story in their own right, but July’s bike of the month winner has a special story...Read More
AHRMA racing at New Jersey Motorsports Park this past weekend quickly took on the moniker: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly...
For $200, Dayton, Ohio’s Kyle Nearing scored this 1975 Honda CB550, which had been rotting in a Midwestern yard for untold years. The motor had been removed but the price was right. At first, Nearing, whose only other bike has been a 2007 Yamaha R6, didn’t completely tear down the CB550. Instead, he got it running and installed new handlebars and an exhaust and rode it in the rough shape it was...Read More
Durant, Oklahoma’s Ron Erickson isn’t much of a brand guy. He doesn’t bleed red for Honda and hasn’t sold his soul to Harley-Davidson. He started out at five years old with a 3.5 horsepower Briggs & Stratton minibike from Sears and has owned 20 motorcycles since, including seven Harleys, four BMWs, three Triumphs, three Hondas, one Yamaha, a Moto Guzzi, a Ducati and now a Suzuki...Read More

It wasn't more than a week later that he stumbled across a '69 Bonnie basket case up near Gurnee, IL, about 2.5 hrs away.

After a few days of race-prep, wrenching, and (depending who you ask) a bit of R&R, the DCC race crew arrived at Road America, in beautiful Elkhart Lake Wisconsin. Here they would make their stand in round 6 of the AHRMA Road Racing championship. After putting the skills and lessons learned last year on the 4 mile 14 turn track to the test, it was clear that our boys mean business. The proof was in the pudding!
The 4th annual Progressive Insurance MOTOBLOT powered by Triumph Motorcycles and fueled by Rebel Yell Bourbon takes over the streets of Fulton and Justine in Chicago. Bike culture, gear, food, beer, and tons of music!Read More
Welcome to GingerMan Raceway, located in the picturesque lakeshore town of South Haven, Michigan, home to Round 5 of the 2017 AHRMA Road Racing Championship. The DCC Crew was short a few riders for this outing, but that didn't stop them from throwing down some serious laps.
We don’t mind long walks on the beach and candle lit dinners, but what really turns us on is motorsport history and racing. The Isle of Man Tourist Trophy combines these two things like no other event on earth. Read more...Read More
Nick Dahlinger rescued his bike as much as he rebuilt it. A 1974 Honda CB360 in rough shape, it was on a sort of Craigslist tour, getting passed around from owner to owner who never really committed to making it run, roll and shine...Read More
