2002 Harley-Davidson V-Rod

Although Harley-Davidson’s traditional bikes shared a number of key characteristics, including V-twin engines featuring a 45-degree-angle V, air cooling, and two-valve cylinder heads, none of that mattered when the V-Twin Racing Street Custom (VRSC), or just V-Rod, was rolled out for the 2002 model  year.

1938 Harley-Davidson UL

Despite the increasing popularity of its Knucklehead (overhead valve) engine in the late Thirties, Harley-Davidson continued to offer traditional flathead Big Twin powerplants on its bikes. An 80-cubic-inch flathead joined the existing 74-inch mill late in the 1935 model year, and for 1937, both gained the recirculating oiling system first seen on the Knucklehead.

The 2015 Elio is tentatively priced at $6800. The tiny three-wheeled vehicle accommodates two passengers sitting in tandem, motorcycle style.

It may have been an odd venue for a vehicle introduction, but the Elio is a pretty odd vehicle.

Unveiled during the recent Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the three-wheeled Elio’s claim to fame is great fuel economy and a promised $6800 sticker price.

ZAP Xebra

Though the Zap! Xebra boasts four doors, it has a stated load capacity of just 500 pounds.

Visit the Zap! website and poke around for a while, it’s kind of fun. What you’ll see is a dozen or so electric vehicles that fall readily into three categories: those that look like farm implements, those that look like crappy low-end Chinese cars (which they are), and those that look like seventh-grade concept-car design contest runner up drawings come to life.

motorcycle lane splitting in California

While this motorcycle maniac can legally split traffic in California, your grandmother can get a ticket in that state for walking across the street.

Although I’ve visited California frequently over the past 20 years—and even lived there briefly back in the ’70s—it always takes a while after arrival to acclimate to the local climate. And I don’t mean the weather. I mean the driving climate. Which, like the weather, differs from that of the rest of the country.
