      I've seen this from both sides - for y3ears I was the one hitting up truck-owning friends to borrow their rides. Now that I've got one, I pay it forward. Moving a dinette set for a cousin this...

      This conspiracy has the same basis as most conspiracies - a group of supporters unwilling to accept harsh reality. Making this some scheme to move the show lets Clarkson fans say "See? He's not a...

      Been riding since I was 16 and I'm 52 now. The only time I laid down a bike was goofing with some friends in a parking lot at around that age. We'd set up a slalom with soda bottles and cans and the...

      For two grand, I would look at anything remotely sporty - the money would be much better spent on a motorcycle if performance tops the list. That means hitting the boat show (some big old luxury car)...

      Because a bad wash job damages the paint finish, and people don't like their property damaged? Plus, a large part of my youthful looks is eliminating the stress that comes from dealing with...

      When I bought mine they were standard. I remember the only disagreement I had at the dealer was they'd added "dealer-installed option" ac to all the cars, and bumped the price $1500; the only way to...

      That's unfair. It's regularly used by a small group that rides. The discussion is different than TCL in that it's more, let's say "relevant" instead of "reality-based." I wouldn't want it to turn...

      This was my ONLY gripe with Perillo BMW in Chicago. I would tell them not to wash my Z4 M Coupe and they would still wash it. Their response was "if we swirl it our detailers can buff it for you."...

      Please. Try shopping for a motorcycle on Craigslist some time. Not only are half the bikes untitled, bur sellers want full retail for them because "getting a title is easy." Uh-huh.

      I like the first gen but I've never tried to get one - they were hard to find back in the 1980s, when I bought my second-gen. It must be nigh-on impossible by now. A buddy's CVCC was rusted to hell...

      The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. In my case, I bought an old truck Dodge Dakota. Now begins the search for a bike to haul home, ideally a Honda CL450.

      Thirty years ago, fresh out of college, I bought an '85 Prelude in Graphite Grey with 5-speed. Sometimes I get nostalgic and look for one and all I see are models with mileages suited to astronomical...

      Didn't they die before it came online? I don't think it ws targeting Claire - no need for the contest if so - but rather she emerged as the best candidate.

      So far it's been better than I thought. I'm interested to see if they develop the anti-Root that Samaritan is creating, which indicates the new company doesn't have any more control than Northern...

      ^This. The whole idea was to make a race replica, not a street bike - to do something they'd never done rather than what they always do. The S1000R is a nice re-purposing of the tech they developed...

      I think Sutherland will want to keep the role alive just as a fallback, especially given how successful this run has been. There are rumors that the whole thing is a lead-in to a new version of 24...

      It's a nice bike but I think if I were in that market segment I'd just get the RR.
