Even in the dog days of summer, surfing the icy waters of New England will make your meat thermometer retract up into your body. Surf there in the winter & it will probably just fall off. But maybe not if you’ve got the Surf Sauna waiting for you onshore. It’s a portable sauna designed specifically for coldwater psycho surfers & made-to-order in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. If you don’t want one custom-built for you, just rent it.
For a company built on heritage, Harley-Davidson sure is dropping lots of new bikes. Last month it was the 750 Street, now it’s two new cruisers. The 2014 Low Rider retains some of its classic charms with its 5 spoke wheels and wrinkle black trim but the Twin Cam 103 motor is all-new & so are the dual front discs. The smaller 1200T SuperLow is a lightweight entry-level bagger featuring a 1200-CC Evo powerplant.
The Diavel is a 162-hp Italian masterpiece that makes other bikes in the “sport cruiser” category look mostly irrelevant. The performance of the torquey Testastretta 11-degree engine is not something people question and yet Ducati being Ducati, they’ve made improvements to the 2015 model: a new exhaust system, an uptick in torque, all-new LED lighting, and several features to refresh styling.
This is the G-Wagen of smokers. The Frontiersman Competition Smoker from Yoder is a 1.5-ton, tow-behind mobile unit with over 2000 sq. inches of cooking surface. Basically, yeah, Brontosaurus burgers for the whole crowd.
Koenigsegg refers their new One:1 model as a Megacar because it puts out 1 Megawatt of power. That means it goes from zero to 400KM/h in 20 seconds. Which roughly means it goes from zero to 250 MPH in the time it took you to read this drivel.
Modeled after 19th-Century writing desks (remember those?) this high-tech workbench features 26 drawers for storage and a spacious worktop that features a built-in computer, sound system and soldering station plus a unique lighted planetarium locking mechanism. via
Electric bikes are everywhere but this new one with fat tires will take effortless biking off-road. This 60-pound electric-assisted beast from Surface 604 Bikes has 4-inch wide tires that’ll sling mud for 20 miles on a charge and hit speeds of 20MPH.
FBE right here. Fastest Bentley ever. The brand is not known for performance but the 2015 Continental GT Speed is equipped with a 6-liter twin-turbo V12 that produces 626 hp with a top speed of 206 mph. Inside of course, this vehicle looks like a futuristic executive office suite.
Sportbrake is a goofy word for station wagon. And while many carmakers are moving away from this functional body style in favor of taller, less-sporty “crossover” blobs, it’s nice to see Jaguar bring XFR-S performance to a wagon. It’s got a punchy supercharged 5-liter V8, but will that be enough to catch the Benz or Audi sport wagons?
The motorcycle world was set ablaze when people first laid eyes on this custom cafe machine designed and built by Daniel Simon. The response was so good that now Lotus is actually going to produce this 200 HP rocket. And that’s how Lotus Motorcycles was born.
