Motorcycle stunt bikes are like an undead version of their former supersport selves. Mutated, mutilated, and deprecated, the stunt bike is sometimes a rattier version of what it used to be... other times, it's a much meaner, grittier, and sharper machine. The stunt bikes are as unique as their individual riders. The modifications are as bold as his or her's courage (and bank account) allow.
There are 10 key modifications stunters seem to agree on when it comes to what your bike needs to help you live up to your full potential, and we've got them here.
This winter I attended a motorcycle industry pub night. I had the pleasure of sharing tables with family-founded businesses such as KYMCO Canada and Motorcycle Mojo. I spoke with a Triumph marketer about MISSRIDER (once his band was done performing on stage, naturally). At the end of the night, CMG Online’s own Rob Harris and Brenda Cyr gave me a drive home.
Since 2007 I’ve been pushing for a stronger motorcycle riding community. Riders are the YOU in YouMotorcycle. At the pub night it struck me how tightly knit the motorcycle industry is in Canada.

Here are 10 Ways YOU can Find a Job in the Motorcycle Industry.
10 Things I Miss About My Harley, you know that at 22 years old I was on top of the world. My father had been off of chemotherapy for almost year and life was grand. After endless months of research and shopping around I carefully selected a Harley-Davidson motorcycle to celebrate all that was good in life.
As it turned out, I sold that bike less than a year later. There's a pair of gloves full of reasons why. Here are 10 things I won't miss about it.
A irritable old biker once told me that youth is wasted on the young. 22 years old is an exciting time in a man's life. He is full of vigor, prowess, and insatiable appetites. He is old enough to be witty and young enough to remember the end of his jokes. Likewise, he's often old enough to know better, and young enough not to care. The 22 year old male feels on top of the world.
It was at 22 years old I bought my first Harley-Davidson motorcycle. For a moment as brief as twilight, I was on top of the world. I miss that bike.
