Motorcycle mirrors haven’t advanced all that much since the early days of our sport. Sure, they’ve been made vibration-resistant or more aerodynamic, maybe with built-in turn signals if they’re really fancy, but mirrors aren't hotbeds of motorcycling innovation.

More often than not, the stockers just offer different views of my shoulders. I toss them in a box, get something aftermarket, and that’s that. With the “Smart Ride” project, based on an Eva EsseEsse9, Samsung and Energica imagine a future without traditional mirrors. That’s just one part of their new collaborative concept, which also explores smartwatch connectivity, ride recording, and combatting range anxiety.

Even the bike’s name is unconventional. Bolid-E is a play on “bolide,” or fiery meteor. I would not have named a motorcycle sporting Samsung smartphones after a flying fireball, but nobody asked me.

Ever heard of Gotland?

It’s a wind-swept island off the coast of Sweden. The local population is outnumbered many times over by the tourists who come to see Gotland’s beaches, visit the small towns, and soak up the sun. (Gotland generally receives the most sunlight anywhere in Sweden.) Oh, and the island hosts the largest enduro race in the world: the Gotland Grand National. There’s nothing quite like it.

Quick, name the motorcycle brand least likely to build an electric vehicle. Until last week, you would have said "Ural" — a company previously known only for its throwback sidecar rigs, with DNA dating back to World War II.

And yet, I recently found myself on a winding road through the woods just east of Seattle, trying out the company’s latest project: the batteries, controller, and motor from a Zero S, grafted into Ural CT sidecar outfit. Anyone who stops a Ural in a public place is familiar with something Ural owners call UDF, for Ural Delay Factor, because of the attention they draw. But this one also includes an additional WTF factor.

Alright, folks, we’re back for another inexpensive bike roundup.

Most people around here know I’m a fan of the curiosity in the moto industry known as the “leftover.” These are usually described as “last year’s models,” but the reality is that every now and then, a motorcycle falls through the cracks and can be had long after its model year is through — often for much less than what its asking price once was.

Note that these motorcycles often put dealers in a bind. If you score one of these leftovers, you are really helping a dealer out in many cases. Rarely, a dealer will simply pay cash for bikes for inventory, but more typically they’re “on floor plan,” meaning they are on consignment from the manufacturer, and the dealer pays interest on them each month they’re unsold on the sales floor. It’s not uncommon for a dealer to lose massive amounts of money on a bike that's been sitting around a long time, so even though they’re taking a big hit, it helps stop the financial bleeding when an old model sells.

Here are some of the most eye-popping deals in the USA right now. (I scour for these every now and again. Like I said, they interest me!)

We’ve all heard “fire it up once a week” or “gotta put cardboard under the tires.” There are as many superstitions floating around as there are different, but effective schools of thought on motorcycle storage.

If you have a system that works well for you, by all means, don’t let me rock your boat. Skip the lecture and get straight to the goods. Open to some new tips? Allow me to debunk nine of the most common bits of misinformation I’ve heard — cases of riders either doing too little, too much, or the wrong thing. You might learn a trick that saves you some effort and works just as well or better than what you’ve been doing.
