The series consists of the Street Triple S, the Street Triple R, and the Street Triple RS. They all feature a 765 CC triple engine with 121 units of horsepower. The street will never be the same again with these three badboys racing down it – all have their own unique stylings and are helping Triumph owners find newer, faster roads.
As bikers, bacon is a huge, huge part of our lives. It is the staple for any and every get together or barbecue we attend with our brothers and sisters. It is a versatile part of every meal – it can be used for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, and even desserts. So today, we thought it’d be fun here at BON to test your bacon knowledge – check out the many different types of bacon, below.
Raise your hand if you remember the 1991 biker action film, Harley Davidson And The Marlboro Man! The film, written by Don Michael Paul and directed by Simon Wincer, starred Mickey Rourke and Don Johnson, and turned out to be a failure of epic proportions at the box office back in 1991. But that didn’t stop it from becoming a cult classic of the 1990’s, which is why today, we’d like to take a look back to the now nearly 30 year old film by sharing its official trailer.
The English Bulldog in today’s video has the biker code down pat. It ain’t easy looking all cute and cool while riding a motorcycle, but this motorcycle riding pup, who goes by the name of Sweets, does it with ease. Sweets knows how to do motorcycle safety – that’s obvious with her super cool helmet and goggles – but she also knows the way of the road. She looks around for other riders while she’s cruising, and knows that you don’t pass another biker out there without at least saying hello.
To look at the incredible, one of a kind Lamborghini Motorcycle is to take a look into the mind of a man who is quite one of a kind himself, Chuck Beck. He is a living look back into the do-it-yourself speed culture that we knew to be the 1960’s, and the creative engineering that is his mind has developed literally anything and everything that you could imagine. He was a master fabricator for Shelby in his earlier days, building a supercar destroyer from a Ford Fiesta, and he made his career by building fiberglass replicas of both Lister and Porche racing cars. More recently, Beck built a motorcycle using a Lamborghini V-12 powered engine.
Ugh, our hearts. Last week, hundreds of Ducati motorcycles were destroyed in a fire at a Escondido, CA dealership – one its owners spent over a decade building. The building was fully engulfed in flames when firefighters were called to the blaze at about 10:30 PM, to the Moto Forza dealership in Escondido. The blaze, which totaled the small community dealership, has the owners, employees, and dedicated customers in tears.

Ladies and gents…do not try this at home. Because we love you and we want you to live. The video we’re sharing with you today only reiterates that it is not always about the bike one is on, but that its about the skill that rider possesses. Both the Dyna rider and the rider filming it all in today’s video possess extreme skill; the kind of skill that some of us only wish to have, and what happens will totally blow your mind.
Only a year after Playboy Magazine banished the use of fully nude photos in their magazines and publications, they’ve decided to reverse the decision, and are now bringing nudity back. The long-standing magazine had fully instituted its no-nudes policy with their March 2016 issue, due to an effort to ramp up circulation of the magazine and get more mainstream advertisers to buy into it, but it didn’t work. Cooper Hefner, Playboy founder Hugh Hefner’s son, became the Chief Creative Officer of the magazine last October, and this past Monday, he took to Twitter to admit that it was “a mistake” to remove nudity from the publication entirely.
As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis was jailed back in 2014 for plotting his wife Meggan’s murder, after allegedly attempting to pay an undercover police officer $1000 to kill her. The murder-for-hire plan originally sentenced him for six years in prison, but sources have announced that he was freed on December 17, 2016 – a fact that has been confirmed now by California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. He served less than half of the sentence he was given back in 2014.

The video we have for you today will completely reaffirm your love for Harley-Davidson. It’s a standoff at a red light; a Harley sits, awaiting the light to turn green when he is approached by another rider, who sits on a Yamaha R6 street bike, and motions for him to race down the next stretch of roadway. From the looks of it, the Harley might be a Street Glide, maybe a Softail – it’s hard to tell – however, the model doesn’t particularly matter when he leaves the Yamaha R6 in his dust.
The first Wall of Death in the British Isles appeared in Southend during June 1929 at the Kursaal Amusement Park, one of the world’s very first amusement parks, and featured motorcycles on a 20 ft wooden wall. The Wall Of Death was a carnival sideshow, which featured a silo (or barrel-shaped) wooden cylinder, ranging from 20 to 36 feet in diameter, and was made of wooden planks. Inside such a structure, motorcyclists would travel along the vertical wall and perform stunts, only to be held in place by friction and centrifugal force. Today, we’re sharing video with you from the past, of a female motorcyclist performing stunts at the Southend Wall Of Death, and it is wild!
The bike in today’s video is truly one of a kind. It’s not just a motorcycle, it’s a beautiful piece of artwork. The Harley-Davidson Shovelhead Gooseneck is a beauty all of its own, and this one in particular will have you melting into a puddle. The sound of this beast is music to the ears, not to mention the clean and perfectly maintained body of this amazing creature. The owner of this bike must be one proud papa, because this one is an extra special piece for the Harley-Davidson lover.
The road is our path to freedom as motorcyclists. It can also contain several obstacles, such as potholes, sink holes, cracks, pooling/ponding of water, plus the months of construction it takes to fix those obstacles, sometimes causing delays for our riding time, and making stressful times out of our bike trips. But, what if there was another way? KWS, a VolkerWessels company based in Vianen, the Netherlands has been working on a plastic composite road concept, called the Plastic Road, and it may soon become a reality.
Do you remember the music from the 1990’s, BON family? Music is such a huge part of our life as motorcyclists, and it has seen us through many roads, twists, and turns for all the decades we’ve been travelling on two wheels. Today, we have a video that’s bound to made us feel a tad old – it’s a compilation of 38 individual songs that turn 20 years old this year. Listening to it, you’ll feel like the 1990’s were just here yesterday – and you may even still remember the lyrics to many of them we’re about to see today. Catch the list of all 38 songs, and view the incredible video below.

Every now and then, we like to look into motorcycle history here at BON. In 1930’s Munich, Germany, if one was looking for some entertainment to fulfill their day, they might find it in some daring and insane motorcycle gymnasts, performing tricks and stunts alongside the roaring of motorcycle engines. See, back in the 1930’s, Germany was the epicenter of leading motorcycle manufacturers; clinching the reputation of being the country with the highest density of motorcycles in the entire world – earning the right to show off.

We’re not kidding. It’ll change the way you clean your bike forever.
Some call “Devil’s Lullaby” by Boogaboo the best biker anthem ever written!
Harley-Davidson is facing a particularly slow domestic market – a situation that is only offset by a 2.3% increase in international company sales. This is bad news, which has forced the Milwaukee based motorcycle manufacturer to come up with some ideas to boost sales and generate new interest in the company. What have they been able to brainstorm to combat their sales woes? A plan, to roll out 50 new motorcycle models, within the next 5 years – including an all electric motorcycle.
After news this week broke that Harley-Davidson cancelled a visit with President of The United States Donald Trump at their plant in Milwaukee, WI, executives from the company decided instead, to attend a meeting with the commander in chief on his own turf, in Washington, DC. The original meeting, which was supposed to focus on American manufacturing strategies in the US, allegedly came with too many fears of planned protests, forcing Harley-Davidson to regroup and find a different way to make the meet happen.
The Thunderbird Motorcycle Club, an MC based out of Duluth, Minnesota, has two very big passions – riding motorcycles, and helping Veterans. For years, they have been collecting and giving donations to the Minnesota Veterans Home in Silver Bay, MN. The group of bikers consists of several Veterans itself, and this year, through various fundraisers, they were able to donate $3,000.00 to the residents at the Silver Bay home.
It’s no secret that Budweiser has popped out some pretty epic Superbowl commercials in the past, and this year only proves, that alongside Harley-Davidson, Budweiser has some of the best advertising in the business. For years, Budweiser has wowed us with amazing commercial concepts, and the 2017 Budweiser Superbowl commercial, named “Born The Hard Way” has a twist to it, that none of us saw coming.
You have got to give the little lady in today’s video the ultimate credit for not giving up. The woman appears to be about 80 pounds soaking wet, and gives it her all, again and again, to try and kickstart an old school Harley Davidson Chopper motorcycle. She even doubts she can get it started, at first, and the video is almost painful to watch, as she uses both of her tiny little legs to force the kick start lever down to fire up the bike.
Earlier this morning we shared the news with you straight from NY Daily; Harley Davidson has cancelled the visit that was (allegedly) scheduled with President of the United State Donald Trump, amid fears of planned protests. The newly elected President was supposed to stop at the Harley Davidson Factory in Milwaukee, WI, where he was set deliver an economic address highlighting manufacturing, as well as sign more executive orders related to American manufacturing. We’ve got the lowdown on the news for you here at BON, as well as exclusive video from the NY Daily News, announcing the decision to cancel the visit.
Wild Willy Parsons is an outstanding biker, who has also been a successful comedian since 1985. Since then, he has pushed to remove the typical biker stereotypes, and has done so by taking the stage in search of laughs, fun times, and a great audience. He tours the country steadily, and headlines clubs, corporate functions, benefits, and of course, biker events. The now divorced father of two has made himself as household name, known nationally as The World’s Original Biker Comic. Today we’re sharing with you, one of his live shows, from a few years back at Caroline’s in New York City.
Sometimes, Harley Davidson is what makes a family. That statement totally rings true in the commercial we’re sharing with you today. Sponsored by Michelin, this commercial will seriously have you reaching for the tissues. I don’t know how we’ve failed to come across this one before, but I’m not ashamed to say that it’s definitely made me teary eyed. It epitomizes the love a father has for his children, and the bond they’re able to strengthen through their love of Harley Davidson motorcycles.
On January 26, 2017, legendary rock artist Alice Cooper joined Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale and and Beasto Blanco at The Basement East in Nashville, TN for what was a historical rendition of Cooper’s famous song, “School’s Out For Summer”.

The live performance of the rebel anthem was caught on video, and we’re psyched to share the incredible moment here at BON with you today!
We’ve posted more than our fair share of really cool little kids here at BON, and the kid in today’s video definitely deserves the recognition for being one of the coolest kids on the internet today. You’ll be impressed by his taste in music, for sure, but you’ll be even more impressed with how he expresses his refined music tastes. He’s sitting in the car, enjoying the sunny day…lip syncing and headbanging to nothing other than heavy metal, and we are so, so proud.

Today, we’re here to put that knowledge to the test – we’re hosting a Harley-Davidson Q&A – and we’d like you to see how many of the 5 Harley-Davidson facts below that you can get right.

She is known for her contract with the motorcycle manufacturer, and she wouldn’t have it any other way. Here at BON, we’ve been able to dig up an exclusive behind the scenes video that Marisa did for her Harley-Davidson campaign, and we’re pretty psyched to be sharing it with all of you today.
If you’re near Atlanta, GA and are looking for something fun to do this weekend, BON is dishing out all of the details on the Great American Motorcycle show, which runs this Saturday and Sunday, January 28-29, 2017 in America’s peach city.

It is no secret that the motorcycle community has come together on several different occasions to make a difference in their communities – so today at BON, we’re asking you to join forces to help support a 3 year old boy, who was just diagnosed with a life-threatening cancer. 3 year old Abel is a bright, beautiful, and brave boy who lives in Central New York, with his mom, Jen. What Jen thought was going to be a quick trip to Urgent Care for a simple belly ache turned into a mother’s worst nightmare, when it resulted in her little boy being diagnosed with Stage 3, High Risk, Neuroblastoma.
The Harley-Davidson MT500 was manufactured way back in 1990’s – only in the United States. It is an incredibly rare Harley-Davidson motorcycle model, and a killer collectible item for Harley-Davidson enthusiasts. Fewer than 500 Harley-Davidson MT500 motorcycles were made, and one of these extremely hard to get bikes just went to auction at the Los Angeles Motorcycle Auction, selling for a whopping $18,400.00. This bike is so badass, we just have to share it with you here at BON today.
Yesterday, the world learned about the passing of Allman Brothers Band drummer, Butch Trucks. The 69 year old musician was a founding member and the drummer for the Allman Brothers for 48 years – having joined brothers Duane and Greg Allman, and bassist Barry Oakley in 1969 to form the classic American rock band. Initially, news reports of Butch’s passing contained very little information, but new details have emerged today about the cause of his death, and nothing will prepare you for how tragic this is.
Have you ever visited the Iron Horse Motorcycle Bar in New York City? It’s a pretty rad little dive bar in Manhattan, NY – nestled right beside the Brooklyn Bridge, just a few blocks from the shores of the East River. It boasts an outgoing all-female crew of bartenders, and serves up a pretty beefy selection of the typical bar foods alongside a pretty decent selection of craft beers, import beers, and wines. That being said – it’s a dive bar, not somewhere you’d go to expect a quiet intimate conversation, which apparently, was just too much for Yelp reviewer Megan to handle.
This week, the internet introduced us to Dave Crosby and his super cute 4 year old daughter, Claire. When the 29 year old dad sat on his couch with his totally adorable daughter to sing the classic tune “You’ve Got A Friend In Me”, what he never expected was how the internet would respond to it. The tune, which was featured way back in 1995 in the highly popular Toy Story movie collection, was originally performed by singer/songwriter Randy Newman.
Life is entirely too serious these days. You can’t log on to any of your social media accounts without having something political being shoved down your throat. And if that’s not bad enough, all of your friends are fighting about if they’re on the left, or the right, why what they’re saying is more correct than what someone else says….enough already, right? Well, today we’ve gone on a mission to lighten up the internet, and we’re doing it with 15 motorcycle funnies.
While motorcycle clubs aren’t for everyone, being a member of one can be rewarding and enriching experience. When riding a motorcycle is about having freedom – the freedom to go where you want, when you want, however you want – why would one consider restricting their activities within an organized club? There are several reasons, actually, and today, we’re outlining 5 of the many benefits to joining a motorcycle club or organization.
Not all of us have the luxury of walking into a dream Harley-Davidson shop and selecting a shiny, brand new motorcycle model off of the gleaming sales floor. And that’s perfectly ok. Many of us have new-to-us, already loved by someone else, used motorcycles. Some of us even purposely buy older, used bikes. But in this day and age, not every seller out there can be trusted, so what can you do to protect yourself when buying a motorcycle from a private seller?
Guys, Spring is coming! I know, I know, not soon enough. But seriously, it’ll be here before we know it, so why not spend the time now – while we’re not getting out to ride the bike daily – to get ready for when we can finally de-garage the bike and get to riding! There’s really only 6 or 7 weekends left until Spring, so I thought today, we’d get our plans for the road going, with 5 songs to jam out to while cruising on the bike. Check the list out below.
Grandparents have the best wisdom. That’s proven in this funny Harley-Davidson commercial, where Grandpa tells stories of his younger, more fun Harley days to his grandkids. We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again, Harley-Davidson has some of the best commercials on television today, and their Grandpa commercial is just more proof that the American motorcycle company knows best when it comes to advertising.
Here comes the bride…literally. On a Harley Davidson Fat Bob. The way most brides want to arrive to their wedding!
YouTuber PitPat23 filmed this sweet video of a Harley V-Twin motor at Lake Washington Institute of Technology in Kirkland, Wa back in 2011.

Although this particular motor is widely associated with motorcycles, V-twin engines are also produced for the power equipment industry – they are often found to be the heartbeat in riding lawnmowers, small tractors, and electric power generators.
Does your heart roar like a sweet v-twin engine?
Does it flutter when you hear the roar of thunder headers coming down the road?
If so, then we have the perfect new collection for you!
