Iconic Rides – 2024 Yamaha MT-09

Normally when a company does a mid-cycle refresh on a bike, you get some minor updates like a new dash or LED lighting. Yamaha made sure they took care of those but they also brought something bigger to the table: a philosophical shift in what the MT-09 should feel like. After a 110-mile ride with […]

Razee’s Motorcycle Center

A couple of days after Adam and I checked out the Newport Car Museum, we also had the chance to meet Gordon Razee (the son of Ralph Razee) and the man behind Razee’s Motorcycle Center.

Iconic Visits The Newport Car Museum

Adam and Abhi were recently at Iconic East to work on the new building and scope out local events/venues that we want our friends to check out when they come visit us. One of the things we saw was the Newport Car Museum, so here’s what Abhi thought!

Iconic Visits AHRMA Laguna Seca 2023

Last month, the American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association (AHRMA) brought its traveling show to Laguna Seca. Iconic was planning on being at Laguna Seca the day after AHRMA anyway for an Aprilia Racers Day event, so it was an easy call to head up a day early and check out some classics!

Iconic Collections – The Moto Guzzi Museum

A few years ago, Abhi was in Italy for a cover story with Motorcyclist magazine. One of his favorite stops on that trip was Moto Guzzi’s official museum in Mandello del Lario. Even if you’re nearby, it can be difficult to visit because it’s only open from 3pm to 4pm during the week (2:30pm to […]

Motorcycles at Monterey Car Week 2023

A buddy named Larry F. reached out to me a couple of weeks ago saying that he was going to be at Monterey for the annual Car Week and he was hoping to meet up. Unfortunately, I couldn’t make it up this year but he was kind enough to share a few photos from his […]

Iconic Rides – 2022 Ducati Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak

More, more, more. That’s what every customer wants when a new version of a motorcycle comes out, so when Ducati revamped their iconic Multistrada lineup last year it was no surprise to see more technology, more cylinders, more power…even more wings. What did surprise me was seeing more in terms of the front wheel – […]

Iconic Rides – 2022 BMW R18 Transcontinental

“I’ve never seen a BMW that big.” I’m in Alamosa, Colorado and a gentleman at the fuel pump across from me has been eying my BMW R18 Transcontinental loaner for the last couple of minutes. Once he finally says something, I take my earplugs out and ask him to repeat himself. “I can’t believe BMW […]

Iconic Collections – The Race Bikes of Museu Moto Bassella

In Northeast Spain, there’s a small settlement (population: 231) called Bassella. Inside this lovely community is one of the most wonderful motorcycle museums you’ll find (motorcycle population: much more than 231). It’s truly an Iconic Collection – let’s spend some time focused on their race bike collection!

Iconic Rides – 2021 Aprilia Tuono 660

Five months ago I had the chance to ride one of the first RS660s that came into the US. Despite some pre-production issues, I loved it…and it made “me incredibly impatient for the Tuono 660.” Well, my wait is finally over! Let’s take a look and what’s good, what’s bad, and what’s iconic about Aprilia’s […]

IMS Visits Iconic Motorbikes!

Our friends over at the International Motorcycle Show recently came by the shop as part of a revamp for their second season of Inside the Garage. For this season, IMS is changing things up and taking garage tours of “celebrity riders, racers, and key players in the powersports industry and see what they got stashed […]
