Post Malone x Harley-Davidson Launches as Part of Harley-Davidson’s H-D Collections on the Same Day as his Fifth Full Length Album Austin

MILWAUKEE (July 28, 2023) – Harley-Davidson and GRAMMY® Award-nominated, 8x RIAA diamond-certified global superstar Post Malone, teamed up for the first time to create a limited-edition apparel collection. The collection is a celebration of Post’s love for the iconic brand.

With the most RIAA diamond-certified singles from any artisan a brazen style all his own, Post Malone shines unlike any other singer-songwriter of our generation. The garments in the collection are as bold and clean as the polished brightwork on his custom chrome Harley-Davidson® Low Rider ST motorcycle.

Available as part of Harley-Davidson’s H-D® Collections, a grouping of unique lifestyle apparel lines, the Post Malone® x Harley-Davidson® collection is a combination of collaborative partner branding, clean and contemporary text designs, chrome treatments, and halftone graphics that either pay homage to or directly pull from classic H-D imagery. Collection highlights include a “Chrome Malone” tee, hoodie, and pant; the iconic Harley-Davidson bar and shield set chrome flame badge tees, a studded vest and pant set, and accessories like horsepower leather gloves and a flame badge silver chain.

“I’m beyond pumped to share this collab with Harley-Davidson! After a lot of work and love, we’re so proud of what we’ve created,” said Post Malone.

This coming Friday, July 28th Post will release his highly anticipated fifth full-length record Austin via Mercury Records/Republic Records. The album, self-titled after Post’s legal name, is a guitar heavy offering which features his already released songs, “Chemical,” “Mourning” and “Overdrive,” as well as 14 additional new tracks.

On Tuesday, July 18, Post Malone teased the collection by wearing the white tee featuring the Chrome flame Harley-Davidson logo during his performance at TSX Entertainment in the heart of New York City. He was the first artist in history to perform there, treating eager fans to an exclusive pre-listing party of his forthcoming album, Austin.

Norton Opens First Flagship Showroom

Norton Opens First Flagship Showroom At The Bike Shed London

Five additional United Kingdom locations will comprise the brand’s early distribution network.

with inputs by Dustin Wheelen from https://www.rideapart.com

Indian automotive giant TVS had acquired Norton Motorcycles in April 2020 after a tumultuous period in the OEM’s history. However, since then this legendary British brand has kept its head down, opening its Solihull factory, hiring a new CEO, and receiving a £100M British Pounds Sterling (~$125M USD) investment in two years’ time.

In October, 2022, Norton started rolling out its 2023 Commando 961. With a firm eager to get its products into riders’ hands, Norton opens its first retail location within London’s The Bike Shed.

“Seeing the Norton brand move from within the four walls of Norton HQ and out into the marketplace is positive on a number of levels,” claimed Norton Chief Commercial Officer Christian Gladwell. “More dealers mean more riders enjoying the results of the hard work and dedication that the entire team at Norton has contributed towards.”

Known as Norton Atelier, this space will showcase Norton’s V4SV superbike alongside the Commando 961. Customers can purchase and/or test ride both models at the Shoreditch Bike Shed chapter.

Norton apparel designed by Savile Row fashion designer Nick Tentis is also available at the new showroom. Tentis’ has also influenced this retail space itself.

“For the first one I wanted to create a space reflecting the history and values of the Norton brand while also creating the perfect environment to display the new clothing collection,” explained Tentis.

Norton will also establish showrooms at Krazy Horse London, Crawley’s P&H Motorcycles, Sheffield’s Via Moto, Bodmin’s Thor Motorcycles, and Cheshire’s Oakmere Motor Group. These locations will offer test rides, maintenance, and parts and accessories.

We can’t wait for this epic brand to expand their global footprint. Let’s hope it does not become a fancy apparel brand like Deus Ex Machina and sells more motorcycles than jackets & tees.

Ural Motorcycles: Keep On Going

By General Posts

On February 24th, 2022, an unimaginable tragedy unraveled for the whole World.

While we’ve felt totally and utterly powerless to stop the rockets, to stop the insanity, we promised to do the one thing that we could: to keep Ural alive, to protect our employees and to be there for our customers, against all odds.

Today, a year later, we can say – we did it.

Our team works relentlessly around the clock to keep production rolling. Every single bike coming from our new home in Kazakhstan is not only the best quality machine we at Ural have put out since we took over the brand a little over twenty years ago, but also a token of our fierce commitment to life.

To all our customers around the world who support and believe in us, we are eternally grateful. Ride safe and share your light!

Here’s to Life!

Supercross vs Motocross: The Difference

By General Posts

The world of dirt bike riding is full of thrills and adventures. This thrill and excitement are often shared among dirt bike enthusiasts through various tournaments and events.

Supercross and Motocross are two such events that keep dirt bike fans on the edge of their seat. The fans of this adventure sport are very passionate about each of them.

But are they both similar or two completely different race events?

Let’s find out!

Supercross

The simplest definition of supercross is a race involving dirt bikes that takes place in a stadium on tracks with different obstacles. A rider needs to navigate through the tracks with much smoothness and speed. The fastest one wins the race, leaving others behind on the track.

Motocross

Motocross shares a lot of similarities with supercross, with some differences. It takes place in natural or simulated terrain. Due to its outdoorsy nature, the tracks are very different. They are much longer and wider. The ramps are higher with farther jumps. Also, the winner requires different strategies, requiring more physical endurance to succeed. To be safe, men and womens motocross gear are crucial elements that should be taken into consideration.

The first motocross was held in 1901 in London, UK. Since then, it has found its way to Australia and has become a popular sport here. It is commonly referred to as MX.

The Difference Between Motocross & Supercross

MX and SX can be differentiated in many different aspects. From the venue to how a winner is chosen, both have their rules, factors, and elements.

Here is the complete difference between motocross and supercross.

Venue

The venue of both motocross and supercross is one of the key differences between them. Supercross dirt biking takes place in an indoor stadium or artificial terrain. On the other hand, motocross dirt biking takes place in a more outdoor setting with natural terrains.

Bikes

In both races, riders use 250cc and 450cc dirt bikes depending on the level of the race. The key difference is that, in supercross, the bikes need tighter suspension for tight and quick cornering. At the same time, bikes in motocross need higher speeds for wider and more complex tracks. Also, the suspension requires constant tuning.

Tracks

Another major difference between motocross and supercross is the track. Considering the fact that the venues for both races are entirely different, it is evident that the tracks will also be different.

The tracks in motocross are longer, larger, and wider compared to supercross, where tracks are more compact. In motocross, the natural terrains are used for tracks, whereas in supercross are artificial. Although the tracks for supercross can sometimes be larger as it is held in an indoor arena, it is entirely up to the organisers to create the track.

Obstacles

Obstacles in both races are different due to the venue. In supercross, the obstacles are created artificially because the venue is an indoor arena. On the other hand, the obstacles in motocross are natural elements.

The obstacles in motocross are usually logs, rocks, fallen trees etc. In supercross, the obstacles are artificially created for higher jumps with a lot of high bumps, turns, whoops, and corners. In motocross, considering the track is wider and the obstacles are natural, the rider gets more time to think and strategise, whereas, in motocross, they need to speed through.

Final Words

When starting out, riders start with motocross, as it is packed with the natural thrill, excitement, and adventure of dirt bike riding. Supercross is a great way to test your skills. Both races are entirely different, but the sole purpose is the same, fun and excitement. If you are just starting out, we advise you to start with motocross because once you get the hang of it, supercross will be relatively easier.

Craft and Punishment

A Tale of Twisted Fates of Artisans

Deus Ex Machina was arguably the most popular and most impressive global brand for custom built motorcycles.

Deus Ex Machina was built upon the development and creation of custom motorcycles. A clothing line got added for those fans of the brand who found it more satisfactory to order a Deus tee-shirt. This motorbike brand is now a luxury apparel handling the biggest names in fashion, peddling dreams to people, nay, to the masses.

“Deus Ex Machina makes high-end motorcycles and loses money on each one” announced the newspapers.

“That’s why we make clothing,” said Deus founder and owner Dare Jennings in that news report. “Otherwise, we’d go broke.”

How could this be true? Why would one of the most successful and iconic custom motorcycle brand of the 21st century lose thousands of dollars on every bike they sell?
