In a stark comparison between two motorcyclists...The guy you see in this image giving the speeding camera the big eff you (Ceelo Green would be so proud) was ticketed by the police for speeding after several reports were issued that he was riding without a plate.

In this day and age when roadways are overly crowded, gas prices are astronomical, and global warming is a concern, you'd think we'd be entering the age of the motorcycle. Think about it.

Harley-Davidson has gone interestingly eclectic with its new Collection X Exhibit. Through August 21, you can see some really unique historic items in Harley-Davidson’s Milwaukee Museum.

The goal? To see how real riders stack up against their biker stereotypes.
