Engage with your fellow road trippers

You could always ditch the technology and immerse yourself in a good old-fashioned conversation…

Get to know your traveling companions a little better by asking them interesting questions about their lives. This is the perfect way to establish common ground and, in turn, forge relationships with work colleagues that you often travel with but never have, for whatever reason, engaged with on a deeper level.

If the conversation doesn’t seem to be flowing, why not suggest playing a road trip game instead?  There are a whole host of fun pastimes for you and your group to try out in this instance, 13 of which are listed in this article.

Eat healthy food

Why not put the time you spend in the passenger seat to good use by resolving to eat a host of healthy road trip snacks? Long drives are a great time to increase your fruit intake simply because you aren’t surrounded by unhealthy temptations and treats when you’re sitting in a car for hours on end.

Beat the boredom on your next road trip by putting the above advice into practice.

Cult classic: A Harley XR1200 street tracker from Taiwan

Harley XR1200 street tracker by Fever Taiwan
There must be something in the water, because this is the second Harley XR1200 street tracker that’s popped up on our radar in as many weeks. We’re not complaining though. Even though it wasn’t a big sales hit, we’re fans of Harley-Davidson’s sportiest Sportster—mainly because it was such a hoot to ride.

It’s hard to pinpoint exactly why the Harley XR1200 didn’t stick around longer, but we have our theories. One is that the market simply wasn’t ready to accept a Harley that actually handled well. The other is that the styling was a mish-mash of too many influences.

The Motor Co. pitched the XR1200 as a flat tracker for the street—and gave it an XR750-inspired livery and upright seating position to match. But the XR’s tail section and goofy split-spoke wheels felt like 90s sportbike throwbacks. Still, it was nothing if not bold, and its awkwardness was arguably part of its charm.

This custom Harley XR1200 comes from Fever—a custom workshop based in Taoyuan City, just outside of Taipei in Taiwan. Their take on this cult classic is refreshing because it pushes the styling in one clear direction instead of trying to ride the line between multiple genres.

The Mighty Six: A brutal custom Honda CBX from The Netherlands

Custom Honda CBX 1000 by Moto Adonis
An email commissioning a new project is good news for any custom motorcycle workshop. But the crew at Moto Adonis in The Netherlands was particularly giddy when their latest project hit their inbox. The brief read like most others, save for one key detail—the client specifically requested a custom Honda CBX 1000.

Like many of us, Moto Adonis co-owners Arthur Renkema and Job Leussink idolize the mighty CBX. “It’s undoubtedly one of the most legendary machines ever built,” Job proclaims. “The sound of this beastly inline six-cylinder engine, skillfully crafted by Honda masters, is more than just noise; it’s a symphony of brute force that resonates as pure rebellion on two wheels.”

Despite their love for this 80s icon, Moto Adonis had no intention of simply creating a tidy Honda CBX 1000 restomod. “The bike was craving a contemporary, rugged touch,” explains Job. “And we didn’t just add a hint; no, we went all-out.”

Paying tribute to the CBX’s legacy, Arthur and Job kept the bike’s OEM fuel tank—but everything else was fair game. The guys set out to modernize the bike, while stripping back as much as they could to highlight its gargantuan engine. While we wouldn’t go as far as calling a six-cylinder superbike from the 80s ‘lithe,’ this CBX is one of the leanest we’ve seen.
