With old-school looks and useful tech, the Ural Patrol T Motorcycle ($12,400) is just the thing for poor-weather riding. Most notable on the Patrol T is its sidecar, which gives the bike its World War II feel — think Indiana Jones vs. the Nazis — but it's also the sidecar that gives it its stability in bad weather, thanks to the world's only on-demand two-wheel-drive sidecar drive shaft. Other features include an OHV air-cooled 4 cycle opposed twin cylinder engine, Herzog gears, Brembo brakes, a true reverse gear, a large sidecar storage compartment, straightforward maintenance, and true Russian heritage.
Yes, that most dangerous two-wheeled of Batman rides can finally be yours. This Custom Batpod ($100,000/obo) is a full scale 1:1 working replica of Batman's motorcycle from The Dark Knight, powered by a high output 650cc 4 stroke, water cooled engine with direct port nitrous injection, sitting on wheels that are 508mm across and complete with custom metal arm guards to hide the controls. Notably, it's not street legal, and will arrive with one chain removed so it won't even be ridable, but considering that only one stunt driver in the world was able to control the one used in the film, perhaps that's not the worst thing, after all.

Designed to evoke the spirit of the lean, powerful motorcycles of the 1950s, Hammarhead Motorcycles ($9,500-$18,500) are affordable, hand-built, rugged rides. Available in three models — the Royal Enfield Electra X-based Woodsman, the Triumph Scrambler-based Jack Pine (pictured), and the Royal Enfield Bullet-based Volta — these simple, sleek machines are quieter than your average chopper, making them perfectly suited to modern urban environments. In other words, chances of waking up neighbors with your late-night Taco Bell runs go way, way down. [Thanks, Jeremy]
