"...For folks who like to go fast, the Bonneville Salt Flats are Mecca. The actual speeds they reach there may not be the tops -- the grainy surface and thin air knock a few mph off what a determined motorist can do on, say, a good stretch of Texas highway -- but the wide-open expanse, the tradition, and the challenge of racing against the best have made Bonneville the clear standard when it comes to land speed records..."
"...Sure, but turn your attention toward Chicago for a moment, cineaste. The Chicago of several years past, specifically, when Homaro "Omar" Cantu's Moto restaurant was tearing the country a new, um, alimentary canal with its experimental forays into molecular gastronomy and that whole chef-as-mad-scientist scene that Ferran Adrià had kicked off in Spain's ElBulli...."
"...Moto Guzzi 1,000 Le Mans..."
"...What happens from this point on is a mystery even Mr. Moto would have a hard time puzzling out -- something about a guy with a vacuum strapped to his back tracking the catgirls via their kitty brain waves..."
"...THE MR. MOTO COLLECTION: Volume One..."
"...1800 E. 51st, 928-0014 www.cityofaustin.org/parks/aquatics.htm. Emma Long Park With pops and hops that’ll make your jaw drop, Emma Long has a motocross trail that lures the mad ones who’d rather muddy up their chrome than show it off..."

"...8-11pm: Moto X Best Whip Final, Moto X Step Up Final, Skateboard Big Air Final (ESPN)..."
"...This year's iteration of ESPN's X Games will be the third and final year hosted in the ATX, so don't miss your last chance to catch the biggest skateboard, moto X, and BMX stars in action and up close as they land tricks that shouldn't be humanly possible. There's a light lineup Thursday with the LifeProof Moto X Step Up Final (7:30pm) and Harley-Davidson Flat-Track Racing (9pm) preceding a performance from Dallas' punkabilly mainstays the Reverend Horton Heat (10:15pm)..."
"...Many of the world's greatest extreme sport athletes ride into town this weekend for the X Games, a three-day event at Circuit of the Americas that includes skateboarding, Moto X, Rally Cars, and BMX. Metallica, Nicki Minaj, and big athletic names like Tony Hawk are scheduled for appearances, and Austin's own BMX gold medalist Chase Hawk will compete..."
"...Moto: This puzzle platformer has a fair amount of depth, but the game's logic never revealed itself to me. The variety of guns and things to shoot to help you get from point A to B is interesting but the physics are stunted at best and confounding at worst..."
"...3 does boast some boppers but there is markedly less oomph behind the singing and dancing – the choreography is actually a bit dull, which is puzzling as Sie (who also directed Step Up: All In) has made a name for herself in the field. This musical focuses less on the actual music (Britney Spears’ 2003 hit “Toxic” even feels a bit gross considering the context – but OK, we get it, the Bellas are grown, but we knew that because they’re all wearing moto jackets now) and spends more time constructing backstories for characters we already know and love...."
"...That's not to say the menu (from Changthong, Qui, and Moto Utsunomiya) is about novelty, but to suggest it has something new to say about vernacular cuisine. Perhaps fittingly, Thai-Kun's best dishes are those most confident with that famous Thai spice..."
"...The big news is the addition of the hot dogs previewed at the Qui first anniversary celebration in June. The Moto Dog is custom-made from Berkshire pork and piled with Karashi mustard, Kewpie mayonnaise, pickled cabbage, nori, negi, and shaved bonito – all on an Easy Tiger butter bun...."

"...Folks are often asked, when confronted with concerns about their future, what their five-year plan is. Well, it's been nearly five years since Paul Qui and Moto Utsunomiya started moonlighting from their Uchi gigs, operating their Asian-fusion, street-food-focused East Side King in the backyard of the Liberty on East Sixth..."
"...Sixth) is set to open March 1 in the former Cheer Up Charlie's space. Also debuting on the property is the newest trailer-food concept from Paul Qui, Thai Changthong, and Moto Utsunomiya: Thai-Kun at Wonderland will be dishing up their versions of Thai street food specialties....."
"...The evening began with a Sake One Saktail Quick Mix Challenge where each contestant had to create a cocktail using Sake One Sake Moto. Prater started his big winning evening with a Saktail called Mizu, made with Sake Moto, orange, lemon, lavender, and rice wine vinegar...."
"...Without former driver-turned-race-promoter Tavo Hellmund, there would have been no Formula One race in Austin. Without his friend, former 500cc World Champion Kevin Schwantz, the MotoGP would never roar across Central Texas..."
"...Most recently he's been on the road: representing Top Chef at high-profile charity events, attending an international chef's symposium, and vacationing in Japan. "I spent a couple of days visiting my business partner Moto Utsunomiya's hometown and did a two-day stage at a restaurant called Kanawa in Hiroshima," he reported..."
