rise of the machina

ARENANeed proof that “retro-influenced” isn’t code for “puny”? Try standing in earshot of the Deus Ex Machina Boodaak.Its 650-cc single cylinder emits a sceneryshaking declaration that it’s more than just another nostalgia-drenched café racer. (Boodaak is derived from the noise an engine makes as you roll on and off the throttle.) While its swept-back handlebars, exposed framework, bullet-style tank, and forwardleaning stance certainly nod to the strippeddown 1960s motorcycles that Euros raced from café to café, its racing-spec engine is built to move. Yanked from a Honda XR650R, it brings the bike to 120 mph with a single piston that pounds out a ton of torque. Handcrafted over 500 hours by Deus’ Michael “Woolie” Woolaway, the one-of-a-kind Boodaak is a two-wheeled work of art. It represents a new class of…

light ’er up

Every man who is serious about cigars should smoke these five superior stogies. Ultra-premium and standing the test of time, they rank among the best in the world. Score the Cubans while vacationing anywhere outside the U.S.— and don’t worry about “accidentally” leaving a few in your suitcase for the flight home. Hey, it happens!1.COHIBA SIGLO VIFor many, Cohiba is synonymous with the Cuban cigar, and the Siglo VI arguably represents Cohiba at its most ambitious, luscious, and alluring. The Siglo line debuted in 1992, commemorating Columbus’ discovery of Cuba in 1492. Subsequently, Siglos I through V each represented a century since the momentous event. This latest iteration, introduced in 2002, manages to be ultra-rich yet incredibly smooth. It’s an unmatched wonder of tobacco blending that towers over nearly every…

whiskey business

Whiskeys are a lot like women—there are just so many different kinds to fall in love with. Think of the honeyed curves of bourbon. The smoky sophistication of single-malt scotch. The delicate allure of a Japanese blend. With so much good whiskey in the world—nearly two dozen countries fostering hundreds of distillers that produce thousands of varieties—it can be hard to stray from that go-to glass. In the hopes of expanding your hooch horizons, here’s a quick and easy guide to whiskeys that’s bound to go down smooth.AMERICAN WHISKEY1.BOURBONMade from a grain mixture of at least 51 percent corn, the burgeoning golden child of American spirits is aged in charred, new oak barrels and bottled at no less than 80 proof. And by the way, bourbon doesn’t have to be…

FOR GOLDBAR’S FRENCH 75 RECIPE AND BEHIND-THESCENES VIDEO, GO TO MAXIM.COM .“So it’s just me, by myself, in Cape Fear River in the middle of the night,” says Katia Winter, recalling filming in gatorinfested North Carolina waters for Fox’s supernatural smash, Sleepy Hollow, in which she plays Ichabod Crane’s witchy wife, Katrina. With her impossibly green eyes outshining the glittering backdrop of New York City’s GoldBar, Winter takes a sip of her French 75. “The stunt guy said, ‘Don’t worry. We haven’t seen any alligators today.’ The water’s black, and I’m looking at the surface for bubbles, waiting for a gator to pull me under. But that was good! I needed to be scared for the scene.” A thrill-seeker by nature, Winter, 31, grew up in Stockholm with dreams of…
