I write stuff. A lot of it is about cars and motorcycles.

WordPress Themes

One of the things I learned when I switched over to a WordPress blog is that there really isn’t much of a selection of explicitly motorcycle-themed WordPress skins available.  There’s about, uh, four I think, that I found online.

Well, now, I’ve more than doubled that number with these free WordPress motorcycle themes.

I’ve created a series of free WordPress themes for motorcycle blogs, and have tried to take care of both the sportbike guys, and the cruiser guys.  All of the themes are 2.7 compatible, and widget-ready.  There are no links to third-party sponsors or anything.  Though there is a link to me, and it would be nice of you to keep it.

Also, be advised that any of these themes can also be done for Blogger users as well.  If you like the theme, and want to use it for Blogger, let me know.

Just click on the screenshot previews below to download the ZIP file containing the theme.

WordPress 3.x themes

These themes are all updated to work with WordPress v3.0 and above.

 

Moto 2012

moto2012

This is a widescreen, readable theme with lots of whitespace.

Clean Blue

cleanblue

Again, a very readable, simple theme in blue.

The Blue and the Gray

bluegray

This theme was inspired by the first studio shots ever released of the Motus MST-01 sport-tourer. It also has the vertical menu system on the sidebar, instead of the horizontal one in the header. Also, an attractive flash effect is embedded in the header banner.

Kneeslider (v2)

kneeslider

Motorcycle racing is the theme of this template.  It’s all done in Buff and Blue.  I think It’s a classy theme.

Dark Flash

darkflash

This theme has a very dark background but with lots of whitespace to make the content area readable.

Legacy themes

These themes will still work with WordPress 3.x, but they will lose some of the theme options you get with the newer version of WordPress, but didn’t exist in wordpress 2.X.

FIREBLADE

Fireblade WordPress Theme

This theme’s colors are predominantly red and gray, with a stylized pic of a CBR1000RR as the header image.

BIG GREEN

Kawasaki’s traditional color is green.  A very bright, irritating green.  But some people seem to like it so here it is, with the ZX-10R as the header.

R1

R1 Screenshot

This one is very blue.  It’s headed by a detail shot of a Yamaha R1.

MONOCHROME

Monochrome: A Free WordPress Theme

This one is done completely in grayscale–no color at all.

KNEESLIDER

Kneeslider: A free WordPress theme

Motorcycle racing is the theme of this template.  It’s all done in Buff and Blue.  I think It’s a classy theme.

BLUE RACER

Blue Racer WordPress Motorcycle Theme

Blue Racer is a light-colored blue theme, with a racing bike header.

HOG ORANGE

Hog Orange WordPress Motorcycle Theme

I certainly wouldn’t want to leave the cruiser guys out of the party.  It’s a dark, grungy theme, in the orange and black colors that are traditionally associated with a certain motorcycle manufacturer.

BURNOUT

Burnout WordPress Motorcycle theme

Burnout is a sportbike theme, with a nice pic of a ZX-14 tearing up the asphalt.  And its tires.

SEPIA CRUISER

Sepia Cruiser WordPress Motorcycle Theme

This one is a very neutral-colored, sepia-toned theme.  Front and center is the image of the Tachometer of my Sportster.  So, if you don’t ride a Harley, well, you might want to find another image to use as the header pic that doesn’t have a big ol’ bar and shield on it.

Like, maybe, this version, which is less Harley-centric.

Sepia Cruiser 2 WordPress Motorcycle Theme

HIGH SPEED

High Speed WordPress Motorcycle Theme

High speed is done in dark steel blues, topped by a ‘busa screaming down the highway.

SPORT TOURING

Sport Touring WordPress Motorcycle Theme

Sport Touring is square.  The theme is square, I mean.  Not a curve on it, and patterned squares are a central motif of this theme.  As is the FJR1300 in the header (with all badges removed, for, uh genericizing it).  Warm earth tones make this a soothing theme, in contrast to the sharp edges of the design elements.

So,  I hope you like the efforts above, and find them useful if you have a blog.
