I guess the motorcycle season is in full swing now, with better riding conditions that a week or so ago. Over here the sun is shining almost every day, but it's still cold. But I'm having daily fun on my electric motorcycle, that's for sure. Just too bad I need to travel a lot to make a living. Here are a bunch of interesting articles that I have been reading over the last week that may interest you.

Patent: Blender Not Strong Enough? Try It With A Motorcycle

Sometimes when you try to blend some fruit, your standard kitchen blender just will not cut it (pun intended). You can of course head on over to the kitchen shop and buy a bigger one, but maybe that one will not do the trick either.

So you need to go nuclear on them. At least, that is what Danny Barber must have thought. He applied for a patent, and got it granted, for a blender using a motorcycle engine.

Gulp. Talk about overkill... No matter which motorcycle engine, you can blend anything to pulp using a motorcycle engine. But to be fair, the patent is for multiple blenders working off the same single engine, a sort of a blender bar.

Motorcycle Blender

As an additional entertainment gimmick, by adding propane to the exhaust, you can get flames, which would be considered "fun". Additionally you can have handlebars to use as controller for the blender.

Must be great for a biker bar, to make smoothies for the hard core bikers. Ehh.. wait a minute. Did I really just say that?

Motorcycle Salt n Pepper Bike
Oh, this could be fun at the dinner table. Instead of "please pass the sale and pepper", it's "please ride the salt & pepper".

A cool motorcycle that holds salt and pepper. The motorcycle is made out of ceramic while the salt and pepper holders are made out of glass. The holders are in fact inside the saddlebags. Nice touch.

The whole thing is 9-1/2" x 5-1/2" x 5-3/8" big.

Patent: Keep Your Balls Cool With This Motorcycle Saddle

I don't know about you, but somehow keeping my bum and other private parts down there cool during a motorcycle ride is way below in the "must have" scale of things.

Personally, I would not even want to have that part of my body cooled down, but then again how am I? Rick Pautz thinks differently. He applied for a patent back in 2005 for a cooled air motorcycle seat.

Patent Motorcycle Cooled Seat

According to his wording:

"This cooled motorcycle seat system has provisions for directing cool air onto operators seating area to enhance seat comfort. This is electrical based without Freon that generates cooled air and subsequently forces the cooled air through and onto the motorcycle seating surface. The system draws outside air past a thermoelectric ceramic disc. This device both cools and heats the air depending on current flow direction. The cooled portion of the air is ducted through the seat into a porous media and onto the seat cover with perforated (punched) holes to allow cool air to escape. Similarly the heated by product air is exhausted downward away from operator. Only cooled air is used for this system due to inherent warm weather usage of a motorcycle. The device is controlled by a simple on/off switch which draws current from the electrical system and is mounted for easy access"

How about you? Am I being stupid (nothing wrong with that, just being me), or is this a no-no?

Videos: 5 Girls Ride One Of The Most Dangerous Roads In The World - A MUST Watch

Riding motorcycle, as we know, is not for everyone. Riding motorcycle under the most difficult and dangerous conditions is reserved for a select few. And when I say dangerous conditions, I don't mean riding downtown to another Starbucks in an unknown neighborhood. I mean roads that can easily kill you, or at the very least destroy you physically and/or mentally.

Adventure riding in dangerous part of the world is reserved for mostly men, and then even there aren't that many who will undertake such rides. But for 5 young women, it's almost unheard off (of course there are always my favorite female riders, Tiffany Coates Open link in a new window and Carla King Open link in a new window).

But that's exactly what these 5 girls, who normally live in comfort in Paris, France, did. They took an undertaking that would scare 99.99% of the biker population: they crossed world's highest and most difficult mountain range, the Himalayas (home of world's tallest mountain, Mount Everest).

The 5 girls are passionate bikers, in love with vintage motorcycles, and partaking their first real motorcycle adventure. The five girls are:

Himalayas 5 Biker Adventure Girls

Himalayas 5 Biker Adventure Girls

They were all equipped with video cameras, so they managed to capture their entire trip. After some skillful editing, they released a 3 episodes video of their incredible trip. And yes, it's free, so no need to worry about having to pay for the pleasure, or having to watch ads.

The narrating is in French, but they have thoughtfully suppled with English subtitles.

Himalayas 5 Biker Girls Adventure

These are three videos you need to sit down quietly, and take your time to watch. The first episode lasts 17 minutes, the second lasts 18 and the last one is 24 minutes. The setup is nicely done with some after-action interviews, great sceneries and amazing riding. And yes, you will see their bikes (the motorcycles are all rented Royal Enfield Bullet 500 bikes, motorcycles that can take an enormous beating and still keep going) fall, crash go down ravines, etc.

Himalayas 5 Biker Girls Adventure

It's a tribute to the girls' riding skills, adventure lust and the Royal Enfield solidity. Watching these video in the comfort of your home, you will know what hardships and live threatening adventures these girls went through. Amazing. RESPECT.

Below you will find the three episode (thanks Sasha for the tip). Have a look, you'll not be disappointed.

NOTE: The girls are now riding Triumph Bonneville motorcycles from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil into the Amazon. Guess we'll need to wait for the videos from that epic trip.
