Harley-Davidson is introducing its 2016 motorcycles with a pretty cool TV commercial. It's called "Running with a different crowd", though the crowd still looks pretty much the same as to what I am used to seeing with Harley.

But the video itself is well done, with some great images and cool music. As for the message (each advertising should have one, because if there ain't one, why do it?), I failed to see it.

But that didn't spoil my fun. It's a nice ad, interesting and cool. Or maybe that's the message: Harley-Davidson motorcycles are interesting and cool....

What do you think? Here it is:

France: Motorways Close To Cities - Speed Limit At 90KPH

Another idea the very unpopular socialist government of France has put in place. Officially it's to limit pollution, but you can read between the lines and see what it really is all about: money.

The government is making it possible for cities to lower the motorway speed limit when the motorway passes close to a city (or even through it), from 110 kph to 90 kph. According to the Minister of Ecology this will save lives because there will be less pollution, therefore less deaths. Some 20 cities in France will be affected by this new ruling.

Autoroute Limited to 90

Which is of course not really true. Yes, there will be less pollution, but not that much (as has been seen during pollution peaks in Paris with alternate car license were only allowed to enter the city and reduced speeds). A car or motorcycle emits less pollution when going at lower speeds, but then again, the vehicle stays longer on the road and therefore emits pollution longer. So the net loss of pollution is not s much as they will have you believe.

So not much to gain ... except for money because you can guess it even before I finish writing it; new radars will be seen alongside these motorways catching motorists at the old speed.

The details of a police raid on April 16 in the remote hills of central Huambo province have been fiercely contested, sharpening the divide between the ruling MPLA and the main opposition party UNITA, who fought on opposing sides in a 27-year civil war that ended in 2002. The Angolan police said 13 "snipers" from "The Light of the World" were killed during a raid targeted at capturing the sect's rebel leader Jose Kalupeteka, a popular anti-authority preacher who says the world will end on Dec. 31.

Tucano Urbano Apron/Leg Protector For Honda Forza 125 Scooter

For those of you not living in Europe, you'll probably not have seen the many aprons on motorcycles and scooters during (especially) the winter months, but even in the summer. Aprons, also known as leg protectors, are used to keep the rider (and often also the pillion) warm and dry. The apron is strapped to the scooter/motorcycle and as a rider you just sit on your ride and pull the apron over your lower body keeping you warm and dry.

Honda recently released the Forza 125 scooter, which is proving to be a runaway sales hit, and months later, the Italian accessory manufacturer Tucano Urbano has released a special apron for the popular 125 cc scooter.

Tucano Urbano Honda Forza 125 Termoscud Apron

The Termoscud EVO sounds like an evil name, something the bad guys in a movie would use to destroy the earth, but in fact it's an apron made out of Tarpaulin and Polyamide and with inflatable air chambers on the side that avoid vacillations at higher speeds.

Obviously the apron is 100% waterproof, and has a liner that can be removed in the summer. The apron also has a pocket to store things while riding.

The price will be around €185 / UK@150 and you can get any color you want as long as it's black.
