In many parts of Russia during the winter there is not much to do. It's dark almost all day long, it's cold, and apart from drinking and some other more intimate form of physical exercise, there is not much to do. But Russian carpenter Yuri Hvtisishvili, came up with something to keep himself occupied in those long winter evenings .... he made a motorcycle.

He used a motorcycle he loved as model, the IZH-49 (a 1951 to 1958 bike which manufacturer is now part of the famous gun manufacturer concern, Kalashnikov Click here to read more about it Open Click here to read more about it link in a new window). This is what the original looks like:

IZH 49

And based on that, he made a true 1:1 replica, made totally out of wood:

Wooden IZH 49

Everything is made out of wood, including the engine and even the spokes. The detail is amazing.

So after the winter, he ended up with this incredibly detailed and amazingly build replica of the IZH-49 motorcycle. Too bad it can't ride for real, but for sure it will look great in his living room.

Wooden IZH 49

Bravo Yuri, great job, that is some serious talent you have got.

Sometimes people can make really beautiful things, and sometimes they can do that little bit more making an already beautiful object into a form of art. Russian Dmitri Goubenko is one of those people. Look at what he made:

This is a motorcycle made out of mostly wood. It is a real motorcycle, so it works. The frame and engine are obviously not made out of wood, but the rest is, and it is hand carved.

Amazing. Istvan Puskas, a 52 year old tractor driver in a small town close to Budapest, Hungary made his own motorcycle from scratch. So far nothing special, many people have done it before him.

But what makes this motorcycle special, is that it is made out of wood. Totally from wood, apart from the engine and some other important parts. Even the wheel is made out of wood, apart from the tire

CapIt logo
Italian CapIt Open CapIt in a new window, known for its tire warmers in the MotoGP racing industry (and other races), has moved to another sector that it can warm something other than motorcycle race tires.... your helmet.

It is not something I suffer from, wet helmet, but I know some people do. And I am presuming that riding your motorcycle with a damp or even wet helmet is nothing but fun.

CapIt Dry Helmet

There are therefore already a lot of products out there that will remove the humidity of your helmet, but now Capit has one as well.

Called the Dry Helmet Open Dry Helmet link in a new window, the unit sits under your helmet and gets plugged into a power socket (220V or 110V). You select warm or cool air, that then gets blown into the helmet, drying it out without sweat traces or smells.

CapIt Dry Helmet

Two colors are available, black or silver. Cost: €159.90

Here is a TV commercial from Vespa Open link in a new window India, that is nicely put together, well filmed, nice music, but the message is pretty corny and it's only at the end that you realize that the advertisement is for Vespa.


Vespa India d Do You

It doesn't bring much to the table, apart from being nice; I do get the message that you can do all sorts of fun things, including riding a Vespa, but still ... it's not worth the air time. Sorry Vespa (although I do not think Vespa India made this).

Have a look at the video below and judge yourself.

We showed you some cool KTM Open link in a new window beachwear last month, something for girls and guys (link Open link in a new window). But going to the beach is not limited to wearing KTM swimwear. There is actual fun involved, and it doesn't involve motorcycles.

Beer Cooler Bag

 
KTM Cooler Bag

When you are at the beach, particularly when it's hot, you need to hydrate. And what better than hydrating with a brewski or two. For that purpose, the Austrian motorcycle manufacturer is offering a cooler bag to keep your beers at the right temperature.

It's not electric, so your beers are not going to keep the right temperature during your day at the beach, but they will keep cool for a while. And let's face it, a warm beer is better than no beer.. right?

You can order the cooler bag from your local KTM dealer or just search on-line for part number: 3PW1474500 (hover your mouse of the part number for Amazon US price)

Power Bottle Opener

KTM Bottle Opener

And once you grab your beer bottle out of the KTM cooler bag, you will want to open it, unless you know how to open it with your teeth. So grab your KTM Power Bottle Opener, shaped like the throttle of a KTM motorcycle. Cool..

Part number: 3PW1473500  (hover your mouse of the part number for Amazon US price)

Racing Folding Chair

KTM Race Chair

And now that the cool beer is open you need to sit, relax and drink the nectar. But sitting in the sand is ... yuck. Sand gets everywhere. No, better sit in a comfortable chair, in this case a folding racing chair. There's even a holder for your beer bottle.

Now sit back and relax, you've earned it.

Part Number: 3PW1476900 (about €30)

Now you are ready for some serious beach time.

So this is how you stay dry during floods while riding your motorcycle.... Now I know... Big Grin Smiley

Staying Dry Illinois

AP News logo
A motorcyclist on a trail or off-road type of motorcycle was not troubled by the floodwaters covering Illinois Route 3, or West Main Street, in Grafton, Ill., Friday, July 11, 2014. The secret to staying dry was apparently to raise your legs and rest them on the front fender while going through the deep water. Grafton is hoping the floodwaters that cover Main Street in three places will soon start to recede. Visitors can get through town on detour flood roads but Illinois Route 100 north of Grafton has been closed by the Illinois Department of Transportation. (AP Photo/The Telegraph, John Badman)
