|21 May, 2013 - On My Way Back. Guess Where I’ve Been?|
|#Funny #KTM #Netherlands - I'm hopefully heading back to home (Normandy, France). Want to guess where I have been? |
Maybe the photo will give you a hint......
|16 May, 2013 - Gone On A Trip, This Is What I’m Doing With The 1st Radar I See|
|#Funny #Radar #Pee -I'm off on a trip for a few days, back on Tuesday afternoon if everything goes well (traveling in Europe usually means things don't go as planned). I've programmed a series of articles to keep you amused and interested, so no zapping!|
The first speed radar I see will get this treatment. I wonder what kind of a fine I'd get? Probably all they can do is public urination, or would it be destruction of public property?
Anyway, see you on Tuesday, hopefully. Tonight I sleep in Paris, then it's destination-mystery....
|13 May, 2013 - Motorcycle Pussy - Part Deux|
|#Cats #Funny - Don't we all dream of pussy? Especially motorcycle-riding pussy. We've featured one pin-up already on a motorcycle, here's another delicious one:|
Maybe this one is dreaming of this:
|13 May, 2013 - Batman Helmet Too Boring? Try The Joker Helmet|
|#Helmets #Joker - If one of the Batman helmets that are out now are a bit too boring for you (who wants to be a playboy zillionaire during the day, fighting evil at night wearing a tight body suit), then how about wearing a super villain helmet?|
The Joker helmet will get you far more attention when riding your motorcycle, that's for sure. Made by an artist specializing in helmets, this one is rad. Just look at the face at the back of the helmet..............

|8 May, 2013 - China: First Chinese Big Motorcycle?|
|#China #Bigmotorcycle #Funny - Is this the first Chinese superbike? Not in terms of Ducati, MV Agusta, etc all real fast motorcycles, but in terms of big bikes. And I mean BIG bikes.|
Interesting feat though he used scrap parts to make it. He was probably copying some existing motorcycle but got the scale wrong...
|7 May, 2013 - This Made Me Smile - A Harley-Davidson Merchandising Idea|
|#Harley #Funny - When I saw this, I just had to smile. Many Harley-Davidson motorcycle riders cultivate the idea of a tough, hardcore, biker image. Mustaches (and you should see the men's moustaches), wild hair, tattoos, leather vests & chaps, scars... you name it. All for a tough biker image.|
.... and then they walk in with this Harley-Davidson Skull & Crossbones black bag. You'd expect the biker to open the bag and at the very least remove a beer bottle which they open with their teeth. Or out comes the knives, guns and brass knuckles. But no, you'd be wrong..............

|23 April, 2013 - Scare The Bejazus Out Of Anyone On The Road, Including Cops|
|#Helmets #Predator #Motorcycle - Remember the scariest sci-fi movie monster in the universe? Predator was (is) the toughest monster that humans could battle, even Alien and worse, even Arnold Schwarzenegger had a problem fighting this fighting machine (it took Arnold an atomic bomb to vanquish the monster). Predator is tough and well equipped to fight anything and anywhere.|
Well, now thanks to a Russian outfit, you can scare anyone on the road while riding your motorcycle. NLO Moto are selling Predator helmets. These helmets are custom made, so you choose what you want on them and how they will look...........

|23 April, 2013 - Growing Your Motorcycle In Size|
|#Funny #Motorcycle - Many bikers have small motorcycles. A motorcycle is a motorcycle, even small ones, but after a while you would prefer to have one that is bigger. Doesn't everyone?|
So to get a good sized motorcycle, you need to keep your bike in a warm place, lots of sunshine, put oil-fertilizer in the ground once every 3 months, and give it lots of water, every day.
In 2 years, you will have a good sized motorcycle. Or if you want a Honda Gold Wing, you will need to wait 5 years.
|22 April, 2013 - WTF? Motorcycle Hair Styles?|
|I know that fashion can be very strange, a bit like art; it's beautiful in the eyes of the beholder, while for others it looks like a dog turd. I guess it's the same with hair styling. Some may be in awe for these "motorcycle" hair styles, while other just laugh and walk away.|
But there's no doubt that it required talent and creativity to make.
|22 April, 2013 - Thailand: A New And Original Motorcycle Cleaning Service|
|#Funny #Cleaning #Elephants #Thailand - Let's face it, all those traditional motorcycle cleaning services get stale; Bikini clad girls cleaning your bike? Been there, done that. Powerwash? Check.|
But it looks like that in Thailand they've got a much more original cleaning service - Elephants.
|16 April, 2013 - Videos: Two Hyundai TV Commercials Involving Motorcycles|
|#Hyundai #Advertisement - Here are two Hyundai TV commercials which have motorcycles in them. The first one shows a motorcycle rider as... what can I say.... a big slob on a sportsbike. Since all the other vehicles in the ad are dangerous, does this mean the fat biker is dangerous?|
The second ad is from Hyundai Canada and shows an epic Mad Max-style chase between the Hyundai car and Mad Max vehicles, including a motocrosser, until they run out of fuel.
|12 April, 2013 - Finland: Putin, President of Russia, Banned For Being 1%er Biker|
|#Russia #Putin #Biker - Vladimir Putin, President Prime Minister President of Russia loves a macho challenge. The more macho he can seem on TV, the better he feels about himself. Apart from flying fighter jets, riding in tanks, doing martial arts, he loves going on a motorcycle and ripping up the streets of Moscow with his posse (see related below), the Night Wolves.|
The Night Wolves are a motorcycle club, not exactly a 1%er but neither are they a Blue Knights. And it's his belonging to this motorcycle gang that got him blacklisted...........

This doesn't take much money to make...
|10 April, 2013 - Patent: Knee Air Flow Deflector For Motorcycles|
|#Patent #Funny - Just the patent we've patiently been waiting for all these years. Back in 2008 this patent was filed and adjusted in 2009. The patent has one reason for being, and that is for deflecting air flows that magically hit you in the face.|
According to the patent holder, Jerry H Biglake, air flows from the motorcycle's front wheel and than upwards via the knees of the rider, hitting you squarely in the face.
At least, that is what he supposes. What Jerry proposes is to mount a deflector on the biker's knees that will deflect the airflow coming from the front wheels...........

|Roof, heating, mini-fridge.... it all points to some luxury car, not a motorcycle. |

|28 March, 2013 - India: Cardboard Police To Calm Drivers Down|
|#Police #Fake - Although it's not an original idea, it still works. The authorities in the Indian city of Bangalore have placed a life-sized cardboard cutout of a police officer at a busy intersection.|
According to the reports, Indian drivers, both cars and motorcycles, are notoriously bad behaved, unless they know there's a cop watching them. So the authorities inspired by North American and European efforts installed 3 cardboard cops...........

|25 March, 2013 - 40 "Gas Stations" From Around The World|
|In many parts of the world you can expect a certain standard when riding up with your motorcycle to fuel up. Gas stations are gas stations right? I mean, what's the difference between one or another; maybe the shop, or self-service, the brand. Maybe the gas station operator is better than the next one, cleaning the floor more regularly, friendly. |
But if you travel around the world, you'll be amazed how gas stations differ. Many RTW motorcycle riders have found themselves in front of one of these "gas stations", but as the saying goes "any port in a storm". When you need to fill up your motorcycle, you need to fill up. Even when the gas station looks like one of these....
Here are 40 photos of gas stations from around the world, and I use the word gas station loosely.

|14 February, 2013 - Video: Tucano Urbano "Hot Or Not" Viral Video Part 3|
|Italian accessories manufacturer Tucano Urbano have released last month part 3 of their "funny" viral video entitled "Hot or Not". Tucano Urbano are known for their clothing and their motorcycle/scooter aprons, allowing bikers to stay warm during the harsh winters.|
In these three part videos called "Hot or Not" they show you what can happen if you are "hot" or not, in other words, if you want a good s.e.x. life, better use their product to stay warm.
As advertisements go, it's okay, not hilarious, but funny nevertheless, particularly this 3rd instalment (look at the senior citizens having a go at it...).

|21 January, 2013 - 15 Bikers Sleeping On Their Motorcycles and Scooters - Part 2|
|I've already mention in Part 1, that I have great admiration for anyone who can sleep anywhere, especially on a motorcycle. Motorcycles or scooters aren't meant for sleeping and are as uncomfortable as can be, but still these people manage to sleep. Amazing.|
I guess if you're tired (or drunk) enough, you can sleep anywhere, but I know I can't. If I don't have a good bed, then I do not sleep. It's that simple. If you can, kudos to you.
So here are 15 photos of bikers asleep on their ride, though some more comfortably than others.

|17 January, 2013 - Using Your Scooter As Toilet|
|Last year we've seen a motorcycle that runs on a toilet's "product" on the internet. We've also seen toilets that have motorcycle logos. But how about motorcycles, or in this case scooters, that ARE toilets.|

|21 December, 2012 - Video: TomTom Goes Viral|
|Our favorite Dutch GPS manufacturer (in fact, there are no other Dutch GPS makers), TomTom, have made a viral video. But just read that line again. It's a "viral" video, a video about viral videos. In fact, it's a video taking off viral videos... in a funny way.|
You'll get to see many of the very popular viral videos shown on the internet, including the "Press For Drama" video. Nope, there are no motorcycles in this video, but since they provide GPSs for motorcycles, and it's funny enough to become viral, I've decided to show it (also I had nothing else to show).
So have a look at the viral video of viral videos.

Is this what has become of the rest of us? Quietly riding our motorcycles, and then BAMMMMM gone forever?
Oh... if you are wondering what the strange symbol is, where I normally put a country flag, it's the Japanese symbol for heaven...

We've seen handy gifts, funny gifts or just plain gifts. Gifts can be in any price range, from several cents to mega dollars.
But in all these gifts, this is the one gift every motorcycle riders needs to have. You should not be allowed to escape this one.... it's not only a perfect gift to give to a biker, but it's also the ideal gift to get (even if you get it for yourself). And what is the gift???..........

|Since we're in the Christmas gift giving spirit, racking our brains to find interesting gifts to give, or to receive, how about this "gift" for the man who has everything.... except this:|
WD-40 is a miracle product for motorcycle riders, so why not a good old fashion perfume and aftershave in our favorite scent...
|14 December, 2012 - France: This Guy Is Going To Fail His Motorcycle Exam, For Sure|
|A lot of motorcycle riders speed, I'm one of them, though not always on purpose. From experience, there are three instances when you shouldn't speed:|
1. When there are cops around
2. When you're doing your motorcycle exam
3. When you are training for your motorcycle exam
A young guy in Beauvais, France missed points #1 and #3, and therefore will not get the chance to try point #2. He was caught riding his motorcycle at 150 kph on a 100 kph road, ON HIS DRIVING-SCHOOL Motorcycle...........

|11 December, 2012 - Videos: Tucano Urbano - Are You Hot Or Not|
|Two funny and sexy viral videos from Italian accessories manufacturer Tucano Urbano. They probably would be considered NOT Safe For Work in the USA, but they are pretty funny nevertheless, and yes, a tad sexist.|
Tucano Urbano are mostly known for their very warm clothing and aprons, known to keep you warm on your motorcycle or scooter.
Warning: If you are easily offended by scantly clad ladies, don't watch the videos.
|6 December, 2012 - Video: Motorcycles and Sexual Positions - Moto Kama Sutra|
|In a very well done, even at times very funny, video take on the Kama Sutra and motorcycles. In other words in this Russian video, you get to see "What if a motorcycle was a sexual position?". You get to see all types of motorcycles and their sexual position explained. Don't worry, there's no talking, so you'll not need to translate the Russian.|
Don't worry, the video is SFW, except your colleagues might be bothered with your laughing. I love the Tourer Motorcycle position....
Have a look, and don't forget to laugh.
|5 December, 2012 - Video: Canadian PSA - Texting While Driving|
|Here's a very good PSA from the Canadian government. It's an educational TV commercial that shows why people didn't text while driving in the "old days".|
The message is quite clear, and the French words pronounced during the ad are "Before, we didn't write text messages while driving.... there was probably a good reason".
|5 December, 2012 - Sidi New Motocross Boot For Women|
|Motocross boots are very unladylike. Big, bulky, nothing feminine about them. But if you're going offroad, you have little choice... until now.|
Sidi have released for Christmas the Female Motocross boots. Now you too can ride your motorcycle offroad and still have a female "look"...
|4 December, 2012 - Ad: Volkswagen - Better Scratch A Cop Car Than Bikers?|
|When parking your car, would you rather scratch a police car or bump into a motorcycle belonging to a biker gang (my choice would be none of the above)? That's a question that should be asked in a philosophy exam. |
Volkswagen used the image of the above question in their print advertisement in Australia.
|4 December, 2012 - OMG! This Guy Is So Unsafe!|
|OMG, what is this guy thinking. Can't he see he's riding his motorcycle so unsafe? I mean... is he blind or what? His center stand is way too low to be safe. It's scraping the road. That is a serious error, and could be very dangerous.|
He should be paying more attention. Motorcycles are dangerous, and riding with center stands scraping the ground is not the way to do it.
|30 November, 2012 - Video: Deodorant For Motorcycle Riders?|
|OMG! How far will companies go to advertise their products using motorcycle? I mean, using a motorcycle sound for spraying yourself with Instinct deodorant....|
Okay, you get to win a Ninja 250R motorcycle, but still....every press of the deodorant will result in a motorcycle revving up...
|14 November, 2012 - After My Eicma Scare, Taking A Few Days Easy|
|After the disastrous Eicma motorcycle exhibition, at least for me, I've been taking it very easy. I've been sleeping 16 hours per day and slowly I'm feeling stronger.|
So I've decided to stay away from my computers and cameras for the next few days, giving my body a deserved and welcome break.
I'll be back somewhere next week. Too bad the weather got freezing cold, if not I would have gone out for a relaxing ride.
PS... never party with cardiologists.

|Smartphones are great, even on a motorcycle. Not only can you stay in touch with your loved ones, but they'll even tell you where and how to go. The problem however is that they are not waterproof, not even rainproof.|
So if you're riding your motorcycle, and using a smartphone to do your navigation, you'll need to protect it from rain. Obviously you can purchase one of these expensive rainproof covers. Or you can do what this biker did....;

|7 September, 2012 - Want To Be Really Heard On Your Motorcycle? REALLY HEARD?|
|Horns on motorcycles are pretty lame. Usually they sound like a duck with a severe flu. Third party horns are a plenty, one we have even tested (link). That was a 140 dB horn, and very useful with cars and trucks that can't really hear you over the noise inside their vehicle.|
But you can go better. Much better if we look at what this person has accomplished (on a bicycle mind you). The only problem is that you'll need to sacrifice some space on your motorcycle.
Why?? Because we're talking about installing a real train horn...all 178 dB.....

|3 September, 2012 - Italy: Speed Camera Kidnapped and Ransomed - Hilarious|
|This is so weird & wonderful it got to be true. Last week in Italy, a group calling itself Comitato No Velox (which is Italian for No Speed Camera Committee) has decided that enough is enough, and went out and kidnapped a speed camera.|
They penetrated a police storage facility and took the speed camera, valued at US$25,000, but to make matters worse (or better, depending on your point of view), sent a ransom note to the police. The ransom note, in true kidnapper style, was made out of letters cut from newspapers. The note said "RETURN THE MONEY".......

|30 July, 2012 - How To Turn A Moped Into A Motorcycle - Video|
|It's incredible what some people can do if they put their minds and hands to it..... Somewhere in Turkey, some enterprising lads took a moped, you know - one of those 50cc-2-stroke-pedal-to-go-faster-louder-than-real-bikes vehicles, and turned it into a motorcycle! |
What they did was bolt on three other 50cc engines, making it a 200cc motorcycle. The job is impressive to say the least.
In the video below, you'll see, and more importantly hear, the 4x50cc mopcycle run some static tests, and then some poor fellow, without ATGATT, ride off into the sunset.
The sound the engine(s) provide is impressive, as is the speed the thing accelerates.

|11 July, 2012 - Patents: Guy Patents Training Wheels For Motorcycles|
|That riding a motorcycle is not easy is an understatement. You need to learn how to ride, just as you needed to learn how to ride a bicycle. But once you got the hang out of riding a bicycle, you no longer needed training wheels. Right? |
Well, not according to Hiyun Yun. He filed a patent for collapsable training wheels for motorcycles, although he doesn't call them training wheels, he calls it a Safety Device for Motorcycles.

|Many of us bikers love dogs, and wouldn't think of going somewhere without the pooch. But often it's not easy, since they don't always sit still behind you. So you end up buying a trailer for your motorcycle. But trailers are boring.... unless you make this ultimate motorcycle dog-house-trailer.|
|3 July, 2012 - France: Man Ride Motorcycle Into Hospital - Really|
|The kind of stuff you'd expect in a blockbuster comedy movie coming from Hollywood. A 42 year old man went on his 125cc motorcycle to the Hospital of Montbard. Instead of getting off and walking the last meters, he kept on riding, right into the hospital. There, he kept riding through the corridors, narrowly missing hitting people on his motorcycle. He spent quite some time riding around inside the hospital......

|25 June, 2012 - Motorcycles, Women and Shoes - 20 Photos|
|It's one of the many mysteries that surround women; their obsession for shoes. Most men don't get it. A guy can have sneakers, a pair of motorcycle boots and one good pair of dress shoes, and that's it. But many women have more shoes than what we guys have in underwear. It's not a problem; it's just a mystery. |
But what is more of a mystery is when these ladies get on a motorcycle. Quite a lot of them ride in shoes that are anything but adequate for riding. HOW DO THEY DO IT? How can they ride with high, stiletto, heels? Do they not break off? And what about scuff marks?
What happens when you stop and put your foot down? Isn't it unstable like hell? How many of you women have broken your shoes when riding?
So many questions.... anyway, here are 20 photos of women riding motorcycles and their shoes.
|19 June, 2012 - Ad: Meltin’Pot - Wet Dream Job|
|If ever there was the wet dream job for a guy, there's this one. It's a pizza delivery on a motorcycle, delivering pizzas to a bunch of, barely dressed, women in windows. Would this by any chance be in Amsterdam??? |
The print advertisement is from Peltin'Pot, a clothing & footwear company

|19 June, 2012 - Greece: Dressing The Part On A Motorcycle|
|Greece may be in the slums at this moment, but at least in soccer (or as we say in the civilized world, football), Greece is still playing its part. Not only that, they'll be facing off against the country that has been giving them the most problems, Germany. |
Imagine riding around with an ancient Greek warrior helmet to celebrate this event. Cool.
|18 June, 2012 - MotoGP: Now I understand The Incredible Angles|
|At times when I'm watching the MotoGP races, I wonder how the racers can stay up with those incredible angles. They are often gravity defying, but seeing this photo, now I understand. |
They are just held up by a wire, something you don't see on TV. And when a rider falls, it's just that the wire snapped...
|14 June, 2012 - The Difference Between ABS On and ABS Off|
|A lot of ink has been dripping, pixels burning, on the debate whether ABS on a motorcycle is a good thing, or a bad thing. With more and more countries making ABS mandatory, it's become a burning issue. |
Until now.... here's photo-proof positive what the difference is between braking with and without ABS.
|6 June, 2012 - Indonesia: Cornered Car Thief Steals Police Motorcycle|
|There's going to be a lot of egg, or more probably rice-sate, on the faces of the local LEO. |
They corner a car thief, but then the guy steals a police motorcycle, and now they've lost a) the thief, and b) their own motorcycle.
|16 May, 2012 - Nolan: Houston We Do Not Have A Problem|

|It's the first of May, labor day, the day to remember to work .. or something like that. So I decided to take the day off and clean my motorcycles. I think I got a spot of mud on them, and need to remove it. |
|30 April, 2012 - Wow! Was That A Rainy Weekend Or What?|
|Last weekend I went to the 1st annual Balneo Cafe racer event organized in Dieppe, a stone throw from where I live, but the rain made it very difficult. My trusty BMW motorcycle was having problems coping with the tropical downpour. |
More about the Cafe Racer event in the next article, but this is what I saw on the way back:

|19 April, 2012 - Stuff No Self-Respecting Motorcycle Rider Can Do Without|
|We know all about the primary stuff we need as a motorcycle rider, a motorcycle, helmet, jacket, gloves, boots, trousers, maybe a skull cap, etc. But there are much more important stuff needed to be a proper biker. |
Luckily there's a web site that offers all the real stuff you need. Kalecauto has the best products to be an effective biker. Look at some of their product:

|19 April, 2012 - Doing Something About Electric Scoooter Silence - Domino Pizza Way|
|Electric motorcycles and scooters are great... they use no gasoline, they don't pollute, and they run quite silently. And that can be a problem. With pedestrians used to traffic that makes noise, even the most quiet car makes a lot of noise when driving, an electric motorcycle or scooter can become dangerous. Pedestrians can walk onto the road thinking there is no traffic, cyclists can get hurt when an electric vehicle overtakes them, etc. |
Authorities all over the world have been contemplating laws that will ensure that an electric vehicle makes some noise. But their search is over. Domino Pizzas in The Netherlands has come up with the best solution. Their electric pizza delivery scooters criss-cross the Dutch cities delivering piping hot pizzas, and Domino decided to not only make them safer for the rest of the traffic, but also do a bit of advertising at the same time.
If you look, and listen, to the video below, you'll hear the electric scooter riding through traffic, while the scooter "talks" to the cyclists and pedestrians. What it is saying is "Domino's Domino's Domino's Yummy Yummy Yummy Domino's Domino's Domino's Domino Pizzas".
So this way the traffic is safe, AND they advertise their pizzas at the same time. I just wouldn't want to be one of their delivery boys; having to hear the recording the whole time will make me want to ride into one of the many canals of Amsterdam.

|10 April, 2012 - Ad: Harley-Davidson Riders Use Blow-Up Dolls ?|
|Funny. Turkish PR firm, Big, made this print advertisement which is funny, and well thought out, especially if you look at the text. |
The Harley-Davidson ad reads "Nothing can replace the real one. Use original Harley-Davidson parts". Smart if you look at the pillion passenger...

... something this bloke really know how to do...
|2 April, 2012 - Some Of The More Elaborate April Fool Jokes Played|
|Several pranks were played on the internet by some motorcycle sites. Many were very transparent, some were well thought out, one was excellent. |
Here are four of the more elaborate jokes played on the net.
|30 March, 2012 - Once A Mod, Always A Mod|
|I guess it's a case of once you're a mod, you're always a mod. |
Either that or the guy is a blind as a bat...
|27 March, 2012 - Ad: Ducati - Virgin?|
|Nice suggestive print advertisement for Ducati motorcycles. |
I guess virgins are overrated, even for motorcycles....
|6 March, 2012 - Ad: Finally A Motorcycles Faster Than The Roadrunner - Beeep|
|If this Brazilian print advertisement is to be believed, finally there's a motorcycle faster than the famous roadrunner (you know, beeep, beeep). And the motorcycle is a Honda CBR1000RR. |
The ad, made by 9mm Propaganda Florianopolis in Brazil, is for Honda Dorvalino, a local dealer.
Not bad ad for a dealer. But in all honesty, nothing is faster than the roadrunner, nothing.
|5 March, 2012 - Is This A Guy Motorcycle?|
|It's either a woman's motorcycle, or of a guy who is confident in his manhood....or whatever. |

If things go the way planned, I should be back on Tuesday afternoon.
|23 February, 2012 - Video: Live By It - Benin version|
|You all probably remember the viral TV commercial from Harley-Davidson some 5 years ago called "Live By It"? |
Here's another version, but this time from Benin (in Africa) with the same words but different images. If you haven't seen the original, see that first before seeing this one.
We'll see how long this video will last before Harley pulls the plug on it...
|20 February, 2012 - The Most Stunning And Sexy Yamaha Motorcycle Babe|
|I don't frequently post photos of the pretty and often sexy ladies on motorcycles, apart from the motorcycle exhibitions. |
But this photos of a very pretty, and very sexy, Yamaha girl just had to be posted.... no offense to women meant, but she's just to sexy not to post.
|20 February, 2012 - 21 Bikers Sleeping On Their Motorcycle|
|I really do not know how they do it. I can't even sleep in a strange bed in a hotel, or on a first class seat in an airplane (like that will ever happen), but some people can sleep anywhere, even on a motorcycle or scooter. |
I know that many Iron Butt rider sleep on their motorcycles during the rally, and maybe if you are exhausted enough, you can sleep even on a horse; I just can't...
Here are 21 photos of beings who however possible are managing to sleep on their ride. The only one can I understand is the last one....
|10 February, 2012 - Who Cares About The Snow and Ice On A Motorcycle?|
|Just because there's snow and ice, doesn't mean you can't go and have fun on your motorcycle. And it doesn't even have to be an off-road bike with big studded tires, just some spikes in your tires will do the trick (just look at the spikes on the tires...). |
|7 February, 2012 - Potty Motorcycle - Go On The Go|
|You've probably all seen the Japanese motorcycle using our natural excrement (read shit) as fuel. |
Now it looks like the Chinese are trying to replicate it, but in their own unique fashion.
|1 February, 2012 - Video: Washington Lottery - Crazy Ideas|
|Funny, if not wacko. This is a TV commercial for the Washington Lottery, and has as theme, what crazy thing would I do if I won the lottery. |
In this case, the winner is going on a motorcycle ride with his biker friends. Just watch...
|31 January, 2012 - Ads: Harley-Davidson - Hand-picked|
|I really don't understand the Harley-Davidson advertisement philosophy. Their main thread is rebellion; being a bad person. So does that mean that Harley motorcycle riders are all bad people? Because that's what their ads say. |
Here are three print ads from McCann-Erickson in the UK. The first one is actually pretty good, the other two expand on the main theme and the message gets lost.
|26 January, 2012 - WTF of the Week: DIY Motorcycle Fairing|
|You're desperate, dumb, and/or just plain stupid to try this... but then if you look at the rest of the motorcycle you got to wonder about the mental health of its owner. |
But then a motorcycle is a motorcycle...
|25 January, 2012 - Video: Shit Bikers Say|
|As motorcycle riders, we tend to say a lot. Instead of just riding, we like talking about our motorcycles, and often we say, as the French say, "N'importe quoi", meaning "whatever". It's true, we do say a lot of things, and this video proves it. |
You'll recognize many of the things said in the video, that's for sure. Starring Bill Dwyer from AtlasRider.
Have a look, and see how many of the things said in the video are said by you.... I dare you.
|23 January, 2012 - Jorge Lorenzo First Motorcycle Lesson|
|As we had already reported, former World Champion MotoGP racing has started getting his motorcycle license, allowing him to ride a motorcycle. He already passed his Spanish theory test, and now needs to spend a few hours, officially, with an instructor. After he has done his mandatory minimum hours of riding lessons, he will need to "prove" himself in the exams. |
I bet there's not a large number of examiners who are queueing up to go out for a ride with Jorge to see if he is able to ride a motorcycle.
|12 January, 2012 - Video: 70s Esso Gas Station Commercial|
|There used to be a time, many decades ago, that you could actually get service in a gas station:- service and a smile. This 70's TV commercial reminds me of those good old days... |
It's an advertisement from Esso, and it's short, but sweet. It'll make you smile...
|11 January, 2012 - Signs That Winter Is Upon Us|
|When you look out your window and see your motorcycle like this, you know you're in the middle of winter. |
Lucky for me, all I see is sun, birds and double digits on the thermometer.
|10 January, 2012 - Jorge Lorenzo Allowed To Ride Motorcycles, Legally|
|Believe it or not, former MotoGP World Champion Jorge Lorenzo just passed his motorcycle riding theory test, needed to get his motorcycle license. This will allow him to ride a motorcycle on the streets. |
Now...... which instructor is going to teach Jorge how to take a curve with his motorcycles, and which examiner is crazy enough to "test" him if he knows how to drive???
|10 January, 2012 - Showing Your Faith On A Motorcycle|
|Some people like to show their faith while riding their motorcycle. It's like a badge of honor, and it can't hurt, since it might just protect you from unforeseen problems. You never know, just hedge your bets. |
But I think this guy has taken it a step too far... don't you?
|9 January, 2012 - Dakar2012: The Easy Way Of Racing A Motorcycle|
|You'll probably all seen the TV images of motorcycle racers in the famous Dakar rally, laboring through the dunes, stranded in mud, broken down alongside the road while trucks are thundering past at an alarming speed. |
It's all part of the fun of racing your motorcycle in the Dakar rally. Until this photo......
This clearly shows there's another way of taking part in the Dakar with a motorcycle...
|2 January, 2012 - Dakar2012: Cyril Despres Rolls Out The Big Guns - Literally|
|It looks like the Dakar 2012 edition is heated up already. With the number of wins between arch-rivals Marc Coma and Cyril Despres at 3 - 3, both motorcycle riders are going to be at their best to win this year's race.
Cyril Despres has decided with team mate Ruban Faria to win this year, and he's brought in the big guns, and I mean BIG GUNS.
This should give Marc Coma something to think about....|
|27 December, 2011 - Greece: Rain, Motorcycles, Umbrellas|
|You see this often enough on news stories coming through the internet.... people riding in rain on a motorcycle holding an umbrella. You ask yourself how the heck they do it? |
Or is this a 1 second photo, because in the 2nd second, either the umbrella has blown away, or the pillion has, or both.
|26 December, 2011 - Video: Why Riding A Self Made Motorcycle Is Not A Good Idea|
|Tinkering on your motorcycle is one thing, but making one is another. Just have a look at this video, and you'll see why not. |
Or maybe, this should be entitled "why riding off road with a street motorcycle is not a good idea".
|20 December, 2011 - Video: MTV - Sex Is No Accident - Vespa|
|A kind of funny TV commercial from MTV, warning people that sex is no accident, and to wear a condom. |
To make their point, they've used a nice animation of a girl on a Vespa scooter, who by accident gets in to a "sex" situation. The ads were made by the Gray agency in Germany.
Dream on if you think it'll happen to you....
|20 December, 2011 - If You Are Reading This, I Have Not Made It Home (Yet)|
|If you are reading this, it means I have not made it home/office yet. It probably means (I hope) that I have been detained in traffic, and am racing as hard as I can on my motorcycle to get back. |
If not, I'm in jail somewhere....
|20 December, 2011 - Heading Back To The Paper Mountain - HELP|
|If things went right, I should be heading back to the office, to face my paper mountain which accumulates when you're gone. Normal programming will resume shortly. |
If not, I'm stuck somewhere in the world in a God-forsaken place.
|16 December, 2011 - Motorcycles And Their Computers|
|Technology has become a big part of motorcycles, they are used to control everything except the steering part (and that'll happen one of these days). They control engine, ABS, suspension, windscreen, etc. |
Thankfully, the computer technology has shrunk enough to make them not noticeable. But one manufacturer is struggling to keep the computer technology down to a manageable size....
|16 December, 2011 - Xmas2011: Motorcycle Slippers|
|You're going to look soooo cute wearing these slippers in the morning. While sitting at the table, drinking your coffee, you can be racing these two motorcycles with your feet. |
The outside is made out of polyester, the inside is made out of cotton.
|16 December, 2011 - You Know Those RVs Towing A Car...?|
|You know those RV vehicles that, part from being humongous, are also pulling a car? |
Well, the motorcycle world has its equivalent, the Honda Gold Wing and motorcycle trailer. Only thing missing on the Gold Wing is the bathtub.
|15 December, 2011 - Xmas2011: Ugly Goggles|
|Sometimes ugly can be pretty, or at the very least, useful. This is a case of ugly but useful. |
The Ugly Goggles are incredibly ugly, but one thing is for sure; they'll hold the wind from your eyes.
The goggles are foam lined, so soft for your face, and they have air vents preventing the goggle from fogging up.
|14 December, 2011 - WTF Of The Week: Pope Fined For Not Wearing Seat Belt - In Popemobile?|
|So weird it's got to be true.... |
The German pope is being sued by a German resident for driving around Germany in his popemobile WITHOUT wearing a seat belt.
This could result in a fine of €2500, but luckily for the pope, the lawsuit got thrown out.
Maybe he should try riding around on his Ducati motorcycle without a helmet..
|13 December, 2011 - Gone On Assignment - Car and Motorcycle|
|Sorry folks, but I got a rush job for a magazine, and have had to leave in a hurry, back hopefully on next Tuesday. I've quickly assembled some articles to keep you busy, but not as much as I normally post. |
Since I'll be out of touch with the internet most of the time, I'll not be able to check new stories coming in.....
|12 December, 2011 - My Birthday Today - Gone Out With The Dogs|
|It's my birthday today (Happy Birthday To Me, Happy Birthday To Me), and decided to go out for a ride with the dogs today.... |
You can send your presents to ...
|7 December, 2011 - WTF of the Week: Motorcycle Cage Patent|
|Sometimes you got to think what people want, but sometimes you over think. That's the case with this recently filed patent.... |
It's a patent for a cage around a motorcycle! The cage "protects" the rider, and to ensure that the rider stays in the cage, she/he is attached via a harness (shoulder and seat).
I think you'd be better off in a real cage...
|2 December, 2011 - No Shame Whatsoever|
|This guy has no shame whatsoever.... |
..... but then he's probably carrying a .357 on his pink scooter...
|30 November, 2011 - On My Way Back, Guess What I Picked Up?|
|If everything went according to plans, I should be heading back to the office from Paris, after the Paris Motorcycle Exhibition 2011. |
As usual, you get loaded down with press packs from any self-respecting motorcycle manufacturer, so I guess I should be something like this:
|29 November, 2011 - WTF of the Week: Moped Apehanger|
|I can't imagine anyone making this on purpose. I rather assume it's a college prank gone too far. Why would anyone transform a motorcycle, let alone a moped, into this.... |
Just look at it.... see the wicker basket???
|25 November, 2011 - Video: Hemorrhoids? Sperti Helps On A Motorcycle|
|Some PR agencies are more creative than others. The KOEN agency in The Netherlands wanted to show a good case of what hemorrhoids can do, so they hired some poor blokes to ride down Amsterdam on their motorcycle. |
They were told to ride standing up, and on the back was a big sign, saying "Hemorrhoids? You don't want to sit with that. Sperti Helps".
Funny, unless you're the motorcycle rider....
|23 November, 2011 - WTF of the Week: Motorcycle Riding Tent|
|You've got to see this to believe it. It's no longer the WTF of the Week, but of the Century: |
It's difficult to explain what it is, but in short, it's a tent for motorcycle used for riding, not camping. It's clamped onto the motorcycle or scooter (thank you for not having any accidents), there's place for two, and it serves as toilet for on the road.
Here's the video.... you got to see it to believe it...
|22 November, 2011 - Video: Volkswagen - Easy Rider|
|It's strange that for a company like Volkswagen, that has as CEO a true-blooded biker, that many of their TV commercials make fun of the motorcycle riding public... |
Here's one such TV advertisement from Volkswagen South Africa. It really makes fun of bikers, but I have to say, I got several giggles out of it. Funny.
The ad is for the Volkswagen Jetta.
|18 November, 2011 - What To Do When Your Motorcycle Breaks Down|
|One biker who understands that your motorcycle can run into problems, and so will you. |
A spare motorcycle for the main motorcycle. That is anticipating...
|15 November, 2011 - Video: Lambretta Ad - Anti Vespa|
|Hehe... a funny anti-Vespa scooter commercial from Lambretta. It's Italian, from the Life, Longari & Loman PR agency in Italy. |
The advertisement squashes Vespa, literally.
|14 November, 2011 - Eicma 2011: And The Prize For The Worst Product..|
|Eicma is an incredible motorcycle exhibition, with 1000's of products on display. It's motorcycle porn to an extreme, and you could stay there for days and still not see all the products. |
Many products are incredible, and would be great at home, but you'll also find some products that you go .. gulp... Here's one.
|10 November, 2011 - On My Way Back To Office - What Is It Going To Look Like?|
|I should be heading back to the office at this moment, after a hectic EICMA motorcycle exhibition. Usually my already untidy office is going to be even more untidy. |
I should be working over the next few days on more motorcycles I saw at EICMA, and will post them when they're done. Patience...
|9 November, 2011 - Eicma 2011: How To Demonstrate An Airbag Jacket|
|Here at Eicma, you see many manufacturers trying to sell their stuff. Motorcycles are easy to sell, but there's stuff out there that you need to push, and I really mean push... |
One of the items that you need to convince people with a real demo, is the Airbag jacket. Usually what happens is that they put one on, and then pull the cord (if it's a wired jacket).
The jacket inflates in nano-seconds, and you've become the Michelin man. But this demonstrator went one step further.
Once he had pulled the cord that inflated the jacket, he took a baseball bat, and slammed it with all his force against the unsuspecting man's back. The man did not even flinch.... quite powerful for a demo. I jsut hope for the demonstrator's sake, someone doesn't take the bat away and hits him....
|2 November, 2011 - Ad: Hell’s Angels Are Pussies|
|Now here's a print advertisement that will get attention, good or bad. The ad is for Essilor, a French optician/manufacturer, and the idea is to show that the glasses the poor guy is wearing is unbreakable. |
Of course, his face and body aren't. I somehow don't think you'll see real people wearing such a t-shirt....
|31 October, 2011 - X-Rated Ad For Suzuki Motorcycles|
|I saw this funny, X-rated, print advertisement in a French motorcycle magazine for the Suzuki Gladius. |
The tag line reads "Position Number 1: Take advantage of your agility to surprise the four cylinders"....
|27 October, 2011 - Indian Cricket Team Has Run Out Of Money|
|Well, it sure looks like it. The Indian national cricket team can't afford multiple motorcycles, they need to three-up the team on their motorcycles. |
That's pretty bad...
|24 October, 2011 - Video: Toyota Hilux Australia- Wild Boar Motorcyclists?|
|Toyota Australia have a couple of pretty well done TV commercials for their Hilux pickup truck. Since Top Gear has shown that the car is indestructible, that's more or less what they show. |
In one of the advertisements, they show a motorcycle rider... but the biker is a flame-throwing wild boar, with body armor and a rocket launcher... nice image!

|12 October, 2011 - Video: Funny and Sexy Dutch Motorcycle Insurance Ad|
|Pretty funny, and sexy (for both guys and gals) TV commercial for Central Beheer Insurance company in The Netherlands. |
It's a pretty old and often done theme, but nevertheless, it remains funny, specially with some sexy shots. The kind of pretty girls you meet on your motorcycle...
|7 October, 2011 - Video: Motorcycle Superman|
|Incredible how some people ride their motorcycles, or in this case mopeds. This video is of a souped up 50cc (very noisy) doing an enormous speed on the motorway, and one of the reasons the guy is going so fast is because he's gotten as aerodynamic as possible; he's horizontal! |
Incredible but stupid!
|22 September, 2011 - DIY Scooter/Motorcycle #7465|
|This is what a scooter/motorcycle will look like if I tried to make one from scratch. |
I'd probably forget to put in an engine...
|9 September, 2011 - Ad: Funny & Well Done - Specsavers and Vespa|
|Someone at the Smart ad agency in Australia was being creative. They made this life-size advertisement for their customer, SpecSavers (opticians). |
They have a sense of humor those Australians. I'm sure it will have caused a few people to see if that was really a hole made by a Vespa scooter...
|7 September, 2011 - The Real Reason Why Valentino Rossi Is Not So Fast|
|A photographer found out why Valentino is not performing so well on his Ducati, and it's got nothing to do with the motorcycle. |
It's just that he's carrying a lot of weight behind him...
|2 September, 2011 - Edible Motorcycle - Asia|
|We've seen motorcycle made out of metal, but also from wood, straw, butter, ice ... and now we've got a motorcycle made out of lobster shells. It's going to be a bit smelly, specially after a while, but then most food will do that? |
The lobster motorcycle was made by a Taiwanese Chef at a food making seminar in China. What will they think of next?

|You like the hit TV series "Sons of Anarchy"? Well get the tattoo.... show it off to your motorcycle friends, intimidate little old ladies on the street. |
The best part, it's not permanent.
|31 August, 2011 - Navigating For Motorcycle Pillions 101|
|Reading a map while riding your motorcycle is impossible, at least for the biker. Many of us have turned to technology to help us; God save the GPS. But there are others who do not believe in the GPS and prefer the good old paper map. |
So if you've got a paper map, and a pillion, here's one way of using your pillion as GPS. All you need to do is train the pillion to say "In 300 yards, turn left".
|24 August, 2011 - Think You Know All About Motorcycles? Honor Yourself!|
|If you think you know it all about motorcycles, why not honor yourself with a degree? |
Since no one will give you a degree in Motorcycles, even if you are an expert, you might as well get one yourself.
It'll look great on your garage wall...

|18 August, 2011 - The Lightest Race Motorcycle Ever?|
|Have the engineers finally been able to reduce the motorcycle components to an absolute minimum, resulting only in tires and a bit of fairing. That would make motorcycle so light, that even a 10 bhp engine will make it race very fast. |
Is this the way electric motorcycles are going to go?
|17 August, 2011 - New Concept For Riding Naked Motorcycle|
|It takes all sorts of people to make this world a wonderful place to live in. Here's a guy in the USA who rides his motorcycle wearing nothing but a Borat-style Mankini.... |

Someone with a higher IQ, please explain...

The truck got stopped, and the driver fined. The cop got to clean up himself and his uniform.
