From all the cakes, pastries, and what have you not in the shape of a motorcycle or the manufacturer's logo, Harley wins hands down. Not one brand comes even close to the sheer number of sweet things made, nor the creativity and masterful creations I have found on the internet. Some of them should never be eaten; they are that wonderfully made - pure art...........

23 September, 2013 - Motorcycles and Cakes: Ducati - Part 2
Cake Ducati
Cake Ducati
#Ducati #Cake #Pastry - The motorcycle and cakes series, with Aprilia and BMW cakes, and Buell and Cagiva cakes, are proving to be quite a mouthful.

But the Ducati pasteries take the cake (sorry, couldn't avoid that pun). Ducati is not only a very popular motorcycle brand, but also a popular cake design example. There are so many wonderful examples of Ducati cake that I had to split it up into 3. I was getting diabetics just from watching all those luscious cakes. Here is part 2.


 


16 September, 2013 - Motorcycles and Cakes: Ducati - Part 1
Cake Ducati
Cake Ducati
#Cakes #Food #Ducati - When I started this series with Aprilia & BMW cakes, and Buell & Cagiva cakes, the number of cakes modelled after our favorite motorcycles was manageable. That was until I reached Ducati.

It would seem that Ducati is not only a very popular motorcycle brand, but also a popular cake design example. There are so many wonderful examples of Ducati cake that I had to split it up into 3. I was getting diabetics just from watching all those luscious cakes.


 


9 September, 2013 - Motorcycles and Cakes: Buell and Cagiva
Cake Buell
Cake Cagiva
#Cakes #Buell #Cagiva - Last time we showed you Aprilia and BMW motorcycle cakes. That was yummy .. mouth-watering. What more can you wish for; motorcycles and cakes - all in one package.

Here are two motorcycle brands that do not exist anymore, but are still alive in cake form (of course the real motorcycles can still be found on the road); Buell and Cagiva (although I only found one Cagiva cake, but it's a beauty).


 


2 September, 2013 - Motorcycles and Cakes: Aprilia and BMW
Cake Aprilia
Cake BMW
#Cakes #BMW #Aprilia - I have noticed that many motorcycle riders have a sweet tooth. We love eating sweet things, maybe it is because we try to stay awake as long as possible on our rides, or maybe it's just because we just love sweet things.

It is therefore no surprise to see many of us indulging in eating cakes, especially when the cakes have been made into our favorite vehicle. I have found quite a lot of cakes made into motorcycles, or the logo of the manufacturer, so many that they will not fit on one page. I will therefore be showing you brand-by-brand over time. Some cakes are works of art, some not, but I am quite sure they all taste wonderful.

Here is the first installment, Aprilia and BMW motorcycle. Just looking at the photos made my mouth water....


 


26 August, 2013 - 30 Scary Biker Face Masks
Scary Biker Face Mask
Scary Biker Face Mask
#Facemasks #Masks #Scary #Biker - Riding a motorcycle is already scary for many other road users. As a group, bikers have a bad rep; we are seen as nasty creatures. And things get even worse when we don on face masks to keep the dirt & grim out of our face, and more importantly, the cold weather.

Of course you can put on a simple face mask, or even a scarve, but that spoils the image, right? Why not put on something that will really scare old ladies driving their car to church? Let's face it, if you can look like this, would anyone bother you on the road:

So here are 29 other biker face masks that will scare even Arnold Schwarzenegger if he would come across you.


 


15 July, 2013 - The Motorcycle Manufacturer Alphabet - Repeat After Me...
Motorcycle Alphabet Poster
#Alphabet #Motorcycles #poster - Here is the motorcycle manufacturer alphabet, something I think should hang in every school in the world. Some of the logos used were old ones, since they looked better, while some logos are from manufacturers that are now defunct.

I managed to get logos for every letter of the alphabet, except one; "X".... anyone know a manufacturer starting with an "X"?

Please do not start why I used one manufacturer and not another, I just put whoever's logo fit the nicest.


 


8 July, 2013 - 14 Motorcycles, Mirrors and Photographers - Part 2
Motorcycle Mirror Belgium
Mirror Cambodi
#Mirror #Photos #Motorcycle - Some time ago we showed you that some photos that involve motorcycles can be rather "cliche", in other words, "been there, done that". One such photo involves taking a shot of the motorcycle's mirror with the mirror showing you "something", like the face of the biker.

A lot of photographer do this, even the press. Here are 14 such "mirror" photos from around the world:


 


24 June, 2013 - 14 Photos Of Blown Up @ Destroyed Motorcycles - Part 5
Blown Up Motorcycle Pakistan
Blown up motorcycle Brazil
#Blowup #Motorcycles #Destroyed - This is already the 5th "episode" of motorcycles that have been at the wrong end of violence; they were blown up, set of fire or just destroyed, often beyond recognition.

All the motorcycles that were destroyed were victims to enormous violence, something that should not be tolerated with these innocent vehicles. So here are 14 photos of, often very badly, damaged motorcycles.

Warning: If you are any bit squeamish for the sight of dead motorcycles, for crying out loud, DO NOT LOOK AT THESE PICTURES.


 


25 March, 2013 - 40 "Gas Stations" From Around The World
Gas Station Benin
Gas Station Bolivia
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.


 


11 March, 2013 - 41 Firefighting Motorcycles From Around The World (+ Videos)
Firefighter Japan Yamaha
Firefighter Malaysia Honda ST1200
#Firefighters #Firemen - Firefighters, as we all know, are heroes. They put their lives in danger to protect us and our possessions, often with disastrous consequences for the firefighters. But getting to a fire in crowded cities is not easy, even if fire trucks have priority. When there's a traffic jam, even they are stuck.

So one way of getting there fast is by motorcycle. Many countries have adopted motorcycles for their first responders. Often these motorcycles are equipped to start putting out a fire until the fire tenders arrive, not an easy task for these brave firefighters. They need to circumnavigate crowded cities on heavy motorcycles, facing first the danger of riding a heavy motorcycle in a city, then putting out a fire. Respect.

Here are 41 photos of different kind of firefighting motorcycles from around the world...........

Postage Stamp Motorcycle Ecuatorial Guinea

Part 2 of the motorcycle stamps series from around the world.

There are people who love motorcycles, and there are people who love collecting postage stamps, and believe it or not, there are people who love both.

Over the years most postal services around the world have issued stamps with motorcycles on them. Here is but a small collection of stamps, literally from around the world, with motorcycles on them. Some old, some new. ..........

I particularly like the Equatorial Guinea stamps, with drawing of all the classic motorcycle racers from years ago. Very nice.

25 February, 2013 - Motorcycle Manufacturer Smartphone Apps
Apps Zero
Apps Piaggio Multimedia Plaform
#Apps #iPhone #Android - Smartphone like Apple's popular iPhone and Google's Android have not only become popular in the general population, but also with motorcycle riders. Games, navigation, social media, knowledge base are just a few of the apps you can get for your phone. But many motorcycle manufacturers have gotten themselves into the game, and are providing custom-made software for you to enjoy, or enjoy in the future, your motorcycle.

Here's list of apps I've found for the iPhone and Android coming from the motorcycle manufacturer. I'm not listing apps from 3rd party providers unless they are closely associated to the manufacturer, and no apps from the manufacturer's dealers, although I'm impressed by the Harley-Davidson dealers.... I don't think there's one dealer that doesn't have an app.


 


18 February, 2013 - 30 Postage Stamps With Motorcycles From Around The World - Part 1
Postage Stamp Motorcycle Afghanistan
Postage Stamp Motorcycle Antigua and Barbuda
There are people who love motorcycles, and there are people who love collecting postage stamps, and believe it or not, there are people who love both.

Over the years most postal services around the world have issued stamps with motorcycles on them. Here is but a small collection of stamps, literally from around the world, with motorcycles on them. Some old, some new.

I've grouped them by country, though some countries do no exist anymore, and at times it was difficult to "guess" the country, so if there are any mistakes, I apologize in advance. There are will several other parts coming in the next few weeks. Some of the stamps may not be real stamps, but I can't tell the difference....

Here are 31 photos of motorcycles carrying anything, even the kitchen sink..


 


21 January, 2013 - 15 Bikers Sleeping On Their Motorcycles and Scooters - Part 2
Sleeping on a Motorcycle
Sleeping on a Motorcycle
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.


 


14 January, 2013 - Postal Services Motorcycles and Scooters - Then and Now - Around The World
Postal USA
Postal Switzerland
From all the service companies out there, the post office comes to our homes and businesses almost daily, and in order to do this as efficiently as possible, they often ride motorcycles or scooters. Motorcycles are easy to use for the mailman (and mailwomen) as they don't need to get off to deliver the mail.

Postal services have been using motorcycles and scooters from the beginning when the bikes were created, so it's not a new thing. But what is recent, is that many of these PTW used by the post office are becoming electric. You can see more and more electric scooters and electric powered bicycles...........

Sometimes a plain vanilla motorcycle is just not enough. Sometimes you want to customize it the way you like. And for many guys, the female body is perfection, so why not make your motorcycle look like you are riding a woman.

Here are ten photos of motorcycle shaped liked a female body. Imagine the looks you get when riding these... might even be a bit embarrassing. You also got to think where you fill the gas tank... where do you put the nozzle?


 


20 August, 2012 - 12 Motorcycles Made Out Of Sand
Motorcycle Sand Sculpture
Motorcycle Sand Sculpture
As kids we've all made sand castles, and some even ventured further by making more elaborate castles with decorated turrets, moats, etc. The kids turned into adults, but some remained kids at heart and continued making sand castles. Except now they're no longer sand castles but very detailed works of art.

Several artists, since that is what they are, make some of the most incredible and imaginative structures made out of sand. One of these elaborate structures they make are motorcycles. Making motorcycles out of sand can't be easy. For one reason, motorcycles have round forms; tires, mud guards, fuel tanks, etc, and making those of out sand can not be easy. But they still do it.

Here are 12 photos of motorcycles made out of sand.........

25 June, 2012 - Motorcycles, Women and Shoes - 20 Photos
Woman On Motorcycle And Shoes
Woman On Motorcycle And Shoes
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.

Poster The Wild Angels
Poster The Thing With Two Heads
We love movies, most people do at least. Tastes might differ, but a good movie leaves no one indifferent. And since we all ride motorcycles, what's better than a movie that has a few scenes with motorcycles in them

Since we're talking about movies with motorcycles in them, many of them have posters where you can actually see one or more motorcycles. So here's the first batch of movie posters that have motorcycles in them.

For most posters, if you click on the image, you are brought in a new window to the Motorcycles in the Movies database, where you can see much more information about the movie (cast, story, country, etc) , more photos and often the movie trailer.


 


12 March, 2012 - 40 Photos Of Blown-up Motorcycles
Blown up motorcycle Pakistan
Blown up motorcycle India
Terrorists are nasty people, causing havoc and destruction amongst people. They have been known to drive trucks and cars full of explosives into crowded areas. Most security authorities have started putting obstacles in place that will prevent a car or truck to penetrate these areas. So the terrorists have turned to motorcycles....

Motorcycles are difficult to stop, since if you can walk there, you can ride there. They don't pack as much explosives, but can have a devastating effect.

Here are 40 photos of motorcycles there were either used for such an attack, or "innocent" motorcycles that got caught in the blast.

WARNING: If you're squeamish of the sight of a blown-up motorcycle, totally destroyed, do not read on. I have not taken any photos with bodies in them.


 


20 February, 2012 - 21 Bikers Sleeping On Their Motorcycle
Sleeping on a Motorcycle
Sleeping on a 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....


 


28 November, 2011 - 32 Photos Of John Deere Motorcycles
John Deere BMW Motorcycle
John Deere logo
The John Deere colors are probably one of the most recognizable colors in the world. John Deere agricultural equipment can be found in any part of the globe, so the green and yellow is something many people immediately identify as John Deere.

So it's no surprise that many motorcycle owners customize their bike in John Deere's colors. We've showed a few customized motorcycles in John Deere colors in the past, but here's a much bigger list, 32 photos (some are of the same motorcycle).

It's not only Harley-Davidson, but BMW, Yamaha, Moto Guzzi, Kawasaki, Boss Hoss and even a diesel motorcycle that are "victim" of the John Deere craze.

23 May, 2011 - 34 Motorcycles Carrying A Lot Of People
Motorcycle Loaded With Many People
Most bikers prefer riding their motorcycle alone, but having a pillion is okay. It's a bit more tricky, since the weight of the pillion, when shifting can upset the balance of the motorcycle.

Having two pillions is very difficult, so what do you think about riding a motorcycle or scooter with more than 2 pillions?

Here are 34 photos of motorcycles and scooters carrying a hell of a lot of people.... scary!

For those of you who have to haul lots of stuff around, you know that a pick-up truck not only is great vehicle, but it looks good. But if you're into motorcycles and not cages, then you might think you're out of options.

However, in Asia, motorcycle pick-ups (or are they called Pick-up Motorcycles) are as common as their cage counterparts in North America. No matter if you're transporting cargo or people, there's a motorcycle for it.

Here are 45 examples of motorcycle pick-ups.

Enjoy

We as a category of people like the good stuff. We obviously love motorcycles, but we also like good food and booze. Sometimes, a bit too much.

Many of us, and that includes myself, could do with a few pounds less. But some bikers are way overboard. I guess being overweight has its advantages:.

Here are 33 photos of fat, overweight and obese motorcycle riders.

Scooter Many Lights

Having a good visibility at night is a good thing. Most motorcycle and scooter manufacturers often do not put sufficient lights on our rides to see properly in the dark. So we add some lights. And then we add some more light. And even more lights. Before you know it, you've got more lights than vehicle!

Here are 43 scooters that have installed extra lights. And I mean a lot of lights.

Crashed Motorcycle
Crashed Motorcycle
I've been pondering for a while whether to do this "list" article. I'm dead-set against rubbernecking and glaring at pictures of deadly crashes, specially those of motorcycles, but seeing crashed motorcycles is often a way to make you think a bit. And thinking and realizing that this could happen to you is actually a good thing.

Bold bikers don't live to be old, so it's a question of knowing that anything can happen out there, and to be prepared.

So here are 50 photos of motorcycles that have crashed, and one that is bound to crash shortly.
