|There are lots of sites out there that have route descriptions for great motorcycle rides, almost all using crowdsourcing. But here's a site that will tell you very well where to ride in Northern California, and all the rides have been created by several knowledgeable local "guides". |
The site, MotoSFO, was created under the leadership of Carla King, well known adventure rider and author. Together with several other, mostly female, bikers she's put together a comprehensive database of routes to put your motorcycle on when you are in Northern California.
The itineraries are not some generic database, but a well laid out travelogue of the route. There are the inescapable Google Maps with the actual route, but also the recommended restaurants and hotels/B&Bs.

|The French manufacturer of electric trial motorcycles, Electric Motion, has a new website. The company got in the news recently because the first backflip accomplished with an electric motorcycle was done on their bike, an EM 5.7. |
Despite having only one product, they have a busy web site. Unfortunately, the site is in French only.
The EM 5.7 electric trial bike has already started in the competition circuits. The bike itself has 14 hp and 22 Nm torque for 72 kilos. The motorcycle can get you up to a speed of 55 kph, more than enough for this sport category. The battery will last 40 to 180 minutes, again enough to compete in trial competitions. The brushless engine is air cooled.

|22 February, 2012 - Site: Motorcycle Stories|
|There are many web sites out there that publish motorcycle articles; news, entertainment, reviews, etc. You'll find them in every country, and in every language. But here's a web site that is different. It doesn't publish articles reviewing the latest motorcycle color of the IZJH-873B model, nor does it publish anything about which midget racer won which 10cc motorcycle race in Tibet. |
No, this web site publishes stories. You know, stories like what you might find in magazines or books. The site, Bikesnadbuddies, is new, but they are planning to publish stories, fiction or not, about life on the road, motorcycles, friends & family. They've got two stories up, and they are worth the read.
They've got several writers (one of them being Gilby Clarke, the former guitarist for Guns 'n Roses) lined up to make the short stories, so watch their space. You can sign up for a newsletter that will give you their latest stories. They plan to publish a new story every 4 weeks.
Reading the stories already published on their site, they are well written, easy to read and fun.
