30 July, 2010 - Elegance On A Motorcycle
Motorcycle elegance
Would this qualify as riding elegantly on a motorcycle (or a scooter as the case may be). Sure looks like it to me..


30 July, 2010 - Top Internet Stories - 30 July 2010
Web Article
Holiday time coming up, and there's less and less on the net. Here are some interesting motorcycle articles that you may be interested in.

- Women Stunt Riders Past And Present

30 July, 2010 - These Motorcycles Were Meant For Walking (On It)
Worker on Honda Motorcycle Jakarta
Sorry, got stuck with some stupid music tune in my head when I saw the photo.

What's more interesting are the statistics. 3 x more motorcycles sold than cars in Indonesia...


29 July, 2010 - Movie Review: Killer Biker Chicks
Killer Biker Chicks scene
Killer Biker Chicks cover
This would count for the ultimate B-movie (in fact, they show the definition of B-movies at the start). It's got motorcycles, bare chested women, violence and barely no acting and the most cheesy and corny lines you can imagine.

It's so corny and strangely filmed that it's not only funny, but enjoyable. That is, if you're into B-Movies. Killer Biker Chicks is not a biker movie despite it having motorcycles.


29 July, 2010 - Ad: Maccabi Healthcare - Funny
Macabi iphone
Not only is this a nice print ad, combining two of my passions; motorcycle and gadgets, but when you go to the advertizers site, the iPhone app is actually really cool, and I wonder why other countries don't provide such a service.


29 July, 2010 - Video: If Our Motorcycle Had Gears Like This
Video clip
What if the gears in our motorcycle were like this one in this video?



28 July, 2010 - Video: Kawasaki - Let The Good Times Roll #2
Video clip
Kawasaki logo
This is the 2nd Kawasaki TV ad for their motorcycle from back in the 1980's.

It's very much like the popular Coca-Cola TV ads from those days.


28 July, 2010 - Video: Aprilia Motorcycles Aren’t For Painting
Video clip
Aprilia logo
A really cool video, I'd say more or less in response to BMW's cloth-from-the-table-pulling video, from Aprilia.

In this funny video, you see an Aprilia RSV4 motorcycle painting! Honest, it's painting. Have a look.


28 July, 2010 - France: The New Radar Warning Signs
France Radar New sign
This is the new radar warning sign in France. No longer do you get an advanced warning of an upcoming speed radar so you can slow down your motorcycle, but now all it tells you is that you are in a zone covered by a radar a few kilometers long.


28 July, 2010 - Ultimate ATGATT. All You Will Ever Need On A Motorcycle
Fruit Armor
Fruit Armor
The famous Banana Guards, the ultimate ATGATT gear for the discerning motorcycle rider, has got better.

Now available is the Froot Guard, ATGATT gear for your apples, grapes, oranges, peaches, nectarines and lemons.

Without these protectors, your motorcycle gear is not complete.


27 July, 2010 - Keeping Cool With KTM Motorcycles
KTM Ice Cube Tray
Need to keep cool during the summer when not riding your motorcycle?

KTM to the rescue! A KTM-logo ice cube tray.... what more do you want. Sorry, "Harley-Davidson" is too long for ice cubes...


27 July, 2010 - Ad: Allen Solly and The Unicycle Motorcycle
Allen Solly Unicycle
Some groovy and funky print ad featuring a unicycle motorcycle drew me to the advertizer's web site.

Allen Solly is an Indian clothing brand, and their web site is really good. And it's got nothing to do with motorcycles, except this ad...


27 July, 2010 - Raleri PCShade Universal Photochromic Visor
Raleri PCShade
Raleri LCD Visor
Two great visors for motorcycle helmets from Italian Raleri.

One, reasonably chap, is a photochromic visor that changes tint depending on the sun light. The other is an electronic one, that changes tint immediately, but is more expensive.

Both visors do not replace your own motorcycle helmet visor, but sit inside it. All most all helmet can be used.

26 July, 2010 - Europe: FEMA Against Europe’s Motorcycle Safety Proposals
FEMA logo
FEMA are opposed to the ridiculous recommendations made by the European Commission to make our European roads safer, specially for motorcycles.

In essence, the EC wants you to pay much more for buying your motorcycle, not allow you to put after--market stuff on it, and basically make your life as miserable as passible so that you give up motorcycle altogether, and follow the masses.

And to think we paid for that.....


23 July, 2010 - Don’t Bother, It’s Flooded!
Flooded Motorcycle Vietnam
Don't even bother push starting the motorcycle! Can't you see it's flooded...

22 July, 2010 - Movie Review: Angel Unchained
Angel Unchained cover
Video clip
A 1970 biker movie, where for a change, the motorcycle riders are mostly the good guys.

Not one of your best biker movies, but it's not bad. Obviously highly improbable, that a 1%-er gang goes and helps a hippie community fight against the town, but there you go, that's Hollywood for you.


22 July, 2010 - Australia: Educating Motorcycle Riders On Safety
Video clip
Queensland, Australia have a very good web site, run by the local authorities, full of interesting and useful information on motorcycle safety.

Detailed information about the gear you can wear, tips fro riding safely, quizzes, and a good safety video.

Education is a lot better than repression!


22 July, 2010 - News On Tiff Coates’s Travels
Tiffany in Japan

Video clip
ACEM logo
The European motorcycle manufacturers association, ACEM, have published their advertising policy for the manufacturers.

No more aggressive riding TV ads, like KTM's ads.

Huh? But KTMs CEO is also ACEM's President....


21 July, 2010 - Safe Motorcycle Tires
Squared off tire
Riding your motorcycle to your destination, and then switching to those nice twisties can be a danger.

20 July, 2010 - Night Vision On Your Motorcycle
Tag Heuer Squadra 3.jpg
Tag Heuer have developed special glasses that can be used at night. It's not real night vision, but it does make objects stand out more at night when riding your motorcycle.

It's been tested by the 24 Hours of Le Mans racers, both by the Peugeot cars and the Yamaha motorcycle racers.


20 July, 2010 - Canada: Ontario To Subsidize Electric Cars, Not Motorcycles
eSOLEX Front
What looked like a very interesting subsidy/incentive program from Canada for the purchase of Electric Vehicles, with high premiums paid, is really a junk pile.

First, it doesn't apply to electric motorcycles or scooters, and secondly, it's only for the first 10,000 applicants.


20 July, 2010 - Video: Harley-Davidson Dealer - Anti-Ecology
Video clip
Harley-Davidson logo
A TV ad for a San Diego Harley-Davidson motorcycle dealer....

Video clip

As usual, Bajaj have gotten yet another nice TV commercial for their motorcycles.

This one is for their Pulsar 135LS, and it features motorcycles playing music. Nice....


19 July, 2010 - Securing Your Motorcycle The Easy Way
Grip Lock
Interesting motorcycle security device. Instead of bringing a big chain and lock with you to secure your motorcycle, this device fits over your handlebar grip^, and is closed with a combination lock.

It's impossible to ride away with your bike, though it can always be lifted onto a truck.

An added advantage is that you can't ride away forgetting to remove the lock...


16 July, 2010 - 3rd Ural European Biker Bash
Piberstein castle
Ural logo
Russian motorcycle manufacturer Ural are holding their 3rd annual bash in a circa 1200 built castle in Austria.

I can't think of a better venue for a party for Ural riders/owners. Three days in a castle, touring the Austrian Alps, listening to live music....

15 July, 2010 - No More Speed Radar Tickets! Here’s How
Radar Motorcycle Id
Radar speed tickets are going to be a thing of the past! Why?

Because a company in Israel has developed a special paint that makes airplanes and missiles invisible to radar. So if it works on airplanes with sophisticated military radar, it's going to be even simpler for motorcycles and police radars!

I wonder if they have the paint in Ducati red?


14 July, 2010 - France: Bastille Day - Off To See The Parades
Bastille Day Fat Girl Motorcycle
I'm off to watch the parades since it's France's national holiday. I've also picked up some last minute assignments for my favorite magazine, so I'll be away for the next few days.

Hopefully I can try to keep you amused anyway... but don't be surprised if there's nothing here until Monday. But I will try.. honest.

It's more interesting in Europe to ride electric than in the US.

But then we already knew that...

By some strange law, the Supreme Court of India has ruled that in India, when you buy a new motorcycle, you MUST buy a new helmet.

Even if you already have one, or even if you want one, but the dealer doesn't have that brand, you must buy whatever the dealer supplies. If not, no new motorcycle.

Dutch Lane Splitting
The Dutch are debating a new way of taxing you on the road. The politicians are looking at a "pay-as-you-go" tax, i.o.w., you pay for each kilometer on the road.

But a market research done by Goodyear, shows that the Dutch to not want to pay a tax scheme like this, but are willing to pay more money in order to avoid to having to drive in traffic james.

But then why not just ride a motorcycle? No traffic jams and it's much more fun...


5 July, 2010 - Spain: 4 Rest Of The World: 0
Jorge Lorenzo Land Spain
What is it that makes Spain's sport folks win their sports activities?

Just think about it. In the space of a weekend, Spain won their match in the soccer World cup, Nadal won Wimbledon, Contador won the 1st Tour de France race and then of course, our own Jorge Lorenzo won the MotoGP race.

Statistically, that is a lot of Spaniards in the top of their sports.

The Mini Skirt Mob Scene

Funny "TV" ad for Aprilia, for the RS250 motorcycle.

However, it's not a real ad, nor is it from Aprilia. It's for a Dutch school as a project.

Very good idea and execution, better than many ad agencies.
