Brake lights on a motorcycle are not that easy to see. They're usually low, and car, specially when tailgating, can't see them enough.

There will be no bodychecking!


21 August, 2008 - Sand In Your Motorcycle Engine
Kawasaki motorycle made from sand

Stow and Talk communicator

A bunch of Italians with time, nifty power tools, and a spare Ducati Multistrada motorcycle, turned their motorcycle into something else.

Magic Roundabout
In the UK, this would be the first sign you see when riding along the countryside on your motorcycle that you're in deep trouble.

14 August, 2008 - Off Road Riding With Your Scooter

From the photo it's obvious that you can ride your scooter off road, though it's not a dirt motorcycle.

13 August, 2008 - Yearly Motorcycle Technical Check Coming To Belgium
Opinion Article
Politics Article
Sometimes politicians just don't get it (OK, not sometimes, it's actually very often). They make assumptions, they don't research matters, and then they want to make a law based on faulty findings.

It's the case at this moment in Belgium. Like most European countries, cars need to have a yearly technical inspection, and now a senator wants the same for motorcycles "BECAUSE OFF THE HIGH ACCIDENT RATE OF MOTORCYCLES".

Get your fact right before making statements like that.

Ducati logo
Italian motorcycle manufacturer Ducati is changing ownership, again.... I've lost track in the last few years how many times they changed.

Thankfully it hasn't effected their product line up, but employee moral should be quite low. Maybe Harley should have bought Ducati... ;-)


11 August, 2008 - Would You Spend US$300 K For This Motorcycle?
OCC Shelby GT500 Chopper motorcycle
On eBay at this moment you'll find a OCC produced motorcycle for sale. It's the Shelby Cobra chopper.

Is any motorcycle worth US$300,000? Maybe for a special technology one, like the turbine driven motorcycle, the MT Y2K, but for a chopper?


11 August, 2008 - Speedway’s Motorcycle Ordinance Cancelled Thanks To Motorcycle Blog Pressure
Speedway City logo
Remember last month we told you about the town hall of Speedway, In, USA (where the MotoGP will be held) was planning an ordinance that would make it illegal to rev up your motorcycle engine? A lot of motorcycle web sites went up in arms about it.

Well, the good news is that the city has seen the light (and smelled the loss of money) and are now abandoning the ordinance.

Thank you Speedway for seeing the light and being brave enough to make the change.


8 August, 2008 - Using Coyote To Warn Others About Radar Traps
French company Coyote have the 21st century equivalent of flashing your lights or warning others on your CB radio if you spot a Police speed radar trap.

The first museum dedicated to East German built motorcycle will open its doors this month in Berlin, Germany.


7 August, 2008 - Motorcycle Camping Without A Tent
Travelling with a tent on your motorcycle is not always easy, since tents take up space.

The Swedish invention, Bivanorak, could do the trick for those who really want to travel light. It doesn't take up much space, and you can even supplement it with a Tarp.

But no snuggling up....


6 August, 2008 - Old Motorcycle Print Ads 1971-1972

5 August, 2008 - John McCain Buys Motorcycle T-Shirt
John McCain at Sturgis
Kind of lame, but US Presidential candidate John McCain shows up at Sturgis and heads for the souvenir shop.

Riding motorcycle in the rain with kids
Hmmmm.. he probably doesn't have much choice, but packing your kids on a motorcycle while there's a storm (and with no helmets), is not the way it's done.

4 August, 2008 - Cheap Dodge Tomahawk Motorcycle
Replica Tomahawk
Have you always dreamed of owning the Dodge Tomahawk motorcycle, but the US$ 550,000 is just a tad too steep for you?

You can now own one for only US$1400! That's right, 1398 dollars and it's yours. But you don't get a V10, 8 liter Viper engine; You do get a 150 cc engine, AND a scooter transmission. There you go... have fun!

Since 2003, in one province alone, they have confiscated and destroyed 500,000+ motorcycles.... yes... HALF A MILLION motorcycles!

Talk about genocide!


1 August, 2008 - Fossil Fuel? No! Bio Fuel? No! Coca Cola Fuel
Coca Cola Fuel
You don't need no stinking bio fuel to save money and the planet!

Just fill up your motorcycle with good old Coca-Cola! That's one fuel that is not imported!
