Back in 2011 I featured a world tour video project called Flake and Flames, by a motorcyclist named Jesper Bram. Bram is famous among motorcycle bloggers as the owner of Helmet Hair Motorcycle blog. Helmet Hair was once the coolest motorcycle blog on the internet, so I knew that Jesper's movie would be equally if not exponentially more awesome.Read More »
Do you have the Harley-Davidson socks, glasses, underwear, jacket and still can't get enough? Well search no longer as you can now listen to music while advertising for your favorite brand! In all seriousness, I had the option of which set of headphones I wanted to review and I selected these ones based on their looks alone. Opinions are like butts though - everyone has one. If these weren’t for you I’d recommend you visit Fuseplusyou.com and find a set that tickles your fancy. The question is: are they any good?Read More »

What's an avid watch collection (yes, they exist) to do when he realizes that his hobby just isn't enough? Overcoming the shock that watch collecting could get dull was probably the easy part, but what happened next was a stroke of brilliance. Watch Parts Motorcycles, based in Toronto, Canada, has spent hundreds if not thousands of hours building handmade miniature motorcycle models out of thousands of parts from hundreds of watches.
His creations are stunning and have earned him international attention and a Facebook following of over 2,400 fans in just over a year. Take a look at some of these beautiful two wheeled creations.

I picked up a pair of Alpinestars Blacktop shoes a year ago. I was doing a lot less office work and a lot more bartending. I needed a motorcycle boot that could provide more protection than a sneaker, but was low-key enough to be worn under a pair of jeans or khakis without sticking out like a sore thumb. The Blacktops were a perfect fit.Read More »
>Ashley says the greatest thing I ever bought for her was her Kindle eBook Reader. It was the perfect solution for a female motorcyclist who didn't have space for for the dozens of books she reads every year. One particular trilogy she downloaded was The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. The book is a complete thriller set in Sweden. It follows the intermingling lives of a disgraced journalist, and an outcast young female motorcyclist. The unlikely duo eventually pair up and can only attempt storm their way through a labyrinth of deception, secrets, and brutal violence. And now it's in theaters!Read More »
Motorcyclists live a lifestyle far from the mainstream. We don’t hold the same set of values as everyone else. We don’t comply with society’s prescribed notions of acceptable norms and behaviours. In a world of cages, rules, and safety nets, we find ourselves a counter-culture all of our own. Whether we sweat in the dirt, shave seconds off at the track, stroll the boulevards, or spend hours in the shop creating a machine like no other, we’re all part of riding and her many subcultures.
A new documentary film, Flake and Flames, looks at the Kustom Kulture, one of our most colorful. The film looks at top artists and designers from around the world, and some of the hottest rides.
There’s something about the connection between man, machine, and the elements. Hand on the throttle, rubber on the asphalt, warm sun and cool wind on face. It’s part of the beautiful connection of riding. When we were looking to expand our connection to include others, we bought a Cardo Scala Rider Multiset Q2.Read More »
Studio is a KYMCO Canada's flagship location (review of Adri's Kymco here). The attractive dealership's atmosphere itself, as well as the staff, literally tell you to “just come and hang out”. What you’ll find is the KYMCO line-up of scooters, ATVs, and motorcycles, as well as a handful of Japanese super-sports and Harley-Davidsons.Read More »
