How Motorcycles Are Built

How Motorcycles Are Built

Winter of 2009 was a cold one. The US housing market had crashed and the recession was in full swing and people were struggling to pay even the most essential bills. Motorcyclists counted their pennies and weathered the storm, hoping the spring would bring better fortune.

For one motorcyclist, a YouTube one hit wonder called iamthenoah, Christmas came early in November. He shared a video of a Suzuki GSX-R which assembled itself. It has been viewed over 1,000,000 times and remained the most memorable motorcycle assembly video to date.

How The Motorcycle Industry Works

YouMotorcycle Himself

I've come the conclusion that you can either love motorcycling, or you can work in the motorcycle industry, but not both.

Maybe there are a few exceptions. Who wouldn’t mind being a journalist flown to Spain on someone else's dime to test ride the latest and greatest new motorcycle at a press launch? I can tell you first hand the media doesn't have it easy, either. I’ve seen journalists braving out freezing cold storms on machines I wouldn’t want to ride anywhere but the track on a warm sunny day. These guys are tough.

M2 Exit Test for 125cc Motorcycles or 150cc Scooter in Ontario

M2 Exit on a Scooter

In Ontario we have a three-class motorcycle licensing system. There is a beginner class (M1 - written test), an intermediate class (M2 - riding test), and finally your full M class license. Unfortunately, the vehicle-specific requirements, definition of vehicles, and options available get a little blurry in the bureaucracy, and many small displacement motorcycle and cruiser riders are left in the mess

... but don't worry, that's what YouMotorcycle is here for.

Valentine’s Day Gifts for Motorcyclists

Valentines Day Motorcycle Superheroes

Motorcyclists tend to be a little more free-thinking, a little less likely to follow society and her "rules", and a little more likely to go against the grain. We like to think ourselves as the modern day cowboys. In a society where the government dictates the lives of its people, rather than the people dictating the lives of its government, motorcyclists are among the last bastions of freedom.

Despite our poetic disposition motorcyclists are still human, I have the road rash to prove it, and most of us are just as likely to play a role in Valentine's Day as anyone else. The questions are:

1) What does Valentine's Day mean for motorcyclists?

2) What should I buy a motorcyclist for Valentine's Day?

2013 Pirelli Calendar

2013 Pirelli Calendar

2013 marked the 40th anniversary of Pirelli's calendar, but odds are you've probably never seen one in real life. Every year, Pirelli gathers a dozen gorgeous (Margareth Madè) and famous (Milla Jovovich) women and asks them to strip for the camera. The calendar prints are so few that even the most well-intentioned gentleman in the motorcycle industry, me, has yet to see a copy of this celebration of the female body.

For 2013, Pirelli has taken a whole new approach. The nude calendar is no more, and while we mourn its loss, we're excited about where this is headed. Pirelli hired photographer Stephen McCurry, dropped the idea of jaw-dropping babes, and drafted a roster of girl next door type belles doing awe-inspiring charitable work across the world for a serious of clothed portraits. The results are stunning all the same, as these women and Rio bare just enough to show why they're rising stars on a global scale.

An Outsider’s Perspective of Motorcyclists

An Outsider’s Perspective of Motorcyclists

@Gabby_DB - Dancer / Contortionist / Aerialist
The world is a better place when hanging upside down

Adrian at YouMotorcycle proposed the idea to me of writing an outsider’s perspective of motorcyclists.

As ignorant as this might sound, up until 3 months ago I didn’t think there was much of a motorcycle community, let alone an entire motorcycle world, but YouMotorcycle has opened up my eyes to something new to me.
