Taking a look at the most dangerous motorcycle roads in the world.Read More »
Scott Kolb's been working on a 125cc motorcycle for the past seven years. His goal: to be the first person to take a 125cc motorcycle up to 200 miles per hour.
200 miles. That's 321 kilometers. The fastest I've ever seen a 125cc motorcycle go is about 140 km/hr (87 mph). That's less than half. Scott Kolb's mission is to take a 125cc motorcycle and make it go two and a third times faster than it's meant to. Flashback to the World's Fastest Indian, anyone?
... to shake that ass. Seriously.
I'm exploring Twitter a lot and trying to see who's interesting out there. I find a lot of motorcyclists out there with some really bike-tastic names and pictures.

Now, I like the TV show as much anyone, although not as much as many of you, but come on!
Just because a blog isn't participating in #29in29, doesn't make it uncool. For motorcycle blogs which retell the planning and riding of some seriously long motorcycle road trips, a daily blog post just doesn't make sense. MISSRIDER is one example (see: Woman Rides Her Motorcycle Alone Across The United States, and Female Motorcyclist Retells Travelling Across the USA).
Another site that doesn't need to update to stay awesome? The Call of the Road. One of those ride of a lifetime stories, The Call of the Road tells the story of an 8 week, 9,000+ mile ride from Florida to Alaska. This week Circus Boy Nathan proudly showed his new adventure trailer video. Catch it here.
The spontaneous and unplanned rides are sometimes the most fun. It started with a text message from my girlfriend: “What are we going to do today?” Before long we found ourselves near the historic village of Kleinburg, Ontario. Kleinburg is surrounded by beautiful hills and branches of the Humber river.
The town is picturesque and its early 1800s origins have been left unspoiled.

She was like a magnet. Wherever she went the animals drew near. Closer and closer she summoned them. For a moment it seemed as though the animals had come to admire her... and then, abruptly, a child would run up to the zoo animals screaming, and the moment would be ruined. Damn kids!Read More »
