Interview: Worth “E.T.” Cadenhead

One day, Worth "E.T." Cadenhead decided to follow us on Twitter. It must've been a really slow news day because I asked if he'd like to do an interview on the site. Well, it turns out this resident Texan motorcyclist and motorcycle dealership worker is a little more interesting than his profile mug shot makes him seem!

Worth talks of growing up on bikes, motorcycle riding adventures, the Gypsy Motorcycle Club, and making the switch from cruiser to a sport bike that sportbikers don't actually consider a sport bike. Check it out:

Bikers Are Awesome: Switch Riders Video

Bikers Are Awesome: Switch Riders Video

Let's face it: it doesn't take anything to stand on the soap box and declare yourself awesome. Anyone can talk the talk, but it takes a special something to live up to the hype. I'm not sure if that something is confidence, coolness, or cojones. Maybe it's planning, perservearance, and practice. Maybe greatness is the sum of a whole lot of things aligning just right for you, like all of the gears turning in synch in your favorite motorcycle motor.

You're about to watch an incredible motorcycle stunting video with over five million hits. It's titled "Bikers Are Awesome", and as far as I'm concerned it lives up to the hype. The three riders (Jeremy Merires, Thomas Sagnier, Kevin Parussini) from Switch Riders are incredibly talented. They exhibit a tremendous amount of balance, control, precision, and timing. This isn't just a motorcycle stunting video, it's the benchmark for all motorcycle stunting videos to come.

The Boston Marathon Bombing: Staying Positive

I've never been to Boston, but just like any citizen of North America, I have my ties to city, and to the Boston Marathon.

Once upon a time, back in the 1980s, a young doctor delivered a baby to a happy couple. Through no fault of the doctor, the baby was born quite ugly. The new mother told the new grandmother: "Ma, I had the baby, but he's ugly. He looks like an old chinese man." That isn't to say that old chinese men are ugly, because George Takei is a rock star. In this case, however, the baby was ugly. The doctor's name was Jean Marmoreo, and the ugly baby's name was me.

What to Listen to on a Motorcycle Ride

Harley-Davidson Stereo Earphones Review

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?

Custom Motorcycle Builder Videos

bikerMetric just shared a great video on Shinya Kimura, a personal favorite motorcycle builder of mine. Shinya has been involved in motorcycles for over 25 years. He's the originator of the "zero style" custom motorcycle originating in Japan. His work would quickly gain recognition for its minimalistic and vintage style of bikes. Shinya shows the beauty of the raw materials incorporated into his designs. He now works out of his shop, Chabott Engineering, in Azusa, California. Shinya mentions in the video that he doesn't sketch out his creations, he simply creates based on how he feels in that moment. Check out the video to get a feel of what he's all about:
