Let the good times roll

Augmented Reality Helmet

  First of all, I’ve been in Australia for almost a year, so that’s why this blog has been very quiet for a while. I’ve seen some amazing motorcycle roads in Queensland and will tell you all about it sometime. Anyways, I’m back, and the bike is on the road! How cool would it be […]

White Wall Tires

I’m in the market for a new set of tires for my Vulcan 900. I’m seriously thinking about getting some sweet white wall tires. They’re a bit harder to keep clean and pretty but they give the 900 Classic a nice vintage look which I like.   Check out this video from a guy that […]

Shark: RSI-carbon helmets

Shark has released a new helmet series called “RSI-carbon”. The helmet manufacturer are building their new series on the old RSR2-carbon series. The helmet scores 4 stars in the Sharp test (same as the Shark Evoline mentioned in a post last year). The old RSR2-carbon series gets 5 stars in the Sharp test, mind you. […]

What’s a gremlin bell? And why you need one

Have you noticed that some riders have a small bell hanging off their motorcycle frame? Do you know why? That little bell is not just for decoration, it also wards off evil road spirits (gremlins). The gremlins cause all sorts of problems. Have you ever had a flat battery? It’s the gremlins! Did your head […]

Multitool with a fork and spoon!

My family gave me an excellent little multitool that’ll be great to bring on longer rides where I’ll have to camp. It has all the standard features like a knife, corkscrew, can opener and bottle opener, but it also has a spoon and a fork which is great cause I’ll never have to bring cutlery […]
