  1. Breakfast Ride to Lookout Mountain with Ms Martha
    From Redleg's Rides This morning, Martha and I headed out to Westminsters, one of the cities which comprise part of the Denver Metro Area.  We met her cousin Craig and his wife Monique along with their two sons Tyler and Matthew.  Tyler was being settled into CU Boulder to start work on a law degree.Breakfast was enjoyable as the cousins caught up and exchanged news and happenings.After breakfast, they were off to pack as some were going to their new lodging, some were flying back to Virginia where Martha's cousin lives and plays/serves

  2. I wanted to just keep going?.
    From On Two Wheels It was one of those perfect mornings. We?d had some rain overnight which cooled things off a bit so the temperature was in the low 20?s (about 70 or so for you Fahrenheit folks out there). The remnants of the storm clouds were still present in the early morning sky so I couldn't describe it as a ?cloudless day? but it was obviously clearing and there was no need to worry about getting a soaking ? at least not for the next few hours. The roads were wet though and

  3. A little mid-Winter fiction
    From Redleg's Rides The streets of Salzburg were quiet as the rider steered his motorcycle sidecar rig through the three inches of snow which had fallen in the early evening.  The frigid weather coupled with strong winds whipping down from the heights dominated by the Salzburg castle had driven all the regular pedestrians into the nearest inn or restaurant and the rider had the streets to himself. The gas lit streetlights cast his helmeted visage briefly in a yellow ghostly light as he transited the intervening pools of darkness towards his destination.  The strong headlamps

  4. Did You Know? French Micro Car Had A Motorcycle Engine
    From Cyril Huze Blog... Without doors and enough room to fit 2 very slender adults, the Rolux VB61 convertible micro car was produced in France between 1947 and 1952.

  7. Co-Built Champion
    From Sideblog Anthony Brown of Co-Built is the British Thunderbike champion. Anthony is probably the nicest fella in a paddock full of nice fellas and he won the title on a bike his three-man cooperative designed and built. Co-Built created the 4130-steel frame and swingarm from scratch. They designed and made the yokes (triple clamps), commissioned the twin shocks, made the exhaust...There are only three adult classes in UK racing: Short track (for DTX bikes, though Thunderbikes can enter); Thunderbikes (air-cooled framers, road-based bikes and any twins or multis inc. XR750s) and

  8. A Man's Scooter!
    From Lucky's Hideaway As expected, the jokes have already started at work about my new "girly" bike! No worries, I can take it and dish it out with the best of 'em. However, one of my colleagues was worried that I might feel emasculated by the fact that I'm now "stuck riding a step-through", so he wrote me the following email which I share with you now: "OK, let me start off by saying this 2011 Burgman 650 Exec ABS is only available for purchase by the manliest of men. My friend,

  9. The Class System
    From Sideblog Classes for everything. I'm surprised there isn't a Home Economics class. I suppose this way everyone fills up their trophy shelves.I quite like how Short Track UK run it. Short track (every full-size bike), Thunderbikes (air-cooled framers and street-bike based racers), Mini Bikes (adults on tiddlers), Juniors. Huge classes and the fastest guy wins. This Lodi Class list was found on Poppawheelie by J-W Dutch Brother. He particularly liked the Beer Belly Class. We'd have a good go at filling that one in the UK. G

  10. Ugliest Bike?
    From Lucky's Hideaway So I'm on coffee break at work with a few colleagues who happen to be motorcycle aficionados and rather than argue on who has the most blinged/farkled/powerful bike, we're pondering the question of the ugliest bike ever built. Of course, for such an important debate to take place, there has to be some ground rules: a) it must be a full production motorcycle (i.e. not a "custom" or "limited edition" model), and b) it has to be mainstream enough that a motorcyclist worthy of the title will have

  11. 2012 Harley-Davidson V-Rod 10th Anniversary

  12. Riding on the Darkside
    From Redleg's Rides Amongst Beemer Airhead motorcycle owners,  going to "the dark side" is jokingly used as the Beemer rider who forsakes the Teutonic perfection that is the air-cooled boxer engine; and buys instead a BMW K Bike with it's "Flying Brick" engine mounted on its side.Turns out, there's a different variation of moving over to the dark side.  In this case, its called riding on the darkside or putting a car tire on the back of a motorcycle!Why do this you ask?  Well, there's several reasons apparently, but the main one I

  13. Updated: Hot weather riding tips and information
    From Redleg's Rides I first posted this back in April of 2009.  A recent posting on a blog I follow reminded me of it and  I figured it was a good time to republish it as a reminder and update it with stuff I've learned since then.Here's some of things I consider, have learned, use or do when riding in hot weather.Now, what's hot weather? Anytime, when ATGATT of course, that you're feeling hot enough to start sweating. That's my definition anyways. (All The Gear All The Time)Courtesy of: Motorbyte.comFirst off,

  14. Colorado Dreaming! We also bought a SINK!
    From Moto Adrenaline Day #2 ? Colorado baby! Bring on the cool temps ! We had a great nights rest and were ready to head to Colorado. The temps were not bad on this day of riding as we were heading north the entire day. We went up on I-40 for a few miles before jumping off in San Jon and heading up thru Mosquero and Roy New Mexico. Both are small places but it was nice being in New Mexico. There are a few miles with some curves and a small
