This is way too cool. And when I say cool, I mean COLD. The imagination and creativity of some PR folks knows no boundaries. Here is a TV commercial from Hero MotoCorp Open link in a new window, one of the big motorcycle manufacturing giants based in India.

The advertisement is for their Karizma ZMREicma 2011 Hero MotoCorp motorcycle, and in this well filmed ad you get to see the bike helping out an icebreaker which is stuck in the ice. The motorcycle comes to its rescue.

Don't you love it the idea???

Video Hero MotoCorp Karizma ZMR 2014

But what I find even funnier is the little text below the ad - it's a "don't try this at home kids" warning.... like we're going to ride our motorcycle in ice at the North Pole??

Still, great ad. Have a look at the video below. Enjoy.

Park Your Motorcycle In Your Garage Easily - Easy-P

Usually you set out to get a garage to park your car and motorcycle and to store some of your goodies (BBQ, lawn mower, etc). But very quickly you end up with less and less space, and your motorcycle will suffer the most of this. But there are different ways of utilizing the premium real estate in your garage. You can of course use the height, but that's pretty expensive and not that easy. Italian made Easy-P Open Easy-P link in a new window offers an easy way of parking your motorcycle in difficult spots to save space in the garage.

Easy-P have two different solution, each with a series of products. The EP Series of parking stands are free-wheeling stands, while the Bs Series is anchored to the garage floor, or are more voluminous in their conception.

The EP Series is a simple concept. Place the stand in the garage, put the brakes on, ride your motorcycle onto it, take the brake off and simply push your motorcycle to the area you want it parked.

Easy P Parking Stands

Taking your motorcycle for a ride, simply reverse the process. The above stand is designed for motorcycles equipped with a center stand, with a maximum weight of 450 kgs..

Price: €349.

Have a look at the video, you'll see how easy it is:



They have stands dedicated to sports motorcycles, Harley, Touring bikes and universal stands.

Easy P Parking Stands

This is the stand for sportsmotorcycles. It allows bikes for up to 270 kgs, and it uses the bike's side stand for support. Have a look at the video below to see how it works.

Price: €369



The Bs Series are stands that have been anchored to the garage floor, or are used to for bigger & heavier bikes. For example this shuttle stand can be used to move the motorcycle around the garage, and it has a wheel lock:

Easy P Parking Stands

It allows easy access, and then moving the motorcycle to wherever you need. Have a look at the video below:

Price: €1049



Or you can have the stand anchored to your garage floor. This means bolting a part of the stand to the floor, and obviously you can not move it to wherever you have space at that moment. But it is more solid and easy to use.

Easy P Parking Stands

But you need more space in your garage than with any of the other methods. The video explains how it works.

Price: €1099



Looks like nice solutions to real estate problems in a garage. Now you can place your motorcycle or scooter anywhere you need, and still move your lawn mower, BBQ set, deck chairs out of the garage without any problems. Nice.

So this is why you need a sidecar. Makes sense.....(and no, I'm not saying it's a woman's thing ... no sexism to be found here).

24 Hours of Le Mans Motorcycle Race 2014 - Biker Rest Places

24H Le Mans Moto 2014 Poster
The 24H Le Mans Motorcycle Race Open 24H Le Mans Motorcycle Race in a new window is almost upon us (20 and 21 September), and we now have the list of motorcycle resting places alongside the French roads leading to and from Le Mans.

The 24 Hours of Le Mans is a big event and many bikers (estimated 90,000) attend this event from all over Europe. If you come from far, or even close-by, you can stop at one of these rest places, tank up, talk to other bikers and eat some (usually free food).

Autoroutes


As usual with these big events, most autoroutes (motorways) leading to the circuit will be free for motorcycles. When you arrive at a toll booth that requires you to take a ticket, take it and store it. Once you arrive at the exit toll booth, there usually is a dedicated toll booth (normally the right most one), where you hand in your ticket, and the toll booth operator lets you ride out without paying.

Free autoroutes:
Autoroute A11 : Between the Saint-Arnoult toll booth and Le Mans, between Angers and Le Mans and between Angers and Nantes
Autoroute A81 : Between La Gravelle (Vitré) and Le Mans
Autoroute A85 : Between Angers and Restigné
Autoroute A28 : Between Saint-Christophe-sur-le-Nais and Le Mans and between Alençon and Le Mans.

Relais Motards Calmos logo
The usual Relais Motards Calmos, motorcycle rest places (for those of you who need to ride long distance, and need a place to calm down, tank up, re-energize or just meet up with fellow bikers), will be present before and after the 24 Hours motorcycle race held at the Le Mans (see the related articles below to see what a Relais Calmos looks like).

Some rest stops offer food, drinks, mechanics, massage or even sleeping arrangements. This service is offered, mostly for free, by the French Government and the FFMC Open link in a new window. The rest stops are usually very well indicated on the roads leading to the rest stop. Keep a look out for signs saying "Relais Calmos".

NOTE2:
In the general map, clicking on a red marker will give you the same information about the Relais Calmos.

WARNING: There will be a lot of Police speed radars installed along the major roads there. Sunday, the mobile Police force will be out in massive numbers, so watch your speed!

France: Some Cops Are Just Not Smart - Video

Some cops are just not that smart, or try to look professional while screwing up. But it becomes even more obvious when the police officer is demonstrating the use of a laser radar gun on TV.

Dumb Cop Holds Radar Wrong

The video below shows a cop checking the speed of a car in the distance while he is being filmed by France's largest TV station TF1 Open TF1 in a new window. But if you look closely to the laser radar gun, you'll see that the gun is turned the wrong way! He is checking the speed of his eyeballs.

Major fail for the cop, and that on national television. Poor guy...



Via: SWSINMBTAPSource Web Site Is Not Mentioned Because They Are Pricks.

Normally between web sites, when you find data for an article on someone's site, you mention where you found it, usually with a Via or Source link.

Some sites see themselves above everyone else (or afraid that their readers go elsewhere), and never or rarely mention others. Since these sites have been doing this to me, I have decided not to mention them.

Why should I?
