If everything goes as plans, fans of FX's popular television show, "Sons of Anarchy" won't have long to wait for a much-anticipated prequel movie. Shooting is expected to start before the end of 2015, and actor Charlie Hunnam is set to return as Jax Teller. The film, which will hopefully hit the big screen in 2016, will also star A-lister, Brad Pitt.
All motorcycles share some fundamental characteristics, but as their popularity and versatility has increased a surprisingly wide array of motorcycle sub-types have evolved to suit riders' needs.
Motorcycles are like any other automobile in that they require scheduled maintenance to continue to run properly. If you want your bike to take care of you, you need to take care of your bike. This means getting to know it rather intimately--using tools in places normally hidden from view and dealing with all kinds of necessary but messy fluids.
Often people say that the only reason we buy a motorcycle is so that we can buy stuff that goes with it. These accessories can be anything, and granted, at times we just buy gear because it makes us feel good.
Tires are what keeps your motorcycle from running smoothly and safely. That little bit of rubber is what keeps you sane, because if you were riding like they used to in the beginning, with metal tires (source), you would be vibrating and bouncing like in a bouncy castle.
Kids usually get the best-of-the-best. Special food, clothes, toys – you name it. It's not that children are all spoiled, it's because they need good materials. Kids are still growing and we need to ensure that we accompany the growth properly.
When a manufacturer designs a motorcycle, they usually take an average person's build as rider. As long as you are close to those dimensions, you will be comfortable on the motorcycle. But if you are taller or smaller by quite a margin, your problems start. You will need to start customizing your ride to fit your dimensions.
While it's unlikely that the average rider will have a serious accident nearly all riders eventually do go down at some speed if they ride for any significant period of time. Being prepared for a potential crash with the right protective gear can often mean the difference between getting up and walking away and a visit to the emergency room.
New riders typically have a lot of questions to ask, but by far the most common one is "What is the best motorcycle for beginners?" While the answer does depend to some extent on things like the individual's personal preferences and body type, there are some simple guidelines worth following for any beginner.
Sturgis is the undisputed king of all motorcycle rallies in the United States. Every year, this monster-size rally is held in the South Dakota town of the same name during the first full week of August. The population of Sturgis, which is approximately 6,000, typically swells to between 400,000 and 600,000 during the period of the rally.
Although, these rallies go by the name, Black Bike Week, the organizers and participants of these events say that they are actually open to everybody, no matter their race, creed or colors. The two Black Bike Weeks, one in Daytona and the more famous Myrtle Beach event, do however tend to focus on sports bikes versus Harleys, which are typically the most common bike at some of the other big rallies.
