***December 27th – Jan 5th 2012 (Scroll slowly through pics there are A few short videos so you can get a feel for NYC if you have never been there)  We both highly recommend putting this city on your bucket list!***

I will start off with our video I made on the plane heading to NY…it will fill everyone in about our sneaky trip.  BTW…we fly business class with mileage and could never afford to buy these tickets…that is why no matter how many times we fly on Cathay in business class we never can get enough.

Top 10 Riding Tips for Noobs | By: Troy Siahaan

This is a GREAT article not only for Noobs but for the rest of us who have been riding for years.  You can never forget what it was like to be a beginner and lose sight of these recommendations.  The difference between someone with riding experience under their belt is that all these tips become instinctual versus something you have to really focus and think about.

Taking a certified motorcycle safety course is an important first step when learning to ride, but then what? Our 10 tips are things the MO staff has learned from our years of riding.

If you want to be able to ride faster, just creep up on your limits and pay attention to what your bike is telling you. Most likely it will say “I can go faster,” but you’ll want to avoid the surprise of when it says it can’t. Continue reading “Top 10 Riding Tips for Noobs | By: Troy Siahaan”
