Photographer Alexey Kljatov takes incredible close-up photos of snowflakes in his backyard in Moscow.
“I capture snowflakes on the open balcony of my house, mostly on glass surface, lighted by an LED flashlight from the opposite side of the glass, and sometimes in natural light, using dark woolen fabrics as background.”

Not sure how “scientific” this study was but I believe it’s common sense that females are happy when riding…are they more “fulfilled” than women who don’t ride…again not sure how surveying 1000+ riders and non riders proves anything but good on Harley for planting the seed.

Freud asked, “What does woman want?”
So, we see in this video some KLIM dirt bike apparel in the making, there is supposed to be an ADV line coming out in March 2014 as well. Cheryl and I feel like we have been waiting a long time to see KLIM’s female gear and what exactly have they come up with for the gals out there to wear. I have said all along that I was confused as to why the R&D of this line has taken so long…

Wow….some New Zealanders get to traverse on their bikes South to North Korea…amazing opportunity and yet so sad…
Published on 10 Dec 2013
For the past decade, New Zealanders Joanne and Gareth Morgan have been living the semiretired lifestyle of their dreams, traveling around the world on motorcycles alongside a few of their closest friends. They’ve traversed all seven continents on their bikes, with routes as varied as Venice to Beijing, Florida to northern Alaska, and South Africa to London, just to name a few. Gareth funds his own trips, many of which he uses to pursue philanthropic endeavors, particularly in the social-investment space. He is able to do so with money he’s made as an economist and investment manager—one who has earned the reputation for criticizing unethical practices in New Zealand’s financial-services industry.

Now that the year will be quickly drawing to a close, we wanted to remember some of the downright insane things have have happened this year. From the deadly to the triumphant, 2013 has been filled with events that none of us will soon forget. Countless people were injured by bombings, civil uprisings and natural disasters. However, within that tragedy, humanity’s beautiful true nature shone through. These are 28 photos that you simply must see before the end of the year.
We humans sure take up and use a lot of space. I think I would rather live in the Maldives. Holy cow Mexico City!
Not only is Jeremy the owner of AltRider but he is one hell of a rider. Watch this video and see the new WC BMW 1200 take a tumble but more importantly see how the new crash bars AltRider has developed for this bike protects the fairing. So….Jeremy and Erik where are the uppers for the F800 crash bars? 😉
I think the craziest obstacle I have been hit with was a bird, not so crazy but scared the crap out of me and I felt terrible….on the road itself??? A garbage bag full of what I think were dirty diapers. So, nothing totally out of the ordinary lol. What about you?

Every one of us who rides should know the risks that are involved each and every time you swing a leg over a bike and head out. Aggressive, texting drivers and crazy traffic are just the tip of the iceberg, so you’re constantly forced to ride defensively. It often feels like everyone is out to get you and they probably are.

This is awesome no matter how you feel about the military or the USAF. Being from NEW YORK originally, I find this video very moving…and thanks too all for protecting any country.
