They say the bikes are for the summer, but it can be difficult to use due to heat. Do not do it without a little protection!
In my tests for motorcycles have been very cold (-12 º C), while in the area of Medina made me promise to never ride like that without mittens, but in my store of memories is so bad that we had in a comparison of large GT Mérida Area in the month of July: it was so hot, the bikes were so effective fairings, and gave off as much hot air than necessary sanity wore clothes were a torture. We almost fainted. The solution was not shooting in shirt and sandals. Again, your estate or to go to the beach. How many miles you need one to have an accident, left the skin and change a joyous holiday for months waiting for the next cure lying iodine and bandages?
Especially in town, when the thermometer exceeds twenty, often left his jacket in the closet. But in the market and ventilated perforated not leave unprotected trunk and extremities. The need to incorporate a liner, you can remove and let one of his pockets, which act as windbreaks when cool.
We recommend the Bikers, there you will find a comprehensive comparative study of jeans whose fabric is reinforced with Kevlar sides and anti-shock protection. For the quarter, before a single jet, the best is integral with the front flip, which is safe and allows us to air up at traffic lights or at very low speed Read the rest of this entry »
Well, especially with body weight. If I ask you how your bike takes a curve, answer me that turning the handlebars?
Look at a camera on-board the world or your own bike: when cornering, the handle just spins. In fact the bikes do bending and rely on the inner perimeter, minor tire. Thus, they fall into the curve and “take”, and that we do with the handlebars, but with body weight.
Not everything is theoretically good begin now. I propose the first exercise of this “master.” Go to a line clear. A medium speed, release pressure on the handlebars. Push lightly on his right fist with the palm of the hand. Is the handle to turn left, and the bike will go there? No, you will see that the opposite is true: thanks to the gyroscopic effect (try rolling your bike wheel axle bearing her hands), pressing on the handlebars that you lean on your profile tire inner child, and the bike falls to the side, right! Practice, then, alternately putting pressure on a fist while the other strips slightly, so a bike tour.
The other exercise is with stirrups hold the handlebars at all, stomps on the left footrest. Will the bike right? No, this time on an abutment pressure drops the motorcycle on the side. Next year. No need to tighten the foot carries the weight of your body over the thigh in contact with the seat. See how the bike falling inwards increases with increasing the lever arm if you put the thigh increasingly outward. The last exercise is to combine this movement with the pressure on the handlebars.

And this last idea can be applied to those with mechanical knowledge and do not wish to set up a shop as such. All you have to do is have a motorcycle with compartments to transport basic tools for the repair and servicing of automobiles. The services you provide should specialize in fast service and low cost, such as to provide a few liters of gas, jump start, to repair a hose, make some quick repairs on any engine components, etc.
While it is true that roadside assistance services are growing it is also true that there are still a lot of cars in subsequent years have not engaged these services and frequently stop lying to their owners without knowing what to do and waiting a crane or someone to help them.
The idea is to provide the necessary assistance to jump-start the car and get to the nearest qualified workshop, therefore you must offer affordable prices that make competition with towing services and insurance.
You look, you motorcyclist at heart and beats you one?, Do not require further investment.
This idea is a mix, unfortunately I found the link to the company using folding bikes to offer this service but the idea is the same.
It is Guardian Angel, a company in Argentina that offers personalized chauffeur service for drivers who have gone for drinks and that they are unable to handle. This service also highly social being by preventing accidents and deaths also saves users to costly fines for driving while intoxicated.
Also users can be sure that will come home without fear of being assaulted or robbed of their belongings and even their car stolen, because the company provides high levels of filters for their employees.
All this with the ease of a call, you can pay a monthly fee in exchange of a number of services or make the call when required.
The idea of the motorcycle is to reduce the cost of transporting the driver to the place to pick up users, and that using a folding bike will arrive quickly, save fuel and keep the motorcycle on a trunk space. Di Blasi is one of several providers of this tip of motorcycles.
Since it was invented motorcycles have maintained that “not that” that makes them so attractive to fans of this 2-wheeled transport. But beyond the simple taste to recognize their usefulness and versatility than the fuel economy they represent.
This utility could not pass unnoticed in the business and now we present 3 ideas of which can greatly benefit.
Moto-Taxis to the rescue.
Imagine you’re on your way to a very important business meeting or presentation that you are the star of your child in the school play, maybe that trip will leave and you were late for the airport. Now imagine that suddenly you’re in the midst of endless traffic jams, what can I do, run?, Fly?, Expect, and what may be called a Moto-Taxi?
Bizztrip is a company that offers motorcycle taxi service to passengers, however this service can be extended to other needs such as those mentioned above. The passenger in turn only has to make a call to any of the riders who roam the busy streets of Denmark come to the rescue. And what happens if you go on your own car?, Well, every bike has 2 drivers, one of them take your car to where you will choose.
The bike tires provide the only contact with the ground, through the contact surface under normal conditions, and because of this they have a strong influence on the handling characteristics of motorcycles. Motorcycle tires have a round cross section to facilitate the desired inclination when a motorcycle tour.
Bike tires are available for many different applications, including: Sports, Sport Touring, Touring, Cruiser, Scooter, On / Off Road, Enduro, Motocross and Racing. There are tires designed for dirtbikes, tourism, sport and race bikes.
Sport / performance tires provide amazing grip but may last 1,600 km or less. Cruiser tires and “Sport Touring” try to find the best compromise between grip and durability. There is also a type of tire developed specifically for the competition. These tires offer the highest levels of grip for cornering. Due to the high temperatures at which these tires work normally use on the street is unsafe because the tires do not usually reach the optimum temperature so it has almost nothing to grip on the road.
Sport Touring – these tires are not generally used for high cornering loads, but for the long straights, good for travel around the country.
Sport Street – these tires are for drivers, “aggressive” street. These tires do not have a long life, but in turn have better traction in high speed corners.
Track or Slick – these tires are for track days. They have a triangular shape, which in turn gives a larger contact patch while leaning. These tires are not recommended for the street by the type of manufacture, and is known to have a shorter life on the street. Read the rest of this entry »

The Archbishop of Guadalajara, Cardinal Juan Sandoval Iniguez, questioned the campaign announced Subcomandante Marcos, leader of the Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN), who claims to have laid down their weapons and intended to travel the country on a motorcycle with a political speech.
The cardinal asked the leader to know the origin of the resources of his campaign, and considered whether it is walking, Mark can visit the new Via RecreActiva of Guadalajara on Sunday morning, where families spend their free time.
“That will tell everyone who means what he says, is important for all the people of Mexico know who pays, because so we know what the real intentions,” said Cardinal Sandoval and asked “to clarify what the purpose of campaign. ”
He also said that a march like the one announced by Mark is “harmless” because the people of Mexico are mature and can not be deceived.
In a situation reminiscent of the movie “Motorcycle Diaries” about Che Guevara, Marcos began this week in Chiapas a national tour that will conclude in June. Although it has not shown his face, Mark now calls himself “Delegate Zero” and on board his motorcycle is dedicated to taking pictures with a small camera, he says, used to document the report of his trip across the country.
