Pennsylvania does motorcycle safety right

Pennsylvania offers free motorcycle rider courses.

With spring’s arrival, PennDOT reminds motorcyclists of all skill levels that Pennsylvania residents with a motorcycle license or permit can enroll in a free course to enhance their riding skills through the 2012 Pennsylvania Motorcycle Safety Program (PAMSP).

All PAMSP courses are free to Pennsylvania residents who have a motorcycle learner’s permit or motorcycle license. All training courses are conducted on a riding range, under the management of certified rider coaches.

One Motorcycle Show – Portland, Oregon

The One Motorcycle Show is perhaps the only custom show in the world that embraces the imperfect. It’s about the essence–motorcycles that are custom but not precious. Stripped down and built back up, but probably not the way the factory intended. Hosted by See See Motorcycles and sponsored by Bell, the One Show is an annual celebration of utility, culture and creativity held in Portland, Ore.

Used Buells – good idea or not?

http://www.motorcycledaily.com/2012/03/stop-me-before-i-buy-a-used-buell-xb/

“Well, I’ve always admired the fuel-in-frame Buell XB series. About 18 months ago, my pal Ivan emailed that he bought an XB9S, bringing back memories of how much I enjoyed riding theses bikes. Erik Buell intended them as true all-around streetbikes—comfortable, great handling, light and fun to ride.”

I enjoyed this article about Buells, I might have to consider finding one, at least taking one for a test ride!

Motorado – Grand Opening today

Took the Fazer out for a ride today to Lakewood, where a new bike consignment shop, Motorado, was having their grand opening. They had the grill going with dogs and brats, chips, soft drinks, and beer. Nice little place, and the owners were very friendly. I asked Ron if they do service work, and he pointed me over to Supertune, so i’ll be checking into those guys.

If you’re in the Denver area, looking to buy or sell your bike, do check them out. http://www.motorado.co/

Beautiful day, had to wash the Fazer

Me and my helper washed the Fazer today. Started up with little trouble, after washing, took it to 7-11 and got some gas. 0.85 gallons worth! It could probably use a post-winter hibernation tune up. She’s not perfect, but it doesn’t matter. 🙂
