TRASH

For many of us, plastic-pollution of the oceans is one of the most gut wrenching topics of our time. We have seen heartbreaking photos of animals killed by swallowed plastic waste or strangled by beer-can nets. And most people are not just sitting back and complain – but actually do join cleaning crews that pick […]

Helmet law

Just read this article (and the comments) about different helmet laws in different US states. I am ALWAYS wearing a helmet when getting on a motorcycle. HOWEVER ..

Alexa, you slut…

Congratulations…, Amazon’s Alexa is not only bravely tolerating your abuse, it is also making sure that Amazon employees in Romanian chat rooms have something to laugh about: YOU. “When something like that happens, they may share the experience in the internal chat room as a way of relieving stress.

Scott Englund “Never ride alone”

not too bad. Scott Englund “Never ride alone…” trailer Epic visuals and some good Enduro porn. Quote: “This is how I truly live – and most likely how I die.”  

lane splitting

I just read an article about lane splitting to become legal in Utah. And some funny comments about “jeleaus car drivers”  . Just go to France or Portugal and see how it’s done. Everyone daring enough to move on 2 wheels gets from A to B quickly and the drivers with 4 wheels are thankful […]
