Honda CRF 250 Rally

I have just seen it. The Honda CRF 250 Rally might be a reality here en Europe/Denmark. I am so getting it, if it does. I have been looking for a small affordable offroader like forever.

April, 2016

I have just seen it. The Honda CRF 250 Rally might be a reality here en Europe/Denmark. I am so getting it, if it does. I have been looking for a small affordable offroader like forever. As some might know, we have some insane fee on our vehicles in Denmark. I meen, 150% taxes on cars and motorcycle. It used to be 180% a year ago. That meens I can't afford multiple bikes like a lot of the internet "celbs" I follow on the internet. But at the moment it seems realistic and possible :-D I'm will be keeping an eye on it, and hopes that it actually becomes a reality!

The new BMW G 310 R

This new BWM G 310R is an exciting news from BMW. It's there first bike under 500cc, and it has potential. Design taste is always individual, but I think it look great.

Honda announces new Africa Twin

The new Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin should be available for the public in 2015 or maybe early 2016. As you see, the engine has been upgraded to a liter bike.

May, 2015

The African Twin is a well brand of it's own dating back to 1988 with the XRV650. It won several races, among the greatest of all, Dakar. Later the public got a XRV750 edition, but we haven't seen anything new since 2003 from Honda. They have cross bikes and kind of adventure and enduro editions of other models, but no all-around-the-world bike like the Twin Turbo. It is therefore with great excitement we are looking forward to see and try the new twin. Will it be able to compete with the dominating BMW GS1200?

Is it bad to ride in salt?

No would be my answer. But there are many different opinion on the subject. You have to be aware and act accordingly. Wash and maintain your bike regularly.

March, 2015

It's spring and the sun is shining. Your insurance has kicked in again, but the roads are still covered in salt from the frozen winter. You are eager to go for your first ride of the motorcycle season, but your are not really sure, if you want to expose your motorcycle to salt. What do you do?

Danish motorcycle exhibition 2015 was a success

A success beyond every expectation they say, and I would have to agree. It was well crowded as the twice the visitors showed up than planed.

March, 2015

There was about 5.000 visitors to this weekends exhibition. A lot more than hoped. An exhibition was help years back, and it only manage to pull 2.000 visitors. With the recession the hopes was set realistic, and only a smaller hall was selected for the exhibition. I get there decision, and didn't myself expect to see that many visitors. I stood in line for over an hour, just to get inside, and for that very reason many didn't bothered to get in.

Prepare your bike for a new season

There are many guidelines, "rules", lists and stuff, of what you should do before you start the season again. Here is what I do. Not much really. Charge, lube and go.

March, 2015

First of all. The season is just defined by you insurance, and yes it is possible buy an insurance for the whole year. Most insurance companies here are per default only 7-9 months.

Harz, Germany, 2013

In 2013 I went to the Harz area in Germany for a small holiday. It was my first real holiday on a motorcycle and this it how it went, from the get go to arrival at home. beautiful trip totally worth it.

January, 2015

First some background story
This is the story of my first trip on a motorcycle. I love to travel to, but it still took me about 7 years before I went on my first real motorcycle trip.
I like to plan and have all safety nets in place, before I go anywhere. Any travel in or on a vehicle can be a bit unpredictible. What if the engine break down? You have a puncture. All these kind of stupid question.
In 2013 I went for it. It was only about 1000km away, and my safetynet was my mom, who was at the same location in car. I’m weak I know, but I am always working on it.

AD Koncept Kawasaki ninja H2R streetfighter

300BHP streetfighter, what will be next?

January, 2015

There will always be someone who can't get enough power, but 300BHP in a streetfighter? It would be impossible to keep down at the asphalt. One would obviously need all the assistance you could get, ABS, traction control etc. just to keep it under control. Maybe some wings like the real H2R to create lots of downforce.

Danish motorcycle exhibition

Motorcycle exhibition are rare in out little country, and usually it's more about the community or custom rides, than all the new stuff. That is about to change with "Dansk motorcykeludstilling 2015" from 28. February to 1. Marts.

January, 2015

Many brands are to be found under the same roof, when the Danish motorcycle exhibition 2015 is going off. It's told to be quite an exhibition for danish standards, but as always with the old school motorcycle community, it's difficult to find any real information about the content of the exhibition.
All the big brands are displaying and then some, so the expectations are quite high. It is expected to be able to cast a view on all the new announcement for 2015 like the new Yamaha R1, BMW S1000RR, Kawazaki H2 (verified) etc.

BMW cutting down on dealerships

I'm wondering what is going with BMW Motorad at the moment. They are taking the rights from several danish dealerships to sell BMW. From 2016 only one dealer, xpedit, will remain an official BMW dealership.

January, 2015

I don't really understand the idea behind the decision. Are they really believing so much in their brand, that they think they can afford to only have one dealership in Denmark. I know Denmark is a small country, but I know many who won't travel 2-300km, just to look at a bike.

Why do people ride motorcycles

The question is often heard around in the motorcycle community, and it might be a good question. It is not for everyone, and most people will stick to their car when they need transportation. It is something about the indescribable feeling of freedom when you ride.

January, 2015

Every biker out there will properly start with the freedom argument. It is difficult to explain, because it really doesn't give any more freedom than a car. You have to try and ride a motorcycle to understand it completely.
For one I think it has something to do with the open air. You a not locked in a metal box with the air conditioner setting the climate. You are closer to nature, feeling the cold, the warm, the wind, the rain, the sun and even the smells around you when you ride. It makes you more aware of the surroundings and more capable of enjoying them.
Another thing is the whole mindset of a biker. I think most bikers have a special part in their personality, that just make them enjoying riding more than other people. When speaking of bikers there a certain rules and guidelines to how they behave. That is in a friendly behaviour I mean! A biker will always help another biker in distress. He will always wave hello etc. I will make a complete article about it later.

My bikes

The stories about the motorcycles that I have owned and my current Hornet

January, 2015

I have had my license for about 7,5yrs and I currently own my 4th motorcycle. I thought a little background story behind the bikes, and myself, would be a great way to start the website. You can find the story for each bike in the top of the site. I think the best would be to read them chronologically as it became a little story in between. Every bike have had its positives and negatives, but I have loved all of them.

About me

Hi there,

I'm a male in my first 30's. I have ridding a motorcycle since I was 23 years old, and I'll never look back. My motorcycle is my day to day transportation, and have kind of grown to a passion for the indescribable freedom.

I work with websites and social medias, so I feel like I almost must have my own website too, where I can share my experiences, news and more.

I will promote you for a test ride or some products for reviews.
