Snow, Seventies, and Motorcycles

I miss riding and the season has only begun! Today was in the seventies, sunny, and the windows were open. The sound of motorcycles filled the air.

Only in Minnesota do you have snow, seventies and motorcycles!

Sony did it again!

Have you seen this video yet? It is to advertise their Sony 4K. It is so creative and made me smile. Check it out!

Here’s a look at behind the scene.

This one was done a few years ago – Sony Bravia – check that one out too!

What a creative company! Well done Sony.

Profile of a Female Motorcyclist: Meet Cellina

Serendipity. It means a “fortuitous happenstance” or “pleasant surprise”.  That is how I “met” my next guest, Cellina from  Los Angeles, CA. She also blogs at Motorcycle House.

Cellina on her ride!

Cellina on her ride!

Why did you want to ride a motorcycle? At first I loved to see the roads from passenger seat but later I felt I should behind the bars.

Tell us about your riding.  I had my first trip as adventure motorcycling when I was teenager. Blue smoke and rarely made it out of third. I did not care that combination of freezing northern wind on my face, the smell of burning two-stroke and the realization that I am on my bike I could go anywhere started a love affair with motorcycles that continues to the day. That was my happiest day of my life.

What advice do you have for women who ride or want to ride a motorcycle? Just ride slowly and carefully. You must have four eyes while riding a bike.

What is the longest trip that you’ve taken on your cycle? Last year when I had gone with my mother to the hill station. That was my longest trip.

Do you belong to any motorcycle groups? Yes

Do you have a favorite riding story? Yes. I have many travelling riding stories.

What do you do when you’re not riding? I write an article related to motorcycle ride and equipment.

Skully Helmets

If I’m allowed back on a motorcycle – with the approval of my neurologist of course – this helmet looks awesome. I want one! Have you heard about it?

Manifesto. Do you have one?

Here’s a great place to start!

 

‘Tis the Season

Well Minnesota is starting to defrost after a long, cold, snowy winter … did I mention it has been a long, cold, snowy winter?! Seriously, it was one for the record books with so many days below zero. 53 to be exact.

This past week the thermometer was creeping up to 40 F (4.4 C) and that meant motorcycles were hitting the streets. Many potholes, some wet, others salt and sand covered streets. Just this week I looked out my front window to see a man on a motorcycle with a woman riding pillion. Bundled up, but they got a ride in!

It is also a time to remind ALL drivers/riders to pay attention to the road and what and who is around them. It is not a time to text or do anything else that would distract you from driving. A friend shared this video on Facebook and the story moved me to share it with you.

In this story someone lost a son, husband, grandfather, friend, coworker and more just because they had to text. Another was left seriously injured. Let’s promise each other we will not text or do any other distracting thing while driving and encourage others to do the same.

I promise. Do you?

Happy International Women’s Day

P.S. I’d still like to profile female motorcyclists! If you are interested in sharing your story drop me an email at pamela(dot)court(at)gmail(dot)com and I’ll send over the questions! xoxo
