Already month long trip, and Sash with Highway are not planning on returning to their home any time soon. About few days ago they have stopped at Gila Bend, AZ. If you live in Gila Bend, AZ check out Spage Age Restaurant along Route 85. The restaurant is equipped with items for space and alien life. Take a look what I mean in the below video of Sash wearing our awesome vest!

Kick the Tires: Tips to Ride a Motorcycle in 2013

The draw of the motorcycle is almost universal. The freedom of the open road, the air all around you, you on a slick bike, decked Motorcycleout all in leather. For beginners, it looks almost effortless to cruise around on that very powerful machine. However, ask any experienced rider and they will tell you that it is definitely not as easy as it looks. You don’t have to look like a Hell’s Angel to be a biker either. Many high-level executives, doctors and lawyers find themselves strapping on a helmet. GoDaddy founder Bob Parsons is a rider with a successful career, who now owns motorcycle dealerships.

2013 is around the bend and it’s a great resolution to learn something new. Hopping on a motorcycle can be the most exhilarating hobby in the world. There are many things to consider before taking off, such as the gear, the bike, and the test.

Suit Up

Good gear is not that hard to find. Plenty of third party websites offer affordable equipment that is still safe and will pass all the required tests. Looking for top quality gear, gloves, motorcycle helmets and other dependable companies offers great deals on motorcycle helmets, gloves and other essential gear.

Once you’ve got all your gear and passed your test, take time to get to know motorcycles before you go out and buy the fastest, shiniest one in the shop. Getting some practice in on a dirt bike is a good way to get familiar with the feel of a bike before you make the commitment and purchase one.

It may be tempting to jump right onto that 1200cc monster, but be reasonable. A beginner’s bike should not exceed 500cc. The Kawasaki Ninja EX250 or EX500 are perfect starter bikes, along with the Triumph Bonneville and the Honda CBR250R.

Get Tested

The U.S. has an somewhat lenient motorcycle license test, and sometimes that can lead to serious accidents. According to CDC.gov, motorcycle deaths have more than doubled between 1999 and 2008. After being in three motorcycle accidents, Bob Parsons says he rides like a scared rabbit. He takes a more defensive approach to driving by never being next to anybody and always watching whoever is behind him.

Hopefully, if you are starting out, you’ve got a nice friend who’s patient and willing to teach you the basics.

If this friend knows their stuff, they’ll tell you to get yourself kitted out before you even think about buying the bike itself. AGATT, or all gear all the time, is the mantra of riders who know what they’re doing. AGATT means jacket, helmet, gloves, pants and boots. All Motorcycle Safety Foundation riding courses require full gear.

Get Smart

No matter how dorky you think you look in your leathers, no matter how hot it is and no matter how cool you think you look riding in your flip flops, that won’t matter if you go down and potentially seriously injure yourself. Be smart about riding, and it can be one of the most exhilarating hobbies in the world. Once you’ve picked your bike, gotten your certifications and your gear, you are ready to hit the road and enjoy being in charge of the open road.

The Freedom Jacket

The freedom jacket from Harley Davidson is part of the 110th Anniversary of Harley Davidson. Harley riders are united by simple concept of a single leather jacket on a trip around the world. When the journey began the jacket had no name and there was no plan for a trip around the world. The jacket was just an ordinary motorcycle jackets worn by a rider. Mark Richer is the ordinary motorcycle rider who works at Harley Davidson as Chief of Marketing Officer. Mark rode 2,000 miles across China’s Tibetan, from Xining to Tibet. While on the ride people were taking pictures, and stepping outside to see if the Harley rider has passed by. Richard learned local custom following road 109. He also asked a local man to use his red paint to write something on the jacket that would express his thoughts about Harley Davidson. The moral of the story is that Harley Davidson can unite people all over the world. Whether you are in China, United States, or Europe Harley Davidson will unite you as brothers and sisters of Harley Davidson.
