Big Dog k9 motorcycle ride

The motorcycle in this video is a Big Dog K9 motorcycle with an S&S 117 in.³ fuel injected V-Twin engine. This video shows part of my ride from Orange County California to San Diego CA. The video was shot with a Samsung Gear 360 camera. Watch the Big Dog k9 motorcycle ride below:

This Samsung camera is a relatively small 360° camera that can be mounted using standard GoPro mounts.  I’m riding the Big Dog with the camera is mounted on the right side of my helmet.

I’m also using Corel Video Studio X10 to edit the footage and convert it from 360° video into standard video. Read more »

Smart motorcycle helmet

Crosshelmet – Smart motorcycle helmet

Motorcycles have evolved faster than helmets have . . . Well, that was then, this is now:
The CrossHelmet is a next generation motorcycle helmet with sound control  and 360° visibility that will transform your riding experience. Before you read any further, let me tell you what I think is the big downside to this helmet . . . And that is the estimated price of around $1700! I just can’t see a lot of motorcyclist spending that kind of money for a high-tech helmet. So if this company is going to be a success I hope they planned on very limited production or future price drop two under $1000.

The CrossHelmet brings state of the art technology to a safety staple that has remained stagnant for years. Our product combines integrated head-up display with 360° range of vision, sound management, and Bluetooth features to riders. It is the smartest motorcycle helmet ever.

360° VISIBILITY – We believe rear vision is an essential part of increasing rider safety. That’s why the CrossHelmet is equipped with a rear-view camera. The camera is combined with a wide-view visor that allows more road-vision and eliminates blind spots, allowing for optimum, 360° views. Read more »

Captain America Chopper Peter Fonda

Peter Fonda and the Captain America Chopper

Peter Fonda talks about the process of building the Captain America Bike.

The Easy Rider chopper inspired a lot of us baby boomers to go out & start building a bike.. Many couldn’t afford to buy a harley back in the days, so they chopped BSA & Triumphs.. when the 750 Honda came out in ’69, those became popular bikes to chop also… I would say Easy Rider changed a lot of people in our generation.

1933 Indian Motorcycle

Indian Motorcycle – Jay Leno’s Garage

In 1901, bicycle racer and builder George Hendee teamed up with engineer Carl Oscar Hedstrom to build a 1.75 hp single cylinder motorcycle prototype with a revolutionary chain drive.

This motorized bicycle met with immediate success, and the 1933 Indian Motorcycle. Indian Motocycle Company was soon formed in Springfield, Massachusetts.

Below is additional information about the original Indian motorcycle from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

The “Indian Motocycle Co.” was founded as the Hendee Manufacturing Company by George M. Hendee in 1897 to manufacture bicycles. These were initially badged as “Silver King” and “Silver Queen” brands but the name “American Indian”, quickly shortened to just “Indian”, was adopted by Hendee from 1898 onwards because it gave better product recognition in export markets. Oscar Hedstrom joined in 1900. Both Hendee and Hedstrom were former bicycle racers and manufacturers, and after building three prototypes in Middletown, Connecticut they teamed up to produce a motorcycle with a 1.75 bhp, single-cylinder engine in Hendee’s home town of Springfield. The motorcycle was successful and sales increased dramatically during the next decade. Read more »

How To Pick Up A Dropped Motorcycle

A demonstration of how to pick up a dropped motorcycle the easy way!

A Haley-Davidson representative doing this demonstration. How to tip your Harley back up when you drop it! Keep in mind that if you been riding a long time they say it’s not if you ever drop your bike but when you drop your bike!

On big dress bikes,. what really helps is the crash bars and bags not letting the bike actually get laid all the way over. When a bike is laying all the way on its side with no crash bar or bags to keep it at about a 45 degree angle it is definitely a lot harder to get back up. Read more »

Kickstarting a Motorcycle

Kickstarting a Motorcycle – I certainly remember those days!

Since I started riding in the 1960s I remember well kickstarting Harleys! You really had to have your bike all tuned up and be careful not to flood the engine. Even then, sometimes you had to jump on the pedal 10 or 12 times to get the engine running. This video is shows a gal kickstarting a Harley Ironhead. this bike or gal definitely has perseverance and a great never give up mentality!

It would be easier if she straddled the bike and stood on the left peg instead of kicking it sidesaddle.

You gotta kick an Ironhead way harder than a Shovel. She just ain’t heavy enough! Read more »

Your Last Motorcycle Ride

Your Last Motorcycle Ride

This is a very powerful video, never know when that next turn could be your last, but as said in the video, when it’s in your blood you can’t do anything but throw your leg over that bike! Very sorry for your loss.


Video notes: Patrick Bracelin has been my best friend since college. We did an initial interview with Patrick which quickly turned into, what I would consider, one of my favorite things I’ve captured on video. We made the haul to Phoenixville, PA from the DC area for the additional shots we wanted to lay over the video that we had already edited featuring Patrick’s interview. Read more »

Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Problems

Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Problems

This video delivers a lot of good facts and detailed information about Harley-Davidson motorcycle sales.

Harleys have a NASTY reputation for being UNRELIABLE! Every single person I know that has a Harley, spends more time taking it to the shop than they do riding.The parts for them are extremely expensive too. While I am on the subject of price, Harleys are INSANELY over priced! Your average younger person now wants something that just works. Honda, Suzuki, Kawasaki and Yamaha know that. That’s why they sell tons and tons of bikes. They are constantly cramming the latest tech into their bikes, and again, at a fraction of the price of a Harley. Read more »
