California biker events

Cajon Cruze – California biker events

The famous Cajon Classic Cruise is back again this year in the heart of El Cajon California every Wednesday evening from about 5 PM to 8 PM. This show is not only Hot-Rods and motorcycles but also vintage cars and racing cars. This video was done at the opening night for the show. The motorcycles have their own special parking area just near the center of the show.

What’s unusual about this show is that it’s totally free for participants as well as spectators! You can enter your motorcycle or Hot-Rod and actually win a trophy  at absolutely no cost! And that’s not all, right before the trophies are handed out they have a little local entertainment for the crowd.

Yes, if your car or motorcycle enthusiast  you definitely should go to one of the shows – – I mean, come on,  this is Southern California, so before everybody’s forced to ride electric vehicles and scooters, cruise over to the Cajon Classic Cruise and see some real muscle vehicles!

2017 Harley Davidson Commercial

2017 Harley Davidson Commercial

Yes, I really have to give Harley-Davidson a big thumbs up on this commercial. I think they did a great job not only promoting their brand but also motorcycling in general.

A huge percentage of the airtime was taken up with the blonde model rider. I think this did two things, first was implied that riding motorcycles is very sexy and second, and perhaps more importantly, show that riding big motorcycles is not exclusively for guys. Read more »

Motorcycle Synthetic Motor Oil – Worth the cost?

Motorcycle Synthetic Motor Oil

Although this video applies to automotive synthetic oil, the principles and conclusion drawn are equally applicable to motorcycle engines. I think this one video answers the ongoing question  of if it’s worth the additional cost to put synthetic motor oil in your motorcycle.

The viscosity of an oil is its resistance to flow. A greater viscosity means more resistance to flow, or a thicker oil. A lower viscosity means a thinner oil.

Before understanding the benefits of synthetic motor oils, like this Pennzoil Platinum derived from natural gas, we first need to understand the rating system used for motor oils. You’ll often hear 5W-30, or 0W-20 as ratings used in cars today. These are multi-grade viscosity oils, meaning their viscosity grade changes with temperature. The first number, followed by a W, is the cold rating (W stands for Winter), and this means the oil behaves like an SAE 5 grade motor oil (using 5W-30 as the example) while cold, but at operating temperature, at about 100 degrees C, it operates like an SAE 30 grade motor oil.

Motorcycle Gals

Motorcycle Gals

Who doesn’t really like to look at good-looking bikes and good-looking ladies? this is a five-minute slideshow type video of good-looking ladies posing with an assortment of good looking motorcycles.

Personally, I think it’s true . . .  good-looking big bikes attract good-looking ladies! I guess the same is true for good-looking hot rods or Lamborghinis or Corvettes!

Also, there can be no doubt that a lot of ladies are attracted to the ‘bad boy’ type image some motorcycle riders represent. Maybe the attraction also has to do with that adventurous spirit motorcycle riders represent  . . .  The exact opposite from the standard toyota prius/transgender bathroom/Disneyland masses.
