Picture Of The Week

I love well-produced great ideas. Like this real building in Japan whose façade looks like a giant cellular phone. Of course, it’s for an electronic chain. The keypad of this “phone” shows numbers indicating to pedestrians what they can buy on each floor. Don’t know if the building vibrates or rings when you call the store!

Hand Controls. Which Brass Type Are You?

Brass throttle housings for single or dual cables are difficult to source. To find them for both 1 inch (25,4 mm) and 7/8 inch (22 mm) handlebars is very rare. And to have the option to choose them in 3 different finishes – polish, satin and raw finish – is completely new. So, now you […]

I Bet You Never Changed Your Motorcycle Engine Oil.

I mean 100% of your engine oil. We all change our oil by draining and refilling the oil tank and change the oil filter. But we never get 100% of the oil out of the engine. We pretend like it’s an insignificant amount or it’s not even there. Yet there is more than 24oz. left […]
