Sofi Tsingos has been doing a pretty cool project called GT Cafe for Cause. The idea is that instead of just building a cafe bike for herself or a customer, she built it for someone to win and enjoy in a raffle for charity. 
The tickets are only $25 apiece and proceeds go to cancer research. Check out the GT Cafe for Cause raffle page for more info.

Sammy Miller, world renowned motorcycle road racing and trials rider, kicking some ass on a crazy cliff. While camera angles can be tricky, from his body position on the bike we can clearly tell it’s a challenging/steep grade hill.
Miller was born in Belfast, Ireland in 1933 and went on to win over 1300 trials races and many other road races. His victories were mostly on Ariel motorcycles, but later he became the lead developer at Bultaco on their ‘mdern’ two stoke motorcycles.
