Abby and Brittany ride a scooter! Yes, these ladies are conjoined twins… and they don’t let anything stop them from following their dreams and trying new things. They have two spines and nervous systems but two arms and two legs, the right side and left side are controlled completely separately by each woman. Teamwork and communication get them through every task, even riding two wheels!

Lindsey Marie Hanson on her beautiful customized vintage Harley, captured hitting “The Snake” near Los Angeles, CA. 
You’ve probably seen photos from “The Snake” without even realizing- it’s a 21-turn portion of Mulholland Highway just above the Rock Store. “Edwards’ Corner” is the last turn heading uphill through the snake and is rather internet famous for capturing motorcyclists outriding their bike, talent, and/or conditions.

Stormie Ray pullin’ her dirtbike out of the muddy trenches at Woodland Bottoms in Washinton.
Ruts can be deceiving in the rainy climate of the Pacific Northwest- you’re all “I got this” then it’s more like “holy crap where’d my wheel go?”

The woman rider on the bubbly-future-looking electric motorbike featured on the Silodrome website definitely caught my eye! The Johammer Electric Motorcycle has a pretty impressive range of 125 miles (200km), uses center hub steering, and regenerative braking. (Regenerative braking is utilized in many electric cars these days, the engine basically assists in braking while also charging the battery. You can read more about it on How Stuff Works, & Tesla Motors.

Nope, not cheap… the full model (12.7 kWh) with longer distance as mentioned above will be about $34,500 (25,000 euros).

Mystery Girl Emma from Russia

You’ve probably seen photos of her riding around on sport bikes in heels and short skirts, shorts, costumes, etc. This the most circulated photo of them all, for sure. 

I’ve always wondered if she dresses up for photo ops around St. Petersburg, Russia, but otherwise gears up… and I found other photos that suggest that is the case. 

Making Stuff: Footpeg Coat Hook

Since I’m finally at the point where I can cut, weld, and grind metal… when I was inspired to make a coat hook this weekend, I did so. I can’t even describe how excited I am to finally be able to do some of the weird decor and art projects I’ve had on my mind for years. My welding isn’t perfect, but it’s getting better with every go.

Anywho, on Saturday I made a coat/helmet/whatever-you-want-it-to-be-for hook out of an old foot peg… it even flips up.
