Rob Escalante lives in Los Angeles and rides on a daily basis. If you’ve ever ridden in LA, you know how insane the drivers and traffic can be. It can be scary dangerous for a motorcyclist, bicyclist, pedestrian, and even other cars. Today he took a moment out of his day to help an elderly woman. The story made me feel all warm and fuzzy, so I had to share. 

This old lady was crossing the street, but too old to make it on time, as the light turned green and cars flew by her without caring she was having difficulty getting on the sidewalk as it was way too high. I just didn’t have the heart to be another witness doing nothing….I just had to help. 

It only takes a second, be the kind of motorcyclist that makes the world a better place. Take those few moments to do something that will help create positive feelings about folks who ride on two wheels. It might save their life, and it might save yours some day too.

Born Free 6: The Ugly Ducling

Wandering the parking lot of Born Free 6 a couple weekends ago, I got excited every time I saw a cafe racer, tracker, vintage UJM, and especially Ducati. In a sea of Harley Davidson and unique choppers, they stand out like a sore thumb. Just like this custom Ducati 750SS did, which I dubbed “The Ugly Ducling”.

The good looking open clutch cover, clean body, tidy undertail exhaust and bare tank kept me looking. What… what is going on here?
