Video: Hitler Wants A Gixxer (For His First Bike)

Most of us are familiar with the Hitler video meme wherein the english subtitles are changed to humorous banter completely unrelated to the Nazi regime. In this parody video, Hitler wants a GSXR 650 or 1000 for his first bike, and his compadres try to talk sense to him about starting with something smaller and, well, Hitler throws a temper tantrum (naturally). “I want my 180 wheels! I want to beat Ferraris! I will have women pulling the balls out of my pants!”

Just under 4 minutes of amusingly familiar arguments. I especially love, “I have six months of dirt riding experience!”

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. 

Get your MuchoMoto MotoLady swag on… I just added a brand spankin’ new Wrench Girl tshirt to the shop! Two exclusive designs by Doug Werner of MuchoMoto; pick your color, style, and everything! Baseball tees, womens, hoodies and more.

Stephanie Kniebler gets a ride on the back of her buddy Kim Kenney&#8217;s CB360 while she&#8217;s finishing her project. Taking up the back is Chantal Smith on her sportbike. They ride in a sort of riding club, a bunch of awesome motoladies called &#8216;the Miss-Fires&#8217; (fb). 
I love this photo so much. We&#8217;ve got a classic smaller bike, retro full face helmet (the Gringo from Biltwell), a 3/4 helmet (probably the Biltwell Bonanza) AND a modern full face with sport bike. This is what it&#8217;s all about, people. Riding whatever you want, however you want, whenever you want!
Love motorcycles, and pay it forward! The meaning of life.

Ducati Elite II by MotoPuro Official Photos

Last week’s post about the Ducati 1199 café racer custom featured photographs snapped outside the Netherlands residing MotoPuro shop. This weekend I received a link to their official photos and press release, which gave me some more insight and background into this build. 

After giving Pandora a makeover I have newfound understand for all motorcycle builds, even the ratty ones with duct tape and zip ties in place of metal bracketry and hose clamps. Perhaps some leave me with a deeper sense of respect for the person who spent hours staring at the machine, but I can appreciate them all none the less. 

The lack of exposed wires and cables, the cafe racer style tail section that slopes into the existing lines of the Panigale bodywork… these are things to notice.

So, when a creepy guy comes up to you at the gas station and admires your bike then asks to sit on it, what do you say? Generally being ambassadors of riding, I&#8217;d bet more of you would let the guy park his butt on your bike than would turn him away. But perhaps you&#8217;ll rethink that now, or maybe you&#8217;ll just make sure the key isn&#8217;t in it. 
What I find fascinating is that from the photograph above it seems this dude fled the gas station wearing no helmet in a state that requires one be worn. I&#8217;ve witnessed how serious cops are about helmet laws in Oregon- you don&#8217;t even get on a moped and putt the block without one else suffer the wrath of the police. I&#8217;m fascinated he wasn&#8217;t instantly pulled over.
Jared Lee Hoffman, 28, oggled the motorcycle&#8217;s paint job and asked if he could sit on the bike. The owner quickly realized the decision was a mistake when the suspect took off from the Wilsonville gas station on his pride and joy. 
After about 13 miles of erratic driving that earned multiple wreckless motorcycle reports from drivers, a pick up truck yielded way to a police car with it&#8217;s sirens lit up and the thief, Hoffman, ploughed into the back of the vehicle. He was launched over the bars according to Sgt. Dan Kraus, a Clackamas County Sheriff&#8217;s Office spokesman.
Nearly instantaneous karma- for the thief at least, that poor bike is probably pretty beat up and I&#8217;m hoping the owner had full coverage insurance.
