Ecuador - crusing along Vulcano Alley

Cruising along the Volcano Alley

Having just put my bike into the basement for winter storage I keep catching myself thinking about my time in Ecuador. I was lucky enough to have had the chance to rent a motorbike for a couple of days and take in the amazing atmosphere of Ecuador. No wonder why the nation’s motto is “Ecuador ama la vida” (Ecuador loves life) – the country is full of opportunities to enjoy oneself. I hope that with this article I will add Ecuador to your bucket list!

No credit = no fun

My experience started with finding motorcycle rental shop that offers their services in English. There is more or less one reputable service in the capital,

USA MC tour from Orlando to Key West

Motorcykel holiday on a Harley Davidson in the USA is the dram for many bikers. Follow Rolf and the good expeiences he got riding a brand new HD from Orlando to Key West. 

Rolf only had a few days available for the ride in the USA, but that was also sufficient to get a lot of good experiences on the HD.

Thursday November 27.th 2014 at 04h30 the journey started from Aalborg, Denmark via Amsterdam, Holland and Atlanta before the final destination - Orlando - was reached 16h30 local time. It was a long journey and a lot of airports.

Winter is coming

It is time to discuss something that many of us who live farther from the equator would love to avoid. Yes, I am talking about winters and potential ends of riding season. We might not like them but they come each year nonetheless. So, as I see it, we are better off making the most of the off season.

With this article I will try to discuss several issues that riders encounter each winter:

 

How to occupy yourself in winter while the bike is napping?

Starting the bike throughout the winter causes never ending discussions among riders. No one will stop you from hearing your beast sing once more. Just if you do choose to start it up, do it responsively – keep the idling for some time until the engine heats up.

Motorcycling culture

Is there anything else to motorcycling besides speed, wind and loud engines? 

YES - it is the short answer every time I get asked why I ride on a motorcycle. Sure, freedom, passion for riding and the amazing greatness of being on a motorcycle come to mind straight away but there is much more to it than that.

It is something bigger, something every rider feels while on the road, it is a sum of factors that I define as the culture of motorcycling.
Without any further arguments, this article is my take on what bike culture stands

Rokform test of iPhone case for motorcycle mount

Sunday, October 12, 2014 @ 14:40

Tourstart have had the www.rokform.eu covers for test for iPhone and to use this on the motorcycle. The product tested is the Rokbed v3. Based on a statement is extracted from Rokform on their web page, we found the covers quite interesting:

"Rokform is more than protection - it is a system. The range of cases are available for iPhones, iPads and Samsung Galaxy are all mountable. You can add magnet so it will stick to any metal, of use the BikeMount for mounting it in a car or on your bike with a click"

Tourstart challange

We had a look on the Rokform gear, and got quite interested in this. Then we took the challange and thought, why not mount is on a motorcycle to see how usefull it is for motorcyclists.
