Motorcycle DIY Video – How to Ride a Motorcycle!

Let me tell you a story of how I started riding motorcycles.

The very first time was at my best friend’s house up in Humbolt, California where he had a dirt-bike.  Well, to cap the story short, I didn’t know how to ride, didn’t have a helmet on, ultimately did a superman and sorta chipped a part of my leg bones after flipping over about 3 times on the ground.

As ugly as that experience sounds, I got the courage to actually BUY a motorcycle couple years later in South Korea, where I was staying.  The traffic was so bad, the only way to get around the city fa

Check out this video of non-circular gears that work harmoniously without breaking each other off.  What I am most interested is how well these non-circular gears will do when high-speed and weather-change are applied.

Let’s say you install these non-circular gears into a car that will run through over-100-degrees desert weather, will it manage?

video://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5YANSPDO3oU

This homebrewed Wii App called Wii Physics is similar to Microsoft’s Physics Illustrator and will let you test out your ideas before applying them in real life.

Wii Physics is a clever little homebrew app. You use the Wiimote to rotate, size and place objects on a stage. Pulleys, ropes, gears and joints can be used to connect objects together, and when you press the play button, a 2D physics system is turned on, causing the objects to fall and interact with each other.

Steampunk Cufflinks!

Aww God!  It’s steampunk cufflinks I will never wear!

Brand new style! I am so pleased with how these turned out. Vintage lucite magnifying cabochons were set over old letters and genuine brass watch gears, and then sealed on the back with lacquer. Then everything was placed into gold framed cuffinks and the final effect is really stunning. Everything shifts and changes as you turn them back and forth. Don’t wear them to any important meetings ̵

Well, I don’t think Bikes have to be more eco-friendly than they are right now at 50MPG (ahem….), but it’s a good thing I guess if your motorcycle can run on hydrogen fuel
