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

Bicycle DIY – How to Make a Cargo Trailer for your Bike!

When I used to go to middle school about 20 years ago, I used to have a rack for my alto saxophone I’d carry to school.  It was very heavy and the ropes made my bike look like a bike SUV. (if there’s such a thing)

Anyways, here’s a cool bicycle DIY on how to make a cargo trailer for your bike, sorta like motorcycles.

The front half is an old 26er mtb frame that I had been using as an errand/beater bike. The back half is a 29er mtb frame that I had purchased online a couple years ago… it showed up with a bad head tube/dow

DIY – How to Make a Camera Mount for a Motorcycle!


I’ve seen camera mounts for motorcycles on the front by the steering but here’s a really radical DIY that shows you how to make a “rear” camera mount for a motorcycle that will fit on your rear peg, where normally a passenger would put his/her foot down.

This mount should support most digital cameras and small camcorders. You have the flexibility to position the camera either front or rear-wards. (or even install two at once!)

Be sure to put a small piece of tape over

DIY – How to Make a Super Scooter!

(Click to enlarge)

I am usually in the business of riding real scooters (that people call motorcycles), but here’s a Super Scooter that comes with GPS, display, and enough power to keep all your gadgets/devices charged.

We needed to use what space we had as carefully as possible while maximizing our airflow. The logical solution was a vertically mounted system of mounting plates with all the major components stripped o

Biodegradable Organic Eco-Friendly Motor Oil made from Cow Fat!

Well, I’ve never expected this to come along, a 10/30W engine oil for cars that actually produces no smoke when burned.  The label says 2-cycle so I guess it’s mostly for motorcycles at this point.

Green Earth Technologies, creator of organic engine products, has released their new automotive lubricant to its G-Oil line, a 10W-30 that has set a new biodegradability standard. The oil biodegraded over 90% in a speedy 9 days, blowing the 28-day rate of decomposition required by the American Society of Testing Materials out of the water. P

Chinese SWAT Team trains on Segways

Here’s a humorous pose of the Chinese SWAT team practicing on segways. (Or maybe it was a scene in the movie shooting…)

I really think this is a really good idea as parts of busy Chinese metropolitan streets will let the segway travel much faster than anything other than motorcycles and bikes.

As for shooting shot guns from a segway, I’d have to say you need more training though.
