Signature Loans: Advantages and Disadvantages

Signature Loans: Advantages and Disadvantages

If you’re in the market to borrow cash, “signature loans” are one type of loans that you have to sign that may be recommended to you. Signature loans are attractive in a number of features, but you should be sure to learn more about them prior to making a decision to sign up for ones they come with important disadvantages, too.

Signature loans: The fundamentals

An important aspect of every loan is whether or not it’s secured. A mortgage, for instance, is secured through the property that it’s helping to purchase. The property is the collateral. If you do not pay back your loan agreement, then the bank may take possession of the property.

The debt on credit cards, however, isn’t secured. If you do not pay the debt the lender may pursue you or set up an agency to collect on you, however, it’s unlikely to take possession of the property. Signature loans are loans with no collateral.

Signature loans are also described as “character loans” as well as “good trust” loans because they are a loan from a lender usually one of the credit unions or banks that lends money according to your character and how you interact with them with your signature as well as a commitment to pay back. They usually have a fixed interest rate, as well.

Signature loans: benefits

When looking at the advantages and disadvantages of signature loans, one significant benefit is that they are quick and easy to access. The rates of interest that the lenders charge are generally higher than those for secured loans because the lender will be taking on more risk. However, they’ll likely be less than a different unsecured choice that is that of a payday advance.

Its status as not secured is a further benefit for the borrower since it means that you’re not placing any of your assets at risk. Signature loans are a great option for certain people when, for instance, they’re looking to consolidate multiple debts that carry high and fluctuating interest rates, like credit card debts.

Signature loan: drawbacks

Of course, there are disadvantages, as well. Some people aren’t well-served by these loans. They require credit checks for instance, which means that if your credit score isn’t great then you’re unlikely to get an appealing rate of interest – and you may not be able to get the loan at all.

A good rate because of a high credit score could be greater than rates that you could get from secured loans. If you own a property and you want to improve your credit score, look into an equity loan for your home instead.

Signature loans typically are with relatively short durations typically for just up to a couple of months typically, but not more than 4 or 5 years. If you’re looking to borrow the sum of $50,000, $100,000, or more, then you’re likely out of luck because they are likely to be that are in the $3,000-$35,000 range. (Again it’s because the loan is unsecured and the lender takes on some risk.)

There are times when you’ll need to be able to get a cosigner for the loan, as well. This lowers the risk for the lender in the event that it goes after the cosigner should you don’t pay back the loan.

What can you do?

If You think that a loan with a signature might be for you, take a look at it further. Get quotes from the lenders you prefer however, you shouldn’t overdo it. Be aware that every quote is likely to require a credit assessment and will show up upon the credit report, and can temporarily lower your credit rating of yours.

If you’re in the middle of a bad credit score at the moment and you are able to put off applying for a loan, it might be a good idea to increase your score over the next period of time like by making sure to pay bills on time, and getting your debt-to-credit ratio to your credit limit.

Additionally, you could receive a better rate by ensuring that the loan does not be extended for too long the riskier for the lender, and also by not borrowing too much, since lenders typically view smaller sums as being less likely to be repaid. Additionally, bigger loans bring in more money on the part of the lending institution.

The 2023 Honda CL300 Scrambler could be introduced


The new Honda CL300 and Honda CL500 will likely be based on the corresponding Honda Rebel models and made in Thailand.

The design may not be completely inspired by the 1960s Honda CL250

The design may not be completely inspired by the 1960s Honda CL250

Honda is reportedly working on a new modern classic scrambler-style motorcycle based on the Honda Rebel 300. But that’s not the only scrambler, Honda is also planning a slightly larger CL 500 scrambler that has been rumored for a few months now. In fact, earlier this year Honda filed trademark rights for the CL500 name essentially confirming the model. The CL500 will use the chassis and engine of the Honda Rebel 500. But that’s not all, a smaller Honda CL250 could also be introduced based on a single-cylinder Honda Rebel 250 sold in Asian markets.

The latest confirmation, however, is for the Honda CL300, with a trademark application filed by Honda in Thailand for the rights to the CL300 name. And Thailand is where the Rebel 300 and Rebel 500 are made. Meanwhile, Honda has also applied for the CL500 brand in countries like Thailand, Australia and New Zealand, and the two models could be launched closer to each other later this year as than 2023 models.

A Honda CL300 patent filing confirms the new model, likely to be unveiled later this year as a 2023 model, and made in Thailand.

The Honda CL300 is likely to use the Rebel 300’s 286cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder four-valve engine, which produces around 27.4hp and 27Nm of peak torque, with a top speed of around 135km/h . Like the Rebel models, the CL300 is expected to get twin rear shocks and will likely be based on the same chassis, with a taller frame and reinforced subframe to match its retro-style scrambler design. The design is likely to be inspired by the 1960s Honda CL250 pictured above, but more neo than retro, with modern touches. Honda CL500 and CL300 are expected to be launched in western market and international market later this year as 2023 models. Although there is no confirmation on the launch of these models in Indian soil, given that they will be made in Thailand, the prices will not be too high with the free trade agreement (FTA) that India enjoys with Thailand.

Honda’s decision to introduce these two scrambler models seems to be a direct result of the growing attention being paid to modern classic models around the world, especially in the entry-level and mid-size space. Honda already manufactures the Honda H’Ness CB 350 and Honda CB350RS in India, and Royal Enfield, the undisputed king of the segment in India, is making rapid inroads into this segment across the globe. Small and medium-sized jammers seem like models that are likely to catch the interest of consumers across the globe.

In India, we currently have the Yezdi Scrambler and the Royal Enfield Himalayan Scram 411, but one of the first models of the upcoming Bajaj-Triumph alliance products, is also likely to be an entry-level scrambler. If Honda decides to introduce the next Honda CL300 in India, this segment of scramblers could see a lot of action in the coming years.

Indian electric startup EVTRIC presents the Rise electric motorcycle


Electric motorcycles have established themselves in the mainstream, especially in Asia and Europe, where demand and convenience for these machines are highest. India, in particular, has become a melting pot of innovation, where new manufacturers are popping up left and right, all hoping to establish themselves as the next big revolution in e-mobility.

EVTRIC Motors, a Pune-based startup, is exactly that, and it hopes that with the Rise, its brand new electric motorcycle, it will attract young active riders to the brand. With a price tag of Rs 159,990 ($2,045), the Rise is on the premium side of the brand’s offerings, but it certainly has the goods to back it up. Let’s take a closer look, shall we?

For starters, the Rise is powered by a 2,000W BLDC motor mated to a 70V, 40Ah lithium-ion battery. EVTRIC Motors claims the battery can recharge from zero to full in just four hours, via a standard electrical outlet. As for performance, the Rise is capable of a claimed top speed of 70 kilometers per hour, or around 44 miles per hour. Its autonomy, meanwhile, would be 110 kilometers, or about 69 miles on a single charge.

Among the features of Rise is a built-in 10 amp micro-charger equipped with smart charging technology. Similar to how your iPhone knows when it’s already fully charged even when it’s still plugged in, EVTRIC’s smart charger works the same way, allowing you to maximize battery life. In addition, said battery is removable, allowing you to recharge it off the bike, as well as the possibility of having several batteries for longer trips.

As for pricing and availability, as mentioned, for the equivalent of US$2,045 you get a decent, no-frills electric commuter. The bike offers a greener alternative to high-end 100-125cc commuter scooters, as well as a sleek package that’s a bit sporty. It is available in black or white paint schemes, with EVTRIC accepting pre-bookings amounting to Rs 5,000, or the sum of $64 USD, depending on current exchange rates.

Harley-Davidson sells its first-ever electric mountain bike


Have you ever said to yourself, “man, I would give so much to be able to ride a real electric mountain bike powered by wonderful Harley-Davidson electronics and technology”? Nope? Neither do I…

Well, it doesn’t matter anymore whether or not you had that thought, because now you can donate around $4,500 for just that!

That’s right, Harley-Davidson recently abandoned the Series 1/MTN Switchtheir first full front suspension e-MTB, featuring an SR Suntour suspension fork, TranzX dropper post, SRAM SX Eagle 1×12 drivetrain and Michelin all-terrain tires.

With just engine power, this bad boy can reach up to 20 mph, hitting higher speeds with the help of the pedals. And, with its large battery, it can travel 30 to 95 miles before it dies.

So why should you buy this dope bike? I have no idea, I’m not a fan of electric mountain bikes.

If you want a bike that can get you up hills with little effort so you can enjoy cruising downhill, I’m not sure if this would be the best option since it only has front suspension ( I’ve tried going downhill with a hardtail, it’s really not that much fun) (plus, I’m not good at mountain biking, so my opinion probably shouldn’t matter to you that much) .

If you want a cross country mountain bike you probably shouldn’t buy one with a motor because that kind defeats the purpose of cross country mountain biking, and if you just want an e-bike to help you get around, I get a feeling that might be a bit too beefy.

But I guess if you’re a big Harley-Davidson fan and you’re a big ATV fan, this might be the option for you! I don’t know how many people out there who love these two things so much that they would buy a combination of them…

That being said, I’m waiting for a video of a squid going to a Harley-Davidson meet on one of those electric mountain bikes, only to walk off out of sheer embarrassment or get the boot by a looking Harley gruff boys.

Also, the bike ad below might be one of the funniest mountain bike ads I’ve ever seen, and I have to imagine the humor is in no way intentional…

Consumers have made card payments in the past 90 days


Credit cards are the most common credit products used by US consumers.

In fact, 62% of consumers have made credit card payments in the past 90 days, according to “The New Reality Check,” a collaboration between PYMNTS and LendingClub based on a survey of 2,326 US consumers.

Bajaj Pulsar EVs, KTM electric motorcycle on the maps : Bajaj Auto


Bajaj currently owns the high-end electric scooter Chetak which rivals Ather 450X, Ola S1 Pro and others. Bajaj has now established a subsidiary of the same name, Chetak Technology, to pursue its EV ambitions.

Bajaj Pulsar EV in India

Bajaj Auto’s senior executive Rakesh Sharma commented on the company’s EV ambitions and stressed that he wanted to maintain a healthy synergy between its ICE-powered portfolio and future EV products. Sharma says outright shifts in strategies aren’t necessary, and as a result, the company has reservations about going all out with its electric vehicle offerings.

Chetak Technology, which was established as a branch under the company’s umbrella, will tackle the electric vehicle space both at home and abroad. Sharma also mentions that while by 2030 half of new bikes sold will be electric vehicles, the other half will continue to use ICE power.

Bajaj has also planned a vertical and horizontal growth plan for the electric vehicle market. The executive hinted at sub-segments that could be created under the Bajaj Auto or Chetak Technology banners. It could be run as electric two-wheelers under the Pulsar brand while RE-badged EV three-wheelers can also be expected. It has also been brought to light that KTM is eager to make an electric motorcycle while Husqvarna will make an electric scooter. According to the company, its UK partner, Triumph, is not currently in talks for an electric vehicle.

Bajaj could adapt the existing Pulsar lineup to create electric vehicles that could use similar mechanical hardware and have little to no aesthetic differences. Bajaj could create a complete portfolio of EV Pulsars for the Indian market and overseas markets.

Chetak Technology is also planning global expansion and will primarily focus on ASEAN markets. The ASEAN market is a big space where Bajaj’s smaller capacity bikes could do well, as could scooters. With the stabilization of the supply chain on the horizon after the pandemic, Bajaj could aim for a significant share of the international market.

‘LUSTER’ Art Exhibition Features Realistic and Hyper-Realistic Paintings of Classic Cars and Motorcycles


AUBURN, Ind. (WPTA21) – A nationwide art exhibit will spend the next few months at the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automotive Museum. And it’s already attracted quite an audience after it opened in June – including an art collector, star artist and retired Indy 500 race car driver. LUSTER: Realism and hyperrealism in contemporary automobile and motorcycle painting are primarily on the second and third floors of the historic Auburn building.

“There are over 50 different works of art on canvas, which you will see throughout the museum,” explained executive director Brandon Anderson. Fifteen unique artists contributed their works for the traveling gallery. Anderson’s favorite piece is by the late painter Kris Preslan, of Lake Oswego, Oregon. She created “Cars I’ll Never Own, #15…Auburn” inside the museum. It’s a Cord 812 Supercharged with the museum’s iconic windows and the name of the city reflecting above one of the tires. “Art is multi-faceted – so are automobiles,” he said. “We are not just a car garage, we are something completely different. You step into the period of the Auburn Automobile Company in the 1920s, in one of the largest Art Deco buildings in the Midwest.

Earlier this month, Las Vegas artist AD Cook traveled to Auburn to see three of his paintings on display. “I’m that kid who drew and painted in first grade,” he told us. “Cars are one of the most creative and inspired things we can identify with – we all have a car, we all love cars. They are accessible. Cook began to hide elements in his paintings that you you might notice, if you look long and hard enough. In “Dream 103” there are 103 hidden skulls made of soap bubbles, in “Indian Summer” the chrome mirrors the park where Cook photographed it in 2000 , and in ‘America’, his initials are etched into the carburetor. “Cars, you know…they don’t happen by accident,” he added. “There’s a lot of talent and energy to glorify and celebrate them.”

Future Star Racing President Mark McAlister collects the artwork. He actually owns “Indian Summer” which has been on loan for several years as part of CHANDELIER. “It’s like you can just reach out here, and touch it – ride it,” he said of the paint, purchased at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in 2006. “We’re looking forward to it. have in the house so we can enjoy it…we just felt it was almost unfair to keep it all to ourselves so we were happy to share.

McAlister’s colleague is no stranger to cars. Two-time Indianapolis 500 winner Al Unser, Jr. made his first visit to Auburn to see Cook’s work and admire dozens of other pieces. “It blows my mind that someone can start with just a canvas and then make these beautiful works of art out of it,” Unser told ABC21, “and AD is awesome at doing that!”

CHANDELIER was curated by David J. Wagner. Here is the full list of exhibiting artists: AD Cook (Las Vegas, NV), Randy Ford (Eastampton, NJ), Allan Gorman (West Orange, NJ), Marc G. Jones (Loveland, CO), Cheryl Kelley (Northern California) , Richard Lewis (Los Angeles, CA), Lory Lockwood (New Orleans, LA), Robert Petillo (Hardyston, NJ), Kris Preslan (Lake Oswego, OR), Joseph Santos (Buena Park, CA), Ken Scaglia (Weston , CT), John E. Schaeffer (La Grange, TX), Guenevere “Moto Painter” Schwien (Portland, OR), and Harold Zabady (Camp Hill, PA).

LUSTER Realism and hyperrealism in contemporary automotive and motorcycle painting will be on display at the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automotive Museum through January 15, 2023. It is open seven days a week, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. You can find more information about what they have to offer here.

Motorcycle safety a priority issue for SC as crash death toll rises


GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) — Scott Wade says the loss of his son Hampton in 2018, at just 20, changed him forever.

“There’s a before it happens, and there’s a life after it happens,” he told FOX Carolina. “And it’s never the same. He left. I can’t bring it back.

Hampton was killed in a motorcycle accident.

“A guy who wasn’t paying attention turned left in his path, cut him, threw him in the back of the car,” Scott recalled painfully.

Despite his young age, Scott says his son already had a lot of experience on the bikes. He also wore a helmet, doing everything he could to stay safe. =

“We have a problem,” Wade said. “And bikers pay the highest price because they have the least protection.”

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety says South Carolina ranks first in the United States for motorcycle crashes per 100 million miles traveled; 4th in the United States for motorcycle deaths per 100,000 people.

“Nine out of ten times some of us know who it was,” Jane Robinson said. “And nobody wants to go to the funeral of another biker that many of us probably know and love.”

Robinson is the secretary of the Motorcycle Awareness Alliance, a grassroots advocacy group based in Anderson. She says they have been trying to raise the alarm on this issue for over 10 years.

“The ultimate goal is to reduce the number of accidents,” Robinson said. “Mostly the ones that end with ‘I didn’t see you.'”

The MAA slogan is “Look twice, save a life”. Robinson and Wade say they want tougher penalties for 4-wheelers when they are responsible for accidents, like the one that killed Scott’s son.

“The man who killed my son got a $230 fine and a subpoena,” Scott said. “And we had to fight to make it stick.

He says the problem is that many of these cases, when deemed “accidental”, are not prosecuted in the same way that a 4-wheeled vehicle accident on a 4-wheeled vehicle might be, especially when there is a death. Most motorcycle cases end up in traffic court.

“Lower the definition of ‘reckless’ in South Carolina, so there’s an understandable penalty that will make someone pay attention,” Wade said, when asked for an example of what he would like. see instead.

In the meantime, South Carolina Highway Patrol Chief Trooper Mitch Ridgeway says there are things you can do to be safer on your bike.

“I believe if everyone had to wear helmets, we would probably save lives,” Ridgeway told FOX Carolina. “Especially with these low-speed collisions.”

He also adds: you can sign up for a biker safety education course and put down your cell phone. Ridgeway says daylight saving time is when we see the most crashes on 2 and 4 wheelers.

SCHP is also in the middle of the 100 Deadliest Days of Summer campaign, so they are stepping things up while people do summer activities and travel on SC roads.

“We have more soldiers on the roads who really focus on speeding, seat belts, distracted driving and impaired driving,” he said.

“You don’t want to be the person who took a life,” Wade added. “You don’t want to be the family that lost a loved one.”

FOX Carolina state lawmakers have reached out to point to the hands-free bill, which was debated in the General Assembly this year but did not pass. They say overtaking would reduce many of the bad behaviors that kill cyclists and motorcyclists.

Proponents, however, say there’s still a lot more we could do.

10 Times Wrestlers Received Backstage Heat For Silly Reasons


No matter how talented a wrestler is, if his fellow wrestlers don’t respect him, chances are he won’t succeed in that promotion. The backstage heat has negatively affected many wrestlers in their careers, especially in WWE. Some lost their momentum because of it, while others even lost their jobs and careers.

RELATED: 10 Pairs Of Wrestlers You Never Knew Had Backstage Heat

If a wrestler has heat backstage, it usually means they did something they shouldn’t have done. But in some cases, these stars got in trouble for very minor mistakes. Most of them overcame it over time, while others didn’t do it very well.

ten Tyler Bate

At the start of 2018, Tyler Bate lost a series of matches in the space of a week. Dave Meltzer reported that this was due to him having heat backstage at WWE. Apparently he had fallen out of favor with WWE management NXT Takeover: Chicago in 2017.

WWE wanted to book Bate on the main tour, but the wrestler couldn’t accept their offer due to previous commitments. WWE also reportedly asked him very late to be a part of the show.

9 Enzo Love

While Enzo Amore was a popular character on WWE television, he was also very controversial. Amore was hated by most of his peers, including Roman Reigns.

On Keep it 100 with Konnan podcast, Enzo once said that he got a lot of heat backstage because of jealousy. While fans shouldn’t believe everything that comes out of Enzo’s mouth, if it were true, it was a very silly reason to get some backstage heat.


8 Matt the attacker

Matt Striker joined WWE in 2005 and had his first match against Kurt Angle on Smack down. Striker allegedly once told a traffic cop that Raw’s roster was way better than SmackDown (and he was on the blue brand).

At that time, the two brands were in competition with each other. When a veteran wrestler heard about it, he kicked Striker out of the locker room for disrespecting legends like The Undertaker, Eddie Guerrero and Mark Henry who were part of the blue brand.

seven The Miz

The Miz has become a veteran WWE wrestler now. He was one of the most reliable wrestlers in the business who would do anything he was asked to do. When The Miz first joined WWE, he had a ton of heat for being an underdog. Even after proving himself on the mic, The Miz still hasn’t earned everyone’s respect.

RELATED: 10 Things We Learned From The Miz & Mrs. reality show

He once got blasted for eating chicken off a referee’s bag and was even banned from the locker room by a certain wrestler for it. It wasn’t until The Undertaker asked him to use the men’s locker room that Miz started using it again.

6 Marc Mero

Marc Mero jumped ships from WCW to WWE in 1996. He was one of the first wrestlers to have a guaranteed contract in WWE. Mero said getting a guaranteed contract also opens the door for everyone else.

But initially, a lot of wrestlers were upset about it as well. Many talented stars joined WWE before him and they still didn’t have any kind of guaranteed income in their contract.


Sometime after FTR first joined AEW, they appeared on Jim Cornette’s podcast. There was an awkward silence among fellow AEW and FTR wrestlers when they arrived at the hotel the day after the podcast.

Most AEW wrestlers were mad at them for doing the podcast because of Cornette’s criticism of AEW. But Dax Hardwood and Cash Wheeler said they didn’t care.

4 Samuray Del Sol

Following Brodie Lee’s passing in 2020, many wrestlers paid tribute to him inside and outside the ring. Samuray Del Sol was among those stars who tweeted about Lee. He credited Lee for showing him AEW and giving him the strength he needed ahead of his first and only match in the company.

But he misspelled Brodie’s (Jon Huber) real name and got some backstage heat for it. Chris Jericho and Amanda even called him out on Twitter about it.

3 Chris Jericho

In July 1999, The Undertaker tried to end The Big Show with his promo, but it turned out to be truly awful. Undertaker explained how he took The Big Show to Death Valley and left him there with a Harley Davidson that didn’t have enough gas. He praised Big Show’s survival skills (he ate scorpions to stay alive) and his enormous strength (he slung the Harley Davidson on his shoulders).

Chris Jericho then interrupted The Deadman and called his promo boring. The goal was to draw heat, but the timing was unfortunate. While Jericho was supposed to call Undertaker boring in his promo, he still received heat backstage for calling him boring.

2 Mark Henry

In 2013, Mark Henry suffered a minor shoulder injury. Henry asked for some time off to recover from said injury, but it earned him some heat from WWE officials.

RELATED: 10 Things Fans Should Know About Mark Henry

They had planned for Henry to feud with Big E during the summer of that year and believed that Henry could have overcome the injury as it was not serious and did not require surgery. While Henry taking time off from wrestling changed some plans, his health should have been WWE’s top priority.

1 cesaro

Apparently, Cesaro had some heat backstage at WWE for a while over his comments about Cena vs. Orton in 2014. Cesaro said he was “sick of seeing John Cena vs. Randy Orton for the 500th time” and that he is excited about new talent and matchups.

Some WWE officials didn’t like this comment, and it caused Cesaro to lose a few matches in the company.

Interesting e-bikes for India in 2022


The e-bike segment in India is expected to see a slew of new models entering in 2022.

By :
HT automatic office

20 June 2022, 11:12

Husqvarna E-Pilen is one of the next interesting e-bikes that will come with a similar design to Vitpilen.

Electric mobility in India is mainly driven by low speed electric scooters in India. However, with the growing demand, long-range and high-speed electric motorcycles are also seeing increasing numbers as several brands are introducing their respective products in the segment. This year, interesting electric motorcycles are expected to be launched in the Indian market.

(Also read: The next TVS bike will launch on this date next month)

Here are some of the exciting e-bikes coming to India in 2022.

AE-47 Electric Hero

Hero Electric is one of the largest manufacturers of electric two-wheelers in India. After introducing a range of electric scooters in low and high speed segments, the electric vehicle manufacturer is now gearing up to introduce its first AE-47 electric motorcycle in India. The bike was showcased at Auto Expo 2020 and is expected to hit the market later this year. It is powered by a 4,000 W electric motor combined with a 3.5 kWh lithium-ion battery. This bike is claimed to offer a top speed of 85 km/h with the ability to accelerate from 0 to 60 km/h in nine seconds. In addition, it is able to travel 160 km in Eco mode.

Husqvarna E-Pilen

Husqvarna, owned by Pierer Mobility, is working on an e-bike that is expected to launch later this year. This model could have similar styling to the Husqvarna Vitpilen, which is currently available in India. The only major difference will be the electric motor and battery instead of the internal combustion engine. This Husqvarna e-Pilen e-bike should have an electric motor with a capacity of around 10 kW. It could be priced around 2-3,000,000. Also expect this to deliver high performance.

EeVe Tesoro

Electric vehicle startup EeVe is working on electric bikes and scooters. One of the company’s products is the Tesoro bicycle which was showcased at Auto Expo 2020. The EeVe Tesoro is expected to have a top speed of 70 km/h and a range of 100 km. The e-bike can be fully charged in 3-4 hours.

Three more new cars are coming to Gran Turismo 7 in June


A teaser from Gran Turismo 7 producer Kazunori Yamauchi hints at the return of a classic Suzuki hill-climbing legend.

It’s almost the end of the month, and that means a new Gran Turismo 7 content update is in progress.

Following the now regular pattern, a monthly delivery of new cars arrives towards the end of each month, and so far each comes with new missions or cafe menu books.

Series producer Kazunori Yamauchi tweeted the now-awaited teaser of three car silhouettes with the words “update coming next week.”

Suzuki Escudo Pike Peak

Rally driver and tuning shop owner Nobuhiro ‘Monster’ Tajima has raced the incredible Colorado-based event for several years in wild Suzuki-backed machines.

He first won the hill climb in 1995 with a twin-engine Escudo – the name given in Japan and some markets to the Vitara – before moving on to a V6-powered beast that also featured in Gran Turismo 2 and became a part of the folklore of the series.

In this famous model, he finished second at Pikes Peak International Hillclimb three times and competed there until 2016 with other Suzuki variants and then in an electric entry, scoring seven victories in total.

The 1998 Red Escudo seems to be the most popular request – although the exact year will be revealed next week

Race-modified Suzuki Vision Gran Turismo

Suzuki Vision Gran Turismo Gr.3 7 modified for racing

The May 1.15 update delivered a wild new Suzuki Vision Gran Turismo that fused a motorcycle engine with a hybrid system to create something I’d love to see in the real world.

Now it looks like a racing modified version could be coming to Gran Turismo 7. Hopefully Gr.3.

It would be a boon for the Suzuki brand, adding to the existing Swift Gr.4. This would make Suzuki eligible for the racing esports Manufacturers World Series for future events – although for the 2022 season he will not be on the roster.

Can hot days increase the risk of motorcycle accidents?


When the weather is warm and the sun is out, it can be very inviting to get outside and enjoy outdoor activities. One of them is the motorcycle. Generally, when the weather is bad, like hail or rain, fewer motorcycles are on the roads. This makes sense because there isn’t much a rider has on a motorcycle to protect them from the elements. Although on a nice day riding on the open road with the abundant refreshing and pleasant air, it can be the perfect time to get out and enjoy a leisurely ride.

Riding a motorcycle can be fun and exhilarating, but it’s dangerous. And while car crashes can lead to injury and death in a collision, the risk to motorcyclists of sustaining injury in a crash far exceeds that of car occupants.

If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident and have been injured or have lost a loved one, you can call the German law firm, PLLC, for more information and support under the injuries and Mississippi wrongful death claim process.

How can warmer weather lead to motorcycle accidents?

Warmer, clearer weather is generally ideal for driving. This is the case between sunrise and sunset, both when the sun can be so intense and it is harder to see. However, when it is clear and there is no precipitation during the day, the risk of weather playing a role in a car accident is reduced. Even if this is true, it does not mean that accidents, even potentially catastrophic ones, cannot happen.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2017 alone, 5,172 motorcyclists lost their lives in crashes. These incidents accounted for 17% of all fatal driver-occupant crashes reported that year. Yet, even though motorcycle accidents can have such high mortality rates, their popularity continues to grow. From 2019 to 2020, the industry grew by 1.6%, and consumers in the United States bought motorcycles 67% more than in 2019.

Specifically, when the weather is particularly good, studies have shown that weekends are when there are significantly more reported motorcycle accidents. It is essential to note that it is not the warmer weather itself that causes motorcycle accidents. It’s just that there are usually more motorcyclists on the road when the weather is nice, and that’s the weekend. More drivers mean there is more risk of accidents. Additionally, weekends tend to be when people go out and gather for a drink, which means drinking alcohol can also contribute to more crashes. Drunk driving is a dangerous recipe for injury and the cause of far too many fatal accidents.

Memorial ride honors Knoxville murder victims


Knoxville, Tenn. (WVLT) – Dozens of bikers and Jeep owners turned out at Bootlegger Harley Davidson on Saturday afternoon to honor a couple murdered in 2007. Channon Christian and Chris Newsom were the two victims.

“Good kids trying to do the right thing the right way, and they were taken away way too soon,” Channon’s father Gary said.

“They never caused any problems. They were just in the wrong place at the wrong time,” said Lori, Gary’s wife.

Christian and Newsom were kidnapped after telling friends they were going to someone’s house to watch a movie. Authorities discovered that both had been sexually assaulted. Newsom’s body was found near the train tracks between the 9th and Cherry St. Channon’s body was found in a trash can two days after authorities found Newsom.

“We can never forget Chris. We can never forget Channon,” Lori said.

But that’s why Shepherds RC rides for torque.

“It’s one of Shepherds goals that has always been and always will be to help children,” Gary said.

They want to remember the couple and continue to provide for the needs of the children in the community.

Donations and raffles were held on Saturday. Proceeds from this will go toward a seminary scholarship.

Filming the streets of New York is easier than you think


To say that “New York appears in many movies” might be the understatement of the century. Rotten Tomatoes even put together a list, New York’s 212 Best Movies, Ranked, and with over a century of movies to choose from, the 212 they’ve chosen are just scratching the surface. It’s easy to see why. The five boroughs form an iconic, world-famous city filled with thousands of intriguing nooks ready to tell stories. But with all the traffic and the millions of people thronging the sidewalks, filming in New York must be a monumental headache. Apparently not, according to Jean Pierre Kathoefer, New York resident and founder of Johnnypuetz Productions.

Whether in person or on a video call, Kathoefer is bubbling with enthusiasm, especially when the conversation revolves around filming, motorcycles or cars. It is easy to discern that he prescribes “if a job is worth doing, it is worth doing to the best of your ability”, for the passion is clear as day. But he was not always interested in cinema.

After moving to New York eight years ago for a job at an IT company, Kathoefer didn’t know many people and wanted to experience the city he now calls home. He turned to Youtube and started following vlogger Casey Neistat. Soon after, an inspired Kathoefer purchased his first GoPro, but the cinematic experience he sought remained elusive. “I started filming myself making breakfast and shopping for groceries, but soon realized that people don’t want to watch that stuff. It’s just boring. Kathoefer added, “That’s when I realized I had a passion for videography.”

“I had to find my niche. I love filming and I love motorbikes. I have ridden most of my life. So it made sense to bring the two together. His early projects were with motorcycle apparel brands, filming content for websites and social media.

Initially, most of the brands he worked with had small budgets, so payment usually came in the form of free jackets, helmets and gear. “It was good at first, but it got to the point where my girlfriend (half-jokingly) said ‘if you’re bringing home another jacket or helmet, don’t bother coming home “and that flipped a switch.” So, in May 2019, Kathoefer turned his hobby into a life and founded Johnnypuetz Productions.

His first major project was The Distinguished Gentleman which premiered at the 2019 Toronto Motorcycle Film Festival in Ontario. This was the first time Kathoefer had secured financing and was able to pay the crew. He opened a few doors. Filming creatively in and around New York takes practice, but once you develop the skills it comes more naturally, which shows through in the final product. Famous Porsche collector Magnus Walker noticed and collaborated with Kathoefer to film Big Apple Outlaw. It is currently Walker’s most viewed Youtube video, with 512,000 views.

It’s not just the famous subject that helped the short film rack up so many views. Kathoefer and his crew used their motorcycling skills and combined their creativity with their knowledge of city streets to film a fast and energetic hit that even non-car enthusiasts could enjoy.

The part that requires the most skill is filming and editing. The easiest part, says Kathoefer, is working in New York. “It’s actually ‘cinema-friendly’. New York loves when people film in the city because it acts as free marketing for the city itself. The city supports creative projects and therefore NYC is a hub for creatives. »

Depending on the size of the shoot, Johnnypuetz Productions has an arsenal of support vehicles. From the crew’s own motorcycles, a Zero electric motorcycle and ATV, to a Tesla Model Y equipped with a motorized camera crane. “For large projects, permits are required. To deal with NYC traffic, we will work with NYPD. All you need is a permit, which is relatively easy to obtain. However, Kathoefer admits, “It helps to know someone at the NYC permit office,” but says it’s still available.

“If it’s necessary, you can get an escort from the NYPD, plot an approved route, and they escort you through traffic. There is an option to close a street, but it is more complicated and much more expensive.

When it comes to physical filming in New York, Johnnypuetz Productions has the proper staff and street sense. “Most of our crews are experienced drivers which is great for shooting car-to-car and weaving through traffic. We also have a long list of locations to choose from and present to customers as options. , reducing the time spent searching for locations.”

If Kathoefer’s history and catalog of work proves anything, it’s that anyone can pick up a camera and start filming, but to be proficient and produce high-caliber video work, you need a team like Johnnypuetz Productions. Filming in New York is easier than you think. Making an entertaining short film that has garnered over half a million views on Youtube is a whole different story.

Police make progress on city’s ATV/motorcycle ordinance


June 16 – WILLIMANTIC/WINDHAM – Amid recent reports of motorcycles being driven onto American Legion grounds over the weekend, Windham City Manager Jim Rivers said police made progress in enforcing the city’s ATV/motorcycle ordinance.

“It’s a process,” Rivers said at the June 7 city council meeting. “The police spend a lot more time on it and use the order where appropriate.”

The ordinance was approved by the city council in December and went into effect on January 20. It is designed to combat illegal ATV/Motorcycle activity, which has been a problem for years and has caused several accidents.

“What the ATV ordinance did was it increased the fines to make them sting more when we get one of these lawbreakers, but the law was already there,” Rivers said.

Under state law, fines for illegal use of ATVs and snowmobiles range up to $250 for each violation. Under the approved order, fines range from $1,000 for the first offense to $2,000 for the third and subsequent offenses.

The order also includes a $100 fine that would be levied for the first offense and subsequent offenses against owners and operators of gas stations and motor vehicles that sell fuel to operators of ATVs and dirt bikes.

Windham City Council chairwoman Dawn Niles said she felt the situation was “getting worse”, noting there had been people passing through the East Brook shopping center in Mansfield recently. She also mentioned the motocross activity at American Legion Little League grounds over the weekend.

Rivers said Tuesday that locals reported the activity to him, but he did not have details. He said the city is “making progress” but other situations arise, such as burglaries and serious accidents, the police have to deal with.

“It’s important but sometimes we have other priorities and the police don’t have unlimited resources,” Rivers said.

The Willimantic Police is responsible for enforcing the ordinance in Willimantic, while the State Police is responsible for enforcing the ordinance in the villages of Windham.

How the 2022 Harley-Davidson Road Glide Limited compares to the Indian Pursuit Limited Premium


The 2022 Harley-Davidson Road Glide Limited is a perfect competitor for the Indian Motorcycles Pursuit Limited Premium, two prestigious motorcycles that feature a similar profile with many additional features and luxury options.

These two heavyweights belong to the same category of motorcycles – luxury touring, but stand apart to share with you when it comes to choosing between the two. The Road Glide Limited has plenty of features to make its engine more efficient and effective while making the experience safe and fun with sound safety and infotainment features, respectively.

Most aspects are comparable, although the Indian motorcycles delivering more horses wrapped in luxury accommodations with its Pursuit Limited Premium. Read on to find out the similarities and differences between these two luxury passenger cars and which one stands out as the better one.

The 2022 Harley-Davidson Road Glide Limited takes the battle to the Indian Pursuit Limited Premium in this ironclad American touring showdown.

Harley-Davidson Road Glide Limited is a solid ride

When Harley-Davidson created Road Glide Limited, it was well received and had many notable features. At 3000 rpm, it produces 122 lb-ft of torque and 93 hp, and it gets 43 MPG in fuel economy. Additionally, the Road Glide Limited features a 4.5-inch stroke and a 10.5:1 compression ratio.

Its engine is a Twin-Cooled Milwaukee-Eight 114, and it features Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI) for increased efficiency. Lights are ubiquitous on this model, making it easy to be seen at night and providing riders with some safety and helping them relax while enjoying a nighttime ride. Its multiple LED bulbs are 40 or 60 watt bulbs, more specifically, low beam is 40 watt and high beam is 60 watt.

The bike is equipped with rear LED indicators, as well as rear lights, brake lights and front signal lights. The bike is equipped with a main drivetrain and a 49mm double bend valve front fork. In terms of braking, the front brakes are dual floating rotors, while the rear brake is a fixed rotor.

Indian Motorcycles Pursuit Limited Premium steps up a gear

The Pursuit Limited Premium is, as the name suggests, a premium package that offers more than the base model. It has a stroke of 3.79 inches, which is slightly shorter than that of the Harley-Davidson Road Glide Limited. It has a higher compression ratio of 11.0:1. Its liquid-cooled Power Plus engine features an electronic fuel injection system with closed-loop fuel injection, and the engine produces 128 lb-ft of torque at 3800 rpm.

Moreover, the engine boasts 122 HP, which is much more than its Harley-Davidson counterpart. The Pursuit Limited Premium’s braking system is a dual radial four-piston caliper up front with a single two-piston caliper in the rear. A front fork suspension is used, with an inverted telescopic fork and a diameter of 43 mm.

Like the Harley-Davidson Road Glide Limited, it has many gauges to feed rider information. Additionally, alerts are provided via LEDs, such as cruise control, high beam on or off, turn signals, ABS, check engine, low oil pressure, battery and low fuel level.

2022 HD Road Glide Limited Packs Healthy Luxury Features

The Harley-Davidson Road Glide Limited has a decent number of nice infotainment features and secure safety features. With four 5.25-inch speakers tuned to play AM or FM radio, riders can enjoy whatever music or audio they want. These speakers feature 25 watts per channel and there is a USB connection so riders can plug in SD cards, MP3 players and thumb drives.

If that’s not enough for a pilot’s enjoyment, a Sirius XM upgrade is available in Canada and the United States. Bluetooth is standard, allowing riders to make and take calls hands-free, allowing them to focus on riding the bike and watching the road ahead.

Additionally, to give drivers a sense of security, anti-lock brakes (ABS) and electronic braking (ELB) are both included. Cruise control is also a standard option. Unfortunately, these options don’t come cheap; depending on the color palette, prices range from $28,729 to $31,874.

Indian Pursuit Limited Premium shines on the tech front

One of the advantages of the Indian Pursuit Premium is an elaborate infotainment package. It’s not as music- or audio-focused for entertainment as the Road Glide Special, but it offers an elevated experience in terms of luxury and functional connectivity. Apple CarPlay integration is part of the package, along with traffic and weather updates, plus navigation and maps. In addition to this, the 2022 models of the Indian Pursuit Limited Premium also offer a one-year free trial of RIDE COMMAND+, although pricing will apply once the trial period ends.

There is, however, a 200-watt audio system with Bluetooth and USB options. That said, a heated seat is also part of the package to help riders stay warm during rides in the colder months. In terms of safety, there are several driving modes, as well as cruise control and ABS.

The Indian also has a 35.8 gallon storage capacity, keyless ignition, heated grips and a power windshield, all of which are features that aren’t nearly as important or non-existent as the Road Glide Special. Unfortunately, price is also an element here: depending on the color, the Pursuit Limited Premium can cost between $14,999 and $16,399.

Road Glide Limited Vs Pursuit Limited Premium: The Ultimate Head-to-Head of Luxury Touring

The Indian takes the podium in terms of performance and driving dynamics. When it comes to luxury features, the Harley and the Indian are neck and neck here. The choice comes down to its price which, again, is aggressive in the case of the Pursuit Limited Premium. The Road Glide Limited is on the premium side. So if pricing is the deciding factor, then the Pursuit Limited Premium makes all the more sense.

Electric motorcycle brand Horwin presents the 2022 model range


Horwin is a relatively new electric motorcycle manufacturer that produces electric vehicles designed primarily for urban mobility. The company has been working hard to bring innovation to the increasingly popular, but very experimental, electric motorcycle market. In fact, in 2020, the previous version of the EK3 electric scooter received the Red Dot design award. Now, in 2022, the company continues to innovate by further refining its model range to offer some of the best options in the urban mobility industry.

For starters, the Horwin EK3 is making a comeback. It retains its rounded features, giving the scooter a sense of simplicity and vintage inspiration. Meanwhile, LED lights that criss-cross the shield and tail horizontally give the bike a futuristic edge. The engine produces 6.2 kW of power and can propel the vehicle up to 60 kilometers per hour. According to Horwin, the 40 Ah battery is detachable and recharges in four hours. For added convenience, the underseat compartment is quite spacious and can hold both a spare battery and a helmet. There are four color options: white, red, matte black and grey. The 2022 EK3 has a price of 4,940 euros (5,286 USD).

If the EK3 is too much for you and you want something much simpler and cheaper, the EK1 might be your best alternative. It’s the entry level model, a smaller scooter than the EK3, and it’s L1e certified. Due to its cheaper price, more user-friendly performance, and colorful hues of orange, blue, white, and black, it is aimed at a younger audience. The seating position is upright and comfortable, and the tiny proportions make it a true city dweller. The EK1’s electric motor is rated at 2.8 kW, giving it a top speed of 28 miles per hour. The battery, like the EK3, is a removable 40 Ah unit with the same charging times as the EK3. The price is set at 3,940 euros, or about $4,215.

The SK3 completes the Horwin range of scooters. The angular lines, the high shield and the twin seat of the scooter give it a sporty look. In terms of performance, it can reach 56 miles per hour and has a range of 50 miles. The 36Ah battery recharges in 4h30. The container accommodates a second battery, increasing the advertised range to 100 miles. It costs 4,640 euros (about 4,964 USD) and is available in matte black, gold and blue.

Electric motorcycle brand Horwin presents the 2022 model range

Horwin also makes a cafe racer style variant known as the CR6. This beautiful electric motorcycle is L3e legal, easy to use and weighs only 134 pounds. Its electric motor produces 182 lb-ft of torque, allowing it to reach a top speed of 60 miles per hour. The battery has a capacity of 55Ah and recharges in 3 hours, however it is not detachable. Despite its usual motorcycle appearance, the CR6 sports a glove pocket in its fake tank which also houses a USB port. It costs 6,640 euros, which is equivalent to approximately 7,104 USD.

BMW is working on an electric boxer motorcycle


BMW released its second electric scooter earlier this year in the CE 04and has clearly indicated its intention to produce more electric two-wheelers in the near future. Oliver Zipse, chairman of the board of BMW AG, recently went so far as to say that BMW Motorrad will introduce a new electric two-wheeler every 18 to 24 months, with the next model expected to arrive in 2023.

While the first models will be scooters or “urban mobility vehicles”, BMW should eventually add electric motorcycles to its range. The company has already registered several trademarks for the names DC 01 to DC 09 for use with motorcycles, in the hope that they will be electric.

And now, thanks to a recently published patent application, we have proof that BMW is working on an electric motorcycle that borrows a key element from its heritage: a boxer engine.

We’ve already seen an example of an electric BMW Boxer when he revealed the Concept Vision DC Roadster (picture above). Presented as a design exercise, the concept was not intended to become a production model but rather to explore how BMW could produce an electric motorcycle that would stay true to the brand’s tradition.

The concept had a large battery that made up most of the chassis with two cooling elements protruding from either side, giving it the same general shape as a BMW Boxer engine. Instead of two opposed engine cylinders, the Vision DC Roadster had the side members housing cooling ribs and fans. The protruding elements were even movable, designed to extend slightly when the engine is started.

While the concept was not intended for production, the idea of ​​having a battery and its cooling elements forming the shape of a Boxer engine remained with BMW, as revealed in the new patent application.

The patent describes a CPU case with two protruding cooling elements that form a shape resembling a boxer engine. Unlike the Vision DC Roadster, these elements are fixed heat sinks made of aluminum and covered with cooling fins, resembling the cylinders of an air-cooled boxer engine.

A front view of the bike depicts a shape similar to BMW’s boxer-engined models.

One of the “cylinders” would house components such as the inverter and load electronics. The other would contain parts of an internal liquid cooling system for the battery and motor. With this arrangement, the two protruding elements would be cooled by the airflow of the moving motorcycle, in the same way that the cylinder of a boxer engine is cooled.

Much of the patent describes the size and positioning of the two “cylinders”. The overall width of each “cylinder” (BK in Fig 2) is about 40-50% the width of the width of the central body (Bg). In total, this body forms about 75% of the maximum width of the motorcycle measured by its handlebars (BM in Figure 1 above).

Figure 2 shows a view of the front of the motorcycle, showing only the central body and the two projecting “cylinders”.

The protrusions would each be about a third of the height of the main body and would be positioned at about the same height as the cylinders of a Boxer. This would put them in a similar position in front of a rider’s legs and at a height that would provide enough ground clearance for a decent lean angle.

If the patent results in a production model (which in itself is not certain), BMW would have an electric motorcycle that pays homage to its past and its signature Boxer engine.

Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard trial live updates: Breaking news today, verdict reactions, appeal…


Jeff Beck reveals details of album with Depp

Johnny Deppwho won a near-total victory in a defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife Amber Heard last week, and English guitarist Jeff Beck will release an album of mostly covers next month after going on stage together.

Called “18”, the 13-track album will be released on July 15.

“It’s almost like you’ve gone through a record store and you’ve gone from genre to genre,Beck told Reuters on Friday, saying they started working on the album at Depp in France.

“There’s a couple Motown, there’s a couple Beach Boy covers on … Sounds pretty good for a home recording. Depp and Beck have been recording music since 2019 for the album, which also features two original songs by Depp, who has his own band, the Hollywood Vampires. A song is about actress and inventor Hédy Lamarr.

“We slowly built songs that we love. We didn’t really design,” Beck said.

“He has…a very distinctive (voice) and he gets music and I hope I’ve allowed him to open up to songs that he wouldn’t otherwise be interested in.”

Beck said: “I hope I helped him a bit to have some kind of understanding and closeness and a joke, and to keep having fun.”

Beck was speaking on the sidelines of a blue plaque event honoring the late guitarist Jimi Hendrix at the London Hard Rock Hotel. The building was formerly the Cumberland Hotel, where Hendrix often resided before his death in 1970.

“It was one of the biggest voids left in rock ‘n’ roll,” says Beck.

Smartphone Financing – Ways to get your hands on the latest iPhone


As smartphones are getting expensive day by day, payment options have also increased over time. If you’re about to get your hands on your favorite Apple iPhone or the latest Samsung Galaxy, there are several options for financing a cell phone purchase transaction. If you don’t have enough money to pay for a new smartphone, you can pay for it over an agreed period of time via monthly installments or use your credit card to charge for the transaction. Instead of paying in cash, smartphone financing (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ready) offers many benefits, such as getting credit card rewards, getting good credit, and getting more time to pay it off. Before you begin, you need to do proper research to determine which method is appropriate and beneficial for you.

There are several ways to make buying a smartphone more affordable if you don’t have enough cash to pay upfront and some of the best smartphone financing options are featured below in this article.

Financing via a new carrier

If you’re excited to enjoy the advanced features of a recently launched smartphone and don’t mind switching carriers, you can finance a new cell phone through a new carrier sign-up deal. Depending on the smartphone maker and service provider, you can get the full price of a covered phone or take advantage of a low, affordable monthly payment plan. Before switching, carefully understand the offer and check the benefits you will receive by signing up for a new carrier. Some operators also offer new customers benefits other than financing, such as free internet, calls and SMS.

Builder financing

Financing an unlocked smartphone is easier with manufacturer financing, as giant smartphone manufacturers like Apple and Samsung offer affordable financing plans to their customers. They work with different financial institutes and banks to offer interest-free installment plans. Samsung offers such plans in conjunction with TD Bank, and Apple is working with Citizen One to introduce smartphone financing programs. Some manufacturers are also working with credit card companies to reduce the total cost of their smartphones for their new customers. However, one must have good credit to qualify for such plans.

Get a personal loan

Getting a personal loan is one of the best and most efficient ways to finance a smartphone purchase transaction. There are several companies like Payday LV who offer personal loans on better terms. A good credit score can help you get competitive interest rates and easier repayment terms. Before applying for a loan, make sure that you submit a loan application to a lender that offers a low enough loan amount that can be used to cover the cost of a smartphone. You can also compare different lenders and banks to choose the right option according to your budget.

Retail financing

Some e-commerce stores and retailers like Best Buy also offer smartphone finance programs to help people buy their favorite smartphones without facing financial hassles. They usually offer interest-free promotional periods of up to 2 years or more to pay off the cost of a smartphone. Some also help consumers get personal loans on better terms so that they can easily finance a cell phone with a lower interest rate. Consumers with a strong credit history can easily qualify for 0% APR finance programs.

Credit card

If you don’t want to switch carriers or aren’t interested in a personal loan, you can always finance a smartphone with your credit card. Since credit cards are known as the most expensive form of smartphone financing, some credit card providers are working with smartphone manufacturers to offer great deals like 0% introductory APR or financing plans of smartphone without interest. However, one must choose the right credit card with enticing benefits to finance a new mobile phone. Getting a card with 0% APR with an introductory period of 16-24 months is a great way to cover the costs of your new smartphone.


In this world full of funding opportunities, anyone can buy a new smartphone full of advanced features. However, choosing the right smartphone financing option can be daunting for beginners. Depending on the personal credit score and financial capabilities, one should opt for an affordable financing solution with better repayment terms.

Premixed Jack and Coke is on sale


It’s a Jack and Coke with no bartender required.

Coca-Cola Co. announced on Monday that it is partnering with Brown-Forman Corp., the maker of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey, to sell premixed cocktails. The canned Jack and Coke will be sold worldwide after launching in Mexico later this year. A sugar-free version will also be available.

“This relationship brings two classic American icons together to deliver a taste experience consumers love in a cohesive, convenient and portable way,” said Brown-Forman President and CEO Lawson Whiting.

The move comes amid strong global sales of ready-to-drink alcoholic blends, including hard seltzers like White Claw. Global consumption of ready-to-drink beverages jumped 26% in 2020 and 14% last year, according to IWSR Drinks Market Analysis, an alcohol market research firm. By way of comparison, global consumption of all alcohols increased by 3%.

Brown-Forman, based in Louisville, Ky., has been making ready-to-drink cocktails since 1994, when it launched fortified lemonade, cola and apple juice in Australia.

Atlanta-based Coca-Cola has been slower to add alcoholic beverages to its portfolio of 200 brands since selling a California winery it owned in the early 1980s.

Coke launched Lemon-Dou, its first ready-to-drink alcoholic beverage, in 2018 in Japan. More recently, he launched Topo Chico Hard Seltzer, Simply Spiked Lemonade and Fresca Mixed.

“We are experimenting and learning strategically in alcohol,” said Khalil Younes, president of emerging categories at Coke. “We are excited about the opportunities, but we also know it will take effort and patience.”

New Canyon Ultimate takes notes on the Aeroad – but will it suffer from the same flaws?


Canyon tested a new version of its Ultimate CFR during the last weekend of the Critérium du Dauphiné.

Video footage of Enric Mas’ machine captured by matosvelo.fr (opens in a new tab) (and reproduced here with kind permission) shows that the German brand’s climbing bike has inherited some of the features of the Canyon Aeroad (opens in a new tab) as well as strengthen certain areas in the style of Endurace (opens in a new tab)while remaining very recognizable a Canyon.

The most obvious change is up front, where the hydraulic hoses have now been integrated via a new integrated cockpit which will almost certainly be based on the one used by the latest Aeroad.

Our counterparts from CyclingNews (opens in a new tab) bolts spotted under the top of the bars that seem to confirm this will be the same adjustable-width bar that Canyon debuted with the Aeroad.

This handlebar design rose to fame for all the wrong reasons last year, when Canyon issued a “stop ride” advisory in March after a high-profile failure when Mathieu van der Poel finished Le Samyn with a broken handlebar.

However, the redesigned and reinforced version was revived in time for the Tour de France, in which Van der Poel rode the Aeroad to the yellow jersey. (opens in a new tab) to the second stage – so all issues with this front-end design seem to be resolved.

The new angled fork seems to have more in common with the Canyon Endurace, perhaps now wider at the crown for extra tire clearance, although aerodynamics are also a key factor.

Meanwhile, the bottom bracket area appears to have been significantly widened to provide additional stiffness. Where previously the downtube flowed down and then back as it met the chainstays, it now ends more abruptly on a squarer shell. This could be working in extra rear tire clearance as well as adding torsional flex resistance for sprinters and climbers.

Seatpost-wise, Canyon appears to have ditched the round-profile VCLS style of the previous Ultimate, but clearly opted for an aero design with integrated flex under the top tube junction – as deployed with the Aeroad .

Canyon redesigned the 2021 Aeroad seatpost (opens in a new tab) after the built-in flex caused excessive wear if not very clean.

So the new Ultimate appears to have a D-shaped seatpost adopted by a growing number of manufacturers, including Giant with its D-Fuse technology. The D-shaped section allows for rearward flex while (under the right circumstances) also providing kamm-tail aerodynamics.

The clamp bolt is at the front of the seat tube, under Canyon’s so-called compensating triangle.

At first glance, Canyon appears to have outfitted the new Ultimate with its latest technology, now fully tried and tested with the starting issues lurking behind it.

We’ll bring you more specific information from Canyon as we get it, but in the meantime it’s fair to say that the new Ultimate seems to have played it safe with an evolution rather than a top-to-bottom redesign. .

Reviews | Personal finance course should be required in high school

Placeholder while loading article actions

One of the best gifts state and local lawmakers and teachers can give high school graduates is a solid financial education. Michigan is on its way to becoming the 14th state make a personal finance course mandatory before students graduate from high school. This should be a requirement across the country. Every student graduating from a public high school should take at least one semester of basic personal finance.

High school graduates will soon face the challenges of finding jobs, paying bills and taxes, finding housing, and managing credit cards, bank accounts, mortgages, student loans and more. Some teens face these burdens even before they graduate because they have to help support their families. Money management is daunting at any age, but it’s especially difficult when you’re just starting out. Losing even a little money at first to fees, fines, or bad investments can be crippling, and bad credit can linger and hurt a young person for years.

Less than 1 of 4 high school students must take a personal finance course before graduating, according to Next Generation Personal Finance, which evaluates high school curricula and advocates for all students to have access to basic monetary education by 2025. The situation is even worse at many majority nonwhite and low-income schools. Only about 1 in 20 black and brown college students have the opportunity to take a personal finance course before graduation, unless they live in a state that offers it to everyone, the organization found.

Critics of these types of programs argue that they are a band-aid that hides deeper problems in the US financial sector where low-income families and people of color often fall prey to high-fee products and, in some cases, face outright discrimination. in access to loans and other basic services. Personal finance courses are not a magic bullet. But they must go hand in hand with efforts to reform the banking system to make it fairer for all. Giving young people a basic education about how the financial system works is not just about helping them avoid the worst options; it’s about helping them choose the best path.

Likewise, those who argue that all students need a basic understanding of math and compound interest are naïve. Today, being savvy about personal finance is as much about knowing how to navigate paperwork and legal terms as it is about knowing basic math. Customers have to choose between different bank accounts and fee structures, different types of loans, and traditional banks versus non-bank lenders. The recent outbreak ofbuy now, pay laterin many stores is another reminder of how quickly old ideas can be repackaged for the digital age and catch consumers off guard. And then there is the rise of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.

The fact that Michigan’s bill passed overwhelmingly shows what a rare bipartisan issue it is. We’re glad to see that Virginia is one of the top-ranked states for personal finance education, according to Next Gen Personal Finance. Maryland is ranked in the middle and DC is unfortunately ranked 49th. Personal finance should be as essential to a secondary education as Shakespeare and algebra.

5 Motorcycles We Wish Were Sold In India – Yamaha Tenere 700 To Kawasaki ZX-25R


The grass is greener on the other side, however, when it comes to motorcycles, that’s absolutely true. Here are five motorcycles we want to be on sale in India.

Four wheels move the body and two wheels move the soul – every motorcycle enthusiast knows this. With the number of performance motorcycles being sold in India ranging from Japanese manufacturers to the elusive European ones, money can buy some of the best liter class motorcycles and above in India. Nothing beats the feeling of wind in your face from riding a powerful motorcycle.

However, experienced motorcyclists know that the sweet spot for enjoying a motorcycle on the road is a mid-range motorcycle, with usable power. This is one of the reasons why motorcycles between 500 and 900 cc are popular around the world.

India has not seen many in this segment over the years due to a law banning motorcycles of this displacement to help Indian manufacturers grow. Individual imports were allowed and companies could import them via a CKD route and assemble them here. Either way, the taxes added up and the final price fell within reach of larger liter-class bikes, and sometimes, above them.

This is the reason why many 600cc sport bikes in India such as CBR600R, YZF-R6 and GSX-R600 are rarely spotted in India, and most of them are gray market bikes. However, enthusiasts will be happy if the following 5 motorcycles come to India and at a reasonable price.

Yamaha YZF-R6

The Yamaha YZF-R6 or simply the R6 needs no introduction. Introduced in 1999 and in production until 2020, the R6 has won numerous races around the world in different formats. Since 2021, the Yamaha R6 has been limited to a race-only specification in most global markets, allowing other brands to make a name for themselves in motorcycle racing.

When introduced in 1999, the R6 was the first production 600cc motorcycle to produce 100 horsepower in stock form. Over the years the R6 has evolved with technologies such as fuel injection, and the 2007-2008 model saw the R6 produce a whopping 127 hp from stock. The other reason the R6 is famous is not how it revs, but how much it revs down to -14,000 rpm!

Kawasaki ZX-25R

kawasaki zx 25r

Coming back to something with usable power, enthusiasts will be happy if Kawasaki releases the ZX-25R in India. Don’t be fooled by the “25” as the Kawasaki ZX-25R is the only four-cylinder motorcycle in the quarter-litre class and the engine puts out 43 bhp.

The Kawasaki ZX-25R is identical to its liter-class counterpart, the ZX-10R, and features traction control, adjustable Showa USD forks, two power modes, underbelly exhaust, a WSBK derived chassis and a standard quick shifter. The sad news is that Kawasaki may never bring the ZX-25R to India as it will be impossible to price it competitively in the segment.

KTM Adventure R-Series

ktm 1290 super adventure r

The adventure motorcycle segment is getting popular and brands like BMW, Honda and Triumph already have their adventure models on sale in India. The biggest name missing from this range is KTM, known for their Adventure models, more specifically the Adventure R models such as the 890, 1090 and 1290.

KTM gave India a taste of the stunning KTM 790 Duke which was all picked up, but that was it. The 790 Adventure never made it here and it looks like Kike KTM has no plans with the 890 either. The larger displacement bikes will rival the Honda Africa Twin, BMW GS 1250 and Triumph Tiger 1200 recently launched, but if KTM brings the 890 here, it will be a usable motorcycle.

Honda CRF 300 Rally

honda crf 300 rally

When it comes to adventure bikes, the Honda CRF 300 Rally strikes the perfect balance for an everyday usable adventure bike. The CRF 300 Rally draws its design from the proven Dakar Rally motorcycles with a large fairing to deflect the wind.

The motorcycle is powered by a liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine that develops 28hp and 26Nm of torque using a 6-speed gearbox. The CRF 300 Rally is a good dual-sport bike with a small-capacity engine and long-travel suspension that won’t intimidate riders, but with the ability to go anywhere. It would be a great bike if Honda could fix it properly.

Suzuki SV650

suzuki sv 650

Talk to any experienced Suzuki SV650 rider and they will have nothing but praise for the bike. The SV650 is sold in select global markets and has the right aspects to make it an everyday bike and a weekend getaway bike.

It is built on a thin and light chassis, receives a 645 cc 72 hp V-twin engine, a 6-speed gearbox, ABS, and that’s it! It’s a return to basics with the SV650 which makes it an excellent motorcycle. Oh, and reliability – it’s like the Toyota Corolla in the motorcycle world, it runs smoothly.

Honorable Mention: Yamaha Tenere 700

yamaha tenere 700

The Yamaha Tenere 700 when it was first shown as a concept a few years ago in 2017 left adventure riders wanting Yamaha to put it into production immediately. Finally, Yamaha did just that and the result was a bigger, more powerful Dakar rally bike that could be used on the road and anywhere in between.

The Yamaha Tenere 700 or T7 takes riders back to basics with a usable 71hp twin and no computer to assist riders making it a favorite.

A man from Indore has a collection of around 650 antique clocks


June 12, 2022 03:44 STI

Indore (Madhya Pradesh) [India]June 12 (ANI): In what felt like a dream in the woods, an Indore-based man has a collection of around 650 clocks, some of which are over 200 years old.
Anil Bhalla has a collection of antique clocks and has a dedicated room for their display and storage.

“Some clocks were brought by my grandfather from abroad and later my father also started collecting them. I also collected them. Some are over 200 years old. All clocks are in working order” , he told ANI.

These clocks come in different sizes and designs, including those with a pendulum operating on balance, some operating with a steel ball.
Many of these watches are also hand made and some were also imported.

The maintenance of these wall hangings is also very demanding and sometimes mechanics and craftsmen are called in from Mumbai and Chennai in order to preserve these timeless pieces.

He also suggested that the collection could be turned into a museum by the next generation.
“I will tell my generation after me that if they can’t handle it, then keep it in a locked safe or make it their museum,” he added.
Many people visit Bhalla to buy this collection, but he remains attached to his collection of old but unique watches. In 2013 his name was also registered in the Limca Book of Records for this amazing collection.
He also pointed out that he also collected fans, bicycles and lamps.
“Apart from the watches, I have old fans which previously had a wooden lamp and three blades. In addition, I also have a bicycle from the second world war, and also an old BMW bicycle which is in working order. walk,” he concluded. . (ANI)

Hamilton drug bust: Six charged with ketamine, mephedrone, ecstasy drug bust


Police seized four vehicles, including a Harley-Davidson MC and approximately $80,000 in cash during Operation Poapoa this week. Photo/New Zealand Police

Six men have been charged with possessing, supplying or importing various party drugs including ecstasy, ketamine, methamphetamine and mephedrone – known as ‘meow meow’ – after a long secret police operation.

Mephedrone, also known as White Magic or M-Cat, is a stimulant chemically similar to amphetamines and produces effects like ecstasy, cocaine, and amphetamines.

The six defendants were arrested by Waikato police yesterday after an operation which began late last year.

Eight search warrants have been executed in Hamilton and Auckland, including business premises, Waikato Police Detective Inspector Daryl Smith said.

“As a result, six men between the ages of 28 and 33 were arrested and all appeared in Hamilton District Court on Friday on a range of charges including participating in organized crime and selling and supplying class drugs. HAS.

“Police seized four vehicles, including a Harley-Davidson MC and approximately $80,000 in cash.”

Alex Noel Hustler, 28, of Taupiri, faces five charges: participation in an organized criminal group between December 21 and 22, 2021; importation of ecstasy, a class B drug, into New Zealand on November 15 and December 13, 2021 in Hamilton; the importation of ketamine, a Class C drug, into New Zealand at Hamilton on December 13, 2021; and failing to assist in a search by police in Hamilton on June 9.

Hustler was taken into custody by Judge Simon Menzies at Hamilton District Court today to reappear later this month.

Boxsey Pouaka Ngataki, 39, of Hamilton, also faces five counts, including participating in an organized criminal group and failing to assist in a search.

He is jointly charged with a 28-year-old former Hamilton man and Samuel Andrews, of Māngere, Auckland, of supplying ecstasy, ketamine and mephedrone on May 31 in Hamilton.

The 28-year-old, who has also been remanded in custody, faces a total of 17 charges, including supplying P, ecstasy, ketamine and mephedrone to Hamilton between the 23rd and the May 31st.

He is jointly accused with Andrews of supplying P, ecstasy and ketamine. The couple are also jointly charged with possession of ketamine for supply in Hamilton on June 9 and possession of P for supply on June 8.

Andrews, 33, who faces 11 charges, was also remanded in custody.

Jacob Gilchrist, 30, of Hamilton, faces four charges; participation in an organized criminal group, supply of ketamine and MDMA in Hamilton between April 1, 2022 and June 9, 2022 and possession of MDMA on June 9.

Gilchrist was released on bail without a plea to reappear with his co-defendant on June 30.

Smith said Waikato Police continue to investigate, target and dismantle groups involved in importing, selling and supplying illegal drugs within the community.

Police welcome information from anyone concerned about organized crime or the supply of illicit drugs in their community.

* The operation was separate from Operation Bali, in which Customs worked with police to arrest 10 people in connection with the alleged importation, sale and supply of cocaine and methamphetamine.

They all appeared in Wellington District Court on Thursday.

Debt relief and credit scams


If you’re struggling to pay off debts such as credit card debt, car loans, or student loans, you may be looking for ways to reduce your debt. If so, you are not alone. Total household debt in the United States was $15.84 trillion from 2022. Still, it is important to be careful when you receive tempting offers of debt relief from lawyers.

Debt relief and credit scammers target people with high debt or low credit scores. Signing up for a debt relief service without doing your research can lead to more lost money and an even worse credit score if you’re not careful.

When looking for help managing your debt, talk to a qualified credit counselor. Know the signs of a credit scam and research a debt relief company before you start working with them.

What Debt Relief and Credit Scams Look Like

Debt management can seem overwhelming, and you’re probably looking for a way to reduce your debt. But, it’s important to be aware of common debt relief and credit scams so you can spot them when they come your way.

You could be a victim of a credit scam if they contact you first. Scammers can email or text you or call you. They take advantage of your desire for a practical debt solution in order to get your attention. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) enforces the Telemarketing Sales Rule which requires telemarketers to follow certain rules. If you believe they are not complying with these legal regulations, contact the FTC.

Debt relief and credit scams also usually require an upfront payment. A legitimate debt relief company will only collect your payment once they are able to help you. When a company asks you for a large upfront payment, proceed with caution. There is no guarantee that debt can be reduced, so you should avoid any company that guarantees credit improvement or debt settlement.

How to protect yourself from scams

What can you do to stay safe from credit and debt relief scams? Follow these tips:

  • Know the law. The FTC regulates the things telemarketers can and cannot do. If you know the regulations, you can recognize when something is wrong. Familiarize yourself with the telemarketing sales rule, which only allows calls at certain times and requires lawyers to stop calling you if you ask.
  • Do your homework. If you need help with your credit or managing your debts, look for reputable credit counselors and companies. Check the Better Business Bureau (BBB) ​​to determine if a company is a scam or the real thing.
  • Consider all options. Managing a large amount of debt is tricky, but there are several ways to improve your situation. Examine all your options. Consider talking to a credit counselor, consolidating your debts, or working with a legitimate debt settlement company.
  • Avoid upfront costs. A good debt settlement company will not charge you upfront. They will only charge you if they end up helping you with your debt. Do not sign up for any service that requires an upfront fee.

The action returns to the flat track during Motorcycle Week at NHMS


The New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS) is a top destination for riders visiting the area during Laconia Motorcycle Week, June 11-19, with on- and off-track events throughout nine days of motorcycle mayhem. Racing on The Flat Track caps off a week of motorcycle celebrations that also includes road racing, vendors, demo rides, camping and more.

“We are thrilled to have The Flat Track back in action this season,” said New Hampshire Motor Speedway executive vice president and general manager David McGrath. “With two weekends of dirt racing to entertain bikers traveling to and from Laconia, as well as competitions on the road course, demonstration rides and vendor displays, this year’s Motorcycle Week at NHMS is a week bikers simply cannot miss.”

NHMS will hold events at The Flat Track on consecutive weekends. Riders can enjoy America’s Original Extreme Sport motorcycle handlebar dirt racing on June 11 when Progressive American Flat Track brings the Laconia Short Track race presented by MOMS to the 0.25-mile dirt track. On June 18, the first Musket Dirt Shootout will feature the Dirt Midget Association, Sprint Cars of New England and two classes from Granite State Mini Sprints.

The NHMS is home to the best racing action in the region, and there’s no shortage of action on the full 1.6-mile road course with nearly 50 races over four days. The United States Classic Racing Association kicks off with the FIM North American Vintage Championships on June 11-12. A variety of classes, from 1950s tank shifters to modern little twin bikes, offer a plethora of vintage racing action.

The action continues June 18-19 when Northeast Motorcycle Road Racing (NEMRR) competes in round three of the Championship Cup Series race, highlighted by the 99e Annual Loudon Classic Middleweight Grand Prix. Known as America’s oldest motorcycle race, the Classic took place on site long before the speedway was built, when it was simply a road course known as Bryar Motorsports Park .

With NEMRR, Supermoto East Coast will combine high-flying action on dirt with high speeds on asphalt. Classes ranging from children to adults will participate in the third round of their championship on June 18 and 19.

Penguin Road Racing School will host training sessions for racers looking to improve their skills on June 16-17.

Members of the Harley Owners Group, the official riding club of Harley-Davidson, can stop in the Harley-Davidson area for official rally registration and collect their commemorative rally pin. In addition to the demo rides, there will be a plethora of vendors on-site with gear, accessories, sound systems and more for riders.

Riders can also support children in need across New England through June 14’s Ride to the Racetrack, a cruise from Laconia Harley-Davidson to NHMS that includes two laps on the full 1.6-mile road course. Registration is $20 per driver or passenger and all proceeds go to the New Hampshire Chapter of Speedway Children’s Charities, the official charity of the NHMS.

Racers can also visit the New England Racing Museum, located on Route 106 North across from The Flat Track next to the south entrance to the speedway.

In Lino Lakes, a motorcycle ride will raise funds to provide free assistance dogs to veterans


With a Vietnam War-era helicopter flying overhead to lead the way, dozens of motorcyclists will take a six-hour ride on Saturday to raise money for an organization that provides free service dogs disabled veterans.

Four years ago, a few members of Lino Lakes American Legion Post 566 attended a graduation ceremony for newly commissioned service dogs at Believet Canine Partners. The members were so touched that they adopted the Northfield, Minnesota nonprofit and have held an annual fundraiser ever since.

“It’s a pretty emotional experience to see someone in need when they get their dog,” said Mike Schwartz, who organizes the American Legion Riders fundraiser for Believet. “It’s a very tearful event.”

Schwartz said up to 250 runners are expected to participate in Saturday’s race with the goal of raising up to $10,000. Participants do not need to be a Legion cavalryman, a member of the American Legion or have any ties to the military, he said.

That money is much needed, said Sam Daly, who founded Believet, which relies solely on donations to cover the $30,000 needed to train and feed each service dog.

Most donations come in installments of $5 to $25, but “we rely on organizations to fundraise for us,” he said. Without groups like the Legion Riders, “we would be bankrupt”.

Without Believet, Laura Ritt, 37, of New Richmond, Wisconsin, said she may not be alive. Ritt was one of the few women to have worked in security forces for the Air Force. It was stressful and led to a medical retirement in 2014, she said.

“That’s when things really came to a head,” said Ritt, who suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). “I realized I couldn’t hide behind the job title.” Ritt said she was considering suicide.

In 2018, she found Believet and received her service dog, River, a Black English Lab, which probably wouldn’t have happened without the support provided by groups such as the Legion Riders.

“I think they’re a godsend,” Ritt said. “Anyone willing to take that much time out of their day to raise money for Believet to save other veterans, they’re angels.”

Daly started Believet after serving two postings in Afghanistan as a civilian contractor training Marines and military dogs to detect explosives. Daly returned to Northfield with a new mission in life: to help military veterans like the Marines he encountered in Afghanistan.

He saw the positive results. Veterans like Ritt “have a reason to get out of bed now. They have a reason to hope,” Daly said.

Over the past eight years, Believet has provided about 50 dogs to veterans free of charge and has another 42 veterans on the waiting list.

Saturday’s Legion Ride will begin at 10:30 a.m. at the Lino Lakes American Legion. From there, the single-engine helicopter used during the war will escort the motorcade to the veterans’ camp on Big Marine Lake in Marine sur Sainte-Croix. Riders will participate in a flag removal ceremony. Next, riders will travel to North Branch for lunch, then stop at the St. Francis American Legion before returning to Lino Lakes for a taco buffet dinner and raffle.

David DuChene, 71, of Faribault, suffers from PTSD and has a lung disease attributed to Chemical Agent Orange to which he was exposed while serving in the Vietnam War. He said he considered killing himself until he found Believet three years ago and teamed up with a poodle named Jack.

“It was the best thing that ever happened,” DuChene said. Donating “is one of the best things people can do. It will help feed and train the dogs of future vets. We appreciate that.”

Lino Lakes American Legion Walking Tour

When: Registration 8:30 a.m. Saturday; departure at 10:30 a.m.

Where: Lino Lakes American Legion, 7731 Lake Drive.

Cost: $20 for passengers, $15 for passengers

Five loans to start your business – Flux Magazine


Al Woods words

When you start a business you need money, there is no getting around it. It is necessary to have enough capital to grow, expand and advance your business. Whether you have money to start your business or not, having enough capital is essential to grow. That’s where loans come in. Whether you’re trying to open a cafe or start a tech business, capital is imperative. No matter what type of business you start, you will need money. Below are five loans to help you start a business.

Business loans

The obvious option when it comes to starting a business is a business loan. Business loans usually come from banks and can have very high interest rates. Other lenders may be interested in providing funding for your business, but they will generally want to understand your business model and what you are looking to accomplish. If a lender likes your business model, they’ll be more likely to provide you with the funds you need. Business loans vary quite a bit. They are dynamic and versatile, but they might not be the best option for you.

Personal loans

Another option for starting a business is a personal loan. Personal loans are of two different types. Secured loans generally use collateral. It’s a good option to buy a big piece of equipment when you start your business. For example, if you are trying to start a brewery, you can use a secured loan to purchase a brewing kit. Of course, you must make the payments on time. Failure to do so could result in the lender repossessing your equipment. Unsecured loans, however, do not require collateral. These are based on your credit score. When trying to start a business, an unsecured personal loan can be a great way to get cash to use for anything.

Installment loans

Installment loans are just that, loans offered in multiple installments. You may be thinking, what is the difference between payday loan and installment loan choice ? Payday loans help borrowers through a specific period, and they pay it in the interest rate. Installment loans are loan options that provide funds in bursts. This way, you won’t have to pay it all off at once and enjoy the benefits of getting money every week or so. They too does not require a credit check. These loans are great for starting a business because you will receive money as you spend it and determine the base or operations.


Crowdfunding is a non-traditional loan to help you start your business. Sure, you could ask people to give you free money back, but you probably won’t get that many donations. Instead, you can offer lenders freebies, products, and special offers. Crowdfunding is a great way to determine your target demographic. It’s, in a sense, a loan, but it’s directly from your customers to get you started. If you have a product or service in demand, crowdfunding is a good option for a non-traditional loan.

Small business loans

Small business loans can be a little different from traditional business loans. Many of these loans come from the government. When you open in a location that needs economic development, the city or county might be willing to loan you money to start the business. Small business loans are also available from private lenders, but generally these businesses are set up in places where it benefits the business.

When you start a business, there are so many things to think about. The most important thing to start a business is to have enough money. You need capital to start the business and keep it running for years. If you’re not making money right away, this is especially relevant. You’re lucky. There are many types of loans to choose from to get started. If you think you’ll need money to take the business to its highest potential, you shouldn’t overlook your loan options. Instead, do some research to find the best loan for your business model. You won’t regret it when you have a successful business in your hands!

Porsche fully acquires lightweight e-bike maker Fazua


Porsche has taken over Fazua, a manufacturer of lightweight and compact drive systems for e-bikes. The takeover follows Porsche’s acquisition of a 20% stake in the German start-up. It’s also part of a campaign by Porsche to grow the e-bike business.

Fazua, based in Ottobrunn near Munich, is considered by Porsche to be a “pioneer in the development of lightweight and compact drive systems”. Indeed, the company was established in 2013 with the sole purpose of developing a lightweight e-bike drive. Today, Fazua employs over 100 people and says more than 40 brands rely on their technologies, including Bianchi, Cube, Pinarello and Focus.

“We have found in Fazua a strong partner with extensive experience in the bicycle industry,” says Lutz Meschke, Deputy Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG and Member of the Executive Board for Finance and IT.

Their e-bike system integrates the motor inside the bottom bracket and also hides the battery inside the frame, making it slightly larger. In total, the disc weighs no more than 1.5 kilos, including the battery for a range of 50 km.

It remains to be seen exactly how Fazua will fit into the Porsche lineup. However, when Porsche took a 20% stake in Fazua last February, it also announced a strategic cooperation with Ponooc Investment. In today’s statement, Porsche added that it will now merge all e-bike businesses by creating two joint ventures with Ponooc Investment. The first joint venture will develop, manufacture and distribute a future generation of high-quality Porsche e-bikes. The second will focus on technology solutions for the growing micromobility market, hence the company.

Ponooc is the investment arm of Pon Holdings, one of the largest family businesses in the Netherlands. The Pon portfolio includes 15 bicycle brands, Gazelle, Cervélo, Focus, Kalkhoff, Cannondale, Schwinn and Caloi.

Regardless of the joint venture’s activities, Porsche says it will continue to work with longtime partner Rotwild on its current e-bike models. In March 2021, the company launched the Porsche eBike Sport and the eBike Cross. The sports car maker also owns a majority stake in Croatian e-bike brand Greyp.

Movie Car Monday: Captain America and Harley-Davidson


The Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Star-Spangled Avenger Had One motorbike choice: a Harley-Davidson. Throughout the character’s tenure onscreen, he’s ridden everything from water-cooled Street 750 bikes to air-cooled Softail Breakouts. Here are some of the coolest Milwaukee motorcycles Captain America has ridden in the movies.

What kind of motorcycle does Captain America ride? The First Avenger?

Steve Rogers, or as he is better known, Captain America, rides a 1942 Harley-Davidson WLA “Liberator” in The First Avenger. In addition to fitting the aesthetic of the movie, the bike is a derivative of the WWII workhorse. WLA stands for Harley-Davidson High Compression Motorcycle and the “A” suffix stands for Military Use Motorcycle. So it was fitting that Rogers and his commandos got their hands on a WLA for their military operations.

However, this was no ordinary courier motorcycle. Captain America’s bike featured gadgets and accessories like a shotgun scabbard and mounting surface for his shield.

The Avengers: Harley-Davidson Softail Slim

The box office hit of 2012 The Avengers saw Captain America drive off on a low-key Harley-Davidson Softail Slim. Frankly, the Softail Slim was perhaps the perfect bike for the character at the time. The film involved Roger’s first mission after thawing out and trying to adapt to modern times. It makes sense that his bike is a retro-inspired callback to the bikes he would have ridden in the 1940s.

Which Harley-Davidson rode Captain America in? The Winter Soldier?

Steve Rogers rode a custom Harley-Davidson Softail Breakout in the 2014 film The Winter Soldier. The film continued Rogers’ character arc in modern times and called for a Harley-Davidson with updated styling. Specifically, it was a low-slung, modern, mean-spirited Softail Breakout with plenty of attitude and a 103-cubic-inch twin-cam engine. Although only on screen for a brief time, it feels like home with Rogers and the inexplicably empty streets of Washington DC.

Age of Ultron: Harley-Davidson Street 750

Captain America rode a Harley-Davidson Street 750 in both Age of Ultron (2015) and The Winter Soldier. Contrary to The Winter SoldierRogers started Age of Ultron charging into battle alongside his friends on the liquid-cooled bike. At one point, Captain America actually throws the motorcycle into a Humvee to defeat his opponents.

However, the Street family is a disappointing bike in the Harley-Davidson lineup. Small and underpowered, this seems like a poor choice for a battle-charging Avenger. Motorcycle News reports that the little Harley-Davidson only managed 44 lb-ft of torque.

What motorcycle does Black Widow ride in Avengers 2?

Captain America rides Harley-Davidson motorcycles like these LiveWires.

Although Captain America didn’t ride it, his teammate, the Black Widow, featured the all-new Harley-Davidson LiveWire in the second Avengers movie. Age of Ultron. The bike is a much sportier companion for a superhero than the aforementioned Street 750, with a claimed 0-60mph time of just 3.0 seconds. Plus, given the all-electric nature of the bike, it’s much quieter than the beloved sounds of Harley-Davidson’s twin-cam V-twin engines.

Why does Captain America ride a motorcycle?

Given Rogers’ comic book tenure and his cruiser bikes, it seems only fitting that he rides in the movies. Plus, Harley-Davidson seems like a fitting mount for the veteran, given the company’s World War II connection to the U.S. military. Web Bike World says Harley-Davidson contributed nearly 90,000 WLA motorcycles to the war effort during the time the fictional fighter was reportedly in Germany.

200 Charlottesville kids get free new bikes


CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) — Children of all ages and their families lined up Sunday afternoon at Tonsler Park for the third annual Bike Giveaway.

Wes Bellamy is the event organizer and says it’s just a day of love every time, even though this year it’s bigger than ever.

“Last year we gave away 50 bikes and we had to turn the kids away and they were crying and that was a really really sad thing. So we said, hey, let’s raise the bar,” Bellamy said.

He managed to collect 200 bikes so no one would leave without one.

“You see little kids walking away with smiles on their faces, that’s really what it’s about,” Bellamy said.

He says Charlottesville Parks and Recreation helps make it all happen.

“They went through the clutch like no other. Rapper Young Jeezy provided 50 bikes from the Streets Dreams Foundation, and then the rest came from the community. We created a GoFundMe. We raised nearly $8,000 on the GoFundMe just for these bikes,” Bellamy said.

It’s the start of the Charlottesville Tonsler League, which features basketball games all summer long at Tonsler Park.

“We’re more than a bunch of guys playing basketball, we’re really here to serve the community and that’s always a great thing we can do,” Bellamy said.

The league is all about providing entertainment and being in tune with everyone, which starts with free bikes this year.

“That’s really what Charlottesville is. We’re a community that comes together and I’m just grateful and proud and really, honestly, very kind and grateful that the community trusts me to be able to donate,” Bellamy said. .

The Tonsler League lasts all summer and it’s every Thursday and Sunday evening.

10 cheap dirt bikes, sports duals and trail bikes we’d love to rock a leg


Dirt bikes come in all shapes, budgets and sizes. One thing they all have in common is that they are great fun to drive. Modern dirt bikes can be quite expensive, and buying used can sometimes feel like a lottery due to how difficult these bikes are to ride. There are, however, a few models that are mostly safe bets.

Dual-sport bikes had waned in popularity for a while, but have seen a slight resurgence as people are starting to recognize the value of owning a bike that you can just ride to the trail, instead of loading it onto a van or trailer. Some brand-new dual-sport bikes are really affordable, used bikes even more so.

ten Yamaha YZ250

The venerable Yamaha two-stroke has now been around for nearly 20 years, only receiving updates to its chassis and suspension, but retaining the same engine.

In short, getting an older bike won’t leave you lacking power, and most enthusiasts will have already upgraded the bike and performed the necessary maintenance (which with high performance two-strokes involves a rebuild of the motor).

9 Kawasaki KDX200

The old dual-sport was just brilliant in every way, the fact that they made these bikes road legal was a stroke of genius.

It’s a reasonably capable two-stroke machine, just like the YZ, you have to be prepared to rebuild the engine once in a while, but the fact that you can ride it on the track makes it much more versatile.

Related: 2022 Kawasaki KLR650 Review: The Return of the Esteemed Explorer

8 Honda XR650L

To put the longevity of this bike into perspective, it was first released in the early 90s and hasn’t changed much.

As a result, you get incredible value, costing only a few hundred dollars more than the new CRF300 Rally.

seven Yamaha DT125

Few bikes in this world are as reliable and straightforward as the old DT two-stroke, for a small, lightweight bike it also has enough power.

One thing you’ll need to modify for the trail is its gearing, which is large for street use, but we suspect if you’re in the market for something like this you won’t be using it as a commuter (although that you could if you wanted to).

6 Suzuki DR-Z400S

Like the Honda, you can always get one of these new, but for the DR-Z, there’s a pretty good case for going with a used bike instead.

So many of these things have been made in the last 20 years that they’ve been in production and so few updates have been made that getting one from the 2000s will cost half as much and still offer just as much capability and performance.

5 Yamaha TW200

The TW is the ultimate trail bike, with a solid top-end grunt it will go just about anywhere, slow enough.

So as long as you don’t mind its speed, it’ll negotiate even the most technical trails and odd main roads, because it’s still perfectly road legal.

Related: This is what makes the Yamaha TW200 a good trail bike

4 Kawasaki KX450f

By the mid-2000s Kawasaki had more or less perfected the four-stroke off-road bike, it was and still is a high-maintenance performance bike, but it packs incredible power.

On paper, it might have about the same power as other bikes, but just as it dominated on the track in the 2000s, it will also give you an edge. Just make sure it has at least a straight frame, these bikes take incredible abuse and the cheaper they are the more likely something is wrong with them.

3 Husqvarna XC500

If you’re looking for something a little more exotic and a little more classic in nature, you can find one of these beautiful bikes for next to nothing.

They were developed to be the best desert racers of the time, and while they lacked the technology of their contemporary competition, they made up for that with sheer speed. These bikes have outdated suspension, awful brakes, but are capable of 100 mph. They’re terrifying in the wrong hands, but incredibly fun if you’re able to hold on, you’ve been warned…

Related: A look back at the Husqvarna XC500

2 Honda CRF450L

The CRF has been around for a few years now and offers exceptional value on the used market, often priced to match the new CRF300L.

It’s kind of a chalk-and-cheese comparison and considering how reliable Honda is in making this 450, it’s well and truly a safe buy.

1 Yamaha XT350

What sets the old XT apart is how advanced it was for its time, although it was still air cooled it had a DOHC engine so it revs strong and looks much more like one high-performance off-road motorcycles of the time.

It had super tall gearing from the factory, so if it hasn’t installed a larger cog yet, this will be your first purchase to make it trail-ready.

Massachusetts man airlifted to Dartmouth after motorcycle accident in Townshend | Local News


TOWNSHEND — A Colrain, Massachusetts man was seriously injured and airlifted to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center on Saturday after his motorcycle was involved in an accident on Vermont Route 30 in Townshend. Vermont State Police said the crash happened around 2 p.m.

Police say when responding to a two-vehicle crash involving a motorcycle, a 64-year-old man Bradley Hosmer had been transported by ambulance to a landing zone where he was later transported by DHART helicopter to Dartmouth with serious life-threatening injuries.

An investigation found Hosmer was traveling south on VT 30 on his Triumph Tiger when a Jeep Cherokee driven by 39-year-old Brandie Heyes of Gilbertville, Mass. – traveling north – made a left turn into a mobile gas station in front of the motorcycle. Police say Hosmer was unable to avoid Heyes’ vehicle and suffered serious and life-threatening injuries in the accident.

Heyes’ Jeep sustained moderate damage and a passenger in his vehicle was slightly injured.

The investigation is ongoing. Police are asking anyone who may have witnessed the crash to contact Private Eric Clemens at Westminster Barracks at 802-722-4600. Vermont State Police were assisted by the Newbrook and Townshend Fire Departments and Scott Brooks Towing.

10 Old Harley-Davidsons Every Biker Should Ride


As a brand, Harley-Davidson has one of the largest and most fervent fanbases in the world, and every one of those fans will have an opinion on what the best Harley really is.

Even objectively, those of us who aren’t necessarily interested in the brand or the bikes they make will have some sort of opinion. They are simply iconic and have become as much a motorcycle brand as a cultural icon.

With all that in mind, there’s no way we’re committing to a number one, you’ll have to decide, but these are 10 of their most iconic machines that every motorcycle enthusiast should ride at least once. in his life.

ten 1936 EL “Knucklehead”

Until the 1930s, most motorcycles, including those made by Harley, looked like bicycles with small engines (i.e. mopeds).

Motorcycle design made quite a dramatic change at the time of the EL’s launch, and it was arguably one of the first “modern” motorcycles in that regard. Its “Knucklehead” engine was its most distinctive feature, however, and the moniker stuck.

9 1942 W.L.A.

You could make a pretty strong argument that this was the first-ever dual-sport bike, only it rode through battlefields, not trails on a Sunday.

It was truly a war machine, a tool used by the troops to good effect. It also became the most widely modified motorcycle after the war, as it was an affordable army surplus motorcycle.

8 1957 XL Sportster Ironhead

By the end of the 1950s, Harley had become one of the biggest motorcycle manufacturers in the world, but these big Ironhead motorcycles were the motorcycle equivalent of “no replacement for displacement”.

It turned out to be a rather popular model and philosophy, as these bikes remained in production well into the 80s with only minor revisions and updates.

seven 1958 XLCH Sportster

As the pressure mounted on Harley to get more performance out of their bikes as British manufacturers got a head start, Harley delivered on their promise with the Sportster.

The Sportster has been an integral part of their model line ever since, going through several different design phases, but that’s where it all started.

6 1958 Duo Slips

Up until this point in history, the rear suspension on Harleys was entirely in the seat. It was their first bike that incorporated rear shocks.

Not only that, but they were also adjustable. They had three settings, solo, heavy rider (for tall people) and two…although the passenger would have to live without the spring seat and settle for regular foam.

5 1965 Electra Glide

Although you had to tick a few option boxes, this was arguably the first-ever dedicated touring bike.

Checking the right options would give you a larger tank, luggage and a passenger seat if desired. The fact that Elvis bought one didn’t hurt their sales.

4 1970 XR-750

Arguably the best Harley ever made. It was a competition machine and if you wanted to be competitive on the flat track circuit in the early 70s, you needed it.

As famous as he was for his racing exploits, he became even more famous as the bike that Evel Knievel chose for its high-octane stunts and jumps. The lack of front brakes was a committed approach.

3 1983 XR-1000

Harley had its biggest meltdown in the 70s, bikes from that era became infamous money pits and are now worth pennies on the dollar.

By the early 80s they were starting to shake off their unease, as was the whole automotive industry, and were starting to make decent bikes again. The XR-1000 was one of those, although it was a bit overpriced, it was a good high performance Harley.

Related: This “Two-Faced” Custom Buell S1 Is An Ode To The Harley-Davidson VR1000

2 1990 fat boy

The fat boy has to be the most aptly named motorcycle ever madebecause it definitely has a bit more girth than the average Harley of the late 80s/early 90s.

He also shot to fame with his appearance in The Terminator, with Arnold Schwarzenegger’s huge frame looking decidedly fitting for this Fat Boy. A product placement lesson if there ever was one…

1 Buell XB12S/R 2006

Ok that’s a bit of a zinger, but back in 2003 Buell was 100% owned by Harley-Davidson, and the Lightning is still the only sportbike they dared to make (unless you include the very limited production VR1000), although under another brand.

The XB12 is powered by a heavily modified Sportster engine, producing 103 horsepower and 84 feet of torque. We all know those bikes had their flaws, but we’d still love to ride the only Harley that isn’t actually a Harley.

Scott Sports targets 10x sales growth over next three years


As more and more people move towards a healthy lifestyle and choose to buy cycles, Scott Sports sees a paradigm shift in the Indian market and wants to cater to this powerful customer base.

When we think of spending more than Rs 1 lakh on any mode of transport, it is almost always on a combustion engine motorbike or scooter. Nowadays, people also have the option of opting for an environmentally friendly electric vehicle. However, there is another option to consider – a bicycle. Yes, this two-wheeler has been around for hundreds of years and has always been tree-friendly. With advancement in technology and an emphasis on personal fitness, there are plenty of high-end options to choose from. Scott Sports is one of the leading names when it comes to high end cycles in India. We speak with Jaymin Shah, Managing Director of Scott Sports India to understand how customers have reacted to their products and if they have encountered any challenges.

Q) Many customers in India are still worried about spending big bucks on bikes. How do you justify that a bicycle costs as much as a motorbike?

A carbon bike starts at Rs 1.75 lakh and goes up to Rs 8.50 lakh. The bike is designed to weigh less than 8kg, carrying 100kg riders at speeds in excess of 35km/h. It is a technological innovation that is the future of solo mobility around the world. Ten years ago, Indian consumers feared spending Rs 25,000 on a bicycle, but that is no longer the case. The end consumer is smart and knows very well what he is paying for and the quality he expects from high-end products, including high-end bicycles.

Q) Do you have community development programs and are you planning to start/add such activities?

We have various community development programs like SCOTT Weekend. This program includes activities such as SCOTT Smart Bike Fit, Bike Service, Test Ride, Breakfast Ride and Tech Talks with riders. These programs are designed to engage riders in a meaningful way and make cycling more fun and enjoyable for them. We also organize the Bergamont 25 km, 75 km and 100 km challenges which take place in different regions of the country in collaboration with our network of dealers. These help cyclists challenge themselves to cover more distances in a progressive manner with the added thrill of competing against other cyclists.

Q) There has been a push for electric vehicles and we are seeing more and more moves in that direction. How does Scott Sports plan to be part of this movement? Will we see more e-bikes with pedal assists?

The world is moving towards more sustainable and environmentally friendly ways of living and coexisting with nature. We intend to carry this message and amplify the benefits associated with electric mobility to all potential customers in all major markets that we have. We have organized demonstration rides in the majority of our dealer networks for all customers who wish to dive into the world of personal mobility powered by e-bikes. In India, Scott is one of the few bicycle brands to have launched a range of e-bikes as early as 2018. We currently sell nearly 300 e-bikes per year and believe this number can easily be increased up to 3,000 bikes per year. year. the following 24 to 36 months.

Q) What have been the key demographics of your customers so far? Do you see more responses from a specific state or part of India?

Scott Sports brands are all premium brands and are popular among the 25-65 age group. We have a 75-25 split between male and female owners. Our target audiences are highly educated, well-travelled, and hail from most major cities across the country. However, we are seeing an increase in Tier 1 and Tier 2 cities across the country that have taken up cycling with serious intent.

Q) Does the tire import ban affect your business? If so, how are you meeting this challenge and do you have any plans to address the issue more effectively in the future?

The quality of locally produced tires must improve to meet the needs of high-end bicycle consumers. Riders are forced to import tires themselves or continue to source from all parts of the country depending on stock availability. This has resulted in this market becoming a seller’s market, making it unfair to consumers at all levels. As a company, we work with a few international brands to make their product available in the country while respecting the law of the country.

Q) You recently introduced more economical mountain bikes for children in India. Do you think having more budget options in a price conscious market like India will be the key to attracting more customers?


India is a price sensitive market and the market demands exceptional value for money products. Having a range of products at a more accessible price will allow us to discover new audiences. Additionally, our customers’ driving journeys begin at a young age and it will be crucial for us to be part of that journey as early as possible in the consumer’s life. Eventually they move on to more serious riding and demand higher level gear as they begin to enjoy the cycling experience.

2022 Honda CB500X Review [16 Fast Facts: Adventure Motorcycle]

2022 Honda CB500X Review [16 Fast Facts: Adventure Motorcycle]

The Honda CB500X returns for its 10th year in service with several updates to further tweak the well-composed mid-size all-rounder. The adventurous personality of Honda’s three-bike CB500 line, the 2022 Honda CB500X is a capable, unintimidating motorcycle with broad appeal. The parallel twin produces predictable power in a comfortable chassis that accommodates novice riders and anyone looking for a reliable, versatile ride.2022 Honda CB500X Review: For Sale

  1. From conventional vanilla to an inverted Showa SFF-BP fork, the new CB500X improves front suspension clearance. The 41mm inverted fork reduces flex and sharpens steering, just right for a bike that can venture off-road. Separate function fork design – Big Piston sequesters spring and damping action – one in each tube – saving weight. Without riding 2022 back-to-back with last year’s model, it’s hard to quantify the difference between the forks. However, a stronger fork gives more confidence up front, allowing you to ride more aggressively. In a nod to the price of the CB500X, the front suspension remains non-adjustable.
  1. The non-adjustable adventure suspension does a competent job over a wide range of road conditions. On a favorite test course that includes smooth canyon slaloms, miles of tight turns and fast sweepers over bumpy, failing asphalt, the CB500X takes it all in stride. I was very happy with the amount of advantage he took while allowing plenty of feedback that got me in control of my speed where it needed to be.
  1. Twin 296mm rotors replace the single 310mm rotor for 2022. While the single disc stopping power was quite adequate in previous years, the dual discs are an upgrade and they look cool. Nissin calipers squeeze the petal rotors, and the feel at the five-step adjustable lever is spot-on. There’s just enough play before the initial engagement that no one gets caught. The harder you squeeze, the stronger the braking and ABS remains standard. Plus, there’s enough compression braking, so you can just drop the throttle to slow down before canyon turns. As you ride more aggressively and downshift harder, you’ll appreciate the traction control feature of the traction control/assist clutch to help prevent rear wheel hop.

2022 Honda CB500X Review: Specifications

  1. A redesigned swingarm and radiator, along with thinner spokes, contribute to a five-pound weight saving for the 2022 Honda CB500X. Now tipping the scales at 439 pounds with the 4.7 gallon fuel tank full, the 500X is easy to handle and well balanced. It’s responsive without being jittery, exactly what you want to ride around town on.
  1. Other changes for 2022 include revised fuel injection settings and increased forward weight distribution.. These are changes that are difficult to recognize individually, but lead to an overall improved ride. More weight on the front tire adds a bit more grip and feel, and fuel injection mods are designed to improve torque output.
  1. Yes, the mid-size engine of the CB500X is “enough”. The 471cc DOHC engine produces plenty of power for zipping around town, zipping along a fast highway, and performing sporty runs through canyons. Pleasant in every way, it will neither surprise nor disappoint you. From 2500 rpm to around 7500 rpm, torque output is virtually flat, giving you a nicely responsive motor with plenty of easy-to-manage utility.

2022 Honda CB500X Review: Price

  1. The engine really excels in its broad niche, although you don’t get much in store. It’s harder to make a quick move if you’re already at full throttle on the freeway and leveling slightly. However, if you drive the CB500X with that in mind, you’ll be pretty happy with it.
  1. A strong twist of the throttle lets you enjoy a lively ride, and the ADV ergonomics complement/enhance the experience. I ran a speed test—on a closed course, I think—to see how fast the 500X would go. The Honda wiped out all three LCD digits, although the engine worked hard and benefited from a slight downshift. You don’t have to go that fast, of course, but it’s always good to know where your limits are.
  1. The CB500X’s ergonomics are comfortable for everyday use and accommodate a wide range of riders. The upright driving position is pleasant and practical, offering a good view of your surroundings. Hand and foot controls are naturally located, with the clutch assist feature making the pull incredibly light. Also, the 32.8-inch seat height isn’t particularly exclusive. It’s thin where it needs to help bring the boots to the tarmac, so my 30.5-inch inseam kept me away from being flat-footed at the stop.

2022 Honda CB500X Review: Adventure Motorcycle Test

  1. Off-road excursions are quite viable on the CB500X. I haven’t done extensive testing on dirt roads as that would involve changing to dirtier tires, but I can report that my off-road excursions have left a favorable impression. The bike is no handful, and the low-end torque and neutral power kept the handling drama free. The 19-inch front wheel helps the bike trail confidently in loose conditions, and you have over seven inches of ground clearance to work with.
  1. Dunlop Trailmax Mixtour tires on 19- and 17-inch rims are believable on sidewalks and dirt roads. Designed to handle both street roads and the occasional dirt road, the tires allowed me to push as much as I wanted through the canyons with confidence, and the rubber also had no argument with the grooves of rain on the highways. If you ride exclusively on the street, you will need more road-oriented tires. For those with regular doses of dirt, get something with pimples.
  1. If you travel on two wheels, the CB500X covers all the bases. The upright ergonomics keep your peripheral vision wide, the slipper and assist clutch allows for a light pull on the lever, and the bike is narrow enough to squeeze through congested lanes even with its wide handlebars. The even torque curve provides smooth usable power perfectly targeted at city speeds, and the Adventure Suspension handles any road conditions you’ll find on your urban/suburban ride.

2022 Honda CB500X Review: MSRP

  1. The windshield has two height positions, but requires tools to change it. Decide what’s right for you before you start your ride, as you’ll need a hex wrench to remove eight bolts, reposition the windshield, and then reinstall the bolts. The standard position was high enough to send most of the freeway wind at me to avoid fatigue. Installed in the 1.5-inch top position, I didn’t notice any material benefit in wind protection, but I was more aware of the CB500X pushing through the air.
  1. One of the benefits of a mild-mannered mid-size bike is excellent gas mileage. The LCD dash keeps track of the engine’s current and average fuel economy, and it’s not uncommon to see the CB500X average 60+ mpg. Depending on how you ride, you could go 300 miles with the 4.7 gallon tank. Don’t wait for that last bar to start flashing, even if you theoretically have around 30 miles to spare – range anxiety ruins your ride on remote roads.

2022 Honda CB500X Review: Commuter Motorcycle Test

  1. Cargo haul options are available, along with a handful of other accessories to customize your CB500X. Whether you’re gearing up for weekend adventures or just needing cargo capacity for commuting or running errands, Honda Genuine Accessories offer a set of saddlebags, a trunk back and a tank bag. Other functional items include a center stand, hand guards, heated grips ($345!), 12-volt outlet, and light bar (an attorney-approved name for a crash bar).
  1. There’s a reason the CB500X has endured for a decade—Honda hasn’t lost track of its crowd for this accommodating bike. It targets a wide range of riders looking for an easygoing and versatile bike.

Department of Education Forgives $5.8 Billion of Corinthian College Debt


Photo (c) zimmytws – Getty Images

The US Department of Education is wiping the slate clean for 560,000 students who borrowed money to attend Corinthian College. The agency announced that it was repaying all of those students’ remaining federal student loans, an amount that equates to $5.8 billion.

The department said the release will include everyone, even borrowers who have not yet requested a borrower defense release. The discharge will be done automatically without any additional action on the part of the borrowers.

Solve a long-standing problem

It took almost three administrations to get there, but Corinthian students have the Biden-Harris White House to thank for their loan releases. Officials cited an ongoing commitment to helping student borrowers get the relief to which they are entitled. With Corinthian action on the books, the administration approved $25 billion in loan relief.

Bringing Corinthian to justice has been a personal crusade for Vice President Harris. She sued the institution when she was California attorney general in 2013, claiming the for-profit college deliberately misrepresented its placement rates and engaged in misleading and false advertising and recruiting.

“Starting today, every student deceived, defrauded, and indebted by Corinthian colleges can be assured that the Biden-Harris administration has their back and will repay their federal student loans,” the U.S. Secretary of Education said. Miguel Cardona.

“For too long, Corinthian has engaged in the large-scale financial exploitation of students, driving them deeper and deeper into debt to pay for promises they would never keep. As our actions today will bring relief Corinthian Colleges’ victims of their burdens, the Department of Education is actively stepping up surveillance to better protect today’s students from the tactics and ensure that for-profit institutions – and the companies that own them – do not s will never get away with such abuse again.”

The Department says it’s not over

The Department of Education has made it clear that its efforts to clean up the whole student loan mess don’t stop there. Last week it announced an overhaul of its student loan program in hopes of offering students and borrowers a full range of benefits, including loan releases.

If it holds, the promises made by the Department could change the student loan industry forever – from making student loans more affordable to preventing a future debt crisis to holding colleges accountable for leaving students with mountains. debt and without good jobs.

The Department also recently announced fixes to long-standing income-contingent repayment issues that will help thousands of borrowers qualify for forgiveness through this program, as well as 40,000 borrowers who qualify for public service loan forgiveness (PSLF).

American Flat Track: More of the Red Mile – Roadracing World Magazine



Mees extends his championship lead with successful double-handed performances aboard his FTR 750

Minneapolis, Minnesota. – It was an exhilarating race weekend for Indian Motorcycle Racing, presented by Progressive Motorcycle Insurance, with reigning SuperTwins champion Jared Mees bouncing back from a second-place finish at Red Mile I to come away with an impressive win the following night at Red Mile II. Mees’ victory extended his points lead to 109 in the championship standings, 22 points ahead of second-place finisher, and gives Indian Motorcycles its fourth overall win for the 2022 American Flat Track season.

The weekend’s success is all the more impressive given new American Flat Track regulations that require teams using the FTR 750 to use a 34-millimeter restrictor plate. This ultimately inhibits the FTR 750’s ability to produce power unlike competitor bikes where the restrictor plates are not required.

On the first night of the Red Mile doubleheader in Lexington, Kentucky, Mees fell to series rookie Dallas Daniels in a fierce battle that lasted throughout the 14-minute-plus-two-round main event. Mees and Daniels maintained a position too close to call for the majority of the race, swapping leads repeatedly. On the final lap, Mees made what he thought was the game-winning pass, but Daniels had different plans, blasting the defending champion to cross the finish line just 0.008 seconds ahead of Mees.

Mees’ true champion spirit was on full display the following night when he returned in front of another sold-out crowd for a rematch at Red Mile II. From the start, Daniels and Mees again led the pack, with Davis Fisher eventually joining them to make it a three-way fight for first place. In an explosive fight to the finish, Mees made a last minute charge, storming Daniels on the final lap to take the checkerboard and win. The win marked Mees’ 23rd win of his career, tied for fifth all-time in the discipline.

“It was an exciting two days of racing for Jared [Mees] and the entire Indian Motorcycle team, especially given the enormous challenges we have been forced to overcome with AFT’s newly imposed restriction plate limitations for our bikes,” said Gary Gray, Vice President Racing, Service & Technology for Indian Motorcycle. “It’s truly disheartening to see our FTR 750 so drastically weakened compared to the competition, but it makes the incredible efforts of Jared and Davis all the more impressive, and we couldn’t be prouder of them and their teams. for the skill and determination that finally put us on the podium.

“The first two rounds, Dallas [Daniels] and I had a fairly comfortable lead,” Mees explained his performance at Red Mile II. “It allowed me to hold back a bit, to follow him around to get a sense of where I could move. There is no room for error in this situation. When you decide to take action, you have to make it count, and that’s exactly what I was able to do. It was good to get the win, especially after coming so close on the first lap.

The 2022 American Flat Track season continues June 11 for the Laconia Short Track at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, New Hampshire.

Sponsors of Indian Motorcycle Racing‘s American Flat Track efforts include Progressive Insurance, S&S®, Indian Motorcycle Oil, Mission Foods, Bell Helmets, Drag Specialties and Parts Unlimited.

Complete Guide to Submitting the PSLF Employment Certification Form – Forbes Advisor


Editorial Note: We earn a commission on partner links on Forbes Advisor. Commissions do not affect the opinions or ratings of our editors.

Borrowers who are considering applying for Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF), or who are currently in the process of doing so, have probably heard a lot about the PSLF Employment Certification Form.

Submission of the PSLF form for employment certification is not technically required. However, it can help you organize your work history so that you are fully prepared to apply for the PSLF when you are ready.

If you’re a federal student loan borrower pursuing PSLF, here’s what you need to know about certifying your employment through this form.

What is the PSLF Employment Certification Form?

Working full-time with a government or qualifying nonprofit employer while making 120 qualifying loan payments is an essential part of PSLF eligibility. To confirm that you work for an eligible employer and to help track the payments you have made, you can submit the PSLF Employer Certification Form each year.

This PSLF form is a self-declaration process, and submitting the form regularly to certify your employers has many benefits.

The information you provide on each PSLF form is added to your student loan file. It’s a useful way to create a 10-year digital trail of your work history. The information on the form is used to determine if your employer meets the PSLF program requirements. It also creates a log of your number of qualified payments to date.

If you have trouble remembering to submit the PSLF form, the Department of Education recommends recertifying your employment at the same time you recertify your income-contingent repayment plan each year. It may also be useful to submit the PSLF form each time you change employers.

There is no rule against submitting a decade of work history in one block with your final PSLF application. The downside, however, is to seek the signatures of authorized officials from every employer you worked for in those 10 years.

How to complete the PSLF form

Whether you have made 120 qualifying payments or are simply recertifying your employment, you will use the same PSLF form. The Ministry of Education offers a PSLF Helper Tool who can determine if you work for an eligible employer and guide you through submitting the form.

If you prefer to manually complete the PSLF form using a paper document or PDFhere are the steps to follow.

1. Provide your personal information

The first section of the PSLF Employment Attestation form asks for your personal information. This includes your name, social security number, date of birth, address, phone number, and email address.

If at any time during your refund anything in this section changes, such as an address or last name, check the box indicating that a change has occurred.

2. State the reason for submitting the form

The next section is where you will specify that you are submitting the PSLF form to verify your employer. Check the first box that reads: “I just want to know how many qualifying payments I have made or if my employer is a qualifying employer.”

Then read the legal recognition. Certify that the information you have provided is accurate by including your signature and date in this section.

Point: At the top of the next page, there is a line to write your full name and social security number again. Don’t forget to add this information to avoid processing delays.

3. Have your employer’s authorized representative complete the following sections

All of Sections Three and Four must be completed by an authorized officer designated by your employer. This is often someone from human resources or sometimes your direct manager. Your workplace must complete all fields in this section, including:

  • Employer Information
  • Your start and end dates of employment (if applicable)
  • Employment status
  • Your average hours worked per week
  • Type of Organization
  • Type of employer service

The official should then include their own name, title, phone number and email address on the form. Make sure they sign and date their sections.

4. Submit PSLF Employment Certification Form

Once you have obtained your employer information and an authorized signature, submit the PSLF form by mail, fax, or through your student loan account.

What to expect after submitting the PSLF form

Regardless of how you submit the PSLF form, your student loan account will be reviewed to ensure that you have eligible federal loans. You will know if you are employed by a qualified employer and if your payments are eligible for loan forgiveness. After confirming your employment, you will get a total tally of eligible payments you have made to PSLF so far.

PSLF waivers are available for a limited time

The Department of Education has temporarily relaxed the normal PSLF requirements to qualify for loan forgiveness. This is a limited opportunity available through October 31, 2022. Here’s how the PSLF waiver has changed the program’s eligibility requirements.

Provides job flexibility when applying for forgiveness

PSLF program rules state that you must be employed by a qualified employer on the date you submit your application for loan forgiveness. Until October 31, 2022, however, the PSLF waiver allows you to get loan forgiveness even if you are not currently working for an eligible employer.

More payments qualify

Generally, loan payments that were late, less than the total amount owed, or were not made under an eligible repayment plan did not count as an eligible payment for the PSLF. However, under the time-limited PSLF waiver, you will receive credit for these types of payments.

Adds more eligible federal loans

The normal PSLF program only counted payments for direct loans in your progress towards forgiveness. However, the limited waiver expands eligible payments to include those made for Perkins Loans and Federal Family Education Loans (FFEL). Payments made for these types of loans can count toward your PSLF progress.

Includes teacher loan forgiveness period

Borrowers who applied for teacher loan forgiveness generally do not receive service and payment credit for that period. Thanks to the PSLF exemption, it counts for PSLF for a limited time.

To take advantage of these temporarily relaxed rules, you may need to take action before October 31, 2022. Some borrowers need only submit the PSLF form following the steps above, while others may need to be consolidating their federal loans before the deadline. Review the waiver details to see what steps you need to take.

The bike parts maker has grown with the popularity of cycling in the region | New


Photos by Christopher Tomlinson/The Daily Sentinel

Chip Barbieri is managing director of DT Swiss Inc. in Grand Junction, a subsidiary of a private company based in Switzerland. It has grown over the past 16 years.

IIt’s easy to assume that the American subsidiary of Swiss bicycle parts manufacturer DT Swiss AG ended up in Grand Junction because the area is such a hotbed for cycling.

In fact, the arrival of this subsidiary, DT Swiss Inc., in 1994 preceded the region’s rise to national bike prominence.

“Back then, Grand Junction, all the trails and the mecca of mountain biking, it wasn’t then. It was starting, but…it all happened after 1994,” said Chip Barbieri, who moved to Grand Junction 16 years ago to become CEO of the US subsidiary.

On the contrary, Barbieri said, the choice of Grand Junction reflected a Swiss-German style of avoiding taking huge financial risks.

“They’re not shy about getting into new ventures, but they’re certainly doing it in a, shall we say, financially secure way,” he said.

The company had an acquaintance at an independent distribution company that offered space in a local building that was not fully utilized. The idea was that if the company liked the neighborhood, they could eventually find their own building.

DT Swiss liked the area and within about a year bought their own building. Initially with three employees locally, the subsidiary now employs nearly 70 people and, after numerous extensions, now operates in four buildings on a mainly industrial campus.

Chip Barbieri is managing director of DT Swiss Inc. in Grand Junction, a subsidiary of a private company based in Switzerland. It has grown over the past 16 years.

The subsidiary was the first of many that DT Swiss AG has opened outside of Switzerland, as it globalizes its manufacturing and distribution to be closer to the bicycle manufacturers and other customers it serves.

The Grand Junction site started making spokes, DT Swiss AG’s initial product, early on, before starting to make wheels around 2006-07.

It also distributes some bicycle parts that DT Swiss manufactures elsewhere, handles sales and marketing for North and South America, and has a customer service center that also serves the Americas.

He’s expanded his local building space six times over the past decade, including a pretty big expansion last year, and is now renovating another building he bought last year to further expand his production capacity. .

“I can already tell you that this is not enough space. We’re probably looking at another expansion in the coming year,” Barbieri said.

These expansions reflect the cycling boom fueled by the pandemic and the growth of the e-bike industry which has opened up cycling to a wider segment of the public.

The growth of the Grand Junction operation has paralleled the growth of DT Swiss AG as a whole. DT Swiss AG was once a company whose previous owner decided it needed to be financially straightened out so that it could be sold. Barbieri said it was a tiny division of a company called United Wireworks, which dates back centuries, having made wire for everything from baskets to the chain mail that once protected soldiers.

DT Swiss developed as a spoke manufacturer during the 20th century. Barbieri said United Wireworks brought in three men to shine DT Swiss so it could be sold and after that the three ended up buying it themselves in 1994.

DT Swiss Inc. manufactures rims and other bicycle parts at its Grand Junction industrial complex.

Opening the Grand Junction branch helped the company better serve the needs of bicycle manufacturers like Cannondale and Trek at a time when those companies were producing a lot of bicycles in the country. Barbieri said spokes come in many sizes, so it was easier for bike makers to get spokes of the sizes they needed from DT Swiss in Grand Junction rather than having them shipped from Switzerland.

These days, the big bike makers no longer produce in the United States, having moved production to places such as Eastern Europe and Asia, Barbieri said.

But many smaller, typically high-end, domestic bike makers, such as Santa Cruz and Yeti, have taken their place. Barbieri said these companies are looking for flexibility in terms of supply, only bringing in products when they know what orders they have. These companies worked with the Grand Junction plant to ship products to tight deadlines, at least before the pandemic made those deadlines harder to meet.

COVID-19 has only complicated what has become in recent years a difficult freight situation for DT Swiss.

Barbieri said that when DT Swiss opened in Grand Junction, the town proved attractive as a “pretty cool area” with a pleasant environment, a workforce with a strong work ethic, taxes cheap and cheap buildings, and freight “didn’t matter,” at the time as cheap, he said.

He then added with a laugh that “today freight is a much bigger issue” with Grand Junction’s industrial businesses.

Freight is more expensive in the region these days and shipments take longer, making freight the main issue DT Swiss faces being based in the region, Barbieri said. Freight-related logistics issues are also proving difficult for manufacturers like DT Swiss. He said that in order to run a manufacturing operation, it is important to be able to rely on the consistency of freight services, in terms of deliveries arriving when they are supposed to arrive.

Now a truck that was supposed to arrive on a Wednesday could arrive on Wednesday, or maybe Friday, he said.

This stems in part from factors that have arisen as a result of the pandemic, such as the degree of availability of drivers, trucks and shipping containers. Barbieri said loaded shipping containers from overseas make it all the way to his factory, but now shipping companies want their containers returned to ports faster and pay trucking companies incentives for them. unload quickly, before the cargo reaches its final destination. This slows down shipping and creates the risk of damage when cargo is transferred out of containers before being sent on the rest of its journey.

Barbieri said he hoped to see fewer such problems as the logistical issues eased.

In addition to more expensive shipping, Barbieri noted that local real estate is also not as cheap as it used to be. It still compares favorably to Denver, but it’s more expensive than a number of other places in the country.

This has affected what DT Swiss has to pay employees and offer when recruiting workers in other areas, as well as the benefits it offers.

However, quality of life can be an important factor in recruitment. Mesa County’s flourishing as a cycling destination means people can work for DT Swiss “in an area with some of the best known trails in the world,” Barbieri said.

The area’s general outdoor lifestyle has helped attract DT Swiss employees, including Barbieri himself. He had worked in other states for companies in a number of industries, including previously in the bicycle industry with Cannondale. He said he and his wife, in considering moving to Grand Junction, considered the hiking, biking, skiing and other outdoor activities the area offers, as well as other factors such as the quality of local health care.

The affection of the employees for the region is something that the parent company in Switzerland takes into consideration, but at the end of the day it must be convinced that the American company is doing what it must do financially and by providing services and by manufacturing for customers, Barbieri said.

It is uncertain whether the company will remain in Grand Junction. He said that whenever he considers another local expansion, DT Swiss always considers whether to stay or go elsewhere.

“We are a business. We are an international company, so we always look at finances. … Until now, everything mathematically indicated that we were staying,” he said.

Barbieri said he doesn’t see that changing unless something drastic happens, like tripling taxes or doubling the cost of employees.

But as companies like his face growing challenges, he thinks entities such as the state should take a closer look at the financial tools they are making available to help communities both attract new businesses and keep those that already exist.

Barbieri sees other places going so far as to construct a new building for a business, and not require it to be depreciated over 20 years, in exchange for employing a certain number of employees during that time.

Although he is impressed with the Grand Junction Area Chamber of Commerce and the Grand Junction Economic Development Partnership, he said he believes they should have more incentives than they can offer.

“The bands here, in my opinion, do a better job than the ones with bigger tools, in my experience, so kudos to them,” Barbieri said.

Ruth Holcomb raced from Durango to Silverton on Saturday, in the Roostmaster on Sunday, then in the Subaru ATV race on Monday at this year’s Iron Horse Bicycle Classic.

“Honestly, I felt pretty good,” said Holcomb, who rides for the Bear national team. “I was worried my legs would be tired, but they actually got better.”

In the women’s pro race on Monday, she led from start to finish to cap her weekend with a first-place finish. She won the three-lap, 21-mile mountain bike race in 1 hour, 53 minutes, 0.7 seconds.

By the end of the second lap, Johnson, Grotts and Wells had separated from the peloton.

“I felt like I could ride at a pretty steady pace and some people were giving up,” said Grotts, who was racing his first race of the year.

“My goal was to stay patient this race and sit in the top two or three wheels,” said Johnson, who has competed in the U23 World Cup this season. “I waited for the last lap to attack.”

Johnson started to separate on lap three, but then slid around a corner and crashed, allowing Grotts to catch up and force a sprint to the finish.

Johnson, however, was able to recover and hold off Grotts to win the race by 13 seconds while Wells moved past third at 24 seconds.

“In the end, Brayden definitely had more power,” Grotts said. “But all together, I’m definitely happy.”

“I was thinking over there, those guys really know what they’re doing,” Johnson said. “It’s super cool to run with these guys and beat them.”

Davoust was fourth, 1:53 in 1:36:14.4, followed by Cupp (+2:16), Sippy (+2:45), Day (+3:37), Freeburn (+4:31) Jonathan Anderson (+5:36) and Beckett Ledger in 10th (+6:33).

Michael West won the two-lap men’s race 45-54 in 1:14:47.3. Gene Hilton took second place 41 seconds later and Gregory Strokes moved into third place 1:13 behind West.

Andy Fox won the men’s division 55-64, completing two laps in 1:27:51.1. Charles Brown was second in 1:28:44.4 and Kevin Barton passed third in 1:29:20.5.

Jan Bear, meanwhile, won the 65-plus men’s race after completing two laps in 1:32:49.8. Michael Hicks took second in 1:46:08.5 and David Rakita crossed third in 2:04:13.6.

“It’s always fun to race here,” Johnson said. “There are some super talented riders here and there’s no better training than tearing up with Olympians.”

“I don’t think I’ve ever smiled so much in a mountain bike race,” said Ruth Holcomb.

Harley-Davidson Pan America 1250 Special


“Can I tell you something? I am so impressed with how fast and nimble this bike is. It has a different personality than any Harley I have ever ridden, but it still flies perfectly,” says Axle Whitehead – motorcycle enthusiast, actor and singer – who recently put Harley-Davidson Pan America 1250 Special through its footsteps, taking it through Victoria and South Australia for a driving experience like no other.

That Pan America’s offering would be outside of what you would traditionally expect from Harley-Davidson was clearly the brand’s intention from the start of development. Built on a foundation of endurance, exploration and adventurethe bike is loaded with premium features designed to maintain comfort and control in the harshest environments.

As Victoria and South Australia have this kind of difficult terrain in spades, Whitehead decided to leave his home an hour north of Melbourne and drive west towards South Australia’s Flinders Ranges: “Once I got my hands on the bike, I thought I had to see what the limits of this thing are. I had already experienced how amazing it was on asphalt, but I had to see how it behaved on dirt.

Towards the hinterland

His ultimate destination was the Prairie Hotel – a beautiful venue in the town of Parachilna owned by his friend’s family and resembling the archetypal outback pub thanks to its striped tin roof and red dirt parking lot. . Once there, Whitehead could plan day trips through the Flinders Ranges and really test Pan America’s mettle. So he mapped out a route that would take him through Victoria and into South Australia, making sure he allowed a quick visit to the Clare Valley to taste – as he puts it – “the best Riesling in the world”.

After stopping to help out at his brother’s Hamilton farm for a few days, Whitehead began rolling northwest, eventually reaching Clare around noon the next day, where the combination of the atmosphere of the city and the easy ride of the Pan America saw him lose track of time.

“I found myself distracted in Clare in the best possible way. I became really engrossed in this town and the joy of just being on my bike and rolling around in the vineyards, having fun,” he explains. “Then I realized that time was getting short and I had better get on my way, as I still had four or five hours to go. So after leaving Clare, I found myself navigating a daydream within myself. saying, is it wonderful?”

Wrong way

Sadly the pleasures of the road are best enjoyed when driving in the right direction and after a few hours Whitehead looked at a sign saying he was 150km from Adelaide, triggering the realization that he was heading in the wrong meaning. one from Claire.

“I pulled out the map and realized I had been heading south for about two and a half hours in a PanAm induced reverie. I absolutely kicked myself. I turned around and absolutely took off. Fortunately, I arrived at Parachilna just at dusk. All of this goes to show how a good bike can make you lose yourself in the ride.

Over the next week, Whitehead used the Prairie Hotel as a base from which to explore both the Flinders Ranges and Pan America’s capabilities. It is by traversing the many gorges of the region, by tackling rocky and sandy tracks alternately, that cycling has taken on its full meaning.

“It was a great test for me to get to know the bike, see what it could do and push it to its limits,” he says. “It was an extremely nice bike. He did absolutely everything I wanted and as I gained confidence he was with me every step of the way. I was really impressed with what he could do.

“I had ridden the same tracks before on a different bike and this time I destroyed two sets of tires in a week. With the PanAm I had no problems. It was inside and outside the tires were great and it did everything that was asked.

A new kind of Harley

Although designed to tackle tough conditions, Whitehead found the bike had a refinement that set it apart from previous Harley-Davidsons he had encountered. The responsiveness of the Max powertrain delivered power so smooth he says it was “like having a piece of fresh toast and evenly spreading a big dollop of butter and jam. It was so well placed and gave you a great feeling.

But does Pan America still have that unmistakable Harley-Davidson DNA? According to Whitehead, it does, and more: “It takes you to a new level. Obviously being an adventure bike you can tackle a wider variety of roads, and the fly- Harley’s by-wire really shines in this context. It’s definitely worth its weight in gold on this bike. So the PanAm definitely has essential elements of Harley’s DNA, but it goes deeper. It takes it to a place I was shocked by. It’s like nothing else.

Whitehead hopes the new bike will encourage more people to get into the adventure and he thinks that – thanks to the bike’s new Adaptive Ride Height (ARH) feature, which automatically lowers the seat height when stationary – the Pan America 1250 Special will make this experience more accessible. .

“I think it’s a really smart move on Harley’s part,” he says. “I know from the conversations I’ve had that there’s a big hurdle to adventure for guys who have a bit shorter leg. Unless you have a lot of experience and are comfortable riding a bigger bike that only leaves you with one foot on the ground, it can really sap your confidence.

Fortunately, Harley-Davidson’s unique adventure bike is now much easier to get to grips with, thanks to their MY21 Pan American Funding Offer.

“I just hope people embrace the PanAm and at least try it, because as soon as you jump on it, it really sells out,” Whitehead concludes. “You just can’t help but have a great time.”

The Recorder – SUV collides with at least 5 motorcycles in Northfield; 7 injured, 1 in custody


Posted: 05/29/2022 20:51:26

NORTHFIELD – Seven people were taken to area hospitals after an SUV collided with at least five motorcycles on Sunday afternoon near the intersection of Route 63 and Route 10 after the ramp to water and Thomas Aquinas College.

According to Gill Deputy Fire Chief and Police Officer William Kimball, Northfield Police received a call at 1:03 p.m. reporting a crash between a single vehicle and five motorcycles. Of seven total patients, five were airlifted to area hospitals and two were airlifted, despite an air response consisting of three helicopters, Kimball said. The male driver of the SUV was taken into custody by the Northfield Police Department.

The incident is still under investigation by Northfield Police, Massachusetts State Police and the Northwest District Attorney’s Office. Kimball would not discuss the conditions of those involved in the crash, referring further matters to the district attorney’s office.

Residents who live nearby and first 911 callers John and Terri Drisdelle said the crash appeared serious. John Drisdelle said they went to see what was happening after hearing a loud bang followed by what “almost sounded like a party at first”.

“It sounded like you could hear music and people screaming,” he said, “that’s why we went there.”

He saw that the SUV was “almost V-shaped in the way it was broken up”. Terri Drisdelle said she saw people both on the road and on the side of the road amid leaking gasoline and scattered motorcycle parts.

One woman on the sidewalk, she said, “looked really bad”, while another “was on the road, sort of curled up on her side”. Later, Terri Drisdelle saw emergency personnel cut a man’s pants. One of the motorcyclists involved, she recalled, attempted to provide first aid to others and said he was a Connecticut-based EMT.

Agencies that responded included Northfield Fire Department, Northfield Emergency Department, Winchester, New Hampshire EMS, South County Emergency Department, Turners Falls Fire Department, Northfield Police, Gill Police Department, Erving Police Department, Bernardston Police Department, Massachusetts State Police, UMass Memorial Medical Center Life. Flight Helicopter, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Advanced Response Team Helicopter and Boston Med Flight Helicopter.

Kimball said around 3:30 p.m. that Route 10 between Moody Street and Wanamaker Street would be closed for the remainder of the evening for the incident to be investigated.

10 Reasons The Harley-Davidson Livewire Deserves More Respect


Now that the automotive industry appears to be heading towards an all-electric future, what fate awaits the motorcycle market? First, it looks like the transition to electric cars is inevitable, with governments imposing deadlines to ban petrol, diesel or hybrid cars in the future. For example, the UK has advanced its plans from 2040 to 2035. But so far motorcycles seem to have escaped such restrictive legislation. Either way, startups like Zero Motorcycles, Sur-Ron, Energica, and NIU are adding their line of electric motorcycles to the market. But they could only hope to see sales growth similar to that of their four-wheeled counterparts. Perhaps the entry of mainstream motorcycle manufacturers like Harley-DavidsonKTM, Yamaha, etc., will spur a rush into the eco-motorcycle market.

Harley-Davidson announced plans to go electric in 2014 with Project LiveWire, which includes thirty-three demonstration e-bikes that would undergo testing around the world. The Milwaukee-based automaker got to work on the feedback, and four years later the production model debuted at the 2018 Milan Motorcycle Show and went on sale in 2019. The HD LiveWire did it deserve the hype that followed its release? Well, here are ten reasons why the Harley-Davidson LiveWire deserves more respect.

ten Expensive but awesome

The 2021 LiveWire is an expensive motorcycle, starting at $21,999. That’s about $8,000 less than the list price it debuted with, and while it offers a more attractive entry point, it’s still quite unreachable for many buyers. After all, it’s a Harley, and HD is a premium brand with an average price of $20,338 that’s significantly more expensive than most of the competition.

This price, then, comes as no surprise given the branding and reality of electric motorcycles in 2022, and if you can look past the numbers, you’ve got a nice bike on your hands.

9 Has legendary Harley-Davidson build quality

Regardless of your opinion of Harley-Davidson, you can’t deny that they sure know how to build motorcycles, which they’ve been doing since 1903. They’re arguably the most traditional builder out there, and it’s great to have them. see among the first brands to enter the electric era.

It’s obvious that they’ve put their hearts into developing the LiveWire since announcing the project in 2014. You can only expect the bike to come with the high-quality build the brand is synonymous with. And with fewer moving parts likely to break often, it could end up being the best in the line yet.

8 The Electric Motor of Revelation

The famous V-Twin has remained the beating heart of Harley motorcycles for decades. But the brand’s future is no longer in the hands of the screaming eight-engine Eagle Milwaukee. The LiveWire’s Revelation electric motor could herald a new era for the American brand. The magnetic turbine motor produces 105 hp and 84 lb-ft of torque delivered instantly, making the LiveWire fast and effortless.

Additionally, the motor generates a haptic pulse, a subtle feature that can be turned up or down to remind you that you’re still riding a Harley. It activates in propulsion mode.

seven Instant Torque Delivery

It will probably take some getting used to on a bike without a clutch or shifter. But soon enough you start to engage in the quiet moments on the electric LiveWire. You hear a small hiss when accelerating and braking the engine. But perhaps the power delivery will intrigue you more than anything.

The Livewire has a seamless throttle experience where all the power is available immediately. Forget the days of increasing the power of revs and gears. This bike offers a truly unique riding experience that every gearhead should have.

6 Comfortable and controllable driving experience

Although full power is always available when needed, the throttle response is crisp and provides instant stacks of power. Delivery is smooth and easy to control, whether you want to accelerate through corners or move at a slow pace through traffic. Regenerative mode also adds more engine braking, so you don’t have to hit the brakes too hard all the time.

Ergonomically, the Livewire features an upright riding position that’s ideal for commuting. The seat is just 31 inches off the ground, so it won’t be a problem to get both feet grounded when you come to a stop.

5 Impeccable fit and finish

Harley has done a great job adapting the influence of their gas-powered bikes to the Livewire. At first glance, it is not much different from a traditional bicycle. They seem to have found a way to take advantage of their long experience and have built a bike that performs like the best electric motorcycles currently on the market. The attention to detail is undeniable and is what you would expect from a high end motorcycle.

The Livewire is a thing of beauty and proof that electric motorcycles can be both fun and cove-worthy. Plus, the bike comes with some features you won’t find from major industry rivals, like keyless operation and level 3 DC fast charging.

4 Arguably the most luxurious electric motorcycle on the market

The market isn’t flooded with electric motorcycle options, at least not yet, and that’s why the Livewire is easily the most luxurious electric motorcycle money can buy right now. It’s a bike for potential customers who already own other luxury items like smart homes, a Tesla, or an electric four-wheel-drive vehicle.

Harley openly markets the bike to the affluent customer demographic who have no problem going against the status quo. You won’t just be paying a premium for the Harley-Davidson badge, since you’re getting a well-built bike with some nice exclusive goodies for a real premium feel. It also has enough power and comfort to meet a wide range of riding needs.

RELATED: This Is Why Making LiveWire an Autonomous EV Brand Will Be Better for Harley-Davidson

3 Capable Sport Naked Electric Option

The LiveWire’s ergonomics are similar to a typical naked bike, standing in a slightly forward tilted position. Sporty enough without getting too aggressive. It will face direct competition from the Zero SR/F, which is just as fast, similar in size but with different riding experiences. The SR/F has a sportier feel, while the LiveWire offers more real range, speed and sound.

With the changing times, the Livewire offers a great option as a sporty naked bike capable of the future. If you suddenly develop an awareness of the environment while doing wheelies on your gas-powered super hooligan, then the LiveWire might be a good start.

2 Sufficient range for city driving

Many avoid electric vehicles for fear of running out of juice in the middle of a highway or on deserted roads. But battery technology has advanced so much that electric vehicles offer enough range for long journeys. The Harley-Davidson Livewire doesn’t come with continent-crossing range, but it’s good enough for daily commutes and random weekend trips on back roads without a hint of range anxiety.

The bike comes with a claimed range of 146 miles from its high voltage battery. Although, if you ride hard, you won’t come close to those numbers. But you can charge at any level 3 public DC charging station and go from 80% empty in 40 minutes, or a full charge in an hour.

1 Flawless electronics

The LiveWire customization options don’t come close to what you get on Zero motorcycles. This is only fair, considering that the first product of electric motorcycles for much longer, their technology has therefore had time to evolve. But the LiveWire is not a bare-handed type of bike, as it has pretty decent electronics.

The electronics on the LiveWire are borderline perfect and include state-of-the-art traction control, anti-wheelie control, ABS cornering lean angle logic and the Reflex defensive driving system. The touch screen is also intuitive and customizable.

Tennessee Motorcycles and Music Revival Holds Biggest Year Ever


NASHVILLE, Tenn. – They came in droves via sports bikes, cruisers, helicopters and motorhomes for the fifth Tennessee Motorcycles and Music Revival (TMMR) at Loretta Lynnit is historical Ranch at Hurricane Mills, presented by Harley-Davidson®.

Held annually on the 3,500-acre grounds of Lynn, one hour west of Nashville, TMMR, winner of the Cycle Source Magazine‘s Readers Choice Event in 2021, has once again proven that it offers something for all motorcycle and music enthusiasts of all ages. Thousands set up camp at the majestic ranch in tents, trailers, million dollar provosts and even glamping tents in TMMR’s biggest event yet.

With ZZ top icon Billy F Gibbons, country star Lee Brice (“I Drive your Truck”, “One of Them Girls”), Tim Montana, Ben and Noel Haggard and many more, the music was non-stop, as were the stunts, Harley-Davidson® bike shows, motorcycle races, hikes and demonstration rides.

“It takes a lot of hard work throughout the year,” said Tayla Lynn, granddaughter of Loretta Lynn and family ambassador for TMMR. “It’s definitely an event for anyone who loves music and motorcycles – that’s what my grandparents wanted when they built this place.”

The family is grateful to reopen the ranch to the public after nearly losing it last August to a devastating flood that left 20 people dead, including the ranch foreman. “The water was above our heads in some areas,” says Tayla Lynn. “It was awful, but in the end we put our grief aside to rebuild.”

First attendee Josh Max, a New York native who attended as a member of the media on behalf of Forbes, wrote that “part of the gentle but still exciting atmosphere [has] to do with the fact that the event takes place at the ranch of country legend Loretta Lynn. It’s a bit like being at grandma’s house, so you’re not going to step on her furniture with your motorcycle boots, or swear excessively, or do anything to annoy her so that she doesn’t invite you over. next year.” Read the full story HERE.

As the state of Tennessee’s largest “motorcycle and music” event, the four-day party has become a two-wheeled playground for motorcycle enthusiasts as much as a music lover’s dream with a wink. eye to the extraordinary talent of Cité de la Musique. “You may not know the name of an artist or band ahead of time, but once you hear them they become your new favorites,” shares event co-producer Carrie Repp. President of R&R Promotions. On top of that, vendors offered everything from clothing and motorcycle gear to art, while food trucks offered a plethora of food options and treats.

The ranch is located at 8000 Highway 13 South in Hurricane Mills, TN 37078. Check TMMR’s website for more information, motorcyclesandmusic.com, and check out the band’s social media sites on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube.

Harley-Davidson announced last week (May 19, 2022) that its assembly and shipping of all vehicles would have to stop.

The suspension of assembly and shipping was scheduled for two weeks, which means that there are still six days before the resumption.

Harley-Davidson’s decision to halt assembly and shipments was due to “great caution, [and] is based on information provided by a third-party supplier to Harley-Davidson late Tuesday (5/17) regarding a regulatory compliance matter relating to the supplier’s component part,” according to a statement released by the American brand.

Harley-Davidson did not say which company provided it with the component compliance information, so it is impossible to say which area of ​​the production and assembly process was affected and caused the shutdown.

Harley however also stated that the issue does not affect LiveWire, Harley-Davidson’s electrical brand, so it might be possible to assume that the issue is with components within the combustion structures (engine, exhaust, fuel tank, for example) non-electric bicycles from Harley-Davidson.

The information was released by Harley-Davidson on its Investor Relations page, and the production break deadline is expected to see it resume next week, Thursday, June 2. The news came amid rumors of a 975 version of the Pan America adventure bike, and amid Nightster’s new UK tour, which is set to end tomorrow (May 28, 2022) after starting on May 12.

How does the motorcycle fuel filter work?


We all know that fuel is essential to keep your bike engine running, however, keeping your petrol or diesel clean is just as important. If contaminated fuel enters the fuel system and engine, it can cause blockages, corrosion and wear, and eventually lead to fuel pump failure. Contaminated gasoline or diesel also burns less efficiently, leading to engine performance issues. For example, you may notice symptoms such as clicking and knocking, misfiring and stalling.

This is why fuel filters play a vital role in keeping the engine healthy. This component is connected to the fuel tank and collects pollutants as fuel passes through the fuel system. It filters out various contaminants, including water, rust and dirt, and is designed to withstand high pressures. The filter element is usually made from cellulose or sometimes microglass fibers, and the housing is usually made from a sturdy plastic or metal. The most common type used for motorcycles is the in-line filter, which is installed in the fuel line, between the tank and the pump or nozzle.

How often should I change my fuel filter?

Over time, the component will gradually clog due to contaminant buildup. This prevents the fuel supply from reaching the cylinders and reduces the efficiency of the filter element. Most manufacturers generally recommend replacing the fuel filter once every 20,000 to 40,000 miles or 3 years. However, much will depend on the durability of the parts and the quality of the fuel.

What to look for when buying a fuel filter

If you want to get the most out of your motorcycle‘s engine, it is advisable to opt for well-known and reliable brands that are approved by car manufacturers and comply with OEM standards. This way you can ensure that the part meets the vehicle requirements. The most recognizable brands in this sector are for example MAHLE, Mann and K&N.

Next, you’ll want to check the compatibility of the part. Some filters are universal, while others are more brand-specific. You should be able to find compatible parts by searching using the vehicle identification number or OEM part number. If you’re shopping online, there should also be a list of compatible vehicles next to the product description. For example, the The MAHLE ORIGINAL Classic Inline Fuel Filter (KL145) is compatible with a long list of BMW, Ducati, Cagiva and Triumph motorcycles.

Product dimensions may also vary. Important measurements include the inlet and outlet diameters as well as the length, width and height of the filter housing. These must match your vehicle’s requirements and the micron must be high or low enough for the filtration and pressure requirements. For example, this standard MAHLE ORIGINAL KL145 fuel filter has an inlet and outlet diameter of 8mm and a height of 94mm, making it suitable for a wide range of motorcycle models. It filters particles as small as 0.01 mm (10 microns).

As mentioned above, the housing of inline filters is normally made of a transparent plastic or a strong metal, such as steel. The advantage of a plastic filter is that you can see the condition of the filter element inside, so it’s easier to detect when it needs to be replaced. However, these parts are more susceptible to damage and can crack due to road impacts and stone strikes, for example. Metal is more durable and therefore better protected against leaks.

Vivian Campbell hasn’t written any songs on Def Leppard’s new album


Def Leppard’s new album Diamond Star Halos will be released tomorrow (May 27), which is their first release since 2015. While guitarist Vivian Campbell has contributed writing to all of their original albums since arriving in 1992, he hasn’t written any new songs for this one. .

“I just wasn’t prepared. I thought we were going on tour,” Campbell admitted to Greek publication Rock Pages, adding that he uses his phone to record because he doesn’t have a home studio.

The rocker admitted that he could have learned to work from his phone, but the rest of the band found a lot of songs very quickly anyway.

“It was coming fast and hard. I just wasn’t prepared for the record, to be honest, but I don’t think it’s a bad record as a result,” he continued. “I mean, the songs are great. There’s 15 of them and they cover a lot of different musical spectrums. I think we’re good. That said, I feel bad because I, you know, I have the I just felt like I was unprepared, didn’t do my homework.

Check out the full discussion below.

On the contrary, his teammate Phil Collen liked being able to work remotely and use technology to make Diamond star halos. In a new interview with Loudwire Nights host Toni Gonzalez, he said remote taping was the greatest thing Def Leppard has ever done, and he hopes they continue to work that way for them. future albums.

“When we did it that way, it felt like everyone was doing their part, everyone was doing their best,” Collen explained. “Everybody’s a big boy, they can tune their own guitars, they can sing in tune, they can get it right and then you send your best to Ronan McHugh – our producer in Dublin.”

NRN editors discuss single-seater cars and lessons learned


Today on Extra Serving, a podcast from Nation’s Restaurant News, NRN editors Holly Petre, Sam Oches, Leigh Anne Zinsmeister and Lisa Jennings spoke about the lessons restaurants have learned during the pandemic.

Zinsmeister and Oches spent the show talking directly to operators (some videos are available here and here), so they shared some of the lessons they’ve heard that operators have learned over the past two years – and that they will carry with them into the new future.

The team also discussed the industry’s resilience throughout this time, whether through creative solutions to the labor crisis, like today’s podcast guest, or technological innovations. or a host of other things.

Jennings spoke about the emergence of single-seater cars – which were on display at the Lakeside show – and the innovation of the car for delivery. Cars can park in motorcycle slots and go up to 80 miles per hour, but the driver does not need a motorcycle license to use it.

Next, listen to a conversation between Zinsmeister and FB Society CEO Jack Gibbons, who talks about leaning into his company’s “unicorns” — the things that set experiential brands apart — at a time when most companies were running in the other direction.

Harley-Davidson introduces second-generation Series 1 e-bikes


Serial 1, Harley-Davidson’s independent e-bike company, has been in business for over two years now. For their sleek appearance and high-quality construction, the first-generation motorcycles received virtually unanimous praise. Now, the company is returning to unveil its second generation of e-bikes, citing a new cooperation with cutting-edge Google Cloud technology.

The new pedal-assist e-bikes will include a host of new technical capabilities, including Google Cloud software. Indeed, Google Cloud capabilities appear to be the most significant addition to the Serial 1 MOSH/CTY and RUSH/CTY e-bikes, taking them even deeper into the world of futuristic IOT-enabled mobility gadgets.

10 apps that can help you pay off your debts


Almost everyone has debt. According to CNBC, an average American has $90,460 in debt, including personal loans, student debt, and credit cards. There are various reasons why some people cannot repay their debts. First, some people maliciously avoid paying their debts. However, most people take out loans without thinking about the debt repayment steps. Although the loan you take out is useful to you now, it becomes burdensome when you don’t repay it on time. If you belong to the latter group, there are apps that can help you pay off your debts. The apps will help you pay off debts by helping you formulate a payment plan and track your expenses. Without further ado, here are ten apps to help you pay off your debts.

10. Deleveraging.it

Undebt.it helps you pay off your debts by generating a plan. The app’s debt payment system uses Dave Ramsey’s Debt Snowball method. According to Ramsey Solutions, the debt snowball method is a way to pay off your debts from smallest to largest. Another strategy the app uses to help you pay off your debts is Debt Avalanche. In this plan, the application allows you to pay the debts with the highest interest rates first.

9. Qoins

Qoins is an app that saves you money. To sign up for the app, you will first need to link your savings account. Once you have linked your savings account, the app will automatically deduct money from it. This money is set aside to pay your debts. Luckily, you can decide how much the app should deduct. According to the madmanyou can set aside 10% or 30% for each deposit over $100.

8. Debt Repayment Planner

Unlike many other apps, this app has eight loan categories, including auto and personal loans. Sometimes your loan may not be related to one of these categories. Fortunately, there is a section that allows you to include it in the “others” category. Like Undebt.it, it helps you pay off your loan through a debt snowball and avalanche. Another debt repayment strategy offered by the app in addition to the two is debt snowflake. In debt snowflake, you make one-time extra payments whenever you can. So, in this method, you pay off your debt as soon as you earn an income.


It is an application that tracks your credit and monitors your debts. Although Capital One created the app, you don’t need to have an account with the bank to use this app. This application is useful for those who want to know their credit score. Having a low credit score means you won’t have access to future loans. According to Forbes, a credit score below 600 is poor, so you should strive to have a score of at least 600. Luckily, this app has a credit score simulator. Each time you repay your loans, the simulator awards you points. Since you won’t want a low credit score, you’ll feel motivated to repay your loans on time to boost your score.

6. Score

Tally is an app for people who want to settle their credit card debt. To get the most out of the app, you will need a minimum credit score of 660. To determine if you qualify for their services, you need to link your credit card. The app will analyze your card and keep track of your balances, due dates and interest rates.

OCD community members call on bike company to change name


A brand of protective bike covers sold as ‘obsessive cycling disorder’ has drawn complaints from people who say it is insensitive to the OCD community.

The company owner says the name fits the target market, but people in the obsessive-compulsive disorder community want to see it changed.

Disability researcher Marita Broadstock was walking with her family over the summer when she first saw the letters O, C and D carved into a bicycle cover in a parking lot.

“I saw the word OCD and in my brain I immediately thought obsessive compulsive disorder and then I realized they were actually doing a pun, a jokey pun on it, implying that cyclists who really enjoy riding, it’s like they have OCD.”

The cover came from Obsessive Cycling Disorder, a subsidiary of Matamata Saddlery, which sells specialist covers for transporting e-bikes.

Broadstock does not have OCD, but through her work she has become very aware of the condition and dislikes the name.

“I thought they were appropriating the acronym for a logo, which sheds light on a condition that is truly debilitating, and downplays the severity of the disorder and makes it a joke or a pun.

“By itself, that might not be seen as a big deal, but it’s emblematic, in a very public way, of a larger societal view, that OCD is just a fun behavioral quirk that many of us have.”

She contacted the company and received a response from chief executive Peter Gates.

“Matamata Saddlery has invested heavily in the brand and it is something we have chosen to maintain accordingly. However, we have taken a sensitive stance in our dealings with consumers and avoid making fun of the acronym and the associated condition.”

Broadstock isn’t the only person complaining about the blankets – TOC lawyer Marion Maw contacted Matamata Saddlery in July 2020 after finding out about the name.

“I felt like at that time they knew very little about OCD, they really had this kind of public misconception about OCD and didn’t really appreciate the context in which they were operating.”

Maw also received a response from Gates, who said the brand would not change, but the company would treat conversations around TOC with “serious consideration and consideration.”

Maw, who is also the administrator of the online support group for TOC Fixate, said she wants the name changed.

“I have no problem with the product, obviously. I think it’s great, it’s a small company doing its job. I just think they actually need to change the name of their product.”

Broadstock also wants to see the name changed.

Marketing expert Bodo Lang said a name like OCD would definitely stick in people’s minds, but for a small business it could be a risk.

“The safe bet is always to steer clear of brand names, slogans or advertisements that bother everyone, and so we try to hit the most powerful advertising message for the target market, without alienating other parts of the community.”

Matamata Saddlery would not accept an interview for this story, but in a written statement, Gates said that when he first chose the name OCD he received nothing but positive feedback.

“Most of our customers celebrate their commitment to cycling and the associated health and well-being, as well as the social networks resulting from the activity.

“The average age of our clients is around 65, they are worldly and compassionate people. There has never been anything unpleasant, demeaning or insensitive towards those affected by the disorder obsessive compulsive.”

He said the brand aligns with his customers’ obsessive desire for premium products and he responded quickly to any complaints he received about the name.

He said the company had received five complaints in the past two and a half years and four customers had requested that the logo be changed or not installed on the cover.

Tennessee Motorcycles and Music Revival wraps up with music, stunts and a chill vibe


Depending on who you ask, there are actually many reasons not to attend a motorcycle rally, most of them having to do with overly aggressive, drunken, crank yahoos who have sullied many events .

Welcome to the Tennessee Motorcycles And Music Revival, now in its 5and year and one of the most chilled, hospitable and easy-to-navigate gatherings a motorcyclist could hope to find of the many held each year across the United States. The atmosphere of about 6,000 attendees on the 3,500 acre ranch was relaxed and open, the people friendly and despite the hordes of machines, no traffic jams, overdoses or dramas.

It remains the largest event of its kind in Tennessee, featuring stunt shows, bike shows, field games, motorcycle racing, Harley-Davidson demo rides, off-road rides and music, music, music all day and into the night. by the two local talents, such as Cody Bolden, below:

Down to national headliners like ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons, who rocked the crowd with classic hits like “Sharp-Dressed Man,” “Legs,” “Gimme All Your Lovin'” and more.

Or legendary sidemen like Tim Watson, the man with the violin, who has shared the stage with countless legends from Tammy Wynette to Kid Rock.

The BC Moto Invitational, a showcase of custom motorcycles, featured selected craftsmen showcasing some of the best custom motorcycles in the country.

As usual, there was plenty to eat, and a surprisingly healthy portion for this type of event.

But don’t forget the dessert.

Part of the mellow but still exciting atmosphere is that the event is taking place at the ranch of country legend Loretta Lynn. It’s a bit like being at grandma’s house, so you’re not going to step on her furniture with your motorcycle boots, or swear excessively, or do anything to annoy her so that she doesn’t invite you over. next year.

There was plenty to do, see and buy, of course, from t-shirts to cigars to motorcycle gear and more, but there were also plenty of places you could take yourself and be quiet when needed, including beautiful coves or near Mrs. Lynn’s gift shop and museum.

“It takes a lot of hard work throughout the year,” said singer-songwriter Tayla Lynngranddaughter of Loretta Lynn and family ambassador for the event, in an interview that took place next to a creek where families splashed around.

“I’ve seen more kids this year than any other year,” she said. “I always try to post pictures of my kids to let people know it’s a family event. People can just relax. It’s authentic.

This year’s event turned tenuous last August, when a massive flood, considered one of the worst natural disasters in Tennessee history, decimated the area, killing 20 people, including the ranch foreman. “The water was over our heads,” Lynn said. “The area we are on right now was completely under water. It was awful, really awful.

There was nothing to do, ultimately, but rebuild and move on.

“We knew we didn’t want to go ‘crazy’ here,” Lynn said, referring to the rowdy atmosphere at other motorcycle events. “That was not my grandparents’ intention when they built this place. They loved motorcycles, they’ve always had motorcycles here, and it’s a family thing. So at the end of the day, if the family isn’t included, it probably won’t work. I think everyone understood that in the first year and was thrilled with it, and here we are.

“I didn’t see too much craziness at all. It is a kind of island of fraternity and camaraderie. We don’t necessarily want to make the event bigger year after year, just improve the quality as we go. We started from scratch. »

Lynn admits to being less than new to riding. “I don’t know anything about motorcycles at all,” she said. “I love motorcycles, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to master one. At first they tried to teach me all about motorcycles, but forget that. I just got a t-shirt from Harley that says, “That bitch don’t ride.”

The Bike Shed Motorcycle Club will finally come to the United States


When I finally tracked down Anthony “Dutch” Van Someren, he was sitting in the afternoon sun under a Victorian railway arch. It’s 5pm in London, and some of the more than 2,000 customers the Bike Shed Motorcycle Club welcomes each week are keeping staff busy, who sometimes appear in the background to stack empty boxes. As well as looking after customers, Van Someren and his team are also busy preparing for the 10th annual Bike Shed Show, which will take place May 28-29 at London’s Tobacco Dock. With over 240 custom motorcycles imported from all parts of the world, it has become one of the largest independent shows in Europe.

And as if that weren’t enough, he recently brought his brand of motorcycle-inspired hospitality to America, and on a grand scale, with the recent opening of The Bike Shed LA. The 30,000 square foot venue in downtown Los Angeles’ vibrant arts district features a 325-seat restaurant, bar, cafe, members’ bar, retail store, hair salon , a tattoo studio and event space. HotCars got a taste when we attended Ducati’s “Ready 4 Red” tour, the first event held at the new venue before it opened to the public. Also our first chance to preview the new DesertX.

Independence and freedom

For 17-year-old Van Someren, motorcycles were not only cool and exciting, but also a means of independence and freedom. He then blazed a trail in the media industry and, as a creative director, entering middle age, had an enviable portfolio and solid prospects. Yet when he reflects on his media days, it feels like success has been overshadowed by disillusionment. Van Someren’s passion for motorcycles would once again provide a route to independence and a means of escape, when a growing interest in the resurgent cafe racer scene led him to start a blog in 2011, which he called “The Bike Shed”.

From blogging to growing brand

Taking an idea from notional to tangible requires the will to act. The blood, sweat and tears part. Fast-talking and unapologetic Van Someren exudes a sense of action, and his abundant energy was no doubt instrumental in nurturing an idea for a motorcycle blog that can now lay claim to being the biggest independent of the planet and, over the course of a decade, grow it into an international brand with a footprint in two of the world’s major cities. He also thanks his team, many of whom volunteered early on, and his wife and co-founder, Vikki, also a longtime motorcyclist and successful event manager.

When HotCars recently spoke with CROIG Founder David Chang, he told us how quickly ideas can take off on evolving social media platforms, and we asked Van Someren if he’s had a similar experience. when he started his blog. “Facebook had just started to explode,” he told us. “In 2013, we had over 20,000 subscribers.” Van Someren wrote about the cafe racer scene and custom motorcycle shops, like Workhorse Speedshop and Madhouse motors, bringing together an eclectic group of enthusiasts from all walks of life, sharing experiences and ideas as the “new wave” brought new commitment.

A band of brothers

“We were talking about bikes,” he said, “but it was also about people. It doesn’t matter what you do, what background you come from; once you find out the other person is a motorcyclist , you’re on flat ground. It breaks down barriers and makes you feel part of a club. A camaraderie, Van Someren believes, is born out of a shared understanding of the inherent risks inherent in riding. leveraging that sense of community led to the creation of the first show, taking The Bike Shed from purely virtual to physical and bringing together builders, riders and enthusiasts with non-cyclists who shared an interest in the evolution of Culture.

Where engineering and art meet

Van Someren had chosen words to describe industry-run motorcycle shows, which we’ll paraphrase as “boring and soulless.” From the start, they decided to organize the first Bike Shed Show around a set of founding principles, which celebrate the custom motorcycle scene in a family environment, where all are welcome, with space to move, spaces to relax and quality. hospitality offered by independent companies. The first show, held under the old railway arches in Shoreditch, London, in 2013 was a display of 55 custom motorcycles from as far away as Thailand, including bikes like this Ducati (here -below); displayed on pedestals, with no strings or marketing gimmicks. Plus, an art exhibit, pop-up hair salon and tattoo parlor, and of course, decent food and drink, combined to attract over 3,000 visitors.

Sensing they had tapped into a new vein of interest, the Van Somerens and their team decided to put on a second, larger show the same year. It was a huge success, attracting wide attention, which included two notable motorcycle enthusiasts with capital to invest, and keen to see the show take on a more permanent form. With start-up capital in hand, the team drew up a business plan and in 2015 established the Bike Shed Motorcycle Club in the same trendy Shoreditch location as the first show. A social club and hangout catering to a younger crowd of cyclists and billed as the “Soho House for Bikers”. The original Bike Shed has become a Mecca for well-heeled London bikers and a destination for motorcycle enthusiasts. A number of the venue’s many backers include famous motorcyclists such as Charley Boorman, Nick Mason, Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson.

Inspired by motorcycles and open to everyone

The same principles that defined the shows applied to the new permanent location, and although the Bike Shed Motorcycle Club has a membership aspect, all are welcome to enjoy the amenities. The club has quickly established a reputation for friendly, efficient service and good food, and currently ranks in the top 3% of the 17,500 restaurants in London reviewed on Tripadvisor. The BSMC also hosted the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride from Central London.

Originally slated for 2020, social distancing laws have delayed the LA debut until May 2022. The LA operation will mirror the style and tone of its London-based predecessor, and the extra space allows for ample parking for motorbikes overlooked by the bar and the restaurant. Comfortable chairs in the shabby chic club style invite guests to relax and chew the fat. Motorcyclists interested in joining the Bike Shed LA as a member can apply through the website. Membership includes access to a dedicated bar and participation in regular meetings, organized outings and events.

The global pandemic has been a nightmare for the restaurant and hospitality industry, and the Bike Shed has had to adapt and cope with the circumstances as best it can. That hasn’t stopped the Van Somerens from appealing to their network of biker friends to help London’s most vulnerable people. They have transformed the Bike Shed into a distribution centre, served by volunteer cyclists, providing urgent deliveries of food, medicine and essential PPE to frontline healthcare workers and people in isolation. The couple have been recognized for their efforts in the Queen’s New Year Honors List and were recently awarded the British Empire Medal.

The road to follow

When we asked about the next steps for the Bike Shed Motorcycle Club, Van Someren was a bit more circumspect. “I would love to see a New York Bike Shed,” he told us, but LA’s maddening bureaucracy gave the team a reason to stop. “Who knows, we’re also looking for more business-friendly locations, like Austin, Texas, and we’d like to expand into Europe as well, maybe Portugal.” Like any growing business, a lot will depend on the success of the last venture.

The London location has built a tremendous reputation for excellent food and service in a comfortable and unique environment. If the Bike Shed can successfully replicate the magic that has proven so popular across the pond here in the US, we might yet see a BSMC NY or Austin, or both. As Los Angeles recovers from the pandemic, spacious, airy venues offering great hospitality are in high demand, and since California has the highest concentration of runners per state in the United States, LA is an ideal testing ground. In SoCal, we all know someone who rides, and as Dutch Van Someren would say, “The Bike Shed is for people who love motorcycles, and for people who love people who love motorcycles.”

Credello: Can you get personal loans for pet medical emergencies?


NEW YORK – May 21, 2022 – (



If you are a pet parent, you know that a pet is a family member who needs love, attention and care. When an animal needs emergency care, it can be difficult to find the money to take it to the vet. Can you use a personal loan for your pet’s medical expenses? Yes, but there are a few things you need to know first. If you are wondering what a personal loan is and where can i get a personal loanthis guide will help you determine the best options for you and your pet.

What is a personal loan?

A personal loan is a short-term loan that you borrow from a lender and repay over an agreed period of time. A personal loan can be used for various reasons, such as to cover unexpected expenses or to buy a house or a car.

There are several types of personal loans available, including unsecured and secured loans. Unsecured loans do not require you to provide collateral, while secured loans require some form of collateral, such as a down payment or temporary ownership of an asset.

Can I get a personal loan for pet medical emergencies?

Yes, you can get a personal loan for pet medical emergencies. However, there are a few things to consider first.

One thing to consider is the interest rate on a personal loan. The interest rate on a personal loan can vary greatly, depending on the type of loan you choose and the borrower’s credit history. For example, unsecured loans have higher interest rates than secured loans.

Another thing to consider is whether you will have to repay your loan immediately or over a period of time. If you need to repay your personal loan immediately, make sure you find an offer with a monthly payment that you can currently afford. You don’t want to make a deal that you can’t follow through with.

How can I benefit from a personal loan?

You may qualify for a personal loan if you have a good credit history. You may also qualify for a personal loan if you have a down payment. If you don’t have a down payment, be sure to find an offer with a lower interest rate than other loans you may qualify for.

What if I can’t get a personal loan? How can I pay for my pet’s medical care?

Suppose you can’t get a personal loan. In this case, you may be able to pay for your pet’s medical care with a combination of credit, borrow money from friends or family, and request a payment plan from your veterinarian.

There is also the possibility of taking out pet insurance as a preventive measure. Pet insurance works the same way as human health insurance. You usually pay a monthly premium and then, if your pet needs medical attention, the insurance company will pay the expenses once you reach your deductible. Pet insurance typically covers vet visits, vaccinations, and emergency medical expenses.

The bottom line

A personal loan may be your only option when it comes to taking your pet to the vet in an emergency if you are unprepared. Make sure you understand how interest rates work and how long you have to pay off the loan before you sign on the dotted line.
