Last Post
This is the last post for now. The year is over. its done. it ended.
its been a long journey but i am glad we made it. each one of us are going on our own pathways in 8 days. graduation is soon, and it is a time to celebrate.
Mr. Panton will always be in our hearts.
A few years ago, the Dyna range added the raw and ready Street Bob to its naked ranks and it became an instant classic.
The bobber has since been slightly restyled and, ahem, modernised with the ignition moved from the side to the centre console which is also more practical.
 It still features the mini ape hanger handlebars, chopped rear fender, rubber-mounted engine and black laced wheels.
But it also has a re-designed solo seat that is a bit harder, a new streamlined taillight assembly, more gloss blacked-out bits and the triple clamps are now separated into two parts. This make it easier to swap handlebars for even more customisation.
There is also a new Hard Candy Big Red Flake paint option.
The Street Bob might seem a little cramped in the rider position than many Harleys with its mid-controls but it is an “involved” ride that makes the pilot feel more connected with the machinery.
Those mid-controls also mean the linkage for the gearshifter is shorter which makes it less clunky and more positive.

2016 Roadster 1200

The new Roadster puts a powerful new level of sport into the Sportster. Its performance package includes 43mm inverted front forks with massive triple clamps, powerful dual-disc front brakes, premium rear suspension and new dual gauge instrumentation to complement the iconic fuel tank and chopped rear fender. 
The riding position is aggressive, but comfortable for long rides thanks to the 19” front and 18” rear offset-split 5-spoke cast aluminum wheels, lowered bars, mid-mount controls and a new two-up seat. Its 45-degree, 1200 cc engine delivers massive off-the-line torque.
It only takes three words to describe the look of the Roadster motorcycle: garage-built custom. You get blacked-out styling details, slammed bars, chopped rear fender, race-inspired graphics, a finned timer cover, and the slotted black exhaust shields.
It’s a low profile, with a nice, deep scoop to keep you firmly planted under acceleration,and it puts you just 30.9 inches off the ground for a low center of gravity and confident handling, additionally at the front of the Roadster motorcycle, you’ll notice a new 43 mm front suspension with inverted forks. They feature cartridge damping and the brawny look of massive new triple clamps. Theykeep your rubber on the road when the pavement gets rough.
The factory-installed next-generation security system features a hands-free fob that automatically arms and disarms the vehicle’s electronic security functions as you approach and walk away from the bike. Stick the fob on your ignition key ring and let it do all the work. It’s this attention to detail and security that make Harley-Davidson® motorcycles unique.

My dream motorcycle 

The stance of the Diavel is that of readiness, dominance, and confidence bordering on superiority. Lateral radiators add muscle to its broad "shoulders," which then taper down across the engine and into the belly-fairing with its oil cooler, giving shape to the athlete.
A massive 240 section rear tyre is the perfect example of how Diavel designers used a no-compromise attitude when applying their wish list of features. The sheer width of rubber communicates so much power and style that the R&D team vowed to find, and succeeded in finding, a way to make it handle - even if they knew the image would send a seismic shock through the industry. 

This is my dream motorcycle. The 2015 Ducati Diavel is known to be used in the recordings of the show The Arrow.
With its 162hp and 96lb-ft of torque, the Diavel engine defines authentic Ducati performance. 
Thanks to dual spark plugs, high-compression pistons, and revised injection spray targeting, the engine's torque curve is strong and smooth at low rpm, which allows a smooth cruising ride but also works the same way through a wide rev-range.
The oversized exhaust pipes are part of a system which have been designed to maximise power and improve the efficiency of the Diavel. The system is equipped with a lambda probe for each individual cylinder, in order for the fuel injection to be optimised and managed autonomously via the large airbox. The vertically stacked cannon silencers are equipped with catalytic converters that ensure compliance with Euro 3 standards, while the electronically controlled adjustment valve optimises exhaust pressure. The exhaust system is enhanced by the manifolds, treated with black ceramic Zircotec, and the silencers, with a brushed steel outer cover.

Harley Davidson XL883N Iron 883

             This will be my second motorcycle for sure. After riding with Harley people i fell in love and decided to do a test drive on one of the big bikes. the difference between a motorcycle like this and a sport motorcycle like mine is the seating position that changes the most. On a cruiser, the rider is much more comfortable, while on a sport one, the rider sits closer to the gas tank, making it more aerodynamic.
The difference in power is another big difference, a harley like this has almost 900cc, compared to the one i have which has only 300cc meaning it can cruise with more comfort at high speeds. The first gear on the harley probably goes op to 50mph, while on my bike it goes up to 25.

Another thing i noticed from the test drive is the weight difference. A Harley Davidson is made out of iron, making it extremely heavy. My CBR300r is made out of iron and the frame is made out of plastic, meaning that it is better for turing and moving around.

Before my motorcycle I owned an Audi A4 that was pretty good on gas. in a month I would spend about 70 dollars on gas.
Now, 70 dollars can buy enough gas for 7 months to ride my motorcycle. not only financially, there are many benefits for having a bike.
Compared to an SUV that emits 205 grams of Co2 per kilometer, a motorcycle like the one I have only emits about 100 grams, it is half of what a car produces car.
The average mileage I get on my motorcycle per gallon is 70 miles compared to a car that usually does 25 miles a gallon.

Riding with someone 
This blog is dedicated to Little Messi, AKA Antony.

When having a passenger on the motorcycle, there are a few things to look into. The tire pressure, the suspension, if the passenger has appropriate gear, and if they have any experience with motorcycles.
Personally, i hate having someone on the back of my bike because it makes it slower, everything changes, the acceleration, the stopping, how you make the turns, and many other riding techniques. 

The heavier the person, the slower the motorcycle gets and since i like to go fast, i don't like having a fat person on the back.
Other than slowing me down, riding with a passenger raises the chance of an accident significantly, and having the responsibility of someone’s life does not feel good for the rider.

In Florida, the law is that both the rider, and the passenger must wear a helmet at all times when riding the motorcycle. The fine if someone does not follow the law goes up to $250,000 and time in prison for negligence.

Last week, little messi wanted a ride home, so without thinking, he jumped on my motorcycle not realizing that the right side for going on is the side that does not have the muffler. Next thing he knew is that his skin came out and got stuck on my bike, and Antony was laughing about what had happened.
The burn mark is going to stay on his leg for many years because it will leave a really bad scar.

Motorcycle Stereotypes

There are a few motorcycle stereotypes that everyone thinks that is true, but most of them are not.
The most common one is that every motorcycle rider has a death wish. This is not true, riding a motorcycle is dangerous, but it does not mean that we are all going to die. One of the things that I hear the most is " You are going to die." So far, I have never been close to a close call on the streets, but I understand that I could happen at anytime, and that is the reason I enjoy riding. It makes me feel alive.

Another stereotype that people say is that all motorcycle riders wear leather and listen to rock. Leather is a good material because it protects the rider in case of an accident. However, there are other materials that are just as good; I own a professional race motorcycle jacket, which is made from a special material that does not rip, but the bipolar weather in Miami makes it hard to wear it. About the rock music, I listen to it sometimes.

Having a motorcycle does not mean i do wheelies and stunts with it. In my opinion, motorcycle stunts are stupid and useless. Every single person who does stunts has fallen or will fall at one point, and why would a person do something knowing that he or she will get hurt. 

There are more negative motorcycle stereotypes than positive ones. A positive stereotype is that people think you're badass for riding. Just like any other stereotype, the negative ones are not true: but the good ones are.
