Save this up for the third week in September — you’re gonna need a new desktop/wallpaper and this Ural in the far north will be just the thing.
This one’s gonna be flagged on the score sheet for inappropriate use of Red Bull. Thought he copper work is first-rate on this Triumph.
Absolutely perfect. 1965 CA77 Honda. So well done, such a charming bike.
Science and Pictures
BBC provides another set of nice visualization tools. How big is that? Start here with an image that helps you to understand the size of the Eastern Pacific Garbage patch. If it was centered on Seattle, the eastern edge would reach Fargo. Seriously. Lots of other places, times, and object to look at.
The Solar Dynamic Observatory app on my iPhone is one of my favorite 2-minute time wasters. SDO now provides this image of the erupting sun with the lines of magnetic force drawn in. Confusing, swirling, wow.
Sex, drugs, and motos. “The results suggest motorcycles fulfill an appetitive need, activating an important node in the dopamine reward system.” Details of the MRI testing and words from the investigator James Loughead.
It wouldn’t be summer without cocktails on the veranda. But should you go off to some swanky veranda that has a bartender to prepare your cocktails or would you be better off staying home on your own comfy little patch of open air? To hunt prey of the appropriate species/gender you’ll probably need to go to one of those public spots but if you’ve already got a trophy or are simply tired of hunting you could do a lot worse than staying in (outside). Staying home is cheaper too. How much cheaper? Ask the cocktail calculator.
