Round up: New Motorcycles and Gadgets to watch 2016

G’day! Last year I had the pleasure, albeit a brief one, of meeting up with The Experimental Ghost and his Mrs, the Pillion in a Million IRL while I was up his way hawking my moto-art, and we just clicked, started yackin' like a couple of old school buddies who hadn’t seen each other in a million years.

Good peoples.

What does the colour of your motorcycle say about you?

I spend quite a bit of time looking at colour charts and colour matching using Copic Marker’s colour rendering system to image of motorcycles that I draw, and then turn into gift ideas for motorcycle fans, so it’s no surprise that I think about colour and motorcycles a lot.

But it took a weird turn the other day, I was listening to talk back radio and they had a neuroscientist talking about how colour affects so much of our decisions, and that a lot of them are innate decisions.

Choosing an Exhaust for a BMW R1200GS

At first I was pretty happy with the stock pipe on my BMW R1200 GS, but after about 7,000kms I knew it had to go; it just didn’t have the character, or note, that I liked.

I really wanted that angry twin note, I basically wanted it to sound like my old Multistrada. Thumpy, angry and loud!
