April 12, 2019
With Easter weekend around the corner, and with good weather in large parts of Europe and North America, you suddenly see people riding bikes of whom you’d never thought they’d own one.
I just got back from a work trip in southern Florida. Unfortunately I was a bit too late to make it to the Daytona Bike Week.
The Daytona Beach races and Bike Week have been a tradition since 1937 and attract hundreds of thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts (mostly Harley Davidson, Indian and other choppers).
Claiming to be the world’s largest motorcycle event, the parades on and around Daytona Beach were from March 8 to March 17th – have a look!

BIG SCENIC UPDATE
Highly requested features – part 4
Q: When is the big update ready? A: June
Klim Forecast Split Finger Gloves
As a rider hailing from the Netherlands, rain is not something that stops me from getting to my destination, but not being able to use the clutch or front break does. Having your gloves soaked is just terrible and can even become painful if you ride in near freezing temperatures. Therefore, I recommend Klim Forecast Split Finger gloves. They keep your hands nice and dry and block the rain and wind from entering your gloves. Live long and prosper 😉
Windscreens and other causes and solutions to Helmet Noise
Brake pad life really depends on your driving style, the weight of the bike and the terrain you’re driving in. In a traffic-jungle like Mexico-City, I noticed that I burn through rear-pads at breakneck speed, but I’m still on my first pair of front brake pads after almost 30,000 km / 18,640 mi.
