Harley vs. Japanese

Harley vs. Japanese. The American firm “Harley Davidson” felt for the only weak point of Japanese firms: lack of flue to the beginning of the century traditions. Since the “Harley” has long passed for 100 years, they do not hold the traditions, and Americans are enthusiastically developing a gold mine. More distant from the 1993rd top designers Willie G. Davidson (a descendant of the founder) has demonstrated the crowd in Dayton reporters a new model in the style of 30-ies, the symbolic name “Nostalgia”. Although all the Japanese companies produce models of motorcycles “by Harley” Americans reasonably believe that the original is always better to copy. Alloy modern technology and style.

ATV from “Tulitsy. Mad handles.

ATV from “Tulitsy. Mad handles. Continuing to talk about home-made designs, presented at last year’s contests, we want this time to stay on a relatively small group of three-and four-wheeled vehicles for special purposes.
Their authors have pursued the understandable purpose: to fill a gap in the type, do for yourself something universal, which would enable and drive like a car and plow like a tractor. And besides, would remain relatively cheap – as a motorcycle.
It is known that the more universal than some kind of product, the more it loses in every single quality. Probably, it is known and amateur designers, members of our competition. If, nevertheless took a risk, plunged into the maelstrom of the unknown, so too was great need for such carriage.
To his credit: artisanal single motor out of the woods: they managed to not only solve many technical problems but also find new approaches that show, perhaps even new directions for the national motopromyshlennosti.

Mototouristik

Mototouristik. Who had seen all the vaults of the Kazan station in Moscow than it is difficult to surprise, and by the appearance of the luggage outside the four dilapidated motorcycles long remained unnoticed. As long as strict receptionist, hopping from one group of women – from carpets to another similar – with washing machines, not stumbled suddenly motorcycle and not looked at their eyes.
– What’s this? – Dumbfounded, she asked. – And do not look like they are sports! There are huge tanks, and no thorns! ..
Evidently, I saw it once on TV, and maybe had to send bikes to race on ice, with their memorable appearance.
– So it’s very special – we shouted in unison – it’s this, well … in! To rally! – He remembered someone had a magic word, become familiar in the inscriptions on bags and boxes with toys. The unpleasant incident was closed.

Indian – American legend

Indian – American legend. I remember with what interest I saw in my childhood old Russian automotive magazines. “Cars FORD – the most popular Rb Russia”, “Victory BENTS in Russia in 1913”, “English without valve cars DAYMLER – magazin cars 3. I. Kvachadee. Bolshaya Dmitrovka, 23. And among these and the numerous other advertisements – page with four Indians in the corners laughing: “INDIAN motorcycles are indispensable to lyubyh roads.
Years later, one of the first Moscow parades auto-moto-old I saw these bikes “alive”. Who arrived on the “Indiana” from Estonia guys were terse: motorcycles speak for themselves. Drop-shaped fuel tanks, high “horn” rudder, wide tires, the powerful roar of the lower valve engines. One can understand the enthusiasts on both hemispheres, which are now believed that nothing better on two wheels has been established.

Motorcycle – safety on the road?

Motorcycle – safety on the road? Safety on the road – not an abstract concept. This is the result of many factors unrelated visible and sometimes invisible causality. Responsible Chief GU GAI MVD USSR B. KORYAKOVTSEV.
– On a motorcycle I “otkatal” more than 10 years. Started in 1960, the Inspector tool in the Tselinograd and completed in 1973 in Alma-Ata is the head office GAI Interior Ministry. I remember this time as the best. Maybe because it is generally remembered youth?
On a motorcycle I was, as they say, inseparable. Always admired his agility, ruggedness. He gave and a very special feeling of unity with the road and nature, sense of speed and pleasure from the process of movement. In addition, the motorcycle – the best way to hardening of the body.
Central Kazakhstan – pretty cool area. And we started going out with April and ends in October – means the season lasted six months. And no one complained to health: indeed, the inspector hurt much less then than now.
To tell the truth: I do not pony by May, why now is the motorcycle does not have in our front-line units of the former popular? At the first opportunity inspector strive to dive into the cabin of the car and sit behind the wheel of the motorcycle, though serving a fault.
By the way, recently I was in France and saw a motorcycle owned by employees of traffic police. Two motorcyclists were accompanied by our delegation on a fairly busy road with dozens of unregulated intersections. Without the hustle and bustle they managed to overtake us, to block the intersection, clear zone, along which our machines, to prevent a counter-trans port – and in doing so we never for a moment left without cover. These were the professional class. And do their job, they could only be on motorcycles!
Each year, through the fault of the owners of individual motor vehicles are more than 75 thousand traffic accidents, in which 12 thousand people are killed and more than 80 thousand are injured. This is even more frightening that such an accident killed and injured, as a rule, young people – our future, our hope. Sad peak was reached in 1989, when 82,733 road accidents killed 13,276 people and maimed 89,926.
In many developed countries, these figures are much lower anyway, the share of motorcycles in the overall accident rate for 23% of all accidents, 20% died and 23% of the wounded.
– Perhaps you could name the most frequent violations of the Rules of motorcyclists!
– According to our statistics, motorcyclists often err speeding; often ignore traffic lights, traffic controllers, violate the rules of the road markings and overtaking. Last
while the cases of departure on the road without registration, driving without documents, without helmets. It worries us is that behind the wheel of a motorcycle often sit down drunken drivers.
Because the rider is less protected, then, of course, when a traffic accident and he and the passenger are almost always suffer. In any case, the severity of the consequences there are always higher than that of motorists. The situation is exacerbated by the overall low-skilled riders: it behind the wheel again, sit mostly young people.
– In the cities, and in the villages has become a popular phenomenon, which we call a single word: “bikers”. Your opinion about this!
– For us, the police employee, baykerstvo quite specifically. It is riding on motorcycles, in large groups at high speeds, with the calling to the fracture of traffic regulations and that no less than is typical – behavior. It is unlikely to work with this group of drivers can count on the success of some liberal measures: from that violators only pluck. I am convinced that there needed more stringent administrative sanctions.
Today’s legislation provides that “drivers of motorcycles and other trans tailors funds for participation in the group moving into cities and towns of interference with traffic or safety, subject to a fine of 50 rubles. or disqualified driving for up to three months. ” Recently in Moscow penalty is increased to 100 rubles. But I can not say that it dramatically changed the picture for the better. The mechanism of punishment does not work when a motorcycle is no room, and the driver – no rights, no money. You’ve got to think about and to legitimize the process of compensated exemption of motorcycles from such breach lei. The work that is underway.
– What advice would you give our industry in terms of improving the quality of a motorcycle!
– Studies in the All-Union Research Centre for Traffic Safety (VNIITSBD) Ministry of Internal Affairs of the USSR, showed that in 30% of major trauma are the elements of the wheel controls, wind shield and elements of his mount, side trailer.
The reason 70% of motorcycle collisions with other vehicles is their lack of visibility on the road.
Technical fault – even if the cause of approximately 10% of road accidents.
Distribution of accidents by type of faults in domestic motorcycles following. Depending on the motorbike cycle on the brake system malfunction must 22,4-31,2% accident; steering – 3,1-10,3%; wheels – 7,2 – 13,5%; lighting – 31,0 -48.0%.
These data clearly show that at first do is to research and development work.
In our view, given the analysis of accidents, we must first improve the system of electric motorcycles and external lights. To equip the bikes running lights used in the daytime. Change the color of motorcycles: make it more colorful, noticeable on the road.
Requirements for effective braking mechanisms remain virtually unchanged since the mid 60-ies and can not stimulate the developers. Until now, heavy and medium-sized motorcycles, except for one mo Delhi IL, are not equipped with disc brakes, although almost all similar models overseas have any.
Need to develop service motorcycles. Currently, technical failures on motorbikes occur 3-4 times more often than cars.
– What steps taken or planned traffic police to improve the accounting and registration of motorcycles, especially in the countryside!
– Indeed, in rural areas, as shown by expert estimates, up to 40% of motorcycles are operated unregistered.
Currently, the republican and regional units of D oc auto inspection is recommended that the registration of motorcycles in the district offices, traffic police, that is, to approach the place of registration to a residence of citizens. It is necessary to strengthen controls on the line, as well as the strengthening of measures of administrative responsibility.
You can not make this type of transport in the murder weapon! And especially I would like to draw the attention of parents. As the theater begins with a hanger, and the way rider starts at home. How parents can calmly look at how their son is barefoot, wearing only shorts, no helmet leaves on the road? But this can be seen quite often, especially in rural areas. More culture, more human relationships and respect.

Motorcycle “Tula” ТМЗ-5.951

Motorcycle “Tula” ТМЗ-5.951 since its release in 1986, became very popular among motorcyclists, especially in rural areas. However, during the operation revealed some shortcomings of the design. Tula Machine-Building Plant named after VM Ryabikova constantly working on them, were taken into consideration and advice us on avtopoligone which an annual certification test motorcycle. The result was a new model – ТМЗ-5.952.
“Tula” was integral fuel tank without fixing brackets (that was a lot of comments because of a leak to the places of welding), and without connecting benzoshlanga causing no comfort when removing the tank, combined with the soft suspension to the frame is dramatically increased resource work site in general, and comments on the fuel tank is not even after driving 30 000 km. New original design toplivozabora ensures full use of gasoline stocks. At the tank now costs tube with an automatic valve, excluding fuel spill in the fall,
The changes also affected the engine: used narrower piston rings, which are made from wear-resistant coating (they are now chrome-plated), which increased the durability of the cylinder-groups and reduced noise. Declined races move fuel (it is 3.5 liters per 100 km) and emissions. By the way, reduce the harmful effects of a motorcycle on the environment designers have paid very much attention. Alterations to the fan casing lowered heat-stressed engine and improved appearance.
As a result, work on the gearbox Tula were able to pick the most advantageous ratio of ratios, now 4, I send a few close to the third, the motorcycle has become a dynamic and “tyagovitee.
Introduced a new telescopic front fork, it is lighter than the previous 2 kg through the use of high-strength alloy steels and aluminum alloys. The design of feathers fork similar to that applied to IZH – Planet Sports.
Look at the wheel. Immediately apparent to the clutch lever and hand brake: they are comfortable and beautiful, providing a full clutch and front brake reliable operation due to the large progress in the cables.
New wings were a little more, it will be appreciated by rural motorcyclists. The wings are made of plastic, generally all fiberglass parts “Tula” replaced with polyethylene, and now the weight of plastic parts that do not require care, not corrosive, is 6 kg on a motorcycle.
In addition, introduced a large number of those “little things”, which together improve the consumer qualities of the motorcycle. For example, change the design of plastic sleeves, which is used to mount protective covers her ass chain (old quickly put out of action). Probably no need to explain what does it matter. Modified design of mounting the battery and access to it has become easier. Implemented holders plug. True, the plant has other reserves. There are designs colored inserts on the side panels, inscriptions, performed stripe (they are very good appearance). KB Factory has developed a complete set of additional equipment: wind shield, roll bars, rack. Incidentally, all this has already passed the test. And if you go into serial production, the consumer will say many thanks to the plant.
In conclusion, reported that the results of certification tests in 1990 at the site NAMI of 20 innovations in 1915 found to be effective.

Russian race bikes. Dirt, sand, mountain serpentines, ford … Four stages “Russian enduro 2009”-four entirely different route. The battle for the title turned out spectacular.
In recent years, all stages of the championship of Russia on enduro took Dmitrov near Moscow. The route is laid down on the forest roads and trails that do not vary. Last season, everything changed. The first phase took place in Krasnodar Krai, near Tuapse. The most interesting and complicated part of the race took place right on the rocky bed of a shallow mountain stream.

The most spectacular DPKO (ALD – Cross section of a length of about 6 km, which should pass as quickly as possible) was the route Supercross motodroma “Sitez. On the first day of competition the weather allowed the participants to pass all three scoring circle route without too much trouble. The next day a little rain, and here the clay passes of the North Caucasus separated boys from men. The track has become a summer skating. Of the 65 participants, more than half (!), Including enduristy with experience, not able to drive more than one circle. He distinguished himself as the master of sports Alexei Kolomytsyn (Honda CRF450R, Factory Cannibal racing, Kaluga) – he was the only one on this day went the distance without a single penalty (Alex was the best and the first day of competition).

David Mann.

Being engaged in design of this site, looking for pictures on the biker theme. Not so much art managed to get in an Internet. And so, accidentally stumbled on a collection of works by American artist David Mann.

They seemed to me quite yet entertaining. A little naive. It’s like somewhere chance to hear the sound of Uriah Heep, or Animals, like an echo of the 60’s. An echo of the past lugging his banner of rock and roll. Where hippies – flower children, and bikers – big kids roads. Frankly, after seeing these (though not even a very intricate images), even as the mood – it has risen. What we know about American artists? Personally, I am familiar only with the work of Andy Warhol, that’s all perhaps.

So, I represent your attention – David Mann, he is the most famous and popular artist, risuyuschim on temu.Kazhdy biker who was flipping through and reading (who do not have problems with English) magazine Easyriders could see his work, printed in poster form on the domestic turn. Art Mann clearly and vividly reflect the humor, charm, challenges and romance bikers life.

The last motorcycle David Mann.

We are all mortal, alas, September 11, 2004, in Kansas City, died David Mann – Artist, which can be called a painter of the biker culture. He was just a biker and only drew people on motorcycles. But how he did it! His paintings have forced people to barter without regret everything that they had, for a good chopper and an endless road. Mann died the following day after he turned 64 – the magic figure for the generation of The Beatles, signifying the arrival of old age. But this is so, by the way …

Among the fans was David Mann Paul Totul Sr. – a leading and main generator of ideas of “American Chopper”, and concurrently head of the family company for production of unique design choppers.

Sled Dog presentation was held at the Portuguese track in Portimao, which is quite logical – the bike “taught” to ride, in addition to the factory test, Ruben Chaus and Troy Korsør throughout the season WSBK.

Electric bike.

Electric bike. When the die is already a feature of this dinazavr, poisonous environment – the internal combustion engine? I personally am waiting period for electric and elektrobaykov.
You will not laugh! Oil tycoon has already enriched enough, let them go nafig need a change of eras.
The International Federation of Motorcycling (FIM) approved the calendar of world championship auto-racing circuit for elektrobaykov (e-Power International Championship, or EPIC). It includes four phases – in France (twice), Spain and Qatar, and opens April 18 contest at the famous track of Le Mans. However, the final calendar is approved and if the championship would be interested in other countries, its geography may expand. What kind of motorcycles will take to start next championship?
Such as English Mavizen TTH02. In the chassis, taken from the sportbike KTM RC8, installed electric Agni and a set of batteries, weight machines without battery -110 kg, and with it the -160 kg. Get up to 40-80 km in “combat mode” (cruising range is strongly dependent on the profile of the route). The company hopes to release in 2010 was 50 units – for $ 45,000. Incidentally, it was her bike – then called Agni x01 – won in 2009, the first Tourist Trophy race for elektrobaykov.
Note that the prices of electric cars and bikes especially high, a tacit conspiracy of large corporations.

While designers of sports bikes and off-road motorcycles are fighting for every gram of weight, the creators of such vehicles as the Triumph Rocket III Roadster, consider: the more the better. Engineers who restored the company Triumph, encouraged by the new owner, John Bloor, first created in opposition to modern motorcycles Japanese concerns, then played in the nostalgia with a two-cylinder models, and then think: Do not create something that the world has never seen before?

First, on the old – very old-M-66 and M-62, forty and fifty years ago, respectively. Then the new-Gear Up and “Retro” with the engine 750 cm3.

So, your scooter “ant” is often broken.
Gy Gy. First, we note that the motor scooter cargo operations in more stressful conditions than any road bike, and gear ratio transmission is higher: otherwise to take one or other cargo.Therefore, to achieve the same speeds, the engine must develop greater speed, and hence reduces its life, maintenance must be carried out more frequently, the amount of work will be increased. However, techniques and procedures of repair operations for the most part do not differ from those that have to do on a normal “Tulitse” or any motorcycle.
The most common defect is present in the engine – the destruction of the bearing cage in the lower crosshead. This may be caused by depletion of the mixture and the related lack of lubrication, improper choice of oil or a violation of its proportion of the fuel, poor mixing oil with gasoline, etc.
Lean is not only due to clogging the carburetor. For example, is mixed with fuel oil can settle in a settling tank benzokranika and clog its grid. If the same net long been cleaned from mechanical impurities – expect trouble. Be careful when installing septic tank lining: it can block the fuel channels. Reshimsya remind about the banal – clogging the vent gas tank – how many engines were “flogged” for such “small”.

Bikes on the ice.

Summer, heat. I wanted something nice and cool. Prefigure the ice and snow. ))) I want to talk about such a bike show, a motorcycle on ice. Today, these types of competitions are held throughout the cold and snowy regions of the planet. In Russia in particular. And Russia can be proud of “ice” bikers athletes on sports bikes on the ice arena.

But today I want to tell about the distant cool the city of Assen, where our Russian Olympians – bikers took the gold still in the distant 80th. If for cities to establish special prize “For the love of motorsports, then Assen – Capital of the province of Drenthe in the Netherlands could claim the most honorable of them. A bit difficult to find cities in the world, wherever and summer and winter were motorcycle world championships. And in Assen this happens every year. In the summer – the most prestigious stage in motorsports auto-racing circuit, where a hundred or more attracts thousands of spectators from many countries in Europe. In winter, the “Ice Stadium” – a cozy facility with an artificial track and grandstand seating for 20,000 – championship in motorcycle racing on ice – preliminary or final of his event. And every time – this is a joyful event in the city, which also demonstrates their hospitality and their love of motorsports.


The oldest member of motorcycle racing on ice – in the history of these competitions, it was unanimously recognized as 43 year old Swede, Per-Olof Sireniusa. When – that it was unchanged finalist and, undoubtedly, one of the strongest Western riders.

Winter speedway in general is very popular in these countries, rich stadiums with artificial ice tracks.



So, if you wanted to cool off in the current hot weather, please come to the Netherlands.

Ledogar Lukhovitsy 2009.

In continuation of previous post motorcycles on ice.

We continue the mind to cool the hot summer. Here are met in an Internet interesting term – Ledogar … oh, how it sounds. )))

In March this year in Russia in Lukhovitsy near an open area on the primacy Lukhovitsy Racing on ice speedway motorcycles. One of the rare species in our lane speedway.
Among specialists distributed another name – Ledogar. Strange, but at the same time fascinating name. The unimaginable combination of technology and passion, summer and winter, ice and fire …
http://foto.mail.ru/bk/vitinskaja/1145210192 photoreport
brief summary:
Ledogar – a winter view of classic speedway speedway. Carried out on the ice surface.Motorcycles, fuel and vehicle driving (in mole) remain the same. The only difference – in the wheel racers twists screws. Official serious competition Ledogar, at least in Russia, not carried out – this type is considered a training for spidveistov, the season for which begins only in the spring. But in entertainment, such competitions are not inferior to the classic races. Ledogar often confused with ice speedway, but these two species are fundamentally different and the technology driving, and motorcycles, and spike wheels.


Organizers based on their finances, a little help from the city, and the tremendous efforts of enthusiasts were able to hold this season, four of these stages. Dissemination of information “by word of mouth” is not allowed to collect a lot of spectators at the stadium. Although in my opinion – look it at that. Beautiful vehicle cornering with drifts, numerous overtaking, some pretty scary somersaults, and the first is not a free training session, which ended in knockout Egor Egorov – the strongest of the list of participants.

Further more, the intrigue developed …. most dramatic and unfortunate descent occurred Dmitry Biryukov on the last lap finale, with the leading, award position …. in the snow …. a surprise unsettled support the stadium …. then it seemed that the owners of the stadium, Lukhovitsy athletes can move away from the deserved cup, but Alexei Zenin, multiple medalist in the classic speedway, did not miss the chance to stand up to the main step of the podium. Second place won Lukhovitsy veteran motorsports Oleg Kireev, who could not sit at home, and the name of a long-term break, once again proved that experience and skills are and do not disappear. Third place was won in the uphill struggle of Representatives g.Vidnoe Porzaevym Anton, his teammate, Michael Chuikov for all of its races was the most “spectacular” on the track, including three consecutive fall in one and the same turn …
Unfortunately technical sports a very traumatic and unpredictable. Egor Egorov lies in Lukhovitsy in hospital with multiple fractures and internal injuries. According to the fans “he would have made it burning.” We wish him a speedy recovery and new victories.
In conclusion, I want to wish success to all participants, to express my deep appreciation for human kindness and hospitality of the owners, and to encourage people with the opportunity not to ignore such a fascinating sport.
