Crushing the Record for the World’s Longest Motorcycle the American Way

By General Posts

by Cristina Mircea from https://www.autoevolution.com

The title for the longest motorcycle in the world belongs to an Indian who built one that measures 86 ft and 3 in (26.29m). Bharat Sinh Parmar holds the Guinness World Record since 2014. That didn’t sit well with the guys from Bikes and Beards, who decided to bring that record to the United States, using a vintage Japanese bike.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with it, Bikes and Beards is the YouTube channel of SRK Cycles, a bike dealer based in Pennsylvania. This isn’t their first unusual vlog, as the whole purpose of the channel is to redefine the way you use a motorcycle and push the boundaries of human creativity. In case you haven’t slept well at night wondering if you can run a motorcycle underwater for 10 minutes, do browse their channel and you’ll find out.

The common approach for others who’ve tried to build a long motorcycle has been to place the engine and the drive train on the front, then add a long swingarm and then the wheel in the back. But there’s a simpler way to do things, which is to build two square tubes at both ends of the bike and have them welded on the motorcycle. The long frame would then get connected to those tubes.

The guys’ bike, a 1980 Honda CB750 Custom motorcycle, ended up measuring 108 ft, which was a success, not to mention the fact that everything was accomplished within one week.

In order to break the record, the motorcycle had to prove it can actually handle itself on the road, taking turns and everything. Bharat Sinh Parmar had to ride his for 308 ft (93.8 m) without putting his feet down, to break the previous record. But the Bikes and Beards guys took their stretched bike for a 1,058 ft (322 m) ride, crushing the Indian’s record.

Official Music Video “Let it Go” from Jasmine Cain Launch!

By General Posts

Good Day, lovely people!

I am excited to announce that we have launched our new music video “Let it Go” in partnership with Ingrooves Music Group. The video premiered through Pure Grain Audio for 24 hours and we had a great response! But now, it belongs to us entirely and we wanted to share it with you!

This video was filmed in Largo, Florida with Thomas Crane of Kill Devil Films. I came across his videos while watching another video from a band that we share a lot of stages with and decided he was the best man for the job. He did not disappoint. Several friends came together to find us a location (for free!) and things to smash (from Goodwill for under $20) and we built this masterpiece.

Let it Go is written about a grudge being held until it destroys you from the inside, but you just can’t seem to drop it. Writers were Caleb Sherman and Monique Staffile from the band HER and Kevin Bebout and myself. We recorded at Sound Emporium with Mills Logan.

We want to hear from you! Did you love it? Hate it? Wanna show us some love? Please make sure and comment on the YouTube video. That’s how we get bumped to the trending videos. Thank you so much for all you do for us. We love you all! Now, go watch this video!

Katy Perry goes tropical in latest video, ‘Harleys in Hawaii’

By General Posts

By Adam Wallis from https://globalnews.ca

Katy Perry has released a new single called Harleys in Hawaii.

The three minute, 15 second track was released on Wednesday along with a scenic, colourful and saucy music video directed by Manson.

The bass-heavy pop tune, which is driven by a subtle acoustic guitar melody, serves as the 34-year-old’s fourth single in 2019 overall.

During an interview on the Zach Sang Show in July, Perry revealed that the inspiration for the song came from a trip to Hawaii with her fiancée, Orlando Bloom, where the couple rented and rode Harley Davidson motorcycles together in the tropical American state.

She said: “I can remember specifically where I was, the street corner I was at (in Oahu), and turning that corner and whispering to Orlando, going “I’m going to write a song called Harleys in Hawaii… and I did.”

Much like her last single, Small Talk — which dropped in early August — Harleys in Hawaii was produced by Charlie Puth and Johan Carlsson.

The pair co-wrote the song alongside Perry and Jacob Kasher, who is another frequent collaborator of the Teenage Dream singer.

Though Perry has released four singles this year, including Never Really Over and 365, it’s unclear if she’s working on a follow-up to her critically acclaimed 2017 album, Witness.

During her chat with host Zach Sang over the summer, the pop star said, “I haven’t really committed to calling anything an album or making an album.”

Perry didn’t rule out the possibility of a new album, however. “If there’s demand for a full body of work, then we’ll see,” she added.

Though she teased a potential album, the pop star admitted she was enjoying releasing singles as their own entities. “I’ve never been able to just put out songs one after the other,” she said.

The Roar singer continued: “Everyone’s like, ‘Oh people don’t put out full records anymore, they just put out songs, what a shame.’ I don’t know if it’s a shame actually, because every song gets it’s own little moment.”

“They get the spotlight, they get a visual,” she added. “Every song, at least to an artist, is somewhat important,” adding that she’s not upset at the people who disagree with her.

Harleys in Hawaii is now available through all major streaming platforms.

A near fatal accident didn’t stop Natalie from getting back on the open road.

When she was young, Natalie yearned to one day have her own motorcycle. She made her dream a reality when she purchased her own Yamaha, and could finally experience the thrill of riding solo and getting involved in the local motorcycle community.

Things took a turn for the worse and she was involved in a near fatal accident that left her dreams – and bones – broken. Natalie was told that she wouldn’t be able to walk for up to a year. Five surgeries, organs removed, and one titanium pelvis later, Natalie’s passion for riding drove her to get back up again. Three months after her accident, she was back on wheels– and not the wheelchair kind.

One of the things that helped Natalie stay positive throughout her traumatic ordeal was the Tonit community that would be there to welcome her return to the road.

For motorcyclists riding in groups or flying solo, no resource offers a more authentic way to connect with other passionate riders than the Tonit app.

Christophe Barriere-Varju started racing motocross at the age of 14 and lifelong motocross racer, he has competed in the Dakar Rally 4 times, twice in Africa and twice in South America. His last Dakar Rally race has been captured in 10x Award Winning Film, Dream Racer — the timeless story true to all of us, one’s pursuit of lifelong dreams, whatever those dreams might be.

Lawrence and Christophe were interviewed by Toronto Motorcycle Film Festival Director, Caius Tenche in a fascinating 55-min video interview.

This interview is for all of you wondering what it takes, and what it feels like — to race the almighty Dakar Rally, and how this event can alter the course of one person’s life.

Sit back, and enjoy great life insights and personal stories from these two racers whose lives changed course after racing the world’s toughest motorsport race, the Dakar Rally as privateers.

An Interview with Lawrence Hacking, Dakar Rally Racer

https://news.dreamracer.tv/motorsport/dakar-rally/an-interview-with-lawrence-hacking-dakar-rally-racer/

Interview excerpt:

DR. How did it feel racing that last stage on Lac Rose and crossing the same podium as these legends?

LH. That day was a highlight of my life, it was January 21, 2001, we rode from the hotel on a liaison to the beach where the special stage started. Hubert Auriol made an emotional speech, we the riders talked while we waited. That moment was what I worked an entire year for and crossing over the podium was pure euphoria. That feeling is so addictive and so difficult to achieve that the quest to relive that feeling is life changing. You start dreaming about ways to recapture that feeling and it is nearly impossible. It is almost dangerous.

DR. Ok, time to reflect now…what would you tell or recommend to anyone wanting to race the almighty race?

Many think in their own mind they have what it takes but soon find out they don’t. It is a hard pill to swallow. In the Dakar there is no hiding in the shadows, everyone in the World is watching how you perform under the most difficult conditions, you have to be prepared to accept whatever happens. One of the most important things to remember is that it is far less difficult to live with 2 or 3 weeks of extreme hardship than a lifetime of disappointment.

Some of the most inspirational films are available on Dream Racer TV.

Our films serve a purpose that go beyond entertainment — they are truly inspirational, show ordinary people can achieve extraordinary feats – and inspire others to achieve their own dreams and life aspirations.
