For those of you in the Washington DC metro  area the Timonium Motorcycle Show is an annual mid-winter event.  With most motorcycle manufactures represented and lots of motorcycle vendors and travel crews Timonium has been one of my favorites.

However there has been some rumbling about the 2019 show when the long time organizer for the event dropped out. But, fear not the event is still on as Jam On Productions jumped in to setup and run the show.  From all appearances the 2019 show will occur and look a lot like the previous years events.

So if you were concerned (or even knew about) the show for 2019 now you know.  I will be there walking around with the wife.  Just hope that it is above freezing while we are in line to get in LOL.

The Grandsons out on the motorcycles

Well I wrote to soon on my year round motorcycle riding accomplishment. In 2014 I was able to ride in every month of the year. Wellllllll 2015 is already finished for this effort.

While there were a few days that were “reasonable” as far a riding here in Northern Virginia I had other priorities on those days and did not get out on two wheels. For example on January the first I could have rode in a “Polar Bear” ride with the NOVA MC but elected to spend it with my grandsons watching them learn to ride their new mini-bikes. It’s all about the priorities.

 

Well this is one way to become an artist on your motorcycle!

 

There are a lot of electric motorcycle concept vehicles out there.  Most are by companies you have never heard of and, probably (as soon as the Federal “seed” money is gone) never will. But this one is different.

Husqvarna has been around for a long time and will be around for a long time more. They introduced the “E-Go Concept” bike a while back but I just ran across the bike and thought I would share.  Additionally, it looks like they have some form of partnership with BMW Motorcycles on this effort.

It is one of the few electric “dirt bike” concepts and it is really different.  The first thing I noticed was that the front suspension is on right side of bike and the rear is on the left.  Not sure how that would work in real life for it is interesting.

You can find out more on the bike at BMW Motorcycle Magazine and at TopSpeed.com.
