Vancouver BC shop called Motomethod

The Motomethod Story from Zenga Bros on Vimeo.
Motomethod Community Motorcycle Repair Shop in Vancouver, BC is a full repair shop, for nearly all makes and models of motorcycles, old or new. Motomethod is the first in the industry to allow the rider to come in and ‘rent a bay’ and repair their own bike, or learn how.
Directed by the Zenga Bros.

Now not everyone has a shop or access to one let alone the tools. I have seen shops like this in France, the UK and variations on it around. Good on them for putting this shop together I hope it is here to stay!

Not Bike related but it will affect the industry

PROTECT IP / SOPA Breaks The Internet from Fight for the Future on Vimeo.

Tell Congress not to censor the internet NOW! -

PROTECT-IP is a bill that has been introduced in the Senate and the House and is moving quickly through Congress. It gives the government and corporations the ability to censor the net, in the name of protecting "creativity". The law would let the government or corporations censor entire sites-- they just have to convince a judge that the site is "dedicated to copyright infringement."

The government has already wrongly shut down sites without any recourse to the site owner. Under this bill, sharing a video with anything copyrighted in it, or what sites like Youtube and Twitter do, would be considered illegal behavior according to this bill.

According to the Congressional Budget Office, this bill would cost us $47 million tax dollars a year — that's for a fix that won't work, disrupts the internet, stifles innovation, shuts out diverse voices, and censors the internet. This bill is bad for creativity and does not protect your rights.

Custom Cushman Motorcycle in Dec 2011 Canadian Biker

This bike is impressive to say the least. Joe the guy who built it is a master builder. Where most of us build a bike around a motor or a frame, Joe seems to build a bike around a bolt or an idea that comes to him at some point or another. I have visited Joe's shop and its simply amazing. Here is a few photos from Duncan motorsports bike build off that Joe took first place in with his Cushman ASV. This isn't Joe's first time in Canadian Biker, in 1993 Joe built the "white widow". Long before occ conceived the idea of a spider bike have a look here. Here are some of the other inventive rides Joe has come up with.
