As my previous post, this might not be interesting to everyone, but here goes… I recently passed and received my motorcycle license! :D
I’ve been wanting to get my motorcycle license for a very long time, but when I lived with my parents they always told me: “If you get piercings, tattoos, or motorcycles, you’ll get kicked out!” – this kind of stuck with me, but now I finally got it!
After getting my license I was determined to get a motorcycle imidiately in order to get more experience riding and to have a building project.
I looked at a lot of different bikes – both newer and older bikes, but through a Facebook-group I found a rather good deal; a Honda CB 650 from 1981 (or probably more likely 1979).
The bike is not in mint condition but that quite okay – As I mentioned, I wanted a building project.
My plan is to separate the project into different steps in order to gradually learn more about motorcycles – Currently I know nothing! :D
Here is the current plan:
Replace bent front brake lever
New switches on the handlebar
New clutch lever and perch
New front master brake cylinder
Rebuild bike frame
Frame paint job
New tail light
New licens plate light
New turn signals
Fuel tank paint job
Rims paint job
I might change this plan continuously, but this weekend I’m planning to complete “Step 1”.
Please let me know if you got any good names for my bike or any tips/tricks for my project.
Because I’ve never had a road bike before, I never realized the importance of having “extra gear” – This also explains why I only have pedals with toe clips, no bottle cages, no helmet, no bicycle clothes, and no bicycle computer. This setup has been sufficient for the first two weeks of owning a road bike, however when going on longer rides, I’m starting to miss having bicycle shorts…
Until now, I’ve ridden with my Nexus 5 in my pocket and tracked my rides with Strava, but I’m planning to get a bicycle computer soon – possibly a Garmin Edge. Any recommendations would be much appreciated! :)
Below I’ve included one of my most recent rides (actually it’s split into two separate rides) – I know it’s not the fastest rides, but bear with me:
Recently I made a radical decision to go form iOS to Android; from iPhone 4S to LG Nexus 5, to be more specific.
For those of you who don’t know me, I got my first iPhone (iPhone 3g) in 2008, and I have been an avid Apple users and advocate ever since. This also explains why a bunch of my friend after my purchase of the Nexus 5 were like: “What the heck happened?!”
I’m still really happy with my various Apple products, but I am also extremely happy with the purchase of my first Android phone.
I always thought it would be a bit difficult to go from iOS to Android, but after having used my new Nexus 5 for a couple of weeks, it is somewhat the other way around when I have to use my iPad or my old iPhone.
Google and LG did a really great job with this phone, and the experience using it, is best described with words like: fast, clean and efficient – No lagging and no delays.
One really great thing about the Nexus 5 is the display which is particularly impressive – It is a 5″display with the resolution: 1080 x 1920 pixels. This results in a pixel density of 441 ppi (the iPhone 5s is 326 ppi). For those of you who don’t speak “nerd”: This is a really crisp and sharp display!
The phone is currently only available in black and white, but a red version has been available earlier. There has been rumours about a yellow version too, but it hasn’t been released yet.
Please let me know if you got any questions about the phone, and stay tuned for tips and tricks for Nexus 5 and Android in general.
Its the time of the year where, for my part, I have to prepare a wish list for both my birthday in the beginning of December and Christmas – which I actually kinda like doing.
Most of my family live in the other end of the country, and we don’t see each other as much as we all would like us to, which sometimes can make it hard to find presents for each other. Therefore I each year make my wish list early.
It is no surprise that summer is over in Denmark – and I already miss it!
The following is a playlist called Sommeren 2013 (Danish for: The summer of 2013) that I’ve collaboratively created with a bunch of friends. The playlist perfectly reflects the mood during the summer of 2013 – What an awesome summer!
