Biking Out OF Recession

So, they asked why we have been quiet and what happened to biker’s movement. Well we are still in the block just being lazy…… or we chasing money. Not really but we all know that the country became unlivable with the change in the economy and the shock of not being able to buy a new bike……
Now a group of bikers came together to organize an event called BIKING OUT OF RECESSION
so we all have to pause and have some fun. 

Theme: "Biking Outta Recession" was uniquely carved out to encourage, enjoin and elevate an average Nigerian especially in this trying times.

China did it
Vietnam did it.
Korea did it

Ghana survived during the much fantasized Ghana must go era. It is indeed a great way to retake our economy out of reccession.
                                         "Biking outta recession" was considered as word of hope to Nigerians to be more determined and diversified, looking inward towards the developent of new innovation and invention.

Biking Out Of Recession.....

Christmas day escapade (bikers festival)

From the admin and the whole biker’s movement team, we wish you all a very happy new year.  We surly had a wonderful short holiday and I must tell you, it was fun filled to and fro the last most exciting biking event in Nigeria where you are sure of 1600km + ride to and fro the venue.

Take off point, Abraham Adesanya (Total fuel station) Ajah via Epe-Ijeb. Fantastic route which I call test of fate (by 5:30am), nice curves, fairly deep pot holes for fun, busy road, everyone is make a last minute Christmas journey. Normally I spend my Christmas taking this 1600km + ride from Lagos to Calabar  and back to see my family and old friends but these past two Christmas gave me more reason to seal the curse for happiness.

Riders :

Luchio on a 2016 R1200GS
Zen on a Ducati diavel
Papi Jay on a Ducati diavel
Nze G on a 2008 R1200GS
Abu on an R1
Jay on a KTM 990 adventure

Take off time was respected (no Nigerian time) so we rode, me smiling in my helmet wishing all the riders a safe ride to our 1st stop (Nipco, ijebu ode)  to fuel and continue to Ore – Benin-Warri- Ugheli-Patani- Port Harcourt then we got to another amusement, curvy country side twisties which always amazes me, Atte-Abak-Uyo. What a fantastic road to ride on then we arrived Calabar (Tinapa) with great reception from Aisha of Metallic Knight MC (the host of the event).

We checked into our rooms early on our arrival, warm bath to cool down the left over adrenaline still yearning for more ride, buffet as usual ready to receive scooping. With no time wasting we ended the evening with a nice meal and slept well to wait on bikers coming from all over.

In my deep afternoon sleep, sounds of high revved motorcycle to announce their entrance, a happy celebration of a successful ride is necessary. Bikers trooped in by the hour with the above norm all through that day and most definitely repeated the “warm bath to cool down the left over adrenaline still yearning for more rides”.  A special arrangement was made by the organizers to massage our stiff backs from the ride (a plus), then came the night party (adult upgrade XXX) which kept bikers up most of the night then a good night rest followed, curtsy the nice customer relation from Tinapa resort and the Metallic Knight MC.

The D-day was too quick to shine its morning light on our sleepy head, 50% anxious bikers quickly got up to share pleasantries with other riders from different parts of the country which lasted for some time till it was time to roll out for the bikers festival ride around the town which equally went well  .

The event ended well with another party and a night ride for some bikers looking for more fun out of Calabar while others riding back home had to rest. We (my team) hoping to stay back for the Calabar carnival, stayed back to see what new stuff the 2015 carnival had for the crowded spectators. Then it came and gone so we got back to the hotel to prepare for a 800 km+ ride back to Lagos.

Note: Christmas day ride is super fun, free roads, dry weather condition but make sure your bike is on point because any breakdown can leave you helpless  or your bike will be trucked to destination.

12 Biking Wishes For Christmas 2016

This will be my last chance to get a column in place before the holidays, so here are my 12 Biking Wishes that I’d like Santa to bring/give for 2016:

Wish 1: A tip for all bikers: if you go over a big bump and lift out of the saddle, try not to land on the tank with your right testicle under you!!!!

Wish 2: To the police officer who pulled me over for speeding. All best wishes for Christmas and the New Year. You dealt with the situation sensibly and kindly. It would have been all too easy to be a real jobsworth, but you applied common sense.

Wish 3: To the two officers who pulled me over “For a chat about road safety”. Officer 1; Again, well done. You were sensible, gave good advice. But really, have a word with your colleague!
Officer 2: Learn subtlety. If you’re running a number plate check whilst your colleague talks to me and you’re not sure of the make of bike, then ask him to come over to you for a moment, don’t come wandering over, asking loudly of him “Is that a Suzuki?”!

Wish 4 (well 3.5): I really don’t mind random number plate checks! This helps find cloned plates and/or stolen motorcycles. But then I suppose not everyone would take it so well. But I do object to being pulled over by the police, because someone wants to perform a transport survey! Strikes me as a waste of their time.

Wish 5 (and the last police one, I promise): To the plain-clothes officer who cut me up, then , when I moved over to the bus lane I am legally entitled to ride in, moved over there as well, put on his lights and sirens (right on my tail). I didn’t stop as I knew I’d done nothing wrong. But everyone did what they’re supposed to do; get out of his way. As soon as he was ahead of the queue, he switched off the bells and whistles and continued on his way, with no urgency.
To you, I leave this thought; Ignorance of the law is no excuse. Ignorance FROM the law is inexcusable.

Wish 6: That this blasted recession may ease and life gets a little easier for the good dealers. It isn’t just the bad ones that are struggling, they all need some help.

Wish 7: To the buffoon who hit his horn in annoyance at me for riding at 25mph in a 30mph zone, in weather so bad I could barely see through my visor: Get a life, or at least let me keep mine.

Wish 8: To the clearly unstable person who insisted walking along the white lines in the middle of the road recently: Please get some help, it isn’t just you who is going to get hurt acting like that.

Wish 9: To the European Community; Biking is in real trouble. Back off with the punitive legislation for a while and give the industry a chance to save itself. The restrictions you are imposing can and will see businesses go under. Is this really what you want in these difficult times?

Wish 10: Get out there and ride your bikes in the New Year! There are estimates as low as 3,500 miles a year being the average! Enjoy your bikes, go ride a range of roads and see new things. Motorcycles aren’t toys, they’re good, viable transport and should be enjoyed as much as possible.

Wish 11: To all non-bikers. Please realise that motorcyclists are vulnerable. Keep an eye open for them. We’re all entitled to use the roads, so lets all use them together sensibly.

Wish 12: A non-biking one. May everyone be fit, well and prosperous in the New Year.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from everyone at copy from

Chicken Strips. What’s The Deal?

You’ve probably heard of chicken strips, or maybe you haven’t. Chicken strips is a term used in the motorcycle world for the edge of the motorcycle tires.

Each tire when it rolls out of the manufacturing plant has small strips on the side. These strips, depending on the tire type, are the small little cones that stick out of a tire, which can be found on the edge (like in the photo above). Normally speaking, these strips get worn off when you ride, particularly when you use the bike a lot in curves while maintaining a high lean angle. The more you put your knee closer to the road, the less chicken strips will be visible.

For other types of tires, particularly sportstires (like the photo above), the chicken strip is the edge of the tire that has not been used, and is therefore still raw.

For many clubs and discussion forums, chicken strips therefore indicate whether you are afraid to take curves aggressively. The less chicken strips you have, the more you are willing to attack a curve.

With many bikers it has become a thing of honor; no chicken strips. So much so that they have started using sandpaper to remove the strips, in other words……. cheating.

Obviously it’s a question of how far you are comfortable in putting your knee down. Never try to outdo your own capability, no matter how many chicken strips you have left on your tires.
