THE ULTIMATE BIKER GIRL....


You have probably not been hinted about the ULTIMATE BIKER GIRL.

The UBGN is the evening highlight of The Bikers Trophy (The BT) Super-bike Nigeria Race event held annually on the last Saturday of November in Edo State, Nigeria.

It is a celebration of the beauty of the African woman’s body from the perspective of super-bike racers and fans of super-bikes & amp; Motorsport generally.

It also celebrates the love, support & enthusiasm women have for our sport.

We pump RED at the BT & Pink at the UBG!!!

THE MOTOGP SEPANG CLASH; The Warm Up

I actually thought that I was going to wait until after the #MotoGP Race in November to get back in here to take you inside the happenings of the most spectacular Motorcycle show spot in our terrestrial ball. Little knew I that that was just one thought that will never get the breath of actuality and a dream that only lasted for the night.



The Shell Malaysian Grand Prix held each year since April1999 at the Sepang International Circuit (SIC) has always been a sacred Venue in the MotoGP calendar. 23rd October, 2011 Marco Simoncelli #58 (SuperSic) crashed and died few hours later having collided with Colin Edwards and Valentino Rossi. This makes the Sepang Circuit a sacred place as the memory of the young Italian rider is always rekindled here every year in the racing weekends.


In that line of thought and believe, my mind had saddled to watch Valentino Rossi who was best friend with the late Simoncelli to tributize his fallen compatriot in his unique ways, a feat The Doctor is excellent in. Like every other thought, it was just a thought. Like every other dream, this was just a dream never meant to be fulfilled rather leave medulla faculty in an active yet illusive state.
(Insert 3rd Image)25th October 2015 at Sepang International Circuit the red lights went out and the 24 best motorcycle riders in the world led by Dani Pedrosa blast off the line as a well locked ballistic missile intended to annihilate its target. World Championship leader Valentino Rossi had a better start off his rival and team mate Jorge Lorenzo and looked ready to battle for the win to further extend his championship lead from Lorenzo. Lorenzo's story in the first few turns was that he found himself behind the over powerful Ducati Desmosedici GP15s of Andrea Dovizioso and Andrea Iannone. The Yamaha boy knew he had to find a way to escape on his M1 to keep his title hopes alive until the final race in Valencia.



What a moment! What I'm I doing? Egba mi o, Like my Yoruba colleague often exclaims. I do not even know what it means but I know this ain't the time for translation as this is not Language digest. Either ways, I am also really not supposed to generate and play a visual picture in your head with my scripted account of the MalaysianGrand Prix race as that is not what dragged me from BikeGP.wordpress.com to Bikersmovement.com. More unfortunate for GP results head is that the race was neither reported on the former media as a result of the MotoGP #SepangClash between Valentino Rossi and Marc Marquez



Not until last Sunday, I have never watched neither a Motorcycle race nor any other film or movie that was that long. The new MotoGP Documentary film "HITTING THE APEX" by Mark Neale and Brad Pitt is over 2hours 40minutes playtime long yet still it's nothing compared to the 2015 MotoGP Shell Malaysian Grand Prix at the Sepang International Circuit. I have watched the Hobbit trilogy in a sitting and if you towed that same line and also watched last Sunday MotoGP race then you will agree totally with me that it's long yet all that combined isn't as long as the MotoGP Malaysian Grand Prix which was concluded last Sunday and is still playing and will continually play in the minds of MotoGP fanatics. A MotoGP Race lasts just 45 minutes, believe me folks, this was not the case on Sunday when Valentino Rossi ran wide to cause Marc Marquez to crash off his Honda RC213V and the Malaysian Grand Prix responding to the young chap's conspiracy theory to rub the 9 times World Champion of his 10th World Championship title.



If you tag last Sunday's race as 'MotoGP, The Extended Version' you will be damn right, pal. I tell you.. This is just "The WARM UP" practice trying to find a way to give you the real report as it's supposed to, thus, stay tuned for The MotoGP SepangClash Series featuring World Famous Valentino Rossi and Wannabe Marc Marquez.. The next episode is titled "THE MOTOGP SEPANG CLASH; Verbal Attacks"

20/10/2015 7:27 PM - Moto BT- 88: What we have set out to do with The BT is to, within the peculiarities of our environment, jump start motorsport as an activity that we also can engage in....We do not believe that it is a space alien sport

20/10/2015 7:28 PM - Moto BT- 88: But unless you start something, you have no chance of improving it....We have started it. It has improved year on year & we expect this year's event to be an improvement on last year's. In terms of organisation and attendance while maintaining our safety record. That is our humble expectation.

Jay: Greetings boss. I know you have said a lot about the GATHERING. But what are ur expectations

Kanu: What do you mean?

Jay: What do you expect to see or experience in the gathering

Kanu: My expectations are not important boss... I am only doing the bidding of the people I represent.

Kanu: What do you think we should be expecting?

Jay: Not "we" I am talking about you. I have been asking lots of bikes.   It's a normal hype b4 an event.

Jay: What are ur expectations for the event.   To promote the awareness of a program or event you ask guys  what their expectations are.

Kanu: Ahhhhh... OK.

Kanu: Well I expect that we will get to actually RIDE in Brotherhood. I also expect that we can look at the things that we have in common and not our differences as we come together to have clean and wholesome fun. I expect responsible, upright and strong men and women who ride to join in and support what we are doing.... For our collective good.
Thanks

SCAN PRESS RELEASE

The Superbike Clubs Association of Nigeria Set To Organize First Nationwide Riding Event In Nigerian History

The Superbike Clubs Association of Nigeria (SCAN) is organizing a first-of-it’s-kind riding event tagged The Road Roar (RR).

The RR is a road tour which will span five days, with riders taking off from the north, and others joining along designated routes, as they proceed to Lagos.

Looking to be the largest group ride ever witnessed, the RR will start off on the 16th of November and end on the 20th of November 2015.

The RR provides a unique platform to experience adventure, tourism, and culture as the participants ride through different cities in Nigeria in an uncommon show of brotherhood and patriotism upholding SCAN’s codes of safety, honor and integrity.

The RR is not an exclusive event, and is open to everyone irrespective of affiliations, or nationalities.

“This is not about bikers alone, it’s about Nigerians. It’s about our future, it’s about the freedom to do what you love. It’s about brotherhood. We foresee in the near future that even car owners would be able to participate in the Road Roar,” said renowned super biker and SCAN BoT member, Ogbonnaya Kanu.

Participants who complete the event will receive a certificate of completion from SCAN in recognition of their efforts and accomplishments.

Interested participants may sign up for the RR at www.superbikecan.com.

OGO Tells Her BIN Convention Ride Experience

My name is Ogochukwu Abuah 

The BIN Convention was my first out-of-Lagos ride. It was both tasking physically and mentally. There was a tiny part of me that was not sure if I could make it - I get tired easily. I hadn't been exercising and doubted my ability to endure. I knew the adrenaline in me would keep me going -  but how far, I was not entirely sure. Friends who knew about the ride had pleaded with me not to go through with it as they were not sure I had the stamina and were genuinely concerned. They really could not get the need to ride all the way when  there was no award or money concerned. Haha! Some even told me not to be ashamed to truck my bike if I got tired. Biodun warned me over and over again that "no one will go back to Asaba or Benin to get my bike o", yimu!!!. One thing was certain, I was not going as a pillion or in a mugu way, no way! Messages were sent in from people who had plied the Lagos-Asaba road recently and I made sure to digest it all.

Three nights to the ride, I could not sleep and it only got worse. What was happening to me? I needed my sleep and I could not get it. On Wednesday, I made sure I did not stress myself as I was setting out on Thursday. Made sure my bike was good to go, stayed away from my phone as much as possible, tried to sleep during the day (such pretense), and forced myself to eat. I needed to be in the best form. The moment came and we were ready to roll. I rode with one person (Biodun) so as not to slow the GFMC crew down, also, group riding is not something I am quite used to just yet. The smaller the number the better. Bearing in mind that road users on the highway are on a different level, we set out at 6:10am. I had my frozen drinks in my bag and I was good to go. It was at that moment I remembered and sang all the gospel songs I knew in my head.

The ride to Ijebu-Ode via Epe road seemed unending and I was getting tired because I was in pain. My helmet never felt so tight and my head was on fire. Like that wasn't enough, for some reason, I realized how loud my bike was, damn! My ears couldn't take it and in my head I kept saying "who sent me"? Getting to Ijebu-Ode was such a relief. We met some bikers at the petrol station and I wondered how they got there so fast. (mumu wondering). I had a sip of my "heavenly" drink and I felt refreshed. No pain from  my helmet and my ears were fine, whew. There was traffic from Ijebu-Ode to Ore at intervals and in some twisted way, I liked it - no cars competing with me on that bad road, whoop! However, I have to give it to the truck drivers, they were exceptionally nice. They gave me room to maneuver, what joy! These people are not so mean after all... There was this Hearse transporting a casket that decided to chase us and I was a bit concerned.Someone joked that the driver had sold the cadaver that was meant to be in it, thus, needed a replacement. Thank God it wasn't any of us.

Next stop was Ore. We filled up our tanks, hydrated and moved on. It was smooth sailing from there. I opened up and made sure not to get carried away. By that time my palm had started to ache, blisters had formed, sigh. Got to Benin and stopped just before the bypass where some ERMC guys were chilling ( same ERMC guys had sped past us and I asked myself when I'd reach that level of expertise). Not knowing how to connect Agbor road via the bypass, Biodun and I contemplated waiting for the GFMC crew or roll with the ERMC guys. Luckily for us, Reginald Nwosu (Reggie) decided to ride with us as he knew the way. I was glad we didn't have to wait cause I didn't want fatigue setting in.

Last stop was on the outskirts of Asaba. David Brown bought biscuit for us to share and the guys pretty much cheered  me on. Finally we got to Asaba. Got to the hotel thanks to Dr Prescott where we met the early birds. After which it was meet and greet all the way.

The following day (Friday) was the ride to Abraka. Biodun had advised me against riding as I needed all the energy for the ride back. Thank God I did not as the rain that day was something else.

On the return ride to Lagos, I was much more confident and aware of my immediate surroundings so the ride was  not as demanding as the first leg of the trip. I rode with Chris, Biodun and Reggie(from the Benin By Pass). Jay met us on the Epe exit from the Ijebu Ode express and covered my rear all through to Ajah. I know how difficult it must be to ride slower than your average speed and for this I am eternally grateful to these guys. I experienced first hand the love bikers talk about all the time. This is to many more rides.

A big shout out to all the bikers that taught me, rode with me,supported me. Special mention to Chris, Reggie, Jay.

We have many bikers who have said they will come up north as far beyond Abuja and ride all through the beautiful cascade of the landscape of NIGERIA to Lagos while others will join up in a designated routes that we will publish close to the opening of the tour.

Hey calm down The Gathering is close

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!! To Ride Easy Motorcycle club, Lagos Nigeria

Imagine a situation where you start looking for a word to describe the type of fun you get from an event. It was a four (4) hour event but looked like 30min because we wanted it to last forever, such a wonderful moment with the Ride Easy Motorcycle club guys and definitely Girls (sexy; I saw).

A pool with lot of bikini owners hovering around with bikers looking lost, testing their focusing skills, lots of Orijin, Star, and Hennessey waiting for the mugu bikers to consume while we who rode concentrated on the menu which included roasted fish, chicken and some ram-looking meat (not a chicken or meat eater so I passed) chips by the side.  









Aikay and the boys dove into the female infested pool giving in to the temptation from the sexy bikini owners who danced away to the sound of the loud music. Short clip below can give you a feel:


With the right crowd the fun was to the fullest and again we talked about our ride from Asaba (convention) being that we had not seen since the ride. Hoping for what to expect from the Lagos gathering (SCAN). We are bikers and we always look forward to ways of having fun (life’s too short)


REMC is still young and growing in their two years of existence and from the Bikers Movement’s point of view it looks very strongly healthy. More grace to the forces behind the organization.

The BIN Convention (ASABA) Day 3

Waking up from Day 2 was hard; still trying to understand the cold, the strange rain and the fact that my guys planned to ride to Nnewi (Anambra state) to work on their rims. Hey!! Day 3 is the main day of the convention. Slow riding challenge, sales of motorcycle accessories and apparels, lunch/dinner, AGM and election. Bikers In Nigeria (BIN) just making a new start did not really have time to prepare for this event I guess. But we all had fun to the fullest.

First it kicked off with the slow ride challenge between representatives from all interested motorcycle clubs and organizations.  Now I will not go into details to bore you with the failures and disqualification but to the main competitors; Nam Gigi, Osa, Jay and Argo Raak.

It’s a Test of Balance and Control

Never seen Argo do the slow ride but definitely scared of Nam and The king. It was my 1st time attempting the challenge. See pictures and results below then you can make your conclusions


Jay- Representing bikersmovement and 514 Ryders finished in   1min 20 sec
Nam Gigi- Representing Hard Ryders MC finished in                           1min 15 sec
Osa- Representing Hard Ryders MC finished in                                     1min 12 sec
Argo Raak –Representing A41 MC finished in                                      1min

The longest time wins the challenge and a winner was presented, still awaiting the trophy

Then the girls stepped in for the motorcycle wash (wet bath sounds better) and totally got all bikers engaged with 100% Focus and concentration with their sexy looking moves and dance steps. Then K switch comes in to do what he does best (sing), stealing the female bikes heart (police standing by).


It was surely a wow event.


Now guys getting hungry, its lunch time. Well fed bikers listened to the BIN executives introduce The Bikers In Nigeria housed by AOS (please don’t ask me what it means). The hall was excused by non members for the Election which was peacefully held, presided by Bros B. See below for inaugural and new executives
