Top 10 Movie Motorcycles

In the world of Hollywood, you can win an Oscar for being a fantastic supporting actor or actress in a film. Motorcycles have made so many movies perfect – with classic high speed, high style scenes – that we feel there should be an Oscar category dedicated to bikes. Motorcycles aren’t bit players – they’re often steal every scene they’re in. Here are the top ten movie bikes of all time.

10. Kawasaki KZ 1000 from Mad Max

Everyone rode Kawas in Mad Max, from Main Force Patrol Officer Jim Goose down to the lowliest bad guy. Mad Max made it a classic ride. If only Goose had access to high performance parts like the ones offered by Pure Performance Motorsport – his bike might have made it through in one piece.

9. Kawasaki GPZ 900 R from Top Gun

If you grew up in the 80s, you’ve definitely seen Top Gun. If you grew up in the 90s, you’ve probably seen Top Gun. If you grew up later, you should see Top Gun. Tom Cruise became an icon thanks to this movie, as did his shades, his jet and his motorcycle.

8. Triumph Thunderbird from The Wild One

For many, this movie put classic motorcycle imagery on the map. The image of Marlon Brando as Johnny Strabler leaning over his Triumph Thunderbird remains one of the most iconic pictures of the 20th century.

7. Bike with a sidecar from Indiana Jones

All it takes to beat the Nazis is an archeologist on a bike with his father in the sidecar. This movie makes us wish that sidecars would make a comeback.

6.Triumphs from Mission Impossible

The Triumphs in Mission Impossible look super cool. Triumphs are already amazing, but they look even better when driving in slow motion through explosions or getting huge air during high speed chases. Now this is a bike that surely has some high performance parts, just like the ones you can find by visiting Pure Performance Motorsport on Facebook.

5. Fat Boy from Terminator 2: Judgment Day

What does a killer cyborg from the future need to perform his daily duties? A motorcycle, obviously! The Harley Davidson Fat Boy is a stylish, powerful ride of choice for the Terminator.

4. Lightcycle bike from Tron Legacy

These jaw-dropping machines are hidden in the world of virtual reality. Not just for transport, these bikes can also to help you vaporise enemies. It’s not just movie magic as some eager designers have replicated the designs in real life!

3. Mototerminator from Terminator: Salvation

It’s more than a tuned up motorcycle – it’s a killer machine dressed to like one. As a human, you wouldn’t want to get to close, but it’d sure be worth a look! You’d be hard pressed finding the high performance parts these guys require – even the best performance parts retailers such as Pure Performance Motorsport on Ebay might not have these futuristic parts!

2. Bat-pod from the Dark Knight

Bat-pod

Batman’s motorcycle doesn’t look like a performer – look at those thick tyres – but it has a surprising amount of grunt! This shape shifting machine is perfect for fighting crime on the streets of Gotham.

1. Harley Davidson Hydra-Glide from Easy Rider

Motorbikes aren’t a prop in Easy Rider. They are the heart and soul of this classic movie. None of the original bikes used in this movie are still around, but their iconic status remains untouched.

These are some of the greatest, most iconic movie motorcycles we could find. Do you have a star cycle that we haven’t mentioned? Let us know in the comments below!

Did you guess it right?

Some kind of an advertising campaign, right? It surely caught the attention of the public. People got curious to know what is it all about.

Kudos to the ad agency for such a brilliant idea.

Beats by Dre Goes Live

Music lovers hear this.

Beats music

We all know that music producer Jimmy Iovine and rapper/hip-hop producer Dr. Dre had collaborated in what is known today as Beats by Dr Dre – a new generation headphone which after its launched in 2008 had become a fashion accessory. One is even willing to shell out $300 to get one!

Hot!

Now. Next in line with the tandem is what else -online streaming industry! Iovine and Dr. Dre believes that if they can sell headphones like hotcakes, they can penetrate the too crowded music industry and took a share with giants like Apple’s iTunes and Google Android into music streaming via Beats by Dre.

How to Deal with Discounts

Wonder what’s in store for this year in the fashion industry. Shops are enticing customers with their end-of-season sale. Discounts are too tempting offering as much as 50% to 70% discounts on apparel and also with shoes and accessories.

Am I to shop? That is the dilemma. Especially when I found a tuxedo vest which is perfect for my son’s coat. There’s also some good ties with great designs up for sale. It’s hard to find a good buy come Prom season. However, I had to give up the chance because son could still use the old ones in his closet.

I don’t think it’s smart to buy when there are old pieces that can still be use. I personally think that it’s a waste of money buying stuff that we don’t necessarily need at the moment. We must try to remember our priorities when buying. Discounts come and go. Our money won’t.

5 Useful Power Tools for Housework

Technology has changed the face of housework. Dishwashers, washing machines, dryers and vacuum cleaners are appliances our great grandmothers probably didn’t even dream about. And housework is only going to get easier! The future holds such things as a fridge that can automatically reorder food as it is removed; washing machines that can be operated from a mobile phone and vacuum cleaners with cameras and sensors that allow it to navigate and clean your home without your help!

The days of sweating and labouring over the housework are well and truly over. There are just so many excellent tools to make housework easier and to save time. Check out STIHL Australia to find out some of the most up to date options available.

Vacuum Cleaner

Vacuum cleaners now come in all shapes, sizes and price brackets. Wet and dry vacuum cleaners are probably the most versatile available. They will clean everything from the plush carpet in your bedroom to the grunge on your garage floor. Next time someone has a spill you simply bring out the wet and dry vacuum cleaner. You can even use it to clean out your fireplace.

They have very powerful suction capacity and are as effective with liquid as they are with dust particles. The designs continue to improve and have become increasingly easy to use and move around the home.

Steam Mop

The steam mop has revolutionised mopping. It uses steam rather than chemicals to create sparkling clean surfaces, so no more chemical smells in your home. It creates incredibly clean and sterile floor surfaces for the safety and enjoyment of your family. And the cleaning power comes from the steam not from your elbow grease. The other advantage of the steam mop is that floors dry almost instantly. The heat from the steam mops acts to loosen stubborn dirt and stains so you can clean your floors quickly and easily. And there is absolutely no streaking with a steam mop as no cleaning solutions are used.

Washing Machine

Gone are the days of beating clothes against rocks or scrubbing them up against a washboard. Today’s washing machines are a technological marvel and are becoming increasingly sophisticated. What once took a whole day is now a simple matter of set and forget.

Before you purchase a new washing machine it is a good idea to do your research. There are many organisations that provide up to date reviews about washing machines and their performance. They rate things like which machine gets the cleanest clothes, rinses most thoroughly, uses the least amount of electricity and water, is the most gentle on your clothes and gives you the fastest wash time.

Dryer

Dyers are similar to washing machines. There are a plethora of styles available. Do your research and you will find which one will best suit the needs of your family.

Gerni

For verandah cleaning and also cleaning of showers, the gerni is a power tool you simply must have. It will clean surfaces better than you ever could. Get one!

Surfing At A Wifi Hotspot

The effect of power outages due to typhoon Santi. I need to clamber up the city to find a Wifi hotspot. I thought it’ll be very easy to find a cybercafe. However with the city still reeling on power failure -with power relying only on stand-by generator sets – I had to queue for a vacant seat at Gloria Jeans.

Good thing, we went to the city tagging my laptop with me -as I had thought the lone Internet shop in the city mall would be packed with people. Oh! Yeah. People lining up could be a hundred meters! True.

Gloria Jeans was the only shop that has good Wifi service. After nearly an hour of waiting outside the shop’s glass door, I was given a seat.

And, my order was tabbed. Php 280 for an Iced Coffee and a slice of Sansrival. Good thing the slice was generous and was quite delicious.

Such was the price of Internet when power is down in most parts of the town/province.

Slash Ibiza Getaway

I was looking for high school class rings to use as commemorative souvenirs for an upcoming reunion. Went visiting a couple of sites with great images of jewelries made from various metals. Had had so many inspiration. I did filed up few images to show my old classmates.

Meanwhile, while browsing my favorite online shopping network, I came upon great deals today which was overly tempting. Bags-tote and handbags- were all in the deals-row. Yay!

I wish the husband could let me use his card for just one tote :) Promise, it wouldn’t be as pricey as these two designer totes that rocker Slash is carrying. And, Oh. Don’t you think Slash is uber cute carrying all those pricey totes (one is the ever familiar Neverfull Louis Vuitton) ? I wonder where’d he put his guitar?

Careful Slash, you don’t wanna mess them or else the girls would scream like crazy and end your Ibiza vacation.
