BMW 1200R Custom Motorcycle by Lazareth

Posted in : Vehicles

(added few years ago!)

In search of a “neo-retro scrambler,” a France based motorcycle enthusiast hired Ludovic Lazareth and his team to customize this beautiful BMW 1200R. The end result is a fusion between Scrambler and cafe racer – a truly unique offering. The bike has been completely revamped, and only the stock Paralever rear suspension and engine remain untouched. The French based customizers installed a brand new tubular chassis, front suspension from a Yamaha YZF-R6 sportbike, and to fit those meaty Continental Twinduro tires on there, the team also had to widen the 2 wheeler.  The bike’s aesthetics have remained subtle and minimalistic, yet aggressive at the same time.

(added few years ago!)

After recently putting together a list of our favorite Sriracha recipes, one of our readers (who obviously shares the same obsession for the rooster sauce) submitted this awesome Sriracha Lip Balm. Now you can literally take this hot sauce everywhere you go, and the mouth watering taste will be just a lip lick away. The lip balm was created as a collaboration project between the team at The Oatmeal and J&D’s (yes the guys who have created a ton of amazing bacon infused items). The SPF 15 lip balm will help keep your lips moisturized and safe from the sun’s harmful rays. Purchase your  3 pack from The Oatmeal.

2013 Hyundai Veloster Zombie Survival Machine

Posted in : Vehicles

(added few years ago!)

When Hyundai introduced their zombie apocalypse vehicle at last year’s Comic Con, we thought there was no way they could outdo themselves. We were dead wrong. At this year’s San Diego Comic Con, the car maker has teamed up with Robert Kirkman (creator and writer of The Walking Dead) to unveil the 2013 Hyundai Veloster Zombie Survival Machine.Taking a stock Veloster, Hyundai got some help from the team at Galpin Auto Sports to help build out a vehicle that is truly ready for the end of the world. The vehicle has been equipped with everything from a roof mounted machine gun to a bumper with dual chainsaws for mowing down the undead. Of course there is also plenty of armor found throughout the vehicle as well including the thick metal plating and window bars to keep the walkers out. Unfortunately we don’t think this thing will ever hit the production line, but that doesn’t make it any less awesome.

Game of Thrones 40 Foot Dragon Skull in England

Posted in : Culture and Arts

(added few years ago!)

Game of Thrones is our favorite show on television. Even though we have to wait another 8 months for the season 4 premiere, there is enough awesomeness inspired by the show circulating through the interwebs to keep us occupied.Take this massive dragon skull for example. This 40 foot, hand-made sculpture was created by the team at UK based Blinkbox to celebrate the availability of Game of Thrones season 3 on their streaming service. This mind blowing sculpture looks as though it washed right onto Charmouth Beach in Dorset, England, and took a crew of 3 two months to build. [Via]

Rethinking your standard riding lawn mower, the folks at Honda have introduced their aptly Mean Mower. This lawn mower has been crowned the fastest in the world, with a top speed of 130 miles per hour.
Teaming up with Team Dynamics, the folks at Honda have revamped their HF2620 Lawn Tractor, adding a chromoly chassis alongside ATV wheels, custom suspension, and a brand new power plant.

Nike Free Flyknit

Posted in : Fashion, Shoes

(added few years ago!)

Nike’s Free technology is easily the brand’s most comfortable in recent memory, possibly of all time. The brand’s introduction of Flyknit was well received among sneaker enthusiasts and athletes alike, so we figured it was only a matter of time before the Swoosh merged the two technologies. That time is now.
Earlier this week the brand unveiled their Nike Free Flyknit at their Beaverton, Oregon headquarters. These performance shoes feature an ultra comfortable Free+ 5.0 midsole mated to an ultra lightweight Flyknit upper. With a sock like fitting around the ankle, you can expect these to fit like a glove. The shoes will be released on August 1st of this year, but the Swoosh has already made pre-orders available through the Nike online store.
