Meeting with Louis Garneau


I have been working on a new concept for cycling shorts that will drastically improve comfort for men. Today I have a meeting with Louis Garneau. I am hoping that even know there is a lot of engineering to still be done they will like my concept. I with I could share the videos and pics with you guys but I Gotto keep it on the DL.


Ford Focus


Just saw a commercial for the Ford focus and they were saying that She (the car) listened to them.  Let me tell you if your car was a “her” it wouldn’t do shit that you said!


Skiing Amped


Check out the newest gadget for skiing.  Heads up display in you goggles.


Running Gear


So I went for a run yesterday and my bluetooth headphones were in the car so I just grabbed the good old stock iPhone headphones.  BOO!  Here is some of my favorite workout gear.  I had to keep adjusting them.  So annoying.

Under Armour– I like the tight compression shirts.  First of all they are so comfortable but second on long runs the tight shirts assure no chaffing or rubbing.  I also really like the compression shorts and running shorts.  That being said the compression shorts have a tag that will rub your back raw. GRRRRR

Mizuno Shoes–  I have tried many different shoes but when I went to Mizuno my injuries went away.  I have tried others but always went back.

Icebreaker Clothing– I love this company.  They make all of their clothes out of Merino Wool.  There socks are awesome as well as their shirts.  I wish I could say that I tried more of their stuff but it is very $$$$$$.

Bodyglide– AHHHHHH!  It prevents all chaffing.  If you are doing any long training this is a must!!!

Jaybird Bluetooth Headphones– These are great.  There are no wires to connect to your phone.  The wire that goes from the left to right occasionally is annoying if you turn your head a lot but nothing compared to the normal long wire headphones.  Also you need to were your bluetooth device on you right side because you body easily blocks the signal.

Nathan Hydration Belts–  These belts do not slush like the ones that hold big water bottles.  The small bottles allow you to take one for a 4-5 mile run and 2-3-4 for a longer run.  The other upside is that you can put water in some and a sports drink in the others.  There is also a pocket for gu or stinger waffles!

Road ID– Be safe and wear a Road ID.  I know too many people who have been hit by cars running and biking.

Sole Sports Running Store– This is a great store with an awesome owner.  I just love this place.  The sell you what you need not the most expensive items.  Lance the owner is a great guy.  During group runs he is not to good to run and have conversations with the people in the back.

These are the things I like.  I have tried so many different products and I feel that these are the best.


Electric Motorcycles


I recently needed to sell my pride and joy, a Ducati 848 motorcycle.

That bike was absolutely amazing.  When I saw it at the dealership I was instantly sold.  It was 1.5 years old in mint conditions with carbon pipes.  It’s a Ducati do I even need to tell you how it sounded when I started it up?  There is no better sound!  It was loud but not obnoxious, well maybe a little LOL.  No matter what motorcycle you have the sound of starting it up and the smell of the toxic fumes are part of the experience.  Riding in the mountains and coming out of a corner with a 1000 foot cliff on one side and opening the throttle is the ultimate feeling.  It’s the combination of the low growl, vibration, and acceleration.  Can you imagine turning that corner twisting the throttle and hearing silence?  I realize that gas is expensive and we need to be green but I can not imagine riding an electric motorcycle.  No fumes and no noise just complete silence.  What are your thoughts?  Has anyone tried one?  I know my next bike is still going to run on high-octane CO2 producing gas!


The Magic Speaker


Do you want a speaker in the kitchen or outback? Now you can have a speakers anywhere. If you have a box, a cabinet, or even a table, then you have a speaker.  The sound was amazing.  I mean we made the box from out Samuel Adams into a speaker.  Check it out below.
