I want to wish all of my readers a merry Christmas and I hope the best for you and your families during this new year coming. Thank you all for supporting this site this year. I hope to continue to provide you stuff that you want to read in the future. I should have a new post up in a few days but until then take it easy and keep the shiny side up. Check out this article on things to consider before buying a retro motorcycle helmet. Biker Helmet Considerations.
Found this article about a biker being killed while leaving the Bulldog Bash. They are saying it may have been a planned hit. If you don't know what the Bulldog Bash is, it is an annual rally put on by HA in England. A few of the guys from our club have been and they said it was a great event. I hope this kind of thing gets taken care of. It isn't good to have crap like that assosiated with great events like the Bulldog Bash. Read more about the story below;
Rochefort is a beer that I have always enjoyed. It has a great taste and is very enjoyable down to the last drop but to my disgust the heat has obviously got to this bottle. When I poured it up it had no head at all and the alcohol flavor is very strong. This isn't how the beer usually is (I have had plenty of them). So I am going to go ahead and tell you a little about the beer but I am not going to do a full review of it because even though I know it is a great beer I need the beer here to taste to give you some of the finer details. I will tell you this, it is one of the better bBelgians that I had drank. Before finding this beer Chimay had been my favorite. Once I tried Rochefort though I had found a new favorite. It has a spicy, almost pepery taste that is a little sweet and it has a great finish. It is brewed in the Trappist tradition by monks in the the Abbey of St-Remy, in the southern part of Belgium. It was founded in 1230, and sometime around 1595 the monks began to brew beer. The beer is 9.2% ABV and is the "green cap" or Brown (bruin) variety. Here is a link to the Rochefort web site. If you will look at the glass you will see that it has the Rochefort name on it. My co-workers gave me that and a few other beer glasses and some beer to fill them with as my going away gift when I left Belgium (what a great bunch of co-workers!). I wish I could finish the review, I will when I can order another one from a few of the importers around. Until next time, enjoy your beer and please don't drink and ride. I also want to thank everyone that visits Open Road Biker. It has now been around for a year. I hope we have another great year.
Every now and then I find a good motorcycle site that I want let yall know about on here. Today I have one for those of you bikers over in England. Do you find yourself looking for motorcycles for sale? Maybe you are looking to get rid of the one you have so you can pick up another. Well that is what MforS is here for, listing your motorbikes for sale or listing a want ad for a bike. I have been cruising the site and they seem to have a fair amount of bikes listed but it is not too crowded. You can also use an advanced search feature and narrow the selections down by the type of bike you are looking for, location of the bike, year, price, and even the age of the advertisement. The best thing about it is that it is free to list your bike. The only thing required to advertise your ride is for you to register on the site. Now that is a good deal!
Here are a few more features; Upload up to six pictures
You have unlimited text to describe your ride
Your email address is not shown to prevent spam
There is also a question and answer feature so that the advertiser can respond to questions
The site is straight forward with no fluff and all of that stuff to distract people from looking at your ad. Heck they even have a section for dirt bikes and quads bikes for sale. So head on over and check it out for yourself. I believe I am going to be listing some stuff on there.
Finally, I am reviewing another beer! I know yall missed this article so I am bringing it back. This one is a pretty good one too! This beer was probably the most enjoyable beer that I have drank for these reviews. Well here it is, the name is Orval. It is a true Trappist beer made by the Cistercian monks of Orval in Belgium. If you would like to go to the oficial site, here is a link.
This is a reddish/light brown beer that made an awesome, huge head while pouring. It looked like I had made a beer float! The fragrance was a strong but sweet. It made my mouth water just thinking about it. The first taste was a little bitter but surprisingly it had a real smooth finish. It is hard to explain but usually when the beer is bitter I have a hard time drinking it but this one went down real well. It has a 6.2% alcohol content so it is not one of the stronger Belgian beers. So here we go with the ratings.
Aroma; This had a great aroma. This beer was one of those where the smell reflected the taste very close. Appearance What a great looking beer! I was ready to drink this beer as soon as I poured it. I usually wait for the foam to flatten just a little but I didn't waste any time drinking this one. Flavor The flavor of this beer was just as pleasing as the look and smell. Yes it did have a slight bitter start but it did not detract from the flavor, it only added to it. Palate What a finish, smooth with a taste of barley malt and that bitterness came from the hops.
This is the first beer review where I am going to strongly encourage you to try this one. I guarantee you will not regret it. This will definitely be a beer that I will keep on hand. As always drink responsibly and don't drink and ride.
I just purchased my house a few months ago and the garage floors are in pretty bad shape. They are oily, stained, and look like they have seen years of use. I have been thinking about cleaning them up and putting some type of coating on them. The latest epoxies last for a while and they also add value to your home. To top it all off they look good. Guys, that is your room, make it look right. Tell me about the stuff that you have done or are doing to your garage.
