Live to ride

Riding a motorcycle, either a small, tall moped or a Big Balls V-Twin or a high-performance Supermoto bike, is all over the world the same. Motorcycling is like a ribbon all over any borders, all over any religions or social structures. Motorcycling seems a united feeling in any age and for any gender. And because this seems to be the only truth, this TV commercial works and hits your emotions in Far East and West Europe or South America or any other place in this world. Isn't it?

To build your bike or to customize and maintain it, a garage in Portugal looks like a garage in Portland, WA or Dinslaken, Germany. Received this nice photo by Kruizin Frank Bick from their visit at friends in Portugal. Like it was written at the wall - Have fun and a nice time, mates!

More Jewelry by Silberflöz

Die Arbeiten des Industriedesigners Moritz Wenz sind von einer robusten und klaren Linie gekennzeichnet, Identität und Heimatverbundenheit spielen eine große Rolle und
der Fokus liegt auf inländischer Produktion. Pflanzlich gegerbte Leder werden in einer Solinger Leder-Manufaktur zu Taschen, Gürteln und Armbändern verarbeitet.
Inspiration für die SERIE FLÖZ® lieferten die robusten Taschen und Textilien der Arbeiter aus dem Bergbau und der rheinischen Schwerindustrie. Die Besonderheit
bei dieser Kollektion ist der Einsatz einer alten Niettechnik, welche Nähte überflüssig macht.

Die Schmuckstücke der Serie werden in Familienbetrieben in Pforzheim und in der Werkstatt in Düsseldorf gefertigt. Die Produkte der Serie sind extrem strapazierfähig, sozusagen Kumpel fürs Leben – was nicht zuletzt durch einen eigens durchgeführten Untertagetest auf 1500 Meter Tiefe bewiesen wurde. Der Verband für Handwerk und Industrie nominierte die Serie für den Designpreis FORM. Moritz Wenz eröffnete jüngst im Düsseldorfer Stadtteil Flingern seinen ersten Laden: Die ‚ZENTRALE‘. Ein Name, der direkten Hinweis auf die Mehrfachfunktion des Lokals gibt. Angegliedert an den Verkaufsraum auf der Lindenstraße sind der Showroom und die Werkstatt des Industriedesigners.

Foo Fighters Rope

Rope is the first single by the alternative rock band Foo Fighters, from their seventh studio album Wasting Light. Foo Fighters was originally formed in 1994 by Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl as a one-man project and later grouped as band. They won three Grammy Awards and all six records in the past were nominated. See what with Wasting Light happens.

Some lines of the refrain:
Choke! On a kiss, I thought I'd save my breath for you
Choke! On a kiss, I thought I'd save my breath for you
Give me some rope I'm coming loose, I'm hanging on you
Give me some rope I'm coming loose, I'm pulling for you now
Give me some rope I'm coming, out of my head, into clear when you, go,
I come Lose
