SEO -er / Z200 -er

Last Saturday I was able to witnessed the launching of 2nd SEO contest at Jill's The Fort. It took me 20 minutes with my z200 in getting there. Why I am there? I'm joining the contest. Do I have a future in SEO? Heck no, I just want to know about it. Just like my Z200, SEO is interesting. Let's play fellaz!

Biker's Creed

I ride because I enjoy it.

I ride because I enjoy the freedom I feel from being exposed to the elements, and the vulnerability to the danger that is intrinsic to riding.

I do not ride because it is fashionable to do so. I ride my machine, not wear it.

My machine is not a symbol of status. It exists simply for me, and me alone.

My machine is not a toy. It is an extension of my being, and I will treat it accordingly, with the same respect as I have for myself.

I strive to understand the inner-workings of my machine, from the most basic to the most complex. I will learn everything I can about my machine, so that I am reliant upon no one but myself for it's health and well-being.

I strive to constantly better my skill of control over my machine. I will learn its limits, and use my skill to become one with my machine so that we may keep each other alive. I am the master, it is the servant. Working together in harmony, we will become an invincible team.

I do not fear death. I will, however, do all possible to avoid death prematurely. Fear is the enemy, not death. Fear on the highway leads to death, therefore I will not let fear be my master. I will master it.

My machines will outlive me. Therefore, they are my legacy. I will care for them for future bikers to cherish as I have cherished them, whoever they may be.

I do not ride to gain attention, respect, or fear from those that do NOT ride, nor do I wish to intimidate or annoy them. For those that do not know me, all I wish from them is to ignore me. For those that desire to know me, I will share with them the truth of myself, so that they might understand me and not fear others like me.

I will never be the aggressor on the highway. However, should others f*ck with me, their aggression will be dealt with in as severe manner as I can cast upon them.

I will show respect to other bikers more experienced or knowledgeable than I am. I will learn from them all I can. However, if my respect is not acknowledged or appreciated, it will end.

I will not show disrespect to other bikers less experienced or knowledgeable than I am. I will teach them what I can. However, if they show me disrespect, they will be bitch-slapped.

It will be my task to mentor new riders, that so desire, into the lifestyle of the biker, so that the breed shall continue. I shall instruct them, as I have been instructed by those before me. I shall preserve and honor traditions of bikers before me, and I will pass them on unaltered.

I will not judge other bikers on their choice of machine, their appearance, or their profession. I will judge them only on their conduct as bikers. I am proud of my accomplishments as a biker, though I will not flaunt them to others. If they ask, I will share them.

I will stand ready to help any other biker that truly needs my help. I will never ask another biker to do for me what I can do for myself.

I am not a part-time biker. I am a biker when, and where ever I go. I am proud to be a biker, and hide my chosen lifestyle from no one.

I ride because I love freedom, independence, and the movement of the ground passing beneath me. But most of all, I ride to better understand myself, my machine, the lands in which I ride, and to seek out and know other bikers like myself.

Instant expert motorbikes:5 Mistakes Before you make them.

postet by: Bertie Simmons
From Stuffer's Guide.

1. Don't buy a bew bike as complete novice

You will crash and/or drop the bike, sure as eggs become broken eggs. Learn your trade on a solid pre-owned bike, then upgrade when you've learned to filter with finesse and corner with confidence.

2. Don't be a stranger

If we see a fellow biker stranded, we stop and help. Outside the M25, we also wave at each other. It's a shared experience so join the local club, go to bike meets and speak to other riders.

3. Learn to appreciate your bike's performance in a safe environment: take an advanced riding course or attend a 'race school.

4. Don't ignore basic maintenance

All bikes have a small tool kit under the seat, so learn to use it. Something as daft as incorrect tire pressures can have you on your arse. Make cleaning and tweaks part of your Sunday ritual.

5. Try before you buy.

An Italian 'large' won't cover a beer-swilling builder from Brum. Sizes generally vary depending on where you are in the world. Euro sizes are going to be larger for asians. Helmets also differ, with one brand's large being another's XL. Buy the expensive kit. As bikers say - if you have a P10 000 head, buy a P10 000 lid.

How many have z200?

As I ride my z200 going to my office. I seen 3 or 4 with the same bike whether tracking the West Service Rd. or the SLEX. So, I was wondering how many really have z200 on the streets? I don' know where to find a real data about the volume regarding z200, maybe from LTO or from the supplier itself but it will be hard and time consuming. I tried once asking the shop where I bought my z200, he said "Currently, we release a hundred units of z200". Then, I remember that the MCP forums have a list for z200 riders. And I believe that MCP forums was legitimate site for getting information about motorcycles besides Xplorer Philippines Org. And the last count was 131 as of this date. Basically, this will show only active members from the forums that owns z200 and you can find them in any part of the 7 000 and counting islands of the Philippines. In addition, those records were "online" numbers, meaning I can estimate that there are more than 131 z200 owners out there that do not join the online community of the MCP.
