It’s Friday! Be Happy and Dance!

Editor Nick here.  Had to post this, I’m sorry but I just had to.  It’s a querk of mine to post a Friday Happy Dance on Twitter and Facebook every week and my good friends over at @ottawagoodtime sent me a Biker Friday Happy Dance.

On looking on YouTube it would appear there’s a whole subculture of dancing bikers posting videos of them suited and booted busting some moves.  Have you done this?  Send us a link in the comments below.  One of the videos you’ll have to watch on YouTube as embedding has been disabled but it’s worth it. Enjoy and Happy Friday! 🙂


The New Suzuki GSX1250FA on Video.

Below we’ve got a couple of videos featuring the new Suzuki GSX1250FA.  Early word on the bike is very positive with the general consensus being that it’s a good all-rounder capable of commuting, weekend blasting, and touring.  Also it’s the price that’s drawing most attention with the UK price tag of £6795 which is more than reasonable for a bike with the GSX1250FA’s spec.  The first video is Suzuki’s own glossy teaser for the bike, and the second is from MCNs brief try of the bike at its launch in Spain.

RTWW featured the Suzuki GSX1250FA in an earlier post here.

Our New Partners Write To Ride & Ride It Right..

RTWW has made some new friends in the last few days, riders rights site, Write To Ride,

and motorcycle safety organisation Ride It Right.

Both are based in Northern Ireland and speak a lot of sense on both subjects.  RTWW fully supports the aspirations for motorcycling both organisations are working towards.  We are sharing  our other partner, Steve Baker Motorcycles and his maintenance tips videos found on our YouTube channel, RideTheWildWindTV with Ride It Right to help inform as many riders as possible of the basic safety checks they should be carrying out regularly to get the best from their bike.  Be sure to visit both of our new partners sites and help make a strong lobbying voice for NI bikers.  You can also keep up with events and news from Write to Ride via their RSS feed in our RSS News column on the right.

We’re Back!..

Hey fellow Bikers

After a short hiatus due to new baby (God I need sleep) and a small spill on the ice a couple of weeks ago (OW! the noise of scraping metal haunts me still) the blog was on hold along with plans to revamp the Ride The Wild Wind web site.  Well both are now done and integrated into a bit more of a  modern look, that hopefully you’ll like and take part in as it’s a little more interactive now.  Also we’re no longer a Northern Ireland specific site so if you have a UK club you’d like added to our pages drop us an email at and we’ll get you listed and featured on the blog.

RTWW will be commenting on bike news, giving our own spin and adding a splash of opinion, and you can now take part in that, by signing up to the blog and commenting on the stories.  Also send us your pics of you and your pride and joy and we’ll get them up on our Flickr site, as well as featuring funny/cool ones on the blog itself.  New to RTWW is the ‘Your Voice’ section which will feature Polls to get your opinion on motorcycling’s burning issues as well as getting some fun views as well.  You can also check out our YouTube Channel at and we’re looking for any hints & tips you may have to join Steve’s in helping new and old riders get the best out of their bikes.

You’ll still find us on Twitter, as well so drop us an @ if you tweet yourself.

Hope you like the new look Ride The Wild Wind and let your biker mates know we’re here.  Ride Safe : )
