Non-Moto: Hipstamatic Holiday iPhone Photos from Fuzzygalore

I’m always walking around with my iPhone in my pocket. Truth be told, one of the only reasons I got the iPhone was for it’s camera apps. I couldn’t care less about actually talking on the phone. Getting me to voluntarily do that is nothing short of pulling teeth.

My favorite camera app is Hipstamatic. With it’s funky framed films, light streaking and curious coloring, the app puts a kitschy spin on your (square) pictures that I happen to love.

Here are some holiday time Hipstamatic pics from Chez Galore and our little world:

Sexy Motorcycle Gear: Battery Tender 10 Bank Charger

Yea, yea. Billy Joel’s 20th Century Cycles has some beautiful bikes on display, but when I saw this baby on the floor there – I knew that it would bubble up a brew of burning lust in a few people!

I give you  the Battery Tender 10 Bank 12v Charger:

Needing that charging bank means you’ve probably got a lot of bikes. A lot of bikes is good.

Here at the Chez Galore Garage we aren’t quite that luxurious. We’ve got a long power strip mounted on the wall with Battery Tender Juniors keeping our bikes charged. Not as fancy, but it gets the job done.

Do you keep your bikes on the juice in the garage? What charger do you use? Share your experience with us!

Cold Weather Motorcycle Gear: Keeping Fingers Toasty

Though yesterday’s 60 degree temperatures here on Long Island would have you fooled, winter is on the way. What are you doing to keep yourself warm out on the road?

Thanks to my mom completing the circuit last Christmas with a pair of Gerbing T5 Microwire gloves (see what I did there?), I now have a full suite of electric gear from Gerbing. I have a jacket liner, pants liner and gloves. I could ride through the tundra!

I sound like a broken record but, once you finally get heated gear you will ask yourself why you waited so long.

Before the gloves came along, I was using heated grips and a pair of Parts Unlimited Snow Paws handlebar muffs – most commonly referred to as Hippo Hands though that is a particular brand. If you’re on a tight budget, a pair of muffs just might be the ticket. Like anything else, prices vary but for less than $40 you can add a layer to keep the elements at bay.

Here are some past posts about cold weather gloves and muffs:
