Watch This Bird Take out a Motorcycle Rider Going 115 MPH

Watch This Bird Take out a Motorcycle Rider Going 115 MPH This is not the kind of wildlife encounter anyone would hope for.

There have been numerous Harley -Davidson official Hallmark releases over the year commemorating important bikes, like the 1971 Superglide, but a quick search confirms that this is the first non-HD Hallmark motorcycle.

Christmas Cheers is the second studio album by American men's a cappella singing group, Straight No Chaser, produced with Deke Sharon. It was released in the US on November 3, 2009. It has peaked to number 38 on the U.S. Billboard 200.

Hallmark 1969 Honda CB750 Keepsake Ornament

There are plenty of Harley-Davidson branded decorative items out there, too many really, and untold generic Christmas "biker" and "motorcycle" themed knick-knacks, so this new offering from Hallmark is a welcome change. The 2018 Hallmark Keepsake Ornament depicting the 1969 Honda CB750 K0, in candy red Metallica, is about as accurate a replica as you could hope for in this scale, which is about the size of your hand. Roughly, it is 4 inches long, and 2 1/2 inches tall, and 1 1/2 inches wide; too small for Barbie, but too big for your Star Wars action figures.

That Time Harley Sued Honda For Building Imitation Harleys

That Time Harley Sued Honda For Building Imitation Harleys The Honda Shadow ACE hit too close to the mark Harley-Davidson wasn't doing so well in the 1980s and 1990s. The company was alive but had a reputation for selling overpriced cruisers that were woefully unreliable. Meanwhile, the Big Four Japanese manufacturers—Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki, and Yamaha—were doing well with their Universal Japanese Motorcycles here in the States and decided to start building cruisers to appeal to more of the American market.

Christmas Cheer Foundation is a not-for-profit all-volunteer group that prepares and delivers meals to needy families and seniors on Christmas Day. Christmas Cheer Foundation Bring Jesus to the needy and they will bring Jesus to you.

Christmas Eve is depressing for Frasier at Cheers . Rebecca makes everyone work late, Sam realizes he's the only one who didn' t get Rebecca a gift, and Norm 's Santa Claus buddies gather to celebrate the end of the season. Ted Danson as Sam Malone. Kirstie Alley as Rebecca Howe.

There have been numerous Harley-Davidson official Hallmark releases over the year commemorating important bikes, like the 1971 Superglide, but a quick search confirms that this is the first non-HD Hallmark motorcycle. No longer do you have to re-purpose toys in order to hang the original superbike on your tree. Though if you are fans of anything other than Honda you are still out of luck. Tangentially motorcycle related, and very strangely,, if you are a fan of Darryl's custom post-apocalypse Honda Nighthawk from "The Walking Dead" there is also a Keepsake ornament for that.

It is not really surprising that the Honda CB750 would be the first of the Japanese bikes to be made into an ornament, but it is odd that they would do it for 2018, and not wait for the 50th anniversary next year. Now that Hallmark and Honda have a relationship, perhaps we will get more iconic bikes to hang on the tree? A red 1960s Super Cub (with Santa riding it?) would be great and recreate their famous "You meet the nicest people..." ad from back in the day. Their early, insanely complex, yet classic looking five and six cylinder grand prix bikes from the 1960s would be sweet as well.

I found my example at Kohls, but you can get them online, at your local Hallmark store, and many other places. They are well made, but be careful with the handlebars and mirrors, as I dropped mine and already broke one shooting the photos.

Waymo Launches the First Commercial Self-Driving Taxi Service—With Caveats.
Waymo, Google’s self-driving car project, hit another milestone on Wednesday by launching an Uber-like service in Arizona that’s driven by a fleet of autonomous taxis. But there’s some caveats to the service. Google's Self-Driving Cars Have Trouble With Basic Driving Tasks: Report The service, dubbed Waymo One, will ferry a group of riders that have participated in the company’s autonomous vehicle pilot program since 2017 around a roughly 100-square-mile zone across four cities in the Phoenix area—Chandler, Tempe, Mesa, and Gilbert. The catch is that, now, they’ll be paying fares.
