Vodka-powered motorcycle sets speed record

A spirit maker has successfully run a motorbike at 113 mph at the Bonneville Salt Flats, having fuelled it with his vodka waste products.

Ryan Montgomery completed a speed trial at the famous land-speed record site, and even temporarily held the fastest-ever time in class.

Nicknamed Sudden Wisdom, ironically after the distiller's rye whiskey brand, the bike was built up from a non-running 1980 Yamaha XS650 that was first found abandoned in a field.

As for the fuel, distilling vodka creates a 'head' that is too impure to drink and so is separated and discarded.

Panhandlers donate hundreds of toys to hospital

Stuffed animals go to children in emergency, X-ray departments

Members of the Southeast Alaska Panhandlers Motorcycle Club rumbled their way up to Bartlett Regional Hospital on Friday, hundreds of toys in tow.

The toys were the result of the club’s 24th annual Toy Run, during which members of the club ride through town and collect toy donations at the Douglas Fire Station. Justin Papenbrock, the secretary for the club, said they didn’t have quite as many riders as usual this year due to weather but that didn’t dampen the spirits of people looking to donate toys.

“It was a little rainy, so we didn’t get the following that we usually get,” Papenbrock said, “but people made up for it fairly well at the fire house, with walk-ins and people showing up, still showing good support. That was good. We always cross our fingers for better weather with a larger pack, but we’re always happy to get what we get.”

Bikers roll down life's highway together with a solid bond forged on two wheels

STURGIS, S.D. - They call her “Blinker.”

Her real name is Kattathu Johnson, and she’s a U.S. Army combat veteran from Houston at her first Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in the Black Hills of South Dakota.

Johnson, a member of the Wounded Warrior Project that helps veterans find peace through “motorcycle therapy,” earned her nickname in an unusual way.

Mile after mile on her way to Sturgis last week, riding a Honda 750 Shadow in a tight group with other veterans, she didn’t realize her left turn signal was on.

It was Johnson’s first long motorcycle trip since she got into biking a year ago, and she was so engrossed in the beautiful scenery, the soothing rumble of the bike engines around her and the camaraderie of veterans, that she didn’t notice her bike’s “blinker” never shut off.
