[sau] Nemesis - Best Seller and Great Looking


[sau] Nemesis - Best Seller and a Great Looking Ride

How do you classify what a bike is?  I know choppers, bobbers, touring bikes, sport bikes and then there is the Nemesis by [sau].  Just by walking around the bike, it looks very contemporary and off the show room but it isn't.  Then there is that HUGE rear tire.  Is it a chopper or cruise bike?  Honestly, whatever you call the Nemesis, you have to call it beauty on two wheels.


[sau], in my opinion, excels at producing bikes with a unique look and style.  When I go to NiR's shop and play with the demo rezzers, I am always reminded how attractive his bikes really are.  He does many things very well in building a bike and what he does probably best,  he gives the rider the option to easily customize the look by going into the menu settings and changing the paint sets or choosing different paints on bike parts.  In fact, I was able to get all sorts of crazy colors on the [sau] Super Ranger (a fun little café racer which we need more of).  I kind of hated the color scheme I developed yet that isn't the point, you can have a bike that fits your personality and mood by the day, minute, or second.  That's a good feature!


Riding the Nemesis

Yeah so it is pretty, can it ride?  This is where you can point your finger at a bike builder and say, "they know how to build a great bike."  [sau] bikes are getting so much better and while they were very good before I got my hands on this Nemesis, I would always consider [sau] bikes as being very precise and tight.  The Nemesis has a little slack in the handling that I would expect and want in a big bike.  Instead of being so precise, there is a greater level of fluidity in the handling. 


During my test ride, I had my graphic settings turned up so I can take pictures.  This makes riding a bit laggy for me as I'm navigating through lowered frame rates.  If the bike was too tight, I don't think I would have as easily navigated one of the top tracks at Deezul.  Not so with the Nemesis, even with choppy frame rates, the bike was very controllable and so well mannered.  The wheels were also GLUED to the road surface. Keeping rubber connected to the road isn't a want, it is a need.  Turning rates were responsive and predictive.  Making it through twisties was of little effort.

Final Thoughts: The [sau] Nemesis

We first came across NiR after a TMD expo where he sells some special edition products.  Lizzy of course bought the wiener dogs!  Every time we visit TMD we ask "where is NiR's stuff."

When we were playing with NiR's bikes, he im'd us explaining how to get the best performance with different settings.  This doesn't have anything to do with the Nemesis though it has more to do with the person who built it.  He cares about his customers and wants them to enjoy his bikes.

I have seen the Nemesis at the [sau] store and like all of the [sau] bikes, it was beautiful.  As I have had the opportunity to spend some time riding this bike, it rides so well.  Ride matters to me as it probably matters to most riders.  Even as it is a more than competent rider, it is exquisite in how it is styled and presented.  It is also a prim lightweight at 14 prims...14 PRIMS!


About [sau]

NiR McBride is an awesome builder and with every conversation I've had with him, he has always been kind and shown he cares about his customers as well as the quality of his work.  I like doing business with good people and I'm sure you do too.

[sau] has a very nice "showroom" with a test track. You'll know when you get to the end of the track, gravity will take over.  Still its enough of a track to get a feel for a new bike.  They feature a nice mix of bikes from café racers, bobbers, choppers, standards and sport bikes.

PA-18 Super Cub by Laminar Systems



Laminar Systems PA-18 The Super Cub

When I was doing more RL flying, I came across a Super Cub.  It had been fitted with big tundra tires that I recall looked to be about three feet in diameter.  This was a bush plane from Alaska flown to Texas and it looked a little like a cartoon.  Many of the books and articles I've read about aviation include stories about the venerable Cub.


National Air and Space Museum
One of my favorite books was Rinker Buck's Flight of Passage.  The true story of two brothers who restored an old Cub and flew it from New Jersey to California.  There is so much nostalgia surrounding the Cub and its iterations.  What is most endearing about this particular aircraft, it continues to be a workhorse, a trainer, and a great way to drill holes in the sky.


Other brands followed such as Aeronca, Luscombe, Stinson and to some extent Citabria, all providing aircraft very similar to the Cub and its big brother the Super Cub. One of the biggest differences between the Cub and the Super Cub was in powerplant.  The Super Cub has a much more powerful motor for such a light plane and I would suspect it climbs like a scalded bat. 


Laminar Systems has created through a great deal of collaboration among the aircraft builders community an amazing model of the Piper PA-18 Super Cub.  I can't make comparisons to RL because I've never flown a Super Cub.  If it were an Ercoupe, I could tell you all sorts of boring trivia.  There are some really cool features that have been missing in many SL aircraft:  trim, flaps that function like flaps should, and a power setting that is realistic.


Let's talk about trim for a moment and why it is special, especially for SL.  Trim tabs can be found on ailerons, rudders and elevators.  For this aircraft, there are trim tabs on the elevators.  Trim helps reduce manual pressure on the on the primary controls of the aircraft, specifically in this instance, the controls that manage pitch. A pilot may trim the aircraft for a climb, descent or level flight.  It's a labor saving tool.  I haven't seen it in SL aircraft before and I love it in this Super Cub.

For some reason, I've found SL aircraft to have flaps that function like speed brakes.  Now I'll confess to yanking back on the flap handle of a Piper Cherokee to slow it down (kinda worked) but flaps aren't speed brakes. Flaps have a lot of purposes and can be very useful in landing, taking off or flying slow.  Here we have it again, this PA-18 has flaps that act like flaps and it is refreshing to fly in SL and have the aircraft behave like a RL aircraft, as much as possible.

Some SL fixed wing aircraft are over powered for the dynamics of sim crossings.  Though a sim is 256M by 256M, the distance feels far different. In RL, we firewall the throttle to take off.  For the short distances between sim borders, why have a Cessna that flies at the speed of light?  Laminar Systems got the power setting nuances for SL absolutely right.  Put the power to 100% and you get a plane that acts like an airplane. 



The dash panel has probably more instrumentation than you would find on a RL cub but again I don't have any experience in RL cubs.  The detail and functionality is second to none.  What I've wanted is a stable general aviation aircraft in which I can fly in mouse look.  The Laminar Systems PA-18 gives me what I want in SL aviation plus it is very fun to fly.

Read the manual after you buy the aircraft and frankly, you should put this in your inventory.  I've said to friends that helicopters are easier to fly in SL than fixed wings.  This is an exception to that statement and it is and exceptional aircraft.  It comes in both conventional gear (tail dragger mode) or with floats.

1968 FLH Electra Glide - JJ Cycles


JJ Cycles - '68 FLH Electra Glide

Can machines be works of art?  When form follows function, does the function become what's most attractive aesthetically?  Motorcycles are only a means of transportation in their basic purpose and let's face it, they aren't the most comfortable or sensible forms of transportation.  Still, we're drawn to them.  That draw has to go beyond the freedom of riding and toward the art of motorcycles.


JJ Cycles has released another bike in a sustained effort to bring SL riders some classic lines coupled with solid performance.  The '68 FLH is this latest model.  Not only does it look really nice in an old school sort of way (which I prefer), it rides incredibly well as I would expect Jimmie's bikes to run.   The FLH isn't a race bike yet in 5th gear at Deezul Raceway I scored a pretty respectable time of 34.474 seconds, just a shade slower than the 33.505 posted by Jimmie Jax himself.  


The FLH isn't a two up kind of bike.  Instead, it is a solo gun slinger that can nimbly attack the sky tracks without a hitch and post some good times as you try for bragging rights with your friends.  As Jimmie told me, he likes to build bikes he would ride in RL.  I'm there, I like to ride bikes in SL I would want to ride in RL as well.  The FLH...yeah, I would ride one in a heartbeat!


Here's the other thing, well two things, this bike weighs in at 35 prims.  The other thing I've noticed over the past few months, JJ Cycles' bikes are getting better when it comes to scripting and set up.  They were good before but lately they are getting better.  Jimmie is likely an obsessed tinkerer or one of those people who is constantly trying to make a good idea even better.  Whatever it is, if the FLH is any example of things to come, he has raised the bar.


Look, riding should be fun first and foremost.  When you get on a bike to ride with your friends or just killing time exploring tracks, like Deezul Raceway, you're not wanting to be frustrated by a bike that is hard to ride.  The FLH is an easy ride, its quick for a cruiser and it was perfect out of the box.  You can easily tweak settings for your riding style and fitting your avatar on the bike isn't difficult at all. 

An Aside

Have you noticed fewer places to ride?  It is expensive owning and operating a sim and a lot of work keeping a track interesting.  Places like Deezul Raceway, Legends MC and StarRiders seem to becoming more rare.  Support your favorite tracks and those you like so we can all continue to appreciate the gift of riding these sim owners continue to give us.


About JJ Cycles

At the JJ Cycles Main Store you can try out different bikes on the test track and you might even meet Jimmie. Do ask him for his autograph.  You can also buy on Marketplace.  With so many great bike builders, JJ Cycles is one you need to look into.

Boss 225 and 225V - Classic Style


The Honey Badger and the boat of her dreams.
The Boss 225 and 225V

We have been in the market for a motor boat.  No contemporary fiberglass and gel coat boat was going to do.  What we wanted were classic lines, richly varnished wood and solid performance.  Some time ago, we visited The Mesh Shop at Dutch Harbor to play with the boats and it was there we saw the Boss 225 and 225V.  We fell in love with these beautiful boats.  Lizzy saw them first and was soon driving away before I knew what was happening.


The 225 and 225V are essentially the same boat except for the motors.  The 225 features an outboard motor that reminded me of the old Mercury outboards (if it were black) that towered off of a transom and shot a rooster tail high into the air.  The 225V has an inboard V8 motor.  Both have compartments that open to reveal fenders, fuel and safety gear.  A trailer is included with your purchase along with texture packs and flag packs so you can customize the boat to your tastes.


These are beautiful boats and imagine for a moment having your favorite piece of furniture floating in the water.  Furniture they aren't, these are two high performance little runabouts that will scream across the waves while you feel completely in control.  Sim crossings are uneventful due I'm sure to the light prim count and typical of Analyse Dean, great scripting.


During our first demo, Lizzy took off on the 225V to see what the boat could do.  Well, she overheated the motor and ran out of fuel during her test. To test is to find out where something breaks and she is a good test pilot.   Over the weeks that followed, the little boat came back into her mind and dreams.  On Valentine's Day, she had a package waiting...the Boss 225V.  I can't say if the boat looks better or if Lizzy looks better than the boat....of course she looks better!!  What was I thinking?


Like any of the Bandit or Boss boats sold at The Mesh Shop, you will find boats that are very well behaved for the turbulent nature of SL marine transportation.  Boating in SL is such a relaxing experience.  Whether it's sailing or burning gasoline, you can make a journey out of exploring sims.  Sure a teleport is far more efficient.  Yet if you could, wouldn't you want to experience this magical world with that special someone and take your time doing so?  I know I cherish those moments more than hopping from sim to sim.  Raise your sails or start the motor, it is time to hit the seas. 


The Mesh Shop

Visit the Mesh Shop and you can try out all of the boats.  There are several choices and types between power boats, sailing yachts to very cool and complex racing yachts. You can visit MarketPlace as well but what fun would that be?

Come try out the toys and its fine if you don't have any cash, have fun and play.  Your demo will continue to operate for about 15 or 20 minutes.  After that, you'll go swimming and we did!

JJ Cycles New Releases - Heritage Softails

 

JJ Cycles New Releases - Heritage Softtails
 
 If you go to the Harley Davidson website or visit one of their stores in RL, HD makes bikes for a mix of people.  I've always been attracted to the Fat Bob and Road King and I can't tell you why.  Then I come across the Heritage Softails.  They are the touring bikes, in my opinion.  When you want comfort, wind protection and the reliability of a Harley, you may want to plant your tail on a Heritage Softail.


JJ Cycles has released two Heritage Softails, the Heritage Softail and the Heritage Springer Softail.  Being somewhat of an old school kind of individual, Iike the Springer Softail a little more and that's about my taste.  Both bikes fit with my expectation of their RL influences.  They're pretty, it is that simple and they ride so very well out of the box. 


Riding is what you would expect from JJ Cycles.  These are well balanced bikes with great scripting and I've got to say, Jimmie Jax is the continual tinkerer.  He is constantly improving his products to make the bikes perform better and look better.  Jimmie has been a good friend of our Night Moves Live Music Venue and we enjoy his bikes.

Q Customs New Release - Old Soul Bobber



With some recently new releases from Q Customs, I have a cool deal.  I get to ride these bikes often before anyone else.  Q's latest release, the Old Soul Bobber, fits with my preference toward bobbers.  One of my favorites was the Twilight Bobber and I sort of see some relationship between the Old Soul and its older brother. 


This past week, I was doing some business travel and I saw this amazing bike scream down a highway.  It was a bobber, truly a custom ride and I thought of Q.  Yes, sometimes RL and SL blend.  Seeing the release announcement from Q Customs and then seeing the bike, it is a bike I would want in my inventory.


It's loud and mean but one of the things I see with Q Customs is a mix of clean and pretty with dirty.  The bike looks like it has been ridden hard and isn't some trailer queen you haul to Sturgis.  Instead, it is one you ride there.

The riding experience is similar to other Q Customs bikes, very nimble, controllable and open to customization with the menu system.  The bike is perfect out of the box and all you need to do is resize it to fit your avatar.  At ground level at Crossing Sands, the bike handled lag very well (lag because my machine doesn't like ground level anywhere).  There wasn't anything about the Old Soul Bobber I didn't like.



About Q Customs
 
Q's Customs offers some very well scripted and designed bikes.  The textures are generally very well done.  Most of his bikes cost L$2200.  Try them out at his inworld store.

B.C.C. New Release - The No Way Out

B.C.C. New Release - The No Way Out

I got started riding in SL with B.C.C. bikes.  They're great bikes and recently, Brummie Guyot has released a few very nice opportunities to explore the sky tracks on two wheels.  The No Way Out, his newest release, might be one of his best. 
The No Way Out. the bike is almost complete mesh only the tires are sculpt .The bike is just 44 prims low land impact and of course out of the box modify!! The bike has so many faces to recolor ! and the tank is easy texturing, in the tank are textures for easy texturing! And the price of the bike is just 850 L$ and would stay that price for ever.

I had an opportunity to take the No Way Out on the B.C.C. test track and was once again quite impressed with the handling.  In 5th gear, I navigated the track easily without any float, understeer, or twitchiness.  Brummie added some customization features too.  You can make the bike to fit your own aesthetic personality.  A lot of riders may like the ability to customize the look and still have a very rideable and stable hog.

We've been fans of Brummie for a long time and as I've said before, we take new riders to B.C.C. because his bikes are so stable and reliable.  You can look good, sound good and ride like a maniac without fear the bike will go shooting off a corner.

Bandit IF Race - Fruit Islands


Bandit IF Race - Fruit Islands

So I get this text from my dearest Lizzy, the Honey Badger, saying, "Bandit IF race in 45 minutes."  I gulped.  We had talked about giving it a try as a new experience.  Having written about the Fruit Island Bandit IF Races before, the idea of participating had been percolating in our minds.

Now, about Lizzy and I, we are highly competitive.  We don't do anything unless we can be perfect at it.  I was in a state getting the HUD, reading the notecards as Lizzy was in chat with the race director.  Once I had the HUD set up, we got our feet wet by showing up at the race line.

 
With the HUD armed, race wind captured we called ready along with the other racers.  Then there was this calamity as a lot of little boats circulated while the start line counted down.  I didn't hit anyone which as odd as it sounds, was kind of a goal.  We did clear the start line and followed the other racers through the Fruit Islands race course. 
 
 
When we crossed the finish line pretty much in last place I felt a little spent.  This first experience was mildly overwhelming and at the same time it was fun.  We decided to enter the second race to get the full experience.
 
The second race was a little more fun as we knew more what to do and we were competing!  Boat surrounded us and our little IF was moving pretty well.  It was very exciting and then it happened....Firestorm decided to lock up.  Sadly, we lost a couple of minutes recovering. 
 
 
Upon crossing the finish line after the second race, our first Bandit IF race experience had concluded.  We both learned a lot and after a debrief, we're still talking (adore you Honey Badger) :-).
 
If you have a chance racing boats, give the Bandit IF a try and give Fruit Islands a try.  The other racers were deeply into their own races but they were welcoming and patient with two noobs in a little boat.  Congratulations to todays Bandit IF racers and many thanks to Gator  Peterman and the other race organizers for their help and contributions.

Silvercloud Custom Bikes


Silvercloud Custom Bikes

I throw myself on the mercy of the court!  Spare me my transgressions your honor because I confess a great inconsideration.  Yes, my friends, I am indeed serious.  For quite awhile, I have been going to Legends MC, Kings Canyon to test bikes.  Why you ask (indulge me this)?  Because this track is really one of the more picturesque of the bike tracks and when I shoot pics of a bike, I like the background to look as good as the bike.  In fact, I like Legends MC so much I wrote about the sim for Showtimemagazine.net.

So here is my crime for which I stand in judgment.  As much as I've been at Legends MC, I did notice Silvercloud Custom Bikes is more than a prominent part of the sim.  I even played with the demos and I had fun on the Silvercloud bikes.  Instead of playing, I should have also written about this bike maker.  Here's why.  I liked the designs, look and feel plus and a big plus, these bikes are incredible rides.


The Brawler
There are bike makers of all stripes in SL.  Some are quite large and prolific and they produce some real nice designs that find their way into our inventories.  Like a lot of industries, a great deal of design and innovation comes from the cottage industries.  Silvercloud isn't a mega bike store, they are a small business and an innovative one.  It seems to me, this leaves them the opportunity to build what feels right to them and to develop custom bikes for their customers without the push to continue releasing new models.  Their size also encourages stellar customer service and responsiveness.  The solution to the formula is a collection of really nice bikes and great service.

Night Prowler
When I tested the demo bikes, I felt the bikes performed exactly as I would want them to perform.  Now that isn't some powerful earth shattering statement but think about it.  We can all agree we want bikes to look amazing.  We want the bikes to fit our avatars.  We want them to work out of the box and we want to try them before we buy them.  I found all of that to be true with Silvercloud:  great looks, fit was right, works out of the box and could try before buying.  The riding experience was great!  The bike did what I wanted it to do from handling corners smoothly and predictably to staying glued to the road as a bike should.  In other words, these are great bikes.


Twin Flames
As you can see from the pictures, I didn't dress correctly for a ride.  That goes to show you how much trust I placed in these bikes to stay upright.  All I needed to do after rezzing a bike was adjust for size and repositioning my avatar.  I didn't need to tweak any of the control settings.  What I got was a bike that behaved as if it was in RL. 

Then there was the sound. I have to say I like the more sedate sound in these bikes.  It added to the realism.  What I heard was a throaty V-twin sound at low idle with just the right amount of growl when I grabbed some throttle. 


Final Thoughts

When I wrote the Showtimemagazine article, I made a mental note to move Silvercloud Custom Bikes up on my list of topics.  Because I share my blog posts and articles with people associated with a topic, I felt kind of bad doing so and not also having reviewed this bike maker. 

These are great bikes and are also reasonably priced.  Silvercloud Custom Bikes is the small business you would want to support.  They're nice people and so very tolerant in my frequent visits to test other builders' bikes which I hope suggests a collegial and respectful tone among builders. 

About Silvercloud Custom Bikes

I recommend a visit to Legends MC, Kings Canyon to ride the track but while you're there, try some of Silvercloud's bikes.  You won't be disappointed and I'm betting you'll be pretty impressed.  You can make purchases through Marketplace as well but really, isn't it more fun to play with the bike you'll end up loving?

JJ Cycles - Skull Basher - NEW RELEASE



JJ Cycles NEW RELEASE - Skull Basher
A Contemporary Ape Hanging Springer

Jimmie Jax is out of his mind!  Sure he might come across all kind and friendly but look at this bike.  Jimmie is nuts!!  When you think of a springer, you might think "old school" hot metal and oil.  When you think of a bobber, you might think of rat rod.  When you think of contemporary, you might think of sophisticated and conservative.  What lurks in Jimmie's mind to put all of those features into one bike?  Does it work visually?  Ummm yeah and it works very well!


When Jimmie shared the pics with me last night, I thought, "this is a cool looking ape hanger."  Pictures don't do it justice, seeing it up close and personal is a far better experience.  It looked pretty mean and if it is wrong to put "mean" with "pretty" then this bike is really pretty hot!  Imagine the captain of the cheerleader squaed in an old Chevelle smoking the tires and yeah, it's her car.  Is Jimmie really nuts?  Nope though he sure knows how to turn out some awesomely crazy bikes and I'm liking the Skull Basher the more I look at it.


Riding the  Skull Basher

I like how Jimmie's bikes ride anyway and the Skull Basher is no surprise.  It's just that good.  These big old cruisers act as if they would in RL.  They lean over slow and sound loud.  I've said before how much I love realism in SL vehicles and even as this would be a RL custom, it look as if it were something you would see and want to ride in RL.  Instead of dropping over $20K for a bike like this, in SL you can drop a few dollars and get the ride of your life!


You have a lot of choices of great bike builders in SL.  I get the coolest deal of anyone and get to ride these bikes.  Sometimes I ride them before anyone else and I don't get paid for this! I have the best job in all of SL!!  Jimmie is one of my favorite builders.  Not only does he make great bikes, he's a decent guy and that says a lot to me. 

Who would want to buy the Skull Basher?  It isn't someone looking for snuggly, sedate or tame bikes.  This if for someone who wants a solid ride that looks tough and mean.  I've taken a lot of JJ Cycles on the sky tracks and played with Jimmie's demo bikes at his shop, they go where I want them to go without surprises and they can flat out haul!  If you want that kind of bike, you know you ought to give JJ Cycles a try and be sure to try on the Skull Basher.
