What is Brat Style?

It ain't no german sausage or hot dog... 
it's a very sick style of motorcycle design based on vintage 70's and 80's motorcycles... it's been elevated by Deus and copied by many. One of my favs is the 45 bike by Wrench Monkees. I also love that new guys are rolling in and doing very similar builds like the boys from Steel Bent Customs and Garage Project Motorcycles

Not your Father's Cafe Racer

Yeah -- we decided that it was time to show off some sweet brat style bikes. Most of these can be found at Bike Efix, Deus or The Bike Shed. I'm working on my first CB750 so I'll be showing the results as I go. I need to give props to the fine folks at Dime City. They are the place that I found all the goodies for my revamp. Pipes, Gauges, Handlebars, Seats, and more. Hopefully this will be the start of some very cool California Bikes.

Lil Wayne Sizzurp Overdose?

So what the heck is ssizzurp?
Sizzurp is a totally addictive concoction that gets the user high, made by combining prescription-strength cough syrup with Mountain Dew or Coca-Cola, then just add some Jolly Ranchers for flavor.

No wonder he had a seizure.

Coffee Actually Makes You Live Longer?

Okay, so according to Dr Neal Freedman, one of the researchers from the National Cancer Institute, Coffee contains some good stuff and some bad stuff. But the good stuff might actually be really beneficial to your health. Staving off death being the most -- uhh, life altering?

"Coffee contains more than 1000 compounds that might affect the risk of death. The most well-studied compound is caffeine, although similar associations for caffeinated and decaffeinated coffee in the current study and a previous study suggest that, if the relationship between coffee consumption and mortality were causal, other compounds in coffee—for example, antioxidants, including polyphenols—might be important."

All of which means, of course, that next time someone says you're drinking too much coffee, you know exactly what to say. [NEJM via The Telegraph]

Coffee Makes You Smarter

Coffee doesn’t just keep you awake, it may literally make you smarter as well.
The active ingredient in coffee is caffeine, which is a stimulant and the most commonly consumed psychoactive substance in the world.
Caffeine’s primary mechanism in the brain is blocking the effects of an inhibitory neurotransmitter called Adenosine.
By blocking the inhibitory effects of Adenosine, caffeine actually increases neuronal firing in the brain and the release of other neurotransmitters like dopamine and norepinephrine.
Many controlled trials have examined the effects of caffeine on the brain, demonstrating that caffeine can improve mood, reaction time, memory, vigilance and general cognitive function .
Bottom Line: Caffeine potently blocks an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain, leading to a net stimulant effect. Controlled trials show that caffeine improves both mood and brain function.
