Ravens Donate Pair of HD’s to New Orleans PD

HD-pOLICE-4First it was a full page ad in the Times-Picayune,thanking the residents of New Orleans for their hospitality.  Then the Baltimore Ravens owner, Steve Bisicotti, purchased a pair of Harley-Davidson FLHP police bikes and donated them to NOPD for the assistance that was given to the team during its stay in the Big Easy.

Typically the police departments in cities that host the Super Bowl provide the visiting teams 24 hour security and police escorts to and from the stadium for team buses.

“We wanted to do something to show our appreciation for how well our team, our families and our fans were treated by everyone representing New Orleans,” Bisciotti said in a statement released by the team.

The bikes were  presented by Ravens Super Bowl star Jacoby Jones, a New Orleans native, during a press conference Wednesday. Mayor Mitch Landrieu and police superintendent Ronal Serpes accepted the gift on behalf of the NOLA PD’s traffic division.

Motorcycle Transforms Just Like R2D2

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away a small beepy droid showed us that flipping from two legs to three at the drop of a hat can be pretty handy. Moving slowly and manoeuvring in tight spots, two of his wheely legs worked a treat. But if he had to pick up the pace? Just flip-out lucky leg number three. 

Fast forward to today, and that same principle is being applied to the latest generation of urban cycles right here on Earth. And leading the way is the UNO III Streetbike – deftly switching from two-wheeled dicycle to sleek, three-wheeled sports bike (and back again) at a moment’s notice.

transformation animationIn Uno Mode, the U3 supports itself on its two rear wheels. Controlled by internal gyros to maintain stability, it makes tight turns and slow, controlled movement a breeze. In fact, in this mode the U3’s footprint is so small that you could even take it in a lift, drive it around the office, or park it in your hallway at home. But it’s when you open up the throttle that this ingenious urban vehicle turns from curious oddity to mind-blowing wonder. 

DescriptionIt’s like something out of TRON! 

Because as you pick up speed, the U3’s third wheel automatically folds out, the rear wheels slide back and the U3 becomes a sleek urban streetbike. And all without sacrificing your overall stability and control. It’s like riding around on your very own transformer! 

The electric motor produces zero emissions, so you can ride around knowing you’re not damaging the planet. What’s more, it’s incredibly economical to run. A single charge from a domestic power socket will take you 30-35 miles, and recharging time is around 3-4 hours – making this the perfect way to beat the traffic jams, and make stuffy buses and packed commuter trains a thing of the past. Artoo would be proud.

Jumping For Jesus

Aaron Ramsey needs space to preach, usually a parking lot’s worth.

That’s where he’ll be Saturday and Sunday when his motorcycle-jumping ministry surges through a wall of fire and over nine buses outside Calvary Baptist Church in Middleburg Florida.

The Augusta, Ga.-based preacher on wheels said he was originally inspired by the legendary motorcycle daredevil Evel Knievel. Now, planning and prayer go into making safe, yet exciting jumps to strengthen his witnessing of the word of God.

“Once we become a servant of Jesus, we are obligated to use the talents that we have to share the gospel for Christ,” said Ramsey, 49.

Motorcycle stunts aren’t usually part of preaching the word, admits Calvary’s associate pastor, Tim Pledger. But as when Jesus used a story to explain a greater spiritual truth, Pledger invited Ramsey to give his flock entertainment and a message.
