…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Snaefell?


Motorcycle sidecars are usually just additions to a bike that allow you to bring someone else along for the ride without having them hold on to you and stare at the back of your helmet all day.

François Knorreck saw things differently however, as his right-hand chain driven Laverda 3CL inspired a sidecar that turns his ride into something that more closely resembles a car than a motorcycle.

In all, it took him 10 years, more than 10,000 hours, and $21,000 to convert the bike into what you see here (he calls it the Snaefell) but for the two passengers that get to sit in an enclosed capsule of speed, the time, energy and money were most definitely worth it.

…Your drink is your personality?

So you’re at the bar, and you go to order a margarita. Ever stop and wonder what that drink is saying about your personality to those around you? According to one waiter, it says, “You’re fun, good in bed, and naughty with a sense of style. If you don’t have it with salt you’re a wimp”. How about a vodka martini? “Sophisticated. You’re classy, old school or a James Bond wannabe”. Sound like someone you know? How about these:

  • Cosmopolitan – Prissy, over ordered and passé. Favored by Manolo Blahnik wearing Candace Bushnell devotees who spend all their money on shoes but live in rat hole apartments. Rapidly becoming an old lady drink.
  • Chardonnay – You know what you like. Boring. Predictable. The missionary position of white wine.
  • Galliano –You’re a waterbed, lava lamp, reel to reel, gold chain wearing, wall to wall shag carpet loving, swinging 70’s disco fool.
  • Rob Roy – You’re an alcoholic.

After reading this list, you may just want to reconsider the message you’re sending out when you order a round of sidecars for the bar.
