For those of you that don’t know, Motorcycle Riding is one of my passions. It was the basis of starting my YouTube channel. As well as one of the things I love doing, other than spending time with my family.
I have a 2008 Buell Blast that I got in 2016 from a dealership in Columbus Ohio. The Buell Blast has a 500CC air-cooled engine. My motorcycle was used to teach the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) course that the dealer taught. It has all the scuffs and scrapes from that. However, It’s been a great bike, I haven’t had any problems with it in the 4 years that I have owned it.
Buell is not one of the main motorcycle companies, and you’re probably thinking it’s Chinese manufactured. However, that’s not correct. Buell was started by Eric Buell, he was a Harley Davidson executive. He left to pursue his own motorcycle aspirations. Harley Davidson then bought it and ran it for a few years. However, they decided to close it and focus on Harley Davidson.
Learning to Ride
I learned how to ride motorcycles on that bike. I also took an MSF course through the state. It helped teach me some techniques in riding. They have one classroom day, two range days, and a test. If you pass their test they give you a certificate that you can take to the BMV and not have to take the road test.
The Buell Blast is also the motorcycle that I ride in my moto vlogs. There is a camera on my motorcycle helmet. I talk to myself and I share the videos on my YouTube channel. I haven’t been able to do it this summer. I’m currently a stay at home father. That is the reason behind the jeep, my kids and I love to go off-roading. However, I hope to be adding more moto vlogs in the future.
