Bike week 2010 custom bikes youtube video

I know I made a post about a bike week youtube video I took in here a while back. But I made a different one too, this one about some very cool looking custom motorcycles that were on display at the Daytona speedway.

They were fantastic looking and the paint jobs were incredible. They even had some cool trikes and four wheel bikes. So I thought I’d show you this video. Even if your not a fan of motorcycles you’ll love the looks of these.

Next year I’ll go earlier and take a lot more pictures and videos of bike week. But for now enjoy this custom bike youtube video from bike week 2010! :)

Universal Studios Harry Potter land grand opening June 18th!

Harry Potter world

Well we finally have an official opening date of the eagerly awaited Harry Potter land at Universal Studios. The head honcho’s at Universal has said the grand opened will be June 18!

Now, noticed I said that’s the “grand opening”. That is when they really make it official, hold the press conference and all that good stuff. But I already said they are selling vacation packages with Harry Potter land included for May 28 or so.

That’s because they always have a soft opening for any new ride or attraction. A soft opening means they open the attraction, or in this case the gates to Harry Potter land. Not all the shops or rides may be open during the soft opening.

Popeye and Bluto Bilge Rat Barges water ride at Universal Studios

Here’s another youtube video I made. This one is of Popeye’s and Bluto’s Bilge Rat Barges water ride at Island of Adventure in Universal Studios. From the video it does not look like you will get very wet, but that is wrong!

Popeye and Bluto’s Bilge-Rat Barges is the third water ride located in Universal’s Islands of Adventure Park. This whitewater rafting ride is based on the Popeye cartoons. The Bilge-Rat Barges opened in 1999 and it still is one of the country’s most popular themed versions of this staple attraction. It has fantastic thrills and spills and you DO get wet!

Riders get in a big circular raft and go down a river being soaked by waterfalls. As you go along the ride you are hit with water from top to bottom. Don’t be surprised if you’re completely soaked when it’s all over! This experience really offers bang-for-your-buck.
