Ural has been producing some of the most beloved heavy sidecar motorcycles since the WWII era. The bikes have changed quite a lot over the years, but they’re still what Jay Leno describes as “the perfect mix of modern and retro.” The new 2018 Ural Gear Up motorcycle leaves us inclined to agree. Just shy of 750cc of engine gives you powerful low end torque and a comfortable cruising speed between 65 and 75mph, which, all things considered, is a sweet spot for long trips down the road or the trail. While you will lose some maneuverability with the addition of the sidecar and the third wheel, this is still a more than fitting survival bike for the apocalypse thanks to increased stability and gear space. This particular iteration of the bike is awesome enough as is, but it gets even better because Ural teamed up with the American Motorcycle Association and Motorcycle Hall of Fame to give away the bike to one lucky U.S. resident. Enter to win the raffle with a $5 donation to the Motorcycle Hall of Fame.

Ah, the waffle weave. Looks cool, feels great, reminds us of toasted Eggos. You’ve seen them before–probably in a fancy store or hotel–but Parachute’s brand new Waffle Towels are different. They’re spun using innovative Aerocotton Technology, which basically means they’ll be dry by the time your significant other finally gets out of the shower and realizes you stole their towel. Parachute’s Waffle Towels come in two sizes and two neutral colors. Plus, their 100% cotton construction means they start soft and only get softer with time. Even Kevin McCallister would approve.
