This new sidecar off-road electric motorcycle is a wonder to behold. Inspired by moto shop El Solitario MC’s “Desert Wolves” adventure bikes, this version looks more futuristic than the bikes that birthed it. Spanish designer Iago Valiño used BMW’s Vision DC Roadster Concept and some inspiration from the Harleys used for the Desert Wolves to create the sidecar off-roader. It’s powered by a Bosch 18.7kWh battery underneath the hulking, low slung body. The huge bladed front fork, the flat floating single seat, and the clear rear fender look properly futuristic, as does the triple PIAA-lit flat racing-style sidecar that’s meant for gear rather than companions. LED light strips in front and back add to the futuristic ethos, and the attachment points and straps for tools and gear can extend your adventures as long as you have battery life.

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
