Follow your passion – Urbanija shop

One of my friends used to always tell me – know your passion and everything will turn just fine.
And he was right.

My passion in life was motorcycles, bikes, business, marketing, and sales – but there was a time when I seriously doubted about that – Is it really what I want? Is there something else for me in this big whole world?

The doubts visited me after 2009 when I and my friend opened an extreme sports inventory shop. We followed our passion for the bikes, cars, motorcycles and ..

Bikes, Girls and Photo Shots…

I was lucky enough to be always surrounded by a variety of women most of my life, as women bring the attention you sometimes need in the world of marketing and sales. As they say – Sex Sells

So here are some of the shotsI had over the years with the girls and motorcycles – during the events I organised, or magazine photoshots for articles, or simply representing a motorcycle business. Some of them I took myself, some of them were taken with me and them.

We boys love & respect girls, and w..

Expensive lessons or the story of a race-breed Husqvarna SMR 450 RR

There was a time when I wasn’t so good with investing money (or thinking ahead). This lesson has taught me to always check my Return Of Investment (ROI) on things, projects, and people.

So the story begins when one day I get a chance to buy my  dream bike – a Husqvarna 450 SMR RR. The two “R’s” and the end shows it is not an everyday toy. I had a desktop wallpaper for this bike for almost two years, and ,finally, I could buy one. It was a well-used bike, really raced and seen some hardships. ..

Dreams DO come true – STUNTS

Most of my childhood I was an overweight kid. Not really athletic as I didn’t find sports which I liked. But around 14 years old I got my first bike – and boy did I enjoy it… And at that moment my dream was to learn how to wheelie it. And one night I had a dream where I was wheeling it – I had the feeling of balance, and my heart was filled with joy.

What do you know, a few days after – I did wheelie it and felt the same kind of experience like in the dream.

As I aged, I wanted to transfer..

Cafe racers – building something from nothing

The idea that a man can take anything in his hands, making it better and then sell it for profit was known to me since I was a kid. I used to buy crashed motorcycles from USA and UK markets, send them over to Lithuania, fix them, replace broken parts or even repair the damaged ones, repaint it, make it look good and be good and sell it.  That, I think, was a secret for profit for centuries.

Now, with the internet, you can create ANYTHING out of NOTHING AND make a profit. That is what I have b..

Garage is where the magic happens

You can and should judge a man by his garage. No need to get judgmental and compare toys, but you can say a lot about the owner’s character from the way he runs his place – whether it’s clean or dirty, tools and toys in places or around the place and no if the ground is oily or squeaky clean. For me, the garage was always a place of my pride and joy. The whole riding experience was enhanced for me when upon entering the garage I would find  it tidy and items in place before every ride. And aft..
