1 Motorcycle Cell Analogy Loic Rouaud

2 The air filter on a motorcycle is a lot like the cell membrane in organisms. They both let certain things into the cell or engine, while keeping out harmful substances

3 The cytoplasm of a cell is like the motorcycles chassis, or frame. It holds all the bikes components together, and still lets moving parts move.

4 The display and controls of the bike are like the nucleus of the cell. All the important information (to the driver) is displayed and controlled through these devices.

5 The gears and clutch, are like the endoplasmic reticulum, because they take the energy from the engine, and modifiy it according to the engines specific performance needs

6 A cells ribosomes are a lot like the internal wiring of the motorcycle. Ribosomes produce proteins which perform many functions, such as tranffer information and energy. Electrical wiring also transfers energy and information.

7 The nucleolus is like the internal comuter, it contains important information for the bike to function correctly. i.e. Sending firing signals to the spark plugs

8 A cells mitochondria is comparable to a spark plug in a motorcycle. Mitochondria turn food into useable energy. The spark plug is part of a system that turns hydrocarbons into energy for the motorcycle

9 A cells golgi bodies could be compared to a motorcycles chain. The chain transports the energy from the engine to the rear wheel. In a cell, Golgi bodies prepare cell materials for transpotation around the cell.

10 The motorcycles gas tank is like a cells vacuole. It stores gas for the engine to use later. A vacuole performs a similar function, it stores excess cell materials to be used later.
