Nick Sanders after we were pulled over for speeding in a small town in PA.
Elspeth Beard is one of a select band of bold women to ride a motorcycle and bicycle around the world, and she was the first Englishwoman to do so. She achieved this feat a quarter of a century ago, in the days before sat-nav, internet, email and mobile phones. I had the opportunity to ride with her and Nick Sanders Back in 2005 in North America for a bit. Patrick, one of our fellow B'falcs, and Elspeth are cousins. Patrick ran the support systems for a globe excursion back in 2004, and helped out again in 2005 with the North American portion. Great people and great riding.

Monkey bikes, the 50cc Z series mini bikes, are pretty popular in some euro countries. Some fans of the little feller engineer very nutty modifications, like this 125cc inline 4 cylinder engine for instance. It’s so small it looks like a model but it’s a real engine and sounds killah.
This is a new British motorcycle company who is putting a crapass Buell Blast power plant into a newly refined streetfighter. What a waste of a choice design. They were probably able to acquire the motors for two slaps across the mouth because not even a jabronie is willing to buy a pile of powerless Chinese made crapola with a USA tag on it. Enjoy. -Urbanek

I've always been a fan of Lee back in my skateboarding days, and I still appreciate his enthusiasm for photography and motorbikes. Cheers JL. Badass Falcon Umph.
Chris Barber fabbed this DesmoHarley, his own unique Harley Davidson engine with Ducati heads, and it is a beauty. it’s the kind of thing that gets a petrolhead all twitchy just looking at it.

Here's a must have product to simultaneously camouflage your trash-heap garage and annoy your neighbors — "Style Your Garage." Printed tarps to wrap over the garage door with stuff like Ferraris and SR-71 Blackbirds on them.
Attached to the garage with industrial velcro, the product comes in a wide array of designs ranging from a C2 Corvette to a steam locomotive and even comes in two- and three-bay designs featuring a dump truck and a hangar-ed commercial jetliner.

The demo truck is @ Triumph Detroit this weekend, and they were nice enough to bring the new Thunderbird along for the ride. It's a non runner, but you can touch it all you want. Stop by the shop between now and sunday to see it.
