Cheers, mate!

Kickin' it.

Hot damn.

This thing is near perfection. I can't stop staring.

Totally 90's.

I found these while digging around in my old shit while I was up north last week. Hott!

Winter projects?

Joe picked up these two chop jobs over the summer. Tons of potential if he ever finds time to work on them. Sort of sucks that we live so far away from each other.

Ah, yes.

Be thankful.

Not just today, but everyday. You're sitting in front of your computer reading this, so there's definitely more than a few people out there a lot less fortunate than you and I.

Blue > Gray.

Today was another beautiful day in Motown! I'm heading to the homeland tomorrow for a few days, so I had to squeeze in another ride before I left town. Stay tuned for some random posts of whatever it is I get into up there...

El Burro.

So my dad showed up with one of these things for my brother and I to hurt ourselves on when we were like 10-12ish. I didn't even know what the hell it was until I just saw this old timey ad for it posted on the Deus blog. He bought it from a friend of his and my lil bro and I proceeded to ride the piss out if it for a few years. Once we moved on to bigger and better things, he sold it back to the guy he bought it from. He then had the bike totally restored, shipped it up to Alaska, and rode his daughter up to the altar on it on her wedding day.

It was easily one of the sketchiest toys we ever had. (Close call between this and the Tri-Moto.) You'd get that thing hauling ass down the field at about 30 mph and the thing would start to speed shake like crazy. We had a bunch of huge water/mud holes in our woods that we would hit at top speed to see if we could power thru them w/o eating shit. Thing was insane! I'm still amazed that my brother and I aren't retarded, paralyzed, or dead from the shit my dad brought home for us to play with...

Roller Derby!

The '10-'11 Season opener was a blowout! The D-Funk Allstars put it to the Devils Night Dames 191-49. The bouts are at Cobo Hall this season, so there's a better chance to get tickets than ever before. They're all double-headers too! The next bout is December 18th and it'll have D-Funk facing off against the Pistoffs, and the Pistolwhippers against the newly formed expansion team known as the Grand Prix Madonnas.

Not just rumors anymore...

I'm sure most of the regulars here don't give a damn, but this is big news for the select few who've been waiting for this. (I'm not one of them.) The Triumph Trophy is back! The rumors have been swiling for years, but this is the first most of us have actually seen a real test mule. More info over at MCN

Do your part, ladies.

Finished up a carb rebuild on this thing tonight, then proceeded to have WAY too much fun test riding it.

More Tiger 800 news.

So I posted this photo back on February 24th, the bike's were officially released last week, and now it looks like we finallt have pricing on the Tiger 800's and 800 XC's. The non ABS 800 will have an MSRP of $9999 and the ABS equipped XC will go for $11799. That makes the base MSRP just over $1400 less than the BMW F800GS. Niiiice!

I'll take an XC in any color please.
