Thunderdrome! is tomorrow.

I got some shakedown miles on the scoot, and it's good to go! Racing starts at noon. I have no clue what time I'll be racing, so just show up at noonish and make a day of it! For those of you that can't make it, I'll be posting live updates here throughout the day.

Time for it to go...

I've been watching these old tanks go on eBay for more money than I make in a month, and this thing doesn't do me a damn bit of good collecting dust. So, it'll be on there later today...

For those of you that haven't seen it before, yes, that is a dude munching a chicks box under the big tree...

Perfect finishing piece for that period chop you're building. $20 each. Holler at me if you're interested. bloodfalcons at gmail dot com.

I approve this message.

It's arrived.


Ohlins TTX rear shock. Ohlins front internals. Brembo mono-block calipers and master. Electronic quick shift.

All for about $1500 more than a normal Daytona.

Another great day! Rode all afternoon with Diesel before he had family time, at which point I slabbed it down to the Speedcult compound for leftovers.

Routine maintenance.

Diesel doing his best zombie jesus impression.


Speedcult gifts.

GTS 1000.

When Yamaha unleashed this this thing back in '93, not many people could wrap their head around it. EFI, ABS, and a catalytic converter on a motorcycle!? The RADD front end topped off the confusion.

I met a dude a few years ago at mid-ohio vintage days that has put over 100,000 miles on two of these things.

PJ is over on the Kzoo side of the mitten right now and came across these ol' girls in a parking lot full of twin cam junk.

The daily grind...

Geared up.

A sincere thank you goes out to my friends in Portland for the excellent care package I received yesterday! I'm one step closer to thunderdrome glory. It'll come in handy for supermoto track days too I'm sure!

Hack Job.

Looks like it could be fun...

Dirty Girl.

I just found a folder on my 'puter with some neat photos. No idea who/where I stole them from...

Shred the gnar!

More of this awesome over on derestricted. Go there!!!

365 have passed...

RIP Guru.

Same shit, different year.


Trying to talk Joe into coming down from the U.P. with his RV90, Vino, and maybe even a Spree for the Thunderdrome festivities.

Thunderdrome is back!

If you're new and don't know the deets, click here to get in the know, or just watch this video from last year and you'll get a pretty good idea of what it's all about...

Anywho, I'll be competing in the scooter class with this bad mutha. Whatchu know bout 50cc's of water cooled fuel injected italian fury? Yeah, thought so.

It just came out of cold storage today, so stay tuned for updates and what not. Race #1 is April 30th.


Freedom Eggs.

There's still quite a few people out there that think Harley's come from a factory in PA... That couldn't be further from the truth. There's actually a flock of retarded eagles that fly around and lay these eggs in your air box and, boom, a new bike is born! The flamed out one will grow up to be a Screamin' Eagle Fat Bob, the freedom one is a Road Glide Ultra, and I can't tell if the other one is a Sporty Superlow or Street Glide trike.

Industry Function(s).

Head to Indy on Saturday for Rockers Reunion, then slab it down to Nashville for this shindig on Sunday. Any of you out in the blogosphere gonna be @ either one?

Low Rider.

Another one from Nice. Dig those shocks.

This just in!

My mom just sent this to me from the U.P... Mother nature needs to fuck off already. No snow in the D, but the 30 mph winds are pretty lame.

Husky SMR 510.

by Krugger. Now with knobbies!


Go there. Have a look around. You won't be disappointed.


I vividly remember listening to "at San Quentin" on LP after sauna when I was just a wee lad...

'41 EL.

Another killer build from the boys at Nice! Motorcycle.

Who needs a Sporty?

Brett has his ride for sale. 883R with the 1250 kit installed. Thing screams. It's in Kansas City, MO. $7k.

Last night.

Just chillin' out talking about the good old days...

Biker Babes.

That's Dot Robinson on the right. Co-founder of the motor maids, owned Downtown Harley Davidson (Detroit) with her hubby, Earl, rode 1.5 million miles, and kicked major ass on dirt moto's. More info on her and how badass she was can be found here.

Season 2.

Be on the look out.

Taint Splitter - XS 650.

Ry showed up in Depot Town last night aboard his latest build, the Taint Splitter. You may have already seen it on the ZON... That dude always seems to be at the same parties I am!

Ry seems to have at least 5 different builds going on at all times, so you never know what he'll show up on. He's also been doing a lot of work for friends that looks friggin' killer.

You can see some of his work here on his blog.
