We live in strange times, but actually it’s all good—sorta.For years we’ve been told the whole safety mantra thing and save the planet, control-freak bullshit. At least someone is shacking the trees and giving freedom a chance.
Without freedom we don’t have anything. It’s all so interesting. But without the ability to question and push for understanding and freedom we might as well lock ourselves in caves and turn out the lights. I don’t know about you, but I’m going to ride free and party till the end.

Machined from billet aluminum, these billet plate holders are available in three configurations: Standard; Cat-Eye on the Side; Cat-eye on the bottom
Heartland offers these signals in their TuxCut finish. TuxCut refers to a contrast cut finish, where parts are coated black before a machine process is applied, resulting in a jeweled contrast look.

Camarillo is a city in Ventura County, California. It’s south of the 101 Freeway and north of Pacific Coast Highway just minutes from entering Malibu along the winding coast. Camarillo is named for Adolfo and Juan Camarillo, two of the few Californios (pre-1848 California natives of Hispanic ancestry) to preserve the city’s heritage after the arrival of Anglo settlers. They had to be boot tough and rattlesnake mean. Settlers took everything from everyone.
For decades Camarillo was a riders paradise between Ventura and Los Angeles and home to one of the mainstays in the Harley aftermarket industry, JIMS Machine. Jim Thiessen built a family owned business around special tools for builders all over the world, to make their Harley mechanical jobs easier and quality transmission parts.

Goin’ thru the motions of getting Onxx ready for the annual pilgrimage to Sturgis has been a major pain in the ass this year. Lots of small things needing fixin’ – antenna (inner fairing) not working = no radio. Cigarette lighter-power for GPS not working, new brake lines, rebuilding front master cylinder, exhaust rubbing on Primary cover, needs new skins, and the list goes on. As usual, I’m just trying to cover the bases for three weeks on the road coming up.
Stunts, bike shows, the Sturgis Rider Superstore and more combine to make the CrossRoads a rally hot spot. Premium accessories and exclusive service perks include free Indian Motorcycle loaners while services are being performed. Read more.
