Bandit is still out of the country. Literally on the other side of the world soaking in their summer weather. I am not sure about you but I have been working my ass off, I always try to be that way. I try to squeeze every bit of work, love, freedom, joy and fun out of every single day. I am EXHAUSTED. Don’t take this the wrong way, but… I hope you’re exhausted too. Because that means you’re licking the plate clean and getting every morsel. That’s what I’m doing. Hang on for news on Bandit.

This week we have news from Kuryakyn, Yamaha, Harley Davidson, The Sturgis Museum, and Buffalo Chip, new products, really bad jokes, cute girls and updates on the boss in New Zealand.

Kuryakyn’s New Finned Collection Is Here.

By | General Posts

The new Finned collection from Kuryakyn® echoes the classic era of custom culture where simplicity and minimalism held sway on the streets. The complete line of covers and accents delivers a clean, old school aesthetic to areas of the engine, outer primary, and transmission, among others.

Available for a wide variety of Harley-Davidson® Twin Cam® and Milwaukee-Eight® models, the Finned collection is designed to easily alter stock styling in a matter of minutes. The lineup includes groups of components that give end users the freedom of targeting one or more specific areas to customize.

Focus areas include the outer primary where Finned Derby Covers can be combined with assorted model-specific primary accents to completely transform the stock appearance. Other components include Finned Timing Covers, Spark Plug Covers, Transmission and Starter Accents, as well as Passenger Floorboard Covers.

All Finned components are cast from quality A380 aluminum with raised horizontal lines that mimic the traditional cylinder fins for a uniform look throughout. Finish options include polished chrome, or satin black with machined fins for a contrasting raw metal appearance.

Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show 2018 – OHIO SHOW

By | General Posts


The last few years Cleveland Ohio has greeted the hardy motorcycle enthusiast with snow, slush and sub-zero weather. This year the weather gods provided a 3-day reprieve and provided a balmy 50 degrees so motorcyclists attending the Progressive International Motorcycle Show stepped a little lighter and smiled a little brighter.

The J&P Cycles Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show produced a record number of custom sleds with 46 bikes and builders showcasing their creativity and innovation. Young guns were aligned and competed against the old guard and the young builders ran the table.

SUPER BOWL SUNDAY POST for February 4, 2018

By | General Posts



It’s that day. Guys are setting up at the David Mann Chopper Fest. Some of the brothers rode to Ventura to party in the streets last night.

Someone showed me a bag of magic mushrooms and I ran the opposite direction. Some of us are trying to get out to the tattoo exhibit at the Natural History Museum this week.

I’m going to roll over to Zach and Susy’s for a Super Bowl party in Long Beach. Zack always has new projects to review either motorcycle or around his building.

I started to apply clay to my charity sculpture and it didn’t go well. The clay shrinks as it dries, and separates from the metal. I need to investigate.

Damn, this is going to be an exciting year.

Let’s hit the news.
