INCREDIBLE BIKERNET WEEKLY NEWS for August 17, 2017

By | General Posts | No Comments


Hey,

I’m sorta lost today. We are still unwinding from the Sturgis run and dealing with the aftermath. We fixed something wrong with the Shovelhead and need to address a couple more issues.

My Factory Racer is still in Vegas until Las Vegas Bike Fest. I’m on the search for a new pickup. Car dealerships are very strange places now.

We started to work on Franky’s Dyna right away. He’s anxious to ride it. We just need to hook up the wiring and install the sheet metal. We need to install the new LowBrow taillight and a few other details. He needs a seat and we need to haul his bike to a dealer for the security code to be reset.

The list goes on and folks are already talking about Sturgis for next year. We might be involved with a Trike Show sponsored by Bikernet Trikes and Iron Trader News. Let’s hit the news.

 

Click here for this week’s news, we have some from Australia, Sturgis, Texas, Paughco, S&S, Lowbrow, BIKERS CHOICE, Memphis Shades, MRF, AMA, S&S Cycle, martin moto, Hells Angels, Loretta Lynn Ranch, Tennessee Motorcycles and Music Revival, Metalsport, INDIAN, Bonneville Speed Week and mo’.

Somewhere Else Tomorrow Wins Best Feature Film Award in Tokyo

By | General Posts | No Comments

Somewhere Else Tomorrow won the “Best Feature Film Award” at the Tokyo Motorcycle Film Festival since it began streaming on Dream Racer TV.

Somewhere Else Tomorrow is the story of a naive dreamer, fearing stagnation and worried about getting tangled up in a boring job out of university, attempts the greatest challenge Daniel Rintz can think of: traveling around the world on a motorcycle – without money. Instead of wasting precious time saving up for the trip, he hastily decides to make money along the way picking up random jobs – an idea that makes his journey much more challenging and dangerous than he intended. There was no support team, no film-crew, and no budget to buy his way out of tight situations. Out of the hardship he encounters trying to survive comes a story of true freedom and global understanding.

Harley-Davidson encourages everyone on two wheels to ride. Ride wherever you want to and ride as often as humanly possible. And those of you who don’t, you have to start somewhere. And that somewhere can start with us. Riding gives you the freedom that you can’t find anywhere else. So rise up and roll with us. There’s no greater feeling in the world.

 

New Logo For Next Year’s 78th Sturgis Motorcycle Rally

By | General Posts | No Comments

The 77th Sturgis Motorcycle Rally featured over a half a million riders this year. As stewards of the Sturgis brand, the volunteer board of SMRi feel a strong responsibility to help promote, grow and strengthen the Sturgis brand overall, which is why they used the 77th Anniversary as an opportunity to unveil the official Sturgis branded logo for next year’s 78th.

“Our long term vision is the Sturgis institution,” said Sturgis Mayor Mark Carstensen. “So while the 77th rally was a heck of a good time, it’s just the one rally. That’s why we unveil the 78th logo with as much excitement and celebration as we did for the 75th, 76th and 77th. It’s about the totality of the Sturgis legacy.”

The unveiling of the logo took place on Main Street in downtown Sturgis, SD, at the East Photo Tower. Mayor Mark Carstensen presided over the ceremony. The presentation of the new logo marks the beginning of the Sturgis preparation cycle, which continues throughout the year until next August. With legendary roots in the Black Hills, the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally is the world’s largest, and SMRi board members feel an acute responsibility to the people of Sturgis and the surrounding area.

“SMRi was founded for two reasons: to promote economic progress in the Black Hills region and to use proceeds from sales of official licensed merchandise to return money to the Sturgis community via charitable donations,” said SMRi Board Member and City of Sturgis Councilman Rod Bradley. “SMRi’s responsibility is to continue advocating for and developing the Sturgis brand so the people in the Sturgis community can flourish and realize returns from the world’s largest motorcycling phenomenon. That’s why we were ready with the 78th logo, and that’s why we’ll work as hard as we can to make the 78th Sturgis Motorcycle Rally the best one yet.”

Rewaco Trikes USA : Thrilling Threesome

By | General Posts | No Comments

I have seen the future of Trikes in America and it is called REWACO. Incredible trikes and a pro-range of models with the bonus benefits of customization, comfort, ready-to-tour, financing and eye-candy.

This German company is not big on media or magazines, but I want to change that, expose them and showcase their genius to one and all. Writing this Feature Article on Rewaco Trikes on Bikernet almost feels like deflowering a virgin, because I don’t know why this is not a huge brand name in the custom industry of USA.

Riding Gear Review —Harley-Davidsons Women’s Miss Enthusiast Triple Vent Leather Jacket

By | General Posts | No Comments

Sometimes you just get everything right. As a career moto journalist, I can usually find fault pretty quickly, especially when it comes to jackets. I whine about venting, lack of pockets, shoddy construction, poor fit or lackluster appearance. When I pulled Harley-Davidson’s Miss Enthusiasts Triple-Vent Leather Jacket out of the box and fitted my lovely test pilot, we immediately knew something magical was happening.
