 Wednesday October 11, 2017 (Hurricane Mills, TN) The Tennessee Motorcycles and Music Revival throttled into Hurricane Mills, TN September 28 -October 1, for it’s inaugural year and delivered an event of top quality production, with a grass roots southern hospitality feel. Guests are saying this was a “class act event” revolving around all things motorcycle, music and camping.
The event hosted motorcycle riders of all makes and models at one of the most storied and beautiful ranches in the great state of Tennessee, Loretta Lynn’s Ranch.
Attendees enjoyed live music at multiple locations within the ranch including top acts such as; Ben Haggard, the youngest son of late country music legend, Merle Haggard, legendary John Anderson, who kicked off the first night by performing some of his top hits from the more than 40 singles he’s charted over his 30 year career. Also performing was Tim Montana, who spent the past year touring with ZZ Top and Kid Rock. Last spring, Tim’s collaboration song with Billy Gibbons “This Beard Came Here to Party,” became a soundtrack to the Nashville Predators’ NHL Stanley Cup run. Taking the stage on Saturday night was Jared Blake, a motorcyclist himself, who performs at rallies across the country, a wider audience knew him as a contestant on the first season of The Voice, reaching top 4 on Blake Shelton‘s team.

Hey,

We’re living through strange times.Give me your thoughts on the following. Here’s what the Wayfarer said, “Leave Trump alone. Forget climate change. Just focus on cool builds and new technology. Get the politics out of the coverage on the website. It is like one drop of bacteria that makes the whole bucket of water un-digestable.”

He can be a tad harsh, but I got it. Then I received the Bill Bish monthly legislative report. Could we go a month and not fight for freedom and just pretend we live in Disneyland. It’s tough to do, although I suppose some magazines do it. Let me know your thoughts, good or bad.

Knucklehead Chopper Love

Deny Babin grew up in Philly but came to California, after he fell in love with motorcycles and a girl. Deny is an interesting talent, who started to paint when he discussed his first bike, a 1988 Sporty, sheet metal paint job, with a pro about 10 years ago. Let’s see if I can keep this story straight.

Philadelphia is the largest city in Pennsylvania at 1.5 million population. Deny grew up on the cold streets banging heads with the concrete, but in his late 20s he discovered two wheels and the freedom they injected into his life, cutting across harried city streets like a taut wire threw cheese.

BIKETOBERFEST BIKERNET WEEKLY NEWS for October 19, 2017

By | General Posts | No Comments

Hey,

It’s Biketoberfest Weekend in Daytona. I constantly have discussions with folks about the industry. Some folks are crying and others are jumping up and down. It’s confusing as hell, but more motorcyclists and events are coming on line daily. Maybe that’s good and maybe it cuts the pie in too many directions.

There are more builders than ever before. At one time, I knew most of the builders in the world, now I don’t. I will start my Las Vegas story next week. I thought Las Vegas kicked ass even after the terrible shooting.

I tried to reach out to Jim Betlach, who is working with Shelly Rosemeyer of Daytona Harley on the lot across the street and he was too busy to chat. I hope that’s a great sign that Biketoberfest is cooking.

And every year the Tropical Tattoo Bike Show sponsored by Bikernet and Cycle Source gets bigger. Don’t miss it.

By | General Posts | No Comments

Harley-Davidson rider Ed Krawiec stretched his Pro Stock Motorcycle points lead in the NHRA Mello Yello Countdown to the Championship playoffs with a final-round win at the AAA Texas NHRA FallNationals at the Texas Motorplex. Krawiec rode a Harley-Davidson Street Rod competition motorcycle to his sixth win of the season and now holds a 107-point Countdown points lead.

“This was a perfect weekend for our championship run,” said Krawiec, a three-time Pro Stock Motorcycle champion who last won the title in 2012. “My closest competitor lost in the first round, so for me every win after the first was a bonus, and to race the Street Rod all the way to a win in the final is huge. I like our position with a commanding points lead and two races left on the schedule. Now the pressure is on anyone trying to catch us.”

Krawiec led all qualifiers for the event with a best elapsed time (ET) of 6.860 seconds at 196.53 mph. Harley-Davidson® Screamin’ Eagle®/Vance & Hines rider Andrew Hines qualified third on the team’s other Harley-Davidson Street Rod competition motorcycle with a 6.878 ET at 195.87 mph.

In Sunday eliminations Hines won in the first round but lost in round two. Krawiec charged through the field to advance to his seventh final round of the season. Krawiec got the 42nd win of his career when his opponent fouled at the starting line. With a 6.785-second blast in round two Krawiec posted the quickest Pro Stock Motorcycle ET of the day and the fastest top speed at 196.50 mph.

After four of six rounds in the 2017 NHRA Mello Yello Countdown to the Championship playoffs, Krawiec leads the Pro Stock Motorcycle standings with 2,506 points. Hines is in third place with 2,364 points.

The Harley-Davidson® Screamin’ Eagle®/Vance & Hines Pro Stock Motorcycle drag racing team returns to action October 25-28 at the NHRA Toyota Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in Las Vegas, Nevada.
