The Knuckle Saloon is up for sale

By | General Posts

 

STURGIS, S.D. (KOTA TV) – The Knuckle Saloon has been in Sturgis for nearly 20 years. Last month the owners decided it was time for a new venture, and put the downtown business on the market.

The Knuckle’s five partners are now opening a new brewery, Sturgis Brewing Company, later this year.

The building on Lazelle Street is 2,800 square feet, with retail and brewing capabilities.

The current owners hope whoever buys the building will continue the legacy and they are excited to bring a new business to Sturgis.

“That’ll take the Sturgis name out and they’ll be distributing all over. That’ll just help the rally; it will help the town, and it will provide jobs and economic impact too,” says Dan Martin, the realtor for The Knuckle Saloon.

The Knuckle Saloon is selling for $6.2 million.

PROMOTIONAL BIKERNET WEEKLY NEWS–It’s Happening Now

By | General Posts

 

The News incredible, if I don’t say so myself. Sure, we promoted the new Long Road Bedroll, the 5-Ball Racing Sponsorship program and Hal Robinson art, but what the hell. We need to pay the taxes to house the homeless in Los Angeles, and the DWP, because our welder is buzzing constantly on the Salt Torpedo.

I say the news is amazing because of so much more than just the promotional stuff. The legislative action is flying, good and bad. And all the efforts to make motorcycling more attractive and accessible are growing, while some countries want to ban us. It’s nuts and exciting. I even was able to finish a freedom-based motorcycle screenplay recently. You’ll see it mentioned. If produced, it would go a long way toward making biking exciting again.

Check out the news, if you get a chance. Chance of a lifetime.

We are making amazing progress on the Salt Torpedo. We now have a solid team and will be up on three wheels this week, with what appears to be the first Streamlined Trike.

 

We need to raise enough money to make the run to Bonneville, pay for registration, hotels, beer and a trailer to haul our creation to Wendover, Nevada/Utah.

We dare to keep dreaming. If you’d like to help out, check out our Sponsorship story.

LONG ROAD BEDROLL comes to 5-Ball Racing Garage

By | General Posts

The Long Road Bedroll was conceived and designed by the Commander of the annual SmokeOut, the most rowdy event on the planet. I have ridden the Long Road to the SmokeOut several times with Edge, the mastermind. I know about the grassy knolls, the rained on fields and the shared motel rooms. Edge experienced them all for 20 years straight, so when he decided to create this product, he had good reasons. Read his story. Click the link below.–Bandit

ANOTHER LATE–Bandit’s Cantina Weekend Round-up

By | General Posts

But it was a good one, with reports about our Bonneville effort and then a startling announcement. J.J. Solari is trying to interview the President for Bikernet. Hang on! Did I really say that?

J.J. has been around the block for awhile and you just never know what might come of his efforts. Here’s just a teaser from his letter to the the President:

Dear Donald Trump; Have you noticed you never get asked actually-interesting questions? That’s because you are only interviewed by boring, agenda-driven commie asshole miserable losers

Bikernet,com is a very professional pro-America, pro-Trump, pro-flag, pro-National Anthem, pro Pledge of Allegiance….capitalist enterprise. Manned by normal people. I know what you’re saying: “Didn’t Keith Ball the owner of Bikernet.com once edit Easyriders Magazine when it started? And you’re saying he’s normal?” I am standing by my statement.

If you want to read the whole tamale don’t miss the Weekend Round-Up in the Cantina. You’ll be blown away. Hope we don’t get in trouble with the President –Bandit

Green Raw Deal: Big Bowl of Crazy – ‘Global warming’ is merely the latest environmental scare with the same solutions of wealth redistribution and central planning

By | General Posts

By Marc Morano

Climate Depot.com

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ “Green New Deal” is taking shape. See: OCASIO-CORTEZ: FIXING ‘GLOBAL WARMING’ REQUIRES ‘MASSIVE GOVERNMENT INTERVENTION’ & Green New Deal” will bring “a massive transformation of our society.”

‘GREEN NEW DEAL’ SEEKS TO OUTLAW GAS-POWERED VEHICLES AND GASSY COWS

By | General Posts

In very broad strokes, the Green New Deal legislation laid out by Congressional Democrats sets goals for some drastic measures to cut carbon emissions across the economy, from electricity generation to transportation to agriculture.

 

The nonbinding resolution calls for “10-year national mobilizations” toward accomplishing a series of objectives that the legislation lays out.  Among the most prominent, the deal calls for “meeting 100 percent of the power demand in the United States through clean, renewable, and zero-emission energy sources.”  The ultimate goal is to eliminate fossil fuels, shifting away from oil, coal and nuclear power, in favor of eco-friendly energy such as wind and solar power.

 

The Green New Deal calls for “replacing non-essential individual means of transport with high-quality and modern mass transit,” which is a flowery way of calling for a ban on gas-powered passenger cars, trucks and motorcycles, as well as airplanes.

 

According to the legislation, within the decade;

– Achieve a net-zero carbon economy with 100% clean renewable energy

– Eliminate internal combustion engines and expand electric car manufacturing

– Overhaul transportation systems and make air travel obsolete by expanding high-speed rail

– Retrofit all existing buildings for energy efficiency

– Work with farmers “to eliminate pollution and greenhouse gas emissions” such as cow farts

– “Economic security” for all, including higher education, jobs, wages, housing and health care

 

In short, the legislative framework combines climate-change-related ideas with a “dream” list of progressive economic proposals that would affect every American and overhaul the U.S. economy, all at an initial estimated cost of up to $6.6 trillion a year over the decade.

 

Unfortunately for Cortez the man-made aspect of Climate Change is the largest hoax ever perpetuated on the American people. Watch for Bill’s full Legislative report later today on Bikernet. It’s nuts.–Bandit
