Great News Bikernet Weekly News for July 16, 2020

By General Posts

It’s all What We Make of It!

Life is amazing.
We’re in the middle of a Pandemic and J&P had their best single day sales record in the history of the company. And now J&P is owned by another company.

Get this, boat sales have gone through the roof. It’s one way a family can play together and not run into nasty crowds. One manufacturer launched their new models way before the end of the year.

Motorcycles have a similar blessing, that’s why Rich is having a banner year at American Biker in Charleston, SC, and Junior, at Lifestyle Cycles in SoCal is kicking ass in Orange County, California. It’s about embracing what’s available. A brother has an event magazine. No events, no business, but that’s not the case. He’s going to start covering underground events. He’s also going to interview big event promoters about their struggle and what they need.

Hell, Scott Jacobs was making bank on Cruise line art auctions. That’s gone for now, but Scott, Sharon and their daughters opened a brewery restaurant and bakery in Deadwood and they are kicking ass. There doesn’t seem to be any Covid around here. It’s amazing.

Cruise ships don’t need to set idle. Hell, one cruise ship could hold three separated conventions at the same time and stay in dock. Safety measures on one of those massive ships could be a breeze because of the compartments. Everything would be completely contained.

But riding is the best. Feel free, in the wind and social distancing is not a problem at 90mph.

Let’s hit the news:

Book by Bob Bitchin, Review by Rogue

I was thinking about all of you on Quarantine and how much I think you would enjoy reading this book by my friend Bob Bitchin. I will tell you ahead of time, it is an ADULT PUBLICATION and if you are offended by Sex, Drugs, or Rock and Roll it is probably not for you.

  • 2 chest pockets
  • 2 waist pockets

Ride with confidence – Ever put your phone in your jacket pocket only to have it fall out when you sit down? We have. That’s why our Jak Shirt waist pockets are 11 inches long. Both waist outside pockets accommodates your keys, phone, garage door opener, beverage or anything else you need to secure.

The outside waist pockets are deep pockets

Standout features of this killer Jack Shirt line are double-needle seam construction, leather neck trim and two inner conceal-carry pockets for those “safety first” moments.

Due to its excellent resistance to abrasion and wind, leather found a use in rugged occupations. The enduring image of a cowboy in leather chaps gave way to the leather-jacketed and leather-helmeted aviator.

When motorcycles were invented, some riders took to wearing heavy leather jackets to protect from road rash and wind blast; some also wear chaps or full leather pants to protect the lower body. Top-quality motorcycle leather is superior to any practical man-made fabric for abrasion protection and is still used in racing.

Leather is a durable and flexible material. It provides safety on and off the bike. When not used, the 5-Ball Buffalo-constructed Jak Shirt 5/8th Sleeve can be rolled up and stored and then redeployed when needed.


The Flat Out Vest Adjustment

By General Posts

When you’re into riding flat out, you need to be willing and capable to make adjustments. We decided to give our cool Flat Out Vest several snappy upgrades based on road testing.

This puppy will now be our classic leather vest with just the right design and upgrades.

I got tired of the preacher collar messing with shirts and hoodies, so we removed it and trimmed the collar and arm holes in leather. The back will have the classic western cut trim and the waist band with return on this vest.

Of course, it will contain all of our exclusive gun pockets and the too cool media pocket in the back.

These puppies will be in stock shortly. Order a Flat Out and receive the new model. Or check out any of our other cool vests, jackets and we now have the perfect Racy women’s jacket and the women’s light Pit Crew Vest.


You always get bling and a signed book with your leather order.

Terry the Tramp by K. Randall Ball
The life and dangerous times of a 1% Club President, Terry the Tramp

Get your Signed Copy By Keith Randall Ball – CLICK HERE

There’s crime, drugs, sex, random violence, death aplenty. The core subject of this book is freedom.

Some folks find their way to the bright white side of the tracks, but there’s a small percentage who run through the dark alleys of life. Even a smaller portion of those survive. Terry “the Tramp,” born in 1947 to a broken middle-class home in Alhambra, California, grew up with a violent chip on his shoulder. Terry became the international president of one of the most notorious one-percenter motorcycle clubs in southern California, the Vagos MC, and remained in office through upheaval, indictments, drugs, and gang wars for 26 years, until he was unceremoniously extricated. He is still a member after 42 years and never went to prison until 2010.

World Run by K. Randall Ball

This wild romantic adventure is the second Chance Hogan novel by K. Randall Ball. He never gets it right, with women, but he keeps trying. Hang on for World Run, the ride of a lifetime.

CLICK HERE to check it out

The story picks up shortly after the previous story ends. Even though this tale can stand on its own I would recommend reading Harbor Town. Seduction first as it sets up this book nicely.

World Run finds our hero, Chance Hogan, down and out in the women department only to fall in lust and subsequently in love with a local Asian beauty. This love affair propels Chance into an adventure where he has to count on old friends and new to sort out the cause for events which lead him on a wild journey around the world.
