The Crazy Bikernet Weekly News for June 10th, 2021

By General Posts

Life is Nuts, So Let’s Party

We are about to publish a story about the motorcycle boom during the Covid era. It’s interesting how our industry flourished when the world was shut down.

I’m about to finish a Life and Times piece about our move to the Badlands. I’m hoping it will help others, who are grappling with similar decisions. It was a stressful challenge but well worth every box of crap we hauled out here.

I’m working on a Cantina Episode, a few bike features, and a girls of bikernet feature.

In the meantime, ride free forever!

Summer Kick-off Bikernet Weekly News for June 3, 2021

By General Posts

The Sun is Out and We’re Riding

Hey,

I wish I knew what to say today. My feeble mind is packed with thoughts and new experiences since landing lock-stock and barrel in the Badlands. On Memorial Day, I rode with Woody and about 20 riders to the scene of one of the last Indian battles. We found out where the name Buffalo Chip came from, Jonathan “Buffalo Chip” White.

We rode north on the 79 past Mike Ballard’s biker home, I believe passed Sugar Bear’s Chopperville, Hoover and stopped at a magnificently built western bar.

Let’s hit the news, I’m getting hitched today and need to finish early.

Let’s ride fast and free forever,

Memorial Day Bikernet Weekly News for May 27th, 2021

By General Posts

Hey,

Are things calming down or heating up. I had lots of dreams about Bonneville last night. Hopefully haul bikes will deliver the Salt Torpedo to the Badlands soon.

I tell young guys that building bikes is an investment. Buying and restoring antique bikes can work out well. The adage, “All eggs in one basket,” is a good one. Ya need to diversify. But do what’s comfortable for you, but just do something goddammit.

Have a hell of a Memorial Day and remember those who died for freedom.

New Beginnings Bikernet Weekly News for May 20, 2021

By General Posts

Hey,

This is a momentous day in the Badlands.

Bandit and the Redhead have escaped to the Badlands. This effort was a mixture of organization, money, stress, and perseverance. Someone said I should write a story about the move. At the time, the thought of it terrified me, but I suppose I’m getting to the point… I needed to finish the job first. I will mention one item that was paramount: Coordination.

You could do us a major big favor and share the news with anyone and everyone. We work hard on the news every week and I believe it covers motorcycle related news and freedom news worldwide. You could help a lot, by grabbing the link and sharing it with the world.

Hang on for more reports, and keep freedom alive, forever.
