Knowledge, understanding, the Way, and technology: They are all flying at us fast. Hell, I don’t know where to start. Awhile back I mentioned business owners and their constant challenges, from the government, technology, competition and the market. Those challenges are more daunting than ever before and more beneficial in many respects.
Personal life is also being bombarded with new and beneficial challenges. I was hit with a hot handful of thought-provoking opportunities and philosophies this week.

5-Ball Leathers’ leather accents utilize Buffalo leather due to its excellent resistance to abrasion and wind. We honor those road warriors of the past with top-quality motorcycle gear.
We created a line of 5-Ball Jackets, vests and Jak Shirts for tough environments with industrial-strength construction. Whether you are heading to Sturgis or cross town in a rainstorm, our 5-Ball leather delivers comfort, security and good looks.
Life is so interesting. Always remember two masterful quotes from folks on a much higher pay grade level than my humble self:
“Everything will be all right in the end. If it’s not all right, it’s not the end.”
“Think your absolute worst thought. Then take a breath and ponder the fact: It was just a thought.”

Making progress is a major motivator. I like to climb out of bed thinking the day is going to be exciting. This week I solved some issues, took my 1928 Shovelhead to Larry Settle for a look-over. We organized and shipped Hugh King’s Discovery Channel biker build-off bike to the Sturgis Museum.
We attempted to get two girders from Spitfire Motorcycles. We scored a few Antiques motorcycle parts from Bobby Stark’s lot.
I solved a minor issue with the Salt Torpedo and we are just a couple of weeks away from our first trial runs. I roughed out another Cantina Chapter.

I’m working on Cantina Episode number 88 right now. Tons of content is archived every week.
A couple of infrastructure changes. From now on, we will post the news on the Free side of the Bikernet Iron Curtain for one week each week. We will also do the same with selected articles before slipping them into Bandit’s Cantina archives for our esteemed members.
We need members, but I want the largest readership to check the news. We also need to inform the largest possible audience of the issues facing motorcycling and of happenings on Bikernet. So, what the fuck, I’m giving it a shot.
Let’s hit the news. It’s going to be a good one:
