Odd Bikernet Weekly News for April 16th, 2020

By | General Posts

This Is Supposed to Be Our Kick-Off to Our Roaring ’20s

Hey,

It’s been an odd week. Remember, this is supposed to be the kick-off to our Roaring ‘20s and now we’re locked down. Plus, the Governor of California said recently about opening that everything will change in the future. No more major sporting events, etc.

What about dances and parties, will we all wear masks? Tough to smoke a joint or take a shot of Jack with a mask on? WTF, over.

Here’s another odd one. This Pandemic bows well for individual transportation, like cars and motorcycles. All those folks who want us out of our cars and stuffed into electric subways or busses are going to need to rethink their plans.

Let’s hit the news and see what else floats to the surface. At the end I’ll report on all the shop projects and the kick-off to another Chance Hogan book.

Covid Alerts Bikernet Weekly News for March 19th, 2020

By | General Posts

Hey,

Are we living through some strange times or what? This is one of those tests and we won’t know the answers until it’s over.

It’s sorta like a final at the Bikernet medical school. You could check Covid Measures too reactionary and costly and be wrong or visa versa. Let’s just hope at the end of the flu season, we can laugh and say it wasn’t a big deal.

Bikernet isn’t shutting down or curbing operations.

I’m working around the clock with a couple of contractors in Deadwood to dial in the Badlands Bikernet headquarters for the rally. Sin Wu and the Redhead are approving the Chinese whorehouse décor.

Dr. Hamster and Mike Stevenson delivered the Doctor’s Panhead project back to the headquarters, and I will start the finishing touches on it tomorrow to get the sheet metal to Deny for paint and prep this bike for the trip to Deadwood and the rally.

Let’s get to the news and at the end I’ll attempt to explain the other items on the Bikernet To-Do list for this year. Hang On!

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.

Sam ‘Chopper’ Orwell by K. Randall Ball

Fast-action fiction on two wheels! What does the future hold for rough and ready bikers? Discover how society eliminates motorcycles. Hold on as Sam “Chopper” Orwell fights to find freedom for the last remaining riders!

BANDIT’S CANTINA BAD JOKE LIBRARY-– Since it was such a crappy day, I sat in my recliner and started thinking about life. I came to realize that as I have grown older I’ve learned that pleasing everyone is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.

Condoms don’t guarantee safe sex anymore, a friend of mine was wearing one when he was shot by the woman’s husband.

WHAT A DAY !!!!!!!!!!!!

Cantina Episode 89: Wim Says Goodbye

By | General Posts

She Was Coming for the Cantina

A lucky junk captain could make as much money painting the hull of a ship as he could pulling alongside a departing vessel while the crew tossed their un-used coins to his children below holding their grass-weaved, pointed hats upside down.

Bandit crossed new railroad tracks. The port told the city new tracks would lower truck traffic, but it would take years and tons of government intervention and regulations to get the job done. In the meantime, they allowed trucks to fill the streets 24/7, as the numbers of container shipments increased daily.

Hey,

I’m going to start to promote my books. Hell, I wrote the bastards and sold out of the first two, then I wrote a few more, but never promoted them. If you haven’t read them, check them out, they’re cheap, and I would love to write another one, based in Deadwood, SD. Unfortunately, I need to sell a few of these bastards to make the whole agonizing process worthwhile.

Chapter III Excerpt

The coffin hit the hard earth, split, and dumped Sam onto the ground. He gasped for air. The bright sun seared his clamped eyelids. He was covered with sweat and his body reeked from the confined, three-hour trek into the mountains.

Sam rolled over and pulled himself onto all fours, his lungs drawing in the hot air. Several men and a couple of women, their faces weathered from months in the desert, surrounded him. One raised a large, galvanized bucket and dumped several gallons of lukewarm water on Sam’s limp torso. His longtime friend and riding partner, Red, kneeled at his side and held him from trying to respond to the watery assault. – See more here in the Cantina – Subscribe Today.
