Perfect Bikernet Weekly News for July 18th, 2019

By | General Posts

What an interesting week. We are scrambling with the Salt Torpedo. I trying to outfit the new Bikernet Salt Flats Van for the trip to Bonneville. I’ve been in touch with various Easyriders contributors and now ex-staff members regarding the future.

A few of us have been super-lucky to make a living in the motorcycle industry. Even tougher, I’ve been having a blast in the Chopper industry most of my life. It’s not about the money, obviously, it’s about sex.

What could be sexier than to bang around choppers, metalflake paint, sultry art and girls all your life. What could be better.

Otherwise, this week has been amazingly positive with cool resources surfacing for the Torpedo. We’ve about got the body handled. Jane came by and took shots of my ’72 Ford F250 and the Shovelhead in the back. She thinks she can move it and the Shovelhead. Not sure I can sell the 1928 Shovelhead.

Bikernet Weekly News for 4th of July

There’s Always Freedom in the Air in America

It’s Thursday. And we are celebrating the Declaration of Independence that we are all equal and deserve happiness.

At the end of the day, it’s up to man to set and enforce morals. We have the capabilities to do everything right. As a brother said as we snorted lines and drank whiskey, “Time will tell and shit will smell.”

Weekly News and ROT Rally – join the Cantina

By | General Posts

What’s hip and what’s real?

We see it constantly around us. It’s one of the things I liked about being a biker. It was just me and my motorcycle. I wore what I wore for me and nobody else. Most of us looked like hell most of the time. Who cared?

Life is changing fast and in many respects I don’t like the business formula thrust on us by many companies. I try to keep Bandit’s Cantina and Bikernet simple and to the point, no games.

As I often say behind a bottle of whiskey. “Time will tell and shit will smell,” as told to me by a Richmond Hells Angel when I was a prospect.

Texas ROT Rally hits a homerun

This is a ’70s style event where alcohol meets full-frontal nudity. Over 200,000 made the annual pilgrimage to the Austin area to party like it was 1999 and with a good number of them entering the rally.

The ROT is a throwback rally where the Harley faithful connect at the Travis County Expo Center for music, stunt shows, vendors and custom bikes.

It Couldn’t Be Better

I’ll keep fighting for freedom and questioning authority until the end. I guess it’s my nature as just another grubby biker who loves to ride free.

The Bikernet Weekly News is sponsored in part by companies who also dig Freedom including: Cycle Source Magazine, the MRF, Las Vegas Bikefest, Iron Trader News, ChopperTown, BorntoRide.com and the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum. Most recently the Smoke Out and Quick Throttle Magazine came on board.

Sorta Late Weekend Roundup for April 30, 2019

Car Shows, Fiberglass and Panheads
By Bandit with photos by Wrench and Art Hall

What a nuts week. I looked and rode an ’87 in Fullerton. I wasn’t impressed. Salt Torpedo got close to being ready for fiberglass work. I attended the bike/car show in Seal Beach and these shots are from Art Hall. I’m on a mission from the lord of the Piston Pirates.

In the Cantina – Weekend Roundup for April 24th 2019

By | General Posts

You know me, I can’t sit still and talk about old times when we’re burnin’ daylight. I had to monkey with the Torpedo exhaust system again. The turn-out was going to be an issue.

Micah and I got together on Monday and hammered at the firewall. We had a long discussion with Drew, who is a Bonneville AMA, and FIM tech. We kicked around the massive fire suppression bottles and whether we need two or one for both compartments.

Death, Breakdowns, Salt Efforts and old Indians
By Bandit and Micah McCloskey

I don’t know where to start. Last week we Micah and I peeled into Long Beach in my ’72 Ford F250, which was recently checked out by my mechanic, Mr. Patino.

Ever since I stumbled into this cool truck, I’ve made improvements, but I still wanted to have a professional take a look. I solved lots of issues, but I wanted fresh eyes to look it over.
