Chopper Time Biketoberfest 2022

By General Posts

by Rogue, Dale, Christy

“This event has a big turn out and has for as long as I can remember. I never miss it, and it appears many others feel the same way.

Wille from Tropical Tattoo, some sponsors and a lot of volunteers come together to present this great bike show twice a year.

While the motorcycles on display are all great, Roadside Marty the MC is always a hit with the mic.”

Tomorrow’s Outcomes Hinge on Today’s Actions

In contrast to the last century, ‘Roaring’ is not likely to be how the current ‘20s are remembered. The Jazz Age’s nostalgic “carefree” stereotype offers little similarity to the present. Amidst all the uncertainty, one thing is clear: politics are everywhere, like it or not. With all this in mind, big issues are on the table that are ripe with controversy. Decisions on electric vehicles (EVs), automotive fuel supply, and one’s own ‘right to modify’ will make a direct impact on our community and the final results are likely to be consequential.

With so much at stake, enthusiast participation in the political process is crucial—but not difficult. Nearly 7,000 state and federal elected positions are up for grabs in November. Notably, 84% of all state lawmakers will be in the running—marking their first race since redistricting has shifted constituencies. Party control of the U.S. Congress and state legislatures will be determined in the upcoming elections.

Use the voting tool at semaSAN.com/semavotes to register to vote and learn the deadlines for where you live.

In advance, find out if your state and federal representatives are affiliated with the hobby-friendly, SEMA-supported caucuses at semaSAN.com/statecaucus and semaSAN.com/federalcaucus.

You can locate your elected officials at semaSAN.com under the “Legislators” tab.

Ready to influence our nation’s public policy roadmap going forward? Good news: the ballot box awaits! This year, head to your polling place with renewed purpose. Learn where your candidates are on issues important to you. Then ensure your voice is heard via your vote. No better way to weigh-in and make sure this important opportunity counts. Take care of fulfilling your civic duty just like your prized ride—with pride in ownership!

Arizona Senator Rallies for Passage of the RPM Act

By General Posts

Since being elected to Congress in November 2020, U.S. Senator Mark Kelly (D-AZ) has proven himself to be a strong ally and defender of motorsports. Sen. Kelly is an original cosponsor of S. 2736, the Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports Act of 2021 (RPM Act), and he has championed the bill both publicly and behind the scenes. Sen. Kelly recently spoke at a Senate Environment and Public Works Committee hearing about the importance of the RPM Act and amateur racing, noting that his wife, former U.S. Representative Gabby Giffords, raced motorcycles on the track.

“Racing is important to many Arizonans – and it’s a part of our state’s legacy,” he said. “The RPM Act will help provide certainty to Arizona’s amateur racers and auto mechanics from EPA regulations, which could harm their ability to enjoy the hobby of motorsport.” As a former astronaut (four missions into space) and naval aviator who flew 39 combat missions in Operation Desert Storm, Sen. Kelly understands the passion of racers and the adrenaline associated with speed lovers.

He is also amongst the 31 Senate co-sponsors of the RPM Act, fellow federal lawmakers and candidates running for re-election in 2022.

The 2022 election season is now in high gear. For information on voting in November’s elections (including absentee and early voting), to find your polling place, identifying your lawmakers and the candidates running in 2022, use the link Click Here.

Top 10 Exclusive Bike Makers

By General Posts

Come see the best of the best exclusive, expensive, custom bike makers in the world!
by Jean-Luc Maire from https://www.topspeed.com/

The idea of a motorcycle is a customization of the previous generation’s pedal bikes, allowing riders to have the latest innovations on their chosen platform. Custom bike makers and modders have allowed riders to customize the bike to their liking. These are the most popular options for custom motorcycles on the market today.

NYC Norton
This body shop specializes in the hipster trend, like the Norton Commando Cafe Racer. Each bike is built to order, including engine work, reliability modifications, and high-performance tuning.

Deus Ex Machina
Deus Ex Machina Customs approaches the custom bike owner differently, focusing mainly on gearheads and hobbyists interested in mirroring their custom designs.

Diamond Atelier
As you can see on the shop’s landing page, Diamond Atelier Motorcycles exudes quality and refined style; These designs are reminiscent of James Bond in their style and taste for high-dollar add-ons.

LC Fabrications
Long gone are the days of custom metal fabrication courses in the local high school and blacksmiths in the auto shops of America. LC Fabrication fights against this grain in its business model. With modern CNC operating procedures, classic metal fabrication, and their specialty in steelworking, the company forms hair-brained designs according to the designer’s imagination.

Down and Out Cafe Racers
The cafe racer is a beautiful excuse to buy that broken-down CB750 sitting in your neighbor’s garage. Although most cafe racer builds end in a Sold As Is purchase and a sale at a loss, this shop seeks to revive the category and maintain its momentum in pop culture.

Lowbrow Customs
Why don’t we, as motorcyclists have the same options for customization as our other 2-wheeled friends, the bicyclists? Wouldn’t it be great to have a one-stop shop where you could get anything you needed for a bike rebuild, including Frame, Engine, and Tanks? Look no further; Lowbrow has you covered. Well known for its part selection and customization guides, Lowbrow is a playground for the engineer-minded rider seeking elevated styling.

Deus Ex Machina The Drover Dog 2009

Death Machines of London
As a surprise to most of us, this team does not craft custom Guillotines in its assembly shop. Although just as dangerous to some, their motorcycles seem much more impressive. The owner of Death Machines of London was introduced to motorcycling at a young age and always had an affinity for customizing stock products to fit his specifications.

Rough Crafts
When you walked into the salesroom of your local motorcycle dealer and picked out your current bike, I’m sure some features stood out to you and sold you on purchasing the bike. Over time the design becomes boring and needs a quick refresher for the rider to feel special once more. Rough Crafts is here to assist you in the process. Their ideology is elevating the stock bike with high-quality custom parts, namely in the cruiser segment of the industry.

Classified Moto
Classified Moto is a clear favorite for the team here at TopSpeed. We have mentioned their build for the Walking Dead and Daryl Dixon’s bike on various occasions. With their minimalist styling and unique approach to upgrading the various stock bikes they work with (everything from the Triumph Daytona to the FZ09 (and usually a melding of multiple cycles), they stand out in the various showings of their projects.

Arch Motorcycles
We saved the best for last, and Arch is no stranger to praise and acknowledgment. It all started when Keanu Reeves approached his friend and custom bike maker, Gard Hollinger, on a custom Harley-Davidson design to bring his cruiser into a more high-performance bike. With some onlookers’ praise for the project, they decided to take their plans to market. Their most famous motorcycle, the KRGT-1, opened up a new segment to the cyberpunk performance V Twin Engine Category. The 1S bike pushes the company toward the sport bike genre with a more aggressive lean angle and sleeker design. Our favorite is Method 143, seemingly an art piece on wheels and ferocious. It has the most attractive rear fairing on any bike we have seen. The team custom fabricates most of the parts in their shop according to the customer’s design ideas and material specifications. Manufactured in the LA facility, this bike is intended to be a premium option for the KRGT-1 Customer.

Discovering British V-Twin Classics

By General Posts

Could there be a Connection?
by Bandit and crew, including the National Motorcycle Museum

“Recently, I spotted this BSA V-Twin and was inspired first by the fact that BSA manufactured a V-Twin but then by the styling that called out Brough Superior. Two motorcycles dominated the upscale V-Twin market in the UK during the early 1900s.

Vincent and Brough Superior, so I was astounded to discover this BSA from the National Motorcycle Museum.

I’ll let you kick around what I found and let me know your thoughts. Hell, someone surely knows something that may connect these bikes.”
— Bandit

Why We Chop: Chapter 4

By General Posts

Even in Oklahoma City
by Bill May

“As a kid growing up in Oklahoma in the ‘60s I was crazy about hot rods and motorcycles. My father passed away when I was 14. Mom didn’t drive. It was legal for a 14-year-old to ride a motor scooter of five horsepower or less.

Mom bought me a Cushman Eagle to ride to school and run errands on. I got a job at the local root beer stand and rode every day. I read hot rod magazines. Sometimes they’d feature a stripped-down custom motorcycle.”
