Hang On Bikernet Weekly News for January 14, 2021

By | General Posts

The Action is Hot and Heavy

Yesterday, I walked to the Deadwood Rec center for my Wednesday Workout. As I stepped off the tall, frozen metal steps a Softail rolled into the gas station/liquor store, the Pack Horse station. It might reach 50 degrees and a low of 25.

I walked over to the rider and said, “Where the fuck do you think you’re going?”

He said, “Nowhere.” He was just warming his bikes, charging batteries and making sure they were running properly. I wanted to ride my Indian to the dealership in Sturgis, but there’s still slippery ice on every corner. Still, the desire was there. It snowed last night.

From Discipline to Wild Custom Choppers

It better be a good one, goddammit. About 1970 I completed another sweat-soaked tour off the coast of Vietnam, my last one. The winding down war took on a pot-smoking air of wonderful R&B tunes, loose broads, long hair and a constant party.

Stressful Bikernet Weekly News for January 7, 2021

By | General Posts

Hey,

This is going to be an interesting news. I pride myself in staying centered and relaxed under any circumstances. Buddhism has helped with my understanding of the universe and everything around me. But our government is stressing me out. I don’t want to hear about what’s going on. I just want it to go away.

A wise man told me once that when you are stressed sit quietly and breathe. Then think about the element that is stressing you out. When you open your eyes, do so with the realism that whatever it is, was just a thought. It wasn’t real. Stress is a fabrication of your mental agility. You can be stressed about anything and nothing. It’s just the way you think—so change it.

Easier said than done from time to time, yet it is supremely attainable. Let’s hit the news and think about wild choppers, Bonneville racing, new projects and beautiful women. My stress is gone.

Bikernet Weekly News for New Years Eve Goddammit

By | General Posts

It Better Be and Sunny and Bright 2021

Happy New Year!

It better be a good one! I hope everyone is staying safe and that by the middle of the year vaccines will have spread and the world can open up once more. I hope that Sturgis will be in full swing

And I hope the Bonneville International Speed Trials will be open and we can take our 45 flathead, Bonne Belle and the JIMS 135-inch powered Salt Torpedo to Bonneville for its first speed runs.

Let’s make the next year kick some ass and prove that freedom works.

Ride fast and free forever,

Seven of our Favorite Hood Ornaments

By | General Posts

Hood ornaments have gone by the wayside for most automakers, but the heyday of chrome and glass came in the Art Deco ’30s. Several brands offered similar themes of athletic animals, famous (literal) figureheads, or the female form. Here are just seven of our favorites, we’re sure you’ll recognize quite a few.

Cantina Episode 91: Will Success Return to the Covid Cantina

It’s Touch and Go in the Badlands
by K.Randall Ball

Bandit roared down Spearfish Canyon and his mind settled with every curve and the rumble of his exhaust blasting off the sheer cliffs and Jack Pines. He came to a stretch where lush pines were knocked over like chess pawns on a polished mahogany game table.

He slowed as he rounded a curve and gazed at large, almost 200-year-old Jack Pines knocked flat, like a tabletop toothpick container run over by a truck. It seemed unnatural and freaky as he twisted his throttle and continued to roar up the canyon toward Cheyenne Crossing and his Bandit’s Cantina food truck.

It dawned on him that a recent monsoon like rain contained a tornado threat. Mother nature’s power touched down in the canyon and ripped through the trees like a drunk truck driver through fence posts. He reached back to check the strapped down cash box. It vibrated with the road’s surface but was still secure. Bandit looked ahead just as a squirrel darted into the lane.

Let’s See How it All Plays Out

I’m packing shit and checking my list for the run to Deadwood. Next year will wake up the world to many issues. I joke about following the right path. Hopefully, we can all find a comfortable, clear and honest one.

But I will always believe freedom works.
