It’s a Game Changing Wild News

By Bandit, Bob T., Bill Bish, Rogue, Laura, Barry Green, Sam Burns, the Redhead, and the rest of the crew

This is going to be a wild day. This would have been the day we rolled out for the 2019 Bonneville Speed Trials, but it’s not happening. We still have work to do, but we did make our first pass around the block successfully.

We accomplished a great deal in the last eight months and we are proud to say it runs and handles like a champ. Amazing. Don’t miss the 22nd Chapter of the Salt Torpedo build story.

The Race is on for Truth, Justice, Fairness, Freedom and Fast Shit.

All across America, more women are finding joy on two wheels, and spending money on motorcycling, and it’s generating media coverage.

I want to jump right into the news. I need to scramble back into the shop and start work on the Salt Torpedo firewall final aluminum construction. We have just eight days before we should be rolling out towards the salt. The list never ends, but it’s getting shorter.

Hang on for the next report. In the meantime, ride fast and free, forever!

Bikernet Weekly News for 01 August 2019

Sturgis is starting tomorrow and news is coming in from the road out. The cute little Easyriders French editor is coming to see me next week. Frankie went to MetalSport about his FXR front wheel yesterday and is coming to see me around his Dyna front wheel today.

Hell, James and Jeremiah rolled James’ Dyna in the shop yesterday while George “The Wild Brush and I worked on the canopy latch. They replaced his stock clutch with an extra plate Barnett clutch. We will bring you a report next week. Works like a champ, if you have upgraded your performance package.

I’m also working on three bike features for Bikernet Readers. Let’s hit the news:

Bikernet Weekly News 25 July 2019

By | General Posts

I’ve been approached by two companies to either write or produce a documentary on the history of Easyriders. The new Choppers Magazine wants a written story and a documentary producer approached me about producing a documentary.

What was an Easyrider? What did he stand for and who understood the code and who didn’t? That may be the context of the article.

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.

Call to Action! This is your chance to help Freedom and Choice Ring

It’s amazing, in a world gone nuts with regulation, one state is considering freedom. Check it out, in the news. Missouri has an adult helmet repeal in front of their Governor. Did you know about half of our states have adult freedom and in most cases free states have a better accident record than states with helmet laws.

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

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.
