The Holiday Rush Bikernet Weekly News for December 5th, 2019, It’s Cool!

By | General Posts

Hey,

Life is so interesting. Always remember two masterful quotes from folks on a much higher pay grade level than my humble self:

“Everything will be all right in the end. If it’s not all right, it’s not the end.”

“Think your absolute worst thought. Then take a breath and ponder the fact: It was just a thought.”

The Thanksgiving 2019 Bikernet Weekly News

By | General Posts

Hey,

Making progress is a major motivator. I like to climb out of bed thinking the day is going to be exciting. This week I solved some issues, took my 1928 Shovelhead to Larry Settle for a look-over. We organized and shipped Hugh King’s Discovery Channel biker build-off bike to the Sturgis Museum.

We attempted to get two girders from Spitfire Motorcycles. We scored a few Antiques motorcycle parts from Bobby Stark’s lot.

I solved a minor issue with the Salt Torpedo and we are just a couple of weeks away from our first trial runs. I roughed out another Cantina Chapter.

Whacky Bikernet Weekly News for November 21, 2019

By | General Posts

Hey,

A couple of infrastructure changes. From now on, we will post the news on the Free side of the Bikernet Iron Curtain for one week each week. We will also do the same with selected articles before slipping them into Bandit’s Cantina archives for our esteemed members.

We need members, but I want the largest readership to check the news. We also need to inform the largest possible audience of the issues facing motorcycling and of happenings on Bikernet. So, what the fuck, I’m giving it a shot.

Let’s hit the news. It’s going to be a good one:

The Amazing Bikernet Weekly News for November 14th, 2019

By | General Posts

I’ve got birds flying around inside the shop. That’s okay, but the sparrows shit on stuff, but Cash our high-security watch dog doesn’t mind. Hell, his pointed ears don’t even move.

I just returned from Deadwood. The redhead had me freaked about the 8 degrees in the shade temps. It was fucking beautiful. Hell, I took walks in the snow.

Bikernet will have a headquarters in the Badlands before all is said and done, and frankly I can’t wait.

Never a dull moment around here. I need to get back on the shop, working on the Salt Torpedo. We are planning our first major test run in the next couple of weeks. Hang on!

In the meantime, ride fast and free forever!

The Tune-up Bikernet Weekly News for November 7, 2019

By | General Posts

I’m going to be glad when this year is toast

By Bandit, Wayfarer, Rogue, Jim Houck, Laura, the Redhead, Sam, RFR, Bob T. and the rest of the gang

Okay, just relax. That’s the name of my accountant’s business. Shit is happening fast on most fronts and I’m going to Deadwood to relax and slip in the snow.

There’s a side of me that wants to find a place in the Midwest, where I can chill and breathe in the home of the old west and the center of the Chopper World. Motorcycles have always been my home. I like the sound of Bandit in the Badlands.

Let’s hit the news.

Scary Halloween 2019 Bikernet Weekly News

By | General Posts

Looks like my offer on a house in Deadwood found a dead end. Maybe it’s not meant to be. Then again, you never know.

Regarding The torpedo. I welded the helmet canopy in place and painted it. I drilled the holes for the fire suppression lines to the engine compartment.

Suddenly, my 1946 Indian Chief is hot property. We’ll see. And my VA effort seems to be moving forward.

The Shifting Bikernet Weekly News for October 3, 2019

By | General Posts

We Are Living in the Best of Times and should Celebrate

I feel a shift coming. In some respects, I hope it’s a shift in the direction of Freedom. We are actually living in the best of times. Everything on the planet has improved for the better and we need to celebrate, not control and punish.

More and more I hear amazing stories about the lives of folks around me and the amazing things they accomplished. Markus Cuff played drums for Emily Lou Harris for several years. Then he started to shoot photos of bands in the ‘80s and I started to hire him to shoot tech articles for Easyriders. Since then he’s shot features for tons of magazines and for Bikernet.com ™.

I’m working on the Salt Torpedo slowly trying to finish the firewall, the fire suppression unit installations, the helmet cowling and strengthen the front axle swingarm mounts.

I fixed my 1969 Panhead, and the 1928 Panhead battery is toast. I’ve had two of these batteries take a shit and would like to try anti-gravity batteries, but they cost a bunch. I may try again.

In the meantime, ride fast and free forever!
