Pre-Rally Week Bikernet Weekly News for July 29, 2021

By General Posts

Hey,

The rally is starting next week and at the last minute we are buying a Bikernet Billboard in Sturgis. It’s another project, but what the fuck.

We are working with Markus Cuff on a Petersen Museum motorcycle exhibit featuring long distance motorcycles. Some wild bikes.

I’ll sign books for donations to Kid’s Ride at the Builder’s Breakfast coming up next weekend.

Never stop or slow down and always fight for the freedom to ride fast and free.

The Independence Day Coming Bikernet Weekly News for July 1, 2021

By General Posts

I go from dawn to dusk trying to stay prepared and be pro-active. Then as it reaches about 7:00 I grab a beer and head to a chair under a blooming maple tree to relax with a pile of the Redhead’s most magnificent bowl of guacamole.

We sit and ponder the goals for the next day. Micah is working on our plans for Bonneville. Tonight, after the news I get to have a Jack on the Rocks under the maple tree. And this weekend I want to take the ’69 Panhead out for a test ride.

Let’s hit the news.

Have a terrific holiday and ride free forever!

The Doomed Bikernet Weekly News for March 25th, 2021

By General Posts

There are two premises at play here. Threats of doom and control freaks. Some folks are constantly hunting for more control over you.

At one time bikers made up one of the largest activist groups in the country. We were right up there with the NRA. We fought hard for freedom to choose to wear a helmet or not. We won until a control freak (Joan Claybrook) took over the DOT and came up with the public burden theory, so she could take our freedom again. We faced an uphill battle gallantly and in many states succeeded.

I never understood the media. They supported helmet laws and taking our freedoms. But the media relies on freedom or there would be no media just government propaganda. Hell, you might also read a book I wrote in 1999, Sam Chopper Orwell. It explains what’s happing in biker style. Hang on.

You’ll see this topic pop-up numerous times in the news. It’s not about exhaust smoke and plastic containers. It’s about honesty, freedom and good times. Let’s hit the news.

It just bothers me, because we are actually living in the best of times. Sure, there’s stuff to do and improve. But we are not doomed. Let’s party or as the brothers say, “Support Good Times.”

Ride Fast and Free Forever.

The Creative Bikernet Weekly News for March 18th, 2021

By General Posts

Hey,

I’m researching FXDR models and was trying to find out the difference between FXDR and FXDRS. I was told there were slight differences, and then Ron and Bartels’ H-D helped. The only two-year model 2019 and 2020 were all FXDR but when they sent the paperwork it said FXDRS, so the confusion.

The folks next door loaned me a fork lift. I have two motorcycles in my office and one in the living room upstairs. The brothers, Jeremiah and James were concerned, but it worked like a champ and we lowered them to the shop level in no-time.

The Bonne Belle arrived at Departure Bike Works this week. Lee and his crew will install our new 45 flathead engine and get it ready for Bonneville.

The international speed trials are on for August 25 in Bonneville, and we will be there with the Salt Torpedo and the Bonne Belle. Hang on for more reports.
