This One is All Over the Place…. NEVER DULL— About five weeks until the Sturgis Rally hits. I’m helping with the Chip and a raffle roller project. My son, Frank asked what I want for father’s day and my neighbor recommended one of these killer gas cans. Bada bing, it was delivered. Irish Rich is wrapping final mods to our VL frame and I will bring you the first VL, XA, FL project bike tech. We were even able to move the Salt Torpedo into the shop. I need to remove the rear wheel and take it to Jason at Deadwood Custom Cycles for a new tire. The winter got this one.

It’s all Good and Inspiring… Hey, Life for a biker is a wonderful thing, primarily because of the brotherhood. Whether it’s club brothers, same brand brothers, two-wheeled brothers, it’s a special band of brothers. I try to relax. You know that business of meditating works, but it takes extreme concentration. We are working on a tech for Bikernet and maybe Cycle Source Magazine. I’m real close to another tech about our ’48 UL about getting it started and mods for the future. Its full-on first tech is coming. I’m looking for a name for this puppy and I’m working with Atomic Bob on a concept illustration. Until then, ride fast and free forever. –Bandit CLICK HERE to read the Weekly News, only on Bikernet.com * * * * Have a look at our Advertising Programs – none match our comprehensive industry news coverage.

Spring is here & Motorcycling Events coming up Click Here To Read the Weekly News only on Bikernet.com The shop is so close I can taste it. It’s spring out here and flowers are blossoming everywhere. I needed to fabricate some risers for the XA. My lathe is in a crate, so I jammed down to Clausen’s Machine in Spearfish. The 85-82 year old husband and wife team are still running the machine shop, have been for over 50 years. They made me two sets, one 4-inch and one 6-inch. Irish Rich approved. It’s almost whiskey time and a big weekend coming up. We will look at trailers for Bonneville, a bridge for the stream behind the shop and meeting with Irish Rich tomorrow. Saturday, might be ’48 UL start-up day or staining shop chair rails. In the meantime, ride fast and free forever. –Bandit * 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.

It’s an Inspirational Read Click Here to Read the Weekly News only on Bikernet.com Life is nuts, but we’re living in the best of times. Think about your phone, your car, all the technology to keep us safe and going to the next wild event. We look around the world at all the bad shit, and wonder why anyone bothers with the bullshit, when you could be camping, building cool shit, riding with the wind, going on a run, flying an airplane, heading to a car show or a bike show or enjoying a day in the park with your kids. Okay, so I went on the Cycle Source Podcast last week. I didn’t do as well as I would have liked to, but what the hell. It’s just a couple of grubby bikers and the lovely Cycle Source Queen trying to entertain more grubby bikers. Let’s hit the news.

It’s All over the place, find your own, Fast & Free!!! Click Here To Read the Weekly News on Bikernet.com Hey, Talk about a major issue facing our lives currently and in some respects being shoved down our throats. Most of the industry is just plain scared to even ask about the issue. Some of the industry organizations are being bullied by environmental groups. This is a very strange position to be in right now. I have simply asked for scientific transparency. I’m not for or against electric. If it works, it will make for much more simple vehicles. Electric has been tried a number of times. Maybe we have the technology to make it fly this time and maybe not. – Bandit If you haven’t already, check out the new 5-Ball Racing Shop – Click & Go!
It’s Nuts with Worldwide News Life is amazing, treacherous, full of love and hate. This year is a tremendous example of our many plights. I’m watching a documentary series called the Butterfly Effect. It’s about the turning points in Man’s history and how each one is effected – societies, countries and the world. As bikers, we have our choppers or race bikes to take us away from whatever the world throws at us. Try to ignore much of what the world says. Focus on your next ride, your next run or race. Join and support your local or national motorcycle rights group. Let them know you appreciate their efforts to keep us riding free.
