  1. DVD Review: EDR ? A Mexican Motorcycle Adventure
    From Helmet Hair On the back of the DVD box it says “Ever wonder what happens when a few hundred bike riders with an insatiable taste for fire, beer and mayhem ride hand-built choppers across twisty, pitted tarmac from SoCal to Baja and back?”. That’s a pretty accurate description. This is definitely not a DVD that will score [...]

  2. If El Diablo Can't Stop The Desert Warrior, What Can?
    From World Rider The Darkcyd Racing Team's Rally Raid UK built Desert Warrior blasted through the Ensenada Aqueducts and onto the track heading to Ojos Negros, about 35 miles into the race where the track crosses Baja California's Route 3. Tara, Gary and I throttled our rented Buick SUV down the pavement while Raff, Bill, Tommy and the others followed in Raff's pick-up, our default chase vehicle should anything go wrong. Playing the waiting game, team members watch the highway hoping to see their drivers and cars make the next pit stop. The plan was

  3. My Lap-Band Life: Five Months In
    From Generic Blog As we pick up this month's saga, you remember that my weight loss had slowed.  I lost 4 pounds in April and 3 pounds in May, and I noticed that the amount of food I needed had increased.  So, I scheduled myself with the Doctor for a fill. As you might remember, the lap-band is a plastic frame with a soft plastic bladder that wraps around the upper part of the stomach, just below the esophagus.  A small tube connects the band with a rubber-domed port that attaches below the skin

  4. Favorite Vespa Rides
    From Scooter in the Sticks After years of riding, writing and taking pictures it's easy to loose track of individual rides.  I went through Scooter in the Sticks and picked out some of my favorite or more memorable experiences.  They aren't Vespa reviews or anything like that.  Just reflections of the kind of experiences I have had. I didn't include any winter rides on the Vespa or motorcycle rides.   These are the rides that any Vespa owner could undertake without concern for rain, snow or ice.  In my estimation riding is a little miracle accessible

  5. Darkcyd Deserves A Brake: Day 2 WRC Rally Mexico
    From World Rider By the time the second day of WRC Rally Mexico started, only 5 Rally America group cars were still in the race. The rough roads, intense heat and constant beating of cars had whittled the pack in half. The Darkcyd Racing Team strategy was simple: finish the race. Around the pit there was apprehension about the brakes. Yesterday the calipers had seized. Lead technician Ken Anctil had exhausted every possible angle to find suitable replacements for brake rotors, pads and lines. But it was useless. This is Mexico, so we have

  6. Chrysler. Imported From Detroit. Superb.
    From Cyril Huze Blog... If you belong to the 111 million viewers who watched last weekend Green Bay vs. Pittsburgh Super Bowl XLV you probably saw this Chrysler commercial. Best American car ad I have ever seen. I love it because it’s not only about Chrysler but Detroit. The tag line... This is a content summary only.

  7. Fine Art Tracker finished
    From Sideblog When I saw photos of Alberto Narduzzi's Fine Art tracker I thought 'There's a hell of a lot of air between the top of that TM and the bottom of the tank.' When the photos came through it made sense (from a design point of view, not sure about how it will handle). The shock arrangement looks interesting too. This is set up day at the Pitti Uomo fashion show thing Alberto is showing bikes and photography at. It looks smart. Alberto's GM speedway bike is below. G

  8. Amazing Instant Golden Syrup Steamed Pudding
    From [ dropsafe ] While we’re on a food theme, this requires archiving and sharing because it works. A few years ago my sister Louise (based nr Pittsburgh, PA) sent this out, and I tried it, and it’s astonishingly effective at creating the kind of sticky syrup pudding that is needed as a substrate for custard. Ex-pat Brits should [...]this posting is syndicated from dropsafe Amazing Instant Golden Syrup Steamed Pudding

  9. More Fine Art Collection
    From Sideblog More info on the Fine Art Collection at Pitti Uomo, that our friend Alberto Narduzzi is organising. It's going to be at Motor Expo Verona too, I think. Above is artwork of the stand and some of Alberto's photos that will be on display. Below is a TM-powered framer the shoe company Alberto Fasciani is having built for the display. This follows the Chanel cafe racer. What next Jimmy Choo WR45 racer? G

  10. Fine Art Dirt Collection
    From Sideblog Our friend Alberto Narduzzi sent us this invite, but we can't make it. Pitti Uomo is, I think, a huge fashion show in Italy that has exhibitors showing their ranges (inc streetwear) to buyers. Alberto, Mr Martini and Roberto Totti (along with great Italian bike mag Riders) has some sort of bike and photo exhibition there with Italian shoemaker Alberto Fasciani. 'So?' you're thinking. Well, if you're in the business of promoting race series', getting bikes into the consciousness of people with marketing budgets has got to be a good

  11. Just My Opinion. Arizona Lane Splitting 2011!
    From KT DID For us Californians, lane splitting is legal, and a must, in my opinion. Some choose to split, some don't. In my case, like most, I take the situation in hand... then consider it. But we split lanes for several reasons here. Safety, i.e., idiots who don't look when they change lanes, idiots who just want to barrel you down just because you are on a bike, traffic, and because our California emissions code checks out our exhaust system and we overheat when we sit in traffic.Overheating causes traffic jams. All

  12. Amercian Chopper?and zombies!
    From Rippin Kitten TLC reanimates the recently defunct American Chopper by pitting Teutel against Teutel Ok, so maybe I lied about the zombie part (I was inspired by the book title Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Classic Regency Romance – Now with Ultraviolent Zombie Mayhem! Yes, it’s a real book…) But anyway,  TLC is on a tear [...]

  13. Brad Pitt New Custom Motorcycle
    From Cyril Huze Blog... “He Who Dies With The Most Toys Wins”. Even when riding wearing a full-face helmet and sunglasses Brad Pitt can’t escape the paparazzi. Which is a way for us to keep track of the number of custom motorcycles he keeps in his Hollywood Hills home. The latest... This is a content summary only.

  14. The Film Premiere: 7 Days, 17 Hours
    From Sojourn Chronicles Chasing history along the Pony Express Trail Last summer, I packed up my iron horse and headed west to follow the Pony Express Trail. My plan was to ride with a film crew from Duquesne University, Pittsburgh, for a few days and write stories about their film making. I was with them for four days and [...] Related posts:The official announcement is here! Riding hard to get to St. Joseph, MO More filming on the Pony Express Trail

  15. Been down this road before
    From On Two Wheels I have always been one to take things apart to see what ?makes then tick?, and then, once I figure it out, putting it all back together seems somewhat less important. I have a particularly bad history in that regard when it comes to motorcycle ?projects?, having turned at least 2 running motorcycles into basket cases in years gone by. The first time it was a Norton  of indeterminate vintage. Well not so much indeterminate as varied. The 500cc Atlas engine and Roadholder frame were from two
