Anybody Paying Attention?

Fred 'Krugger' Bertrand won the AMD World Championship of bike building with this V-rod based custom earlier this year. Completely awesome, but more to the point the best example yet to suggest that H-D has missed the fucking boat by not putting the V-rod engine into a sport bike chassis. These engines make over 100hp bone stock, but Harley has stubbornly kept them in a chassis that handles with the grace of a fat girl on ice skates. They pay lip service to the public about how they want to attract younger riders. This would be a way to do it, much more so than painting your Sportsters flat black and acting like you just reinvented the wheel. Take a break from beret shopping Willie G and get on this shit!

Sportster Sweetness

My buddy Don sent me this bike. Don't know who built it, but it's a fine example of just what you can do with a good 5 speed XL. Just gets me itchy to get mine on the road.

Ho, ho, hos!

Sorry for the lack of updates lately. I'm almost done with the KLR and ready to put it on the road. Then work will begin in earnest on Satan's Slingshot, soon to be the most pissed off, unholy Sportster street tracker ever unleashed on the local bagger brigade. Until then, celebrate the mythical birth of the cosmic Jewish zombie with this pic.

A Decade of Destruction

Ten years with my girl Monica this month. It hasn't always been perfect, but she's the one that keeps me human. Only a woman with a heart as pure as hers could love a surly bastard like me for so long. Otherwise, I'd surely be in cabin in the middle of nowhere with a couple dogs, a pile of guns, and mailing letter bombs out like it was Christmas.
