Bikers terrorize family in high-speed chase

Monday, September 30th, 2013

These aren’t “bikers” they’re hoodlums. This is NYC, most other parts of the country such behavior would have resulted in one or more cases of justifiable homicide by the driver of the SUV. Multiple coverage, second article covers more info about the driver’s 911 call during the whole ordeal. SEE IT: Pack of motorcyclists chase […]

Iran Nuke Expert Killed

Wednesday, January 11th, 2012

The latest Iranian Nuke Scientist take-down reads like a cold war spy novel… Kudos to the two wheeled mad men who stuck a magnetic bomb to the car. Naturally Israel has been blamed, and may well have been behind it. But I seriously doubt, were that the case, they acted without the United State’s tacit approval.

Law Would Allow Motorcyclists To Run Some Red Lights!

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011

I just love the OMG! OMG! OMG! hand wringing sensationalism of this pathetic headline Proposed Law Would Allow Motorcyclists To Run Some Red Lights.  It’s like the coming traffic armagedden or something when in fact its such a trivial thing that is already law in a lot of states.  But then routine and common sense doesn’t make the […]

Exotic Feline Rescue

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2011

There is a circuit we ride almost weekly and here only recently did I discover that there is an exotic big cat rescue barely even off our path.  It looks like they have close to a couple dozen big kitties there and will be worth a visit..

2012 Goldwing

Monday, February 21st, 2011

The much debated and long awaited 2012 Goldwing is almost here. Despite the claims of all the “insiders” it doesn’t look like much has changed in the power plant. But the suspension and styling changes are certain to be a hit. At least they are with me. The front side vents remind me of a […]

Ringing out 2010

Saturday, January 1st, 2011

What a way to bring 2010 to a conclusion. It’s 60 degrees here in western Indiana today and the last of the ice melted off the driveway overnight. After a little work today became the last official riding day of 2010. And after the December we’ve had here a couple hours of riding was just […]

Schwarzenegger tells motorcyclists to pipe down, signs noise bill

Wednesday, September 29th, 2010

So now Schwarzenegger has signed a bill reinforcing a 27-year-old federal regulation that is rarely enforced. I seem to remember Arizona did that and the Fed is suing them. Any bets there’s no lawsuit over this one? On the topic of the actual law I dislike it and I dislike obnoxiously loud pipes. Any nuisance […]

Annual VTX Tire Replacement

Thursday, September 9th, 2010

Now that I have over 20k miles riding on the “dark side” I can’t see myself going back. The clincher was last week. With almost 20k on the General Altimax HP I was almost to the wear bars and wanted a replacement before going to North Carolina. I have been steadily researching the next time […]

Tail of the Dragon

Wednesday, August 25th, 2010

With our 20th approaching I’m preparing for a trip to the Tail of the Dragon and came across this excellent video…. Following my BFF through the Dragon from killboy on Vimeo.

Wicked Motorsports

Tuesday, March 30th, 2010

Brownsburg has always been a motorsports friendly town so its not surprise another motorcycle outfitter has shown up, Wicked Motorsports. The people are super friendly and they seem well balanced whether you’re sport, cruiser or dirt. For those of you who have been around the riding scene for awhile it is interesting to note that […]
