Diesel Helmet

Posted on June 11, 2009 by Scott in Other. No Comments

I know what you’re thinking. Why the hell would anyone trust their brain with a fashion label? Maybe because they don’t have one. No seriously these helmets are made in collaboration with another italian company AGV that does have the brains to make a great helmet. Although they do look like they were designed for people with names like Maverick, Goose and Iceman. (That have the ‘need for speed’).

G-Star is another fashion label who has recently released a helmet. We really like their helmet. It has a classic retro look and hopefully well built like their jeans. Both are priced accordingly to their premium denim brands.

Victory Core

Posted on June 8, 2009 by Scott in Bobber, Other. 1 Comment

The CORE is a concept motorcycle designed and built by the Victory Motorcycles Industrial Design team to show what a performance cruiser of the future could look like. We like it because it consists of only the essentials: engine, frame, wheels and front suspension – no rear suspension. Oh and a mahogony wood seat (which is a nice balance to the aluminium frame).

Built around a Victory Freedom(r) 106/6 Stage 2 power plant (1731cc), producing 97 horsepower / 113 ft/lb, the CORE is a modern take on an American motorcycle. We like where they’re going with this concept (and its probably best on a highway). Less is more. Lets hope they start producing this unique cruiser.

Jack Black on Track

Posted on May 21, 2009 by Scott in Classic, Other, Tracker. No Comments

Found this shot of Jack Black on what looks like an old Triumph Dirt Tracker. He is obviously paying homage to Evel Knievel. Thought I’d add a pic of the legend himself. Of course Evel is riding the all american Harley Davidson. Some of you might be surprised to hear that Evel Knievel owned a Honda Motorbike Dealership in the 60’s.

Only a few days since I wrote about the 59 club on this blog I have just heard that Father Bill Shergold died 2 days ago. He was one of the founders of the club. No doubt he will be missed by loads of rockers and bikers all over the world. RIP.

Shooting Starr

Posted on May 15, 2009 by Scott in Other. 3 comments

Just found this photographer called Tony Starr from Melbourne, Australia through Speed Junkies (which is a fresh blog). He is the proud owner of a 1973 Honda CB350. But it was his photography that got me really excited…

Tee it up

Posted on May 9, 2009 by Scott in Classic, Other. No Comments

We can’t get enough of vintage motorcycle t-shirts. Heres a couple of sites that we’ve found that stock some sweet tees. The first is called Motomania and are based in the Netherlands (website is a little confusing) and Nthro is in the States. Nthro stock the vintage Metro Racing collection from Ducati, Triumph, Norton, Moto Guzzi, Vincent and any other bike brand you can think of.

This is one hell of a hair part. I wish my hair looked like that after i take off my helmet. Unfortunately it looks more like this.

Lovin Lovers Land

Posted on May 7, 2009 by Scott in Other. No Comments

Just found this blog through the Deus Oily Rag. Its called Lovers Land. Its a blog about a few guys who dig motorbikes, art and surf. They are travelling the aussie coast with board racks attached to their w650’s. Its some of the coolest photography I have seen in a while. They even manage to work in some of their sponsors products without making it seem forced. Anyway I have the urge to go neck a few Corona’s, not sure why…

Wrap it up… I’ll take it

Posted on May 4, 2009 by Scott in Classic, Other. 1 Comment

I just received some pics of my sr400 before it gets shipped out here. Looks like they have done a good job packing and wrapping. I’m sure there’s a lot that can happen between Japan and Australia. I have heard some horror stories about cars being filled up with water or bikes that look like they have been dropped by forklifts! Anyway, it still looks great at this stage.

Vintage hotties

Posted on April 27, 2009 by Scott in Classic, Other. 1 Comment

I love vintage ads. When motorcycles were naked and woman were clothed. I wonder what happened to these girls? They are probably grandma’s now telling the grandkids how they were once a hot Norton motorcycle model. Wait a minute… is that you Nana?
