Daytona - Part I

Happy St. Paddy’s day to you all. I’m in Daytona having a great time, even though that means not much sleep. There have been some great rides, my obligatory stop at the Iron Horse to take in the free David Allen Coe concert...

Ken's Factory Bagger

Ken Nagai of Ken’s Factory (Nagoya, Japan and Long Beach, CA) didn’t use much more from the donor Harley-Davidson Twin-Cam than the engine and tranny.

Hiromichi “Hiro” Nishiyama built this beautiful Shovelhead in his Cycles West shop with the help of his sculptor dad who did the beautiful and deep hand engraving.

Chery's Company Shovelhead

Every year, I look forward to what master builder Kaichiroh “Kross” Kurosu of Cherry's Company will show at Mooneyes in Yokohama, Japan.

Mooneyes Japan

Mooneyes came & went in the blink of an eye. That’s the way this Japanese show always is, fast and furious, but at the same time, I can vouch that this is still the one show with the greatest proportion of amazing bikes.

The Race of Gentleman West

Despite the shortened TROG due to the crazy tidal surge and the all day drizzle Saturday, The Race of Gentlemen in Pismo Beach was an amazing event.

Intermot - Part I

My big take-away on this show is again, the incredible executions the Europeans do with their displays. You can imagine being in their shops, or possibly at home with these exhibitors.

"Ramble On", Chaos Cycle's Blue Evo

This 103” Evo custom by George Stinsman is an appropriate post from from Germany in that I just ran into George and had dinner with him a few minutes ago.

BMW's r5 Hommage

How appropriate - I’m in Germany for Intermot and posting a BMW, the r5 Homage that was repurposed to fit in the Skin and Bones exhibition in Sturgis where it made its North American debut.

Riding Backwards

In case anyone may be wondering how I shot the photos I did on this Motorcycle Cannonball, it was while sitting backwards on the back of a saddle piloted by expert rider Dave Przygocki.

Cannonball Stage 15

Sunday, stage-15 and the final day certainly wasn’t a cakewalk, as they designed into the route a 4,000’ climb just after we left Palm Desert.

Cannonball Stage 14

Saturday’s weather made for great riding as we headed out of Lake Havasu City following the Colorado River down to the California Desert.

Cannonball Stage 13

Friday started out very brisk as we left Williams, AZ headed to Lake Havasu City, for stage 13 of the Race of the Century. There weren’t many complaints, however, because it was dry and we knew the further west we went the warmer it would get.
