The people we aspired to be decades ago.
The people we aspired to be decades ago were much different than the celebrities young people looked up to today. The values of our past have nearly vanished, but I’m hoping that if everyone sees this, they might think differently about what “cool” was yesterday and what is considered “cool” today. . . really isn’t.
Share and remind everyone what “cool” used to be like!
Liberty is the right to chose. Freedom is the result of that choice.

SUGAR BEAR TURNS 75, BILLY LANE RELEASED, CLUBS WIN NO-COLORS LAWSUIT THURSDAY NEWS FOR September 18, 2014
Coming to the end of a very strange week.
Hey, What a strange day and closing on a very strange week. I felt pressure at the first of the week to finish several features, and I just thought of another one.
I wrote the Tom Seymour, of Saddlemen story for Hot Bike, and will meet with him to confirm all my mistakes and fill out the tech chart tomorrow. I wrote a Cantina episode, and a small speech for the public comment period for the Wilmington Board of Commissioners tonight. We are fighting for a waterfront area. This fight has waxed and waned for over 20 years. Good god get ‘er done, will ya.
Transforming the J&P Roller with an S&S X-Wedge motor into a street pounding machine.
Editors note: The following is an introduction to a 5 part tech series which will document the processes used at Bare Knuckle Choppers to transform the J&P Roller with an S&S X-Wedge motor into a street pounding machine to be given away at the 2015 J&P Cycles Open House Rally.
Clocks dictate so much of our lives. My wake up call is at 6am. Checkout is 9am. I’ve been on the road for 30 of the last 48 hours to get to the roller for J&P Cycles’ Giveaway bike. At least before Paul Wideman of Bare Knuckle Choppers (BKC) rips into it. Kate, who’s been with me since Atlanta, is from my hometown near Chicago. She knows me better than myself. She’s also the Sicilian version of Jessica Rabbit, if Jessica could belch like a sawed-off shotgun.
Ride with more comfort and stability with Memphis Fats Side Wings. The side wings expand the comfort pocket of your Memphis Fats windshield by channeling air outward while “cleaning” the flow. You’ll feel the improved stability, and the wings can be adjusted to suit each rider. Tinted with the new “Ghost” color, the wings let in an 85% visible light transmission for an excellent view.
Memphis Fats Side Wings attach with exclusive billet biplane clamps. These clamps are CNC-machined black-coated aluminum with injection-molded Santoprene pads that grip the windshield surface but leave no trace upon removal. This makes it quick and easy to install or remove the side wings whenever you want without having to remove the windshield. Memphis Fat Side Wings are designed for use on Memphis Fats windshields.

Some of the quickest and fastest drag bikes on the planet.
The WMDRA’s AMSOIL Sturgis Nationals brought some of the quickest and fastest drag bikes on the planet to a vintage 1/8 mile strip just out of Sturgis, South Dakota for the 74th Annual Sturgis Race and Rally, along with–oh–400,000 friends.
The WMDRA came to be a part of the 74th Annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally and to bring drag racing to Sturgis Dragway. Sandra Alberti’s collaboration with Sturgis Nationals Title sponsor AMSOIL was busy even before their races began.
