I watched “Ukraine on Fire” last night
, a documentary recommended by Sean Penn. For 92 days the people of Ukraine fought their own government in the streets of Kyiv to force their Russian dictator to leave. This took place from 2007 to 2019. The whole Parliament voted for the dictator until the people threw him out.

Zelensky came along a couple of years after the insurrection in the streets. I wonder what he was doing during the riots. Have you watch one of his sitcoms about being elected and the corruptions. They are well done and humorous if you can keep up with the subtitles.

I’m still reading a 5-volumn set of books by Winston Churchill covering 1935 until after WWII. His mantra was that he would fight in the streets, in the alleys, at sea, in the mountains until the threat of the dictator was abolished. He would never stop. He offered that mantra to any country that would stand with the English at that time. He had a tough time convincing many countries and many chose to go with the bully, Hitler. As you know, that didn’t work out so good for them.

I believe the Ukrainians will fight in the streets, in the alleys, at sea and in the mountains to save their country and their freedoms. Maybe then Europe and America will respect them.

Let’s hit the news.

The People’s Convoy, represented by Brian Brase, Mike Landis, Marcus Sommers, Rebecca Burts, and Jerry Stetz, has been made aware of a rumor that is circulating which is entirely false and without basis.

Our convoy has raised approximately $1.5 million through American Foundation for Civil Liberties and Freedom. The collection and disbursement of those monies are being overseen by lawyers and accountants, and we’re in near daily contact with the organization’s founder and its head of operations. All such monies are present and accounted for – and those monies are regularly being disbursed to cover costs associated with the convoy. Ledgers are being kept, and all financial transactions are being handled in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).

Any rumors to the contrary are completely untrue and wholly without merit.

We should note that there are groups and individuals that have supported us at various points throughout this journey – Advocates for Citizens’ Rights, American Foundation for Civil Liberties and Freedom, Leigh Dundas, and others – and these groups and individuals deserve our thanks and support for helping to make our convoy the success it has been. We do not condone criticism or false accusations directed at any of our partners, who deserve only our sincere gratitude and respect.

We would all do well to remember that there are real opposition forces in the mix who seek to deprive us all of our freedom and civil liberties.

These are the forces we must defeat through firm resolve and unity. United we stand, divided we fall, and with that in mind, we encourage everyone to remain focused on our goal of defeating government overreach, lifting mandates, ending states of emergency, abiding by our Constitution and having accountability.

Help us to do that by joining The People’s Convoy, or donating at

I wrote to them and tried to explain that the big picture fight is respecting fossil fuels and scientific transparency. Haven’t heard back.--Bandit


The @lebinsurancegroup bike is finished and on display at the @donniesmithshow I want to thank everyone involved!!

This was his rig. Too bad he didn’t have Backbone Built Bikes painted all over it. Something to think about.

According to a couple of my brothers, he’s good people and a talented builder. If you find out anything don’t hesitate to reach out to them or me.

I teach the science of the people who will not be slaves. - Ed Berry

In March 2022, the Los Angeles Times published an editorial that was 100% misinformation about what it called climate “misinformation.”

Climate change alarmism is not based on science. It is based on money, politics, brainwashing, groupthink, and conditioned reflex as Pavlov did with his dogs.

Far too many people, including scientists, incorrectly assume the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is correct about climate change. They incorrectly think undesirable climate events prove our CO2 caused these events, which is not only nonsense but also logically invalid because events do not prove their cause.

All claims that human CO2 emissions cause climate change begin with IPCC’s invalid theory that says human CO2 emissions have caused all the increase in atmospheric CO2 since 1750 (or above 280 ppm). All climate treaties, laws, regulations, taxes, green energy tax credits, and carbon capture, assume this false IPCC theory is true.

Peer-reviewed publications, that the IPCC ignores, prove this IPCC theory is false and that IPCC’s own data prove nature, not human CO2, controls the CO2 level.

These publications show human CO2 emissions are insignificant to atmospheric CO2. Therefore, efforts to reduce human CO2 emissions waste considerable time, money, and productivity.

The few scientists (remarkably absent from government payrolls) who study the true causes of climate change find that nature, not human CO2, controls the climate. And since our CO2 does not control the climate, we can’t “solve” or “address” climate change by turning off our CO2.

The so-called “solutions” to global warming make the poor poorer and the rich richer, and do not reduce CO2 emissions.

The scientific method says we cannot prove a theory is true, but only one contradiction proves a theory is false and this one contradiction outvotes all claims that the theory is true. Scientific consensus is irrelevant in science.

Science progresses by negating theories. Science becomes pseudoscience when people reject evidence that proves a theory is false, as they have done in climate science. IPCC’s pseudoscientists ignore evidence that proves IPCC’s theory is false.

The 20% drop in human CO2 emissions during the pandemic did not slow nature’s CO2 increase. If we removed all trace of humans on the planet, we would not stop nature’s unrelenting CO2 increase.

If climate alarmists would stop long enough to think and study, here is what they would learn.

CO2 flows into and out of the atmosphere as water flows into a lake and out over a dam. The higher the level (of CO2 or water), the faster the outflow. The level adjusts to make outflow equal to inflow. Thereafter, continued constant inflow does not further change the level. CO2 does not accumulate in the atmosphere. The CO2 level increases only enough to make outflow equal to inflow.

The IPCC agrees CO2 inflow into the atmosphere is 95% natural and 5% human. Physics shows each inflow produces a level where outflow equals inflow, making the (first order) human contribution to the CO2 level only 5% (or 20 ppm), using IPCC’s own data.

But the IPCC claims human CO2 is 30% (or 120 ppm) of the CO2 in the atmosphere. They do this because IPCC’s theory requires 30% and to say otherwise would admit IPCC’s theory is false. So, IPCC scientists adjust data to match their theory rather than use data to test their theory, as they should.

To support its sleight of hand, the IPCC claims human CO2 stays in the atmosphere longer than natural CO2, like for thousands of years. Indeed, if this happened, it would increase the human CO2 in the atmosphere. But the IPCC thereby violates physics.

Neglecting isotopes, human and natural CO2 molecules are identical. So, human CO2 and natural CO2 flow out of the atmosphere at the same rate. IPCC’s own data show the half-life of atmospheric CO2 is less than 3 years, which contradicts IPCC’s claim that human CO2 stays in the atmosphere for thousands of years.

In December 2021, the publications of my and others’ peer-reviewed scientific papers prove IPCC’s core theory is false. Yet, the zombie alarmist teachers in schools, colleges, and universities continue to teach their students climate fiction. In Montana, such teaching violates a 2011 Montana Supreme Court ruling.

Your and your children’s minds are too valuable to lose to alarmism.

Your future depends on whether your government follows climate truth or climate fiction.

Climate truth will give you freedom. Climate fiction will make you a slave. The road you choose makes all the difference.

I teach the science of the people who will not be slaves.

Next Revolution Max Harley-Davidson Sportster to Be Announced April 12--
Possible names include 48X and Nightster

Harley-Davidson will announce its next Revolution Max-powered Sportster model on April 12. The Motor Company dropped a short music-themed teaser video titled “Instrument of Expression,” to promote the announcement, and offer a few tantalizing glimpses of the new model.

Harley-Davidson previously teased the next Sportster model last July, revealing a design with more traditional styling than the Sportster S. A dimly-lit shot of the whole bike at around the 12-second mark reveals a motorcycle that resembles photos Harley-Davidson sent out in a survey to select people, with similar details like the engine, fuel tank and the seven-spoke wheels.

NEW from S&S - Mk45 Cutlass Slip-ons for Touring Models

The Mk45 line of touring slip-ons from S&S Cycle gets a third tip design with the addition of the new Cutlass. Perfectly angled to match your bags or reversible for a slash down look, the Cutlass is powder coated using a heat resistant gloss black.

“This one is more evolution than revolution and represents an expansion of our Mk45 slip-on line,” said DZ

Like all of the S&S Mk45’s, this 4.5” muffler includes their removable dB Reducers that allow you to tune for sound and back pressure. Available in Guardian Black (a dead match to the factory header) or show chrome finish. The Mk45 uses a RaceTEX packing for a low, throaty rumble that wakes up the sound of the bike without creating a droning note on the highway. Check out the new Cutlass as well as the entire line of MK45 slip-ons from S&S at

APES IN WYOMING—Mysterious law change of the week.
I saw a Facebook post that Wyoming got their handlebar height requirement changed. July 1, 2022 is the date.

Do we have any contacts in Wyoming? Might be a good chance to congratulate them and start a dialog.

INTERMOT 2022: Voices from the industry approve the new concept

For motorcycle and scooter enthusiasts all over the world, INTERMOT – International Motorcycle, Scooter and E-Bike Fair, taking place this year from 4 to 9 October 2022, is the highlight of the year. As the first international motorcycle and scooter fair of the year, INTERMOT presents the latest models and new products to the international trade and the biker community. This year, the event will implement a future-oriented concept to further develop its position as a leading international business and event trade fair for the world of motorised two-wheelers.

BIHR GmbH – Antonio Lorenzo, Country Sales Manager
“BIHR is keen to make a clear statement. We are a part of this industry. And we want to achieve the same level of importance in Germany as we have in France and other countries. Anyone who wants to be successful in Germany should be there at INTERMOT – live, in colour, loud and direct!”

BMW Group – Michael Sommer, Head of BMW Motorrad Deutschland
“As a German motorcycle manufacturer with a long history, the entire BMW Motorrad Deutschland team naturally has a great interest in presenting our brand and products to INTERMOT visitors, with the Cologne event as a strong trade fair partner in the German market, which is so important to us. We are therefore looking forward to meeting our customers and motorcycle fans in person again at INTERMOT 2022, and celebrating motorcycling together.”

“Triumph has a strong emotional connection with INTERMOT because that’s where the Triumph brand celebrated its relaunch in September 1990.
For us, INTERMOT is an important platform on which we can present our models to our customers live and in person. Of course, we also used digital platforms to introduce [our] new models during the pandemic. But with an emotional and technically complex product, this can never replace the live experience customers have when they touch and sit on our motorcycles, and talk with our staff in person.
After three years, we’re looking forward more than ever to being back in Cologne live and in person to present our latest and future models.”

They should be talking about a united industry front for freedom and scientific transparancy against Climate Alarmism, but maybe they’re afraid.—Bandit

TEXAS WEATHER REPORT--My grandmother Rose at 17, she passed away when my mother was 11 so never met her of course.


US AUTOMOBILE MUSEUMS MAP-- I was on your page here: 
and I wanted to ask if you would consider including my automotive museums map on the page?

The map includes all automotive related museums in the United States, and we listed out their address, phone number, and website if that information was available.

Many of these museums put on events like open houses, auctions, swap meets, workshops, and other fun events and they are a great resource for car and motorsport enthusiasts. We wanted to put together a map so people can easily find a museum that is near their location.

Our website also has a large number of free driving sample tests as well as a road signs if you’re looking to brush up on rules of the road.

Also, if you happen to know of a museum or organization that we don’t have on our map, please let me know!

--Jenn Loughty

I asked Jenn if Motorcycle Museums were included or how they could be included or supported. Waiting to hear back. --Bandit

TRIKES OF THE WEEK—A wild bunch from our exclusive curator.

Last month the Motorcycle Riders Foundation released our first call to action of 2022. The call to action was related to H. Res 366, the anti-motorcyclist profiling resolution in the House of Representatives. Since its release, over 1,600 bikers have taken a moment to click a few buttons and have their voice heard.

One great part about this call to action is that if your lawmaker has already been supportive of the resolution, they get a thank you email. While if your member of congress has yet to act, it explains the issues and asks for support.

We’ve seen great results from this effort. Since the beginning of February, 26 new representatives have signed on as cosponsors!

If there is one thing we know about bikers, they are a competitive bunch. So, to inspire even more engagement, here’s a list of the top 5 states who’ve taken the time to answer the call.

1. Wisconsin – 176
2. Michigan 155
3. New York 136
4. Texas – 124
5. Arizona 118

The map also shows you how many bikers from each state have contacted their member of the House.

If you have already done the call to action, we thank you! But let’s keep the pressure up! You don’t need to do it again, but you can share the link below, forward this email and hit social media. Let’s get as many bikers as we can to take 2 minutes out of their day to spread the word on profiling.

If you want Washington D.C. to address the profiling of bikers click here.

As always, Ride Safe and Ride Free!

TECH FROM LOWBROW-- I would only recommend running the lithium battery if you are also running the DGV-5000L those batteries will malfunction if they are overcharged.

The 5000L runs less volts but the same amps so it will not overcharge the lithium batteries. If you decide to run that battery and generator you should be able to run this battery box in your horseshoe oil tank

About Rogue's snippet about a C-130 stopping to pick up, somebody's bike. Bikes on Air Force jets was unofficial standard operating procedure back in the day. KC-135 tankers coming back from Southeast Asia would be packed with bikes, small Hondas being the favorite bike in the 1960s.

Lots of Air Force guys and their kids were riding around humming the Beach Boys' song "Little Honda" while the good times lasted. But end of the wartime tanker deployments and creation of the EPA put an end to the bike flights. The C-130 crew better hope the general reviewing their case grew up as an Air Force brat riding one of those bring back Hondas so something besides "strict by the book" thinking will be involved in the decision making in their case.

Editor Response Thanks. Hang On!
OTHER COUNTRIES SHOULD FIGHT THEIR OWN BATTLES. We should be more concerned with getting our own country back. This is not the one I served for.
