Here we go.
The 5-Ball Racing Team lost a member this week. Ray C. Wheeler fought off death numerous times in the last 20 years. He succeeded right up until this week. It’s an interesting time, because many of the brothers I hear from are at Ray’s age in his mid-70s including myself. It’s a decision point for many, whether to keep working or stop and how much activity can we still deliver accurately and effectively.

Some brothers are forced to keep going. They don’t have the financial wherewithal to kick back. I remember a brother saying, “Fuck that union gig!” Other brothers refused to pay into social security. It comes back to haunt them big time. But there’s a chrome side to the equation for us grubby bikers in the motorcycle industry. We love what we do. Every day is a play day full of creativity and adventure. We’re still having a blast.

Hell, yesterday I was trying to get my stretched FXR running again. I took off the CV carb float bowl and fixed it. I fixed the accelerator pump and it would pop but not run. I knew I had to take the carb off and clean the jets.

Of course, mad man Jeremiah reminded me five times, before I threw him out of the shop. The jets were a mess, but when I put it back together, it immediately ran like a top. I took it for a test ride yesterday around the block, in Eddie Trotta style. It was cool enough, so I rode it to the Post Office to deliver a package. When I returned to the shop, I noticed the rear brakes weren’t working well. I check the fluid and adjusted the brakes.

Another test ride on Friday. Let’s hit the news.

THE CALIFORNIA THREAT--California Is Done With Cars And Emissions By 2035

I saw this reported in various places as a ban on internal-combustion-engine cars, but that isn’t quite right — the actual order by California Governor Gavin Newsom is that new cars sold in California by 2035 must emit zero emissions. That describes electric cars, of course, but also allows room for creativity.

From Newsom’s office:
The transportation sector is responsible for more than half of all of California’s carbon pollution, 80 percent of smog-forming pollution and 95 percent of toxic diesel emissions – all while communities in the Los Angeles Basin and Central Valley see some of the dirtiest and most toxic air in the country.
Following the order, the California Air Resources Board will develop regulations to mandate that 100 percent of in-state sales of new passenger cars and trucks are zero-emission by 2035 – a target which would achieve more than a 35 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and an 80 percent improvement in oxides of nitrogen emissions from cars statewide.

In addition, the Air Resources Board will develop regulations to mandate that all operations of medium- and heavy-duty vehicles shall be 100 percent zero emission by 2045 where feasible, with the mandate going into effect by 2035 for drayage trucks. To ensure needed infrastructure to support zero-emission vehicles, the order requires state agencies, in partnership with the private sector, to accelerate deployment of affordable fueling and charging options.

It also requires support of new and used zero-emission vehicle markets to provide broad accessibility to zero-emission vehicles for all Californians. The executive order will not prevent Californians from owning gasoline-powered cars or selling them on the used car market.
That last sentence is also key. No one is coming to take your shitty old E30 that you like to wrench on any time soon. Unless, of course, you would like to sell it to me.

Congratulations on your new film, Climate Hustle II, regarding the largest scam on the American people in a century. I have a couple of questions. Actually one question and one request. The question is why would any rich celebrity want to support a socialist effort or an effort to realign wealth? They would be some of the first attacked if socialists took power.

My request: I would like a very simplistic pamphlet for kids correcting the Global Alarmist Scenario. Here are some thoughts:

1. There is nothing to fear or worry about. The Climate has been changing for 300 million years.
2. Science is never settled. It’s the search for new knowledge.
3. Climate is not heating up. It actually may become cooler soon and then warmer in the future.
4. The seas don’t rise more than about 7 inches for every 100 years. Hasn’t changes for thousands of years.
5. Extreme weather isn’t happening. It’s actually down currently.
6. Doomsday is not man made. We’re doing fine.
7. We’re actually living in the best of times. Unfortunately, some control freaks can’t handle it.

Andy Singer at the Heartland Institute coupled Climate Alarmists to Flat Earthers. I thought that was an interesting analogy. --Bandit

QUICK, OPEN THE BANDIT’S BAD JOKE LIBRARY, MASK FREE-- An invisible man married an invisible woman. The kids were nothing to look at either.

I didn’t think the chiropractor would improve my posture. But I stand corrected.

I took my new girlfriend out on our first date to the ice rink, and entry was half price. She called me a cheap skate.

Studies show cows produce more milk when the farmer talks to them. It’s a case of in one ear and out the udder.

I used to date a girl with one leg who worked at a brewery. She was in charge of the hops.

My cross-eyed wife and I just got a divorce. I found out she was seeing someone on the side.

My wife claims I’m the cheapest person she’s ever met. I’m not buying it.

Did you know that a raven has 17 rigid feathers called pinions, while a crow only has 16. The difference between a raven and a crow is just a matter of a pinion.

Here’s the link:

Motorcycles are not included in the definition of ICE “new passenger cars and trucks” that will not be allowed to be sold after 2034.

However, once that oversight is discovered, motorcycles will almost certainly be included, or will be the subject of another Executive Order, with conceivably a shorter effective date.

This is only an Executive Order, without the force of legislation, although that can be easily rectified by passing such enabling legislation in next year’s session considering the existing progressive makeup of the Legislature.

It remains to be seen, however, if this unprecedented executive action is even legal given its probable conflict with the U.S. Commerce Clause, that grants Congress the power to regulate commerce between states, among many other applicable statutes and laws.

Lots may, or may not, change in the next 15 years!

And finally, Global Warming is a hoax, a scam.

SHOOTING AT A LARGE BIKER GATHERING-- in Waterloo, Iowa, leaves 1 dead, several wounded
The gathering of over 100 people from motorcycle clubs wasn't authorized, and police were trying to determine who had leased the building.

An Iowa gathering of over 100 people from motorcycle clubs turned deadly early Saturday morning with a shooting that killed at least one person and left several others wounded.

Police in Waterloo, a city about 55 miles northwest of Cedar Rapids, said they responded to a "shots fired report" at about 3:17 a.m at a site where the bikers were gathered.

Upon arrival, officers found about a dozen people who had been injured or shot, said Waterloo Police Chief Joel Fitzgerald at a press conference Saturday morning. It appeared that "some kind of confrontation" at the location escalated into a shooting, he said.

Paramedics and firefighters also responded to the chaotic scene, and many of those injured were taken to nearby hospitals, police said.

Of the eight people who suffered gunshot wounds, one of them died and another is in critical condition, said Fitzgerald. Four other people were injured by debris or glass and while fleeing.

Fitzgerald said the gathering wasn’t authorized and investigators are trying to determine who leased the building. Investigators are also trying to determine whether there was more than one shooter.

No arrests have been made in connection to the shooting. However, three people were arrested after officers responded to a disorderly conduct call outside the emergency room at a local hospital where some of the victims were taken, The Associated Press reported.

BANDIT’S EMAIL ADDRESS HAS CHANGED—Sorry for the confusion, but our email system started to fail. We tried to fix it, but no banana. We could have shifted to a costly system, but no one has the dinero, so we shifted back to our standards.

Mine is now At least it’s simple. Sorry for any inconvenience.


DIRECT FROM THE BIKERNET UNIVERSITY—The difference between Infamous and Notorious.

Infamous and notorious are commonly interchanged terms used to describe someone who or something that is famous for being negative in some way. While they can sometimes mean the same thing, there are subtle differences between the two terms. There are times when either will work, yet in other cases, one word is a better fit.

What does it mean to be infamous?
First recorded in the 14th century, infamous is an adjective rooted in the Latin infamis, “of ill fame.” We use it to describe a person, place, or thing known for “having an extremely bad reputation.” It can also mean “deserving of or causing an evil reputation, detestable.” Think Cruella de Vil, Voldemort, and your 11th-grade algebra teacher.

People, places, or things can also go down in infamy, getting a super bad rep as the result of a “shameful, criminal or outrageous act.” See also: Fyre Festival.

Remember, just because infamous has the word famous embedded within it doesn’t mean the two go hand in hand. Flipping a table at a family dinner may go down in infamy, winning you the reputation as the cousin with the temper. But, unless your family has its own time slot on Bravo, it won’t make you famous.

What does it mean to be notorious?
Similar to infamous, notorious is an adjective meaning “widely and unfavorably known.” Evidenced in the late 15th century, notorious originally meant “well known,” true to its ultimate Latin root, notus, meaning “known.”

When you say notorious and its noun form notoriety, it may be clear that they both start with not-, as in note, a word indeed related to notorious. Which makes it easier to remember that identifying someone as notorious is like putting a notice out on them.

So, what about notorious vs. notable vs. noteworthy?
Well, they are all close in meaning (due to that same Latin root), but there are subtle but significant differences among them.

The subtle differences between infamy and notoriety
Beyond being used to throw shade, like saying the Kardashians are notorious for drama, notorious can also mean “publicly or generally known, as for a particular trait.”

Jack Nicholson is notorious for always wearing sunglasses, a good example of the word being used without as many negative vibes implied.


EVENT NEWS--Ozark Moonshine Run
The Ozark Moonshine Run is without a doubt the most picturesque route in the Ozarks! The route encompasses parts of Scenic Highway 7 and winds through the deepest parts of the Ozark Mountains. Along the route you can expect to see magnificent views, ancient bluff lines, and the possibility of majestic elk grazing in their natural habitat.

Parts of the route make you feel like you have stepped back in time to a slower paced lifestyle. You will see many attractions along the way, so take your time and enjoy the scenery; but be careful of the many curves along this route. Some parts can be tricky and slightly dangerous.

Route Distance: 113 miles with 662 curves
Gasoline Locations: Harrison, Jasper, Mt. Judea, Deer, Compton
Time Frame: 2 hours, 52 minutes

Directions: Depart Harrison on Scenic AR Highway 7 South heading to Jasper. Travel through Jasper on AR Highway 7 to AR Highway 374 East on your left. AR Highway 374 will join AR Highway 123 where you will turn right. Follow AR Highway 123 through Mt. Judea (pronounced Judy) until it intersects with AR Highway 7 North. AR Highway 123 splits, so be careful to follow the route leading to AR Highway 7 North.

Follow AR Highway 7 North/Highway 16 to the intersection of AR Highway 16 on your left. Highway 16 will take you through the communities of Deer, Nail and Swain. AR Highway 16 intersects with AR Highway 21, where you will travel north into Boxley Valley. Through the valley, be on the lookout for elk that graze the fields and sometimes cross the highway. Follow AR Highway 21 to the intersection of AR Highway 43 North. AR Highway 43 North winds through Ponca and back to Harrison.

AIM EXPO CANCELLED FOR 2021-- “We have made the difficult decision to postpone the 2021 AIMExpo, the industry’s annual trade show, and while this wasn’t an easy choice it is certainly the right one,” says Cinnamon Kernes, VP and general manager, MIC Events. “With local directives limiting gathering size, travel restrictions, and a myriad of other obstacles created by the pandemic, there are too many unknown factors limiting our ability to create a safe environment that will also deliver the experience and ROI our exhibitors and attendees expect.”


FIVE REASONS TO to (still) Go To Biketoberfest--

REASON 1. Hotel rates are GREAT this year. Hotels prices are about half of what they normally are.

REASON 2. Suspension Technologies will still be there. What I am really saying is there will still be a lot of vendors there and you can touch and assess the quality of their products in person. Holding a product in your hand can tell you so much more than just the website information.

Click for more info.
Click for more info.

I specifically said Suspension Technologies because so many people won’t stop talking about how great their suspensions are. I’m one of them. Those unfortunate few friends I have… that haven’t made the upgrade already have appointments for the free installation at the Suspension Technologies’ booth at Destination Daytona.

A Harley tech did a check ride on my bike and he came out to talk to me when I picked up the bike. He was so impressed with the suspension he wanted to ask me about it. That is high praise indeed. This is someone who gets to ride about everything. He just felt it by riding the bike. He wasn’t aware before he rode the bike that I had done anything. It’s that noticeable. ‘Nough said.

The point is a lot of great vendors are still going to be in Daytona for Biketoberfest.

REASON 3. Willies’ Tropical Tattoo is still doing the best Bike Show in Daytona (again). It’s Thursday, October 15.

REASON 4. As far as Daytona events go, 99% of the time the October event has the best weather. Don’t blame me if this year isn’t a perfect dry, crisp 67-degree morning and warm in the afternoon but it usually happens.

REASON 5. You can safely keep your distance if you are concerned. The crowd size is down and with a bit of common sense you can attend the less crowded outdoor events in the outdoor germ-killing-sunshine. There isn’t any reason to go where you are aren’t comfortable. And there isn’t any reason to miss one of my favorite events.

FROM THE GEARHEAD DIARIES-- We won some money at the Casino in Vegas and after we bought this canvas print, we went over to my uncle’s house (just off the old strip). This was back in late 1978. I had my ‘69 long bed Chevy truck. Not enough room in the 2-seater cab of the truck, so in the bed of the truck is where the framed canvas went. We wrapped it up in blankets and sleeping bags and homeward we were bound.

We got to the top of the grade leaving Vegas, and snow started coming down. I got out to put on the chains, and they don't fit because the dessert duelers were too big and wide. So, slow we go off of the ridge grade back down to the valley floor toward Torrance. It wasn't long after that my wife and I were married and the canvas ended up in the attic for 30 years…

Easyriders Magazine Seals $30 Million Deal to Sell Bud to Bikers
Published April 22, 2020
By Randy Robinson
Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper would be proud.

One of America’s oldest and most iconic motorcycle magazines is officially jumping into the weed game.

On Tuesday, the new owner and president of Easyriders magazine, Pepper Foster, told WWD that he finalized a deal worth “well over” $30 million. The partnerships include Easyriders and two US cannabis companies — Oregon’s Big Top Farms and Tennessee’s Hemp2Lab — to make and distribute CBD and CBG products derived from hemp.

Easyriders’ products will include items like topicals, salves, tinctures, lip balms, and lotions, and each will bear Easyriders’ logos and gothic typeface, making these weed products the first (and so far, only) marketed directly to America’s biker community. Though, to be fair, there is a California-based weed brand named after the late Dennis Hopper, one of the stars of the iconic 1969 biker film Easy Rider. The movie’s title likely inspired the magazine’s name, given that Easyriders first hit the news presses in 1970.

Why is a biker magazine countersteering into the nation’s nascent cannabis space, though? First off, bikers were a crucial part of America’s early marijuana movement, toking, wheeling, and dealing herb across the US alongside the hippies, the beatniks, the street activists, and the rock ‘n’ rollers.

Second, the magazine’s revenue stream from advertisements got screwed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Facing bankruptcy just after taking over the magazine, Foster decided to expand Easyriders from a single print publication to an entire lifestyle brand.

According to his interview at WWD, Foster plans to roll-out the new Easyriders hemp products in the near future, particularly whenever these coronavirus lockdowns start to ease up nationwide. He’s currently looking at weed dispensaries, pharmacies, and high-end clothing and luxury stores to carry the Easyriders brand. But at the top of his retail wish-list revs the granddaddy of American motorcycles: Harley-Davidson and its 1,000 stores across the US.

“At the end of the day, the world has to go on, it’s not going to spin off its axis up into Pluto,” Foster said, referring to widespread business closures amid the COVID-19 crisis. “We’re gonna survive and, yes, things will change, but this magazine has been around for 50 years, and it will be around for another 50 years.”

“We’re setting the stage for this brand,” he continued, “a beautiful gem that’s just being polished.”

This was published in April, 2020 about five months ago. According to our sources, the deal never materialized. We hope something will work out. We will keep you posted.—Bandit


Twas the night before elections,
And all thru' the town,
Tempers were flaring
Emotions ran up and down.

I, in my bathrobe
With a cat in my lap,
Had shut off the TV,
tired of political crap.

When all of a sudden,
There arose such a noise,
I peered out my window,
Saw Pelosi and her boys

They had come for my wallet,
They wanted my pay
To hand out to others
Who had not worked a day!

They snatched up my money,
And quick as a wink,
Jumped back on their bandwagon
As I gagged from the stink.

She then rallied her henchmen
Who were pulling her cart.
I could tell they were out
To tear my country apart!

On Fannie, on Freddie,
On Schumer and Ayers!
On Acorn, on Waters
She screamed at the pairs!

They took off for her cause,
And as they flew out of sight,
I heard her laugh at a nation
Who wouldn't stand up and fight!

So I leave you to think
On this one final note...

Courage is being scared to death… and saddling up anyway.

WASHINGTON, D.C. - A federal judge approved a revised settlement in September between the U.S. Justice Department and Harley-Davidson Inc. over excess emissions. The revised settlement drops a requirement that the motorcycle manufacturer spend $3 million to reduce air pollution. In August 2016, Harley agreed to pay a $12 million civil fine and stop selling illegal after-market devices that caused its vehicles to emit too much pollution. The settlement resolved allegations that Harley sold about 340,000 "super tuners" that enabled motorcycles to pollute the air at levels greater than what the company certified.

MINNEAPOLIS - Polaris Inc. and Zero Motorcycles entered into a 10-year partnership as part of Polaris' rEV'd up initiative, which seeks to include an electric vehicle option in each of Polaris' core product segments by 2025. The companies plan to collaborate on off-road motorcycles and on snowmobiles. The first vehicle from the Zero-Polaris partnership is expected by the end of 2021. Zero Motorcycles has been designing and manufacturing electric motorcycles since 2006. Polaris produces Indian brand motorcycles, along with a range of ATVs and snowmobiles. In 2011, Polaris acquired both Goupil, a French manufacturer of on-road, commercial light-duty electric vehicles for the European market, and GEM, the street-legal passenger and utility electric vehicles. Four years later, the company acquired Brammo Electric Motorcycles.

BUENOS AIRES - Royal Enfield plans to open an assembly plant in Argentina, the company's first such venture outside its manufacturing facilities in Chennai, India. The Simpa Group facility will begin assembling the Royal Enfield Himalayan, the Interceptor 650 and the Continental GT 650. "This launch is a major accomplishment because it is the first time that a motorcycle manufacturer of this size has put its faith in Argentina," said Alberto Fernández, president of Argentina.

MILWAUKEE - Harley-Davidson has announced its decision to discontinue its manufacturing operations in India, at a cost of more than $75 million. The company is revamping its worldwide operations as part of a "Rewire" plan under new CEO Jochen Zeitz. The company also hired former Tyson Foods finance executive Gina Goetter as its new chief financial officer.

International News

LONDON - The Motorcycle Action Group UK opposes changes to the Highway Code that would result in a "negative safety impact" for motorcyclists, according to a report from the Federation of European Motorcyclists' Associations. In the United Kingdom, the Highway Code is a set of information, advice, guides and mandatory rules for road users. Its objective is to promote road safety. The Highway Code applies to all road users including pedestrians, horse riders, cyclists, motorcyclists and drivers.

While the proposed changes include additional protections for pedestrians, bicyclists and horse riders, there are no new provisions for improved motorcyclist safety. MAG UK said the proposed new rules and rule changes would actually increase risks, not just for motorcyclists, but for the cyclists and pedestrians that the proposals are designed to protect.
