It's Going to Be a Helluva Year

Hang On another year is screaming at us.
I could talk about all the new things flying at Bikernet. We are changing the format some, trying to slow down and hoping for the best. If you’re not a Cantina member please consider joining.

We are also husltling on the Salt Torpedo, our next Bonneville effort. I hope to launch another report tomorrow morning. We may be working on two books next year and still contributing to Cycle Source.


But beyond all our projects, the MRF has a serious list of goals for 2019 to keep motorcycling strong. I always ask that you join a Motorcycle Rights Organization, national or local, just join and support for our future.

The President of the United States has major goals ahead of him. Some folks don’t like him, but I believe he’s working very hard for us. I watched a debate on immigration last night. It was fascinating. Unfortunately our media doesn’t portray the issue like the experts do, so we think there’s something wrong with any immigration effort, but that’s not the case at all. And where our government hasn’t had the balls to step up to this issue, the President does.

Here’s my set of goals for our government and the President. Each one would change our lives substantially for the better, but will anyone step up? Let’s see:

Tort Reform: We need to reduce our sue- happy society. Unfortunately our government is run by attorneys. Probably won’t happen. If it did our wages would increase, jobs would increase and profits would increase.

TSA: The TSA has ruined our travel experience and cost taxpayers billions every year for a bucket full of pocket knives. There are technologies available, which would eliminate this intrusion into our lives. I don’t want all these guys and gals to lose their jobs and I have a plan for a very positive outcome.

And finally, another major effort, that should have been addresses 30 some years ago: Infrastructure for a growing population. We need more and doubled-up roads. They want to blame everything on Global Warming when the earth is cooling and we experience fewer storms. But they don’t want citizens to drive comfortably to work. It’s backwards, but what the hell I’m left-handed. Maybe that’s why I dream of a better country for our hard-working tax paying citizens.

Let’s hit the news and work for a better America, riding free and Bonneville Records.

We hope you have an amazing time with loved ones on this beautiful Holiday.

This was the best family photo we could capture of all eight adults, a 9-month old, six dogs, and four horses. Talk about hectic!

I received the new prototype and it seems great to me. It’s wide enough and long enough… I didn’t have any problems staying covered and I am an active sleeper. I want to keep the prototype until next week because I have a girl coming here… that can model with it... and I will take pictures. Then I will send it to you for approval.

PETERSEN MUSEUM ACTION--Auto-Didactic: The Juxtapoz School
Armand Hammer Foundation Gallery

Prior to the introduction of Juxtapoz Magazine, artists working within a variety of genres outside of the mainstream tastes of the fine art world were often marginalized by reigning cultural institutions, if not completely ignored. Auto-Didactic highlights the works of a few of these artists with roots in automotive culture. Challenge your perceptions with this compelling display!

THE IMMIGRATION BLUES--Illegals, a history

The American People have very short, selective memory. For those that still have a memory, I think that you will find this most interesting and educational.

FEW HAL ROBINSON’S LEFT—We still have some limited edition prints and T-shirts available. The Easyriders Empire told us we couldn’t sell Hal’s work so we are forced to shut down this effort, but we have some time before I’m shackled and dragged to the Paisano Publication’s dungeon.

Don’t knock on the gate. I may not answer it.

DID YOU KNOW ABOUT THE MOON—It causes global warming and the earth’s spin because of the gravitational pull. Unfortunately every year is spins slightly farther from the earth and the gravitational pull decreases. In a billion years we will quit spinning so fast and start to wobble. We’ll be fucked. But your mom’s SUV or your gas-powered chopper won’t have anything to do with it.

LIGHT UP THE NIGHT WITH NEW H-D TECHNOLOGY-- Increase visibility at night, in hard weather conditions and even in daylight with the 7 in. Daymaker Adaptive LED Headlamp (P/N 67700426 or 67700427, $849.95*).

The 7-inch Daymaker™ Adaptive LED headlamp combines advanced motorcycle headlight performance with modern styling. The projector-style LED offers superior punch and spread with a pure white light that produces a “Daylight Color Impression” that appears more natural to the user and is conspicuous in traffic. The signature LED light outer ring operates as a position lamp.

The most-advanced headlamp system ever developed for a Harley-Davidson motorcycle utilizes patented sensors and electronics integrated into the headlamp to determine lean angle of the motorcycle and automatically projects additional light into corners to illuminate areas of the road that may be unlit by traditional LED headlamps. Extensive engineering and testing was completed on the lamp to ensure every part of the road in front of the rider is equally lit. The adaptive light feature works in both the high- and low-beam functions.

The night-time beam pattern is focused on the road ahead and is engineered to reduce wasted light that can impact oncoming traffic. The solid-state LEDs are designed for long life and low energy draw, and installation of the shock and vibration-resistant lamp assembly is quick and easy with a plug-in connection to the factory headlamp wiring.

The 7-inch Daymaker Adaptive LED headlamps feature a top-mount low beam, a large bottom-mount projector high beam, two additional D-shaped lenses, an outer signature ring and 12 adaptive lights and is offered in Black or Chrome finish. It fits 2009-later Touring models (except Road Glide), 2012-2016 Switchback™ and 2004-2017 Softail® models with a 7-inch headlamp. DOT and ECE compliant for all markets.

I got one for the Salt . Put the old bikernet pan with that old '60 vintage Ford truck. Take a photo with the Pan in the back of the truck. Advertise it as a package and see what pans out. Yuk,yuk a pun . It might be worth the trouble. Somebody from the South Bay area might bite on that hook. Throw some signatures on everything and tell all that it is for the sponsor money for the Great Salt Flat race .

Editor Response Terrific sponsorship notion. I'm scrambling to find sponsorship funds, another truck and trailer.
This is great, I’m looking forward to seeing your rag every week.
