Urban enduro...

The other night as I was getting all lit up at the bar I had an epiphany, a moment of clarity if you will. I decided I wanted to help contribute to the sleepy, boardering on lame motorcycle scene here in madison. But what to do? Another bike show with hand made, sharp edged trophies? ugh. Bike night at quaker steak or boularvard lanes? puhleeese bitches. Then I came across this and saw the light. The dudes in Portland just do it right. An urban enduro. A set course on all legal streets and alleys. No prizes, speed limit and laws enforced, but a challenging ride. A muddy ride ride. All bikes welcome and encouraged, but can not be afraid of getting them dirty.
These pics are from Portland.

And another thing

At the last DPR drunk-fest in my garage, someone asked what paint I used on the GS gastank and if it was gas resistant. The answer is this stuff and yes.

Your opinion is valued

What do you think of these Honda VTR1000 Superhawks?

wish list.

I hate the 15 second advertisements in front of videos nowadays, it feels pretty gross, but this one is worth the wait...

Apparently this was the guy's touring bike, then his Baja pre-runner, and then his Baja race bike too.

RedMax Speed Shop

is a UK based bike shop, they flat and dirt track race. Recently they put up a post for a impromptu, for fun, design their new AJS tracker contest. They provided the pic of the white bike. My interpretation came from several cans of Point beer and a trip this past fall to San Francisco. I really don't expect RedMax or AJS to like it, but I'd rock that sucka proud...

RedMax Speed Shop is RIGHT HERE

this is the inspiration pic, btw...

mocked up...

Just need to drill a couple holes and secure it with something other than zip ties.
Tail section is off of a 77 KZ650. Goes well with my suzuki bars and Puch headlight.

spring fever...

I haven't figured it out...

...why I like Bultaco's so much. Maybe its just the name. I love tacos. And dirt bikes. And 2-strokes. I'm indifferent about bulls.

If you have ever tried skating in the rain, it's really not this easy..

new cut...

heh, litterally. I cut up an old joe rocket jacket (with back armour) painted it black and then added the dpr. Winter is really getting to me...

This is the jacket I was wearing when my chain snapped and whipped me in the back at 45 mph, it saved me some serious bummage that's for sure..

Still need to seam up the new arm holes...

if you're in Wisconsin

Please pledge to recall Scott Walker by clicking this link. A governor must serve 12 months before he can be recalled, and the petition can't be started for another 8 months, but then they'll have about 60 days to collect 540-some-thousand signatures to make it happen. This pledge will just make it easier to get done, and you'll be contacted when it's time.

Nothing like an R1 out in the woods, somewhere deep in Germany.
