On the Ice

Catching fish before Thanksgiving!
It has been colder than normal, but it does have some perks!

Living Lost

I took some photos of Josh Kurpius's exhibit at the Harley Museum last winter. I didn't post them right away because I didn't want to ruin it for anyone that was going to see it yet. I have always admired Josh's work and it amazes me how he still remains humble and always has time to chat.  
There has been more than one time I've been at work, fixing bikes on a gorgeous day, and I follow Josh's journey across the country almost as if I were along for the ride, just from his pictures.

Ram Air?

Or Bullshit? I wanted to try it out on my sportster. So I hacked up a Heavy Breather I had laying around and made up a radius. Welded it together and hand finished it. 

So did it work? I put it on the dyno before we went to the track and it was down about 7-8% through the powerband. I don't know if it was weather related, if the motor was stronger when it was fresh, or because I had the slick mounted.
The bike ran nearly identical ET and MPH as it did a month or two earlier, actually a touch faster at 11.29.

So I don't think it hurt, but didn't see a significant gain there. More testing next season....

(Actual ram air probably doesn't occur until higher MPH)

Yo DJ!

I keep getting emails from these clowns that want to contribute to this blog. First off very few people even reads blogs anymore, and secondly if you have so much motorcycle related stuff to post, START YOUR OWN BLOG!!!

It must be a scam of some sort. Do any of you others get these emails inquiring about your blogs??

I even got one about testing Chinese leather jackets and shit if I would write about it on here. Take you're Chinese junk and send it straight fucking back!!
