Club Black

OK, the boys at Wrench Monkees have done it again. I'm totally digging this Sportster.

They've dubbed it Club Back.

This low down Harley Davidson Sportster has a standard frame (albeit raked a little) engine, swingarm, rearshocks, front forks, and wheels.

However, the seat and seatcowl are custom from Wrench Monkees (Those seatcowls are truely their trade mark). The tank and handlebars are also WM design.

I love this angle. The Club Black boasts a 19" Firestone Deluxe front tire.

And it sports a 16" Firestone Deluxe rear. As well as an open, pant shredding chain drive. Absolutely killer!

Tarozzi footpegs seem to just blend into the bike.

The exhaust is a 2-into-1 WM creation, not to mention the custom paint.

Hey, can't afford a bike from Wrenck Monkees (like me)? Well, you can always get the T-shirt.

Sons of Anakin

I liked the TV show Sons of Anarchy before it became mainstream (now boasting over 5.5 million fans per episode).

I also rode a Harley well before the corporate chopper craze and shows like 'American Choppers' (starring Tweedledee and Tweedledum) made it uber popular. Thank God the recession took care of most (if not all) of the pretenders.

That being said, I'm somewhat intrigued to learn that fans of the show, will soon be able to ride replica SOA bikes, thanks to a deal with Bartels’ Harley-Davidson.

This is a pic of Tigs bike, a character in the show.

This is what they can expect. This Dyna was made by Chandler Harley-Davidson to resemble said SOA bike. There are too many differences to list, so I won't. Most 'fans' and those who ride on weekends will assume they're the same because of the faring. They'd be wrong.

OK, rant over. Bartel's will pump out 100 limited edition bikes that will sell for $25K USD. Yep you're paying an extra $5k - $7k for a fairing, sticker and name-plate (some would say that's the case with Harley's anyway).

The new SOA bikes will first go on sale in August in conjunction with the world’s largest motorcycle rally in Sturgis, South Dakota, just before the show’s fifth season premiere.

Not a fan of the show, well maybe this is more your style. Luke, I'm a biker!

Shut Your Möuth

So, I was searching for a review of the Motörhead show at the Sweden Rock Festival, when I noticed a number of other hits about snuff or chewing tobacco.

I thought what the hell is this? So I clicked on this link:

(click on pic for more)

Yep, in collaboration with one of the baddest bands in the world, Motörhead by Grov 'Shut Your Mouth' was released at the Rock Festival. The special tins and limited edition snus is a product of the major tobacco brand Swedish Match.

I guess Motörhead fans in the UK have been anticipating this release. I mean the more I looked, the more I realized the Internet was buzzing with rumors and speculation about this special edition snus!

Seriously!? Unbenounced to me Mikkey Dee, Motörhead's drummer is a snus user and has has been for years. Quote: "I love snus and have been using Grovsnus as long as I can remember."
Slash, the former lead guitarist of Guns N' Roses has recently quit smoking with snus as well. Not sure if he uses 'Shut Your Mouth'.

Like everyhting Motörhead, the snus by Grovsnus comes in a uniquely Motörhead designed tin. Killer, period.

No matter how you get your nicotine fix, you gotta admit... the fridge used for the official announcement would make a great beer fridge.

Here are the boys at the release party for Motörhead by Grovsnus, with Phil, Lemmy and Mikkey.

So just 'Shut Your Mouth' with Motörhead snus between your cheek and gum.

OK, this blew me away (insert terrorist bombing joke here). A Motörhead England T-shirt, in Arabic text.

The creator/designer is Deni Mulyana. I have a feeling Deni isn't licensed to sell nor produce this shirt. That being said, I think it's f#cking cool.

Chopper vs. Crotch Rocket

Ladies and dirtbags, I give you a prime example of age and optimism vs. youth and cockiness. So who do you think will win? I was skeptical until I saw the video evidence. 

From YouTube: Drag race between Hildo the owner & builder of a 25 year old Harley Rat bike Chopper and the owner of a 170hp+ Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade. This man has considerable experience racing circuits but this ain't no circuit! He was sure this race would be a piece of cake against this rolling piece of Harley crap, then things turned bad... Enjoy!!
