Wheelie Bagger

Pulling off a good wheelie on a motorcycle is not an easy thing to do, but can be accomplished with time and practice. However pulling off an extended wheelie on a full-dress Harley-Davidson bagger? Well, that’s another story entirely. You see these suckers can weigh upwards of 700 pounds, so hoisting, and then keeping that front wheel skyward is no easy task. The guy in this video though, this guy makes it look like a complete walk in the park. Click through and check it out.

Harley Davidson & the Marlboro Man (NSFW)

Harley Davidson And The Marlboro Man

1991 was a pretty good year as far as I’m concerned. You see back then you could still by a performance car that didn’t track your every burnout via computer, Times Square in New York City still had some shady spots, and movies like “Harley Davidson & the Marlboro Man” were in theaters. The 1990’s were young and wide open and so were everyone’s ideas about the new millennium that lay only 9 short years away. There was no real internet so to speak of and cell phones, thankfully, were in their infancy. So… why is this important? It’s important because it was one of the last times in history when I can remember going to the movies because I wasn’t glued to a computer screen. After that, work and responsibility started and lets just say that life hasn’t been the same since. Click through and watch one of the greatest movie openings in 1990’s history.

Oh, and by the way, it’s NSFW, so if your bashful just move along…

Psst… Wanna Buy A Test Track?

Posted in Cool Stuff, DIY, driving, Harley Davidson by Kurt Ernst | September 9th, 2011 | Leave a Reply |

Buried deep in the wilds of Collier County, FL, is a test track that backs up against the Everglades. To call it “remote” and “inhospitable” is like calling the Mojave Desert “sandy”; you’re guaranteed to have alligators, snakes and mosquitos, but you’re also guaranteed that you won’t have too many pesky neighbors to worry about. The location made the track ideal for hot-weather testing, which is why Ford originally built the facility. Ford sold it to Harley-Davidson, and Harley is now looking to divest itself of unneeded real estate. If you’ve got the $7.5 million asking price, the test track can be yours. Read More…

Motorcycle Cop May Be The Best Rider I’ve Ever Seen

Posted in Cool Stuff, Harley Davidson, Motorcycle, Police, Videos by Kurt Ernst | July 23rd, 2011 | 1 Response |

I’ve always said that motorcycle cops are some of the best riders on the planet. Their training course, in virtually any department, is among the most challenging things you can do in law enforcement. These guys throw around 700 pound Harleys like they were scooters, and their low-speed bike handling skills are second to none.

This video comes from a recent “rodeo” event in Grand Prairie, TX. I’ve been riding for a lot of years, and I’ll say this flat out: I doubt I could run the course without hitting a cone on a 250cc bike, let alone a full size Harley. I know for certain that I couldn’t match this guy’s time, no matter what I was riding. Despite the comments at the end of the video, a single training course won’t have you riding like this: what you see here takes years of practice, and a lot of low speed crashing. Read More…

Why We Ride: Rolling Free

Rolling Free

Having logged over 100,000 miles in the saddle of various motorcycles, I can tell you that if I had one way in which to travel that this would be it. Those that don’t ride will never understand the feeling of freedom, exhilaration and pure connection to the road that riding offers. The fact is that most people are afraid of motorcycles. They hear of horrid accidents and think that most riders have a death wish, when in fact it’s totally the opposite. Ever hear the phrase, “Live to Ride, Ride to Live”… well, it’s 100% true. Motorcycles make you feel alive. They bring to light every sense in your body and offer an almost out of body experience when your cruising down the road on that perfect sunny day. Sure there’s an element of danger in riding, but hell, that’s part of the fun. If you’ve never ridden a motorcycle then please do yourself a favor and try it just once. If you don’t like it, then fine, however don’t simply dismiss it because of what others say as you’ll be missing out on one of the greatest experiences of a life time.

Nascafe Racer

Shaw Harley-Davidson in the UK has earned the prestigious title of best UK dealer 6-times. They pride themselves on service, custom building and customer support, and to celebrate this they wanted to build a motorcycle that was a representation of their commitment to excellence. Their goal was to team up with master watchmakers Bell & Ross, as Shaw Harley-Davidson viewed them as the personification of performance, precision and engineering. The bike gained its inspiration from the Bell & Ross BR01-94 Carbon Fiber Chronograph. Once devising a plan the professional speed shop at Shaw HD literally built the bike around it.

Glasgow Kiss: One Bad-Ass Bobber.

Posted in Custom, Featured, Harley Davidson, Motorcycle Rides, Other Rides, Rides by MrAngry | February 5th, 2011 | 5 Responses |

I’ve never been huge into custom choppers, in fact I think most of the ones out there roaming the streets are completely hideous. Gaudy paint jobs and mass amounts of chrome generally ruin what are otherwise beautiful cruising machines. Sometimes however a bright spot shows up and when that happens I feel that I must bring it to everyone’s attention. This drop dead stunner is called the “Glasgow Kiss” and it was crafted by one Robbie Kerr, owner of Kootenay Motorcycle Art in Canada. The inspiration for this mad machine came from Robbie’s love of the 1945 Harley Davidson Flathead. His goal was to craft a new age interpretation of that machine complete with a unique feel and modern performance.

RSD Cafe Sportster: The Bike Harley Should Have Built

Posted in Harley Davidson, Videos by Kurt Ernst | January 27th, 2011 | Leave a Reply |

RSD Cafe Sportster

When Harley-Davidson launched the Sportster line in 1957, it was the baddest bike on the block. Nothing on this side of the pond went as fast or handled as well, which helped to solidify Harley-Davidson as the bike to have if you were serious about riding. Even the legendary XR750s, which dominated flat track racing for decades (and were Evel Knievel’s bike of choice) were based on the Sportster, so the bike has probably racked up more race wins than any other model. Over the years, public perception of the Sportster has dropped off, and I once overheard a biker-wannabe tell his young son, “You don’t want that. It’s a girl’s bike.” So much for a legendary reputation. Read More…

Fast Attack AG presents “The ONE”.

The One by Fat Attack

Truth be told I’m not a huge Harley-Davidson fan as I always thought of them more as rolling couches, then I did actual motorcycles. It’s not a slight on the brand in any way, it’s just that I like my bikes to be a little more performance oriented. There are however those bikes out there that make me question my feelings towards the brand. Take this amazing creation from Swiss bike builder Fast Attack AG for instance. Dubbed “The ONE”, this beautiful machine was the brain child of Fast Attack’s head honcho Urs Erbacher, and was built to showcase their stellar craftsmanship. One look at this machine will tell you that it was built to not only turn heads, but to perform as well.

Specifically, a cusomized V-Rod. Photo: Harley-Davidson

When you’re famous and work to promote motorcycling to women, Harley-Davidson will style a bike any way you want it. Fitness guru and TV star Jillian Michaels recently worked with Harley-Davidson’s Willie G. Davidson Styling Studio to come up with the design for her custom built V-Rod, seen above. The bike sports polished engine cases, an orange motor, a custom seat, revised bodywork and Reactor wheels. There’s no word if Harley-Davidson tweaked the intake, exhaust or cams, but even in stock form the V-Rod is plenty entertaining.
