Hooligans in the Bay Hooligans in the Bay

Bringing motorcycle racing to a new audience has been a goal of varying importance since the dawn of motorsport. Some of the biggest hurdles organizers and promoters run into is making the rules easy to understand, finding a nearby venue, and having more to do than just watch motorcycles go round and round. Roland Sands…

Industry Spotlight: Scratchboard Artist BOMONSTER Industry Spotlight: Scratchboard Artist BOMONSTER

Visual artists draw their power from what is added as well as what is not added. But in the medium of scratchboard art (called scrapeboard art in some countries), it has everything to do with what you take away. Scratchboard artists like Los Angeles-based-BOMONSTER use a clay board that is evenly covered with India ink. Using…

Flat Track Racing for Beginners Flat Track Racing for Beginners

Ever since I attended a Speedway in Costa Mesa, I’ve been attracted to flat track racing. The bikes are simple but fast (often built san’s brakes) and are relatively inexpensive to buy/build. Going fast and turning left seemed to be the only skills one would need to compete (so I naively thought) and if ya…

MotoAmerica Utah Motorsports Campus (Miller) Race Report MotoAmerica Utah Motorsports Campus (Miller) Race Report

I was confident going into Utah after getting my first Top Ten at a National at Laguna. However, I knew I’d have a disadvantage on the straits. I’ve mentioned a lot how my trap speeds were low in other posts and I’m getting sick of talking about that excuse so I’m not going to mention…

10 Days of Sturgis® Motorcycle Rally™ 10 Days of Sturgis® Motorcycle Rally™

I didn’t grow up in a motorcycle family. When I started working in a Harley dealership at 19 years old, I had no clue what, “Are ya goin to the rally?!” meant, or why it was such a big deal to people in Texas. Fast forward 8 years later, and three consecutive solo rides to…

A Shoestring Budget Road Trip to Sturgis! A Shoestring Budget Road Trip to Sturgis!

Spoiler alert: This story has a happy ending. The life threatening tumor in my wife’s brain never delivered. So now, the outlandish dream that we used to only joke about–riding to both Fuel Cleveland and Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in a 2 week road trip–is becoming a reality. Our 5 kids, stack of bills, and life’s…

Two Days in Joshua Tree Two Days in Joshua Tree

A couple friends and I decided we’d do a local road trip being as we were all short on time and cash. Southern California still is one of the best spots to ride and camp on the cheap so deciding where to go took a minute but ultimately we chose Joshua Tree. There are a…

Rob Gibson and The World’s Fastest Darkroom Rob Gibson and The World’s Fastest Darkroom

Every now and then a story comes along so fascinating I’m not sure I can do it justice. The story of Rob Gibson and the World’s Fastest Darkroom is one such story. It combines motorcycles with history, technical skill with artistry… all happening out in the real world instead of a studio or workshop. Rob…

Born Free 10 Born Free 10

Another year, another Born Free Show has come and gone. In it’s 10th consecutive year, the show was nothing short of impressive. Between the unheard of cool weather (and by cool, I mean mid 80s versus the standard 100 degree event temps), insane builds, vendors, and people watching, I’d say Born Free 10 was the…

Superbike Racing in the Monterey Hills Superbike Racing in the Monterey Hills

The FIM World Superbike race series comes to the US only once a year, but they pick the historic hills of Laguna Seca (now WeatherTech Raceway) to make sure they do it in style. Better yet, our national superbike series, MotoAmerica, shares the weekend with them, allowing America’s top guns to show off what they…
