Iron Butt
3:00 A.M. and the alarm begins its obnoxious sounding and I am awakened to the day of days. This is the morning I have chosen to finally complete my Iron Butt run. Everything has been prepped, the Bike has fresh oil, I have spare money in the bank for gas, I have the time off work scheduled, and I have checked the weather and I have a perfectly clear window...

Lucinda - Popping that Cherry Part 2 - by Lost MC Goon

Thinking Around the Box: CRAP! The box broke By: Shaun -Scrapyard- Kelly
What's next? How do we continue with the current state of fighterdom and the custom scene as a whole? Do we look to the past and go retro? Do we try and press on with even more over the top innovations? Or do we all sit stagnant and keep feeding off the same ideas for another 10 years until they all look the same?

Chasing Unicorns By: Lost MC Goon
SHow many of you out there have ever seen the remake of “Gone in 60 seconds”? Poor Memphis Raines chasing his unicorn, his unachievable bike. In the movie you will remember that unattainable dream was named Eleanor. I wonder, just how many of us out there have chased a unicorn, how many of us have that unattainable bike?
