This awesome sidecar began life as a 2004 Moto Guzzi Breva 750 with EFI, modern brakes and electronics. Mark modified the Breva to resemble a vintage Eldorado, The perfect combination for the cool looking vintage Duna sidecar. The original owner put on a leading link font end and side car tires which were an added $2000.00. Leading Link front end dramatically improves motorcycle side car handling. SEE ALL PHOTOS
I visit the Rez for a guided tour on THEIR favorite roads, I considered this an honor,
By Betsy Huelskamp.
Editors Note: The article was too long to put all in one. Part One is here, Part Two will be coming soon.
In a world that sometimes seems to be spinning out of control, I try to keep my daily focus on being truly aware of my surroundings, the signs and blessings each day brings, and to recognize and show appreciation for those gifts and opportunities when they present themselves. When two full blooded Navajo men, William Yazzie and his son-in-law Shaun Martin crashed Michael Lichter’s Art Show at the Buffalo Chip in Sturgis, South Dakota and came over and introduced themselves to me, I immediately knew I was in the presence of kindred spirits. But I had no idea the magnitude of the experience it was about to unfold.
Part Two will be revealed next week!

Mustang Seats has introduced the lowest, leanest seat in their line-up for the ’06-up Harley Dynas and ’08-14 FLs. “Our old school New England craftsmanship combined with 21st century design means your seat looks as incredible as it feels,” says Marketing Director, Marilyn Simmons. Taking everything Mustang has learned about seat design since 1980, incorporating technological advancements in the materials and adding in a state-of-the-art CAD-CAM center, R&D plotted the RunAround from scratch.
“Mustang believes that a well-designed baseplate is the key to success, so that was where the engineering team started,” she says. A narrow front width of just 9.5” for the Dyna (10.5” for FL applications) combined with the ultra low profile keeps the rider styling and profiling, according to Marilyn. “It is an entirely new design, not just a modified version of an existing seat,” she explains. “However due to Mustang’s seat pan design and our proprietary foam, running around doesn’t have to be a pain in the posterior.”
Made in-house at Mustang’s historic Three Rivers, MA facility, the controlled density polyurethane foam can be poured a little thinner without compromising the comfort, but making for a much thinner seat pad in the process. “The exact angle and density of each seat foam panel is formulated and cast to be soft enough for comfort, but resilient enough to retain its shape and structural integrity for years.”

Riding on three wheels has never been cooler.READ FULL STORY
This shop project began as a basket.

Gaylord Street rests on the west side of Long Beach, California, a bunched industrial community of little stucco shops, cinder-block buildings, even a small home or two, and oil refineries next to the Port of Long Beach. It’s the low rent district.
There’s an unmarked shop next to a blacked-out iron gate very close to the end of Long Beach proper, the largest city in Los Angeles. McQuiston’s Custom Cycles is definitely on the outskirts of the city, but it’s packed with projects. Ryan McQuiston loves choppers. “But everyone wants to build bobbers these days,” he says.
Ryan has his own code of the West. He loves building motorcycles with his shop mouse, cute Oginee (she works as hard as any of the guys). It’s not about the money; it’s about helping a brother or sister hit the road in rustic style. “Nobody has any money,” Ryan said.
We like to surf the web like any of you, and we always enjoy sharing with you the best things we find. This is definitely one of them. Born Loser runs a cool blog and posted this video below.
The footage, interviews and the feeling captured was right on the money. If you missed the show this is as close as you will get. Enjoy!
Skully today announced a new financing option for its highly anticipated AR-1 helmet. Preorders for the smart helmet began August 11, 2014 to critical acclaim. In 45 hours, Skully became the fastest funded Indiegogo campaign to reach $1 Million.
“While the initial response to Skully has been overwhelmingly positive, we’ve also listened to members of our community who desire an AR-1, but can’t afford to pay the full price of the helmet up front”
Now, in an effort to make the AR-1 accessible to even more motorcyclists, Skully has unveiled a deposit program that will allow consumers to put down a $499 deposit followed by a second payment of $949 to be paid when the helmet ships. The financing option is available until September 10, 2014.
