WAYYYY BEYOND MO-VEMBER


Gotta grow mine...

USA part 2






After NYC, we went onto LA and OC. Here's a couple higlights of the trip :
-Got to meet Ray Barbee at Johnny's house. There were just 10 of us at the house having dinner, a few drinks and Ray was jamming. Coolest guy on earth by far !!!
-Saw Ricky The Dude, he rode his bike to the office. I'm bummed I didn't get to spend more time with him though... His bike is badass.
-Went to Moore's Cycles and bought new headlight and a Lucas style tail light for the TR5. Keith is dope ! Wise old man with plenty of good advice.
-Just made it to GLORY. Always nice to see what they have on their shelves.

Now time to put those new parts on the TR5...

USA part 1



I was on a work trip in NYC and LA for the last 10 days. Had a great time in the big apple. Managed to hit a few cool stores and get smashed at Max Fish, coolest bar/stiffest drinks !

EVO PART 1




This is Axel's bike which is in the middle of a facelift.
I just got the pictures sent today and main changes so far are : new gastank, new Avon tyres , narrowed fender, narrowed fork, struts... It's gonna look real sweet once everything is back on there.
Gonna have to start spending a bit more time in the garage to changes a few things on the Triumph.

VW WET DREAM





I am not the biggest VW enthusiast, but I like old stuff in general. I recently made a trip to a tiny little village in the middle of nowhere, France to pick up my Triumph. Through a friend of mine, I got in contact with a guy who imports VW's from the US and he said he could put my bike inside one of his vans and ship it over. Great idea 'cause it meant the bike would stay nice and dry for the trip. Anyway, when arrived at this dude's place after a 3 1/2 hour drive I was blown away by the amount of cars he had in there. The guy was super mellow and didn't look like much. Buthe sure knew his gig. He is selling them all over Europe and has some cool stuff in there.
Of course, then I started my bike and forgot all about these VW's.

CHERRY TRUMPET





One hell of a stylish pre unit custom ! No need for hard tail on one of these ...
I considered puting a bolt on hardtail on my TR5 for a while and then I gave up the idea. I find this kind of look better and better every day.

MIKE V


Mike V, celebrity fan of the Ducks, got a little defensive when some dude tgets his hands on the stick that Scott Niedermeyer tried to give to Mike's daughter.
Someone steals from your daughter, they get what they deserve. Family first...Mike doesn't fuck around.

TR5 ARRIVED


After 2 months on a boat, it has finally arrived. Had to drive 7 hours to go get it but it was well worth the drive.
I got home late at night and had to wait the next morning to start it up. A few kicks and the engine started without a problem. I drove straight off to work with it. I had a smile for the rest of the day. It runs smooth and makes the sweetest noize. I guess my wife will see a little less of now.

MORE CA




After visiting Moore's I drove up to LA to check out Garage Company and look for some parts. I got lost like a first time tourist, it pissed me off but that feeling disappeared when I got there. Sick place, cool owner and I found a N.O.S. white Pillion seat for my TR5 which will match my white solo seat . So stoked !
I'll go back there with a bigger budget next time...

MOORE'S




I had half a day off from work and took the time to go visit Moore's cycle center today. What a spot, and Keith Moore is the coolest guy ever. He really took his time to show me around the shop and chat about the beauties he had in the back of the shop.
