Movie night Thurs April 14th

This looks awful, so we're totally watching it next! It touts a hyperbolic tagline set in Cooper Bold and has a swazi and iron cross on the DVD cover so I fully back it already. I'm in.
What the hell are we gonna eat this time? I think we've exhausted unique ethnic cuisine... Depending on the weather this might be the last movie night this season so maybe finish it up w/ a 2nd round of pizza?
Btw, if people can all make it on a Wednesday we could do that instead. What's your take on Wednesday April 13th?

This looks fun

Saw this on Autoblog today. When's wheelie-practice-day?
Something tells me the Bandit will be doing endos before anyone else is doing wheelies...

The Season has begun!

I took the bike out last night to Buddy's Pizza in Farmington Hills. Cruised down the Lodge. Felt great to be on the damn bike again. Ate some greasy pizza that didn't sit too well in my stomach. Took 696 back at 11pm. Did the ton and kept it fast for the ride home to take my concentration off my cold nuts and onto where I was going. Good times.
I'm gonna buy some synthetic riding pants, lined jeans or some sort of synthetic chaps, though. I'd stretch the season if I could just keep my bones warm. I see heated gloves and vest on the horizon... Fall trips will be more enjoyable and we can miss the crowds of summer riders. Woo!

Movie Night Tues March 29th

It pains me dearly, but I'm gonna switch it up from the 60's biker b-movies and view On Any Sunday after Easy Rider this week. We'll switch it to a Tuesday. This one's a classic and it'll be my first time viewing it. I know Nick is a fan. If you can think of a cuisine to try, make a suggestion...
And fear not, we'll get back to the 60's b-movies after this, maaaaaan.

Another 5 day trip idea

It's 750 miles away or so, I think. Alabama. We could knock it out in a 5 day trip. More specifically, we could go down for the festival maybe?

The Italian Job 1969

We need to ride this road. That's all there is to it.

Glory Stompers

I, err, was "inspired" by the Glory Stompers and came up with this flyer for a Hellmouth show in March. We're playing at Oakland University on Monday the 28th. It's a free show with our friends in Beast and the Field and Against the Grain. I have no idea what it's going to be like, but we'll be in good company so whatever. Any excuse to see BITF and rip off a biker poster is alright by me. 

New Triumph Detroit opens Sat March 26th

The new Triumph dealership location should have its grand opening on Saturday March 26th. They're moving from their current location all the way up to Van Dyke and 23 Mile. Booooo. But it's a 7000 sq ft building with more room for bikes, merch, and repairs, so that's tight. If the weather's alright I'm down to ride up there, but I'll drive ye olde Element up there regardless.

EDIT (3/9/11): I just realized that's the same day Hellmouth is playing in Cleveland. So I doubt I'll have time to go on Saturday. It might be a Sunday thing if I can do it that weekend. I'll play it by ear. I'll be out in London, Ont, the night before so I know I'll be sleeping in on Saturday. No early ride for me.

Lot Lizard


The Bandit sent me a link to this bike. The balance and proportions are just perfect on this thing. It's like if the ancient Greeks were to build a motorcycle or something. Just perfect. Love those wheels.

Tunnel of Trees

I chopped up a helmet-cam video that the Bandit shot from our ride in the Tunnel of Trees last Fall. Unfortunately, I couldn't get the other angle (from my bike looking back) into iMovie, so we've just got the Bandit looking forward. But whatever, it's still better than a kick in the nuts...

Movie night Thurs March 17th

I'm switching the next one to Thursday b/c the Bandit is leaving for China tomorrow and wont be back till afterwards anyway. We'll do the one after this on a Tuesday so the Bandit can come out and regale us with stories from his homeland.

Thurs the 17th will be Easy Rider, so bring your dimebags and LSD...
Maybe get some soul food from Irene's on 8 mile this time?
