Movie Night: Thurs February 7th

Next Thursday. At Bandit's. I'll email everyone the address. You know the drill. 7:30 doors. 8pm movie.

The next flick is one I've seen already but and I'm stoked for the rest of the crew to check it out. It's from 2011 and it's about MotoGP racing. Ewan McGregor does the narration. Here's a link to my initial review of it.

There's no 70's muff for the Magician. There's no bulging biceps for Clean Cut. Sorry guys, next time around. I'd rather we mixed it up from time to time. Y'know, a homo Brit flick here, a crotch-rocket film there. Variety. ;)

Movie Night: Thurs January 24th

Rad poster. Rad bike.

This poster uses one of my favorite period typefaces, Cooper Black, so it gets my approval right from the get-go.

Last time we got together we watched a freakin great biker flick from 1971 about some 'Nam heroes. Well, this time we're getting together to watch another biker flick from 1971 about a 'Nam hero. We'll see if this measures up...

I've heard The Hard Ride is a good one...

Everyone's been emailed Clean Cut's address. Same as usual: 7:30 get together. 8pm movie. See you in a week.

Isle of Man TT Documentary

Here's an hour-long documentary on the 2012 Isle of Man TT. I'm pretty sure Marie and I are gonna go in 2014 when we visit Scotland. I'll bring you back a t-shirt. ;)

i dig this new Bell helmet

If anyone wants to chip in $250... my birthday is in May.
If they have it at the International Bike Show next month I'm gonna try it on at least. Looks like a good option for touring...

Movie Night: Thurs January 10th

This time we're making it over to Chief's house for Chrome and Hot Leather. 

This one's from 1971 and it's our first foray into the sub-genre of Vietnam biker flicks. It wasn't long before the film companies had to start creating hybrids to boost biker movie attendance. They started to dabble with Vietnam, blaxploitation, homosexuality, and horror. This one looks legit, though. Just look at that gang! Fucking awesome bikes.

Those with a keen eye will recognize Larry Bishop from HellRide and Marvin Gaye from...well, he's fucking Marvin Gaye and he rules. Anyway...

You know the drill. 7:30 order pizza. 8pm movie. I'll email everyone the address...

Let's ride!
