Gassy Granny Joke of the Day


At school, Little Johnny’s classmate tells him that most adults are hiding at least one dark secret, so it’s very easy to blackmail them by saying, “I know the whole truth.” Little Johnny decides to go home and try it out.

Johnny’s mother greets him at home, and he tells her, “I know the whole truth.” His mother quickly hands him $20 and says, “Just don’t tell your father.” Quite pleased, the boy waits for his father to get home from work, and greets him with, “I know the whole truth.” The father promptly hands him $40 and says, “Please don’t say a word to your mother.”

Very pleased, the boy is on his way to school the next day when he sees the mailman at his front door. The boy greets him by saying, “I know the whole truth.” The mailman immediately drops the mail, opens his arms, and says, “Then come give your Daddy a great big hug!”

A Victory V92C frozen-American Durability


By James “Topfuel” Macecari
A Victory V92C TC frozen into a block of ice four years ago has been thawed and restarted with a battery being the only new part needed.
Perhaps even more impressive: the bike had more than 186,000 miles on the clock.
The Victory motorcycle had been purchased by Sweden’s Icehotel and frozen into a block of ice in 2011. After four years, however, the hotel decided to set the block of ice out in the sun and let it thaw naturally. (Source Biker News Online).

Can we say “Made in America”? The V92C TC 2002 spent it’s whole life as a “Shaker” bike. These are the type of bikes the R&D Departments use to put their products through every scenario they will face on the road. It already had about 180,000 miles on it when it went to the deep freeze.

Harley now has a rival stepping up to the plate, days could be numbered when Harley starts to lose some market share to Polaris. Polaris is making some good business moves in the market, especially buying up the Indian brand, time will tell if that was a good move or not. Harley does have a few things going for it, the company has a very big following of customers that are die hard loyal, it built this base with fantastic and targeted marketing. This is something that Polaris has yet to achieve or understand, in order to win over the Harley market, they have to keep putting out a quality product, but also have to attach a legacy to their product someone wants to be a part of.

Polaris has some time to achieve a good market, it took Harley over 100 years to build its brand, Polaris is the new kid on the block and will need to learn hard lessons over time. One lesson that Polaris failed to do right off the bat with the Indian Brand, they didn’t establish a good nationwide dealership network, secondly, they overpriced the Indian. Most of the Indian models you can just go buy a Harley equivalent and have the piece of mind knowing a dealership is right down the road if helps needed.The Indian Brand has been through many hands in the past, it’s a historic scooter, just no one knew how to match Harleys message. Right now Polaris is the best chance the Indian brand has, it’s now backed up by a company with the money to do something with it. Many Indian fans are hoping for just that, make the Indian great again.

Meanwhile, Polaris launched the Victory model in 99. It was something ugly at first and I would never give it a second look back then. When Arlen Ness came aboard with Victory the Jackpot was introduced, now that was an American Ride. Now in 2016 Victory went back to its roots and started making space ships, well that’s what they look like anyway. No one wants to be seen on something as ugly as the Cross Country, come on really? Polaris is only beginning it’s business and repeating mistakes it made right out of the gate, people want a great looking ride, something that will get them some tail, not something they will get them beat up.

The engineering is there, Polaris has a great name in Off Road, they need to stick the money into the Victory Brand redesigning it to compete for market share with Harley. Without seriously investing in the brand it will eventually fade out, that’s something that could happen in only a few riding seasons.

Kudos for the Ice Project, that surely shows what American Workmanship can accomplish. But to make it in the USA market and especially take on a giant like Harley-Davidson, you have to step up to the plate wanting to hit a home run with the customer base, not and single or double. That’s a half-ass attempt that will always fail.

Harley No Longer King : Company in trouble


Once upon a time, Harley Davidson use to be the mega force in the motorcycle industry. It was always at the top of the list for any respecting biker to want to own. To be in most motorcycle clubs, one had to have a Harley. A biker without a Harley wasn’t considered to be a biker but just some wannabee. All that has now changed. The once-mighty symbol of freedom and image has started to crumble. The company that used to be the king of the road is just a shadow of itself. The company has no one to blame but itself for its fall from grace.

Harley got to be where it was from those hard working blue collar workers, workers that went to work every day and busted ass just to be able to ride and raise hell on the weekends. Since the early 90s when the lifestyle started to change and different people, usually not a part of Harley’s core customers came flocking to the lifestyle, Harley took advantage of this new influx and started to raise prices. This was a serious mistake on Harleys part.Harley started to price out its core customer base and relied on a customer base that wouldn’t stick with the company for long.

In the early 2000’s shows like Biker Build-Off, Orange County Choppers kept Harley riding high. Shows like those brought customers who never considered riding before into the mix. The Chopper craze was in full swing and if you couldn’t afford one of those a Harley was the next best thing. Harley started it’s decline at this point I believe. Harley started to focus not only on raising prices, even more, they started pushing clothing and accessories as a bigger part of the company instead of staying focused on a better bike.

In 2006, most of the reality show started to go off the air and the recession was starting to loom. Those customers Harley relied upon started to get out of the lifestyle. Started selling off those bikes. The used market became saturated with all kinds of makes and models. That saturation continues till today. What happens when the used market becomes saturated with bikes? No one really wants to spend the 25,000 to get a brand new bagger. Shit, no one wants to spend 10,000 on a Sportster. When people don’t buy then production starts to be cut and people at the company get laid off.

Harley was lucky in its marketing. It had a loyal base from the Vietnam era that pushed an idea. If you were not riding a Harley then you were not a REAL biker. Some of that thinking still exist today but not like it use to be. The problem with that thinking is people started saying “If you’re on two wheels, who gives a shit what you’re riding”. I agree fully with that saying by the way. I got to that point when Harley started closing up factories here in the states and gave work to Mexico and India. When they started shipping production overseas the product suffered. Just look at all the recalls that have started just last year. Quality might as well be made if China.

Since the Old Scooter tramps are now moving onto other things in life a new generation has started to come up. That new generation has gravitated towards Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki, Indian and Victory. Why? Well, it comes down to those companies make a better product then Harley. Most have a better design and most important are way more reliable. No one likes being on the side of the road on a long haul because the ride they are on has design flaws.( Pictured below YAMAHA XV 1900 Midnight Star)

YAMAHAXV1900MIDNIGHTSTAR-783_2

I sometimes found it funny when old timers would say “Yea they might make Hondas in Ohio but the money still goes to Japan”. I would just shake my head and tell them “Well, at least, some of that money is going into a hard working blue collar American who is taking pride building that bike”. Yea that usually shut them up lol. It was even funnier when that same old timer called me a couple weeks later asking for a tow because he and his Harley were on the side of the road. “You were saying about Harley again?”

Don’t think I’m here picking on Harley. I own a 03 Soft tail. I also own a Midnight Star. I usually ride the soft tail around town and the Star on long hauls. My personal preference is the Star rides a lot smoother than the Soft tail and my old ass need all the comfort I can get.

What does this mean for Harley when companies like Honda, Yamaha, Victory start putting out better bikes then them? Simple the market share becomes smaller and smaller for Harley. (See Here). Harley is starting to literally fall apart according to their financials. The only bright spot for Harley has been its 550 and 750 models that mainly sell overseas. While Harley was raising prices and putting out some bad bikes over these past couple years the competition came in and swooped up that blue collar base that Harley turned it’s back

Do I think Harley will ever get back to it’s original core, customers? If they don’t I think they will be in the same spot they were in the 70’s. They will be facing bankruptcy and this time, won’t have a loyal base to bail them out. Harley miscalculated who would stick by them in the 90s and 00s. They also miscalculated that everyone in the lifestyle just needed to have that Harley to live up to the image. The new Image isn’t about owning a Harley to be a true Biker. The new image is “Just ride” and who gives a crap what you are riding.

Growing up 1%-A Sons account Part 1 of 3


Many of us grew up during a time when stuff was pretty dam hard. I grew up with 3 brothers in Chicago. Mother worked two jobs most of her life and my Father who would have a huge impression worked in a steel mill. Times were tough, we lived in a cock roach invested 3 bedroom apartment on the Northside of Chicago in a mostly Latino neighborhood. My pops moved to Chicago when he was 14 from Oceana West Virginia. He lived a hard and screwed up life. His father,my grandfather was an old school coal miner and the meanest drunk West Virginia ever seen. I can remember being told a story about my grandfather. One day he got on one of his drunking rages and beat my grandmother up. The cops were called to the house, my grandfather was waiting for the sheriff on top of a hill. Everyone knew each other back then since the town was so small. He said ” Listen up Mike, I have one bullet in this revolver for you and one for me. Make your choice”. Lets just say the sheriff let the situation cool off. Dam Grandfather was so mean the town showed up to the funeral to make sure he was dead.

I now know those days for my father haunted him. He was also a drunk. A mean one at that. He would give us a beating for just about anything. One of the biggest mistakes that we could make as boys was for him to catch us crying or loosing a fight. I remember one time the school called. Told him I’d been in a fight at school and got a bloody nose or some crap. He specifically asked “Did he win? Cause if not he has another ass whooping coming when he gets home”. Yea the threat of an asswhooping from him installed in me if I ever got into a fight I better dam well make sure I did everything I could to win it.

When I was about 10 my father and his friends started hanging around a motorcycle club in the area. When I turned 11 he was a full patched member and always out on the weekends. During the week after he got out of work he would be hanging with his brothers. It was always a point of contention with my mother. After a while she just accepted him being gone all the time. Shit it actually was a quiet time around the house and ass whoopings got lesser the more he was with the club.

When I turned 13 my pops started bringing me around all the guys. It was a sight to see, all those Harleys and Triumphs was an amazing experience. My favorite part of being taken around the guys as a huge Rotty named “Rex”. It was the security for the clubhouse. Mean ass mother he was, but he was as nice as could be too me. As the year went on my pops would bring me to the clubhouse more and more. I became close friends with another members son. We are still the closest of brothers till this day. One thing that didn’t matter was race. It was a white/latino club. Being in a Latino neighborhood I was able to get the biker culture from both sides.

14 was the first time I got laid. Yes It was my birthday and my pops came up too me and told me to hit the back room. The room is where the guys held all of their meetings. I thought I was about to get my ass whooped and didn’t even know why. My pops closed the door and said make me proud. About 10 minutes later a 25 year old stripper came into the room and my world was rocked. My ol my can I still remember that day like it was yesterday. We were in the room for about 30 minutes, I blew my cherry bomb and she left the room. About 5 minutes later I heard my pops yelling for me to get out of the room now. When I came out all the guys from the club were out in the bar area yelling up a storm and giving me the high 5. Talking about becoming a man that day, and even better all those people cheering you on for popping your cherry.

maxresdefault

Another big moment for me came when my pops got me a 1977 cb750 piece of shit when I was 15. Actually it was a frame and box of parts, couldn’t even call it a scooter because shit was everywhere and not assembled at all. “Here’s your ride, everyday after your chores and school I better see you putting this thing together.” He threw me a box of tools and I had at it. Man I remember I had no dam clue what I was doing. When I would ask my pops for help he smack the shit out of me and tell me if I could read I could do it my dam self. It took me a year and a half to get that bike up and running. I didn’t have nothing but a year and a half of busted up knuckles and pride with that dam bike lol.

By time I was 16 my pops was full time club member. Got rid of his steel mill job and told my mother he was finished. Couldn’t take the ragging any longer from her. I choose to go with my pops while my brothers chose to stay with my mother. My pops got a 1 bedroom house a few miles where I grew up. He had a stripper as a new ol lady, stupid bitch was high or drunk most of the time but she was cool too me. She was one of those broads that would make you shake your head every time she talked. I especially liked her because she would bring her friends over from the strip club all the time. Yea it was a high school kids dream let me tell you.

Tune in for Part 2 on Monday of the article which will talk about Hard Times for my pops and the club

Biker Bobs Joke of the Day


Biker Bob” walks into a bank and says to the woman at the teller window “I want to open a God damn checking account.” The astonished woman replies, “I beg your pardon, sir. I must have misunderstood you. What did you say?” “Listen up, God damn it. I said I want to open a fucking checking account now!” “I’m very sorry sir, but that kind of language is not tolerated in this bank.”The teller leaves the window and goes over to the bank manager to inform him of her situation. The manager agrees that the teller does not have to listen to that foul language. They both return to the window and the manager asks the old biker, “Sir, what seems to be the problem here?” “There is no God damn problem,” Bob says. “I just won 50 million dollars in the fucking lottery and I want to open a God damn checking account in this fuckin bank!” “I see, ” says the manager, “and is this stupid cunt giving you a hard time sir?”

Outlaw Life: A 1%ers Take


This past week the internet has been buzzing about the shooting involving the Mongols M/C and the Iron Order M/C. The internet is abound with people on both sides talking about what went down so I’d figured I give my 2 cents on the Outlaw Life. I think I have a leg to stand on since I’ve been living it for over 20 years. All you internet tough guys try to listen up, you young guns take note and learn something. What happened in Colorado is a trend happening all over this country. You have cops who since Hollister have rode the asses of every hard working blue collar man who ever decided to get together with his brothers and party their asses off after working all fucking week to support a family.

This new modern age of Bikers don’t know shit about what it was like starting in the 60’s all the way through the 80’s and 90’s. The harassment that men before all you new jacks had to deal with to get this lifestyle where it is today was done with blood,sweat and tears. Men served hard time for what they believed in cause some faggot cop got a hair up their ass because they thought these men were all criminals. In those days if you wore a patch you were a criminal and faced Rico laws just because you were apart of the club. It never mattered that you worked a job with 12 hour shifts 6 days a week just to earn a living. You still were beneath the cocksuckers and they were gods with a badge.

If any of you New Jacks notice on any of the threads. You have alot of tough talk going on. It’s real easy to do that from a keyboard in the safety of your own home. Yes it might make you feel strong and tough. It also makes you without honor and integrity. Only a true man (Forget even being a biker) stands toe to toe against someone to defend their beliefs.

I’ve heard time and time again from some fuck tards “This is a free country and I can wear what I want on my back”. Oh really I say? Did you stupid motherfuckers earn that rag on your back? Or did you buy it on the internet like some Iron Order Fuck? Did you put in the time with being kicked,beaten,run around like some fucking mule to earn the respect and love of your brothers? Do you fucks even know what a brother is? Is it some fancy cool name to throw around? Yea this is a free country. But did you spill your blood to earn the respect for the name you carry on your back?

1%ers. Yea the AMA gave us a gift when it said “99% of bikers follow the law”. No what it should’ve of said 1% of bikers don’t give a shit and want to live life under their own terms. 1%ers today because of your cops and media label 1% clubs all criminal. That’s one thing we didn’t accomplish as 1% clubs was to push back on that notion. Every dam organization has something or someone fucked up that is going to screw it up for everyone. Shit the Moose,Elks and those old time fraternities probably have more white collar shit going on then any 1% club I know. There lies the difference don’t it? White collar and Blue Collar.

So why did it become cool to act like a “Outlaw Biker” or try to carry that image? You middle age cum guzzlers fell for all that Harley Davidson advertising bullshit. You all want to go buy your nice little t shirts and 300 riding boots and hit the road for the image more then a lifestyle. Cops caught onto this propaganda bullshit and now they want to work 40 hours busting us and the other times being us. I have nothing against anyone wanting to get out there and burning through the asphalt on two wheels. Shit not even cops. But how can you try to act something your not? How the hell do you look at yourself in the mirror? A cop has to ask themselves if they are a real man if they can’t choose who they want to be.

You want to know why Iron Order is hated in the Club World? It’s a real simple answer. They have no idea what that patch they are wearing stands for. They claim to not want territory. Why the hell wear state or city rockers? Solve the problem and slap a United States Rocker on and be done with it. Another question is how the hell can you be proud of something when you didnt earn the shit? Mail order patches for clubs might as well be like ordering from Harley. The worse thing about Iron Order is allowing Law Enforcement into it’s rank with blue collar guys. How in the world do you let a LEO into your club? Them bastards have been busting scooter tramps for ages. They have their own Blue Brotherhood, You can bet your ass they wouldn’t let you be apart of that without a badge.

lifemag1

Another big question I get is “Why do 1% or the bigger clubs try to tell everyone what to do, who can wear what?” Dumbshits this is not done to try to show our ass or say we have the bigger dick. It’s because when one of you fucking SOA idiots go out there causing hell in a bar or rally the shit comes back on the 1%er clubs. The public automatically assume you twats are apart of the 1% club and we are the ones who get the fucking hassle. You knobs bring the unwanted attention to where it don’t belong. It’s that dam simple. What I think is clubs that just throw a patch on are punks, pussies with no balls. You would think it would be easier to do shit the right way and get brought into the mix with other clubs. The parties and people you get to meet are well worth the tiny bit of respect that is needed to just introduce your club properly.

Well if we go ask for permission we will be under that clubs thumb? Your a stupid fuck and moron if you think that way. 1%ers have their own brotherhood and all the problems that come with it. They sure the fuck don’t want to sit there and play boss to some other club. They sure don’t want to be brought into any bullshit crap another club pulls that can level a RICO Charge on them. It’s a simple respect thing because the 1%ers are the ones in the area that paved the way for you to wear that cut.

You want to know what a 1%ers life is like? It’s busting your ass at a job providing for your family and afterwards hanging with your brothers in the garage, working on scoots and talking shit about broads. It’s about partying it hard on the weekends and putting thousands of miles on the scooter until the dam wheels fall off. It’s about you becoming apart of that scooter and riding in rain or snow because without that bike you don’t have that identity. It’s about living your life by your terms and not societies, that don’t mean we are criminals but free spirits. We love our families, our brothers and club. Thats really the only thing that has any meaning to us. The lifestyle we built was based on that and that alone. We are not a fucking TV show, we don’t run guns or play town sheriff. Thats what our life is made of and you better believe we will do anything to protect the history of those who came before us and pass it on to the next generation.

Remember these things next time you throw a rag on. Remember these things when you think you have the right to piss on those who made this lifestyle the way it is for you. Remember it wasn’t you that had to put in the work.

Biker Bobs Joke of the Day


Bob and his ole lady are shopping in their local Wal-Mart. As usual Bob picks up a case of Miller Lite and puts it in their cart. ‘What do you think you’re doing?’ asks his ole lady. ‘They’re on sale, only $10 for 24 cans’, he replies. ‘Put them back, it’s a waste of money’, she demands, and so they carry on shopping. A few aisles further on along, she picks up a $20 jar of face cream and puts it in the basket. What do you think you’re doing?’ asks Bob. ‘It’s my face cream. It makes me look beautiful,’ Bob responds ‘So does 24 cans of Miller Lite and it’s half the price
