Alex Higgins is doing something I’ve never seen before - he’s putting legit tattoos on leather seats. His process allows the leather to hold and seal in the ink and the results are great.

Chris over at BikeExif just sent me a copy of the calendar he recently put out and it is absolutely beautiful. Gorgeous photos of incredible bikes from the likes of Wrenchmonkees, Deus Ex Machina, Falcon and many more. It’s no secret that I’ve been a long time fan of the BikeExif style of bloggery, so it should be no surprise that I’m stoked on this. Great X-mas gift and all that. On sale right now for less than $14, that’s worth it for the wall art alone.

The guys at Biltwell are at it again and thank god for that. There newest endeavor - Chop Cult - is a website dedicated to D.I.Y motorcycle community. I’ve been lucky enough to get a slight sneak behind the scenes of what they’re planning, and all I can say is you will be stoked. So what is it going to be like? This is what the guys have to say about it:
There’s nothing to see at ChopCult.com yet, but when we launch the site this summer, ChopCult will be the first news magazine, blog feed, photo dump, public forum, online classifieds, social network and e-store for people and companies who build and ride custom motorcycles. All kinds: American, Japanese, British and European. Think your favorite message board without the content Gestapo, Newsweek without the politics, Myspace without the sex predators, Flickr without the nature shots, Craigslist without the retards and Google without the Viagra banners. Just cool people, old bikes and lots of ‘em.
Go sign up for the newletter because you’re going to want to be in the know about this. I’m real glad these guys are jumping into the fray of this online community/forum/blog/photo thing because as they’ve proven before just how well they “get it”.

Trent from Atomic calls Gary “the wizard” - I fully support that title. When it comes to motorcycle shots, Gary pretty much tops my list - yes, even more so than ML, and I dig Mike’s stuff a bunch. Gary has a blog where he posts all sorts of motophoto-goodness. Check it out here: www.goodluckphoto.blogspot.com
He’s got a book coming out called Idle Hands, so if you can, make sure to support it by picking up a copy.
Tomorrow marks the 1-year anniversary of the weekly podcast done by our pal Ken over at Biker Radio Magazine. Many congrats go out to Ken for not only putting out a killer show for free download, but also to sticking to it and getting it done every week for a full year. Putting out something like a podcast - week in and week out - is a lot harder than folks give credit to. Even when it’s a labor of love, it’s taxing when your trying to juggle family life, work life and balancing everything else we’re all trying to get done. I’ve been real psyched to be a part of BRM this past year by contributing a few editorials, it’s been a great time and many thanks to Ken for letting me jump up on my soapbox during his show and throw down some greasebag gospel. If you haven’t checked out BRM yet, head over to bikerradiomagazine.com and start downloading, you can also subscribe to the podcast through iTunes, which makes life super easy. It’s free to download and the content is killer - from Bonneville to drag racing to welding, electrical and paint - Ken covers a broad range of topics. The shows might not always be in line with what Knucklebuster is all about (the bagger show comes to mind), but the content is always smart and informative. You’ll be familiar with quite a few of the guys that Ken interviews too - Fab Kevin, Wes White, Tigman, Goldhammer, Yosemite Sam, Hammer, Edge and the interview he did last week with Sugarbear is killer. Go check out what Ken’s got going on and support BRM because it’s these grass roots projects that really help keep the scene alive.
