Video: Hitler Wants A Gixxer (For His First Bike)

Most of us are familiar with the Hitler video meme wherein the english subtitles are changed to humorous banter completely unrelated to the Nazi regime. In this parody video, Hitler wants a GSXR 650 or 1000 for his first bike, and his compadres try to talk sense to him about starting with something smaller and, well, Hitler throws a temper tantrum (naturally). “I want my 180 wheels! I want to beat Ferraris! I will have women pulling the balls out of my pants!”

Just under 4 minutes of amusingly familiar arguments. I especially love, “I have six months of dirt riding experience!”

The Handbuilt Motorcycle Show 2014

Pandora and I were unable to make it to the Handbuilt Motorcycle Show in Austin, Texas on April 11th and 12th this year. The event is snuggled up to MotoGP and features the Wall of Death, a full bar, and works of Shinya Kimura, Walt Siegl, Revival Cycles, Boyle Custom Moto, and one of my favorite motoladies Sofi Tsingos plus a ton of other talented folks. Sofi and Brandon LaJoie of GT Moto (website) helped out with some awesome photos and words on the event.

"First, I would like to say how mind blowing the show was. Last year I was about a block away from the One Show during Moto GP and missed it by half an hour. So I asked to get off work in advance to make sure I could make it this year. I had NO idea my CB550 and I would be invited to actually be in the show! After arriving, I just stopped at the door as soon as I saw the talent that was there.

Mystery Girl Emma from Russia

You’ve probably seen photos of her riding around on sport bikes in heels and short skirts, shorts, costumes, etc. This the most circulated photo of them all, for sure. 

I’ve always wondered if she dresses up for photo ops around St. Petersburg, Russia, but otherwise gears up… and I found other photos that suggest that is the case.

Making Stuff: Footpeg Coat Hook

Since I’m finally at the point where I can cut, weld, and grind metal… when I was inspired to make a coat hook this weekend, I did so. I can’t even describe how excited I am to finally be able to do some of the weird decor and art projects I’ve had on my mind for years. My welding isn’t perfect, but it’s getting better with every go.

Anywho, on Saturday I made a coat/helmet/whatever-you-want-it-to-be-for hook out of an old foot peg… it even flips up.
