Misty Whitten’s recent photo update on her Triumph Thruxton really caught my attention, partially because her caption was simply, “Weeeeeeeeeeee!”

One of the cooler submissions I’ve received in a long time… I was spotted on the freeway blasting around on Pandora! How cool!
AHHH: I live in Washington, DC, and I have been following the Monster project and your blog for years now. I’ve been staying in San Diego for the past week, and today, I was driving my brother’s car [NOT MY SCRAMBLER :( ] on 5N. In my mirror, I saw a bike coming up. I see that the handlebars and the front light are RAD, and even before it catches me, I’m out loud cheering “Go! Go!” cause it’s a wide, long, beautiful turn and the rider is GOING. And as the bike pulls level, I think, quick, “holy shit! it’s a lady!”, and then it passes, and I see the seat and the tank and it’s Pandora, and I’m screaming out loud in the car!! Damn, girl. You’re like my patron saint of lady riders. And you passed me today. And I love it.
Thanks Sarah for the awesome note, wish I could have heard your shrieking excitement! haha.

Zack Clarke and his lady taking off from Cerberus in San Diego a little over a week ago. Every now and again I remember to take out my ‘real’ camera and capture some candid moments… those are my favorite to photograph.

"Adapting to this winters snow here at the shop… Chicago Style." from Rolling Idols facebook page. Vintage Triumph with a street sign snow plow affixed to the front. Brilliant.
An amazing booklet of 20 not-so-politically-correct-but-hilarious parking “tickets” to doll out as you please. My favorite-
"The way you pulled in makes me wish your dad would’ve pulled out." Plus other zingers including, "Hope you’re better between the sheets than you are between the lines."
Last week’s post about the Ducati 1199 café racer custom featured photographs snapped outside the Netherlands residing MotoPuro shop. This weekend I received a link to their official photos and press release, which gave me some more insight and background into this build.
After giving Pandora a makeover I have newfound understand for all motorcycle builds, even the ratty ones with duct tape and zip ties in place of metal bracketry and hose clamps. Perhaps some leave me with a deeper sense of respect for the person who spent hours staring at the machine, but I can appreciate them all none the less.
The lack of exposed wires and cables, the cafe racer style tail section that slopes into the existing lines of the Panigale bodywork… these are things to notice.
Troy Corser on a vintage BMW r90s from a post to his twitter account back in July during the Goodwood Festival of Speed in England. “They told me to be careful with this one.” As Ben Bostrom replied, “Classic Troy!”
What, he looks like he’s being very careful! Awesome.
