So, last we left off… the Monster Project was mostly put back together, and at Heath’s shop for ease of some last major-ish tasks. The main thing left was refinishing the scraped up engine covers. They look alright from far away, but up close… kind of bad. A friend of mine gave me this home made (and totally awesome) cover removal tool… it worked like a charm. I took notes of where all the bolts went, took reference photos for later reassembly and carried on. The inner workings sure are pretty to… Continue Reading »
The last part of the Monster building process that I wrote an ‘official’ article about was when I finished the rolling chassis at SDS and moved it to my living room for awhile. Ladies and gents, if you leave your bike parked in your living room, make sure you use one of these. In the interim, I went parts shopping at MotoCorsa. When the time came for Heath to come transport the Monster to his shop, we backed it up out through my front door and loaded it up into his truck…. Continue Reading »
The winner of Day Two of Seven Days of Giveaways for the Zombie Performance Drag Bars is Kendra Chase and her bike ‘The Tsunami’!

It had… Continue Reading »
In lieu of a full Monster Project update (which is desperately past due), I wanted to share a photo I snapped yesterday after the seat was chopped.

I am more than pleased with my design decisions.
Doing some redecorating at my place. Monster Project mini update: The bike is back at home (obviously) while Heath finishes moving his shop so we can start on the exhaust and then the seat will be finished. We’re getting closer… [ see more photos of motorcycles parked indoors ]

Introducing Agata Ożóg, 36 year old Polish motolady. She wrote me, “I also love motorcycles, this is my whole world!” Sounds like my kind of woman! Agata rides a Honda Shadow 750 or a friends Honda CBR 600. She has a cat named Chopper, owns her own business, and quite obviously kicks ass!
I got an email from “Anon” (Samantha Thomason) who wrote asking about the jitters she got about buying her first bike… she said, “Took her for a spin, felt good, bought it. Just wanted to say thanks again for such awesome advice for a new rider. Really encouraging.” Congrats, Sam!
