He and his band of brothers spend their time touring the country to play their own ...

Motorhead Memo: I came, I saw, I pondered!

As this is written, I’m still absorbing and analyzing my impressions of the first Street Rod 750 I’ve seen in person. First impression is, Harley probably should’ve done this in the first place.

Two of the old Corvettes I have owned over the decadent decades had a nifty little “safety device” in the form of optic fibers in a dashboard indicator that let you know all was well with various exterior lights… notably the taillights. I was reminded of this when (for what seems like the umpteenth time) I got word of a ...
