After a very, very long hiatus we decided to freshen up our blog and keep all of our followers updated with what’s going on this year. We have a ton of plans in place and ready to show everyone what our hard work has produced. We’ll show you a very small preview of a project we’ve been working on that will release this spring. If you check out our Facebook page, you’ll see we have an obsession with fashion and we plan on expanding on this obsession. Until then!…
What the **** is going on here!? See, I was brought up in the Bronx, which means I really get that being a total-bronx bad ass means having a chromed out Gixxer 1000 with a stretch and a fat rear tire so you can do long rolling burnouts. I get it. The “exotic” bikes were and still are very much left alone. Now I’ve seen customized cafe style Ducati’s but nothing to this extreme. Don’t get me wrong I think these bikes are beyond awesome looking, but we all know there are a group of Ducati loyalists plotting their revenge as this is being written. The looks just can’t be denied with an already beautiful Duci being dropped on its stomach and stretched out to next year. Oh god this is just too GOOD! Any one else would LOVE to see more of this?
btw, you guys peep the rear brake setup in-between the wheel and the frame?!?!?!?!? Explain!!
I know there have to be people out there talking about Valentino Rossi making the move back to Yamaha. For any MotoGP fan this is BIG. We saw how, well, mediocre his last season was with Ducati. But I won’t put the blame on anyone, maybe he just needed more time? Either way, that’s in the past now, because he is back on the winning edge with Yamaha. There are a hell of a lot of questions I’m sure many of his fans have, and I seriously think this is one of his most important seasons yet. Does Rossi still have it? We’ll just have to wait and see.
Anyone else SUPER HYPED to see what his new design and color way will be? Rossi always seems to bring the goods.
Guess what guys! Back again with episode 3 of the Monkee Trip. Like I’ve said before in the previous posts, there is nothing like riding, so I could only imagine what a road trip with your buddies on classic motorcycles through Europe would feel like. It’s all about the freedom of the ride.<p><a href=”http://vimeo.com/47132725″>MONKEETRIP 2012 EPISODE # 3</a> from <a href=”http://vimeo.com/simonweyhe”>simon weyhe</a> on <a href=”http://vimeo.com”>Vimeo</a>.</p>
Not too long ago I spoke briefly about clothing company’s going to extra mile and showing their clothes in different lights. Bringing in new customers is something a good company will always strive to do. Whether it’s going something completely outside the box or just out of your direct customer demographic. The video below is a great example of this. Benny Gold has been around for a while, but as a huge motorcycle enthusiast, watching this video wants me to buy Benny Gold. He make’s it cool. Props to doing things right.<p><a href=”http://vimeo.com/31208442″>Benny Gold – Night</a> from <a href=”http://vimeo.com/mondial”>MONDIAL</a> on <a href=”http://vimeo.com”>Vimeo</a>.</p>
Anyone want to know why I am addicted to MotoGP? Why I think Rossi is the best to ever ride? Watch this video. I started getting into MotoGP, seriously, in ’08 and was blessed to see this race live. It gave me goose bumps as I watched it and it still gives me goose bumps now. Many people just don’t understand why these final two laps were the most exciting laps ever. The amount of skill to perform that the level that they did is staggering. I mean, they were both performing at 2000% for the last two laps. It’s just amazing. It’s breathtaking. And it’s why MotoGP will always be my favorite professional sport.
PS- You can also see why everyone was so upset when he left Yamaha for Ducati. He and that bike was one.
Sit up, and enjoy!
Ah, Yes! MotoGP season is here!!! The first face was this past sunday and it was a exciting to say the last. With the new chassis and 1000cc bikes I’m sure there is still some getting used to but there was really no surprise as to who was in the front of the pack. Stoner, Lorenzo and, my favorite, Pedrosa, lead the entire race. It really is ridiculous how fast these guys are compared to everyone else. We have new riders, new teams, and new graphics, should be a FUN year to say the least. What I am really wanting to see is Rossi and Hayden step the Ducati game up, I’m tired of seeing them in the middle of the pack when they should be just as fast as the guys in the front. We’ll see!
Continuing with the motorsports theme, this is very exciting time for MotoGP as they are moving back up to 1000cc motorcycles. Faster bikes with the addition of the the huge weight savings gained throughout the years, makes for a year of riding that is going to be intense to say the least. Ducati recently released Nicky Hayden and Valentino Rossi’s bikes and they look incredible. I love trying to find the improvements made from the years bike. These motorcycles are new from the ground up. Honestly, after the below-par performance last year I hope these motorcycle’s are a ton better. We’ll just have to wait and see.
Here is a short video of the making.
I have always admired Roland Sands builds. He really does know how to think outside the box. When I first heard about him turning a art piece like the Desmo into a street tracker I didn’t like the idea at all. But after watching this video and hearing the reasoning behind it, I realize I should have never doubted him. Props to Roland. Keep on making them dream bikes.
After a four week vacation MotoGP resumed it’s racing schedule in Portugal. I have to say it was a pretty good race, but I do have a lot to say on what is shaping up this season. Firstly, congratulations to Pedrosa for his first win this season. He will always be my favorite rider, besides Rossi. The fight between Pedrosa and Lorenzo was intense! I mean they were setting fastest lap times every couple laps. But in the end Pedrosa proved why he should be on top. He took his time, being patient to find the perfect time to pass. Once he passed Lorenzo for the lead he really showed the speed he was holding back for most of the race. For the other racers, Rossi was good but Dovizioso held on and passed on the last straight. Hayden and Spies were nowhere to be seen. As for the bikes, the Repsol Honda’s seem to be rockets, while the Yamaha’s are the best on the brakes. One thing I am upset about is the performance of the Ducati’s. I mean, Ducati has GREAT riders, but Duci really needs to step up and make there bike tons better. I would love to see Rossi on top again, but the bike seems to be holding him back.
Until Next time
