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!…
I don’t know about anyone else, but there are a ton of builds in my mind I would love to do. A lot of them, of course haven’t been done yet and I would like to keep it that way. haha. Well one of my “dream” builds was a Audi 50, a car we never got over here in the states. I remember a yellow one roaming around the west coast for years, but with a 10k asking price it was just a teeny bit above what I was willing to spend. Well long story short, Rotiform eventually bought the car and sold it to a guy over here in New York. It landed in good hands it seems, because some pictures were released of it’s recent build. And, it’s beautiful. Rocking some new Rotiform 4-spoke TMB’s and a perfect hue of blue I’m glad it was done right. Props to the builder. Guess I was too slow.
PS – I still want one.
I know, I’m super late with this, but I totally forgot about the pictures I took from the show. I always make sure I don’t miss this show at the Javit Center, I don’t like giving opinions on motorcycles until I see them in person and sit on them. There were a lot of bikes I like for the 2012 model year. The pricing on these bikes are getting pretty crazy though. Maybe I’m just used to seeing anything that wasn’t Ducati, sticker for under 10 grand back in the day. Now you can’t get any 1000 for under $12k. I really liked the new Honda CBR’s, the styling was spot on and they felt light and nimble. Wasn’t too crazy about the Suzuki’s and Kawasaki’s but the new ZX-10’s redesign was sick. The Yahama R1 of course, for me is still the bike to beat. You just can’t beat the power, sound and looks of that bike. The Ducati 848 is still my favorite. The flat white and black are to die for and at a VERY affordable price point.
Anyways I didn’t take a crap load of pictures cause the place was packed as always. Here are some from the set.
Pretty sick custom BMW turbo.
A sick custom stretched and dropped R1.
A really nice full faring Triumph cafe racer.
Nice to see Aprilia back in the show. Can’t go wrong with this RSV-4.
A track version of the bike I WILL own one day. The KTM RC8.
On to Ducati with the all new 1199. This looks like a beast and a half!
A couple pictures of my favorite motorcycle. I really would have a hard time choosing a color. HA!
It’s about that time of the year where we all put our daily’s into “winter mode”. It’s these few months that I really hate living in New York. But hey, the guys in the heat year round never get the joy of snow drifting late at night in their local parking lot. Spotted this video out of Russia of some guys having some fun in the snow. I’m sure they get a crap load more snow then us, so I can’t complain at all.
So a couple weeks SNTRL and True Driving wen’t to a meet right in the middle of Manhattan. Umali throws a Halal meet a couple times a year, and with the success of the past few I decided to film and put together a short video of our experience. It was a great night considering it was the weekend of the 9/11 anniversary. I really hope everyone likes it. We are learning as we go and hope to pump out some great video for everyone.
Yet another great video covering much of the madness that goes on at Gatebil. This definitely is a must-see.
P.S. I am posting this right after experiencing my first earthquake here in New York. Pretty nuts!
