Oct 13, 2015
Brothers on Bikes
A wonderful MM hello to all of you throttle twisting brothers and sisters out there. We think you will really enjoy this episode!! Here's why....
This week we had Steve Blaufeder of TT Cycles in Berkeley Heights New Jersey as a guest on our show. Steve's shop specializes in restoring old Triumphs, Nortons, BSA and other classics. He also builds custom bikes of all types. So check out his wonderful work here >TT Cycles<. Really wonderful stuff.
We went over some hot deals at Bike Bandit who is running a 40% off sale on luggage.
REVZILLA is having a 20% off sale on Waterproof Gloves.
Fix My Hog just adjusted their subscription price to $12 for a year.
JP Cycles is continually running a sale on Cruiser stuff, so check that out if you're the cruiser type.
For our Bike Spec Shootout we went..... different.
Tim went with the 2016 Star VMAX
Chris went with the Harley Davidson Freewheeler Trike
I went with the Moto Guzzi Eldorado
We also talked about the fun Chris is having with getting his bike fixed while Geico and Bergen Harley Davidson duke it out in the parking lot over what's getting fixed. At the time of the recording of the show, no decision was made on the repairs, but since we've come to learn that the two parties who were bickering have kissed and made up and the bike is getting repaired as of this writing. So good for Chris!!
I gave us all a great lesson. The History of the Harley Davidson Sportster. From its inception in 1952, the Sportster has been one of the most recognized and iconic motorcycles Harley Davidson has produced. You can also read the full article here >Sportster<
Now remember, on Sunday, October 18th at 7 p.m., the Motorcycle Men are going to record their show live at The Crossroads in Garwood, NJ. Gonna be lots of fun. We've got Stickers to give away, their will be music from "A Halo Called Fred" and some great interviews with Shore Fire Designs and other fun stuff.
