Healthy Carbs

A healthy dose of carbs to end the year with. First four of these monster Mikunis from a slabside...

And then twin Keihins from the same era

Deck the balls, walls, halls... something like that.

Sometimes is best to leave the singing to the Pros. Hope this visual treat doesn't corrupt your aural senses.

India Bike Week

India Bike Week promises to be a great festival (the will have a bikini bike wash-first in India) for motorcyclist and will be happening on 2-3 Feb 2012. It was kicked off yesterday with a  fun launch party where there was everything from a beautifully restored Manx Norton and an AJS from 90 years ago, to the K1300 and a trike. There was a little corner for customs bikes and that corner spot was occupied by a couple of choppers and four, yes four motorcycles built by me. Oh well did i say the beer was free and there were a bunch of old friends to laugh with and at. Here are some pics. Hope to see all of you folks in Goa soon.

Scott and the Cam

Here's another great video from the talented Scott Toepfer from the 'It's Better In The Wind' fame.
Love the vid. More so the beach racing.

A Bike For A Bike

It's very rare that you get to build yourself a motorcycle when you're so busy trying to build one for somebody else. This time it happened. Wish it could be each time...

There's been a lot of racing this weekend, so here's something to top it off. Nothing fancy, nothing like those new indie vids with a song to go along. Just an old school clip, lots of beautiful machines, lots of high revving engines and a brilliant soundtrack for every oil-smoking junkie out there.

Wish list #27

After the much random 'Random Thoughts', I've decided to start the 'Wish List' series. Seen here are things that -  I own, ought to own, or need to work harder so some day I will be able to own them. So feel free to lust after, buy some of them, or even maybe send me one in the mail.

Kicking off this series is Deux Ex Machina's 'Deux X Makr Tool Roll'

Deus says it is 'Designed to accomodate all the tools you’ll need to strip down an engine by the side of the road. 8 spanner pockets, 7 socket pockets, 2 utility pouches for drivers and the stash.'

If you don't own one yet, too bad. They're sold out.

Another Hole in the Ground

 Formed by an huge stone hurtling towards the earth some 56 thousand years ago, this big hole in the ground is quite spectacular. 
 Theres's a few temple ruins right by the lake side and because it was an hours walk into the bottom, I just settled for some low light zoom pics.

 Oh and did I mention, I rode a scooter some 500km to the middle of nowhere to get there

Cafe Racer Food For Thought

This is not just any other custom. This is not just another garage-built cafe race. This is actually a production ready motorcycle by chinese firm Skyteam.
With a 125cc power-plant and dimensions slightly smaller than the current 135cc machines in the market, this makes for one compact motorcycle. 

It's retro-looking, it's stylish and some manufacturer in India ought to take a cue and bring about a revolution. Somebody? Anybody?

Random Thoughts #57

Hardly Make Them Like They Used To

Not the Motorcycles...

And Definitely not the riders.
