Motorcycle Crash  @ 75Mph

Motorcycle crash description

Motorcycle Crash, motorcycle accident

Honda CBR600F4i

The motorcycle crash in the riders own words:

At around 0:15 seconds I see the traffic building up ahead and I try to slow down to the flow of traffic ahead of me, and due to the fact that this is my FIRST TIME riding my new CBR600F4i, I, being used to my old 2008 Kawasaki Ninja 250R, squeeze the front brake as I normally would on my Ninja, and my front wheel locks up due to the fact that the two bikes have very different braking power (the CBR600 being way more powerful due to the fact that it has a 600cc engine rather than a 250cc like the one on the Ninja).

Custom Choppers – Jesse James

Custom Choppers

Discovery Channel Documentary on Jesse James, at West Coast Choppers and his great talent for building one of a kind custom choppers.

To many, owning a motorcycle is the ultimate expression of freedom – an expression that begs to be unique. So, where can you go to forge a one-of-a-kind ride? Welcome to West Coast Choppers and meet metal-forming guru Jesse James, whose talent, unlike his outlaw ancestor, is arc welding with artistry and making chrome sing. Go behind the scenes at Jesse James’ workshop and watch as he and his staff design and build six bikes for Daytona’s Bike week. It’s a pressure-filled labor of love, during which hand-wrought frames, pipes, and gas tanks come together in a blissful union of radical design and cutting edge power. You’ll even visit an Easy Riders photoshoot of Jesse James’ trademark El Diablo, then travel to Daytona, where the world’s greatest bike builders strut their stuff. Read more »

Santee California Motorcycle Hot Rod Show

Motorcycle Hot Rod Show – Santee California

San Diego County area hot rod and motorcycle show.

Santee California is just east of San Diego.

This is one of the many hot rod/ motorcycle shows in San Diego County.

Unfortunately, this is one of the few shows in San Diego County that’s judged by the spectators. Personally, I found that these shows are not as fair as those being judged by professional judges who are in the auto or motorcycle industry. Read more »
