Motorcycle Lane Splitting California

Motorcycle Lane Splitting California is legal!

Heading out of the bay .. I left at the wrong time…there were some breaks in traffic but not much..it started clearing up outside of Vacaville…. longest session yet!

Assembly Bill 51, signed into law by Gov. Jerry Brown, for the first time legally defines lanesplitting, the practice of motorcyclists riding between lanes to move quickly through traffic. 

Personally, and most probably because I’ve been riding motorcycles for over 40 years, I try to avoid lane splitting whenever possible. naturally here in Southern California, when you’re riding in the air-cooled bike sometimes lane splitting is unavoidable to prevent damage to your engine.

But, with that said,  there’s been many times when I’ve been invited to ride from San Diego up to LA  and have declined just for the fact that I knew it would entail lane splitting in super-heavy LA traffic. I’ve seen my share of distracted drivers here on the California roads,  and really don’t want to increase my odds of injury by splitting lanes on the congested freeways.

Driving a car here in San Diego, on a number of occasions, I’ve been rear ended by an inattentive driver. Luckily, there were never any injuries and only some fender damage in each case. Now, keep in mind that if the same accidents occurred while I was on my motorcycle, the outcome would have been totally different. Read more »

Awesome guys that’s the American way to build our President a sweet bike!! I can really see how this chopper fits President Trump’s character and lifestyle! Way over the top for me personally, but just the fact that he commissioned a build like this is amazing.

Personally, I put this in a special corner of the Oval Office! Read more »

Radical Motorcycles – Custom Motorcycles

Very Cool Radical Motorcycles!

Just the wildest bunch of bikes I have ever seen. Pure art and mechanical genius.

Powerful art on wheels! tthe reason you don’t see more radical custom bikes like this is really quite simple, they cost big bucks to put together. Not even counting the time in designing and workmanship, parts chrome plating,, custom fabrication and naturally a custom paint job can easily set you back tens of thousands of dollars. Personally, I doubt that you’d ever recoup the real cost put into one of these unique  custom motorcycles. Read more »

Car Driver Attacked by Bikers

Car Driver Attacked by bikers

These motorcycle gangs are out of control. now they’re forcing people to get married if you cut them off! Everyone knows almost half of all marriages end in divorce, so these gangsters just cost this guy half of everything he’ll ever own. the poor guy would’ve been happier with just a biker beat down. What a bunch of jerks.


Of all the places to propose, in the middle of the street is not exactly very romantic.

It would have been really sad twist, if her boyfriend didn’t know that she had a gun in her bag … and then shot a couple of the motorcyclists!

What a great way to make yourself look manly and hard before proposing.

Now if this was here in San Diego California, some good modifications of this would be that: 1st. It should have happened in the middle of Balboa Park with some nice scenery around. #2.  When the driver gets thrown on the hood of the car he fights back and knocks down at least two/three of the bikers … Gets his girlfriend and says let’s run thru the park. #3. Now the Mariachi band comes out from the bushes, the flowers come out of the trunk and on the grass he does the proposal.

American Ironhorse Outlaw

American Ironhorse Outlaw

The Texas Chopper was the flagship of the Ironhorse motorcycle line. Many do not realize that Ironhorse made a number of different models (the majority of which are rigid frames) in their Fort Worth Texas facility. We are going to be featuring videos on many of the Ironhorse models in the coming weeks.

As I said, the Texas Chopper was the most popular of the Ironhorse models followed closely by their Legend model. Actually, these two models were both swinging arm suspension choppers. What really made them very popular was the distinctive classic chopper look, while providing a soft tail ride. Read more »

Ironhorse Motorcycles

Ironhorse Motorcycles

Three cool looking iron horse motorcycles in San Diego’s East County.

Kevin is one guy who really likes horses . . . Not only real horses, but Ironhorses as well!

The Ironhorse motorcycle that you’re looking at on the opening screen of the above video, is a Legend model. This particular one has a 2008 Texas Chopper tank on it. If you look closely you’ll see some of the differences between the Texas Chopper, the second motorcycle in, and the Legend the first motorcycle in the foreground. First of all, look at the swinging arm on the rear wheel and you can see that the Legend is an A-frame style and on the Texas Chopper has a straight bar that goes back to the wheel. Read more »
