They call me SuperSan. I am a qualified Sensei and also quite a Guru at various forms of Yoga. San means Mister in literal Japanese translation. I give good practical spiritual advice when drunk.

 

I also started my journey into the motorcycling world with a strong Jap cruiser called Yamaha Enticer. Graduated to Royal Enfield. Retired that iron engine right hand gear shift to play café racer with a Hero motorcycle which was a former really long long term Indian partner of Honda which is yet another Jap major in Asian 2-wheeler market.

Hi Wade,

We hunted down Jack through night radar in dangerous skies – thanks to Chuck Norris and his Delta Team – as Jack is a helicopter test pilot by profession. I tied him down and interrogated him old school myself with a hammer and a rusty nail. He revealed absolutely nothing about selling plans for the frame. I will reveal more after the waterboarding session. He says and I quote:

 

"I started Roadstercycle.com in 1994 selling Roadstercycles and parts. Now I just concentrate on selling parts and helping customers with there motorcycle problems. Charging problems mostly but other things come into play at times. I love the customer service part of the business. I love helping people out. I believe I have the best customer service in the motorcycle world and strive to keep it. So if you ever need a helping hand give me a try. At night and weekends I can help out. As far as parts and shipping is concerned I drop off packages every morning. I build all the kits myself so if you ever have an issue with anything you get from me, call me I'll know about it personally. I do all the building, the packaging and shipping myself."

 

“I love to help with charging system problems or questions, after 5 Pacific time please. I have a hard time answering calls during the day. Full time job along with my website.” – Love and Kisses, Yours truly – Jack. XOXO

Resident hippie report from Goa.

Resident hippie Raymond Hamilton is pissed off. Harley-Davidson India keeps getting the shit end of the stick from tabloid journalists here. Latest news is that there was an Annual All India HOG Rally at hippie heaven called “Goa”. And one Harley rider died on the road. The biker brother was abandoned by the other Harley Owners on the accident, refusing to talk to police and refusing to abandon their party trip of booze and boobs at Goa. The other Harley riders left the dead bloody body of Anand Pawar in the hands of his shocked wife and left the scene to continue to their party destination.

 

The news item is carefully worded. It suggests that HOG Rally organizer Harley- Davidson is responsible for the welfare of all riders attending the Goa event from all over the roads of India. It does not say that a local HOG Chapter was the group Anand was riding with. It just says it was a Harley Riding Group which abandoned him.

 

Soumen Choudhury, who oversees the Pune city chapter of HOG, merely said that he was not part of the group with whom Anand Pawar was riding. “I heard about the incident but do not know the exact details,” he said. “The group has been around for five years and they are an extremely cohesive bunch. In the past, fellow riders have gone out of their way to help a member in distress. In this case, I am unaware as to what happened and hence cannot say much.”

Roads, Mountains and a Temple

Got off my ass and reached the National Highway on my stupid city bike, a café racer. We were heading up in the hills of Igatpuri towards Shirdi temple.

 

Here is a selfie of me with morning puffiness and bad helmet hair wearing the very useful and reliable 5-Ball Leather Vest. The vest is ideal for Mumbai as it is from California. Withstands the night riding cold chills and permits breathable comfort and safety in the morning Indian sun heat.

 

Since me and my friends were doing an honorable righteous thing of visiting a Holy place, it was but natural for the Devil to tempt us away from all that’s good and pure. I stayed overnight at this haunted Lodging. That’s my café racer parked outside the gate.

They have a huge indoor compound, barren and forsaken but no parking allowed there. Since we did look like decrepit decadent bikers instead of looking like pious pilgrims, the bastard inn-keeper charged us 100% advance payment for the room. He didn’t trust us with a plastic chair even and asked us to rest on a brick bench sealed to the floor.

The Royal Enfield Machismo had a traditional expected breakdown while returning home the next evening. Back in 2003, Bandit gave me a Bikernet.com Spirit Bell as a goodie and it helped me scare away the ghouls and zombies who were probably just malnourished villagers or stoned drunken tourists. All in all a fun time was had by all. I wish I didn’t sell away my Enfield.

No one likes politics and those who don’t talk politics avoid talking religion as well. I have been following the Bikernet.com reports on global warming and various regulations regarding motorcycles. Here is a piece of my penny. 

 

1.     "The more corrupt the state, the more numerous the laws." - Tacitus (born 55 AD, Senator in ancient Roman Empire)

2.     How many American citizens drive a custom built motorcycle or hotrod car?

3.     Almost 97% of the vehicles on the road all over the world are from major branded automotive companies such as Ford, Toyota, Volvo, Harley-Davidson, Suzuki, Yamaha, etc. They all meet strict regulations and Euro pollution norms. So why target vehicles as the whole source of global warming?

4.     Volvo even paid a ridiculous amount of penalty fines for its pollution fiasco in USA. How many cattle farmers and animal meat farmers paid fines for pollution from methane and other bio-fuel caused in animal farming? Forget the fact that farmers use 90% of the water supply in every agricultural state while resident citizens who drive cars or bikes have to suffer water supply cuts and price hikes in water tariff because of the wastage of water in animal farms. Cowspiracy indeed.

5.     So the Arctic ice is melting and penguins are drowning and polar bears are sleeping the eternal sleep of death. Blame the average American citizen won’t you? Do you know who is the world’s biggest consumer of petrol, diesel and natural fuels? Yes, the various Military Industrial Complex of all nations of planet Earth. All nations including American Government spends a trillion plus dollar on fuel to run military trucks, fighter jets and test missiles – all for world peace. So taste those apples Mr. Patriot.

Why blame the average office going, family feeding, beer drinking citizen for the global climate changes?
