Cafe Racers have always been an interest of mine and one of my favorite Cafe Racer websites is Bike EXIF. I subscribe to their RSS feed here at Faceyman.Com and I also follow on Twitter and Facebook.

Recently, I came across this article by automotive designer Charlie Trelogan called, How to Build a Cafe is one of the better articles that I have read.  Check out this Honda CX500 build and the basic design principles associated with Cafe Racers.

I finally found the time to do some video editing from last summer's motorcycle trip. One of the most memorable rides was on NY Route 86 from Jay, NY to Lake Placid, NY.  We liked the road so much, that we rode the 17 mile stretch twice. 

NY Route 86
The route follows the Ausable River and is full of twists and turns.  If you are ever in the area, it is a must ride road!  There are some very scenic stops along the route as well, including Flume Falls and High Falls Gorge. Enjoy the video!

I recently scored tickets to Bob Seger's - Ride Out Tour 2014-15 and can't wait to attend the concert.  I have been a Seger fan since the late 70's and attending a Seger concert has always been on my list of things to a few weeks, I will be rockin' with Bob Seger and the Silver Bullett Band.

Looking forward to hearing tunes from Seger's new album and hopefully, many of the classics!

In 2012, I wrote a blog post about my Twitter friend Jase, aka @hellcatcustoms and his attempt to set a Land Speed Record at Bonneville (which he was successful in doing). Last year (2013), Team Hellcat Customs was ready for another attempt at Bonneville, but sadly, it was canceled due to bad weather.  I was really excited for the 2013 attempt as Team Hellcat was going to be running multiple bikes at Bonneville.

Jase - 2012 at Bonneville
After waiting an entire year, Team Hellcat is ready and looking to conquer Bonneville again!  I am happy to be one of the sponsors for Team Hellcat and I am looking forward to following this year's adventure! If you want to sponsor, you still can - click here.

Here's wishing Team Hellcat all the best at Bonneville!  If you want to get a feel of what it's like, check out the video about Jase and Team Hellcat's experience in 2012.

Polaris Industries and their Indian Motorcycle Division just released a new revamped version of the Indian Scout

At first glance, this 69CI liquid cooled motorcycle looks impressive.  Images demonstrate nice lines and attention to design.  Add a riding position similar to the original Scout, tan solo seat and the iconic Indian badging and you keep the image of the original Indian Scout alive.

I will reserve final opinion until I get to see the new Indian Scout in person.  As you may recall, I wrote a post a couple of years back about the Honda F6B and was very excited about it, only to be disappointed when I had the chance to see one.

The marketing people are putting their spin on things, as they should and the promotion of the 2015 Indian Scout is going full tilt.  Here's hoping that Polaris and Indian and can make a go of this.

Ride safe...
