Rock - N - Ride To The Graham School

From Walter from Kickstart Cycle Supply "In 1989 my friend Gene started Road Recovery which is a nonprofit that does recovery and outreach for at risk kids. They help a lot of people and they need funds to keep up the good work. To that end we are getting involved with this ride they set up for Saturday, June 24th."

About the ride:
We will be meeting at Bergen County Harley Davidson at 9 am. There will be complementary coffee and bagels available while you sign up for the ride. Kickstands up at 10 am for the long way up to the Graham School Campus in Hastings on Hudson, NY through some of the best motorcycle friendly roads on the east coast. (Approximately 100 mi) Once there you can find out more about the school while enjoying a catered lunch. After that it’s a quick ride back to BCHD for some well deserved ice cream.

The goal of the ride is to bring a message of hope to the young ladies and young men residing at the Graham School through a demonstration of unity and support through the assembly of motorcyclists along with hearing their inspirational life stories of struggle to triumph. The tax deductible donations raised will allow Road Recovery to reach more and more young people through their at-risk youth programs and community outreach events.

How can you help:
We have set up a CROWDRISE page to make it very easy and convenient for you to donate. You can also donate the day of the ride as well. Suggested donations will be at the Sign up.

About Road Recovery:
Road Recovery is dedicated to helping young people battle addiction and other adversities by harnessing the influence of entertainment industry professionals who have confronted similar crises and now wish to share their experience, knowledge, and resources. With support from the mental health field, Road Recovery provides hands-on mentorship training, educational/performance workshops, peer-support networking, and “all access” to real-life opportunities by collaborating with young people to create and present live-concert events and recording projects.

About The Graham School:
Founded in New York City in 1806 by a group of dedicated forward-looking women, including Isabella Graham and Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton, Graham Windham has been meeting the needs of New York City’s poorest, most vulnerable children for more than two centuries!

Road Recovery’s Programs like the ones at the Graham School are truly deserving of your support and donations. The work they are doing makes a real difference in the lives of kids that need your help. If you’re unable to make the run you can still help. Follow the link to donate today.

Cool Bike - Cool Boots

I don't know the situation (since there's lot of pictures of women with motorcycles that don't really ride the bike they're photographed with)   However, I just have a feeling this is her Sportster . . . she owns it . . . it's registered in her name and she rides the shit out of it? 
I'd like to tell her, "Hey, I really like your bike !"

The Winner's Circle

Team photos . . . you don't see them as much anymore for some reason?  Now, it's usually just the driver, maybe a flagman, and his car or bike.  There's plenty of podium photos.  If you've ever actually been a part of a race team - you know it takes many hands to be successful every week.  The team photo is kinda going away for some reason?  You don't see them (at least on-line) as much.  This DRAGBIKE 4246 took a team effort - and some of the best-in-the-business lined up for this photo to be recognized. 

PS. (I know 2nd from left is Ron Dickey from Axtell), then Baisley, then Fitzmaurice?, and maybe we could ask Jeff Wiley who the others are????  He'd know. 

TECH: How to Wrinkle Paint

The key to perfect wrinkle paint is "uniformity" - consistency.  If applied too heavy, it wrinkles and leaves lines, and the wrinkles in the paint are larger in places.  If applied too light(thin paint) it doesn't wrinkle at all, or appears rough.  Temperature of the part(and room temp) is important.  I've found about 60-70 degrees F works best.  It dries a bit slower, and your wrinkle paint job will be more consistent and uniform.  Application is very important.  You don't "recoat" wrinkle paint.  I give it a very light (stick coat) to give the surface some grip - let dry 10-15 mins., then apply a medium/heavy main coat of paint, careful to apply a uniform depth.  You don't want any runs !  I try to apply the paint on the surfaces of the part YOU SEE WHEN IT'S ON THE BIKE in the best way possible.  Cross your fingers. 

Now that the paint has wrinkled and is completely dry, I spray a flat (or semi flat) coat of black over the top to even out any shiny spots, or imperfections.  This is the step that really gives your black wrinkle job the professional appearance over wrinkle alone.  Highlight with chrome, polished or spun aluminum(as above) accessories for contrast.  Chrome socket-head screws with small OD stainless washers to mount the covers.

Ivan Mauger RIP 4-16-2018

6 Time World Speedway Champion Ivan Mauger recently died in Australia.  Probably the best, and most consistent speedway circle track racer.  Devoted his life to the sport.  Ivan won titles over 10 years apart. 
He saved his money (as a 16yr old) to buy his own speedway racing motorcycle. 
You can search: Ivan Mauger (Wikipedia) and read the full story on Mauger's incredible life and career . . .
