2015 Oil & Ink Vintage Motorbike Print Exposition - Part 2

The 2015 Oil & Ink Vintage Motorbike Print Exposition drew primarily a cafe racer sort of crowd and Billy was busy promoting Ton-Up Minneapolis' Spring Social on May 30th.  I've attended the last few years and it's fun so check it out!

He seemed to find it amusing to introduce me to everyone he could.  That is... when he wasn't busy giving this guy some sort of bizarre hug / back massage.

A few crowds shots:

You might notice Jordan from Union Speed & Style in that last one.  The shot's pretty blurry, but here he is having fun 2-up on 2 wheels.

As for actual motorcycles, there were some cool ones.  I liked this Moto Guzzi owned by the guy Billy was awkwardly hugging earlier.

This Triumph looked nice and clean:

Another Moto Guzzi:

And yet another Italian, this time a Ducati:

Road rash:

Very cool Yamaha:

Out of everyone, these two seemed to having the most fun.

I ended up leaving just as thunderstorms rolled through Minneapolis. I got soaked for the first half of ride home until I got ahead (or maybe just to the side) of it.  Lots of lightning was flashing in the distance, which was pretty cool.  While I try to avoid riding in the rain, it actually feels nice every once in a while.

If you live in Paris, San Francisco, Ventura, Brooklyn, or Nashville, be sure to catch the Oil & Ink expo as it comes through!

New product from Biltwell Inc.

Check out Biltwell Inc's latest creation: The EXFIL-7 BAG

Overview: EXFIL is military parlance for "exfilltrate," which means, "Get the hell out of there as fast and organized as possible." EXFIL-7 is the first component in our rugged, function-forward line of collapsible transport and storage gear for action-oriented motorcycle enthusiasts. Unlike model-specific luggage for adventure bikes or the wild west-themed satchels popular with retro chopperheads, the Biltwell EXFIL-7 combines modern materials and construction with military-tested retention and expansion technology to create luggage that works even tougher than it looks. The "7" in this bag's name refers to the number of 12-oz. beer cans that can be stored and transported in its padded main compartment. Other Biltwell EXFIL bags will utilize this naming convention to help riders calculate the volume of equipment every bag will carry. 

Construction: Coated weather-resistant nylon pack cloth exterior with heavy-duty polyester thread at all joints and seams. One-inch-wide nylon modified MOLLE system on perimeter panels and back for strap placement, custom tie-down locations and multi-purpose mounting. One main and two pocket compartments with YKK nylon zippers. Cast alloy zipper pulls with polyester knotted rope extenders for easy operation with gloves. Double-thick exterior walls and lid construction with internal padding for protection and durability. Antique brass drain grommets on floor panel for moisture evacuation. 1.25-inch-wide sinch straps with heavy-duty nylon quick-release buckles help secure load after packing to reduce movement and rattling. Mil-spec orange interior panels on main and secondary compartments for enhanced materiel search and recovery inside the bag.  

Compartment dimensions:

• Main: 11" wide x 5.75" deep x 4.75" wide
• Large pocket: 9.75" wide x 5.75" deep with 8.0" opening
• Small pocket: 5.75" wide x 4.25" deep with 4.5" opening

Fitment: Like other DIY parts and accessories in our line, the EXFIL-7 is customizable for different applications and mounting locations. On our personal bikes we've mounted heavily laden EXFIL-7 bags on the frame's down tubes, above the headlight on tall and mid-sized handlebars, and of course on both sides of our sissy bar (in front of the taillight and behind the rider's lower back.) EXFIL-7's MOLLE strap configuration and four reinforced leather straps with nickel-plated buckles easily facilitates this wide range of mounting options.
MSRP: $59.95

Fuel Cleveland Photos 2015

Photo by: Jay Cagney
Fuel Cleveland has gone and past but if you are like me, you want to go back and drink it all in just a little more. I tried to put together a solid amount of photos from the show that I took along with adding some photos from other photographers that were at the show. The coolest part about inviting so many of the best motorcycle photographers in the country is seeing their outlook on how the show happened through their eyes. The content being shot is the same, but nothing is truly ever seen the same way. I think that's what I love that most about photography so much. I believe you will really see what I am saying pretty clearly here, enjoy!

Lowside Syndicate was gracious enough to bring this amazing Shovelhead built by Kyle Meure and owned by Tyler Pedersen who couldn't make it to the show because he is over seas protecting our freedom. Thank you Tyler for everything you do for us back here in the states, and come home safe.
Outside had some pretty awesome bikes that came out as well.
