Motor Cyclist Online MOTY Adventure Bike of the Year!

YES! God, I love my bike! Via Visual Gratification!

Yeah she's a kind of friend indeed

See? Why aren't there more Postie chops like this??? Via Church of Choppers!

You're changing my hard life forever

Jewelz got back from her mega road trip today. On the way back she stopped by the Powerhouse Motorcycle Museum in Tamworth which houses a small but exclusive collection of rare and vintage motorcycles, including this Harley with nicely detailed grips. Welcome back Jewelz! Check out her flickr! It's awesome!

Have mercy on me, baby

One very well-aligned Triumph Scrambler, owned by Mario! Well shot! Seen over on Rocket Garage! God, I wish I could speak Italian.

I'm cute and sweet as candy, as charming as a fable

Mick 71 is one of the most legendary guys I know, he's been riding a GSX 750R as a courier in Sydney since day Dot, a surfer, a snowboarder, and an aficionado of the Sydney punk and pub music scene. An artiste of life, but don't tell him I said that. Here's an awesome painting he did that I found on the wall at his and Flash's place when I was around there this arvo for Flash's birthday. Snail Crawl = Mail Call (couriers..!).

Feeling like your day may be done

Also seen at The Spot on the way home. And why not.

For a second that room was on the moon

Seen at The Spot on the way home on Friday night, one of the best rides home I've ever had. You know those runs where you get every green light, and when you get a red, you just run a massive stoppie and there's two hipsters sitting on a bench next to you and they're like, WHAAAAAT?!?! And you snitch a ride on a cab up the main drag and there's a cutie in the back seat and she's like, WHAAAAAT?!?! And you get a tail wind and you bust the left at the roundabout and there's a mad sharkie paint job on the Honda like, RIGHT THERE so you swing around and grab a snap with full flash in front of all the diners at the Thai restaurant and they're like WHAAAAAT?!?!

They're the best runs.

I was sitting on the corner just a wasting my time

Thomas Hooper is my artist of the day, check out his shirts with Shirts and Destroy, they're are absolutely freaking incredible.

She stalks her predatory walk, yeah

Fellow Scorpio Olga Kurylenko appears in the 2010 Campari calendar. For this reason, I am buying a bottle of Campari on the way home tonight and lounging around while I try and figure out how to acquire one of the only 9,999 copies being produced. Whoever can find me a hi-res image of the December shot gets a huge hat-tip. Thank you Olga, thank you Campari, thank you Simone Nervi and thank you Milan...

Seen first: The Coolist.

Pretty maids all in a row

Okay... Jewelz' bro Wayne has given her a Burke and Wills Biker Swag and I didn't show it at the time but I literally turned inside out with envy. So after a bit of research, here it is. Looks like there's only room for one but that'd make it all the more fun, right? Yeah riiiiiiiight...

"Do YOU come with the swag?"
"Oh you! Tee hee hee!"

I gotta get me a life.

Without you my life has become a hangover without end

Trumpy flat tracker at Deus this arvo. OG Bultaco headlight and grille. Damn. Wish those Sideburn boys were here!

Like a bird on a wire

Waiting for the rain to come in off the ocean. Coogee Bay.

I'm coming to find you if it takes me all night

Sure, the 1200GS might be a complete improvement on the 1150GS but it could never take the 1150's crown for being the phattest, toughest, Lara Croft-esque bike on the planet. Especially beat up from travelling the world, no screen and a halogen light that's holding on by the skin of its gaffer tape. And how much would I love a set of 1150GS leathers??? A lot. Spotted at Deus this arvo. Tried spotting the rider but he was probably inside sampling the fish and chips at the Deus cafe and washing it down with a long black.

Positive contact

Jesus. Irving Penn died yesterday. Gisele Bundchen. Things That Excite Me. Thank you for your vision, your art. We will remember you.

Your face just ghostly in the smoke

If I spent more more time at a cafe writing in my Moleskine than riding my bike then I'd be all over this custom cover by Stubborn Sideburn. Where's my Leatherman?

There's a part of this feeling that I just cannot kill

As soon as it's payday I'm a-gettin' me one of the new Freedom Machinery & Accessories shirts, this one's tickin' all my boxes. Lovin' it. BORN LOSER!

Lay your hands on me

Loving the new Speed Junkies design, spotted over on the Sideburn blog. Hopefully appearing on a tshirt soon?

You got me so I cant sleep at night

Fellow Scorpio Winona Ryder in her Bram Stoker's (another fellow Scorpio) Dracula (another fellow Scorpio) guise. No, we're not all vampyres, some of us are quite affable. Having said that, so are some vampyres...

The Things That Excite Me!

Asking people, what's the matter with you boy?

I just realised I'm turning into this guy I just found on The Acid Sweat Lodge.

And the moon comes skimmin' away the stars

Coogee tonight, fullish brown moon riseth in the east, Tom Joad walkin' along the railroad tracks.

Let me get it back, baby, where I come from

When I finally move out of the hell-hole in which I presently live, I have absolved that my next residence will be somewhere I can sleep next to my bike, just roll in, park and mingle the aroma of my freshly cooked pasta and hand made pesto with the mingling of her dissipating exhaust. Found some inspiration today, via Godspeed 4506, and A Time To Get!

I smoked my last pack of foreign cigarettes

Possibly the most exciting graphics to be dropped onto a helmet, Death Spray Custom x AGV x Hell For Leather. I'm Dazzled!
