Some kind of savior singing the blues, a derelict in your duct tape shoes

Some great shots of Jennifer Anderson. Head over and check out her flickr, hit paydirt with KDRT.

A rollin' rock, electric shock, it gives a lickin' that doesn't stop

Nice one! Parked the Ghostess next to the dirty-faced angel F650. My first bike, in red. Funny seeing the two bikes next to each other.

New BMW GS 30th Anniversary colorways

...done right! Loving the 30th Anniversary colors for the BMW GS range, seen here on Two Wheels Blog.

She has the blood of reptile just underneath her skin

I have been waiting many years for someone to realise the latent potential that resides within the Honda CT110. Post Modern Motorcycles in Melbourne have now done so. Check the Gallery on their website for the different models, but for now, I'm putting my hand up and saying their scrambler style model is the best looking postie I have ever seen. What is nearly missed in this image are some interesting details with a hat tip to bicycling: namely Brooks leather footpegs which are actually intended as handgrips and Brooks leather mudflaps. Inspired! Great stuff, POST, well done. Photo once again from Pipeburn, thank you.

Foot on the pedal, never ever false metal, engine running hotter than a boiling kettle

Rodney Aguar's BMW R80 bobbers. Photos from Pipeburn's flickr stream. Hard to believe they started out like this:

Abandoned places - I guess we know the score

Thanks to the editor of BikeEXIF for the tip on this gorgeous BMW R80, who's quite aware of my passion for the marque, and my frustration with how many bad Boxer conversions there are out there... Here's one that makes it all better, in fact every bike that comes out of the Ritmo Sereno workshop is a work of art. Have a look at more of their bikes on their blog, and more importantly, check out BikeEXIF for all the two-wheeled goodness you could ever want!

if I could give you anything I would give you a kick

How we roll in The Shire: one of the most immaculately restored Kawazaki 750 triples I've ever seen. Damn thing was seriously 'off-the-showroom-floor' condition, it looked like it hadn't actually been ridden, just wheeled into position.

It don’t matter what you do, don’t matter what you say, it’s all in the delivery

Head over to ze Last Chance Garage for some great shots of their visit to the BMW Archive museum in Munich, which I will make a pilgramage to myself one day. Wonder is Sabine Breuer still works there?

Some people get their kicks, stompin' on a dream

Beautiful old Moto Guzzi V50 under the Bridge downtown. Rode past us at the pub last night and it had the most evocative tone, everyone turned around.
