Brian Shul, SR71 Pilot

Posted: October 26, 2017 in Uncategorized

Here’s something a little different which I’m sure you’ll enjoy. 

Brian Shul is a pilot who overcame some some tremendous setbacks to succeed in his quest to be an SR71 pilot. It was an elite program reserved for the creme de la creme.

I don’t want to reveal how his story plays out but it starts with being shot down in Cambodia during the Vietnam war and could have ended right there and then. 

 

Wristwatches

Posted: July 13, 2017 in Uncategorized

I’ve been noticing a lot of you vintage bike guys also have some nice wristwatches so I thought I’d add some watch content to liven things up a little.

Here’s my Seiko SKX009 that was getting a little beat up from being worn every day for a few years. It came with the “Pepsi” blue and red ring which is aluminum. I found a nice ceramic black replacement on EBay (of course) and it was pretty easy to change. Transformed the watch really and I couldn’t be more pleased.

The picture isn’t all that great but you get the idea.

Cheers!

 

 

Norton Ride Video Test

Posted: June 15, 2017 in Uncategorized

Figured I’d add some up to date content with a short ride around the block on the Norton.

Not too bad for a first effort but lots of room for improvement, I even left in the engine stall….

I did add some commentary rather than some vulgar music track, but in the end I do hate the sound of my own voice.

I used the you tube editor which leaves something to be desired but mastering a real editor takes some time, so  I posted this rather than be consumed by analysis paralysis.

Comments are welcome  but please, I don’t need some twit telling me this is amateurish, I am well aware and hope to improve over time.

New Addition

Yes I know they aren’t all that rare but it needed a new owner.

Occasionally craigs list works!

A loss of spark means it has been sitting for years so that’s actually a good thing. New points restored the sparks but there’s a lot more things to be done. With only 4500 miles there’s hope…

Figured I’d better add some Brit Bike content after that Ford GT posting so here it is:

Lots of pics from a UK bike rally from England Kev. A real treasure trove of bikes you normally only see in the magazines. From New Imperial to Zundapp, to Velo specials there are tons of bikes all ridden and not pampered. Refreshing to see events like this with such a wide assortment of classic iron in one place.

Have a look:
