Painting

by Martin Bouchard (Fitto)

People often wonder where my ideas come from. In this article I’ll reveal how it happens and you’ll see how it involves my surroundings and what’s in my head, for my ideas don’t always come instantly.

At custom motorcycle shows you can see all kinds of paint work, from the simplest to the most complex designs. This includes classics such as flame and two-tone paint jobs. You can also see artwork that goes with a certain culture. You can see works done that underline the simple beauty of the custom bikes themselves. These works often follow a certain fashion or trend in the technical sense. Some bike owners opt for more personal themes, an art that embodies a personal history.

Project Rushmore

Have you guys heard about project Rushmore ? Sounds like something out of Area-51 and God forbid if I talk about it there’ll be “men in black” knocking at my door ! Hey don’t worry they’re already here and are helping me write this article ! Project Rushmore is the upgrade (project) for the new 2014 FLTs. The bike has new lighting, a new fairing, new brakes and comfort upgrades. But what interest us, for this article anyway, is the new liquid cool 103 high output motor. This article is sooooo cool, actually it’s the coolest one I’ve ever written, it’s all about cooling our big V-Twin motors. Ever since we have actually started generating real horsepower out of our twins and because traffic has become so dense engine heat has developed into a problem.

I got my first motorcycle in 1979. It was an on/off road Suzuki DS 175. I had a taste for adventure, in the dirt as well as on the road. But after several years I changed my mind and bought a 1986 Virago VX 1100. It was very nice to ride but it lacked a little in the “need for speed” category. So I registered myself in the Quebec CMRC… to race !

Go, Go, Go ! Now that was more like it ! Quadracer 250, Kawasaki KX 250 on ice, 680 cc with Knight frame in the dirt, I was in my element and I never missed any of the oval dirt track races. I had fun but in February of 1995 I had a freak accident and I decided to put a stop to everything.

Behind The Lens : Shane Russeck

By Charlie Lessard • Photos by Shane Russeck (shanerusseckphoto.com)

Polished aluminium, attitude, tattoos, beautiful women, mechanical intricacies, style, chrome, brotherhood, the feel of rolling thunder, tradition, air brush strokes, legendary desperados, unique conceptions, black leather, vibrant colours, sisterhood, laughter, the open road, determination, pain, the wind, history, two-wheeled works of art, heaven and pure hell – they are part of us and we are part of them! They are the common threads that run deep in our souls – us the iron horsemen. As story tellers for a custom motorcycle publication we are eternally aware of the importance for conveying in a positive light this lifestyle we appreciate so much. But as storytellers we are also fully aware that the words that tell our tales are much more inspiring when paired with exceptional photography that incorporates these common threads.

Say hello to Shane Russeck !

Girls On the Road

Girls On The Road

The Hartin-Berry excellent unplanned adventure

By Natalie Hartin

When you consider the amount of things we accomplish in a full year’s time isn’t it astonishing how the bike runs we participated in always remain at the forefront of our minds ?

Isn’t it amazing how we can remember, with great accuracy, the sensation we get when hearing the rumble of our engines and the feel of our two wheels turning ?

The open road is so inviting to us.

Indians Motorcycle, Sacred Ground!

Par Bob McKay

I have ridden and worked on nothing but Harley-Davidson motorcycles since the mid-1970s. I’ve owned a couple of custom shops as well as a Harley dealership back when it was still fun and exciting to be a dealer (pre 2003), so it comes as a huge surprise not only to myself but to most people that know me that I recently stepped outside my own comfort zone and purchased a Victory Cross Country Tour. What is truly interesting is that the makers of this fine bike, Polaris Industries, just happen to be the latest company in a long line of companies to hold the rights to the legendary Indian name. This escape from my “norm” has led me to experience the most exciting thing to enter the motorcycle industry in years – the release of Polaris’ latest product line : Indian Motorcycles.
