“Black” may be the new “Chrome”, but it still don’t get you home

Oh dear! Where to begin? If Harley-Davidson seriously think that the continuing direction signalled by their MY2016 offer is going to keep their dealers, employees and investors happy in the long-term, then they are seriously deluded.

And the Story behind the Brand

Dumptruck Works the Vest

The 5-Ball Racing team has always been a team effort. We set a few World Land Speed Records, and we’re going after more. The team portion of the equation remains intact with the apparel line. Teams are tough. Humans have a tough time dealing with egos, success, money, you name it. In many respects the Dharma rule of any team is to avoid all those issues at all costs. I’ll attempt to explain.

Leather and models and bike shows, oh my!

    Note: Bikernet.com asked for a piece on what I do during a typical custom bike show weekend. Here is an overview of the Long Beach. By Jeffrey Najar
The J&P Cycles Ultimate Builder Weekend in SOCAL
The weekend starts at LAX

My job is promoting companies in the Powersports Industry through promotions and publicity, as well as by producing custom bike shows.

In late 2014 I flew into LAX to produce the J&P Cycles Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show, which was installed down the center isle and on the red carpet of the Progressive International Motorcycle Show. This was the 4th show in the 1tth show series.

I always look forward to coming out to the City of Angles because I stay at the Bikernet.com HQ in Wilmington, CA. I bring a bottle of single barrel Jack Daniels and sit down with Bandit and whoever-is-around at the end of the day to have a couple of shots, recap the day and fix the world’s problems.

This year I invited Edge Continue reading “Leather and models and bike shows, oh my!”

Phoenix, AZ is known for Baggers. And when the J&P Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show rolled into Phoenix, the Baggers rolled out for the International Motorcycle Show and into the Custom Show.

Big wheel sleds from Sideshow’s Cycles, Insane Asylum, Spooky Fast, Bagger’s Inc., Torch Industries, Stellar Cycles and Brian Jenkins of Hatred Industries all had something to offer. And with all that fire power, only one Bagger took a win. Bananas!

Love Ride, 5 Ball Racing Leathers & the Mean Streets of LA

Late night flight into LAX
Late night flight into LAX

I flew into LAX late Thursday night and was picked up by my partner Bob Kay.

    By Jeff Najar, Biker Pros Partner

I ducked my head to see who was in the car and found Bandit of Bikernet behind the wheel grinning ear to ear. Kay was riding shotgun and Ray Wheeler was taking up residence in the back. Once we all got loaded, we had 850+ lbs of beef and 300 lbs of luggage dragging the springs of the black Ford rental.

The boys waited on me for dinner so after I got in, Bandit slammed the accelerator and we shot off into the night looking for a late night dinner. We zipped down the mean streets of Los Angeles on the hunt… blasting down the streets, popping over curbs and blowing through lights.
