Check out the “goings on” at the Buffalo Chip this August! Folks, you
2am Philadelphia. We have business in Dallas Texas all week, so we are on the BLOODSHOT eyes flight. We land in Dallas, way too early to check in so we do a little sightseeing. Now we are hitting 2pm and the Mothers day brunches are coming to an end, and the bikers begin to gather.
This is where is gets fun, they are all heading to Rick Fairless’ Strikers Dallas.
Now keep in mInd, it’s Sunday afternoon, Mothers day… you’d think it would be almost empty. So we pull up in our geeky rent a car only to find no parking, apparently Mothers day wasn’t a good enough reason to avoid Strokers.
From the amazingly detailed show room with all of it’s characters, custom motorcycles, and images to the exterior wall murals everywhere & statuettes, your brain just can’t take it all in.
Along with the outside entertainment, Rick has the Strokers Ice House serving amazing fun food, all types, all beers, all great.
Bottom line, don’t just think about going to Strokers Dallas, make it a goal. Sunday (today) was excellent fun, my next visit will be on a rockin’s Saturday and for that visit I will have a motorcycle under me.

Salut à toi American rider,
Every year, during the week-end of Easter, I use to attend a very
sympathetic rally which takes place right in the center of France, in and
around the beautiful city of Bourges.
This rally of 3 days is organized by my friends of the ACETYLENE MOTO-CLUB.
A little local MC (County of BERRY) dedicated to old motorcycles. I’m lucky
enough to attend this event as their “official” photographer.
The ambiance between the attendees is simply amazing. When you come to this
rally, you know you gonna have fun, technical talking, speak English (many
guys come from UK), see amazing and rare old bikes, have 3 beautiful rides
on the roads of France center and naturally have great food and wines.
As oil …
And of course, many others …at least around twenty different motorcycle
Thus, you understand that this rally mixes all the ingredient to make it a
great moment of fun and give a real good time to the all attendees.
This is why I strongly recommend you come with me for the edition 2020.
We’re awaiting for you my American biker friend.
Hervé, your French biker friend.
If you love riding motorcycles, you probably agree that the best part about winter is when it’s over. And for those of us in the Midwest, there’s no better way to give Old Man Winter that final kick out the door than to hit up the Donnie Smith Bike and Car Show presented by Dennis Kirk at the Saint Paul RiverCentre.
As usual, the show was a lot to take in, with attendees roaming the exhibit halls like kids in a candy store. After watching everyone drool over the entries, find treasure at the parts swap and meet some of the biggest names in the industry, here were some of the bikes, cars and moments that stood out to us.
The Loss of a Legend
As soon as the show opened Saturday morning and attendees started to pour in, it didn’t take long for word to spread that the world of custom motorcycles had lost its king, Arlen Ness, just the night before.
To the Donnie Smith Show family, Arlen Ness was many things—a hard worker, a creative genius, and a fellow Hamster—but above all else, he was our dear friend.
Losing Arlen the night before an event in which he has been so engrained wasn’t easy, but in a strange sense, the show acted as a gathering that held his spirit. Spending two days surrounded by some of the people who knew him best allowed us to recount old stories, laugh, cry and celebrate his remarkable time on this earth.
Rest in peace, buddy.
