Nice video about the Cannonball Motorcycle Ride.

Synopsis: Ride along with Hot Rod Builder and Award Winning Filmmaker Brian Darwas as he travels coast to coast on the ultimate antique motorcycle endurance run, “The Motorcycle Cannonball”.

Witness as these bikes are pushed past their limits! Get an upfront look at parking lot engine rebuilds! and watch as the top guys in the motorcycle industry machine parts in the back of their vans to keep their bikes on the road, and in the race!

“I followed some friends as they rode on the first Motorcycle Cannonball. The run was all pre-1916 motorcycles. Some were single cylinder engines, some had no transmissions (just a belt and a tensioner). They started in Kitty Hawk, NC and rode clear across the country to Santa Monica, CA. Literally “Coast to Coast”, on all secondary roads, no highways! . . and since I like to witness pain and suffering I tagged along and made a movie about the trip.” – Brian Darwas

Directors’s Bio: Brian Darwas is a well know fixture in the Hot Rod community, and the Award Winning Director of both “The Road to Bonneville” and “A Sweet Sickness: The Flathead Movie”
Building traditional hot rods since around the age of eighteen, Brian has been digging up old steel and turning it into hot rods over on the East Coast for nearly a decade. During this time Brian has turned out a number of cars, none of which have ever failed to impress even the most jaded Hot Rod Aficionado.
Aside from building traditional hot rods as a member of The Rumblers Car Club in New York City, Brian has also traveled the world as a musician, most notably playing bass guitar in the New York City based Street Punk/Rock ‘n Roll band “The Disasters”.

Please find attach this video :

The W1910 Basque coast.

Friends, Bikes, sun setting and magic occurs… W1910’s the witness through the eyes of Graham Kuhn.
The essence itself of W1910 lurks here, hidden between muffer roars and those moments of grace of this day ending..
Smells like motor oil, hands in grease and poetry.

Have a good ride.

Video Reminder. Be carefull out there this weekend.

Stuff like this really pisses me off. I once almost planted my front wheel at 70mph on the interstate when a big flatbed dropped 5 or 6 pieces of sod right in front of me. I had a friend get killed years ago from a ladder falling out of a truck on a bridge. Remember, there is a lot of shit not tied down and this is the second busiest weekend for people moving all year. Ride safe folks!

Three fantastic Moto Guzzi Video’s from our regular commenter and aficionado William Ferry.

I’m just going to let Bill describe them… Fantastic Stuff!

This lovely thing is, in my view having studied them for years, the BEST all -round tasty.. I’ve ever seen. I would have it in a heartbeat.
[2] Also attached I hope, is a lovely little film taken at the Guzzi factory, at some gathering or other.. of a famous Guzzi technician and cafe owner.. [name escapes me.. the joys of getting older..].. he starts the bike, and the joy on his face and the rasp of the bike is a total wonder to behold. Lovely.
Now FGS let them thro’ and.. just enjoy them.

[3] I’ve added the last one as, a guzzi fan, you should see these things [ sorry, I’m not being pompous.. it’s a love affair and I love to show like minded people..]
Bill Lomas was my lifelong hero. And he knew it. We were friends for years and I loved him dearly. A great guy.. he had a wicked sense of humour and told terrible, outrageous stories. I miss him still. Ah well..

Oh my… The sound of this bike is just sublime..

this last one just make so happy that I live in the age of Youtube.
