4.00 x 19 Motorcycle Tires

I get a lot of questions about the tires I'm running on my Enfield. I use 4.00 x 19 front and back, however Domiracer, the supplier that used to carry these has stopped selling them so I wanted to post a few alternatives, although I've never bought from these suppliers.

Almost Vintage Photos from Bill Green

More from photographer, Bill Green. Shot on the country roads of central North Carolina. I love what Bill does here as they are almost an homage to Loomis Dean's series out of  Life Magazine.
Authenticity. Beauty. Happiness.

You may recognize the girl in these photos as our own Thunder Girl, Raychelle.  She's one of a kind.

Cafe Racer Genova Short

Shot and edited by Ugo Roffi, a member of the Cafe Racer Genova motorcycle club. Excellent vocals and instrumentals by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.

What I love about this is.... almost everything. The look of the film is like a graphic novel. The fog, the lights, the leather, the goggles, the white scarves, the old motorcycles.... And the music - freaking genius.

My Vintage helmet for sale

Ends tomorrow.

White and size large. The foam is in good condition as well as the straps. It has a good goggle snap stay that works. The markings say
"LSI-4170, exceeds Z-90.1--71, Made in USA". The only thing that's missing is the center pad which is very typical with vintage helmets. I'd just glue in a piece of foam available at any fabric store.
