We will have the Born-Free booth out at the Willow Springs raceway this weekend. Posters w/ tickets will be available for the BF6 Bike giveaway promos. We're racing a 1951 triumph pre-unit. Come by and wish us luck (We're gonna need it!).
It is kind of crazy that "Brat Style" is kind of a household name in reference to a certain style of custom bikes and it was all started by a guy in Japan named Go Takamine and his shop aptly named Brat Style. Even if you don't know him, you've seen pictures of his bikes all over the internet over the last 10 years probably. This year is a big year for Go, not only is he an Invited Builder for Born-Free 6, but he is also moving to the LA area next month! His build this year is around an new S and S knucklehead motor and a lot of European flair. Follow Go on Instagram HERE
April is Check Your Helmet Month according to your friendly neighborhood pirates over at Harley Davidson. Did you check your helmet Jax Teller?
What's that? Half of your helmet is missing. You got jacked my man. Does that make you mad?
Woah, no need to get aggro. I'd be mad too if I bought a helmet that didn't protect my majestic 90s buttrock Van Dyke. Luckily, there's helmets out there with just as much freedom, but look after that mug.
Meet the Airframe Statistic. ICON likes guns and motorcycles too, you can be friends:
Pictured: Peace through Superior Compensation
And they make helmets that protect your face. Do you know that 40% of all helmet impacts are to the face and jaw? It's true.
This crash statistic was heavily referenced in the 1981 study The Hurt Report. The initial study was done by Dietmar Otte of the Hannover Medical School for the Department of Traffic Accident Research in Germany.
They even made a new helmet called the Airframe Statistic with those very crash numbers on it.
Looking after your face and your cool guy status. Makes you pretty happy right?
Don't worry about your half helmet, and you're 3/4, it was an adorable choice while you rode with it.
Thanks again Harley for National Helmet Check Month. Going to get a lot of people to wear the right gear. Who knows, maybe SOA will try out those sweet new Street 750s, or something rad like a V-Rod.
Looks like Tequila Corralejo has jumped onto the correlian spice freighter with us for this years STAR WARS DE MAYO party and ride at the Gasser Lounge! They're throwing in a $100 BAR TAB* for the BEST Star Wars de' Mayo Costume... picked by none other than Mikey and the Lady Hump. And you should know we're pretty "far out man" as interpretation goes, so mix it up; Mexican Star Wars and creativity will earn you a higher chance of winning than just your 501st Legion Stormtrooper costume... So all you SW nerds that live in Grandma's house and instead of girlfriends have boxes of Star Wars Kenner action figures (that's me!), memorabilia, and cosplay costumes... it's time to get it on!!! The glove has been thrown down. (*no cash value, prize good for booze and/or merchandise only)

Who knew the Lady Hump built fucking Death Stars in his spare time??? Jimm'iny Christmas.
