Et tu Brute?

Beware the Ides of March- located at 7922 State St Midvale Utah lies the overburdened establishment known as Caesar’s Motorcycle Empire. Local character Caesar Boswell was connected with Draper Widowmaker Hillclimb and was a source of parts and information on many makes of bike. It’s like an Aladdin’s Cave for two-wheeled aficionados.

Forty Winks from Sixty Minutes

Spring Forward – after daylight saving bumped an hour out of the day over the weekend the body clock gets upset leaving us with a desire to continue napping. Why they still feel the need to do this I don’t know… when needs arise a cot can be found anywhere…

Forty Two

Six by Nine? Being the birthday of author Douglas Adams it’s the day to celebrate International Towel Day. We also need to consider what the Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything is. If it’s 42 then you must then ask yourself ” Well, what’s the Question?”

Uneasy Rider

Rusty Relic – keeping the chopped, stretched, hacked, hammered, sawed, bolted, welded and patina’d on the road. It probably rode straight from the Summer of Love into a musty shed for half a century.

After Arlen Ness

Psychedelic ‘Cycle – Candy colored paint scheme; long legged springer front end; drag barred steering; sissy saddled; peanut tanked; and Triumph Twin hearted. A chopper of sixties style. Kool!

Hang Loose

Bike Club: “The first rule of Bike Club is: you do not talk about Bike Club.” Ed Norton takes possession of a terrific Thruxton and signs-off with the surfers Shaka gesture.

Peanut – stretched out with a sleepy rake and hard triangulated tail that would necessitate long straight and smooth roads. Nicely built with good proportional chopper architecture. If Meriden had custom shop that mirrored the American scene of the day i believe it would prepare machines like this.

Sunny Days

Field of Dreams – late summer grass sward under a clear sky. A countryside journey’s rest accompanied by twirlpling nightingale’s singing from unseen heights.

Give me the splendid silent sun, with all his beams full-dazzling;

Give me juicy autumnal fruit, ripe and red from the orchard;

Give me a field where the unmow’d grass grows;

Walt Whitman

Synthesizer Scoot

ELP – Prog Rock piano and keyboard master Keith Emerson astride his aped Norton Commando clad in full leathers. Forming the group The Nice he developed a mix of classic, rock, jazz, blues, and boogie-woogie amongst others first on a Hammond organ and later on a Moog. I would hope he took musical inspiration whilst hating around on his black motorcycle.
