Moto Goodness

GOODNESS-as defined by the Random House Dictionary: excellence of quality; goodness of workmanship; the best of anything; essence; strength. To be forthright, it's only been in recent years that this obsession of "MOTO" has truly manifest, but the love is genuine. Motorbikes, Aeroplanes, Automobiles and all that is designed, built and driven to perform is appreciated.

Star Trek & Sci Fi

STAR TREK (The Original Series) was the beginning of a life-long, love of Science Fiction and Science Fact and all other things of a Fantastic Nature. Whether it was Comic Books, Live-Action Television, Motion Pictures or Animated Cartoons, the media did not matter, as long as it was a means to transverse space and time ... or alter reality.

Hammer of the Gods

THE HAMMER OF THE GODS A metaphor for music, how it can forge, shape and mold our lives. A means to transport and transform. I'm not a musical scholar or theorist. Simply, someone who has played and listened to quite a bit of music.  Just a bloke who knows what he likes and dislikes. Also, I'm a bass player, so expect a lot of attention paid to the bottom end!

Batman Circa 1950 and Other Oddities by B Works

Saw these cool bits floating about on tumblr, B Works, Bassman's Custom Workshop of Alternative Vehicles. From what I could gather, someone having a good ol' time with Photoshop and pics of classic motobikes, motocars, aeroplanes and other interesting objects.

One Greedy Street Tracker

By way of Osaka, Japan, comes this very sleek Yamaha SR400. The fine folks at Greed Motorcycle took a domestic base model and transformed it into race tracker that is equally equipped for everyday street riding.

Go, Street Tracker, Go!


Colin Darling's 1982 Virago XV920

Honestly, when I first glanced upon the pics of this bike, I thought it was a build from Richmond, VA's Classifed Moto. Turns out that this sleek Virago XV920 is the first bike build by a Starbuck's barista / mechanical engineering student named Colin Darling.

Whether this was a first build or his twentieth, I feel that Mr. Darling has knocked it out of the park with this moto bike. You can find more details on the ultra-rad Bike Shed site. Also, the bike is for sale, for more info, contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it


Hammer of the Gods-Happy, Birthday, Jimmy Page

James Patrick "Jimmy" Page was born on January 9, 1944. Jimmy Page is the leader and guitarist of the rock band Led Zeppelin. I think that says it all. Happy Birthday, Jimmy Page!



Rust & Chrome: Yamaha XJ600

Having the distinction of being the first inline-4 with a 600cc displacement, the Yamaha XJ600 (marketed in the U.S. as the FJ600) was only in production from 1984 to 1991 and is not a bike you see being customized that often. But thanks to couple of buddies and their combined efforts and creativity, this unassuming bike has taken on a new life.

Leo and Salvatore, working from their garage Ruggine & Cromo (Rust & Chrome), have given us insight on a great platform to build upon. Not too many of these bikes were made, but this is a great example of what can be done with a bit of imagination and a few tools. Very cool bike!
