Daytona vintage racing, part II

Posted in Biker Sites, Daytona Beach, Florida, Links, Local, Motorcycle Pictures, Motorcycles, Photography, Racing on February 14th, 2007

Enter Coe’s toy collection

This is part II of my article about Steve Coe and Daytona Vintage Racing. After meeting Steve during bike week, I was invited out to see more of Coe’s toys at his home. Remember from the first article, that these motorcycles used to be kept in the Daytona Beach Klassix Museum.

Daytona Vintage Racing Mobile Museum

After the museum closed, Coe built this mobile museum out of a tractor trailer rig. But this trailer could only house a select few of the collection that Steve Coe has.

Collection of vintage motorcycles

Inside the old barn Steve has converted to store his collection you can see the motorcycles are still packed in for space. Displayed there is a wide variety of motor bikes, race and street motorcycles and trikes.

1938 simplex 90cc

Some of the collection are even set up high along the wall like this 1938 90 cc Simplex surrounded by trophies that Steve Coe has won or been awarded throughout the years.

More motorcycles and a Chevy Nomad

Yet another shot of the opposite corner of the building. For you car and hot rod buffs, take a note of the bright red Chevy Nomad in the background of this photograph.

Engine collection

Shovelhead, panhead and knuckleheads even a collection of engines on the shelves in the den. This room had a huge motor in it. When I asked Coe what it was, he said “oh yea, well that is a engine from a Indy car”. He has race bikes, dirt bikes, street bikes and choppers! The list just goes on and on. Coe sets up his mobile vintage motorcycle museum during Daytona motorcycle events, so be sure to look for him and say hi.

Coe and Vanessa on the Hemi Trike

I’ll end this post with a picture of Steve and Vanessa on the Hemi Trike. Fast! What do you think?

New Book Describes a Woman’s Solo Journey Around the USA on Cranky Russian Motorcycle

Posted in Biker Sites, Cool Sites, Global, Media, Motorcycles, News, Press Release, Rides, Travel on February 9th, 2007

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 9 /PRNewswire/ — Breakdowns in small towns all around America is the theme of a new book titled AMERICAN BORDERS by Carla King, which describes her solo journey around the United States on a Russian Ural sidecar motorcycle.

A motorcycle journey to explore the borders between the United States, Canada, and Mexico quickly becomes a comedy of mechanical, social, and natural disasters. King’s four-month, ten-thousand-mile solo test ride of the newly imported Russian Ural sidecar motorcycle is punctuated by cracked welds and electrical gremlins, evil tow truck drivers, roadside romances, tornadoes and hurricanes.

Woven into the narrative are the intensely personal reflections of a woman traveling alone, the Zen of motorcycle maintenance, and keen observations of America’s diverse landscapes and population. From B.C. to the Blue Ridge, Boquillas to Beverly Hills, American Borders is a unique and intimate exploration of the United States and its neighbors.

“A great read!” says Lonely Planet founder Maureen Wheeler. “Carla takes every breakdown, every weird encounter in her stride with a sense of humor, an eye for the ridiculous, and incredible stoicism. All this, and sex and relationships, too!

“Heartwarming and revealing, readers get to know and love Carla, and get to know themselves a little more in the process,” says Genevieve Schmitt, founder of WomenRidersNow.com. “She’s a true hero, smiling every mile of the way and finding humor in the worst of circumstances.”

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Carla King is the author of the popular realtime Internet dispatches American Borders, China Road, and Indian Sunset. Her writing has been published in Wild Writing Women: Stories of World Travel, Travelers’ Tales anthologies, and In Search of Adventure. Her book, American Borders, is the first in a series of Motorcycle Misadventures travelogues. She lives in San Francisco.

Shared thoughts for the day

Posted in Biker Sites, Cool Sites, Editorial, Internet, Motorcycles, Newspaper, Opinion, Rants and Raves on December 21st, 2006

I was catching up on a bit of reading, print wise. Yea, I was reading the Biketoberfest issue of East Coast Rider. I guess that’s not to far behind, considering the mag came out in October!

Any way, I found a interview in the paper about half way in with the guy that runs the B.F.F.A.R., that is Bikers For First Amendment Rights. Looks like a pretty respectable organization, check out their web site.

So, I found myself reading the online B.F.F.A.R. newsletter, which was also from October. Guess I am not the only one running a little behind. I found this story on the last page of the newsletter and felt I would like to share it with you

Semper Fi

A United States Marine was attending some college courses between assignments. He had completed his mission in Iraq and Afghanistan. One of the courses had a professor who was an avowed atheist and a member of the ACLU.
One day the professor shocked the class when he came in. He looked at the ceiling and flatly stated, “God, if your are real, then I want you to knock me off this platform. I’ll give you exactly 15 minutes.”
The lecture room fell silent. You could have heard a pin drop. Ten minutes went by and the professor proclaimed, “Here I am God, I am still waiting.”
 

It got down to the last couple of minutes when the Marine got out of his chair went up to the professor and cold cocked him, knocking him off the platform. The professor was out cold. The Marine went back to his seat and sat there, silently.
 

The other students were shocked and stunned and sat there looking on in silence. The professor eventually came to, noticeably shaken, looked at the Marine and asked”What the hell is the matter with you? why did you do that?”
 

The Marine calmly replied, “God was too busy today protecting America’s soldiers who are protecting your right to say stupid crap and act like a butt….So he sent me.”

Daytona Motorcycle Rally

Posted in Bike Week, Biker Sites, Biketoberfest, Cool Sites, Daytona Beach, Florida, Internet, Motorcycle Event Accommodations, Motorcycle Events, Motorcycle Pictures, Motorcycles, Projects, Sites I have created on October 28th, 2006

Because I have motorcycle event sites that deal in both big Florida events, I am trying to slowly consolidate all in to one site for easier navigation.

This has proved to be quite time consuming, but I intend on having a complete Daytona Motorcycle Rally site that will cover all aspects of the two events. Currently I am adding a photo gallery on both the Bike Week and Biketober edition of the site. The new photo galleries allow visitors to add their event pictures too.

I have maintained a comprehensive travel section that will help future visitors to easily locate event hotel accommodations at Internet discount prices. Motorcycle event hotel accommodations are easily found using our online hotel reservation system. Visitors will be able to easily find the best hotel rates in the Daytona Beach and surrounding area.

I am working on posting a better event schedule to help visitors plan their trip to Florida for a motorcycle event. I will be adding a bar and restaurant guide soon. Look for many exciting changes in the months to come at http://www.daytonamotorcyclerally.com/
