Mods n Rockers

Like all the mods n rockers events it was a good time. Good to see many if my friends, good to be around like minded people and especially good to be around allot of bitchin bikes.

Jesse Fox rolled in on this little Italian Nugget of goodness - beautiful!

Mellow gettin before the rain...

Hi Paul and his super terrific trump!

More pics to come...
I left around 3ish and got caught in that awful rain storm. I didn't really mind until I got to the 76 turn off and entered a cloud. Absolutely horrendous and dangerous but made it out alive and a few new skills were gained.

Beer Breed

Funny thing about Atom from Beer breed is that we worked in the same industry but he pushed beer out of trailers and I pushed beer from a computer. Forward a few years and I met Atom through the first Beer Booter. Super cool dude, brothers, or maybe cousins from another aunt - how would that go? anyhow, Atom is top notch and puts on tons of little rides throughout San Diego and beyond. Literally kin to my heart this guy likes bikes and knows allot about them. But not only does he love bikes he rides them - Allot and that is what its all about my friends. Although a beer booter himself he always lends a helping hand in sponsorship and is a pretty damned cool dude to drink with.
The company Bear Breed - kidding! "Beer Breed" is an after market moto supply house that not only caries main stream chopper / HD aftermarket parts from some of the biggest names around, Beer breed also specializes in hard to find vintage parts. Need anything for your period correct bad ass chopper give this guy a call, he will get it: BEER BREED

Mods N Rockers San Diego

I go almost every year.
The first year I went I wasn't cool because I was on a 66' Honda, the second time I was cool because I was on an old Triumph Cafe that I built, Third no one would talk to me because I was on a Chop that I built and then I showed up on a BMW R100 cafe that I built and every one laughed. I was very confused. From where Im from studded leather and funny hats meant you were a very ghey man, which nothing is wrong with that, its just well you know, I didn't understand and still am confused! After that I showed up on my Triumph thruxton and lots of up turned noses because it wasn't vintage, so I then skipped a few years but mostly because I offered to make Guinness an official sponsor but whats his name was to kool for skool and he pissed me off by acting as if I was bothering him. So I decided to take a few years off, but I was talked into going last year just to hang with the Spokes and had a decent - well boring time but it wasnt because of my pals, it good seeing friends and old bikes. The event is in new hands now, I know they are trying, heck they have one of the biggest events around so all I can do is wish them the best and give my full support. I personally wont ride in the packs so you wont see me on the ride, fucking accordion rides arnt for me - too many kooks, allot of Vintage Iron that people didnt build themselves and only ride when they can be seen or is it scene? Anyhow, Ill see ya on Sunday at Hoolies if your going, buy me a beer please, I will need one!

Hope to see everyone there, what makes this event it is hanging with all of my good friends, checking out Vintage Iron and the ride there and back.

Hell On Wheels

Hell on Wheels guys just added themselves to the sponsor line up for the Beer Booter Bonanza...

What I now about Hell on Wheels; well they put on Rad events, they know allot of my friends, they have pin up girls, bitchen striped shirts and ride bikes that I like - support HELL ON WHEELS or else!

This thing is Rad!


My Great Grandpa was a Raider fan, My Grandpa is a Raider fan, My Father is a Raider fan and Im a Raider Fan and hopefully my son will be a Raider fan- Its just the way it is when your entire family grew up in a town fifteen minutes outside of Oakland. Theres always Next year!


I met these guys a few years back at the firs real big Biltwell event called the Chop Meet. I was sort of camped out next to them doing half arsed security for the Biltwell gang and had a chance to talk with Andy and his crew for a bit about their killer Trumph they had parked in front of their tent. I couldn't take my eyes off of it, knowing they built much of Bills Triumph Chop he rode around at the time, I already had mucho respect to say the least. Flash forward a couple years and I made friends with Ryan at the first Biltwell Bash, I love his triumph so much, even broke in the back of his truck. I was just amazed by the simplicity and cleanliness of the bike, just to find out he was an employee at Classic Cycles and just a few months later there were pics of him Jumping that tangerine beauty.
Here's a little bit about the shop Classic Cycles, pay them a visit to show your support:

The combination of hops in this beer creates a distinctive but not overpowering hop character.

Seasonal Beers To Try

Lagunitas Lil Sumpin Sumpin: India Pale Ale: 7.3% ABV: Year Round: 6pks
Sneaky Smooth with a Touch of What we Call Wheatly-esque-ish-ness. Crispy Wheat and Pale Malt flavors with a Zippy Hop Finish. A Return of the Brand-Spankin’ New Beer From The Summer of 2009. ABV: 7.3%

Lagunitas Lil Sumpin Wild: 7.8% ABV: Limited Release: Draft & 22oz
Another Big Sister of the Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’ Ale.... Loads of Malted Wheat for a Curious Malt Foundation and a Light Color, But Our Belgian Yeast Leaves a Huge Flavor and Complexishness. ABV: 7.8%

Lagunitas Brown Shugga: 9.8% ABV: Limited Release: Draft only
How Come you Taste So Good?? Boatloads of Pure Brown Sugar in Each Batch, That’s How! The Rich, Roasty and Mysteriously Drinkable Ale might best be described as... Irresponsible. It Leaves a Lot of Stories in it’s Wake. 9.8% ABV

Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout: Stout: 9.2% ABV: Seasonal Release: 22 oz
A big, dark Imperial Stout brewed with plenty of dark malts, roast barley and loads of Sebastopol’s Hardcore Coffee for even bigger roasty flavors and that extra kick. ABV: 9.2 %

Left Coast The Wedge: Black IPA: Seasonal Release: 22oz
This winter seasonal is in the style of a Black IPA. It has the characteristics of an American IPA in having intense bold hop flavors with a twist of dark malt bringing out the roasted chocolate flavor. Three different types of hops and imported dark crystal malts are used to maximize this flavor and create fresh hop taste and aroma. It is dry-hopped in the fermenter to give it its great hop aroma. This brew was meant to be consumed immediately upon opening on that cold winter evening.

Karl Strauss Full Suit: Belgian Brown Ale: 6.3% ABV: Seasonal Release: 6pks
Full Suit is brewed with the changing seasons in mind. Firm toasted malt and roasted nut flavors are underpinned by a hint of vanilla that comes from aging the beer on French oak. Belgian ale yeast adds a peppery, fruity character to the beer’s slightly dry and warming finish, making it perfect for the (kind of) cold Southern California winter.

Karl Strauss Big Barrel Double IPA: Imperial IPA: 9% ABV: Limited Release: 22oz
Is an intense West Coast IIPA for hop lovers. Abundant imported New Zealand hops give these medium-bodied ale fruity citrus and white grape-like flavors over a firm maltiness. It finishes dry with a lingering bitterness. 9%; 90 IBU

Karl Strauss Parrot in a Palm Tree: Baltic Porter: 8.5% ABV: Seasonal Release: 22oz
Replacing To the 9’s, this year’s holiday release is a Baltic Porter. Aged two months in San Pasqual Tawny Port barrels, the resulting brew isn’t for the birds. This winter warmer boasts a complex bouquet of dark fruits, espresso and chocolate, with hints of oak in its warming finish. 8.5%

New Belgium 2 Below: Winter Warmer: 6.6% ABV: Seasonal Release: Draft only
Pull on your wool socks and crack open a 2° Below Ale. This tasty winter warmer started life as a small batch beer brewed for the Al Johnson Uphill Downhill a telemark ski race in Crested Butte, Colorado. The Uphill Downhill celebrates the exploits of Al Johnson, letter carrier extraordinaire, who delivered mail by ski in the late 1800s. Dry hopping during fermentation creates a floral nose with a hint of pepper and spicy, subtle undertones. 2° Below provides a bright, hoppy palate and a cheery warm afterglow. 6.6% ABV. 32 IBU.

New Belgium Vrienden: Collaboration Beer: 8.5% ABV: Limited Release: 22oz and Draft
Meaning “friend,” in Flemish, this beer is a collaboration with Allagash in Colorado. Brewed with endive and hibiscus, this Belgian-inspired ale is then inoculated with lacto bacillus and brettanamyces. A ruby-hued beauty, Vreinden opens with a bouquet of hibiscus sailing a sea of pale malt toward a dry and slightly sour finish. 8.5% ABV

Beers To Try

Here are some seasonal beers to give a go. I've had most, not all but I wasn't disappointed with any of them that I tried. Keep checking back for the next three days I'll put up a new list.

Anchor Bock: Bock: Seasonal Release: 22oz and Draft

Bock Beer is an ancient and mysterious part of the brewing tradition. Over time, the term “bock” has come to mean a beer darker and stronger than a brewery’s “regular” brew. Virtually handmade by the brewers of Anchor Steam Beer, we hope you will find Anchor Bock to be a rich and flavorful addition to our offerings.

Alaskan Smoked Porter: Porter: Limited Release: 22oz and Draft
Smoked Beer. Known as "rauchbier" in Germany, smoke-flavored beers were virtually unknown in the U.S. until Alaskan Smoked Porter was developed in 1988. The dark, robust body and pronounced smoky flavor of this limited edition beer make it an adventuresome taste experience. Alaskan Smoked Porter is produced in limited "vintages" each year and unlike most beers, may be aged in the bottle much like fine wine.

Alaskan Barley Wine Ale: Barley Wine: 10.4% ABV: Seasonal Release: 22oz and Draft
Full-bodied ale , deep mahogany in color and brewed with any array of complementing malts to achieve its high original gravity. Multiple hop additions in the boil and dry hopping during fermentation provide contrast to the big malt character resulting in the smooth balance that distinguishes this specialty brew. Like many fine wines, Alaskan Barley Wine may be aged in the bottle and gains deeper malt complexity and smoothness over time.

Coronado Red Devil: Imperial Red Ale: 10.7% ABV: Limited Release: 22oz and Draft
The Red Devil is a full bodied Imperial Red Ale with deep roasted caramel flavors, subtle hints of chocolate, a soft hop presence and a lasting finish. A few sips of this empting brew will be sure to bring out the Red Devil in you! 10.7%ABV

Coronado Winter Brew: Winter Seasonal: 8% ABV: Seasonal Release: Draft
Our annual holiday beer is a sweet medium-bodied ale. Brewed with cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and ginger for the perfect seasonal taste. Celebrate the holidays with our "Seasons best winter brew." 8% ABV.

Deschutes Red Chair: Northwester Pale Ale: 6.4% ABV: Seasonal Release: 6pks
Red Chair Northwestern Pale Ale is named after the oldest operating lift at Mt. Bachelor in Central Oregon. It has a plush body with satiny caramel flavors derived from seven varieties of malt. Yet, despite it all, it remains a hop-forward ale with that distinctive citrusy punch. Just minus any mouth-puckering bitterness.

Deschutes Hop Henge: Experimental IPA: 9.0% ABV: Limited Release: Draft
Several pounds of Centennial & Cascade hops are in each barrel with a heavy dry-hop presence to top it off. A blend of crystal, pale and carastan malts creates an overall biscuity characteristic that is dense and muscular, building the alcohol base to support the monstrous hop profile.

Firestone Velvet Merlin: Oatmeal Stout: 5.5% ABV: Year Round: 6pks and Draft
Small batch oatmeal stout with cocoa, espresso and chocolate flavors. Won a Gold Medal at GABF in 2010 for barrel aged brew. Used to be called Velvet Merkin—now Merlin. Same beer, new name! More on order.

Full Sail Wreck the Halls: India Pale Ale: 6.5% ABV: Limited Release: 22oz
Wreck the Halls is a holiday brew to end all holiday brews. It is aggressive and sublime, assertive and mellow, complex and drinkable, and has a lot of hops in it. It is an American style IPA crossed with a winter style strong ale. The finest Pale malt along with Crystal and Caramel malts gives this beer a sweet malt body and red color. he famous Centennial hop is used to give this beer a pronounced fruity-citrus character. The beer is dry hopped (the process of steeping aging beer on fresh hops) for three weeks, which amplifies its aromatics and flavor.

Green Flash Grand Cru: Belgian Style Dark Ale: 9% ABV: Limited Release: 22oz
Belgian Style Dark Ale inspired by traditional Abbey Ales to deliver the richest of malt flavors but with a slightly elevated hopping and increased complexity given from two different yeast strains. This malt laden ale is designed to satiate and keep your taste buds dancing.

Guinness Black Lager: 4.5% ABV
Made with dark-roasted barley, fermented with special lager yeast and cold-brewed at sub-freezing temperatures, Guinness Black Lager is the perfect choice for lager drinkers who are looking for a full-flavored alternative – especially Guinness draught drinkers who also enjoy a refreshing lager. New item – only available in San Diego and Chicago in the US.

Guinness Foreign Extra Stout: 7.5% ABV: 4pks : Year Round
Brewed for more than 2 centuries, Guinness FES dates back to 1801. The fullest in flavor of all the Guinness variants, Guinness FES is carbonated, not nitrogenated. The specialty beer is 7.5% ABV and possesses strong, roasted aromas followed by a unique & bittersweet taste. FES is already a favorite of many around the world, making up 45% of GUINNESS sales globally, and it is sure to be a favorite of beer aficionados here in the US – already receiving an A/A- from and 96 from Ratebeer.

Real Time at Ballast Point

Stopped off at Ballast Point today to grab a keg, had me a Sculpin IPA or two and called it a day.

Great ending to a shitty start!

Triumph Simplified Wiring Diagram

On top of all my BMW builds I'm also (with the help from my wiring pal Whompy) going to start digging into my triumph in order to simplify things up a bit.
Ive never had blinkers and such, so it's time to get rid of all the handlebar controls, put a new headlight on and clean out the middle - with my new TAB tank coming I should have the bike I have always wanted...about time five years and 40k plus miles later.

Hell On Wheels 2010 Video

Support these guys and buy their calendars. My BMW had a cameo when it was parked at the slab - Hell on Wheels 2010 year in review.

Get'in it on...

This guy gave me some good info a few years back about BMW's, invited him for a Beer but we lost contact. Not only did he know a bunch about these bikes, he could rid'em. Picture perfect -perfect form.

Wednesday, January 5, 2011


As Im sitting here looking at this bike thinking those fucking Italians, they are literally famous for making the most beautiful bikes and cars on this planet and they come up with this thing - Really! Every little rockabilly / thruxton half helmet dildo is going to love the color combo but all I can say is WTF are you blind! an Italian bike trying to look like a back yard southern hot rod boot, when is the last time a fuel injected bike needed pipe tape - did they map it for that, I certainly hope so....fucking lame!
I do like the lines of the VY Guzzi and I have always been a fan of Moto Guzzi in general. I can admit that Ive never met one or an owner of one that I didn't like - but until these assholes from Moto Guzzi much like their American brethren Harley Davidson start to get a clue I wouldn't ride this monstrosity if it were given to me - well maybe, let me take that back; that is if everyone could wait til I touched it up with some flat black paint and loaded up with a bunch of stupid bolt on "cafe racer" parts, ordered my ton up tee, wore my red handkerchief sticking out of my back pocket, rolled up my jeans and joined the Brit Iron Rebels then it may be worth it.
Anyhow, I haven't seen one yet, so I'm sure they thought this thing through or maybe someone punched the designer in the face; either or I'm sure some 30ish nerd dude is sitting on his computer right now imagining himself with full retro gear sitting on this thing thinking how bad ass he will look taking his M1 license test on this.
To close, to the 30ish wannabe IT dude, no worries, if they dont end up bringing this to the states, you still are ok, buy yourself some vans, designer jeans and flannel, get yourself a shiny new sportster and fill it up with every cool "in the now" bolt on you can imagine, then cut the fenders so you can call it a custom and become a member over at chop cult - lol

Alright! I admit it, im in a bad mood, I have to go back to work tomorrow -


This bike, maybe my favorite earning real beer booter points using the stock tank - its simply delicious like a rubios fish taco...
