Though it doesn't have much to do with cafe racers, this is a pretty impressive video, demonstrating insane control on a motorbike.  Regardless of what you ride, you have to appreciate his ability to make that bike his bitch.  Looks like a damn good time to boot!

It's Better In The Wind :: Showing in LA

If you're anywhere near LA...be there!

BMW Cafes

Here at The Bullitt we tend to cover mostly British bikes with the occasional Japanese cafe making it through.  In the past we never gave too much attention to BMW's but the good guys at Cafe Racer Culture have definitely gotten us salivating for some Bavarian iron.  Here are a few selected rides:

Cycle World's Italian Adventure

I was honored to make it to the top 10 considered for Cycle World's upcoming Italian Adventure.  Cycle World was looking for motorcycle enthusiasts with blogging and social media experience.  The adventure consists of 7 days in Italy where the chosen guest contributors will attend the EICMA motorcycle show and visit to Leo Vince and Spidi's manufacturing facilities for private tours.  Three individuals have been chosen and you can follow their experiences here.

EXTRA! EXTRA! Slab City Riot 3 Cancelled

During yesterday's pre-run of the Slab City venue, city officials in the area strongly advised cancelling the event. Failure to do so, we were told, might result in significant headaches from local law enforcement. To avoid such grief, Slab City Riot 3 is cancelled.  Damn the man!
The Wuss Ride is still pulling out of Temecula, CA, at 11:00 am Friday, and will end at a new undisclosed location for desert riding and camping.
If you want to go riding and camping with friends, please visit the Wuss Ride blog for more information.
Be forewarned: What the Wusses are doing Friday is NOT an official ANYTHING. This means bring your own food, bring your own booze, bring your own everything.

It's (definitely) Better In The Wind

For the past two years we've been following LA-based photographer Scott Toepher's personal project entitled 'It's Better In The Wind'.  He's been road-tripping North America taking stills and shooting Super 8.  A few month's back we featured a video his buddy Brandon Schrichten put together while they were filming out in El Mirage, CA.

This is not some corporate sponsored deal, just a bunch of 2-wheel loving dudes, riding, camping and having a good time.  Congrats on the finished product Scott, you've inspired us all to get out there in the wind.
