I was never lucky enough to know you personally Marco, but you managed to radiate so much of your personality both on and off the track that I really feel like I’ve lost a close friend today. What an unbelievable tragedy.
Rest in peace.

Retro Wednesdays:
Bit of a lazy post today, I’ve been pretty busy. I don’t know much about this machine, and I forget where I found it, but I think it speaks for itself really.

The Spies Method, it works evidently.

Oh, BTW, I hate you Simoncelli.

This MBX 75 was done up by Kiddo Motors out of Spain. The choice of such a micro-bike initially made me think this was something from the boys at Deus Bali, it’s bratstyle in skinny jeans.
I’ve mentioned before that I’m not a big fan of branded tank logos, and this case is no exception, I think the big flying Honda’s on this tank are terrible. My buddy disagree’s with this assessment, he likes the decals, and he was kind enough to photoshop the logos out in order to convince me:

But that plan backfired: I think anybody with eyes can agree that this is much nicer.
Thanks Charles for sending this bike my way, and I’m sorry you were wrong about the decals! Haha
[via Ottonero]

ED - Charles is upset that he can’t share his two-cents on his reason for liking the decals, so I’ll do it for him:

The decal breaks up the surface because otherwise the tank would be the only large unbroken surface, and in that context I feel they had to put some kind of graphic element in there so the Honda decal made sense.

So there you have it folks, both sides of the coin. He’s still wrong of course :)

My two favourite riders are on top of qualifying for the Assen TT! Simoncelli made pole, and Spies was only 0.009 seconds off his time.
Marco better not shit the bed on launch like he did when he got pole in Catalunya: I really feel that if he grabs the holeshot here he has the talent to pull away from the crowd like Stoner's been doing for the last few races. It breaks my heart whenever he screws up like he has been consistently for the first part of this season, he's carrying the hopes and dreams of tall guys everywhere!
Anyways I don’t want to jinx it. Here’s hoping for a good race tomorrow!

Add this CL360 by Cole Foster at Salina’s Boys to the growing list of bikes I shouldn’t like, but do. It checks pretty much all the boxes of things that annoy me on traditional customs:
Hardtail - Yep
Chromed Out - Yep
Straight Pipes - That too
Front Brake - Of Course Not!
But why can’t I stop staring at it? Maybe because it’s prettier than Zelda Williams, that’s why.
That seat is genius. I’m sure I’ve seen something similar on speedway bikes before, but in this case not only does it look classy: it also does triple duty as an electronics nook and also a functional rear fender.
Also, it always warms my heart to see a meticulous custom like this being driven sideways.
