So let me get this straight. Is your bike a bobber? or is it a flattracker? or is it a kustom or is it a custom? or is it old school?

I know this isn't the bike that got bent, but I saw it at the garage company site while looking for the bike in question. I like this one a lot. I've always wanted to do something like this, but with an early Sportster engine (to look vaguely like an XLR) because K motors aren't growing on trees.

So why is everyone giving this guy shit for posting about his accident? Oh is it because he posted the link to the guy who built his bike...oh I see giving credit to the builder is not cool here? Maybe its because he has a bike that was built by someone that does it well, so well that it was viewed on TV...?

Oh and on the Ed Hardy remark, yes the clothing is lame, and so is the fact that the stars are all over it. Yet just like the Von Dutch trend, it will die. When it does Ed Hardy will still be one of the greatest tattoo artists of our time, and you should not throw shots at someone for putting his name on his art. I think everyone of us that has a talent that may be viewed as art would be proud to have so many people wearing/viewing our art work on a daily basis. I would be honored to get some of my original tattoo/flash work to be reworked into a clothing line that I get a cut of every artitcle sold. Since we give our art away to people everyday, and they get to enjoy it forever. II think its just damn right that one of the fore fathers of the modern rebirth of traditional tattoos gets to get a kick back from the trend. Not his daughters that sold of his name sake (Von Dutch)

Thanks for posting your accident story for everyone to read. Sorry it happened but it does a great job at reminding us that no matter what you do and how safe you are...there is still the random asshole that does not know when to get off their fucking cell phones and realize they are not that important to where their conversation is worth the risk of someones life.

Sorry for the rant...just strikes a nerve when people trash talk for no reason. HAHAHA kinda like I just did!

I didn't even know that Ed Hardy was a tattoo artist until a couple weeks ago.. I don't know jack shit about tattoos, but I sure admire their beautiful work.
I just got so sick of that Ed Hardy clothing store and its gay people that worked there that it almost made me puke, adding to that that I saw a bunch of rad bikes in there that looked like they were never being ridden made me even more sick..
Garage Company has, and build some rad shit... That sure may be said. I just don't care for anyone who's blabbermouthing about his custombobbertrackerdraggerblablablabike in a way like in the story that started this thread.. You know... All that "pretty boy, I'm a badass" talk or whatever..
And I wish no one to get into some soccer mom involved shitty accident.. That always sucks.

My 2 cents.. period-.

I'm gonna work on my Triumph bobber now... Doh!! Hahaaaaaah!! :D

Hey Pollock, I have a Brian Setzer story you might enjoy: I was having lunch at Watson's Drug Store on the City of Orange, CA traffic circle when I needed to take a leak. When I bellied up to the urinal, guess who was taking a piss next to me? That's right: Brian Setzer. It was difficult, but I managed to divert my eyes from the stray cat that was hanging between his legs. Instead, I stared straight ahead and started humming "stray cat strut." Mr. Setzer gave a little chuckle and said, "very funny." Made my day...

And to the guy who started this thread, sorry to join the other hijackers. couldn't resist.
