The Wan

Someday… I might buy a motorcycle for commuter / pleasure duties. Someday… It might be a Yamaha TW.

A Porsche / Yamaha hybrid…

… of the 2-wheeled variety. A Yamaha SR500 bottom end coupled to a 930 cylinder / piston / head. Unusual, heh ?

From the workshops of Kingston Customs.

Il Monstro

I always lusted for the Ducati Monster – any version – but this takes the aggressiveness and rawness to another level. Presenting the Flat Red 2, the latest creation from artisans JvB-MOTO

Maria, Maria, Maria !

I really appreciate cafe-racer inspired, customized bikes, and I’m an avid reader of the BikeExif blog. Just featured is a magnific Ducati 750SS from Maria Motorcycles based in Lisboa, Portugal. Besides the gorgeousness, I couldn’t let pass that Maria is from my home town !

No website yet, but a link to their Facebook page.ducati-750ss-5

Calendar time

It’s that time of the year when you might contemplate buying a nice calendar for your viewing pleasure. For the last 2 years, I bought different Porsche themed calendars, so I might lend you a hand in choosing one too…

First there’s the one from Bob Tilton’s werkcrew (which I bought last year). It’s still in the final stages, but it promises to be good. Check it here. Bob’s photos and approach tend to the early S / R-Gruppe / Outlaw culture and I like it !

Another one is the LKC calendar. LKC stands for Lehrenkraus Cafe and is a forum / group of Porsche minded people in Portugal. Their first shot at a calendar is a first class act and, besides, my car appears on the September page ! You can order it here.

Finally, bikes ! I have a soft spot for customized motorbikes and I’m a daily addict on the BikeEXIF site. They have produced a very tasty calendar here.

So, which one do you prefer ?
