Pretty funny video, if snap-on really wants this market they should start making fancy hand bags for men. Also is anyone from snap-on is reading this, please send me free shit, I hate being poor and going to harbor freight.
We’re too lazy to write posts, so instead I’ll just post the description of this new Iron & Resin video. I swear this is direct from their vimeo page. Reading it feels like being hit over the head with a liberal arts diploma by a limp wristed beardo.
“Joshua Tree, in the heart of the Mohave, is truly a spectacle to behold. Packing a few essentials, we left our home and made a hasty retreat across the inland sprawl of Southern California and into another world seeking refuge and adventure. Rugged mountains of twisted rock and exposed granite monoliths testify to the tremendous earth forces that shaped and formed this land. Joshuatrees standing sentinel, with up stretched arms resolute against the unrelenting sun. Here the golden hour seemed to last forever and we scrambled over boulders, hiked endless rivers of sand, and rode our desert sleds into electrifying sunsets.
Nights were spent under a full moon, huddled in the welcome chill around a fire, sharing whiskey and a meal among good friends. And like the desert creatures that make this place their home, we too found refuge under the desert sky. Our Spring 2015 collection is inspired by our adventures in the Mojave Desert. Yucca, buckwheat, allysum, and juniper along with the arroyos , granite and desert varnish form an impressionistic landscape of color against a brilliant sky.
For our Spring line, you’ll find rich, desert washed hues, bands of color, heavy washes and custom wovens that tell our story through color and texture and silhouettes with a style nod to our western heritage. Goods designed for rambling and wandering in a world where refuge is available for those willing to discover it.”
Saw a bunch of traffic coming to the site, thought I would throw up a handy list of our best posts of 2014. Make it easier for the new people to find our hatespeech.
They’ve started to turn on their own kind, while trying to steal our steez. This is a sign.
As it was, so shall it be again. Just as the terrible terrible chopper trend of the early 2000’s came to an end so will this hipster nonsense. Soon these urban beardsmen will move on to something new, the only trace that they were ever here will be the glut of overpriced “custom” Hondas on craigslist.
The last few years the big factories have been aiming bikes directly at lazy hipsters. The ones who can’t be bothered to find some shit heap, make it worse and produce a pretentious video about how much it means to make terrible things. They want 2nd tier hipsters and can you blame them? These well heeled trustafarians are particularly easy to part from their (parents) money. Even the Germans were trading in their lab coats for high end denim this year with the release of the R Nine T, so it’s no surprise that Ducati wants in on the act.
As it was in WWII, so it is now, the Italians simply aren’t in the same league as the Germans. BMW were smart enough to pay established bullshit artists like El Solitario to produce their videos for extra credibility. The Italians took a swing at producing their own video. The result? Well the result is a mix between a Mentos ad and a hipster bike video. They have all the elements, grating music, fake drag races, pushing over a guy taking a piss but they miss the mark somehow. There is no self importance, no talk of connection between man and machine not even a single meaningful look into the camera.
Honorable mention goes to this Husqvarna video, in which they use things like urban camping and models to try and trick hipsters into buying a modern motorcycle. They’re trying to convince these civil war beard enthusiasts that maybe a shit box Honda from the 70s isn’t the be all and end all of motorcycling. We wish them luck.
Sorry guys we’re all kinda busy and bored with the site at the moment. To all the people sending feedback and recommendations we’ll get around to reading them soon. In the mean time have a good laugh and read this, been cracking us up ever since we saw it. http://www.chinonthetank.com/2013/08/rulers-run/
“Every year towards late August a handful of rare souls converge together to wreak havoc on the streets of Brooklyn, like some horrid natural phenomenon emerging from the sea to consume an entire city. “
By which he means some hipsters from Philly went to NYC to do some shopping and attend a motorcycle show.
“Eventually we set out for food down Bedford Ave., looking as if some brutes were set loose from their cage.”
“Somewhere around 1:30, I scouted out Manhattan in search of some threads and found no traffic to be had from Brooklyn to the tunnel (our exit strategy for later that day). I made my way back to the show and met the rest of our group.”
Uggh don’t you just hate it when you come back from a shopping trip empty handed.
Been a long week, so lets take a break from all the hipster nonsense and watch a video that makes us smile.
This one is personal for me, when I was a teenager in the mists of time (the 90’s) one of my brother’s idiot friends had a GSX-R 1100 with a turbo strapped on to it. A bike so ridiculous that I’m pretty sure I have PTSD from it, so while cruising around you tube I came across the video and couldn’t help but smile and shudder at the same time. Enjoy the madness.

A lot of people have confused us making fun of pretentious assholes for us hating vintage bikes. This is not the case, one of us rides a 1955 BMW regularly and we hold no hate in our heart for old bikes. So for once we’re gonna post a video we actually like. Weird choice of music though.
The dudes at Revzilla are stealing our shtick! Hey guys if you haven’t noticed my name ends is Esq. that means I’m a lawyer, and I can practice law in several small central American countries. Send us free stuff (list of gear will be emailed) or we’ll sue!
P.S. I do a pretty good Anthony impression, “Hey thisisanthontywithrevzillatv where you can WATCH, DECIDE & RIDE”
Running low on videos to make fun of, so here, have a bunch of cringe inducing pics instead.
Please stop writing your name on other peoples work, I get it, you started your “shop’s” instagram before you did any actual work and now you have to fill it with pictures. But stop, you didn’t “build” this motorcycle. You slapped on a stupid seat and threw away the battery, this is still a Yamaha. This would be the equivalent of every kid who slapped a spoiler on his civic changing the Honda badge to his own name. You ego-maniacal assholes.
