This video embodies the spirit of the American biker and shines a light on what we think. If you are a Biker then you know what I’m talking about. I am going to post below, as promised, “The Biker Code” the code that should be firmly engrained on your brain! For those that it is not and our up-n-comers it is posted here for you to memorize and live by from this day forward.
“What we believe and live & die for“
It used to be that all bikers shared a common bond, an unspoken code of ethics and behavior that transcended words and was built on actions. There was never a bible written on this Biker’s Code, and there was no need for such. But the times are a-changin’ and there seems to be a lot of new riders out there hungry for the code. These days the riders you see blastin’ down the tarmac are just as likely to be clad in shorts and sneakers as jeans and engineer boots. And the roughest, toughest-looking biker you pull up next to could be your doctor or lawyer and may be wearin’ a Rolex watch under his leathers. There’s nothing wrong with that, so long as these new riders learn the Code of the West just as we old-timers did.
Being a biker used to be about using your creativity to take a basket case old hawg, and using only grit and ingenuity, turning it into a one-of-a-kind eye dazzler, then risking your life on the asphalt, on a bike you made yourself out of pride.
Bikers wore leather and grease because they knew cagers would just as soon run them down as look at them, so they had to be intimidating. We were a breed unto ourselves with no union, no support group, and in many cases, no family (they threw us out). We had to make it in the world of our own, against all rules, against mainstream society, and against all odds. You know, we survived and prospered because of the Biker Code of the West and we never took shit from anybody.
As an old scooter tramp named Jug once said, “It’s every tramp’s job to school the young. How else are they gonna know a Panhead from a bed pan?”
With that in mind, we bring you a primer on the basic two-wheeled Code of the West. Take heed, brothers and sisters, for our Code is a hallowed one filled with:
Don’t take any shit: Be kind to woman, children and animals, but don’t take any bullshit. This is an essential part of being a biker. It has to do with respect and honor. Anyone can be a brash, quick-tempered lout. Be cool, stand tall and backup what you say with action.
Never lie, cheat or steal: Another way of saying this is to always tell the truth. Bikers are always the greasy bad guys in the movies, but every real biker knows that his word is his bond. Your word is all you have in life that is truly yours. Guard it carefully and be about something noble, for you are a true knight of the road.
Don’t snitch: If you see a wrong, fight it yourself. If you are about anything, you’ll take care if problems yourself and never feel the need to snitch someone off. Snitches are the lowest life forms on earth, right up there with bike thieves. This rule goes hand in hand with the next one.
Don’t Snivel: Absolutely no one likes or respects a sniveler. Another way to say this is, “hold your mud.” Still another way to think of it is, “Don’t sweat the small stuff” Most of life’s little inconveniences work themselves out whether you snivel or not. Keep your chin up, dammit! You’re a biker, not some lowly mollusk.
Never say die and never give up: Whether it’s in a fight, a debate, or a business deal, no matter how bad it gets, a biker never gives up. That’s why you see a lot of wealthy bikers these days, ’cause they don’t know how to quit in any element of their lives. In the biker world of rugged individualists, only the strong survive.
Help others: When a brother or sister is broken down by the side of the road, stop and help them. Even if just moral support, if that is all you can give, it’s better than riding on by. Remember life is about the journey and the ride, not just getting there. You already are there. And don’t just help bikers, show the world that we are better than our image portrays us. Courtesy costs you nothing and gives you everything.
Stick to your guns: Do what you say you’ll do, be there when yo say you will. This is called integrity. This also goes back to standing for something. Like the song says, “You’ve got to stand for something or you’ll fall for anything.”
Life is not a drill: Yeah, this ain’t no dress rehearsal. This is life-go out and take big bites of it. You’ve got no time to lose and bikers don’t stand around waiting for the party to come to them. You only go around once. Tomorrow you could be road kill, thanks to a chain smoker asleep at the wheel of his Caddy. Live life now, make the most of each moment.
All right, now let’s review. You are a biker, a modern-day knight of the road. Protect the weak, walk tall and stand proud. Your word is your bond. Stick to your guns. Don’t take any shit. Life is not a drill.
Now go forth and ride When in doubt, ride. That’s what we do…ride. If you want to ride around in a Day-Glo Hawaiian shirt and sandals, go for it, but if you intend to look like a goof, at least don’t act like a goof. These commandments are just a few of the broad strokes, there is a lot more to being a biker than buying a bike. If you just buy a bike, you are a motorcyclist. Being a biker is a way of life, a proud way.
The Biker Prayer : To keep you safe when your on the road and return you to your loved ones
You don’t need decorated words to make your meanin’ clear.
Say it plain and save some breath for breathin’.
Don’t never interfere with something that ain’t botherin’ you none.
If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is to stop diggin’.
Never grumble. It makes you about as welcome as a sidewinder in a cow camp.
If you’re ridin’ ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then to make sure its still there.
It don’t matter so much how long a ride you have, as how well you ride it.
Always drink upstream from the herd. Never kick a fresh turd on a hot day.
The first thing you do when you get up in the morning is put on your Stetson.
Don’t worry about biting off more than you can chew. Your mouth is probably a whole lot bigger than you think.
When it comes to cussin don’t swallow your tongue; use both barrels and air out your lungs.
Don’t get mad at somebody who knows more than you do. It ain’t their fault.
Talk low, talk slow, and don’t say too much. Generally, You ain’t learin’ nothin’ when your mouth is a-jawin’.
If you want to forget all your troubles, take a little walk in a brand-new pair of high-heeled ridin’ boots.
The wildest critters live in the city! Trust everybody in the game, but always cut the cards.
The quickest way to double your money is to fold it over and put it back in your pocket.
Don’t let so much reality into your life that there’s no room left for dreamin’.
Makin’ it in life is kinda like bustin’ broncs: you’re gonna get thrown a lot. The simple secret is to keep gettin’ back on.
Go after life as if it’s something that’s got to be roped in a hurry before it gets away.
Don’t squat with your spurs on!
Never miss a chance to rest your horse.
There you have folks the words to live and die for a true “Bikers Code“ I sincerely hope you take these words to heart and commit them to memory if you intend to become a biker because I guarantee It is the code that many road whores like myself live by and take very seriously. I hope to see each and every one of you on the road somewhere and we can kick back and some fun together! Just memorize the “Biker Code” first so we don’t have problems when we meet.

Yet although these Harley Davidson terms have been around for many years now they are now commonly used by others when they are building their own custom choppers.In this article we look at a few of the more common terms being used today by builders of custom choppers that were first introduced by the Harley Davidson Motorcycle Company.
Term 1 – Ape Hangers are the types of handlebars to be found on many custom motorcycles which have been elevated to a height that then places the hands of the motorcyclist above their shoulders. (As seen in the photo above)
Term 2 – When it comes to the term Big Twin this relates to the size of the engine that has been installed on the motorcycle. Today in most Harley Davidson’s the engines range from a size of 883 cc (cubic centimetres) up to a size of 1584cc.
Term 3 – Another term you often here custom chopper builders talking about is the “Fat Head” when it comes to engines. This is a new sort of twin cam engine that the Harley Davidson company introduced to the market back in 1999 and which is now found on not just their own machines but on those being built by custom chopper enthusiasts.
As you will soon discover there are many other Harley Davidson terms that those who build their own custom choppers will use. Other terms that are favoured by such people are the blockhead, the fat boy and the shovelhead.

I have always loved custom motorcycles. I like anything from the simplistic to the sublime.
I like simple custom painted motorcycle jobs, racers, choppers, cruisers and hogs. Custom
Harley Davidson’s, however, are my favorite. I have dreamed of owning a custom Harley
Davidson motorcycle ever since I was a boy.I think it started off with my uncle. He was a
huge motorcycle aficionado, and an amateur custom motorcycle builder as well. My parents
oved him because he would get me off of their hands on the weekends, and Iloved him
because he was always working on something interesting. I would go over to his house and
see the garage strewn with Harley parts. My parents were extremely tedious, having to put
everything in its proper place at all times. My uncle, however, had a very different philosophy
of life. He loved to make a mess, particularly when he was involved in something hands-on.
And he was always involved in some sort of hands-on project or other. Most of his motorcycles
actually weren’t custom Harley Davidson bikes. He was a big fan of Indians, and he had one he
was always working on. I watched him restore that Indian motorcycle from the ground up and
considering most or all of the parts were delivered in 45 Gallon Drums of oil it was impressive
to say the least but I was waiting for him to build a Harley. It wasn’t too long before my prayers
were answered. He actually got an order for a custom Harley Davidson from one of the
neighborhood kids. Although there were more highly ranked custom motorcycle builders out
there, there was not anyone else who would do a good job for such an affordable price like
my uncle would.
You see, he didn’t build custom motorcycles for a living, but as a hobby. It was a labor of love
for him, and as such he would always do a solid job. That is how he got the custom Harley
Davidson order in the first place. Some kid had inherited his dad’s old bike, and wanted my
uncle to fix it. Not having the skills himself, he asked my uncle to help him out. I spent the
whole summer helping him build that bike. My body was always streaked with grease from
those custom motorcycle parts that I was handling. I was restless and grubby, but I was a
happy kid. As a matter of fact, it was one of the best summers that I ever had! Needless to say
I’ve owned my current Harley for over 10 years now and I always tell people that my biggest
regret was that I didn’t buy it 10 years earlier.
Yes it is customized but not in a show bike sense, it looks fantastic but more for touring I have
ridden my Harley through almost every major city in the USA and will continue to do so until I
die. OH! and I am going to do a full custom of my own NOT a Harley though an Indian
but fully customize from the frame up in honor of my Uncle. I love keeping up to date on new
models and other Harley news and I know my Blog Hog-Crazy will help you keep up to date

As the innovative hydrogen car kits are now entering the mainstream there is a horrendous amount of FUD (Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt) being flung around. Whether you are interested in purchasing such a system or not it’s really worth to know the facts:
Fake Fact Number 1:
Hydrogen car kits sellers say that these burn water. This is nonsense and thus this whole movement is just a hype movement.
Hydrogen car kits do not burn water, because yes, that’s impossible. What they do is that they use the car battery to split the water into its components hydrogen and oxygen and use the resulting HHO gas or brown gas as it is called.
Fake Fact Number 2:
Hydrogen car kits can’t be useful. They spend more energy in splitting the water than they do from actually burning the resulting stuff. It’s basic physics.
If this is what hydrogen car kits would be actually doing, you’d be right. However the hydrogen gas is used as an additive which greatly improves the efficiency of the gasoline burning process. Basically, the mix burns faster and thus a much smaller amount of energy is dissipated as heat and converted into useful energy.
Fake Fact Number 3:
If this hydrogen thing would be really working then the car manufacturers would’ve used it a long time ago.
This is just blatantly false. Car manufacturers are very conservative in their designs. Diesel engines for example, which are much more efficient than standard ones have been with us almost for as long as cars themselves, yet they are still in minority. We don’t want to point any fingers here, but when these manufacturers compare the benefits of an improved design with the cost of modifying their assembly lines, the cost aware argument usually wins.
Fake Fact Number 4:
The price for the components of these hydrogen car kits must be huge.
This is again blatantly false. These systems were invented by people just like you and me who were passionate about making a difference. This means that they had low budgets and they had access only to off the shelve components. This is a grassroots movement and the cost really does reflect this.
Fake Fact Number 5:
If these hydrogen car kits really are this good, wouldn’t the government support them? There is absolutely no help from the government in this direction, which means that these things are absolutely useless.
You have reached a painful truth. Indeed, the government is not supporting such innovations, but not because these hydrogen car kits do not deserve, but rather because there are no huge corporate interests and lobbyists behind them. The only initiative of this type that the government is supporting is the ethanol fuel, which is not particularly efficient (especially in its corn variety), but which has the benefit of producing huge profits for the agribusiness establishment.
These are the pure, raw facts. If by any chance you have decided to try hydrogen engine kits, you have our congratulations. A good place to find out more would be this: Hydrogen Engine Specialist
AKA: Biker Steve
An ancient Chinese curse sounds like this: “May you live interesting times”. Well, if this is a curse, then we are all doomed.
Change is in the air. A critical point in humanity’s history has been reached and people are reacting instinctively to it, some with fear, some with bravery, but react to it still.
An ongoing chapter of this transformational age is the fuel crisis. The United States in particular has suddenly woken up to the grim fact that the era of cheap oil has come to an end. The sales of gas gurglers have reached an all time low, while the Toyota Prius is the new star.
Some people though recognized that in order to face the challenges of this new age a more radical shift is needed. Enter the world of the hydrogen car kit enthusiasts. With cheap components, some handy guides and a great deal of enthusiasm they are doing what the car manufacturers have always considered to be impossible. They are reaching mileages which the Detroit car factories can’t even fathom let alone reproduce.
At the center of this grassroots movement lays an old but forgotten innovation: Basically these people are splitting water and use the resulting hydrogen-oxygen gas (HHO gas or brown gas) as a super fuel additive.
There are no clear figures on how many people have already changed their lives using this technique, but if you pay close attention to the bumper stickers that these enthusiasts quite usually sport on their working cars you’ll see that their number is nearing critical mass.
This would be one of the very few times in history when a revolution has been bloodless, but a revolution that will have a huge impact nonetheless. Skeptics have predicted the end of the United States as a superpower for decades, but these stubborn and incurably optimistic people are the ones that will prove them wrong again and again.
How many other such movements are going on right now? How many other innovations will this time of crisis bring? Nobody knows for sure.
But there is one movement you can be a part of. You can become a hydrogen car kit enthusiast too. See Run Your Auto on Water to understand how you can make the difference.

Harrisburg, York, and Hersey, Pennsylvania – Money Establishing, Motorcycles, and Chocolate
Staying only thirty-five miles from Harrisburg, PA, we had to get the obligatory visit to the Capital Developing. The money complicated is one of the most beautiful in the nation, which we have observed so much. The developing was dedicated in 1906 by Theodore Roosevelt and has been restored to its unique glory in time for its centennial celebration. The staircase is modeled once the a single in the Paris Opera Property. There were meant to be two scantily clad female statues holding torches at the bottom of the stairs. The townspeople had been offended. The architect determined to take the statues and place them in the Capital at Des Moines, Iowa. The dome is modeled soon after St. Peter’s in the Vatican. If you like marble, you will like the money. During the developing are paintings, mosaics, glass-stained windows, and ornate lights. It is not garish, but rather lovely.
Hershey is a quick 10-mile drive East of the Capital. Hershey Chocolate is synonymous with confection. What I did not notice was the selection of other brand names, which are produced there. The town has a big theme park, convention centers, stadia, and many other attractions. We went only the Chocolate World for the mechanized tour of creating chocolate. You get into cars like at an amusement park and this normally requires you because of the tour. When you exit you are give some chocolate to consume. The relaxation of the creating is stuffed with retailers, an spot exactly where young people can participate in manufacturing chocolate, a three-D motion picture and a sizeable meals court. I was blown away at the variety of people today who were there. Chocoholics of the world, unite! Of program we couldn’t leave not having obtaining presents.
