Pep Boys’ Magnetic Cup

Pep Boy's magnetic cup for all your bits that you're pulling off the bike. Bonnie Café.

Wow! Talk about a great find! Every time I’m working on the bike (aka motorcycle for seo benefits), I find myself misplacing bits. The other day I was wandering around in Pep Boys and stumbled across their magnetic collapsible tray. What a find, and it was only $3.00. I highly recommend it. It sticks in […]

Sons of Anarchy

Linc Potter's Triumph Bonneville on Season 4 of Sons of Anarchy

Having a motorcycle, I’ve found that people quickly bring up Sons of Anarchy, a show that I hadn’t watched. For some reason, I originally thought that it was a reality show – not sure why. After the 10th person brought it up, I decided to take a look. Amazon Prime has the first six seasons […]

NYC Street Corner Car Wash/Detailing

Getting the Triumph Bonneville T100 washed in New York City. Bonnie Cafe.

I live in an apartment building in New York, not a suburb with a house and driveway and water hose. I have not been able to find a self-washing facility like there were in San Francisco. As such, my only current option to clean my bike is to pay a guy on the corner. That’s […]
