Letter from the Publisher

T

o clear up some confusion on last months last 2 sentences about a publication that lets clubs scare businesses into advertising... It was not meant for anyone or any businesses on Long Island, it was about someone else and another publication completely and we apologize to the person who thought is was about them and their new job with new publication. We here at Fast Lane Biker NY are happy when our friends expand their business and brand, we wish the best for them always. We don’t subscribe to the notion that if you're friends with one publication you can't be with another or cover the others event, that’s childish. We are happy for our friend and we always wish him the best and he does great work in the biker world

a

Fast Lane Biker NY supports the Biker Low Down Show 100%. We sponsored and attended the Ride for the Cure with Lamination Preservation and Larry with the Marine Tribute Bike. Hats off to Voc from NY Motorcycle Shows for putting on a great event and helping a great cause in Breast Cancer research.

A Virginia State trooper pulled a car over on I-64 about 2 miles south of the Virginia-West Virginia state line. When the trooper asked the driver why he was speeding, the driver said he was a magician and juggler and was on his way to Beckley, WV, to do a show at the Shrine Circus. He didn’t want to be late. The trooper told the driver he was fascinated by juggling and said if the driver would do a little juggling for him then he wouldn’t give him a ticket. He told the trooper he had sent his equipment ahead and didn’t have anything to juggle. The trooper said he had some flares in the trunk and asked if he could juggle them. The juggler said he could, so the trooper got 5 flares, lit them and handed them to him. While the man was juggling, a car pulled in behind the patrol car. A drunken good old boy from West Virginia got out, watched the performance briefly, then went over to the patrol car, opened the rear door and got in. The trooper observed him and went over to the patrol car and opened the door asking the drunk what he thought he was doing. The drunk replied, ‘You might as well take my ass to jail, ‘cause there ain’t no way I can pass that test ~~~~~~~~ Saying good bye to mother... When we were dressed and ready to go out for the New Years Eve Party, we turned on a night light, turned the answering machine on, covered our pet parakeet and put the cat in the backyard. We phoned the local cab company and requested a taxi. The taxi arrived and we opened the front door to leave the house. The cat that we had put out in the back yard, then suddenly scooted in through the front door. We didn’t want the cat shut in the house because she always tries to eat the bird. My wife went out to the taxi, while I went inside to get the cat. The cat ran upstairs, with me in hot pursuit! Waiting in the cab, my wife did not want the cabdriver to know that the house will be empty for the night. So, she explained to the cab driver that I would be out soon, ‘He’s just going upstairs to say goodbye to my mother.’ A few minutes later, I got into the cab. ‘Sorry I took so long,’ I said, as we drove away. ‘That stupid bitch was hiding under the bed. I had to poke her with a coat hanger to get her to come out! She tried to take off, so I grabbed her by the neck... Then, I had to wrap her in a blanket to keep her from scratching me. But it worked! I hauled her fat ass downstairs and threw her out into the back yard!” The cab driver hit a parked car.

NEW ROC HARLEY-DAVIDSON’S ANNUAL INDEPENDENCE DAY PARTY 8 Industrial Lane . New Rochelle, NY By: Annemarie Albate There were blue skies and NewRoc Harley-Davidson had a packed house as we all celebrated our great nation’s sovereignty at the annual Independence Day party. The bike deals were rockin’ as usual and the deals on red, white and blue bikes were as exciting as a night full of fireworks! The service department was standing room only with while-you-wait oil changes going on. Did you see the bikini bike wash girls? They were hot! They weren’t just pretty faces either, these girls were friendly, entertaining and could actually wash--plus their goal for the day was a success: raising money for ‘The Ronald McDonald House’ of New York City. Good job ladies! Thanks for the help, all the cleaning and your good deed raising all that cash. There was plenty of food to go around including cheeseburgers and hot dogs but if you missed the kabobs, you missed out. However the best cooking of the day goes to Lucky 777 Chili by Louis Santangelo. This chili has won a TON of awards, rightfully so and with a little luck it will be in stores soon so keep an eye out for it. Finally, the best words of the day came from one of NRHD’s favorite customers as she picked out a new bag for her Softail for an upcoming trip, 68 year old Ann L. of the Bronx, will be riding solo this summer to Nova Scotia says “Keep riding, ride as much as you can, it keeps you young.”. Have fun Ann, ride safely, bring us back something good!

FAST LANE BIKER ‘BIKE NIGHT’ at the TACK ROOM BAR . Bethpage, NY Sponsored by Big Boar Cycles (516) 433-9004 and ReNU Powder Coating (631) 249-7368 July 1st, 2010 . Pictures by G.W.S. Well, the summer is half over but the riding season has a ways to go, and bike nights at the Tack Room just keep getting better. If you have not been able to come to one, you don’e know what you are missing. Besides, the amount of awesome people, motorcycles, and girls that really know how to party, we always have the very fine Kim and Marie behind the bar. Those girls are always hustling to keep everyone’s thirst quenched to the rockin’ sounds of Sea Monster. This month we got a little funky with the trophys. Looking around the parking lot, I noticed some unique bikes and decided to go in a completely different direction. Ray, who anyone in the motorcycle world knows, won ‘The Bike with the Most Stuff.’ If I have to explain this one, you wouldn’t understand. Archie of Kickstart Towing won ‘The Bike with the Least Amount of Miles’ (a ‘99 Dyna with 37 miles). There’s nothing wrong with your eyes, that’s right, only 37 miles. The Spider won ‘The Bike with the Most Wheels’ and, again, self explanatory. Getting back to business, ‘Best Chrome’ went to Bronco. The ever special ‘Best Represented Club’ was taken home by Sovereign Brotherhood M.C. That’s two times running now guys, thanks for the support! On a separate note, don’t forget the cops are still breaking balls about helmets. I guess they have nothing better to do. So, come on down to Big Boar Cycles and pick up the smallest D.O.T. helmets in town, only $39.99. We’ve got some great new colors to choose from. Keep your ride looking and running great, remember, here at Big Boar Cycles, ‘We make hogs fly!’ Thanks to everyone, and keep coming back. You never know what could happen at the next Tack Room Bike Night. FTW : BIG BOAR CYCLES

AIR SHOCKS... DOES THE THEORY HOLD AIR? Well, the last thing we have to do on this custom ride, is change the existing air shocks to a newer, better set up. For once, it should be a simple job. we`ll see what happens. this bike has a PROGRESSIVE SHOCK set up on it, that kinda works, and kinda don’t. The first problem is, you have to find a place to put the compressor. As small as it is, it still ain’t small enough to find a place where it can go where you can’t see it, but still get at it with some ease to work on it to hook it up. Second thing is, you have to connect the pump to the shocks, the valves to control up and down, and a switch to make it all happen. Just too much shit to be running all over your custom scooter without you seeing at least some of it, forget about working on it. The problem is, all the small plastic air lines you need to connect everything. Don’t get me wrong, when these first came out, they were the cats ass, but leaked air all the time so you never knew exactly where you are in ride height. Not good to have your suspension lose air, and have your tire start rubbing on your rear fender, and burn the paint off while you’re puttin’ down the road. I have seen this happen, and man were the owners pissed off. That usually happens when whoever set them up did not set the rear up so it bottoms out on the stops first, before the tire hits the fender, not to mention that whole safety thing. But it does happen. So, the first thing is to get it up on the operating table, jack it up from there to get at the shocks and the bolts. In this case, they bolted the air pump to a mount on the swing arm, right above the rear shock mounts. What a pain in the ass to get at this thing, worry about it in a bit. Let the air out of the shocks first. Put something under the rear tire for support and jack it up or down to find the neutral position of the shocks where they are not loaded in either direction. Then proceed to take the bolts out, one side at a time. This can be a bitch. A lot of guys put Red Locktite on these bolts so they don’t come loose and it sucks getting them out. I use Blue Locktite and never had any come loose, but it is sure easier to get the bolts out when you need to. So, now one shock is off and the other is hanging by the air lines. Cut the lines and that is that. Remove the air pump, which is a project all it’s own, with all the wiring, and things are done down here. The valves on this bike are under the frame at the end of the gas tank, at the front of the seat. Take the seat off, pull all the rest of the air lines off at the valves. Pull the fuse from the wiring and ya’nk the switch out. I left the two valves in the holes ‘cause the fittings where welded to the frame, and I did not want to see the holes. Now we’re cooking. The rest is real easy. The new setup, from CUSTOM CYCLE CONTROLS, is a one piece setup, meaning that both shocks are

FA S T L A N E B I K E R

38


in one housing. As in the picture, it really is a nice setup. First, unravel the wires and snake them up to the battery area under the seat, let them hang out for a while. Next, the unit has an air intake tube to be installed on the shocks, so, pop that on and run it up to the same area under the seat. On this setup, the air compressor, the valves, and solenoids are all inside the housing. Pretty sweet. Someone used thier head for something else than a hat rack!! All there is to connect is four wires. Two go to ground, one is for upscope, the other is for downscope. Just plain simple, the way it should be. Put the new switch in, connect the hot wire to the center terminal, one to each other terminal, and the wiring is done. So, back to the shock setup. They tell ya’ to bolt the bike end of the setup in first with just a bolt and a washer on the outside. Do not space the shock to the frame with washers. They want it to float so it moves easy. Now you have to set your ride height up by adjusting the rods on the shock itself. With the shock retracted all the way in to the body, adjust the ends to length for ride height, but leave everything loose. Bolt them up to the swing arm, hit the switch, and let the suspension down, and check for clearance to the rear fender, and the stops. Adjust the rod ends where you need them to be so up is where you want it and down is where it needs to be. It takes a little more time than that, but you get the drift. If all is cool, tighten all the nuts on the rod ends, make sure the bolts to the frame and the swing arm are tight, too. Tie up the wires and the air intake hose under the seat. The air intake hose comes with a little filter for the end under the seat. The reason they want it there, is to keep water and road crap out of thier nice compressor. With all that done, you should be able to run the unit up and down, and check it out to make sure everything clears and works without binding. A little note here... If the swingarm end of the setup does not align with both bolt holes, you have a problem with swing arm alignment, and that is another issue. You can’t force this unit to match up the bolt holes. It will damage the unit, and you are on you own!!!!! When all is well and set up properly, this setup works very well, and are the best riding air shocks I have put in to date. A little pricey, but you can’t take it with ya’. So that’s the scoop on that one. Hope you all had a nice holiday and all is well. (Sounds a little wierd, I’m writing this and the holiday ain’t even here yet, or maybe I missed it!) Anyhow, see ya’ at the show in January, should be really cool! The boss is on the stick this year! If ya’ see me up there and have a question or two, grab me and hopefully I can help ya’. About motorcycles I mean. You’re on your own on the rest of the crap, I can’t help ya’ there, got my own voices in my head..... I think! See ya’ there.......... j.p.fager

THOUSAND ISLANDS RIVER RUN

ALEXANDRIA BAY . NY JUNE . 25TH-27TH . 2010 We arrived in Alexandria Bay on Thursday to take advantage of all the great activities it has to offer. We started out with one heck of a BBQ by Mary and Carl, and had a great time catching up with Vince Doll, Merlon, Pops, Mary, and her family. Carl can BBQ like no other, while the little Diva needed her Dasani water… You know who you are. After dinner, Nancy and I had some drinks at Skiffs and the Downtown Bar and decided to call it a night. Friday we set up early and talked with all the vendors. I was blown away by the view from everywhere in ABay; especially where our booth was located under the Pavilion. WOW! We walked around town and all the locals were so nice and biker friendly. I couldn’t believe this is the town the HOG Rally turned down for 2011, what a loss to the NY state bikers. Maybe in 2012 they will get it. Also on Friday night, Debbie, John, Merlon, Melodie, Vince, Carla, Larry, Buck, Vince’s grandsons, Nancy and I went to the Admiral Inn for dinner. They had great food and drinks and a nice patio. We went out for a few afterward, but needed to get rest for the big day ahead. Saturday morning at the Downtown Bar, I met up with the famous Sedrick Mitchell and Big J.W., who lent me a big helping hand in doing the photo shoot of motorcycles and models. We shot Buck’s black rose motorcycle from Cross Roads Custom Rides, Pat Briggs’ new Twisted, and a Frisco Style Chopper I pulled off the street from Richard Lee. Thanks to Merlon from B&M Performance for the lighting equipment. You will see all the photos real soon, stay tuned. It rained a little, but you would never know it, these bikers weren’t going to let a little rain stop them. As you looked out, they were still walking around and having fun. The rain stopped in a few hours and the party was on. We started off Saturday night by having a Miss Fast Lane Biker-Alex Bay Contest at Skiffs Bar. The girls and guys went wild and the winner was Dodi Gromer from Syracuse. There was also a men’s and women’s tattoo contest and the main street was packed. We walked around and talked to people and had drinks and a great time. Thanks to all the people we talked to, who told us they loved Fast Lane Biker NY. Sunday came too quickly. We all seemed to move a little slower that day from the late night before. We met many new friends. This event is one of the best events, with the best atmosphere I have ever been to besides our own Rally at the Rock. We’re talking bikes, views, bars, the river, boat tours, jet skis, nice area to ride through, a town that is 100% biker friendly, great locals, a down town street party, and a great host - Mary. I’m hooked. We are planning to go up for the Pirate Festival in August and the Blues Fest in September. The Chamber of Commerce web site is www.alexbay.org and here is another helpful site www.abay.com. Many thanks to our hostess Mary and the town of ABay... We will see you soon!! Remember to tell, write and email your local Harley-Davidson shop to bring the H.O.G. Rally to ABay in 2012! Frank D

KICKSTART TOWING... WHEN 30 MINUTES ENDS UP BEING ONLY 20!!

If you ride alot. there will probably come a time when unfortunately, you will get stuck. For me, July will be remembered as the month of the bad carburetor. It was a warm sticky night, with thunder clouds rolling in, and I WAS STRANDED! The day had started out fantastic, full sun, tropical breeze, bike looking like a million bucks, full tank raring to roll..........and me with a huge smile cruising down Sunrise Hwy ! I’m sure everyone has a vivid mental picture LOL. Suddenly, the carburetor goes south on me, and I was just about able to get to the side of the road. Gas was pouring out everywhere, and the skies were getting dark. As a seasoned rider, I knew there was no “quick fix”, and certainly not on the side of the road with all this heavy rain coming. So there I was, stuck on Long Island, on a Sunday evening, with a torrential rain storm on the way... I pulled out my cell phone and took out the business card for KICKSTART TOWING, that had been in my wallet forever. KICKSTART had a “live person” answer the phone, (which is on I found out 24/7) and was informed there was no price difference for weekends or evenings. They quickly took down my information and told me with traffic it might be 30 minutes, and to make sure I was safe and away from the road. I made a call to my wife, to tell her happened and I look up and there’s this custom hearse pulling up in front of my busted ride. This guy comes out, smiling , and tells me “Hope its okay I’m early.” “Hell yeah its okay” I tell him, and before I knew it, my ride is loaded up and ready to go and I’m riding shotgun in this really cool car. The whole set up and excellent service put a bright spot on a day gone wrong! Their unique vehicle makes a great “event market” that lets everyone know the location of a biker event and most importantly- NO FEAR OF BEING STRANDED! GOT SHOWBIKE? Kickstart helped the Long Island Division of the March of Dimes sell much more tickets by making it a major attraction while parked at its many venues across Long Island. Check out the pics @www. kickstarttowing.com and or be their friend on Facebook under Kickstart Towing. THANKS ARCH - signed Jimmy Jay
