Quaker Steak & Lube JJ’s & Norwich Cruise In Life in the Fast Lane




Letter from the Publisher Hello “FastLaneBiker NY Family”, August kept our wheels turning in the Fast Lane... Our travels took Fast Lane to the beautiful Hawaiian island of Oahu where we were honored to ride with a large riding family made up of Hawaii's motorcycle groups. Awesome ride!! Check out more of our story on page 36. From Oahu, we ventured to JJ’s Cycle in Watervliet, NY to join in on the Tuesday Night Bike Night with Thee Yankee theme. Awesome bike night Buzzy! On to Quaker Steak & Lube’s Bike Night in Syracuse, NY where the bikers came in by the hundreds to “Beat the Record” from the previous challenge. Quaker Steak & Lube throws a really great event. Moving on... Fast Lane Biker helped put together the Norwich Cruise-In for bikes and classic cars. For the first one, this event turned out great. Check out Octobers Cruise-In. From the Cruise-In, ventured to Seeber’s Tavern in Smithville Flats for their Summer Social/Pig Roast. It’s always a fun time with the group of bikers that show at Seeber’s events. We also checked out the Rockin’ Roadhouse in Mount Upton, NY. Their event had Bag Lady Sue, who is a National Adult Biker Comedian. Great crowd!!! Way to go Ty!

FAST LANE FEATURE... by Michele Kilburn

Located at the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains, offering the best riding in Upstate NY, you can stop in grab a cup of coffee, view products, check out Heritage Swag and see their latest builds. The first two builds have been sold and are with their new owners, The Patriarch and Chin Gon, both were labors of love not only for the customer but for Phil and Brian too. The Patriarch was a combination of Phil & Brian’s vision of what people want to ride, it took approximately 90 days to complete and sold in less than 60 days! See photos attached.

Wednesday Night August 15th


Quaker Steak & Lube in Syracuse, NY held their annual “Break the Record Night” for bikers in the area and Fast Lane Biker-New York was there to join in on the awesome event! A bunch of vendors came early to set up and prepare for the crowd. Among them were Rob’s Cycles, Granby Cycles, Strip Club Choppers NY, New York Rider Magazine, an Electric bull riding machine with Budweiser, 95X, and Camping World promoting.

The bikes started pulling in and lining up as the crowd formed by the stage to hear the kick-ass band, “Under the Gun” rock them. They mastered songs that I haven’t heard bands play in years! Great job!!!

Bike of the Night

The parking lot was now full of iron horses and the hundreds of riders were checking out all the machines as they walked through the rows of the herd. Each Bike Night, a “Bike of the Night” is selected and the winner gets a key to relax in the Camping World VIP section where you are served food and drink at the next bike night. I was honored to be able to select the “Bike of the Night” on the Break the Record Night. So many nice looking bikes filled the event and after looking at them all, I selected the second bike that pulled in the lot. The winner was Dave Williams, who rode in on his 1950’s Triton (Truimph-Norton) with a 1962 rebuilt engine. Congratulations Dave! With the count building, the record to beat was 1,426 and by the end of the night, it seemed to be close, but the total fell short at 1,082. We’ll give it hell next year, so mark your calendars now and get the word out. Great job to the Quaker Steak & Lube staff who served the masses and put together an awesome Bike Night! by Brian Gage

"On Vacation at Bike Night" by Susan Foster There's nothing like a bike night in a different town. My husband and I are from Crossville, TN (originally from NY) so we were up visiting friends and family. Our good friends, Paul and Donna had invited us to JJ's Cycle bike night in Watervliet, NY. I have to say, every bike event is filled with amazing people and amazing bikes! While I was walking around and taking pics, I talked to so many riders from all walks of life, tellling their story. Its fun to hear where they live, what they do and about their bikes. One girl had "diamonds" very carefully glued to her bike - all over.....lots of Bling! This bike was entered into the bike contest along with my one of my favorites - a Drifter with white walls! I fell in love with the Indian motorcycles last year at Americade and recently found out the Drifter is a close match to the Indian. So they must of had around 8 bikes for the contest and 4 different categories to vote from, modified, custom, antique and favorite. That was hard to choose, there were some really unique looking bikes in the contest. Along with looking at bikes, listening to loud music (which goes hand-in-hand with bike events) JJ's Cycle theme that night was New York Yankee's....over $800.00 in Yankee merchandise was given away by owner, Buzzy Teson. Dan Murphy started out the night with a trivia contest. These men and women in the crowd were out to win with their answers - raising their hands, yellng out answers! They were out to win! Over in the corner of JJ's Cycle parking lot was the food hamburgers and hotdogs and the watch dog to clean up anything that might possibly fall to the ground. Next in line was Dave Clarke, from Cohoes, with his amazing pinstriping. That’s an art in itself! You can find him on Facebook. We each bought a t-shirt from the East Coast Riders to support The Community Hospice. We can only be so thankful for the groups willing to help others out like this! Fast Lane Biker was set up with there magazines and a young girl was selling her jewelry that she had made herself. JJ's Cycle's garage was filled with bikes being worked on, which was pretty neat seeing all these bikes up on lifts. We really enjoyed ourselves, the food was good, voting for the "best" bike in all categories took a little bit of thought, talking to so many people about their bikes, I now have a few more idea's for my bike......and now that we know JJ's Cycle has these bike nights the 2nd Tuesday of every month until Sept. we'll be back up to attend this bike night and others. Great job JJ's Cycle!




Bjorn Viking Chopper Design & Fabrication: BjornVikingChoppers Artist/Painter: JB Grafix Custom Painting Inc. Seat: Paul Cox Industries Engine: S&S 113 Sidewinder Pipes: BjornViking Choppers Chrome: DGM Custom Chrome Frame/Wheels: RC Components Front End: American Suspension Transmission: Baker 6-Speed Controls: Acutronix

Story: The Viking Chopper bike was started in March of 2005 in the Dining Room of my home and was completed January 2010. This bike is a tribute to my father who turned 100 years young in November 2011. This was my first attempt at fabricating a custom motorcycle. I had very few fabrication tools when I started this build so I acquired them during the build. I had never welded before therefore I set up my welding shop in my Living Room. I learned how to MIG and TIG weld during this build. Did I mention that I was single at the time? The Viking Chopper is representative of true Vikings heritage. It includes Viking swords (front and back), a battle shield, maces, and lots of points. The rear fender was cut out and painted to resemble a Viking helmet. The overall graphics were chosen to represent various Viking battle scenes. The left side of the tank depicts a summer battle scene. The right side of the tank depicts a winter battle scene and the top of the tank depicts an at-sea battle scene. There is Viking scroll work all over the frame, tank, rear fender and front end. My family tree is documented in Viking Rune script down both springer forks. This was a project of love and dedication for my Norwegian heritage and I’m glad I did it.

There is going to be a new article added to the magazine of the Fast Lane Family, called “Life in the Fast Lane.” This article will cover events of the Team’s travels outside of New York State. The first article is from the island of Oahu in the cities of Waikiki and Honolulu!, Hawaii. My travels for work have taken me to the island for 3 weeks. Of course, on the weekends, I just had to rent a Harley!! Where else would I go, but a Harley dealership. There I met Sonja Johnson of the rental team as well as a member of the Pacific Knights Motorcycle Club. She filled my in on the numerous clubs on the island and pointed me in the direction of the Ray Pagan and Street Bikers United Hawaii who broadcast all the events on the island for all the bikers groups to see. A member of the American Legion Riders –Chapter 79, Chuck Patterson contacted me about their 4th Annual Legacy Scholarship Poker Run. The event raises funds for scholarships for the children of fallen service members. He was happy to accommodate the story and photo opportunity for their event. The event started Sunday morning, 8am at Cycle City Harley-Davidson and traveled to 4 locations before ending at the Oahu Veterans Center. Riders departed in small groups because the traffic on the island is too busy for a lot of us together. Fast Lane Biker took off with a couple members of the local HOG Chapter- Windward Oahu. The president, Carl Kaleugher, along with Steve Loretto, Erik Heins, and “Wild Dog” Takenaka teamed up with me for the run. Our first stop hit the Hawaii Extreme Paintball Club where everyone took their turn on some targets. The best shooters got to try their hands in a Texas Hold em’ tourney at the end of the run. After leaving the paintball range we, stopped at Club J&C Lounge, the Bronco Bar and ended at the Oahu Veterans Club to complete our poker hands! The Veterans Club is there for the many veterans that live on the island. The best poker hand won a great prize, but I had no chance with a 10-high.



Once at the end, I was honored to meet such great people in all the local biker groups. One of the first groups that pulled in was the Buffalo Soldiers. The president, “Slice” and his cabinet were all present. Other members from the Pacific Knights were present and I met Mary Bashaw, who had sent me a message about the event. The Legacy Vets, Rough Riders, C.I.A., and Templars were among the other groups that joined in. Chuck Patterson took over the event crowd with his personality, which was perfect for being behind the microphone for the event. I was introduced by Chuck and got to tell everyone about Fast Lane Biker and I was honored to be a part of their cause. There was great food, excellent music from a local band, prizes, and games for the riders (slow Ride and tire toss). The Texas Holdem’ winner “Polecat,” won a 90 day rental from Cycle City H-D. Now that’s a prize! Fast Lane Biker – New York would like to thank all the riders from the island of Oahu for the great hospitality and the invite to the event for a great cause.

New Exhaust Systems

NO, louder does not mean faster or better performance. Most people change their exhaust for one of two reasons... The first is to make it look cooler and the second is for performance. In most cases just changing the exhaust will just make it louder and piss off the neighbors. When changing to a more free flowing exhaust, you must also match an air cleaner to it and either add a power commander or reprogram the bike to make the bike run right. Short drag pipes make the biggest difference, while some slip on mufflers will need no changes at all. The loss of back pressure can cost you performance and horse power when the new exhaust is added. You will want to tune and rejet the carb. With EFI models you will need to be remapped to offset the lack of back pressure, most people use a power commander. To get the right setting you must also know if you’re looking for a low to mid-range performance or high end torque. Your exhaust is not just an expensive chrome noisemaker. It regulates such things like exhaust gas velocity, thermal, and sonic pulse. We do not want to get too deep into it, let’s just say you need back pressure. When adding a new exhaust, you will need to check on everything you will need to make the bike run like it should. Don’t complain that the other guys or girls are running faster and better than you if you just put an exhaust on and nothing else. P.S. Have you serviced that bike yet?

On July 27th, Fast Lane Biker – New York had the pleasure of being part of the 1st Annual Norwich Cruise - In, held at the Howard Johnson in Norwich New York. Thanks to Dana Meyer, General Manager of Howard Johnson, Linda McNeil and the Norwich Merchants Association, it was a HUGE success! There were tons of bikes and show cars/trucks for all to see. Thanks to the American Legion Riders from Post 189 who helped to park everyone. Vendors set up with all their goods, even Fast Lane Biker, many raffles, food from Karolyn’s Krossroad’s Cafe, awesome music by RockStar DJ, Northeast Classic Car Museum, Oneonta Freebirds MC, and the incredible Marine Tribute Bike from Mr. Larry Tremblay. Out back of Howard Johnson’s the “burn out pit” was set up. There were only a few bikes that took a chance, but with all the smoke, it seemed like more. Scott Oaks won the best burn out. Winners from the show were Mike King, Jim Daily, Walt Davies (who won two categories) and Joe Locavio. The weather was awesome and everyone enjoyed the night. Fast Lane Biker – New York would like to Thank Dana and her awesome staff for supporting us and Thank You to Fred and Yvonne Huntley for their help running our booth. We are all looking forward to the next Cruise-In coming up next month on October 12th. by Paula Monroe
