Bike Lust: Harleys, Women, And American Society
Bike Lust: Harleys, Women, And American Society
Bike Lust roars straight into the world of women bikers and offers us a ride. In this adventure story that is also an insider's study of an American subculture, Barbara Joans enters as a passenger on the back of a bike, but soon learns to ride her own. As an anthropologist she untangles the rules, rituals, and rites of passage of the biker culture. As a new member of that culture, she struggles to overcome fear, physical weakness, and a tendency to shoot her mouth off-a tendency that very nearly gets her killed.


Bike Lust travels a landscape of contradictions. Outlaws still chase freedom on the highway, but so do thousands of riders of all classes, races, and colors. Joans introduces us to the women who ride the rear-the biker chick, the calendar slut straddling the hot engine, the back-seat Betty at the latest rally, or the underage groupie at the local run. But she also gives us the first close look at women who ride in their own right, on their own bikes, as well as a new understanding of the changing world of male bikers. These are ordinary women's lives made extraordinary, adding a dimension of courage to the sport not experienced by males, risking life and limb for a glimpse of the very edge of existence. This community of riders exists as a primal tribute to humanity's lust for freedom.

[Canon A650 raw > dcraw H7 with strong USM] A nice afternoon shot from just north of Battery Park. It probably would work better if I just cropped in on the SoL though. So I did that next... I wish that I could tell you the shooting-conditions but I have no idea without tracking-down the corresponding jpeg. I shot this raw using the CHDK hack and because of that the raw file doesn't have the EXIF info. But the lens on the A650 is 35-210mm effective F2.8-F4.8 IS and I'm sure that this is no more than ISO200. So at worst it's ISO200 1/125s F4.8 handheld. If you know how tall the SoL is from base to tip and how far away it is from the north end of Battery Park, you can do a better job of estimating. But let's put it this way: the A650 can cover most of what you could cover with the Tamron 28-300VC on a fullframe or the Canon/Nikon 18-200 on a subframe, especially if you don't mind a mild crop. Next shot is just that. Imagine taking this with a 5DMk2 and the Canon 24-105F4-IS EF-L :)...it could be done...you'd end-up with less resolution than this, though...still for Flickr that would be good enough :) shame that that lens is over 5" long and weighs almost 3 pounds when mounted on a camera. And I was on rollerblades when I took this shot. Would I go rollerblading up the A7 or whatever it is, with a 5DMk2 and a Tamron 28-300VC strapped around my neck? Hell, no. I'm not even sure that I'd take one on a bike. Another problem with DSLRs: the bad ones aren't really even worth carrying, and the good ones are too big, heavy & expensive to carry unless I'm walking. I can't just slap one in a waist-pouch and hop on my bike and roll off down the highway, now we're talking "backpack" or "luggage", at least plus now I have to either pack a shoulder-bag or carry it in my hand [and twice I've had guys, amazingly crazy, stunningly-stupid & bold guys who were just hanging on the street, try to just snatch cameras out of my hand, right on the street, fail, and then just act like nothing happened...twice. Once in DC on Dupont Circle, and once in Manhattan in Chelsea. I was so shocked that it took me 5 minutes to even think of what to do in response, right around dusk, 50 people around, I'm walking down the street looking around and some asshole walks right up to me and tries to just take a camera out of my hand, like I was standing there holding it just for him, like if he took it there would be no problems...not just an utter fucking thief but so much of a bad-ass that he could steal from someone right in their face, take something right out of their hands, and get away with it]. ********* Warning: minor "rant" follows********** Sorta saps the spontaneity out of photography. I don't mind buying and carrying an expensive DSLR and lens just to take pictures. I *do* mind having to worry about it all the time when I'm *not* taking pictures. And for Christs' sake I've been to Europe 10 times and not had half the trouble with people that I've had in the States, when it comes to cameras. Too many people in the US are just dicks, thinking that they can get all up in your shit, like they have a right to do it. Either asking stupid questions like "why do you have a camera? Why are you taking pictures?" or just plain trying to steal it. Especially with anything larger than a pocket p&s. The first part I can kinda-sorta deal with, the latter part just drives me nuts. And you always have to worry about that when you're swinging an expensive camera. Some dumb-ass is going to try to take it right off you, and they always try when I'm not even thinking about it. Sneaking right up to you trying to take it when you're not watching, like a cockroach. Especially in the US, cameras are asshole-magnets, and then if you're impolite to them in return they're ready to call the cops on you just for being there taking pictures and then telling them to fuck off when they ask you what you're doing. Dumb-ass psychopathic motherfuckers, really. Why do people think that they have the right to be rude and intrusive yet expect to be treated politely in return? Just fucking crazy. Anyway these are the kind of things that you have to deal with when you carry a camera around in plain sight, away from the obvious "tourist-traps" where half the people there have cameras. So then you have to carry it either in a pouch or in your pocket, which is fine, I like DSLR shoulder-bags, easy enough to get the camera & lens out yet secure storage & protection. It's just not the kind of thing that I want to carry while on my bike and certainly not while rolling around on blades, and when I'm out "shooting" I like to carry the camera in my hand so if I see something that I want to shoot I can just shoot it and move on. It's enough to make me want to carry a .38 in my other pocket, really. Maybe a 7" ka-bar :) Because, seriously, some people are just dumb enough to fuck with yo
Supergoose Build
Supergoose Build
I have had this rusty Supergoose for 7 or more years and have been meaning to clean it up and build it up since I got it off ebay for like $80. There have always been more important jobs to be done but yesterday I decided to have some fun. First I soaked the frame and fork in citric acid which ate all the rust off--man was there a lot of rust! Then I put the bike together with as many used parts as I had. I was gonna strip the chrome and powder coat it yellow and build it with NOS gold parts... But I have three bikes hanging in my office--all NOS and too nice to ride. Well, I wanted to ride this one so I put all my old survivor parts on it instead. I still need a rear wheel (the one there now is a front), laid back seat post and blue seat. Gonna go chrome and blue with possbily some red. I have all blue pads for it too, I just need the foam part to the frame pad. Making this thing usable again was very relaxing and fun. I suspect riding it will be too. Now I just need to find the rest of the parts. Shot this, and a time-lapse video with my G9, will post a link to the video when it is done. Mongoose Supergoose, cranks, SS bars, stem, headset. Used 42 tooth Cam sprocket and gold Takagi spider. Ararya 7X up front with sunshine hub. Fake Shimano DX pedals from 1999 Torker. Gold fluted seat post to be swapped for GT style laid back. Generic yellow seat, gonna go blue. NOS Tuf Neck seat post clamp--didn't have a used one. Will have Dia Compe brakes. Need a chain.
