Black Falcon by Falcon Motorcycles



http://www.falconmotorcycles.com/
This is the Black Falcon, the third in a planned run of ten concept bikes from Falcon Motorcycles. Like its predecessors, the Bullet and the Kestrel, it blurs the boundaries between motorcycling, industrial design and sculpture.
Love it!

Joy Division

Joy Division were an English rock band formed in 1976 in Salford, UK.
The Joy Division was a known name for areas in concentration camps (WW2) where female prisoners offered their services to the German guards.
According to music critic Jon Savage, the band "were not punk but were directly inspired by its energy".
Despite the band's growing success, vocalist Ian Curtis was beset with depression and personal difficulties, including a dissolving marriage and his diagnosis of epilepsy.
Lack of sleep and long hours destabilised Curtis's epilepsy and his seizures became almost uncontrollable;
early on the morning of 18 May 1980, Curtis hanged himself in his kitchen.
A great band!

Caribbean Buccaneers Map

The term buccaneer derives from the Caribbean Arawak word buccan, a wooden frame for smoking meat, preferably Manatee. From this became derived in French the word boucane and hence the name boucanier for French hunters who used such frames to smoke meat Hispaniola (Haiti and Dominican Republic).
English colonists anglicised the word boucanier to buccaneer.

Ruggeri for CaraibiRockers

A special thanks to Luca Ruggeri!

Gli strampalati motociclisti raffigurati nei disegni di Luca incarnano alla perfezione il variegato mondo dei 'racers', il fissato per le prestazioni, il fighetto della domenica, il cacciatore di belle pupe e il maniaco delle modifiche.
Fiorentino e autodidatta, Luca ha avuto in passato esperienze agonistiche in pista e in gare in salita nei vari campionati Italiani Sport Production.
Dopo aver arricchito con le sue formidabili vignette le pagine di Cafe Racer e RACER, oggi Luca Ruggeri  propone i suoi schizzi su MotoBlog.
Una matita di grande talento!

Once there was this rock n' roll band...



...rollin' on the street
time went by and it became a joke (Pretty tied up lyrics).
Guns n' Roses, thanks to save our life when we were young!
