DicE Issue 41...Slicker, Hotter, Better!!!
…What can I say...it's juicy...it's warm...it's like a pair of Lionel Blair's flapping in the wind!
It's DicE Issue 41
Inside this glorious bastard of an issue you will find a variety of motorbikes from California, Japan, Texas, Brooklyn, England, Phoenix, Connecticut, North Carolina, Sweden, Alabama...and more!
The cover was designed by Tina Charad from London, England and it brings us screaming into the 1980's...wait didn't the 80's already happen?....
Not only that...but inside you will also find the much anticipated return of Barracuda magazine!!!
Our mate Ryan has some pretty good patience. I have been telling him that we will shoot his bike for so long that it was completely rebuilt...then he got another bike...and that one was completely rebuilt in the meantime. So...aka...a Long Ass Time! Sorry mate!
I've said it before and I'll say it again, space travel is not far away for all of us...wait, sorry I thought I was writing the Style Bible.

Gak's Knucklehead is downright righteous. Nuff said bro.
Our Vice Grip brother out in Texas hooked us up with the scoop on his Panhead and my, is it sweet!!

Jess' emailed me and said "Can I see the article before you run it because I wanna make sure there are not photos of my ass in it." Somehow I forgot to email her the article beforehand...I wonder why?

His third...yes third appearance in DicE! First with a crazy flathead powered Speedster, then a single cylinder Norton...and now this Harley side valve! Keep em peeled in a future issue for his 1876, Briggs and Stratton powered gyro 'copter.

This Foundry Moto Evo Sportster is a lot like a refrigerator! it's about six feet tall, 300 pounds, it makes ice, and . . . um . . . Oh, wait a minute. Actually, this bike is more like a beer, it smells good, it's looks good and you'd step over your own mother just to get one! But you can't stop at one. You wanna drink another one! And another!...
(10 beers later) So I says; "Yeah? You want that money? Come and find it! 'Cause I don't know where it is, ya baloney! You... make me... wanna... wretch..."
His name is Harley and he owns this Triumph.

I was able to persuade one of my fabricating and engineering hero's, Brandon to join DicE as our resident Tech editor!

Question: If it takes a train 22 minutes to get from Victoria station to Sutton and it does a steady speed of 18mph for 8 miles, why does it cost over 5 fucking quid??!!
Answer: Because it's England mate and you get raped on everything.

I was in Bottrop earlier this year with my soul mate Nicke Svensson when he shot this. It's LeBeef's Shovelhead and it looks like it rolled out of a Keith Weesner painting!! Lovely!

Spenser's bike is like a roundhouse-ninja-wizard-kick to the goolies!
