What was the bike I saw in the movie?

During my childhood, saw certain vehicles in movies and ended up falling love with them. Then decided to obtain the vehicle later on ( did not really come true). But when you were a kid and have parents who did not have any interest in motorized vehicles other than as a mean of transportation, asking them what those cars or motorbikes were always fruitless.

I wish I had internet access and knew existence of this site. Internet Movie Cars Data base. It is an European based site so has some European movies I have never heard of, but covers almost all of vehicles including bikes and mopeds in movies and some TV shows. You can look up your cars if you like. This site also tells you what vehicle was used in what movies and how the vehicle was treated in the movie - the car was just in the background or used by main characters for long time- I had to look up what cop bikes were used in "Magnum Force" the other day. It was Moto Guzzi Eldorado V7 850 Police Special. I did not know SFPD had Moto Guzzi cop bike...

Speaking of Moto Guzzi....

Some of you find this site more interesting.

Sancho is back

Sancho stopped by at the garage and drunk beer with us. I was happy to see him. Maybe the best Final Friday for me ever.

Great eye candy

I was doing some research on computer the other day and found some pictures of Russian cheerleaders. (Don't ask me how I git there.) Man!! I am loving how they look. They are apparently cheerleaders for Russian professional basketball teams and often their performance are enjoyed more than the games. I would forget basket games if they are dancing...
The knee pads, cutoff gloves, great smiles and somewhat themed, exotic uniforms float my boat big time.

Russian cheerleaders are AWESOME!!
I bet some of girls have stalkers. See them perform/practice at youtube. Russian cheerleaders in action

We, Go Away Garage, support Russian Cheerleaders. Hope someone can invite them over here to perform without their basketball teams if that is possible....

Man, So Glad the Cold War is Over....

Rice burner

There are more than several occasions that my motorcycles were called Fucking Jap bikes or rice burners and such . Some (Not All) Harley riders look down on any bikes manufactured by Asian "originated" companies -I say "originated" because they design, test, and manufacture products right here in the US and hire Americans- . Those Harley lovers are fine with Non American motorcycles such as BMW, Ducati, Moto Guzzi, Triumph, and so on as long as they are from Europe...I don't really get it. I go to some motorcycle forums and they ban those Japanese bikes to be discussed and posted. You will notice many Harley riders do not wave or give thumbs up to those who is not on Harleys, either....It is pretty much like racism. And hard not to think otherwise.

I guess the bike makes the man for those guys, not the other way around. I would like to ride and build bikes that I like and fit me. I don't want to change myself to fit into certain bikes.

The Tank'o Sin

It was Mitch's installation piece for the first High Octane art show, which was held at the garage in 1997. It was part of revolving door and made it into sort of a cage for dancers. It was equipped with lighting device underneath and neon around the upper part of the glass. Any girls who would dance inside would be lit like a zombie with the green neon light...

While he was building it, a lot of people thought it was lame and stupid, but once it stood as a cage for a dancing hotties, with lighting, music and all, everyone went nuts.

Mitch tried to sell it as an art piece but was not able to find a buyer. One of bar owners in the town offered to get it with ridiculously cheap price, which barely covers the cost of material, if Mitch delivered it to him. Hahaha. It is sad to be a cheap ass. you never know who would be talking about you 10 years or more later that how cheap you were...
The tank o' sin was stored at the back of the garage for a while and later it was moved to back lot, outside storage space. Soon it was the time to be removed again and the parts will be recycled or used for something else.

The tank 'o Sin's life was over. As I take it apart and sit inside, see outside through it, I felt all the time passed in front of me since it was built.
Dean Martin passed away on the Christmas day of 1995. I learned his passing from a newspaper while I was in a laundromat. in Manhattan, KS.

Garage goons love his music, life and attitude. Thus the sign, "Dean Martin Memorial Lounge" used to hang at the office of the garage.

We still listen to his music and consume adult beverage.
