For those of you that thought the Miss. Piggy Lego creation was pretty cool (see post here), there is another Lego set that will get your motor running.

We love Legos at my house and we have bought each of the girls a set for x-mas (shhhh, it is a surprise from Santa).  While they are a little young for this Motorcycle set, I bet they will one day have it under the tree.  Or maybe Dad will and they can share it.

Love, Respect, and Happy Holidays,

A Perfect Ring For The Biker On Your List

BadAss Jewelry has done it again with a beautiful new ring for that biker on your list this holiday season.  This skull ring is made from .925 pure sterling silver and has a wonderfully substantial weight that feels great on the finger.  The cigar chomping skull looks like it has been through the ringer with cracks in the dome, but we know that this tough little bugger has a lot of life left in him by the glint in his eye.  That glint is projected by a Cubic Zirconia stone in the left eye socket, which catches the light and rivals any chrome piece you might have on your bike.

Craftsmanship is wonderful as it is with all of BadAss’ products.  There are nice lines on the side of the ring that are reminiscent of the design on so many sugar skulls that are popular at the moment.  However, the design is different enough to stand the test of time and still be decorative without being dated in another five, 10, or 20 years.

As with all of the products available at BadAss, this masculine ring is a hand crafted with the finest detail.  And as you probably know, I am a bit of a biker ring snob… so if I would wear it, you can be sure that you would be proud to wear it.  And at a steal of a price you will want to head over there now to order yours.  This ring retails for $232 but they are offering it up for under $90.  And something that I did not know is that they offer engraving too.  That is a pretty cool feature, especially if you are giving this ring to a friend or club brother and want to make it a little more special.

The crew at BadAss Jewelry is very helpful and easy to work with.  Jump over to their site and you will find a downloadable and printable ring sizer and answers to any of your questions.  You can also get on their e-mail list where you will become the recipient of really fantastic coupon codes for ordering… for example, today is December 2nd.  If you order a steel skull ring with the code CE432 you will get a $15 discount… but you have to order TODAY!  And if you are interested in a Motorcycle Chain Bracelet and use the code CT337 you will get $10 off the price… but you have to order that item before Saturday… so get over there now.  Oh, and happy holiday shopping!

Love, Respect, and Biker Bling,

OK, so I have kids, you know that… and like any good father, I want my kids to have EVERYTHING!  And I want what they have to be as cool as you can possibly get.  However, although this product is pretty damn cool, you have got to make a s&*tload more than I do to even think about affording it.  And if you can afford it, why not put the cash into a rat rod that you and the little guy or gal can work on until they are tall enough to reach the pedals.  No sense in worrying about being old enough for a driver’s license.  You already have more money than god so I am sure your kid can own the road without hassle from the man.  Or, better yet, he or she can just tool around your property whenever they feel like it.  I am sure the space is expansive enough for a little track.

Hmmmm, jealous much?  Maybe… my girls would have looked pretty damn stellar in one of these jobbies.  And for any of you greasers out there who make six or seven figures, and are still young enough to have children, then Kid Kustoms has got your little one covered.

These folks make what is, hands down, the slickest and coolest baby buggy on the planet.  And while I have joked about the price, and I think you will be taken back a bit when you find out what these babies cost, I must give it to Joe Iacono and Jamie Coblentz in that they know their market and have, “Targeted to tasteful and affluent parental units…” The buggies start at $2000 for a stock model and start at $3500 for a custom job.  Now, if you still have some cash in your pocket, and your little one is still into it, you can get a pretty cool conversion kit to change this baby into one bad ass tricycle.  Now, that is gonna set you back another grand and that doesn’t include a front fender or a headlight.  And if you consider that they want close to $180 for a personalized license plate (license plate holder sold separately), then I don’t think I even want to know what the headlight and fender are going to run you.  And forget about the cool trailer/wagon hook up.

Now, maybe you buy into the cool factor and you just have to have something hip like this for your little one, but you are not willing to get a second mortgage to get the kiddo a trike.  What are you to do then?  Well, lucky for all of us, there are a few options that ring in quite a bit less expensive.  For $150 to $300 you can have one of these swanky little numbers below.  I found them at Pedal Cars and Retro Collectables on-line, but these same models can be found on plenty of other sites.

Hope you find something that is worthy of the little guy or gal… I know you want your kids to have everything.

Huh?

Yeah, that is probably the correct response in this case.  I remember how HUGE KISS was when I was a kid… I would have stomped puppies to see them in concert.  Then they went away. Then they came back and they came back barefaced… bad idea… they went away. Then they came back fully made up… better idea because it hides just how freakin’ old they all are now.  But hey, so are some of their fans.

But KISS is on the prowl and rearing to be the next, next, old big thing again… Heck, they even played Sturgis a few years ago.

It started out with my post about the new KISS Scooter… seriously… a KISS Scooter… check it out here.

And now, taking their fans old bones into consideration, KISS is putting their name and faces all over a new television… yes… a television.  “KISS is on the cutting edge of technology with these two new modern and elegant KISS LED HDTV designs,” says Janet Dwoskin, Executive Director of Licensing for Live Nation Merchandise,

Reportedly with design direction from KISS, the two newly designed KISS LED HDTV’s will be available in 32, 42 and 46-inch sizes. One has a traditional chassis and a KISS logo that appears on the TV screen at start up. The other will include the KISS logo at the bottom of the chassis and will feature a close-up image of the members of KISS at start up.

“These new lines of HDTV’s will appeal to a broader base of fans … as we continue to grow and diversify our KISS product offerings,” said Frank Weir of Roundtable Concepts, “KISS has one of the most die-hard fan bases in the world and we enjoy bringing them first-of-a-kind products.“

Ok, so that is odd… but what about the bike at the top of the post?  Well, in order to launch the new HDTV’s, Roundtable Concepts has decided to give away a KISS themed chopper.

Being called the KISS Kustom Chopper Silver Edition, according to the giveaway’s website, the motorcycle is being built and will be signed by the famous rock band before handed over to the winner at Daytona Bike Week 2011.  However, I have no idea who is actually building it.

If you happen to be a huge fan, and you happen to buy one of these TVs, let me know how it works for ya.

Love Gun, Respect, and Rocket Ride,
