The European Tour



We're off to the UK for a few weeks to see family and shoot some stuff for the mag, so I won't be posting much here. Here's a reminder of a couple of things I love about Europe – taken at the Jokers show a few years back.

Buy this book





You can buy a signed copy on eBay right now for thirty bucks. The perfect complement to Danny Lyon's 'The Bikeriders', these photos were taken by a member of the Outlaws MC in the '60s, and compiled into this book by his daughter. Prints are from the original negatives.

Rat Day 08














It's probably the best event in Sydney, though the organisers are now victims of their own success. It started small, cool and ratty a few years back, but has now been overrun by the billet and V-Rod brigade. Anyway, we got together for the ride down (about a 3 hr round trip from where I live) and were represented by everything from a '46 Knuck to a '69 R/T Charger. Then we all went to the Carlisle Castle in Newtown for a few beers and a burger. A good day – and the Pan only refused to start once.

TOH



After punk came Theatre of Hate, with Billy Duffy on guitar (black hair!) and more Gretsches than you could throw a stick at. Listen to 'Original Sin/Legion', it's angry!
