BMW - What Went Wrong?

In this picture 55 years separates my R50 from the rest of these modern beemers. As much as I love the dependability, capability and advanced technology that they have come to represent, they have lost the plot in the aesthetic department. When a German machine looks identical to it's Japanese competition (I'll concede I'm speaking in broad terms here but the point is still valid) someone in the design studio needs to pull the chute. I'm only being this critical because I love the purity and genius of my ancient boxer (I'm not talking about designing something retro here) and I wish I could describe the modern BMW in the same way. Maybe "Teutonic" should still be a part of the company's visual vocabulary.

"Diesel Above Clouds"

I Recently visited Chicago and with a spare moment decided to go check out the Art Institute. I had been before but never seen this piece by Georgia O'Keeffe - the museum's largest work. It's massive and like a lot of her work I dug it. It gave me that same feeling as traveling in a jetliner high above the clouds - kinda trippy. Here's what the net had to say about the piece - "Sky Above Clouds IV". Turns out that's exactly how she wanted me to feel.

O’Keeffe worked almost until the very end of her long life. In her 70s, she took her first trip by airplane. From 30,000 feet, she was inspired by the extraordinary view of the clouds below her and later produced Sky Above Clouds IV, the largest painting of her career. To make the work, she stretched the huge canvas across the outside of her garage, painting from dawn until the last light of the sun dimmed at night. To reach the top of the canvas, she climbed a ladder and for each of the lower levels, she stood or sat on a special platform: a table, a box, a small Mexican chair, and finally, the floor.

Gettin' "It"

In the days of the white shop suits, a little electrical tape on the wheel and a race built top loader were about all you needed to be considered a man of purpose. I miss the days before the invention of the sub-woofer.

Thank You Mr. Phillips

I first noticed one of Rich Phillip's bikes at Sturgis a few years back. What I've seen of his work so far has been really nice - he's built my favorite 45 that I featured a few weeks back in a Daily Sled post. I had lost track of his name since I took that picture but thanks to a ZON regular - (COLE thanks!) I'm back in the know. I did a little research and came up with Rich's blog too. Check it out for even more cool shit.
