Kits KULTURE Ride No.2 - MARCH 5th 2016


MARCH 5th 2016

We meet at 8:00 AM Randy's Donuts in Inglewood. KSU at 8:30 AM.

Kit's has so much Kulture built up deep down inside him... that he want's to put his Kulture inside YOU!!!

Kits Kulture Ride (no.2) Strikes Back! Everyone's welcome to attend the early morning (KSU 8:30 AM) motorcycle ride, but the destination will be a private viewing at a local museum for us (i.e., you can't meet us there and expect someone to let you inside. You gotta get there with us).  The museum itself will not be open to the general public on this date due to our event... Sorry John Q. P., you'll have to come back another day.

We won't spend all day there either, maybe a solid hour or two before you're free to boogie of join us for a HEARTATTACK BRUNCH at a nearby heart artery clogging establishment... Your body, your choice!

TACO MOTO TUESDAY 2/16/2016


Another Tuesday, Another #TacoMotoTuesday

We're still riding in the dark, but daylight savings is coming up fast, March 13th, so pretty soon we'll be riding in the light! (and of course, for me, it'll make taking photos so much easier than it is in the dark... When you don't know what you're doing, don't worry, neither do I)... This week we went to Schooner at Sunset, Diner and Bar and if tacos are important to you (as if) then you'll love their selection, especially their Farm Taco. I'll put a copy of the Taco Menu at the bottom of the post so you can see what I mean by a "taco selection." Enjoy!!!

Every week a new location (or at least alternating... ) follow IG @kultofspeed for weekly details.

I can't believe it's not Choppers (aka) FUCK THE SOLD OUT


More and more, it's getting harder to find events that haven't, to put it simply...

 SOLD OUT.

When you see events sponsored by Insurance Companies, Lawyers, Energy Drinks, Hipster Beer Brands, Shoe Companies, Cowboy floppy hats, Sock Companies... seriously and then hope your target audience still believes you're "keeping it real." No you're not. You're "taking the money and running."

The events you created we're born out of apathy, disdain, and dissatisfaction from the larger factory HOG Dealership "free hot dog saturday" events, do-rags and chaps, stock bikes and chrome polish... and now you're getting so big, you're become them. You already are them. You're now the event other people are going to create events to oppose your "sold out" events. When you look at your list of sponsors, never again consider yourself a grassroots event, because you've sold that title away. If you think you're getting "back to basics" the key word there is "basic" and that's exactly what you've made it!

If your event is "Presented by..." insert any large motorcycle company name here, then you're fake as fuck. If you're a dealership and think you can bring in the "chopper crowd" by offering free t-shirts and gift cards to the best pre-1983 "rat rod" build at "the show", then you're a parasite on the garage builder (near extinction) simply and desperately trying to drive business into your shop... and btw, the "chopper crowd" don't give a shit about you. They'll take the free beer and boogie. Give them enough free beer and I'd wager they steal* something too (because bikers are DANGEROUS... buy you need them to buy the bikes). * It's stereotyping comedy so don't get out the butt hurt cream yet...

If you're a small group of riders that has been influenced by a dealership or conned into hosting and promoting rides at your local dealership, consider how easy it would be to do exactly what you're doing without the involvement of the dealership at all... It's called DIY. Doing it yourself, and it's incredibly easy to do. Stop following the leader and lead yourself. What do they give you, that you can't do without or do on your own? Nothing, but having your bikes congregate on the weekends is nothing more than a marketing ploy to get cross traffic to notice "hey, look at all those bikes at the dealership." Hell, are you telling me none of you work at some place or own a business that couldn't use the same eye candy attention? Just because it's the Old Town Yarn Barn, doesn't mean people won't notice and talk about all the bikes in the lot... "Where did you see a bunch of bike?" at the Old Town Yarn Barn I'm telling you... "Damn. Those Quilters must be Bad Ass! Maybe I should knit myself a vest?"

Our 6th Annual Photography Book... Make Friends Not Fans


We have a limited supply on hand of our sixth annual local photography book, and it's slightly different from previous years (we're removing the bigger corporate type events and concentrating on the grassroots homegrown... now who would have seen that coming?)

100 pages, full color gloss perfect bound, 100% ad freeeeeee.... because (like I've said a couple hundred times before) ads suck. Nothing else, they suck. "But that's the name of the game." Well, good luck with that, these aren't like the others. I completely understand you might need to supplement declining sales with more and more advertisements within your pages, but eventually, everything becomes marginalized (like most major motorcycle events these days) and then it's just a copy of a copy of a copy... like most major motorcycle events these day. Wait. Did I just say that?

This is a limited release and my stock on hand will not last. Quick on the draw or miss the BBQ and get stuck with the 'slaw... Early release includes free shipping U.S., free shop rag, patch, button, and various stickers. (don't fret, there'll be more coming next month if you miss this early release).

ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY Taco Moto Tuesday (pt.2)


Just a few more tacos from the One Year Anniversary party of Taco Moto Tuesday! Thanks for everyone who came out, near or far, and braved the near-sub-almost-fridged temperatures of the Southern California coast line... It should be t-shirt weather again in another few days so don't fret if you missed #TacoMotoTuesday this week, we'll be doing it all year long! Cheers.









Huge thanks to Don The Beachcomber for the hospitality and great tacos!!! Thank you.

ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY PARTY Taco Moto Tuesday (pt.1)


Just a few pictures from this weeks Taco Moto Tuesday, which incidentally is the One Year Anniversary of TACO MOTO TUESDAY (at least as first hash tagged as a "thing" on instagram so deal with it, we know people have been eating tacos every day of the week for a long time and riding bikes just as often, but for the sake of sakes...) Started as a weekly dinner meet and ride by Kultofspeed and xwalkerx, it quickly grew into a mid-week opportunity to get out and ride for some of us (most of us) who are unfortunate enough to have to work on the weekends and probably miss more of the Saturday rides than the average "Nine to Fivers." Plus who doesn't need another excuse to drink mid-week? ...kidding


not kidding.




Large enough to hold our group and gracious enough to allow us to take over the parking lot. Thanks!




Weekly meet up is the Chevron Station on Alamitos and Broadway, Tuesdays 6:30pm. KSU 7pm.
Follow @kultofspeed for weekly details.
