A few weeks have passed since the 75th annual Daytona Bike week and we have finally gotten a second to breath. In the last few weeks, I have gotten a lot of content up for you all to peruse. I spent some time and got my Victory Octane review up, as well as the new one from the Indian camp. Click through to check out my thoughts on the Springfield. Hell, if you guys are in the market for a small truck, check out the GMC Canyon Diesel review that I posted (If for nothing more than the photos. I am real proud of the way they came out).
I was blessed enough to get to join in with Indian Motorcycle and Victory for many of their events down in Daytona this year and I was able to snap a few photos of the great day I had with the Indian Motorcycle Rider's Group as we headed inland to check out the Standard Motorcycle Co in Orlando.
I was on the new Springfield as we rolled alongside veteran Marine, Sean Carroll aboard his Champion Scout Trike. This was a pretty special thing to be a part of. As many of you know, the Veterans Charity Ride donated a Scout Trike to Mr. Carroll this last winter. He is back in the saddle and riding like a stinking BOSS. It was really cool to be able to ride in formation with him as we ran down the road toward Orlando....

You might know the Guy Martin name from one of the craziest things that happens on two wheels: The Isle of Man TT, or he may have worked on your lorry. Either way, the man is iconic and ballsy.
From this set of photos, and this little video, it appears that he is out to join the very small group of folks that count themselves as part of the fraternity that has actually ridden the wall. I witnessed the WoD last year at the Handbuilt Motorcycle Show in Austin, and let me tell you that it is nothing short of amazing.
On March 28th, Guy will ride a radically big Wall of Death and try to reach 100mph on the wall, which, should, by all accounts, put his brain in his boots.
If you are in the UK, chick it out on Channel 4 at 7:15pm on March 28th. I will patiently wait and catch it on the Youtube like a proper American.
