The First Real Mayans MC Motorcycle Riding Shot Has Been Revealed

Kurt Sutter has just revealed the first motorcycle riding shot from Mayans MC,

and it is officially time to get amped for the Sons of Anarchy spinoff.

The 56-year-old writer-director took to Instagram on Thursday evening to release the all new snap.

Sutter captioned the photo: “Camera test day at the Salton Sea. @pardojd @claytoncardenas. These ain’t no dynas, carnal. #mayansmc @harleydavidson #apehangers #spiritanimal.”

The image shows two of the stars of the offshoot series – JD Pardo and Clayton Cardenas – on their bikes donning their signature Mayans MC leather getups.

Pardo will be portraying the lead character, Ezekiel “EZ” Reyes, while Cardenas will be stepping into the role of EZ’s older brother, Angel Reyes. This is the first real picture of any members of the cast in full costume and geared up for action.

Also starring in the show is Emilio Rivera, who portrayed Mayans MC president Marcus Alvarez in the original series. Kurt Sutter recently spoke out to explain how integral Rivera’s role has been in the transition between the two shows.

“When this other project was coming up with the Mayans; [Rivera’s] my linchpin in fusing these two mythologies,” he said. “It’s so great to be able to work with him again, and be around that energy, because it reminds me that this is why we do what we do.”

Earlier this week, SOA creator Kurt Sutter also teased his fans with the first look at the motorcycles with a closeup shot that showed the Mayans MC emblem on the bike. He shared the photo with the caption: “And so we ride. #mayansmc #saltonsea.”

Check out the official synopsis for Mayans MC below:

Set in the aftermath of Jax Teller’s death at the end of SOA’s seven-season run in 2014, Mayans MC will focus on the struggles of Ezekiel “EZ” Reyes, a prospect in the Mayan MC charter on the California/Mexico border. EZ is the gifted son of a proud Latino family, whose American dream was snuffed out by cartel violence. Now, his need for vengeance drives him toward a life he never intended and can never escape.

World’s shortest getaway ends in instant Karma

He didn’t think it would turn out this way. The hard part was over, he had successfully lifted his target, all that was left was to drive off and count his reward.

Driving off turned out to be harder than he thought.

This Live Leak video (via Youtube) shows a man in black ever-so-carefully get off his scooter and steal a purse from a woman’s car. She doesn’t see him as she is pumping gas. The thief, in all his stealthy glory, gets back on his scooter and speeds away for a clean getaway.

Only it wasn’t clean.

Within seconds, dude crashes into a wall.

The YouTube description says he was arrested. I wonder if he was charged with terrible driving and overall stupidity?

Asshole Driver Who Swerved And Hit A Motorcycle Finally Sentenced To…

Remember that asshole who ran two motorcyclists off a Texas two-lane in 2015, then had nothing to say besides “I don’t care”? Local news says he’s now been sentenced to 15 years in prison.

William Crum, 69, was arrested on Oct. 19, 2015 as video of his egregious road-ragery went viral.

The original clip as since been taken down, but the internet never forgets:

In the clip, recorded near Granbury, Texas you can see motorcyclist Eric Sanders and passenger Debra Simpson powering up to pass Crum’s late-’90s Mercury Cougar on a double-yellow lined section of straight road. The car swerves hard laterally and wrecks the bike, which is simply identified as “a Kawasaki” by local news.

The Star-Telegram reported that Sanders escaped with minor injuries, but his passenger Simpson was hospitalized with a broken arm. It’s unclear whether the bike was totaled or not.

Crum, who has reportedly been in police custody for the year-and-a-half since his arrest, will now serve 15 years prison time for “two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.”

The Star-Telegram also figured out that Crum had previously been “convicted in 1994 in Somervell County of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and in 2007 in Somervell County of reckless driving and making a terroristic threat,” the latter of which apparently was related to threatening to run little boys over with his car.

F this atrabilious asshole. And you too if you can’t wait to comment “yeah but no-passing zone!” Somebody riding by a little faster than you appreciate doesn’t come close to justifying potentially lethal vigilante. Looks like the judge agreed with my sentiment.

Watch: Drunk Redneck Attack Group of Bikers. Instantly Regraded!!!

Group of bikers pull in for gas and redneck comes flying into the gas station in red truck and hops out, talking trash, while one biker tries to calm him down.

He walks over to other biker and asks “did you do it”,

biker replies “off course not” and proceeds to attempt to get gas and is then sucker punched, before he turns around and realizes he was hit, the original biker put redneck on his ass.

He crawls on the ground as the rest surround him and hides behind his wife till he can get back up and starts talking more trash.

Eventually his wife informs us he has been drinking and he is known to do this. State trooper rolls by and bikers flag him down. Trooper informs bikers that he has had problems with same guy in past and that he was surprised bikers did not MAUL the redneck.

If he was TRULY concerned about his kids, he would not have been driving drunk and speeding passing cars to catch up to bikers.

Motorcycle rider left passenger dying in ditch

A Sheridan man pleaded guilty on Thursday to two felonies in connection to a motorcycle crash that killed a woman from Aruba.

Scott Graening pleaded guilty to failure to report an accident involving death and to aggravated driving under the influence of alcohol, in connection with the Oct. 24 death of Kerstin Bobst, 63, of Aruba, who died from injuries sustained when she apparently was ejected from a motorcycle in rural Ottawa.

As Graening stood in court wearing a denim jacket with a Harley-Davidson patch on the back, prosecutor Jeremiah Adams read that witnesses would have testified that Graening seen to have ridden his motorcycle out of a ditch. Later, they would testify, he would have been taken to the hospital where a toxicology screen would find his blood-alcohol content exceeded the legal .08 limit.

Witnesses also were going to testify that the sheriff’s department received several calls the following morning, including from Graening, that there may have been another passenger on the motorcycle when it crashed. A search of the crash site found Bobst’s body.

West Virginia Senate rejects repeal of motorcycle helmet law

West Virginia’s Senate has voted against repealing the requirement that motorcyclists wear helmets.

The bill, advanced by two committees, was voted down 19 to 15 after several senators cited data showing more and worse head injuries for riders who crash without helmets with injuries others end up paying for.

It would allow riders over 21 to decide about helmets. It was amended to apply only to those who had a motorcycle license at least five years or passed a safety program and at have least $15,000 of medical insurance.

Sen. Mike Woelfel, a Huntington Democrat, says the bill is “otherwise known as the organ donor act of 2017.”

Sen. Patricia Rucker, a Harpers Ferry Republican, says lawmakers should allow people to live their lives and the no-helmet bill is pro-tourism.

Unfortunately, it is time to also make sure the bikes are in the best shape possible, including making sure the bike has no needed recall work.

RECENTLY, MOTORCYCLIST ONLINE MAGAZINE REPORTED FOURTEEN HD MODELS ARE BEING RECALLED FOR A CLUTCH THAT MAY NOT DISENGAGE.

AFFECTED BIKES INCLUDE MODEL YEAR 2016

*UPDATED: 3-28-2017

THE PROBLEM.

The problem is described by Motorcyclist as the clutch master cylinder may lose the ability to generate enough lift to disengage the clutch. The problem is more pronounced if the motorcycle has been parked for an extended period of time.

The clutch issue is problematic because if the clutch cannot fully disengage, the motorcycle can suddenly lurch forward without warning and cause an accident.

FOR THOSE OF US NOT BLESSED TO LIVE IN YEAR ROUND RIDING WEATHER, IT IS WORTH CHECKING OUT IF YOUR BIKE IS AFFECTED.

THE SOLUTION.

HD will perform an inspection and flush the system and rebuild the master cylinder, free of charge if the bike is affected.

Per Motorcyclist, owners may contact Harley-Davidson customer service at 1-800-258-2464.

Harley-Davidson’s number for this recall is 0169.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to safercar.gov.

Riders may also check the HD website. The site  compiles data on HD recalls since 1999 and is updated regularly. On the site riders have the option of being directed to safecar.gov or can list the vehicle identification number on the site to research a particular bike.

 

Biker & Double-Amputee Marine Veteran Joins Police- Motivation of the Day

Matias Ferreira, a 28 year old motorcyclist and Marine Corps Veteran just became the first double-amputee to hold a full-time Police Officer position in the United States.

The Afghanistan War Veteran was sworn in as an officer to the Suffolk County, NY Police Department on Friday,

March 24, 2017 after having just completed 29 weeks of police training at the Suffolk County Police Academy on Long Island. Ferreria was a Lance Corporal in the Marines in 2011 when he was injured; he lost his legs just below the knee during a nighttime operation in Helmand Province, Afghanistan.

6 years ago, Ferreria was leading a team at a compound of suspected Taliban fighters when he jumped off a roof and onto a hidden bomb. Within three months of his injury and amputation, he was up and walking on prosthetic legs, and now he is a rookie Police Officer in the great state of New York with his very own patrol car. Along with being a Police Officer, Marine Veteran, and motorcyclist, he is a scuba diver, a skydiver, and he’s played on a softball team of wounded Veterans like himself.

Hear more about Matias and his incredible story below, in an interview he just did with Fox & Friends, and tell us in the comments section if you think he’s truly an inspiration. On behalf of BON, we’d like to congratulate Officer Ferreria and wish him the best as he embarks on his journey with the Suffolk County, NY Police Department!

 

 

MOTORCYCLE CRASH FAIL COMPILATION, FIRST TIME ON A MOTORCYCLE!

While it might look like riding a motorcycle is as simple as getting used to a bicycle with a couple of extra horsepower,

that most certainly is not the case.

Many nuances make riding a motorcycle a lot more difficult of a job when all of that extra weight and power really comes into play.

This time, it looks like somebody took the liberty of compiling a whole group of folks who went to head out on a motorcycle for the first time and simply weren’t ready for whatever the bike had the offer whether they would be whiskey throttling their way down the street or wobbling around until it fell down.

One thing is for sure, if you’re a motorcycle enthusiast, this one might hit you where it hurts as all these folks go down and do some big-time damage to the bikes that they happen to find themselves riding on. Some of these newbies were simply not ready for what they were about to try and carry out.

Check out the video below that shows a whole variety of people who probably should have probably done a little bit more learning and observing before they decided to head out and try riding for the first time without those handy dandy training wheels. However, I guess that falling down is definitely one way to learn how to ride.

 

RIDER DESTROYS THE “TYPICAL” HARLEY RIDER STEREOTYPE

Normally, when you picture a Harley rider and a sports bike rider in your head, the Harley rider is one to casually cruise on wide open roads in nice weather, letting their hair blow in the breeze while the sports bike rider.

might be more about going fast and carving up more crowded areas, potentially splitting lanes.

However, it looks like the rider of this Harley takes that stereotype and throws it straight in the trash, navigating his way through traffic, splitting lanes and bobbing in between cars on a rainy day and even doing a little bit of full throttle pulls when the weather turns for the better.

This just goes to show you how different bikes can really be depending on exactly who it is maneuvering the machine while sitting behind the handlebars. I’m not sure about you, but this video really seems to be a good reason to think a little bit more about something like a cruiser if you’re more of a fan of a sports bike!
