Busted and Broken - Center Punched

I got into an accident in December of 2007, when a drunk driver turned in front of me. Long story short, I totalled that Suzuki truck like it got hit by a comet. My injuries are so extensive it sounds fake. I tore the aorta in my heart, ripped my brain, and crushed my arms, back, ribs, femur, not to mention shredding my tendons and ligaments as well as multiple bones. And that wasn’t the worst of it!

I tore my organs up: there was no reason for me to be living and breathing. My chest crushed in the gas tank on my Ninja 636. I was so swollen that  they cut me open and pretty much gutted me. To this day I have a 2 foot scar like an alien coming out of my stomach. I was in Stony Brook hospital for over two months and St. Charles for a month of rehab. I have over 6 feet of metal in my arms, hands, legs and 2 titanium experimental stents in my heart keeping me going.

And the best part is I didn’t have one scratch on me (ha ha!). All in all I made a 100% recovery - I do everything I used to do and you could never tell the difference. My Dad says I got better looking too!

I was wearing an Icon Domain 2 Rubatone when I went down. I still have it fully intact, but my Strong Arm jacket they cut off me like a cross. So I wanna say thanks for saving me! If I didn’t have that stuff on I'd be in a box.

Worlds Quickest Harley

Joey Sternotti mid launch on the 1000HP Ray Price Funnybike - the picture doesn't begin to do it justice - insane

Rocking a custom Automag suit and the 'Thirteen' Domain 2 helmet, driver Joey Sternotti and the Ray Price team layed down another seriously insane season. Check out the full write up on Joey's record breaking pass of 6.144 ET at a incredible 234.37 MPH on the Ray Price website.

Wanna see more? Check out the 900HP movie we put out a couple of years ago - that was 100hp less than he's currently running. Like we said - insane.

The Icon Sporty Update

Someone once said "Cool is a journey - not a destination". And by someone we mean Icon.  So we continue on our journey - propelled ever onward by the rapidly growing fleet of Slabtown Sportsters.

From apes to flattracks to clipons the Ironhead formerly known as 'Cold Dead Fingers' continues to evolve. She has given up her dirt track aspirations in lieu of ruling the high banked ovals of the greater tri-state area. Therefore we will now refer to her only as the 'Iron Lung'. Is she fast? Son, you better ask somebody...

You may not recognize this beauty after her much needed face lift. Yes, this is the previously documented Shitester. Eight hundred and eighty three cubic inches of fury. She is what is commonly referred to as a mechanics special or in old english a 'Shitebox'. But not to worry - big changes are headed her way. Things are gonna change for her, I can feel it.

And making her grand debut is the 'Cast Iron Bitch'. Years in the thinking, weeks in the making - she's a '80/'83/'85 Ironhead powered oxymoron. Don't blame Hodaka for this creation - they had nothing to do with it. No, this fine bit of engineering is all Slabtown. Nothing says Anemic like the word Anemic written in tire pen on your frame. She's a fine steed no doubt and would make any Vans wearing, ollie popping, glittery helmed biker proud. Currently we are debating if we can add another bend to the jockey shift lever to increase her legitimacy. What's that you say? Hardtail drop seats are so fat tire. Dammit - that is time critical information - we need to get on a better tweet feed!

Haven't got your fill of the most noble of Harley's yet? Head on over to Quad Cam Bastards for a complete overload of Sportster love.

Field Armor MilSpec Vest

The Field Armor vest rewrote the definition of street protection. A truly innovative product that rightfully dominates the competition. Combining this product with our industry leading Mil Spec vest was an easy decision. All the low-profile protection afforded by the FA vest combined with the daytime and nighttime high conspicuousness of the Mil Spec vest. Truly a win-win situation.

We found this gem during our daily scans of the YouTube time vacuum. So why are we posting it? Choose one of the following:

a. The lead actor is rocking an Alliance SSR Headtrip helmet - much love
b. Icon loves CBR's equipped with unguided rocket pods
c. It is incredibly irresponsible, dangerous, and juvenile
d. All of the above
