Motorcycle Cannonball roars into town

(Video) --- About 100 motorcyclists rumbled into Great Falls on Wednesday afternoon all on antique motorcycles for the 2018 Motorcycle Cannonball.

The coast-to-coast run began in Portland, Maine on September 8 and plans to finish in Portland, Oregon on September 23. The group arrived in Great Falls around 3 p.m. at Big Sky Harley Davidson where the public was allowed to view the bikes and visit with participants about the journey.

Owner and promoter Jason Sims said the run is a challenge of man versus machine.

“The real objective is to get from point A to point B,” he said.

The Motorcycle Cannonball calls itself the most difficult antique endurance run in the world. The riders are expected to reach a destination within a set time limit and face penalties for missed miles or late arrivals.

Member shirt led to man charged in Scorpions Motorcycle Club break-in on night of fire

It was a Scorpions Motorcycle Club shirt — a garment available only to members — that led to a suspect being identified in the break-in at the club's building in Lyon Township.

The break-in happened Sept. 22, 2017, the same time a fire heavily damaged the Scorpions clubhouse on Milford Road, just north of 10 Mile. Kinley Rae-John Kelm, 39, is charged with multiple felonies over the break-in and thefts from the clubhouse and a camper on the property.

During a preliminary examination in 52-1 District Court, Scorpions member Jacob David testified that about a week after the fire and break-in, he was attending an event in South Lyon when he saw a man in a Scorpions shirt across the street.

The daughter of a London homicide victim lashed out at her father's killer Monday after a judge rejected the Crown's request to sentence the teenager as an adult.

The daughter of a London homicide victim lashed out at her father’s killer Monday after a judge rejected the Crown’s request to sentence the teenager as an adult.

The 18-year-old, who can’t be identified because he was 15 when he gunned down Steve Sinclair, was sentenced to seven years – four in custody, three under community supervision — for second-degree murder.

The sentence sparked outrage from Sinclair’s daughter Sienna, who threw a ball of paper at the teen and swore at him inside the ninth-floor courtroom.

“I never get to see dad again. He gets seven years,” she sobbed as relatives restrained her.

Century-old motorcycles start grueling cross-country run in Portland

(video) --- PORTLAND, Maine — On Saturday, a pack of motorcyclists is going for a ride. They’ll all be astride antique machines manufactured before the Great Depression got started.

They don’t plan on stopping until they get to the West Coast.

For some, it’s a chance to test their mechanical skills, keeping century-old bikes alive over all those miles. Others relish the spiritual opportunity to time-travel in the vintage gasoline fumes of history.

The bikers will all be riding in the Motorcycle Cannonball, a biennial, 3,600-mile endurance run designed to test both humans and their old-timey, two-wheeled contraptions. Past runs have gone from New York to San Francisco and from Florida to Washington. This year, the bikes will rumble from Portland, Maine, to Portland, Oregon.

Vodka-powered motorcycle sets speed record

A spirit maker has successfully run a motorbike at 113 mph at the Bonneville Salt Flats, having fuelled it with his vodka waste products.

Ryan Montgomery completed a speed trial at the famous land-speed record site, and even temporarily held the fastest-ever time in class.

Nicknamed Sudden Wisdom, ironically after the distiller's rye whiskey brand, the bike was built up from a non-running 1980 Yamaha XS650 that was first found abandoned in a field.

As for the fuel, distilling vodka creates a 'head' that is too impure to drink and so is separated and discarded.
