Welcome to Friday Fudge. If it’s weird, funny, or strange motorcycle news, or it just plain won’t fit anywhere else on the site – you’ll find it here.
Ram vs motorcycle, part 3
Over the last few weeks, we’ve shown you a couple videos displaying the woes of a motorcyclist who’s been battling a ram during his dirt bike adventures. That’s right, the ram has been ramming him off his cycle.
These videos are getting so popular that a few folks started asking him if he could catch the action from the ram’s perspective. So, the intrepid biker actually caught the beast and mounted a GoPro to the animal, to get a different view of the action. Much hilarity ensues, although we’re starting to wonder about these clips … if they’re for real, this guy is the most long-suffering rider we know of.
Nuns and bikers
So, where does a biker turn to, if he needs a place to stay for Harley-Davidson’s 110th anniversary party in Milwaukee and there’s no room in the inn, so to speak?
For some, there’s an unlikely option. A group of nuns in the area are hosting bikers in need of a place to stay, and have reportedly been doing so for years. Sounds a bit like a set-up for a gory exploitation film from the ’70s, doncha think? We can see the title now, something like “Nuns on Wheels: A convent raided by bikers takes their bloody revenge.” Peter Fonda would play the lead, as a misunderstood loner who just wants to ride his bike, without being hassled by the man. Jack Nicholson would probably make an appearance too.
Except in real life, it turns out these motorcyclists are the Muskegon Motorcycle Gang,a bunch of decent folk more concerned with fundraising for charity, than running guns and other illicit stuff. In fact, if this was a real exploitation film, these bikers would actually likely be the victimized townfolk … there’s got to be a plot in there somewhere.
The Sons get inked
Speaking of bike clubs, Sons of Anarchy is back on TV for its sixth season, but they’ve got other news on the go as well: They’re making an appearance in the funny pages. Well not exactly. TV’s most famous outlaw biker club is going to star in a six-book comic book series.
The series follows the mis-adventures of club member Tig Trager (played by Canadian Kim Coates – read our interview with him here), as well as people in the club’s periphery.
Our hope? We think it would be awesome if one of the characters was bitten by a radioactive deer, thereby gaining the proportional speed and strength of a deer (something like Spider-Man, with hoofs), and spent their time darting in front of the bikes of opposing outlaw clubs … And if you think that sounds ridiculous, consider the comic book industry has already come up with Squirrel Girl.

Don’t have a cow
You’ve got to be careful when parking your motorcycle around amorous animals. We can’t emphasize this point enough.
