…The Confederate Fighter is an amazing bike?

Confederate Motorcycles Fighter

Confederate Motorcycles have always been a cut above.

After nearly being wiped out by Katrina, Confederate is back and better than ever with the release of their new Fighter bike.

Featuring tons of carbon fiber and titanium, including the front “blade” style suspension, aggressive lines and enough speed to scare just about anyone (top speed is north of 190 mph), the Fighter is just plain sexy.

Confederate bikes have always been known for their fusing of raw power and crisp simplicity, and in words straight from the company’s mouth,

    It’s an evolution of the machine, at once taken back down to its core elements while being reinvented and re-engineered for optimal performance. It’s our street-legal sci-fi dream come to life, in the form of the limited-edition Fighter Motorcycle.

If you’re looking to score one of the 45 being made, then you better have your checkbook ready, because the first one off the lot carries a price tag of $110,000, along with special Neiman Marcus edition features, and is sure to go quick. (In more ways than one!)

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Nelson Racing F-Bomb?

Nelson Racing F-Bomb

When you’re the Chief Editor of Hotrod Magazine, it’s not like you can just drive around in a Dodge Stratus.

However, the Nelson Racing “F-Bomb” 1973 Chevy Camaro that David Freiburger drives around might just take the opposite to the extreme.

Featuring a twin turbo, 406 cubic inch V8, it’s got 1540 HP and 1527 lb.ft. of torque on tap so that any time speed is an option, the go pedal is sure to provide plenty of it.

Besides the monster engine though, the car has also been caged and minitubbed for safety, and was stripped down to the bare metal before being powder coated with a fighter plane motif that I can’t get enough of.

F-Bomb indeed.

…Andrew Olmsted will be missed?

Andrew Olmsted

Major Andrew Olmsted was a blogger and a fighter.

Unfortunately, being a fighter meant that Andrew spent time in some very dangerous places, and he was killed last Thursday while serving his country in Iraq.

Before he left, however, he penned a final post that he had asked his friend hilzoy to publish in the event that anything happened to him. The result is a touching and heartfelt look into the life of a soldier, including the quotes that he lived by, and the ideas that he died by.

It’s always good to remind yourself every once in a while of just how precious life is, so open your heart and give Andrew’s Final Post a read; because a final goodbye is as honest as anyone is ever going to be.
