The Zimmerframe Manifesto

Welcome to Zimmerframe Racing. Brits'll get the joke. That up there? That's Max the Big Black Dog. Because every garage needs someone who will unconditionally tolerate your stupidity. See that smile? He knows you have no clue, but he's cool with it.

There is no Mission Statement here at Zimmerframe. It's just a li'l web site about motorcycles and tangentially related stuff that I find interesting and other people might, too. Rather than a Grand Vision, the site is guided by the following simple principles:

  • You're never too old to learn.

  • Anyone can learn if they're willing to screw up often enough.

  • You're never too old to screw up.

  • Except for cases of epic mechanical catastrophe, you're probably better off buying tools and shop manuals with the money you'd spend on labor.

  • There is both zen and art in the act of maintaining a motorcycle.

  • There is both zen and art in the act of riding a motorcycle.

  • Life is too short for crap beer.
