2017 Harley Davidson Breakout

by Editor on 11/14/17

The TDMC Customs team at Trev Deeley Motorcycles is at it again creating motorcycle magic with their latest custom build, a 2017 Harley-Davidson FXSB Breakout with Big wheels, big paint and classic drag-bike attitude meet modern refinement. Then we stuff it brimful with raw power.
There's nothing like a fistful of American street muscle.
Feast your eyes on the Breakout. Its profile is low, stretched out and undeniably aggressive. We top it with drag bars and enhance its custom look with 21-spoke Turbine wheels. The High Output Twin Cam 103B engine delivers loads of torque to a wide 240mm rear tire. ABS comes standard. Go out and put a hard pounding on the pavement. It doesn't get any better.

Five different camera angle shooting the Rockies

by Editor on 11/12/17

All of the video footage has been transferred over to hard drives from our ride to the Canadian Rocky mountains. We used five different video camera angles to capture as much as we could of this truly incredible area! While going through the footage I decided to pull a still image from each different camera angles to give our viewers a sneak peak of what's to come.

Snow fall in Vancouver, Surrey, Langley, Aldergrove and the rest of the lower mainland

by Editor on 11/03/17

It hasn't snowed this early since 1997 according to the news... Yesterday we got a couple of inches of the white stuff and today it's trying to melt but the temperature has climbed enough to get rid of it all...

We were all set to to go back out riding to capture more of the Fall colours but will wait till it warms up a bit, safety first.

by Editor on 10/28/17

Fall is an amazing time of the year for motorcycle riding in British Columbia Canada, this year has been no exception. The colours of the leaves this season have been more vivd than the past few years due to the unseasonably dry summer and now the clear cool nights.

The SuckerPunch 2 into 1 Exhaust system from Fitzgerald Motorsports and VRFID Gen 4 EFI System by Daytona Twin Tec makes a killer combination on our 2003 Harley Davidson VRCSA VROD.

Rukka Motorsport gear in the Canadian Rockies

We've posted 40 more pictures of our Rukka gear from our ride to the Rockies here:

We put our Rukka motorcycle riding gear to the test in the Canadian Rocky Mountains and it passed with flying colours!!!!! We threw every thing at it from hot temps to sub zero temps, and then a ridicules amount of rain on the way home.

The TDMC Customs team at Trev Deeley Motorcycles is at it again creating motorcycle magic with their latest custom build.

With this timeless combination of style and touring function you don't just ride through the landscape, you're the most majestic part of the scenery.
Even your eyes can't stop wandering on this machine.

The Road King is where stripped down, nostalgic style meets the performance and versatility of a modern Harley-Davidson touring machine. The Hiawatha headlamp and nacelle were born in the 1960’s, when chrome ruled the streets. But the power of the all-new Milwaukee-Eight 107 engine brings it all into the here and now in a hurry. The all-new double bending valve front suspension and rear emulsion shocks put you in control for a plush ride. With cast aluminum Impeller wheels and one-touch opening saddlebags, this is the timeless classic built for today.

More images, specs and all other info for this bike is on TDMC Customs website:

5.3 gallon conversion kit for 02-06 Vrods

by Editor on 10/21/17

If you have a 2002-2006 Harley-Davidson Vrod this is your last chance to get your hands on a 5.3 gallon kit for your bike. Unlimited Engineering has made one last batch of these tanks and once they're gone, that's it because they will be discontinued!!!!

I got mine, so get yours while you still can!

here's the direct link:

In my opinion this is one of the very best upgrades to do for the 02-06 Vrods and there is nothing better than riding past gas stations that I used to have to stop at... beep beep : )

Motorcycle ride in the Canadian Rockies

by Editor on 10/03/17

Diane and I are back safe and sound from our eight day ride to the Rockies, we are back a little early due to Mother Nature flexing her muscles... Motorcycles and snow don't mix well.. At least not for me : ) The little bit shown in this picture didn't concern us, it was the forecast predicted by the Weather Network that had us concerned, I'm sure if you watch the news you would agree it was the right choice.

Rocky Mountain motorcycle ride map

We had an incredible trip, we would like to thank everyone for all the well wishes and for following our posts in social media. We rode 2, 204 kilometres, took 4,416 pictures and shot over 32 hours of footage using 4 different camera angles. Now that i'm back in the office I'll start transferring all the video footage from our cameras into Final Cut Pro and fill up some hard drives.

We are looking forward to sharing our images and videos with our viewers!

Rocky Mountain Motorcycle Ride

by Editor on 09/22/17

As many of you know, we have been planing our return to the Canadian Rockies for sometime now... Due to British Columbia's wildfires / smoke and the Provincial Government declaring a State of an Emergency for an unprecedented 8 weeks we had to change our departure dates twice, and most recently it was snowing in Jasper and Lake Louise.

A window of opportunity has opened up and the dates are set for Sept 23 - Oct 5 2017. We will be posting images and videos from Jasper / Lake Louise and the surrounding areas and of course the legendary Icefields Parkway!

We invite you to follow our journey to this world renowned travel destination in social media.

We will have our inReach Explorer with us and be dropping pin points every 30 seconds on this map

There are also videos from a previous trip posted on that page too.
