If you're into whisk(e)y themed bikes, Ardbeg had a couple of bikes made by Orange County Choppers.

They're on tour right now so if you're into bikes, I'll be updating the tour dates as I get them.

Cheers!

Does the exhaust smell like smoky dirt and iodine?

NICE! One of those would go good with my bottle of Ardbeg.

That would be pretty wild if it did. Good one!

As much as I love Scotch... Ardbeg is a hard one for me to enjoy. I love the Islay whiskies, but Ardbeg puts a whole 'nother spin on smoke. Like every other whisk(e)y... there are times when it really hits the spot, and times when I can't figure out why I ever liked it. :lol:

That's probably why I only have one bottle :grin:

If I get an urge to go camping I can take a shot of Ardbeg and go sit back down. I get the campfire and burnt marshmallow without ever leaving the man-chair.:crazy:

With the rake and extension on those front ends, there isn't a road in Scotland wide enough to make a U-turn. No wonder they're touring stateside.

I hope they never make a trike or my wife will have to have one.

Hate to tell you this Stu, OCC has made trikes before so all you would need to do is have Ardbeg give the OK (for trademark purposes) and I'm sure Paul Sr. and crew would create the perfect birthday/anniversary present for Bernadette.

PS....Just bring lots of money

Her Goldwing trike cost enough! Actually I got a better deal on hers than on mine. The sad part is hers is nicer!

Here's a picture of a trike OCC made, and it is on their custom bikes page.

I don't work for either of these companies. I'm just a computer nerd in a whisky enthusiasts body. Or vice versa.

I'll repost this since it was lost in the crash.

The Beist chopper will be at Vine and Table in Carmel, IN (northern suburb of Indianapolis) on April 15 at 5-7PM. Ardbeg and Glenmorangie will be available for tasting

Thanks Tom!

The bikes left Houston a little earlier then I estimated. I'm guessing they might head Northeast just in time for a little ride amongst the crowds.

I happened to see the Ardbeg motorcycle at the Spec's Smith Street store in Houston a few weeks back. It was located near the entrance. Very nice!! Unfortunately, no tastings going on at the time.

There here at our store, and I gotta say, they are incredible.
