Know what? I’m thinking of moving out of the house I’m renting and would love to move out of Ohio. Cleveland is just too much. How soon do you think we’ll have some biker housing?

By Bum Mon Jan 25th 2016 at 12:18 am  

Mick, I’m working on it. Working on a floor plan. The living space will be 15×30 plus a bathroom. There will be a 15×30 attached garage less the bathroom area. Planning sky lights to keep lighting costs down. Once that’s done I’ll estimate the cost. Loners (real bikers) need a place to stay and enough garage for the bike.

I’ll send out an email with what I come up with. All input is helpful. Have land to trade for a lifetime of free rent? Let me know.

As soon as you guys give me a max you can afford a month I will be able to determine what can actually be done. Figure 10% of your income if you earn $1000 a month, 15% over 1K and not more than $1500 a month, 20% over $1500 but not over$2000 and 1/3 with over $2K.

Bum! I’m sending you an email. Have an idea about how to build that biker housing thing.

By Bum Mon Jan 18th 2016 at 8:51 pm  

Okay, will get with it. Sending one out at 6:00pm today and will address it in the next one.

I’m cured of Harleyitis. Some of those European bikes are awesome. Just might build me a Jap four or a Triumph.

By Mick Sat Jan 16th 2016 at 6:16 pm  

You’re not the only one.

By Bill Thu Dec 31st 2015 at 1:04 am  

Sure did get things understood. I guess this is the only site without the women always in your face. So when you going to have listings of places to go?

By Bum Thu Dec 31st 2015 at 1:10 am  

I’m looking for sure it’s just that it’s hard to find places that are truly us. Hey, if you want to help us out on that you’ll be welcome and you’ll make a few bucks doing that.

Remember, the Shanty isn’t a big corporation, it’s our site and what WE make it is what it is.

By Deak Sat Dec 26th 2015 at 9:53 pm  

Anyone get a new bike for a gift?

By Bum Sat Dec 26th 2015 at 9:55 pm  

I wish.

By Jerry Sun Dec 27th 2015 at 3:53 pm  

I got a new seat!!! A king and queen. Just bought and received my rigid and was saving for the seat and this ho who wants to hook up with me gave me the seat. As long as she can bring in enough $$$ I might keep her.

Bum, I am serious, do something about income and housing.

By Bum Tue Dec 22nd 2015 at 4:53 pm  

I am glad you’re ready to move on it. I’m just starting to offer people an income opportunity via the Shanty. It’s good for those of us that live on our bikes (Loners), Biker Babes and retirees (62+), actually it’s good for anyone serious about bikes. Unfortunately, locating them is difficult.

As I’ve always said, the Shanty is our site and the more active we are the more success we have. This is why we support the biker social media. Most of the people on social media aren’t bikers. Too many are just living a fantasy lifestyle or looking for a place to act out. Indeed, we all use social media for entertainment, etc, and more and more serious bikers are coming our way. We enhance the quality of their sites and give people a serious resource for information. Only those logged into the Shanty receive the email updates, etc. The others who visit the site only see the basics. Watch your email.

By Bum Thu Dec 24th 2015 at 4:10 pm  

I sent out an email. Now let’s see how much feedback we get.

By George Mon Dec 21st 2015 at 10:25 pm  

Why is it real bikers have so much trouble? Constantly lookin for a place to live and work instead of just riding and working on our bikes.

By Switchblade Mon Dec 21st 2015 at 10:26 pm  

I know, happens to me a whole lot.

By shanty Mon Dec 21st 2015 at 10:28 pm  

We’re working on that issue. It’s just that we’re a minority of people who ride motorcycles and RUBS are hypocritical as are the recreational riders. If you’re a real biker then get witht he Shanty and we’ll see about your income.

By Bum Thu Dec 24th 2015 at 4:11 pm  

Just sent out an email addressing the suggestions made. Let’s see what feedback we get.

By From the Shanty Sun Dec 20th 2015 at 12:26 am  

Since we have so many people in so many different countries with so many different cultures and spiritual beliefs it would be offensive and insulting if the Shanty did not respect those differences. Therefore, so no bias is shown towards anyone we wish you a great holiday season and a very happy and good New Year.

Went to a rally only to find out it was nothing more than a cross between a block party, a downtown saloon an a flea market. Thought it would be bikers talking about bikes drinking a few beers, talking rides we made and having a few laughs. Not sure I’ll do another one.

By Jerry Fri Dec 18th 2015 at 9:48 pm  

Happened to me too.

By Mick Fri Dec 18th 2015 at 9:50 pm  

Me three.

By Bum Fri Dec 18th 2015 at 9:51 pm  

That’s because you went to a rally posted on social media. I’ll send an info mail out to all of you on the subject.

By George Mon Dec 21st 2015 at 10:20 pm  

Got the email, I understand, you’re right.

By Jerry Fri Dec 18th 2015 at 12:39 am  

How do you show a bike for sale?

By shanty Fri Dec 18th 2015 at 12:47 am  

You need to be logged into the Shanty via sending a photo of your bike or a girl or by adding a comment to the pages. I moved you over to this page from the contact form since it answers a lot of people’s questions. You cannot be a dealer it must be your own machine and we must be able to verify that you are an individual biker. If you are a dealer we can post you on The Shanty Wall – Places and Things page an give you a link to your website. Hope this helps.

By George Thu Dec 17th 2015 at 8:34 pm  

Awesome, site. Awesome comment system. Awesome people.

By shanty Thu Dec 17th 2015 at 8:35 pm  

We try, George, we try.

By Dog Wed Dec 16th 2015 at 3:24 am  

Hey, this page has some potential and so do the others since you updated the comments format. Good going.

By Bum Wed Dec 16th 2015 at 3:31 am  

You guys asked for it and you now have it.

By Jack Tue Dec 15th 2015 at 11:15 pm  

This page is sweet. Anyone planning an X-mas day thing?

By Bum Tue Dec 15th 2015 at 11:52 pm  

Yeah, who is?

By Dog Sun Dec 20th 2015 at 12:18 am  

Depends on where you live. Most people are sleeping off Xmas eve and happy with a ham sandwich.

By Bad Bev Tue Dec 15th 2015 at 11:11 pm  

What we need here are chat lines.

By Bum Tue Dec 15th 2015 at 11:12 pm  

I’d love to, however, the cost is a little high at this time. I’m working on something that may make chat lines happen though. Update: Sorry folks, no chat lines. We don’t compete with anyone and we are not an online social club.

By Bum Mon Dec 14th 2015 at 4:24 pm  

I’m sure you’ve heard it before. A guy is riding along with friends, his engine blows, his pseudo friends leave him high and dry. Now you know what rubs are.

By Bum Sat Jan 2nd 2016 at 3:17 pm  

Just for the record, RUB means Rich Urban Biker and rub means someone who comes to the party and irritates everyone.

By Carl Mon Dec 14th 2015 at 4:20 pm  

Hey, Bum, I’ve some real good pics of my former wife and I’d like to send them to you. Problem is they show it all and you don’t put those kind on the site. Why not?

By Bum Mon Dec 14th 2015 at 10:50 pm  

This site is public and needs to be informative, resourceful and lifestyle oriented. While other countries are not as conservative as North Texas I still try to appeal to over 100 different cultures in 100 different countries. Most countries aren’t as sensitive to children seeing nudity, although, some are, and therefore, I must have things covered up and I might add, so is Playboy Magazine. I truly want this to be a motorcycle site.

By Switchblade Mon Dec 14th 2015 at 4:18 pm  

I already supported Weed Now and no I’m supporting a few other things, ISIS must go.

By Bum Mon Dec 14th 2015 at 10:59 pm  

Thanx for your support.

By Annie Mon Dec 14th 2015 at 4:10 pm  

At first I thought your site sucked and now I’m getting to understand it and what my place is. I like it. You guys are male chauvinist pigs its just that your guys like women. Am I welcome?

By Bum Mon Dec 14th 2015 at 10:51 pm  

You’re welcome, Babes, send your pics.
