Here’s a happy news tidbit.
For those of you who have been living under a rock or just started motorcycling within the last year, BHBV is a website run by people who search for the dregs of moto cinema. The site has been dormant for about the past year, but posts have inexplicably begun flowing again. With the decline of bobchobblertrackers finally gaining speed, it would have stood to reason that the website mocking them would also be on permanent hiatus. However, apparently new fodder ripe for derision is on the horizon.
The site was begun in 2013, and really began achieving notoriety the following year. “Harvard J Nasty, Esq.”, one of the site’s writers, must sit around watching every damned motorcycle video on YouTube. (Watching them sounds way easier than actually making them.) Loving coffee, mustaches, “artisan” anything, and shitty electrical-taped headlights puts an individual in BHBV's crosshairs. Making a video about it seals the deal. Watching the videos usually caused me to shake my head and mutter, but the highlights for me were always the associated commentary.
When they stopped posting, I began checking the site less and less frequently, perhaps digging up an old post or two, until eventually I stopped coming by. But I was tipped off they were once again active, and wandered back. I've once again gotten my fix.
Here’s the most recent video they found, posted, and ridiculed.
And of course, the pithy commentary I take such delight in. (We left this uncut and unedited, much to Fearless Editor Lance's chagrin, who wanted to insert "[sic]" about a dozen times.)
"It this real? This video almost seems too good to be true, it this some sort of hipster honeypot? Captain Gardening Gloves here seems to think that we’ve been lied to “we’ve been misled to believe that newer is always better”. This philosophy of new not being better led them to cast off the oppressive yoke of web site hosting renewal because their site is no longer functional, however their instagram is still up and worth a look for some good chuckles.
They’re from Colorado, so I guess they must be 2nd tier hipsters and behind the curve. Don’t they know this is all over and done with? This is an amateur at best, he’s missing so many key ingredients. Where is the story from his childhood, a fanciful tale of seeing a motorcycle that sparked a love deep within his soul. No concocted soliloquy about the meaning of manual labor and the creative process. He doesn’t even have a stable of shit box UJMs in his garage, a garage that’s lit like a bar in a french new wave movie, lit like a sex dungeon for the obese, lit like a geriatric brothel.
Anyway we haven’t posted in a while so it’s probably for the best that we return with a soft target for our dumb jokes."
If you haven't done so, go waste an hour of your employer's time and visit the site. These guys are hilarious. And don’t be sensitive. If you can’t laugh at yourself and at other people, you’re gonna hate it over there.
