New nominee for the ugliest bike ever. White, chopped to bits, and oh dear god fugly.
I often point the moto-heads in my crowd to articles at Hell for Leather. Here BikeEXIF talks to one half of the Hell for Leather team. Wes Siler. (A little fluffy, but there you have it.)

Information in Words and Pictures
Visually presentation of simple facts. Africa is bigger than the United States, India, and China combined. Enough bigger to have room for France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Italy, and most of eastern Europe and still not full. I was surprised to find the Japan is nearly as big as Italy. I think of Japan as being very small and crowded.
I have, over the years, bought many of the printed bound collections of the Paris Review’s interviews with authors. Now you can read all of them. (from the 1950 on) Your favorite author is likely to be here somewhere and the chances of discovering an author you’d like to read more of is pretty danged high. (via lisa gold)
