Road and Track: A lithe BMW R80 restomod by 46Works

When Shiro Nakajima isn’t honing his considerable talents in his home workshop at the base of the Yatsugatake Mountains, you’ll find him racing at the Tsukuba Circuit, a few hours away. Those opposing environments are reflected in Nakajima-san’s custom bikes; tasteful restomods that are aesthetically restrained, but also built to be ridden hard.

The man known as 46Works also has an affinity for European motorcycles, carried over from his days as the founder of the powerhouse restomod workshop, Ritmo Sereno. This explains why his latest creation—a wonderfully prepped 1986 BMW R80 restomod—looks so damn good.

The bike was built as a collaboration between 46Works and the Japanese leather racing suit manufacturer Kushitani. Founded in the late 1940s in Hamamatsu, Kushitani has made leathers for Grand Prix racing greats like Randy Mamola, Wayne Gardner, Kevin Magee, and Kevin Schwantz. They’re also Shiro’s go-to race suit supplier, and they’ve collaborated on numerous 46Works apparel collections.

Shiro’s goal was to build a lithe machine that would be just as happy on the track as it would be on B-roads. His second priority was making sure that once the bike was parked, it would give its rider endless details to ogle.

A vintage metal box labeled

Nuobell Adjustable Dumbbells by SMRTFT. I tried out several sets of dumbbells last spring to find the one that worked best. Nuobell was the winner. One year later, they’re still my favorite dumbbells. The dumbbells are expensive, but they’re worth it for the convenience factor. To adjust the weight you simply twist the handle. Kate and I have used them several times a day and we’ve never had any problems with the quality. Buy a set and begin a full body workout at your home.

Northwoods Baseball Sleep Radio This is one of the most bizarre things I have seen online in a very long time. Northwoods Baseball Sleep Radio features radio broadcasts that are full-length of fake baseball matches. All the games that Wally McCarthy calls (look at his profile picture; he’s serious) are entirely made up. The episodes sound just like a baseball broadcast on AM/FM radio. The combination of Wally’s play-by-play comments and the low din created by the crowd, combined with slight radio static, can be a very relaxing experience.

The majority of people’s musical taste is fixed. Adam Singer highlights Spotify’s research that found our musical tastes tend to solidify between the age of 13 and 16 years old. We stop looking for new artists after that. Adam argues that getting stuck in your musical routine can lead to you missing out on some great artists. To find new artists, you need to be open-minded and have patience. Spotify’s algorithm is a good start, but only shows you music that’s similar to your favorites. You can ask your friends to recommend bands that you may not have heard of otherwise. Kate’s ability to find new music and have opinions on how to create the soundtrack to your life, even as we age, is something I admire.

The Transparency Society Byung-Hul C., a German-South Korean philosopher. He is a very interesting cat. He writes about life in our fast-paced, technologically-driven society. It’s hard to understand his prose at times, but I find it fascinating. He doesn’t give interviews and protects his privacy. The Transparency Society is a book I’ve thought a lot of. Chan criticizes the modern obsession and drive for transparency. We tend to think that more transparency can be good for reducing corruption and other issues. Transparency can also be used as a tool to control and monitor people. He also claims that transparency removes the need to trust in a relation since you can simply follow your child with an AirTag, and not have any faith that they will do and go where that they promised. Secrets have power.
