"I'm gonna be iron...like a Lion...in Zion"

Another month of Hot Bike(US) has hit the news stands, and another familiar bike has a feature. Our close friend Andy Carter, of PangeaSpeed.com, has his Zion Express featured. The ZE might not be everyone's cup of tea, but upon closer inspection, anyone with a sense of what it takes to fabricate can appreciate all of the subtle nuances that Andy poured sweat and tears over. I was not a huge fan of this bike aesthetically when I first saw it, but over time it has won me over and I am now an advocate of the Zion. The fact that I get to witness the biggest fucking smile on Andy's face whenever I see him riding it helped push me to the other side. Hats off to you Mr. Carter, it takes some balls to not only cut the tranny off and ironhead but to push the limits of how a motorcycle can look. Stone, great job on the photos. Brandon, amazing use of words. Brett, great job on giving Brandon a turtle tattoo.

Please note: I apologize for the shitty pictures. It was 6AM at the airport. Forgive me for using the day to it's fullest extent.
