The last time we checked in with the people at Federal Moto they were building a badass beach tracker based on a 1978 Yamaha SR500. Now they’ve partnered up with the one and only Royal Enfield to turn a 2014 Royal Enfield Continental GT—already a gorgeous cafe racer in its own right—into something familiar but altogether unique. In the matter of a month, the brothers at Federal Moto stripped down the Continental GT to a bare frame, fabricated pieces to connect a mono shock in the rear, fitted a new leather seat with embedded LEF taillight, swapped in a Honda CB360 fuel tank, refinished the engine, converted it to a performance carb system, murdered out the exhaust, and fiddled with the electrics and, well, just about everything else. Once they completed those six months of work in a fraction of the time, the motorcycle got a new paint scheme that’s a nod to one of India’s railway lines and the name of the bike—the Grand Trunk Express.

Ah, the waffle weave. Looks cool, feels great, reminds us of toasted Eggos. You’ve seen them before–probably in a fancy store or hotel–but Parachute’s brand new Waffle Towels are different. They’re spun using innovative Aerocotton Technology, which basically means they’ll be dry by the time your significant other finally gets out of the shower and realizes you stole their towel. Parachute’s Waffle Towels come in two sizes and two neutral colors. Plus, their 100% cotton construction means they start soft and only get softer with time. Even Kevin McCallister would approve.
