Everybody goes

And no...I'm not really sure why I didn't post any Dale Hawkins, a true favorite.

Cafe Racer?

That can't be right.

Of course I hear from the group of meat heads behind me, "Dude, I need to get one for my Road King!"

Sure, it would be nice to have one of each...

I just don't think I'd use them all at once.

You know, even if they were all the same I don't think I'd want more than 2 at a time.

Honestly, I was so lost in a thought about stacks of supermarket shopping carriages, I never even looked at the left side of these things.

I wouldn't call it "Trespassing "

So much as just, "Knowing where to go."
There was an indoor motorcycle/fashion show/sausage fest this past weekend at a local "Exposition Center" & I've always found, if you look like you are suppose to be there, it's never a problem to just kind of slide in on "Set up" night.
Having done this year, after year, after year, at both this and the big car show that goes on, I've been able to avoid a ton of the un pleasantries you're apt to find at this sort of affair.
I don't have to look on in horror as some dumb ass parent lets his kid stand on someone's hood to get a better look at a local sports person.
I won't bristle when I hear some steak head tell his friend how much better his bike is gonna be once all the bad-assery he ordered shows up in the mail.
I certainly don't run the risk of being shoved from behind by some doughy under-sexed buffoon, rushing to be first in line for his Polaroid with some plastic-injected swimsuit model and I definitely won't be impeded by the ridiculous lines to buy the autograph of some C-list celebrity.
Nope, set up night is beautiful.
Perhaps my favorite thing to do in the winter.
I can walk around in my own little world and be horrified in the privacy of my head as I try to take in the bullshit people pass off as "Custom", or whatever the label of the month happens to be.
Wel...having said that, I will say this:
I was a bit surprised to find a some cool stuff mixed in with all the plastic do-dads, "Psycho, Old SKool, Retro, Thing-a-ma bobbers,"racks of clothes, stick on tattoo booths, professional rhinestone installers (artists?) and two-wheeled couches.
Here's a few, keeping in mind I've never been a ble to take a decdent picture in that place....or anywhere for that matter.

Should I warn you now (or keep to myself) the rest of the pictures from this are pretty much two-wheeled weirdness?

Buy my bike!!

Impress the girls!

Let this be a lesson to you!

Thanks Mike!

Well that's weird

This is a first.
I've never stumbled across my post on someone's blog until now.
Should I care?
I kinda don't.
I don't really do things for recognition, which I suppose is why, I'm the world's worst self promoter.

Back on nowhere.

Apparently I've started giving monthly updates on what amounts to nothing more than playing with toys.
Well, as it turns out, mixing toys and power tools was not exactly the best way to cut a tunnel in to a tiny little gas tank but, as you all know, I'm a "Live on the edge" sort of a guy.

So, for my second attempt (Yes, I have quite a stash of model motorcycle parts, quit laughing) I figured I'd use the right tool for the job,

and seemed to meet with moderate success:

Who knew?!?!?!?

So, after countless bunch of time (I'm trying to maintain at least a shred of dignity here, you don't really wanna know how much time I spent with crap like you?)I wound up with something a little less alien looking than the last time.

There's still more puttying, sanding and priming to do, but I gotta put it down for a bit.

This is where "The Little Shovel" (I hate it when people name vehicles) sits at the moment:

Next is the seat, which I think I have a handle on already & I wish I could find the bars I had set aside....I've got the weirdest set of problems.

Christ, I gotta figure out a better way to squander my time.
A job perhaps......

My father.
20 years old.
Nice parking job.

One quick question.

Something has been bugging me for awhile & I am hoping someone can give me an answer.
Why is it, especially in the various internet forums, NO ONE seems to be able to type "E-Bay?"

I was gonna go on

about Sarah Palin being a complete fucking retard, but she seems to do a pretty good job of driving that point home all on her own.
Good girl.
Now please Sarah, sit down and shut up.
Here's some pictures from a few years ago.

I've said this before....

and I still have yet to be proven wrong.
I'm convinced the only way to be "Successful" is to develop some kind of dependency.
