Play With It

Got some photos out of the void today. Check out the current loads if you like on my Flickr BACK TO THE BEACH. As I can, I'll keep posting more. Read the story below now that I'm a member of the "Lost Taillight Club."

Files Corrupted

It started out a nice enough day. Slightly misting. I was supposed to meet Matt Dice and the rest to ride up to the Back To The Beach car and motorcycle show at the Ventura Fairgrounds. I loaded my jacket full of some basic tools in case something came loose along the way. I was running late and trying to keep the 50 limit on PCH somewhere near reasonable in case a CHP drove by. I missed the group at the meeting place. I pushed on knowing I was to hit two shows today, one north in Ventura and the second the 40th Anniversary Party for Street Chopper Magazine in Garden Grove, CA. (some 100 odd miles south from Ventura).
To make a long story short; 5 miles from Ventura I felt a rattle and turned to look back just in time to see my license plate and tail light sailing upwards toward the heaven's and crashing into the bush's on the side of the freeway. It took a while to walk back and find the now buried-in-iceplant taillight plate combo. A passerby in a cage stopped to offer condolences. I recovered the downed equipment and hurried it to a Walmart off Rose. A nice smoking native american indian stood by her car and watched as I pulled up holding my junk. "Parts fall off." I said. "Yep." she said as she took a drag. Upon closer look I had lost my top motor mount nut and I was seconds away from a tank fiasco too! Two chinese $1.49 vicegrips and a couple bolts and wire connectors, throw in a new bulb and badda bing. I made it to the show(s). I'll be posting some pics from both shows here and on my Flickr as soon as I uncorrupt my iPhoto. So maybe by tomorrow...

Smoke Out 10 Sportys

Some Sportsters from the SmokeOut10. See the entire VTwinBiker set here.

Can I get a little salt on my Margarita?

Focus on what Matters


I am so confused

If you have a bumper sticker that reads "Kill Your Television" you better take it off because this guy is on it everyday. Talk talk talk talk talk talk talk... talk. The First Amputee President (All Mouth, No Action). And go figure, he's does NOT own a Sportster.

Shot Anyone?

Took the time to shoot all my old shots. These had to come from the 50's-60's after my Grandfather came home from WWII.

I used to have a Stretch Armstrong and I'd pull his arms and legs until they would drip syrup, but nothing is as cool as a Sportster done up right my brothers.

Going to bed dreaming of Camping Rides

Von Humper

Still trying different seat combos, this set up ran under $32., including an $8. Flyrite seat mount beat flat to fit the stock frame seat mount. Waiting for one thing, the Biltwell Sporty seat. 2010 is right around the corner aye!

Center photo reminds me of Mork's Mrs. Doubtfire movie for some reason?

Bars On My Mind

Just A Swallow

Fuse Box class 101. When attempting to install brake light, one might per chance blow out his/her fuses. You will need to check them visually and replace if blown. Here's a picture of what you should find, including fuse puller (as seen on new seat).

Found old shot glass circa WWII in garage. Can't believe how cool my Grandfather was before cool was store bought.
