I'm about half way done loading the Born Free 2 show pics I took. So far I'm at about 473 or an expected 800-900. That's a lot of pictures. That's a lot of bad assery bikes! Born Free 2 loaded up the block they closed and bikes spilled out onto surrounding streets. I had to take a walk about two blocks each way to snap some of these photos and (for me) it was worth it. Sportsters were everywhere I looked.
Here's two Sportsters from unknown(*) SQRINTS found under the google~dope. Check out his Smoke Out West 2010 photobucket spread. That shot above of the green Sportster is knock your socks off (even with the (apparently) harsh lighting, it's an awesome capture of a sweet chimp). Curved Pipes & Flat Pads! (* Stolen from)
Continuing to upload pictures from the Born Free 2 show in Signal Hill, Ca. June 12th 2010. On my flickr page there will eventually be about 800 shots from this show, it'll be another week or two. But, as this show brought out every bitchin' bike in the area, it too brought out the Sportsters that make this web site possible. I think the internest would crash without this baby bird named Lady Hump. Otherwise I'd just post hallucinogenic stories about imaginary people I never met, nor ever existed and post pictures like the post above this one....
What a way to make a coffin tank work on an old Ironhead. Simply can not be done with the same end result on a new 48. (As if.)
(Damn Chris must be paying me back for getting into all his shots last month. Here he is invading mine!)
Speaking of Lava Lamps, remember when you'd put on some Cure and maybe some Soft Cell in high school, that chick you dated had the short cut "Papa Don't Preach" bleached Madonna hair cut, and fire up the Lava Lamp for some heavy petting? Well, this bike was your Dad's and he was in the garage working on it while you shook your bed frame....
Today I slept and had a dream of being drugged on the operating room table. I was given something to relax me and drifted into La La land where I was at peace with my surroundings and situations. I slept for maybe two hours, but in that small amount of time I dreamt my way through an operation and completely enjoyed the experience. What does this say about me? Thanks for the pic Bill's back seat Chicago rider.
Another batch is on the way. Inverted from the image above.
Some thoughts on recent occurrences;
1.) There's a bridge under water, so it cant be burned.
2.) There's no difference between "Fuck The World" and the Christian slogan "Not Of This World" when you consider Obi Wan Kenobi's matter of perspective argument for telling Luke that his father was killed by Darth Vader in Episode 4.
3.) Grades of Shay sounds much better than Shades of Gray. It flows off the tongue with ease.
4.) Real, yes Real, Unicorns are almost never white. It's a matter of factual disbelief, when people dismiss Unicorn sightings as improbable because the Unicorn they've seen, does not match the a-typical movie image Unicorn they have been exposed to.
If you are interested in a tee shirt of Unicorn memorabilia, please email me via "allen" on chop cult.
Just some art stuff, not worthy of the "art threads" but in here, even David Bowie sings classics. New t-shirt designs coming soon. Need some original lettering (even though the CC rip off works pretty sweet...)
6/20/2010 ~ Century Motorcycles annual Fathers Day BBQ. San Pedro's most famous motorcycle shop hosts every year. Since all of my bikes are currently on the rack or suffering from mysterioso diagnoso incognito, I took (who else?) my Dad! He used to be a bad ass and ride (yeah, right). No, he had a 1957 Triumph and the only trophy's he has from the "day" are some parking violations for speeding 50 mph on PCH back when he first tooled Redondo Beach into the bent over. Not even a single picture? I rib him about it constantly. Not a lot of Sportsters (other than Newbs and Peter Test Tubes) representing. Found this gem in the middle of a hundred Brit Sticks. Breathed a sigh of relief. I almost had to pull out the inhaler for lack of Sportyness.
Two flat tires earns you a tattoo. Thanks to Rob (Yee Haw Fucker!!!!!) for the gun and Eric for the application!
