February Month RECAP ~ The February Blogosphere Challenge ~ It's Over

The February Blogosphere Challenge has ended.
Thanks to all the Blogs that participated in providing a month of clean sheets. The lack of "dog eating it's own vomit" that usually posts itself in the blogoshpere has skipped a hearty meal thanks to all of you! So, Cheers!
You may decide to stick to original-only posting, or you may revert into the confomity of reposting big tits and dirty beard limericks? I don't know what's best for you, I only know, I enjoyed the month immensely.

Some highlights of the month from the (in the end) 11 Blogs that participated in the Challenge;

That guy's facial expression on the left checking out the Lady, on NOYFB

Masshole Moto captured a Indian Larry Trike in the back of a shipping truck when they were shipping out a bike of there own to Japan. They didn't exactly stay 100% original, but they sure got a hella' lotta work done during the month. A Hella' Lot. Good Job guys. And, I thought it was winter? Wasn't everyone supposed to just be sitting around and complaining? ... as if we'd use rubbers or leave any taco uneaten, have you seen my belly?

Iron Vaquero rode his bike all over Wyoming taking pictures. Even had the decency to post up a trapped Sportster idle in a dealership.
 Man, open that cage door! Fly away little bird, fly away...

JBMFT taught us the proper way to Glitter Paint a lid, which hot sauce to praise, and which necessities should be brought along on any long distance motorcycle ride. That, and he made and gave away a nifty little leather tooled flask holder along the way.


Motorcycle Tabernacle spent the whole month fighting electrical gremlins on his bikes and floodig his shower with raw ewage I guess, I'm not sure what was going on over there, but I understand his wife was pretty upset with him ... hope everything works out for you in the end. Have you ventured out of the Laundry Room yet?

JDBatman over at What I See ~ Livin' The Two Wheeled Life, posted a ton of show pics and welding pics all month long. Good to see that Flyrite Sporty making it's way back onto the asphault. 8" over tubes are you crazy! They do look awesome.

Drunken Old Fools tricked me with Beer and Pussy, but I should have known better to begin with ...
 Let me get this right? The legal drinking age is 18 and (AND) you can ride your bike into Pubs for a refreshing malt beverage? Whu ...

Oily Side Down taught us all the proper way to "store" a Panhead engine when not in service. Thank you.

And just to make sure I thank everyone who participated, thanks also to everyone else who gave it the one two punch!, Bike Life Images ~ My So Called Life, HPMB (looks like you guys know how to party), and lastly Other Kind who started with us, but somewhere got caught up and didn't make it to the finish line. Hope I didn't miss anybody, but if you know me, I probably did. I have a tendency to label Panheads as Knuckleheads and Bro's as Ho's (but come on who hasn't made that mistake prospect? ...  ha ha.)

So I said, I was going to pick a winner at the end of the month, and really, arn't we all winners? Ha ha, NO. We've only got one winner and that is,

Drumroll please ...

The Lady Hump February Blogosphere Challenge Award goes to none other than, 
Kustom Jeff over at JDBatman.blogspot.com who aside from having a wife named Alison (same here), took a shit load of pictures (as did so many others), participated in rides, lunches, parties, fabrication, modifications, and just overall entertained me for the entire month. Thanks Jeff. Thanks also to everyone else who did the same, only difference is, Jeff get's a care package from the Lady Hump House o' Swag!
There can only be one winner, this isn't a "no one left behind" contest...
The rest of you, get the GLORY!!! and that's not a concelation prize neither.


The One Moto Show, Portland OR. Feb 10th-11th 2012






Seamus made this report from The One Moto Show up in Portland; "This was my first time going to this show. There was a good mix of Jap, Brit and American bikes covering the spectrum from stockers to raked out girders but I stuck mostly with shooting the WUSS bikes (ed note: Sportsters). Yes i was digging the Ironhead thus the 6 or 7 shots of it. This was also my first time shooting a non digital camera in a long time and of course forgot to bring a wide angle lense so I had to get creative by taking multiple shots of one bike. $2 swill in a can and more beards, mine included, than you could shake a stick at... "

Super big thanks to Seamus from Seattle for taking the spin down and sharing some pics with the Lady Hump audience! I'll be posting the rest of his pics in the coming days. Glad to see there's some stuff going on in that corner of the country. and BTW, nice Ironhead.

DEUS ~ Grand Opening Party (the last of 10)

The night ended in another large blur of images and memories you kinda remember the next day. This was probably the only RSVP party I've ever been to of this kind...

Flat Tires, Tacos, and a night of Boutiqueing takes it's toll

 Larry's wet magneto and flat front tire spell disaster ... wth a "d" a "i" and an "y" nuff' said?
Fixed.




Lucifer random photography.

Not huge, but friendly as hell. Quick Bike Count?
Once again, the Numba' One bike in attendance? ... Guess.
The Sportster.
That's because Sportsters are bad ass, inexpensive, dependable, killing machines.
There might have been 3 Twin Cams, 2 old Turnips, 3 Shovels, Lucifer's Honda, and at least 8 Sportsters.

Sue Boy

 Yeah. The Sue Boy Motorcycle Ride, kick off for the Gasser Lounge's Johnny Cash Birthday Bash went of with only a Triumph mucking things up slightly twice, no big deal. Every rider who went got a free ride Johnny Cash Penny Pin to memorate the occassion. Big thanks to Mikey B. for toiling on the medival button press and Alan Stedman for the (yet again) bad ass original artwork! 

 Just a few quick pints before the start and within about a quarter mile were at the gas station conducting roadside repair...




Thanks to everyone who showed up! I'll be posting pics for the next week or so and we're doing a Lucifer Video on the ride, so that's in the future too. Other than that, perfect day for a cloudy ride around Palos Verdes and along the Terminal Island Freeway in Wilmington before heading back to the Gasser for our regularly scheduled debauchery.
