So, after the festivities this weekend, we decided to take the BSA's out for a spin, and I had to run by my buddy Curley's birthday party for his little girl.
The Odd Couple - Corinna Mantlo's 68' BSA Lightning
and my 68' BSA Lightning chopper
headed to a princess party!
We stayed late, hung out a bit afterward, and decided it was time to go our separate ways, I headed back to the garage to drop off the chopper and pick up my daily rider, the Suzuki. It was a little after midnight on Saturday, and I was heading to the last traffic light in my hood before home when - BANG! Some jerkwad ran a stop sign and pulled out in front of me and forced me to lay it down. I dropped the bike, but I ended up flying through the air and colliding with a parked car. I wish i could tell you more but i was unconscious after that and he left me there for dead. Luckily some friendly neighbors saw the whole thing happen and called the paramedics. I woke up some time later on the ER table, fighting with some guy who was trying to take my pants off. I'm totally fine, bruised up and stitched up, but no internal injuries or brain damage or anything like that. Just a reminder to look both ways, even the way you're not going, and never underestimate the power of one stupid person.
Who's it going to be?
Wait and See...

Well, last weekend started up pretty good. We had a party down at the Widow Jane Distillery in Red Hook, sponsored by a few of our favorites like Biltwell, Lowbrow and Keino Cycles. There was a free tasting of all their boozy wares, free pulled pork sandwiches, and all the free beer you could snake out of a iced down whiskey barrel out back. They had been working on their mascot - a modern restoration of a Vincent by Stephen Pate, and whether you fall on the period correct side or the modern chop side, this thing was an impressive piece of machinery.

We may have already held our annual Full Costume Ride, The Nightmare Before Hazzard County, and we've already had two stellar shows with DMT, but there's still one encore performance to be had at the Gasser Lounge when The Dead Marionette Theatre pull out all the stops on October 31st 2013 (Halloween Night)
... plus hey, who's not going to miss yet another chance to dress up and play something other than "biker" like they all do on the weekends? Shit gets so old I wanna new drug... (probably the worst lyrics of any Huey Lewis song ever).
And as I always am fond of quoting myself; "Get your Puckered Starfish off the Rod Iron fence and do something besides complaining there's never anything to do!"

Lil' Red and the Big Bad Wolf at the Purple Orchid along the Nightmare Before Hazzard County Full Costume Ride!
"What? Over? Did you say "over"?
Nothing is over until we decide it is!
Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?
"Maybe it was an Iguana?"
It was NO Iguana.
"A bald Monkey, an elf or a Leprechaun?"
It was Nothing like that Penis-Breath!!!
You know, the question I get asked most often is, "Tony, how do you go to the bathroom in the suit?"
CARNEVIL at the Gasser Lounge
... and these guys too.
(Let's just save their story for another time. Until the confidentiality stipulation has been lifted)
More pics coming soon...

Man, what a Blast! Thanks to everyone who made it out, all the irregular Lady Hump regulars and all the Chop Cult'ers who rolled out and those who decided to stay the night and experience the DEAD MARIONETTE THEATRE show at the Gasser Lounge! Thanks (of course, once again) to the Gasser Lounge for fist bumping the Wonder Twin Powers with the Lady Hump and making bacon! Gotta mention @Thiswhiskeybentbitch Jessica who entertained us at the Purple Orchid (exotic tiki lounge) and set the tone for the rest of the night! Thanks Jessica!

If you've been to one, you already know! CARNEVIL at the Gasser Lounge is off the hook! Three Nights, October 25th, 26th, and 31st this year (with the Nightmare Before Hazzard County / Full Costume Ride on the 26th). Be there one night, or like some, be there for all three... We've been in full production all month long and it's going to be horrifically grand!
The Full Costume Ride will stay on the streets, we've arranged with some Hazzard County friends to bar hop local, drink specials, etc., so if your costume is spandex, lingerie, or some other thin polyester see-through material... great! And you already know, FREE collectible* event shop rags for motos all year long for every ride hosted by the Lady Hump / Gasser Lounge, so ride on down and pick one up!
* Not counting the ones Wyatt had hanging in the garage and his Uncle tore off the wall to clean up some oil! "You did what...????? You used what!!!!!" (I'll see if I can replace some of them, but I usually give them all away or include them in mail orders after the event... sorry Wyatt!)
Dead Marrionette Theatre performances all three nights!
