"Diane. 9:30 AM. Entering the town of Long Beach. Twelve miles South East of the Gasser Lounge. Slightly overcast day. Breakfast was $14.95. I had the tuna fish omelet with whole wheat toast. Coffee. Black. Slice of Cherry Pie. Damn good food... "




I'll bet you 9 out of 10 Sportster owners think Gary Cooper was an FBI agent investigating the death of Laura Palmer....

"What?"

High Noon Classics

Admit it. The lock ruins a good pictures, but in this age of "another bike stolen" on Instagram, this cheap solution keeps fucking thieves from just putting it in neutral and pushing it away. If you value your bike, don't worry about how it looks sitting in the lot. Bike thieves should be given the same as Rinaldo Pazzi "...bowels out."



Blogs are like Harold Llyod...
they're better when they're silent.

...ouch

June at the Long Beach Cycle Swap (4)

Black Flag!

Rebels always breaking clearly posted rules... EXIT <---
I admit, I don't even know* what kinda of bike this is, but it was cruising by at about 4 mph so I took an action shot! I got some mad photo skills bitch!

Slick pairing of old and new.


 Oh look, I took a picture of a non-Harley too. 

Actually, there's two non-Harley's in this post! It's like the end of an era or something infinitely less catastrophic. (...yawn)

Did you know I fancy a fine Sportster? Sportsters are America's Favorite Harley Davidson. Unfortunately, most of them are ugly Mares. It's rare you see so many Unicorns in a parking lot full of Mules.

You get it? Mares... female horses over four years old? Like girls bikes... over four... years... old? Sometimes I don't even know why I bother with trying to be humorous. "How do you like your martini Sir?" 
.... Dry

June at the Long Beach Cycle Swap (2)





Sometimes I have to thank random people for standing in shots, really, it helps disguise the background which is usually filled with hideous assemblies. "How many spokes can we fit into your front wheel... lets just keep adding them till we run out!" No thanks. The human eye can detect imperfections in symmetry unconsciously... keep it simple, keep it pure. The paint on the tank/frame of this Pan is perfect, not too much, not too little.

 Back in the day' I used to shoot a lot of bikes at the Long Beach Cycle Swap. Over the course of a few years my attention span either grew or shrunk maybe, sometimes this venue sucks balls and sometimes it rocks. Maybe because Born Free is coming, there's more out-of-towners getting an erection? But I was able to walk the lot today and the cool bike to horrid accessorized plastic-chromed money trap was skewed to my favor. So for the next few says I'll just be posting some cool pics like this little shovel below. Reminds me of Hang Ten shirts my mom used to buy me as a kid...




The ratio is usually 1/50, but today felt like a solid 1/30... big numbers in my world. And sweet Shovel. The paint attracts the eye, but it's the seat that fits the lines of this bike and wrap it up in a cosmic little bow!
