It has been said that cigarettes are the gateway to heroin. I'm not sure about that, but a CB 750F was my gateway drug to speed. My introduction to motorbikes began on the back of my dad's Honda. At the time ('79-80), there was nothing faster.



For a 10 year old, it was crack. I've been addicted ever since.

Nice looking place in Nola.
So, any Panigales in Birmigham museum?
Only Panigale in the museum was in the parking lot.



Photobucket recently changed their site and now anything red looks like shit. Second law of thermodynamics applies to software more than any other system.

Your Mobile accomodations got me to thinking about a great court case that could be tried by Judge Judy.

The bike in the Barber collection that I would really like to see, is the Morbidelli. More than any other bike in the world, that's the one I'd like to ride. I can't even imagine what an 848 cc V8, on the pipe, would sound like. Maybe something shrieky like one of the Hailwood 6 cylinder Hondas.

If you've never been to the US and are reading this RR from some other country, I will tell you now--if you ever travel to America, there's no better destination than New Orleans. There's no other city in the world like it.







Alligator, ribs and head cheese for lunch:



Above ground cemeteries for dessert (water table prevents burying bodies):

Anyone care to guess where I get my photogenic smiles from?



There's a pounded chicken breast under there. Despite looking a little like vomit, it was fucking incredible:



Hit up the WWII museum:








And after another night of New Orleans drinking and eating...

...we hit up the Ducati Dealer in New Orleans.



I dropped my bike off for some work and my dad gave me a ride back to the apt. Hadn't been on the back of a bike in a long time. That's when the flood of CB 750F memories hit me.



Then all too soon it was over. Dad had to get back to the grind in FL.



And he was off:

I think they should work on minimizing the irreversibilities.

I wandered the streets at night trying to capture the feeling of what New Orleans is like on film. There's nothing like it.






President Obama?

Angel Heart scene was recorded here.



If you haven't seen the movie, see it.

Back at my apartment. Extending my stay for a week.

This is New Orleans. Surreal, gorgeous, historic, eerie. And it just gets better and better.

Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop. The bar has been serving drinks since 1772. And still is lit by candles.
