Worked in this crap all day. AEP pump jobs this morning,come back to find 3 trailers damn near on their bellies. Think I spouted a string of profanities that would've made a pirate blush. And it's supposed to be single digits tomorrow right?

snow crickets?

I see the winter depression has set in for NEOh...

I have started in on winter motorcycle maintnance. I always wait till after the bike show to start in on this on the offhand chance that the weather is reasoble enough to ride to tue IX. I need to replace the plastic thingy the protects the chain and swing arm at the pivot, also check the swing arm bushing and replace chain and sprockets and rear tire. Since the TDM doesn't have a centerstand or frame members under the engine I need to fabricate a stand. I will use the footpeg mounting points for the uprights and make the base big enough to provide good stability. Hope to put some sort of little casters underneath so I can slide the rig around the garage. Maybe something like this...

I suppose we should have a mid winter meat and greet to help alleviate the winter doldrums. Any ideas for a location?

Guess the bike (not the scooter)

Found this video. It'd be cool to know if one of my bikes came from this line.

If you watch it, See if you can figure out what bike they are building in the video.

It's a cult bike so funky, it has a longitude, latitude, and altitude tattooed on it's body! "The longitude and latitude position numbers correspond to the peak altitude of the highest paved road accessible by motorcycle in Europe: the Col de la Bonette (Bonette pass), located in the southern French Alps. " (44d19'24.53" N - 6d48'22.33" E - 2802 M [9193'])

I didn't embed it because the initial cover shows the model

I find it a little archaic that they were painting the fairings by hand. Bet that doesn't happen anymore

That video is a couple years old, they've changed the fairing since then

Spent the weekend at the Motorcyclepedia Museum in Newburgh, NY. We went to a fundraiser there on Saturday. It was a great time, good food, band and Pit Leigner riding the wall of death. This museum has the most complete collection of Indian Motorcycles in the world. At least one model for every year they were in business from 1901-1953, and many more.

There are hundreds of awesome vintage bikes there, just a few minutes from Orange County Choppers, which really doesn't interest me much. What kind of amazed me was the various bike paraphernalia (posters, models, clothing etc) that related to the different eras. And yes Mike, the wife is much more photogenic than I.

This is NOT my cup of tea. However I can appreciate the time and passion that someone put into making this bike something they loved, and for that reason it is still cool!

Not my cup o' tea either really, but the one's from the sixties and seventies were done on a budget for the most part. Resourcefulness and ingenuity were more important than just throwing money at a vtwin and chroming everything.
