I'd vote for the bobber too, but I would put some sort of rear fender on it.

I'd build the bobber looking thing out of a wrecked bike, but there is not a chance that I would pay $1000 more for the bobbed version, really, I don't think I would pay $1000 total for the bobbed version.

No I told the guy he had to take the boxes of crap that I removed. Unless you know of someone that is looking for a set of 35 inch Fonzi bars. I'm just glad to see her go.

The bobber/chopper people are a different breed. Some to the extreme of seeing how skinny they can make the bike with the least amount of parts. Myself I think some bobbers are cool looking. After seeing what some of those things sell for I thought I'd pick up a cheap Shadow and work it backwards and see what I could get out of it.

Don't get me wrong, if you can make your money, do it. Just not my style

A request was sent out for me to visit the Gonzo compound late yesterday afternoon. A cryptic message conveyed that my help was needed finding some odd size knobbies.

I have no idea what they are putting in that Del-Co water, but they are creating a mad scientist in Sparta.

This video is a month old, but I finally had a chance to edit footage from my first AMA-sanctioned DS ride, the Long Cane Dual Sport, near Abbeville, South Carolina. It didn't go as smooth as I had hoped, but I survived, even if parts of my bike didn't.

Harding's will treat you right, so far we have bought 5 bikes off them and no complaints. Steve Kaser's the man.

When I went in to pickup my Tiger the recall for the turn signals came out that morning, they had no new style spares. They took a new Speed Triple off the floor and my Tiger back to the shop and swapped the signals so I could take delivery of the Tiger, over the top to me as far as customer service goes. Could of easily just had me wait a week for new ones to come in, and only had the labor cost for one bike.

A couple of months ago I posted that I had just traded for a DRZ and was looking for riders and locations. Well... Every year my buddies and I ride to VMD and for several years we have ridden up to Wooster to check out the newest Moto-Guzzi's (I posted a demo ride pic last weekend). Well, this year while we there and I was Un-numbing my hands from 200 miles at 65mph on the DRZ I fell into lust with a 1994 R1100RS. I traded for it today. So far I love it. I only ended up going 80 miles as Weasel Boy Brewing was calling my name.




Thanks to everyone who volunteered to show me around Ohio dirt, but now I need to get some Barbacks and plan a trip down through the Mississippi delta to hear some blues. Never done that yet...
