Hopefully checking out lower manhattan today on my two wheeled urban assault vehicle. Pics to come if I make it out.

I don't think riding a fairly new BMW would put you high on the list of probable looters. But watch out for looters...they may like your bike. Don't forget the GoPro so we can see some footage.

Well, RTB3 is successfully in the books. :

On to my list of riding projects. What next? Hill Country Dead-End Ride? Red to the Rio? 3 Stooges Dirt Ride? I dunno. Maybe all 3. It's prime riding time.

November 17th



While in Ohio, I had a part time gig at Iron Pony to keep me out of trouble and have extra bike spending cash. One of my co-workers was involved in an accident and Iron Pony is donating 10% of all sales, including internet sales, on November 17th. You're going to buy stuff anyway.......

So if you have a list started, please shop www.ironpony.com on the 17th

If you haven't checked them out, huge selection and great tire prices. Free shipping on orders over $100.

Yes, I happened to that tail section. Apparently no one noticed the missing right mirror and broken beak on my bike. I drunkenly heaved my bike up and...promptly fell over, taking said tail section out. I think I did him a favor, it was ugly anyway.

Don't worry about me drunk riding, the motor wasn't even running lol. It was a pretty epic fail on my part.
