Its funny watching biker trends. It's like any other mainstream culture. Right now, its rat rod bikes -- pans, knuckles and shovels as cheap as you can; retro bikes 60's and 70's style. I see em' on the the freeway with a gas can strapped in with a bungee cord because they're riding with a 2 gallon peanut gas tank... Baggers and choppers are out, rat rods are in. In 2003, this was the thing: custom choppers and these guys were in the right place at the right time. I watched the show, and even bought the entire...
Steve'n'Seagulls. They keep doing it: the redneck originals. I think I love this band. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Uvk4TgQWzI Banjo's weren't cool in the 90s, but this song was. For those that have no reference, here's the original: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Abrn8aVQ76Q
Time to re-do the site. Please excuse the mess for a few while I play around with things.
Polaris today announced that it will no longer be producing Victory Motorcycles. Read the full article here: http://www.roadracingworld.com/news/polaris-shutting-down-victory-motorcycles/ Kinda sucks. While I gotta admit I never really liked the looks of Victory bikes, they were an American made bike and from what I've heard, they were really well made. The capitalist in me loved the fact that competition is good for the marketplace. I have several friends who ride them, and loved them. With the experience they had they re-launched the Indian Brand, which they plan to focus on more now. This thing though: ...
After summing up the bank account between the move and Christmas, it was pretty clear I was to stay home last weekend. No exploring here. I changed the oil in the bike and ended up getting sucked into a Breaking Bad marathon, and just relaxed. It was fairly awesome. Overall, not a bad holiday weekend as holiday weekends go. I thought I'd make a blog post, either way. I keep thinking about the differences between Utah and Arizona, and maybe a few other states I've been to. Since I'm a road hound, the biggest comparison...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uyFpPSzjfUI RIP George Michael. You torqued out some great songs sir.
What a year. I'm still trying to sum it all up, but what I do know is how good I have it. Life is good; my family is all here, I have a great job and there's people about my life who love me and I love them. I'm not sure what else a person could ask for. My Christmas: My bike got an oil change: I don't want or need for much, so I asked for Oil for my bike. Oil drains better in a hot engine, so it was excuse to go...
So the plan is, to go riding for a couple of days after Christmas. Like, go get lost somewhere in southern Arizona riding. Pack a tent, take a bag, point the bike and see what happens kind of riding. It's been too damn long. So much has happened the last 2 months that It'll be nice to take a break and go explore some. I'm really right where I want to be, and I want to come out swinging for 2017. Last weekend I was sick and didn't get a chance to explore much,...
