Das Woche Ende

Had a good weekend. Friday night was my kid's first baseball game. All the grandparents and I watched him get his first base hit. Suburban parenthood steadily creeping in, life can't always be 80 proof and 100mph.

Before the sporting event, I was able to get some miles in with Bonetti. It was cold, but no rain. Stopped at the Vanilla Bean and there was a new KTM RC8 parked up. Two older dudes from a dealer in Rhode Island were on a long test ride. Very mean looking bike, I especially liked the orange.

Stopped for gas at this lost in time Ford dealership with one gas pump. They had two Shelby GT 500s on the lot.
Saturday I rode around with Butch and Nate. We did a slow, backroad trip to this dude's underground bike shop.

Butch was trying to sell the guy an electric golf car. There was so much cool stuff in the place, but I don't really know the guy well enough to go on a photo blitz of his shop. He does have a shovelhead chopper for sale for $4000.
Saturday night was chill with my kid and we watched the "Wizard of OZ". I still get freaked out by the flying monkeys.
Sunday evening was a bit different. Rammstein was playing in Worcester, Mass. Hit Ralph's Diner for a pre-game burger, a dive bar downtown and then the fire and explosion filled concert. It felt like being in Germany for a few hours.

Burned up 60 with Korrin today on the Road King and 40 on the Triumph doing laundry patrol.
Surprising how many miles you can squeeze in between responsibilities if you really try. Now it is back to work tonight.

They called it the "Black Bomber".

Should have called it the Triumph Killer.

Austrian Death Machine of the day

Night is long.

Parts Run

Helped Nate look up the parts he needs to fix his shovelhead. Then we took a ride to see Marco, then Rory to order up the stuff.

Rory is building an ironhead chopper. He designed and built a stainless steel front end for it. He said he drilled all those holes and never broke a single drill bit. Has an oil in frame design and single riser handlebars. It will be weird and cool when he gets it done.

Blake Young is a Hero

From wrecker to checker. Watch this 4 minute clip of Saturday's AMA Superbike race from Atlanta.

Now that is guts.

Another weekend

Didn't do much this weekend. Rolled out to see Kellie's cousin's band on Friday. Another cover band, nothing great. Felt good to to leave early just to get more miles in. Rode slow and very backroad, as the gestapo was out in full force with roadblocks everywhere.
Saturday was dirtbikes in the yard and an awesome AMA Superbike race on Speed TV.

Towing a Honda VTX to the dealership.

Jeff checking in from Maui.

Hanging with little sis at the bar.


Sunday we did a walk-through of the Lebanon fairgrounds. The 13th Anniversary Party is going to be great. The management of the venue is on board with our way of thinking. The place has covered vendor booths, large pavillion, stage, two arenas, one grass and one soft dirt, free camping, a pond and lighting.

Did I mention FREE CAMPING? Now the mayhem starts on Friday night.
