So I've been looking for a sport bike to scratch that other itch . . .

The one that a chopper can't really scratch . I love choppers and always will , and I'm certainly not getting rid of the '56 but I also like to ride fast and stop hard and lean around corners . . . that kind of shit .

Well a friend who is really into sport riding has this bike , a 2008 Buell Ulysses . It's kind of a sport / touring bike . Little longer wheelbase than the lightning , slightly more horsepower and larger fuel capacity , bigger cc's . . . etc . Sort of a bigger bike all around , which will fit me well . Not to mention that my friend is 6'6" so I know I'll fit on it like a charm .

He has this bike as well as a brand new Kawasaki Z1000 or some such monster and decided he wanted only one bike , and chose the Kaw . I have been bugging him about letting me have the Buell when he was tired of it and I finally got the call .

I won't bother with what I'm getting it for , suffice to say it's obnoxiously low . He's a good friend and he really made me an offer I couldn't refuse . Keep an eye out for my taillight , moving rapidly away from you , very soon .

R.I.P Cool Hand Luke......

This was back in the mid 80's

We were all sitting around drunk at my house one friday night and decided we should all go camping . In a drunken fit we decided that we should go TOMORROW and start packing now . Well for some reason we decided that instead of a relatively easy ride up into the mountains of San Diego , we should go to Big Bear . Smart thinking .

We made a bunch of phone calls to various girlfriends and people who would want to meet up with us and struck out into the night .

By 4 in the morning we were all packed up and on the road into the night .

We eventually made it at around 8 or 9 the next morning , and by later in the afternoon all the girls in the trucks showed up with food and drinks and tents and stuff . It was beautiful , and a really nice summer weekend and there was a lake that we splashed around in and lots of nakedness and tomfoolery .

Anyhow someone took this picture of me on the road , about an hour before we hit the mountains .

That was pretty awesome .

score of the week

So I talked to an old aquaintence of mine from way back . . . he was selling at this deal called " Skater trader " where lots of people get together and sell vintage / old / interesting / junk skate gear and memorabilia . He had this skate for sale , but mentioned that he wanted to get tattooed but was broke . . . right place right time .

We struck a deal and now she's mine . 1985 29" Santa Cruz D/P with older Indy 215 6 hole trucks and Sims " the wheel II " wheels . This thing is ready for some serious carving . . . maybe tile , MAYBE one wheel out .

All text blog action

So I read this on another blog I like to check out and it struck me , if you find it objectionable , don't fucking read it . . . how's that sound ?

Why complain to the server about stuff you don't like to read , shut the fuck up about it and go look at something else . . . . boy people are fucking sissies sometimes .

Anyhow this is what I saw on the internet today . . . .
