Much like the shirt a few post back......

I've been sort of partial to the '77 lately and have been ignoring the Buell

I got this bike from a good friend a few years ago and rode the piss out of it for a good while . It was my go to bike whenever the '56 was down , which as it turned out was pretty often because I took it apart every few months and redid it .

Seemingly endless horsepower , comfortable , fast and quick ( and I'm no tiny tot ) and good old plain fun to ride . I need to get it tuned a little and there are a few things I want to clean up a here & there , but I'd like to go for a long ride on this one someday and just see where it takes me on a couple tanks of gas .

Little Iron Man

At first we couldn't get him in it , now it's hard to get it off of him !

The sins of the father are often visited on the son . . .

In this case , the sin is of being a Star Wars nerd and my kid thinking that Star Wars is also pretty awesome as well . This is Vaughn and his buddy Thurston , in the middle of a heated battle between a Tie fighter , and an X-wing . I think they were taking a little break in the conflict to have their picture taken although it does look like Thurston is pulling off a sneak attack on Vaughn's 6 o'clock !

This kind of stuff gives me an upset stomach whenever I see it

All it takes is one bad decision to ruin your whole night , and this is a great example of not knowing that you fucked up before you've even left your house . . .

I was at the Apple store buying some technology yesterday with my wife and I turned around to see this staring back at me . I could tell pretty quickly he wasn't who his shirt depicted him as being .

I was suddenly lost trying to figure out if he was just some dude who thought the shirt with skulls on it was cool , or if it was actually some kind of MC that just didn't get the memo , or what . As soon as I took the picture he was on his way so I didn't get to ask him where he got the sweet gear or where I might score one for myself .

The proper authorities have been informed however . If anyone who reads this blog knows anything about this shirt or who makes it , drop a line so I can pass it on .

Not a lifestyle , but a way of life . . .

Righteous iron at the compound

I took this picture a few days before my buddy Jay sold his sporty . I think we had just come back form a ride through coronado into IB and back up through Chula Vista . He had just finished putting it back together after a teardown and paint job .

This pictures seems calm or peaceful to me for some reason .

I think that's because shortly after I took this picture we ended up in the backyard having some drinks in the shade . Bro~mance style .

There are lots of moments that define who you are and where your life is headed in different ways . . .

This is one of those moments .

It's hard to explain how this makes a dad feel . . . . Little kids play kissing , buddies goofing around . At 3 years old you aren't very romantic , but still even a 3 year old knows what a kiss means . He seems Daddy & Mommy kissing all the time so he gets it . This is a heartbreaker moment for sure .

One of many to come in my life and hopefully I'm around long enough to see more and more of these amazing moments unfold .

I think this is officially ( unofficially ) Vaughn's first real ( pretend ) girlfriend .
