It's been a good ride so far!
Since I was just a kid all I have ever wanted to do was to make people laugh or just smile. As a child, an educator sent a note home to my parents. It read; If your son thinks he is going to get through life making people laugh he is in for a RUDE AWAKENING! He is not living up to his potential. WELL, I'M STILL NOT! But at this site you will at least see me try. From the heart, thank you for even being interested, it means the world to me. I always say, I have not a single fan but many a friend!

What a day!
I can't explain the joy that old bikes bring me, all of them. To see an old knuck, pan or flattie engine even sitting on a shelf touches somewhere down deep in my soul and makes me dream of what that bike was and what it could be. There are no ugly old bikes! They are each beautiful and magical to me. They all have a story to tell if only they could. To see them going down the road makes me crazy and I chase them down, but to ride one is like nothing you have ever known. There is just something so mystical about twisting the throttle on an antique piece of iron, stepping on the foot clutch and hand shifting through the gears and wondering what you would do if you really had to stop quickly, it is near impossible to put into words. I stood there for a moment, just listening to her run today and thought that life is good. No matter what the universe throws at us, no matter how hard the times, my knuck is back on the road and will bring me so much more joy! I could not stop thinking about how proud I was to have this old girl in my garage but I was damn near 3/4's hard looking at her outside of it!
Until we see each other on the road again,
Keep the wind in your face,
Tits in your back
and The Man off your ASS!
