a few Pics from the Spring Thaw Swap

I made it to the swap about 2pm, small crowd this year, at least it seemed that way to me. More parts than I have seen in recent years, and most of the same bikes you see every year. Lots of Easter eggs, a few "rats" some nice customs and some awesome vintage stock bikes. Only took a few pics, mostly because I am picky. I like bikes that look like they can be ridden. Of the few of those I saw, I will share. I know a lot of work goes into these bikes, and I personally have never built a choppy, but I dont have to be a chef to tell you that the food tastes like shit. Both barrels productions put on a great show, and I cant wait for next years event. There was a Norton club there too, but like a dumbass I forgot to take photos of their bikes. Photos may suck, I'm not a photographer.

Anyhoo on to the bikes.

 This 400 reminded me of the one my dad had.

 I just liked this one, dunno why from the crappy photo

 I thought this Indian was cool until I overheard the builder pointing out all the bit he added on from cars and other non motorcycle bits. The bike is still cool, but fuck man, if shit needs to be pointed out to someone, you're doing it wrong.

this one was next to the Indian and I would like to know what the engine is if anyone knows.

No photos of the main floor of the event with all the vendors...maybe next time.

So I'm ejected from the garage

GeoTagged, [N35.72109, E86.67432]

Day after having the pole-barn guy over I get to move most of my stuff out of the garage and into the shed. All so we can shoehorn the minivan into the garage. Taking bets as to when the first dent or scratch happens from opening a door into something. Get to look at buying a plastic shed bow to put the golf cart in. WTF. Hopefully I'll have my space back within a week.

XT350 update

Put the eBay pegs and rear brake pedal on. They came today. Now only waiting on the carb joints so I can start this bad mofo.

No pics, just don't feel like it. Stop pressuring me for pics

Jesus alright already.

Knuckle Tats

 I wish I had the wherewithal to rock a knuckle tat. Melissa and I found some tonight amongst the Googles. First tat to show up was the Michigan one. Coincidence? I think not. Obviously stolen from

I think the Michigan one would go great with my hand-map tattoo.
