A little something besides hairy knees.

Self portrait off of I-96/I-69 Lansing MI

"clean rest stop, no glory hole"

Freshly cleaned restroom, no ass gaskets. Had to make my own.

Think of it like a nicotine patch

Just takes the edge off

GS1100 going to Michigan

All of that extra space is the physical representation of the void in my heart that another motorcycle is out of my life. I feel ill.

Waiting for my neighbor to he home so he can pull my truck out of the ditch. I loaded the bike from the road. Drive it right in.

As a payback for the fuel line replacement on his mower, my neighbor gave me a jack. I've needed one like this since my craftsman one shit the bed.

Yazoo mech

I wish I had people who needed bikes worked on around me more.

Replaced fuel lines on this zero turn mower for a neighbor.

GS1100 on the road

Delivery date moved up to next week, bike is roadworthy. Only little things left to tweak. Didn't ride it as much as I wanted to to ensure all the gremlins are out, but Rick is willing to stomp them out as they pop up.

Pete test drove it after I did so I could get some videos.

I'll upload them later tonight and add a link here.

EDIT: Here be the links blood:

Birds nesting in my helmets

Left the garage door open all day.
Now two of my helmets have the bird nest option installed. I feel like sleeping beauty, like I could pirouette around singing and birds would flock to me. Of course by sleeping beauty I mean fat hairy unfortunate looking fellow with gas.

I am so ready to go

I need a steady diet of bugs, road grime, and campsite "surprise sex".

Bags fit the bff sissy like they were made for each other.

So pretty I thought N8 would love it

Just like the iron mountain shell cloud.

This one is more gay. 2 rainbows.

How do you like me now?

Had to buy them

They're made in Michigan!

Free state travel maps

Nate and I want to loop all the great lakes. So I've been getting maps to help plan.

We've played just the tip with Wisconsin before. Now I want to go all the way with that state. Bareback. I want to have little Wisconsin's with my face on them.

Free-ish Stickers and a contest coming

So yesterday I was supposed to do some Motorcycle work, but instead I burned a brush pile, built a dam in the stream in the backyard, and dug a ditch so my front yard will drain better.
I did finally get to go to the auto parts store and get some hose clamps for the GL1100 and a replacement shift knob for my truck.

A chrome skull with red eyes. Not as heavy as the chrome skull I had in my jeep.

Through the URL for this blog on the sticker and ordered them today.
When I get them I'll send a bunch to the rest of Team Tabernacle,  then the rest will be given away to the general public for free. Well the cost of a self addressed stamped envelope, and a promise.

What John Q. will have to promise to do I will need to get with the rest of the team and figure out.

Sticker pasties pix? Tag cop cars? Stick on corpses? Bar urinals?

All I know is the proof will have to be in a picture, and that picture will be posted here on the Tabernacle.

Maybe prizes will be involved. 8"x10" signed glossies of me. Pictures of the squirrel digging into my attic, completely shaved but otherwise unharmed. Maybe as I grow more Howard Hughes-ish in wealth and ingenuity, I could give a motorcycle away. I mean a real one. Like with a title and operational and everything.

seconds later the whole thing was a gate to hell

I think I'm burning poison ivy too

I'm having fun though. Motorcycle progress tomorrow.

Not fake noises this time Nate

Like red robin, but for real. I don't know how the people in this home depot are going to look at me when I'm done. I fully expect a crowd outside. I hope it's all noise and no collateral damage like at knights. The fact that that fear is in my head right
now should tell you how bad it is. I'm glad my family isn't with me.

On a related note, the hot shrimp at the Mexican place by us is awesome.

Mmmmmm...seafood in middle Tennessee!

2 out of 3 aint bad

Waiting on the headlight for the GS1100GL. Rode it up and down the street. New air box fit like it was made for it!

Next, the xl125. It's fucked. Changed oil, checked breaker point and timing, rebuild the carbs, replaced broken left and right hand levers. Installed new petcock. Kicked it over, ran for a second. Kicked it through again and whatever seized it for the neighbor hooked me up. I think it's in the starter gearing. I can still try to bump start it while in gear. Well, could. It crapped out more.

So since I had time I through the BFF sissy bar on ole reliable and installed the saddle bags and the bracers for them. I'll take the sissy back off when the XS goes to powder coat.

Little dirt bike stopped working. Nephews were riding it(it is theirs after all). Happened right after I caught them checking for gas with a twig. I'm sure I just need to unclog the tank.

Lots of progress.

Wife took the kids to her mother's for the day.
