Toga! Toga! Toga!
I know it's a little early, but happy birthday to me. I'm having a toga party, the Animal House way.

Panheads forever

Uncle Bob's '49 Panhead on the right. First bike he bought and still rides it today.

Balancing flywheels

Ahh, balanced flywheels..
Drillin' holes.

Flywheel on balancing tool on the mill. Anywhere you rest the weight, it should stay. Keep drilling holes on either side 'til it's even.

Balancing sheet

My parents knew how to party

Tranny talk


Juice is never sorry for partyin'. He and his buddies just had a moped rally in Denver.
Mushrooms. Desert. Campfire. Motorcycles. Dancing. Take me with you, I'm ready to see a ghost.

My Lady

Our lady of blessed acceleration, don't fail me now. I was inspired by one of my favorite movies
to get an OLBA.

The snow is melting, so I'll see you on the road soon.

Kentucky Traveler

I get a call from Eugene in Chicago saying that they have a buddy in need of a place to stay on his way through Colorado. I asked if he was "ok" and Eugene proceded to tell me this kid's story. I said hell yeah, he can stay with me, the only catch is I'm in the process of moving out of my place. I get a call from Brad and meet him at a gas station close to one of the shops I hang out at and where he will be keeping his bike while in town. It's dumping cats and dogs, but this kid sticks out like a sore thumb. I walk up to Brad and give him a welcoming Colorado hug and tell him to start his bike, we're only a few blocks away from the Speedmetal. We get to the shop and I introduce Brad to the guys. Later he told me that from riding 300 miles in the pouring rain, he doesn't even remember meeting the guys and going to get food later that day. I took Brad out around Denver, showed him cool shit, even got in a car accident on out way to a metal show(not my fault by the way). The guys at Speedmetal let him fix up his bike there and even gave him a new 21 to replace the dry rotting one. I think Brad is an ispiration to a lot of people, including myself. So many of us make excuses for not doing what we actually want to do, just ride. Brad, you are more than welcome back in Colorado. And to all those other travelers going across the states, all you have to do is ask a friend if they know someone in the town your passing through. Beats the shit out of stinkin' and sleeping under picnic tables at rest stops, plus you might just make a new friend.
