..from the internet somewhere.
Total concept might be a little off on some of these bikes. 
There is at least one thing on each that caught my eye though...
For better or for worse?

Good angles...

Sick....Barefoot in 1975...

Tail/brake lights?

CT90 time

CT90 Engine swap with a low mile Mid-ohio bought engine.

Fancy lift....30 bucks on CL.

The new engine had some chain issues. 
I had to take off the stator side engine cover to get to the sprocket.

High-Low gears making things difficult.

All buttoned back up.
I was about to go back in the house when I heard a little voice inside my head....
always finish what you start.
Okay, dad.  
I put it in the frame and came inside.
It's been a while since I went to bed smelling like grease.
Looks like it might be garage season again.

Tomorrow?  Hook up everything and start cleaning the carb I bought with this engine....

I have had one of these in the back yard for a while.......

Apparat X Anja
You can't go wrong with that combination

fold down your hands
give me a sigh
put down your lies

lay down next to me
don't listen when I scream
bury your doubts and fall asleep

find out I was was just a bad dream

let the bed sheet soak up my tears
and watch the only way out disappear
don't tell me why
kiss me goodbye

for neither ever nor never
neither ever nor never

Where did the wind in my sails go?

Saturday, September 22, 2012


  I planted peach, plum and pear trees in my backyard around 3 years ago.  
One tree each.
The pear tree was the biggest of the three when planted but it half died.....
I was bummed but decided to let it regrow from the 2-foot nub that was left.

Today I was in the yard and I saw a half ant eaten pear on the ground.
My first thought- what are the neighbors doing...argh..
THEN I realized it was from my tree.  
I looked up and about 10 foot up on the tallest branch there were two more!

Weekend Trails

"You think you can take me on that little XR100?" -C
"Yes, try to keep up!"-Me

Trail through the woods.

Oh?    Trying to catch up are we?

It wasn't really fair.
Logs only I can hop over....grass and bushes 3-4 feet tall.
She didn't ever have a chance....

Time to go home.....

Who is this waiting for me?
At first glance her mouth looks like she is pouting...
but really she is saying "Broom broom broom"-!

"When can I ride?"-D
"When they come out with booster seats for motorcycles and Karla won't kill Ryan for letting me"-Me
Sad face - D

"That's a bunch of S%#@!" -D 
(at least what I imagine her three year old brain thinking)

Lake Lemon with Hutch

Lazy Sunday.

Hutch on the highway pegs.
Indiana Corn.

Lake Lemon.


Looking for trouble in the water.

This was one of those days where I could have just stared at the clouds all day.

I come home for a second, leave to get new brake light bulbs and this is what I come home to.
Don't ask don't tell?

B and W

Trains are neat.



 My Saturday.
I finally have a nephew to teach how to skateboard and ride motorcycles with.

These two will be fun to watch grow up!

Moyou's first letter.

Moyou got her first letter in the mail today.

She was soooo excited she wouldn't even eat!

The artists signed their work.

She wanted it hung on the fridge in a place where should could easily reach it with her nose.
  Thank you Harper and Finley!

Home for the weekend

My dad, brother, and I went to an auction.

Only 7 in the US.

Wooden spokes......

Not down with this style....took too long.
People in general were spending way too much for crap.  

I like tractors.  
I think if I lived in the country, I would like to have a tractor just to ride around the property on to feel special.

Direct injection rotary engine anyone?

"Baby corn!"  - Dessie

I skated here almost everyday for the first 4 years of skating....
Curb squirrel?
