Jingle Bells


Yeah, yeah fuck you too

Normally putting on a rollerblade video does pretty well to clear house.
But this clip caught my attention.

Covers dimpled for speed




































All I have of the article.
Other then that bubble seat, I would say this is perfection.

Could stare for days.

Oskhosh-Sheboygan-Oshkosh

Bike needed a wash, im lazy
Leon makes a damn fine sundae
Did a whole lot of walking with a 30mph upshore wind
Have had the same feeling about GS' many times



M Schettl

Oshkosh has much urban cycle potential

Bikes kick ass

 
 
And I will.
Got in some miles, it was a sloppy mess.   But once you get to that hard pack snow, hot damn is it fun.

Nothin' new here boys





Not bad given past sculptures
The big smackdown was in Vegas last night.
Quite a bit of design and thought went into Senior's bike.  Not quite my cup of tea but he redeemed himself in my book.
But people have been whittling away at big blocks of aluminum for quite some time now.

Sans the sweet blower and drag slick

Gas Monkey - shit.. I have seen 12 of those choppers at Davenport every year.   Nicely done, but nothing to show off with. 
Much respect for riding it to Vegas.

Jesse,
 Shut up and build.

Unknown Delivery

Alright, now to work on #4

Back to the water with you.

Always classy with the duct.
Ratio-rite

Meltdown
Sanded and field tested, needs more glass and a good flattening.

End of a season?

Glad to have gotten one last ride on Tire before the fall.







   
And a ride in before the salting.


In it till the end

Jesse got a DQ, aint gonna stop nothin'.

In all reality, who gives a fuck who wins.      I just want to see people try to compare these "Choppers".

Real Marketing

I don't give a shit how much you are going to tell the magz what your shock weighs.

This is what I want to hear.
