The Epicness Just Keeps Coming

There are a lot of amazing places to see, and they're not in your neighborhood.

Happy Thanksgiving

Be thankful for what you do have, not what you don't have.

AND, be thankful there isn't a pack of bloodthirsty zombies on your front lawn after more than just your turkey and cranberry sauce. Not yet anyway.

Moto Boner

Some epic shots from the KLR forum. Enough to make you want to leave all the bullshit to the rest of the world and live on two wheels forever. We're heading West and it's just a matter of time.

Oh Yeah!

I've lacked some femaledom lately, so here you go.

Sunday & the Living's Easy

Great weather this weekend and a good Sunday out in the shop working on Monica's KZ and my KLR. I had my gang of four legged kids hanging out too, enjoying the sun.

Brick aka 'El Torito', the Little Bull

Big Lola

Bully, the old boy of the group.

Say Goodbye to Stock

One last look at the stock KLR before it gets the Bad Monkey treatment. I just picked up a fresh set of Avon Distanzia dual sport tires on Friday to replace the cheapies that are on it now.
The transformation has begun from boring stock to it's new life as a ZSDV: Zombie Search & Destroy Vehicle. Those undead fucks aren't going to kill themselves.

Swap Meet Time

Headed up to Charlotte tomorrow to run through the swap meet for a few hours. I'm not after anything real specific, just hunting for anything cool or a good deal. It's a good excuse to hang out with the NC crew either way.

I'll mainly be hunting for 2010 bagger parts, and looking forward to a titty contest featuring unattractive, semi-drunk women no younger than 50.

If I score anything good I'll post it tomorrow night.

What's Worth Doing?

This. The first shot is in Utah, and the second in Bolivia. These were two of the winning photographs in the 2010 contest on the HUBB. For the uninitiated, the HUBB is the Horizons Unlimited Bulletin Board located at

HU is an entire site dedicated to long distance travel on a motorcycle. It's a great website, but I will warn you: Reading the material and trip stories, etc. on the site will likely give you the urge to abandon all the bullshit most of us fill our daily lives with, pack your bike and hit the road. For a long time.

The Joy of a Beater Bike

Got the KLR out of the truck and took my first spin around the neighborhood. There's always something satisfying about finding a running titled bike for so cheap, plus I've been wanting one ever since my trip around New Zealand on a KLR last fall. I've got a fever, and the only bikes!


Slow progress, but I got a sweet ass set of Series 413 Progressive shocks for Satan's Slingshot. 15" eye-to-eye! They've got an over/under compression spring and rebound spring. Pretty fucking sweet, plus I was able to make Dirty Ed a good deal on the Superglide Sport shocks I was going to use. Everybody wins.

KZ on the Table

The weather for working in the shop is prime, so Monica's KZ650 went on the lift for some front end therapy. It's getting a new set of fork seals and an upgraded set of tapered neck bearings to replace the OEM loose ball bearings(not the Japanese' best idea). Monica is looking forward to non-leaking forks and no more high speed front end wobble.

It Pays to Troll Craigslist

I've had plans to get a KLR 650 for awhile, but had been looking at saving$$/selling another bike to raise the funds needed to acquire one. Lo and behold, today I am scanning the Columbia CL and this pops up. 1988 KLR with less than 17,000 miles. I go to check it out. A little rough cosmetically, but fires up and runs smoothly and has a clear title. Wait for it...........$700!! Fuck yeah. I loaded it up.

Stay tuned as I turn it into a pissed off, curb hopping, wheelie popping, two wheeled assault vehicle.
