Kopps. ONE OF the best burger joints in Milwaukee. this place is slathered in stainless steel and all the employees don the old white uniforms with the paper hats. the bugers kickass, and their shakes are killer. i'll post up THE BEST burger joint later this summer when they host the annual Cheaters C.C. show.

there was a herbie marathon on AMC this weekend. i forget how much i used to love those movies. i think i've seen the first one a million times and this was the first time ive seen it since elementary school. its the reason i have a mild obsession with one day owning a beetle that scrubs the bumper on wheelstands.

so i had to take a break from "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" in order to pick up another book for my history class. the professor wanted us to do a book report on something that pertains to the curriculum: history post 1945. since we just covered the "counter-culture" of the sixties, i chose "The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test". it's about Ken Kesey (author of "Cuckoo's Nest") and a bunch of hippies, bikers, and musicians that jumped on a bus and ran around the country dropping LSD as often as possible. definitely an interesting read, espcially when Tom Wolfe, author, attempts to describe the feeling of an acid trip.

same dance, different ballroom.

so here we go again.... she's torn down, headed for the sandblaster, then my homemade basement spray booth, then on to re-assembly... deja vu. done this the last two years, and i'm actually excited for it! it's kinda like legos. this year things will be a tad different... the dooosh is leaving for FL tomorrow morning, so i won't have the extra hand to help, but oh well.... not the first time. and i won't be at the shed assembling it either... gonna do it at my work this year. so close yet so far....

it's time's like these i'm thankful for my dad showing me the basics of turning wrenches. (oh c'mon, i'm allowed to get sentimental every once in a while.) that's him on my shovel when i rode down to visit. so, pardon if the posts get slim, I'll be busy busting my ass. thanks for staying tuned.

and she's back on the road, just in time for a trip. ride safe out there big guy! love you and wish i was riding with you both!

Scott "Wino" Weinrich, formerly of St.Vitus has a new album out and it is killer. definitely worth checking out.

and i never knew this, but he played with a buddy of mine, Rob, in the group Solace. very cool. AND LOOK ROB!!! YOU'RE FAMOUS!!! YOU'RE ON WIKIPEDIA!
issue 25 of DiCE is out and in my personal opinion.... best cover yet. some rad pics of Jeremiahs knuckle, and the shovelhead Max recently finished with the mini-fairing on it.
so if you didn't know where it came from....

i'm itching to ride again.....

just a friendly reminder to ride safe, and don't try anything stupid.

tom foster.

ok, i'm a dog person. out of the goodness of our heart, we reluctantly adopted a cat cause she was a stray that we couldn't bear seeing freeze outside in the cold. well, she went and got herself pregnant and 4 kittens popped out. I started calling them "the 4 kittens of the apocalypse" but then a friend named them "the ittie bittie kittie comittee", so that stuck. we decided to name each one as well.


Triumph. (the runt)

Vincent. (the biggest)

and Beezer.

bad pic.... Peach Johnson did the coloring on my Amal Monobloc. thanks holmes.
Yup. We be on the INSTAGRAM trend too...
