coming up on the end of an era....

Ok, an era makes it sound like a long time, but trust me, 3years in Kansas feels more like a 10year prison sentence..... Allright, maybe not that bad, but not that great either. Today I have to do a presentation on my senior project that I've been working on for the last year, next week is the deadline on paperwork, and after that, finals week. Talk about high stress levels. But on the bright side, it's all downhill after that. No more pencils, no more books! No more teachers, dirty looks!

yup, it's almost that time again....

sliding door out back with a fold down deck- what more do you need?

 so wanna build this bike.....
and so wanna take it here.

Kev, I still think you should build your pan this way.

Grandma, exploder of brains.

If you're tired of seeing this one posted here, you obviously don't belong here.
Flashback Friday.... do those even exist in the blogosphere?
Kev, way off in outer space somewhere, en route to California...
...where we finally landed at Born Free 2, packed to the gills.

...we literally rolled into the show to the as the winners were being announced, almost exactly how Kev and I had joked that our Born Fred experience would be. That's Joe's CB750 on the left side of the pic, packed down as well.

yea, well, sue me.

Yea, sure, the car posts have been thick around here with the chopper posts very thin, but hey- I'm stuck in the middle of nowhere Kansas till May, my chopper is waiting for me in Florida with a blown oil pump, and my soon to be daily driver is almost ready for a license plate. Don't worry, I still love choppers, but I'm a man of many different tastes. Just cause I put the Temptations on the player, doesn't mean I don't love Black Sabbath anymore. Besides, you guys love anything period correct, especially when it comes to old photos so sit down, fire up the yesca, and let em soak in.
