Upcoming things to do in 2012

The Dixie Roundup last year was phenomenal.  The guys at Garco. had a great turnout.  The bikes that showed up were killer, and the folks who put it on were more than hospitable.  This year looks like it's going to be a blast with the three days of camping.

I didn't get a chance to go to the first Bama Swap & Drag but heard it was a great event with lots of cool stuff on hand to sort through and plenty of good scores were to be had.  It doesn't look like I'm going to make the second one either due to my work schedule but if you have the time available, don't hesitate to go check this out.  I'm sure you won't be dissapointed.


The Painter's Hideout

This is the OL's spot she has created in our shed to get back in her groove. I can't wait to see what cool stuff comes out of ~T's Shed House!  The girl has mad paint slingin' skills when time is available.

A taste of the South

A little signage from Tampico Bay, my favorite Mexican restaurant.  
They have the world's best Tamales and salsa.

Riser Clamps for the CB 750

Did a little cutting and grinding to make some top clamps for the CB last night.

Below: this is basically what I ended up with.  Need to do a little more smoothing, but nothing serious.

Below: The hunk of junk I started with.  I'm not using the fuse panel or ignition hole so I just decided to cut it all off and save some money.

Below: The tools to get started.  Grinder/ Cutoff wheel, a sawzall, gloves, and beer.

New Year's Ride

Got a couple fellas take a New Year's Eve ride.  The ride was good, went and hung at with a buddy at his bar.  My buddy Luke decided to lose a nut on the side of the road, the big one that keeps his front end from flappin' in the wind and fallin' off.  Had a roadside puff break, Luke road his chopper with the sketchy frontend to the store on the highway where we proceeded to continue to hydrate and tell stories and until his OL came to fetch him.  Then we shot fireworks with the kids.  Hope everyone has a great new year!
