I shared I-90 with this guy for a while through the Dakotas on the way to Sturgis this year. Loved his bike! Don't know who he is but his bike was a nice change from all the billet barges clogging the slab west. Looks like Ontario plates and he has a couple Bonneville patches on his leather. Anyone have any leads?

Paul Martin on the left is Harley's main graphics guru, pinstriper and resident harp blower. Rich Christoph on the right is the creative noggin behind the Nightster and other recent sportster additions, can party like a viking and makes nice babies. The guy in the middle is late to work most days.

Probably my favorite event at Sturgis this year was the Broken Spoke/Cycle Source Chopper Show. Chris from Cycle Source and the crew at the Broken Spoke made it even better than last year and with attendance up at the rally in general the turn out was HUGE. I have to hand it to those guys because either they are super lucky or someone is doing some heavy editing at the show gate - there were almost no 30K billet barges at the show. Every bike had a story to tell and did it with good taste, nice proportions and good ingredients. It was a very good night for the Bonnepan too - we ended up with the Best Panhead trophy and then The Best of Show honors as well. And honored I was! Thanks all who voted and gave our little salt sled the nod. We will see you all next year!
You guys did it! 3325 miles in 15 days! Actually I never doubted they would make it. These guys along with SloJo and all the other cannonballers are the real deal & we sure are proud of them all!
After Friday nights feature Rosemary decided it was time to get to know her a little better - in a more intimate way if you will. There has always been a lot of electricity between us but that spark failed to occur Friday night so I left her... until Saturday morning when I could chase down what was happening (or not happening rather). That's when, to my surprise, I found this. Greg had been in early that morning...he turned my annoying relay repair into a hoot - thanks my brother! Rosemary now abides.
If you have never seen Roadside Prophets there is a large box unchecked on your data sheet. Our local crew had the chance to see it (many for the first time) under the moon and stars this past weekend thanks to Greg and the gang at MCHD. By any chance do you have a roman candle?

Tonight's feature at the MCHD Drive-In is one of my favorites - Roadside Prophets with John Doe. The crew will be arriving around 7. BBQ is provided - bring your bike, blankets and shine (but keep that stuff low!). BBQ @ 7, movie @ 8. See you there.

30 miles through the D this Saturday. Support the anti-establishment by joining the rally for $35 bucks or you can be anti anti-establishment and wait in a dark alley and roll-in after the gun for free sans helmet. Seriously - it's for a good cause (bike lanes downtown) so don't be a tool. Sign up now! Today is your last chance. http://www.tour-de-troit.org/
