Halloween @ Speedcult

Got invited by the fine folks at Speedcult to their annual Halloween party.  We assembled a small but dedicated crew for the ride south to the compound. The day started cold and gray but at some point the sun burned through the clouds and cooked us all up to a balmy 51 degrees.  At Speedcult we watched the giant BBQ grille cook dinner, drank various things, rode the infamous roller coaster (no pics!?) and even jumped on a hayride into the haunted apple orchard next door. By the time Terry and I rode home at 2am it was in the thirties. Still had a great ride home and nice night in the woods.  Thanks to the Speedcult crew for all the hospitality!

Rich from Magneato hosted garage night this week.  The weather was perfect with temps near 70 by the time we gathered around the wrenches.  Rich was in the middle of an H2 cafe style build and wanted some input on bodywork.  We tried on half a dozen tanks and tail sections before agreeing it was a tie between a stock but later Kawasaki unit and the original Norton Manx race bred bottle.  Gino added some break lines to the build while the rest of us told lies and emptied glasses.  Later Terry and I rode home in the warm indian summer air beneath an october moon so bright you could kill your lamp and still see every crack in the road.  Total bliss.

Garage Night

I'm loving these weekly gatherings our local crew has mandated.  My little hugger got some attention this past week - nothing serious and nothing certain at this time from a design standpoint, but on it's way and the gears in my head are spinning.
