Our Daily Sled #315

My friend John owns one of my favorite Panheads of all time pictured above. I've drooled over this bike for years now and the more I get to know it the more I admire in it.  It's kinda of a sneaky custom with touches that are so sublime you just take them for granted. Since we all love this bike so much - Ry, Greg and I will be using it as inspiration for our Born Free 6 build.  Much more on that to come...

Thumb Roll

Attica, Melvin, Hog Town, Brown City, Lexington and beyond with some of Dusty and Austin's crew - good folks. If you've never been to see Larry at Hog Town in Melvin make it happen.  You won't be disappointed. Larry has one of the coziest biker bars I've ever rolled to. Will be spending some more time up that way once the weather breaks. Judging from this weeks weather this might have been the last 200 mile run this season...but I hope not.

Fires in the Cold

Last Sunday we planned on taking a ride.  All week the weather apps had been saying the temps would be in the low 50's - they were all wrong.  43 was the air temp when we rolled out. The ride was beautiful though with the severely peaking fall colors - at times it looked like forest fires on the horizon the leaves were so strong. Later in the ride the temp dropped into the 30's so we escaped into a warm pub for some shepherd's pie and hot beverages. Pics are limited because the air temp was so cold Shay's little fingers refused to come out of their gloves and trip the shutter....

THANKS Dave & Jasin!

A huge thank you to Dave Herr and Jasin Phares for the care package I received last night! The intake is beautiful and the old Hydra-Glide document holder is KILLER!!! I opened it up and found the Indiana registration for a 1950 EL!  SO cool.  It will go perfect on Rosemary!  You guys rule. Drinks on me in California....
