I keep promising a comeback.....

....and every time, it's usually one post followed by at least six months of inactivity. Normally I wouldn't apologize, but if you are out there and you still check this place in hopes that something happens, the least I can do is say sorry. Life happens. And since nearly every one has deserted the blogosphere, it makes it tough to even want to bother to come here and post anything. But I think i've come to the end of my rope. I can't do this chopper scene anymore. It's exhaustingly ridiculous. Every bike looks the same, every "chopper dude" looks the same, and nearly every chopper show is currently sponsored by the company that we all used to hate. WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?!?! 5 years ago we were all flipping our patches and flipping the bird  to the company that turned their backs on us so long ago. So what did they do? Waved a bunch of free Oak Leaf logo t-shirts in front of show organizers  and put a bunch of big time chopper dudes in their ads and suddenly they weaseled their way back into the scene. I'm sorry, but I can't get behind it. It's nothing more than a marketing scheme and you all fell for it. They're exploiting all of you in commercials and advertisements in order to sell overpriced piles of shit, all the while still giving you a huge middle finger every time you walk up to the parts counter looking for replacement parts. It's a joke, and you all made yourself the butt of it.

As for all you period correct dorks, you already know how I feel. If your bike never leaves its own zip code, I got nothing for you. Sell it, you missed the whole point.

Sure I sound preachy. Sure I'm on a soapbox. But if I don't say it, none of you will. The whole scene is crap and "frankly my dear, I don't give a damn." Like I always tell kev, the scene may burn to the ground, I'll still be riding my chopper coast to coast while all the "zip coders" sell their choppers for low riders, speedboats, or whatever trend is the new thing.

So, with all that being said, check back here. I'm over Instagram and am gonna make an honest attempt to update this page more often. Living in Palm Beach county Florida means chopper sightings are rare, but theirs plenty of other good stuff to show. OH! And if you enjoyed our  California trip coverage nearly six years ago, stay tuned. Kev and I are setting our sights on the 100th annual Pikes Peak and then riding to the Redwood Forrest and down the illustrious PCH. Born Fee? Nah. We were there when it WAS ACTUALLY FREE!! I refuse to pay $35 admission to be inundated with Vans and Harley advertisements.

Thanks for watching. Sorry no pictures. My computer finally kicked the bucket and I'm writing this from my mom's iPad. So chopper tough.

Monkeying around in the snow

After watching Flat Out Friday live streaming last night, I think I was inspired to get outside and ride.  I carved a track in the backyard with my snowthrower, put my studded tire on the Evil Monkey, and had a blast.  My daughter took the riding photos.

Mama Tried 2018 - Part 8

The Mama Tried Motorcycle Show isn't just a bike show, it's a full weekend experience.  When you consider the show itself, Flat Out Friday, a visit to the Harley-Davidson Museum, multiple concerts, and ice riding on Slippery Sunday (weather permitting... and it did not cooperate last year), you really can't ask for more.  I'm bummed I'm missing it this year but I hope everyone that attends has a blast.  The last few years will be hard to beat, but the show seems to get better every year.  Have fun everyone!  I'll leave you with some photos of One (Metallica tribute) and Weedeater at last year's show.

These guys were so good.

Pushin' and shovin' in the pit (Rave security was not amused):

Weedeater was fun to photograph.  The facial expressions are fantastic.

Bottle's empty?  Show's over.

Have fun at Mama Tried this weekend!!!
