Good morning! Good morning! Its time to rise and shine!

That there's lyrics from a wake up song that we sing to the girls in the am's. When we sing that song, the day almost always ends up being a really good one. Lately, we've been singing that song alot.

As a result, the mornings have been really, really blessedly wonderful. Warm, sunny, inviting for an hour or so tour on the bike[s].

This is one of the reasons why there's been a dearth of updates here. Just having too much fun on the wheels, and keeping very busy in the shop itself.

Enough with the pleasantry's. That's not what you come here for.

First order of business: Singulars! They are indeed finally on the water after a small paint/sticker delay. Its still hard to call it as to when they'll be here. Best I can figure is a week to a week and a half on the water, then a day or three in customs, then two to three days on a truck, then here. I AM having a few air mailed over, but they're for the folks that have been kind enough to put down deposits. Parts for those who've ordered items are starting to flow in. Wheels will be built this week. Cranks will be fondled. Headsets imaginarily adjusted. Life will be good!

Two: Picsures. I like pictures, YOU like pictures. So lets get on with it!

Wonderfull section of trail:
woods trail.

Day two on trail:
5-20 morning ride

Day three on trail:
trail/rock


OH! and one last thing: I've never been much of a moto-head, but I found something this past week that is sending my heart all a flutter. I can SO easily imagine fully and completely enjoying one of these Mac Cafe Racers on the roads around here. 500cc Buell engine, light weight frame. Flat out gorgeous looks. Gotta get over the $16k price barrier though...and that pesky UK thing too.

Listening to: Beastie Boys/Paul's Boutique.....kickin' the gnu k-nowledge!

It sucks that I live in an area of desolation, especially for trail riding. But, then there is the road riding. Small chip rock and oiled roads that are wind swept most days, the other days it is so hot that roads are melted and you get to ride on a nice hot oiled/tar road. The grass, or in this case brush and trees are always greener on the other side of the trail.

I know where a perfect '76 550 SS is with less than 5000 miles. $900. Even with the shown accessories, it could look like that bike for less than $3000. That would be cool.

I believe you have some other motor related pics to post. Ready.....go!
