Donito and myself met up to catch what was left of Cafe Racer's, Ton Up in Ypsilanti. What we saw was pretty cool. Typical Ducati and Thruxton's. I didn't get pics but there was a few cool and original Jap bikes.
Ok, so one thing that I realized is that one place that isnt designed
for people who have been in violent / back breaking collisions is a road
of bumper to bumper traffic with high power machine revving and wildly
burning out their machine to the point of losing control all while being
feet from your rear wheel.
It was cool to see the cars though. A bit disappointed there were not
more bikes out there but then again maybe they were smarter than me.
Hopefully I can make it out to Bike Days Wauseon on the 20th. Anyone want to meet up and ride out?
Till next time chumps.

Rode with 90+ people I didn't know yesterday. Well I knew 3 of them but the point is, there was not one unfriendly person, no cold shoulders or attitudes.
I normally dont care to ride in large, groups. Partly due to how people ride in large groups. Partly to the fact there is some douchery involved in large groups. This was not the case. Everyone was there for the ride and fellowship. It was a great day and I enjoyed meeting all the people that came out.
I feel this is the way people should be on a daily basis. Not just on a bike run. Maybe everyone should ride on two wheels?

|Waiting for the trailer as this old Shovel lost oil pressure and gave those behind a nice fossil fuel bath.|
|My old four banger ran like a top.|
|Brandon finished up the day bummed out the old shovel needs a rebuild. Hopefully it's just the oil pump.|
|The end to a great day.|

|Old Bike "el Bastard"|
|Current build 91' FXRT cut down and rolling my TP107" out of the bastard.|
Been working on an FXR but as any of you who have full time jobs that does not include being in a garage all day can attest; it's a bitch trying to finish a bike with very little time available. Add to that kids and freelance work, well you get the picture. I am just a lazy bastard.
I did buy a KZ1000 do bomb around on but honestly it turned into another project. I really really really didnt want another project. I wanted to get on a bike and go. For cheap.
|What has now morphed into a KZ Cafe Project|
Needless to say I am back in the saddle again. I am putting on some miles tomorrow around the Irish Hills. If you see me bombing the around please duck because hard ons will be had. It's been two years.
Very excited to be back, even more excited to be contributing.
