Cafe Racer Ton Up / Down River Cruise

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.

It was about the time that the "pro" wrestling started that we decided to make our exit and head to the Down River cruise.

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.

Windy Interstates call for back roads

Cruised up to Ann Arbor for a bit and then hit up Cafe Racer Ypsi's bike night. It was a nice night for a ride and they were a few neat bikes out there. The coolest being an old flat head. There seems to be a lot of OHP and MSP on the 23, 475 and 75 lately. Stay frosty with that speed out there.
Until next time folks!

Diggers Again Pig Roast

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?


This guy was road captain on the way back from Clam Diggers in Monroe MI. That didn't last to long though.

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.

Detroit Homicide.

The end to a great day.

Nice day for a ride.

Nothing fantastical to report but I will say it's always rad when your rides ends like this.

I'm back like scoliosis

Old Bike "el Bastard"
It has been one hell of a long minute. Well two years to be exact since I was hit and broke my back and beautiful, beautiful bitch bike was nothing more than parts and memories. Well as of Thursday I am back.

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
Then Fab Kevin hits me up with an email telling me he has just picked up two nice Suzuki's and the gears began to turn on a deal.

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.
