Just took the last ride of the year on the Green Machine. 14,515 miles have come and gone since I pulled it in the garage a year ago. A lot more quality miles rather than quantity miles this season. Big ups to all of you I met and/or got to see again this year. I look forward to a lot more of it in 2012!

I hopped on a jet plane up to the homeland for a long holiday weekend.
All the modern toys are gone, but pops still has a few vintage sleds in lying around. This one is a 1965 Hus-Ski. It's powered by a 247cc JLO single that put out a whopping 10.4 hp back then, so needless to say it can barely get out of it's own way these days.
The muffler fell off back in '02 when I rode it last, so it's loud as shit, but still fun as can be.
If any of you have one of these motors lying around the parts pile, please let me know. A broken recoil ended the days fun, so I'd like to have it fixed for the next decades ride.

Stopped by this dudes place today to check out a couple of Ducati Brio scooters he had for sale. Turns out he had a helluva lot more than just those. A lot of these models I've only seen in photo's before today. He had 9 others I didn't even photograph.

Dear people in cars,
I know that it's been like zero degrees out for the past month or so, but I still ride my motorbike to work. STOP TRYING TO RUN ME OVER! Also, use your turn signal if you want to change a lane, turn off your fucking brights, and get off the damn phone.
*A near new customer bike (only 437 miles) and rain were added to today's commute to crank up the stress a few more levels.

Jeff was hauling tail down 696 yesterday when his front tire decided it didn't want to have air in it anymore. He use his mad skills to keep it up right for a few lanes to try to pull over before losing it and doing a left side slider into the ditch.
The bikes got some scars, his gear is trash, but he's fine.
Wear your gear people, you never know when your bike will try to kill you!

Man, what a great show!
Only 6 stops left on the tour, so you east coasters still have a chance.
Greensburg, PA on Monday, Buffalo on Tues, Baltimore on Weds, New Haven, CT on Thursday, and Huntington, NY on Friday, and Montclair, NJ on Saturday.
Is Huntington a random stop for a tour??? Seems weird.
