Happy New Year!

2012 was a great year for me personally, but was a pretty weak year for this blog. 

Check out the hits breakdown by year:

2012: 87,553 - 2011: 172,045 - 2010: 189,318 - 2009: 235,400

Hopefully 2013 will bring enough quality posts to get back to the glory days of 2009-2011.

Big thanks to all y'all that continue to follow along, and all the best in the new year!

Timerider: The Adventure of Lyle Swann.

I stumbled across this gem while playing with my new Apple TV today. 

It's on Netflix.

I dare you to watch the entire thing.

Helped Diesel tie up some loose ends on his flathead last night. 
It should be back on the road this weekend!

25 in 2012.

If you've been following along, you probably noticed I made some rounds this year. It wasn't my best year by far, but I did manage to scratch a few states off the list. 99% of it was work related stuff that wasn't as fun as it could have been had the Brooklyn Invitational and Born Free shows been involved, but it was better than sitting in the office nonetheless.

I'm supposed to be in Seattle right now, but thanks to the decisions of a co-worker, I'm sitting at my desk instead. That could have been another state off the list. Maybe I'll make it to Washington, Maine, Alaska, and Hawaii next year so I can have all 50 covered.

Minneapolis, Cleveland, Indy, Chicago, and Charlotte are all coming up in January and February, so if you're near any of those cities I'll see ya then!

Left Coast.

new favorite app.

I saw a bunch of rad bikes, and an awful MJ tribute 'busa.

This video has been making its rounds for the last few days, but it's too good not to share.

We had some some unseasonably nice weather this weekend, so I took advantage of it. Rode around the city all afternoon, then went back that evening for the annual Noel Night festivities.
