I know you're out there. When not going up, how do you roll on two wheels?
Any moto-journey-climbin' tales?

What's with the helmet and leather jacket.

Aren't you supposed to be "Bad to the Bone" and free spirit.

No helmet, shirtless with tattoos and sh'it, all hells angels.

Even that poser on that late night show rides a Harley.

What a great topic!

I just wish I hadn't taken adult advice about motorbikes in my teens or I'd have something to say. Maybe Sagot can offer a seasoned opinion...

Custom Sportster '91' Harley...(Was an 883 beefed up to a 1200... Changed heads did NOT "bore it out")

because of my eye problems it's been suggested by my Doctor that I not ride any more...

I am taking that advice and my bike sit's alone in the garage...

Can't get myself to sell it...

Put so much love into that bike...



I'll find a photo and post it later if I can remember...

(might as well, since I am going to sell it anyway)...

Locker if it's paid for don't sell it. Stem cell research may help you out. What do doctors know anyways?

Pud...

Some of those shots were taken out at Willow Springs International Raceway...

For quite a few years I was the "Track Photogrpher" out there...

Bill Huth (I think Stephanie may have taken over for Bill, or maybe her bro) was a very good friend of mine...

Can't count how many times I tore that track up after the races...

Bill and I "WUD" sometimes get HAMMERED and then head out and take a few laps...

A fuking BLAST!!!...

I raced a couple of seasons on the dirt oval out back...

Stock cars...



another BLAST!!!...
