THURSDAY TIME AGAIN!

Keeping an eye on the skies, let's say Roscoe's at 7:30-8:00 then wrenching after. See you all out there.

MOTARDED!!!


Well I finally went and did it... It took a lot of thought and most of a record collection that took 15 years to build, but I would like to introduce you all to Betty (short for Black Betty of course cause Ram Jam rules!) Dead sexy and super fucking fast, we are in our get to know you phase right now but look forward to many miles and many twisties to come.

60 degrees and dry out! We will be meeting at the Bye and Bye between 7:30 and 8pm come on out and tell everyone (it's gonna be a great night to ride).

Also a big ol' happy birthday to our own Agnes!

See you all out there

SAVE THE DATE

Saturday March 13th calling the troops! We will be heading into the garage at 11am sharp and not leaving until the Yamaha XS 500 cafe is running. Burgers, Dogs, and of course many many beers will be provided. Hope to see you there.

WTF?


Is this shit? Another BAD IDEA that's what.... The CB750 mystery build seen here with a fiberglass airtech tank mocked up on it. Stay tuned...

MAN'S BEST FRIEND...


Is it his dog or his bike? Yeah that's a full size Irish Setter on there.

JOE'S GARAGE

video
So you really have to see it to believe it... Every once in awhile you get treated to something very very cool and last night was one of those times... Joe and his lovely lady Meg invited Agnes and I over for dinner and to check out Joe's Garage, which as you can see is absolutely amazing! Vintage Beemers abound cool stuff covers every square inch of the garage. Thanks to Joe for the invitie and I hope to get the Motothursday crew and the Mototuesday crew together soon.

XS BASKET CASE GOES TO A GOOD HOME

In continuing with the tradition started by Detroit the donor frame and motors for my XS 500 project have been passed on.

They went to Paul who is an accomplished builder here in Portland and I can't wait to see what he does with them, soon we'll have a small army of XS 500 Cafe's terrorizing Portland!

DRY FRIDAY


After the torrential downpour that was Thursday night it was a welcome sign to have a nice dry day not only a dry day, but a beautiful dry day. Great riding lots of bikes out, snapped this quick one out front of Doc Browns.

WRENCHIN' THURSDAY (RAINED OUT)

Despite my best efforts (fist shaking and cursing at the sky) the weather continues to go further and further south. So starting about 9pm we'll be hanging out and wrenching down in the garage give me a call if you want to stop by and if you are out and about tonight ride safe!

Richard-

MOTOTTHURSDAY

It's that time again, see you all at the Bye and Bye around 8pm.

SPEEDO MOUNT

So Agnes's dad and I spent an hour and a half making this sexy little bastard out of a square piece of metal last Sunday, cause I couldn't find the mount anywhere in the garage. It came out pretty good and worked out great. Of course when I moved one of the tool boxes on the work bench the mount fell out from behind it. Figures....

RAT PATROL


Saw this ratted out Suzuki cafe this morning and thought it was pretty cool.

PARTS





Took some shots of the piles of parts in the garage while looking for a speedo mount. These parts go all the way back to my first bike a Yamaha xt250!
