Caroline’s sporty just punched me in the face. A whole shop of people just watched me, and it, topple off the stand. Don’t worry… I broke it’s fall with my face. No damage… and better tie downs now. Won’t be happening again.

That’s what I get for not asking for help- I needed another hand on the shift lever so I could figure out positioning. Instead I carefully leaned over (or so I thought) to twist the bolt by hand and… oh oh oh the bike started to tip and all of a sudden I was falling head first toward the next motorcycle lift. Yes I’m fine, I hit my nose on the other bike, and the Sporty landed on my head. Bruised, probably going to have a shiner, but totally okay.

If any of you ever have anxiety about looking like a fool working on, around, or riding motorcycles.. Just remember this moment and laugh at me.

That is all.

Can’t help but love their interesting bikes, some are pretty wild. She’s got a purple jewel style suicide shifter that sits behind her leg… nuts!

Mitch Sander’s 1966 Triumph Bonneville

A while back (seriously, a while ago) I met Mitch Sander up in Yakima, WA (he now lives in Seattle) through our mutual friend Dave Buchanan (redandblackattack.tumblr.com) and laid eyes on his beautiful Triumph. It’s a garage built 1966 Bonneville hard tail with a modern front end. 

We all sat down and ate burritos and talked about bikes, I picked his brain about his build because dammit… I would so love to ride that thing. It’s classy, functional, sounds awesome, and has history. Read on for my interview with Mitch.

Christmas take two! A box (complete with custom artwork!) arrived from DP Customs today. Box exhaust for the Sportster Build! After seeing this in person at Chopperfest on the Burly Brand bike… I was sold.
