I live at 1 Frozen place in, Minnesota, United States
My real name is Mark. For many years now my wife has called me Mr. Motorcycle. When I started my Blog I was looking for a catchy blog name, so I went with it. I'm happily married and I'm also a father of 6 children. I have two human offspring, one dog, two cats and one custom Harley. I believe that makes 6 children. When I'm not doing my real full time job, or going for a ride, I like to do art, custom paint jobs, and of course BLOG. If you would like to contact me, my e-mail address is phonetically spelled for avoiding spammers. (I actually do use the number 1 in the beginning.) 1mrmotorcycleATgmailDOTcom

The photo above is my ride :
"Kenny" started life as a stock '97, 883 Sportster. It's been a work in progress since the day I bought it many years ago. Its mostly custom with a built, "slightly juiced up" 1200 motor.
The Metal Fabrication, bodywork and custom paint was done by me.

How the Hell did I come up with a name like Kenny for my bike you ask?...... Most people who name their rides, go with chick names. I of course had to be different. I think bikes look tough, cool and masculine; not feminine. Plus, my father "Ken" has helped make me who I am today. Therefore with a little twist on the name, my bike was named "Kenny".

First decent ride of the year. I saw something interesting

I was finally able to get out for a nice long ride yesterday. The weather was beautiful. Bikes were everywhwere. I did not go anywhere special, just rode through Carlos Avery wildlife preserve, and putzed around. One of my riding buddies was doing projects trying to get the house ready for sale, another was getting ready to head out of town, and another didn't anwer his cell. I'm guessing he was out before me, and couldn't hear it over the sounds of the bike. So I went for a solo ride.

I did manage to stop at FatBoys Bar and Grill for a beer.







And then I spotted this thing rolling in.



I'm not going to say good or bad about it, as It is what it is, Just plain interesting.

All in all I had a good day riding. It was nice to be back on the road again.

I have to say that I kinda like it. Not everyone has $20-grand for a Harley so sometimes you just have to make do.

OMG. I can't say I agree with my buddy Dean on this one. I'd rather walk than be seen in public on that thing. I can't believe it would pass a safety inspection. Do they have those in MN? Around here, every cop who saw you would stop you on that pile-o.

I will say one thing - whoever rode in on that is either soft as a grape, or has balls the size of church bells.

Regardless of weather we like it or not, it turns heads. I think that is what he was going for.

Wow, I wonder if there's an angry landscaper out there missing a gas can out of the back of his truck.
