I am

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".

Been gone for awhile

Sorry about my absenteism on my comments last week, but I was on the North Shore on a camping trip with the wife and kids, and no computer service up there.

I brought back some pictures to share.

Looks like a great place to camp. I would love to have a house by that water! Beautiful! I'm glad you had a great Father's Day!

Your off the hook because you apologized. Who do you think you are taking off like that?

Nice picts. Glad to hear you got out there for some R&R. At least I hope is was relaxing. Nice knife, but I wouldn't recommend trying to ride it. Good to have you back.

As you probably noticed, the North Shore is a GREAT place to ride. I live at Split Rock Lighthouse and ride as much as the weather and my job allow. I have found that one of the best bike rides in MN is on Forest Highway 11 from Silver Bay along the North Shore to Hoyt Lakes up on da range. Great photos.

Great pics. No excuses needed for camping out with the family. Glad you had a good time.

Hey al thanks for the welcom back and the comments! I really appreciate all of you!

Ananymous, I also discovered that from 35 North/61 to take Hwy 1 West all the way to Ely, MN is friggin awesome. I was really wishing I had my motorcycle with me but it was cold and raining that day anyway. Will definitely have to go back for that one. It is recently paved, and is like Dragons Tail. It is about 43 miles long, and 85% was windy and up and down!
