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".

Military show at Traxlers this last weekend

I went to a military show this last Saturday with my Father inlaw at a gun club called Traxler's in LeCenter, MN.
I knew there would be cannons, mortars, an air show, and battle reinactment. It was really really cool. I took some pictures of all of it, but for brevity, will share with you some of the really cool motorcycles they had for show.

Enjoy.

I wasn't able to get the year of this sweet BMW below, because by the time I had the thought to get it, the bike was gone.









The one below is a 1939 DKW.





And this one is a 1941 BMW.

Great pictures! I love the bikes from the WWII time period. Classic lines yet rugged.

I bet those guys back then must've had hemorrhoids something awful riding those babies on rough terrain. I know from personal experience that the comfort of the soldier is not at all a priority of the US Army. I'd imagine Nazi Germany was no different.

Really cool to look at though, great photos.

I love those bikes. Thanks for the pictures.

Lot's of history in those fine machines. I'm with Joker, I can't imagine how good your butt would feel after a few miles on those! I can guarantee you, the Army was not concerned about comfort. Looks like you had a pretty cool afternoon.

I have a real soft spot for military versions of bikes. I can just see myself out in rush hour traffic...taking out side mirrors, flattening tires, blowing out back windows with the .30 cal. ahhhhhh...thanks for the moment of bliss. Can you see me know a-hole!

Mr. Motorcycle said...

Dave,

If you are in the side car with the gun, Can I drive? Can I - Can I - Can I?

Oh sorry, I must wake up from my fantasy land now and get back to work.
