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".

2008 Fall Flood Run Pictures

The 2008 Fall Flood Run benefiting the Gillette Children's Hospital was a huge success. The beautiful weather brought out a gazillion bikes.
The early fall weather was absolutely gorgeous. It was in the mid to high seventies by afternoon, and that's all the hotter it got. We biker's couldn't have asked for a better day for riding. As you can see the fall colors are just starting. It made for some spectacular scenery. You should see these areas in about a month or so when all the fall colors are in complete bloom. It is amazing!
Anyway, I'll let the pictures do the rest of the talking as for how great of a day this was.

I love it when the leaves start turning. We will be a few more weeks before we see any thing change. We are still having high 80's everyday and it's not dropping enough at night yet.
Looks like you had a nice ride and it always nice when the weather is great too!

Dean "D-Day" and B.B. and Bcarter,
Thanks It was a great day! I just wish the long all day rides weren't so few and far between for me.

FLHX_Dave,
I"ll be sure to take more fall color pics when they really come out. Summer all year to me, just means a lot of hot weather, vs. cold weather. Neither are fun to ride in if you ask me. I like the moderate temps. Wish I could have them all year round.

I kind of like that bitchin bike on the roadside myself. Thanks!

Lady Ridesalot,
Fall is my favorite time of year. We have the mild perfect riding temps, and the fall colors are spectacular! You'll get yours soon! Too bad fall is followed by winter. Oh, well, will have to go snowmobiling!

Great ride I'll bet. You need to let the guy on the black bike his plate is not legal.lol

Mr. Motorcycle said...

Webster World,

I'll be sure and let him know. Last I heard, He was working on it.

Besides, I, I mean He was riding it in Wisconsin, not Minnesota for most of that day! LOL!

Those are GREAT pictures!! I don't think we will be able to ride this weekend because there is no gas in the ATL.

Mr. Motorcycle said...

Marcie,
Sorry to hear about no riding!
That no gas thing really stinks!
I can't fathom no gas! I also can't imagine what it will cost for the few gallons you can get?!?
