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".

Motorcyclist dies in Utah speed record attempt

Passing on some sad news that I read at Keep the Rubber Side Down.

Last Thursday, Cliff Gullett was trying to set a new two stroke motorcycle land speed record on the salt flats of Bonneville. He was going 237 MPH (385 kilometers per hour) when he crashed and died.

As I posted on Biker Chickz Blog, at least the guy was doing what he loved when it was time.

Dave,
I can't even imagine wiping out at that speed.

Ann said...

At that speed, it must have been over for him pretty quickly. No time to react. My thoughts go out to his family.

As I have said many times, There's only two ways I want to go.
And mama say's the first would traumatize her. so I geuss it will have to be on a bike.
