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".

Son's of Anarchy still photos of skidding and not high siding.


Note skidding coming up.

Note stunt rider, not Jax.

How the hell he managed this without High siding, I dunno. I know I couldn't pull it off.
I guess that's shy they used a Pro.

Are you watching the show? I didn't think I would last this long, but I have.

Mr. M,

The reason he doesn't high side is because he never releases the rear brake until the bike stops. Every time I've been pitched over the high side is because I let off the rear brake during the slide side ways. At least that is my experience. What I’m surprised at is he didn’t loose it when the front wheel goes in the dirt. You’ll notice that the bike is completely on the road in the last frame. Ah the magic of the edit room. Maybe the he did loose it in the dirt and that is laying the the cutting room floor. :)

Yeah, I was especially impressed with this scene as well. Didn't know a Harley could do that. I really like the show but they don't show the bikes enough. How come the Myans have the coolest rides? I guess I'm partial to softails with apes.

trt...I think the Mayans have the best scoots too.

I was pretty impressed with this scene...I thought he was going down. :)

KT Did,
Most definitely! Can't wait for tonight's episode!

Fasthair,
I'd be chicken that I'd slide too far, and the bike would end up on top of me. Last time I skidded like this about three years ago, I did high side. (I let off of the brake to avoid the bike ending up on me)The bike ejected me and I flew like Superman. The bike then proceeded to flip like a tumble weed. It was almost a total loss, but the insurance company decided to let me fix it due to the customization and not wanting to do battle with me on it's value.

TRT,
I'd like to see more bikes too, but the show isn't just about riding. That would get old quick, like watching chopper build shows if they had no antics. Hell, even the chopper build shows (with) antics got old. I prefer the black Dynas myself. It's all about personal preference I guess.

Ann,
See above comment about scoots to TRT.
I thought he was going down too. I figured there would be some kind of crash.

Cool skid. Just like I do! LOL! Next I'll be telling ya'll I can do a wheelie using just my toes! Again, LOL! I must be in my "full of it" mood!

Can't wait to see what happens tonight! A-n-t-i-c-i-p-a-t-i-o-n... is making me wait!
