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".

Tough lookin' trike.

I saw the episode on TV where they made this trike. It kicks ass (but it has a turning radius of about 50 feet.)

gotta say I'm sorry to hear that you hate trikes - course I didn't like em till I wasn't well enough to ride on 2

hope you never get sick dood

~I'm just sayin~

Arizona Harley Dude said...

That is a nice looking ride. I will consider a trike setup when I can't hold Petunia up any longer.

Mr. Motorcycle said...

Maybe I should revise my statement to " I hate trikes today". I never used to like Street Glides till I got older either. Hell I never liked Exile Cycles either till the look grew on me. Being a custom painter, I've always liked a perty bike. Exile is raw and tough. Something kinda sexy bout that. People change. Opinions change. Maybe someday mine will too.

Doug said...

Yup, I'd never get on a trike...until I can't hold up a bike anymore. Funny how age and infirmities have a way of humbling us when we least expect it. Eye glasses..then bifocals...softer riding bikes...then come trikes...and then the final frontier: Viagra!

Willy D said...

I hate trikes also. I’ve ridden them before. That’s why I hate them. But that doesn’t mean I won’t ride one if I have to. I hate them, but I hate not riding more.
That is a kool looking ride though.

Pinky said...

Yeah, Baby! Love it!

Steve said...

What a hot looking trike! So simple too! the ones I usually see involve the back end of a VW and look like crap. That is so sweet

Canajun said...

Wow! With no exposed cabling or other unsightly bits hanging off, the bike looks almost like a plastic mock-up and not a real motorcycle at all.
Beautiful work, just don't accidentally lean back and rest your elbow on one of those tires at 100 mph.
And just for the record - I've always liked trikes. Never owned one though.

Tony said...

Very nice.

Gary France said...

I have a great picture of two young ladies sitting on one of these trikes. The women have some great assets and these make it really difficult to realise they are sitting on one of Mr Mitchell’s trikes! Somehow your eyes don’t make it that far down.....!

FLHX_Dave said...

That!.....is a nice trike. I don't mind trikes because I might be riding one someday.

Good thing about trikes is you can have mad sex on it and it won't fall over. Suddenly you like trikes right?

I wanna wheelie that thing!

Lady Ridesalot said...

I think I can ditto most comments here... I'll trike it when I can't hold two up anymore. I just can't imagine not being able to put my knees to the breeze just cause I'm getting older.

Funny thought... we start out on trikes when we're just kids. Go up to two wheels, then four, then back to two again. Seems only right that the trike completes our full circle. LOL!

Mr. Motorcycle said...

What I can't figure out is why so many people think that they will get so old and decrepit someday that they won't be able to hold a bike up anymore. Quite frankly if that is the case, I'm not sure if you are fit to drive a car safely, let alone a three wheeler. I understand a medical injury making you a paraplegic or other special circumstances and then getting a specially rigged three wheeler, but otherwise, no thanks.

Lady Ridesalot said...

Errr... Mr. M... I hate to disagree with you, but I feel there will come a time that I won't have the physical strength to pull a motorcycle upright off the kickstand, and I'm sure that will happen way before I'm incapable of driving. With that being said, I liken riding a trike to driving a car. You sit on it, turn the key, and ride away. I won't need near the physical strength to enjoy the highway miles with the wind in my face during my senior years.

But that's okay... when we are all riding our trikes with our gray hair blowing, we'll ride by your house and wave at ya while your sitting on your porch wishing you were still riding! LOL!

I do mean this in a humorous way. Don't hate me! ;)

Webster World said...

Looks great. I've seen a few of late I like. There may be a day when I will have too. Hope it is long off.

Baron's Life said...

I don't like trikes...might as well be in a Cage...a trike?...common give me a break

Ian said...

I want one of those.... really bad , and i'm sad to hear that you hate trikes

Paul Christopher said...

Hating Trikes is fine as long as you can still ride a 2 wheeler. Most of the trike riders I know, including myself, ride them because it's the only way thy can keep their "knees in the breeze", as they say. I have to tell you, the air in my face feels exactly the same as it did on any regular motorcycle I ever owned.
