I am

My photo
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".

Got Snow?

It's been a white wintery not so wunderland here in Minnesota this year, and I know many other places as well.

Matter of fact, this year in Minnesota, we broke the all time record in the month of December for snow fall, and the snow has not stopped yet. It just keeps coming and coming and coming. It's like the Energizer Bunny on Viagra doing porn.

Being an insurance adjuster, I think I've handled more interior water damage claims caused by ice dams due to the repeated large snow falls this year than any other year before. Correction, I know I have.

Mrs. M. refers to this year as "Snowmageddon".

So for me and all of the other snow bound riders out there who won't be riding any time soon, I am posting this to lighten our spirits.

Below is an aerial photo of the average upstate NY & New England commute for folks these days....



O.K. after seeing this, I'm convinced it is not so bad here and I am officially done bitchin about the Minnesota snow....(Maybe).
NOW THAT'S A LOT OF SNOW!

Oh my gawd, that's one shitload of white stuff!
And to think I bitch about our daytime temps plummeting to 18C during our winters in Limpopo!

Holy Cow! I'd like to see the snow plow that made that path!

Your gonna make me feel guilty posting pictures of me riding in the bright sunshine! Stay warm and dry!

In the "misery loves company" category, I'm glad to see I'm not suffering alone.

That's a great photo, except the cars are driving on the left, and I don't know of any country that does that that also gets any accumulation of snow. Photoshop is suspected. :)

That is a lot of white stuff. As for left side...could have been posted backwards.

Gary France said...

That is some snowplow that that cut such straight lines AND make the snow it has plowed disaapear! A good picture though.

IHG said...

Good point there Canajun. It does look a little too perfect and those plow blades would have to be pretty damn huge. I'm suspecting a little photo shop magic too now that I look at it closer. No matter what, a little snow is too much snow!!!

Photoshop or not...I'm cold just looking at it.
