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".

Viking Bags... Finally a sweet solo bag for my ride that didn't kill the clean look that I like on my Sporty.

Without hard bags, or standard leather saddle bags, I've always struggled for some storage on my ride. I can't really even strap much to my handle bars because of the position of my speedometer. I've always wanted to maintain a clean look that standard saddle bags just don't accomplish for me. My quest to find a clean look with a little extra storage has finally arrived. I found this sweet solo bag through http://www.motorcyclehouse.com/, which is the parent company for http://www.vikingbags.com/.
The shipping was standard, and my saddle bag arrived quite timely as I had expected. I was able to install the bag in about only 10 minutes tops. This bag has really nice rugged black leather, adequate closure flaps, and has quick easy access clip type buckles that are hidden by the traditional look buckles, which is really a bonus. Best of all , I now have somewhere to put the things that I've always had to leave behind, or put in my pockets weighing me down, and it is really low profile and clean looking. I ask myself, where have you been all my life?!?!

I couldn't be more stoked about this new bag!

To show how low profile and clean looking this is, I've attached a few pictures below of my ride with the new side solo bag installed.
