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".

Skyrocketing gas prices.

Not so funny money.

New U.S. five dollar bill coming soon to a gas station near you.

A buddy of mine e-mailed me this picture. Couldn't pass up the opportunity to share with the blogger world. So fitting to us bikers and non bikers as well.

As much as the very real possibility of this sucks, it won't be as hard on bikers as it is for the cagers. For people who have both long commutes to work and not-so-fuel-efficient vehicles, it'll really be tough.

Something's got to give.

Dean "D-Day" said...

Agreed. Except I don't think that anything's going to give until some of our lawmakers admit that they've steered us down the wrong path as far as gas and energy.

I have nothing to say about this subject except it sucks Arse bigtime!

If they are going to charge this much for gas they better build us an autobahn to make up for it. Funny pict...but not funny at the same time. I don't know whether to laugh or cry man. I honestly feel it's a plot to force consumers to buy more fuel efficient vehicles, thus forcing the automakers to produce more efficient vehicles, thus meeting the mandate to have a certain percentage of fuel efficient car on the road by 2012, thus squashing our reason to be over in the "sandbox". Just sucks that the only way to make this happen is to force the consumer into making the choice, if you call it a choice. You have to admit, consumers are at fault here too and we won't give up the big trucks and four barrel carbs unless we really have no other option. Uncle Sam and the "secret free-mason society" knows what they are doing. Fortunately there is a 100 million gallon ethinol plant being built that will be finished by 2010 that uses any carbon based garbage, such as tires, to create ethinol via microrganisms. Suppose to sell at around a dollar a gallon with virtually no emissions. Can you use that stuff in the bikes? I am going to check that out.

Hows that for 5 bucks. I'll shut up now I'm starting to ramble on now.

"Joker" said...

Hey! Us Freemasons have absolutely nothing to do with the gas prices. If "we" know what we're doing then they haven't shared it with me, that's for sure!

FLHX_Dave said...

lol, I have a friend who is into conspiracy theories and he swears there is a secret organization that controls the world made up of FreeMasons.

Wow, I edumacated myself. I just found out that almost half of the fuel in the country already has ethanol added to it. I didn't know that. HD also recommends the use of E10 for its engines, but no higher. Am I the only one who didn't know this? Feel like I have been under a rock or something.

You guys F'n slay me!

Dean "D-Day" said...

Yes Dave, time to crawl out and throw your 8-tracks away.

FLHX_Dave said...

No way d-day, it's the only copy of Rush-Moving Pictures that I have. (8 track...never understood how someone thinking that it was ok to split a song between the tracks)
