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".

Blog Roll

For those of you who have blog rolls, and have included my blog on your list, I want to say thank you.

For those of you who do, you may have checked my blog to see if you are on mine, only to find out I do not have a blog roll on my site. Sorry.

I have "over" 30 some blogs that get checked on a daily basis in my "Google Reader". The list continually grows. I have a hard time keeping up with reading and commenting on these, let alone maintaining my own blog at times.

I made a conscious decision at one time to remove the blog roll from my site. I did this because, I always felt like I was missing someone who visits my site. Every new comment I get, I read. I don't always respond, due to volume, and my time constraints. Like I said two posts ago, If a new person visits, and leaves me a comment, I'll go check out their profile. If they have a blog, I'll check that out too. If the blog is interesting to me, I'll add it to my Google Reader, and get updates when they do a new post.

I know there are tons more blogs out there that are of interest to me that I cannot posibly read, or give proper credit to on a blog roll, therefore I choose not to have one at all.

I fault no one for having one, and like I said, If my blog is on it, thanks!

I just wanted to clear the air officially as to why you are not on my blog roll. It's because I don't have one, and now you know why.)

I find that I run into the same problem. I regularly read many great blogs about motorcycles every day that aren't listed on my blog roll. It's not meant to intentionally snub anyone but I have hard time keeping up with all the great new ones I find.

Great idea putting a public apology out there. I should probably think about doing the same thing.

Well I'm glad for the ones that do roll. I'd of never found most all of you. I did get in to this from finding Mr. M on the beachcruiser.com.

I don't think an apology is necessary, but thank you for caring enough about our feelings to do it.
I try to add people to my list when we start having a regular communication, but I probably have snubbed someone at some point unintentionally. The blog roll makes it a little bit easier for me to keep track, but I understand why you don't have one. As long as you don't start blocking my comments I'll be happy. :)

I guess this was not meant so much as an apology as an explanation. I just figured since blog rolls came up today on Road Captain USA's blog. that I'd write about why I don't have one. I figured some of you may have wondered why.

Blog Roll - Hard Roll. Sometime you just run out of room. Most of the time I wind up using links off other Blogs anyway.

There is just so much good stuff to read out there.

well worth the read. I found it very informative as I have been researching a lot lately on practical matters such as you talk about…
