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".

Coincidence??? Did "Sam Crow" inspire the name "SAMCRO"?

For those of you who don't watch the television show Son's of Anarchy, here is an explanation of the word SAMCRO. It is an acronym for Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club Redwood Original. This is what they refer to their Motorcycle Club as.

I'm just starting to read the second book in a series of "Prey" novels by John Sandford. The series is fantastic, and has gotten great praise from critics, and readers alike.

The second book is Shadow Prey. I'm just getting started. Then I read this here, and was struck with the question if the writers from the new hit television show Son's of Anarchy ever read the novels, and if they put a play on words, or if this is merely a coincidence.

I've blown this page up into bigger pictures below, so don't try to strain your eyes to read this one.

Things that make you go Hmmm?

There's an awful lot of humming going on around here.
Mr. M, you'll have to give us your take on it after you read this next book. Might it be, that you've stumbled on to something that might keep other SOA fans happy during the show's off season? Hmmmmmm.

Having never seen SOA (yet), I’ve got no idea what you’re talking about. But I’ll keep coming back for the hummmmmmmmmmmming!

Does the SOA theme song sound good humming it?

SAM CROW said...

"SAMCROW" is also an acronym for the "Saints of the Apocalypse Motorcycle Club Reaper Originals Worldwide"
The "S" in the url address stands for "Society". They actually call their center patch Mr. Sam Crow. they dont seem to be an outlaw group either.. seem like a bunch of guys with Irish roots, i.e. the Kelly green, that ride together or know each other very well. Who knows where they got the idea.. the show... coincidence... a book they read.. a movie. Hell who knows and who cares, but they exist. Influence is everywhere!

I looked at that website, and it appears as though the name SAMCRO for the MC is a registered trademarked name. I wonder if SOA got permission to use the name in relation to a MC.

Or could it be in homage to Lee Marvin's gun runner character in "The Comancheros" Sam Crow?

Unknown said...

I understand what SAMCRO stands for and its on the wall of their biker club and on their cuts, but if you notice on the front page of the book that John Teller wrote it says SAM CROW
