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".

Gnats Ass

As quoted by Lady Ridesalot A.K.A. Glider Rider on Thursday Feb. 19th, in her Too close for comfort post..."He just missed hitting the front of my car by a gnat's ass!"

This reminded me of all of the different things we say for terms of measurement.

Just how big of a distance is a gnats ass anyway?

Maybe it's only about 6".

Maybe It's about 1 foot.

Maybe even a foot and a half

Or two feet even!

Nah, I think it's closer measured in.....

No kidding. I was the building maintenance man for a year or so at the regional Girl Scout building. I am working on a ladder and fixing an over head light. The two ladies in the office asked if I was about done. I answered that I just needed to move it about a HAIR. Not thinking much about my answer. And they lit right up about it. They teased me pretty darn good about it pushing me to say it all the way. Oh this old pervert wanted to chime back in but I needed the job and didn't go there. I just did not think they knew. Duh! They were married, like they had never heard it before.

I've been using and wearing out tape measures for years...never saw that particular model! Did a job once with a couple of young kids on the carpenters crew. When discussing some rough-out measurements, I told the kid we'd be alright if he just moved things "just a CH" to the right. The kid looked at me innocent as an orphan and said, "What's a CH?"

The whole job crew in earshot burst into tears laughing. The kid's foreman was an old-timer. I clapped him on the shoulder and said, "I'll let you explain that one to him!"

How’s that cabin fever thing going? Will that tape measure the number of days ‘till the snow goes away?

Webster World said...

Joker I just put my coffee down. That was pretty good. Evan a gnat knows that one.

Mr. Motorcycle... are u serious man?
I speciffically like your picture # 5. As a trained mechanical Engineer, I never knew there was such precise measurements in Grant's anatomy book...but then again...live and learn... I shall check this out next time I have a chance to get a go at it. My inch ruler is safely tucked in my belt...I also keep a feather there for special effects....lolo

Glad you all liked my stupid and twisted sense of humor.

Whenever a gnat lands on my windshield, they seem larger than I thought they were.

Mr. Motorcycle said...


Just a hair larger right!?!
