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".

Riding weather

Life's been busy lately. Lack of time to do much but work. Weekends always seem to be too short. I even have a hard time keeping up with SOA. I watch it, but find little time to really sit down and write something that will do the last episode justice. I will. Soon. I promise. I just need more time. I should have taken the time to do so yesterday, but instead hopped on my bike for ride with a couple of friends to go leaf peeping. Boy was it a splendid afternoon. I was in such a rush to get out there and enjoy one of the last really nice weekend days of the season that I didn't even remember to bring my camera. I'm hoping for some of those Indian summer days coming soon where I can take advantage, and get out a few more times yet this season for rides that last more than 15 minutes. Fall is my favorite season, and to me the best riding weather. Can't beat the scenery and the mild temps. It's one of the few times where you can be suited up with the proper safety riding gear and feel comfortable temperature wise. I led the ride on some of my most favorite twisty back road routes that I know. Yesterday, we rode almost nonstop for about 5 hours and only put on about 150 miles. You do the math. That's a lot of twisties.
Hope you all had a great weekend. I'll post my SOA review soon.

Lots of twisties is a good thing. Glad to hear you had a good ride.

Glad you got out for a good ride. Weekends are always too short and there is never enough time, but we just need to make sure we make the time count when we can!

Sounds like something I could've written myself. Screw the SOA review...get out and ride. The TV ain't going anywhere, but the nice weekends are - AWAY.
Yes, it is great to be all geared up and comfortable at the same time, and with the foliage, it's primo riding at its best. Sounds like heaven to me. This past weekend it actually SNOWED on Sunday, which is very unusual for mid-October. Just a reminder of how little time some of us have left.

Now for the obligatory rub-it-in comments from the AZ, Cali and Deep South friends of ours!

Well...I'm with Joker. F' that SOA and get out.

Besides, I wanna read about your rides more than anything. The rest of it? Save that for when the white stuff is killing you softly bro.

"Killing me softly with the snow, killing me softly....with the snow, f'in my sweet runs with black ice...killing me softly, with the snnnooooooow."

eh, I'm so messed up right now. lol

Canajun said...

Unlike Joker, we haven't had snow yet - perhaps this weekend according to the weather guys. But ever the optimist I'm still hoping for a few Indian Summer days when you can ride without having to dress up like the Michelin man in 15 layers of everything!

And I know it's a bit rub-it-in from our southern riding friends, but it's nice to know not everyone has to hibernate for 5 months of the year. Live vicariously I say.

Thank you

You got your priorities straight Girl!

Harley Davidson's quote: Screw It Let's Ride" comes to mind here.
An Oh yeah, let the comments about I ride 365 days a year begin. I can just about hear it coming soon. Let's see them post fall pictures of color of their own.

FLHX Dave,
LOL! I Believe Harley Davidson's quote "Screw You" -Er I mean "Screw It Let's Ride" comes to mind here. LOL!

I has snowed, rained, or has just been plain too cold here 5 out of 7 days since October 9th.
