Mr. Motorcycle

I am

My photo
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".

New Speed Control Method?

Speed controls being used in Eastern Canada.
Don't know 'bout you, but it would slow me down! People slow down to try to straddle the pot-holes.
This is actually a speed control devise in use! It is cheaper than cameras, especially when moved around each day.

Look at the poor dude on a motorcycle.
To me, these look like an accident waiting to happen!
I can just imagine how many rear end collisions they have the potential to cause.

Wow...someone has way too much time on their hands! Pretty funny to see in a pic...but I'd be looking to beat someone's ass if they did that for real and I was on my bike. The sudden swerving/braking that would cause would be dangerous for everyone and a death trap for bikers.
Makes me think of that movie where Macaulay Culkin was an evil kid who threw a mannequin off an overpass on to a busy highway causing a multi-car pile up.

That's crazy. It looks like some of our local roads, but our aren't stickers.


It looks funny but so dangerous...

I sure hope the idiot that gave approval is held accountable if someone gets hurt. It might look good on paper, but in use it looks extremely dangerous. Bad idea.

Lady R (Di) said...

Oh no... look out... NOT!
I agree with the other comments... kind of funny, but definitely looks like a dangerous solution.
(wouldn't mind having one of these in front of MY house though. lol)

I'd be freaking out on the city hall's front stoop.

It is good in picture but create trouble. Once rider know about it, they ignore it.
