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".

Tattoo Birthday for my "SON" David Harley

Ever heard the old adage, Like Father Like Son? Well this one fits the bill.
My Son, David Harley (Yes, I really named him that.) has wanted a tattoo(s) since he was about 8 years old. He knew that waiting until he turned 18 was the only way it was going to happen. His time finally came. The session was not on his birthday, due to other commitments , but shortly afterward. I set up a session with a tattoo artist I've used in the past and have been very happy with. Neil Reitan from Tattoo Asylum hooked us up for a two person session back to back, or should I say shoulder to arm. We got a Father Son, Harley tattoo for his 18th birthday. This is something I'll remember for the rest of my life. I think he will too.

By the tattoo virgins choice, I went first.
Here was my sit in .

Best for last, what this is really all about...
My Son's birthday present, and first tattoo.
His namesake fulfilled in ink forever.

David, B.T.W. Your tattoo turned out sick!
It was really cool being a part of this with you.
It was a day I'll remember forever.
Happy Birthday Kiddo!

Learning to Golf said...

OK, he has the tat.. when is taking the ride for a spin? Congratulations for raising an 18 year old who still want to hang out with the 'Old Man.'

Canajun said...

Happy Birthday! And what a great way to celebrate an important milestone like turning 18.

Willy D said...

So dad, you buying him a bike also? Seems like the thing to do.

Webster World said...

Happy B to David. Raised him right. He waited til 18. Great tat's.

IHG said...

Best kinda Tat you can get! Happy Bday to David Harley!

Mr. Motorcycle said...

Thank you!

Dean "D-Day",
Thanks! It's nice to be back too.

He can take the ride for a spin when he buys one. I'd prefer he learn on a less expensive bike.
Thanks for the compliment. It is cool that we get along, even though we don't always see eye to eye.

Thank you!. It was a great milestone celebration.

Willy D,
Nope. Already struggling to buy the car for him to get to college.
I would though if I had the dough.

Webster World,
Thanks Man

Thank you! I'll tell him he is getting happy B-day wishes on my blog too.

That's awesome! I'm glad you got to have this with your son.

Mr. Motorcycle said...

Thanks! It was most awesome doing this with the kid.

FLHX_Dave said...

Man, I wish my Dad would have taken me to get my tat. All he would have said is, "Hell no son! I'm not going to hell with you. How can you defile your temple!"

You know what? This will be a lifetime memory. I have a bunch of additions I want to do myself...now just need to find the money to do it!

Happy B-Day!

Mr. Motorcycle said...

FLHX Dave,

Thanks, It will be a lifetime memory. Regarding the money, Yeah, It was a financial sacrifice. But something I really wanted to do with him. I had to dig deep to make it happen. I even dug into my own personal fun money stash to help support the cause. I guess that's only fair though since I got inked too.

WooleyBugger said...

Man that is a real memory maker there. I mean, how many father sons do this at the same time. It's sorta a birthday present for the both of you. Happy Birthday to David.
