More Content Than Time

I've taken a couple of trips and have been hitting a lot of shows this year, which has been great, but I am way behind on posting photos from all of them.  If you didn't know, this blog is a one-man operation and, with two little kids, I don't have much spare time.  The good news is that I should have plenty of content to keep the blog fresh through winter.

Blog post series to come (eventually):
  • Winter: Rear fender mounting, painting, and bracket fabrication
  • March: Harley Davidson Museum
  • March: Donnie Smith Show (pictured)
  • May: Rockers Spring Social
  • May: Moto-fishing-camping trip to Black Hills, SD
  • July: Bearded Lady Motorcycle Freakshow
  • August: Chariots of the Gods
  • August: Spare Arts Bike Show
  • September: First Thursday / Moto Mania
  • September: Konawerks Bike Show
  • All the upcoming stuff I haven't attended or done yet.

Hopefully, you've already figured out that you can stay current with me on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter (Instagram being my personal favorite) but I'll always post the majority of photos and detailed write-ups right here on the blog.  It just might take me a few months to do it.

2014 Rad's Extra Sharp Motorcycle Show - Part 3

My favorite bike at Rad's Extra Sharp Motorcycle Show was this one.  It was completely over the top and loaded with details from the meticulously painted frame to the insane intake and exhaust.  The seat reminds me of a chair my parents had back when I was a kid.

2014 Rad's Extra Sharp Motorcycle Show - Part 2

Even though it's a relatively small show, there are always a lot of cool bikes, cars, and trucks that show up.

Back to the bikes...  Here's an evo, a shovelhead, a panhead, a flathead, and even a panshovel!

I'm saving my favorite for last.  Check back tomorrow.

2014 Rad's Extra Sharp Motorcycle Show - Part 1

The 5th Annual Rad's Extra Sharp Motorcycle Show was held yesterday at the Bass Lake Cheese Factory in Somerset, WI.  It was my 4th consecutive year attending the show and I really like this one because I usually bring the family (they follow in the car).  Also, what's not to like about the combination of cheese, beer, and motorcycles?  It was a chilly morning but the sun was shining and it warmed up in the afternoon.

I rode my Sportster and was bummed that I couldn't enter it in the show as it didn't fit in ANY of the available categories.  In each of the previous 3 years, I entered and won trophies in the Sportster and Mild H-D classes (whichever was available).  My rear fender section is much-improved over last year.  Would I have taken home a 4th trophy?  We'll never know.

If there was a Sportster category, Kevin's and Ryan's could have given me a run.

Kevin's new blue tank looks great and his bike has a great lean.

The tank Spencer hand painted looks awesome on Ryan's.

Here's a shot of Kevin, Ryan, and one of the two Corys leaving.

This panhead belongs to the other Cory.  I met him on the Ride for Larry Pierce.  The Yamaha is his friend's.  They were camping in case you're curious where all the mud came from.

More bikes and a few 4-wheeled vehicles are next!

Scooter Trash 4 - September 27th

Scooter Trash 4 was just announced and will take place on September 27th at Venue 13 in Burnsville.  The event is organized by Pearson Customs.

I went last year and even though the rain sucked, there was still a good crowd and Brett's burnout all the way down to the rim was amazing.  Click here for pics.

Graffiti Series Part 22 - Shark Bait

On my way to First Thursday / Moto Mania, I stopped at the Intermedia Arts building and there were some new murals outside.  The art changes often so I can only imagine how thick the paint is on these walls.
