Been awhile...

Life gets hectic...It's been a good summer & I'm glad it's starting to cool off outside. I've been riding as much as possible. Had a blast at The Fucking Catalina Wine Mixer & the Bastard Bash. I've met a lot of great people & made some good friends as well. We have a great little chopper community going in Alabama & I'm proud of the Inbreds for doing their part. Looking forward to building my Evo Sporty chop this winter & getting some cold weather riding in. I've said it before, I'll try to keep up with the blog, but I ain't promising shit.

I'm back Motherfuckers!

Man life has been hectic lately. Coaching T-Ball, CubScouts, working full time, & just daily life  has kept me from having content for my blog. I really need to make an effort to keep it going. I met up with fellow chopper freaks the Inbreds RC last weekend for a little riding & goodtimes. It was a beautiful weekend & I couldn't have asked for better company. I try to get up to B'Ham as much as possible to visit,but it sure was nice to have the boys come south for a change.
After a few roadside hiccups, we decided to head to our campsite & start cutting loose a bit. The usual happened, Shine' & smokey treats were consumed, the beer started flowing & I decided I didn't want to be completely sunburned so I crept up into the woods to find something to use for poles to put up some shade. The boys seemed eager for me to wander off. When I got back they had a little surprise for me.
That's right, yours truly is the first invited member since the founding of the club. I was so totally surprised I really thought they were putting me on. So I grabbed up the needle & thread Jeff provided & got that patch sewed on with the quickened hand of an old punk who's sewn a thousand patches over the years. I really want to thank my brothers: Jeff, Ian, Ross, Bill, Whitey.....thank y'all very much for having me! We spent the rest of the evening injuring ourselves, losing shit, eating, drinking & being merry. We slept under the stars next to the campfire & enjoyed a greazyspoon breakfast the next morning. I absolutely needed this for my sanity & it's good to be a part of a club that is about the bikes & riding not politics or posing.
All of my pics were on my cell & shitty so I stole these from Jeffs blog What I See. Check it out, he actually keeps it going fairly regular.......unlike mine. See y'all on the road.

One of the many reasons I love the QCB.

A few months back one of our brothers went down in a bad bike accident. Matt's been through hell with surgeries & broken hips & a fucked knee. He is a really great person(as are most of our members) & was dealt a shitty hand. As you could imagine, going from riding everyday to being confined first to a hospital bed then a wheel chair can really take a toll on your spirits. Well, the other guy in the pic Mike made some inquiries to us to see what we would be willing to do. The response was awesome, lots of members gave what they could. So along with many well wishes, today Mike wheeled Matt outside & gave him an aluminum check for $550.....& an engine for his build! We got this engine for him & the cash is what was left over, as you can see he was stoked! The QCB is a family, & this is one of the many reason I love these awesome people!

So far 2013 is kind of a bummer.

I haven't been posting because for some reason, blogger isn't letting me download pics from my computer. I've been sick with the Flu for the last week, which is the worst I can remember in my adult life. I did get my electrical gremlin on my '82 fingered out. It was the Dyna S dying. I threw on a new set of points & vrooma zoom zoom, running like a raped ape again! Work at the motorcycle shop had trickled to almost nothing, not because of a lack of things to work on, but because I'm pretty sure they hired me to get them through the holidays. Well fuck that. I just found out this morning that I got another job working as a mechanic for a golf course. I'll be working on those big fucking crazy mowers with hydraulics and roller blades and shit. Gonna be crazy, better pay & benefits though. Solid hours too. I hear through the grapevine that Dixie Round Up aint happening this year, that was a real bummer to hear. I had a blast last year. But there is another Swap & Drag coming up that I plan on making in March. Anyway, the pic above is my man Mike D's Sex Panther. Too Legit.

2013 is here, big fucking deal.

So it's another year, I'll be turning 37 on Saturday, my chop & my kids have been sick for the last month, Christmas wiped out the savings, & I get to go back to work tomarrow. Whoopee! Seriously though, I had a pretty damn good year. Met some real good people(many of whom will probably end up being friends for life), & had some very good times. The Dixie Round Up was a great start to my year & I'm looking forward to the next one. The Bastard Bash was epic & I don't know how we'll top it this year, but I'm sure we'll try. I missed the BMR(again)& Both Bama Swap & Drags(I WILL make at least one of them this year), but my few outings with the Inbreds were a breath of fresh air
(miss you guys, sorry I haven't made it up in awhile).
This year I'm gonna try to get the '71 all done(at first thought it would be a breeze, life keeps finding a way to make the bike fund shrink), maybe a few small changes to the '82, just finishing stuff really. I'll also be saving for another project, maybe a Shovel or Triumph to chop? Anyway, hopefully this year will be a good one. I hope to see y'all on the road & have a drink & share some stories. Life is just to damned short not to enjoy the little things.
