When you are Dead, you don't know that you are Dead. It is difficult only for Others.

It is the same when you are Stupid.

I don't do much with a laptop these days, so it's my phone.

It's a pic I took in Times Square with the phone a year or so ago.

This says "in the good ol' summertime" to me:



A couple of my favorite bikes ever:




Some people will tell you that slow is good - and it may be, on some days - but I am here to tell you that fast is better. Being shot out of a cannon will always be better than being squeezed out of a tube. That is why God made fast motorcycles….Hunter S. Thompson

That ninja 250 kit just looks right on there.



I get not knowing, but I can't for the life of me understand not trying. It's only metal it can be fixed. Man up and risk a mistake in exchange for a lesson.

I'm staring at these bikes getting inspired for my XS650 rigid project, trying to sort colors out so I can get the rims and hubs done.











"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."

Wow!! Quite the list there Tim!!  8)



Here are a couple of Canadian Superbike heroes. I love the feeling I get from this. There's kind of a casual tension:





What Superbike fan doesn't know this guy! My reason for liking this pic should be obvious. Lawson tossed this bike around like no other. Just LOOK at the lean angle! Ridiculous!
