OK folks, I ain't been here all that long but I been here long enough to see there is a thread missing so here it is an now it's not ;)

Scary DAve here and I am lookin for some able bodied souls who are up for some schedualed and un schedualed rides in and around LA. Ain't gotta bike or a back seat with your name on it? Meet us when we get there! ;)

Also looking to discuss the best places to ride to, good places to hang out, where to go on what night, where to get good new and used parts and so on. I happen to know where to get the best custom seats and leather work ;)

All the kinds of things that effect us riders in the most spread our metropolis in the US should get yacked about right here. (if it's not the biggest just allow me to keep thinkin it is ok ? >:)

Oh and let us not forget a place to occasionaly whine about the cage drivers who just don't get how we have a right to exist in the same world as thier bumpers.

I myself have been riding on the road in lA (well LEGALY) since 1978. My first day in the pouring rain on the way to high school.

I started riding dirt bikes around 1969. I think the first time I ever hit the street with a bike I was around 11 or 12 and I got my first ticket for riding a dirt bike on the street @ 12.

I am on bike #32 now. Can't say how many miles I logged since Lot's of those bikes had broken spedos, or like now, none @ all.

There were years where all I had was a bike and years where I gave them up for wife/kids or what have you. I don't see myself givin them up again any time soon.

Right now I have an uregistered comercial truck I don't drive, a dust covered semi broken car I don't drive and my completely flat blacked out, lowered, chopped and bobbed rat sporty with welded chain for struts and hand tooled, hand laced leatherwork on the seat and tank dash. I ride it rain or shine. Road it through that entire rainy season we all put up with last winter.

It's a great cross between a fast nimble sport bike and a loud, low slung homemade, custom Harley. Great for both catchin eyes and fast paced lane splitting and traffic dodging.

It's one of those bikes that's low slung with a low center of gravity. It's gotta a heavy bottom end makin it stable enough to keep goin straight while barrelin' through the messy LA terain. Still nimble enough to manuver arround the semi sluggish cages and inevitable potholes of LA like a well trained horse cuttin cattle on a range littered with prairie dog towns.

A perfect balance of grace and muscle that's always tellin me if that big hit comes on the freeway I can just jump off of her and grab the offender by the horns and ride it into the ground while she circles to a stop and waits for me to jump back on her and take off again.

I had her almost three feet in the air @ around 85-90 mph and she just flew like an eagle and landed like a gazele.

Ain't my dream bike but she's a good old horse who's doin a good job @ keepin me alive and in the wind. I see myself givin her to my son when he's of age.

So what about you? Whatcha ridin? Where ya goin? When are we gonna ride together? Ya like ridin in groups? Lets form one. Ya like campin? Let's go! Life is racin past us so let's chase it down together!

I'm slammin gears every day. What say you pull on up and we kill some miles together eh?

Ain't gotta bike? Sunthin tells me passengers are gonna be welcome ;)

If ya see me around town (an I ain't hard to spot) honk, wave, scream, whistle or pull up next to me fly that middle finger with a big smile. You ladies are always welcome to find imaginative ways to catch my attn>:) Just look for that gorrila on a black bike with "BROKEN" written across his shoulders.

OK your turn to write! TAG YOUR IT!

Ok you bunch a nutcases! hehehe
Thanks for the comment on the design D.D.

It's good to be back an all. I did go out last night fo ra ride and bar hopped my way across the valley ending up in a burbank place called timmy nolans or nuthin like that. Sure is nice to ride at night.

Went to club bar b q this afternoon. I'll skip identifying the club so as not to ruffle any feathers one way or another. Just a bunch of guys I/we do leather related work for. Was like riding through a damn oven. Lately it's just not worth venturing out in sunlight. I am kinda thinkin bout hittin the road right now cuz it's nice out.

Hmm sunday night ...where could I go an have sum fun ? hehehe

Really need to find an excuse to get together with the LA folks one of these nights. Although I tend to get along better with peopel who are nto from here.

It's startin to look lik emy family is buyin a joint in South Dakota now as well as missoury. Right outside Sturges. I am of course voting a giant YES!!!! Would be very nice to spend some tme there every year without needing a damn hotel room :) I could make a fortune sellin stuff there every year :)

Well what's everyone up to these days?

Dave

You people got a little more enthusiastic than I was expecting ;)

Sorry I had some work to do and work first /write second. I am back for now though :)

So let's see, I am still invited to florida, angel is no wthe daughter of satan which makes sence since he is simply a fallen angel an surely ya can't fault his kid for his mistakes ;)

Debby wants to go campin.

Someone can't fly a jet correctly.

Aparently speeding is now a crime punishable by gattling guns and air to ground missles.

And funchick is well heheh hopefully a fun chick >:)

Thanks to anyone who noticed I was MIA and complained ;)

This eve I went to the usual friday night Burbank Bob's big boy car and bike gathering. I got there a bit late but still saw a couple friends before hittin a bar where my friend works and exercising the flirt muscles.

Fun to hang out in a place where I absolutely and completely do NOT fit in. ehhehe More attn that way ;) hehehe Also keeps me outta trouble women wise ehhehe

Wed night I watched a guy crash his rice rocket when he lost it while doin a wheelie. He fell off the back and the bike took off down the street and found the one and only parked car, a brand new SUV with paper plates, an then hit it and exploded! ehehhe BIG fire ! ehehe

The guy got bretty broken up but aparently he get's to walk again some day so thats all good. I stayed with him an kept him calm till the paramedics got there.

So there is my week in a nutshell ;) Oh an I made this cool BnD collar today I am going to use the pattern to makes some belts :)

So anyone around north hollywood out there? I was thinkin bout goin for a put tommorow.

Norty,
How about the camping idea?

Dave,

I'd love to see you trying to restrain yourself!! roflmao.

Filmore is cool- Leo Carillo is great- Sycamores, tide pooling, Emma Wood is the best, if you have 1 motorhome-a bunch of bikers could come in and share a big spot right on the ocean. How about that? Let's get a bunch of people from all over L.A., Ventura areas and have a weekend of fun. Make Emma Wood our home base and ride all over from there. Up and down the coast, the canyons, campfire on the beach-stars, sound of the waves on the rocks-- I'm getting excited here. Back way to CST on Sunday. Spend the day listening to live music, good BBQ, chattin', then Ojai for dinner and back down the 33 zzzzzip, you're at Emma Wood Beach State Park.
Makes my Irish heart happy just thinking about it.
I'm going to join the local HOG club. This talk is driving me Kurazy....
Now I'm humming the song.....

Oh...-It's midnight-a lot of work to do tomorrow morning-
Night folks
