I don't post on here anymore, obviously. The social media machine has taken many forms and consumed most of my free time. I did build a new bike recently though. It's a 1940 UL 74" that I've jokingly called "Clown Town". It wasn't supposed to look like this when I started piecing it together, it was actually supposed to be nice and shiny. When I noticed that I had a matching tin set and a seat to compliment them, I decided to once again go in the crusty direction. Oh well, it worked out better this way. My buddy Adam from River Seat Company surprised me with a pillion pad that matches the original Bates seat perfectly.

I love this photo. I like to imagine in my head that this is how fall is, when in reality I'm bumming about time change and cold weather coming. Oh well, make the most of it.

If you have kept up with this blog over the years, then I don't have to explain Supertrip to you. We did a small one this year, 11 days I think. We wore white to see how dirty we got. We slept in the dirt every night. We went to areas that we have never been to before. We got chased by cops. We had a fucking good time. Here are a few photos that I had on my phone, but I'm usually too busy living the dream on these trips to think about documenting everything.

It's getting close to our 2nd annual swap meet at the shop. The flyer should give you all of the details you need to know. The spots are first come, first served. We didn't run out of space last year, so I wouldn't really worry. Mark your calendars and see you there.

So I finished my bike up enough for Mama Tried. I can't really put it all into words, but I'm pretty pumped. I've been collecting parts and pieces for it for a number of years. So many of my friends helped to make this happen and I am very grateful. 47 motor, fucked bullneck frame, 47 springer old chrome, early axed tank, blah, blah.... I like the way it came together.

We didn't have a plan for New Years. You don't ever want to go to bars for many reasons. Price gouging, girls that can barely walk in heels that are now wasted, cops.... so we just stayed at the shop. Randomly, a lot of our friends from out of town started showing up and it turned into a party. Alan Berg brought his camera and took these.
Derek covers the realms different types of bikes to own.
I don't know these ones.
Meeks spot. If you've ever been to one of those stores that sell Confederate flags, ninja stars, cowboy hats, back scratchers, Chinese finger traps....
This is Carl all the time.
