Scratch'n flea's

What a long strange trip it has been..Ever wonder where the years go..Been up and down, good and bad..Did what I have had to do to survive..someplace I got comfortable and enjoyed it then sat back and watched it slip go figure..or don't it must be easier that way..

Sort of hit the not going anyplace a while back..Blame the economy, hell it's worked for thousands..Blame the weather, the dogs the grass growing to fast..hey it was but only under my feet..Riding just hasn't reached out..Not like it always has..Bought a new broke..long story that should be told someday..Started a new dragged..unit has been easy..Lot's of things came together that I either watched fall apart or played a role in..

Stayed busy..did a ton of menial work in the field to avoid doing the work needed to be done to make the real work, work..Strange how your mind can overlook the real issues and work it's way into the stuff that's easy..Well one day the real stuff started I had to catch up...So life is a learning experience and I started something I knew just enough to get my self in trouble with..Well I am now an expert in a field I knew little about..and when being an expert doesn't work I just baffle them with all things work wise have come together..Maybe the ride will follow suit...and someday maybe life will some gears to grind..later.. 

Friday, April 23, 2010 is legal and defining illegal..

Arizona I'm thinking is the place to be..Be a law abiding legal citizen and have legal gun and be free to carry it how ever you encouraged to do so..Hat's off to the the drop in crime when this baby goes into effect..Word of warning..if you aren't willing to use it or don't know how leave it home..

BroBama hit the podium again today..Speaking out against the new legislation reforming illegal immigration..The first state to make it against the law to be in the United state illegally and give police the power to stop and question those who they suspect..Racial profiling?? Is that really something we should be concerned with..I think not..what Brobama and other call misguided is in fact the way it should be..Hey illegal is illegal..but of course the democommies need that voter bases to have any chance at holding offices in the west this kick them out season..I mean voting cycle..Two big F'n stars to you good people of Arizona..let's hope both these laws bleed west..

Don't take my salt...and other rant's..

That's right our next big push is taking away our salt..We can't eat right so Bro Bama has decided for us once again..Hey what's another trillion into saving us from our need to feed..They got our trans-fats...Take our salt..ban our soda's and legalize pot...Once we are all going through withdrawals from losing our salt and soda's..Freaked out from losing our jobs and homes..stoned because we can't take it anymore...Give citizenship to 18 million illegals and bam..a new voter base for the king..and we will be to stoned to care..

And the polls came in..Much to the disliking of the iron hand ruler..Seems like the Tea Party crowd..racist..redneck pigs they were made out to be are educated..far more than 99% of the democommie party..So what happens when the smart people speak out???

Little Miss Palin...has anyone caught on to this..It an act..It's a political pig with lipstick..Heats on in Alaska and she quits..Has a goal and gives a good speech..Until you hear it over and over..We need need a leader not a talker..or a smart this time around..

Nancy Pelosi a true pig with lipstick update..New Taxes..your retirement or market funds..and here is the quote of the day....
This woman is frightening.
  She quotes...' We need to work toward the goal of equalizing income, (didn't Marx say something like this?), in our country and at the same time limiting the amount the rich can invest.'  (I am not rich, are you?)

 When asked how these new tax dollars would be spent, she replied:
'We need to raise the standard of living of our poor, unemployed and minorities. For example, we have an estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in our country who need our help along with millions of unemployed minorities. Stock market windfall profits taxes could go a long way to guarantee these people the standard of living they would like to have as 'Americans'.'  
(Read that quote again and again and let it sink in.)  'Lower your retirement, give it to others who have not worked as you have for it'..

So here's to God, Guns and what's left of the American way..Be proud and loud heard..speak out..

Summer was here for a day..or two..

The first big car show of the year...Nice stuff..better food and some Shovelhead road time to bring the weekend to a close..damn is it Friday yet...

Thursday, April 15, 2010 respects to an old biker..

Lester has been around..wore patches of clubs long forgotten, rode Harley's that would scare most of today's riders to death across the country..Got scares on his face and hands from a day your differences were settled in the parking lot..when all was said and done you shared a beer and it was over..A handshake had meaning..Life was an adventure..

I grew up with his youngest son..They buried Geno 25 years ago..We both still think about him from time to time today..My thrill  in youth was going to Lester's house to spend a Saturday night..when he was home we would sit in the backyard as he was guzzling beer and listen to road stories..Been awhile but still remember a few of the good ones..I still remember how he would laugh and smile as he told them..

Got to go sit in a clubhouse with him a couple of weeks back..Tex-Mex rock blasting..Brothers from miles around paying respects to a man who at 77 can still crank down some throttle and some beer..Didn't get much time to enjoy..He was the man of the night..shared brother hug and a smile..asked him if he had any new stories to tell after all these years..He laughed and told me come by on a Saturday night..You know I'm thinking that is gonna happen..

Thank you Lester for sharing you stories..for teaching the code..for the sons your raised who followed you..I share your losses..Geno and the Chief were true friends..true my friend were an inspiration..teacher and a brother..still are today.. Ride free...

A Bad Ride...ya it happens..

Had plans..good plans..Had to to make a choice business or pleasure..In the attempt to be responsible and forgetting the principles that make us do what we do I made the wrong one..and couldn't stop doing it after..not always by choice but by circumstance..In an attempt to cleanse the mind of stupidity  I went for a ride..didn't start out to be where it ended up but it did..

Mind clearing putt through the desert..plans changed for the better again..OK going to do some miles need a tire and while your at it do the belt..time stopped..I hate being on the shops clock..tick, tick, tick..late in the day I'm riding into the high desert at night..Pulled into the man cave late get some rest and an early start..

Early start pulled into Mojave with the sun sneaking over the horizon..Noticed a little whine down low on the left side..well do I head for Lancaster or keep going the way I should be..decisions have sucked and this one stayed right there..I went east..I hit Barstow and find a little shop,,good dudes and we breakdown the primary..Clutch is ragged and they don't have a car and guessed it to Lancaster and buy extra Ben Franklin and they guys stay and put it this time the reason for the ride was gone..I managed to stay on the I head to Vegas..

Most people go to Vegas for fun..I go to Vegas to hide..Been doing it for years, many, gamble a little and ride..Even the best food had no taste that first night..must of been the bad taste I had forced on myself..Nice room but can't sleep..card table held no relief..I decide to finish the reason other than to prove to myself I could do it..

Amarillo in a day..15 hours as I am rolling into town..mind had been centered on what to do..celebrate I had made it..for what there was no reason to I had lost out..I was only here to make me feel good and it didn't work..Burger King instead of the Big ass room..a few hours of restless sleep and back in the saddle..Back to Vegas..

The Hoover damn didn't bring the normal smile it was just another slab of concrete..The loop through Parump and back down was a blur..the ride home was battle with mother nature..seems battles were the only constant..bad rides happen I can tell you..I am thinking they are self inflicted..In fact I can almost guarantee it..

Time for a Change

As I loaded my 96 Harley T-Shirts, 18 Sweat shirts and leathers, underwear and socks into my big ass charcoal grill this morning I wondered if it is the right thing to do..Switching to propane..Many years of road stories plied high and headed to the dump..The scrape man should be pulling in at anytime to haul those oil leaking beast out of my garage to their final resting place in the boneyard..I ordered me a Goldwing with one of those funky little trailers..don't have an idea what they do but I got one..Got a helmet..full face with bluetooth, wi-fi, stereo, and on shield GPS.. Got the erotic butt message seat to help out on long rides..Trading in my diesel for a Hybrid..buying a condo..and some slacks..maybe even a suit..Oh by the way what is today...:)
