    when i look at that guy, I think there is a guy who loves motorcycling … not the aura of being a “badass” like so many tool’s out there do. thats a guy I would buy a few rounds for and listen to his story. looks like someone who genuinely riding cause thats what he loves to do…. ok enough with my art critics veiw…..

    When I was a youn man I rode Shovels and weirdly enough my beard had a red tinge
    but my leathers were well worn and scuffed from falling off and having to
    sleep in it at times…in strange places…with deranged folk ( unhinged)
    But my bike was imaculate

    Shiny Jacket,…rusty bike.

    Wrong priorities I say….wrong priorities…

    Bloody youth of today …lol

    @James, I hear you man, though I have to admit, I’m one of the bloody youth that doesn’t keep er’ clean. A dirty bike doesn’t make it any slower (okay, you can probably make a physics argument here that says I’m wrong, but you get the point). As long as the inside of the engine is clean and the tires and brakes aren’t goobered up with oil, I say “let’s ride.”

    Now I’m feeling guilty about being part of the consumer class of America that has gotten used to disposable (aka replaceable) goods and doesn’t take care of things the way my grandfather did who lived a life of scarcity. I have almost zero disposable income, but I don’t worry about having to replace my handlebars in 20 years when they’ve deteriorated due to my neglect. Buy another set and bolt them on.

    Dang, putting this in writing has suddenly resulted in some soul searching about my consumer habits.

    Forget it, I’m going for a ride on my dirty beast.

    Wow Cyril, a moment of deep introspection caused by a photo of some stranger on a Shovel. Your powers are amazing!

    Well Chris,
    Introspection is good, hell I did’nt know you young ‘uns could read !
    yet alone get to three syllables…..lol

    Young people on bikes are great ,cause we are in the age of the Dinosaur.
    I doubt you ride a Shovel. But if you do, thats even better.
    Used to clean it allot to see what had fallen off and what had to be fixed.
    Plus every cent I had was in my bikes…..

    Also lived in the time over here of true grunge…
    We looked abominal, filthy ,dirty ,German helmets, mirror shades.True insanity..
    Ridgeys which were 2 to three pairs of jeans that were rotting into each other
    Covered in oil and bodily fluids of interesting and unusal genetic make up.
    Semi water repellent and unwashable.
    Shiny bikes and scumy riders…freak the straights..and why not

    Thanks Chris for making me retrospective….lol
    Your cool

    Staged, his hands are gritty looking but his face is as clean a Richey Cunningham’s.

    Whats the funny yellow tube on the brake for?

  12. 12 Chris Oct 11th, 2013 at 9:38 am

    Maybe he didn’t use his face to change his oil.

    A man on a mission. Bet the hat doesn’t make a mile. ..Z

    It’s a shame that bike isn’t chromed out.
