I bought one of those to make fake-ID's in college, they used to be easy to do (especially if you worked for a lithography company).

Craig McLovin drank a lot of beer before he was 21.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Years ago I finally completed the arduous task of convincing all sides of the family that since I'm "so hard to shop for" it's just better to give me some cash and save yourself the worry. So I'm trying to convince myself not to by a gadget and to save for my next bike. We'll see how it goes... (edit: I did get myself an early present in the form of a Mossberg 500 Home Defense to keep next to the couch while I'm laid up)

In the "what actually matters" department, I'm alive and home to see the looks on the boys' faces when they open the gifts and bounce up and down in excitement. That kind of excitement won't last for too many more years.

You are so right about that. Daughter is almost 18, son is 24. They appreciate the gifts, but not waking me up at 5am screaming that Santa was here anymore. Enjoy it while you can.

Reading the individual stories of those with blessings this time of year is great. Larry, what a relief it has to be to finally have the knee done! Shawn, you are the man for playing getaway driver for Larry! Brandon, I'm so happy you are home to share the blessings of this season with your wife and family. Swing, better get the next show started? And to everyone else who I've had the honor to meet, ride with, or just talk the talk in here with, I pray your individual blessings are great and give you reason to be happy and thankfull.

Me? I'm just happy I got to sleep in instead of trucking off to the gym to keep working on the leg.

Merry Christmas Everyone.

No, they live too far down the road. If there were eggs, she'd make me fry'em up 1st! Funny though, I did share my eggs with her this morning!


The grand daughter, aka, the Makattack will be here around 1pm. We have 2 trees and I put only one gift under the one tree and will be telling her Santa was stingy this year. The other tree has nearly 20 packages for her!

You are blessed to be rich with great friends. Money may be great but friends make you a wealthy man.

My wife says "anyone lucky enough to live by the water is lucky enough".

I say anyone lucky enough to have a good group of guys to ride with is even luckier

Christmas this year left my wife and I with 1-month old, twin grandbabies. A girl, Leah, and a boy, Samuel. Born 4 weeks ago today. I got to see them for the first time last Saturday.

Undescribable, humbling and proud feeling to sit and hold one tiny soul in each of my arms. I was in tears.

When they came home from the hospital they slept together in the same bassinet. After a few days their mother tried putting them in separate bassinets but they cried and wouldn't sleep. They're back in the same bed now....back together........unbelievable how much they need each other even at a just a few days old.

Samuel downs his bottle in a few minutes, Leah, being a lady, takes three times as long to drink the same amount. Samual has tiny little sores on his knuckles because he sucks his fingers and he can pee on the wall from his changing table. He's got more pressure than I do.

I could go on.......







Together we have seven grandchildren now.......I'm gettin' old.


Hope you all have a good year in 2011.

I am parting out a 1997 XR650L if you want to waste any cash on it.

Congrats on the new additions to the family Denny! I have a few years before the grandkids happen, but I'm sure it will be fun to see new generations and have the luxury of knowing they're keeping my daughter up all night and not me!

Guess who had the most fun at our house this morning? She tore right in to her presents, and was happy to help others open theirs.

I celebrated Christmas just like Jesus would want me to, drinking beer and riding around in the snow on nearly bald tires....



It doesn't look as spastic as it was...the rear was basically just flailing around behind me, and I conveniently left out the first couple runs where I biffed several times. Fun, but stupid, and I feel 1000x better with a tiny dose of seat time.

Good thing I'm Jewish 'cause...

...my Xmas 2010 sux. It's normally slow, but the wx is tempting me with blue skies only to turn into low overcast. Wife's sick, so I can't even go out and eat Chinese food. Just working and cleaning. Bah humbug.
