    No, not my moniker but in part my motorcycling lifestyle. :wink:

    Yeah, enough silver finally grew into my hair to coordinate with a bunch of chrome. :brow

    Anybody know where I can get a good deal on some "assless chaps" and a dew rag? :yikes

    So, I'm tooting the renowned Hog Horn and picking this baby up a little after noon tomorrow (Saturday) at the House Of Harley during their big Biketoberfest (12-4pm) if anyone wants to come down and share in the festivities. :choppa

    I have witnessed people shit their pants but rarely seen anyone purposely put shit under their pants just to sit on it!

    Wonderful thing about life, at any time you can choose to "EM BARE ASS" your self, I feel very ill!

    And winter has really not begun, good thing there is no access to Dawson! I am definitely going to get a flu shot this year!

    Well, my new baby's home now, warm and safe in the the garage. :D

    Had a lot of fun picking it up during HOH's Biketoberfest. Great shop bringing a lot of people together.

    Nice video of me riding it out of the shop shot by my brother Corbin. I'm really surprised they trusted me to ride it out through the crowd inside the shop! Tho they did tell me first "no burnouts in the showroom." :lol3 Good times. Mark H.

    Mark, a Jedi's strength flows from the Force. But beware of the dark side. Anger, fear, aggression; the dark side of the Force are they. Easily they flow, quick to join you in a fight. If once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny, consume you it will...

    Did you ask permission before you bought the new bike? Oh, that's right.... you're not married. We need to dig up a wife for this guy! :-)

    I have to say that's one of the nicest looking Harley's I've seen. Enjoy the new ride!

    A co-worker of mine just bought the same bike in a very dark blue/almost black and white paint color scheme. It's very pretty, but I must say that green and black combo is gorgeous. Beautiful bikes they are, if though a bit crazy expensive. Congrats!

    Little wonder that Amarica is in such trouble when even so called sane people are over come by Holly Wood and Barbie and buy into the stupidity of face gloss and the Chinese laugh slyly under their breath. I understand that Griz might be holding workshops pre sturgis stupidity for those that require final counselling.

    [SIZE="3"]COLOR="Yellow"][SIZE="4"]Very nice bike Mark...:eek1:clap.I've drank the HD Kool-Aid three times and each bike was awesome and very enjoyable in it's own way. Miles of style and comfort. Since my standing in ADV world can't be compromised....it's bed rock solid, I'll step out a bit and say my 94 Road King, 2007 Night Train, and my 2008 Street Glides were outstanding bikes. They met expectations because I knew what to expect from them...no more....no less.

    I'm sure I'll have another one some day too. Loss of my HDs were really a result external forces "re-arranging" the fleet , one forecing fuction was the loss of my girlfriend on her HD:cry, and not reflective of any of the bikes shortcomings. I then rode the HD less and it came down to which style of riding do I prefer?.....am I riding solo or with a pillion?....when the moto-calculus was complete, the fleet of 5 bikes changed complexion again.

    08 Kawasaki Connie C-14 Sport Touring - (Trans continental GT, Covers major ground daily):thumb
    08 BMW R1200GS ADV - Adventure Touring:eek1:kurt
    07 KTM 950R Super Enduro - Hard Core Adventure Touring, Baja, or hard core off road:kurt
    03 KTM 625 SXC - Hard Core Off Road big thumpa! Immaculate, fast, dependable and a crazy fast desert sled
    04 BMW K12GT - Sport Touring at it's finest. Transcontinental GT mout gobbles miles and smiles. This beauty "winters" in a heated garage in Santa Fe. awaits my return each year.

    Mark, I had my hopes up that you were being ironic and found a leftover Buell.
    -sigh-
    ...The KLR really was the beginning of the end.

    Way cool, Mark. I'll help you find a doo-rag, but you'll need to find your own scissors for those assless chaps! :puke1
