Sunday Swapmeet Sunday!!!

Yup, twas the second to the last motorcycle swap of the season. Got  my pappy out of bed and got there super early. Really didn't NEED anything, but ended up getting some things that I wanted at the price I wanted to pay. There were like 3 or 4 running flatheads, at least one of them was ridden in.... I seen it! There was an especially nice flathead for sale, on a trailer. $18000 would take her home. If I had that much to spend on a motorcycle, it would be on a knucklehead. It was really tempting to try to acquire this fancy riding mower. I didn't even ask how much, just in case he named a price that I thought was fair. One more swap meet this year, might have to get my rusty treasure organized and try to get rid of some things at the next one.

Fall Weather....

Had a busy weekend, in a good way. Had some good company while gettin some work done in the shop. Rode with some good buds and visited some others. Checked out the bike show at Kobi's in Bonner. Got my lady to jump on the bike and rode in the "Bikers for Babies" benefit on Sunday morning. Good friends / family, great weather, motorcycles, and good times.

Greaserama 2012, Boulevard Drive-In, Kansas City, KS. Yup, it rained. The crap weather caused the "Good Guys" show to cancel, but the real people, the ones who really love this stuff and truly appreciate it, came out to Greaserama as if it were 80* and sunny. We even had a good number of bikes. This was my second year volunteering at the show. I consider it a privilege to be able to help out my buds and be a part of something so genuine.
