Ride goes before the Fall

Yeah, the summer is over and so are the days of a nuclear fireball sun beating down on you, no more heat waves shimmering the tarmac up ahead.
It's getting colder and wetter...and bikes are few and far between on the roads in the Northeast.
But consider this...remember last February? March? You'd be dying for a day with no snow on the roads and temperatures n the 50's...but it's here now, so take advantage. Saddle up!

Movie Night

So my wife was out of town on business last night which gave me a perfect chance to watch some bike videos. I have seen this before however I seemed to like it more last night. The first time I watched it I thought it sucked. Last night however it really seemed like a good flick. I guess if you like watching guys on little bikes act like jackass this is your thing. I give it two thumbs up.

You lose these?

Riding the shovel to work on a lousy wet fall day, I find myself at a red light next to some chump in a Tundra. He's on the phone and he rolls his window up, looking over at me but not making eye contact. He starts inching up, anticipating the green light and I realize this dope intends to get the drop and race me.
The light turns green & he floors it, but by the time I'm in third gear he's behind me &  I give a nice little wave as I pass.
What makes people do this? What's to be gained by playing tough guy behind glass in the comfy confines of your truck? Can you imagine a manhood so diminished that it clings to this kind of fake confrontation as long as his cell & coffee are conveniently at hand?
Next time, do something that shows what's really inside you, because frankly this sort of behavior is about as tough as a Hello Kitty backpack.

Rain Rain Go Away

Well it rained all weekend so Keene was real light with people.

For the Love of Old Shit.

Crap weather took it's toll on the Keene Swap this year with fewer people & vendors set up than usual, but we got to see some friends & rummage through some old greasy bins anyway. This nutty gold Superglide was a standout bike...


Congratulations to the Big D.B. for the feature in Dice and thanks for the plug!

We all start somewhere

This was my 1973 Ironhead I built in 2004. I figured I would start the blog here as this is my first ironhead I owned. My name is Zach and I own a bike shop in Milford NH called Chop Shop Cycles. We do service and build motorcycles.
