Graphite Gem

– marvelous study in pencil of a classic Norton Triumph hybrid. Nice balance of fine detail and faded edges.

Williams Bay WI

Like some desolate sun bleached scene from a Sam Peckinpah film.

Green DeLuxe

Alive & Kickin’!

– more rugged undertakings, as seems to have been the theme this week, with a purposeful alleyway machine. The whiff of green contrasts pleasantly with the gritty red brick wall behind.

No Cars

Modern Take

– cleaner than a clock; a rather splendid oil-in-frame Triumph with ruby tank and polished cases. The light bronze frame is a special touch.

Go for Mud!

Scrambler

– knobbly boots ready to stroll along a country hedgerow. Chasing the hare.

Seventy Two

Off-Road Implement

– woodland warrior, sand dune destroyer, green lane gobbler. A sweet six course meal of a rugged Moto straining at the reins looking for an adventure.

A Lightbulb Moment

[explaining why there’s a light bulb in his mouth] “Oh, the children persuaded me to light up and ride my cycle around, just for old time’s sake.”

Mortician: “We love to watch him ride his motorcycle in the house.”

Gomez: “And wrestle the alligator.”

Thaddeus Logan: “Wrestle… the alligator? A LIVE alligator?”

Gomez: “Not very sporting wrestling a dead one.”

Sixty Three

– I enjoyed the company of this gold colored Buick LeSabre down Lake Shore Drive this morning. Or to give the Highway it’s full new name Jean Baptiste Point DuSable LSD.

Meant

The Braille Trail

The 60’s want your style back!

Revolutionary

– given a chopper treatment. Sissy bar, hard tail, banana seat, peanut tank, through pipes, ape hangers. Make sure your decked out with: your headband, a poncho, tie-dyed shirt, frayed bell-bottomed jeans, moccasins. Peace Love and Understanding!

Rough Roads Only

Growler

– Orange club. Vitamin C. Red ‘n’ Yellow. The perfect color against the grey oily engine and black frame.
