 Shots were taken when I was on my way home from Lake Elsinore. Inflating your tires (my truck tire to 40psi) will increase your mpg. My truck is little and only 55 hp but its good reliable worker. (I think I'm going to keep it and take it off of Craigslist.)
That's my "new to me" bike in the truck bed. It's a xv250, and people actually make choppers out of 'em too. It's tempting, but I'm going to keep it fairly stock. I need to find some drag pipes for it, bike is running to quiet, that's dangerous. Anyway, it gets ~83mpg!

Get around...

on a moped.
This is my 1979 Puch Maxi N. It has an old Gila kit with after market pipe. Super fun to ride and hauls for an old kitted moped. It still needs a little fine tuning, running a tiny bit rich. 
Well, there is a MB race this weekend in Apple Valley (4-13). Looking forward to running it on the track! I'm still learning how to ride and race so these events makes for good practice (A moped rally is too, but not as safe, you have to worry about cars and stuff).  
Going to be camping there too. Stay tuned for pictures of the event...

VW bus

It was about a month ago that this picture was taken. There were plenty of vans, but for some reason I only took one picture. I like its aged  look and low stance. The color is nice too.

My new daily ride

A used 24" Sun Retro cruiser. I tooks parts from another bike to make it look like this. Its all used stuff. Left over parts were given away. (Its a good feeling to let stuff go) It rides real nice too. My favorite thing on the bike bike is the $1.50 cup holder! This is all you need to get around in Long Beach.

An avenue of fun:

drove down to dago last weekend to drop some stuff off, hang out with friends and ride in a moped rally.
In many ways, lots more fun than a motorcycle. It's gnarly taking a 49cc-80cc mopeds to 50+ mph speeds.
Im looking forward to the next ride.

I dig a lot of things mechanical and find peace on machine made by the human condition. With these tangible machines I meet awesome folks. These folks, I hope consider me as a friend too. Here's an infinite cheer to my mechanical friends.
Photo: was taken in the high desert at a friends shop. (Super cool dude) I brought my BSA up to make some adustments and in the process learned a bunch of stuff. I am now super stoked on the bike and want to take it further and make it my own. I hope to make it run great and still commute with it...there is something mysterious about riding a contraption that was designed in the 40's or 50's then chopped in the 70's...
my bike is in the foreground.

-mopeds are fun- see you at the next rally

meet Jumpy. chicken  (other rabbit) and him made a tree cave. they like to hang out near my chopper. funny thing, they sometimes get all greasy from running under and around the motorcycle. they like to hang out outside... when i'm not outside, they would come inside and ask me to go outside to just hang with them. it's funny how they communicate. they would do a helacopter bunny hop when they are happy and pleased. then   hop over to me nudge and lick me to give tanks. its a trip...
