easyriders show...

headed to the easyriders bike show in charlotte this weekend… compared to previous years, looks like attendance and vendors were down. although it could have been due to it being sunday. there was still plenty to see and check out…

top on my list this year was to see mushu suzie from widowmaker cdr. as always, i wasn’t disappointed… there’s something about a stripped down industrial design that grabs me. i love the looks and innovations on this bike.







something else that caught my attention was this motorcycle hammock from wiskybilt... it's all bolt on, no welding. breaks down into a pouch that will fit in a saddle bag. bet it would come in handy on some cross-country trips.


then is was on to the rest of the show... mike and angie from full throttle saloon were there...



some other bikes that caught my attention...




the trend in baggers these days seems to be large front tires. i didn't get  any more pictures, but almost every bagger i saw had this huge front tire...




and the little man high-fiving the geico lizard...

43647

yikes!! i knew i didn’t put many miles on the bike last year, but didn’t realize it was just over 2500 miles…

had some extenuating circumstances that didn’t lend themselves to riding as much as i normally would have liked. i’m not complaining, though. and in hindsight, i didn’t really miss the riding because my attention was turned to more important things.

now it looks like things are back on track and it’s time to look forward. so many rides, so little time. some of the choices on the horizon (although i know i won’t be able to do them all!!): smoke out, blue ridge parkway, cape fear 1000, smoke chasing gt, waffle house gt to mention only a few. would also like to throw in a trip or two (or many) with my wife. and rides around with my son…  and at least one iba ride.

so with all the opportunities out there, i’m just going to take it day-by-day and see what unfolds.

let’s ride!!
