So I have mentioned that I am on a motorcycle tear, lately...
It is spring time.
I post all manner of chopper pics here, but this is really what is on my mind.
Something with some give.
Something for some miles...
Like trans-continental miles.
This is what I want to build next.
What I want to build right now.
What I want done, right now.
Something that I can toss some bags on and ride to nowhere.
Something that will be alright with my gal on the back.
This bike is it, right here.
This is the shit, you know...
Fuckin' freedom machine, man.

Sorry about that...
Yeah, I was working on another secret launch site...
You know, the whole taking over the world thing.
It is good to have redundant system.
Iceland was going to be part of a tertiary system of bases, with launch capabilities, in covert volcano locations.
While I was clearing some rocks and stuff out, with explosives, to make room for the lair...
Well, I always get mixed up when figuring out how much explosive stuff to use.
I guess I got a bit out of hand.
Anyway, it kinda seems like I should abandon the Iceland project...
Everybody is on to that location now.
World leaders have kept a lock on the story pretty well, so far.
But I know that they know...
And they know that I know that they know.
Scratch the Iceland operation.
That is fine.
The food was crap, there, anyway...

This should clear everything up...
Just take a look at this here diagram, and I think you will clearly understand exactly what I was talking about the other day.
See, there is the thing and the arrows and a human head floating over a pill and a box and the other things and arrows.
Get it now?
It make perfect sense, right?
This and that other thing I was talking about seems like clear proof that I should rule the world.
I mean, it is science...

That is 1971 cool right there.
That is the sort of pic that pops up and makes my head downshift - just to figure out everything I am looking at.
And then, how to possess it.
Similar period pics and a story are right over here...

How is it that I have gotten to be this old but still don't own a copy of Easy Rider?
And how is it that everybody is so fixated on the Captain America bike - but forgets the one that Billy rode?
Shit, this thing is so right on!
I have some serious motorcycle-itis right now.
It is spring.
It comes every year I lack a bike.
I understand that the Captain America sled is iconic and something special...
I get that.
But when I think of building a motorcycle, in my head,it really looks something like Billy's ride...
That thing is so late sixties, LA badass I am beside myself.
It is just far and away better than that flag painted job, by a mile, in style.
Without the front fender bad flame job, of course.
Hell, maybe even with the fender, just to be contrary...
And probably a couple less inches in the forks...
Maybe a slightly taller sissy bar...
And a slight revision in the pipes...
If you give me a Billy bike replica, I will shut up and stop second guessing the whole thing...at least until next winter.
Christ, I even have a suede jacket with fringe, which I promise to wear for the next six months...if you give me a bike similar to this one.
I could use a motorcycle.
Like, now and shit.

Man, I am so old school that I grew up on Mazinger Z...
Had the two foot tall toy dude and everything.
With the jet that came out the head, the rocket launching hand.
The whole deal, man...
So, you can just step off with your Johnny come lately Transformers crap.
Man, Mazinger Z didn't have to hide in no plain sight.
Mazinger Z wouldn't be caught creepin' like that...
No, man, Mazinger Z would just roll up and bust a coupla rockets off.
Yo, I've been down with this mecha-shit since way back in the day-day.

In case you were not aware, it is International Pillow Fight Day today...
And just so we are all clear here...
If you come at me, on the street, and haul back to swing a pillow into my face...
I will fucking cut you.
Unless you have, at some point, slept in the same bed with me...
That, I am totally cool with.
