S&S 50 Anniversary Bike Build Off and Weekend!

So, I leave for Des Moines in a few hours, then will be riding up to

for the Anniversary Deal!
with Jeff Wright, Fatty, and a bunch or other derelicts because Jeff's S&S Shovel is in the 50th Build off.

It also turns out that S&S asked me to be in the build off as well with my X-Wedge!
Very Cool! Even though if it came down to voting between mine of Jeff's I'd have to give it to Jeff, his bike KILLS it!

So this bike will be in LaCrosse as well!

And FRIDAY NIGHT IN LACROSSE, there is the mandatory COC party!

So, if you can make it come down, or up, depending where you are comin from, DO IT FUCKERS!!!

Ultimate Chopper - Ultimate Metal

Okay, there are some things I hold dear in this world.
One of them is good old metal. Not motley crue, not skid row, but
REAL FUCKING METAL.
now, it doesn't get more metal than the Obsessed
With Wino at the helm, they recorded some of the best, heavyest metal ever.
Then the Obsessed disbanded and Wino went to LA where St Vitus was formed.
St Vitus is in my opinion the heavyest metal ever, slow, heavy, brutal.

He then left St Vitus to reform the Obsessed.
Then Spirit Caravan.
He then moved on to record a record with Place of Skulls.
His newest creation is Hidden Hand, led by the insanely real and haunting Wino vocals.

One of my favorite St. Vitus songs is a song called Born To Late, (It's on my myspace profile)

This picture PROVES it.

This is Wino on his Panhead. He was obviously born too late.

Pure metal, Pure chopper.
Wino has always been one of my heroes, but when my ex-wife gave me this pic (Thanx Tam,) it just about wrecked me, this is the real deal, on every level.

Scott "Wino" Weinrich
what a fuckin ruler.

Sweetest biker tattoo

Ok, its true, I am a Star Wars nerd

and when I was a little kid, my favorite toys in the world were legos, that is before I discovered the fun of fireworks, you know building them into models and lighting them on fire so they explode...

anyway, this is the coolest lego set EVER!!!
The Mother fucking DEATH STAR!!!



And look at all the rad figures!!!

Sweeet.

I love Red Glyptal



Even more that I found it in spray form!

What the fuck is this!?!

Damn it was hot today...

Yeah this has nothing to do with today's weather...
but
I did have to clean foot prints off my gas tank...

so sad... the YRB-49a



The YRB-49A took off on its first test flight on May 4, 1950. Its first flight was from Hawthorne to Edwards AFB. Tests were conducted at Edwards AFB for a period of time. On August 10, 1950, during its tenth test flight, the cockpit canopy blew off, tearing away the pilot's oxygen mask and injuring him slightly. Fortunately, the flight engineer was able to supply enough emergency oxygen to the pilot so that he was able to land the aircraft safely.
In early 1952, the YRB-49A was flown to Northrop's Ontario International Airport facility for the installation of a device that would improve the stability. However, at this time the Air Force had cut off further funding for the YRB-49A project, and the aircraft remained sitting out in the open in dead storage for a period of time. It was finally scrapped by the Air Force in November of 1953.




This may be the remains of the YRB-49A.
