Silver Bullet



At sunset and trying out a 20mm f1.7 Panasonic lens on my Olympus E-PL1 camera body.  The f1.7 part means it works well in low light conditions.   It's camera geek stuff for sure so, yeah, you're all asleep now.  That didn't take long.

The photo above is a local joint a few miles from my house.  I know a female paramedic who's husband is a cop and she was under strict orders not to respond to calls inside the place unless there are police present.  Half the bikes in the parking lot are metric cruisers so the crowd can't be that rough although I hear that Sonny Barger is riding a Victory these days.  Does the Victory count as a metric cruiser?

Roy and Trigger Ride Along

A unique air cleaner cover on an unusual vintage Indian. At the annual vintage bike show in Phoenix 2010.  

I imagine that cowboy movie star legend Roy Rogers would have gotten a chuckle out of it.  He was a fan of Indian motorcycles and there are several pictures of him astride his Indian bikes.

Generations

Some shots from past vintage bike events.  I always enjoy seeing people teaching their kids and grand-kids the beauty of the old machinery and hopefully sharing stories of their own adventures.   Kids need to learn that there are things more exciting and more rewarding in the long run than a game console.

1977 CB400F. Memories for both.

Planting the seed.

An Important reminder from the past:
"I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments by those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations." - James Madison
