Where is that Lizard
« on: July 22, 2011, 04:45:15 am »
We know that he's having a fat time somewhere, but we've had no phone calls, no postcards and we're a little concerned for him.
If I was you
I'd be worried about me.

He's tearing up Toronto right now, will get into a pissing contest with Niagara Falls later today, then head to Windsor Ontario tonight!
Can I have a motorcycle when I get old enough?
If you take care of it.
What do you have to do?
Lot’s of things. You’ve been watching me.
Will you show me all of them?
Sure.
Is it hard?
Not if you have the right attitudes. It’s having the right attitudes that’s hard.

Looking forward to the day about 3 - 4 years out. Did you see the email about Makers White? Available only at the distillery. Makers 46 is hard to come by in Colorado Springs too. Bill Samuels was a customer of mine maybe 13-14 years ago in Prospect, KY. We chatted about the demise of 101 and I suggested Makers Barrel to him. A couple weeks later I got to be a Makers barrel taster when I was presented with a 375ml bottle at my pharmacy. THE best #$%* ever! If you have the opportunity to go to the distillery for your barrel tapping I'd suggest you do it  ;)

Godzilla will become a Cheesehead today. Riders report that the weather and scenery in the Upper Peninsula has been awesome and look forward to meeting their Wisconsin brothers.

old scrambler picked up GZ in Iron Mt. MI from the guys about 2 hours ago. He will head straight south to Green Bay. I warned him about the storms moving toward him and Green Bay which is where he is headed. Should arrive there around 5PM depending on how heavy the rain is. We have severe thunderstorm warnings now and Dennis said he would pull off if it got bad. They were saying 65 MPH winds. I got as far north as Kaukauna and turned back as the black skies got worse. I think if he waits it out in Green Bay the storms will head over the lake and he should have a dry ride to his home near Sheboygan for the night. Ride safe Dennis!!!

We got poured on briefly, but ran for a gas station for shelter for about 30 min. We got rained on a bout on the way to GB. But it cleared up for a pic at Lambeau (gag), the made it down to Dennis's rain free.

No matter where that lizard is, no matter how many of you there are, DO NOT try to out-drink Godzilla!  YOU WILL LOOSE!



As seen the morning after the Michigan Day 2 campout at Cycle-Moore.  I have no memory of how this happened!

Well ,Godzilla is having a great time in Ktown!!

 Today, we took him for metalworking lessons..
 First we had him working on an English wheel... he really liked that..
 Then he had an up-close look at the inside of a supercharger on a race bike..
 Next, he closely examined some piston that blew during a record attempt at Bonneville, earlier this month..
 He also had an up-close  look at some fabulous custom made dash in a hot rod pick-up..
 GZ is busy.. tommorow we take him to look for the lake monster..OGOPOGO, and a scenic view of Ktown..

 Bad part,I did not take many pics.. had a photographer with me.. Am thinking to send the pics to RXman to post.... nice shots .. really look good..
