This section within SBP gives a photo/video account of some of the cool motorcycles and people I spot/meet/talk to while out 'n about on my scooter. I must admit, there's really no rhyme nor reason for the stuff that shows up here other than the fact that something "interesting" drew me to pull out my camera and snap a pic or shoot some video.
I am a "bobber" and "vintage" guy (any
brand), so don't get bent if you see more bobbers and vintage iron
on this page than other types of scooters. If I have a picture of
you or your scooter on here and you would like the picture
removed, just zap me
and I'll git 'er done, no problem. If I have a picture of your
scoot on here and you would like to zap me some specs
about, please do so. A good scooter is like a good ol' lady.
They ALWAYS have a story to tell. Enjoy and stay safe
out there! ~Squirts

Geos and Pasta House Bike Night
Rode to Geo's Wings in Belleville on May 24th for their bike night. I got there early and there wasn't much goin' on...
Second stop was the Pasta House bike night... Larger crowd with a myriad of chromed out garbage wagons and stretched out, fat-tire "factory" choppers... Beautiful paint on some of 'em, but where's the originality? Wandered the parking lot a bit until I ran into a nice feller prospecting for the Buffalo Soldiers MC (He has since earned his full patch,,, Congrats!). Actually, HE ran into ME as I was ogling one of the few bobbers in the lot (which just happened to be his). His ride is a mild, clean, rather understated Dyna, lost in a sea of neon paint and triple chrome... No flaming skulls on his scoot and we both agreed that the "essence" of a motorcycle is an engine, two wheels and a rider. All the rest is gee gaw. I also laughed when I spied his " Kill 'em all" sticker... Flashback to my Cavalry Days and my time in tha' Green Machine!
The second bike worth noting is a cool old Yammer jammer. Harley guys may get a thrill staring at a V-twin, but I'll take a bank of four headers split into two muffs any day! An inline four banger is bad ass, in my book. We talked briefly about the build and all agreed that low buck bob jobs are the best way to roll.
