remember that show Overhaulin. man, i loved that show, they would "steal" a persons car and then return it to em all done out. Apparently some dork complained about the work that was done to his car, which resulted in the show getting canned. Bitterness aside, my favourite ride that they built was Chip Foose's truck. this thing was all time and is my dream ride right now, check it out - you know you love it

johnny on the spot

one thing about this bike is that its loud. now i'm talking loud in a nasty,ass kicking way; i love it. John took a bone stock 2009 harley "girls" bike and hammered out what you see here. What i dig about the bike is the details - john took the stock risers, cut and machined them down to what you see in the pics - while also cleaning up the dreaded eye brow. next thing on the list was to make up some tank lifts and chop the rear struts and fender. in the end, the bike is loud, fast and fun as hell to ride. check the specs

love and hate... the story of a man and a muffin

I grew up a hater of anything pumpkin; as I imagined that it would taste alot like a sour potato, and the idea of having that in a pie was something that made me sick at the very thought of it. Years went by, and I would see people eating pumpkin pie and think "that must be gross. fools" that was until a few years ago when I was tricked into having a piece of pumpkin pie with whipped cream. I can remember it like it was yesterday, I was so into the pie, thinking "man, this cinamon nutmeg pie is awesome." after finishing the pie I was then told that I had actually eaten pumpkin pie; what wasted years I thought. Why did I deprive myself of the brilliance that is the pumpkin? Nostalgia aside, I have since fallen in love with the pumpkin, and the glorious treats it produces.

That brings me to the point of this whole post - As they do in the fall, the good people of Starbucks have released their amazing cream cheese pumpkin muffin. I love this thing, and have enjoyed three in the past 3 days. I even considered eating another one today, but was thwarted when starbucks had sold out of them; maybe a sign from a higher power that I should wait? Nevertheless, I will return tommorow. If you were like me and avoid pumpkin like the plague, do yourself a favor and drop in on a pumpkin cream cheese muffin, your tummy will thankyou.

Ode to the pumpkin muffin - I hate you pumpkin muffin for making me fat. I hate you pumpkin muffin for making me spend all my money. I hate you pumpkin muffin for the time I waste thinking about eating you…. I love you pumpkin muffin.. Until tommorow

super sunday

So I get a text from Naj asking if I wanted to join him and some buddies on a bike ride this past Sunday. As I hadnt seen Naj in some time, and experienced the crazyness of his hellraiser I jumped at the opportunity.

meeting spot at a local funeral home - is that bad karma?
The ride kicked off with about 10-15 guys in tow; and was predominatley sport bikes with a few harleys, a suzuki cruiser and a speed triple triumph thrown into the mix. Initially, it was mellow as we cruised around the backroads of langley bc, when the sport bike guys turned things up. My bike held its own, but was no match for the speed triple; that thing is unbelievebly fast.

speed triple single sided swingarm, awesome.
The crew planned to keep going to harrison, but a few of us had to head back and take care of domestic duties so Naj, a couple of buddies and I pealed off for a beer. Despite being horribly hung over from the night before I made it through a beer while laughing my ass of after hearing the latest edition of "fight stories with Naj." after scaring the other restaurant guests, we headed out for an entertaining ride home, full of wheelies, skids, and other awesomeness.

at the rest spot. the neighbours were scared.
Overall, a great day in the sun which left me hyped on how the bike performed. The family and I ended the day at one of my favorite places in the world, Spanish Banks. Thanks for the invite Naj, the hellraiser still kills it!

best way to end a great day.
