Awoke her from hybernation...

Last year, just before a foreign trip with friends (which I missed at the last moment due to another case of pneumonia), I had to replace the carb. My Mikuni kept pooring gasoline out through the overflow tube, on my exhaust...
Seemed that where the floters-axle is attached to the housing, the hanging point was broken. That was why it couldn't close properly anymore so I had to replace the carb. Swopped all my old screws and settings to my new carb and... it ran pretty good. A little back fireing when closing the throttle. When I placed her on the side stand, the idle went up... Mmm, a mind of her own? I desided to bring her to a carb specialist but before that I had to wake her from hybernation though. If she knew what was going to happen and she started pretty easy. (Riding the motorway I was embaressed of the layer of dust I collected on her... oops.) It will take a little more than 15 minutes to clean and polish (which I hate) her. May 9th I will pick her up again after we come back from Paris... can't wait.

(So we'll be gone fishing from Friday till May 6th)

Cool live show, ...the images...!!

video

So, here we go... I captured this with my small digital camera (Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W70), standing in the back of the hall about 50 meters from the stage right behind the soundman's pit. The pictures turned-out a bit wobbely but the video turned out pretty good, I think. My god did Chris play his gitars like the devil was on his tail or not? We had a good time, and if you were there; I was the one in the back singing along with every bloody song mate!

Getting his hands dirty...

When my father was drafted (at 21) for his militairy service, he did the course and became a airplane mechanic... Due to this job while he was in the army/airforce he saddly lost a part of his hearing. At the moment I'm struggeling with hearing loss as well so unfortunatly I know how he feld.
Not only my (and my brothers's) 'gettingyourhandsdirty' but also the bad hearing seems to be in the blood...

Cool pica...

Here is another one from the old shoe box... Here is my mom sitting on the hood of my grandfathers Vauxall and my dad giving her picked flowers.
This was on a trip prob in Germany or Luxembourg, they were acompanied by my grandparents. That was common in these days, you couldn't go on a trip the two of ya when you were not married so they had two chaparones. The picture wass taken or by my grandmother or grandfather. Must be around 1956 or so.

(Nice car !)

Cool RMC Chopper Show 2009, continious...

So with eight bikers we went to the 18th Rogues MC Choppershow, which is held annually. When we arrived it was already quite busy and I couldn't wait to get my camera out to make some cool pictures. Outside there where interesting bikes and on the show itself it was the same recepy, with even a "B-movie" booth made by friends of ours: Sik, Marco and Coco. Good job guys!! Here is a first impression of bikes down there...

Cool vintage biker meeting...

Here's one how they had fun in the early days... a little racing and a lot of spectators on both sides of the street waiting for something to happen... These days, saddly, it's very often only a lot of "Show 'n Shine"... "...See all the chrome I added from the catalog..." What happend to the old black paint spray can or brush...? That's why I like the old school style and the un-restored vintage bikes.

Cool RMC Chopper Show 2009...

Yesterday, easter, we had the annual Rogues MC Chopper Show and yeah, it was cool again. Weather was great about 20 degrees celsius, show was cool bikes were cool and this year a lot of people came on their bikes. One of them out side the show was a Larry Indianish chopper with an Amsterdam Pirates tank. Another nice detail is the different rocker boxes; one Pan one Shovel... When they left I found out that the owner was not a slow rider, doesn't spare the bike at all...!!

Looks like the guy in the middle is saying:
"Hell, I'm sorry guys... you two are to late, we ran outta cool beer... Please don't shoot the messenger!!..."

Roadside repair...

Here is one of my favorites so far... Taken on an annually run with the Chees Hunters, here is my friend Sik repairing his mastercylinder only 5 minutes (or was it three...?) after taking off.
Still feels like a 'lucky shot' but love the lines in this picture... the exhaust, the lines on the road and the tools...

(Coolpic!!)
