Cool gratitude...

Freezing their butts off by minus 25 degrees Celsius... German bullets flying around your head, stuck in a fox hole in the forrests in Belgium, seeing your buddy get his throat getting shot out by the jerries... No supplies coming in...

Enormously big amount of respect and gratitude for the men that fought for our freedom, 66 years ago now... To get a idea of the situation, watch Band of Brothers episode 6 - Battle of Bulge...
Let us never ever forget...!!!

Cool forrest finds...

With 2010 coming to an end, greatest radio show of the Top2000 (the 2000 best pop songs ever... best listened to through www.radio2.nl) on my headphones, commuting to work with public transport again...
Due to slippery roads after some more snow and the freezing tempratures... Thinking of the song 'The worker' by Fisher-Z...
"...hate that journey on the train..."
I'm ready for walks in the forrest with my woman in spring, come on give me some good weather again...!!!

Cool and Rusty desert findings...

Here is another one for the 'Cool & Rusty' label... Found it somewhere on the world wide spiders web net or something like that...
Just love these picas but I think you might have noticed...

Cool ride again...

The woman of the little flower shop in front of the building I work in (she rides as well): "You are so brave (or crazy) to ride in this weather..."
Yeah it was a bit nippy and slippery but we made it to work and back in one piece... The fallen snow now turned into plaques of ice on sidewalks and roads... Mmm..., always keep your cool...!!!

Cool Santa ride...

Last night I ran into this beauty... Is Santa already in town...? Or...?
Maybe it's a good idea for me as well, riding with a third wheel when there is ice and snow around...

Merry Christmas all...!!!

Cool islands...

I'm in desperate need of some nice summer weather like in this pica above... Nice cool cocktail in my left hand, in my right had my lovely woman, our kids having fun in the sun... O, sorry... just dreaming...!

Cool snow pica...

So, last Friday... No busses in Amsterdam, had to walk to catch a tram towards Central Station... Total chaos @ Central Station... Found a train that was going towards I wanted to go...
Arriving @ Haarlem Station... Chaos... No busses, heavily snow... Had to walk home...
After a hour of trying to make my way home trough the bloody snow, I arrived home finding The Young Geisha looking different then that morning...
I'm in need of some warm summer weather..., had enough of the freaking bloody snow...!!!

Friday, December 17, 2010

Cool snow chaos...?

Total choas on the Dutch roads... seems that public transport in Amsterdam is down... Looks like I'm walking back to train station (approx. over an hour) and then I'll have to see if the trains are still riding...

Cool green men...

Ran into this pica in the archives... Loads and deepest of respect for the men in green that came to Europe's rescue in the second world war... Been reading about the battle of Bulge, my god minus 18 to minus 25 degrees, Jerries bullets flying around your head and the only thing you can hide in is a 'foxhole'... Next spring I will go to Belgium to pay my respects to the ones who didn't make it then...

Cool findings...

Found this pica of this abandoned motorcycle on the net... It's been ganging out there for quite some time, just look at the front tire...
The first thing that popped into my head was... "Cool undercover"

(Pica source: theworldwidewebster)

Cool Wall-Art

Just imagine you're working in an office based in an old school... On the walls there are some pieces of art painted... One of them is this one above... Me thinks this is a cool piece of Wall-Art...

Cool mobile shot...

Yesterday in the afternoon, after decorating the tree, we went outside for a little walk in the neighbourhood... Cold wind, snotty noses but a nice sun peaking through the clouds...
On the waterfront of our local lake I couldn't resist making thisone, and I can't resist bothering you with it... Took thisone with my mobile phone...
Not a bad quality me thinks... So here is your Sunday Special for this week...

Cool busy biking Saturday...

video

Last Saturday it was quite busy in our town... loads of angels and other bikers... They were here to escort an Angel called Rob to his last resting place... He was short a week before...
It was impressive to see so many bikes in a row...

Cool flash forwarders...

I found thisone on the Net, it's a good example of what I'm thinking of these days... Summer!!!
In a small and white world (foggy and covered with snow), I'm longing for summer... No more slipping and sliding, just cruising around at ease...

Cool Young Geisha...

The girl from Nippon has a little winters break... Going nowhere... Roads slippery like speed skating ovals in the morning, wet in the afternoons and frozen again during the evening/night... Bugger mate!... Damned public transport...

Monday, December 6, 2010

Cool destination...

Due to the weather, frozen side walks and streets, I had to take the public transportation to work... Traveling through a small world (very foggy!), to work takes me three times longer then when I take The Young Geisha there... Here is a foggy pica of the building I work in...
Whilst I was sitting in the bus and looked outside, these words came up: 'Fogging hell mate!'

Cool reminder...

Yesterday, in Amsterdam, it started snowing around 15:00 o'clock... I left the office around 17:00 and rode home on The Young Geisha... Very slippery, I can tell you...!
Riding not faster than 50/60 km/hr and slowing down for bends in the roads... Two feet on the ground as I had to take 90 degree turns... Specially the last km's home where the slipperiests, no salt on the roads and streets... And when I arrived home I gently used the rear breack but the wheel blocked as soon as I touched the brake pedal... Sideburning towards the house... ha ha ha...
So I had a good lesson: 'Snow and two motorised wheels don't really go good together...' But I made it...!

Made me think of an earlier post, another cool story:
My parents apparently are some motorcycling pioneers over here in The Netherlands… My father and one of his brothers used to own a 98cc motorcycle and later (after ’56-’57) these two brothers both owned a identical 350cc Jawa. Proudly my mom tells me: “Theirs did 49 km’s a liter of gasoline, ours did 50"The tradition is that on January 1st you visit your family and in laws to bring them your New Year whishes in person. It must have been January 1st 1955, I guess, my parents were dating at that time and my father came to pick-up my mother at her parents where she was living still. He came to pick her up to go to his parents… on a 98cc motorcycle. The last days and the last night it had been snowing so the streets and road were very slippery. Not a lot of people had enough money to buy a car and especially these days, with the snow, people used the public transportation. On the corner of a street there was a bus stop, totally packed!! My parents came to that corner on their bike and the only thing my father said to my mother was: “Whatever happens, don’t scream or yell.” My mother proudly tells me: “I didn’t yell”

So my father in these days already understood that:
Whatever happens; always keep your cool!

Cool cold weather...

This morning when I rode my Young Geisha to work, I did n't see any other motorcyclists... Maybe that was because of the weather... It almost felt like riding to the North Pole...
Outside temp was -2 degrees Celsius, whilst riding it felt like -13 degrees... Freaking cold I can tell you... Thank god for the cold weather clothing...! But... where was everybody on two wheels...??? Pussies!!

Cool new toy...

Since this weekend I got a new toy... Some kind of Android smart cell phone, with navigation, maps, layar, music player and a 5 megapixel camera... Hope I can bore you more with interresting picas, taken with this little bugger...
First I have to find out how the bloody thing works, RFMF (read the fucking manual first...!)!!! Yeah, I know...!

Cool new shead...

Finally, after two years it stands... a cool additional shead in the backyard...
Together with my ink-filled friend Pat we build this little sweathole in one Saturday... Still have to do some finishing-up and then clean out the old one... Make room for the Old Gall...
It's getting there finally...! 'The shead'...

Cool in-home wrenching...

Last week in the evening the outdoor temprature was around 1 degree Celsius... Very foggy, foggy hell mate!... Ha ha ha... anyways, front brakes where sticking and I really had to get my hands dirty... So I told the misses I was doing some work in the livingrrom... ha ha ha... They seemed to be so serious sticking like sticky tape... after one evening from 20:30 till 23:00 of hardcore brake cleaning, ...they still stuck... Next day took teh bike to the local bike shop and they had the right tools to finish the job...
Instead of sqeezing the juice out of a street brick, I can brake with only the slightest touch of my index finger... Ooowh, sexy...!

Cool angel...

I know a cool angel... Two years ago I met her in Amsterdam, in a hospital... My wife and me met her today two years ago... Tomorrow it's two years ago we released her back to nature, burried her human shell in the dunes... We called her Liv...
My last words to her: "Forever Liv on!"

Cool new television season...

Last night, as me being a biker, had a good night... First, on the same channel, we kicked off with Ghost Rider... Nice movie about the legend of Ghost Rider and evil spirits and so on... I was a bit disapointed with the 'super hero style' way Johnny rode his chopper upwards along the side of a building... Bummer...

Right after Ghost Rider, without commecial break, we rode into a Quinten Tarantino's movie called Hell Ride...
Nice movie (first used song made me think of Pulp Fiction!), nice bikes...
I think I saw a Exile bike in there ridden by the leader of the six six sixers...
It actually is gonna be a good winter... This Sunday we'll kick off with a double episode of Sons of Anarchy... I will be on the couch from 21:45 till 23:45 or so...

Cool and Rusty...

Freaky Friday...!!!
Found this beauty on the net... This pica is taken in Greece by eu-moto, Bernhard Egger... He has the copy right, I use it in the Fair Use way... Notice all the chrome went rusty and the aluminum went dull 'cause of the salty air... The other nice thing here is, that it's for rent...!!!

Cool or to hot...

Is it the temprature outside that made these coppars go inside, or is it the women in underwear behind the windows that made them go inside... Likes like a cool job to me, riding your sickle around and now and then go in and chat to these ladies... Cops caught at the redlight district Amsterdam

Cool Redbacks...

Last Friday when I got home, I found a big box on the table... After about a week my shipment had arrived, the one my sister send over from Australia that is...
She planned on bringing them herself but plans changed... I bought these on the net for half the price there her in The Netherlands...
These boots look like Blundstones but the walk a hundred times better...!! Redbacks rule...!!!

The black ones in the middle I used daily for the last 6 years, they needed replacements...!!

Cool yellows...

Last Saturday bought myself some new and warm winter gloves at the motorcycle store... Also a "bankrobber's" hood with coldblocker (look really silly when I wear that!!) and... a bright yellow high visibility vest with reflective sections across it...

This morning I found out that some Spanish prostitutes have to wear them as well... Don't think this colour turns anyone on...! Hope they won't mistake me for one of them as I race to work and home here in Amsterdam, The Netherlands...

Cool and abandonded too...

Sunday after a family visit, with our bicycles, we walked out a little pedestrians tunnel connecting our village with an other... We ran into this little beauty... We have passed this point so often but this was the first time we saw her standing there... Will return soon to make some more picas of her...
