Some paint

I through some paint on my bike finally, after doing Becks paint and motor I didn't have the time to do what I wanted on my paint this summer. But it give me more time to think about things and try a few others. I have a 2.2 gallon tank like this one that I will frisco and then I'll paint like this or something real similar. I will stripe the rear fender too, I just run out of time and good weather so I never put stripes on it. Its pretty laid back and that's what I wanted, just one continuous stripe.

"Wanna see my snake?"

Yep that's what he asked us as we pulled into the pumps last Saturday evening. We stopped to get gas at a station that is on a reservation on the North coast. It's pretty isolated from the rest of the world and is very laid back. I was very hesitant to answer him, you know trick questions and all, but after he started digging up his sleeve I said "sure" and then he whips it out. He let it crawl on his head, in his ear and then said "it tries to go up my nose but I am afraid it will get in my belly and eat my food". He found out I had a camera and asked me to take a picture of him, he looked at it on my camera and approved it, he hung out while I gassed up the bikes and walked with me when I moved them over to the parking spot chatting and telling me about his snake.

Kool Green Kar


Kool spider web seats.

These were well done and very nice.

Kool kars

This kar has some cool work, the headers really stood out as well done and cool, m0re pics of this one later, my daughter said the grill looked like ribs on a skeleton

I'm not a fan of weird colors but this one is nice, very clean.

Well done, clean and probably lots of fun.

Nice old ride, super clean.

Race videos

Destroyer doing its thing.

Spider and Matt, on a couple of EVO sportys. Spider, the yellow bike, got some water in his carb and was running crappy, he got it cleaned out and had a great run later.

Henke vs Henke, the Henke brothers running against each other in the cash shoot out, a little game playing and nice wheelie on the start.

Slingshots running at or over 150mph in the 1/8th mile

The bikes

There were plenty of bikes there but only about 6 racing, they need about 6 to 10 more to really get things going for the bikes. They have been twisting my arm for a while and I may be in the fray next year. If we can get Beck to race her bike that will give then 2 more. If you have a scooter, HD, Ricer or whatever and ever wanted to run it down the track, come on up.

I couldn't resist taking this one "Bad ass Choppa guy" Matt is a cool guy and a good racer, I just happened to catch him on his pit bike.

The Destroyer, what more do I need to say, the guy who runs it is a great guy.

A few bikes people rode up or out one.

Drag racing at Forks yesterday

http://www.westendthunder.com/Home_Page.php

I took lots of pics and lots of video. I'm going to try and get some of both up today and the rest through the week if time alows. There were lots of classic and custom cars showing also and I got lots of them too.

Ron L and his newest car, Ka-Chow, the little bastard is fast, I have some video of it running over 112mph in the 1/8 mile




Straight axle goodness


The slingshots were there, they take up a lot of time but put on a good show.

some paint

I screwed off after work today instead of cutting wood or doing one of the many chores that need to be done before winter sets in. It was warm out and I had been wanting to try some designs on this tank. It turned out OK, when I get the other one Frisco'd I will spend more time and do a nice job on the paint, this one will get me by. Now all I need is some warn weather to shoot some clear on this, keep your fingers crossed.

A weekend in Eastern WA

Beck, Sasha, Wes and I headed to E Wa last Friday for the weekend. We got to spend some time with Becks Grandma and some time in the mountains, where we are headed for hunting season.

A couple of lazy bones sleeping in the tent Saturday morn.


Beck getting things ready to take the tent down, Wes wondering where he is and what he got his self into.


Turkeys in Dayton, there everywhere.
