This isn't really motorcycle related. I realize that's a pretty unusual situation for this blog. I live, eat, and breathe motorcycles, as the saying goes. Right now, as strange as it seems, I've had enough of two wheels for one day. It's time for some Chianti and to heat up some roast beef that's left over from my culinary activities on Sunday.
Ok, so I have to get motorcycles in here someplace. I spent all day on one in the rain, wind, and with idiot road users. Did their brains melt in the heavy rain? According to the weather guessers, the jet stream is bringing in three storms, one right after the other. You know how TV people are fond of cliches. Their favorite for this situation is that it's like being at the end of a fire hose. In this case the fire hose is pointed about 90 miles North of me and slowly slipping South. Of course, I'm never content to just let things come to me. So what do I do?
Yeah, you guessed it. I rode to Portland to check on some projects. I know, dumb idea. Portland's in the fire hose stream. What was I thinking? It's just not funny battling heavy rain and wind all day. Suffice it to say I'm tired. The 'Stich even soaked through which is saying something about the rain. Stacy should have been with me to try out her new Rukka jacket! So the jacket and pants are hanging on the bathtub shower curtain rod, dripping everywhere. My helmet is sitting on the dining room table near a heater vent. Gloves are secured to hangers with clothespins and hanging in a doorway. My boots are steaming as my magic boot dryer goes to work. Remind me to tell you some day about this absolutely wonderful gift my dear friend Ray gave me. Boot dryers rock!
Anyway, I'm catching up on e-mails and opened a folder I'd created for just "stuff". It's the electronic equivalent of Doug C's coffee cup storage system. This ad was stashed in there. I don't remember where it came from. I'd like to credit the source and maybe even ask permission to use it. It's too funny to pass up and I'm just hoping whoever owns it is happy to see it shared some more to show off their creativity.
As you look at this ad, remember that it's not an actual advertisement. I'm proud to be an American and have put a lot on the line for this country. I believe in American products despite owning two Japanese motorcycles. I do own a Chevy truck. Yet, there are individual corporations who just don't get it as well as a government who doesn't always do things exactly right. Right now, I'm also pretty disgusted with a bunch of drivers in American SUV's. So here's the ad. If you can't read the print on the bottom, you should be able to click on the picture and make it a bit bigger.
Stay tuned. I've got something coming up on a couple of unusual police bikes. I'm also toying with an idea for something to do with a motorcycle and a Christmas tree. Blame Steve Williams and one of his comments!
Miles and smiles,
