Sugar Bear

I’m not a huge long bike fan but the photo of Sugar Bear with one of his 60 over forks is pretty awesome. Sugar Bear says “if it’s not long it’s wrong.”

Olivia & Friend

My cube-mates new MC Augusta ended up parked next to Olivia today. I thought the contrast was interesting.

University Honda

Gilbert Eaton started the University Honda in 1959 and ran it until 1967, when James Tenneson and Terry Saxlund bought it. Terry Saxlund sold his portion of the company in 1981. The shop shut it’s doors in 2011.

University Honda - 1967

Dewey’s 1937

Dewey’s circa 1937. I had no idea Dewey’s was open pre-war. Anyone know what brands they carried pre-war? I’d love to know what year they started selling Triumphs.

Seattle Cossacks

There are thousands of photos and videos of the Seattle Cossacks online. This one sums up one of my favorite aspects of the team. Family.

My dad had a Ford Econline pickup we affectionately called the “Dorko.” I was never a fan. I know they are “cool” now but I’m not buying it. It did get my dirt bike to a place I could ride it, I loved it for that. That said this, is the closest one ever got to being cool.

Below - my brother Rob’s first motorcycle a 1971 Kawasaki 125, the first motorcycle in our family my 1974 Yamaha GTMXA 80 (which I still own), the “Dorko” and my Grandparents. Such a great photo!
