GT Charlie from Book 2 and Trash from Book 1...

GT Charlie from Book 2 and Trash from Book 1. These guys are some serious ridin' critters who just love their motorcycles.

From the Motorcyclist's Post...

I did this 'toon for the Motorcyclist's Post. A pet peeve of mine...cameras that are police, judge and jury and 1/2 the fines go to a private vendor who sets up the cameras, the light interval times and decides questionable violations.

They don't get...

I took this pic at the 2nd annual Larz Anderson Classic American Motorcycle Day. It's a 113 cubic inch S&S v-twin motor in a 2004 Swift Punisher. This motor has some serious polishing and chrome. They don't get sweeter or cleaner than this.

Scary Rider...

Scary Rider is a new character I've created...a rockin', ridin' ghost that's a bit different from those "friendly" ghosts out there.

Back in the...

Me back in the late seventies... my '67 Norton stuffed in a Matchless frame. I added Norton P11 scrambler tank, new handlebars, headlight holders, highway bar/pegs, no front fender, K&N's, oil cooler and custom seat. On the "fun" 1 to 10 scale...this bike was a solid 12!

Bandit on a custom chopper...

Our dog Bandit bookin' down the road on a cool Fall evening astride his custom chopper. I added a winter background, some lights and a bag of toys and used this one for the Xmas cards we send out. Every year, Bandit is on a different bike for the cards. FTR...the real Bandit is a Shiba Inu.

The first Bikers are Animals...

This was done for a postcard for my Classic Motorcycle Calendar © back in the early 1990's. Bikers are Animals wasn't even a thought back then. I just like the idea of a couple of animals riding on a motorcycle.

The motorcycle was my old '86 Guzzi Lemans with a Dr. John's 2 into 1 exhaust with Supertrapp muffler. The '86 had a 16" front wheel with integrated brakes. I bought it new and rode it for 15 years or until my back gave out from leaning forward. First thing I did was add Corbin seat. Stock seat was like riding on a 2x4. This bike gave me some really kick-butt riding miles.

This is pic of actual Guzzi...
