Memorial Day weekend.

Back home for the weekend and back to the shop, where my parents work. Where I worked through highschool. Working nightshifts during the summer at 16, welding with dad and the small nightshift crew. Coming back to work here after my 1 year, "college experience."I've learned alot in this factory. Anyways, pops is the foreman of the shop, so we got in on saturday to put together something to hold more luggage for them on their 3 week trip coming up.

It's not the prettiest thing by any means but you could definetly pick the bike up with it.

Coming to dad's place, you can always count on 2 things for sure. Beer and Bikes. As the night drew to an end for some, bikes filled the garage.

After a short day of riding, bikes then invaded my garage. Dad and a buddy rode up to KC with me to help me with some wrenching. This is about all that got done. Couldn't have asked for a better weekend.

Kansas city

Got a picture from a friend at work. Downtown KC yesterday. Pretty neat. Today it's tornadoes. Forgot my lunch at home. RedX wouldn't serve us, locked their doors and took cover, Jimmy John's locked their doors too. Atleast I can rely on HyVee.

I've been having car problems lately. Me vs. Lug nut - I win. Me vs. replacing 4 disc brakes, 8 brake pads, 6 spark plugs, 2 control arms, oil/filter, transmission oil/filter... by the end of the week so the bike can take over the garage? No idea. I actually lost the battle against spark plugs tonight.

Funny dude Jason. Good friend, always good for a few laughs. Hangin' out, enjoying having a space.

The shop is taking shape, finally got some tools here in KC, the never ending bike project (I don't ride it, I just needed a project once, worked on it for awhile, put it away, and now it's back)

$60 for the toolboxes (Craigslist). Free lumber/drill from a friend to put this table together tonight. Free stickers from FTWCO. It's a damn good start.
