Philosophy and Motorcycles

Philosophy and motorcycles are two of my favorite things in life. This blog will be bits of wisdom gleaned from a misspent youth and an adventurous dotage. People who like/love wisdom or motorcycles, classic or modern versions of either, are welcome to visit and comment.

I have been married to the same lovely woman for decades. We have one son, two cats, and live in rural Wisconsin, USA. I ride and rebuild motorcycles, and I am semi-retired. Favorite bikes are Yamaha XS650, FJ1200 and Ducati 900SS. My wife is a home care nurse. I am a Myers-Briggs INTP. She is ESFJ. Our son works at the Apple store in downtown SF and is teaching English as a second language in San Francisco, no grandchildren.

A theme song and news in brief.

Another project, 1971 New Yorker.

I wrote a little ditty for all the people who partied to hard recently. It goes like this:


Detox Theme

To the tune of "Bringing In The Sheaves"








Sweating out the beer

Sweating out the beer

Checking into detox

Sweating out the beer

I spent all my money

Now I'm feeling funny

Checking into detox

Sweating out the beer.


(second verse)

Sweating out the beer

Sweating out the beer

Sitting in the smoke room

Sweatin' out the beer

Telling lots of stories

Of our drinking glory

Sitting in the smoke room

Sweating out the beer


(third verse)

Sweating out the beer

Sweating out the beer

Sitting in pajamas

Sweating out the beer

Thinking of a tale to

Keep me out of jail, oh

In those blue pajamas

Sweating out the beer.


(forth verse)

Sweating out the beer

Sweating out the beer

I promise to behave I'm

Sweating out the beer.

I promise to behave dear

If you'll bring my car here

Now that I am over

Sweating out the beer.




I recently returned from the Burning Man celebration in Nevada. I didn't take a bike out. My son now lives in San Francisco. I flew out and we rented a motor home. It was a very unusual event for someone my age and upbringing. More about that later. We also had a smaller celebration here on the shore of the Mississippi River.

For now I am trying to get some projects finished quickly before winter sets in. At this latitude that could happen soon. I finally got my T3 put together, painted, running and found that it has a bad rear seal. Rats! I need to take it all apart again and replace the rear seal. I like the T3 a lot but it has been crazy making trying to get to the end of the problems.

Luckily the Chrysler New Yorker doesn't need much. I have all the basics refurbished. Exhaust and a few little things are, hopefully, all that's left.


Be well, do good and keep in touch.
