This Sunday I’ll be riding my motorcycle like a gentleman. I’ll be participating in the worldwide Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride. The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride is all about riding dapper, having fun and raising awareness for men’s health issues. There’s a fund raising component too, so if you feel so inclined, please click the link below and drop a penny or dollar in my virtual fundraising hat.

I first heard this album on NPR’s Firs Listen a few weeks ago. Ever since then I’ve been obsessed with Bombino’s music. It’s too bad I don’t understand his lyrics, but as the cliche goes: the music speaks for itself. The album cover is pretty awesome too, wheelie-ing a vintage motorcycle in the desert with a stratocaster and a cape pretty much ticks all the boxes.
Big Sur has been near the top of my ‘places to visit’ list for a while now. This video didn’t do anything to change that, but it did make me long for a sidecar motorcycle. Maybe I could even ride through the long Vermont winter if I had three wheels?
Grinding away some excess fender with The Dead Weather on the radio and a cold beer on the workbench makes for a pleasant Friday evening.
It’s cold out, zero degrees Fahrenheit cold. There’s only one thing to do: dream about warm weather, riding motorcycles and camping…

PS: This video introduced me to Ben Howard, for which I’m grateful.
