The Daily: Mike D's Texas Tweaker

 

To hear Suckerfree Mike D tell it, the story on his latest daily rider goes something like this: "I pulled it outta Texas from a three-tooth-havin', self-proclaimed meth addict. Thing's tight and right though, and worth the 2,800-mile round trip it took to get it. Why is it tweekers are always such good H-D wrenches?"

This whole Mike D. phenomenon is getting out of hand, but I embrace another one. Good bike brother.

The tweakers in my neighborhood just steal helmets.

First, that is just about the perfect bike in my book. Even when they went to soft tails. Regardless of my hate/love relationship with Harleys, if I could only ever own one bike, that would have to be it. (Well, as of this moment anyway).

I've noticed tweekers can keep shit running, more bailing wire and chewing gum than 'wrenching' in a 'fix-it-right' way. They don't seem to mess with shit that is working even if it is just plain wrong.

I don't get helmet stealers. That should be like stealing a car battery - GTA all the way. Fucking 7 years in the state pen. If the state thinks helmets are so fucking vital that you HAVE to have one, and they waste time making laws, anyone that steals one should be treated like they stole an essential element of the vehicle and charged with grand theft. Of course, I'd just push the skinny fuckers down the stairs and collect my helmet at the bottom...

Wow, that pissed me off.

2nd that. England doesn't deserve any of our nice old iron. I know a guy's gotta make a buck, but if we keep selling off a ton of cool shit international, there just won't be any left at some point in time. There's definitely a finite quantity left. I guess it's just england, of all places. i still have an embargo in effect since i got deported from there in 02. Bastards!

Mike D. is the man!

Nice write up. Good pics. The bike is even better in person, but they always are. Three cheers for Mike D (however many other others there may be).
