Weekend Wigglin'



I've had a plan to build me a custom king and queen seat for my motorbike for awhile now, but couldn't seem to find the time to do it. It's a pain in the ass. I got tired of having a seat bungee corded to my frame like some clown. That said, I consulted my adviser of chemical reaction, Danny and my adviser in terms of technical proficiency, Josh and got to stepping. I planned on mounting the seat to my existing seat hinge up front, to allow me to switch back to my solo seat if I ever got the urge. So I cut some 16 gauge steel for the front section where it mounts to the hinge. Wasn't sure how strong the fiberglas was going to be. Drilled some holes in the pan to allow it to rest on the seat spring spud jams. Also, at Josh's request, drilled some 3/8 holes randomly in the pan so the resin could flow through and bond to the other side. Covered everything up with masking tape, then saran wrap so the fiberglass would pop off once hard. Fiberglass is nasty and stinks. But quite enjoyable. I built it up a layer at a time until I had it about 1/4" thick. Then sanded and trimmed it down. Turned out pretty good, I think and it's pretty damn hard. I realized I need to trim the front section down a bit so it follows the line of the rails. I'm going on vacation for a couple weeks, so the plan is to drop it off at the upholsterer and hopefully it'll be done when I get back. Party scene. Out.

2014 AMA Hillclimb Grand Championships - Part 1

Two weeks ago, the Valley Springs Motorcycle Club in Bay City, WI hosted the 2014 AMA Hillclimb Grand Championships.  It was a 2-day event spanning Saturday and Sunday.  In spite of the threat of rain, I rode down on my Sporty and attended for a little while on Sunday.

Here's the flyer.  Sorry for not posting anything about this event in advance.  I found out about it last-minute on Instagram.

It was easy to find if you just followed the signs.

The property was very cool.  I want a 4-car garage/barn one day.

The hill was awesome.

Here's the crowd.  It was really laid-back.  Bring some chairs and the family and just hang out.  A couple of guys even brought a couch in their pickup.

Here are all the awards the riders were competing for.

Action shots are up next.

Next week outside of Sweet Home OREGON...

From the website; "No Tickets Required! Just show up with yourself, your ride, and everything you will need to survive camping over the weekend. We are 20 miles out of town so it will be a little bit of a trip if you forget anything.

Were Bringing a bunch of beer and munchies but you'll need to be prepared to feed yourself if you are the type that requires more than chips and hot dogs.
