The true value of friends
#1
Bit of a long one

So here is the deal Seedpod has been meticulously tooling away on a sweet little bowleg rigid chopper in a shed at the bottom of the garden for months. 88ci shovel, kicker, shaved fork legs, modified triple trees, Bobbed off rear guard, 21in front wheel,3in primary all very nice, low, slim, loud and fast just like back in the day. He’s painted it candy yellow with pearlescent white ghost flames Cool

On finishing it he calls up Mister and Rolls to come have a looky then ride with him to the pub and wets its head. Mr and Rolls show up go to the back of the house sing out. Seedpod swings the door open with a flourish befitting such a grand moment, unveiling all the eyeball shattering brilliance of highly polished chrome and fresh candy paint. Big Grin

He starts the bike points it up the hill towards the house and the bike starts to wheelspin on the steepest bit about 15ft before the pavers. Seedpod in his wisdom applies much swearing and more throttle and starts using his feet to scoot it along. More throttle more swearing, feet moving faster than a hummingbird on speed laugh, Rolls and Mr laughing like mad men and providing suitable encouragement to Seedpod
About 3 foot from the top the bike suddenly gets traction stands on the back wheel drags Seedpod at high speed. Man and machine disappear through the closed kitchen door, splinters of wood, dust, dirt, much crashing and bashing then tyre smoke drifting out of the shattered kitchen door. Stunned Silence, then holy Jesus Mrs Seedpod has hits the roof “ Seedpod you f@cking useless gronk what the f@ck have you done to my kitchen you stupid bastard” followed by many more terms of endearment. Rolls is on his hands and knees by the smashed in door, making guttural animal noises while long stings of snot and dribble follow him barely, able to see through the tears of laughter rofl. Mister has fallen down the bank from laughing so hard and is laying in the garden next to the gnomes unable to move laugh.
The kitchen is wrecked there is a skid mark along the front of the cupboards and the bike has destroyed the kitchen table, Mrs Seedpods down the other end of the house threatening murder most foul and including Mr and Rolls in her plan of multiple homicide. Seedpod casually stands up straightens his shirt and say “Well what do you thing of me bike boys” laugh later their telling the story to me in fits of laughter. Seedpod turns to me with a very serious and reflective look and says “Luke I should of just used the drive way” Haha
You just cannot make this stuff up, and before there is a request for pics not going to happen because everyone in the story is a member of a very powerful outlaw motorcycle club

Haaa I MUST lol.... loved the story!

Back in the day my first motorcycle ride was at the ripe age of 7 or 8 on a Cushman Eagle... brothers then moved up to a Honda 160 Dream.... then to a Honda 305 scrambler ..... a lull in motorcycles till I was 16... a friend stole (yes it was stolen) a 350 "4" Honda... I rode it for weeks till ditching it for yet another friend to pick it up and ride it for a while. Fast forward bought (yes legally) a 650 Honda... rode it for awhile then traded it for a BMW R90s

Now where my history relates to the story.... I hung around a rough group some know as "The Hells Angels" in Nashville ...I'm the only known rider to ride with a foreign bike...only because my brothers friend and our next door neighbor "Big MAC" was a known member and I was a "good fellow" so to speak as a little brother of a "known" member and could handle my own in a brawl so I was allowed to ride.

Mr Rpmcarter in Australia that sort of friendship is now called criminal association. If you associate with 2 or more people that have convictions. Convictions in this case could mean traffic offences etc. you are a criminal associate sir even if you have never had a conviction in your life. This law can be enforced at individual police discretion. WTF. Seriously we are becoming a very over regulated country.

Hells Angels hey,never heard of themWink. Aussie HAMC chapters are/where the only charters world wide where full patch members can ride any type of bike. This goes back to the early days when there was more Brit bikes here than Harley's. Just a bit of outlaw trivia for you.
See if you can get a copy of an Aussie movie called stone there is a brawl in the move in front of a pub. Real HA,real Nomads,Turned into a real fight lol

great stuff Luke!! Cant wait till our country becomes like yours. heck surprised your even allowed a cool car!

Yeah I've had some "associations" not worthy of public appreciation in my past. In fact ole high school acquaintances say "WTF happened we figured you'd be in Jail"

In fact one of my running buddies is still in on a murder rap..... odd though... he was trying his best to get me to run with him that night and this weird feeling came over me to skip the invitation.... sure enough he was on the news the next morning.

That weird feeling has happened to me on about 5 occasions ...all 5 invitations turned bad and I escaped all 5 times. call it God, karma or something but I believe in it.

Ride that vibe brother. Dont need to be living one foot in the grave Because as the saying goes 3 can keep a secret if 2 are dead.

Great Story you shared Luke...brought back some memories for me for certain. I agree ride the vibe... it kept me out of trouble all but one time and my days now are all about spending time at home and raising awesome kids. Heck if I have 3 beers I won't even get in one of my Mustangs or the other cars either. So i guess you can say I learned from the failures of others.

Hell I'm more like Jimmy Stewart in "It's a Wonderful Life" now...HAAAaaa Big Grin
