You Have To Be Alive

Splitting 19th avenue
The world behind, gone.
Lost, just moments ago, there,
17, arcing, climbing
Soaring roaring
A road crowd-surfing up
A wave of rock.
The penninsula spine
Greedy wide of asphalt track
Time for the trees and wind gusting
Glimpse of the Bay, SFO
Gone behind.
The world shrunk to mirrors and gaps
Space for the bike to slip between
Sheet metal clothes of car and truck.
Tires grabbing pocked pavement potholes twisting bars, the road punches up
between contact patches, rubber at the road and rubber at the hand grips.
The bike spirals horizontally -
Wind driven trash moving on a different vector, spastic through traffic, invisible director.
Filtering to the front of the cars on the red
A three dimensional problem in a four dimensional world
Tiny windows of possibility
Stupid risks again and again and again
A junkie hit survived. Addict logic thrives.
Fate and skill and randomness all in one throw, the motorcycle and i the tumbling dice themselves on the pavement felt below.
You have to be alive
To not be dead
Supports splitting everywhere.

You guys are kind.
I wish I hadn't posted it. It's so unfinished, and now it's just sitting there staring at me.
I've been fiddling with it for a few months.
I got a bit of hubris when a friend asked me last night to share something I've been working on; thought I could post it here, too.
Consider it a peek at a work in progress. Something unimportant... like a short, stacked-stone garden wall. Maybe a foot high, 18 inches tops.

Thank you Grady. I bought this one to ease the pain of selling the Road Glide.

It’s a 2014 CVO Softail Deluxe. When it came out I lusted it but could not get myself to pay $30k for a bike.
I found this one 100 miles away for $16k.
Sunday was our madden ride.
It has an air ride suspension that gives a better ride than my Road Glide did even with its Ohlins shocks.

Inspired by oldiron this morning, when I couldn’t get my lazy ass out of bed, immersed in some Root Boy Slim,
this cover of “In Jail in Jacksonville” just, well, came out.

here’s the root boy version

https://youtu.be/KvlYHEkX79I

https://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/r/root_boy_slim/in_jail_in_jacksonville.html

The Cyclevisor version….

Rain, rain a comin

Didn’t have to
That is true
Bus was coming
It was due
Grabbed the Shoei
RayBans too
Rain not happening
What’s a guy to do?

Rain, rain rain a coming
Rain, rain rain a coming

The guy on tv
Says yeah it’s true
Your umbrella
Should be with you
He guarantee I won’t be dry
Morning clouds hangin in the sky

Rain, rain a coming
Rain, rain it’s tru

Blasting out
Ridin away
Don’t give a f:&k
What the TV say
Hit that rain like a red brick wall
Took it on like a bo Lin ball

Rain, rain is coming
Rain, ya rain is due

Got to work
Boss said what’s with you
Bone soaked rider
Without a clue
Tomorrow baby when the sky is blue
What you expect the boss to do

Rain, rain is coming
Rain, ya rain is due
Rain, rain is coming
Rain, ya rain is due

So I told him that’s okay
He’d be seeing me next day
Rain a pourin as I rode away
People lookin like I was cra za aa
Jokes on them my mind did say
I’m going riding…..all this day

Rain, rain is coming
Rain, rain is due
Rain, ya rain its tru
What’s you do dude

Its almost noon when the Sun comes out
Downtown ridin what it’s all about
It’s 1 pm got dry pants and shirt
Secretary sidewalks, lots of skirt
It’s 2pm bars are open
What’s with workin, here’s to hopeing!

Mostanyoneinthrirrightmidknowadayridinisbetterthaadayworkinyayaya

Rain, rain is comin
Rain, rain is comin
Rain, rain is comin
Rain, rain is comin

Thanks Walt.
I took it out solo yesterday to test the modification of the pipes. That 110 motor is a beast.
Jamming 2nd at throttle caused a skid mark in me draws.

well, those black bags destroy the looks of the bike. assuming the rear fender under underneath them is painted to match the two tone front.
lets see the whole bike!!!!!!!

Yes, the fenders match. I think the only softails that look real good with bags is the heritage and the heritage springers. The bags on this deluxe are a compromise. Hard to do any weekend trips two up without some bags.

Not mine but same bike bagless.
