Motion Left, GR, TBS, MF, Guns & Bandits

This past weekend was certainly fun. Andrea and I took a ride in the Bratmobile over to Goshen. It's about a 120 mile drive through the countryside of Indiana. Goshen is the nicest little town to ever be taken over by a moped gang. It is also a geographical oddity, because you sure as heck cant get there via any interstate. I hope you like little towns and Amish buggies because you will be slowing down for them frequently. Fortunately, I like both. Devin decided to have a get together at his shop and honored me by hosting the party in my honor. A mini-rally it could be called, with only one moped ride, where only 3 people participated. We mostly just spent Saturday in the shop, playing ping pong, excite bike, dancing, yelling, laughing, drinking and fixing mopeds or porting engines. In this photo, you can see Gangles diligently adapting his Polini for a Dio intake, and Bengry porting his fingernails. It was great fun. We also enjoyed the fair weather and after Wads and I mastered the tall bike, we tried to double team the super tall bike, with limited success. Those nice guys from Motion Left (and friends) made me a banner. It has been pointed out that my name shouldn't have an H, but most people spell my real name wrong as well, so I'm used to it. The pictures are slightly doctored ones of me doing responsible things. I've never had a banner made of me before, I'll try to not let it go to my head. I also spent the weekend trying to hard sell Gangles into buying a Subaru Brat. I've got a line on 3 sweet little rigs all together in one place and we are dreaming up a Brat run involving a 4 Brat convoy down the highway on the way home. The dancing is always fun at Motion Left, but sadly our party was not the most happening thing on the block, as a Quinceanera at the Wagon Wheel Event center next door was PACKED and BUMPING. In table tennis, I learned that it's hard to put a shot over the end of the table against a man with 3 foot long arms, but then again, I was playing Gabe left handed. I did manage to beat Devin several times this weekend, and there is a certain curve which I have plotted here that shows one's skill in table tennis compared to the number of drinks they have had. I'm not sure at which times on the chart I was winning my matches, so it's hard to say who is better. I'll just be sure to play with both eyes open next time and we will find out who is the best.

This is my perspective on the weekend. For a different view, please read Gabe's blog.
