Barrett-Jackson Auction Palm Beach 2015




I was able to recently attend the Barrett-Jackson Auction in Palm Beach. I have seen this auction numerous times on TV, but have never been able to attend in person. I must say that attending the auction in person is so much more exciting than watching it on TV. The amount of time and effort that is put into the cars for the auction is unbelievable. I only went as a spectator with future ambitions of bidding on cars.

If you are a car enthusiast, this is an even that you must try to attend sometime. There is a vehicle there for everyone to look at and be amazed with.

Below are just some of the cars that I took the time to take pictures of.

South Florida Car Shows

Back in December and January I was able to make it to a couple car shows in South Florida. One of the car shows was the Hot Rods and Hogs car show in Immokalee, FL. I was able to meet Dave Kindig from Bitchin Rides. Cool and down to earth guy.

Below is a video of some of the great cars at the show.

Sturgis Motorcycle Rally 2014

Sturgis Motorcycle Rally 2014

Well, I finally made it to the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally and it didn’t disappoint me and I will definitely will be going back. Before I get into writing about our journey I will tell you that if you haven’t been it’s a must do. Now on to the journey.

The journey started with me leaving South Florida and heading to Georgia to meet up with my good friends. No we were not riding our bikes because I guess we are not that hardcore, plus I am still working and didn’t have the time. I do want to make the journey on the bike, so I can experience the ride across the country.

Once we arrived in Georgia we unloaded our bikes and loaded them on our friends trailer for the beginning of the real journey across country in a motorhome. Destination was Sturgis in 2 1/2, which was a total of roughly 1600 miles. Here we were getting ready to head out early in the morning. This would be our home on the road for the next 10 days.

Here’s a video of our journey…

Our first stop on our journey was St. Louis, MO so we could see the archway to the west. Being from Florida it was one of those things I wanted to see along the way. We found a great campground that is part of the casino right across from the arch.

Our next stop was one that was planned but happened, and it was a stop in Mitchel, SD. The most interesting part was stopping to see the Corn Palace. This wasn’t one of the items on my bucket list, but it was one of those things that was unusual enough to stop and visit. If you haven’t heard about it look it up online because it was an interesting part of history. The art is made of corn. You can see the pictures below.

Paint Motorcycle Fairing and Bags

I finally decided it was time to paint motorcycle fairing and bags. I have been riding my bike for about 1 1/2 years with the primer fairing and bags and decided it was time to paint them to match the bike. Since I am preparing to go to the Sturgis Motorcycle rally for the first time, I figured it was time to get off my butt and paint my primer parts.

I have a good friend that has painted in his past, so we decided to do a backyard paint job. So here are the pictures and the story.

Before picture:

We made a paint booth on my friends back patio:

Shucking Corn – The Easy Way!

Not sure if you have seen the new craze going around on the easy way to shuck corn. When I first saw this I was intrigued because people have been shucking corn for years and I just saw this now. It makes total sense, so I had to try it and it works! If you don’t believe me, watch the video and try it yourself. Enjoy!

Have you tried it yet? If not, now that you’ve seen the video you can try it yourself.

This nice little establishment is located on the intercoastal waterway in Boynton Beach, Florida. 2 George’s Restaurant) It’s a great place with a great atmosphere and nice scenery on the water. It’s a place you can get to by water as well, with ample dock space.

I had their special of the day, which was a wahoo sandwhich that you could get either grilled or blackened. I selected to go the blackened route, because I like a little spice in my life and it was done just right. Not too much or too little.

Cobra Long Shots Installation – Honda VTX 1300

COBRA LONG SHOTS INSTALLATION – HONDA VTX 1300

I have been needing to upgrade my exhaust on my 2005 Honda VTX 1300 for some time. I finally did my research and decided on purchasing the Cobra Long Shots Exhaust from Cobra USA.  I purchased the kit from Cruiser Customizing because of their great service and free shipping. I was completely satisfied with the processing and shipping of my order from Cruiser Customizing.

To help others out, I tried to make an installation video of my installation. During the filming of the video I had an issue with the camera, so I missed a small part of the installation process, however I still think the video is helpful.

Thanks for viewing and I hope it was helpful.

Here is a picture of the Cobra Longshots installed on the bike. Don’t mind the primer bags because they will be painted shortly.
