ATF: An Ode to Motorrad

Well obviously we're back... Hope you've enjoyed the pics from the trip.  Needless to say it was a big time.  We stuffed ourselves obviously... We ended up hitting Mississippi, Tennessee, Alabama, Arkansas, Missouri, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, Wyoming, and Kentucky

The word Epic gets thrown around a lot these days... but in this case I don't think its hyperbole.

A: Bookers.  Celebrations call for the best

T: Spec Ops

F: Winchester 94AE in .44 mag

Here's the link to the show.

Real men start their own companies and do whatever the heck they like in their offices.

Real men have their own radio show rather than being someone else's sidekick.

WaterBoy said...

Real men ride their motorcycles up alongside bighorn sheep, jump from the saddle, and bulldog 'em like they're steer-wrestlin'.

Vidad said...

Real men light their pants on fire. To cool off.

WaterBoy said...

I don't recall ever looking that road up....

WaterBoy said...

"Real men light their pants on fire. To cool off."

Evaporative cooling.

Nate said...

Waterboy... surely you'll understand if... when I am trying to remember who focused on some minute detail and researched its accuracy... you're name popped into my head.

Josh said...

Ah hell...I forgot to give Vidad shit about his Jager...

Vidad...did you just finish pledging the Kappa Sig fraternity?

WaterBoy said...

No biggie, you could be right...I just didn't remember reading about it.

Good show, though. And the bits about Sturgis were hilarious. Reminded me of the time this friend was visiting from Europe and wanted to check out the nudist hot springs a little west of here. She walked back out after a minute or two and said it was full of fat, ugly, naked people.

But I am going back to listening to the recorded version. There was no end of problems with the embedded JW Player at the front end of the show (I finally had to load it up in Windows Media Player to get it to work), and the end was cut off abruptly -- no TMBG theme song or nothing. And I thought there was supposed to be some kind of chat feature, but couldn't see a control for that either.

Jager???? Huh?

I'm drinkin Wild Turkey.

F: My refinished Mosin-Nagant. Stripped the commie finish off of it and applied about a few dozen layers of boiled linseed oil. It's silky, and loud.

T: English pipe tobacco.

Fag.

My brother, Mr. Purple Heart, drinks Jager. So I buy it for him.

Normally I stick to Shirley Temples. With extra grenadine.

That's awesome. I have a Mosin-Nagant but haven't done anything to it. It's a freaking amazing gun. Blew through 8" of solid oak with it.

Vidad said...

BTW, for those of you that think Jager is somehow not manly enough for your little alpha-desiring psyches: it's a hard liquor made for German hunters. And there's a sizable percentage of folks that think it has deer blood in it.

Enjoy your corn. This is good enough for me. And my Schwinn.

Russ said...

Good show by the way. Keep it up.

A: Wild Turkey Rare Breed

T: Some kind of Padron box-pressed (I'll have to look at my invoice). Tasty.

F: Ruger Security Six 357, blue

Heh. Sturgis.

toothy

Nate said...

Six

Its not that we don't think Jagr is manly. Its just a huge frat thing here in colleges... so it has that association.

I've never actually had the stuff.

Mt Rushmore looked big to me. Of course, I was 5 at the time. What I liked much more when my dad dragged us through the West was seeing places like Yellowstone, the Painted Desert, Salt Canyon, etc...

It's about time for me to do a similar trip with my family.

And your goats can ride in a trailer.

Here is a good Nate song for his show if he get's choked on a ham sandwich and needs a break.

Nate said...

how'd ya like our Riding through Texas from 3am to noon technique Outlaw?

Outlaw X said...

That was Damn smart Nate.

Outlaw X said...

In August that is the only ride. In Texas it is ten at eleven. In other words what ever the temperature is at eleven O'clock add ten and that will be your high temp for the day.

Outlaw X said...

11:00 AM I mean.

Vidad said...

@Outlaw

That's awesome.

And now for something completely different:

13+ uses for WD40

A few samples:

5. Remove chewing gum from hair
It’s one of an adult’s worst nightmares: chewing gum tangled in a child’s hair. You don’t have to panic or run for the scissors. Simply spray the gummed-up hair with WD-40, and the gum will comb out with ease. Make sure you are in a well-ventilated area when you spray and take care to avoid contact with the child’s eyes.

9. Winterproof boots and shoes
Waterproof your winter boots and shoes by giving them a coat of WD-40. It’ll act as a barrier so water can’t penetrate the material. Also use WD-40 to remove ugly salt stains from boots and shoes during the winter months. Just spray WD-40 onto the stains and wipe with a clean rag. Your boots and shoes will look almost as good as new.

17. Clean and lubricate guitar strings
To clean, lubricate, and prevent corrosion on guitar strings, apply a small amount of WD-40 after each playing. Spray the WD-40 on a rag and wipe the rag over the strings rather than spraying directly on the strings-you don’t want WD-40 to build up on the guitar neck or body.

Nate had some good nature pictures but not like this one taken of a falcon resting in a tree.
