Best of 2011

Best Harley Based Custom: The Kraus Motor Co. ACHUMA .........


Best TV News Comment :
From Sun TV Mark Bonokowski  on the climate bullshit propagation from Canada's little eco fascist ....
" Up yours Suzuki !"

Best Used Car Buy :
The 2002 Audi A4 Quatro with the 3.0 litre 220 HP V6.
Available for under 10 grand this is a sleeper four door compact ... actually smaller than a Ford Focus ... that will deliver great fuel economy. That is when you resist the temptation to put the transmission  in Sport Mode and mash the fun pedal. The little bomb has leather heated seats ... a sun roof ... and will cruise all day at illegal speeds on a tank of gas. Top speed is limited to 130 mph by the engine control electronics.

We call her Frieda

Best road trip surprise :

On the summer road trip we had some nice surprises along the way..... Peoria IL was a sleepy little city with a great waterfront walk along the Illinois River. The roadhouse restaurant and tavern just outside Lansing MI off  I94 with the awesome sandwich platters. But the best find was a suprise in Indianapolis at the Speedway Golf Course Clubhouse. Indy has a lot to offer for dining out  but this little clubhouse is so good and so reasonably priced it would be worth while to put it on the trip agenda anytime we find ourselves in the city.



Best beer find :

That nearly empty glass sitting next to the swanky pork chop is "Flying Monkey's Hoptical Illusion" found in the 50 West restaurant in  Guelph ON.   Flying Monkeys.....

More to come .....................

Best Autosports Video :  The Drift Demo-Ride ....
 NSFW


Best property maintenance and landscaping by a friend :

Jed's Farm and Workshop in SW Ontario



Nice Eh?


Best restoration project by a friend :
Jed's 1956 Norton factory race bike ... 500cc twin complete rebuild after a failed Daytona classic bike race bad luck and a grenaded engine.

September 1, 2011

2011 was the 70th anniversary of the Telecaster !

Best Jam of 2011 .... Jan 1,2011

Ok, now I'm a little upset that I didn't win the best property landscaping award, and after Indy spent so much time and uh..."hard" work to make it what it is. Do we at least get an honourable mention? LOL!

Happy New Year buddy, maybe we can corral Mr. Neill for another round of blues and brews....

Ok ... Indy's dog logs get an honourable mention!

We'll see what the new year brings .... I'm hoping Jeff will be around for a visit.

But my main thing this year has to be house renos and the motorcycle projects.
