Southern Bars

If you like to roll with a sort of double punch to the face of the wind stance (which I do) and you don't care to make handlebars yourself, you may have a use for the craftwork of Frankie Bowman in St. Petersburg Florida.  Find these and several other killer Handmade in America chopper bars here:

Abbey at is orneriest.  Includes the Southwest, Appalachia, love story, tragedy, goat roast, cross country journey, Mozart and Waylon.  His second to last book published in 1988.  485 pages.  Recommended but not to the faint of heart.

Like many Airports in Japan, the Nagoya Airport is a massive man made peninsula made mostly of pavement.  This is because the vast majority of the island is mountainous and difficult to land a 747 on. What isn't mountainous is occupied by people or edible crops.  At any rate a megastructure in the ocean is a perfect place to park an ocean of old custom cars.  This was the Cali Flavor car show.
Thanks to A.G., Yuka, Yang and Hanayo for getting us (my wife and I) there.  Thanks to the Vise Crew for the Nagoya food and beer the night before and the company the day of.

Me: I wonder what made those Russian composers so consistently good? 
Wife: It was those long winters.  Kind of like how the Milwaukee boys bikes are prettier than the Birmingham boys.
