A Little Thumper Sunset Therapy

Yesterday I took the Husky out for a cruise to help clear the cobwebs away from my mind. With each thump of her little heart my mood brightened.

Sure, I know it doesn’t exactly excel at riding around on the street. But, that doesn’t mean it isn’t fun to use it for that anyway. There is just something about the bikes personality, its sound that I love so much. She’s a sexy beast.

I was already on my way back home when the sky just seemed to have a special look to it. Though home was to the left, I made a right and headed for the water. I had a feeling that the sunset was going to be a doozy.

As it turned out, I was right.

Sights from the Road: Art Car Extravaganza!

On Friday night how could I have possibly known that when I spotted the Cupcakemobile in Westhampton that it would be the …wait for it… waaaait for iiiit… icing on the cake? Oh, yes. I just went there.

The weather here lately has been hazy, hot and humid and the threat of thunderstorms seems ever present. This morning I decided that I would sneak out for a quick ride before things got ugly. Even if it was just for an hour, it would be better than nothing.

My loop back towards home brought me past a place I’ve passed a hundred times before. If you’ve been a reader for a while, you just might remember the fruit and vegetable car. But this time, instead of just a single art car gem parked out front – the gravel drive of the workshop held the mother lode.

Art. Car. Extravaganza!

Queen Smoothie, Yummie Mobile, a rocky pickup and the fruit and veggie car? Be still my heart! Aren’t these fantastic?

Make sure you eat your veggies, Dragon!

As wonderful as each of the cars are, I think I love the Yummie Mobile most:

“Kenny, can we get a big pink donut for my car?”

“No.”

:lol:

Do you think he would notice if I got myself some frosted donut hubcaps?

As Seen on TV – The Riverhead Muffler Man Indian

Continuing the tv/movie vibe from my post about the Buzz’s Skelly ~ In the same town of Riverhead is a Muffler Man Indian that was featured in an episode of the Sopranos. I have posted about him before but, every now and again I stop by to say hello.

Muffler Man Indian Riverhead Long Island

With these big fiberglass beauties standing outside and braving the elements year after year – you’ve got to check on them every once in a while to see how they’re holding up.

It’s starting to look like the Indian could use a little TLC. He’s got some cracks in his fiberglass that are giving way to holes and he could really use a fresh coat of paint. I hope the folks at Riverhead Raceway give him a little love soon. It would be a shame to watch him deteriorate further.

Buzz’s Skelly Gas Station – Coen Brothers Filming Location?

Buzz Skelly Signs Riverhead

The Coen Brother’s are currently shooting a movie called Inside Llewyn Davis staring Justin Timberlake. Some of the scenes are set to shoot here on Long Island in the town of Riverhead.

While out riding today, after an off-handed comment by GLantern about an old gas station – I thought I would go take a look. I mean, I love that sort of Americana.

But when I got there, what I saw was too “perfect” to just be something a local was putting up for their own enjoyment. Then it dawned on me…

It must be part of the Coen Brothers movie set. The station doesn’t really exist. It’s on one of the roads set to be closed and well, you can see it’s a false front if you look to the side of the building.

I thought that was a pretty cool find.

Day 21: Serendipity Strikes… And Has Giant Sexy Legs – #29in29

As you motor along through life – each turn, each second that ticks by shapes what will come next. I am of the belief that every step, every decision, every left or right brings you to where you are supposed to be.

While enjoying our extra day off on Monday, Kenny and I rode through the town on Sag Harbor on our way to Montauk. For some unknown reason, I took a different route out of town than I normally use.

Larry Rivers Giant Legs Sag Harbor

I can only imagine it was the magnetic pull of these giant legs made by artist Larry Rivers. I guess we were supposed to see them :)

Kenny wonders why we are parked next to giant legs

“Of course you found a pair of big legs.”
