The Perks of Being Part of a Motorcycle “Couple”

The Perks of Being Part of a Motorcycle “Couple”

Many people who are part of a couple in which both people ride their own motorcycles like to wax poetic about how it’s so great to be able to ride with the person you love most, your best friend, blah blah blah…

Get real. The best part of being in a motorcycle couple is being able to ride each other’s bikes! 😉

Kennys CL 350

Kenny sent me out on his CL today to just run some gas through it. Now that’s the kind of “honey do” list I like!

Your thoughts?

I was busy looking at something else when Kenny came sauntering up behind me and said, “Rach, come look at this. Don’t look at the card. Tell me what you think it is.”

“A DRZ?”

Of course, Kenny was amazed at my knowledge. But the truth is, I just looked at the single and the first thing that popped into my head was – why  would he ask me to guess? Because it would be something relevant to my world. And that is the only thumper in my world.

Don’t worry. I’m not getting all smart on you guys 😉

I love Kenny’s CL. I think he did such a great job on resurrecting it from a shabby, mismatched clunker and turning it into a snappy little spitfire.

Last week, Discovery HD Theater launched it’s new series Cafe Racer TV. Aside from the show itself, they launched a snazzy new website. Part of their promotion machine features a contest in which viewers can submit photos of their bikes for a chance to win some Cafe Racer TV swag. I, of course encouraged Kenny to submit a pic of his red & white beauty.

Part of the premise of contests like these is of course to get participants to encourage their friends to vote on their behalf and thereby bring publicity to the website and show. Kenny’s bike was doing really great until yesterday. He had over 80 thumbs up votes which magically turned in to 18. It seems that an army of people got together to thumbs down his bike. At the same time, another bike more than doubled it’s votes. Dang.

I’m kinda bummed that positive votes can be negated, but it is what it is. He’s still a winner in my book whether I get a free t-shirt or not. Did I say, I? I meant he 😉

I’ll be looking forward to more episodes of Cafe Racer TV and applaud HD Theater for their increasing motorcycle coverage. From their Isle of Man coverage and now this… their on the right track.

I’m so proud of my honey. The Honda CL350 was his first stab at restoring a motorcycle. He’s done such a great job. His bike has been featured on pipeburn.com today! Stop in for a peek, won’t you?
