Off to get bike #2

The Palm Desert. The only thing growing out here is wind farms.

Heading out to Mark’s garage in the Palm Desert is like going to a giant candy store. SOooo many bikes…
He has a crazy palette jack that lowers the bikes from the racks.  He brought down BMW #2.  She looks fully complete.  Bummer about the dent in the tank. And bummer,  no title.

BMW up on a shelf. Ummm, yes, i'll take THAT one.

Brought down from the rafters. A new home awaits! Cool palette system huh?

My buddy Matt Grayson secured a van for us to transport this bike back home.  He had his eye on the Honda CL200 (as did I).  He ended up taking it home for a mere $350.  If he didn’t buy it i was going to.

And out of all the bikes out there, i couldn’t get my eyes off of this rinky dink Harley Davidson.  I had to have it just because it is the complete Anti-Harley.  I can’t wait to get it cleaned up and running then to pull up to a Harley gang at a stop light and see the look on their faces.

I see myself headed back there for another bike… eventually.  There are sooo many gems sitting there that i want to get running and ride. Hopefully i can find a home for one of the Triumphs…
