I remember when.........

I remember when I had a bike shop..... just south of Cincinnati one of my best tech's was Shoeless JOE



He could fix anything using only his tiny hammer .....




and FIRE..........



OH I had another tech he was a whizz on licence plate bracket
helmet holders..........




A true craftsman....... the pictures don't due him justice



I had people stop by the shop from time to time




We would have lunch........




After lunch there would be singing marvelous singing......



and impromptu marriage proposals




and there was precision parking drills..........




It's a shame I lost that shop in the Blizzard of 2008..........

Re: I remember when.........

Wow, I can name almost every one: Kim, Joe, Howard & Mike. But, not the bride-to-be!

Have a safe riding season everyone!

My friend Nancy was in one pic. And that's Howard's wife Lisa on the LT. I'm not sure she ever did say "Yes" to this day.

Re: I remember when.........

Great photos and an even better post, Kim. Thanks. It sure brings back some nice memories.

"South of Cincinnati"? I thought we were way east and a little north of Cincinnati...

I saw Bob Darkey in one of those photos; he hasn't been on this site in ages. I heard he had a crash on his LT and got hurt, but was on the mend. Anybody heard from him?

Those pics were taken almost 2 years ago! We have GOT to have another Tech Session. The banner is hanging up in the garage and I'm gradually working on getting rid of the junk we "inherited" recently. Anybody up for a spring Tech Session in Fairfield County, Ohio?

What a minute, almost forgot that I had a great 24K golden service wrench day at CCR!
I'll still come to share my knowledge of bird seed in the air filter from my pet mice and rid'n the LT through hotels!

He and I stay in touch. He's doing great. Talking about getting another bike this Spring. Probably a Gold Wing.

Excellent - thanks for the update. His Wing would be welcome at another Tech Session!

We have several, from many angles. Uncle Rock did a great job behind the lens.

And one of those is on permanent display at BMW of Columbus (AKA "Motohio").

We are overdue to put up another photo like that in our local dealership.

Re: I remember when.........

Hey Guys & Gals!!!
Are these pics from both sessions??
I missed the second one that season at Howard's (in the boundry waters)
but I don't remember a fire pit, and that line up includes my bike.

Either way come on Howard...Although I know you've got a lot going on at your place and all would understand!!!
Wherever it ends up ,count me in.

Great time!!!!

Mike

Hey Mike,

We had tech sessions on 6/17/06 and 8/19/06 (right before CCR) at my place. You attended the first one, and I'm pretty sure that's where the LT line-up photo was taken. We should have taken the same photo at the second session because by then Joe had his new GT, and an '04 GT was there, too.

There is something very cool about seeing bikes lined up like that. Here is another shot, with the Rogue's Gallery standing by their bikes. Jim Scioullo was on his way out so his LT is not pictured.

The second photo is a favorite -- you are saying "WTH have you done to my bike?!!"
