Motorcycle Make-Out

a1Did you ever have anyone ask you
to describe yourself
in 10 words or less ?

I think a lot of folks
would have a problem with that one.

But not me.

And one of the first words out of my mouth would be:

Motorcyclist” .limit

I’ve been riding them since I was 13,

which means
I’ve been a motorcyclist for …..

ummmm……

…… well, for some years now.

And believe it or not,
1944people were riding them
well before even I started.

Ahem.

Yep–

the first motorized vehicles for personal transport were motorcycles.

There’s lots of great old motorcycle postcards,

but today,

since we’re edging ever closer and closer-
— to that special time of year —

— to that special holiday
that’s all about love —

( You know the one. )oughter

So,
I figured I’d post stuff that had at least some connection to:

cuddlin’,

caressing,

cooing,

and canoodling, too.
blindfold
Yeah, sure–

Of course ,
people most certainly do that stuff,

— and much more —

ON motorcycles —

But that’s not really what I mean.

Motorcycles have always meant
different things to different folks–

Depending on who you talk to. fast

They can represent:
danger,
freedom,
excitement,
counter-culture,
romance,
irresponsibility,
individuality,clicked
sexuality,
risk,
…. even violence.

And somehow,

They still make pretty good subjects for:
Posters,
Christmas cards,
Valentines Day cards
and just generally cool postcards.

quartsMy goal was to find some unusual stuff,

— that you wouldn’t see every day —

And generally,

I think I might have hit the mark with these cards.

Still,

I have the feeling–

that there are some more really cool vintage cards out there somewhere —

If you have any from 1950 or before on this subject,

onne— send me a scan!

Oh, well,
hell,

send me anything you want,

and I’ll find a place for it,

somewhere…. 😀

HOY!

workPS– a note to our regular readers:

I’ve never asked for a million readers —
— or awards —
or to make money on blogging —

I don’t want anything like that.

All I’ve ever wanted was to find a few folks
that could enjoy what I enjoy,
and share some fun and ideas with them.

I have that, here — with you.

— so thank you, every single one of you.

Thanks much for reading, submitting, and supporting the Muscleheaded Blog, y’all.

I appreciate you !!!
