Picture Puzzle

So Snorkey and I were hanging out. We made this. See if you can figure out what the hell is going on here. If you get stuck, just pull it on to your desk top and then in to the photo browser of your choice and rotate it 180* (or just flip your screen over, or just tilt your head).

It was this or a scantily clad woman. I hope you are happy.

Urban Art Vandalism:

Just caught this today on the Seattle Streetart / Graffiti / Stickers / Posters (Pool)

New Jersey!

We can have a team jersey! We went to GoodWill last week and bought up a bunch of solid unprinted Tee-Shirts. The plan will be to generate some designs tomorrow after work at the Tin Hat (all are welcome) and then print them up low-fi style and hand them out. We got lots of colors; Mens, womens styles and sizes. Ring-tees, tank tops you name it. All organic, low carbon, fair- trade, hypoalgernetic and sweat shop free! Let me know if you want one next time you see me. I'll make a point of keeping some with me at all times. I think I have enough for everyone. I think once we settle on a design (or two) we should have a print/ride party!

BunnyHawk - Hang Out

Last night a few BunnyHawks hung out at Redwood.  I must say, you kids are awesome and super nice.  I'm glad to be a part of this.  I know I'm looking forward to more rides and new friendships with all of you.

I know this is mega dorky, but I really like this photo of everyone's bikes:

ThanksGiving


So first off, how about the weather we have been having. Unbelievable! I love this city. It knows when enough is enough and it backs off for a few days to let the sun shine so we don't all just melt in a clammy pool of slothfulness and oblivion.

Indeed it seems like the gods look favorably on the BunNyHawkS. We should thank them.

We should also thank all of the people that helped us along the way. All of the bar tenders and waitresses and cops/federal building employees and convenience store owners that put up with a twenty headed octopus with wheels for arms and beer cans for mouths such as us. All of the folks in China working so hard to crank out enough "fiowcwakows" to slake our unquenchable thirst for things that go "Bang...Bang-Bang" and the First Nations people that march against the grain of our state laws and exploit land treaty loop holes to sell them to us. Lets thank beer and fortified energy drinks.

Lets also thank all of the new comers who rolled out with us for the first time. Those of you with experience with this sort of group ride kinda stuff, thanks for sharing your skills. Those of you who may have rolled out for the first time... Thanks for your courage and welcome to the mean streets. Don't give up you are free now.

"BuNnYHaWkS fu'eva...duh!"

best watch yo back

People are out there just TAKING BIKES from those who would promote democracy, human rights, and civil rights rides.

Poor Jimmy Carter sans bike. Gotta hand the dude credit for being 84 years old and still riding.

Tip for the day

Put your gloves in the same jacket pocket as a pack of cinimon gum for nice smelling gloves.

What We Do


Sometimes when you work in a bike shop you can forget just how significant it is to be doing whatever it is that you do. But all you have to do is think back to the time when you didn't do what you do and remember how important all the yous were to you before you became the you you are now. Now you have all the knowledge and skill to do all the stuff that you had to rely on you for. Just think how happy the yous made you when they would share their knowledge and help you get better at all the stuff you loved. You needed you to help. You loved you...

Profanity

So those of you who follow BSNYC might recognize this. So first, sorry for the shameless borrowing from a no longer esoteric source. I promise to be more obscure from now on.

The truth is that I suspect that there are a few bunnyHaWks out there that that need a more viceral reason to "embrace" the computer as a form of "expression". In that light I've decided to periodicaly post a tittilating tidbit under the heading "Profanity" in the hopes that it will draw in those that are suspicious of non flesh toned pixels and encourage them to take part in the communication revolution that will be so heartily bolstered by their creative and insightful additions.


(Blaise this is for you. We apreciate all that you do.)

history of mama bearmeat's bikes pt. 3


Upper right. 1976 Huffy Bicentennial commemorative metal flake red, white & blue with banana seat. Cruised the dirt road along Grand Canal & jumped home made ramps like Evel Knievel.

Plaid pants, earth shoes, harvest gold suburban house in Glendale AZ, avocado green bike to match the avocado green appliances in the house. Must be 1974!

meet my old new love


I've been nagging bunnyhawk bearmeat about helping me find a classic street bike to fill the bike shaped hole left by my beloved 1963 marigold orange Peugeot that carried my drunken-stoned-tripped out long-haired ass through the humid oak-lined brick streets of Gainesville 1988-1991. I've cruised bike stores and craigs list and today I answered an ad for a classic Schwinn - $75. I went to see it tonight and bought it on sight. Mostly original except for the cruiser handle bars it is in super sweet shape for a bike that is 44 years old. According to the website Bunch O' Bikes the serial number indicates it was manufactured in Chicago July 19th, 1965 http://www.bunchobikes.com/serialnumber4.htm . I love that my new old love has a birthday and that we were born 2 years apart (I am a May 19th, 1967 model made in Florida). It's got a leather seat and a virtually unscathed bronze paint job. All the labels look like they were just applied last night. It's a mature, substantial, and confident bike which is also how I like men.

Naturally I am shamelessly soliciting advice on restoring this sturdy old guy. Fire away.

Civil Rides


The date and time are set. The course has been designed for maximum fun. In case you missed the memo, everyone needs to forward this URL to everyone on the planet.

http://sites.google.com/site/civilridesmovement/


Who is on fliers? Can we use this image for some spoke cards? Karl? Someone with a desk job must have a color laser copier and a laminater right? Blaise, Can we get some more Tee-Shirts?

Lets Get Ready To Rumble!

The Man

Dear BunNyHawKs,

I wish to bring to your attention that The Man is on to us. Officer A. Stuart cited me for RCW46.66.050, "Fail to obey traffic control device, bicycle, $103." I, therefore, have been officially welcomed to the dirty, dirty lie that is free biking in Seattle.

I entreat all of you to be warry of the Burke-Gilman and Brooklyn Ave crossing. Yes, yes, the one with the giant fucking stop signs, that one.

Good hunting,

Dave

bunnyhawk claims 2009 downhill scooter world record!

The new year brought great honor and pride to the Bunnyhawk tribe. As dusk fell on Port Ludlow, Bunnyhawk squirrelmeat careened down Olympic Ridge Drive. Defying death at speeds in excess of 9 miles per hour, squirrelmeat made history, and snatched glory for Bunnyhawks everywhere. Vanquishing three opponents (one 20 years his junior), squirrelmeat smashed the previous world record by 15 seconds, piloting the rusty scooter through the windy course in a mere 2:55 seconds, despite nearly being disqualified for arriving at the competition in crocs.

Huzzah!



Huzzah!

THIS is actually how we help each other.

I think Dom has a good point. If there is going to be a march we should be there. We should support that. Then we should crack a few tall boys knowing we have helped in some small way. Then we should ride around. And then we should ride around. And then we should ride around.

I will start on a web site tomorrow. Everybody should invite everybody else and that way everyone gets invited as many times as there are people on the earth.

I like this collage it made me want to type.

12 Days and counting...

Until CIVIL RIDES MOVEMENT.

Do you believe in equal rights? Well how about PROVING it with an equal RIDE? Everyone is welcome.

I say we either meet at 11:30 at Cal Anderson, or we make good and damn sure we intercept the march on their way to the federal building. Any thoughts?

March
(12pm). This year we will March from Garfield High School to the Federal Building. Immediately after the March, food and refreshments will be served at Garfield's lunch room free to all participants!

So bunnies stay on the ground. BUNnyhawks however, fly. Realy fly. Ski bunnies also fly. and ski bunnyhawKs fly the most. That's right the buNnyhawks were out on the slopes all weekend. Saturday and Sunday. Bunnyhawk deep search party yesterday out and up Gold creek for some back country recon. "who says the avalanch danger is high???" Yours truely was buried several times but not snow landing on me more like me landing deep in the white room. "The Wife" a string of epithets and explitives as she was also pulled under several times by the dreaded "SnoSnake". Which all made for an excelent warm up for todays live fire exercise as the SnoBunnYHawks were flying in eschelon on a training /targeting mission high above Mount Rainier. Shaking out the jets as it were, keeping the oil cooled cannons in limber readyness. But seriously the trees up there are out of a fantasy about trees. So much sno-to-be-had. Many trips to the white room have left us all in the pain cave. BunnyHaWks fly. Fly. and Fly again. From the high peaks to the mean streets...We help eachother!!!! (thnx Lauren)

BTW, whats with snoWpocalypse IV???!!!
