Run With The Wolf

Run With The Wolf t-shirt design

This design was based on a request to deliver a unique design for the 2019 Run With The Wolf motorcycle rally by Kawasaki Concours enthusiasts. I came up with this idea of using a wheel with past design images laid in between the spokes. The title and 25th anniversary were placed on the tire to look like raised letters. Finally, the Concours Owners Group logo was placed in the center.

Cowasaki

Cowasaki

It’s a simple formula; cow + rice burner = Cowasaki. If pigs can fly, then cows can ride.  I’ve seen a few of these type cartoons on the Internet and didn’t like any of them, so I came up with my own version.

Cowasaki

I’m sure glad cows can’t fly

I ride a Kawasaki Concours C14. Wonderful bike and way more power than I will ever need. It just flys down the open slab. I’m not sure which I like better, hang gliding or motorcycling. Each has it’s own rewards and dangers. Each requires great skill and prescense of mind to stay alive. It’s all good.

Taking ownership of a Kawasaki Concours C10

Road Rash Motorcycle Cartoon #2

I agreed to take ownership without a test ride. Owner would not let me take it for a test spin. Would you? Had no idea what I was getting into. I didn’t really know anything about the bike. All I knew for sure was, I wanted a big bike with a fairing and a lot of power.

Taking ownership has hidden surprises!

Driving the motorcycle on the way home, I discover problems. The bottom of the tank had a slurry of rusty water and the owner said the tank was topped off. It wasn’t. I ran out of fuel on the way home. I found myself coasting down a big hill until I found a gas station. Lucky me. After getting home, I proceeded to learn the truth about the bike.

My second motorcycle

Road Rash Motorcycle Cartoon #1.

My first motorcycle was a Honda CM400T. Wish I still had it as it was not a powerful motorcycle, but it was a lot of fun to ride. I rode it during my college years, then stopped riding until many years later. A friend of mine bought a BMW and that reignited the spark that got me back into motorcycling. After college and getting married, I started looking around and sure enough, I started bidding for a Kawasaki Concours ZG1000 motorcycle on eBay. That was a mistake.

I noticed the mileage on the odometer and immediately purged myself from the bidding. In the end, I purchased a used Connie (C10) from a local seller. Soon after I purchased the bike, I joined The Concours Owners Group and became member #4090, where I am an Industry member even today.
