Reach Out And Touch Someone

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


Back in the early 60's, there were some bike builders that were always trying to out-do one another. One that sticks in my mind was two builders trying to fabricate the longest front end that could still be driven. It had a turning radius of 26', and a front springer length of 12'... Too-o-o much... Way-y-y too much!


***Note from Kerry:
Do you use a mechanical pencil Jim? It sure looks like it, it's such fine work.

Iron Horse

...One More Iron Horse for the trail...

...One More Iron Horse for the trail...

I think it would surprise some, as it did me, that a rigid frame with extended forks (or springers) rides surprisingly smooth! Now... if it only had a decent seat!


***Note from Kerry:
Gosh Jim, the detail that went into this drawing is just awesome. I hope I never take your artwork for granted.

King & Queen Road Burner

The 'open road'... What better life is there? A pencil and a smidgen of imagination and there you have it! A spine compactor extraordinaire!


***Note from Kerry:
Jim, by looking at the mechanics, I reckon this would start! Such detail, great drawing.

Indian Rider

This is for my Bud Marty. I seem to remember he was an 'Indian Rider' at some time in his earlier life.

Well my friend, enjoy some memories... on me.


***Note from Kerry:
Hi Jim
This is so thoughtful of you! Marty is feeling a little off color lately so you are bound to brighten his day with your gift for him, thank you.

Your drawing is fantastic! It's very appealing with its crisp lines and wonderful detail. I really like it.

Crusin' The Night Away

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


Remember those long summer nights when the local drive-in was a place to show off your Iron? Will it ever make a come-back? One can only plead!

Note from Kerry:
Jim, I loved the drive-in! Kids these days just don't know what they're missing out on. We didn't care what movie was on, it was the place to be.
I can see you showing this baby off!

Compact

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


I don't know about you, but there are just some bikes that seem belligerent when they are just standing still...


***Note from Kerry:
Hey Jim, has the back fender been blown off by the exhaust? Just looking at that seat spells pain to me. Great drawing.

Roadmaster Soft Tail

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


Now THIS is a travel bike. Soft air-ride suspension, two-piece frame, and every other biker's eyes firmly attached to you as you glide past.


***Note from Kerry:
Such intricate great work Jim!

A Mid-Summernight's Dream

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


...Saddle up folks... The road is calling. Wind in your hair, warm desert breeze blowing up the wash and nothing ahead of you but miles and miles of miles and MORE miles...


artist
Note from Kerry:
Jim, you can put that visualization into my head so easily! However, I don't see room for me on that seat. I dunna know how ta ride da bike.
Cool drawing!

Way out West

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


You'd be slingin' some heavy iron riding this little beauty... Too bad it's so far ahead of the pack...


artist
Note from Kerry:
Yeah, ride this into a country town just to see the reaction from the locals. Friend or foe?
Jim, your drawings leave me shaking my head. Welcome back, buddy.

On The Open Road

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


Nothing beats the feel of the air rushing past your face... followed closely by the taste of every flying insect known to mankind!


***Note from Kerry:
Hi Jim
You reminded me of the joke about "How can you pick a happy motorcyclist?" ... By the number of insects on his teeth. (sorry, it's a pretty old joke!)

That's one cool machine, dude!

A Test of Endurance

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


Boy do these ponies look great! It's just too bad that your spine has to get in the way!


***Note from Kerry:
Hey Jim, I'm all for comfort, you won't find me on one of these!

The Tribal Pulse

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


After a ride on one of these little ground-pounders, it's almost a foregone conclusion that when you dismount, you sit down and howl at the moon!


***Note from Kerry:
This is a great attention grabber, Jim. Pretty cool.

Purty

...some things simply don't need purty words...

...some things simply don't need purty words...

Swing a leg over this little filly and you will never have to worry about peace of mind again...


artist
Note from Kerry:
Jim, I'm guessing you know by now that I am not mechanically minded and to me a bike is a bike, and a car a car. However, that doesn't stop me staring at your drawings with my mouth open...

Wild Open Spaces

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


Although I ride a Gold Wing, I've often wondered what a ride on a 'HOG' would feel like? Aside from a compressed spine and saddle sores...


***Note from Kerry:
You've provoked a funny mental picture Jim. Your drawings are amazing!
