Last post

This blog actually started in 2007, was abandoned, then restarted properly in March 2008, almost exactly five years ago. In that time, it has attracted 1,102,561 page views. Yeah, I know.

It's not the best or coolest out there, but it has been consistent: I've tried to post something on most days. And this funny little page has become home: a bit shabby, with a few jobs I've been meaning to do for years but never got round to.

But now it's almost time to say goodbye.

And what better music to pack up my stuff to than the sound of a freshly-built Shovelhead, pipes barking against the dead quiet of freshly fallen snow: Terry Godschalk's VL/Shovel, beautifully (and bravely) photographed by Brad at ZON, and soon to be featured in the all-new GKM.

Final news tomorrow.

Can't blame you, Guy. Like you said, you almost feel "obligated" to post something every couple days.It gets to be another job almost. Besides, we all do these blogs for everybody for free, so you're under no obligation to anyone to continue on if you feel it's run its course.

Thanks for what you've put up for everybody, I always visited here every couple days. Don't delete it though, just leave it up.
