And The Winner Is?

FabulousBlogAwardAs much as I hate chain letters, I feel I must complete what has been bestowed on me. While it was cool Clutch and Chrome listed me as one of their “cool blogs” this one means a lot more since it was you, the reader, that have awarded it to me. It’s nice to know that you have enjoyed what i write. Having said that…

The rules for the “Fabulous Blog” award are:

    1. You must pass it on to 5 other Fabulous bloggers in a post receiving the award.
    2. You must include the person that gave you the award, and link it back to them.
    3. You must list 5 of your Fabulous addictions in the post.
    4. You must copy and paste these rules in the post.

So second things first, I’ll get the easy part out of the way first. I was lucky enough to have three of you wonderful people award me the Fabulous Blog and they are KT DID, Ms. BB’s Road Trip and that nut job Dr. Wrench. Thank you all. If I missed someone I’m sorry I missed it and I say thank you to you too.

My five Fabulous addictions are pretty simple:

  1. All motorcycles and riding. I think that goes without saying.
  2. Drag Racing… this is another DUH thing for me.
  3. I’m a sucker for pretty face. They make me do all kinds of stupid stuff!
  4. A good cold beer with friends.
  5. Camel Filters

Now for the hard part. I really hate to have to choose just five great blogs I read and enjoy. It’s safe to say that if you are in my Blog Roll you are already one of my favorites and you have a Fabulous Blog. With that said and in no certain order…

  1.  Ride Far. Mark is living a dream and having a great time doing it. At this time he is adventure bike riding in Africa. Great writer bringing life in another part of the world to the web that can only be seen from the seat of a motorcycle. 
  2. Two Wheels and an Engine. I’ve got to ask Earl. How in the world did you come up with the name “The Vampire Duck” for your blog? Earl is a simple man I can relate to.
  3. Twisted Roads By Jack Riepe. This is a mans man blog. If Jack doesn’t offend you ladies you just might find that Jack is a fine writer. I must warn you though and in Jack’s own words: “Warning I Say Fuck A Lot.”
  4. Motor-Heads Unite. What kind of motor head hot rod guy would I be if I didn’t include a blog about hot rods? Ms, MHL finds and posts about some of the finest hot rods from the days-gone-by. Hubba Hubba. One of these days I will figure out why her link doesn’t update or work in the blog roll. Update: Anyone wanting to add Ms. MHL’s blog to your blog roll use this URL. Thanks to Ms. MHL for figuring out the issue.
  5. Musings of an Intrepid Commuter. If Iron Dad isn’t chasing down some owner of a motorcycle sitting in some parking lot he is writing about riding lessons. Being a motorcycle riding instructor he always has a good lesson to learn. He also rides rain or shine, like someone else I know.He’s got a damn big ego too, almost as big as mine :)

One last note. since last year was a Leap year I guess I will celebrate on March 1st instead. One year ago today I posted my first blog. Although I was using another service at the time, I think it still counts. Don’t worry you didn’t miss anything. All of the posts are in the archives here.


PS Happy Birthday Mom! I love you.

I really enjoy your stories and we have to meet this year since we do live in the same town and all! :) Recognizing me at Waterfront doesn't count because you didn't come over and say hi!

Happy Belated Blogging Birthday and congrats on the Fab Blog award and Clutch and Chrome Cool Blog award. Keep the words coming!


Willy D said...

Nut job? Thank you for the compliment:) I always enjoy your stories. I may not comment on everything, but I’m always lurking in the background ready to pounce at the first opportunity.

Happy Blogging Day and many mooooore!

Congrats on your award. LOL on the chain letters - I hate them too. Like you, I made a rare exception in this case.

I have the same problem trying to put MHL's blog in my blog roll too. I wonder what the story is with that? If you ever figure it out, please let me know, and vice-versa of course.

Dean "D-Day" said...

Ditto on MHL's blog not working. Let us all know if you figure it out.

Happy Bloggaversary!!

Congratulations! Marking your One year Blogoversary with a Fabulous Blog Award is priceless! You have great stories and I enjoy visiting here when I can. Way to go!

Thanks for the recognition Fasthair, like Dr. Wrench said, I may not always comment, but I'm always reading.

As far as "simple", I like that. I've lived by the K.I.S.S. philosophy for years, it's nice to see that somebody notices.......and appreciates it.

As for the Vampire Duck thing? Maybe explaining that would be a good idea for a post over on my blog. I've always kind of wondered if anybody ever noticed that.

Ride Well

Mr. Joker & Dean: Sent you an email on how to fix MHL's link in your blog roll. I'll post the new URL here for anyone else who wants to fix/add her most excellent blog to their site. Got to thank MHL for the help on this one.

Ms. IGH: We really do need to do that. I would like to meet Rick and his lovely wife too. So maybe one of these days soon once the weather gets to be spring like we can make it happen and enjoy a Shasta together.

Dr. W: I figured the shoe fit pretty well. As far as the comments goes, ditto for me.

Ms. BB & Ms. Lady R: Thank you. And Lady R I didn’t plan it that way it just happen to work out that way.

Mr. Earl: Like I said I can relate. Would enjoy seeing a post explaining the Vampire Duck. I’ll post about the state trooper and him being less then happy with me with no headlight in the middle of the night soon.


Dean "D-Day" said...

Excellent! Thanx for the new link.

Jack Riepe said...

Dear Mr. Fasthair:

I am so flattered that you have included me in your list of "Five Great Blogs," that I have decided to take off from work today and celebrate by smoking cigars and drinking fine rum. I have discovered that this combination alows me to focus my super-human powers, required to accelerate the snow melt in the driveway.

Please be advised that I have added your blog to my list of destinations and will profile it in a story this week.

Fondest regards,
Twisted Roads

Mr. Fasthair,

Your blog brings a unique and interesting aspect to things. I enjoy stopping here.

I'm highly honored by making your list!

Motor-head Lady said...

Sir Fasthair...thank you for adding me to the list of the fab blog club. That was a nice surprise and I also appreciate the addition to your blogroll.
I have added a blogroll to my site now and have included many of your fellow bikers because I have grown to enjoy everyone a lot!
The Lady

Dear Mr. Jack:) I'm wondering if you are using the rum so you have to piss more and are going to go out to the drive and melt the snow away? As far as the post about my blog... ah shucks he says looking down at the ground kicking at the dirt. Oh and thanks for writing in :)

Mr. IronDad: I'm not sure what to say other then thank you, those are some mighty kind words. It was my pleasure sir.

Ms. MHL: As I said to IronDad, it was my pleasure to award you this. Nice to see you added a blog roll to your site. I think you will find that you will find even more blogs to enjoy because of it. I'm forever finding new blogs because of other peoples blog rolls. It was also one of the reasons I moved from my old service to Blogger. On behalf on my fellow biking bloggers I thank you for adding them to you fabulous blog.
