This started out to be a Santa carving, but the guy looked more like a biker, so it went that way. Next came the motorcycle and I was going to build one like my truck, wagons, etc. BUT this was a carving, so I ventured off on thin ice and carved it. The “blond” was needed to fill the back seat and so another carving was started. Then the details started popping up and up and UP. This has proved to be one of the most taxing carving I have ever done, but it was fun. As a life long motorcycle rider this will find a place on a shelf in my shop. Carved from Russian Lipa, Apple acrylics.

Love it! This is the best thing I’ve see all morning! You always put lot of detail into your work Doug! The old guy appears to be drinking while driving; and are you sure you weren’t thinking of Dolly Parton when caring the rider? LOL! Great work and worth a place on your shelf!

I couldn’t help notice how busty the back seat driver was, no wonder she is leaning back. LOL.
Good thinking on your part and it turned out great. I know a lot of bikers that would love this.
