Thanks to all who rode the long way down to Corn-valley this year. Wet and Windy but thanks to Hayden and Kya, all our gloves were able to dry out in between stops! Lovely motos and a break of sunshine! 225 miles!
Okay so this is a little overdue. Tammie and I went to Austin and the city decided to throw us a kool ass goodbye party showcasing kustom ratrods and bikes along Congress. Check out some of the pics, very bad ass. As soon as my garage is full of bikes I will then begin the hunt for that perfect Rat.

Sunday morning I say to myself I'm going to go to the beach. Don't have a plan in my mind of what to do when I get there but my friend said go to Venice beach. I get there, going down the street and I see a CB 750. Then a R/75. I turn down the way there going and I see a line of bikes. From Honda's to BMW's to Triumph's. I pull over and every body is looking at my bike, I'm looking at there's. Start talking to a guy name Scott. We are the Vince Vintage Motorcycle club and every 3rd Sunday of the month we have a big ride. You should come.
So we all ride to a place called Neptune net a sea food bar. A couple of us split off and ride up the canyons. Its was awesome. It was like German town road for hours and the view was stunning. The vvmc also have a motowednesday were 10-15 people show up and bar hop. Went to that had fun but its no motothursday. Will post some more photos. Lots of cool bikes.
As you all know I've suffered through a terrible accident. I've lost my right leg below the knee due to the negligence of a cage driver.
It has been a struggle to come home... And everyday is a struggle. I deal with an incredible amount of pain on a daily basis.
As I continue forward, my heart and my soul will be out there on two-wheels, in the twists and the sweepers with all of you... I value everybody I've met through MotoKafe. I consider you all friends and riding partners. That is why it pains me to write this post. This is my last post on MotoKafe, and Moto Thursdays are now in your hands. Please feel free to follow me with my recovery and cool-ass motorcycle shit, and what ever else I am into at any given moment, check out my new blog:
Meet up at Jim's garage tonight 7:30, WITH SPECIAL GUEST MIKE HALICI!!! (that means you have to show up, Mikey, otherwise I' m a liar.) A bit of wrenching, new bikes, hanging out, shootin' it. Then moving on to wherever the night takes us.
Here I come. I will be flying in this Thursday. To ride with the gang. The first thing I will do is go see Rich of course and bring him a miller and THE BIG NAP sandwich and I don't give a rats ass if your not supposed to drink. unless you want a 6 pack of miller hooked up to your I.V. line then you will drink a cold one with me. If any one would like to go just give me a ring, if not i will see you for MotoThursday.
Sunday, April 8th. One Day, 500 miles, 12+ hours.... it is NOT AWESOME! Do not show up at 5:00am, do not pack extra cloths, snacks, water and cash, do not come expecting an amazing route through unknown territory, do not come for the socialization with motorcycle enthused, friendly people. I'll not be going to bed early and will not be tossing and turning with excitement and anticipation for the event I'll not be joining.
This is not in anyway, reverse psychology. -Not Rampage
