Goodbye Droopy

Jeff, Shawn, and myself rode our full show choppers to Droopy's funeral because there really was no other option, Droopy deserved it. RIP. Glad he lived a long full life rich with history. Something to think about.

Our friends over at BLENDS are doing another limited edition Vans shoe and for some reason wanted to use this fat and ugly guy for a "model". I hope the shoes do well despite me!
Here's the video they shot at the Cycle Lodge. The shoes come out in a couple days and I guess are gone within a few hours normally! CLICK HERE to get more info

Meditation 4 Madmen on Born-Free-now with subtitles!

Dan is an old friend and has been doing some great video work recently. He does this because he loves it and finds people that have a story to tell about things they are passionate about.
Mike and I spent two days with him talking about Born-Free and riding our Panheads and this is what he made of it.
Click the CC icon on the video to add subtitles in many languages!!!

The Nash's AARP run

The Nash somehow conned some of us into packing up and going on an overnight ride out to Pappi & Harritte's in Joshua Tree. About 10 of us wound up on the "scenic route" which was roughly 300 miles from Orange County, normally about 100 miles? 
I had never been on any of the roads we took so it was fun for me. Through Julian (stopped for pie), to Boreggo Springs which was the one mistake of the trip (over 100 degrees!), to Idyllwild, to Joshua tree. Took us 12 leasurely hours. 
Had a blast riding the '37 UL, it was a champ! It just doesn't like headwinds. 

Felt good to get out and put a bunch of tanks of gas through a motorcycle!

just a beautiful song

this song appears on Nashville Skyline, but the whole session made it to an ever-elusive bootleg LP, one day i will own that.
