Family values

No matter how cool you think you are or how long you've been into something there is always gonna be someone cooler and more into whatever than you. Take it the right way and learn from your elders and respect. The guy in this amazing photo is my friend Domenic Mingirulli's dad and his son Dylan's grandpa. "Pappa Joe" is his name and this was taken back in the mid '50s I believe on one of over 360 motorcycles he built! It just so happens to be an outstanding knucklehead. 

His son Domenic is one of the nicest and sharpest guys you'll ever meet and has nothing to prove to anyone. He'll give you the short off his back and help you fix your bike no matter if you just got into it or been there for decades. It's about life, not a scene, or status. It's about learning and sharing and surrounding yourself with people you can learn from and helping those with a will to learn. Perspective is always good and should be in the back of your mind at all times. 

Oh, and Pappa Joe's 19 year old grandson already has a '65 panhead and '66 shovel under his belt and was the youngest invited builder at Born-Free 5...something to think about! 
Do what you love and do it for the right reasons.

My brother nick has been on the road with his softail for quite a bit now. He lives out in Arizona so I don't get to see him much, let alone have a chance to go for a ride. This weekend was another story. Nick was pretty impressed with the panheads highway boogie!

Born-Free 5

What a beautiful day for motorcycles. Who would've thought that a little parking lot show would turn into something that took over 2 hours to get into? Or that 18 men would slave over their own two-wheeled creations only to give them up to chance... I didn't get to take any photos really, there were just too many wonderful people to meet and old friends to talk to, and that's what I enjoy the most about this show, the gathering of men and women from around the world with one common bond, just having a good time.

(thanks Geoff K for the great pic)
