    Looking bike I hardly rode at all this year. .But had a blast and every time I rode with the guys from Hell on Wheels or went out a mixed it up with the hooligans and the guys at Iron and Resin I went home with a smile on my face, some real " Run What Ya Brung" shit and everybody had a good time

    new years resolution is to get out and ride more next year :freaky

    Don't get me wrong...I love the rides I have done this year for the ride itself, but even more, I appreciate the new friends I have made through riding and the old friends who keep creating memories for the days in the rocking chair on the front porch.

    This is from a ride we did from Tucson to the Grand Canyon and back 90% dirt. Four of the guys shipped their bikes from upstate NY to Tucson to make this trip happen. (where there is a will...there is a way).
