Tommy and Slick hit the road Saturday for the 'Destruction Tour 2008'. They're currently in Jacksonville, FL heading for Miami. After that it's west all the way to San Diego. Homeland Security is currently at threat level: Oh Shit!!

At long last, Andre's KZ chop is on the road. It really came out better than I thought it would and it rides very well. Good power, even with the short pipes and it handles well. This one was a long time coming and I'm glad it's finally done. For a fairly inexpensive bike, there were a lot of challenges in getting it finished, but the end result is worth the work.
So the Smoke Out has come and gone, and what can I say? It was fuckin' great! Despite the 3,000 cops we all had a great time. I ran into Mad Dog on Sat. and he said it's like a family reunion, which is dead on. It's the one time of year that the hardcore elite of the chopper world all come together. It's an event that I'm glad alot of people don't really get. The best bikes, hot chicks, and general rowdiness. Year after year, the only rally I go to and I'll keep going until they put me in the ground. Ed, Jimmy, Bill, Tommy, Newton, Big Mike, Bacon, Skidmark, Katie, Roadside, and everyone else that lent a hand to Bad Monkey this year gets a big thanks.
Here's a shot of Mark with some homemade peach & blackberry 'magic water' that kind of sums up the whole thing. Viva la Smokeout!!!!!

This is my buddy Dan, better known as Bacon. He's from Canada and he rode the Knuckle chopper in this picture down from Ontario, Canada to North Carolina this past week. One day trip, about 14 hours.
This kid knows what all this shit is supposed to be about, if you run into him at the Smokeout, buy him a Coke and check out his bike. He'll tell you all about it.
Alright, The War Machine is complete and on the road. I've got a few more shakedown miles to put on it, but it's going well. Tommy is taking it to the Smokeout in a couple of weeks and then it's on the road for a trip. It seems ambitious to try and hit every gay bar east of the Mississippi, but if anyone can do it, he can.
