--heavy metal parking lot--

long time ago parking lots
were just open land. in southern
cal lots of em farms, sometimes
filled with trees that made fruit
for a farmer to sell. his memories
of his land were of working that
land, keeping the soil thriving,
keeping his trees free from disease
and producing a product that people
would desire. that was then....

this is now....
warp to sept. 26 2009.
-born free- -motorcycle show-
morph that simple parking lot
into a motorcycle a show. the guys
that put the show on, mike davis, harpoon,
and grant.. worked to make new memories
on that land. thriving with panheads,
knuckleheads, pre-units, far out choppers,
low key jammers, and works in progress.
and producing a bike show that the people
would desire.

personally i slept 3 hours in two days
trying to finish the bike i was building.
kick started it at 5:08 am put it in a van
at 5:30 am. dorve the 400 miles.
arrived at the show 7 hours later.
threw up in a bush. got the shakes.
...hung out at the show for six hours,
loaded the bike back up and drove another 7
hours home getting home shortly after
midnight. i have a problem. and am well
aware of it. luckily my friend chris i went
down there with has the same disease.
... and when we arrived at the show there
were dozens like us. the ones that were up
for days.. hands bloodied, frantic and
frazzled. but all there for the same reason
the love of choppers.

* note ALONZO above pictured with jedwards
lost his new born son only days before the
show. i cant even imagine the heartache he
feels. an amazing dude, really cool he made
it. nice talking with you alonzo, thanks.

thanks to everyone the helped
put this thing on and all those that
got off the couch to attend it.
..... to everyone that wore their 4Q
shirts--> i love you for that.
