two wheels brazil volume#2

hey ho let's go to brazil

jason president of ATR, party animal. "Bro... i would drink that whole Jager bottle if it was real"Jason was ready to "move some merch" and was pumped on his new OGIO turbo 360 roller bag. The rain didn't bug him none...his mind was more on the SNOW.. if you're smelling what I'm stepping in.
"you can check your smart ass American comments at the door" this guy makes his own engines (pronounced... ENGINA in Brazil) when we commented on  the size of his Engina, all hell broke loose. Lost in translation.

-This bitch didn't fall off- The dick fell off. I think it's a Brazilian thing. they call this.."riding tranny" the removal of the man part of the male/female riding situation.   Not sure of the size of this Engina.
Full metal LARPage. The girl was later injured while eating a corn dog, not period correct to their medieval diet. All worked out she was resuscitated with an I.V. filled with Grog and turkey leg gravy.

Douche bumps? Aviator Mike was all about this BOSS HOSS. Kick only V8 "big wheel mutha fucka"
"i don't want to get a blood transfusion in Brazil"... was Jason's quote before riding in Brazil. Nothing to do with Aids or Transvestites. It is seriously intense riding in Sao Paulo. Big Up's or Props Or Kudo's to Paulo, Chris, and Ara for piloting these streets.
Ara let me ride my old bike -tears of a clown- while in Brazil. It was quite an experience. Thanks dude. Pictured here with a beautiful gold Joe King Helmet....why i didn't try to steal this helmet is still bothering me.

Jason made the coil go bad on this bike. Everyone was super bummed, he totally blew it.
the tables  have turned... this was a real head turner.

The cars are kinda like punk rockers over in Brazil. People take a lot of pride dressing them up with pointless accoutrements like chains, locks, and tires.
one hand not in his pocket and the other one collecting shells down at the beach.
Poetry, Cafe's at dusk, acoustic key boards, and henna.... this guy is real.
this ad was inside one of the many churches we visited in Brazil. We are 136.
The best dirt skater in South America. No ego and not stoked on him self at all.
Jason pulling in a clean frontside Indy mall grab to fakie. Big Dawgs rule. Chubby plus funny minus cocaine, it doesn't really ad up. But who's counting. Atr's founder and president. Signing Off.
thanks to PAulo, Vivi, Edu, Chris,Dan, Ara and everyone else for having us down.

these days....

written by jackson browne when he was 16.
CRAZY ..........

Well I've been out walking
I don't do that much talking these days
These days--
These days I seem to think a lot
About the things that I forgot to do
For you
And all the times I had the chance to
And I had a lover
It's so hard to risk another these days
These days--
To live the life I have made in song
Well it's just that I've been losing so long

I'll keep on moving
Things are bound to be improving these days
These days--
These days I sit on corner stones
And count the time in quarter tones to ten, my friend
Don't confront me with my failures
I had not forgotten them
