I like to read, it's good to hear peoples stories. The picture one can paint with words. I've ridden an old chopper cross country, this was not that. But it was a beautiful time in my life and i wanted to try to put some of into words. The imagery is secondary.... It's really all i had because i was pretty wrapped up in the moment. This kind of spoken word deal won't be for everyone, i get it. Just thought I'd try it because it's been on my mind. We could all be the same, or we could be ourselves.... this is a piece of me, it comes from my heart. i spent 6 months building this bike for born free, as you know most bikes get trailered to the show, i get it. It's a show bike, but i really wanted to ride my show bike to the show. I kept that in mind the whole build. I got to do a few shakedown miles, then it was time to bounce. Its only a Little over 400 miles to the show, but that's far enough for things to go wrong, happy to tell you it was all smooth..... it felt really good.
