JOIN CAPONE'S ROCK MAFIA CHARITY RIDERS MC
Throwback Thursday.. way back.. and my early hot rods. LOL Here I am with my latest upgraded design for taking on the hills. I added a slightly flexible top for a more comfortable ride and better angle on the front steering. The rear tires narrowed and now tucked under wells to prevent an earlier mishap. The new extended front axle allowed for more room to incorporate feet along with the rope hand controls, wider for a better grip in high speed turns. Notice the lowered rear end. Way ahead of its time here. American Made. Hell Yeah. Merica.
Someone once said, “Music is life”. While that might seem as a very broad description to some rookie players, any veteran would probably nod his head in agreement. Every culture, every generation, every musician, has their own way of interpreting their life, feelings, emotions, pain, and happiness into their own music. By opening your mind and allowing yourself to listen, to really listen, to the many different styles of music that is available, you are allowing yourself to grow as a musician in ways that a narrower minded musician might never understand.
One of my favorite charity rides of the whole year - The Little Angels Pledge Run. Here we are right after the cruise through Northern Illinois farm land. I'm so burnt I look like a Oompa Loompa, but its worth it.
Always one of the best run rides of the year! Big thanks to all of the crew who helped with this super cool event - The Elgin Area Association of Motorcycle Riders, Woodstock HD, and ALL of the amazing volunteers.

Ray Manzarek, keyboardist and founding member of the legendary Doors has passed away in Rosenheim, Germany after a long battle with bile duct cancer. He was 74.
Doors drummer John Densmore wrote: "There was no keyboard player on the planet more appropriate to support Jim Morrison's words. Ray, I felt totally in sync with you musically. It was like we were of one mind, holding down the foundation for Robby and Jim to float on top of. I will miss my musical brother."
Those that had the lucky opportunity to see Mr. Bill Wyman play with the Rolling Stones when they did their 50th anniversary show last year at London’s O2 arena will be the last to see the bass player jam with the band. Bill Wyman played with the Rolling Stones from 1962 until 1993.
“They’d asked me the December before, and I had to jam with them for three days. I was under the impression I was going to get really involved, but when it came to it, they only wanted me to do two songs, which was very disappointing.”
