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.

As I was cutting through the usual side streets of Barrington this morning on my way into the train station I saw something that gave me hope for a new generation of rockers. Dressed in a very cute summer sun dress and climbing out of her Mom’s silver Mercedes SUV in front of Hough Street Elementary School was a very young girl with an electric guitar. She couldn’t have been more than 9 years old. I loved it.
Last weekend I got a chance to go riding with my girl. Her daughter loaned me the use of her sweet paint and off through the trails we went. I hadn't been on a real horse in 20 years, not that I ever was on one very often before that. Man, I loved it. Luckily, this picture is in black and white, because otherwise you would see that the saddle pad and leg protection on this horse was pink. LOL Big thanks to Em for letting me ride Paisley. She was awesome :)
