21: Wes White (con'd)


Tool you wish you had but don't: A good working lathe and mill  
Tool you have but wish you didn't: The extra MIG welder. The lathe that doesn't work. The big arbor press, the little arbor press



Heaven on Earth: Heaven on earth would be a couple more running bikes for me and some time to work on my own stuff. More time to ride. It isn’t very complicated for me; I don't ask for too much  
Proudest moment: Winning my class at the Grand National Roadster Show two years in a row.  
Darkest secret: I like Hondas

Deepest fear: Those who really deserve it are not going to get it

Biggest regret: No regrets



Reason for being: Riding motorcycles, raising hell. But seriously, I was put here to live a different life, set an example, learn a lot, teach a little  
If I lost my right arm: I guess I would figure something out  
Thanks: Mom and Pops. Good and bad lessons learned, but well learned. Michael Wagener, Mike Doom, Jeff Leighton, Andy Janzen, Mike Parti, David Edwards, Harold McGruther and Bill Bryant

We'll I've known Wes for a while now. Pre Four Aces. We've become good friends. Ride together in the Wing Nuts. Business partners in NLAMC. He spends Christmas eves at my home. He never hesitates to help me out and I'm there for him. But there is something about him I just can't put my finger on and I hope it's not true. When he didn't realize I was creeping around the shop, I heard him speaking French to someone on the phone. He quickly switched back to English when I made my presence known. Wes claims he's a Southern Boy, but could it be the south of France. I hope not. I would be very disappointed if he was French Canadian, but if he's French French, I swear to God I'll burn down his Shop!

Wes high on tequila is always fun too.

Us southern boys stick together, but sometimes it takes a little fire water for our accents to come back.

Wes is sexy as hell!

Hey Wes, any advice on transitioning from world history to the motorcycle industry? I'm an archaeologist who travels all the time, and would rather be home with my new family (1st baby on the way) and my bikes, as i hardly get to ride/wrench anymore?

All what McGoo said and a good dude to boot.

ALTHOUGH, now said you maybe French or have unknown reasons to be drawn into those sorts, well, All I can say is that Ghey pride is on the strong - rainbows forever...

I guess I am gonna have to come clean on the French, now that McGoo has let the cat out of the bag. I was raised by French speaking coon-ass alligators in the Louisiana swamps after I fell out of an airplane over the Bayou.

Wes is a super good guy. I love hanging out at his shop I always learn lots of new stuff, he is like an encyclopedia on any motorcycle related parts or people. See you Friday, Wes.

Commented on 9-22-2009 At 07:36 am

yea man, you shoulda said hello, although I understand the awkward moments at the john are not always the best time to say "hello". We will be there next year though. Loewe, merci bien pour les mots gentilles. Malheureusement, mon langue n'est pas tellement courrant apres tous ces annees. C'etait bien longetemps puisque que j'ai parle regulierement. mais de temps en temps je peux etonner une jeune fille avec ma bouche francaise!!

Commented on 9-22-2009 At 09:41 am

i dont know what the last part says but we should meet up next year.

Commented on 9-22-2009 At 06:10 pm

folly beach!

man, i lived in a cinder block house on the isle of palms for a while in the late '60s. we'd ride motorcycles over rattle snakes in the swamp where wild dunes is now. that little house was still there in 2000, many hurricanes since i'd last visited.

can't tell ya how many moonlight swims we had in what i subsequently learned was the preferred feeding time for sharks.

hope to see ya at born free in orange!

Always quick to answer any question no matter how stupid it seems to be. Thanks Wes.

Commented on 9-23-2009 At 01:13 pm

You learn a little bit every day. Today I learned a little bit about Wes. Thanks.

Commented on 9-27-2009 At 09:31 am

did you see what Wes White wrote on his twitter today?!?!

Commented on 12-8-2009 At 02:22 am

Wish we had one here on Oz !!

Commented on 1-3-2010 At 12:26 am

Wes is one of the most down to earth guys I have ever met. I bought a biltwell helmet from him before EDR 08 and he let me hang around his shop for over an hour ( I was 18 and had never seen so many cool bikes). He always willing to help every time I need a part or have a question. Cool dude.
