Full Tilt Boogie III Wrap Up


Full Tilt Boogie 3 is all done.  Thank you to everyone that came up to Minnesota for the show.  Thank you to all the vendors and sponsors that help support our good times.  Thank you for letting our dirty friends stay at your houses.  Thank you for feeding everyone. There were some bad ass bikes and great people.  There were some great music acts (thanks Rachel, Witchden and Droids Attack).  There were happy party goers that won some cool raffle prizes.  And there were definitely some new friends made.  I am compiling the video footage I shot over the past few weeks and with some help from friends, I will have some visual candy to share of our experiences of the Boogie known as Full Tilt. Also, special thanks to everyone that helped promote our show and those of you that traveled large distances to share the vibe with us.

Next year we will try to outdo all of Full Tilt past.  We will have a new and better Full Tilt Boogie to offer and we are excited to get the train moving on that.  Until then remember to keep two wheels turning and if you see another biker stranded or he needs parts or whatever the case, help him out.  He would do the same for you.  This is the stuff that keeps our obsessions on the road and no amount of chrome or attitude can fuck with that.
Cheers.

Shovelfest VIII Sunday Wrap-up

So the run home was hard and fast, 800 miles in a day. I didn't take pictures, but I do have a story with multiple back stories.

I like to take cheap trips on a cash only budget. I have a debit card and more money in the bank, if I really get into a bind. I don't do credit cards at all. Pay at the pump with a debit card on a bike is a bad idea. For every $12 tank they preauthorize and hold $75 of your money. An eight stop day is $600 held when you only spent like $80.  So I have just enough cash to get there and back and eat and drink and buy a round or meal for someone else along the way.

I was trying to make time with only gas stops when I had to. So there I was, needing gas in West Memphis. I knew this was supposed to be a rough town, but I needed gas and there was a huge Pilot so that seemed safe enough. I stopped. Sure enough, someone approached me with an offer. "I need five dollars for gas to get home and I'll give you this new pack of smokes."

Sure as you're born, he has an unopened pack of Newports or something menthol in a green pack. I would have loved to help him, but I really didn't want to pull my wallet out. He wasn't particularly scary. I didn't want cigarettes. I didn't want to show him where my money was either. I have studied a fair amount of marital arts, but still didn't want to kick someone's ass over a hundred bucks in my pocket or get my ass kicked by one or more guys over a hundred bucks either. I especially didn't want to not have any means to get home either. I politely declined the offer to buy the cigarettes. I really wished I could have helped a person in need though. I don't even really care about how a person got to the point in life where they had a nicer vehicle than me and cigarettes but no money for gas. We have all made bad choices for sure.

Anyway, if I had a do over, I would have and should have gone into the gas station and prepaid for 10 or 20 bucks worth of gas for the gentleman. That would have been a lower risk way to help someone. Live and learn.

Pretty good review and photography from Born Free 7 on this guys blog / website. Check it out if you're into motorcycles and hooliganism.

Shovelfest VIII Saturday Part 6

Tennessee sunset.


The line for Jeff's Bar-B-Que.


Marv and others work to get Kelly's bike back to operational.


The thank you's, announcements, and raffle. The camera was not cooperating at all in these lighting conditions.


Shovelfest VIII Friday Part 4

Does Trish know that Betty is on Tim's Bike?




Len is hot.


JC is ready to kick this party.


Full on kraut.


So I kept calling Peaches Trav last year. Now he understands why.


Shovelfest VIII Thursday Part 3

The THINGS' famous fish fry and shrimp boil, too.


"I have never seen a handle of Fireball before! So smooth and warming."








"See the Android is WAAAYYYY better than the iPhone."


"PEACE"


"HANG LOOSE"


"Man, Todd is totally right."


"This Android is WAAAYYYY better than the iPhone."


"I like my flip phone."






At least there's not fire in this year's show.


"Hey, darlin'."


"Hey, hey, darlin'."


It was a close competition, but I think Dogbone won this staring contest.


Shovelfest VIII Friday Part 1

Good Friday Morning!


Sonny Dukes on hand taking pictures. A real photographer with a camera that's not a phone and that actually cost more than a 100 bucks.


"See how nice this Cannon is? Much nicer than what I used back in the day."


Time to wrench.











Shovelfest VIII Friday Part 3

"Yep." "Yep." "Uh-huh."


I finally managed to return Wild Bill's screwdriver that I borrowed from him in Fatteye, IL two years ago. I saw him later and he said he lent it out again before the weekend was out.







These parts bins and stump were just minding their own business and Slabside Mike decided to back over them for no particular reason.


Chows on.






Knucklebucket and me.
