I keep promising a comeback.....

....and every time, it's usually one post followed by at least six months of inactivity. Normally I wouldn't apologize, but if you are out there and you still check this place in hopes that something happens, the least I can do is say sorry. Life happens. And since nearly every one has deserted the blogosphere, it makes it tough to even want to bother to come here and post anything. But I think i've come to the end of my rope. I can't do this chopper scene anymore. It's exhaustingly ridiculous. Every bike looks the same, every "chopper dude" looks the same, and nearly every chopper show is currently sponsored by the company that we all used to hate. WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?!?! 5 years ago we were all flipping our patches and flipping the bird  to the company that turned their backs on us so long ago. So what did they do? Waved a bunch of free Oak Leaf logo t-shirts in front of show organizers  and put a bunch of big time chopper dudes in their ads and suddenly they weaseled their way back into the scene. I'm sorry, but I can't get behind it. It's nothing more than a marketing scheme and you all fell for it. They're exploiting all of you in commercials and advertisements in order to sell overpriced piles of shit, all the while still giving you a huge middle finger every time you walk up to the parts counter looking for replacement parts. It's a joke, and you all made yourself the butt of it.

As for all you period correct dorks, you already know how I feel. If your bike never leaves its own zip code, I got nothing for you. Sell it, you missed the whole point.

Sure I sound preachy. Sure I'm on a soapbox. But if I don't say it, none of you will. The whole scene is crap and "frankly my dear, I don't give a damn." Like I always tell kev, the scene may burn to the ground, I'll still be riding my chopper coast to coast while all the "zip coders" sell their choppers for low riders, speedboats, or whatever trend is the new thing.

So, with all that being said, check back here. I'm over Instagram and am gonna make an honest attempt to update this page more often. Living in Palm Beach county Florida means chopper sightings are rare, but theirs plenty of other good stuff to show. OH! And if you enjoyed our  California trip coverage nearly six years ago, stay tuned. Kev and I are setting our sights on the 100th annual Pikes Peak and then riding to the Redwood Forrest and down the illustrious PCH. Born Fee? Nah. We were there when it WAS ACTUALLY FREE!! I refuse to pay $35 admission to be inundated with Vans and Harley advertisements.

Thanks for watching. Sorry no pictures. My computer finally kicked the bucket and I'm writing this from my mom's iPad. So chopper tough.

Fuel Cleveland Official Pre-Party At Saucy Brew Works

Saucy Brew Works

In the past 10 years the craft brewery movement has taken over the greater Cleveland area by storm. Craft beer brewing hobbyists turning their passions into an opportunity of business and hopes to becoming a staple in the beer industry. Saucy Brew Works is the brain child of Brew Master Eric Anderson and Entrepreneur Brent Zimmerman and first opened it's doors a little over a year and a half ago on July 5th, 2017. Since opening it has been nothing but moving on up for this craft brewery, from partnering with the Cleveland Cavaliers, to opening a second location in Columbus, Ohio and even being distributed in multiple stores, Saucy Brew Works is a true success story. So, when Brent from Saucy Brew Works approached us and asked how they could get more involved with Fuel Cleveland we couldn't have been more excited.


Saucy Brew Works handcrafts all of their brilliant beers in house and have over 16 different flavors to try, there's literally something for everyone. Accompanied by a full bar for your other adult beverage needs, pizza to die for, and a humongous patio, this brewery is perfect to house the official Fuel Cleveland Pre-Party!

Saucy Brew Works is located on the corner of West 29th & Detroit Ave in Cleveland, OH. Their address, 2885 Detroit Ave, Cleveland, OH 44113. We will be throwing a hell of a rager there on Friday July 26th from 8 pm to last call. Make sure to come out early and hang out all night with us! There is a ton of parking options to choose from and we are working on bike parking to be in the front, more details to come on that. We will see you there!
