You know I'm a parking lot kinda guy. The show bikes (at whatever event?) are always polished and blah blah blah, but the bikes in the parking lot are what draws my attention. Little Yamaha Chop at the VVMC Rally 9/14/2013.

Issue 59 will be upon us very soon and it is in collaboration with our friends of many years, Biltwell! I'll never forget the first time met Bill & Magoo. It was on the El Diablo Run #2. We had arrived into San Felipe later than everyone else and the camp ground was already rocking and the alcohol was flowing big time! As soon as we stepped in a guy ran past me with his hair on fire after throwing gasoline onto the bonfire and it went wrong. I thought, "Hell yeah this is going to be wilder than I thought!" I asked Matt who that mental guy was and his response was; "That's Magoo, he's one of the organizers." Holy shit! Turns out I had actually seen Bill too at the same moment, I just didn't know it. Turns out he was the guy running after Magoo taking photos. It's been true love ever since. We will celebrate the release of this issue this coming Saturday with 2 parties! Check out the flyers for the pre-party and party party! We like to party.
I headed out as the sun was setting. The roads were wet so I tied a bandana around the front forks to soak up most of the spray.
With some snow still visible along the edges, combined with the fact it wasn't raining, the wet, reflective roads trick your mind into thinking it's ice. Thankfully it wasn't, and I remained happily upright.
When I got back, the bike was filthy. Knowing I was likely riding around in a mix of snow-melting salt and chemicals, I actually washed my bike today (something I rarely do).
A December ride in Minnesota is quite rare. Now the only month I haven't ridden here is January but I have a feeling that one will continue to elude me.
This dude Atom crashed his bike about a week ago and still had the balls to hobble his broke ass into the shop to hold the First Annual 24 Cycles Toy Drive he'd been planning for the last month!
Here's a couple pics from the event. Thank you for putting this together Atom / 24Cycles
Damn if that isn't hundreds of toys! So happy to see that people didn't just be "a" unwrapped toy, but they brought out bags full of toys! Amazing. Thank you so much, everyone who donated at the event AND those who dropped off toys last night at the Gasser Lounge collection. Every toy will go to a needy child and that's better than anything else I can think of doing on perfect "Summer-in-Winter" Saturday with my motorcycle under me!
