New flyer for the Issue 13 Release party. Again want to thank the new sponsors that have jumped on board. I can't thank you enough for the love and support. It's so rad what Eric Wheatley did using one of my photos of my friend Bob M. Just really amazing work. Below is the photo he based the flyer off of. Just so rad! Bob's Iron is featured in Issue 13 from this shoot as well, so this flyer makes it extra special for me.
I have a new feature up on Chopcult right now on my friend Mike's new shovel build "Smokey". Click the link above to check it out.
Meeting Mike and his team for the first time, it was like meeting dudes I already knew. No judgments, no ridicule, just welcomed me in with open arms like I was part of their group from the beginning. We jumped on our bikes and ripped around Toledo most of the day, had some lunch, and they even helped me weld up my sissy bar that snapped on a previous run.
Riding along side Mike on his freshly built master piece of a shovel head was a real treat. It was a cold October day but it didn't matter, it was just too much fun to see "Smokey" move on the streets and hear the roar of the exhaust. Yet you could put your ear to the engine and not hear a thing when you weren't moving. Just a truly amazing bike.
Seriously a solid group a dudes at Chop Machine. Their craftsmanship on the bikes they build is above and beyond most. Super clean, simple and a super classy 70's style for almost all their bikes! I became an instant fan and admirer of them from just one day of hanging and learning what their vision is.
Make sure to follow them on Instagram and Facebook!

Sitting out on my stairs in front of my side door of my house at 12:30 am a few weeks back, talking about life with my new friend that I literally have known for maybe a whole 3 days.
"I was writing a movie script about a guy building a pan head, his wife was in full support of everything and when the bike was completed they rode for a month straight. Happy as can be. The wife suddenly ends up dying from an unknown cancer and they guy sells his house, car, every worldly possession but the pan and just rides across country city to city to tries to find himself.
I was explaining the plot to a really close friend back home and she told me why don't you do that for real Dave! Two weeks later I sold all my shit and hit the road." - Dave Buchanan
An unbelievable story that is true with every word. Meeting Dave has changed my way of looking at humanity and has shown me there are still amazing human beings out there in this great land we call America. To sell everything, pack up a sissy with only the possessions you truly need to survive and ride cross country with no real plan other then to ride everyday and find work here and there is everyone's dream. Well he's living it.
Literally 2 minutes into hanging with Dave I instantly grew attached and knew he was a genuine, honest, and radical dude that could party and be down to have real life conversations not just small talk to impress some one into making them feel cool. The dude knows who he is and isn't out to prove anything to anyone other then make his life his own! Pretty epic.
His story is incredible, the journey he has taken and the journey he is going to continue is truly amazing to follow. I can't wait till he writes a book and puts it all together.
I'm honored to call Dave my friend and glad he came into my life. It's going to be sad to see him gone. I know I'll run in to him a bunch though, as long as we have motorcycles and there are roads I know I will cross paths with him again someday soon.
Good luck on all your travels dude and stay safe! Luv ya!
