Trying to raise a little more money for the bandsBLACK ACTRESSandLORD (Chicago)who are playing the Friday night of Violation Tour in Savannah, IL. If anyone wants to make a donation send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Any help is appreciated. We also might be doing another press of VT shirts. Let us know if you still need one and if we have enough interest we will print them. Get your bike out on those last shake down runs and get ready for another year of Violation Tour.
Violation Tour Research and Development team of Chris and Chris took one for the team this past weekend and got probed my Officer Unfriendly. Although, I think he was just jealous that he wasnt cruising around in a sweet machine.
In all seriousness, we headed west to Savanna to smooth things over with Jerry and to finalize the details for Friday nights VT party. Jerry is one gracious host and is helping out with putting the bands up with a place to stay and some good eats. After a much needed brewski and a ticket from the po po we ran up north to pick up a super secret motorcycle for Slims new chopper project. All in all it was a productive day and the El Camino ran good despite the horrible gas mileage.
We proudly present Chicago's very own Black Actress to headline the show on Friday night at a new bar in Savanna IL called the Man Cave. http://youtu.be/MWIZCx5ePe4
My good friend Darryl Rotten from www.lostcauseengineering.blogspot up in Madison, WI did a really amazing paintjob on my chopper tank. I gave him some photos on one that I already kinda liked and the colors I wanted and he did a really badass job on it. If you need something painted get ahold of Darryl through the blog. Thanks again dude, it means alot to have ya paint this.
VIOLATION TOUR and DARK HORSE present a viewing of 2 motorcycle documentaries.
6OVER The Movie. Trailer at http://vimeo.com/28742074 A film about 6 people who love and build motorcycles. Not much else to say really except that it has taken a lot of heart and soul from Michael Schmidt, Davey Cooperwasser, Matt & Dean at DiCE and everyone that is in this film...Jeremiah Armenta (Love Cycles), Kim Boyle (BCM), Eddie Cleveland (Chun), Caleb Owens (Cro Customs), Max Schaaf (4Q), and Jason Webber (ATR).
REVENGE RUN III Death Science and Malvista Productions Presents the Revenge Run, from start to finish. This run was born from an idea that friends on the East Coast and specifically the Southeast should have a run to call their own. Starting in Rocky Mount, NC and winding through the NC lowlands, the run is the kind of life event most people desire, but few experience. Crashes, engine mishaps, surprises, shakedown runs, pabst blue ribbon, cookouts, bonfires, island hopping on a motorcycle, roadside fixes, it's all here. If you've never experienced blazing down a narrow island 90 miles from land, ocean on either side of you and riding in a pack of 100 or so choppers, then I truly feel sorry for you. As far as feelings go, it's a pretty good one.
