Gunpowder Kid..

Somewhere out in those vibrating heat waves there's the lost child.  Wandering the neighborhood gathering discarded fireworks from the 4th, scraping out un-burnt gunpowder into a mason jar.  A real hero he'll be, low-voltage garage door wire, 9-volt battery.  Riding down the torn up road on a bmx in big knee wading boots, jumping ruts and throw it over the fence.  Everyone had their own story for how the cliff came to be, he figured the water did it.  A tree overhung the slope, barely secured by scarred roots, below the water was roaring as it fell off into a dark tunnel.  Today wasn't a day to blow the homemade fire-jar.  The creek was too brown, the air too muggy.  Weight off one's shoulders in a place of no expectation, times more like a crayon than a novel.

Born Free 6

Well, there's always an excuse not to go or not to ride there.  Although circumstances didn't align correctly for riding south...  This year Jim made his way down as one of the many journalists, and to see what it's all about.  Basically the breakdown I got was that it's eye opening, people are building the craziest bikes, whether they're famous or not.  Also that the preconceived notions of cool guy contest, and talking shit out of insecurity, envy or lack of ambition is pointless.  We are all into this for different reasons and all take it as far as effort and funding will let us.  All in all it's great seeing time and imagination spent on personal creations.  The soul has not been sucked out.  The real world exists.  Thanks for the photo report dude!!







"Yesterday I sat on a Amtrak train next to a Hungarian man who told me his story of when he came to the US. He worked hard and sacrificed motorcycle racing just so his family could have a good life here. It made it think of how many spoiled people born are so quick to complain about living here, and it bums me out. I love this country."  -Jerome D'James Baaske

Have a great holiday weekend!

Grass Field event number....

Fuck a grass field... 
Haggard in the Woods III will be tucked deep this year, the dates are July 26, 27, 28...  Rounding up a big group to cruise out together this year, early Saturday.  We're hoping to get our hands out of the gutters and asses out of the lawn chairs this month and bring a new haggard bike into the family.  Get dialin' buddies!!!

A couple months in Jim's camera....

3 bikes blown apart in a dusty rectangle, motor builds while grinders plunge, it all worked out, really learned how to take it slow, too much mess, chill man, each night defined a space.  When the leather couch was breathing we realized the meaning of choppers.  So in that realization our bikes handle unlike sports.

Less words, more effort will result in better times.  If you can't keep up on it, don't talk about it. 
Thanks Jim for capturing the pieces...  Lets get campin'..  

5 buck hotrod, three on the tree, let's just forget that morning, good hanging dudes!...

 In the mechanical world when delusions become dialed the universe aligns to erase the thought.  Throw him a beer, forget it.  Dust off the bench, lower the lights and stare at the beast.

Mattress Sale..

Haggard Souvenirs  Forgot these were laying around, once all the generic-ass shirts are gone the fancy art shirts and hats can go to print.  This is no retail store, just small batches from working-class folks.
