Million miles.... GOOD friends.... FUCK snow.....

So, last week I split my place and headed out on a voyage to get my trike sorted.......

I went to Michigan then headed to Buffalo to see El Fingerino.... down to Brooklyn to see the Mayor...... through Philly to see the Squares........... then on to have coffee with Jason in VA...................... shit it was a long trip........

When I left NC it was sunny and 50 degrees........ by the time I hit Michigan to meet up with Death Wish Ethan it was cold as hell and the heat in my truck was like 10 hobos trying to snuggle around a candle............

I've been searching for a rear end for my trike forever..... Ethan saved the day......... the price was right and the rear end is RAD..... Ethan has a sick shop set up and welcomed me in like we were old friends...... it was rad meeting you and thanks for the hook up!

I pulled out of Ethan's spot about 9 pm and decided I'd head for Buffalo............................ it was all good till the snow started...... bald tires plus snow plus sleepy plus no plowing equals shit............. I did a 1080 on the interstate and stopped facing on coming traffic.... thankfully there were no cars coming so I backed up and hit it again..... the trip that was supposed to take about 5 hours took almost 10........ made it to Fingers' place at 5 am................... he and Blondie treated me like family..... hooked me up with a great spot to sleep..... great food..... and I got to inspect Fingers' lair....... it was beautiful to see you again..... it doesn't happen enough................






























By the way, those skulls are TRENCH art..... made out of real bone by US soldiers during WW II...... how rad is that?


Tomorrow I'll post some shots of the second half of the trip............... Brooklyn........... my trike is gonna BLOW MINDS........ Vander was a TRUE FRIEND as always....... but more on that tomorrow...........
