hopefully i'll be able to put this thing back together

pray for me

bangers galore

i've been backing burton shred, Mark Sollars since he first appeared in the crapneto video's back in the daze. since then he killed it with the sandbox crew, and had solid parts every year. For this past year young mark filmed with the transworld snowboarding crew and put together one of the most amazing parts i've seen in a while. the kid rides fast, confident and goes massive off anything and everything; and although this is the remixed version of his twsnow part it clearly is one of the best parts of the year; oh yes, it is.
told ya.

as you can probably tell i am in full bike mode with the blog lately and with life in general. The ideas are running wild as i plan the next steps with my sporty; the hardtail is on its way and the bike will be getting stripped very soon. During this time, the following bikes are inspiring the build and will probably be reflected in the completed bike in some way shape or form. check out the awesomeness...

chicago willy's panhead. freakin awesome

hide mo co narrow chop. so awesome it deserves two shots

cool hardtail sporty

rapido tank sporty

and kim boyle's amazing 2000 sporty

new york riding

chopper dave is pretty well known in the motorcycle "scene" for his motorcycles, and blog filled with bikes, boobs and punk rock. he recently put together this great bit of riding footage through the streets of new york. While the music is not really my thing, the footage is awesome, especially from 2:20 on, as Chop Dave and crew put the hammer down. one thing for sure is that the roads are bumpy in new york, and hand shifting is not my thing

buzz lightyear! what!!!!!

recently, i spent a few days in england to see my amazing cousin Kam marry a classy dude named, Toby. While enjoying the festivities, I was told a story that was too good to be true. Word was that while out gardening, Toby's Dad actually came across a carrot shaped like Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story. The story was publized in the news and upon my return i just had to look it up. Click here for the story, and check the pics below for the proof. One thing i have to say is that the buzz lightyear carrot easily eclipses the virgin mary on the toast miracle.

OG buzz lightyear, and the carrot below

heysus! that carrot is a freak of nature!
